From Hawaii at the turn of the twentieth century to the post-Civil War frontier, from smoggy Los Angeles to the woods of Idaho, these gripping stories trace the perils and occasional triumphs of lawmen and -women who put themselves in harm's way to face down the bad guys. Some of them even walk the edge of becoming bad guys themselves. In T. Jefferson Parker's “Skinhead Central”, an ex-cop and his wife find unexpected menace in the idyllic setting they have chosen for their retirement. In Alafair Burke's “Winning”, a female officer who is attacked in the line of duty must protect her own husband from his worst impulses. Other authors in the collection include the acclaimed Laurie R. King; Edgar winners Edward D. Hoch and Jon L. Breen; Dagger winner and bestseller John Harvey, as well as the bestselling Peter Robinson. Most important, there's Michael Connelly himself as editor. His own contribution, an original Harry Bosch story, crowns this outstanding collection.

Nature religions look to rivers, lakes and oceans for inspiration and spiritual transformation. 'Deep Blue' brings together the work of influential scholars in the field of nature religion, ranging across anthropology, mythology, sociology and psychology. The essays examine the interrelationship between spiritual practice, critical thinking, and environmental concern. Tracing the ancient history of humanity's close relationship with both salt and fresh water, the book calls for a sustainable relationship with water in contemporary western culture. 'Deep Blue' will be of interest to students of paganism and religion, environmental researchers and activists, and all those involved in the intersection between religion and ecology.

This book is dedicated to recovering alcoholics and addicts all over the world. Although I have been counseling recovering alcoholics and addicts for over thirty years, an opposing force seems to interrupt the process. That opposing force appears to be religion. People in recovery seem to believe that the “Higher Power” and religion is one in the same. When expressing their inability to turn their will over to a Higher Power, they make the following statements: “Those folk in church are always judging me. It seems like they’re sharping their knives as I tell my story. They look down on me and act like they are better than me.” I found that to be very detrimental to their recovery process. So I did my best to explain to them that religion is a man-made concept, and that the “Higher Power” is a divine existence well beyond man’s control. Apparently, they were talking about Religious Fundamentalist, which, according to World Atlas, are people who believe in the absolute authority of a sacred religious text or teaching of a particular religious leader, prophet, and God. Beliefs and feelings, rather than fact, make Religion the most powerful phenomenon known to man! Am I confused by religion, or did religion confuse me? It is clear that most people participating in organized religion are nothing more than a group of bullies. They adopt a cause and loosely quote a scripture from the Bible to justify their quest. In most cases, the cause that they are against does not affect them directly. For example, a bowling establishment is being bullied by the church members belonging to a church located next door. Representatives from the church said that they would boycott the bowling establishment if the establishment sold beer. Please note that the bowling establishment was built and established before the church was built next to it.

"There are no unsacred places," the poet Wendell Berry has written. "There are only sacred places and desecrated places." What might it mean to behold the world with such depth and feeling that it is no longer possible to imagine it as something separate from ourselves, or to live without regard for its well-being? To understand the work of seeing things as an utterly involving moral and spiritual act? Such questions have long occupied the center of contemplative spiritual traditions. In The Blue Sapphire of the Mind, Douglas E. Christie proposes a distinctively contemplative approach to ecological thought and practice that can help restore our sense of the earth as a sacred place. Drawing on the insights of the early Christian monastics as well as the ecological writings of Henry David Thoreau, Aldo Leopold, Annie Dillard, and many others, Christie argues that, at the most basic level, it is the quality of our attention to the natural world that must change if we are to learn how to live in a sustainable relationship with other living organisms and with one another. He notes that in this uniquely challenging historical moment, there is a deep and pervasive hunger for a less fragmented and more integrated way of apprehending and inhabiting the living world--and for a way of responding to the ecological crisis that expresses our deepest moral and spiritual values. Christie explores how the wisdom of ancient and modern contemplative traditions can inspire both an honest reckoning with the destructive patterns of thought and behavior that have contributed so much to our current crisis, and a greater sense of care and responsibility for all living beings. These traditions can help us cultivate the simple, spacious awareness of the enduring beauty and wholeness of the natural world that will be necessary if we are to live with greater purpose and meaning, and with less harm, to our planet.

Can contemporary art say anything about spirituality? John Updike calls modern art "a religion assembled from the fragments of our daily life," but does that mean that contemporary art is spiritual? What might it mean to say that the art you make expresses your spiritual belief? On the Strange Place of Religion in Contemporary Art explores the curious disconnection between spirituality and current art. This book will enable you to walk into a museum and talk about the spirituality that is or is not visible in the art you see.
