Category: Biography & Autobiography
They had been engaged for a period, and what began as a brief romance developed into a lifetime's friendship and collaboration in poetry. Throughout the reminiscence runs H. D's conviction that her life and Pound's had been irrevocably entwined since those early days when they had walked together in the Pennsylvania woods and he wrote for her verse after William Morris, Rossetti, Swinburne, and Chaucer. Twenty-five of these poems, handbound in vellum by Pound and called "Hilda's Book," are published here for the first time as an epilogue to this important and moving document.
The Rich Man and Lazarus
Author: Robb Moser
Publisher: Moser & Co.
Hell has become a controversial subject in recent years, even among Christians. However, the controversy is entirely man made. The rejection of the reality of hell stems from a human inability to reconcile the love of God with eternal punishment or from an outright rejection of God’s Word. Even some professing Christians have come to unbiblical conclusions. Some have tried to redefine hell, create an intermediate state not found in Scripture, or deny hell altogether. In doing so, they are ignoring Jesus’ warning in Revelation, If anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.” Hell is mentioned 167 times in the Bible, sometimes called Gehenna, Hades, the pit, the Abyss, or everlasting punishment. Jesus spoke of heaven and hell as real places. The story Jesus told about the rich man and Lazarus was an actual event that demonstrated the reality of the two eternal destinations. Heaven is the dwelling place of God where Jesus has gone to prepare a place for those who love Him. Hell was created for the devil and his angels. But because every human being is a sinner, every person past the age of accountability has already been condemned to hell. We all deserve hell as the just punishment for our rebellion against God. Jesus was clear that no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again. He was also clear that hell is an eternal punishment for those who do not obey Him. Thessalonians says that in the end God will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might. John the Baptist said about Jesus, His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire. John explains in the simplest terms who will go to heaven and who will go to hell. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. Those who go to hell are specifically those who do not believe in Jesus’ name. To believe goes beyond a mental recognition of the truth. To believe in Christ for salvation requires a transfer of allegiance. We stop worshiping ourselves, we forsake our sin, and we begin to worship God with our heart, soul, mind, and strength. God desires that every person spend eternity with Him but He honors our free will. Anyone who so desires can go to heaven. Jesus already paid the price for our salvation, but we must accept that gift and transfer ownership of our lives to Him. Heaven is perfect, and God cannot take anyone there who insists on holding on to his or her sin. We must allow Him to cleanse us of our sin and make us righteous in His sight. John shows us the problem and the solution: He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. We can choose to trust in Jesus’ payment for our sin, or we can choose to pay for our sins ourselves—but we must remember that the payment for our sin is eternity in hell. C.S. Lewis said it this way: There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, Thy will be done and those to whom God says in the end, Thy will be done.
Stories that Break the Cycle of Torment
Author: Helen Carmichael Porter
Publisher: Wood Lake Publishing Inc.
Category: Social Science
Helen Carmichael Porter has been touring her stories about victims and bullies for over seven years. The stories in The Bully and Me are first person accounts by both victims and bullies. The victims try to change the situation and usually, but not always, succeed. The stories are descriptive narratives of what happens to real people. They are based on Porter's observations, countless interviews, personal experience, and imagination. The book explores the idea that victims and bullies are two sides of the same coin and that the healing of both lies in dealing with this paradox. There is not a lot of real violence in these stories; there is some, and much of it is implied in threats, taunts, gossip, e-mails, gestures, and language. Most of the bullying is teasing and it is always designed to torment and ridicule. The Bully and Me also refers to biblical and folk tales in the comments showing how bullying is not a new problem. This is not a self-help book; it is about listening to and thinking about the stories of bullying that happen everyday in our homes, our schools, and our communities.

TORMENT is a mystery novel set in the small fictional town of Marcville, Ontario, a model bedroom town. Westland High is its model school. But both are susceptible to cracks in the harmony of the social milieu, and silent tears in the misery of individual lives. When Kyra Whitehead, a vivacious cheerleader, is raped at a celebratory team party, no one anticipates what follows this single, horrific act. Amongst hundreds of staff and students, finding witnesses is not a problem, but defining motives and eliminating inconsequential evidence becomes a nightmare for Detective Michael Stewart and his crew of fellow police officers. Identifying suspects can only be achieved by realizing who the intended victims were, and then, who would want to harm them. The words and actions of a string of proposed suspects are interpreted in unexpected and startling ways. The story leads us through the trauma of lives brutalized by bullying, and into worlds where drug and gambling addictions redefine the bully and the victim.
