Livvy Flynn is a big deal - she's a New York Times-bestselling author whose YA fiction has sold all over the world. She's rich, she's famous, she's gorgeous, and she's full of herself. When she's invited to an A-list writer's conference, she decides to accept so she can have some time to herself. She's on a tight deadline for her next book, and she has no intention of socializing with the other industry people at the conference. And then she hits the detour. Before she knows it, her brand new car is wrecked, she's hurt, and she's tied to a bed in a nondescript shack in the middle of nowhere. A woman and her apparently manic daughter have kidnapped her. And they have no intention of letting her go.

Have you experienced those times in life when you're zooming along on a course bound for your destination when suddenly, CLANK-some outside force beyond your control (be it accident, event, circumstance, or someone else's decision or action) changes your direction? Then off you go down another road, one you wouldn't otherwise have traveled. Maybe you're in the midst of a detour right now. The road is rough. The scenery is strange. The landmarks are unfamiliar. Clark Cothern invites you to travel with him on a few of his detours and discover a renewed sense of purpose. Yes, He is Lord of those smooth, wide interstates in your life. But He is also Lord of the detours.

Already an internet phenomenon, these wise and insightful lessons by popular newspaper columnist and Pulitzer Prize finalist Regina Brett will make you see the possibilities in your life in a whole new way. When Regina Brett turned 50, she wrote a column on the 50 lessons life had taught her. She reflected on all she had learned through becoming a single parent, looking for love in all the wrong places, working on her relationship with God, battling cancer and making peace with a difficult childhood. It became one of the most popular columns ever published in the newspaper, and since then the 50 lessons have been emailed to hundreds of thousands of people. Brett now takes the 50 lessons and expounds on them in essays that are deeply personal. From "Don't take yourself too seriously-Nobody else does" to "Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift," these lessons will strike a chord with anyone who has ever gone through tough times--and haven't we all?

This is a book about the dream that God places within each believer to fulfill His mission in our lives. However, sometimes God interrupts our dream because he knows we need to grow, learn, and mature. During those times, we can focus on God’s glory and our humility. Sion opens his own life to reflect on these themes. Through his years of ministry service, God has taught him about these lessons. God gives His most precious gifts; however, then He leads us to an altar and asks us to lay down everything, including His own fulfillment of the promises He gave to us. Does this sound crazy? It seems counterintuitive, as if it doesn’t make sense. When God is the hero of the story, it never ends in death. In fact, it is quite the opposite. God’s stories always end in resurrection and life. Just as the cross wasn’t the end for our Savior, the death of your dream isn’t the end for you. The death of your dream opens the doorway to something better, more real, and more life-giving.

This book presents a variety of narratives on key elements of academic work, from data analysis, writing practices and engagement with the field. The authors discuss how elements of academic work and life – usually edited out of traditional research papers – can elicit important analytical insight. The book reveals how the unplanned, accidental and even obstructive events that often occur in research life, the ‘detours’, can potentially glean important results. The authors introduce the process of ‘writing-sharing-reading-writing’ as a way to expand the playground of research and inspire a culture in which ‘accountable’ research methodologies involve adventurousness and an element of uncertainty. Written by scholars from a range of different fields, academic levels and geographic locations, this unique book will offer significant insight to those from a range of academic fields.

Dr. Taleshia Chandler gives us a rare, up close and personal look at the journey she took with cancer. Her deep exploration of faith, fashioned on the anvil of suffering, was lived out among people every day. She explains what grace under pressure really is. Read this work and know that you never count God out! He is on your side!” —Dr. Walter S. Thomas, Senior Pastor, New Psalmist Baptist Church

“In ‘A Divine Detour,’ Dr. Taleshia Chandler has identified the elusive secret ingredients of courageous hope and personal resiliency: persisting faith in God. Detailing her own journey from doctorate to diagnosis and beyond, she shows us how an abiding belief that we have an appointment with destiny delivers strength and purpose no matter what the odds. No challenge is insurmountable. A great read!” —Dr. Lance D. Watson, Senior Pastor Saint Paul’s Baptist Church and author of Maximize Your Edge: 15 Steps to Navigate Life’s Challenges “‘A Divine Detour’ is an inspiring recount of Dr. Taleshia Chandler’s journey. Her compelling story illustrates how faith can conquer all. As a physician, I see through her experience just how powerful God is; He is the true healer. It is a must read for anyone facing a challenge in life, as it shows that through God all things are possible. —Dr. Marcus Smith, Attending Physician “In her book, ‘A Divine Detour,’ Dr. Taleshia brings to life the apostle Paul’s writing in 2 Corinthians 3:2-3. Your very lives are the letter that anyone can read by just looking at you. Having received a cancer diagnosis, Dr. Taleshia unashamedly opens up her life to anyone who would read her living epistle. The divine detour she encountered, embraced by faith, which she overcame through the power of her beloved Savior, now affords any cancer patient to come out of the closet of shame, darkness, and despair and into the light of Christ Jesus to embrace their own divine detour with hope and courage!” —Rev. Dr. Ann F. Lightner Fuller, Senior Pastor Mt. Calvary A.M.E. Church “You are so blessed to read the testimony of a powerful woman of God. My daughter, Taleshia Chandler, has stood the test of time and has been given the privilege to share her light and low moments with you. The oil that rests upon her singing has been revealed in this book. May her testimony give you hope and encouragement on your own journey. —Bishop Oscar E. Brown, Senior Pastor, First Mt. Olive F.W.B. Church

Any other eleven-year-old kid might flip past a hand-drawn picture if they found it in a textbook. But not Drew Daley. When he discovers a detailed drawing tucked away in his science book, his entire life changes. He finds himself seeing everything differently and caring about things in a way he never did before. Drew becomes determined to find the artist, but with the list of names inside the front cover of his book as his only clue, the search isn’t an easy one. He encounters overbearing teachers and bullies, broken windows and promises, and even death and destruction. On top of all that, Drew has to navigate through fifth grade, where he’s learning some important life lessons: Lies can be more common than the truth, people aren’t always who they seem, and the most complex problems rarely have “right” answers. Through it all, the drawing gives Drew peace of mind and direction. But how far is he willing to go to uncover the identity of the artist?

“Detours” explores the reception of Kant’s works in Vienna, Austria and Eastern Europe from a historical point of view and focuses on six topics: Kant and Censorship, Kant and Karl Leonhard Reinhold, who was the first Kantian born in Vienna and became a precursor for German and Austrian Kant reception in Jena, Kant and Eastern Europe, Kant and his Poets, Kant and Phenomenology and Kant and the Vienna Circle. In this way, the ambivalent perception of Kant in Austria becomes clearer: On the one hand Kant was censored and criticized harshly but on the other hand Kant's philosophy was studied actively in the “underground”.
