Twelve-year-old Dominique fails to complete a deadly serious ritual and is banished from his place with the Estorian people, a tribe of nomadic storytellers. He must travel alone to a distant cave where, it is believed, he will find the voice he has always longed for. His quest takes him to far-off lands where he must do battle with a mighty river serpent, outwit pungent yagabonos, and survive capture by a group of powerful leranons. Inspired by the creatures and legends of a variety of mythologies, Nikki Tate has created a world where there is no greater honor -- and no greater challenge -- than being a magnificent storyteller. The first novel in the "Estorian Chronicles" trilogy, Cave of Departure introduces a feisty young word warrior and his female counterpart, Amana, the Campriano, whose relentless search for the truth is destined to change Dominique's life forever.
The Cave of John the Baptist: The First Archaeological Evidence of the Historical Reality of the Gospel Storyby Shimon Gibson
The first archaeological evidence of the historical reality of the Gospel story. From a historical point of view, the uniqueness of this cave is that it contains archaeological evidence that comes to us from the very time of the personalities and events described in the Gospels. For here is the largest ritual bathing pool ever found in the Jerusalem area, and found in the village where John the Baptist was born, showing unmistakable signs of ritual use in the first century AD. Also in the cave is the earliest ever Christian art, depicting John the Baptist as well as the three crosses of the crucifixion. By using the forensic techniques available to the modern archaeologist, Gibson and his international team have been able to draw information from the drawings, pottery, coins, bones, remains of ritual fire and pieces of cloth found in the cave and match these up with the contemporary literary sources. This is a unique opportunity to build up a picture of the very first Christians, how they lived and even what they believed. As Gibson writes:"By fitting together the new archaeological facts with the historical information available (and sometimes buried) in scholarly literature, I believe I am able to throw an amazing amount of light on the personality and mission of John the Baptist. Who was he? Where did he come from? What were his beliefs and what was the baptism all about?" From the Hardcover edition.

Others, nanoengineered for near-immortality, explore the far reaches of interstellar space in gargantuan macrolife mobiles.An earth-like human society endures on the environmentally volatile planet of Tau Ceti IV--a rigid community of the faithful that has declared evil the science that caused the homeworld's destruction.

For an emissary, Voss Rhazes, has arrived from one of old Earth's journeying mobiles--the first off-planet human visitor ever to Tau Ceti--bearing remarkable hated technology that could shred the fragile emotional fabric of a family...and bring devastating chaos to their world.

With their mother in the hospital and their father's whereabouts unknown, two boys take to the streets of New York to escape being sent to a children's shelter.

'Simmons and Griffiths provide a well thought-out introduction to the subject area of standard CBT. This text should be on the shelves of trainee cognitive behavioural psychotherapists for a considerable time to come' - Dr Alec Grant, University of Brighton This practical guide to cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) will interest a wide range of professionals and trainees across health and social care.

The book covers the fundamentals of practicing CBT such as: - the CBT model and how to explain it to clients - CBT assessment and formulation - cognitive and behavioural interventions Packed full of practical features like exercises, case dialogue and therapy materials, the book also covers a range of extra topics including: - Assessing referrals for suitability - Working with motivational issues - Getting the most out of supervision. - Managing therapeutic endings. Given the abundance of CBT texts available and the host of theoretical and conflicting positions that have arisen, it can be difficult for trainees to get to grips with the practical skills necessary to carry out CBT effectively. The book addresses this by equipping the CBT therapist with the essential nuts and bolts to practice CBT with confidence. Dr Jane Simmons and Dr Rachel Griffiths are practising NHS Adult Mental Health Clinical Psychologists.
