As chosen by The BBC RADIO 2 BOOK CLUB and one of The TELEGRAPH'S CRIME BOOKS OF THE YEAR. 'Remarkable' Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2 It's easy to judge between right and wrong - isn't it? Not until you hear a convincing truth. Now it's up to you to decide... An unnamed defendant stands accused of murder. Just before the Closing Speeches, the young man sacks his lawyer, and decides to give his own defence speech. He tells us that his barrister told him to leave some things out. Sometimes, the truth can be too difficult to explain, or believe. But he thinks that if he's going to go down for life, he might as well go down telling the truth. There are eight pieces of evidence against him. As he talks us through them one by one, his life is in our hands. We, the reader - member of the jury - must keep an open mind till we hear the end of his story. His defence raises many questions... but at the end of the speeches, only one matters: Did he do it?

When Sr. Miriam James Heidland’s life as a successful college athlete proved unfulfilling, she went searching for something deeper and ended up falling in love with Jesus. By charting her own journey toward wholeness, Heidland invites young Catholics to pursue their own relationship with Jesus. Although originally full of athletic ambition and goals for a career in sports news, Heidland was transformed in a very slow but deep way during her undergraduate years, moving from party girl to bride of Christ. In Loved as I Am: An Invitation to Conversion, Healing, and Freedom through Jesus, Heidland helps readers learn from her experience of seeking love in the wrong places and instead finding it in Christ. She shares her struggles—learning she was adopted, battling alcoholism, and healing from childhood sexual abuse—as signs of hope that anyone who desires to know Christ can find him and be loved intimately by him in return. By bringing readers into Heidland’s healing process, Loved as I Am provides a gentle and subtle template for finding peace and freedom in Jesus.

Can you ever get over the loss of a 'soulmate'/loved one? By: Dorothy Farley Co-Author, (3) 5-Star Rated Books Listen, I'm Still Here – Part I I'm Always Here – Part II Everlasting "Love" – That Is – Part III The Continuation of Love from the Other Side Spirituality – Life After Death MY TRUTH: NO! NOT REALLY, AND CERTAINLY 'NOT COMPLETELY'! HOWEVER, with the passing of time (for me, now seven years since the transition of my beloved husband and soulmate, Jack Farley) one's understanding deepens, and the gradual 'acceptance' that we are all spirit beings with eternal life awakens within us, and "everything is as it should be," as Jack expresses from heaven. There is no ending at death – for life, living and learning continue on and on, in another dimension. Real growth and the reason for our being here on this Earth begins to shine forth for us and reveals life's profound meaning, and why we are here. We see more clearly the only two emotions, 'FEAR' or 'LOVE'. We begin opening our heart to more LOVE – LOVE for everything around us, LOVE for everyone we meet, for everything we see and do – and for ourselves. Let's not forget ourselves. We remember: "LOVE is all there is," affirmed by Jack. Staying in the LOVE VIBRATION is what I have learned to do, and this is where I can reach and connect with the responsive vibration of my beloved husband. Anyone can make this conversational connection – it is a matter of choice – our choice for our loved ones are always here around us in many forms; it is up to us to open our heart to the deepest, most pure LOVE, and in so doing elevate our vibration to reaching and hearing them. This is possible, if we make the choice and BELIEVE we can. Remember, loved ones are always 'living' in spirit form – for it is the perfection of our soul that we are seeking. Even when these TRUTHS are known, it is all easier said than done, but becomes more permanently possible as time goes by, and the light of a new future shines forth.

Inside the covers of this book you will find the Real Scriptures' of the Christian churches. Many church leaders know that other Christian churches hold to these books but they are only willing to state what they have been brain-washed to believe, that is about the other inferior books: "It isn't in the canon" (of scripture) formed of course by the early Catholic Church at various stages and Councils from the fourth century A.D. therefore no one has the right to change what is in the canon of scripture and the Catholic Church changed it in their councils not in agreement of other Christians but to hide their offence at the words of God. They would not even imagine that different churches have different scriptures and assume that the correct canon of scripture must be the one first declared by the Catholic Church and its priests but other priests must be considered demented or apostate, but they are not affected by the changes they made to the canon of Scripture over many centuries. They will not consider the canons of Orthodox Churches or others because they vary in different regions of the world. So is European Christianity based in the Vatican City right about all its holy scriptures while everyone else's church scriptures are false scriptures? Ethiopia it seems got most books of scripture right even with their translation into an ancient language! The Real Scriptures', edited by James Platter above, a layman who formerly studied the scriptures for many years with the Baptist Bible Fellowship in San Dimas, California in the United States, but now rejects the reduced 1627 A.D. Version of the KJV Bible, and formally learned the Greek language of the New Testament at Capernwray Missionary Fellowship, Moss Vale, N. S. W. Australia under the Reverend Alan Catchpoole in 1973.

Welcome to the Story of God

Because so few Americans have served in the military since 9/11—or even know anyone who has—many look to the media for information about veterans and military service. Popular news outlets, however, traffic in tragedy and often paint those who have fought in Iraq and Afghanistan with one of three broad brushes: as superhuman; as broken, disabled, and traumatized; or as dangerous, ticking time bombs. See Me for Who I Am aims to undermine these stereotypes. It brings together twenty young student veterans working to bridge the media-created gap that divides them from the American people they have fought to protect. With thoughtfulness, humor, and honesty, they relive and relate their worst memories, illustrate shared experiences, explain to us the fulfillment of combat, and show us what going to war really entails. For veterans, these voices will ring familiar. For civilians, the stories open a view into a world few ever see and, in the process, affirm our common humanity.
