    by Dr. Jeff Brodsky
    Since he was a child, Jeff Brodsky has wept for the downtrodden and mistreated.

Jeff's remarkable journey has wound from the slums of Bangladesh to the dumps of Cambodia to ... more
  • Listen to Your Mother!

    by Marianne Spampinato

Chances are your mom (or dad) has said one or more of these sayings. Take a trip down memory lane with the author's humorous and heartfelt recollections of guidance... more
  • our road to adoption 'the story of our family and the great family of God'

    by Earl D Robinson
    The book chronicles our adoption process which spanned many years and the Atlantic as Americans living in the UK. During the whole process I blogged and the book is a combination of the blog, reflection and Biblical perspective of family and adoption. Our path to adoption was a long and winding one. It was full of excitement, amazing news and quick moving decisions. It was also fraught with difficulty, waiting and at times sadness. We were never alone in the quest, our families, churches and... more
  • Examined Lives

    by Roberta Reb Allen

  • Haloes are for Show-Offs: revised second edition

    by Richard Holeman
    "He travels fastest who travels alone." In my time on the road, I came to believe so much in that wise old idiom that it became the core of my code. I didn’t pair up with other tramps, except a few times in the earliest days of my travels. "Carry no money belt, no bag, no shoes; and greet no one on the way." That one's from the Bible and it's good advice. I kept to myself as much as I could, on the road and in the fields and forests where I camped, but when I woke one morning to find... more

  • The Bible II

    by Kevin Reichelt
    This book is a modern day faith based on understanding that we are consciousness and we are part of the great consciousness. There are two points to be made: This consciousness is a cloud. Jesus prophecies that he 'returns with the clouds'. As a consciousness we understand that without us, God is without, and if enough of 'the parts' of a body become without, the body as a whole no longer exists. So God is us, therefore we are God. Point two is this: it is our life purpose to become a pure enoug... more
  • Hymns I Want at my Funeral—in case I go before telling you

    by William Armitage
    I’ve enjoyed amazing grace all my life. I’m just not sure I want it played at my funeral. The hymn that is. I guess if someone insists on it behind my back on the day there won’t be much I can do about it. But it is a bit of cliché now, don’t you think? Don’t get me wrong. Amazing Grace is lovely. It has brought tears to my eyes at many a funeral. And I seem to be going to them with increasing frequency these days. My friends keep dying. Everyone I know now seems to be someone I knew. T... more
