D.D. Murphry has a way with words—or is it that words have their way with him? Work the clues alongside this unlikely sleuth to reveal an underground cabal of letters, a conspiracy of meaning, right below the surface of the everyday world.
Murphry is both hero and villain, an unforgettable personality who will have you cringing while you laugh and rooting for his every misguided plan. This is a clever tale told with a dexterity that allows for a gritty, noir feel, insight into the frailty of the human mind and the ability to see the absurdity in it all.
Teachers have a challenging and often difficult job. They need inspiration. Christian inspiration! You're God's Gift to Teachers provides biblical encouragement to teachers. Uniquely, this book is targeted directly at teacher issues, with passages organized in 50 topics from A-Z. While the focus is on the bible verse, the author writes a specific context for teachers for each passage. This helps the reader have a greater understanding of the application, and therefore appeals to not only the "strong Christian" but also the newer Christian or even someone simply "interested" in a Christian perspective.
Topics include Caring, Confidence, Empathy, Faith, Generosity, Helping Hand, Integrity, Laughter, Leadership, Perception, Priorities, Service, Teamwork and many more. A recurring theme is that God has given you the gift of being a teacher. While the teacher is finding encouragement through the passages, they are also to "pay it forward" to their students. A passage on Love from Romans 12:9 states "Don't just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good." Author Marder adds "Loving a student really means never giving up on them and constantly expressing hope. Show them you value the difference between right and wrong, something they can hold onto for their whole life." The topic on Positive Thinking from Philippians 4:8 states "And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." Marder notes, "So now you know - it's not the self help gurus of the 20th century that came up with the power of positive thinking! In fact, Paul speaks to the issue 2000 years ago. In this letter directed to the Christian church in Philippi, it is noteworthy that he is providing this encouragement from jail (on trumped up charges)! The days for teachers are often long and challenging and it would be easy to get down. Keep you mind on the good things in life to keep your spirits up." There are over 170 pages of topics, and teachers have a place to jot notes, thoughts or prayers, that may be prompted by the reading, about or for students or others. This makes this quality hardback book both a workbook and a resource book for now and the future.
Evolve opens with the FDA rejecting a genetic therapy that cures breast cancer and unfolds into a political, philosophical, and scientific drama that will have readers asking questions about a fictional world that are more appropriately asked of the real one. The FDA rejects a new breast cancer therapy and scheming politicians stoke public outrage against the drug’s creators, claiming the drug would only be available to the wealthy and would be used as a weapon of genetic warfare against minorities and the poor. The scientists who created the drug are baffled and deeply depressed by the furor over their life-saving creation and are eventually driven to leave their entire lives’ work, going into hiding from a world hostile to everything in which they believe. Politicians manipulate each other and the public for power, the company which created the drug struggles to maintain its independence from an impending government take-over, and investors and rival companies must choose sides in a political war. Billion dollar budgets, entire industries, individuals who might be saved by drugs that will never exist, and the Presidency are the casualties of the deception, manipulation, power struggles, and fighting of Evolve. In Evolve, actions are shown to have their logical if unintended consequences; people are driven by unrecognized but ever-present incentives; and the way the world works is made apparent in the order that ultimately emerges. Evolve presents the reader with a grandiose vision of the world. Politicians meddle with the economy; regulation is used to protect people from themselves and destroy enemies; scientists scheme to better their own careers while feigning to seek the truth in nature; and business leaders are shown to be geniuses, corrupt, humanitarians, and sleazy opportunists. Readers will come to see slivers of each of the novel’s characters in the people in their own lives. Human evolution, achievement, and the value of freedom are the novel’s core themes. Evolve is Jurassic Park meets Atlas Shrugged with a timely and time narrative.
