"Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!": Adventures of a Curious Character

by Bill Gates Ralph Leighton Richard P. Feynman

One of the most famous science books of our time, the phenomenal national bestseller that "buzzes with energy, anecdote and life. It almost makes you want to become a physicist" (Science Digest). Richard P. Feynman, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, thrived on outrageous adventures. In this lively work that “can shatter the stereotype of the stuffy scientist” (Detroit Free Press), Feynman recounts his experiences trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and cracking the uncrackable safes guarding the most deeply held nuclear secrets—and much more of an eyebrow-raising nature. In his stories, Feynman’s life shines through in all its eccentric glory—a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, and raging chutzpah. Included for this edition is a new introduction by Bill Gates.

Apocalyptic Literature in the New Testament (Core Biblical Studies)

by Greg Carey

Every significant layer of the New Testament features the distinctive concerns of apocalyptic literature, including the expectation of a messiah, hope for a resurrection, expectation of a final judgment, and a spiritual world that includes angels and demons. Yet many contemporary readers shy away from things apocalyptic, especially the book of Revelation. This introduction considers the influence of apocalyptic literature throughout the Gospels and Acts, Paul's letters, and Revelation. It argues that early Christian authors drew upon apocalyptic topics to address an impressive array of situations and concerns, and it demonstrates--example after example--how apocalyptic discourse contributed to their ongoing work of contextual theology.

Gandhi: Portrait of a Friend

by E Stanley Jones Foundation

"On the day that Mahatma Gandhi was killed, I arrived in Delhi just an hour and a quarter before the tragedy ... the greatest tragedy since the Son of God died on the cross." So begins this compelling account of Gandhi by E. Stanley Jones, the world-renowned missionary evangelist to India during 40 seething years of struggle. Based on an intimate knowledge and understanding, Jones's revealing interpretation was written in gratitude to Gandhi, who, although they often disagreed, showed Jones "more of the spirit of Christ than perhaps any other . . . in East or West." "Martin Luther King, Jr., told me he owed a debt to my father for his book on Mahatma Gandhi. He had read many books on Gandhi, read his writings, but it was that particular book of my father's that had triggered his decision to use the method of ... nonviolence in his civil rights movement for his people." --Eunice Jones Mathews "Highly recommended."--Library Journal "To understand the meaning of this great leader ... read this book of interpretation."--Kirkus "Jones ... possesses a great gift of sympathetically interpreting the East to the West."--[London] Times Literary Supplement

Leadership Directions from Moses: On the Way to a Promised Land

by Olu Brown

Author Olu Brown shares principles from the story of Moses, to guide leaders through some of the most gut-wrenching situations they will face. Leadership Directions from Moses answers the question, ‘How can I remain effective in answering my own call, when people around me—some of whom are trusted friends and colleagues—will not (or cannot) stay on the journey we’ve set out to complete? How can I keep moving forward, when the path suddenly becomes so difficult?’ The book covers topics like how to help others leave gracefully, how not to be upended when others choose to leave, how to have difficult conversations, and how to find unexpected opportunity in the challenge of new vacancies. It is full of practical help, including examples from pastors and churches across the US. It is also filled with compassion and wisdom—a pastoral book for pastors facing this difficult, nuanced, and often-emotional topic.

Pastoral Care: Telling the Stories of Our Lives

by Karen D. Scheib

Christian pastoral care is a narrative, ecclesial, theological practice (NET). As a narrative practice, pastoral care attends to the inseparable interconnection between our own lifestories, others' stories, the larger cultural stories, and God's story. As a ministry of the church, pastoral care is an ecclesial practice that derives its motivation, purpose, and identity from the larger mission of the church to bear witness to and embody God's mission of love that extends beyond the church for the transformation of the world. As a theological practice, pastoral care is grounded in God's love story. God's profound love for humankind heals our brokenness when human love fails and invites us into an ongoing process of growth in love of God, self, and neighbor. Intended for those who provide care with and on behalf of religious communities, author Karen Scheib focuses on listening and "restorying" practices occurring in the context and setting of congregations. By coauthoring narratives that promote healing and growth in love, pastoral caregivers become cocreators and companions who help others revise and construct life-stories reshaped by the grace of God. What Karen Scheib has done in this book is to reposition pastoral care as a theological activity performed in the context of the church. She draws deeply upon her Wesleyan theological heritage, upon an understanding of life in its fullness as growth in love and grace, and upon a "communion ecclesiology" undergirded by a communal understanding of the Trinitarian life of God. Thus grounded, she envisions pastoral care first as a rhythm of the life of the whole church and secondarily as a work of trained pastors. In her vision, pastoral care is rescued from a narrow understanding of it as exceptional acts of intervention performed only in moments of dire crisis. Instead, it becomes a "daily practice of pastoral care," an attending, in love, to the stories of others and a "listening for ways God is already present in a life story." Solidly theological, grounded in the life of the church, and eminently teachable - Karen Scheib has given us a great gift in this book." from the Foreword -Thomas G. Long, Bandy Professor of Preaching, Emeritus, Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, GA

You Are Enough: How To Elevate Your Thoughts, Align Your Energy & Get Out of the Comparison Trap

by Cassie Mendoza-Jones

You are Enough explores why we have become so worried about what other people think of us, and what our infatuation with comparison can cause on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. If you are sick of striving, or feeling like a perfectionist comparer, here are the practical tools for getting out of the comparison trap, so that you can learn to accept yourself as you are, and revel in the sense of peace and ease that this brings. Are you sick of giving yourself a hard time? Have you had enough of comparing yourself to others? Do you feel that nothing you do is good enough? It doesn’t have to be this way. Because guess what? Your worth is innate—you can’t earn it with accomplishments or by hitting your goals … which means you can’t lose it when you think you haven’t done enough. It’s time to let go of the negative thoughts that keep telling you that you’ll only be more when you work harder … that keep you stuck, constantly comparing yourself to those around you. It’s time to understand what your body is trying to tell you when you’re burning out, pushing yourself to your limits, and chasing self-worth, achievements and perfectionism. You are enough. Knowing this starts with accepting yourself. And the shift to true self-acceptance is realising you’re already enough.

La aventura urbana de América Latina. Recorridos_3

by GERMÁN MEJÍA PAVONY

El ochenta por ciento de los latinoamericanos vive hoy en poblaciones de más de 20.000 habitantes. Esta cifra sorprende, pues aceptamos que la mayoría de las localidades de la región apenas sobrepasa el carácter rural. En realidad, la historia del desarrollo urbano del subcontinente ha sido desdeñada por teorías victimistas que la condenan sin remedio al atraso; por ello, resulta paradójico que desde los primeros años del siglo XIX la ciudad se revelara esencial para la construcción de los nuevos Estados nacionales, y que la producción de riquezas, de origen agrario o minero, encontrara en sus urbes la única posibilidad para transformar la sociedad entera. La historia de América Latina es, en este sentido, una aventura de futuro que se construye desde las entrañas de su ya longeva dinámica urbana. Recorridos se propone destacar los ejes comunes a la historia de América Latina en una perspectiva global, libre de visiones nostálgicas y exóticas. La serie analiza desde la independencia hasta la actualidad temas y horizontes que trascienden lo nacional, tanto en el espacio como en el tiempo. Mediante una narrativa accesible y con un enfoque novedoso, identifica elementos de originalidad social y cultural. También reflexiona sobre la potencia y la presencia de América Latina en tiempos de globalización, en los que se ha convertido en destacada protagonista.

Expanding Perspectives on Human Rights in Africa (The International Political Economy of New Regionalisms Series)

by Bonny Ibhawoh M. Raymond Izarali Oliver Masakure

This book draws attention to emerging issues around the rights of minorities, marginalized groups, and persons in Africa. It explores the gaps between human rights provisions and conditions, showing that although international human rights principles have been embraced in the continent, various minority groups and marginalized persons are denied such rights through criminalization and persecution. African countries have a good record of signing and ratifying international and regional rights instruments but the political will and capacity for enforcing these with respect to minorities remain weak. International contributors to the book provide new perspectives on the rights of marginalized and minority groups in different parts of Africa and the extent to which they are deprived or denied entitlement to the universality and equality articulated in law. The authors show that human rights, while having come of age as a moral ideal, has not been fully entrenched in practice towards groups such as children, indigenous populations, the mentally ill, persons with disabilities, and persons with albinism. This volume is geared toward scholars, students, human rights groups, policy makers, social workers, international organizations, and policy makers in the fields of criminology, security studies, development studies, political science, sociology, children studies, social psychology, international relations, postcolonial studies, and African Studies.

Konets

by César Pérez Gellida

Konets es el colofón final de una historia conformada por ocho novelas -las trilogías «Versos, canciones y trocitos de carne» y «Refranes, canciones y rastros de sangre», Khimera y la presente- protagonizadas por personajes inolvidables y cuyas tramas están al alcance de muy pocos escritores fuera y dentro de nuestras fronteras. El capítulo pendiente en la despiadada «Obra» de Augusto Ledesma Olek Opiozcenek no es únicamente un nombre más en el extenso listado de víctimas que conformaron la «Obra» de uno de los más crueles asesinos en serie de la historia. Aquel niño nacido de la perversa simiente de Augusto Ledesma ha crecido bajo los cuidados de sus abuelos maternos y con el respaldo económico de una peculiar hada madrina: Rusalka. Sin embargo, Olek está empeñado en desenterrar esos secretos del pasado exprimiendo sus habilidades como hacker; pero, en ocasiones, descubrir el punto de partida condiciona el itinerario y, consecuentemente, el destino. Konets («fin» en ruso) es un thriller frenético, un tratado sobre la maldad estructurado en cuatro movimientos y desarrollado en dos escenarios temporales: la adolescencia de Olek y su madurez, o, lo que es lo mismo, el antes y el después de los sucesos que se narran en Khimera. Ambas novelas conforman el engranaje conclusivo entre las dos aclamadas trilogías «Versos, canciones y trocitos de carne» y «Refranes, canciones y rastros de sangre» que han atrapado a miles de lectores en el inabarcable universo gellidista. «La luz y la oscuridad son dos conceptos que conforman una única idea. Dos fuerzas complementarias, pero opuestas. Si el mar es el yang: la absorción, lo pasivo, lo oscuro, y el río es el ying: la penetración, lo activo y la luz, ¿de cuál de las dos fuerzas te gustaría ser partícipe si tuvieras el privilegio de elegir sabiendo que ninguna se impone a la otra?»

The Last Days of Jack Sparks

Nobody knew what happened to Jack in the days that followed -- until now. "Wow. Seriously hard to put down." -- M.R. Carey, author of The Girl With All the Gifts
