Mark Langworthy has just returned home after a stint as a colonial administrator in India. Once a promising writer, his dreams and idealism have been extinguished, and he returns stricken with malaria and fatigued in both body and spirit. When he meets his nephew, Paul, an ingenuous orphan of eighteen and an aspiring writer, Mark sees in the boy a chance for redemption. Over the course of an English summer they form a close though sometimes difficult friendship, but when Paul begins a love affair with one of his uncle's former acquaintances, Anne, things begin to unravel. A series of circumstances threatens the bond they have developed, and when Anne suggests that Mark's interest in Paul may not be what it seems, both Mark and Paul will have to come to terms with their feelings and discover the true nature of love and friendship. Published in 1948, "An Air That Kills" is the third of Francis King's more than thirty novels. Widely acclaimed as one of the finest novelists of his generation, King displays in this early work all the imaginative energy and ardour of a young writer dealing with a theme which he clearly felt profoundly. This 60th anniversary edition includes a new introduction by the author.

When Pope Francis wrote in his apostolic letter The Joy of the Gospel that the economy of the West is one that “kills,” he was immediately labeled by some as a Marxist. Criticisms came fast and furious, not only from financial columnists and conservative cable personalities, but also from some Catholic commentators, especially in the United States. In This Economy Kills, two of the most respected journalists covering the Vatican today explore the Pope’s teaching and witness on the topic; the ways it relates to other topics like war, the environment, and family life; its connections to the teaching of his predecessors; and the criticism it has generated, especially from the direction of the United States. This fascinating book includes the full text of an extended interview the authors conducted with Francis on the topic of capitalism and social justice, appearing here in English for the first time. This Economy Kills is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand Pope Francis’s convictions about the world we live in and the way he believes Christians are called to shape it.

GAUTENG, South Africa Peter Johnson had only one wish; he wished to be a teacher again. Problem is, he was a hobo and nobody was going to ever employ him. The wealthy Atkinson family was desperately trying to overcome their grief. Not being able to get over the deaths of their twin daughters in a car accident, the husband, Michael, was slowly turning into a monster. Both the Atkinson’s and Peter saw their redemption in a miracle event that was coming to town. A heavy thunderstorm however, disrupted people’s efforts to get tickets for this event. When the beggar offer the Atkinsons to queue for them in exchange for a ticket, Kathy eagerly accepted. The Pastor however, got seriously injured in a car accident on his way and the event had to be cancelled. When thousands of people started to leave the stadium in disappointment, the beggar became saddened at the commitment of their faith. Still dressed in his pitiable cloths, he took to the stage and challenged their devotion to God over the powerful speakers. “You are so concerned in your own personal healing that you would not care if this whole world rots around you,” he screamed at them. Being the professional teacher he once was, he followed that with a most powerful speech from the podium. Bruce Ashton, a highly acclaimed television producer, became enthrall by the intellect of the beggar but was told by his bosses; ‘Sorry, God does not sell; sex, money and violence are what’s bringing in the money for any television company’. Risking his future as a producer and counting only on the wisdom of the beggar, Bruce Ashton persuaded Peter Johnson to take up role in a TV program. Together they started what was to become a very controversial crusade. The hobo’s life was never going to be the same again; nor the lives of those who would get involved with his. In this novel, Eben L Le Roux brings people together in a plot that could only be generated by divine intervention. A book so inspiring, motivating, fast paced and thought provoking, it will be hard to put down.
