It is a story within a story, a chronology of the spiritual and professional journey of a young woman searching for the meaning of a vision that she saw at the birth of her son.

A non-threatening entrance into texts from the Apostolic Fathers to Mary Daly.
Life abounds with crises, disappointments, mundane routines, and some very joyful moments. Everything that happens has a cause. We often don't take time to reflect on purposes, or we simply explain events away with simplistic explanations of either good or bad luck. Totally unaware of real causes behind life events, we easily move on to the next day, the next week, and the next year. In a gentle way, Sarah Liu leads the reader on a walk through events from her childhood in China and shows the handprint of God on these vignettes of her life. As she reflects on what God accomplished through joys, crises, disappointments, and ordinary family life, she invites readers to reflect on their own life experiences to detect the hand of God. Her conviction that God selects and covers with grace regardless of man's perceptions runs throughout her stories and provides encouragement and inspiring faith and trust. This book provides encouragement for anyone praying for a loved one to come to God, but also provides rich inspiration for those with pressing questions about the meaning and purpose of life's crises and disappointments. Parents, pastors, ministers, teachers, and leaders would be inspired by this devotional written from a genuine passion to explore God's present action in life's daily events.
Many books have been written in the past about journeys. There are stories written about journey to the center of the earth, journey to the depths of the sea, journey to the outer space and even journeying through time. Our Christian life is a journey too, that we began the moment we came to accept Christ as our Lord and Savior. It is a journey with a destination; eternal life with Christ in heaven. And as with most journeys, it is not without its challenges and trials. This book is a compilation of articles that I have written in my Christian journey, that details my reflections and thoughts as I journey with Christ. While some of them may be personal experiences, others are my reflections over contemporary issues in life. Our journey and the road we take will determine whether we will reach our destination.
This historical fiction book is about the life adventures of Pierre de Bré, a young French Huguenot, at the time when European and Native Americans first came into contact with each other. His family and community were massacred by the Spanish and, as a consequence, he lived among the Timucuan Indians of Florida for several years before returning to France. It is a story of harsh times in Europe - a time with divisive, indeed tumultuous religious and political problems, and a time when exploration of the unknown parts of the world was so exciting, romantic, and adventurous. The book should be of interest to anyone fascinated by the original Native American culture or with a curiosity of the historic events leading to the settling of North America. The author’s motivation for writing this book came from four distinct sources: a visit to St. Augustine, Florida, where he became captivated with the early contribution of the French Huguenots to the founding of the United States; knowledge that Huguenot ancestors on his mother’s side came to the United States from France in the late 17th century; visiting most of the places in France and Florida mentioned in the book; and going to elementary and high school with numerous Native Americans.
Nearly seven million Muslims live in the United States today, and their relations with non-Muslims are strained. Many Americans associate Islam with figures such as Osama bin Laden, and they worry about “homegrown terrorists.” To shed light on this increasingly important religious group and counter mutual distrust, renowned scholar Akbar Ahmed conducted the most comprehensive study to date of the American Muslim community. Journey into America explores and documents how Muslims are fitting into U.S. society, placing their experience within the larger context of American identity. This eye-opening book also offers a fresh and insightful perspective on American history and society. Following up on his critically acclaimed Journey into Islam: The Crisis of Globalization (Brookings, 2007), Ahmed and his team of young researchers traveled for a year through more than seventyfive cities across the United States—from New York City to Salt Lake City; from Las Vegas to Miami; from the large Muslim enclave in Dearborn, Michigan, to small, predominantly white towns like Arab, Alabama. They visited homes, schools, and over one hundred mosques to discover what Muslims are thinking and how they are living every day in America. In this unprecedented exploration of American Muslim communities, Ahmed asked challenging questions: Can we expect an increase in homegrown terrorism? How do American Muslims ofArab descent differ from those of other origins (for example, Somalia or South Asia)? Why are so many white women converting to Islam? How can a Muslim become accepted fully as an “American,” and what does that mean? He also delves into the potentially sticky area of relations with other religions. For example, is there truly a deep divide between Muslims and Jews in America? And how well do Muslims get along with other religious groups, such as Mormons in Utah? Journey into America is equal parts anthropological research, listening tour, and travelogue. Whereas Ahmed’s previous book took the reader into homes, schools, and mosques in the Muslim world, his new quest takes us into the heart of America and its Muslim communities. It is absolutely essential reading for anyone trying to make sense of America today.
Shari Hadley had been a committed, enthusiastic Wiccan for several years when her husband suddenly died in a violent car crash. That day, a visit from a Christian chaplain prompted a series of events that gradually led her to give her life to Christ. Hadley's journey, however, did not end with her kneeling at an altar and receiving baptism. The more she grew in her relationship with Christ, the more the supernatural terrorized her. But her path of discipleship led her to freedom in Christ, defeating the suffocating grip of oppression in her life. Follow Hadley along her path to freedom and learn how you, too, can be free from sin's damaging control.
