In this luminous prequel to her beloved Cobbled Court Quilts series, New York Times bestselling author Marie Bostwick takes readers into the heart of a small Texas town and the soul of a woman who discovers her destiny there. . . Welcome to Too Much--where the women are strong-willed and the men are handsome yet shiftless. Ever since Mary Dell Templeton and her twin sister Lydia Dale were children, their Aunt Velvet has warned them away from local boys. But it's well known that the females in Mary Dell's family have two traits in common--superior sewing skills and a fatal weakness for men. While Lydia Dale grows up petite and pretty, Mary Dell just keeps growing. Tall, smart, and sassy, she is determined to one day turn her love of sewing into a business. Meanwhile, she'll settle for raising babies with her new husband, Donny. But that dream proves elusive too, until finally, Mary Dell gets the son she always wanted--a child as different as he is wonderful. And as Mary Dell is forced to reconsider what truly matters in her family and her marriage, she begins to piece together a life that, like the colorful quilts she creates, will prove vibrant, rich, and absolutely unforgettable. . .

Between heaven and Texas, there's a sky that goes on forever. On cloudless mornings after a norther has blown through, the sky is such a perfect cobalt blue that you forget the “between” and know that heaven is Texas, or Texas is heaven—it doesn't really matter which. But most days there are clouds between Texas and heaven—puffy white clouds that set us dreaming on lazy summer days or roiling storm clouds that unleash lightning, tornadoes, and hail. The sky between heaven and Texas is a stage for drama more often than not, just like the lives we live below it. Perhaps that's why we're always looking up. In this beautiful book, noted photographer Wyman Meinzer revisits the place that inspires his most creative work—the Texas sky. His photographs capture the vast dramas that occur between heaven and Texas—rainstorms that blot out mountain ranges, lightning strikes that dazzle a night-black prairie, trains of clouds that rumble for miles over wheat fields, sunsets that lave the whole wide sky in crimson, gold, and pink. Meinzer's striking images reveal that in the sky above, no less than on the land below, endless variety is commonplace in Texas. Joining Meinzer in this celebration of the Texas sky are two fine writers, Sarah Bird and Naomi Shihab Nye. In her wonderfully personal introduction, Sarah Bird describes growing up as a dedicated cloud-watcher who, after several years among the cotton candy clouds and cool fogs of Japan, was shocked and exhilarated by the limitless hot skies of Texas. Naomi Nye has chosen poems by twenty-six Texas poets, including herself, which explore a spectrum of emotion about the sky above Texas and the weather in our lives beneath it. Together, photographs, memoir, and poems create a lasting connection with the power and presence of what Meinzer calls “that vast frontier and ocean above”—the sky between heaven and Texas.

Während des amerikanischen Bürgerkriegs stirbt Präsident Lincolns geliebter Sohn Willie mit elf Jahren. Laut Zeitungsberichten suchte der trauernde Vater allein das Grabmal auf, um seinen Sohn noch einmal in den Armen zu halten. Bei George Saunders wird daraus eine allumfassende Geschichte über Liebe und Verlust, wie sie origineller, faszinierender und grandioser nicht sein könnte. Im Laufe dieser Nacht, in der Abraham Lincoln von seinem Sohn Abschied nimmt, werden die Gespenster wach, die Geister der Toten auf dem Friedhof, aber auch die der Geschichte und der Literatur, reale wie erfundene, und mischen sich ein. Denn Willie Lincoln befindet sich im Zwischenreich zwischen Diesseits und Jenseits, in tibetischer Tradition Bardo genannt, und auf dem Friedhof in Georgetown entbrennt ein furioser Streit um die Seele des Jungen, ein vielstimmiger Chor, der in die eine große Frage mündet: Warum lieben wir überhaupt, wenn wir doch wissen, dass alles zu Ende gehen muss?

As soon as two doctors asked Melanie Boulis if she would like to sit down, she knew something was wrong. Still, she remained standing. But when the doctors showed Melanie the slides from her twelve-year-old daughter Danielle’s MRI, she immediately lowered herself into a chair, numb from shock and disbelief. In an instant, Melanie’s world changed forever. Danielle had brain cancer. After Danielle was diagnosed with a large tumor on her brain stem, Melanie reveals how she and her husband, Kevin, began a journey through countless tests, surgeries, and treatments—and where nothing mattered but getting their little girl better. As Danielle bravely faced the darkness of brain cancer, Melanie and Kevin felt helpless, unable to do anything else but pray, read Scriptures, sing, and offer words of comfort. As the news gradually transformed from bad to worse, Melanie shares how she and Kevin gained strength through their faith and learned to trust God’s plan, even after He chose heaven for Danielle. Between Heaven and Healing shares the inspirational story of a young girl’s journey through terminal cancer and her parents’ eventual realization that faith is not knowing why, but still believing in His goodness and eternal life where all will be made right, where cancer is nonexistent, and where there will be no more tears.

There is no greater controversial person in the world than Jesus the Christ. For over two thousand years, speculation has been lurking in the background about religious control of belief by the church and church dogma in general. Where many people stop in Sunday school, author Dean Eyerly moves beyond in his historical research about this man named Jesus and his historical search for his true beliefs and teaching. Along the way, historical writings were discovered that provided more detail surrounding his life, death, and resurrection. Having been inspired to study after being presented with conflicting historical information, Eyerly began to study outside of traditional data surrounding Jesus in 2003 in order to find a firmer grasp on what history says about Jesus. To no surprise, The answers he found were not always in line with what the Bible says, and Eyerly argues that what we are commonly taught in church isn't the full story. There are several documents and writings discovered that go against modern constructs and tradition as we Christians know of the faith today. Dean has studied through the many documents that go against modern constructs and tradition and shows readers what they say about Jesus, his followers, and possibly why these documents were rejected and pushed into the dark. See how these stark differences in belief are considered so dangerous by the church and not by Jesus. Between Heaven and Hell is a compilation of research shaped into a timeline that begins before the birth of Christ and moves into the Common Era. Dean draws from many non-canonical references and Gnostic literature in presenting a broader perspective on the many differing thoughts and views concerning the person of Jesus. Is there good evidence that Jesus was who we think he was? Was he really born of a virgin? Who really wrote the Bible? These questions must start from somewhere. Discover what you might in this thought provoking presentation of 'un-safe' information that lies Between Heaven and Hell. Dean Eyerly conducts biblical research as a hobby and enjoys sharing with others what he finds. Eyerly firmly believes, As do all of mankind, that Jesus is extra-ordinary, And The Being that all earthly people should emulate. Eyerly currently resides in Holland, Ohio.

Between Heaven and Earth grew out of one of Thielicke's visits to the United States during which he travelled across the country preaching and lecturing. The conversations recorded here are the fruit of his more informal discussions with small groups of ministers, students and laypeople. The questions they asked are direct and wide-ranging, concerned not only with the fundamental problems of faith but with its bearing on issues of social and political morality. Thielicke's answers, though equally direct, are neither simplistic nor dogmatic. His approach is refreshingly open and his conclusions emerge from a reasoned consideration of the evidence and alternative possibilities. Above all, Thielicke's answers reveal the warmth and deep concern for mankind's spiritual welfare that is at the root of his teaching and writing.

Die Erfahrung des Leidens schließt für viele den Glauben an einen allmächtigen, allwissenden und allgütigen Gott aus. Die Studie befragt im Horizont der aktuellen philosophischen Diskussion das Hiobbuch und die babylonische Dichtung «Ludlul bel nemeqi» nach Antworten auf die Leidensfrage. Dabei werden die Antworten des Hiobbuches auch im gesamtbiblischen Horizont reflektiert.
