EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Taking Your Place at the Table is the first of its kind on the art of becoming an insider. It focuses closely on three topics: 1) getting to the table—moving from the outside to the inside; 2) using your insider status wisely once you get there; and 3) leaving the table gracefully when the time is right. Joseph JB Bensmihen has fine-tuned the art of getting to the table—while becoming a millionaire and a highly successful business leader. He has given hundreds of talks at a wide range of venues, from Chautauqua Institute to Yeshiva University to Friendship Circle events. At age six, he talked his way into a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau; since then he has met with three presidents, Vice President Pence, and many senators—and has advised multiple members of Congress.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A timely, accessible, and beautifully written story exploring themes of food, friendship, family and what it means to belong, featuring sixth graders Sara, a Pakistani American, and Elizabeth, a white, Jewish girl taking a South Asian cooking class taught by Sara’s mom. Sixth graders Sara and Elizabeth could not be more different. Sara is at a new school that is completely unlike the small Islamic school she used to attend. Elizabeth has her own problems: her British mum has been struggling with depression. The girls meet in an after-school South Asian cooking class, which Elizabeth takes because her mom has stopped cooking, and which Sara, who hates to cook, is forced to attend because her mother is the teacher. The girls form a shaky alliance that gradually deepens, and they make plans to create the most amazing, mouth-watering cross-cultural dish together and win a spot on a local food show. They make good cooking partners . . . but can they learn to trust each other enough to become true friends?

Moving beyond current rhetoric, this book returns to essential questions: how do we read the Bible, see ourselves as church, and understand the mission of God as including radical hospitality. It will encourage dialog around one of the hot topic issues facing the church." -Dr. Ann Fritschel, Associate Professor of Hebrew Bible, Wartburg Theological Seminary ..". makes an excellent case for enlightened understanding of scripture. Discussion of biblical texts is vast and fair. Chapters provide excellent lead-ins to discussion." -Dr. Frank Benz, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Wartburg Theological Seminary

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

It's one thing to say that we believe in justice for all, but quite another to actively seek social justice for the poor in our midst. After extensive research, the author is convinced that a huge gap exists between talking about justice and actually doing justice for the poor. She believes that achieving justice for all requires a deep and broad approach that involves the integration of Catholic social teaching with Scripture and Tradition so that charity and justice actually become social justice. Only when people-every race, nationality, class, and religion-are educated for justice, built on respect for the person and the responsibility of individuals and the community, will we in the U.S. be able to cut through the rhetoric of blame and move toward solidarity.

But to use this time and these skills to the greatest advantage, read this book. The authors have set a great meal for you...just devour it." —Marie C. Wilson, president and founder, The White House Project "Does she have the right stuff? That question follows women whenever they are promoted to visible leadership positions. Her Place at the Table lays out the pragmatic moves that can help any woman in business show she has the right stuff. I encourage all women with leadership aspirations to use this book as a guide." —Patricia Fili-Krushel, executive vice president, Time Warner "Women roar—they are the leaders we need in corporations today, but there are still some barriers.
