Full of useful stuff. I particularly liked the chapter on Application, which I made copies of and gave to my student leaders for discussion. I plan to use the materials in the appendix for future teaching and training.

Fantastic. Almost every page challenged me and made me think - and want to learn more, be better. That's the hard part.

Entertaining from beginning to end. Abagnale's writing style is a winning mix of artless and clever; he's clearly not a polished writer, but that works to his advantage somehow. Maybe it's the same charisma shining through that worked so well for him ...more

Willie Krischke is on page 15 of 177 of Shalom and the Community of Creation: How can a community tell if it is practicing shalom? Fortunately, a consistent standard is giving throughout the sacred Scriptures. Shalom is always tested on the margins of a society and revealed by how the poor, oppressed, disempowered, and needy are treated.

It's awfully long, but for a book this thoroughly researched and detailed, surprisingly readable. It's not dry and boring, at least not for the most part. It's easy to get lost in the maze of managers, promoters, distributors, agents, producers, musi ...more

“Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracle. ”
Phillips Brooks

“People say Jesus Christ is a god, and they pray to him. Likewise, the Navajos have a god. He is an everlasting god who never dies, and we pray to him for everything. We were created from white shell in a sacred, holy way. Part of the white shell was taken and put in our bodies, but no one can see it. White Shell is a god. We pray to her "to give us the invisible white shell shoes, white shell socks, clothing, feathers," and so on. This god is female and is out there, but we cannot see her. ”
John Holiday

Flannery O'Connor
“Most of us have learned to be dispassionate about evil, to look it in the face and find, as often as not, our own grinning reflections with which we do not argue, but good is another matter. Few have stared at that long enough to accept that its face too is grotesque, that in us the good is something under construction. The modes of evil usually receive worthy expression. The modes of good have to be satisfied with a cliche or a smoothing down that will soften their real look.”
Flannery O'Connor

Wm. Paul Young
“Just because I work incredible good out of unspeakable tragedies doesn't mean I orchestrate the tragedies. Don't ever assume that my using something means I caused it or that I need it to accomplish my purposes. That will only lead you to false notions about me. Grace doesn't depend on suffering to exist, but where there is suffering you will find grace in many facets and colors.”
Wm. Paul Young, The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity

William T. Vollmann
“There was no one as good as he at using the ovens of logic to bake agreeable results. ”
