This book is about a profile in courage. This young man thought the sky was the limit. He wanted to fly an airplane. This feat was easier said than done. Louis had to negotiate his way into college before he joined the US Navy. Then, he had to find a way to get into flight school. After finishing flight school, he found that he had to fight a war in Vietnam. Now, you might think that his exploits would end. However, his superiors decided that Louie should teach flight school. He took the gig with caution because of its immense responsibility. Then, his superiors rewarded him with the commission of Rear admiral in charge of an aircraft carrier. While he was in Portugal, Louie met and married a young Portuguese girl. When his tour of duty ended, this retired sailor climbed one of the highest mountains in the world. Life didn't beat him, cancer did. Louie died in the year 2000.

In 2017, Edmund Platt aka The English Snail embarked on an 8,000 km hitchhike around France to pick up the trash that 1 in 3 French people chuck from their cars every day. Hellbent on making some noise about the disastrous littering problem, the plastic suffocating our oceans and our broken consumer society, Eddie's message is honest, ultra-powerful, and full of home truths. Highly anticipated by the media and fans alike, his first book details the nitty-gritty life on the road in the land of frog’s legs and garlic breath. With nothing but a backpack, litter-picker and healthy thirst for beer, his three-month journey will change the way you look at life and maybe even your priorities. Time isn't money, it's much more ****ing valuable than that! This book is a human rollercoaster adventure laced with twists and turns that anyone can relate to. Rich in spontaneity, amusing and eye-opening, The Englishman Who Wanted to Clean France is the ultimate slap in the face and kick-start we could all use during these contagious times.

View: 408

A detailed piece of research into the continuing story of African religion and the evolving story of Christianity; a study of the Kasena Christians of northern Ghana whose first contact with Christianity occurred within the present century, and who revealed no acceptance of it until its second half. The author describes the background of Kasena society and family life, traditional beliefs and thought, mechanisms for resolving crises and personal problems, and natural environment. Her narrative traces the stages of the coming of the whites, conversion, Christian thought and action amongst the Kasena, and the emerging characteristics of what became a distinctly non-European model of Christianity. It winds up with a discussion about the implications of the Kasena experience for the gospels and theology, and for the conversion of other peoples. The author, anthropologist, and Senior Research Fellow at the Akrofi-Christaller Memorial Centre for Mission Research and Applied Theology in Ghana, lived and worked amongst the Kasena people in northern Ghana from 1981 to 1990. She reproduces here many of her first hand experiences: photographs, interviews, experiences of conversion, indigenous prayers and hymn texts, many of which are transcribed in full as appendices.
