A kaleidoscopic, fast-paced tour of Latin America from one of the Spanish-speaking world’s most outstanding writers. Lamenting not having more time to get to know each of the nineteen countries he visits after winning the prestigious Premio Alfaguara, Andrés Neuman begins to suspect that world travel consists mostly of “not seeing.” But then he realizes that the fleeting nature of his trip provides him with a unique opportunity: touring and comparing every country of Latin America in a single stroke. Neuman writes on the move, generating a kinetic work that is at once puckish and poetic, aphoristic and brimming with curiosity. Even so-called non-places—airports, hotels, taxis—are turned into powerful symbols full of meaning. A dual Argentine-Spanish citizen, he incisively explores cultural identity and nationality, immigration and globalization, history and language, and turbulent current events. Above all, Neuman investigates the artistic lifeblood of Latin America, tackling with gusto not only literary heavyweights such as Bolaño, Vargas Llosa, Lorca, and Galeano, but also an emerging generation of authors and filmmakers whose impact is now making ripples worldwide. Eye-opening and charmingly offbeat, How to Travel without Seeing: Dispatches from the New Latin America is essential reading for anyone interested in the past, present, and future of the Americas.

One Interrail Pass. A strong sense of adventure. A will to travel wherever. A plan to have no plan. The story of my 37 day trip around Europe, taking in sixteen countries, from the wilds of Finnish Lapland to beautiful Budapest and romantic, sophisticated Paris via the small town charm of Zakopane, problems only arising when my plan to have no plan philosophy hit some serious snags. Highlights included watching football in Tallinn with a Tony Soprano lookalike, being saved from homelessness by Finland's third best wrestler, the wonder of Norway's stunning landscape, the surprises offered by Krakow and Bratislava, and a perfect last night in Paris. Lowlights included an ill-advised night hike through the Norwegian mountains, stalker issues in Geneva, budget shattering prices in Scandinavia, a tourist crisis in Prague, police drama in Western Austria, and plenty of last minute dashes for trains and buses. All in all, one mighty rollercoaster ride of fun, loneliness, wonder, anxiety, adrenaline, panic and every other emotion under the sun.

Weary travelers. You've seen them -- everything they own crammed into their luggage. Staggering through terminals and hotel lobbies with overstuffed suitcases, trunks, duffels, and backpacks. Backs ache. Feet burn. Eyelids droop. We've all seen people like that. At times, we are people like that -- if not with our physical luggage, then at least with our spiritual load. We all lug loads we were never intended to carry. Fear. Worry. Discontent. No wonder we get so weary. We're worn out from carrying that excess baggage. Wouldn't it be nice to lose some of those bags? That's the invitation of Max Lucado. With the Twenty-third Psalm as our guide, let's release some of the burdens we were never intended to bear. Using these verses as a guide, Max Lucado walks us through a helpful inventory of our burdens. May God use this Psalm to remind you to release the burdens you were never meant to bear.

Have you ever wondered how far you had to go to get to where you are now? From Eternity to Eternity is a journey that takes one in a circle away from oneself until one returns to where one was in the first place. Going out and returning are two parts of the same thing. Have you ever wondered what is the nature of the coming of the Sun of Righteousness, or the nature of the Lord coming in flaming fire? Have you wondered how the Daystar is to arise within one's heart? The Kingdom of the Sun reveals the nature of the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven as two parts of the same thing. The Kingdom of God is also at the core of that interchange, the three measures of meal forming one leaven, as it were.
