Well Ordered Chaos from the Author: Sam Ginest. Twelve-year-old Steve Guralt has only one desire: to return to his mother's home. But on the three separate occasions that Steve has attempted to complete that journey, his efforts have been thwarted by people he can only describe as "bad men." While on his way to Houston to see his mom, Steve is so thoroughly traumatized by the necessity of running and hiding that the friendly voice of Carmen Torres, a helpful flight attendant, makes him cringe with fear and distrust. Carmen is able to overcome Steve's initial barriers, and she learns enough of his story to be convinced that this little boy needs help. She promises Steve that any more "bad men" will have to fight her if they try to take him again. Unknown to Carmen, this remarkable little boy, who has no earthly reason to trust anyone, was born with the gift of seeing things as they are. His natural tendency to say what he thinks leads him to a chance encounter with a man who changes his life forever. With the help of Carmen and an intuitive ally, Steve begins the long and difficult journey of training and hardship that will shape the rest of his life.

Order From Chaos from the Author: Liz Davenport. The Six Steps to Organizational Freedom Do you: *Miss important deadlines at work? *Forget to return urgent phone calls? *Lose papers that were “just here a minute ago”? *Have multiple layers of sticky notes on your computer? *Leave projects unfinished for days, weeks, or even months at a time? If any of these sound familiar, then you are among the ranks of the disorganized—whether mildly or completely—and Liz Davenport has written this book just for you. Order from Chaos is the organizing book for disorganized people. In six easy steps she offers a system that will help you clean up your act. She demonstrates how to clear your desk by teaching you what's trash and why, reveals what a calendar is really meant to be, and provides a no-fail system for prioritization. At the end of the day, your desk will be clear and your mind will be free to relax. Rather than offering overcomplicated instructions for filing systems and time management plans, Order from Chaos focuses on ease of use. There is not one person—from office assistant to CEO—who will not benefit from this straightforward, easy-to-maintain plan. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Ordered Chaos from the Author: Mary Ellen Ryder. This work presents a model for novel compound interpretation using Cognitive Grammar and schema theory. The model, based on analysis of established compounds and responses to novel compounds, claims that speakers try using real-world schemas attached to both element nouns to construct a relationship between them by matching already established patterns. When this is impossible, speakers often "metaphorize" the head noun.

Christ In The Chaos from the Author: Kimm Crandall. Moms: Look to the gospel for your rest, joy, sufficiency, and motivation. For far too long mothers have been beaten down by the law of "do better" and "try harder." The burden of "getting it right" threatens to crush weary souls who desire to serve their families faithfully. Christ in the Chaos brings comfort to conflicted hearts that are starved of grace and longing for the freedom in Christ the Bible promises. In this book, Kimm Crandall emphasizes the importance of the gospel and how Christ's life, death, and resurrection change every aspect of motherhood. From finding our identity in Christ and understanding God's grace to taking off the mask of acceptability and dealing with the comparison crud, this book will free you to serve your family knowing that his love for you does not change based on your performance. Christ in the Chaos is a "must read" for every mother who longs for what is seemingly impossible: peace and freedom in the midst of her chaos.

A Beautiful Mess from the Author: Danielle Strickland. We like plans, strategies, caution – but God’s chaotic order is far bigger than our expectations. “My experience of life with God is messy,” says Danielle Strickland. “It’s a mix of failure and success, courage and fear, faith and doubt. Since God invaded my life, my whole world has been a beautiful mess. I’ve been re-created by a designer who loves to recycle. “My life has taken a new shape. It’s characterised by light and love. It’s a celebration. Even if it looks a little out of control, it belongs a loving God who has a beautiful plan. “This book is an invitation. You are invited to journey into God’s creative plan to make a beautiful mess of your life and your plans. Like a master artist, He is ready to take the colours of your current life and craft them into a beauty that is beyond our comprehension.”

After Communism from the Author: Carol Harrington. Freed from direct political constraints, many sociologists from former Communist countries have sought to maintain a clear distinction between research and politics through an attachment to objectivity, conceptual clarity and methodological rigour. Yet they have often sidestepped the critique of epistemological certainties which has become orthodoxy in much 'Western' thinking, and which has implicated sociology in the very structures of power it describes. This collection of writings, based on the 2002 Critical Sociology Conference held at Tbilisi State University in Georgia, was produced by sociologists working as members of or visitors to post-Communist states. As such, it reflects the tension between the desire for scholarly distance and an acknowledgement that the construction of knowledge is always a political act and a product of hierarchical social relations. Whether considering the issue of political legitimacy in Kyrgyzstan, the political nature of discourse about Eastern Europe, or problems of institutionalisation in Georgia, the authors all seek to avoid the scepticism about the effects and ethics of sociology common in much Western social theory without falling back upon the positivist approaches apparent in much of the former Communist bloc and in important pockets of Western academia.

Well Ordered License from the Author: Markus Fischer. Interpreters of Machiavelli easily agree that his political writings have profoundly influenced our fundamental ideas of state and society, yet these interpreters rarely agree on what Machiavelli really thought. Did Machiavelli seek to recover classical republicanism in the Aristotelian tradition, or did he aspire to usher in modernity? Was he a cynic who assumed human beings to be inescapably wicked and offered technical advice to tyrants, or did he aim at some version of 'the good life'? Did he create a general theory of politics, or did he teach us that political issues should be approached in a particular contextual, dialectical, or rhetorical manner? Through systematic analysis, Markus Fischer's cogent and articulate study succeeds in resolving these questions. Well-Ordered License will appeal both to new students of Machiavelli and to scholars who have long sought to reconcile the seeming incoherence of his work.

Evolution Of Spontaneous Structures In Dissipative Continuous Systems from the Author: Friedrich H. Busse. This collection of articles forms a cohesive text on the rapidly evolving field of nonlinear dynamics of continous systems. It addresses researchers but it can also be used as a text for graduate work. The authors demonstrate through numerous examples the use of common tools of mathematical analyses and dynamical interpretations for the study of nonlinear phenomena. Instead of providing a comprehensive overview of the rapidly evolving field, the contributors treat the essence of what is known about the formation of spontaneous structures in dissipative continuous systems and about the competition between order and chaos that characterizes those systems. The topics discussed in this volume range from mathematical foundations to interpretations of concrete phenomena in fluids, chemical reactions, structure forming processes in semiconductors and even granular matter.

God Justice And Society from the Author: Jonathan Burnside. What is the real meaning of 'an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth'? Where did the idea for the 'Jubilee 2000' and 'Drop the Debt' campaigns come from? Here, Burnside looks at aspects of law and legality in the Bible, from the patriarchal narratives in the Hebrew Bible through to the trials of Jesus in the New Testament.
