Whiskey is bitter to swallow and burns pleasantly as it goes down, but has a lasting, powerful effect on listeners. Brothers Andre and Smoker were raised in a cauldron of their parents’ failed marriage and appetite for destruction, and find themselves in the same straits as adults - navigating not only their own marriages, but also their parents’ frequent collision with the law and one another. The family lives in Electric City, Washington, just a few miles south of the Colville Indian Reservation. Fiercely loyal and just plain fierce, they’re bound by a series of darkly comedic and hauntingly violent events: domestic trouble; religious fanaticism; benders punctuated with pauses to dry out that never stick. When a religious zealot takes off with Smoker’s daughter, there’s no question that his brother - who continues doggedly to try and put his life in order - will join him in an attempt to return her. Maybe the venture will break them both beyond repair or maybe it will redeem them. Or perhaps both. Whiskey is an audiobook about two brothers, their parents, and three wrecked marriages, a searching examination of family life at its most distressed - about kinship, failure, enough liquor to get through it all, and ultimately a dark and hard-earned grace. With an authentic literary voice all his own, Bruce Holbert traverses the harsh landscape of America’s northwestern border and finds a family unlike any you’ve met before. 1. Language: English.

Chaos may seem an unlikely source of creativity, but below its senseless surface lies a swirling depth of possibilities. Every person enters a world that is already filled with symbols, meanings, and stories. No-one starts with a blank canvas, rather, we find ourselves thrust into a matrix of narratives. Yet, something truly new is possible amid this chaos. Time is a space in which these stories can be reassembled, reinterpreted, and ordered in a way that gives particular meaning to my life.Our stories can be more than a reflection of reality; they can transform experience, inspire new action, and in so doing, transform our reality. “And the word became flesh”. That is how the gospel of John describes the event in which divine ideas became tangibly real in the person of Jesus. Text, words, and ideas are not meant to remain intangible - they are searching for embodiment.This audiobook is a journey through thousands of years of symbols and narratives that point to the underlying reality of our existence. We follow the development of consciousness through the stories humans have told, beginning with myths that are older than the Scriptures. The biblical text marks a definite progression in human awareness, and within the context of the Bible itself ideas continue to develop.The perspective given here might be new for many, but the aim is to provide more than simply an alternative interpretation of scripture. Rather, I hope to show the connection between the inherent human capacity to create meaning, the depth of the text we have at our disposal, and the measureless gift of the spirit of truth drawing us forward. An inexhaustible mystery lies enfolded in each of us. How it unfolds in your story is an unprecedented unique event. This living narrative reached a crescendo in Jesus. In him, we see the mystery unfolding in flesh and we receive an invitation to share in his consciousness. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andre Rabe, Mary-Anne Rabe.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER"Lucid and wrenching...Forward puts [Wambach's] achievement in context with painful and beautiful candor." -NPR"Forward is the powerful story of an athlete who has inspired girls all over the world to believe in themselves." -Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO, New York Times Bestselling author of Lean In"This is the best memoir I've read by an athlete since Andre Agassi's Open." -Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and TakeAbby Wambach has always pushed the limits of what is possible. At age seven she was put on the boys' soccer team. At age thirty-five she would become the highest goal scorer-male or female-in the history of soccer, capturing the nation's heart with her team's 2015 World Cup Championship. Called an inspiration and "badass" by President Obama, Abby has become a fierce advocate for women's rights and equal opportunity, pushing to translate the success of her team to the real world.As she reveals in this searching memoir, Abby's professional success often masked her inner struggle to reconcile the various parts of herself: ferocious competitor, daughter, leader, wife. With stunning candor, Abby shares her inspiring and often brutal journey from girl in Rochester, New York, to world-class athlete. Far more than a sports memoir, Forward is gripping tale of resilience and redemption-and a reminder that heroism is, above all, about embracing life's challenges with fearlessness and heart.
Breytenbach's first visit to South Africa, after thirteen years in exile, is more than just a dazzling travelogue. He is searching for a 'paradise' that coincides with the geography, mysticism, and mythologies of Africa, but in reality his homeland is an often hellish region of racial discrimination and bigotry. Introduction by Andre Brink. Translated by Rike Vaughan.
#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER Far more than a superb memoir about the highest levels of professional tennis, Open is the engrossing story of a remarkable life. Andre Agassi had his life mapped out for him before he left the crib. Groomed to be a tennis champion by his moody and demanding father, by the age of twenty-two Agassi had won the first of his eight grand slams and achieved wealth, celebrity, and the game's highest honors. But as he reveals in this searching autobiography, off the court he was often unhappy and confused, unfulfilled by his great achievements in a sport he had come to resent. Agassi writes candidly about his early success and his uncomfortable relationship with fame, his marriage to Brooke Shields, his growing interest in philanthropy, and-described in haunting, point-by-point detail-the highs and lows of his celebrated career.
Teachers of religious education experience the challenge of secularization and diversity in the classroom. Schools rooted in the Christian tradition wonder how they can adapt religious education to an increasing plurality in worldviews. How can worldview education contribute to the identity development of children and at the same express the identity of the school? Learning for Life introduces a hermeneutical-communicative model that helps teachers to reflect on their goals, didactical roles, religious sources and students' abilities. Teachers invite students to search for meaning in all kinds of religious and non-religious sources, to exchange views with each other in a respectful way and to respond individually using imagination as a powerful learning tool. Learning for Life explains the model, provides pedagogical backgrounds and shows results from research at nine primary schools in the Netherlands. Hermeneutical-communicative learning appears to be an inspiring perspective for both private and public education. ''Learning for Life provides a research-tested model for teaching religion and worldview to children. Drawing on the talents of teachers, the approach provides for a lively, holistic, and critical approach to assist children to develop their convictions in the community of the class. The approach recognizes the importance of beliefs and meanings to building community and conversation in a diverse, democratic society. While rooted in the experiences of the Netherlands, I highly recommend this book to others as it enriches our strategies for teaching worldview and religion with children--strategies that respect the differences and meaning-making abilities of children.'' --Jack L. Seymour, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, and editor emeritus, Religious Education ''Anchored in the secularized Dutch school context and based on careful empirical research, Mulder and van den Berg develop a solid didactic concept for the religious education classroom. Supporting children in exploring, understanding, and communicating their worldviews--in relationship with traditions, fellow learners, and their own journeys--is the central focus of this concept. The authors explicitly refer to imagination as the added value to the concept and as the necessary condition for sustainable 'learning for life.''' --Bert Roebben, University of Bonn ''Learning for Life presents a refreshingly imaginative approach to Worldview Education. Theoretically grounded, research based, regionally attentive, and nationally focused, it presents a flexible hermeneutical-communicative model attentive to the existential questions raised by young children in exploring their beliefs and values. Though Dutch context specific, it is suitable for both public and private schools in wider secular and plural nations. Very helpful in engaging children in an exploration of their worldview perspectives.'' --John Valk, University of New Brunswick Andre Mulder is a professor of theology and worldview at Windesheim University of Applied Sciences in Zwolle, the Netherlands. His research focuses on the contribution of worldview communication to the quality of professional practices in education, care, and church-related fields. Regarding the field of education in worldview and religion, he is searching for perspectives, methods and didactical roles that stimulate the development of every student in her or his religious identity in the context of diversity. Bas van den Berg is professor emeritus in dynamic identity development at Marnix Academie University of Applied Sciences for Teacher Training in Utrecht, the Netherlands. His expertise includes dialogical hermeneutics and creative interpretation of worldview sources (Jewish, Christian, Islamic, and Humanistic). His research focused
