The Way of Discernment: Spiritual Practices for Decision Making Audiobook

The Way of Discernment: Spiritual Practices for Decision Making

Author: Elizabeth Liebert Narrator: Pam Ward Release Date: May 2020

We all make decisions constantly-some with careful reflection, some without much thought. But what if we understood these decisions, minor as well as major, as matters of faithful Christian living? In this helpful and encouraging book, Elizabeth Liebert introduces the practice of discernment and guides listeners through the process of faithful decision making. Following the way of discernment means becoming increasingly able to notice where God is at work in the world and in one's own life-and becoming increasingly generous with one's own life in response. After briefly exploring the Christian tradition of discernment, Liebert then turns to practical steps and exercises that will help listeners as they seek God's call in the midst of their decisions, allowing listeners to internalize some of these practices and incorporate them into their daily lives.

A Prayer for Orion: A Son’s Addiction and a Mother’s Love Audiobook

A Prayer for Orion: A Son’s Addiction and a Mother’s Love

Author: Katherine James Narrator: Pam Ward Release Date: April 2020

It’s always somebody else’s kid―until it’s yours. When Katherine James and her husband found out their son was using heroin, their responses ran the gamut: disbelief, anger, helplessness, guilt. As they struggled to come to grips with their son’s addiction and decide how best to help him, their home became a refuge for an unlikely assortment of their son’s friends, each with their own story, drawn by the simple love and acceptance they found there―“the Lost Boys,” James calls them. In this sensitive, vulnerable memoir, award-winning novelist James turns her lush prose to a new purpose: to tell her family’s story through the twists and turns of her son’s addiction, overdose, and slow recovery. The result is not just a look at the phenomenon of drug abuse in suburban America, but also a meditation on the particular anguish of loving a wayward child and clinging to a desperate trust in God’s providence through it all.

Death in Slow Motion: A Memoir of a Daughter, Her Mother, and the Beast Called Alzheimer's Audiobook

Death in Slow Motion: A Memoir of a Daughter, Her Mother, and the Beast Called Alzheimer's

Author: Eleanor Cooney Narrator: Pam Ward Release Date: February 2020

When her once-glamorous and witty novelist-mother got Alzheimer's, Eleanor Cooney moved her from her beloved Connecticut home to California in order to care for her. In tense, searing prose, punctuated with the blackest of humor, Cooney documents the slow erosion of her mother's mind, the powerful bond the two shared, and her own descent into drink and despair. But the coping mechanism that finally serves this eloquent writer best is writing, the ability to bring to vivid life the memories her mother is losing. As her mother gropes in the gathering darkness for a grip on the world she once loved, succeeding only in conjuring sad fantasies of places and times with her late husband, Cooney revisits their true past. Death in Slow Motion becomes the mesmerizing story of Eleanor's actual childhood, straight out of the pages of John Cheever; the daring and vibrant mother she remembers; and a time that no longer exists for either of them.

Stewards of Eden: What Scripture Says About the Environment and Why It Matters Audiobook

Stewards of Eden: What Scripture Says About the Environment and Why It Matters

Author: Sandra L. Richter Narrator: Pam Ward Release Date: February 2020

Sandra L. Richter cares about the Bible. She also cares about the environment. Using her expertise in ancient Israelite society and economy as well as in biblical theology, Richter walks listeners through passages familiar and not-so-familiar, showing how significant environmental theology is in the Bible's witness. She then calls Christians to apply that message to today's environmental concerns. Richter is a master Bible scholar. Each chapter in this timely book draws out a biblical mandate about care for the land, for domestic and wild animals, for people at the margins, and more. She is also a master storyteller. Well informed on the most significant challenges to present-day environmental stewardship, Richter includes case studies connecting modern day examples and Scripture. Though current political values may tempt listeners to separate or even polarize Christian faith and ecological concerns, Richter urges us to be driven by God's values instead.

Debunking Howard Zinn: Exposing the Fake History That Turned a Generation against America Audiobook

Debunking Howard Zinn: Exposing the Fake History That Turned a Generation against America

Author: Mary Grabar Narrator: Pam Ward Release Date: November 2019

Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States has sold more than 2.5 million copies. It is pushed by Hollywood celebrities, defended by university professors who know better, and assigned in high school and college classrooms to teach students that American history is nothing more than a litany of oppression, slavery, and exploitation. Zinn's history is popular, but it is also massively wrong. Scholar Mary Grabar exposes just how wrong in her stunning new book Debunking Howard Zinn, which demolishes Zinn's Marxist talking points that now dominate American education. In Debunking Howard Zinn, you'll learn, contra Zinn: How Columbus was not a genocidal maniac, and was, in fact, a defender of IndiansWhy the American Indians were not feminist-communist sexual revolutionaries ahead of their timeHow the United States was founded to protect liberty, not white males' ill-gotten wealthWhy Americans of the "Greatest Generation" were not the equivalent of Nazi war criminalsHow the Viet Cong were not well-meaning community leaders advocating for local self-ruleWhy the Black Panthers were not civil rights leadersGrabar also reveals Zinn's bag of dishonest rhetorical tricks: his slavish reliance on partisan history, explicit rejection of historical balance, and selective quotation of sources to make them say the exact opposite of what their authors intended. If you care about America's past-and our future-you need this book.

No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age Audiobook

No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age

Author: Jane F. Mcalevey Narrator: Pam Ward Release Date: October 2019

The crisis of the progressive movement is so evident that nothing less than a fundamental rethinking of its basic assumptions is required. Today's progressives now work for professional organizations more comfortable with the inside game in Washington DC (and capitols throughout the West), where they are outmatched and outspent by corporate interests. In No Shortcuts, Jane McAlevey argues that progressives can win, but lack the organized power to enact significant change, to outlast their bosses in labor fights, and to hold elected leaders accountable. Drawing upon her experience as a scholar and longtime organizer in the student, environmental, and labor movements, McAlevey examines cases from labor unions and social movements to pinpoint the factors that helped them succeed-or fail-to accomplish their intended goals. McAlevey makes a compelling case that the great social movements of previous eras gained their power from mass organizing, a strategy today's progressives have mostly abandoned in favor of shallow mobilization or advocacy. She ultimately concludes that, in order to win, progressive movements need strong unions built from bottom-up organizing strategies that place the power for change in the hands of workers and ordinary people at the community level.
