In its original context, I Timothy chapter 3 is directed towards overseers (or elders) and deacons in the church. This chapter includes a very detailed list of the requirements and character traits that should be present in those who seek to serve in God's house. As believers and followers of Jesus Christ, each one of us should always strive to live a life that is "Above Reproach," because it is Jesus Christ that we are representing. Therefore, this passage of scripture becomes a great measuring tool for all believers to monitor the spiritual growth in their lives. I believe this was the intent of Paul's instructions: ."I am writing you these instructions so that, if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God's household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth." I Timothy 3:14-15 This study of I Timothy 3 will help you examine each one of these attributes more deeply and challenge you to apply them to your own lives as you strive to be like Christ.

The #1 international-bestselling tale of greed, violence, and corporate power from the master of Scandinavian noir: “One of his best” (The Times, London). After killing a man in the line of duty, Inspector Kurt Wallander finds himself deep in a personal and professional crisis; during more than a year of sick leave, he turns to drink and vice to quiet his lingering demons. Once he pulls himself together, he vows to quit the Ystad police force for good—just before a friend who had asked Wallander to look into the death of his father winds up dead himself, shot three times. Far from leaving police work behind, Wallander instead must investigate a formidable suspect: a powerful business tycoon at the helm of a multinational company engaged in extralegal activities. Ann-Britt Höglund, the department’s first female detective, proves to be Wallander’s best ally as he tries to pierce the smiling façade of the suspicious mogul. But just as he comes close to uncovering the truth, Wallander finds his own life being threatened. In this “exquisitely plotted” thriller, Henning Mankell’s mastery of the modern police procedural—which has earned him legions of fans worldwide and inspired the BBC show Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh—is on vivid display (Publishers Weekly). “This is crime fiction of the highest order.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review “Compelling . . . Skillfully plotted and suspenseful. . . . A thriller for the thinking reader.” —The Dallas Morning News “Mankell’s novels are a joy.” —USA Today “Absorbing. . . . In the masterly manner of P.D. James, Mankell projects his hero's brooding thoughts onto nature itself.” —The New York Times “Wallander is a loveable gumshoe. . . . He is one of the most credible creations in contemporary crime fiction.” —The Guardian

In the early 1980's, a violent kidnapping leaves several people dead on the C&O Canal Towpath near Georgetown, Washington, D.C. Several days later, a parachutist is found dead, hanging upside down from a tree in the Virginia countryside. The two events seem unrelated, especially to Will MacKenzie, the man who discovers the dead parachutist while walking his dog. MacKenzie, a Viet Nam veteran, is familiar with parachutes, but is puzzled by the color of the parachute as well as the color of the parachutists clothing: all colors are black and the face of the dead man is covered in black camouflage. Additional black parachutes are found by his dog nearby, but these are attached to heavy, black duffle bags. A wrapped packet of hundred dollar bills is partially exposed, next to a small rip in one of the bags. This discovery could change his life, as he is struggling to recover from alcoholism and depression, problems that have caused him to lose his job, his family, and his friends. Faced with a choice of reporting his gruesome find to the authorities, or keeping the bags that may hold a great deal of money, MacKenzie takes the duffle bags to his mountain cabin to examine their contents without being disturbed. He is unaware that his lucky find is part of a large ransom payment. MacKenzies decision to keep the moneybags triggers a trail of violence, as killers from the Mafia, a D.C. drug gang, and a Colombian Drug Cartel, form an unholy alliance to search for the missing ransom. The cast of characters includes the veteran who is trying to rebuild his life, and a woman of wealth, privilege, and power, who find each other as they attempt to escape the tentacles of a billion dollar Drug Empire. A corrupt deputy sheriff and a philanthropist with a secret stand in their way.

Ellie s escape from innocence to costly awareness leads her to the realization that love, no matter how mature, can have a dreadful price. A woman finally discovers what she wants and what it costs.
