The ruthless King Angus uses his order of Grey Knights as a means to oppress the powerful dragons and witches, and they retaliate by destroying human cities. When one young woman appears with the mark of both a dragon and a witch, she becomes a symbol of hope for the dragons and witches – and a symbol of fear for the King, who believes she’ll only bring doom upon humanity.

A woman habitually commits self-injury, ingesting light bulbs, a box of nails, zippers and a steak knife. A new mother is admitted with incessant visions of harming her child. A recent graduate, dressed in a tunic and declaring that love emanates from everything around him, is brought to A&E by his alarmed girlfriend. These are among the patients new physician Christine Montross meets during rounds at her hospital’s locked inpatient ward – and who we meet as she struggles to understand the mysteries of the mind, most especially when the tools of modern medicine are failing us. Beautifully written and deeply felt, Falling into the Fire is an intimate portrait of psychiatry and a moving reminder, in the words of the New York Times, of ‘our fragile, shared humanity’.

This volume provides an introduction to Borelli’s theory on the movement of animals and describes his theory and scientific experiments relating to the natural movements of bodies in a fluid environment. It describes in great detail why and how bodies which present with different magnitudes, weights and shapes move at a greater or a smaller velocity in certain proportion in the fluid environment. Originally published in Italian in 1667, then translated into Latin in 1686, the text of this volume has now been translated into English, making the text accessible to a wide readership. This volume is the second of two volumes that contain the Introduction and physical-mathematical illustrations necessary to understand Giovanni Alfonso Borelli’s work On the Movement of Animals, the founding text of seventeenth century biomechanics. The first volume, entitled On the Force of Percussion, demonstrates the nature of the energy of percussion, its causes, properties and effects.

For fans of American Gods, a dark, humorous, and richly written, dystopian fantasy about the unbreakable bonds of family and the undying strength of a mother's love. The end of the world begins as fire rains down from the heavens. Ancient gods are released from their prison, eager to reestablish their long-lost power. But Rachel Deneuve has bigger, more contemporary concerns than a divine war. Her son Adam is in the middle of a fight against leukemia, and Rachel is determined to keep focused on that battle. But when humans begin picking sides and the fighting escalates, their home in Baltimore becomes a war zone, one she can’t ignore. Desperate to stay away from the carnage—as well as the germ-ridden refugee center—Rachel and Adam flee to their remote mountain cottage, only to find their refuge marred by mutated, grotesque plants and animals. Eventually, the cancerous cells in Adam's body begin evolving as well, threatening his life and forcing Rachel to venture back into the eye of the storm. Left with no other choice but to sacrifice her own freedom for her son's safety, she must become an unwilling warrior in a battle unlike anything seen in millennia, or lose everything she holds dear.

This book is a credit to Jesus Christ, who sustained the author through repeated and prolonged abuses of unmentionable proportions for several decades. The #1 purpose of this book is to glorify Jesus who is the Great Physician of impossible shatters, abuse, and heart-shreds, even amid emotional comatose and poly-fragmented dissociation. The #2 purpose of the book is to identify with the broken, rejected, and abused and to commend you all for your strength and survival. It is written as a voice for all the survivors of abuse and for those who may be currently trapped as a victim. It is written as a source of inspiration to offer hope to those who are on the healing journey, or desire to begin this journey to hope, healing, and freedom. The #3 purpose of the book is as a resource for those who are open-minded enough to be willing to learn how to understand and help the broken and abused and receive a deeper comprehension of the realities they face. We cannot correctly represent Jesus if we cannot see the abused and brokenhearted through His eyes and heart. When we truly see them through His heart and eyes, we will be propelled into compassionate action just as Jesus was. This book addresses and gives hope for abuse issues and aftermath on every level that many may prefer to shove under the carpet. This includes not only the various abuses out there but some of the aftermath such as extreme emotional agony, suicide, dissociation, rejection, PTSD, and satanic bondage. The enemy of our soul loves darkness and delights to feed on the unresolved anguish and footholds that are buried in his closets. With God’s help, the enemy and his tactics must be exposed and those whom he has wounded and/or holds captive must be freed, for he is defeated through the blood of the Great Physician, Jesus Christ!

When it comes to having a desire to see things change, it is obvious that most Christians are ready for it! The problem is that churches have tried every program available, and yet they still feel that there is something missing from their ministry. This book takes a fresh look at ministry and challenges us to consider that we may have actually left God out of the ministry equation, by not realizing how desperately we need for Gods Spirit to set us on fire! Take a journey through the Bible and discover for yourself, how Gods fire is present when God is on the move! Discover how Gods fire reveals his character as well as our calling to be transformed into the image of Christ! You will also discover how being one of Gods Fire Starters can be one of the most exciting adventures of anyones life! Donald A. Broadwater was born in Roanoke, Virginia and spent most of his early life growing up around the Blue Ridge Mountains. He graduated from Covenant College and Westminster Theological Seminary, and for the past three decades, Don and his family have been on an adventure that has taken them from America to Australia. He is married to Gloria and has two grown children from their 37-year marriage. God has unfolded a unique ministry of discipleship that has sought to encourage people to take their next step on a Journey in Jesus. This ministry is needed because our journeys are as unique as God who is fashioning them for us. He has also spoken for church camps and seminars, which have included the international conference, Fire on the Mountain, on Mt. Tambourine in Queensland, Australia.
