There's a life that's better than the life you've imagined?.?.?. You wake up one morning and realize that the life you've dreamed of has eluded you. You sense that something better—something bigger—is waiting out there for you, but you can't quite put your finger on it. You know that fame and fortune aren't the answers to true satisfaction in life . . . but, then, what is? The answer lies in discovering and following your "mighty purpose" for life—a reason for living that is so much bigger than yourself that it transforms you, your relationships, and the world as a result. In Heroic Living, best-selling author and former investment banker Chris Lowney combines his business expertise with proven practices of Ignatian spirituality to help each of us—regardless of calling, career, or current situation—discover a mighty purpose and develop a personal life strategy to achieve it. By merging astute business knowledge and spiritual wisdom, Lowney provides the tools needed to make practical, long-term life changes that move us away from our fractured, compartmentalized lives and toward the satisfaction and wholeness that each of us desires so deeply. Praise for Chris Lowney and Heroic Living "Chris Lowney's most recent book is a substantive blend of 'why' and 'how' to construct a life of purpose and integrity amidst the exigencies and complexities of our fast-paced daily lives." —Stephen A. Privett, SJ, President, University of San Francisco "Lowney's whole-life strategy connects us with our deepest beliefs, and connects these beliefs with what we do every day to 'make the world not only life-giving and sustaining but beautiful and interesting.'?" —Thomas M. Loarie, Chairman and CEO, Mercator MedSystems, Inc. "This book is not about guaranteed steps to success but suggests a thoughtful and convincing path to an integrated life." —Karen M. Ristau, EdD, President, NCEA "Lowney's powerful book refreshingly integrates strategic management, religious tradition, and human stories. The book is full of teachable moments that help one view life from the 'inside out' rather than the 'outside in'—calling all of us to a better version of ourselves." —Michael D. Connelly, President and CEO, Catholic Healthcare Partners "This work is a welcomed contribution for anyone longing for a more authentic and purposeful life." —Steve G. W. Moore, Executive Director, M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust

Army Ranger and bestselling author Kris Paronto reveals the values and creed shared by special forces for self-improvement and living a purposeful life. When Kris Paronto began talking with civilians about his experiences fighting the terrorist attack on the US State Department Special Mission Compound in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, he was surprised at how often people told him that the story of his extraordinary battle gave them courage to face tough times in their everyday lives. "The odds were stacked against us that night but the truth is that we refused to quit and we beat them with faith, teamwork, and the principles that were first instilled in me when I joined the Army. You can find those in the Rangers Creed and the Army Values," he says, "and you don't have to be a Special Operations soldier to use them." In The Patriot's Creed, Kris Paronto uses the seven core Army Values that all soldiers learn in Basic Combat Training, and the experiences of other servicemen and women and First Responders, to explain how anyone can improve themselves, the world around them, and live a heroic life. The stakes are dramatic for the brave men and women who put their lives on the line to fight for America, and too many of their acts of courage and honor are unknown. The examples of their persistence and discipline will be inspiring to anyone facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles. At a time of national polarization, Kris Paronto draws attention to values all readers can share and use, and to the honor, integrity and courage of true patriots who have gone to great lengths to protect and serve. They embody the best of us and make Kris Paronto proud to be an American soldier.

With tens of millions killed and thousands of Catholics incarcerated because of rigged trials, China under Mao’s dictatorship was the Asian version of the Nazi concentration camps and the Soviet Gulag. It’s one of the darkest moments in Church history – one that continues to be played out to this day through a historic abuse of power and a seemingly endless hunt for believers in Jesus Christ and His Church. Now the stories of these brave Catholic “counter-revolutionaries” are brought to you for the first time. These four autobiographical testimonies will leave you speechless and inspired. You’ll witness the endless strength and hope these brave men displayed despite years of shocking psychological and physical abuse. Nothing short of miraculous, you’ll hear their miraculous stories in the face of hunger, torture, interrogation, indoctrination, and the humiliation of the “people’s trials.” There emerged from these souls the crystalline faith of those brave enough to accept their own Calvary for fidelity to Christ without ever becoming slaves of hatred.

American religious pacifism is usually explained in terms of its practitioners' ethical and philosophical commitments. Patricia Appelbaum argues that Protestant pacifism, which constituted the religious center of the large-scale peace movement in the United States after World War I, is best understood as a culture that developed dynamically in the broader context of American religious, historical, and social currents. Exploring piety, practice, and material religion, Appelbaum describes a surprisingly complex culture of Protestant pacifism expressed through social networks, iconography, vernacular theology, individual spiritual practice, storytelling, identity rituals, and cooperative living. Between World War I and the Vietnam War, she contends, a paradigm shift took place in the Protestant pacifist movement. Pacifism moved from a mainstream position to a sectarian and marginal one, from an embrace of modernity to skepticism about it, and from a Christian center to a purely pacifist one, with an informal, flexible theology. The book begins and ends with biographical profiles of two very different pacifists, Harold Gray and Marjorie Swann. Their stories distill the changing religious culture of American pacifism revealed in Kingdom to Commune.
