Finding Freedom 3 Hallowed Ground by Leslie Laye
Marla's mother is dead. Marla is heartbroken and devastated and only has her budding relationship with Danielle to depend on. That is, until Marla's sister, Katrina, returns after years of being gone. Katrina is stern and severe and looks on none too happy to meet Danielle, as if she figured out what she is. Danielle's sneaking around grants her a brief respite from the terrors going on in her life, allowing her to finally enjoy Marla the way she wants to. But sneaking around can only give you so much time, and eventually her past catches up to her.
Jeremy Kohler takes the reader on a journey through the pastoral search process that explores the meaning of the pastoral call. His story presents a candid picture of what really goes into calling a new pastor. The Call shows us the complexities of modern church life, the interplay of spiritual dynamics and spiritualizing tendencies, and the power of personalities to circumvent the will of God. This true-to-life novel offers a behind-the-scenes perspective on pastoral ministry that will inform and challenge the seminarian, lay leader, and working pastor. Pastoral Search Committees will find this story especially important. The Call focuses on the untold story and hidden dynamics of an all too human institution, which God still uses to fulfill His redemptive purposes. Here is an insider's view of the politics, disappointments, and opportunities of ministering in today's American church.
The Hero S Farewell by Jeffrey Sonnenfeld
How a business replaces its chief executive is a vital issue for a firm's future. Illustrated with case histories taken from corporate boardrooms and fresh conceptual perspectives, this book describes the factors that affect executive succession.
The Quality Of Freedom by Matthew H. Kramer
At least since the publication of Isaiah Berlin's famous essay "Two Concepts of Liberty" nearly half a century ago, political philosophers have argued vigorously over the relative merits of "positive" and "negative" accounts of freedom. Matthew Kramer writes squarely within the negative-liberty tradition, but he incorporates a number of ideas that are quite often associated with theories of positive liberty. Much of The Quality of Freedom is devoted to elaborating the necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of particular freedoms and unfreedoms; however, the book's cardinal objective is to establish the measurability of each person's overall freedom and of each society's aggregate freedom. On the one hand, Kramer contends that the existence of any particular instance of liberty or unfreedom is a matter of fact that can be confirmed or disconfirmed without any reliance on evaluative or normative considerations. On the other hand, he argues that the extent of each person's overall freedom or unfreedom cannot be ascertained entirely in the absence of evaluative assumptions. By combining those two positions and developing them in detail, Kramer pits himself against all positive accounts of liberty and most negative accounts. In the course of so doing, he aims to demonstrate the rigorous measurability of overall liberty--something that many writers on freedom have casually dismissed as impossible. Although Kramer concentrates principally on constructing a systematic analysis of sociopolitical freedom, he engages critically with the work of many of the leading contemporary writers on the topic.
Hamiltonian Systems With Three Or More Degrees Of Freedom by Carles Simó
A survey of current knowledge about Hamiltonian systems with three or more degrees of freedom and related topics. The Hamiltonian systems appearing in most of the applications are non-integrable. Hence methods to prove non-integrability results are presented and the different meaning attributed to non-integrability are discussed. For systems near an integrable one, it can be shown that, under suitable conditions, some parts of the integrable structure, most of the invariant tori, survive. Many of the papers discuss near-integrable systems. From a topological point of view, some singularities must appear in different problems, either caustics, geodesics, moving wavefronts, etc. This is also related to singularities in the projections of invariant objects, and can be used as a signature of these objects. Hyperbolic dynamics appear as a source on unpredictable behaviour and several mechanisms of hyperbolicity are presented. The destruction of tori leads to Aubrey-Mather objects, and this is touched on for a related class of systems. Examples without periodic orbits are constructed, against a classical conjecture. Other topics concern higher dimensional systems, either finite (networks and localised vibrations on them) or infinite, like the quasiperiodic Schrödinger operator or nonlinear hyperbolic PDE displaying quasiperiodic solutions. Most of the applications presented concern celestial mechanics problems, like the asteroid problem, the design of spacecraft orbits, and methods to compute periodic solutions.
Reading Freedom 2000 by Hunter A. Calder
Designed primarily to be used in conjunction with the Reading Freedom 2000 program, this handbook attempts to provide a comprehensive collection of the tests and checklists a teacher needs to accurately diagnose areas of weakness in students' reading. It also provides teachers with the 'tools' to analyse results so that they can provide the appropriate program of instruction to meet the individual student's learning needs. Contains notes and case studies. The author received the International Literacy Year Medal of Merit for the Reading Freedom series of books.
Freedom After The Critique Of Foundations by A. Kioupkiolis
An exploration of the contemporary re-conception of freedom after the critique of objective truths and ideas of an unchanging human nature, in which modern self-determination was grounded. This book focuses on the radical theorist Cornelius Castoriadis and the new paradigm of 'agonistic autonomy' is contrasted with Marxian and liberal approaches.
Thucydides And The Pursuit Of Freedom by Mary P. Nichols
In Thucydides and the Pursuit of Freedom, Mary P. Nichols argues for the centrality of the idea of freedom in Thucydides’ thought. Through her close reading of his History of the Peloponnesian War, she explores the manifestations of this theme. Cities and individuals in Thucydides’ history take freedom as their goal, whether they claim to possess it and want to maintain it or whether they desire to attain it for themselves or others. Freedom is the goal of both antagonists in the Peloponnesian War, Sparta and Athens, although in different ways. One of the fullest expressions of freedom can be seen in the rhetoric of Thucydides’ Pericles, especially in his famous funeral oration. More than simply documenting the struggle for freedom, however, Thucydides himself is taking freedom as his cause. On the one hand, he demonstrates that freedom makes possible human excellence, including courage, self-restraint, deliberation, and judgment, which support freedom in turn. On the other hand, the pursuit of freedom, in one’s own regime and in the world at large, clashes with interests and material necessity, and indeed the very passions required for its support. Thucydides’ work, which he himself considered a possession for all time, therefore speaks very much to our time, encouraging the defense of freedom while warning of the limits and dangers in doing so. The powerful must defend freedom, Thucydides teaches, but beware that the cost not become freedom itself.
