Daniel relates her conversion to Christianity, touching on miraculous events in her medical practice, her personal health challenges that were impacted by prayer, and how faith saw her through one of the most difficult times in her life. (Christian)
Many people wonder why bad things happen to good people. You have to realize that there are many things which are hidden from us; and they are known to God. And we do not have to worry ourselves to know about many of them, especially when knowing the true nature and reason may not avail any good. We are not God; and we cannot know everything. Yet God reveals what He wants us to know to us. The Spirit of God reveals many things to us; but He reveals what God wants us to know. And you may not have to use what God told you about a situation to generalize and apply it to some other situations. If you do, you may be erring and deceiving yourself and others.
Writer Helen Bailey's world fell apart in early 2011 when she and her workaholic husband took off on a well-earned break to Barbados and days after arriving Helen watched helplessly from the beach as he was dragged out to sea in a rip-current and drowned. Alone and more than three thousand miles from home, she was a wife at breakfast and a widow by lunchtime. With her life as she knew it shattered, Helen began to chronicle living after such devastating and shocking loss in a blog - Planet Grief - and gained a worldwide following from many who had experienced huge loss, whether through death or divorce. And now her blog has become a book. Anecdotal, witty, heartbreaking and utterly grounded, When Bad Things Happen to Good Bikinis covers all the obvious struggles in the aftermath of a loss, as well as many not-so-obvious but just as poignant everyday obstacles. Helen has emerged from her nightmare, and her story will bring wry humour, comfort and hope to a huge number of people, whatever their circumstances.

There is only one question which really matters: why do bad things happen to good people?' Out of a faith-shaking and senseless waste of a life comes this remarkable and caring book, which will help many. It has sensible and unorthodox and mind-opening things to say about God - and about ourselves. Its author has wisdom and no bitterness. We can learn from him, about acceptance and guilt and despair and the helplessness we all feel when 'none of it makes sense' when we say 'why them?' or worse 'why us?'. We owe him our thanks' David Kossoff 'Rabbi Kushner writes from a wealth of Jewish wisdom and pastoral devotion, but his theology is, I find, is wholly in keeping with contemporary Christian thought. So far as there is an answer to the conflict between the goodness of God and the bitterness of suffereing, this is it' Gerald Priestland 'It will bring new meaning, strength and hope to many' Dame Cicely Saunders, DBE, FRCP

"Wo drei Flüsse sich kreuzen" von Bestseller-Autorin Hannah Kent ist ein mitreißendes Drama um die Macht von Angst und Aberglaube - basierend auf einer wahren Geschichte aus dem 19. Jahrhundert. Irland 1825: Die 14-jährige Mary soll der verwitweten Bäuerin Nora mit deren schwer behindertem Enkel Michael zur Hand gehen. Der kleine Junge, so munkelt man im Dorf, sei ein Wechselbalg, ein Feenkind, und mache die Kühe krank. Mary gibt nichts auf das Gerede, doch als Nora davon hört, reift in der einsamen, verzweifelten Frau eine ungeheuerliche Idee: Wenn es ihr gelingt, den Wechselbalg zu vertreiben, würde sie den gesunden Michael wiederbekommen und endlich wieder eine echte Familie haben. Getrieben von Angst und Aberglaube und unterstützt durch die geheimnisvolle Kräuterfrau Nance ist sie bald bereit, alles zu versuchen – und Mary fällt es immer schwerer, sich gegen die beiden Frauen durchzusetzen. Hannah Kent gelingt es durch ihre kristallklare Sprache erneut, eine grausame und wahre Geschichte eindringlich zu erzählen; die raue Schönheit Irlands verschmilzt mit dem Seelenleben ihrer Figuren, die dem Leser, wie schon in ihrem Debüt-Roman "Das Seelenhaus", ganz nahe kommen.

From one of the nation's preeminent experts on women and emotion, a breakthrough new book about how to stop negative thinking and become more productive It's no surprise that our fast-paced, overly self-analytical culture is pushing many people-especially women-to spend countless hours thinking about negative ideas, feelings, and experiences. Renowned psychologist Dr. Susan Nolen-Hoeksema calls this overthinking, and her groundbreaking research shows that an increasing number of women-more than half of those in her extensive study-are doing it too much and too often, hindering their ability to lead a satisfying life. Overthinking can be anything from fretting about the big questions such as "What am I doing with my life?" to losing sleep over a friend's innocent comment. It is causing many women to end up sad, anxious, or seriously depressed, and Nolen-Hoeksema challenges the assumption-heralded by so many pop-psychology pundits of the last several decades-that constantly expressing and analyzing our emotions is a good thing. In Women Who Think Too Much, Nolen-Hoeksema shows us what causes so many women to be overthinkers and provides concrete strategies that can be used to escape these negative thoughts, move to higher ground, and live more productively. Women Who Think Too Much will change lives and is destined to become a self-help classic.
