Meg is Team Mom and Michael is coach of their twin sons' youth baseball team, the Caerphilly Eagles. Meg tangles with Biff Brown, the petty, vindictive league head.

📒Why Did Jesus Have To Die ✍ Chris Conrad_
📝Why Did Jesus Have to Die Book Synopsis : What is God really like? In religion, like science, we need to know the truth! What started the war in heaven? Does God care for me? Is faith really all we need to be saved? Why did Jesus have to die? This bold study addresses these vital spiritual questions with a biblically solid, inspiring, and fresh perspective. Conrad reveals a magnificent God who prefers that we consider ourselves his trusted friends and not just obeying servants-a caring God who wants us to be willing to ask him even the hardest and most personal questions. He describes a great controversy in which God has been accused by Satan of lying and shows how God has demonstrated his truthfulness. He focuses on the question of why Jesus needed to die and gives a surprising, clear, and reasonable explanation. He tells of a gracious God that loves us more than life itself and prepares us for a time of trouble soon to come. Most of all, it introduces an alternate theology-the Great Controversy-Demonstration Model-that may shake the Earth.

He meets men who fight under different flags, and women who risk everything if they break their society's code of honour. Where has he come from, and where will fate take him? 'Striking. One of the finest collections of short stories to come out of south Asia in decades. Rarely has a writer shown greater empathy for its people, or brought such wisdom and knowledge to writing about a terrain largely inaccessible. The power and beauty of these stories are unparalleled in most fiction to come out of south Asia' Guardian 'Astonishing' Independent 'Remarkable. Written in a style that has about it the reverberant clarity of fables, but their intention is realist, uncovering a largely neglected world, and their cumulative effect is deeply moving' Sunday Times 'Its setting alone, in the cruel and punishing highlands, deserts and rocky altitudes where the borders of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran meet, is worth the price of admission. Here is a book, to my knowledge the first in fiction, that gives an insider's account of the hard-bitten lives of the scores of tribes, collectively known as the Pawindas, or foot-people. The result is mesmerising' The Times 'Brilliantly evokes the harshness of nomadic life. Chilling' Metro Jamil Ahmad was born in Jalandhar in 1933.
