  • Rock The Road And The Rabbi


    As a lifetime student of scripture, Kathie Lee Gifford has been traveling to Israel since she was 17 years old. She even missed her high school graduation so she could attend the first Jerusalem Conference on Biblical Prophecy in 1971.

    In a continuation of that love for this astounding land of faith, The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi is an examination of a decades-long desire to know more and understand more than the typical Sunday School teaching so prevalent in our churches today.

    With a father who was Jewish, Kathie Lee has always felt what she calls, a deep resonance in my very being for the Jewish people and Land of the Covenant-Israel.

    But it wasn’t until she started studying the original texts in Hebrew and Greek and actually hiking the land herself with teachers who taught the messianic rabbinical way, that she finally began to find what her soul had been longing for.

    Something profound happens when one follows along the ancient paths in the actual places that Jesus taught, healed, lived, died, was resurrected and ascended into Heaven. He is indeed the Rock, the Rabbi whom we follow on the Road, and when we are introduced to the mysteries of the Word by teachers who are actually trained in the ancient rabbinical way, radical transformation begins to renew our hearts and minds.

    As Kathie Lee shares her transformative experience, readers will also be introduced to her teachers on the journey, Ray Vander Laan, Rod Van Solkema, and Rabbi Jason Sobel, a Messianic Jewish Rabbi who has been opening hearts and minds around the world with his historical analysis and eye-opening revelations. The book will include pictures of the actual sites, and stories both old and new of what happened there.

    At the end of each chapter Rabbi Sobel takes the reader even deeper into understanding Hebrew culture, language, and the means of connection that opens up an understanding of faith and heritage like never before.

  • Big Country Cookbook


    Driving into the Big Country, clusters of cactus pads line the road. Mistletoe hangs from the branches of mesquite trees whose leaves provide little shade.

  • Miss Rush Rush


    Ruth leaves her comfortable, settled home in Durban, to live among a tribe of nomads in Uganda. I waved goodbye to my family at Durban airport, and flew to Nairobi. I half-hoped for a miracle mid-air to change me into the super-heroine missionaries are supposed to be. Nothing happened. I got off the plane, the same Ruth Stranex, who had been assessed by my Oxford college as not outstanding. Yet I was facing an outstandingly tough job, only possible with God’s help.

    Ruth has to adapt to the culture of the Pokot people: to their diet of cows’ blood and milk; their cattle-raiding wars; their frenzied search for water-holes. She delivers their babies, treats their malaria and sews up their spear wounds. She cleans up the infected sores left by witchdoctors trying to let out evil spirits. She challenges their goat sacrifices intended to appease an angry god. She tells them about the one sacrifice offered for them by the Lamb of God who is Love.

    Then, without any warning, she is arrested, driven for 2 days, between policewomen with kalashnikovs and locked in a foul cell …..

    You’ll love her frankness and her humour. You’ll wish you had friends like her African Christian friends. You may wish you had a faith like hers.

  • Fleeting Glimpse Of Paradise


    If ever there were an expert in the history, beauty, and overall best places to visit in Hawaii, Craig E. Burgess would be that person. His first visit to the islands was in 1974, the first of forty-one in total!

    Providing a glimpse of Hawaiian culture, history, music, art, and daily lifestyles to the reader, A Fleeting Glimpse of Paradise was inspired by Craig’s time spent with special residents of Hawaii who shared a special Spirit of Aloha during his forty-one visits to the islands. His hope is that during your visit, you spend time with local residents of the islands and talk story with them, rather than simply going there for an Aloha shirt, flower lei, or some other souvenir.

    This beautiful collection of anecdotes, inspired poems, and special stories you can’t get from travel books encourages readers to find ways to conserve the natural beauty of the islands-and to make the very best of their experience in this magical utopia.

  • Faith On The Road


    Millions of people travel every day, for what seem like millions of reasons. Some travel for pleasure, others travel for work and education, and many more travel to find a new job and a better life. In the United States, even those who don’t travel far still frequently find themselves on the move. What can we learn from these different forms of travel? And what can people of faith learn from the Christian and Jewish traditions that took shape on the road? From the exile from Eden to the wanderings of Jesus and his disciples, the story of Scripture is a dynamic narrative of ceaseless movement. Those who let themselves be inspired by this movement, and are willing to learn from others and from mistakes made in the process, are well positioned to make a difference in the world, not only at home but also around the globe.

  • Coffee Tea And Holy Water


    Discover what happens when one young woman travels to find out what Christianity looks like around the world.Coffee, Tea, and Holy Water takes the reader on an armchair tour of Christianity in our world, across borders and over continents. Author Amanda Hudson provides a personal touch with cultural curiosities, profound questions about the nature and practice of faith, as she travels to five countries: Brazil, Wales, Tanzania, China, and Honduras.

    Part reflection, part entertaining travelogue, Coffee Tea, and Holy Water explores everything from each culture’s offer of hospitality to life in a Masaai boma. There are lessons to be learned from other countries that are not visible in our own culture, writes Hudson, Questions that are not our questions. Struggles that are not our normal struggles. And yet, when we look around the throne one day at the nations assembled there, instead of marveling at the diversity, I think we will actually be fascinated by what we all had in common. This is a book about the places we meet, what we share, how we can learn to cross borders (geographical, cultural, personal), and learning that the steps to do so make all the difference.

    Honest, witty, and thought-provoking, these stories come from a young woman raised in the South, who found herself wondering what normal Christianity looked like in other countries.

  • Far Away Places


    There isn’t much on this earth that Roberta Baty wants to do that she hasn’t done. Her philosophy is seek new horizons and you will discover the world. She is an adventurer, always have been and perhaps always will be. There is so much on this earth to do and yet, after a while it becomes limited. It’s not a fancy car, nor clothes, nor shoes; it’s the heart that matters. She has traveled the world in an airplane. She’s ridden a submarine and dived beneath the sea. She’s seen the tallest mountains in the world. She spent a week in the Amazon, in the jungle and on the river. She hasn’t been to outer space yet, but she’s flown high in a hot air balloon. She cuddled with a koala in Australia and necked with a giraffe in Africa. She rode a camel and walked the Wall in China. She also rode an elephant in India. She went up Mt. Nebo to see the Promised Land. She always wanted to do these things, so she did them. Prior years of her life seem like a wisp of smoke. Mere days. The days whisk by now faster than ever. As you get older, you know what she means. She’s had a beautiful life, past and present, but she knows this is just a shadow of what is to come in Heaven. Now she focuses on storing up treasures in the place that is really important. A place where her eighty years here is about sixty minutes there. A place where, even with all her reading, she still knows very little about, except that she is sure she wants to go there. A place where, when people ask her about it, she can only say, Ain’t been there, ain’t done that yet, but I will.

  • Pilgrimage : My Journey To A Deeper Faith In The Land Where Jesus Walked (Reprin


    An Intimate Look at a Bestselling Author’s Journey to Deeper Faith

    The opportunity to tour Israel came at a good time. For months, my life has been a mindless plodding through necessary routine, as monotonous as an all-night shift on an assembly line. Life gets that way sometimes, when nothing specific is wrong but the world around us seems drained of color. Even my weekly worship experiences and daily quiet times with God have felt dry and stale. I’m ashamed to confess the malaise I’ve felt. I have been given so much. Shouldn’t a Christian’s life be an abundant one, as exciting as Christmas morning, as joyful as Easter Sunday?

    With gripping honesty, Lynn Austin shares with readers a private and intimate look at her own struggles with spiritual dryness in a season of loss and unwanted change. As she journeys through Israel, Austin turns to Scripture at each site she visits. Then with a fiction writer’s eye for detail, she seamlessly weaves events and insights from the Word as she finds hope, renewed faith, and a sense of direction for the future.

  • Alaska Days With John Muir


    Westwinds Press

    Samuel Hall Young, a Presbyterian clergyman, met John Muir when the great naturalist’s steamboat docked at Fort Wrangell, in southeastern Alaska, where Young was a missionary to the Stickeen Indians. In Alaska Days with John Muir he describes this 1879 meeting: A hearty grip of the hand and we seemed to coalesce in a friendship which, to me at least, has been one of the very best things in a life full of blessings.

    This book, first published in 1915, describes two journeys of discovery taken in company with Muir in 1879 and 1880. Despite the pleas of his missionary colleagues that he not risk life and limb with that wild Muir, Young accompanied Muir in the exploration of Glacier Bay. Upon Muir’s return to Alaska in 1880, they traveled together and mapped the inside route to Sitka. Young describes Muir’s ability to slide up glaciers, the broad Scotch he used when he was enjoying himself, and his natural affinity for Indian wisdom and theistic religion. From the gripping account of their near-disastrous ascent of Glenora Peak to Young’s perspective on Muir’s famous dog story Stickeen, Alaska Days is an engaging record of a friendship grounded in the shared wonders of Alaska’s wild landscapes.

For the editors of this volume, the edge of the world is not a place of physical remoteness where cell phone coverage runs out, nor is it a region of economic marginality. Instead, it is a place of personal transformation, the point of convergence between students spiritual development and their commitment to global engagement. To help students arrive in such a place, faculty and staff seek holistic approaches to education. In the study abroad context, holistic education emphasizes formation of personal ethics, cultivation of empathy, the creation of deep communities, and commitment to social responsibility. This collection of essays is characterized by the diversity of its voices. The contributors represent a broad range of faith-based institutions and a wide array of academic disciplines. The study abroad programs they describe, scattered across five continents, reflect a variety of models. Gathered into this pioneering collection are essays that theorize about the conjunction of spiritual formation and global engagement, share practices that are currently bearing fruit, and identify potential areas of growth and improvement for the future.

  • Cotton Kingdom : A Travellers Observations On Cotton And Slavery In The Ame


    Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) is best known for designing parks in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Chicago, Boston, and the grounds of the Capitol in Washington. But before he embarked upon his career as the nation’s foremost landscape architect, he was a correspondent for theNew York Times, and it was under its auspices that he journeyed through the slave states in the 1850s. His day-by-day observations-including intimate accounts of the daily lives of masters and slaves, the operation of the plantation system, and the pernicious effects of slavery on all classes of society, black and white-were largely collected in The Cotton Kingdom. Published in 1861, just as the Southern states were storming out of the Union, it has been hailed ever since as singularly fair and authentic, an unparalleled account of America’s peculiar institution.

  • Slavery And Protestant Missions In Imperial Brazil


    Translators’ Introduction



    Chapter I: A Closed Garden Which Wild Animals Cannot Enter: The Implantation Of Protestantism In Brazil

    Chapter II: Contrary To What Many Think, Brazil Is Not An Uncivilized And Barbarous Country: Missionary Strategy

    Chapter III: Slavery Is Like A Thorn That Penetrates The Flesh And Causes Excruciating Pain But Which We Do Not Want To Pull Out, For Fear That The Operation Will Further Increase The Pain: The Institutional Protestant Message And Slavery


    Appendix: The Christian Religion And Its Relation To Slavery

    Additional Info
    I confess: Great is my shame and great is the bewilderment of Christ’s Church in Brazil, upon seeing unbelievers release their slaves out of simple love for humanity, while those who profess faith in the Redeemer of captives fail to break the fetters of impiety nor set the oppressed free! -Eduardo Carlos Pereira (1886)

    In 1888, Brazil was the last nation in the modern west to abolish slavery. Slavery and Protestant Missions in Imperial Brazil is an enlightening look at the role Christianity played in the struggle to abolish slavery in Brazil. Author Jose Carlos Barbosa seeks to explain why Protestant missionaries stationed in Brazil during the nineteenth-century remained silent on the issue of abolition, even after the end of the American Civil War. Barbosa asserts that the missionaries’ first priority was to secure a toehold for Protestantism and that meant not alienating the political and landowning elites of Brazilian society. Also, dominant theological thinking placed spiritual matters over temporal: Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and give to God what is God’s. Making abolition in Brazil a largely secular struggle.

    9: Reconstructing Faith And The Renewal Of Covenant

    Conclusion: Point(s) Of Return

    Additional Info
    Faith Negotiating Loyalties draws readers into the world of Christian faith in South Africa and the question of loyalties in the new post-apartheid state. It carries out its investigation in two parts. Part one examines Christian faith and loyalty during the first nation-building exercise following the South African War, positioning the creation and contestation of three Christianities corresponding to three nationalisms, each of which imagined South Africa in a particular way, shaping faith accordingly. The idea of an undifferentiated South African Christianity gives way to contesting and contested Christianities, nationalism gives way to nationalisms, and faith emerges in tension with and in criticism of these loyalties. Part two discusses the American theologian H. Richard Niebuhr in South Africa. Three kinds of faith in his wittings are set forth: social faith, radial faith, and reconstructing faith. Contextualized within the South African story, Niebuhr’s ideas suggest self and society as constituted by hybridities and suspended in a web of loyalties. Faith Negotiating Loyalties suggests the message for faith in a post-apartheid South Africa is the importance of negotiating covenants which allow for crossings, hybridities, and contestations.
