Intimacy

Henri Nouwen

*** 99c ***

 
Is love a possibility within our reach?

“We probably have wondered in our many lonesome moments if there is one corner in this competitive, demanding world where it is safe to be relaxed, to expose ourselves to someone else, and to give unconditionally. It might be very small and hidden. But if this corner exists, it calls for a search through the complexities of our human relationships in order to find it.”
— Henri Nouwen, Intimacy


Writing from his vast experience as a pastoral counselor, Henri Nouwen addresses the basic question, “How can I find a creative and fulfilling intimacy in my relationship with God and my fellow human beings?” He conducts a rich and insightful exploration into the balance between intimacy and distance, the problems in trying to develop lasting and productive relationships on all levels. Intimacy is an essential resource for anyone struggling to grasp the profound implications of this most basic human needs.

1984

George Orwell

the Audiobook for only $7.49!!!

 
“It is probable that no other work of this generation has made us desire freedom more earnestly or loathe tyranny with such fullness.” –Mark Shorer, New York Times, 1949

In George Orwell’s iconic and prophetic masterpiece, “1984,” a haunting vision of a dystopian future unfolds. Set in a world dominated by the all-seeing eye of Big Brother, the story follows Winston Smith, a lowly Party member whose very thoughts are scrutinized. As the Party manipulates history and suppresses truth, Winston’s yearning for individuality and connection pushes him into a daring dance on the edge of rebellion.


A cautionary tale as relevant today as it was upon its publication, “1984” is a chilling reminder of the dangers of unchecked power and the importance of defending the sanctity of thought and expression. Orwell’s searing prose and visionary storytelling combine to create a timeless work that continues to challenge, inspire, and provoke introspection.

★ Publishers Weekly starred review

“A superior volume on Christian antiracism.”–Publishers Weekly


Racism is omnipresent in American life, both public and private. We are immersed in what prominent faith leader Willie Dwayne Francois III calls white noise–the racist speech, ideas, and policies that lull us into inaction on racial justice. White noise masks racial realities and prevents constructive responses to microaggressions, structural inequality, and overt interpersonal racism.

“John Hope Franklin’s Reconstruction: After the Civil War fills this yawning gap [in scholarship of this period] and with notable balance and judicious temper, tells an old story in a new light. . . . Franklin makes good his contentions at every point and provides a sorely needed restatement of what scholars now know about Reconstruction.”
― New York Times


“[John Hope] Franklin used intellect and patience to surmount the barriers thrust in his way and went on to become one of the preeminent historians of his time.”
― U.S. News and World Report
