Nothing is ordinary in the small town of Passion, especially the love.

Nothing is ordinary in the small town of Passion, especially the love. Wild, rebellious, and perpetually in trouble, Justin Davis was labeled the town troublemaker and an embarrassment to his father, the chief of police in the small town of Passion. When Justin was framed for a crime he didn't commit, he impulsively left the town he'd called home, vowing never to return. For six years Beth Healy pined after Justin, the boy next door who she'd come to think of as her friend, and had wanted for a lover. Now an officer of the law, Beth is shocked when her pursuit of a speeding car leads her to the one man she's been longing to find—Justin Davis—and after all these years, he's finally come home. Despite the sizzling attraction, Beth's feelings of hurt and betrayal linger and acceptance and forgiveness don't come easy. Justin soon discovers that begging for mercy and allowing Beth time to grow to love him again might be the only way to win her back. Then an enemy of Justin's begins to threaten his life, forcing Beth to make a choice. Will she be able to put the past behind her and trust in the man that Justin is now? Welcome to the town of Passion.

Is mercy more important than justice? Since antiquity, mercy has been regarded as a virtue. Yet by the end of the eighteenth century, mercy had been exiled from political life. In this book, Malcolm Bull analyses and challenges the Enlightenment’s rejection of mercy. Political realism, Bull argues, demands recognition of the foundational role of mercy in society. If we are vulnerable to harm from others, we are in need of their mercy. By restoring the primacy of mercy over justice, we may constrain the powerful and release the agency of the powerless. An important contribution to political philosophy from an inventive thinker, On Mercy makes a persuasive case for returning this neglected virtue to the heart of political thought.
Qualities of Mercy deals with the history of mercy, the remittance of punishments in the criminal law.
Author: Carolyn Strange
Publisher: UBC Press
Qualities of Mercy deals with the history of mercy, the remittance of punishments in the criminal law. The writers probe the discretionary use of power and inquire how it has been exercised to spare convicted criminals from the full might of the law. Drawing on the history of England, Canada, and Australia in periods when both capital and corporal punishment were still practised, they show that contrary to common assumptions the past was not a time of unmitigated terror and they ask what inspired restraint in punishment. They conclude that the ability to decide who lived and died -- through the exercise or denial of mercy -- reinforced the power structure.

'This is a book for everyone concerned about the unfortunate state of our existing penal practices': Tapio Lappi-Seppälä. The author argues that rediscovering mercy would lead to a more humane and purposeful form of criminal justice.

Restorative justice has attracted increasing support world-wide, but it sits uncomfortably alongside entrenched attitudes towards punishment and retribution. Because it does not involve 'locking-up people and throwing away the key' it is not favoured reading for risk-averse politicians or the media. There are also vested interests at play which can be traced back to when the state first sought to enhance its coffers and cast victims to the sidelines. As a result, the concept of 'mercy' has become largely lost, distorting relationships between victims, offenders and communities. 'This is a book for everyone concerned about the unfortunate state of our existing penal practices': Tapio Lappi-Seppala. The author argues that rediscovering mercy would lead to a more humane and purposeful form of criminal justice. His book looks at the characteristics of mercy and explains how it has become confused with mitigation and leniency. He goes on to deconstruct and analyze current theories and make proposals for reform. Long-overdue reform of contemporary criminal justice necessitates, as the author writes, a 'paradigm-shift' requiring inspired leadership and a consensus to 'do justice better' between policy-makers, academics, jurists, professionals and opinion-formers. The book examines the implications and challenges of such a journey and its value in helping to shape a modern, progressive, enlightened and civilised society. Identifies a lost ingredient of criminal justice: shows where criminal justice 'went wrong' and why it needs to recover and change direction; contains important new proposals. Based on a lifetime's experience of prisons and dealing with prisoners of all kinds in the UK and abroad. David J Cornwell has extensive experience of prisons and is an expert on restorative justice. His books include Criminal Punishment and Restorative Justice (2006) and the more recently acclaimed Civilising Criminal Justice (2013) (as editor: with John Blad and Martin Wright). Tapio Lappi-Seppala is Director General of the National Research Institute of Legal Policy and former senior legislative adviser on criminal law in Finland's Ministry of Justice."

Encounter God's mercy more profoundly. Now Is the Time for Mercy is a concise guide to understanding the Divine Mercy message and devotion, the importance of private revelation, and how to be an apostle of mercy like St. Faustina. The global war on terror. The breakdown of the family. Continuing economic uncertainty. Natural disasters. Secularism and the fall out from the abuse crisis in the Church. If ever there was a need for Divine Mercy, the time is certainly now! Human sinfulness has come close to destroying our world, but we have not been abandoned by our Heavenly Father. He has given us the solution to our brokenness in The Divine Mercy. In this revised classic, Fr. Kosicki writes, "There is a special urgency in this message. Repeatedly, our Lord stressed to St. Faustina that now is the day of mercy before the coming day of judgment."
