Our instinct is to rally to the aid of someone in need, but we are often stopped by the reality of our own inabilities and fears. We may back away because of two important questions: Will I know what to say or do? and How can I actually help? Lynda Elliott teaches readers how to help others when the inevitable flashpoints explode in their lives-and how to do it without catching the emotional shrapnel. How can we help people through the crises of life without getting hurt ourselves? From her years as a social worker, Elliott teaches two absolutes: First, what readers need to know about helping people who are angry, depressed, fearful, grieving, betrayed, tempted, guilty, abused, bitter, sick, discouraged, or simply stuck somehow in life; and second, how readers can take care of themselves while helping others through some of life's toughest times. How Can I Help? encourages counselors, church leaders, and anyone with a hurting neighbor or friend. Its thought-provoking questions and recommended Scriptures for additional study make it an ideal resource for individuals and small groups.

In 1787, Benjamin Rush cautioned that public punishments were dangerous to the social and legal authority of the new nation. For Rush, irrepressible human sentiments all but guaranteed that public punishments would turn spectators against the institutions responsible for the punishments. Although public executions of criminals ended early in the 19th century, debate over the morality of capital punishment has continued to this day. In this unique and fascinating glimpse into public reactions to prominent executions, from colonial times to the 1990s, Kristin Boudreau focuses on the central role of populist, often ephemeral literary forms in shaping attitudes toward capital punishment. Surveying popular poems, ballads, plays, and novels, she shows that, at key times of social unrest in American history, many Americans have felt excluded by the political and legal processes, and have turned instead to inexpensive literary forms of expression in an attempt to change the course of history. Among the significant capital cases that the author discusses are: the Haymarket anarchist trial of 1886; the lynching of Leo Frank in 1914; the murder of Emmett Till in 1955 and its effects on the Civil Rights movement; Norman Mailer's treatment of the Gary Gilmore case in the 1979 novel, The Executioner's Song; and the 1998 execution of Karla Faye Tucker, a convicted murderer who became a born-again Christian on death row. In the concluding chapter, Boudreau examines contemporary writers, musicians, actors, and other artists who are using their artistic media to influence official policies of states that permit capital punishment. By examining these neglected texts, Boudreau brings to light a compelling story about ordinary Americans fighting an entrenched legal system at times of great national crisis.

'Folie a deux' is a phenomenon in which two or more individuals, who have a similar delusion or fantasy that remains latent until they meet, together commit crime inspired by this shared delusion or fantasy. The macabre partners in this book share this little-understood condition. Perverse personalities, brooding minds and black heats, they fantasise about murder most foul, sometimes for decades. They are unable to carry their warped delusions into reality and the world is safe - unitl they meet another such evil mind and the results are shocking.
