Thin Places is an eloquent meditation on what it means to move between cultures and how one might finally come home, a particular paradox in a culture that lacks deep ties to the natural world. During the 1990s, Ann Armbrecht, an American anthropologist, made several trips to northeastern Nepal to research how the Yamphu Rai acquired, farmed, and held onto their land; how they perceived their area's recent designation as a national park and conservation area; and whether-as she believed-they held a wisdom about living on the earth that the industrialized West had forgotten. What Armbrecht found instead were men and women who shared her restlessness, people also driven by the feeling that there must be more to life than they could find in their village. Charting Armbrecht's travels in the mountains of Nepal and in the United States, as well as her disintegrating marriage back home, Thin Places is ultimately an exploration not of the sacred far-off but of the sacredness of places that are between?between the internal and external landscape, the self and others, and the self and the land. She finds that home is not a place where we arrive but a way of being in place, wherever that place may be.

In this third volume of his "Adventures in Spirituality" trilogy, Dr. Robert Vande Kappelle travels from Amsterdam to Cairo in search of his cultural and spiritual roots, inviting readers to join him in exploring fabled places across the Mediterranean World. Despite the grave problems centered in this region, it is the birthplace of Western civilization and the source of the world's three guiding religions. Readers unfamiliar with the emergence and development of Western civilization will find Into Thin Places a compelling introduction; others will discover here a new perspective. Affirming the human quest for adventure, meaning, and wholeness, Professor Vande Kappelle beckons adventurers to enjoy the wonderful experiences described in the book's "travel entries." Those seeking historical and cultural perspective will want to examine the numerous "explanatory entries" scattered throughout the narrative. These vignettes expand and deepen the storyline, piquing curiosity about seminal events, persons, and places that helped shape Western sensibility. As Dr. Vande Kappelle points out in his closing chapter, our world is in a state of crisis, precipitated by numerous factors but primarily by the loss of the sacred. "Whether the current crisis is curable is debatable, but it will clearly require massive cultural reorientation. More importantly, it will require a transformation of the human spirit and a commitment of will." Into Thin Places encourages readers to find "thin places"--places transparent to the divine--in their own transformative journeys of discovery.

Does the world need another grammar book? I think so. And it needs one because many of the existing books are filled with explanations using grammatical terms that many people don't understand, and the people who do understand don't need the book. Like all my grammar books, I have done everything possible to explain things clearly and without resorting to grammatical terms or complex explanations. Everything is in plain, simple English. Items covered in the book include: * Parts of Speech * Punctuation (all fourteen of them) * Grammar Myths * Miscellaneous * How to Use Numbers When Writing * Abbreviations, Initialisms, and Acronyms * Linking Verbs * Subject/Verb Agreement * Latin Abbreviations * (much more) * Plurals * Redundancies * Misused Words * Capitalization * Usage Issues * Punctuation of Dialogue With more than nine hundred pages, the book is a comprehensive reference for grammar. It also shows many of the issues where the AP Stylebook and the Chicago Manual of Style disagree. The most important thing is that the book explains everything in plain English so as not to be confusing. It is easy to understand and grasp for any reader. Only a basic understanding of grammar is necessary.

Imagination is one of the great gifts bestowed on us by our Creator, observe authors Gary and Kim Shockley, and it can be the spark that ignites a fire of change in our lives. Drawing on their more than thirty years of pastoral and church consulting experience, the Shockleys illustrate the power of imagination using personal stories born of their own quest to be faithful in ministry. They also show readers that imagining church is a shared experience among God's people. When we imagine the church--forming a mental image of what we believe the church is and ought to be--we are co-creators with the Master Designer, Chief Architect, and Greatest Creator, and can help others imagine church. They remind leaders, "If you can't see it, neither will anyone else." The Shockleys outline how we in the church are now laborers in a new kind of vineyard--one that requires a new way of thinking and acting in our postmodern world. They invite readers to step into the flow of God's activity and, using the gifts God has given us, cooperate in the work of ministry and mission. Rather than suggesting one model or process for church effectiveness ("do it this way and grow"), Imagining Church helps congregational leaders to think more imaginatively about how God is at work in our present ministry contexts. This will help to open ourselves anew to the Spirit of God--the Divine Artist--who is ready to fuel our desire to be the co-creators we are meant to be for the sake of the church.

Typography is language and design for reading. Typographic manual is the first manual for the cluster text style, i.e. for texts intended to be read for longer periods of time. Since the birth of typography (Gutenberg), we have created books with text rectangles that are nice to look at. The picture of the rectangle text held us captive. This manual clearly shows the inaccuracies in that approach. Depending on how we read, 100-600 wpm, and if we measure reading speed in wpm, day span, or week span, the cluster text style can be 5-30 percent better to read. Its longer line length, wider text column, larger sentence spacings, and better line changes improve legibility. All in all, this gives an exact typographic style, and therefore, it is not reflowable. So, please note that this book needs to be read on tablets at least 13 inches wide where you can read a line length of 95 characters (smaller tablets and smartphones are inappropriate). Typographic Manual (170 pages) is included in a collection of books with Readability - the Birth of the Cluster text (1000 pages), Typographical Investigations (500 pages), and Are Texts Wrongly Written? (130 pages) intended to shed light on questions about texts, typography, and reading in relation to questions about philosophy, science, and learning. The two shorter books can be seen as summaries of the two longer ones, and they are all written for the general public. The starting point is that it is both practically and philosophically interesting that we earlier have missed the opportunity to create a better typographic style - a cluster text style.

Grammar consists of many things, and one of the more important is punctuation. It is like the Rosetta Stone, providing the key to how writers want a reader to interpret what they wrote. Punctuation is even present when we speak. A slight pause is similar to a comma, a longer pause akin to a semicolon, and a stop equals a period. Question marks and exclamation points can be heard in the cadence of a person’s speech pattern and where the emphasis is placed and on which words. Almost all punctuation marks are represented in everyday speech, and therein lies the key to great dialogue—knowing how to use punctuation correctly with dialogue. There are some writers who are masters at it. Elmore Leonard was one of the best. Read his books, or listen to a few of the movies made from his books, and you’ll see a genius’s work. This book explains how to use punctuation in an easy-to-grasp manner.
