Over 2.9 million US military personnel—facing serious emotional and spiritual challenges—serve in more than 150 countries. Called to Serve pinpoints the needs of these military families. Real-life stories drawn from twenty-three years of military experience offer encouragement, humor, and tools to combat relational threats from the perspective of the “Warrior” (husband) and his “Spouse.” Thirty compelling, uplifting, and encouraging devotionals address the top identified stressors affecting military personnel and their families. Each account, tied to relevant Scripture, whets the spiritual palate, encouraging the reader to seek additional encouragement from the Bible.

Called to Serve is for people with questions about creating and maintaining a successful nonprofit board. How can the board of a nonprofit organization work best? Now that I'm on such a board, what should I do? How can we find the best trustees? How should I think about my work for nonprofits? What kind of relationship between a board and the staff will work best? How can we organize and develop the service of busy, committed people? Internationally renowned CEO and best-selling author Max De Pree packs his many years of experience on nonprofit boards into these short letters directed to busy folks active in nonprofit life. Brief, clear, and -- above all -- useful, Called to Serve notes the marks of an effective board, lays out the proper work of boards, gives choices for structuring a nonprofit board, and covers the roles and relationships of board chairpersons, trustees, and presidents. Today there are more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations in America, with 109 million people working in this important sector of society. In spite of this surprising fact, very little training exists for this kind of service. Called to Serve is valuable not only because it fills this need but also because it comes from the pen of one of America's most experienced and respected business leaders.

Winner, 2014 Catholic Book Award in History presented by the Catholic Press Association For generations of American Catholics, the face of their church was, quite literally, a woman's face—the nursing sister in the hospital where they were born, the teaching sister in the school where they were educated, the caring sister who helped them through times of trouble. McGuinness recovers the compelling story of these sisters and puts them back at the center of American Catholic history." —James M. O'Toole, Boston College "Conveys the history of American women’s religious life in its astonishing breadth and diversity. McGuinness writes with the authority of a scholar and the ease of a storyteller. Her collective portrait of the women who have for so long represented the face of the American Catholic church will be useful to not only to historians of women and of religion in the United States, but also to general readers who wish to learn about the often hidden and far-ranging contributions vowed women have made to church and nation." —Kathleen Sprows Cummings, University of Notre Dame For many Americans, nuns and sisters are the face of the Catholic Church. Far more visible than priests, Catholic women religious teach at schools, found hospitals, offer food to the poor, and minister to those in need. Their work has shaped the American Catholic Church throughout its history. Yet despite their high profile, a concise history of American Catholic sisters and nuns has yet to be published. In Called to Serve, Margaret M. McGuinness provides the reader with an overview of the history of Catholic women religious in American life, from the colonial period to the present. The early years of religious life in the United States found women religious in immigrant communities and on the frontier, teaching, nursing, and caring for marginalized groups. In the second half of the twentieth century, however, the role of women religious began to change. They have fewer members than ever, and their population is aging rapidly. And the method of their ministry is changing as well: rather than merely feeding and clothing the poor, religious sisters are now working to address the social structures that contribute to poverty, fighting what one nun calls “social sin.” In the face of a changing world and shifting priorities, women religious must also struggle to strike a balance between the responsibilities of their faith and the limitations imposed upon them by their church. Rigorously researched and engagingly written, Called to Serve offers a compelling portrait of Catholic women religious throughout American history. Instructor's Guide

Finnegan, colonel (retired), executive director, Military Initiatives and Partnerships, Office of the President, University of Louisville "One of the more compelling issues of our time is the integration of returning veterans and service members into our society following their service to our country. This handbook will be a critical tool in guiding higher education professionals in developing strategies to ensure their success in college." —Kevin Kruger, president, NASPA–Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education "This timely book explains and presents a new meaning of 'called to service.' The issues and vignettes bring to life real situations that will be facing all campuses. I highly recommend this valuable resource to those looking forward and not back." —Gregory Roberts, executive director, ACPA–College Student Educators International "I have waited over forty years for such a comprehensive handbook to be written about the challenges, opportunities, and rewards that are associated with providing higher education to America's veterans—our future leaders. Well done." —Robert E. Wallace, Vietnam veteran and executive director, Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S., Washington Office

Marine veteran and Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton recounts his experiences in Iraq and on Capitol Hill, and calls for a program of national service to bring Americans together again. Seth Moulton grew up in Massachusetts and graduated from Harvard, but he didn’t follow his classmates to Wall Street; he joined the U.S. Marine Corps, a choice that shocked his liberal friends and family. Like most Marines, Moulton signed up to prove something to himself. But discussions with his mentor, the Rev. Peter Gomes, about the importance of service to country and community also influenced his decision. A few months later, the 9/11 attacks dramatically changed the course of his life. He led an infantry platoon into Baghdad during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. In 2004, he experienced the fiercest fighting of the war to date: the block-by-block battle to dislodge the Mahdi Army from Najaf. He served four tours in Iraq, ultimately working for Gen. David Petraeus to develop counterinsurgency strategies and negotiate agreements with Shia tribes. Called to Serve is the story of how the training, success, and failure Moulton endured in the Marine Corps transformed him as a leader, and how his fellow Marines changed his life. This same call drove him to run for Congress, where he works to foster bipartisan leadership and develop a serious long-term strategy for the Middle East. This deeply felt and inspirational book is a testament to the enduring strength and value of the ideals that unite us as a people.

In Called to Serve, founding director Charles F. Hermann and writer Sally Dee Wade chronicle the twenty-year history of the George Bush School of Government and Public Service, which has rapidly evolved into one of the nation’s major professional graduate schools of public and international affairs. The story traces the progress of the Bush School from its initial challenges to secure funding, students, and professors to its departure from the College of Liberal Arts as an independent unit with its own dean and faculty, and through the creation of its current curricula and policy-oriented research institutes. Insider stories and candid photographs illustrate how President Bush’s focused personal interest and involvement with the school and its students have contributed to the many developments and successes that the Bush School has enjoyed. With carefully researched narrative and absorbing, behind-the-scenes details, Called to Serve documents the first two decades of the Bush School’s brief but significant history and looks to the promising future that awaits this widely respected academic enterprise.
