Limbo has traditionally been viewed as a place between heaven, on the one hand, and purgatory and hell, on the other, to which the patriarchs, who lived under the old law, and babies who died before being baptized into the Christian faith have been consigned. Like purgatory, it is a dark place but not deprived of grace. Now that the Roman Catholic Church has declared that limbo is not an official church teaching, the idea of limbo has been freed from ecclesiastical constraints and available for reflection on the human condition on this side of the grave. Living in Limbo by Donald Capps and Nathan Carlin focuses on the acute limbo situations that are an integral part of human life, including the vicissitudes of growing up, of forming committed relationships, of finding employment and staying employed, of undergoing life-threatening illnesses, and of experiencing dislocation and doubt. Using cases and examples of real-life persons, the book identifies the forms of distress likely to occur throughout the duration of the limbo experience, and it also identifies the internal and external resources that individuals draw upon as they cope with the stresses and uncertainties of living in limbo. Drawing on the traditional view, especially reflected in Christian art, that Christ descends into limbo to comfort and liberate its occupants, Living in Limbo comes down on the side of hope versus despair. In reading about other limbo dwellers, readers will meet themselves-or someone they love and care about-and will be encouraged by the very fact that they are not alone. Although it is not a pleasant place to be, limbo is not a place of solitary confinement, and one derives strength and resilience from the presence of the others.
"Life is about opposites coming together to make you whole." Lisa Nance takes us on a journey of love and faith as she travels the tumultuous terrain of her husband's six-month wait for a heart transplant. It feels as if one day she's enjoying a round of golf with a seemingly healthy spouse, then the next she's at his bedside in the ICU. Now, she must face "the Wait," with a capital W, tackling the challenges of single parenting, running the family business, and visiting a terminally ill husband 500 miles away. A beautifully written, insightful, and honest account of the lessons learned by a woman living a Life In Limbo.
Reading the roller coaster inside, life in limbo will take you through the highs and lows of life whilst growing up in an ever-changing world. The heart race and heart ache of what it's like to have loved and lost through real relationship dramas and fantasies. The reality of becoming estranged from family and the aftermath of the emotions that follow. If you are human and you feel pain, desire, anger, joy, hurt and bewilderment then have a seat with me on the roller coaster of life.

Everett V. Minshall comes smashing into the literary world with his debut collection of poetry giving a haunting portrayal of a young man enduring an existential crisis without guidance or motivation. He fills his life with booze, sex, and cigarettes which ultimately swallows him deeper into madness but, set against the back-drop of love and hope, creates a profound result. My Life in Limbo: Poetry of a Boy Gone Mad is filled with sadness, dreams, endurance, art, happiness, and at times just plain gibberish; a compelling look into the meaning of life and the journey through the darkest parts of the soul.
Many organisms can reduce their resting metabolic rate to a state of suspended animation to allow them to survive in adverse environmental conditions. Molecular Mechanisms of Metabolic Arrest focuses on the latest opinions of molecular mechanisms and principles of dormancy regulation, highlighting various new concepts in metabolic rate control. This book will strongly appeal to all molecular and comparative scientists studying organismal responses to environmental stress. It is also of relevance to medical researchers interested in how natural systems of hypometabolism can be applied to relevant problems in medicine.
"Over two million of the nation's eleven million undocumented immigrants have lived in the United States since childhood. Due to a broken immigration system, they grow up to uncertain futures. In Lives in Limbo, Roberto G. Gonzales introduces us to two groups: the college-goers, like Ricardo, whose good grades and strong network of community support propelled him into higher education, only to land in a factory job a few years after graduation, and the early-exiters, like Gabriel, who failed to make meaningful connections in high school and started navigating dead-end jobs, immigration checkpoints, and a world narrowly circumscribed by legal limitations. This ethnography asks why highly educated undocumented youth ultimately share similar work and life outcomes with their less-educated peers, even as higher education is touted as the path to integration and success in America. Gonzales bookends his study with discussions of how the prospect of immigration reform, especially the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, could impact the lives of these young Americans"--Provided by publisher.
