Category: Family & Relationships
What can you do when someone you love is dying? Do you have an elderly parent who is dying, or perhaps a partner who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness? Where or who do you turn to? What can you do about their quality of life for whatever time you have left together? How do you want to manage those dreaded death discussions? Being prepared may ease some of your and your loved one's fears surrounding death. Doctors may be helpful with medical needs, what about the emotional and non-medical needs? Susan B. Mercer, a trained end of life Doula, offers comprehensive solutions and advice about death and dialogues, to ease the fear and angst associated with death and dying. Caring for the non-medical needs of the dying person and their family members can bring a sense of understanding and relief to the dying process of life. The creation of a Legacy Project, attending to transition room preparedness, using visualizations, gathering knowledge of what directives are needed, and reviewing choices to be made prior to death can bring peace, ease, and serenity to all family members. Living even while dying is a blessing you can help your loved one manage, with the tools, understanding, and kindness found in A Graceful Goodbye.

Coming out of the Grieving Place
Author: Pastor Stephen Singleton
Publisher: WestBow Press
When challenged to give pastoral counsel to a grieving friend, Pastor Steve Singleton was inspired to write this simple volume of lessons that challenges conventional attitudes about handling grief. The author acknowledges the reality of pain and then challenges the Christian believer to initiate the process to come out of the place of grief and sorrow. He affirms that we “feel what we feel” and then inspires everyone to “get moving” from the grieving place. Using a combination of pastoral experiences and the Scriptures, Pastor Singleton provides a new outlook on the life of the grief-stricken.

A New Outlook is a study of revelation that employs a fictional setting to explore Christian religion and its background. The fictional setting serves the purpose of providing a narrative structure to what is otherwise a journey from infinite past, through cosmology, to the current world situation as regard to revelation, in history and in philosophico-theological conceptual development. This book is not an exercise of exegesis, but source material is scriptural and is never treated lightly. Only the fictional setting has a patina of entertainment and some grounding in the world of spoons and loons. To wit, there are no footnotesscholarship is not obtrusive, but it does build the book.

This invaluable volume, written by group of internationally established scientists, presents an overview of the most recent findings on the biology of neutrophils. These cells have become a focus of attention in recent years because of their fascinating biochemistry and molecular biology and their ability to affect the functions of other cells. The book describes, in detail, the molecular events leading to neutrophil activation, migration, microbial killing, production of oxidative radicals and cytokines, and eventually to the death of these cells. It presents new information that has never been discussed in monographs before. It also gives a unique overview of the neutrophil's role in viral diseases, including Aids. Finally, the book describes how to improve the function of neutrophils and use these cells in the treatment of diseases.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: ...from printing the tragically Calvinistic verse which closes Addison's famous hymn, beginning "The Lord my pasture shall prepare," with a conclusion so formidable as death's " gloomy horrors " and "' dreadful shade." In 1855 he edited, with Dr. Ezra Abbot, his father's translations of the Gospels with notes (2 vols.), and his " Evidences of the Genuineness of the Gospels " (3 vols.). Charles Norton made further visits to Europe in I855-7, and again remained there from I868 until 1873; during which time his rapidly expanding literary acquaintanceships quite. weaned his mind from the early atmosphere of theology. Although one of the writers in the very first number of the Atlantic Monthly, he had no direct part in its planning. He wrote to me (January 9, 1899), "I am sorry that I can tell you nothing about the /tr///mn1'zz of the Atlantic. I was in Europe in l856--7, whence I brought home some MSS. for the new magazine." It appears from his later statement in the Anniversary.lumber that he had put all these manuscripts by English authors in a trunk together. but that this trunk and all the manuscripts were lost. except one accidentally left unpacked, which was a prose paper by James Hannay on Douglas Jerrold, " who is hardly." as Norton justly says. " to be reckoned among the immortals." Hannay is yet more thoroughly forgotten. But this inadequate service in respect to foreign material was soon more than balanced. as one sees on tracing the list of papers catalogued in the Atlantic Index under Norton's name. To appreciate the great variety and thorough preliminary preparation of Norton's mind, a student must take one of the early...
An Ancient View for a New Outlook
Author: Friedrich Weinreb
Publisher: Schwabe AG
The great Kabbalist Friedrich Weinreb (1910 - 1988) offers the key to experiencing the Bible as our hidden life - manifesting itself in our daily life. The book deals with issues of life, of the world, of the Bible, in a way unknown up to the present. It shows that the Bible is a creation even more impressive than the creation of the universe and life. It is a creation in the Word, der Word of God. The wonder of this Word has unsuspected depths, shedding light on the structure of life and the universe. The presentation of the system will undoubtedly bring up one surprise after the other in the reader. It will touch him or her more deeply than the discovery of the structure of the universe and the laws of nature. - This book is one of the richest commentary of the Torah of the 20th century.
