Rock Miller, elemento di spicco della più importante e segreta Agenzia di spionaggio statunitense, ha trascorso ben tre anni in un carcere d massima sicurezza per un crimine mai commesso. Non è stato lui a provocare la morte dei suoi compagni di missione in uno sciagurato attentato, ma l'interesse che ruota attorno al diabolico Magic Otero, farmaco sperimentale in grado di procurare ringiovanimenti prodigiosi per i quali in tanti sembrano disposti ad uccidere, e uccidere parecchio. Ken Harper è una giovane agente con un passato ingombrante alle spalle. Per lei l'Agenzia ha studiato una missione impossibile: eliminare Rock Miller, ormai solo una mina vagante di cui liberarsi nella maniera più veloce e indolore possibile. Fra i due saranno subito scintille mentre gli incubi e i fantasmi personali di Ken sembreranno ritornare e moltiplicarsi. Mistero ed erotismo dalla prima all'ultima pagina per un romanzo audace e spregiudicato. Consigliato ad un pubblico di lettori adulti.

Why do you lead worship? Often the motives are mixed. You find yourself wanting to point people to Jesus but also feeling a desire to be noticed and praised, to make yourself the center of attention. Maybe you want to make the best possible music for the most possible people but you find yourself leading a modest congregation in an unglamorous place. These mixed motivations can be difficult to unravel and can cause significant conflict, both internal and external. Stephen Miller is the worship pastor for a large church of young, energetic Christians. He and his band record albums and lead worship for conferences all over the country. He knows the temptation to make himself the show, to pursue fame, to seek the applause of other people. And he has learned to want nothing to do with it. In this book, Miller exhorts his fellow worship leaders to make Jesus the center of all their efforts. He teaches how to do this with scripture, teaching, prayer, story, and song. In all, Miller's call for worship leaders is to lead worship, whole-hearted and whole-minded exalting of God, rather than making a spectacle out of it. Worship Leaders, We're Not Rock Stars will encourage and challenge worship leaders by clarifying their purpose and identity, and by doing so will bless those they lead.

This study argues that this previously banned author devoted his entire life to articulating a religion of self-liberation in his autobiographical books, examining his life and work within the context of fringe religious movements that were linked with the avant-garde in New York City and Paris at the first of the 20thcentury. This study shows how these transatlantic movements – including Gurdjieff, Rosicrucianism, and Theosophy – gave him the hermeneutical devices, not to mention the creative license, to interpret texts and symbols from mainline religions in an iconoclastic manner, ranging from obscure Taoist treatises to the mystical works of Jacob Boehme. The influence of numerous philosophical sources widely circulated in his most critical years – particularly Henri Bergson’s Two Sources of Morality and Religion(1932) – also helped him develop a religious view situated between transcendence and immanence, in which self-liberation through the channeled flow of élan vital is the chief objective. Miller’s knowledge of these intellectual currents, along with his involvement with sidestream religious groups, inspired him to meld his religious and literary aims into one perplexing project.
