Smell the Steel Avoid the Trap Book Review:

Did you know that people are often oppressed with illness, poverty, and anxiety because they fail to settle offenses according to biblical standard? Demonic forces cleverly set traps of offense, and many people who get snared don't even realize it. This book answers difficult questions like these: .Why should I feel guilty if I am not at fault? .Is it better to ignore ungodly behavior, or confront it? .What should I do when others refuse biblical instruction? .Should I separate myself from habitual offenders and religious pretenders? .Okay! I admit to my part. Now what? This book will help you to distinguish the many ways people are lured into the trap of offense. It will empower you to remain free from this trap and to maintain a noticeable relationship with God and His many blessings. About the Author - Ray Johnthon Hundley is passionate to instruct others on biblical perspectives and to deepen their intimacy with Jesus Christ. Ray has served in the ministry offices of pastor, teacher, and evangelist. Ray continues to serve the body of Christ today as an evangelist and revivalist.

Oral and Written Transmission in Chant Book Review:

This volume deals with the materials of chant from the point of view of transmission. The early history of chant is a history of orality, of transmission by mouth to ear, and scholars of medieval music have taken up the ideas and techniques of scholars of folklore, of oral transmission, of ethnomusicology; for the chant is, in fact, an ancient music transmitted for a time in oral culture. Ironically, the use of written documents is also vital for the study of chant, involving analysis of oral issues in the writing of music.

Boundless Worlds Book Review:

Where lived experience of surroundings is shifting, visceral, and immersive, interpretation of social spaces tends to be static and remote. "Space" and "place" are also often analyzed without grappling much (if at all) with the social, political, and historical roots of spatial practice. This volume embarks upon the novel strategy of focusing on movement as a way of understanding social spaces, which offers a means to get beyond biases inherent in the social science of space. Ethnographic studies of social life in settings as varied as nomadic Mongolia and island Melanesia, as distinct as contemporary Tokyo and war-torn Palestine, challenge Western assumptions about the universality of "space" and allow concrete understanding of how life plays out over different socio-cultural topographies. In a world that is becoming increasingly "bounded" in many ways - despite enormous changes wrought by technological, ideological, and other social developments - Boundless Worlds urges a scholarly turn, away from the purely global, toward the human dimension of social lives lived in conditions of conflict, upheaval, remapping, and improvisation through movement.

Hungry and hopeless, Gabe is rescued by the owner of a sheep ranch south of Ransom. Incredibly, Akira Macauley gives him a place to live and work to do. More than that, she gives him hope. But just as Gabe comes to believe that happiness may be within his grasp, his life begins to unravel. Gabe must either sink again into an abyss of hopelessness or cling to a hope, faith, and love stronger than any he has ever known.
