A beautiful piece of literature by a great saint of the church. St. John of the Cross was a man in search of Christ, a true follower of the ways of God. By only simple observation, it seems that his entire life was swallowed up in the glory and majesty of God, and we have the great privilege of peering into that relationship through his written works. This is a book describing the search of a lovesick soul for her wonderful bridegroom. A truly remarkable spring for anyone desiring a deeper life with God. May you be blessed as you listen to this book! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert J. Shaw. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/088322/bk_acx0_088322_sample.mp3.

Cassandra Speaks (eBook, ePUB)
14,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

What story would Eve have told about picking the apple? Why is Pandora blamed for opening the box? And what about the fate of Cassandra who was blessed with knowing the future but cursed so that no one believed her? What if women had been the storytellers? Elizabeth Lesser believes that if women's voices had been equally heard and respected throughout history, humankind would have followed different hero myths and guiding stories—stories that value caretaking, champion compassion, and elevate communication over vengeance and violence. Cassandra Speaks is about the stories we tell and how those stories become the culture. It's about the stories we still blindly cling to, and the ones that cling to us: the origin tales, the guiding myths, the religious parables, the literature and films and fairy tales passed down through the centuries about women and men, power and war, sex and love, and the values we live by. Stories written mostly by men with lessons and laws for all of humanity. We have outgrown so many of them, and still they endure. This book is about what happens when women are the storytellers too—when we speak from our authentic voices, when we flex our values, when we become protagonists in the tales we tell about what it means to be human. Lesser has walked two main paths in her life—the spiritual path and the feminist one—paths that sometimes cross but sometimes feel at cross-purposes. Cassandra Speaks is her extraordinary merging of the two. The bestselling author of Broken Open and Marrow, Lesser is a beloved spiritual writer, as well as a leading feminist thinker. In this book she gives equal voice to the cool water of her meditative self and the fire of her feminist self. With her trademark gifts of both humor and insight, she offers a vision that transcends the either/or ideologies on both sides of the gender debate. Brilliantly structured into three distinct parts, Part One explores how history is carried forward through the stories a culture tells and values, and what we can do to balance the scales. Part Two looks at women and power and expands what it means to be courageous, daring, and strong. And Part Three offers "A Toolbox for Inner Strength.” Lesser argues that change in the culture starts with inner change, and that no one—woman or man—is immune to the corrupting influence of power. She provides inner tools to help us be both strong-willed and kind-hearted. Cassandra Speaks is a beautifully balanced synthesis of storytelling, memoir, and cultural observation. Women, men and all people will find themselves in the pages of this book, and will come away strengthened, opened, and ready to work together to create a better world for all people.

Pope & the CEO: John Paul II's Leadership Lesso...

'John Paul II showed me what real leadership looks like. He modeled for me how to pursue our God-given potential. Not coincidentally, this also makes us and those around us better employees, more capable of and more willing to work hard at building a stronger company. That's something that makes both good human sense and good business sense.' —Andrea Widmer Former Swiss Guard, CEO and business leader Andreas Widmer gives a behind-the-scenes look into Pope John Paul II, 'the most authentically human person I've ever met, ' and reveals how those memories shaped and forged his success as a corporate executive. In what papal biographer George Weigel calls 'a powerful example of leadership at work,' Widmer recounts his personal experiences serving Blessed Pope John Paul II in the Swiss Guard, and the secrets of successful leadership that he learned at the feet of the great pope. 'John Paul's influence made me understand that business and faith go together. The free market and Christianity are not opposed to each other but business can be a wonderful school of virtue and faith. Faith and virtue, on the other hand, make a business and the economy truly prosperous. The late pope is a great inspiration and example for business leaders and CEOs. He is for me and I hope he will be for you as well. ' 'Andreas Widmer has given us a true gift by sharing his first-hand experience of Pope JPII's personal habits so that we can incorporate these in our own leadership journey,' says Dr. Carolyn Woo, Dean of the Business School at Notre Dame. This up-close look at the pope's influence raises the bar for leadership to new heights. Christian executives, CEOs, entrepreneurs, small business owners—anyone who wants to avoid mediocrity—will find the lessons Widmer learned and imparts both inspirational and practical. Peter Cardinal Turkson comments that this book is 'an excellent tribute to the memory of [Pope John Paul II] and a commendable guide to successful entrepreneurship.' Widmer learned from the pope that moral leadership doesn't just make a difference for the leaders themselves, but makes a difference for their companies, customers, and teams. Companies, led by a strong, moral leader, says Widmer, also have a proven track record of performing better in the long run. 'Andreas' insights from daily life with a great man like John Paul II drives home the point that business decisions can be made from purely human motives OR with God's inspiration for us and for our work. The anecdotes and insights make The Pope & The CEO a worthwhile read,' says Claire Huang, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. The Pope & The CEO offers nine chapters of stories and reflections about John Paul II and practical applications connecting those teachings to the world of business, big or small, and to anyone wanting to lead a team of people in today's world. Published by Emmaus Road, this is a first of its kind look into the life of a Swiss Guard and what he learned from perhaps the greatest Christian of our time. Widmer's observation of John Paul II, and his direct experience of the late pope's approach to leadership, had a profound impact on the way he sees the centrality of human interaction: 'When you were with the Holy Father, you felt like you were the reason he got up in the morning.'

Letters to Peter
44,90 CHF *

Description: ''Dad. I've got very, very, very bad news. Peter was killed tonight . . .'' With that middle-of-the-night phone call, life for the Mayer family plunged from ''best-ever year'' to months and years of dealing with the oppressive presence of Peter's unending absence. A letter from his father to the freshly deceased Peter, intended for the memorial service, became the first in a torrent of letters from his dad to Peter, though which his dad poured out agonized and angry grief. In the letters, Peter's dad laments the way events otherwise beautiful for Peter's wife, five-year-old daughter, and the rest of the family are relentlessly punctuated with the pain of the loss. ''Dammit, Peter, why didn't you . . .?'' Ultimately, slowly, the letters begin to reflect on the strange mystery of healing. How is it that in spite of the pain, in spite of the unending loss, comfort does come, opening the way once again for unbelievably deep joy? ''It was all so rich and beautiful that with a certain private touch, and exchange of glance, your mom and I signaled an agreement . . . slipped to our cave . . . with playful freedom and deep gratitude.'' So for Peter's dad, the confirmation of the odd observation from Jesus: ''How blessed are those who grieve!'' Endorsements: ''So how does a minister address the sudden, potentially faith-shattering loss of his adult son, Peter? I wondered . . . In each letter, I heard the soulful humanness of grief calling out. Letters to Peter affirmed and expanded my understanding of the mysterious and expansive nature of faith and of God. The religious and theological underpinnings became universal and philosophical in probing for meaning. What an extraordinary relationship evolves through these letters . . . Father and son become one.'' --Molly Greist stone sculptor, bereaved parent ''These poignant letters testify to the great affection between a father and son. Mayer's plaintive cry of ''how could you?'' points up the apparent senselessness of the sudden death of a young person. His lamentation echoes some of the great biblical sorrows down through the centuries. The letters will be of particular help to all those suffering grief and loss, no matter what the circumstances.'' --Patrick Howell SJ Rector, Jesuit Community, Seattle University Former dean of the School of Theology and Ministry About the Contributor(s): Donald E. Mayer is a retired minister of the United Church of Christ, advisory board chair, and adjunct faculty for the School of Theology and Ministry, Seattle University.

Dance of the Dryad Dream
73,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Mother Earth takes on human form as Mother Nature to walk among us in observation of how mankind cares for and how wisely he uses the bounty of natural resources she has blessed him with. Mankind, being a product of creation is therefore under her charge along with all the flora and fauna that exists upon the earth. Things haven't been going so well these days and man has fallen into a cycle of waste and abuse that threatens the health of every organism that lives. Although Mother Nature has provided many warning signs, man has become complacent and self-centered, ignoring that he has become a threat to even his own existence. Mother Earth can heal herself and evolve, but at what cost? A mother will always try to protect her offspring from bringing harm upon themselves through intervention. She now calls upon the dark creatures of the Dreaming to come forth to give mankind one final chance to change the error of his ways. Man must be made to see the devastation he brings upon lives unseen, but from a different angle, so that he may see what lies ahead in his own future. A select number of Dryads have been called upon to leave their sacred trees in an effort to enlist mankind in a universal effort to not only save himself, but repair the damage that he has brought upon nature. If he refuses to do so, he will suffer the ultimate and immediate consequences.
