But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. —Acts 20:24 (ESV) Growing old has been the greatest surprise of my life,” says Billy Graham, known by many as God’s Ambassador. “I would have never guessed what God had in store for me, and I know that as I am nearing home, He will not forsake me the last mile of the way.” In Nearing Home this man of faith—now in his nineties—explores the challenges of aging while gleaning foundational truths from Scripture. Billy Graham invites us to journey with him as he considers the golden years while anticipating the hope of being reunited with his wife, Ruth, in his heavenly home that eclipses this world. “When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice,” says the author. “Growing older with grace is possible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, the Lord Jesus Christ.” Join Billy Graham as he shares the challenges of fading strength but still standing strong in his commitment to finishing life well. “Explore with me not only the realities of life as we grow older but also the hope and fulfillment and even joy that can be ours once we learn to look at these years from God’s point of view and discover His strength to sustain us every day.” —BILLY GRAHAM

"Gould's attention to the ironies and ambivalences that abound in the practice of homesteading provides fresh and insightful perspective."—Beth Blissman, Oberlin College "This luminously written ethnography of the worlds that homesteaders make significantly broadens our understanding of modern American religion. In richly textured descriptions of the everyday lives and work of the homesteaders with whom she lived, Gould helps us understand how the tasks of clearing land, making bread, and building a garden wall were ways of taking on the most urgent issues of meaning and ethics."—Robert A. Orsi, Harvard University "This is a fascinating, authoritative, and accessible look at one of America's most important subcultures. If you ever get around to building that cabin in the woods, or especially if you don't, you'll want this volume on the bookshelf."—Bill McKibben, author of Wandering Home: A Long Walk Across America's Most Hopeful Landscape "Rebecca Gould's compelling book on American homesteading brings the study of the religion-nature connection in the U.S. to a new place."—Catherine L. Albanese, author of Nature Religion in America: From the Algonkian Indians to the New Age "Gould provides brand new data and sheds new interpretive light on familiar figures and movements. At Home in Nature is a model of how to seamlessly blend ethnography and history."—Bron Taylor, University of Florida, editor of the Encyclopedia of Religion and Nature

As the only child of troubled parents, author John Loomis was isolated from his peers and grew up shy, bookish, and knowing from an early age he was different in a seemingly serious and unacceptable way. Gradually, he made peace with being gay and continued his search for love, leading to many adventures, much happiness, and some heartbreak. He shares his story in the Wandering Heart trilogy. The first volume discussed his early years and young adult life. In the second volume, Loomis continued his story, describing how his battle with alcoholism and recurring depression made his path more difficult, particularly after he became involved with a handsome and gifted young man who revealed he was married, a male prostitute, the son of a well-known actress, and a heroin addict. After trying to make this relationship work, Loomis admitted defeat, as the addiction was too powerful to allow space for other human beings.In this third volume, he shares how he met another more positive partner and how they have no been happily together for more than thirty-five years. Filled with an array of photographs of people and places, Wandering heart: A Gay Man's Journey narrates how Loomis has experienced a series of rewarding relationships and additional adventures - some fantastic and others supernatural.

In a moving intervention into Romantic-era depictions of the dead and wounded, Philip Shaw's timely study directs our gaze to the neglected figure of the common soldier. He examines a wide range of print and visual media, including paintings, political prose, anti-war poetry, early photographs, and the letters and journals of soldiers and surgeons, uncovering a history of changing attitudes that qualify notions of suffering on and off the battlefield as noble or heroic.

Bertie Hall is a genuine believer in changing situations or conditions for the sole purpose of achieving quality of growth and success. He also believes real change requires action. He rejects bureaucracy, stagnation, greed, and mediocrity, which do not help to create a prosperous life for all people. Instead, he is totally convinced that new ideas combined with genuine tireless efforts can firmly unite the world for positive change in eliminating poverty in the world. He believes that by working together the world can surely be a better place for all people to enjoy a prosperous life. Among those who need to come together would be world leaders, relevant authorities, governments, charitable groups, the church, and those who have an abundance of wealth. Every individual has his or her shared responsibility in making this possible. "Hurry, Hurry! Urgent Actions!" indicates the urgency of making changes to the situations and the conditions that are affecting the lives of people across the entire globe in a negative manner. Change is always possible but it never comes easily. Bertie Hall's profound feelings about the need for change are fully expressed in his book.

Swimming caps, mango trees, birthday parties, dirty clothes, lemonade, and mosquitoes! What could all these have in common? This collection of forty devotionals connects the ordinary objects and experiences of everyday life to the consistent presence of God in the lives of all of us.

Everyday people who lead ordinary lives are guaranteed to find God in everyday places. These pages will reveal some unusual holy spots that, no doubt, you too have visited but somehow missed the opportunity of a heavenly encounter. Prepare for comfort, laughter, inspiration, and suspense, but most of all a deeper friendship with God. Each new day comes with a personal invitation for a divine encounter. As you wait for the butterflies, you will find them transforming your most unlikely locations into holy ground and you will never experience another day without the presence of God.
