From Whom No Secrets are Hid

The Psalms express the most elemental human emotions, representing situations in which people are most vulnerable, ecstatic, or driven to the extremities of life and faith. Many people may be familiar with a few Psalms, or sing them as part of worship. Here highly respected author Walter Brueggemann offers readers an additional use for the Psalms: as scripted prayers we perform to help us reveal ourselves to God. Brueggemann explores the rich historical, literary, theological, and spiritual content of the Psalms while focusing on various themes such as praise, lament, violence, and wisdom. He skillfully describes Israel's expression of faith as sung through the Psalms, situates the Psalmic liturgical tradition in its ancient context, and encourages contemporary readers to continue to perform them as part of their own worship experiences. Brueggemann's masterful take on the Psalms as prayers will help readers to unveil their hopes and fears before God and, in turn, feel God's grace unveiled to them.

The Men of Black Ops  Inc   Volume 2

An eBook box set of bestselling author Cindy Gerard’s Black Ops, Inc. books 4-6: Feel The Heat, Risk No Secrets, With No Remorse. FEEL THE HEAT Tough, beautiful, and blond, B.J. Chase, a covert operative at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), is assigned to the National Security Agency to find out if and how someone at NSA is leaking information about a top-secret new U.S. weapons program to terrorists. When NSA cryptologist Stephanie Tompkins brings suspicious intercepted messages to the attention of her division head, her superior is killed and Stephanie gets embroiled in a terrorist plot that implicates her as a traitor. Black Ops Inc. swings into action because Stephanie is the completely honorable and patriotic sister of one of their fallen comrades and BOI team member Raphael Mendoza is secretly in love with her. First, Stephanie is taken to a safe house where BOI agent Joe Greene will guard her. Then Colombian-born Rafe Mendoza and DIA agent B.J. are sent to Colombia by the Department of Defense to find and destroy the site where a replica of the new U.S. weapon is being constructed (according to Stephanie’s decoded intercepts). Posing as Rafe’s lover, B.J. goes to Medellin with Rafe who is using his family’s shady business connections to infiltrate the drug cartel bankrolling the weapon. As they carry out their deception, demolish the weapon, fake their own deaths and flee Colombia, Rafe and B.J. fall for each other much to their mutual surprise, just as Stephanie and Joe Greene do back in the States. RISK NO SECRETS When Black Ops, Inc. operative Wyatt Savage’s former girlfriend Sophie calls him out of the blue, desperately requesting his help, Wyatt flies down to El Salvador. He’s never stopped loving Sophie, even though she married his former best friend Hugh, who saved Wyatt's life more times than he can count when they worked together on secret missions for the CIA. Now Sophie is frantic because one of her students was abducted from the school she runs near the U.S. embassy in San Salvador. It appears that Sophie’s twelve-year-old daughter was the kidnapper’s target but they took the other girl by mistake. Wyatt is shocked when Sophie tells him that she and Hugh divorced two years ago, and she and her daughter hardly ever see him because he travels around the world protecting high-level business executives. With help from Sophie and two of his BOI brothers, Wyatt tracks down the kidnappers, but he alone undertakes the challenge of winning Sophie’s heart. WITH NO REMORSE Black Ops, Inc. operative Luke—Doc Holliday—Colter, is taking some much needed down time, making his way across the Peruvian Andes via rail, when banditos attack the moving train in the midnight hours. It soon becomes apparent that robbery is not their intent but the abduction of super model “Valentina,” who is traveling incognito while licking her wounds and recovering from a public scandal involving her ex-husband, high profile US Senator, Marcus Chamberlin. Luke whisks Valentina off the train in a daring escape but the two of them become the targets of a relentless manhunt. Enlisting the aid of Luke’s BOI teammates, they soon discover that Val’s intended abduction is linked to a plot put in play by an international gun smuggling alliance. The BOI team lead by Luke and with Val along as a necessary pawn, must race half way around the world to thwart a ruthless attack that would not only result in a devastating loss of life but destroy a tenuous peace the US and her allies have established in a vastly unstable part of the world.

Share No Secrets

Along the banks of the Ohio River, the small town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, has been the home of quiet pleasures and safety for Adrienne Reynolds and her fourteen-year-old daughter Skye since the death of Adrienne's husband four years ago. Their sense of safety is shattered, however, when Adrienne and Skye find the body of one of Adrienne's best friends, Julianna, in a once-elegant, now abandoned hotel named La Belle Riviere. La Belle has a long history of misfortunes, but Julianna's murder is the most gruesome. Evidence indicates Julianna that had a secret lover whom she met regularly in the hotel, and who could have been with her in her final moments. The only person who knows this lover's identity is the hotel caretaker, Claude Duncan. But Claude is quickly silenced-drugged and burned to death in his small cottage on the grounds of La Belle the night after Julianna's death. One by one, people close to Adrienne are brutally murdered, and it looks as though she and Skye are the next targets of a fierce killer with a shocking secret.

A Practical Guide to Delivering Personalisation

Personalisation means people, their families and carers having choice and control over their support on a day-to-day basis. To deliver personalised services, professionals and carers need to do more than just hand over financial control: they need to know what is important to a person, the best way to support them, how they communicate and how they make decisions. This book will show how to deliver personalisation through simple, effective and evidence-based person-centred practice that changes people's lives and helps them achieve the outcomes they want. It covers why person-centred practice is relevant to the personalisation agenda and what person-centred thinking and person-centred reviews are, introducing the tools that can help you carry them out. It also explores the relationship between person-centred plans and support plans, and how person-centred practice can be used in the journey of support through adulthood – from prevention or the management of long-term health conditions to reablement, recovery, support in old age and at the end of life. There is also a chapter on taking a person-centred approach to risk. This is an essential guide for all staff in health and social care including service providers, managers, practitioners and students.
