Download or read book Love Letters to the Dead written by Ava Dellaira and published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR). This book was released on 2014-04-01 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May did. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to people like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, and more -- though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family. And, finally, about the abuse she suffered while May was supposed to be looking out for her. Only then, once Laurel has written down the truth about what happened to herself, can she truly begin to accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was -- lovely and amazing and deeply flawed -- can she begin to discover her own path in this stunning debut from Ava Dellaira, Love Letters to the Dead.
Download or read book Teaching Death and Dying written by Christopher M. Moreman and published by Oxford University Press on Demand. This book was released on 2008 with total page 283 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The academic study of death rose to prominence during the 1960s. Courses on some aspect of death and dying can now be found at most institutions of higher learning. These courses tend to stress the psycho-social aspects of grief and bereavement, however, ignoring the religious elements inherent to the subject. This collection is the first to address the teaching of courses on death and dying from a religious-studies perspective. The book is divided into seven sections. The hope is that this volume will not only assist teachers in religious studies departments to prepare to teach unfamiliar and emotionally charged material, but also help to unify a field that is now widely scattered across several disciplines.

Download or read book LOVE LETTERS written by Helen M. Moss and published by AuthorHouse. This book was released on 2015-08-30 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What is a Love Letter? Merriam Webster’s online dictionary defines love as an unselfish, loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another: as (1): the fatherly concern of God for humankind (2): brotherly concern for others b: a person’s adoration of God. Love Letters; Paul’s Epistles and Ministry to the Early Church is the epitome of this type of love. For Paul’s letters to the early church illuminated his love for God manifested in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as well as his true affection for the Jews and Gentiles who were establishing the early Bodies of Christ—the church. This book chronicles the Apostle Paul’s missionary journeys through the Roman Empire teaching and preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to both Jewish Christians and Gentiles. The epistles, letters, written to the early churches served several purposes. They contained heartfelt greetings, praise, thanksgiving, words of encouragement, and when necessary, chastisements. But more importantly, the Love Letters conveyed the unconditional love of Jesus Christ for the believer. The epistles to the early churches also helped to form doctrine, church order, conduct and traditions plus accepted leadership qualities along with responsibilities. The tone of the letters was infused with Paul’s genuine benevolent concern for and loyalty to the early Christians establishing churches in a hostile environment. Love Letters; Paul’s Epistles and Ministry to the Early Church while serving as an examination of the early church and its formation, it also can be a template for the church today as it meets the challenges of the contemporary world.

He then unpacks each sentence in a short chapteranswering the question, What does God want me to hear from this loveletter? The book's epilogue then fits all sixty-six pieces of thejigsaw puzzle together into one coherent paragraph and reveals thebeautiful picture of what God has been about since the creation of theworld. Far from being comprehensive, this is a personal approach tohelping readers know God and his great love for them, his message forall mankind, and how their lives fit into His larger story.
Download or read book Love Letters to the Beloved written by Dr. Laura Wright Mathews and published by Author House. This book was released on 2010-08-06 with total page 68 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “Remember the former things of old: For I am God, and there is non else; I am God and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times, the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.” (Isaiah 46:9-10). “The seven churches are literal churches from the first century A.D. However the seven churches in Revelation also have spiritual significance for churches and believers today. Indeed, the primary purpose for John’s writing his letters was to deliver Christ’s “report card” or the churches of that time. However, a second purpose for John’s inspired writings was to describe seven types of churches (and individual believers) that would surface time and again throughout history. These short letters to the seven churches of Revelation act as quick and poignant reminders to those who call themselves “followers of Christ.”

Download or read book Love Letters to a Sacred Prostitute written by Gary and published by AuthorHouse. This book was released on 2012-11 with total page 712 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A spiritual and knowledgeable woman once told me that I was a Sacred Prostitute. She explained that a Sacred Prostitute is someone who soothes, nurtures and heals another and then sends them on their way to find their true destiny, a better, more emotionally complete person for the experience. I was initially confused, but eventually relieved and elated by this possibility. I sometimes felt guilty because it wasn't possible for me to ignore a woman who was strong or beautiful or talented or sweet. I had many deep but relatively short lived relationships. I was in love with many of these women. I respected and admired every single one of them. I found them simply amazing. I was never looking for notches on a bedpost, only searching for my one true Love. Many left me and moved on, found another. I was left alone, again and again, wondering...But maybe there was a reason for such an active lovelife. Maybe I really am a Sacred Prostitute! After all, very few of the women seemed to hate me when we parted. And most were married shortly after their time spent with me. I can't tell you why I was chosen as a Sacred Prostitute. I can't tell you how to become one yourself. But, in this book, I share the journeys, the thoughts and passions of 89 women that loved one, in their own words.
