"There seems to be a growing consensus around ‘Discipleship’ as the greatest challenge facing Christians in the West - and, as usual, Alison Morgan has not only identified the key issue but also provided a lucid and practical insight into what it means. I love her writing. Somehow she manages to combine substantial scholarship with highly personal reflection and down to earth illustration, so this book – like her previous work – is easy to read as well as intellectually and spiritually stimulating. If you are looking for something to excite people about Christian discipleship, this is it." from the foreword by Bishop James Newcome.

Fr. Dominic Savio Obour is a Catholic priest who hails from Ghana and was ordained into the diocese of Sunyani. For well over six years, he worked as the first substantive chaplain of the Notre Dame Girls High School, Fiapre Sunyani where he doubled as a full time teacher as well. Currently the young priest is studying for his M.A. in communications in Iona College, New Rochelle, while also ministering at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, Katonah, New York. He has also authored Cry of the Hopeless:Inspiring Personal Poems for Daily Living (Westbow Press,May 2012) He has worked primarily with youth and has a deep interest in people of all backgrounds. It therefore comes as no wonder and surprise that this book emanates from his hand, since it seeks to address one of the critical issues facing youth today. In fact, this book is a product of his encounters and interactions with youth and the challenges he has shared with them.But, the importance of the topic and its applicability to all humankind makes this a book for all people of all ages and backgrounds. If indeed you accept the fact that you have ever made a blunder in your life before or know of one struggling with clouds from his past, then this book is a must-read. In this book, Fr. Dominic affirms the messsage he shares with all: No matter how dark and filthy your past, how great your blunders, you are not defined by that past. It is who you now are that counts, it is the "you today" that is of concern to God. It is that which defines and explains who and what you are. No matter what, you still have the grace and the moment to change and be loved."

We are living in an age of heightened individualism. Success is a personal responsibility. Our culture tells us that to succeed is to be slim, rich, happy, extroverted, popular—flawless. We have become self-obsessed. And our expectation of perfection comes at a cost. Millions are suffering under the torture of this impossible fantasy. The pressure to conform to this ideal has changed who we are.It was not always like this. To explain how we got here, award-winning journalist Will Storr leads us on a “terrific tour through the history of self-obsession†? (NPR, On Point) that explores the origins of this notion of the perfect self that torments so many of us: Where does this ideal come from? Why is it so powerful? Is there any way to break its spell?Full of thrilling and unexpected connections among history, psychology, economics, neuroscience, and more, Selfie is an unforgettable book that makes sense of who we have become. Ranging from Ancient Greece, through the Christian Middle Ages, to the self-esteem evangelists of 1980s California, the rise of the “selfie†? generation, and the era of hyper-individualism in which we live now, Selfie tells the epic tale of the person we all know so intimately—because it’s us.

This is an attempt, for the first time ever, to piece together the history of Youth Ministry in Ireland. It is a history of fragments, with no strategic plan. Things simply happened and sometimes surprised even those in leadership. It also failed. At times it was full of vibrancy and fun; today it has become a marginal ministry, left to the few. This history is written out of concern that the mistakes of the past will not be repeated in the future. It comes from the testimonies and memories of those who were involved at various stages and serves also as tribute to those who pioneered the ministry to youth in Ireland.

Morris “Moe” Dalitz was America’s most secretive and most successful mobster. As a major architect of the United States’ national crime syndicate, Dalitz was active in various fields of organized crime from 1918 until his death, all while spinning a web of myth and mock-respectability around himself so dense that decades after his demise, most mistake the legend for reality. From Prohibition-era bootlegging to the Reagan years, no other individual was present at so many pivotal events in gangland history. It’s impossible to fully understand the modern Mob without knowing about Dalitz, his career, and the cunning publicity campaign that transformed his image from thug to that of a revered philanthropist. This exhaustive biography tells the story of Dalitz’s life and the syndicate that he and like-minded individuals built from scratch.

The canon of American literature - especially the American novel - has long been defined by white male writers. From Cooper, Melville and Twain to Crane, Hemingway, and Dickey, the reciprocal relationship between literature and culture has both reflected and determined the socially acceptable roles of males and females. Women scholars and writers have long pointed out that these roles are often different in novels written by female authors.
