George Best needs little introduction. A legend in his own lifetime, he is undoubtedly the greatest footballer the UK has ever produced. Blessed with an extraordinary gift he brought a beauty and grace to the game never before seen. But Best was unable to cope with the success and fame his football genius brought. His fabled story is littered with tales of women and sex and, of course, alcohol. Much has been written about Best, but very little substantiated by the man himself. That is until George Best opened his heart and engaged us in one of the most exhilarating life stories for years, Blessed. In his own words George recounts the halcyon days at Manchester United, the big games and European Cup win of '68. And then there's the heartbreaking truth about the death of his mother and his struggles with alcohol that forced him to face up to a life without drink. Blessed reveals the man behind the up-for-a-laugh, boozy, womanizing stereotype that had dogged George Best for so long. Open and honest about his mistakes, George is also incredibly candid about his triumphs, his regrets, and, only three years before his death, what he had hoped for the future. 'Don't coach him, he's a genius' Sir Matt Busby 'Unquestionably the greatest' Sir Alex Ferguson

For once, I intend now to write strictly about what I know best, my life and its circumstances. I want to tell the story of what it has been like for a middle-class American descended from Italian and German immigrants. It is the story of a girl who grew up and found her law vocation during the 50s through 70s and who happens to be blind and hard of hearing, and who now has used a series of wonderful guide dogs as traveling companions. I have referred to my life as blessed in the title, because the hand of Divine Providence has been at work since my conception in shaping me and promoting whatever goodness or success I may have attained, both directly and through the human beings in my life. The imperfections and errors that remain, which I hope to continue to remedy with His help, are the evidence that this Divine work is, as Benjamin Franklin said in his epitaph, a work in progress, being continually revised and corrected by the Divine Author. The sub-title comes from the theme of the discussion group in which I participated during my Cursillo retreat, Travelers to Emmaus. Like the two discouraged, disillusioned pilgrims who fled from Jerusalem after the death and still disbelieved resurrection of Jesus, I am still in the lifelong process of finding the Lord.

Blessed Be, is a true story and Christian testimony of (Judy Ann) Julia Wells. Julia is a hard working wife, mother, and grandmother. She commutes eighty miles round trip to her job at a Gottschalk's Department Store, in Carson City, Nevada. Her story begins with the introductionexplaining how Roger, her husband of 30 years, has been diagnosed with cancer, and how the Lord put it on Julia's heart to write this book. The story then reflects back to her childhood, and family background. It tells of a small girl's insecurities. Her story is one of abandonment, abuse, molestation and losses. This is a fast paced story that gives you reason to laugh while rubbing the tears from your eyes. Julias story goes on to tell of her love for music, which gives her the courage to write to Elvis Presley about what is happening in her life. It tells how Elvis became personally involved. She explains how she continued to look for love and acceptance in all the wrong places. While looking for her father, or a father like image, the Lord was knocking on the door to her heart. It tells a common story of finding God, then taking Him for granted. Putting the Lord on a shelf like an old used Bible to collect dust and only praying, or asking, Why me? when problems occur in her life. When Julia learned that she was a co-dependent, and was fighting with depression, the Lord knocks her feet out from under her. That is when He spoke to her saying, I picked you up and I carried you. I am with you and I forgive you. The Lord continued to work miracles in Julia's life, by healing her of cancer. The Lord gave her the strength and faith to make it through four deaths in twenty-one days, while having oral surgery and living in a tent-trailer with no running water. If that wasn't enough, He sent a guardian angel to protect her from an impending auto accident and the blessings continued. So many things happened in Julia's life that almost anyone can relate to some part of her stay. It's a must read for anyone who has suffered from childhood abuse, molestation, dependency or codependency. Julia is a member of Al-Anon; she has been an Al-Ateen sponsor. She has been a Sunday school teacher. Julia's greatest blessing is the love of her Father, God; and her family. This book has song lyrics and scriptures that work with her story or chapters. There are poems that Julia wrote during the times of which she's telling you about in her book. And of course there is that testimony and witness that her prayers will reach the people to whom the Lord has intended.

Climate Change and the Practice of Restraint

For decades, Sallie McFague has lent her voice and her theological imagination to addressing and advocating for the most important issues of our time. In doing so, she has influenced an entire generation, and empowered countless people in their efforts to put religion in the service of meeting human needs in difficult times. In this timely book, McFague recalls her readers to the practices of restraint. In a world bent on consumption it is imperative that people of religious faith realize the significant role they play in advocating for the earth, and a more humane life for all. The root of restraint, she argues, rests in the ancient Christian notion of Kenosis, or self-emptying. By introducing Kenosis through the life stories of John Woolman, Simone Weil, and Dorothy Day, McFague brings a powerful theological concept to bear in a winsome and readable way.

This account of the life of St. Ignatius, dictated by himself, is considered by the Bollandists the most valuable record of the great Founder of the Society of Jesus. The editors of the Stimmen Aus Maria Laach, the German review, as well as those of the English magazine, The Month, tell us that it, more than any other work, gives an insight into the spiritual life of St. Ignatius. Few works in ascetical literature, except the writings of St. Teresa and St. Augustine, impart such a knowledge of the soul. To understand fully the Spiritual Exercises, we should know something of the man who wrote them. In this life of St. Ignatius, told in his own words, we acquire an intimate knowledge of the author of the Exercises. We discern the Saint's natural disposition, which was the foundation of his spiritual character. We learn of his conversion, his trials, the obstacles in his way, the heroism with which he accomplished his great mission.

Translated from the critical edition by John Clarke, OCD, 3rd ed. (1997). Includes Bibliography, general Index, and 11 photos. Two and a half years before her death in 1897 at the age of 24, as Thérèse Martin began writing down her childhood memories at the request of her blood sisters in the Lisieux Carmel, few could have guessed the eventual outcome. Yet this "story of my soul," first published in 1898 in a highly edited version, quickly became a modern spiritual classic, read by millions and translated into dozens of languages around the world. Decades later, in response to growing requests from scholars and devotees of the Saint, a facsimile edition of the manuscripts appeared, along with more popular French editions of what the Saint had actually written. Here, expressed with all of Thérèse's original spontaneity and fervor, we rediscover the great themes of her spirituality: confidence and love, the "little way," abandonment to God's merciful love, and her "mission" in the church and world today. Father John Clarke's acclaimed translation, first published in 1975 and now accepted as the standard throughout the English-speaking world, is a faithful and unaffected rendering of Thérèse's own words, from the original manuscripts. This new edition, prepared for the centenary of the Saint's death, includes a select bibliography of recent works in English on Thérèse, along with a new referencing system now widely used in studies of her doctrine.
