Discover how the final teachings of Jesus can give you hope and inspiration in a world full of turmoil.Are you disheartened by senseless suffering and violence? Are you a Christian searching for encouraging guidance? Pastor Daniel Sweet and author Andrew Gilmore understand your struggle. After helping thousands find encouragement through the gospel message, they’ve teamed up to help you weather this troubled world and rediscover your faith.  The Last Lessons of Christ is a powerful guide to help you be a light in the darkness and renew your convictions. At a time when so many Christians seem to have resigned themselves to despair or apathy, it is useful to remember that Jesus taught something radically different.On the road to Jerusalem for the last time before his crucifixion, Jesus used every precious second he had left to prepare his disciples for his absence. Whether by miracle, object lesson, or parable, Jesus focused on one thing: faith. In contrast to the watered down version of faith we see in mass media throughout Western culture, Jesus taught that faith can move mountains.Listen to The Last Lessons of Christ to rediscover the type of faith Jesus taught his own disciples!  1.

Life is full of strange and awkward events seemingly designed to annoy us. To Thomas Sullivan, these trials and tribulations are actually meant to entertain us. Within these pages you'll encounter a guy who finds humor in: Searching for a cozy, old-school barber in a gentrifying neighborhood, but landing at a frantic corporate salon that smells like a meth lab. Running late for a flight, only to find himself on The Terrorist Watch List. Watching The Peoples Court with a stranger in the world's gloomiest bar. Surviving condemnation from the hard-working folks at the Department of Motor Vehicles. Fixing up a house when he knows nothing about home improvement. And much, much more wonderful absurdity. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Gilmore. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/007824/bk_acx0_007824_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

A deranged man hears voices urging him, "Kill the doctors!" Masquerading as a patient, he is admitted into a ward at Isleworth General Hospital, a sprawling converted Victorian workhouse directly beneath the flightpath into Heathrow Airport. When he attempts to stab the medical senior registrar during a ward round, slim, slight student-nurse Emma Gibbs intervenes to save the doctor's life. A patient is murdered on Ward Four: death by suffocation. Detective Superintendent Charles Butter and his sergeant Timothy Gately investigate. No motive is found; the killing appears to be random. Next, surgical registrar James Fergusson dies - again by suffocation. All who ever came in contact with him seem to have wanted him dead: two rival Soho criminal gangs, the medical senior registrar Gilmore Cameron (with whom he had previously crossed swords), even Matron. To add to the list of suspects, the police discover another of the hospital's doctors had been an army sniper, responsible for the death of the two leaders of the EOKA organisation in Cyprus during the terrorist uprising. Could this be the killer? The murders impinge on the lives of Ward Sister Celia Foster (searching for the love she had lost as a teenager), and the senior house officer Adam Turner, who has fallen under the spell of Emma Gibbs. Adam becomes the third victim. His twin, Simon, has communicated remotely with Adam since they were very small. Now - even miles away in his Hampstead general practice - he senses that his brother is in mortal danger, and rushes to save him; but will he be in time? 1. Language: English.

Bluestocking in Patagonia
9,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the 1890s in a bizarre social experiment, a band of over 500 Australians - mostly men and just three single women - sailed to South America to create a communal Utopia, a New Australia, in the jungles of Paraguay. One of them was a red-headed schoolteacher Mary Cameron, a poet and feminist, who left the writer Henry Lawson behind, despairing on the wharf. Politics in the Australian colony were soon tumultuous. Mary, rejected by one man she loved, married another, had a son, and she and her near-illiterate shearer husband Will Gilmore left Paraguay for the vast Patagonian sheep estancias of southern Argentina to earn their passages home. Anne Whitehead chronicles the full history of the Australian experiment in Paraguay, including an account of the descendants of those who remained, in her award-winning Paradise Mislaid: In Search of the Australian Tribe of Paraguay (1998). In this second work she focuses on Mary's four years at the colony and, in particular, on her two fraught and previously little-known years in Patagonia. Mary's independent spirit soon offended the strict rules of the estancia ruling class and she was forced to leave her husband for the tough frontier town of Río Gallegos. Speaking little Spanish, she supported her child for almost six months. Dame Mary later became an Australian national icon, campaigned for many causes including Aboriginal rights and she is on the $10 note today. In a remarkable blend of biography and travel writing, Anne Whitehead follows in Mary's footsteps in South America, searching out places where she lived and traces of her stay, during a period of severe economic depression and political repression in Argentina, just as there was in Mary's experience. She brings to life a testing time in one of the harshest places on earth. 'Patagonia is a rich source of curious incidents and eccentric people, and Whitehead makes the most of these, describing the Welsh towns of Trelew and Puerto Madryn... a robbery pulled off by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid; Charles Darwin's forays from the Beagle; W.H. Hudson's delight in the birds of the region, and the search for the giant sloth carried out by Mr Hesketh Prichard of the Daily Express. She mentions Bruce Chatwin, who turned up unannounced at the great estancia of Killik Aike, where the Gilmores had lived for some months, only to be sent away 'with a flea in his ear' by its current owners. Mary Gilmore left Killik Aike abruptly too... [Her] letters reflect a courageous, resourceful and strong-willed woman... 'Yea! I have lived' was how she began one poem, and reading Anne Whitehead's spry account of her life, it is hard not to agree.' - Times Literary Supplement 'I quickly fell under the spell of Whitehead's intelligent writing... a biography that compassionately embraces the artistic, emotional and political aspect of Mary Gilmore's life' - Age 'This splendid and fascinating book is brilliantly balanced as part memoir, part well-researched recreation of the young Mary Gilmore as inamorata of Henry Lawson, as radical wife, Paraguayan and Patagonian settler, and as abidingly Australian soul.' - Thomas Keneally 'Bluestocking in Patagonia is a very beautiful book. In the first place, Whitehead writes with considerable flair, and with a fine eye for detail. The text is intelligently crafted, switching between Australia and South America, past and present, self and other... Yet Bluestocking in Patagonia is important for other reasons. This book is as much about Whitehead's effort to retrace Gilmore's steps as about Gilmore herself and is, in this respect, a fine blend of history and travel writing: a combination we also find in Whitehead's earlier book on the Paraguaya
