10 Finding the Way Again

Author : Michael Lister
Genre :  Religion & Spirituality  Books 
Price :  $2.99
Release Date :  2016-04-14
Description :  It’s not too late to discover the lost gospel of Jesus and begin to live by it, to change our direction, to once again become people of the way. We could, with humility, embody compassion and justice. We could so completely trust God that we dare to share what we have with those in need, love those who hate us, bless those who curse us.&#xa0;<br /><br />What’s been lost can be found again. Do we dare? Can we hear the call clearly and be so moved we must respond? If we sense that something profound and precious has been lost, we can do something about it. It’s like a treasure that’s been lost, long since buried in a field. All we have to do is go and sell all we have and buy the field.<br /><br />My goal with this intentionally simple, slim volume (based on scholarship, but not bogged down by notes and references) is to attempt to remove that which has obscured, hidden, and even replaced Jesus and his radical revolution, extricating him from the stiflingly narrow religious context that all but silences him so his message can reverberate around us, resonate within us.<br /><br />There is hope.<br /><br />This can happen.&#xa0;<br /><br />If Jesus teaches us anything, it is that which was once dead can live again, that which was lost can be found.

Description :  Do you want a good divorce?<br /><br />It is possible!&#xa0;<br /><br />How to have a good divorce and a great life afterwards!<br /><br />A Short Guide to a Happy Divorce by acclaimed author Michael Lister<br /><br />Divorce is often difficult, even traumatic—more so than the death of a spouse sometimes, but it doesn’t have to be, or doesn’t have to stay that way. We don’t have to get stuck in the more negative aspects of uncoupling, that downward spiral of defeatism that lands us in despondency and despair.&#xa0;<br /><br />The happiness I refer to is neither shallow nor easy. It’s an earned, deep abiding joy that remains because of a certain approach, an honoring of an honorable process.&#xa0;<br /><br />What I’m offering here is not easy or automatic, but the result of noble intentions, strong resolve, and a heroic commitment to living in love by embracing what is, processing pain, and practicing true care—of ourselves, our partners, and especially our children.&#xa0;<br /><br />Divorce doesn’t have to be death. It doesn’t even have to be an end. If approached the right way it can be a transition—one filled with opportunity and hope. Nothing is permanent. All of life—and relationships—are in perpetual states of transition and transformation. Divorce can be experienced this same way.<br /><br />Not only does divorce not have to be an end—even of the relationship itself—but it also can most certainly be a beginning. A new beginning filled with incredible and heretofore unimagined possibilities and opportunities.&#xa0;<br /><br />Divorce doesn’t have to be bad.<br /><br />Divorce can be good.&#xa0;<br /><br />A marriage that ends in divorce isn’t necessarily a failure. A marriage that doesn’t end in divorce isn’t necessarily a success.<br /><br />A good divorce is possible.<br /><br />You can have one.<br /><br />Here’s how the author and his ex-wife did<br /><br />“Michael Lister is a writer of rare power and compassion.”&#xa0; Sean Chercover.<br /><br />IF YOU WANT A GOOD DIVORCE AND A HAPPY ENDING—A SHORT GUIDE TO A HAPPY DIVORCE IS FOR YOU!&#xa0;

21 Clerical Crime Stories

Author : Michael Lister & G.K.Chesterton
Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books  Mysteries & Thrillers  Police Procedural  Hard-Boiled 
Price :  $1.99
Release Date :  2015-11-29
Description :  Meet two of the most unique and popular Clerical detectives ever created -- Father Brown and John Jordan.<br /><br />˃˃˃ FLESH AND BLOOD John Jordan book 3 from multi-award-winning and bestselling author Michael Lister<br /><br />Michael Koryta says, "If you like crime writing with depth, suspense, and sterling prose, you should be reading Michael Lister."<br /><br />John Jordan is back—investigating eternal mysteries woven into the fabric of everyday life. Within the confines of seemingly ordinary cases, John explores the ineffable and inexplicable, the profoundly mysterious within the mundane.<br /><br />In this diverse collection of cases, John investigates the Shroud of Turin, a pregnant virgin, a daring prison break, a Hurricane Katrina orphan who might just be the Second Coming, a desperate woman who sleeps with one too many men, a bloody body on the rec yard, a mystery that turns on a single observation, and a murder in which John himself is the prime suspect—all this as he deals with depression and battles alcoholism.<br /><br />These stories are puzzles, whodunits, and enigmas, but they are much more. John Jordan doesn't just solve crime, he investigates the hidden heart of humanity and the mysterious world in which we live. Here are temporal answers and eternal questions, and at the center of it all, a conflicted man of faith and doubt, flawed, but faithful, who ministers mercy even as he thirsts for justice.<br /><br />If you love exciting, gritty, thoughtful mysteries, don't miss Michael Lister's FLESH AND BLOOD.<br /> <br />Listen to what bestselling author of religious and historical mysteries, Margaret Coel, says about Michael Lister and FLESH AND BLOOD.<br /><br />"Mystery and magic fill the stories of Flesh and Blood. They are in the richness of the language, the remarkable insights, the deft details, and the brilliant plotting. Michael Lister's stories do what the best of stories do: they startle and unsettle us and, in the process expand our view of reality. Most of all, they touch us, perhaps even with God's grace. John Jordan is a superb detective, an ex-cop and prison chaplain, he is part Sherlock Holmes and part Father Brown, combining Holmes' powers of observation and Brown's openness to the fundamental mysteries at the heart of life."<br /><br />Michael Lister presents G.K. Chesterton’s The Innocence of Father Brown is a new version of the 1911 classic collection of crime stories featuring the world’s very first ecclesiastical sleuth. Introduced by the author of the John Jordan mysteries, an acclaimed modern clerical detective series, the collection also includes a sample of Lister’s Innocent Blood. The Innocence of Father Brown is not only the first collection of stories featuring Father Brown, but is widely considered the best. Witness Chesterton’s influence on Lister, but also how the two authors differ in their approach to this genre. This collection includes such classic stories as "The Blue Cross," "The Secret Garden," "The Invisible Man," "The Hammer of God," and "The Eye of Apollo." Plus seven other ingenuous and inspiring tales. This special collection is perfect for both longtime fans of Chesterton and those new to his work, and is a great introduction to Chaplain John Jordan—a clerical detective cut from a different cloth.

24 Anti-terrorism, citizenship and security

Author : Lee Jarvis & Michael Lister
Genre :  Politics & Current Events  Books  Nonfiction  Social Science 
Price :  $109.99
Release Date :  2015-08-01
Description :  This book explores how different publics make sense of and evaluate anti-terrorism powers within the UK, and the implications of this for citizenship and security. Since 9/11, the UK's anti-terrorism framework has undergone dramatic changes, and introduced numerous new pieces of legislation. Drawing on primary empirical research, this book examines the impact of these changes on security and citizenship, as perceived by citizens themselves. It examines the impact on different communities within the UK, and finds that generally, while white individuals were not unconcerned about the effects of anti-terrorism, ethnic minority citizens (and not Muslim communities alone) believe that anti-terrorism measures have had a direct, negative impact on various dimensions of their citizenship and security. This book offers the first systematic engagement with 'vernacular' or 'everyday' understandings of anti-terrorism policy, citizenship and security. Beyond an empirical analysis of citizen attitudes, it argues that while transformations in anti-terrorism frameworks impact on public experiences of security and citizenship, they do not do so in a uniform, homogeneous, or predictable manner. At the same time, public understandings and expectations of security and citizenship themselves shape how developments in anti-terrorism frameworks are discussed and evaluated. The relationships between these phenomenon, in other words, are both multiple and co-constitutive. By detailing these findings, this book adds depth and complexity to existing studies of the impact of anti-terrorism powers. The book will be of interest to researchers and students working in a wide range of academic disciplines including political science, international relations, security studies and sociology.

Double&#xa0;Exposure&#xa0;includes a special introduction by bestselling author Michael Connelly.<br /><br />"Burnt Offerings is vintage Michael Lister . . . poetic prose, exquisitely set scenes, characters who are damaged and faulty. Not since Thomas Harris wrote about a guy named Hannibal have I enjoyed a villain so much. It's the best of the Lister novels I've read." Ed Irvin, The Florida Book Review<br /><br />"Lister tells a multilayered story about an FDLE agent who teams up with an expert in ritual crimes to stop a murderer who uses fire as his weapon. Grisly and gripping, the novel should appeal to crime-fiction fans of many stripes, especially readers of Florida-themed fiction." Booklist<br /><br />"A psychopath, who burns people alive as part of a twisted sacrificial rite, terrorizes north Florida in Lister's suspenseful serial killer thriller, Burnt Offerings. The murderer's motive is not typical, and the leads are strong enough to warrant a series." Publisher's Weekly<br /><br />In his introduction to "Double Exposure," #1 New York Times Besteslling Author, Michael Connelly, calls the book "Elegiac, like a two-hundred page poem, with words that skip on the waters of the imagination like well-polished stones."&#xa0;&#xa0;<br /><br />"Double Exposure" is absolutely riveting! Elegiac prose, insightful characterization and a wonderfully ingenious plot." Michael Connelly<br /><br />In Blood Oath John Jordan is once again carrying a gun and a badge—and he’s going to need them. Balancing family life with being a cop and a prison chaplain takes grit and grace—and John has plenty of both. Working two cases that may or may not be connected, John is investigating the disappearance of a young army ranger home on leave and one of the most sadistic serial killers he’s ever encountered.&#xa0;<br />&#xa0;
