A “beautiful story of a brotherhood between enemies”* emerges from the horrors of World War II in this New York Times and international bestseller. December, 1943: A badly damaged American bomber struggles to fly over wartime Germany. At the controls is twenty-one-year-old Second Lieutenant Charlie Brown. Half his crew lay wounded or dead on this, their first mission. Suddenly, a Messerschmitt fighter pulls up on the bomber’s tail. The pilot is German ace Franz Stigler—and he can destroy the young American crew with the squeeze of a trigger... What happened next would defy imagination and later be called “the most incredible encounter between enemies in World War II.” The U.S. 8th Air Force would later classify what happened between them as “top secret.” It was an act that Franz could never mention for fear of facing a firing squad. It was the encounter that would haunt both Charlie and Franz for forty years until, as old men, they would search the world for each other, a last mission that could change their lives forever.

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY AND ECPA BESTSELLER • The husband and wife behind the popular Earls Family Vlogs share their inspiring love story of how an expedition to climb Mount Everest deepened their faith, strengthened their commitment, and sharpened their vision to make a difference in the world. As a senior at West Point, Harold Earls dreamed of summiting Mount Everest after graduation and bringing awareness to the issue of PTSD in soldiers and veterans. But as a novice mountain climber and newlywed, could he really leave his wife, Rachel, on the other side of the world to pursue such a dangerous quest? After all, Rachel’s dream was to be a wife and mother. She knew that her husband’s audacious goal might lead to her to give up everything. A Higher Calling takes us on a beautiful journey through the ups and downs of their relationship, from their unlikely introduction and whirlwind romance to their fairy-tale wedding and the dreams they shared. Dreams that required tremendous sacrifice and faith—in each other and in God. As their dreams are realized, witness how Harold and Rachel used their powerful bond of love to overcome obstacles and learn that life is about doing versus having, serving versus getting, being versus wanting. A Higher Calling shows each of us that when God’s purpose and our passion meet, we can transcend any sacrifice we make on the mountains of adversity. And as we approach life with an attitude of thanksgiving, we realize that being joyful and living in love is worth it. Every time.

This book is about my life: the struggles, trials and tribulations of a cancer patient. This book is also about my family and their trials and tribulations. I have been through 31 surgeries and still counting. I have lost two kidneys, bladder, ureters, urethra, female organs and now a lung. I am told by every doctor that sees me that there is no way that I should be alive. This book has been a cleansing for me. I wrote it because everyone told me I should write a book because it would inspire cancer patients and it was so unbelievable. There are many people in my life that have inspired me to carry on. I think that I have a knack for turning lemons into lemonade. Never let things get you down. There are always people out there that have it worse than you do. I always try to pick myself up and carry on. There are many people that need me out there and I need them as well. Last but not least, I am slowly learning to listen to God not just hear him. I hope that in these pages you will find solace.

Praise for Confessions Of A High-Priced Call Girl "With clients that included Oscar winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, Dimitra became the Happy Hooker of the 1990s. Now she shares some of her juiciest anecdotes in a tell-all book that promises to be a best-seller." Hustler Magazine A prince from Oman flies Dimitra from New York to Las Vegas on a private jet; a 65-year old business tycoon who, in the days before Viagra demands little more than the 24-old Dimitra's company; a hot film actor who is so well-endowed he is "painful". But no other client receives more attention than Aaron Sorkin. They meet, start a two-year long drug-fueled relationship, and lose touch. They start e-mailing eight years later, and by this time Sorkin has written a call girl character into his TV show, The West Wing. Amber is a call girl and one of Dimitra's best friends. She is attacked and nearly killed by a serial murderer who poses as a client. After Amber's life is almost destroyed, Dimitra thinks being on The West Wing would restore Amber's self-esteem. She tells Sorkin about the attack, and asks him to audition Amber for the show. After all, he always writes in his e-mails that he wants to be friends, and Amber is more gorgeous than anybody on The West Wing. But is he truly a friend? Or, are these only some of his many words on paper, so to speak? Confessions Of A High-Priced Call Girl is an extraordinary journey that will enthrall readers with its stylish writing, secrets and lies, wit and lust.

A revolution has been taking place in the ranks of higher education. University and college presidents—once almost invariably the products of "traditional" scholarly, tenure-track career paths, up through the provost’s office—are rapidly becoming a group with diverse skills and backgrounds. The same is true for many deans and administrative leaders. In Higher Calling: The Rise of Nontraditional Leaders in Academia, Scott C. Beardsley, dean of the University of Virginia’s prestigious Darden School of Business, offers a new vision of leadership for today’s higher education. Grounded in the author’s own inspirational story of leaving McKinsey & Company in pursuit of a new source of meaning in his professional life, Higher Calling employs research gathered from search firm executives who now play king or queen maker in presidential and dean searches. It also takes into account information from U.S. liberal arts colleges—considered by many to be the bellwethers of change—to explore what set of strengths an institution of higher education needs in a leader in the twenty-first century. Beardsley explores the widely varying definitions and associated numbers of traditional and nontraditional leaders and asks, Why are U.S. colleges and universities hiring nontraditional candidates to lead them into the future? How are the skills required to lead higher education institutions changing? Or has the search process changed, resulting in a more diverse set of candidates? Providing not only an analysis of nontraditional leaders in higher education but also strategies for developing skills and selecting leaders, Beardsley offers a wealth of information for the modern university in the face of change.

The professor and historian delivers a major critique of how political and financial attacks on the academy are undermining our system of higher education. Making a provocative foray into the public debates over higher education, acclaimed historian Ellen Schrecker argues that the American university is under attack from two fronts. On the one hand, outside pressure groups have staged massive challenges to academic freedom, beginning in the 1960s with attacks on faculty who opposed the Vietnam War, and resurfacing more recently with well-funded campaigns against Middle Eastern Studies scholars. Connecting these dots, Schrecker reveals a distinct pattern of efforts to undermine the legitimacy of any scholarly study that threatens the status quo. At the same time, Schrecker deftly chronicles the erosion of university budgets and the encroachment of private-sector influence into academic life. From the dwindling numbers of full-time faculty to the collapse of library budgets, The Lost Soul of Higher Education depicts a system increasingly beholden to corporate America and starved of the resources it needs to educate the new generation of citizens. A sharp riposte to the conservative critics of the academy by the leading historian of the McCarthy-era witch hunts, The Lost Soul of Higher Education, reveals a system in peril—and defends the vital role of higher education in our democracy.

I want you to understand even though you have a disability God has given you a ministry to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ!

And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation. To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and HATH COMMITTED UNTO US THE WORD OF RECONCILIATION” 2 Corinthians5:17-18 KJV

I am amazed and fascinated by the variety of calls that each person experiences and makes during his or her lifetime. We are all bombarded by calls, yet I realize that we cannot exist without them. This books chronology of the variety of calls speaks to one specific callthe call to salvation. Many from different lifestyles, social status, and points of view responded to this call and experienced a rewarding and complete life in service to God. The path to this enriched life was not easy for the many that chose to accept the call. Persecution, imprisonment, beatings, and other atrocities are documented and outlined between the covers of this book. Yet irrespective of the obstacles, perseverance and victory won the day. From a biblical perspective, God began the call in the book of Genesis. Through his divine foreknowledge, he knew what mans response would be, yet he still made the call. The accounts of the many trailblazers described in this book have left their footprints in the sands of time as a testimony that decisions made have eternal consequences. The author hopes that close examination of the lives lived will be a source of encouragement to respond positively to the call.
