Consolations of Philosophy Penguin
Alain de Botton, best-selling author of How Proust can Change Your Life, has set six of the finest minds in the history of philosophy to work on the problems of everyday life. Here then are Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche on some of the things that bother us all; lack of money, the pain of love, inadequacy, anxiety, the fear of failure and the pressure to conform.
When Camels Slide Down Doors Do You Tell the Neighbors? Westbow Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
" Journey with a Boomer couple accepting the mission of caring for one parent with dementia, only to end up with two parents with dementia, mixed with a healthy blend of OCD, paranoia, and Parkinson's. The intense darkness of such a dynamic at times also makes for a releasing humor. Poignant stories tell the tales, while the focus remains on how, when the Teacher designs the syllabus, the classroom experience will reach the heart. Over 30 humbling lessons (most in hindsight) about mission, mercy, faith, fatigue, keys and cars, time, toothpaste, amazement, awe, earthsuits, and more are set into an eternal perspective. What was the most humbling lesson of all? Come along with Rick and Martha and discover the most important one for yourself. Aging certainly has its problems. We lose lots of things like teeth, sight, hearing, knees, hips, and sleep to name a few. However, the costliest loss of all is our memory. Caregivers and family members must take the time to read 'When Camels Slide Down Doors...' It will come to be your manual, your friend, your source of inspiration and encouragement. Your relationship with God and each family member will be enriched. DR. HANS E. JOSEPHSEN, DMin, ThD, PhD. Christian Counselor The Traders' seven-year journey through the many stages of caring for their elderly parents and their passage through dementia is a lesson in life, love, and faith. The narrative of Ann and Winston's story rivals the tellings of Philip Roth. When you infuse such a heartfelt tale with scriptural passages and the calling to ministry that Rick and Martha embody, you are presented with a rare and unique book that will change the way you view the challenges life presents. I heartily endorse 'When Camels Slide Down Doors...' MICHAEL J READINGER, President & CEO, The Council for Health & Human Service Ministries, United Church of Christ True to life, 'When Camels Slide Down Doors...' recounts the creative ways the authors overcame barriers without losing heart, their senses of humor, and most of all their faith in God. This excellent story will prepare readers for the progression through the disease process, as well as the spiritual growth that it fosters in those who care for these loved ones. DR. NINA BEAMAN, EdD, MSN, RN, Dean of Nursing, Author As a professional who trains chaplains, therapists, and caregivers, I enjoyed reading 'Camels...' It is a delightful, at times emotional, personal read which will leave you laughing, sometimes on the edge of tears, and always ready to turn the page. DR. DOUG DICKENS, Professor of Pastoral Care and Counseling, Gardner-Webb University/School of Divinity "
Odyssey Resource Publications (CA)

Is there an answer for suffering? Sometimes suffering is explicable, sometimes inscrutable, but even when there are no answers, there are responses. The Odyssey outlines one family's journey when their five-year-old daughter suffered a severe brain injury from viral encephalitis. Along the way, The Odyssey explores biblical responses to suffering, including laments, Job's suffering, faith healing, the devil, natural evil, discipleship, the ways God's glory may be revealed in suffering, and how we can bear each other's burdens. The Odyssey is not an easy path through suffering but an open and honest account of struggles buoyed by Jesus's presence, reflecting the love and pain experienced in God's pursuit. ""Joe Gonnella invites us into a spiritual odyssey with his daughter's life-changing brain injury. He finds 'markers for the journey' in the Biblical words of Job, the Psalms, the writings of Paul, and the teachings of Jesus . . . It is a story of faith told without pretense. As a pastor I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a studied and thoughtful guide for their own journeys into life's inevitable questions of 'Why?' and 'How?'"" --Rory Swenson, Lead Pastor, Advent United Methodist Church, Eagan, Minnesota ""Joseph Gonnella's daughter, Sarah, was a healthy, quiet little girl. Then suddenly, at age five, she ended up on life support and suffered brain damage. She was left thereafter with profound disabilities. Through The Odyssey, Sarah's story is woven together with Joseph's exploration of theology, the Bible, and suffering. This is a fascinating, head-and-heart personal account of ongoing faith even in the midst of a major lifelong challenge."" --Duane Paetznick, Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church, Apple Valley, Minnesota Joseph Gonnella is retired following a career as a bond lawyer in private and public practice. He lives with his wife and dog in the Twin Cities area and spends his time tutoring and writing amid more frivolous pursuits.
Letters to Another Room Renaissance Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This is a beautiful translation by John Farndon (with Olga Nakston) of the late Ravil Bukharaev's literary existential masterpiece that seeks to reconcile his Muslim faith with the pursuit of his ideals and his search of self and understanding of life, particularly his notions of 'authenticity' which although conflicted by it as a person and human being, it is what framed his world view. Throughout their long marriage, the poets Ravil Bukharaev and Lydia Grigorieva have written in separate rooms in their home. In this deeply felt and poetic memoir, Ravil writes to Lydia to explain at last things left unsaid in their great love for each other. With immense honesty and insight, he explores how their journey together has been shaped by his profound Muslim beliefs and his lifelong search for what is authentic and true. Along the way, he creates beautiful and moving vignettes of eight very different people struggling to find meaning in their life, from old Elizaveta Osipovna, alone in her Moscow flat, to proud Arzhana coping with a tough life in the Altai mountains. The honesty and transparency informing this epistolary novel-essay is at times both stunning and stupendous. In the author's own words, here is 'an attempt by a man to have it out with his loved one, which is all the more difficult in view of the most vital and crucial condition of such an exchange - complete and total sincerity'. Ravil Bukharaev was a celebrated writer, poet and scholar of religious, cultural and political history of his native Tatarstan and author of over thirty books.
