Here are the insights of over two dozen psychologists, theologians, and those in pastoral care, all targeting the issue of sexual abuse. Designed as a resource for Christian educators, therapists, pastors, social workers, group leaders, and survivors, The Long Journey Home combines current research in mental health with rich theological reflection, global concern with fervent pastoral wisdom for the local faith community.

The author fanaticized about combat and played war games in his youth. War is not a game. Combat wasn't this fantasy for him in real life. This book tells the story of a Kansas boy who grew up quickly serving as a combat platoon leader in the Vietnam War. It shares his exploits with A Company, 4/503, 173 Airborne Brigade. His platoon was very unlucky in the June/November 1967 campaign as the "Fire Brigade" took on the NVA in Dak To. His actions are reported in at least two documentary books dealing with individual firefights in the Central Highlands during that period. This is the unpolished truth about the brutal war and how really futile it was to go toe to toe against a better-prepared army and survive. The author gives unembellished reports of what his unit experienced and backs it up with the Battalion After Action Reports. He acknowledges he is alive today only because of superior tactical air support and artillery firepower. This book gives an entirely different viewpoint than most books authored by Vietnam veterans. While his observations may be controversial to some vets, it reflects the author's objective opinion of what he experienced there.

Author Charles Ota Heller’s early childhood in Czechoslovakia was idyllic, but his safe and happy world didn’t last long, Three years after his birth, Germany forced an occupation of his country; afterward, most of his young life consisted of running and hiding. His life, just like those of the other youths who lived in Europe during the late 1930s and early 1940s, was shaped forever by the dangers, horrors, and unsettling events he experienced. In this memoir, Heller, born Ota Karel Heller, narrates his family’s story—a family nearly destroyed by the Nazis. Son of a mixed marriage, he was raised a Catholic and was unaware of his Jewish roots, even after his father escaped to join the British army and fifteen members of his family disappeared. Prague: My Long Journey Home tells of his Christian mother being sent to a slave labor camp and of his hiding on a farm to avoid deportation to a death camp. With the war coming to a close, Heller tells of how he picked up a revolver and shot a Nazi when he was just nine years old. Heller, now an assimilated American, left the horrors of the past—along with his birth name—behind to live the proverbial American Dream. In his memoir, he recalls how two cataclysmic events following Czechoslovakia’s Velvet Revolution brought him face-to-face with demons of his former life. On his personal journey Heller discovered and embraced his heritage—one which he had abandoned decades earlier.

This book is a story about an adventurous and mystical journey inspired by my immersion in a foreign culture on a six month assignment in the Orient with an unexpected secret destination...awakening to the true essence of life and divine love. Disillusioned with society's standards for success and happiness, personal life challenges, and a desire to express my gifts and talents to the world, I welcomed this life-changing journey. Obsession with the past and excessive concern about the future often disengaged me from the present moment with a desire to search for some transcendent meaning in life. The geographic change, integration within a multi-ethnic and multi-religious culture, and a new lifestyle enabled me to engage in more passionate and intimate expressions of life. Experiencing the charitable spirit of the culture, marveling at the mysteries and wonders of the land, communing with nature, and engaging in cultural rituals stirred my heart and awakened me to the beauty of life and a peace beyond understanding. It enabled me to build self-confidence, trust, and experience unconditional love. Being faraway from home, the realization of the true meaning of home became more profound with the revelation of a meaningful gift revealed at the end of the journey. The book highlights the "spectrum of love" in the 1880 classic, "The Greatest Thing in the World" by Henry Drummond including patience, kindness, generosity, humility, courtesy, unselfishness, good temper, guilessness and sincerity. These ingredients laid the foundation for transcending culture and language, a renewed sense of self, conscious living, and a heightened awareness of divine love.
