A Bee In The Church House (The Sting of sin)is a testimony of an overcoming victor; exposing instances of usual drama or traumatic experiences that can be a root of bitterness as a hindering wound, if not healed. The power of the Holy Spirit produces a walk in the newness of Christ by faith, eradicating a form of godliness. When tested or tried we persevere in prayer, diligently seeking God through transformation by renewing the mind; righteously equipped to do that written in our manual for living now, and the world to come. Gods word is the Truth, revealing an evil spirit when holding the truth in unrighteousness. A modern day overview of the New Testament Book of Romans with an awareness of a lingering spirit among us that is suspect; existing as a spirit of anger, selfishness, deceit, bitterness, strife, buzzing, hissing, and at times appearing, as a rattling pit demon. will enlighten, liberate and empower the believer experiencing the searing pain of a church hurt. Guidance is to be received through this labyrinth of emotional and spiritual devastation as a powerful and insightful reflection of Gods Word. -- Pastor Stephanie Stratford, Ekklesia Family Life and Worship Center, Brentwood, MD helped to expose a systematic problem within the walls of our sanctuaries and has provided for each reader a Godly exit strategy that one must work at to be the man or woman of God that He is calling for in these last and evil days. -- Eric D. Barksdale, Senior Pastor/Teacher, Washington, DC bares her soul in a very moving testimony that will stir your heart and provide insights for spiritual growth and development. -- Reverend Welton Fields, Jr., PhD Herein is revealed to the reader that there is a turf battle (Strong Holds) in the church, i.e.,: This is my song; this is my seat; this is my.... When these turfs are threatened, the Bee will look to and use its sting, seemingly in many cases, to the detriment of the Believer. -- L.B. West, D.R.S.

The Oxford Book of American Essays

This essay appeared originally in the Atlantic Monthly for May, 1883. During the thirty years which have elapsed since it was written the manifestations of the colonial spirit then apparent in the United States have not only altered in character but, I am glad to say, have weakened, diminished, and become less noticeable. Since 1883, also, there has been much achieved by Americans in Art and Literature, in painting, in sculpture, in music, and particularly in architecture. Success in all these fields has, with few exceptions, been won by men working in the spirit which is not colonial, but which it was the purpose of this essay to inculcate as the true one to which alone we could look for fine and enduring achievement. I have called attention to the date at which the essay was written in order that those who read it may remember that it applies in certain points to the conditions of thirty years ago and not to those of the present day.

For more than fifty years, students and teachers have made the two-volume resource Sources of Indian Traditions their top pick for an accessible yet thorough introduction to Indian and South Asian civilizations. Volume 2 contains an essential selection of primary readings on the social, intellectual, and religious history of India from the decline of Mughal rule in the eighteenth century to today. It details the advent of the East India Company, British colonization, the struggle for liberation, the partition of 1947, and the creation of Pakistan, Bangladesh, and contemporary India. This third edition now begins earlier than the first and second, featuring a new chapter on eighteenth-century intellectual and religious trends that set the stage for India's modern development. The editors have added material on Gandhi and his reception both nationally and abroad and include different perspectives on and approaches to Partition and its aftermath. They expand their portrait of post-1947 India and Pakistan and add perspectives on Bangladesh. The collection continues to be divided thematically, with a section devoted to the drafting of the Indian constitution, the rise of nationalism, the influence of Western thought, the conflict in Kashmir, nuclear proliferation, minority religions, secularism, and the role of the Indian political left. A phenomenal text, Sources of Indian Traditions is more indispensable than ever for courses in philosophy, religion, literature, and intellectual and cultural history.

In Silico Bees

Bees are critically important for ecosystem function and biodiversity maintenance through their pollinating activity. Unfortunately, bee populations are faced with many threats, and evidence of a massive global pollination crisis is steadily growing. As a result, there is a need to understand and, ideally, predict how bees respond to pollution disturbance, to the changes over landscape gradients, and how their responses can vary in different habitats, which are influenced to different degrees by human activities. Modeling approaches are useful to simulate the behavior of whole population dynamics as well as to focus on important phenomena detrimental to bee-life history traits. They also allow simulation of how a disease or a pesticide can impact the survival and growth of a bee population. In Silico Bees provides a collection of computational methods to those primarily interested in the study of the ecology, ethology, and ecotoxicology of bees. The book presents different cases studies to enable readers to understand the significance and also the limitations of models in theoretical and applied bee research. The text covers modeling of honey bee society organization, infectious diseases in colonies, pesticide toxicity, chemical contamination of the hive, and more. Written by an international team of scientists, this book is of primary interest to those whose research or professional activity is directly concerned with the study of bees. It is also intended to provide graduate and post-graduate students with a clear and accessible text covering the main types of modeling approaches that can be used in terrestrial ecology and ecotoxicology.

Dr Hilary Fry's study of the bee-eaters covers all 24 species of this colourful Family, which ranges from southern Europe, Africa and the Middle East to India, China, south-east Asia and Australia. A major part of the book comprises the species accounts, with complementary colour plates of 42 species and sub-species and detailed maps depicting the geography of their evolution. In addition there are chapters on the bee-eaters' evolutionary development, their food and foraging behaviour, and relationships with apiculture; of particular interest are chapters on social and reproductive life, the role of 'helpers' at the nest, and the meaning of plumage and social distinctions between the species. The author's colour plates delight the eye and accurately portray plumage and 'jizz'. They are fully supplemented by more than 100 drawings by John Busby, capturing the essence of these birds with a rare deftness and vitality.
