Rosa and her mama go to school together—in the dark of night, silently, afraid that any noise they hear is a patroller on the lookout for escaped slaves. Their school is literally a hole in the ground, where they and other slaves of all ages gather to form letters out of sticks, scratch letters in the dirt, and pronounce their sounds in whispers. Young Rosa is eager to learn the letters and then the words, because after the words comes reading. But she must have patience, her mama reminds her, and keep her letters to herself when she's working on the plantation. If the Master catches them, it'll mean a whipping—one lash for each letter. No matter how slow and dangerous the process might be, Rosa is determined to learn, and pass on her learning to others.

He descended into hell. Hans Urs von Balthasar, one of the most influential theologians of the twentieth century, placed this affirmation of the Nicene Creed at the heart of his reflection on the world-altering events of Holy Week, asserting that this identification of God with the human experience is at the "absolute center" of the Christian faith. Yet is such a descent to suffering really the essence of Catholic belief about the mystery of Holy Saturday? Alyssa Lyra Pitstick's Light in Darkness -- the first comprehensive treatment of Balthasar's theology of Holy Saturday -- draws on the multiple yet unified resources of authoritative Catholic teaching on Christ's descent to challenge Balthasar's conclusions. Pitstick conducts a thorough investigation of Balthasar's position that Christ suffered in his descent into hell and asks whether that is compatible with traditional teaching about Christ. Light in Darkness is a thorough argument for the existence and authority of a traditional Catholic doctrine of Christ's descent as manifested in creeds, statements of popes and councils, Scripture, and art from Eastern and Western traditions. Pitstick's carefully argued, contrarian work is sure to spur debate across the theological spectrum.

Some people lead because of their position, while others have an innate ability to inspire action regardless of the most adverse conditions. However, a universal disconnect remains - current leadership practices are exclusively focused on how the leader interacts with their people, not the people's ultimate output.A Light in the Darkness supports everyone to both lead and develop at their own pace; harnessing each individual's unique capacity while mitigating ineffective learned behaviors. Rather than a "How To" book, we challenge the reader to usher in a new era of leadership, bespoke in nature.A Light in the Darkness introduces practices that were initially found to work in the life or death situations afforded by 20 years of Military Service. We're excited to find that they work equally well from the boardroom to the classroom. The reader's art becomes adapting them for what you do, who you are, and an uncertain future - ultimately identifying the optimal process for everyone in their constellation.

From the time of its emergence in the United States in 1852, the Young Men's Christian Association excluded blacks from membership in white branches but encouraged them to form their own associations and to join the Christian brotherhood on "separate but equal" terms. Nina Mjagkij's book, the first comprehensive study of African Americans in the YMCA, is a compelling account of hope and success in the face of adversity. African American men, faced with emasculation through lynchings, disenfranchisement, race riots, and Jim Crow laws, hoped that separate YMCAs would provide the opportunity to exercise their manhood and joined in large numbers, particularly members of the educated elite. Although separate black YMCAs were the product of discrimination and segregation, to African Americans they symbolized the power of racial solidarity, representing a "light in the darkness" of racism. By the early twentieth century there existed a network of black-controlled associations that increasingly challenged the YMCA to end segregation. But not until World War II did the organization, in response to growing protest, pass a resolution urging white associations to end Jim Crowism. Using previously untapped sources, Nina Mjagkij traces the YMCA's changing racial policies and practices and examines the evolution of African American associations and their leadership from slavery to desegregation. Here is a vivid and moving portrayal of African Americans struggling to build black-controlled institutions in their search for cultural self-determination. Light in the Darkness uncovers an important aspect of the struggle for racial advancement and makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the African American experience.

Fr. Jonathan Morris Calls Us to Be the Light of the World In 1945, Father James Keller saw a world at war, the beginnings of the cold war, and divisions at home. He was a man who believed that against all odds one person could make a difference - so he started a grass-roots movement called The Christophers - literally "Christbearers" - in the belief that each individual has a role in bringing hope and change to a troubled world. And the response was staggering. The world was hungry for the message, and embraced Fr. Keller's motto: "IT IS BETTER TO LIGHT ONE CANDLE THAN TO CURSE THE DARKNESS." In 2014, the world is just as dangerous and chaotic, and in many ways far more insidious than in Fr. Keller's day. No one knows the extent of this crisis better than Father Jonathan Morris, popular author and FOX news analyst. Here, in his new book Light in the Darkness, Fr. Johnathan brings you eight of the core teachings of Fr. Keller, along with his own insights, showing us how they relate to us today. A Sense of Purpose The Power of Love Sharing the Faith The Witness of Life Pray Always Becoming Like Christ Living as a Christian Trusting God Fr. Jonathan believes that now is the time for each of us to realize our own roles, and become "Christophers" in the world we live in today.

Two gods, two houses, one quest, and the eternal war between life and death To save his kingdom, Anubis, Lord of the Dead, sends forth his servant on a mission of vengeance. At the same time, from The House of Life, Osiris sends forth his son, Horus, on the same mission to destroy utterly and forever The Prince Who Was a Thousand. But neither of these superhuman warriors is prepared for the strange and harrowing world of mortal life, and The Thing That Cries in the Night may well destroy not only their worlds, but all mankind. As Zelazny did with the Hindu pantheon in the legendary, groundbreaking classic Lord of Light, the master storyteller here breathes new life into the Egyptian gods with another dazzling tale of mythology and imagination.
