Book Summary:

Hailed as one of the year's top five novels by Time, and selected as one of the best books of the year by nearly all major newspapers, national bestseller Peace Like a River captured the hearts of a nation in need of comfort. "A rich mixture of adventure, tragedy, and healing," Peace Like a River is "a collage of legends from sources sacred and profane -- from the Old Testament to the Old West, from the Gospels to police dramas" (Ron Charles, The Christian Science Monitor). In "lyrical, openhearted prose" (Michael Glitz, The New York Post), Enger tells the story of eleven-year-old Reuben Land, an asthmatic boy who has reason to believe in miracles. Along with his sister and father, Reuben finds himself on a cross-country search for his outlaw older brother who has been controversially charged with murder. Their journey is touched by serendipity and the kindness of strangers, and its remarkable conclusion shows how family, love, and faith can stand up to the most terrifying of enemies, the most tragic of fates. Leif Enger's "miraculous" (Valerie Ryan, The Seattle Times) novel is a "perfect book for an anxious time ... of great literary merit that nonetheless restores readers' faith in the kindness of stories" (Marta Salij, Detroit Free Press).

"A haunting, beautiful, and necessary book that will stay with you long after you've read the last page."—Nicola Yoon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything and The Sun Is Also a Star Charlotte Davis is in pieces.

You don’t have to think about your father and the river. Your best friend, who is gone forever. Or your mother, who has nothing left to give you.

A deeply moving portrait of a girl in a world that owes her nothing, and has taken so much, and the journey she undergoes to put herself back together.

Book Summary:

Widely regarded as the modern C. S. Lewis, N. T. Wright, one of the world’s most trusted and popular Bible scholars and the bestselling author of Simply Christian and Surprised by Hope, presents a manifesto urging Christians to live and pray the Bible’s Psalms in The Case for the Psalms. Wright seeks to reclaim the power of the Psalms, which were once at the core of prayer life. He argues that, by praying and living the Psalms, we enter into a worldview, a way of communing with God and knowing him more intimately, and receive a map by which we understand the contours and direction of our lives. For this reason, all Christians need to read, pray, sing, and live the Psalms. By providing the historical, literary, and spiritual contexts for reading these hymns from ancient Israel’s songbook, The Case for the Psalms provides the tools for incorporating these divine poems into our sacred practices and into our spirituality itself.

Book Summary:

This ebook includes 53 popular, rhythmic, and easy-to-play folk songs and melodies from all over the world. Through music, we are brought together and we can gain a better understanding of people from all corners of the Earth. Getting to know music from around the world can be one of the most exciting and appealing ways to be introduced to new and different cultures. Music is a universal language, meaning that it transcends borders and opens up an entirely new way of thinking. You do not need to have any musical experience or be able to read music to use this book. It is aimed at your or your kid's first musical experience with a toy musical instrument. Nowadays, toy xylophones are well-tuned and can be used to easily become introduced to the world of music. If you have this specific xylophone (pictured below), you can play all 53 songs. We chose the most popular model on the market, where the C and C8 notes are colored in blue. However, if your model is a little bit different, for example C is red, C8 is white or C and C8 both are red, this book will also work for you. Besides colored circles corresponding to the key color of your small xylophone, there are note letters inside each circle. Just follow the letter and play. Additionally, we have collected very simple and very popular melodies and songs from all over the world to make your musical journey more interesting. We recommended scanning the QR code on each page and listening to the melody and rhythm before playing. This is the most natural method to learn music. Our circles do not show the pitch and duration of notes and rhythmic patterns. Remember, this ebook is for your very first musical instrument. All melodies in this ebook were simplified for a one-octave diatonic xylophone.

  • File Pdf: when-we-all-go-home.pdf

Book Summary:

Paying special attention to chapters 56-66, David Baer analyses the labour that resulted in the Greek Isaiah. He compares the Greek text with extant Hebrew texts and with early biblical versions to show that the translator has approached his craft with homiletical interests in mind. This earliest translator of Isaiah produces a preached text, at the same time modifying his received tradition in theological and nationalistic directions which would reach their full flower in Targumic and Rabbinical literature. In basic agreement with recent work on other portions of the Septuagint, the Greek Isaiah is seen to be an elegant work of Hellenistic literature whose linguistic fluidity expresses the convictions and longings of a deeply Palestinian soul.

Book Summary:

A leading American evangelical minister—whom public figures long turned to for guidance in faith and politics—recounts his three conversions, from childhood Jewish roots to Christianity, from a pure faith to a highly politicized one, and from the religious right to the simplicity of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. Rob Schenck’s extraordinary life has been at the center of the intersection between evangelical Christianity and modern politics. Attacked by partisans on both sides of the aisle, he has been called a "right-wing hate monger," the "ultimate D.C. power-broker," a "traitor" and "turncoat." Now, this influential spiritual adviser to America’s political class chronicles his controversial, sometimes troubling career in this revelatory and often shocking memoir. As a teenager in the 1970s, Schenck converted from Judaism to Christianity and found his calling in public ministry. In the 1980s, he, like his twin brother, became a radical activist leader of the anti-abortion movement. In the wake of his hero Ronald Reagan’s rise to the White House, Schenck became a leading figure in the religious right inside the Beltway. Emboldened by his authority and access to the highest reaches of government, Schenck was a zealous warrior, brazenly mixing ministry with Republican political activism—even confronting President Bill Clinton during a midnight Christmas Eve service at Washington’s National Cathedral. But in the past few years Schenck has undergone another conversion—his most meaningful transition yet. Increasingly troubled by the part he played in the corruption of religion by politics, this man of faith has returned to the purity of the gospel. Like Paul on the Road to Damascus, he had an epiphany: revisiting the lessons of love that Jesus imparted, Schenck realized he had strayed from his deepest convictions. Reaffirming his core spiritual beliefs, Schenck today works to liberate the evangelical community from the oppression of the narrowest interpretation of the gospel, and to urge Washington conservatives to move beyond partisan battles and forsake the politics of hate, fear, and violence. As a preacher, he continues to spread the word of the Lord with humility and a deep awareness of his past transgressions. In this moving and inspiring memoir, he reflects on his path to God, his unconscious abandonment of his principles, and his return to the convictions that guide him. Costly Grace is a fascinating and ultimately redemptive account of one man’s life in politics and faith.

Book Summary:

The Mind Is Sorry The Body Suffers, is Peterson's first collection of poems and drawings. In this work, he searches for simplicity and an understanding of the upper and lower natures of humanity. It is an unique mix of styles covering a vast field of emotions and a balanced perception of concepts and morals. His style uses interesting rhythms, vivid, and intriguing imagery, to the point where you not only want to recite them but be in the words and between them. Note the first poem and how Peterson begins with the blissful naked beauty of, To Love You. You can hear the crumbling leaves and smell a rain storm coming in the spooky Howard. He makes the dull monotony of riding the bus fun and relatable in, Bus Ride and transports you through a weirdly abstract dream in, Grieving at a Memorial. Peterson easy captures the essence of every couples longing for youthful romance and love in, Yellow Rose. Peterson's drawings are as deep as his poems and they offer a raw poignant addition. They appear serene, flow loose, and free, tempting you to explore and contemplate your thoughts as well as your surroundings. This will definitely educate your perception.
