MY LIFE: A Story of Resilience and Love is a memoir that celebrates the beauty of how much self-expression resides in each of us. It is an uncommon saga of unique depth that tracks eight transformative decades, beginning with circumstances that dare the imagination and that became a personal marker for Tom Delebo. From childhood, Tom put his dreams into action with fearless individualism, expressing himself in one endeavor after another, a blueprint for how to live an engaged life. He would learn, too, that fueling his relentless drive was a profound quest for personal connection and love. It has been quite the ride.

"Excepting Lala Lajpat Raiji, the land of the five rivers has not produced in modern history a nobler Indian Patriot, a more devoted worker in the cause of the political freedom of Hindusthan, our Father Land and our Holy Land, while in suffering and sacrifice none who could be compared with him. "Many there be who join a great cause when it is victorious and paying; a few there are who join in the fight for it when chances of ultimate victory are not out of sight; but scarcely one in a million is found who refuses to budge an inch and continues the fight for an ideal single-handed and alone even when all is lost and all have either forsaken or betrayed. A Rana Pratap at Chittore, a Bhau Sahab Peshwa at Panipat! It is they who are the standard-bearers of a Nation, a Race, a Religion and it is when drenched in their blood that the Despair of a people is reborn as a Hope in the next generation. Their immediate defeat and death assure the life and victory of a Race. Of such a mettle as that is Bhai Parmananda fashioned." —Swatantryavir Vinayak D. Savarkar

This is a detailed, clear, simple, and interesting academic and intellectual trip into neuron, axons, synapses, and their bases in memory formation and learning. The author goes after the origin of his first primordial memory in an attempt to find and nurture his own identity and personality. Memories can be categorized as working memory, short-term memory, and long-term memory. In addition, we have conscious, unconscious, toxic, automatic, and uncategorized memory, such as adoptive memory in the immune system—puzzling but challenging memory during matching nucleotides and amino acids. T-cells memory recognize, identify, and destroy pathogens among billions of cells, genes, and proteins packaging for self-protection and function. Long-term unconscious memory is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to cognitive memory. Further exploring his initial objective—the primordial memory—the author encounters the electrical and chemical reactions coming under the domain of genes without ignoring DNA. Last but not least is memory of love, from birth till death. It is encoded in a memory that encompasses my whole body.

The Bible teaches that the goal of the Christian life is to become like Jesus—for our own personal growth and for the sake of others. Every believer needs to ask three big questions: What do I believe? What should I do? And who am I becoming? In Think, Act, Be Like Jesus, bestselling author and pastor Randy Frazee helps readers grasp the vision of the Christian life and get started on the journey of discipleship. After unfolding the revolutionary dream of Jesus and showing how our lives fit into the big picture of what God is doing in the world, Frazee walks readers through thirty short chapters exploring the ten core beliefs, ten core practices, and ten core virtues that help disciples to think, act, and be more like Jesus Christ. This compelling new book can be used in conjunction with the 30-week all-church Believe campaign or read separately as an individual study. Either way, readers will deepen their understanding of what it means to not just know the Story of God, but to live it.

"Starts off as a manifesto but becomes richer and more suggestive as it develops."—The New York Sun For Wallace Stevens, "Poetry is the scholar's art." Susan Howe—taking the poet-scholar-critics Charles Olson, H.D., and William Carlos Williams (among others) as her guides—embodies that art in her 1985 My Emily Dickinson (winner of the Before Columbus Foundation Book Award). Howe shows ways in which earlier scholarship had shortened Dickinson's intellectual reach by ignoring the use to which she put her wide reading. Giving close attention to the well-known poem, "My Life had stood—a Loaded Gun," Home tracks Dickens, Browning, Emily Brontë, Shakespeare, and Spenser, as well as local Connecticut River Valley histories, Puritan sermons, captivity narratives, and the popular culture of the day. "Dickinson's life was language and a lexicon her landscape. Forcing, abbreviating, pushing, padding, subtracting, riddling, interrogating, re-writing, she pulled text from text...."
