In this tale of love and obsession set against a picturesque Seattle backdrop, the lives of four successful thirty-somethings collide in a life-altering moment that transforms loneliness into total destruction. When Rawn, a schoolteacher, and D’Becca, a supermodel, meet, their electric chemistry leads to a relationship of passion and intimacy that neither anticipates—until Rawn’s seductive friend and colleague Sicily introduces him to emotionally fragile fashion designer Tamara. Sultry, beautiful, and dangerously unstable, Tamara develops a fixation with Rawn that leads to deception and an impulsive act of desperation that irrevocably intertwines four lives. Soon Rawn becomes a person of interest in a murder and the target of a media spectacle. Packed with sexy, page-turning drama, Vulnerable illustrates the complexity of desire and emotion, the weakness in human nature, and the fragility and spontaneity of fate.

This book is intended as an aid to believers in developing a daily time of morning revival with the Lord in His word. At the same time, it provides a limited review of the winter training held December 22-27, 2014, in Anaheim, California, on the “Crystallization-study of Exodus.” Through intimate contact with the Lord in His word, the believers can be constituted with life and truth and thereby equipped to prophesy in the meetings of the church unto the building up of the Body of Christ.
This brilliant blend of history, biography, and criticism explores the seminal figures of twentieth-century French art—Matisse, Picasso, Derain, Léger, Dufy, Braque, Giacometti, Balthus, and Hélion—and the vital art world in which they thrived. The ten interlocking essays in this important book include radical new evaluations of Derain, Léger, and Dufy, and penetrating studies of the final works of Picasso and Braque. Paris Without End, Jed Perl’s first book, is now celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary and is essential reading for anyone passionate about modern art. Roberta Smith called it “a quiet, cogent tour de force. . . . As one critic’s demonstration of what he considers the best in art and the best way to write about it, this book sets a high standard.” Hilton Kramer also noted, “Everyone who cares about the art of the twentieth century will find something to disagree with in this book—its many unorthodox judgments are bound to be controversial—but that, in my view, is a mark of the book’s importance.”
