"Intelligenter Plot. Herausragende Charaktere. Alles was man für einen großartigen Thriller braucht." #1 New York Times Bestsellerautorin Lisa Gardner Die angesehene Wissenschaftlerin Eleanor Costello ist tot. Erhängt in ihrem Schlafzimmer. Frankie Sheehan, Detective im Dubliner Police Department und schwer gezeichnet von ihrem letzten Fall, glaubt nicht an Selbstmord. Jemand war bei Eleanor, als sie starb. Jemand, der sadistische Lust an brutalen Spielchen hat. Schon bald wird eine zweite Leiche gefunden: eine junge Frau - zu Tode gefoltert. Ein Wettlauf mit der Zeit beginnt, und für Frankie geht es erneut um Leben und Tod. Packend. Überraschend. Nervenaufreibend. "Eine extrem interessante Newcomerin mit einem furiosen Debut. (...) ́Good job ́, Mrs. Kiernan! Freue mich auf Nr. 2." Krimi-Couch "Dublin bildet einen fantastischen Hintergrund für das spannungsgeladene Krimi-Debüt »Zu nah« der irischen Autorin Olivia Kiernan. Sie hat mit Detective Frankie Sheehan eine starke, intelligente Heldin mit ungewöhnlichen Ermittlungsmethoden geschaffen." Washington Post "Kiernans Beschreibungen von Frankies emotionaler und körperlicher Heilung nach einer Attacke sind meisterhaft in die Handlung eingewoben. Obwohl der Serienkiller ein oft bemühter Bösewicht ist, findet Kiernan doch einen neuen Zugang zu diesem Genre, und der Leser sieht Dublins Straßen und Viertel mit neuen Augen. »Zu nah« zeichnet sich durch seine realistischen Charaktere aus, angefangen von der Protagonistin Frankie, über ihre Kollegen im Police Department bis hin zu dem überraschenden Täter." Washington Post "Faszinierend. Olivia Kiernan entfaltet ein komplexes Geflecht aus Mord, Verrat und Geheimnissen, während die Bedrohung für ihre knallharte Ermittlerin immer weiter steigt, bis sich alles in einem furiosen Finale entlädt." #1 New York Times Bestsellerautorin Lisa Gardner "Zu nah präsentiert eine aufregende neue Stimme in der Spannungsliteratur. Pointiert und mutig, intelligent und düster. Frankie Sheehan ist eine brillant gezeichnete Polizistin. Olivia Kiernan schickt sie auf eine Spurensuche voller Irrungen und Wirrungen, die den Leser bis zuletzt rätseln lassen." New York Times Bestsellerautorin Linda Fairstein "Zu nah ist ein furchtloses und rasantes Debüt, das den Leser in die Welt der Dubliner Polizistin Frankie Sheehan katapultiert. Sheehan ist die perfekte Mischung aus Zerbrechlichkeit, wilder Entschlossenheit und Furchtlosigkeit. Der schwarze Humor und die fesselnde Stadtatmosphäre machen es zu einem Buch, das Liebhaber irischer Krimis nicht verpassen dürfen. Olivia Kiernan ist eine Autorin, die ihren Lesern den Atem stocken lässt." Jess Kidd, Autorin von Freund der Toten

I feel that God has brought me through the trails and walked with me through many stroms to see who I was before I could see that which is ahead. Love From Above Hear My Cry and now Redeem, In the Name of Love has centered my heart even more towards God and His Son, Jesus Christ. As much as we try to find love, as we try to live a perfect life, and as we try to become that prefect christian we find that we need God even more. God has blessed me with so much but I still fall short of His glory, my heart burns with the desire to love Him that loved me first. God told me to keep my eyes on him. I pray that God continues to use me and these poems to touch your heart as they have touched mine.

“If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14:7) Jesus is the great stumbling block of faith. It is in him that Christianity finds its uniqueness among the religions of the world. He is the Incarnate Son of God, the unique revelation of the Father. Yet so often, we begin the process of theological formulation not with the person of Jesus, but rather, with philosophical arguments about God’s existence and logical constructions to determine God’s nature. How would our understanding be affected if we instead took Jesus as our starting point for doing theology? In Let’s Start with Jesus, respected biblical scholar Dennis Kinlaw explores this question, revealing answers that are profound. In seeking to describe the nature of the relationship God desires with us, he explores three metaphors—royal/legal, familial, and nuptial—which serve as motifs for his reflection. Taking familiar theological categories, Kinlaw views them through the primary lens of the person and work of Jesus, and finds that Jesus reveals rich pictures of the nature of God, the nature of personhood, the problem of sin, the way of salvation, and finally, the means of sanctification via perfect love. The distilled wisdom of one of this generation’s greatest thinkers. Dr. Kinlaw leads you deep into the inner sanctuary of the Holy Trinity and shows you three distinct persons relating to each other in pure reciprocal love. —Robert E. Coleman, Distinguished Professor of Evangelism and Discipleship, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Every time I read something written by Dennis Kinlaw my mind is stimulated and my heart strangely warmed. Let’s Start with Jesus is another important book from a truly gifted man. —Lyle W. Dorsett, Billy Graham Professor of Evangelism, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University Kinlaw’s revolutionary approach to doing theology is much more than that—it’s a revolutionary approach to life. Kinlaw locates ultimate purpose in a place the church has almost totally neglected, and he does so graciously, with powerful, tightly reasoned biblical argumentation.
