By Roane Swindon, 2012/02/24 Book Review: Fearlessly Single by Nathi Mhlaba Society is bent on emphasizing the importance of relationships and marriage, so how can a single Christian woman cope in such a world? Author Nathi Mhlaba has been through all of this, and it seems that she has the answers. In her book Fearlessly Single: Diary of a Single Christian Woman, she explores the fact that women today are obsessed with getting into relationships and finding someone to marry. She also considers how difficult it is for a religious Christian woman to find an equally religious Christian man to marry. Through anecdotes, Mhlaba explores how she went wrong in her own relationships, and her experience has given her the insight to advise other single Christian women about how they can resurrect their relationships with God. She postulates that it is more important for a single woman to discover themselves - be happy in themselves, on their own - and to become closer to God, and then the perfect relationship will follow. Mhlaba has a sincere passion for her religion and for her newfound cause in life: to spread the word of God and encourage single women through the passages of her book, which are certain to be consoling to many of the South African women who continuously find themselves in bad relationships or feel without direction if they are alone. She is at pains to urge Christian women to be comfortable in the now and to remember that God has a plan for everyone. They just need to have faith, and remember that being single is an opportunity for them to be themselves and a blessing from God.

As I write this, it is 2010. So far we have had quite a dramatic decade: 9/11, the invasion of Iraq, George Bush gets elected (Twice!), the IPod, the Xbox, Facebook, Twitter, and a pope who doesn’t even look at the camera, the Beijing Olympics (Wasn’t that a show?!), the earthquake in Haiti and Chile, and a black man becomes president of the USA, and they used to say pigs would fly when a black man became president, and sure enough swine flu! It’s a lot different compared to 10 years ago. The world and technology is changing at such a fast rate, but I feel us people are really not mentally moving along through with the times though.

"Bad Judgment is a quintessential fall-from-grace story about a man from humble beginnings who rose to the top of the legal profession, only to be removed from the bench because of his bad judgment, the intolerant attitudes of the elite bar, and political necessity. What did Leo Landreville really do? And why were some of the most famous lawyers and politicians in Canada in the 1960s determined to end his judicial career?" "Landreville was appointed one of Her Majesty's justices in 1956. After moving from Sudbury to Toronto to take up his job at Osgoode Hall, he and his wife moved into the newly built and very fashionable Benvenuto Place and joined the best clubs. But his elevated status was to be short-lived. As it turned out, he had accepted a stock option from Northern Ontario Natural Gas when NONG obtained the gas franchise in Sudbury and he was the mayor. Soon after settling into his chambers at Osgoode Hall, he exercised the option and pocketed $117,000, without having laid out a cent." "Landreville was not the only politician to benefit from his dealings with NONG. The 'Gas Scandal,' as it was called, brought an early end to the careers of three provincial Conservative cabinet ministers and bruised the reputation of the Liberal leader, another beneficiary. Landreville was charged with municipal corruption and conspiracy, but he managed to beat the accusations. When the Law Society of Upper Canada convened a special committee, found the judge guilty of misconduct, and called upon the minister of justice to have him removed, the Landreville affair began. The character assassination of Landreville soon became a national sport, and the judge found himself under investigation by a royal commission. A joint parliamentary committee then recommended that Landreville be removed from the bench. Instead, he resigned in disgrace." "Bad Judgment is a probing account of judicial independence and of what should be done when the conduct of judges is brought into question. A veritable 'Who's Who' of Canadian legal and political history, it provides an inside look at the workings of the judiciary, the Law Society of Upper Canada, and the Ontario and federal governments in their attempts to deal with a growing scandal that threatened to bring the administration of justice in Canada into disrepute."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
