We live in dark times. Christians wonder: Are the best days of the Christian faith behind us? Has modernity made Christian thought irrelevant and impotent? Is society beyond all hope of redemption and renewal? In Renaissance, Os Guinness declares no. Throughout history, the Christian faith has transformed entire cultures and civilizations, building cathedrals and universities, proclaiming God´s goodness, beauty and truth through art and literature, science, and medicine. The Christian faith may similarly change the world again today. The church can be revived to become a renewing power in our society - if we answer the call to a new Christian renaissance that challenges darkness with the hope of Christian faith. In this hopeful appeal for cultural transformation, Guinness shares opportunities for Christians, on both local and global levels, to win back the West and to contribute constructively to the human future. Hearkening back to similar pivotal points in history, Guinness encourages Christians in the quest for societal change. Each chapter closes with thought-provoking discussion questions and a brief, heart-felt prayer that challenges and motivates us to take action in our lives today. 1. Language: English.

Joe Girard was an example of a young man with perseverance and determination. Joe began his working career as a shoeshine boy. He moved on to be a newsboy for the Detroit Free Press at nine years old, then a dishwasher, a delivery boy, stove assembler, and home building contractor.

Here, he shares his winning techniques in this step-by-step book, including how to: o Read a customer like a book and keep that customer for life o Convince people reluctant to buy by selling them the right way o Develop priceless information from a two-minute phone call o Make word-of-mouth your most successful tool Informative, entertaining, and inspiring, HOW TO SELL ANYTHING TO ANYBODY is a timeless classic and an indispensable tool for anyone new to the sales market.
We were created by an infinitely creative God to reflect his love and character to the world. One way we do that is by continuing his creative work. In this energizing book, serial entrepreneur and best-selling author Jordan Raynor helps artists, entrepreneurs, writers, and other creatives re-imagine our work as service to God and others, addressing such penetrating questions as: Is my work as a creative really as God-honoring as that of a pastor or missionary? What does it look like to create a name for myself but to glorify God and serve others? How can I use my work to fulfill Jesus´ command to create disciples? Will what I make today matter in eternity? To answer these questions, Raynor shares compelling stories from an eclectic group of more than 40 Christian entrepreneurs, including the founders of Toms Shoes, Charity: Water, Chick-fil-A, In-N-Out Burger, Guinness, HTC, and Sevenly, as well as nontraditional entrepreneurs such as C. S. Lewis, Johann Sebastian Bach, and J. R. R. Tolkien. Raynor´s ´´show´´-rather-than-´´tell´´, story-driven style makes you feel as if you are sitting at the feet of some of the godliest and most successful entrepreneurs of all time. Perfectly poised to reach today´s growing creative class, this unique work restores God´s position as the first entrepreneur, helping listeners see the eternal value in the work they do today. 1.

A must-have for Star Wars fans-the definitive behind-the-scenes history of the classic film that started it all After the 1973 success of American Graffiti, filmmaker George Lucas made the fateful decision to pursue a longtime dream project: a space fantasy movie unlike any ever produced. Lucas envisioned a swashbuckling SF saga inspired by the Flash Gordon serials classic American westerns, the epic cinema of Japanese auteur Akira Kurosawa, and mythological heroes. Its original title: The Star Wars. The rest is history, and how it was made is a story as entertaining and exciting as the movie that has enthralled millions for thirty years-a story that has never been told as it was meant to be. Until now. Using his unprecedented access to the Lucasfilm Archives and its trove of never-before-published ´´lost´´ interviews, photos, production notes, factoids, and anecdotes, Star Wars scholar J. W. Rinzler hurtles readers back in time for a one-of-a-kind behind-the-scenes look at the nearly decade-long quest of George Lucas and his key collaborators to make the ´´little´´ movie that became a phenomenon. For the first time, it´s all here: - the evolution of the now-classic story and characters-including ´´Annikin Starkiller´´ and ´´a huge green-skinned monster with no nose and large gills´´ named Han Solo - excerpts from George Lucas´s numerous, ever-morphing script drafts - the birth of Industrial Light & Magic, the special-effects company that revolutionized Hollywood filmmaking - the studio-hopping and budget battles that nearly scuttled the entire project - the director´s early casting saga, which might have led to a film spoken mostly in Japanese-including the intensive auditions that won the cast members their roles and made them legends - the grueling, nearly catastrophic location shoot in Tunisia and the subsequent breakneck dash at Elstree Studios in London - the who´s who of young film rebels who pitched in to help-including Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg, and Brian DePalma But perhaps most exciting, and rarest of all, are the interviews conducted before and during production and immediately after the release of Star Wars-in which George Lucas, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Sir Alec Guinness, Anthony Daniels, composer John Williams, effects masters Dennis Muren, Richard Edlund, and John Dykstra, Phil Tippett, Rick Baker, legendary production designer John Barry, and a host of others share their fascinating tales from the trenches and candid opinions of the film that would ultimately change their lives. No matter how you view the spectrum of this thirty-year phenomenon, The Making of Star Wars stands as a crucial document-rich in fascination and revelation-of a genuine cinematic and cultural touchstone.
Jay adores his small daughter, Bonnie, and nothing matters more to him than being a good father. But Bonnie´s traumatic birth puts an unbearable strain on his marriage with Shauna, and the couple eventually separate. Struggling to cope with the separation from three-year-old Bonnie, Jay thinks constantly of his own mother, whom he hasn´t seen since he fled Ireland a decade before. Resolved to move forward, Jay finds himself a flat share with two eccentric Kenyan businessmen, snags a role working on a documentary about the Millennium Dome (through ´Dublin Darren´, an old laboring contact), and is utterly rigid in his commitment to Bonnie time. Indeed, things might have even begun to look up were it not for the arrival of an old ´friend´ from home. ´The Clappers´ is six foot tall, four foot wide, built like several Guinness barrels strapped together, and is all, all woman. She means well, and she means to make everything right for Jay. But inevitably she makes it wrong. A helter-skelter dash to Ireland results in some brutal revelations on behalf of Jay´s mother, and an inevitable return to London culminates in a midnight epiphany in the shadow of Tony Blair, the queen, and Auld Lang Syne. Can Jay be a good father to Bonnie? Or is it too late? The Fields, also by Kevin Maher, was shortlisted for the Authors Club Best First Novel Award. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Owen McDonnell.
