The New York Times bestselling author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything turns his attention to the relationship between LBTGQ Catholics and the Church in this loving, inclusive, and revolutionary book. On the day after the Orlando nightclub shooting, James Martin S.J. appeared in a video on Facebook in which he called for solidarity with our LGBTQ brothers and sisters. "The largest mass shooting in US history took place at a gay club and the LGBTQ community has been profoundly affected" he began. He then implored his fellow Catholics-and people everywhere-to "stand not only with the people of Orlando but also with their LGBTQ brothers and sisters. . . . Sadly of all the US Catholic bishops who expressed their condolences after the shooting, only one that I know . . . made any explicit reference to the LGBT community." A powerful call for tolerance, acceptance, and support—and a reminder of Jesus' message for us to love one another—Father Martin's post went viral and was viewed more than 1,6 million times. Now, Martin expands on his reflections in this moving and inspiring book, offering a powerful, loving, and much-needed voice in a time marked by anger, prejudice, and divisiveness. Adapted from a talk he gave to New Ways Ministry, a group that ministers to and advocates for LGBT Catholics, Building a Bridge provides a roadmap for repairing and strengthening the bonds that unite all of us as God's children. Martin uses the image of a two-way bridge for LGBTQ Catholics and the Church to come together in a call to end the "us" versus "them" mentality. Turning to the Catechism, he draws on the three criteria at the heart of the Christian ministry—respect, compassion, and sensitivity—as a model for how the Catholic Church should relate to the LGBT community.

Unity. Jesus prayed that his followers would experience it. The apostles worked hard to achieve and maintain it. Christians today rarely enjoy it. God's desire is for our churches, marriages, families, and interpersonal relationships to be characterized by unity and agreement. But all too often, strife and discord prevail instead-why? Because we fail to realize that our differences-be they doctrinal debates, generational clashes, or other personal preferences-don't have to create division. Unity and unison are two entirely different things. The key to practicing biblical unity is to "build a bridge and get over it!" Drawing insight from key passages of Scripture as well as years of leading a dynamic and diverse congregation, this author explains in very practical ways how we can improve our relationships and deal constructively with our differences and disagreements as followers of Christ. Paul Earl Sheppard has been senior pastor of Abundant Life Christian Fellowship in Mountain View, California since 1989. Under Paul's visionary leadership, this church has become one of the largest and most racially diverse congregations in northern California. He serves as speaker for Enduring Truth, a popular daily radio program heard on stations and networks around the country. A native of Philadelphia, Paul has studied at the University of Pennsylvania, the Center for Urban Theological Studies, and the Southern California School of Ministry. He holds a Master's degree in Ministry and a Doctorate of Divinity. Paul sits on the board of directors of NRB (National Religious Broadcasters) and is a highly sought after speaker and conference leader. He was married to his wife, Meredith, in May 1982. They have two adult children, Alicia and Aaron.

At a time when we are reexamining our values, reeling from the pace of change, witnessing the clash between good instincts and "pragmatism," dealing with the angst of a new millennium, Neil Postman, one of our most distinguished observers of contemporary society, provides for us a source of guidance and inspiration. In Building a Bridge to the Eighteenth Century he revisits the Enlightenment, that great flowering of ideas that provided a humane direction for the future -- ideas that formed our nation and that we would do well to embrace anew. He turns our attention to Goethe, Voltaire, Rousseau, Diderot, Kant, Edward Gibbon, Adam Smith, Thomas Paine, Jefferson, and Franklin, and to their then-radical thinking about inductive science, religious and political freedom, popular education, rational commerce, the nation-state, progress, and happiness. Postman calls for a future connected to traditions that provide sane authority and meaningful purpose -- as opposed to an overreliance on technology and an increasing disregard for the lessons of history. And he argues passionately for specific new guidelines in the education of our children, with renewed emphasis on developing the intellect as successfully as we are developing a computer-driven world. Witty, provocative, and brilliantly reasoned, Building a Bridge to the Eighteenth Century is Neil Postman's most radical, and most commonsensical, book yet. From the Hardcover edition.

The irony of this book is to show that fifty years after the 1963 civil rights movement, blacks are still experiencing the same types of problems they experienced in 1963. She talks about how as a college administrator she experienced some of the same types of situations she experienced thirty years earlier when she worked in the motion picture industry at Warner Brothers Studios. In her book, she talks about the Jim Crow laws and the Stand Your Ground laws. She also talks about President Obama's challenges in becoming the first black president of the United States and his reelection. Her primary point is that there has not been enough change in the area of racial equality in the last fifty years.
