The coerced displacement of people within the borders of their own countries by armed conflicts, internal strife, and systematic violations of human rights has become a pervasive feature of the post Cold War era. The plight of the displaced poses a challenge that is not only humanitarian but a threat to the security and stability of countries, regions, and, through a chain effect, the international system. This book contains case studies of ten countries that have suffered severe problems of internal displacement: Burundi, Rwanda, Liberia, and the Sudan in Africa; the former Yugoslavia and the Caucasus in Europe; Tajikistan and Sri Lanka in Asia; and Colombia and Peru in the Americas. The contributors are Thomas Greene, Randolph C. Kent, Jennifer McLean, Larry Minear, Liliana Obregón, Amir Pasic, Hiram A. Ruiz, Colin Scott, H.L. Seneviratne, Maria Stavropoulou, and Thomas G. Weiss. Additionally, the contributors and editors offer recommendations for further action.

“Throughout the night I cried to the Lord with tears of brokenness that flooded my pillow, and pleaded with him: “Why have you forsaken me, O Lord? How long do I have to live like this? I can’t take it anymore! I have prayed for so long! Did you forget about me? Please, help me!” These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them. (Isaiah 42:16) “I will not forget you—I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands.” (Isaiah 49:16) “He is my shepherd, and he shall fulfill all my purpose.” (Isaiah 44:28 ESV) “Kady is to be commended for sharing her life with others. Her book, Forsaken to Fulfilled, is well documented with God’s Word and demonstrates how he will help in time of need. When she set her eyes on God’s Word, she found victory, healing, and fulfillment as a woman. In this world, we need more courageous individuals like Kady to stand up and be a voice for the vulnerable and hurting. This book should be read by every couple.” —Pastor C.J.

For the dedicated scientists who man a remote listening post on one of Saturn’s moons, 2088 has been a pretty quiet year. After nearly 130 years of fruitless listening to the silence of the void, the men and women who represent mankind at the edge of the solar system are humanity’s best hope for first contact. None of the specialists on duty could have ever predicted what is racing toward them—or what it means for humanity’s future. Jarrod McKinley and two others are stationed on a listening post orbiting the moon Titan, part of man’s latest effort to make contact with extraterrestrial intelligence. What the Titan base crew is about to experience will shake the foundations of the belief that mankind is alone in the universe. Without warning, a massive energy wave sweeps around Saturn and blasts the post. McKinley and his crew survive the initial blast, but the listening post is severely damaged. As a rescue mission is launched, a strange signal is discovered within the energy wave. Just as things seem under control, an explosion rocks the station; one of the crew is killed, but McKinley and Liza Alvarez jettison in an escape pod. McKinley senses some evil has targeted him and the newly discovered signal. As McKinley and Alvarez escape several attempts on their lives and race from Saturn to Earth, they survive repeated attempts to silence them, and they discover a plot that shakes the search for first contact.

J.D. Barker's Forsaken is a remarkable debut, a gripping tale of suspense in the tradition of Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and John Saul. Truly the birth of a new master in the genre. Bram Stoker Award Nominee - Superior Achievement in a First Novel “Barker’s ambitious debut is aimed squarely at fans of classic horror. Witches, spells, miniature demons, and personal doubt give plenty to latch on to… the plot moves at a brisk pace… a promising start to a planned series.” - Editorial Review, Publisher’s Weekly "A talented writer with a delightfully devious mind!" Jeffery Deaver #1 International Bestselling Author Book One of the Shadow Cove Saga Inspired by Actual Events Excerpt from the Journal of Clayton Stone – 1692 She was examined today without torture at Shadow Cove township on the charge of witchcraft. She said she was wholly innocent of the crime and has never in life renounced God. I watched as they brought her out. A poor, sickly thing, worn by her time behind the walls of her prison. Her bared feet and hands bound in leather, her clothing tattered to that of ruin. Despite such condition, her head was held high, her eyes meeting those of her accusers. She still refuses to provide her name so we remain unable to search baptismal records, nor has her family stepped forward to claim her as their own. We have no reason to believe she is anything but an orphaned child. I find myself unable to look at her directly in the moments preceding her trial. She is watching me though; with eyes of the deepest blue, she is watching me. Thad McAlister, Rise of the Witch When horror author Thad McAlister began his latest novel, a tale rooted in the witch trials of centuries past, the words flowed effortlessly. The story poured forth, filling page after page with the most frightening character ever to crawl from his imagination. It was his greatest work, one that would guarantee him a position among the legends of the craft. But was it really fiction? He inadvertently opened a door, one that would soon jeopardize the lives of his family. She wants to come back. At home, his wife struggles to keep their family alive. Secretly wondering if she caused it all…a deal she made long ago. A deal with the Forsaken.

The Trinity and the Cross, and Why It Matters

"My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?" How should a Christian interpret this passage? What implications does the cross have for the trinitarian theology? Did the Father kill the Son? Theologian Thomas McCall presents a trinitarian reading of Christ's darkest moment--the moment of his prayer to his heavenly Father from the cross. McCall revisits the biblical texts and surveys the various interpretations of Jesus cry, ranging from early church theologians to the Reformation to contemporary theologians. Along the way, he explains the terms of the scholarly debate and clearly marks out what he believes to be the historically orthodox point of view. By approaching the Son's cry to the Father as an event in the life of the Triune God, Forsaken seeks to recover the true poignancy of the orthodox perspective on the cross.

Choose a tribe. Watch your back. And don’t stop running. Filled with thrilling adventure and romance, The Forsaken is praised by EntertainmentWeekly.com as “a fast-paced novel [that] you’ll get sucked into. You just can’t seem to put [it] down.” As an obedient orphan of the U.N.A. (the super-country that was once Mexico, the US, and Canada), Alenna learned at an early age to blend in and be quiet—having your parents taken by the police will do that to a girl. But Alenna can’t help standing out when she fails a test that all sixteen-year-olds have to take: The test says she has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to the wheel, an island where all would-be criminals end up. The life expectancy of prisoners on the wheel is just two years, but with dirty, violent, and chaotic conditions, the time seems a lot longer as Alenna is forced to deal with civil wars for land ownership and machines that snatch kids out of their makeshift homes. Desperate, she and a charismatic warrior named Liam concoct a potentially fatal plan to flee the island. Survival may seem impossible, but Alenna is determined to achieve it anyway.
