Detective Isabelle Carte is in love—with her job. It's all she needs and all she has time for. A dedicated and capable detective, she knows how to get the job done, regardless of the risk. Or so she thinks. When a stalker becomes obsessed with Isabelle and murders women to get her attention, her confidence is shaken. Isa takes refuge at her family’s lake cabin in rugged Northwestern Ontario. Little does she know how much her life is about to change. Alec Reed is at the lake to rebuild his family’s cabin and to make peace with a family tragedy that had happened years before. He’s on track—finishing up with the remodel, and ready to return to his flourishing business in Calgary—until a pesky female shows up with her lovable dog at the cabin on the other side of the lake. She manages to capsize her canoe, blame him for ungentlemanly behaviour, and then throws everything off kilter. Falling in love with a cop was not on his agenda, especially a cop who can’t seem to stay out of trouble. When Isa goes missing, Alec realizes there is only one thing he can do: find her. But in doing so, they have to face their feelings for each other. Can they overcome their differences?

The Life and Legacy of Martin Luther

Martin Luther changed Europe and, through Europe, the world. It was he who finally exposed the myth of a unified Latin Christendom, which was only held together by crusades, heresy hunts, Inquisition, and priestly magic. Though not the first radical thinker to challenge papal pretensions and the doctrines they were founded on, by his defiance Luther created the biggest cause célèbre of the age. But this renegade monk did not just split Europe into rival Protestant and Catholic camps. By urging Christians to read and interpret the Bible for themselves, he gave a religious boost to that emancipation of the individual we associate with the Renaissance. By putting men and women in charge of their own destinies he made a cultural impact which is incalculable. This first major biography in English for many years, by leading historian Derek Wilson, responds to recent Reformation scholarship to assess Luther's impact on his own and later ages. A warts-and-all study, it gives a vivid picture of a complex and driven man - courageous, stubborn, rumbustious, vulgar, erudite, self-opinionated - but a man of tireless energy and, above all, total conviction. For his achievements we can admire him. In his failings we can identify with him. Luther remains perpetually fascinating.

Questions And Consolations From The Book Of Job
Author: Christopher Ash

ISBN: 1844747891
Category: Religion

Why does a good God allow innocent suffering? Why does a just God act unfairly? Why does a sovereign God let disease and evil run rampant? These are not questions asked from the onlooker's armchair, nor from the academic's desk, but from the anguish of the sickbed and the frustration of the wheelchair. The problem of pain is considered with the heart as well as the head. Christopher Ash leads us through the biblical story of Job as we wrestle with these questions today. He honestly explores the lonely and cruel nature of suffering and whether God can be found in the midst of it. He exposes the shortcomings of Job's friends who deny the possibility of innocent suffering, and are unaware of the roles that Satan, the fall and the cross have to play. With compassion and clarity he takes the reader through Job's long debate with God - towards a humbling and hopeful resolution.

Kafka am Strand

„Kafka am Strand" ist der ungewöhnlichste Entwicklungs- und Liebesroman, den wir bisher von Japans Kultautor gelesen haben: zeitlos und ortlos, voller Märchen und Mythen, zwischen Traum und Wirklichkeit – und dabei voller Weisheit. „Als mein fünfzehnter Geburtstag gekommen war, ging ich von zu Hause fort, um in einer fernen, fremden Stadt in einem Winkel einer kleinen Bibliothek zu leben. Wenn ich alles der Reihe nach erzähle, brauche ich dafür wahrscheinlich eine Woche. Wenn ich stattdessen zunächst nur die wichtigen Punkte aufführe, dauert es ungefähr genauso lange. Das klingt vielleicht wie der Beginn eines Märchens. Aber es ist kein Märchen. In keinem Sinne.“ Der Erzähler dieser Zeilen heißt Kafka Tamura und seine Reise führt in Wirklichkeit aus der realen Welt hinaus in sein eigenes Inneres, entlang an den Ufern des Bewusstseins. Eine schicksalhafte Prophezeiung, der Geschichte von Ödipus gleich, lenkt Kafkas labyrinthischen Weg. „Kafka am Strand“ heißt das Bild an der Wand von Saeki, der rätselhaften Leiterin jener kleinen Bibliothek. Und „Kafka am Strand“ heißt auch der Song aus der Zeit, als Saeki noch Pianistin war und einen jungen Mann leidenschaftlich liebte, sie waren ein Paar wie Romeo und Julia. Die Wege des Erzählers Kafka kreuzen sich auf geheimnisvolle Weise mit den ihren und denen eines alten Mannes, der die Sprache der Katzen versteht und Spuren folgt, die in eine andere Welt weisen.
