♥ Book Title : Summoned to Lead
☯ Full Synopsis : "Leadership Re-VisionedCast a vision, set a strategy, rally the troops, and take the hill—you don’t need another book to rehash the well-worn principles of modern leadership. But if you’re looking for something different, something that . . . approaches leadership as an art as well as a scienceinspires hope and expectation in those of us who aren’t born leaderschallenges those with leadership roles to explore new possibilities. . . then Leonard Sweet wants to help you discover a very different kind of leadership vision. It’s one you hear if your ears are open, and it could summon you at any time. When you respond, the puzzle pieces of who you are will fit together into a leader others follow because you’ve answered a call, not trained for a position. “The church has it all wrong. It is trying to train leaders. Instead, it ought to train everyone to listen and to develop their own soundtrack.”Leaders don’t see a vision, says Sweet, they hear one. “Sound becomes sight. Leaders hear life.”For a sonogram of “acoustic leadership,” Sweet takes us inside the incredible account of Sir Ernest Shackleton, the celebrated polar explorer who led his entire crew of twenty-seven from disaster in the Antarctic to safety. Called “the greatest leader that ever came on God’s earth, bar none,” Shackleton objectifies the goals of Sweet’s own exploration in search of wisdom for today and tomorrow’s truly compelling, voice-activated leaders.Right now, you may be leading many people or just yourself. But who knows what tomorrow—or a minute from now—will call forth in you. Are your ears open?"Article| Leonard Sweet| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Habits of Change
☯ Full Synopsis : "A collection of extraordinary oral histories of American nuns, Habits of Change captures the experiences of women whose lives over the past fifty years have been marked by dramatic transformation. Bringing together women from more than forty different religious communities, most of whom entered religious life before Vatican II, the book shows how their lives were suddenly turned around in the 1960s--perhaps more so than any other group of contemporary women. Here these women speak of their active engagement in the events that disrupted their church and society and of the lives they lead today, offering their unique perspective on issues such as peace activism, global equality for women, and the clergy sexual abuse crisis. The interviewees include a Maryknoll missionary who spent decades in Africa, most recently in the Congo; an inner-city art teacher whose own paintings reflect the vibrancy of Haiti; a recovering alcoholic who at age 71 has embarked on her fourth ministry; a life-long nurse, educator, and hospital administrator; and an outspoken advocate for the gay and lesbian community. Told with simplicity, honesty, and passion, their stories deserve to be heard."Article| Carole Garibaldi Rogers| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Coming from an Off-Key Time
☯ Full Synopsis : "The fall of communism in Eastern Europe in 1989 marked, in one famous formulation, the "end of history." In his apocalyptic novel Coming from an Off-Key Time, Bogdan Suceava satirizes the events in his native Romania since the violent end of the Ceausescu regime that fateful year. Suceava uses three interrelated narratives to illustrate the destructive power of Romanian society’s most powerful mythologies. He depicts madness of all kinds but especially religious beliefs and their perversion by all manner of outrageous sects. Here horror and humor reside impossibly in the same time and place, and readers experience the vertiginous feeling of living in the middle of a violent historical upheaval. Even as Coming from an Off-Key Time suggests the influence of such writers as Mikhail Bulgakov, the fantastic satirist of the early Soviet Union, Suceava engages the complexities of a quickly changing country in search of its bearings and suspicious of its past. Bogdan Suceava is an associate professor of mathematics at California State University, Fullerton. One of Romanian literature’s most promising and original young writers, he is the author of four novels, two books of short stories, and several collections of poems. Alistair Ian Blyth’s previous translations include Filip Florian, Little Fingers (2009); Lucian Dan Teodorovici, Our Circus Presents (2009); and Catalin Avramescu’s An Intellectual History of Cannibalism (2009)."Article| Bogdan Suceava| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Why Destiny Summoned These Three Orators Center Stage
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book was written based on Betty Knights ability to balance and critically analyze three of these orators speeches made during three different eras of American history. Her insights allow readers to see what I saw immediately after speaking with on her on many occasions: her unique way of interpreting the past, present, and the future. The deposit that Knight has made to her readers lives will demonstrate that she is not among the many but among the few; for many are called, but few are chosen. After reading her other book W.H.O.L.E., I realized that Betty Knight had something to say to the class of 2010 and her colleagues in the ministry. So I asked her to be the keynote speaker at her own graduation in Chicago, Illinois on September 11, 2010. She agreed. Her keynote address was entitled If you can wait your time, you will have your turn. Knight has received her Doctorate of Philosophy in Ministry. After reading her thesis, I truly understand why God has equipped her to have an impact on her audience as well as keep it present throughout this experience. In this book, Knight addresses how Christianity and the United States Constitution stand somewhat at odds with each other while sometimes forming a bond, those of creative mind and genius that make it possible for them to deal together with key problems of American history. Knights writing brings this theme center stage, including the many contradictions within Christianity as a religious institution and interpretations of its sacred text, the Bible, from which, a way of life was drawn by those who attempted to understand and practice Christianity within Western culture. This book enables the reader to understand when and how to reconcile these contradictions. In addition, the book identifies basic essentials for life, its governance, and its survival all to be viewed from the perspective of numerous identifying principles that have caused alienation within American life. When you finish reading this book you will completely understand why God called these African Americans orators Douglass, King, and Obama center stage."Article| Dr. Betty M. Knight| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Napoleon's Shield & Guardian
☯ Full Synopsis : "This outstanding biography is the story of courage. It charts the career of a superbly brave cavalryman against the rise and fall of his imperial master. Pierre Daumesnil was a loyal follower of Napoleon during his rise and his fall. Enlisting as a private soldier in 1793, he was caught up in the tumult of the Napoleonic Wars, surviving campaign after campaign and emerging as a much-decorated general and Baron of the Empire. It was a meteoric rise but one earned through hard fighting, bravery and indefatigable courage. Daumesnil accompanied Napoleon as an officer of his chasseurs and his service record reflects his years of experience on the field of battle. Daumesnil joined the French Army as a private in 1793 and was serving in Napoleon's Guides in 1797. He served in Egypt in 1798, charged at Marengo in 1800, fought at Austerlitz and Eylau, campaigned in Spain and saw action in Wagram. Terribly wounded at that battle, losing a leg, Daumesnil became governor of the fortress of Vincennes. It was here that he played his most celebrated role in the wars of Napoleon by refusing to surrender the fortress to the Allies in 1814 and again in 1815. Daumesnil's life was an adventure and one which typifies the dash, colour and verve of this astonishing period. This biography, by a leading author, will appeal to Napoleonic enthusiasts and those interested in the life and times of Napoleon's elite cavalrymen."Article| Edward Ryan| Statement ..."
