Mystery crime fiction written in the Golden Age of Murder "The 'stranger in a strange land' premise works really well in this revived mystery...Bude infuses the tale with comic commentary throughout." —Booklist 'Small hostilities were growing; vague jealousies were gaining strength; and far off, wasn't there a nebulous hint of approaching tragedy in the air?' Welworth Garden City in the 1940s is a forward-thinking town where free spirits find a home—vegetarians, socialists, and an array of exotic religious groups. Chief among these are the Children of Osiris, led by the eccentric High Prophet, Eustace K. Mildmann. The cult is a seething hotbed of petty resentment, jealousy and dark secrets—which eventually lead to murder. The stage is set for one of Inspector Meredith's most bizarre and exacting cases. This witty crime novel by a writer on top form is a neglected classic of British crime fiction.

Recent scholarship on the historical Jesus has rightly focused upon how Jesus understood his own mission. But no scholarly effort to understand the mission of Jesus can rest content without exploring the historical possibility that Jesus envisioned his own death. In this careful and far-reaching study, Scot McKnight contends that Jesus did in fact anticipate his own death, that Jesus understood his death as an atoning sacrifice, and that his death as an atoning sacrifice stood at the heart of Jesus' own mission to protect his own followers from the judgment of God.

Mark Miller has spent his life half-ass repenting for all the things he's done wrong, but there's one blotch on his record that he can't erase. He wants to forget his transgressions and pursue a passionless life as an academic, but his new roommates force him to confront his past. Ever since he killed that man in Texarkana, Mark's been hiding from the unnerving stare of God. Now he has to endure his roommates' southern-fried theories about religion. If he can survive their spiritual experiments, live through a drive-by shooting, outwit the old lady next door, escape from the cops, figure out the secret of the bus stop signs, and return the forty-foot-tall inflatable green gorilla to its rightful owners, he might just catch a glimpse of what he's been looking for.

This book is an attempt to give people the only peace they will likely have on earth (personal peace). That peace is attainable, while international or societal peace depends on too many individuals (who dont wish peace). If you seek to make a life without the conflicts that society tells us are unavoidable, it can be done. You just need to know how and have faith that it can be accomplished (if you dont give in).
