Help Me Live: 20 Things People with Cancer Want You to Know
Please read this book!
My husband was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma a few months before our wedding and I could not believe the things people said to us. "Are you still going to get married? You know, you might want to postpone the wedding. I could never handle the pressure of chemo and a wedding! Are you sure you are making the right decision?" All we wanted from people was support and understanding as we ...
Finding Life in the Land of Alzheimer's: One Daughter's Hopeful Story
Unforgettable! A "Must-Read"
"Dancing With Rose" ("Finding Life in the Land of Alzheimer's") was one of the most tender, poignant and moving stories I've ever encountered. On so many levels, it is memorable. I don't have any personal experience (yet) with Alzheimer's, but this book has prepared me to embrace it in a different way than I certainly would have. I applaud Lauren's courage to admit her fears and weaknesses ...
Passionate Housewives Desperate for God
The Vision Forum, Inc.

Polyamory: Roadmaps for the Clueless & Hopeful
Crossquarter Publishing Group
This is the first book on the polyamorous lifestyle I've read which is blissfully bereft of the self-congratulatory tone of most books on the subject. It brings to the discussion about polyamory a refreshingly honest viewpoint which makes no bones about its being one perspective. Yet it's expansive enough to include the perspectives of many different groups thinking about polyamory, or who were ...
Butterfly Kisses and Wishes on Wings: When someone you love has cancer...a hopeful, helpful book for kids
Helpful book for kid's dealing with cancer
We gave this book as a tool to our extended family to help their kid's deal with cancer in the family. We were told it was good.
Victor Books, 1981
If you are studying 1 Peter this book is a must!
As I read the new testament books of the bible and study carefully what it says and how to apply it to my life I usually turn to Warren Wiersbe for a great commentary and devotional. 1 Peter can be a bit overwhelming with all the references to submission and to suffering and rejoicing. Weirsbe's comments added clarity and devotional insight to a topic that is hard to grasp without time and ...
Wandering Home: A Long Walk Across America's Most Hopeful Landscape:Vermont's Champlain Valley and New York's ...
A Connection to the Land
I have spent much of my recreational time in the two places Bill McKibben writes about in this book -- The Adirondacks of New York and the Champlain Valley of Vermont. They both offer some of the most beautiful, pastoral scenery in the US. From Lake Champlain itself you can see the Green Mountains of Vermont on one side and the Adirondack Mountains of New York on the other. As Mr. KcKibben points ...
Hopeful Parenting: Encouragement for Raising Kids Who Love God
David C. Cook
After watching the evening news or reading the headlines, you may have decided that it is impossible to raise Godly children. Scripture tells us that "with God all things are possible." David Jeremiah offers parents words of support. "To be called "Mom or Dad is a tremendous privilege with a corresponding challenge that is just as great." Hopeful Parenting is not an owner's manual. Children ...
Astonishing Stories of a Hopeful Humanity
Ben Schumaker is the voice of our Humanity
This is a rare type of book that can change one's life, and even make one a better person. At one level, the ten stories that make up this book are moving reminders of the crushing hardships, deprivations, and injustices that are all-too-common in the so-called "developing" world. Each of these captures a different set of tragic circumstances while describing how the person tries to cope, often ...
365 Affirmations for Hopeful Living
Abingdon Press, 1992
I have tried many day to day little books with reflections previous to buying this one. I have used this book probably for the past 5+ years and I look no further for a new one. I gave this book to my aunt and then another aunt and within the last year, my daughter...people whom I believe are good people, dealing with negative stuff, trying to do the will of God...and each of us all have said ...
The Hopeful Skeptic: Revisiting Christianity from the Outside
Intervarsity Press, 2009
I, too, am a "hopeful skeptic"...
This book puts into words what I have wrestled with for a long time! I have also struggled with the label "Christian" since it has come to symbolize one with "answers" rather than one with "questions". I, too, am a "hopeful skeptic" who has left the church, but not the Church! I highly recommend this book for those who are no longer "comfortable" sitting passively in the pews.
Turnaround and Beyond: A Hopeful Future for the Small Membership Church
Abingdon Press, 2008
Excellent Research and Practical Advice
Ron Crandall hits the mark with this book. In the field of transformational churches, this book makes a valuable contribution. His research is based on his study of over 200 churches, and then revisted them 10 years later to see what kind of lasting changes were made. His work reflects a breadth of research and insight. While the book is not specific to a particular congregation, it is full ...
The Between Boyfriends Book: A Collection of Cautiously Hopeful Essays
St. Martin's Griffin
Best Collection of Essays Ever!
I purchased this book on clearance a few years ago from Amazon to hit the free shipping limit, and to my surprise it became one of my favorite books of all time. I tend to read before I go to bed, so I especially like essay collections because you can read one or ten. The problem with this book was that I would frequently be literally laughing out loud, and that isn't too conducive to falling ...
Everyone Can Write: Essays Toward a Hopeful Theory of Writing and Teaching Writing
Oxford University Press, USA
Probably Elbow's best book yet!
Probably Elbow's best book yet. This is a superb book reconciling the often conflicting dimensions of the writing process--public vs. private, high-stakes vs. low-stakes writing, freewriting vs. crafted writing, etc.--so much so that it has virtually eliminated my 15-year-old case of writer's block. Despite its scholarly appearance, this is a supremely *practical* book on the writing process, ...
Hopeful Girls, Troubled Boys: Race and Gender Disparity in Urban Education
race, class, and GENDER!
In this book, Dr. Lopez evaluates low-income Dominican, Haitian, and West Indian students to see how gender differentiates their views of society, school, family, and the workforce. Dr. Lopez is "a subject from within": a Dominican-American who was raised under the same circumstances as her subjects. Progressive academics have argued for years that thinkers have not produced enough theory ...
A Generous Orthodoxy: Why I Am a Missional, Evangelical, Post/Protestant, Liberal/Conservative, ...
Brian D. McLaren
3-1/2 stars for making me think outside my denominational 'box'...
First, I would definitely NOT read this book as my first encounter with author, Brian McLaren. I would definitely read the reviews listed here or elsewhere on one of his many other books concerning the Emergent movement or Post-Modern Christianity. The only other book of his I've read is "The Secret Message of Jesus: Uncovering the Truth that could Change Everything" which I liked (even though ...
