The Givenness Of Things: Essays

by Marilynne Robinson

Long-listed for the 2016 PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay The spirit of our times can appear to be one of joyless urgency. As a culture we have become less interested in the exploration of the glorious mind, and more interested in creating and mastering technologies that will yield material well-being. But while cultural pessimism is always fashionable, there is still much to give us hope. In The Givenness of Things, the incomparable Marilynne Robinson delivers an impassioned critique of our contemporary society while arguing that reverence must be given to who we are and what we are: creatures of singular interest and value, despite our errors and depredations. Robinson has plumbed the depths of the human spirit in her novels, including the National Book Critics Circle Award-winning Lila and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Gilead, and in her new essay collection she trains her incisive mind on our modern predicament and the mysteries of faith. These seventeen essays examine the ideas that have inspired and provoked one of our finest writers throughout her life. Whether she is investigating how the work of the great thinkers of the past, Calvin, Locke, Bonhoeffer--and Shakespeare--can infuse our lives, or calling attention to the rise of the self-declared elite in American religious and political life, Robinson's peerless prose and boundless humanity are on display. Exquisite and bold, The Givenness of Things is a necessary call for us to find wisdom and guidance in our cultural heritage, and to offer grace to one another.

The Givers: Wealth, Power, and Philanthropy in a New Gilded Age

by David Callahan

An inside look at the secretive world of elite philanthropists--and how they're quietly wielding ever more power to shape American life in ways both good and bad. While media attention focuses on famous philanthropists such as Bill Gates and Charles Koch, thousands of donors are at work below the radar promoting a wide range of causes. David Callahan charts the rise of these new power players and the ways they are converting the fortunes of a second Gilded Age into influence. He shows how this elite works behind the scenes on education, the environment, science, LGBT rights, and many other issues--with deep impact on government policy. Above all, he shows that the influence of the Givers is only just beginning, as new waves of billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg turn to philanthropy. Based on extensive research and interviews with countless donors and policy experts, this is not a brief for or against the Givers, but a fascinating investigation of a power shift in American society that has implications for us all.From the Hardcover edition.

Giving God Your Future

by Women Of Faith

In Psalm 31:14, David writes, "But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say, 'You are my God.'" David was able say this because he had developed a lifestyle of depending on the Lord in every situation--both the good times and the bad. The same is true for us. When we're willing to completely trust our future to God, the relationship we long for with Him deepens, strengthens, and becomes more vibrant. In Giving God Your Future, you will explore what Scripture has to say about giving everything to God and surrendering to Him. You will examine what the Bible teaches about yielding your will to His and depending solely on His strength. You will discover how you, like Christ, can truly pray, "Not my will, but Yours, be done" (Luke 22:42). The Women of Faith® Bible Studies provide intriguing insights into topics that are relevant to women's lives today. Each guide includes twelve weeks of study, down-to-earth illustrations, and reflections to help you move the truth from your head to your heart.

Giving to Help, Helping to Give: The Context and Politics of African Philanthropy

by Bertha Chiroro Gérard Tchouassi Saïda Yahya-Othman Ibrahima Hathie Mohamadou Sy Jenny Hodgson Tade Akin Aina Kwaku Asante Darko Halima Mahomed Christa L. Kuljian James Muzondidya Marwa El Daly Connie Ngondi-Houghton Fondo Sikod Andrew Kingman Alan Fowler Susan Wilkinson-Maposa Kayode Samuel Bhekinkosi Moyo Robert Muponde Mohammed A. Bakari

The past decade has seen a flowering of philanthropic activities across many parts of Africa. Unlike before, this flowering has the distinct character of African agency, energy and engagement. Philanthropy is no longer about narratives of passive, poor and miserable Africans receiving help from rich, fortunate and often Western outsiders. The emerging narratives about philanthropy in Africa are about an increasingly confident and knowledgeable assertion of African capacities to give not only to help but also to transform and seek to address the root causes of injustice, want, ignorance and disease. The narratives are also about the increasing questioning of the role and place of Africans in the world's philanthropic traditions and what constitutes African specificities but also African differences and varieties.This book is about African philanthropic experiences, their varieties, challenges and opportunities. It is about documenting, investigating, describing, questioning and reflecting on philanthropy in Africa. Because Africa is not a monolithic entity with one single history, cultural, political and economic experience, this ground-breaking book rightly tackles the varied modes, forms, vehicles and means in which the philanthropic experiences are expressed in Africa. It is a pioneering and ambitious effort in a field and community of practice that is new both in terms of scholarship and in professional practice. Many of the chapters boldly engage the burden of reflections, questions, ambivalences and ambiguities that one often finds in an emerging field, innovatively positing the outlines, concepts, frameworks and theories of scholarship and practice for a field critical to development on the continent.

The Soviet Union won the Cold War. Now, more than a century later, the world's gone communist and capitalism is a bad word. For Gianfranco and Annarita, a couple of teenagers growing up in Milan, life in a regimented, surveillance-rich command economy is just plain dreary. Annarita's a hard-working student and a member of the Young Socialists' League. Gianfranco is a lot less motivated-but on the other hand, his father's a Party apparatchik. The biggest excitement in their lives is a war-game shop called The Gladiator, which runs tournaments and stocks marvelous complex games you can't find anywhere else. Then, abruptly, the shop is shut down. Someone's figured out that The Gladiator's games are teaching counterrevolutionary capitalist principles. The Security Police are searching high and low for the shop's proprietors, who've not only vanished into thin air, but have left behind sets of fingerprints that aren't in the records of any government on earth. Only one staffer is left: Gianfranco and Annarita's friend Eduardo. On the run, he comes to them with an astonishing story: he's a time trader from our own timeline, accidentally left behind when the store was evacuated. Eduardo can get back to his own timeline only if Gianfranco and Annarita will help him reach one of the other time trader sites in this world-and the Security Police will be on their tails all the way there.

Gladstone: A Biography

by Roy Jenkins

From the New York Times bestselling author of Churchill, a towering historical biography. William Gladstone was, with Tennyson, Newman, Dickens, Carlyle, and Darwin, one of the stars of nineteenth-century British life. He spent sixty-three of his eighty-nine years in the House of Commons and was prime minister four times, a unique accomplishment. From his critical role in the formation of the Liberal Party to his preoccupation with the cause of Irish Home Rule, he was a commanding politician and statesman nonpareil. But Gladstone the man was much more: a classical scholar, a wide-ranging author, a vociferous participant in all the great theological debates of the day, a voracious reader, and an avid walker who chopped down trees for recreation. He was also a man obsessed with the idea of his own sinfulness, prone to self-flagellation and persistent in the practice of accosting prostitutes on the street and attempting to persuade them of the errors of their ways. This full and deep portrait of a complicated man offers a sweeping picture of a tumultuous century in British history, and is also a brilliant example of the biographer's art.
