WINNER OF THE 2012 SAMUEL JOHNSON PRIZE A monumental work of history, biography and adventure - the First World War, Mallory and Mount Everest ‘The price of life is death’ For Mallory, as for all of his generation, death was but ‘a frail barrier that men crossed, smiling and gallant, every day’. As climbers they accepted a degree of risk unimaginable before the war. What mattered now was how one lived, and the moments of being alive. While the quest for Mount Everest may have begun as a grand imperial gesture, it ended as a mission of revival for a country and a lost generation bled white by war. In a monumental work of history and adventure, Davis asks not whether George Mallory was the first to reach the summit of Everest, but rather why he kept climbing on that fateful day.

Anne O’Neill perceives this book of poetry to be a literary roadmap for the many diverse places she has lived over the past 40 years: The Southern California and Oregon coasts, the High Sierras, the deserts of the Southwest and, in particular, Gualala on the remote coast of Northern California. Each location possesses a unique beauty that became a powerful muse for poetic expression, the language of the soul. In this sense, the selection of poems is a roadmap for the interior life as well, revealing a depth of insights and emotions. The poems are free form, bound only by a sense of rhythm, according to O’Neill. She includes a sprinkling of haiku with its stringent rules to create a contrasting balance.

Believe it or not, most people who attend church do not see any significant reason for knowing God. Much of this is due to their yearning to live for rational experiences. "Into the Silence" is dedicated to changing this passing familiarity into an intimate connection with God. The Bible goes far beyond rational experiences into a world of direct spiritual encounters. "Into the Silence" features: How to distinguish between rational thinking and the voice of the spirit, How to expose the enemy when he comes as an angel of light, and How to understand that dreams can be significant messages for God.

Danny Smith has been at the forefront of human rights campaigning for over twenty-five years. He has fought for many people, providing a voice for the voiceless and a light in the darkness - this is his story. Shouting into the Silence is fast-moving and inspirational. Danny takes the reader to some of the darkest places on Earth and uncovers many of the 21st century’s most shameful secrets, including child sex slavery, human trafficking, the killing of street children and the orphanages of China. As the head of Jubilee Campaign, he posed as a sex tourist to get the UK laws on child abuse changed; he went to Moscow to fight for the Siberian Seven, and to the streets of India, to break the cycle that had meant that the children of prostitutes would always end up in the same trade. Shouting into the Silence is the story of one man’s battle on behalf of children at risk.

Sitting in stillness, the practice of meditation, and the cultivation of awareness are commonly thought to be the preserves of Hindus and Buddhists. Martin Laird shows that the Christian tradition of contemplation has its own refined teachings on using a prayer word to focus the mind, working with the breath to cultivate stillness, and the practice of inner vigilance or awareness. But this book is not a mere historical survey of these teachings. In Into the Silent Land, we see the ancient wisdom of both the Christian East and West brought sharply to bear on the modern-day longing for radical openness to God in the depths of the heart. Laird's book is not like the many presentations for beginners. While useful for those just starting out, this book serves especially as a guide for those who desire to journey yet deeper into the silence of God. The heart of the book focuses on negotiating key moments of struggle on the contemplative path, when the whirlwind of distractions or the brick wall of boredom makes it difficult to continue. Laird shows that these inner struggles, even wounds, that any person of prayer must face, are like riddles, trying to draw out of us our own inner silence. Ultimately Laird shows how the wounds we loathe become vehicles of the healing silence we seek, beyond technique and achievement. Throughout the language is fresh, direct, and focused on real-life examples of people whose lives are incomparably enriched by the practice of contemplation.

I was by her hospital bed when the surgeon gave his prognosis of 'about a year.' Mother turned to me. Looking directly into my eyes, she reached gently for my hand, and said, imploringly, "Judith, I'm going to need your help." So begins the remarkable journey of two women. Judith Ashley had long ago emigrated from England to the United States. Her mother, Enid, still lived in Great Britain and was now dying of cancer of the bowel and liver. Separated by distance for virtually thirty years, Judith traveled back to England to fulfill a promise made two decades earlier-to be the primary caregiver throughout her mother's last weeks of life. In more than fifty letters written to her husband living six thousand miles away, Ashley recounts-with love and unflinching candor-the conscious way in which her mother approached the last year of her life with dignity, intimacy, and grace. The letters also show how Ashley navigated her way through her own chattering thoughts and roller-coaster emotions to help her have access to an inner source of strength and keep her promise. A moving testament to the strong bond between mother and daughter, Into the Silence beautifully captures one family's enduring spirit.

Where does abuse come from? is an interesting question that has a difficult answer. However, what this book offers may be the beginning point of finding the answer to that question. This book starts by helping you understand and identify what approach your parents used with you when you were a child. As you make that determination, you will begin to understand how you became you and why you do the things you do. Whether your parents approach was strict and harsh or was chaotic and slack, determining where your parents were on a continuum will help you understand how you became you. This book explains how certain parenting styles are likely to produce certain traits and characteristics you have as an adult. If Dad or Moms style of parenting was strict and harsh, you are likely to be a perfectionist, suffer from anxiety, and have OCD issues. Its possible you were emotionally and physically abused by them. If your parents had a chaotic style to parenting, its likely you face identity issues and have a difficult time living a structured life. Sexual abuse may have been a part of your growing up years. Along with this, this book shares how to understand leadership in the church using the same continuum. When church leaders use a harsh and strict way to lead the church, legalism will dominate. When church leaders are promiscuous and slack in their approach, chaos in the church reigns. For both parenting styles and church leadership styles, being in the middle of the continuum flexible - are where families and churches function best. This book provides a step-by-step process for councils and elders boards should they be faced with having to respond to abuse allegations by a church leader. When councils and elder boards are faced with uncertainty about how to proceed, this book shows how to respond to the complainant, the accused, their families and the entire congregation if such a thing did happen. Determining truth, establishing evidence, investigating allegations, and make determinations of what to do are explained in this book. Christs mandate for His Church is about bringing healing and restoration to His broken world. The church is never to be an agent of harm or abuse. As leaders, filling that mandate is critical and crucial in obedience to Him. This includes addressing and responding to abuse when it happens in your faith community. Abuse in the church is real. Abuse in our families is real. No matter what denomination or affiliation you belong to, abuse is happening. Your church is no exception. So church leaders, what are you going to do when allegations of abuse by one of your church leaders comes to your council table? Your journey about what God wants you to do in your response may begin by whats found in this book. Judy R. De Wit
