Dr Dave Walker was a successful anesthesiologist with a special interest in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Disillusioned with God after a series of tragedies, he lived for himself and his work; but something was wrong: Though he was seeing people healed physically, their lives were not changed and it all seemed pointless. This set him on a quest to find a God who does not look on impersonally from a distance, as he thought, but is intimately involved in our lives. After a dramatic encounter, he started praying with his patients. Suddenly things happened beyond anything he could have imagined as God intervened in response to prayer. In the meantime Dave was facing his own personal trials which tested his faith to the limit. Set firstly in a South Africa transitioning into democracy from apartheid and then in the Muslim world of the Middle East, God in the ICU will take you into the drama of critical care medicine, the inner life of a praying, caring physician and above all, the . . .

For decades we have been taught that fat is bad for us, carbohydrates better, and that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more. Yet despite this advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes. Taubes argues that the problem lies in refined carbohydrates, like white flour, easily digested starches, and sugars, and that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number. In this groundbreaking book, award-­winning science writer Gary Taubes shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong.

Serita Stevens has published many books, from mystery novels to a description of poisonous plants. She also has long been a nurse, and it is that profession that sent her to learn more about what a nurse could do when one of her cases seemed to have a criminal or illegal side. "SleuthRN" on the Web led her to the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) and that started her off on her specialty as a forensic nurse. She took the courses that gave her training in law and medicine, learning that the number of cases that came under the umbrella of forensic is a great deal larger than she had imagined: if there is any legal aspect at all, forensics play a part. Insurance? Possible liability? Workman's compensation? All these and more join the more obvious criminal or suspected criminal cases in having "forensic" connotations.
