New Beginnings offers an unprecedented historical inquiry into how Jews in Germany began to rebuild their social and cultural networks immediately following World War II. Lavsky concentrates on the British Zone of occupation in northwest Germany, where some of the most important Jewish communities developed and laid the foundation for a central Jewish organization in the Federal German Republic. It was here, through a unique cooperation of "camp and community," that a new Jewish post-Holocaust nationalism began to take shape. As the first in-depth analysis of the combined development of "camp and community," New Beginnings examines the history of both groups within the context of the Jewish world, the emergence of Palestine-Israel, and the international arena. In so doing, it reveals that the Jewish presence in Germany was not only an issue to be tackled by external powers but also an active force shaping the Jewish post-Holocaust stance worldwide.
Examines and records the personal experiences of individuals whose faith and acceptance of God's presence has helped them to overcome crises and to find new beginnings in their lives

As the divinely inspired Word of God, the primary purpose of the Bible is to probe the depths of the human heart more skillfully and purposefully than any surgeon could possibly imagine. With this in mind, my intent in New Beginnings is to follow the riveting narratives of Genesis and Acts with a primary emphasis on the devotional and inspirational elements. From a Christian perspective, I cannot imagine four beginnings with more historical significance than those emphasized in these two informative books: (1) the creation of the world with all its living things, (2) the foundation of Israel—God’s chosen nation, (3) the establishment of the Church—the Body of Christ, and the most incredible beginning of all, (4) people from every walk of life being born again by the power of the gospel. My personal perceptions and convictions have evolved from a background of thirty-three years using the scientific method in chemical research, and even longer exploring the eternal truths of the Bible as a Christian and minister. I might add that the practical experiences I gained as a husband, father of two girls, and bivocational pastor prevent my viewpoints from being too esoteric or theoretical in nature. Whether a casual reader or serious student of the Bible, I hope you find New Beginnings informative if not illuminating, interesting if not stirring, and encouraging if not inspiring. Finally, if your Christian fervor needs rekindling, my prayer is that these pages nourish and revitalize you—like a steaming bowl of my mother’s chicken soup on a cold, rainy day.

I’m no expert. I don’t have a degree, just experience. I have a story to tell—about what feels like a lifetime spent being abused, not by one but two different men. Despite broken relationships and all types of abuses and a big confidence problem, I still stand. I want people to hear my story, not because of what I have been through but because of what I have come through. I am not a victim. I am a winner because I stand. After finding myself and staying loyal to me, I realized nobody is going to love me until I love myself first. I looked inside myself and saw just how beautiful and loveable I really am. I’ve gone from wanting to hide, someone telling me to sit down and shut up, to God telling me to stand up and speak up. And by the grace of God, I can do just that.

Deely contends that the direction modern philosophy took did not make full or even good use of the Latin resources available to the classical modern authors. Part I of his book examines the mainstream Latin context of early modern philosophy at the time of Descartes in order to show that there were important speculative developments of the Latin tradition under way, especially in Iberia, of which Descartes himself had no knowledge. These Latin developments were subsequently screened out of the mainstream development of modern philosophy, but prove to have central relevance for the contemporary postmodern context of discourse analysis and culture studies in general. In particular, Deely shows that more than a century of late Latin development anticipated John Locke's proposal for a philosophical `doctrine of signs' or `semiotic' which would give us a sort of logic and critique of knowledge different from that which the mainstream of modern thought presaged. The Heideggerian `thought of Being' also finds an anticipation in the late latin context of early modern times. Part II of the book develops the speculative connections between late Latin philosophical developments and postmodern thought. Deely provides a masterful synthesis of late Latin scholasticism and Peircean philosophy, which bears upon the role of signs as experiential reference to human knowledge. It is noteworthy that Deely traces the historical developments surrounding the concept of `cause' in science and philosophy; this provides what may well be the most complete outline for the concept of causality to be found in current literature.

100 Inspirational Stories and Beautiful, Uplifting Photos of Survivors. “You have cancer” are three of the most terrifying words a person can hear, and our culture does little to ease the fear. New Beginnings: 100 Cancer Survivors follows one hundred survivors who discovered that those words were the start of a new beginning, not an end to their lives. New Beginnings is a collection of narratives and energetic photographic portraits of men, women, children, and families that inspire and provide hope for anyone diagnosed with cancer as well as for their families and friends. The survivors vary in age, ethnicity, and diagnosis, but they all share the ability to turn a diagnosis of cancer into a positive force in their lives. Coming from all walks of life, survivors include Sally Craigen, who beat two different cancers three decades apart but who never let it stop her from enjoying life; Rabbi William Cutter, who had already survived three heart attacks by the time he faced down prostate cancer on two occasions; Sophia Colby, diagnosed with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis at fifteen months of age, who has survived more in her ten years than many people do in their entire lives; and professional basketball player Coby Karl, who hasn’t let two bouts from thyroid cancer stop him from chasing his dreams; and ninety-six others. This is a project by and for cancer survivors: their words, Bill Aron's photographs, in collaboration with their ideas and sensibilities. This is their book.
