The security and confident happiness of childhood is for most people thrown into disarray by the experiences of the later years. We find the world is not what we expected. Instead it is as though we have been thrown into a whirlpool with a thousand threatening vortices. Why is our world like this? Are there some keys to understanding it, and to negotiating its dangers? How should we live? This volume traces the historical reasons for our world's ideological and existential chaos. It demonstrates that the cosmic bleeding giant, of which we are a part can only be survived by those who know and live the Christian gospel. The nature of that gospel is described so clearly that none need miss the blessings purchased by Christ for each one of us.
The medical stories NHS doctors tell can sometimes seem far-fetched or downright bizarre. Would you believe the one about the man who got stuck with half a paintbrush? The medical ethics of a woman using the hospital like a babysitting service? The day when two surgeons almost came to blows after a squabble over the OR? After reading this brilliantly realised medical nonfiction collection of short stories you will no longer doubt the strange and sometimes tragic circumstances doctors face in medical diagnosis and treatment. From humour stories about misbehaving patients to short biographies to moving medical stories with tragic ends, Dr Jay weaves a tale of over thirty years' experience, and relates some of the most interesting medical diagnosis and treatment of patients from his career. His narrative voice is rich and compelling, and each of the patients' short biographies is treated with the solid medical ethics we have come to expect from our doctors. Forthright and entertaining, this medical nonfiction collection of short stories comes directly from the horse's mouth and includes humour stories as well as short biographies that reveal some of the least pleasant aspects of life as a Surgeon.
This is the exciting tale of Clive, the chameleon's journey to find his long lost family on the island of Madagascar with his two friends Flit, a humming bird and Barge, a rhinoceros beetle. The three companions encounter all sorts of situations and unsavoury characters on their adventure, including a nasty spider called Mildew, a rather confused giraffe called Netty, who believes she is a bird, some tourists, a gang of hungry hyenas, a short sighted pelican and a band of modern day pirates. Luckily, after a series of hair raising situations they finally get to their destination to find a pot of gold at the end.
