A groundbreaking examination of a little-known but defining episode in early modern Jewish history A refugee crisis of huge proportions erupted as a result of the mid-seventeenth-century wars in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Tens of thousands of Jews fled their homes, or were captured and trafficked across Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. Rescue the Surviving Souls is the first book to examine this horrific moment of displacement and flight, and to assess its social, economic, religious, cultural, and psychological consequences. Drawing on a wealth of primary sources in twelve languages, Adam Teller traces the entire course of the crisis, shedding fresh light on the refugee experience and the various relief strategies developed by the major Jewish centers of the day. Teller pays particular attention to those thousands of Jews sent for sale on the slave markets of Istanbul and the extensive transregional Jewish economic network that coalesced to ransom them. He also explores how Jewish communities rallied to support the refugees in central and western Europe, as well as in Poland-Lithuania, doing everything possible to help them overcome their traumatic experiences and rebuild their lives. Rescue the Surviving Souls offers an intimate study of an international refugee crisis, from outbreak to resolution, that is profoundly relevant today.

The ups and downs of living courageously with multiple sclerosis is captured through personal journal entries while searching for the right formulas. Progressing from healthy to increasingly dependent, this MSer struggles along. Charmaines honest and candid memoir chronicles the twenty-two-year path of her disease and the gifts of family, God, and perseverance. Through journal entries knitted together in brilliance, this memoir radiates daily resilience, detailed reason, and definite redemption. The words on these pages are a shining example of success amid suffering, and display a beauty far beyond brokenness. Writing with humor and wit, Ms. Zankowicz has created a masterpiece. Aime Wren BA Eng. Lit. Profound, honest, heart wrenching, brimming with joy and life; full of family values, not preachy, inspirational gratitude. Shirley Buchanan LL.B Charmaine Zankowicz shares her journey from infancy to maturity in both her faith and her struggle with MS. Along the way she proves that being tested in the furnace of affliction (Isa. 48:10) is a sure fire way to prove what you are actually capable of. It is also an example to others of how to follow in that tradition. Charmaine has used stories from the past along with insight from the present to illustrate what real hope looks like. Her story inspired the painting I did for the cover of this book Charmaine; always reaching beyond her grasp, now pulling others along behind her out of the darkness into the light. Adversity can be a wedge that drives us from God and hope or a magnet that draws us towards God and hope. Charmaines book is an encouragement to new Christians and especially to anyone who is struggling with chronic pain whether it is MS or any other physical or emotional difficulty. The "Furnace of Affliction" has helped Charmaine push out the edges of the envelope and embrace life outside her comfort zone she is real and she is inspirational read and reach for the light! Susan Rumford B.A., M.A. Th:S.C.P. (Counsellor / Psychotherapist) The truth of what goes on in the mind, body and soul of a woman battling MS is shared in this book. It's not for the faint of heart. It will multiply your faith, increase your resolve; and if your belief is weak, don't worry - you can piggyback on Charmaine's. - Gunner

Rescue For The Dead

Author : Jeffrey A. Trumbower
ISBN : 0198032323
Genre : Religion
File Size : 52.42 MB

Christianity is a religion of salvation in which believers have always anticipated post-mortem bliss for the faithful and non-salvation for others. Here, Trumbower examines how and why death came to be perceived as such a firm boundary of salvation. Analyzing exceptions to this principle from ancient Christianity, he finds that the principle itself was slow to develop and not universally accepted in the Christian movement's first four hundred years. In fact, only in the West was this principle definitively articulated, due in large part to the work and influence of Augustine.

Excerpt: "A lady and her husband were hiking in the desert when a little, white something came running toward them at top speed. The blur turned out to be a Boxer with coyotes close on his tail. Rocky had been stray for at least a month before being taken into rescue, probably surviving by picking oranges from nearby orchards and then peeling them to enjoy the fruits of his labor (we have seen his talent with our own eyes). As a rescue volunteer, I was asked to foster Rocky, but I did not. I adopted him! Dubbed The Little Ambassador, Rocky turned out to be the perfect big brother for all foster dogs who passed through our home, nurturing them with love, patience, and understanding." -"Judy Bailey" Read more about Rocky and many other amazing Boxers inside!

"Second Line Rescue chronicles the brave and creative acts through which Gulf Coast people rescued their neighbors during the chaotic aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Ordinary citizens joined in with whatever resources they had. Unlike many of the official responders, vernacular rescuers found ways around the paralysis. They were able to dispel unfounded fears produced by erroneous or questionable reporting. The essays, personal narratives, media reports, and field studies presented here all have to do with effective and often ingenious answers that emerged from the people themselves. The first part of the collection deals with Gulf Coast rescuers from outside stricken communities: those who, safe in their own homes and neighborhoods, marshaled their resources to help their fellow citizens. The second part features the words of hurricane survivors displaced from New Orleans and other Gulf Coast communities to Houston, Texas. In many cases, the "victims" themselves were the first responders, rescuing family, friends, and strangers. All of the stories, whether from the "outside" or "inside" responders, reveal a shared history of close-knit community bonds, survival skills sharpened by hard times, and what went right in the aftermath of Katrina and Rita--in spite of all that went so wrong"--

Physiological constraints confine our bodies to less than one-fifth of the earth's surface. Beyond that fraction lie the extremes. What happens when we go to them? Dr. Kenneth Kamler has spent years observing exactly what happens. A vice president of the legendary Explorers Club, he has climbed, dived, sledded, floated, and trekked through some of the most treacherous and remote regions in the world. A consultant for NASA, Yale University, and the National Geographic Society, he has explored undersea caves, crossed the frozen Antarctic wastelands, and stitched a boy's hand back together while kneeling in knee-deep Amazonian mud. He was the only doctor on Everest during the tragic expedition documented in Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air and helped treat its survivors. Kamler has devoted his life to investigating how our bodies respond to "environmental insults"-a nice way of saying the things that can kill us-and watched while some succumbed to them and others, sometimes miraculously, overcome them. Words like "extreme" and "survival" have lost some of their value from overuse and media hype. By showing us what happens when life itself is at stake, and the body's capacities put to their greatest test, this book reminds us what they truly mean. Divided into six sections-jungle, open sea, desert, underwater, high altitude, and outer space-Surviving the Extremes uses first-hand testimony and documented accounts to illustrate what happens in environments where our instinctive survival strategies must become fully engaged. These stories reveal how infinitely complex are the workings of the human body-and also how heartbreakingly fragile. At the heart of this book is a quest for the source of our will to survive and the haunting question of why some can, and others cannot, summon its awesome and nearly mystical power at their moment of greatest need. Surgeon, explorer, and masterful storyteller, Kamler takes us to the farthest reaches of the earth as well as into the uncharted territory within the human brain. Surviving the Extremes is a scientific nail-biter no reader will forget.
