End Times

release date: Sep 03, 2021
End Times
After Charles was filled with the Holy Spirit he had his first vision about the horrors facing unbelievers. In response, and fearing for his family, he began to soak up the Word of God ‘like a sponge’ under the instruction of amazingly dedicated Bible teachers, over a period of more than 40 years, which is reflected in this book. He is very concerned about complacent Christians presumptuously resting on God’s mercy and benefits unaware that God’s promises are always conditional depending on repentance. He became particularly interested in end-times, in the unity promised by Jesus in John 17 and in the prophetic days of the creation. God has given him the gift of interpreting the symbolism, used in the prophetic scriptures, which he hopes readers will appreciate. The prophetic elements in the life of Samson and the Temple of Solomon, elaborated in this book, will be new to the church.

Addition by Subtraction: God Turns Our Broken Pieces into Masterpieces

release date: Aug 04, 2021
Addition by Subtraction: God Turns Our Broken Pieces into Masterpieces
God turns broken pieces into masterpieces. In his book, Addition By Subtraction, author David Ralston invites readers to join him on a journey from the shame and brokenness of their past to lasting hope for the future. Where the world’s way claims that change comes through a complex formula of mental health methods, behavior modification, and self-help disciplines, Dr. Ralston’s TURN approach is built on the premise that the solution isn’t within a person, the problem is. He then meticulously details a biblical, Christ-centered pathway of self-examination, deep vulnerability, surrendering control, and systematically exchanging false beliefs for God’s truth. This book invites the reader to turn from the pain of their past to hope and wholeness found only in Jesus. On this journey toward authenticity, an individual begins to discover genuine heart change and an unfathomable hope. Not just another untried theory, Dr. Ralston’s well-proven TURN model combines the wisdom of his real-life experiences with abandonment, addiction, and divorce, with the credibility of his extensive study, training, and experience as a doctoral level Christian Counselor. Passing shame and brokenness down to children has long been a generational norm in American society. By learning to live a transparent, surrendered life, God miraculously changes a person from the inside out, introducing a renewed and unshakable hope for generations to come.

My friend, I do not believe you are a racist. Melvin Gravely eloquently accomplishes what many have undoubtedly wished to do: talk openly to someone we know about race in the United States today.

Dear White Friend is a forthright, collegial conversation via chapters in the form of letters, each with a combination of personal reflection and meaningful hard facts. Gravely challenges the reader but without judgment or indictment. His depth of thought, deftness of expression, and clear, layman’s terms make for an urgent call to begin to close the gap between races in America. The book presents an invitation to understand three questions at the heart of the issue: What is really going on with race in our country? Why must we care? And what can we do about it together? In the end, Gravely calls on us to ask ourselves, “What is my role in all of this?” After reading Dear White Friend, readers will understand why their answer to his question can change everything.

From one of the world''s preeminent leadership coaches, an insightful, indispensable guide to effective leadership. For the first time, leadership expert Jeffrey Hull shares the secrets, strategies, and science underlying his, and his clients'', successes. Interweaving real-life stories with practical tips and the latest evidence-based research, he equips readers with the insights they need to thrive in today''s world. We are in the age of the postheroic leader. Once, to move up the corporate ladder and succeed at the top, you simply had to set goals, motivate the troops, delegate to underlings, and groom a successor--probably one who looked and behaved just like you. But this white knight has become an anachronism. Whether a person is twenty-five or fifty, if they''re leading a team now, chances are that they''re managing a kaleidoscope of people from a variety of cultures, across a range of ages, all of whom are wired together 24/7. These changing demographics and structures have led to a seismic shift in terms of the tools needed to successfully manage and grow within a company: charisma and strategic thinking abilities now matter less than qualities such as vulnerability and relatability. Based on his popular classes with Harvard Medical School physicians and New York University business students, Hull has identified the six key elements that leaders in this new workplace need to succeed, known as F.I.E.R.C.E.: Flexibility, Intentionality, Emotional Intelligence, Realness, Collaboration, and Engagement. From start-ups to universities to Fortune 500 companies, he''s been able to help leaders across the board develop the skill sets that have advanced their careers and won them accolades.

An Outsider's Guide to Humans
WINNER OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY SCIENCE BOOK PRIZE An instruction manual for life, love, and relationships by a brilliant young scientist whose Asperger''s syndrome allows her--and us--to see ourselves in a different way...and to be better at being human Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at the age of eight, Camilla Pang struggled to understand the world around her. Desperate for a solution, she asked her mother if there was an instruction manual for humans that she could consult. With no blueprint to life, Pang began to create her own, using the language she understands best: science. That lifelong project eventually resulted in An Outsider''s Guide to Humans, an original and incisive exploration of human nature and the strangeness of social norms, written from the outside looking in--which is helpful to even the most neurotypical thinker. Camilla Pang uses a set of scientific principles to examine life''s everyday interactions: - How machine learning can help us sift through data and make more rational decisions - How proteins form strong bonds, and what they teach us about embracing individual differences to form diverse groups - Why understanding thermodynamics is the key to seeking balance over seeking perfection - How prisms refracting light can keep us from getting overwhelmed by our fears and anxieties, breaking them into manageable and separate "wavelengths" Pang''s unique perspective of the world tells us so much about ourselves--who we are and why we do the things we do--and is a fascinating guide to living a happier and more connected life.

Tallis

release date: Aug 11, 2020
Tallis
The composer Thomas Tallis (c. 1505 - November 1585) lived and worked through much of the turbulent Tudor period in England. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he did not just react to radical change: he thrived on it. He helped invent new musical styles to meet the demands of the English Reformation. He revived and reimagined older musical forms for a new era. Fewer than a hundred of his works have survived, but they are incredibly diverse, from miniature settings of psalms and hymns to a monumental forty-voice motet. In this new biography, author Kerry McCarthy traces Tallis''s long career from his youthful appointment at Dover Priory to his years as a senior member of the Chapel Royal, revisiting the most important documents of his life and a wide variety of his musical works. The book also takes readers on a guided journey along the River Thames to the palaces, castles, and houses where Tallis made music for the four monarchs he served. It ends with reflections on Tallis''s will, his epitaph (whose complete text McCarthy has recently rediscovered), and other postmortem remembrances that give us a glimpse of his significant place in the sixteenth-century musical world. Tallis will be treasured by performers, scholars, Tudor enthusiasts, and anyone interested in English Renaissance music.

A History of the Diocese of Charleston

release date: Jun 01, 2020
A History of the Diocese of Charleston
In 1820, the Catholic Diocese of Charleston was established, and Bishop John England arrived from Ireland. His new diocese encompassed North and South Carolina, Georgia and, for a time, Haiti. From 1859 to 1885, when Patrick Lynch and Henry Northrop were bishops of Charleston, the diocese included the Bahama Islands. However, the history of Catholics in the diocese--which now covers all of South Carolina--began much earlier. The arrival of Spanish settlers and missionary priests dated back more than 150 years before there was a diocese on American soil. Sister Pam Smith charts the history of the diocese from the first words of prayer uttered on Santa Elena in the sixteenth century through the interfaith singing of a reformed slaveholder''s hymn at a painful funeral in the twenty-first century.

As the local community encounters a series of gruesome murders, Jared notices that several of his research subjects are experiencing unusual feelings of aggression. As the murders continue, so do Jared’s observations. In particular, he detects that one of his lab colleagues has been exhibiting off-the-scale signs of rage with unusual muscle gain. When Jared confronts his mentor, the prominent Dr. Ray Jackson, regarding his suspicions, he’s told that he’s letting his analytic mind get the best of him. As Jared settles and resumes his research on nutritional supplements, body composition and fitness, he asks himself several questions: Could he be jumping to conclusions? Could his colleague be involved in the local murders? Or, is something more horrific at play?
