Jim Cotter has a rare gift with words that enables him to write prayers that engage the heart and imagination as well as the mind. Here the ancient and beautiful language of night prayer is infused with fresh and striking imagery about God. Simple prayers, Psalm paraphrases and short readings for reflection open us to the mystery of God – a mystery to which we are more open at night, or when we are facing our own dark places. At night we face many things that are kept at bay by the day’s distractions. Praying the Dark Hours is a combination of two bestselling titles: Prayer at Night and Waymarks. This new edition offers structured prayer for each night of the week, based on the traditional pattern of Compline, woven together with scriptures and a short reflective reading for each day of the year and further selections for the Christian seasons.
Living and working in the dark takes a certain kind of people, the people that sleep all day, the ones who are happy to miss the sunrise, the sunsets and you're happy to pass them in the street under the lamp posts, in the shadows, and outside the shop windows while you are walking along without even a second glance but should you be so blase? Maybe you should give them a second thought after all.
Examines the lives of ten extraordinary people who overcame great adversity in their personal or professional lives by applying winning strategies that guided them out of the darkness of near-defeat and into the light of success.
With an escaped murderer rumored to be hiding on a small college campus, student journalist Allison Rose accepts a dangerous offer – an exclusive interview with the killer. He wants his side of the story told. She wants to expose the school administration’s disregard for student safety. Following a text-message negotiation, she heads to a secret meeting. There, her careful safeguards quickly fall away, and Allison finds herself embroiled in a game of wits with a twisted but brilliant mind. As the hours of a stormy night roll past, Allison is forced to traverse a grim labyrinth of traps and terrors and to confront her own secrets even as she unravels the truth of her assailant’s identity. A new short thriller from the author of Blood Hunter and Midnight Eyes.
First published in 2002 by the South Carolina Historical Society, Dark Hours was the second of two landmark Civil War research projects carried out by Randolph W. Kirkland, Jr. The companion volume on South Carolinians killed in military service, Broken Fortunes, was published in 1995. Highly prized by collectors and historians, both of Kirkland's monumental projects have now been restored to print as Civil War Sesquicentennial Editions by the University of South Carolina Press. Representing more than fifteen years of research drawn from some two hundred different sources, Kirkland's Dark Hours is a compendium of the 11,238 South Carolinians held in captivity as a result of their service to the Confederacy. Kirkland's list includes the individuals' names, ranks, units, where and when they were captured, where they were held, when they were moved, their final dispositions, and sources to assist researchers. This volume is the most complete record ever published of South Carolinians held in Union captivity during the Civil War. In his introduction Kirkland provides meticulous details and background information to the circumstances, implications, and nuances of the federal prison system during the war. He also includes appendixes outlining source codes and abbreviations for place names and ranks along with extracts from official documents concerning prisoners of war.
