This book offers practical advice on how to cultivate love, how to deepen it, and how to let it flower in our lives.

How can we develop greater self-acceptance and self-compassion? Meditation teacher Moh Hardin offers key insights and practices from the Buddhist tradition for deepening our relationships and finding true fulfillment in our lives. Topics include: • Simple Buddhist practices for awakening the heart • How and why to become your own best friend • Finding freedom from destructive patterns in relationships • Listening and speaking with love • Loving and letting go Hardin ultimately introduces the inspiring idea of becoming a "bodhisattva warrior," a person who commits to living open-heartedly and working to ease the suffering of the world.

Which road are you on for your marriage—yours or God’s? Inspired by the heartwarming movie No Greater Love, executive producer Russ Rice and co-writer and director Brad Silverman have created this 90-day devotional for couples to help husbands and wives dig deeper into the mystery of marriage, addressing what it means to truly love your spouse in the sacrificial and unconditional way God loves us. Each devotion invites couples to keep God at the center of their relationship, to improve their communication skills, and to strengthen their commitment to each other. Topics include commitment, trust, truth, forgiveness, reconciliation, and more. Each devotion offers a real-life snapshot from marriage, questions for discussion, and action points. A couple’s marriage will not be the same after these ninety days. Why? Because there is no greater love between two people than a love grounded in and empowered by God’s love. Foreward by Dennis Rainey. "This book is an action plan for having the kind of marriage that stands strong when the storms of life come. A marriage that provides your family with a stable, healthy home. And above all else, a marriage that honors and glorifies God." --Dennis Rainey, President, FamilyLife

The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis

A New Reading of the 1441 Latin Autograph Manuscript

Author: Thomas (à Kempis),William C. Creasy

The Imitation of Christ has appeared in more editions and in more languages than any other book except the Bible. Samuel Johnson once remarked to Bowell that it “must be a good book, as the world has opened its arms to receive it.” Others have praised it as well, including Thomas Carlyle, George Eliot, Thomas De Quincey, and Matthew Arnold. Among the religious, St. Ignatius Loyola translated it, and Pope John Paul I was said to have been reading it the night that he died. It has been standard fare in religious training and personal devotion for centuries. Yet today, few people know the Imitation and those who do more often than not think it hopelessly out of date, a pre-Vatican II relic, full of contempt for the world and self-loathing. It is a curious state of affairs, and one that reveals more about a contemporary audience's response to the book than it does about the book itself. When a contemporary reader encounters a line such as “this is the highest wisdom: through contempt of the world to aspire to the kingdom of heaven,” his response is a very different one from that of a fifteenth- or nineteenth-century reader. For an “uninformed response” (as Stanley Fish would say) to the contemptus mundi theme, the reader must draw deeply on a vast complex of literary, linguistic, historical, and theological knowledge. Creasy's translation of the Imitation strives to recreate a text that provides an analogous experience to that of the fifteenth-century reader. Relying heavily on reader-response theory, he incorporates an “informed reader's” response into the text itself. Where possible, the text echoes both the deep structure and the surface structure of the Latin—even to the point of replicating sentence structures and rhetorical devices while avoiding any distortion of the reader's experience. Although the language and style of his translation has been crafted for modern readers, the fervor and power of the original text have not been lost. This translation will undoubtedly bring The Imitation of Christ a new generation of readers.

From New York Times bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels comes the first in her LOVE IN THE REGENCY series. Jack Coltrane grew up with his father's red-haired tomboy ward Meredith Fairfax chasing after him, always begging to tag along in his adventures during the years they resided at Coltrane House. Jack was variously annoyed, flattered, and as the years passed and childhood faded, both he and Merry sensed a slow change in their relationship. Friendship, blossoming into love. Love for each other, and a combined love for Coltrane House, fast falling into disrepair by his neglectful father. But one day the estate would be his, and Jack and Merry would make it beautiful again, raise their children there, and live happily ever after. Theirs was the perfect dream, until Jack's father took him aside to tell him something that sent his son fleeing from Coltrane House, away from Merry, perhaps never to return. Ah, love... why is it never easy? Oh...and then there's Jack's quite singular friend from America, and possibly a pair of matchmaking ghosts. Ghosts? Well, certainly - why not? Everyone loves a happy ending! **For a limited time, get two free books from Kasey > bit.ly/kaseymichaels (just copy and paste into your browser)**

"Ein wenig Leben" handelt von der lebenslangen Freundschaft zwischen vier Männern in New York, die sich am College kennengelernt haben. Jude St. Francis, brillant und enigmatisch, ist die charismatische Figur im Zentrum der Gruppe – ein aufopfernd liebender und zugleich innerlich zerbrochener Mensch. Immer tiefer werden die Freunde in Judes dunkle, schmerzhafte Welt hineingesogen, deren Ungeheuer nach und nach hervortreten. "Ein wenig Leben" ist ein rauschhaftes, mit kaum fasslicher Dringlichkeit erzähltes Epos über Trauma, menschliche Güte und Freundschaft als wahre Liebe. Es begibt sich an die dunkelsten Orte, an die Literatur sich wagen kann, und bricht dabei immer wieder zum hellen Licht durch.

For years, I prayed for a closer walk with God. My answer was the Scripture, “to whom much is given, much is required.” Some may view this implied responsibility as a tempting invitation to become complacent, but I beg to differ. In fact, I declared it as His Vision Statement for my family. It’s Godly wisdom to get a vision and make it plain. Therefore, I knew it was a wise decision. I wanted more of Him and no enemy in hell was going to stop me, and He knew it. For this journey to be effective, “The Flesh” had to remain in restraints with the Holy Spirit in possession of the key. During the initial assignment, I quickly learned, there was “No Room for Doubt.” At this level, He put an end to child’s play –or, as we refer to it as, the baby Christian stage, and opened the door to grown folks business. Proper ID was required of me to enter this level, and upon entrance, per Him, my beauty would be my weapon and the words out of my mouth were His prophesy. More often than I can recall, He sent me on special assignments that were to take place for, “Forty Days and Forty Nights” with very strict rules. To activate each assignment, I had to, “Heed, Discern and Respond” to His voice. As I continued on my journey- and reached a point where I needed more, as promised, He blessed me with a fresh anointing along with an elevation in both the Spiritual and the natural. As you will see, God gave me specific directions to reach true intimacy with Him. As I share with you some of my journey, I invite you to take Him out the box and seek His intimate place and purpose for your life so that He’s able to give you specific instructions for your life as well.

But that's just what happened. She married the baby's father, Anthony Stevens, a handsome, hotshot hustler whose idea of having it all is to do just that-have it all. It was the beginning of a tumultuous journey that would test her faith and prove that there is No Greater Love than God's love for His people. Trina gave birth to twin daughters, Miracle "Mimi" and Angel. Angel was sweet and humble like their mother while Mimi was tough and headstrong. Life with her husband Anthony was trying. He was away most of the time nights, his alibi being work. Little did Trina know that her husband was involved in shady business and was having an affair with another woman. What will happen when the truth comes out? Trina struggles to keep her family together as the twins are stained by their father's sins and their faith wavers. Through all of life's trials, she remains vigilant in her faith and prayers, wanting only to protect her family. In the end, there is no greater love than the love of a mother and the love of God for His people. Readers can witness the dramatic events unfold in Katherine Scriven's No Greater Love.
