Book Summary:

“O’Dell could be Reacher’s long-lost twin.” —Lee Child Rediscover where it all began for Maggie O’Dell in this intense thriller by New York Times bestselling author Alex Kava. On July 17, a convicted serial killer, Ronald Jeffreys was executed for three heinous murders. He went to his grave with a terrible truth no one would listen to. Three months later another body is found killed in the same style as Jeffreys’ victims. Sheriff Nick Morelli knows he isn’t equipped to handle the killer who is terrorizing his small Nebraska community. He’s grateful when the FBI sends one of their best criminal profilers, special agent Maggie O’Dell. Maggie quickly recognizes this is someone who has killed before. When another victim is found dead and a third kidnapped, Nick and Maggie realize they’re running out of time. And the terrible truth becomes clear. Ronald Jeffreys may have been convicted of crimes he didn’t commit. Originally published in 2000 “Meet Kava’s FBI special agent Maggie O’Dell. But beware—it could be the start of a new addiction.” —Peterborough Evening Telegraph, UK “Kava’s writing is reminiscent of Patricia Cornwell in her prime.” —Mystery Ink “This debut thriller pumps the suspense out. Maggie is gutsy and appealing as an FBI agent facing constant danger.” —Library Journal “Kava proves her mastery of the thriller.” —BookPage

Book Summary:

Saint Thomas Aquinas has been admired throughout the ages for his philosophical brilliance and his theological sanity, but author and professor Peter Kreeft thinks the practical spiritual wisdom of Aquinas is just as amazing. In this book, Kreeft brings together 358 useful, everyday insights from Aquinas' masterpiece the Summa Theologiae. He pairs these easily digestible quotes from the Summa with his own delightfully written commentary in order to answer the kinds of questions real people ask their spiritual directors. These 358 passages from the Summa have helped Kreeft in his own struggles to grow closer to the Lord. His practical, personal, and livable advice is the fruit of his labors to apply the insights of Aquinas to his own quest for sanctity, happiness, and union with God.

Book Summary:

12 May 1940. Westminster, London, England: the early days of World War II. Again. Raybould Marsh, one of "our" Britain's best spies, has travelled to another Earth in a desperate attempt to save at least one timeline from the Cthulhu-like monsters who have been observing our species from space and have already destroyed Marsh's timeline. In order to accomplish this, he must remove all traces of the supermen that were created by the Nazi war machine and caused the specters from outer space to notice our planet in the first place. His biggest challenge is the mad seer Gretel, one of the most powerful of the Nazi creations, who has sent a version of herself to this timeline to thwart Marsh. Why would she stand in his way? Because she has seen that in all the timelines she dies and she is determined to stop that from happening, even if it means destroying most of humanity in the process. And Marsh is the only man who can stop her. Necessary Evil is the stunning conclusion to Ian Tregillis's Milkweed series.

Book Summary:

"This book explores the underlying rationales for preventive detention as a tool in this war on terror; analyzes the legal obstacles to creating a preventive detention regime; discusses how Israel and Britain have dealt with incapacitation and interrogation of terrorists; and compares several alternative ideas to the administration's enemy combatant policy under a methodology that looks at questions of lawfulness, the balance between liberty and security, and institutional efficiency. In the end, this book recommends using the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to monitor a narrow regime of preventive detention only to be used under certain prescribed circumstances where interrogation and/or incapacitation are the justifications. This book is an essential reference for collections in American studies, political science, and national security studies."--BOOK JACKET.

Book Summary:

In self-forgiveness, the most important thing to remember is that God cannot forgive us unless we forgive ourselves, the true us, the one that no one sees. It is time to bury the skeletons, place the worms back in the soil, and defeat this tactic of the devil: self-unforgiveness. It is high time we face ourselves in the mirror and look at our true selves and at our true identity beyond the facade, then replace it with God's image and see who we really are. For it says clearly in the Word of God, in 1 Cor. 13:12 (KJV), "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." So now look, look hard, and you will see in the mirror the image of God, designed to forever worship Him for all eternity in Spirit and truth (John 4:23). God is my guidance in writing this book. Every word is inspired by Him, even the format when something is written. Again, as we begin this journey together, I must warn you there will be triggers, memories, and other things that are too harsh for a new Christian. This is for only mature Christians, period. This journey is not for the faint of heart, but I say, do not lose heart. There is freedom at the end of this road of Necessary Evil: The Path of Self-Forgiveness. We will cover the following in this book:What are the Types of Forgiveness and Their Definition?Where I Am Coming From?How It Affected MeWhat God Has to Say DoubtAlbert Allen: Journey Is the Destination and the Destination Is the Journey

Book Summary:

On the Southern border of the United States in 2018, the decision was made to implement a separation policy among refugees and migrant families arriving at the border – and so a group of government employees left their homes, bidding farewell to their families as they went to work, and began to separate hundreds of children from their families, forcefully taking them to holding centres. Developing Hannah Arendt’s analysis of the banality of evil, The Path to Mass Evil demonstrates how the most educated, sophisticated and advanced societies in human history have the potential to descend into profound inhumanity and in the extreme can turn into enormous killing machines, implementing mass murder on a vast scale. Suitable for undergraduates and graduates in philosophy, sociology, psychology and religion, Michael Hardiman reveals how traditional understandings of morality fail to grasp how ordinary citizens become collaborators and engage in a range of levels of evildoing. He also highlights the necessity of confronting this evil in the increasingly divided and antagonistic world in which we find ourselves today.

Book Summary:

Climate change is arguably the great problem confronting humanity, but we have done little to head off this looming catastrophe. In The Perfect Moral Storm, philosopher Stephen Gardiner illuminates our dangerous inaction by placing the environmental crisis in an entirely new light, considering it as an ethical failure. Gardiner clarifies the moral situation, identifying the temptations (or "storms") that make us vulnerable to a certain kind of corruption. First, the world's most affluent nations are tempted to pass on the cost of climate change to the poorer and weaker citizens of the world. Second, the present generation is tempted to pass the problem on to future generations. Third, our poor grasp of science, international justice, and the human relationship to nature helps to facilitate inaction. As a result, we are engaging in willful self-deception when the lives of future generations, the world's poor, and even the basic fabric of life on the planet is at stake. We should wake up to this profound ethical failure, Gardiner concludes, and demand more of our institutions, our leaders and ourselves. "This is a radical book, both in the sense that it faces extremes and in the sense that it goes to the roots." --Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews "The book's strength lies in Gardiner's success at understanding and clarifying the types of moral issues that climate change raises, which is an important first step toward solutions." --Science Magazine "Gardiner has expertly explored some very instinctual and vitally important considerations which cannot realistically be ignored. --Required reading." --Green Prophet "Gardiner makes a strong case for highlighting and insisting on the ethical dimensions of the climate problem, and his warnings about buck-passing and the dangerous appeal of moral corruptions hit home." --Times Higher Education "Stephen Gardiner takes to a new level our understanding of the moral dimensions of climate change. A Perfect Moral Storm argues convincingly that climate change is the greatest moral challenge our species has ever faced - and that the problem goes even deeper than we think." --Peter Singer, Princeton University

Book Summary:

There comes a time for most individuals when we weigh our assets and concerns, and decide where to focus our future efforts. Billy Hawkins, however, has two assets that many would consider liabilitiesa degree of moral flexibility and a borderline psychotic drive to protect the vulnerable. As he enters college, Billy finds himself enraged by the increasing reports of sexual abuse by Catholic Priests. He finds most disturbing the Priests betrayal of children and adolescents in their charge. After making a radical change of academic pursuits in graduate school, Billy strikes an alliance with the director of a Catholic seminary in southern California. Monsignor Montalvo has been running his own crusade to encourage the Church to mend its ways, but with little success. The pace of Necessary Evil accelerates as the activities of Billy and Montalvo combine to provide an unmistakable message to the Church regarding its sanctioned abuse of the young.

Book Summary:

Imagine a universe without laws. In heaven, Lucifer persuaded a third of the angels to join his rebellion by appealing to the wicked angels' desire to do evil. Ridding themselves of God and His laws that kept them from doing evil, they would be free to do what they wanted to do without fear of punishment. In the ensuring battle, Lucifer and his followers were cast down to earth. So where on earth are they? Demon spirits need a human body to do the devils work. "Even from your own numbers," Paul forewarned the church, "men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw disciples after them" (Matthew 13:18). Though demonic spirits disguise their evil intent by masquerading under cloaks of respectability as Judas did, their false teachings and evil deeds expose them for who they really serve. Evil opposes everything God has established. Satan's intent to abolish God's laws and his desire to be worshiped "like God" has never changed. What Satan failed to achieve in heaven, he today has achieved on earth. There's an abundance of ignorance because there's a famine of the truth on the land. Under the banner of "Christianity," Satan's minions have spun a web of lies in the upper echelon of our government and in many books on religion and American history that obscures the truth and shapes people's thinking. Millions have been taken captive by lies, and the only lifesaving antidote for someone in a comatose state of ignorance is God's truth. Evil is often necessary to draw a nation or an individual back to God (1 Corinthians 5:5). This book is a guide warning those, escaping the fire by God's grace, about the devil's snares that want to snatch them back into the fire. It's a guide for criminal justice reformers and a guide for dragon hunters in search of the truth. Tracking Satan's scent by following his signature traits will take you to where Satan has his throne today. The place where he is being worshiped "like God" and the churches and the government institutions from where his minions have been working to abolish God's laws and Christian teachings that once governed the true Christian Church and the nation.

Book Summary:

This book presents a comprehensive study of Oakeshott's conception of political activity. The author first examines Oakeshott in the contexts of liberal, conservative and Idealist thought, and then presents a detailed interpretation of the change in his conception of politics in the context of British postwar political thought. It is argued that Oakeshott's conception of political activity shifted from a near contempt of politics towards the applauding of politics as a deliberative and reflective activity. The development is disclosed by examining the change in his key concepts, such as authority and tradition. Accordingly, some rather unexpected aspects of Oakeshott's thought, such as his close relationship to the linguistic turn, appear. The author argues that although Oakeshott cannot exactly be classified as belonging to that group of political philosophers for whom politics represents a superior human activity, his later work presents an important and original view of politics as an art of contingency.

Book Summary:

A diary is usually a personal record, where you write your secrets, your innermost thoughts and feelings. It's something you keep for yourself, something you don't share with others. But not this diary. The “Diary of a Human Target” is different from any other, because it is not intended to be kept secret; on the contrary, it is meant to be read by as many people as possible. It could be the diary of every person who feels isolated and trapped in a hostile world and can't stay silent any more. It reflects a longing for real communication in an uncommunicative society. Page by page, it exposes the subtle but inexorable war which is continually waged throughout human society, as it unfolds the tormented youth of Yvonne Fezarris: A free mind who is constantly targeted by visible and invisible evil forces and seeks to know the reason why -until she reaches an incredible conclusion...

Book Summary:

Though he made his fortune pioneering practical uses for electricity, Frederick Lawson was also an active and vocal adherent of New Thought philosophies, early "New Age" thinking that promoted the belief in "mind over matter" and in the concept that godly powers could be found within us all. This classic book-first published in 1912 and the textbook of the organization Lawson founded, the Society for Spreading the Knowledge of True Prayer-explores the new realms of human experience New Thought thinking was uncovering, including: . Unaccounted-for human capacity and animal wonders . Hell as an individual state of human consciousness . New truths "hateful to the sluggard" . Proof of our knowledge of Heaven . Constant conscious communion with God . The value of prophecy . Instantaneous healing . The collective force of foolish beliefs . And much, much more. British engineer, businessman, and author FREDERICK LAWRENCE RAWSON (1859-1923) also wrote How to Bring About Permanent Peace (1916), Secret of Divine Protection (1918) and Nature of True Prayer (1920).

Book Summary:

A transdisciplinary Mormon history, this book is a work of American religious history, theology, science history, and cultural and historical geography. It deconstructs the “race” creationism, White supremacy, and Christian imperialism of leading interwar Mormon theologian B.H. Roberts. Roberts hoped to introduce the front-rank post-Darwinian, scientific, and philosophical postulates of his time—polygeny, preadamitism, electromagnetism, idealism, the multiverse, infinity, and interstellar travel—to an increasingly fundamentalist Mormon establishment. Church authorities, however, including eventual “prophet” Joseph Fielding Smith Jr., proscribed and rejected Roberts’ modernist manuscript, The Truth, The, Way, The Life: An Elementary Treatise on Theology, circa 1930. Paradoxically, however, Roberts’ thinking appeared uncited in Smith’s 1954 theology, Man, His Origin and Destiny. Here, Smith accelerated Roberts’ racism toward African Americans, while reviling science, philosophy, and free thought. This book contextualizes all such fundamentalist Mormon thinking within today’s struggle for social and environmental justice, and especially the Black Lives Matter movement.

Book Summary:

People differ in terms of how morally deserving they are. And it is a good thing if people get what they deserve. Accordingly, it is important to work out an adequate theory of moral desert. But while certain aspects of such a theory have been frequently discussed in the philosophical literature, many others have been surprisingly neglected. For example, if it is indeed true that it is morally good for people to get what they deserve, does it always do the same amount of good when someone gets what they deserve? Or does it matter how deserving the person is? If we cannot give someone exactly what they deserve, is it better to give too much-or better to give too little? Does being twice as virtuous make you twice as deserving? And how are we to take into account the thought that what you deserve depends in part on how others are doing? The Geometry of Desert explores a number of these less familiar questions, using graphs to illustrate the various possible answers. The result is a more careful investigation into the nature of moral desert than has ever previously been offered, one that reveals desert to have a hidden complexity that most of us have failed to recognize.
