The skin map by Steve Lawhead( Recording )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kit Livingstone's great-grandfather appears to him in a deserted alley during a tumultuous storm. He reveals an unbelievable story: that the ley lines throughout Britain are not merely the stuff of legend or the weekend hobby of deluded cranks, but pathways to other worlds. To those who know how to use them, they grant the ability to travel the multi-layered universe of which we ordinarily inhabit only a tiny part. One explorer knew more than most. Braving every danger, he toured both time and space on voyages of heroic discovery. Ever on his guard and fearful of becoming lost in the cosmos, he developed an intricate code, a roadmap of symbols-that he tattooed onto his own body. This Skin Map has since been lost in time. Now the race is on to recover all the pieces and discover its secrets. But the Skin Map itself is not the ultimate goal. It is merely the beginning of a vast and marvelous quest for a prize beyond imagining
Dan and the dead by Thomas Taylor( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dan can see ghosts. See them, speak to them, and sometimes help them, for a price. Dan and his ghostly sidekick Simon (who took a bullet in the brain a few hundred years ago) help the unquiet dead solve their problems and move on to wherever they go. But when they take on the case of a teenage shoplifter, things start to spin out of control. Soon Dan is up against a very dangerous and very badly dressed gangster, and he's also got to cope with a rather unusual vicar, the ghost of a Victorian stage magician who cut off his own head (don't ask) and a spot of grave robbing. It's all in a night's work
Know your why : finding and fulfilling your calling in life by Kenneth Costa( Recording )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Those who see their work as a calling experience a rich integration in their lives. They sense a purpose, a direction to their activities. Work has intrinsic meaning, rather than being simply a means to an end. In many ways this is precisely what the Spirit of God does in our lives. When people are in the flow of the Spirit, they are cooperating fully in their God-given callings. When people embrace their callings, they love their work, can manage inevitable tensions that arise, and are welcomed by their colleagues, who sense that there is something beyond the cash or career objectives

The darker the night, the brighter the stars : a neuropsychologist's odyssey through consciousness by Paul Broks( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When celebrated neuropsychologist Paul Broks's wife died of cancer, it sparked a journey of grief and reflection that traced a lifelong attempt to understand how the brain gives rise to the soul. The result of that journey is a gorgeous, evocative meditation on fate, death, consciousness, and what it means to be human. The Darker the Night, The Brighter the Stars weaves a scientist's understanding of the mind - its logic, its nuance, how we think about what makes a person - with a poet's approach to humanity, that crucial and ever-elusive why. It's a story that unfolds through the centuries, along the path of humankind's constant quest to discover what makes us human, and the answers that consistently slip out of our grasp. It's modern medicine and psychology and ancient tales; history and myth combined; fiction and the stranger truth. But, most importantly, it's Broks' story, grounded in his own most fascinating cases as a clinician--patients with brain injuries that revealed something fundamental about the link between the raw stuff of our bodies and brains and the ineffable selves we take for who we are. Tracing a loose arc of loss, acceptance, and renewal, he unfolds striking, imaginative stories of everything from Schopenhauer to the Greek philosophers to jazz guitarist Pat Martino in order to sketch a multifaceted view of humanness that is as heartbreaking at it is affirming
