A Deadly Web
The new Bishop Files novel by the New York Times bestselling author ofThe First Prophet and the Bishop/Special Crimes Unit novels.
John Brodie is a Guardian, a member of a secretive network devoted to winning a war very few even know exists: protecting the vulnerable psychics in his charge from a deadly, ruthless - and virtually invisible enemy.
Tasha Solomon is a gifted psychic whose abilities have saved her more than once from situations as dangerous as they are baffling. She doesn't believe she needs help, and she doesn't even know that Guardians exist - until Brodie saves her life.
Unaccustomed to depending on anyone for anything, Tasha now finds herself embroiled in deadly game where the ultimate goal is a fate far worse than any nightmare. The only person she can trust is Brodie to guide her through a maze of danger and deception, lies and treachery, friends and enemies, until they reach safe harbor.
If they reach safe harbor.
The Little Book Of Transformative Community Conferencing
When conflicts become ingrained in communities, people lose hope. Dialogue is necessary but never sufficient, and often actions prove inadequate to produce substantial change. Even worse, chosen actions create more conflict because people have different lived experiences, priorities, and approaches to transformation. So what’s the story?
In The Little Book of Transformative Community Conferencing, David Anderson Hooker offers a hopeful, accessible approach to dialogue that:
Integrates several practice approaches including restorative justice, peacebuilding, and arts
Creates welcoming, non-divisive spaces for dialogue
Names and maps complex conflicts, such as racial tensions, religious divisions, environmental issues, and community development as it narrates simple stories
Builds relationships and foundations for trust needed to support long-term community transformation projects
And results in the crafting of hopeful, future-oriented visions of community that can transform relationships, resource allocation, and structures in service of communities’ preferred narratives.
The Little Book Transformative Community Conferencing will prove valuable and timely to mediators, restorative justice practitioners, community organizers, as well as leaders of peacebuilding and change efforts. It presents an important, stand-alone process, an excellent addition to the study and practice of strategic peacebuilding, restorative justice, conflict transformation, trauma healing, and community organizing.
This book recognizes the complexity of conflict, choosing long-term solutions over inadequate quick fixes. The Transformative Community Conferencing model emerges from the author’s thirty years of practice in contexts as diverse as South Sudan; Mississippi; Greensboro, North Carolina; Oakland, California; and Nassau, Bahamas.
