Reviews for these books can be found on my blog posted below. No part of this book may be used or reproduced in any mann er whatsoever without written permission except in the case of brief quotations embodi ed in critical articles and reviews. This is not a book for deeply troubled souls. You zimzum, they zimzum, the two of you creating space for the other to thrive, space that is electric with love and energy and possibility.

To get rid of your scorecard, someone has to move toward the other first.

Gerhard Maier geht in diesem großen Matthäuskommentar einen durchaus eigenständigen Weg der Auslegung: Er fasst das erste der vier Evangelien als das älteste auf und verortet die Schrift in einer Zeit und in einem Umfeld, in dem sich die matthäische Gemeinde noch nicht von der israelitischen Glaubens- und Rechtsgemeinschaft getrennt hat.

Mending is the secret of life.
I enjoyed it because if I'm going to read what is basically a self-help book, I prefer to keep it simple and chatty. I read this book with my husband 1-2 months after getting married. K: I was baffled that he felt so strongly about this. A few months ago Brenden and Jana, my oldest son and my wife, had some conflict.
