Prey (PS3553.C86-1 2003)

Book Description

The new novel from the bestselling author of Jurassic Park. A terrifying page-turner in classic Crichton tradition, masterfully combining the elements of a heart-pounding thriller with cutting-edge technology. Deep in the Nevada desert, the Xymos Corporation has built a state-of-the-art fabrication plant, surrounded by nothing but cactus and coyotes for miles and miles. Inside, eight people are trapped -- because outside, waiting for them, looking for them, is a predatory swarm of micro-particles that they themselves created. The swarm is getting bigger and more powerful by the hour, and they must find a way to stop it before it gets inside -- unless it's already too late...Once again, Michael Crichton combines up-to-the-minute science with relentless pacing to create an electrifying techno-thriller.

The scarlet letter (PS1868.H31 2009)

Overview

Have you ever tried to read The Scarlet Letter but realized midway through the second sentence that you were already lost? No Fear: The Scarlet Letter will change all that. No need to worry about losing the thread anymore: whenever Hawthorne’s sentences become too convoluted to follow, or you can’t figure out exactly what he’s talking about, simply look across at the right-hand page and a simplified, modernized text—using the kind of English we actually speak today—will set you back on track. Soon you’ll be reading Hawthorne’s own words fearlessly—and actually enjoying it.

Gecko tails: a journey through Cambodia (DS554.L76 2000)

From Library Journal

In 1991, the Paris Peace Agreements ended military conflict and mandated democratic elections in Cambodia. The author, an aspiring journalist, arrived when the country was provisionally governed by the United Nations Temporary Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC), which monitored the 1993 elections. Her intention is to chronicle the impact of foreigners (the UN mission, aid workers, journalists, photographers, etc.) before and after the election. Livingston's social locus is the Gecko, a bar named after a small lizard. Her recorded conversations with feckless UNTAC workers and self-serving freelancers pursuing feature and photo opportunities are uninstructive and ineffectual to her purpose. Furthermore, when she makes day or overnight excursions from Phnom Penh to the Cambodian countryside (qualifying as "a journey through Cambodia"), she extrapolates little significant political or cultural insight.

Sense and sensibility (PR4034.Au7K62 2004)

Overview

One of Jane Austen's most beloved novels, brought to life in a sparkling dramatization!

When Mr. Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and three daughters (Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret) in straitened circumstances. They are taken in by a kindly cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne. When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward Ferrars, his family disapproves and separates them. And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy (and rich) Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery Willoughby more to her taste. Both relationships are sorely tried. But this is a romance, and through the hardships and heartbreak, true love and a happy ending will find their way for both the sister who is all sense and the one who is all sensibility.

The Dashwood sisters are very different from each other in appearance and temperament; Elinor's good sense and readiness to observe social forms contrast with Marianne's impulsive candor and warm but excessive sensibility. Both struggle to maintain their integrity and find happiness in the face of a competitive marriage market.

The Canterbury tales (PR1870.C39W93 1998)

From Barnes & Noble

Over the years, octogenarian translator Burton Raffel has tackled and conquered many of the most forbidding challenges in world literature: Beowulf, Gargantua and Pantagruel, Don Quixote, the Nibelungenleid. This book finds him grappling quite gracefully with another behemoth, Geoffrey Chaucer's 14th-century classic The Canterbury Tales. For modern readers, the robustness and subtlety of this collection is often diluted by the vagaries of language evolution. With a respectful poetic hand, Raffel retouches Chaucer's minutely realized word portraits, recovering their sheen. A Modern Library translation destined to be both popular and critical acclaimed.

Do not lose heart (BV4905.2.D79D79 1998)

Overview

Devotional thoughts for those who are suffering--never minimizing pain, but always maximizing hope.

There is no way to escape suffering. Sooner or later each one of us faces terrible loss or disappointment, whether the circumstance is divorce, the death of a loved one, the loss of a career, or a terminal illness. At such times, inspiring stories with happily-ever-after endings may not meet the need.

Do Not Lose Heart is a collection of meditations for those who need to hear the truth about life in a fallen world and about how to get through suffering intact. Based on 2 Corinthians 4:16-18, Do Not Lose Heart affirms the deep peace that comes from trusting in a wise and loving God.

Leadership by the book (PS3552.B59H99 1999)

Overview

Recounting the story of a teacher, a minister, and a marketplace leader who support one another in their leadership challenges, this extraordinary book offers unexpected and exceptional answers to tough leadership issues such as: How do I best serve our customers by serving our people? How can I unify my personal beliefs and my role as a leader in a way that feels good "deep down" and still produces desired results?

Picture bride (PS3571.Uc4)

Carrying a photograph of the man she is to marry but has yet to meet, young Hana Omiya arrives in San Francisco, California, in 1917, one of several hundred Japanese "picture brides" whose arranged marriages brought them to America in the early 1900s.

Her story is intertwined with others: her husband Taro Takeda, an Oakland shopkeeper; Kiku and her husband Henry, who reject demeaning city work to become farmers; Dr. Kaneda, a respected community leader who is destroyed by the adopted land he loves. All are caught up in the cruel turmoil of World War II, when West Coast Japanese Americans are uprooted from their homes and imprisoned in desert concentration camps. Although tragedy strikes each of them, the same spirit and strength that brought her to America enable Hana to survive.

The tempest (PR2833.G35 1995)

Overview

This joyous play, the last comedy of Shakespeare's career, sums up his stagecraft with a display of seemingly effortless skill. Prospero, exiled Duke of Milan, living on an enchanted island, has the opportunity to punish and forgive his enemies when he raises a tempest that drives them ashore—as well as to forestall a rebellion, to arrange the meeting of his daughter, Miranda, with an eminently suitable young prince, and, more important, to relinquish his magic powers in recognition of his advancing age. Richly filled with music and magic, romance and comedy, the play's theme of love and reconciliation offers a splendid feast for the senses and the heart.

神學就是學神: 沒有終點的旅程 (BR118.L61 2011)

從認識呼召、接受裝備到委身事奉,闡明神學教育的目標、內容與方法,提醒有志接受神學教育者該具備的正確態度。

你想成為神學生嗎? 你適合念神學院嗎? 如何選擇合適的神學院呢?這是一本:為立志接受神學裝備者的預備課程為正在接受神學裝備者的學習指引為已經具備神學裝備者的提醒教導作者期望每位立志進神學院進修的學員,務必明確自己的呼召與所屬團體的呼召,而非一時衝動入讀,或僅將神學院當作轉職的跳板。

本書針對神學教育各層面作出深刻的剖析,坦白的陳述,使有志者在入學前先有正確的態度,學習時有適當的方式,畢業後有明確的事奉方向。神學教育就是要教育我們學像基督,以祂為榜樣。神學教育也是全方位的學習與成長,是一個終身的學習過程。
誠如馬丁路德所提倡的「信徒皆祭司」,我們都要以作「傳道人」為己任,用行為和言語見證上帝的福音,即便不在教會任職事奉,作者任教神學院二十多年,以豐富的教導與陪伴經驗,寫下本書。有如為有志進入神學院研讀者開設的先修課程,從認識呼召開始,到進入神學院的專業研習,到最後在事奉禾場中的自我超越等,針對不同階段,不同處境,於心理、靈性、智識等各層面,皆有詳盡中肯的闡明與提醒,如同良善牧人對羊群的諄諄善誘,是一本提供有心接受神學教育裝備者的最佳入門指引。

本書分為三部,共計六章,將神學教育分為三期,從如何確認個人領受進入神學院的呼召開始,如何選擇合適自己研習的神學院所,到進入神學院接受教育的各種情況,舉凡課程內容、學習方式、宗派衝突、生活情境、人際關係等各層面的剖析,最後到畢業後進入服事禾場可能面臨的諸多磨練與考驗的突破教導。並附錄配合各章之簡要作業,以更清楚回應學習所得。

基督信仰的靈修觀 (BV4490.L74a 2012)

本書收集了自初代教會至今,約十八位不等的信仰前輩之靈修精神及信仰觀念,其中不乏禱告的方式、讀經的心境、生活的準則等. . .。例如:初代教父起於「愛主精神」進入曠野沙漠中過有紀律的、嚴謹的隱修生活,我們亦可從其中認識到,雖在曠野空無一物,其屬靈爭戰更是激烈,屬靈甘泉甚是甘甜。安波羅修對基督徒的社會責任與負擔,有深刻的洞悉。奧古斯丁在靈修中對付自我的天人交戰,至終單單追求,早已存放在心中「神的愛」。賈仙提醒我們應藉著短句禱文,

經常思想上主。中世紀多瑪斯說:以愛產生虔誠、由虔誠培養愛,而默觀是進入虔誠生活的原因,以及伯納德簡樸精神的生活實踐,聖法蘭西斯的守貧精神並徹底的獻身與服侍他人,在他靈修過程中產生的神祕經歷與豐富的內在生活。從教會史來看,歷代信仰前輩身上及歷史事件中,可見聖靈運作的軌跡;但現代基督徒卻懶散而不願依此道去學習,卻試圖靠己力,祈求速成的心態,到處仿傚復興樣板,令欲振乏力的教會,奮興得力?信仰乃由聖靈動工帶領,建立在神的話語上。教會要奮興,必先從每個信徒開始,將信仰的基礎扎根在神的話語上,並同時倚靠聖靈帶領、操練靈性,引導我們行走在屬神的道路上。
