When challenged to give pastoral counsel to a grieving friend, Pastor Steve Singleton was inspired to write this simple volume of lessons that challenges conventional attitudes about handling grief. The author acknowledges the reality of pain and then challenges the Christian believer to initiate the process to come out of the place of grief and sorrow. He affirms that we “feel what we feel” and then inspires everyone to “get moving” from the grieving place. Using a combination of pastoral experiences and the Scriptures, Pastor Singleton provides a new outlook on the life of the grief-stricken.
A New Outlook is a study of revelation that employs a fictional setting to explore Christian religion and its background. The fictional setting serves the purpose of providing a narrative structure to what is otherwise a journey from infinite past, through cosmology, to the current world situation as regard to revelation, in history and in philosophico-theological conceptual development. This book is not an exercise of exegesis, but source material is scriptural and is never treated lightly. Only the fictional setting has a patina of entertainment and some grounding in the world of spoons and loons. To wit, there are no footnotes--scholarship is not obtrusive, but it does build the book.
This invaluable volume, written by group of internationally established scientists, presents an overview of the most recent findings on the biology of neutrophils. These cells have become a focus of attention in recent years because of their fascinating biochemistry and molecular biology and their ability to affect the functions of other cells. The book describes, in detail, the molecular events leading to neutrophil activation, migration, microbial killing, production of oxidative radicals and cytokines, and eventually to the death of these cells. It presents new information that has never been discussed in monographs before. It also gives a unique overview of the neutrophil's role in viral diseases, including Aids. Finally, the book describes how to improve the function of neutrophils and use these cells in the treatment of diseases.
