Discover the truth about sin every Christian must know. If you think you understand sin, think again. RANSOM: The High Cost of Sin from Dean H. Harvey reframes this most important Christian concept for an eye-opening book that will change your relationship with God. Built on solid Scripture, Ransom shows how our self-centered focus on big sins-how they affect us in the here and now-is fundamentally misplaced. Rather, Harvey explains how the primary consequence of sin is to God-in the form of a broken heart. The secondary cost of sin is to the sinner-in his current life and the one to come. Third in line are those around us, who are all affected by our sins in some way. And finally, the highest cost of sin is that it emptied Heaven of its best to provide a ransom on the cross-in order to bring "so great salvation to all sinners who would repent and turn from sin. Straightforward and easy to understand, Ransom is a must read for anyone looking to more fully understand the bible and its remarkable insight for living a Christian life. "The author admonishes the reader to live each day to bring joy, and not grief, to the heart of God, who loves us and gave Himself for a sin-offering as a fulfillment of the Old Testament sacrifices." -George (Jed) Smock, Campus Ministries USA "It is my humble opinion that there is a high cost that comes with failing to understand the powerful truth contained in the pages of this book." -Michail E.

Ransom, the new collection from Michael Symmons Roberts, is an intense and vivid exploration of liberty and limit, of what it means to be alive, and searches for the possibility of hope in a fallen, wounded world. The poems in Ransom display all the lyrical beauty and metaphysical ambition for which his work is acclaimed, but with a new urgency, a ragged edge to what the Independent described as his 'dazzling elegance'. At the heart of this new book are three powerful sequences - one set in occupied Paris, one an elegy for his father, and one a meditation on gratitude - that work at the edges of belief and doubt, both mystical and philosophical. The idea of 'ransom' is turned and turned again, poem by poem, seen through the lenses of personal grief and loss, cinematic scenes of kidnap and release, narratives of incarnation and atonement. This is a profound and timely book from one of our finest poets.

Now a beautiful young woman, Gillian finds the key to resolving her past in handsome Scottish chieftains Ramsey Sinclair and Brodick Buchanan. With the cunning and courage of the daring Scotsmen, and with the friendship of a new ally, Bridgid KirkConnell, Gillian at last fights the unscrupulous Baron Alford, laying claim to her home, her family, and her father's reputation. But in the presence of the mighty warrors, Gillian and Bridgid discover that desire can be a weapon of conquest, betrayal can slay trust in a heartbeat, and the greatest risk of all is to surrender to unexpected love.

Kidnap for Ransom

The enormous sums paid for the release of hostages coupled with law enforcement’s inability to stem the tide has made kidnapping for ransom a worldwide plague. The increasing rate of reported incidents from every corner of the globe suggests this plague is growing. Kidnap for Ransom: Resolving the Unthinkable removes the veil of mystery and dispels some of the myths surrounding kidnapping. The book provides security professionals, families, and law enforcement personnel with the modern tools needed to understand and effectively respond to the crime of kidnapping. This volume traces the historical development of kidnapping for ransom and studies the behaviors of perpetrators, victims, and families. The author makes extensive use of case histories, and includes comments and anecdotes from those who have actually suffered at the hands of kidnappers. Based on his vast experience managing these incidents, the author provides an overview of the series of activities that represent the best opportunity for a successful resolution of a kidnap for ransom scenario. This tried and tested methodology for confronting kidnapping situations enables victims, families, and organizations to have a fighting chance. In addition, the book examines how kidnappers operate and describes the methods they use to select, target and abduct their victims. The work also details preventive measures that an individual can take to avoid becoming a victim, and the strategies that one must apply to survive a kidnapping. This is the first book to examine the kidnap for ransom phenomenon and to reveal the process from the moment of the kidnapping until the victim’s safe return. The author’s experience as the principal consultant and manager in the successful resolution of numerous kidnapping and extortion incidents makes this book an invaluable tool for those charged with the responsibility of kidnap prevention, as well as for those law enforcement agents called on to mitigate the potential consequences of an abduction in progress.

Recent interest in the life and works of John Crowe Ransom has brought to light the many apparent contradictions and discontinuities in the career of this important man of letters. A noted poet, Ransom chose to devote his energies primarily to the composition of prose. A southern agrarian in the 1930s, he later rejected the movement as nostalgic and unrealistic. But perhaps more central to his development as a man of letters, he came to renounce all traditional religious beliefs, even though he was descended from a line of Methodist ministers. In John Crowe Ransom’s Secular Faith Keiran Quinlan examines these and other incongruities within the context of the writer’s career and offers a substantially revisionist interpretation of his subject. Quinlan argues that the key to understanding Ransom’s development lies in “his early rejection of the tenets of Christian theology and in his consequent effort at articulating an alternative philosophy to live by.” Ransom’s literary efforts are viewed as a philosophical project aimed at discovering an empirical validity for the world rather than a transcendental one. Quinlan examines Ransom’s development against the background of the literary and philosophic movements that influenced the writer. He shows how thinkers like Kant, Hegel, Dewey, and the logical positivists, and poets like Arnold, Hardy, Stevens, Eliot, and Graves, all made significant contributions to Ransom’s progress. Although Ransom has often been allied with T.S. Eliot, who turned to religion and a transcendental knowledge of the world, Quinlan contends that Ransom’s real sympathies were with Wallace Stevens, who south a suitable substitute for religious faith in the celebration of a world he felt was emptied of its transcendental component. Ransom’s difficulties are in many ways symptomatic of the struggles of our age—the supplanting of God and a supernatural world view by scientific advances, the loss of faith, and thus the need to find an alternative meaning in existence. Quinlan stresses that although the gradual emergence of Ransom’s “secular faith” was a direct result of his lifelong dialogue with the Christian tradition, his final belief was that “‘this is the best of all possible worlds’; inasmuch as it is not possible for imagination to acquaint is with any other world.” Quinlan concludes, therefore, that Ransom belongs squarely in the American pragmatist tradition.
