Act Of God

by Jill Ciment, Act Of God Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Act Of God book, Jill Ciment’s books have been hailed as “stunning,” “powerful,” and “provocative.” Alice Sebold has called her works “beautifully written.” Now the author of Heroic Measures (“Smart and funny and completely surprising . . . I loved every page.” —Ann Patchett; “Brave, generous, nearly perfect.” —Los Angeles Times) has given us a contemporary noir novel that starts out a comedy of errors and turns darker at every hairpin turn. It’s the summer of 2015, Brooklyn. The city is sweltering from another record-breaking heat wave, this one accompanied by biblical rains. Edith, a recently retired legal librarian, and her identical twin sister, Kat, a feckless romantic who’s mistaken her own eccentricity for originality, discover something ominous in their hall closet: it seems to be phosphorescent, it’s a mushroom . . . and it’s sprouting from their wall. Upstairs, their landlady, Vida Cebu, a Shakespearian actress far more famous for her TV commercials for Ziberax (the first female sexual enhancement pill) than for her stage work, discovers that a petite Russian girl, a runaway au pair, has been secretly living in her guest room closet. When the police arrest the intruder, they find a second mushroom, also glowing, under the intruder’s bedding. Soon the HAZMAT squad arrives, and the four women are forced to evacuate the contaminated row house with only the clothes on their backs. As the mold infestation spreads from row house to high-rise, and frightened, bewildered New Yorkers wait out this plague (is it an act of God?) on their city and property, the four women become caught up in a centrifugal nightmare. Part horror story, part screwball comedy, Jill Ciment’s brilliant suspense novel looks at what happens when our lives—so seemingly set and ordered yet so precariously balanced—break down in the wake of calamity. It is, as well, a novel about love (familial and profound) and how it can appear from the most unlikely circumstances. From the Hardcover edition.

Act Of God Active God

by Gary L. Harbaugh, Act Of God Active God Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Act Of God Active God book, This book raises in a straightforward fashion the faith-related questions that the victims/survivors of natural disasters have as a result of this experience. Is the disaster an "act of God?" Did God cause the disaster? If God is all powerful, why did God allow it to happen? The author then goes on to argue that God is active in our questions, confusions, and doubts, as well as in those who help - either individually or as communities of faith. He discusses the dynamics of the caregiver/care receiver relationship from the perspective of the care receiver to provide insights into how natural disaster victims can face an uncertain future with hope and faith. A final chapter for caregivers provides help for the emotional and spiritual health of those who assist others in times of disaster. Appendices provide practical, close-to-the-ground tools.

by Jeremiah Healy, Act Of God Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Act Of God book, Cuddy looks for the link between a disappearance and a robbery gone wrongJohn Francis Cuddy almost never gets walk-in clients, but today he has two. Although William Proft and Pearl Rivkind enter his office together, they could not have less in common. Proft is a pharmacist with greedy eyes, who relates too calmly the facts of his sister’s disappearance. Mrs. Rivkind is a recent widow whose husband was killed during an attempted robbery. Her fear that her husband may have been cheating endears her to Cuddy. The odd couple think there may be a connection between the missing sister and late husband, and ask Cuddy to find it. Cuddy does not like joint cases, but the hard sorrow in Mrs. Rivkind’s eyes makes him say yes. He quickly finds that, although Mrs. Rivkind’s grief for her husband was genuine, Proft has no interest in seeing his sister return. As Cuddy searches for answers to these strange intertwined cases, he can only pray that no more corpses appear before he finds the truth.

Glorious Redemptive Act Of The Sanctuary Of God

by Daniel LeFebo, Glorious Redemptive Act Of The Sanctuary Of God Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Glorious Redemptive Act Of The Sanctuary Of God book, After the fall of Adam and Eve, God instituted a plan of action to restore His creation to a loving relationship with Him. But before God sent His Son to serve as the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world, He sought to develop a covenant relationship with His people to prepare them for the Messiah and their role in spreading the Word of God to a fallen world. God sought to be a sanctuary--a place of refuge or safety--for His people. He sought to dwell among them and teach them His ways. He sought to point them to the coming Messiah and the work of atonement that Jesus would perform. After Christ's incarnation, life and ministry, death on the cross, and ascension, God once again sought to be a sanctuary for His fledgling church by dwelling in them through the Holy Spirit. Glorious Redemptive Act of the Sanctuary of God examines the wilderness sanctuary service, the earthly/human sanctuary, and the heavenly sanctuary to gain a better understanding of God's plan for His people in the closing days of earth's history. The time is short, and we must be ready!

Acts Of God

by Ted Steinberg, Acts Of God Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Acts Of God book, As the waters of the Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain began to pour into New Orleans, people began asking the big question--could any of this have been avoided? How much of the damage from Hurricane Katrina was bad luck, and how much was poor city planning? Steinberg's Acts of God is a provocative history of natural disasters in the United States. This revised edition features a new chapter analyzing the failed response to Hurricane Katrina, a disaster Steinberg warned could happen when the book first was published. Focusing on America's worst natural disasters, Steinberg argues that it is wrong to see these tragedies as random outbursts of nature's violence or expressions of divine judgment. He reveals how the decisions of business leaders and government officials have paved the way for the greater losses of life and property, especially among those least able to withstand such blows--America's poor, elderly, and minorities. Seeing nature or God as the primary culprit, Steinberg explains, has helped to hide the fact that some Americans are simply better able to protect themselves from the violence of nature than others. In the face of revelations about how the federal government mishandled the Katrina calamity, this book is a must-read before further wind and water sweep away more lives. Acts of God is a call to action that needs desperately to be heard.
