The year is 1919 and a man has returned from the First World War trenches with life-changing injuries. Since returning home, he has struggled to re-adapt to normal life and has fallen into a serious financial peril as a result. In an effort to get his life back in order, he and his family move to a remote country manor owned by his immediate family. But the house has a troubled history of its own, with its previous occupant having been implicated in a number of murders. Are these rumours of past evils merely the product of superstition? Or does something far more sinister await the family within the house's walls?

What if no one ever had to die alone? In 1923, in the mountains of eastern Peru, a stranger approaches eleven injured men shortly after a battle has ended. He assists only six of the wounded, all of whom die shortly after he sees to their needs; then, without a word or glance toward the other five, he leaves. The remaining men survive the journey home, telling the story of the man with bright-blue eyes and a scar upon his right hand. The tale becomes the legend of El Padre, passed down to their children and their children's children. As time goes by, the legend spreads beyond Peru, crossing decades and continents. In 2008, New York investigative reporter Sam Noll has a front-page political scandal in the works-that is, until his editor reassigns him to chronicle the El Padre sightings. Although he's frustrated, Sam slowly lets the new article become personal and persuades a quirky colleague, Ira Nevins, to assist him in the search. The discoveries lead Sam to some dangerous destinations and bring him new revelations about El Padre's intentions-and hopefully his true identity. When Sam uncovers a strange pattern to the sightings, however, it places him on the direct path of a man many believe to be some type of angel. Although Sam is determined to solve the mystery, he may be facing something more sinister than he originally believed-and finding the answer may be the last thing he ever does.

Not a few figures—writers, poets, activists, teachers—have focused on the presence of the Holy One in the ordinary, on the many possibilities of worldly spirituality. In this book, pastor, teacher, and theologian Michael Plekon introduces us to several persons of faith from both the Western and Eastern Church traditions to illumine God’s presence in everyday living: the world as sacrament. In this discovery of liturgy and life entwined, Plekon shows how these lives, and our own lives, are texts about looking for and following God in everyday existence.

The Seventh Sacrament is the fifth in the Nic Costa series, David Hewson's detective novels of love and death in Italy. There’s an entire underground city down there . . . houses and temples, entire streets. I talked to a couple of the cavers Leo called in. They hero-worshipped Giorgio. The man had been to places the rest of them could only dream about. Giorgio Bramante, a Roman archaeology professor, was master of the hidden world beneath the earth – until the day he lost his young son, Alessio, to a group of students intent on re-creating a centuries-old ritual to a long-banished god. His rage knew no bounds and, in a frenzy, he beat one of the students to death. Released from prison fourteen years later, Giorgio is bent upon a terrifying revenge on all those he blames for the loss of his son. Inspector Leo Falcone, a member of the original investigating team, is one of his targets. And Nic Costa, watching Falcone move relentlessly into the man’s merciless grip, realizes the answer must lie in solving a cold case that, like the forgotten Alessio Bramante, has long been regarded as dead and buried for good.

When Grayson Guillory's mother died, she helped her father get rid of the empty vodka and pill bottles next to the body. It wouldn't do for the governor of Louisiana to have a wife who committed suicide after years of mental illness—especially just as he’s contemplating the presidency. Grayson's husband—her father's speechwriter—helps him keep the story quiet, and the family doctor makes sure the cause of death will be listed as a heart attack. But Grayson has a problem. When she thought she was helping her father cover up a suicide, she might actually have been covering up a murder. Because Grayson's mother left a videotape hidden among her personal effects in which she claims her life is in danger. Of course, Grayson's mother did suffer from paranoid delusions. And maybe Grayson does too: manic depression is a highly hereditary illness. But just because she’s paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get her...

Spiritual Caregiving As Secular Sacrament

'This is not a book about theory, it is a book about life. This volume is in the excellent Practical Theology Series published by Jessica Kingsley and under the general editorship of John Swinton of Aberdeen University who writes the Foreword. Ray Anderson is an American pastor and academic of many years standing. His starting point is (pre) theoretical, arguing vigorously that practical theology has a particular end in view and therefore differs from the empirical (social) sciences. It is well worth sticking with his argument to see how it works out in practice. Early chapters with phrases in their titles such as "Spiritual Praxis of Practical Theology", "Integrative Gestalt of the Human Self", "Ecological Matrix of the Human Person" and "Social Ecology of Human Spirituality" might seem heavy going at times. Don't be put off! The reader is rewarded with highly relevant contemporary understandings of spirituality illuminating and illuminated by both Scripture and modern theologians and therapists. This book comes highly recommended for anyone involved in the field of mental health care.' - Leveson Newsletter 'This is a book that deserves to be read, and perhaps re-read, by those who deliver spiritual care and wish to reflect on what they do.' - Scottish Journal of Healthcare Chaplaincy Bridging the gap between clinical and religious professionals, this book examines how both can understand the spiritual needs of the individual, and the importance of this spirituality in bringing about health and wholeness. With an emphasis on mental health, the author explores spirituality in the context of the individual and of society, and discusses how those practicing pastoral or health care can deal with the issues raised outside of any specific religious ideas or practice. Taking an ecological approach to understanding the needs of the individual, Ray S. Anderson shows how professionals can help people move towards a more positive state in the face of pain, distress and illness. Moving religious professionals away from the pursuit of simple edification, and those in health from purely medicalized approaches, Spiritual Caregiving as Secular Sacrament brings together professionals' roles in the context of spirituality to enable them to bring the greatest benefit to those in their care.
