Ready or Not (Morgan Connor Stories, 1)

by Mary Stolz

Morgan, Julie, and Ned Connor and their father Dan live in New York City. A poor family, they constantly have to move from one building to another to make ends meet. Morgan, the oldest at sixteen, cares for the rest of the family, escaping sometimes from her many responsibilities by daydreaming of a mysterious boy she might meet one day. When the family moves this time, however, Morgan meets a young man, Tom Miller, not realizing that she will fall in love with him. This novel follows the slow groth of Morgan and Tom's friendship and also looks at the two younger children, Ned and Julie, and at Dan's hard and frustrating life. He is an intelligent and poetically inclined man who works in a subway station. Written in the 1950's, this story is somewhat grittier and less lighthearted than many others of its day, but it also has hope and some optimism. A second book, The Day and the Way We Met, follows this one.

Ready-to-Go Devotions for Mission and Service

by Mark Ray

Ready-to-Go Devotions for Mission and Service is a toolkit of daily devotionals for youth mission trips. The devotions in this book address every aspect of the mission experience, from leaving home and sleeping on the floor to dealing with language barriers and grumpy teammates. Each devotion includes a relevant Bible story, a commentary that connects that story to the mission experience, and a section that challenges the reader to take specific actions on the trip, back home, or both. The book includes devotions in preparation for, during, and after the mission trip or service project. The ready-to-go format allows the youth worker to quickly assemble a customized devotional journal for participants, matching each day's selection to what's likely to happen that day. The devotions could also be used in a group setting, which would allow the youth worker to pick devotions based on what has happened during the trip or event. Either way, the devotions point to the larger biblical and personal significance of mission trip or service project happenings . What if you held a mission trip and nobody changed? It's a haunting, daunting question, one that youth workers and researchers across America are beginning to ask. Short-term mission trips (STM) have exploded in popularity since the mid-1990s, thanks in part to the Internet, which makes connecting with mission agencies and mission recipients easier than ever. Sociologist Kurt Ver Beek estimates that the number of North American short-term missionaries grew from 125,000 in 1989 to as many as four million in 2003. Many of those short-termers are teenagers. According to Christianity Today, more than two million American teens enter the mission field every year. Pollster George Barna reports that 15 percent of U.S. Christian teens have done a short-term mission trip, while the National Study of Youth and Religion found that 29 percent of all teens had participated in a short-term mission trip or religious service project. Unfortunately, the impact of short-term mission trips may be short-term as well, both for those who go on mission trips and for those who receive mission teams. Ver Beek recently surveyed North Americans who worked in Honduras after a 1998 hurricane, as well as those who were served by them. He found that the North American work teams had "little or no lasting impact" on the communities they served and that missionaries reported only "a small, positive, lasting change" in their own lives. The situation isn't hopeless, however, according to Robert Priest, associate professor ofmission and intercultural studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. "In research with Ph.D. students at Trinity," he wrote in Christianity Today, "I've been impressed that while STM may not always or automatically produce desired results, the right sorts of STM, carried out in the right sorts of ways, and accompanied by the right sorts of reflections, have potential for good." Unfortunately, youth workers don't always build "the right sorts of reflections" into their mission trips. At best, they allot time in the daily schedule for reflection or debriefing. At worst, they just hope and pray that their students will somehow be transformed by the mission experience. The existing literature isn't much help. Books on mission-trip planning offer plenty of advice on selecting a mission agency, raising money, coordinating transportation, handling emergencies, entering closed countries, and re-entering the "normal" world, but they offer precious little advice on using the mission experience to impact the participants' lives. The handful of available mission-focused devotional guides offer some assistance, but they typically take a one-size-fits-all approach. Usually presented as mission journals, these guides assume trips will be a certain length or include certain elements, such as dealing with non-English speakers. Ready-to-Go Devotions for Mission and Service fills the void, offering targeted, topical devotionals that can help turn short-term missions into life-changing experiences.

Reagan, In His Own Hand

by Martin Anderson Annelise Anderson Kiron K. Skinner George P. Shultz

Until Alzheimer's disease wreaked its gradual destruction, Ronald Reagan was an inveterate writer. He wrote not only letters, short fiction, poetry, and sports stories, but speeches, newspaper articles, and radio commentary on public policy issues, both foreign and domestic. Most of Reagan's original writings are pre-presidential. From 1975 to 1979 he gave more than 1,000 daily radio broadcasts, two-thirds of which he wrote himself. They cover every topic imaginable: from labor policy to the nature of communism, from World War II to the second Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty, from the future of Africa and East Asia to that of the United States and the world. They range from highly specific arguments to grand philosophy to personal stories. Even those who knew him best were largely unaware of Reagan's output. George Shultz, as he explains in the Foreword, was surprised when he first saw the manuscripts, but on reflection he really was not surprised at all. Here is definitive proof that Ronald Reagan was far more than a Great Communicator of other people's ideas. He was very much the author of his own ideas, with a single vision that he pursued relentlessly at home and abroad. Reagan, In His Own Hand presents this vision through Reagan's radio writings as well as other writings selected from throughout his life: short stories written in high school and college, a poem from his high school yearbook, newspaper articles, letters, and speeches both before and during the presidency. It offers many surprises, beginning with the fact that Reagan's writings exist in such size and breadth at all. While he was writing batches and batches of radio addresses, Reagan was also traveling the country, collaborating on a newspaper column, giving hundreds of speeches, and planning his 1980 campaign. Yet the wide reading and deep research self-evident here suggest a mind constantly at work. The selections are reproduced with Reagan's own edits, offering a unique window into his thought processes. These writings show that Reagan had carefully considered nearly every issue he would face as president. When he fired the striking air-traffic controllers, many thought that he was simply seizing an unexpected opportunity to strike a blow at organized labor. In fact, as he wrote in the '70s, he was opposed to public-sector unions using strikes. There has been much debate as to whether he deserves credit for the end of the cold war; here, in a 1980 campaign speech draft, he lays out a detailed vision of the grand strategy that he would pursue in order to encourage the Soviet system to collapse of its own weight, completely consistent with the policies of his presidency. Furthermore, in 1984, Reagan drafted comments he would make to Soviet foreign minister Andrei Gromyko at a critical meeting that would eventually lead to history's greatest reductions in armaments. Ronald Reagan's writings will change his reputation even among some of his closest allies and friends. Here, in his own hand, Reagan the thinker is finally fully revealed.

Reagan's War: The Epic Story of His Forty Year Struggle and Final Triumph Over Communism

by Peter Schweizer

Ronald Reagan has been considered at best an amiable dunce, a genial actor who simply mouthed whatever slogans his right-wing puppetmasters put in front of him. This book presents Reagan as President and statesman. Reagan's War is the story of Ronald Reagan's personal and political journey, beginning with his days in Hollywood, where he led the movie industry's resistance to an attempted communist takeover of Hollywood unions. The fight against communism changed the whole direction of his life. Schweizer chronicles Reagan's anti-communist crusade from governor of California to the White House. Along the way, Reagan moved from an initial posture of containment to being an advocate of head-on confrontation. Schweizer brings to light dozens of previously unknown facts about the Cold War, based on secret documents obtained from archives in Russia, Germany, Poland, Hungary, and the United States. Among his revelations are a North Korean and East German plot to assassinate Reagan in 1983; Reagan's secret funding of Solidarity of Poland; and the behind-the-scenes support that the Soviets and East Germans provided for European and American peace movements, as well as their clandestine contacts with U.S. government officials.
