Resurrecting a Dead Letter

The neighborhood was dead quiet, except for the hum of traffic coming from Frost
Road. This world I grew up in that had loomed so large when I was ... I had
partaken of the abundance of human folly and fallibility. 41 Resurrecting a Dead
Letter.

A college dropout, twenty-year-old Vincent Martino works as a security guard in a parking garage—a job that gives him plenty of time to ponder and wonder about life, everything that goes with it, where he’s been, and where he’s going. Martino traces his life from his birth in the aftermath of the Cuban Missile Crisis, his stumble through middle school, his experiences growing up in his large family, and his question if God exists and if life is worth living. He sees his life as a dead letter, one without purpose or direction. But following the advice of his brother Daniel, Martino resurrects himself and becomes a devoted teacher. Offering a glimpse into the mind of an incurable poet with an indomitable spirit, Resurrecting a Dead Letter weaves elements of faith, science, and their conflicts into a narrative where they become the indispensable tools in the will to live.

My name is Dale Tunnell and I spent over 41 years as a criminal investigator and law enforcement professional. I had years and years of specialized training and I earned a Ph.D. in psychology. I became an international expert in voice analysis research in criminal investigations and correctional environments, and I developed a sophisticated analytical system that incorporated handwriting comparison, psycholinguistics, psychiatry and acoustical voice analysis called S.H.I.E.L.D. Analysis. After spending nearly 16 years studying this American legend by reading what everyone else thought they knew, I decided I was tired of going down rabbit trails and re-examining anecdotal stories I knew in my gut were exaggerated and untrue. I concluded, never search for the truth; search for the lies instead. When I finally changed my approach and returned to scientific methods, good old-fashioned gumshoe work, and the CSI-type procedures I developed, the truth of William H. Bonney, alias Billy the kid, finally emerged. If you want a thrill of discovery, never see the world the same way once you've read this book. Or even if you just want to be consumed with curiosity, then this is the most important book you'll read all year! This is no ordinary historic crime mystery, because I unravel the past with new analytical methods you have never seen or heard of before! No historians have been spared in creating this book. In fact, I have taken a zero-tolerance policy on nostalgic reflections from the past while writing this book. We have even exhumed graves to uncover new facts to get the truth for you. What would it be like to discover that everything you learned about the past was a lie? You will discover exactly how to get the TRUTH! And why it's even more mysterious than fiction. You will discover exactly why the BEST murder mysteries are not fiction. If you are into psychology, you will discover the mental traits of the real William H. Bonney and how they made him into a resilient killer. If technology is your thing, you will discover how I utilized CSI-type methods to reveal information historians tried to keep hidden. If you are a western legends fan, you will discover a full new comprehension of the landscape and environment in which these characters thrived. You will discover anatomical, psychiatric, and psychological traits to positively distinguish Billy the Kid from others who claimed his identity. Discover why Dr. Dale Tunnell has become a modern "language inquisitor" with a computer and a magnifying glass. In this book, I resurrect in thought not a folk hero, but the authentic William H. Bonney, alias Billy the Kid, and unmask an impostor who claimed to be him.

Resurrecting the Death of God

Considers the legacy and future of radical theology. In 1966, an infamous Time magazine cover asked “Is God Dead?” and brought the ideas of theologians William Hamilton and Thomas J. J. Altizer to the wider public. In the years that followed, both men suffered professionally and there was no notable increase to the small number of thinkers considered death of God theologians. Meanwhile, Christian fundamentalism staged a striking comeback in the United States. Yet, death of God, or radical, theology has had an ongoing influence on contemporary theology and philosophy. Contributors to this book explore the origins, influence, and legacy of radical theology and go on to take it in new directions. In a time when fundamentalism is the greatest religious temptation, this volume makes the case for the necessity of resurrecting the death of God. “Resurrecting the Death of God shows why Altizer continues to ride the stream of contemporary conversations in academic theology and continental philosophy without ever losing his luster.” — Carl A. Raschke, author of Postmodernism and the Revolution in Religious Theory: Toward a Semiotics of the Event

It is possible for an act to wrongfully harm a person, even if the act takes place after the person is dead. David Boonin defends this view in Dead Wrong and explains the puzzle of posthumous harm. In doing so, he makes three central claims. First, that it is possible for an act to wrongfullyharm a person while they are alive even if the act has no effect on that person's conscious experiences. Second, that if this is so, then frustrating a person's desires is one way to wrongfully harm a person. And third, that it is possible for an act to wrongfully harm a person even if the act takesplace after the person is dead. Over the course of the book, Boonin introduces the significance of posthumous harm, deals with each of his three main claims in turn, responds to the objections that might be raised against the book's thesis, and examines some of the ethical implications for issuessuch as posthumous organ and gamete removal, posthumous publication of private documents, damage to graves and corpses, and posthumous punishment and restitution.

A guide for fans of pop culture on pursuing their first entrepreneurial venture in business, philanthropy, or the arts and turning fandom into income. “Pop culture is a very broad realm and approaching the subject of entrepreneurship within this area could be overwhelming. I really appreciate the way author Neil A. Cohen approached this subject. By choosing just one pop culture phenom to analyze, as he did with The Walking Dead, he provides a really well-crafted narrative that can be applied to any Fantrepreneurial tract.” —Lance Fensterman, President of ReedPOP Global, world’s largest pop culture event company “Fandom is a complex subject to cover, and like anything complicated in life, there are nuances. I love that you are writing about fantrepreneurs. I am fascinated by it. I can’t wait to read it and I am proud to be a small part of it.”—Jay Bonansinga, Author, The Walking Dead Woodbury series For anyone who ever wanted to be more than just a fan, Business is Dead offers easy-to-follow pathways for first-time entrepreneurs looking to start a fan-focused venture. Here you will find funny, inspirational stories of turning passion into action and creating a new form of start-up—the FANtrepreneur. Neil A. Cohen blends his experience and insight from thirty years’ experience as an MBA specializing in corporate growth, with his own personal experiences as an entrepreneur, learning the intricacies of the fandom-driven marketplace. At the book’s core is the author’s experience of launching his first entrepreneurial venture. Sparked by his fandom of The Walking Dead, he formed an LLC to promote and sell his own zombie trilogy. Along the way, he has met with other authors, artists, philanthropists, and business owners who were driven by their fandom—each forging their own economic path and turning their passion into action.

Japan today is haunted by the ghosts its spectacular modernity has generated. Deep anxieties about the potential loss of national identity and continuity disturb many in Japan, despite widespread insistence that it has remained culturally intact. In this provocative conjoining of ethnography, history, and cultural criticism, Marilyn Ivy discloses these anxieties—and the attempts to contain them—as she tracks what she calls the vanishing: marginalized events, sites, and cultural practices suspended at moments of impending disappearance. Ivy shows how a fascination with cultural margins accompanied the emergence of Japan as a modern nation-state. This fascination culminated in the early twentieth-century establishment of Japanese folklore studies and its attempts to record the spectral, sometimes violent, narratives of those margins. She then traces the obsession with the vanishing through a range of contemporary reconfigurations: efforts by remote communities to promote themselves as nostalgic sites of authenticity, storytelling practices as signs of premodern presence, mass travel campaigns, recallings of the dead by blind mediums, and itinerant, kabuki-inspired populist theater.

This fifth volume in the Hisspania Judaica series focuses, for the most part, on the conversos of 17th century Majorca ? the so- called Chuetas, a phenomenon without parallel in all Spain. This study is based on a wealth of archival material from the records of the Inquisition in Spain and elsewhere including nearly one hundred complete Procesos (trial records) of 1677-1691. These offer the historian a uniquely valuable source of prime material.

“You have a very lovely little girl,” breathed the voice on the phone. And just like that, Susan Young is drawn into a living nightmare. A stranger has kidnapped Sue’s daughter, Veda. But he doesn’t want her money, only her suffering–and he will kill Veda if Sue doesn’t follow his every command. With detailed instructions, the faceless abductor leads Sue into a blinding snowstorm on the longest night of the year, to a place she has not traveled to since childhood. The voice on the other end of the line somehow knows Sue’s deepest, most chilling secret–an ominous incident from her past, buried long ago... Across the loneliest back roads of Massachusetts, in the black expanse of a New England winter, Sue is forced to confront her most awful fears as she is met at each step by ever increasing horrors created by a monster who is surely something less than human. In the hope of saving her daughter from a kidnapper whose origin seems darker than anything she could ever have imagined, Sue will discover just how much trauma and fright the human body is capable of absorbing. Set over the course of a single night, Chasing the Dead is a fast-paced, ferociously tense supernatural thriller. With the skill of masters like Dean Koontz and David Morrell, Joe Schreiber has created a tableau of shock and horror, death and destruction, that will draw you in and never let you go.

Nahum Sarna's distinctive and original scholarship has taken in a wide range of subject areas from work on Genesis and the Psalms to his Jewish Bible commentary and the English translation of the Ketuvim. At first Assistant Professor of Bible at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in the 1950s, he was Dora Golding Professor of Bible at Brandeis University from 1965 to his retirement. This collection of 22 essays reflects Professor Sarna's breadth of interests, with contributions from the late Gershon Cohen on the Hebrew Crusade Chronicle and the Ashkenazic tradition; Judah Goldin on Reuben; Moshe Greenberg and Jonas Greenfield on the work of the Jewish Publication Society's Ketuvim translators; and Shemaryahu Talmon on fragments of a Psalms scroll from Masada.

The only book you’ll ever need to read about Christianity. This remarkable book provides a critical overview of Christian beliefs and the evidence for them. Where did these beliefs come from? Are there good reasons to believe Christianity is true? Bill Zuersher clearly explains each of Christianity’s major beliefs. He then proceeds to demonstrate significant difficulties with each of them. The book tackles these beliefs in a logical order, beginning with the problems at the root of virtually all religions, suffering and death, and culminating in their supposed resolution through Jesus. Mr. Zuersher also examines the evidence for Christianity, namely religious writings and the historical fact of the early Jesus movement. He makes the case that this evidence does not support the religion’s claims and he provides naturalistic alternative explanations for how its core beliefs arose. In these pages we see the coalescence of Jewish and Zoroastrian religious ideas with those of Greek philosophy and mystery cults, to form the belief system we recognize as Christianity today. The result, Mr. Zuersher argues, is not revealed truth, but rather a human patchwork which contains unwarranted assumptions and logical flaws, all founded upon questionable evidence. Entertaining throughout, it is must-reading for skeptics, apologists, and anyone interested the world’s largest religion or the culture wars behind today’s politics — an invaluable resource for students and teachers, writers and debaters.

Could extinct species, like mammoths and passenger pigeons, be brought back to life? The science says yes. In How to Clone a Mammoth, Beth Shapiro, evolutionary biologist and pioneer in "ancient DNA" research, walks readers through the astonishing and controversial process of de-extinction. From deciding which species should be restored, to sequencing their genomes, to anticipating how revived populations might be overseen in the wild, Shapiro vividly explores the extraordinary cutting-edge science that is being used--today--to resurrect the past. Journeying to far-flung Siberian locales in search of ice age bones and delving into her own research--as well as those of fellow experts such as Svante Paabo, George Church, and Craig Venter--Shapiro considers de-extinction's practical benefits and ethical challenges. Would de-extinction change the way we live? Is this really cloning? What are the costs and risks? And what is the ultimate goal? Using DNA collected from remains as a genetic blueprint, scientists aim to engineer extinct traits--traits that evolved by natural selection over thousands of years--into living organisms. But rather than viewing de-extinction as a way to restore one particular species, Shapiro argues that the overarching goal should be the revitalization and stabilization of contemporary ecosystems. For example, elephants with genes modified to express mammoth traits could expand into the Arctic, re-establishing lost productivity to the tundra ecosystem. Looking at the very real and compelling science behind an idea once seen as science fiction, How to Clone a Mammoth demonstrates how de-extinction will redefine conservation's future.

Hermeneutics is the work of Hermes, the Greek demigod, a messenger from the gods and from the dead. Simon Perry sets out to explore the contemporary face of Hermes through a reading of Jesus' parable of the rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31). This parable has one distinguishing feature that marks it out from other ancient stories following the same basic storyline: that a visitor from the dead is not granted leave to return with a message to the land of the living. In order for Scripture to be heard, Hermes is not necessary. Where does this leave the role of hermeneutics? Perry looks to philosophers, ethicists, and theologians for an answer.
