Description : Now with a new afterword from the author. "An important and extremely timely book...Get it, read it, and talk to others about it." --Timothy Keller In this unvarnished account of faith inside the world’s most powerful office, Michael Wear provides unprecedented insight into the highs and lows of working as a Christian in government. Reclaiming Hope is an insider’s view of the most controversial episodes of the Obama administration, from the president’s change of position on gay marriage and the transformation of religious freedom into a partisan idea, to the administration’s failure to find common ground on abortion and the bitter controversy over who would give the benediction at the 2012 inauguration. The book is also a passionate call for faith in the public square, particularly for Christians to see politics as a means of loving one’s neighbor and of pursuing justice for all. Engrossing, illuminating, and at time provocative, Reclaiming Hope changes the way we think about the relationship of politics and faith. "A pre-Trump book with serious questions for our politics in the age of Trump...More necessary than ever before." -- Sojourners "Should be read by Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, and all who are concerned by the state of our politics.” --Kirsten Powers, USA Today columnist and CNN political analyst "Reclaiming Hope will certainly give you a fresh perspective on politics--but, more importantly, it may also give you a fresh perspective on faith.”--Andy Stanley, senior pastor of North Point Ministries "An important and extremely timely book...Get it, read it, and talk to others about it." --Timothy Keller, author of Reason for God "An important contribution in this age of religious and political polarization." --J.D. Vance, author of Hillbilly Elegy "A lifeline for these times." --Ann Voskamp, author of One Thousand Gifts and The Broken Way “We can hope, and this book can help us.” --Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention

Description : The former Obama administration "ambassador to America's believers" gives an inside account of living with faith in the White House and argues that Christians have a responsibility to be a hopeful and faithful presence in public life. As a young Christian in his early twenties, Michael Wear found himself deep inside the halls of power in the Obama administration as one of the youngest ever White House staffers. Throwing himself wholeheartedly into transforming hope into change, Wear experienced first-hand the highs and lows of working as a Christian in government. From the central role of Christians in achievements such as the adoption tax credit and directing the president's attention to human trafficking to the religious controversies and tensions that defined much of the president's time in office, Reclaiming Hope gives an unvarnished account of life inside the most powerful office in the world. At a time when large numbers of thoughtful Christians argue for a withdrawal from participation in public institutions, Wear uses his experience at the white-hot center of civic life to show how and why Christians must be involved in every aspect of cultural life--even if failures seem to outnumber successes--while working on behalf of the nation's common good.

Description : Claim the Spiritual Freedom That Waits Beyond the Suffering and Slavery of Addiction “One of the important similarities between AA and Jewish spirituality is the statement in Step 12, ‘to practice these principles in all our affairs....’ There is no dichotomy of sacred versus secular. Jewish spirituality applies to how we eat, sleep, work, socialize and recreate. There is nothing that is external to the relationship of human being to God.” —from the Foreword A major new Jewish contribution to 12-Step spirituality. This easy-to-read exploration from a Jewish perspective is the first comprehensive approach to successfully integrate classic Jewish spirituality with the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and other recovery resources. With clarity and passion, Rabbi Paul Steinberg masterfully weaves traditional Jewish wisdom with the experience, strength and hope of AA. He draws on Jewish resources—theological, psychological and ethical—that speak to the spiritual dimension of the disease, and shows how the principles of Jewish spiritual recovery directly align with those of the AA 12 Steps. Along the way, he courageously shares his own personal struggles with alcoholism and addiction in a way that will help others find guidance and a new life path—and stay on it.

Description : "The critical task I take up in this research is to reconceptualize hope as an affective orientation in time, which requires remaining open to the risks that the unknowability of the future entails. I consider this opening a political contestation that is necessary to critique the current instrumentalization of hope as exclusively forward-looking, individualizing, and depoliticizing. Drawing on selected sources from queer theory, disability studies, affect theory, art, the critique of neoliberalism, and philosophy, each chapter of my dissertation engages diverging contemporary objects, including an online suicide prevention campaign, a Google commercial, self-help books, works of art, and political practices, in an attempt to understand hope anew. Following an interdisciplinary methodology, this research attempts to restore hope as a critical resource that has the potential to contribute to theories of time, affect, and knowledge production."--Samenvatting auteur.

Description : The most popular source of theological hope for American Christians is that of Jurgen Moltmann. Preachers, teachers, and lay people reflect Moltmann's influence, with their hope in a this-worldly eschatology and a suffering God. However, an exclusive reliance on that hope deprives the church of crucial resources in the face of global economic, environmental, and military crises. This book explores Moltmannian hope and considers its costs before looking elsewhere for additional contributions, from Thomas Aquinas's theological virtue of hope to nihilism and beyond, in order to encourage the church to sustain and practice hope in Jesus Christ, our only hope.

Description : Chris I used to think vampires were extinct, but it turns out, they're merely hiding. When my pack stayed with some vamps a while back, I couldn't believe how prickly and rude they all were... all but one: Dregan. I met him and my wolf went crazy, wanting to be close, wanting to rub up on him, wanting to bite him. It makes no sense. Vampire blood and shifter blood don't mix. In fact, I'd never survive if I ever get a taste of what I so desperately desire. But I can't get that vampire out of my head, even weeks and months after we left him. Dregan When a little wolf caught my attention, I was surprised but intrigued. The more time he spent in my den, the more I wanted him to stay close. This little innocent wolf was driving me mad, making me want a little taste. But there's a reason my den has been hiding for hundreds of years, and no matter how badly I crave that little wolf, I can't have him. I couldn't risk him getting hurt just to satisfy my needs, so I let him go. Though, nothing I do will make me forget how good he smelled, how delicious I know his blood would taste. With something cruel and dark hunting Dregan and with Chris's pack hiding from an evil force, will they ever be able to come together and help one another? Or will they let the evils of the world overtake them and let fear overshadow their desires? ***Keeping Them Unseen is the third book in the Reclaiming Hope series.

Description : She had always dreamed of having children of her own. She used to dream of how many children she wanted, what they would look like and what kind of mother she would be. Then the painful truth emerged that she could not achieve that dream, but she could have a different dream. She was warned by the Spirit of God not to adopt children. She did it anyway, and the nightmare began. She loved God, but she wanted her own way. She adopted children, and woke up the child molester. Then the true fight for her family began. In the fight, she learned that the enemy took the natural process of puberty, and used that natural process to create the wrong kind of sex drive in the pubescent male child. The sex hormone is natural, right, and good, but the imagination, the thought, the sexual fantasy coupled with the sex hormone creates a sex drive in the male child who grows into a man that destroys his life and the lives of little girls and little boys closet to him. However, God the creator is greater than sex drive. Christ Jesus defeated sin in the flesh. This wife and mother believed that with all of her heart. She believed that Christ is greater than any sex hormone or sexual fantasy in man's imagination. Therefore, she stood her ground in the face of all who tried to put her down because she chose to fight for her family. When her family was taken from her, God gave her family back to her. She had to fight the fight of faith to have her family restored, but God makes all things new. God gave her the victory. This is her story. God receives all of the Glory. This book tells a brief story of how a wife and family fought the fight of faith to stay together after child molestation. The odds were against them, they suffered hurt, pain, and humiliation, but they did not give up. She was misunderstood and ostracized, but she continued to fight for what was right for her and her family. Christ Jesus helped her live through everything."Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13)

Description : "When asked about the death toll from the September 11th attacks, New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani stated simply and eloquently that the number would likely be ""more than any of us can bear."" He was right, of course. Yet often obscured in that inconceivable number is the fact that among those who died, as well as those who lived and continue to live, were many thousands of aviation professionals with names, families, lives, and individual experiences that are an important part of the 9/11 story. Some five years later, these stories are being told for the first time in Reclaiming the Sky. In the pages of this book, you will meet some of the people whose hard work propels a critical social and economic force -- the aviation industry -- and who on the morning of September 11th, were suddenly thrust into front-line positions in the battle to put our nation back on its feet. For many of these men and women and their families, the pain and after-effects of 9/11 are exceptionally acute, but their stories will serve as touchpoints for the thousands of people whose journey to closure is still ongoing. This powerful and ultimately uplifting book not only honors the heroes of September 11th, it also offers common ground to those in search of meaning and purpose in a changed world -- both in and outside of the air travel industry -- and gives Americans in all walks of life something they still seek five years after 9/11: the courage and strength to move forward."

Description : The 'death of tragedy' in the modern era has been proposed and debated in recent years, largely in terms of literature and western culture in general. Today, any catastrophe or misadventure is likely to be labeled a 'tragedy', without any inference of a larger, transcendent horizon or providential design that the word once conveyed. This book offers new perspectives on the idea of the 'death of tragedy', taking England and the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in particular as a case study. Chapters focus on the origins of tragedy in ancient Greece, gospel and tragedy, the beginnings of the Quaker movement in seventeenth-century England, apocalyptic versus secularized experiences of time, Edwardian Quaker triumphalism, the search for English identity in postcolonial Britain, liberal Quakerism at the end of the twentieth century, and the promise and dilemma of postmodernity. The different disciplinary perspectives of the contributing authors bring literature, history, theology and sociology into a creative and revealing conversation. A Foreword by Richard Fenn introduces the book with an original and provocative meditation on tragedy and time.

Convincing and persuasive, it is an approach which flies in the face of established critical fashions and preconceptions and which reveals Johnson in a completely new light.

Description : A profound insight into the state of our health care system, the wellbeing of patients and that of their doctors.Our health care system is struggling. We live in an era of factory style medicine; spiralling costs; complex and chronic conditions; and doctors at the heart of it under pressure as never before. Witnessing worrying burnout in her doctor husband, Lucy Mayes went on a quest to find out what is really going on behind the scenes in medicine. Lucy asked doctors on the front lines how they make meaning in their work, what quality medicine looks like to them, and what their hopes are for the future of medicine. What emerged were consistent messages about elements of practice that the culture and systems of medicine still struggle to understand and support: the power of humanism; compassion; time; listening; the therapeutic relationship; and mind-body plus other whole-person understandings of health and healing. Beyond the Stethoscope will leave readers shocked, moved and inspired by the human story and wisdom of those who sit before them in that most intimate and ancient of humanist exchanges: that of the doctor and patient.
