Kara Tippetts knows the ordinary days of mothering four kids, the joy of watching her children grow ... and the devestating reality of stage-four cancer. In The Hardest Peace, Kara doesn't offer answers for when living is hard, but she asks us to join her in moving away from fear and control and toward peace and grace. Most of all, she draws us back to the God who is with us, in the mundane and the suffering, and who shapes even our pain into beauty. Winner of the 2015 Christian Book Award® in the Inspiration category.

“I was here. I saw beauty. I embraced it.”—Kara Tippetts How do you live out extravagant love in the everyday moments? How do you celebrate grace when your life turns out differently than the one you dreamed? Kara Tippetts discovered how to find joy in the small moments of life. She learned how to hold tight to hope even while battling intense physical and emotional pain. And she lived out the truth that God can redeem any story. In her final book, Kara offers gentle reflections on living and dying well. She invites us to cultivate soft hearts even when we face great disappointment. Her ideas for living are hard-won, wrestled with in the crucible of family, illness, and faith. And her constant reminder is that whether we are in the midst of dark days or mundane moments Jesus is always there, life is surprisingly beautiful, and God is forever good.

Eventually, most terrorist and guerrilla groups are defeated by governments or gradually die off - sometimes becoming political parties, democratically participating in the non-violent governance of their states. Yet some terrorist and guerrilla groups maintain military capabilities, using violence and democratic participation simultaneously. Here, Krista E. Wiegand examines the different political strategies that Islamist terrorist and guerrilla groups use to achieve their political objectives. Focussing on Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine, Wiegand skilfully reveals the factors that determine why Islamist militant groups become involved in governance as political parties, how mainstream governments may or may not accept them as legitimate, why some groups like al- Gama'a al-Islamiya in Egypt renounce guerrilla tactics, and how some groups govern whilst employing political violence. Bombs and Ballots is a valuable contribution to the study of state-society relations in the Middle East, exposing the blurred line between terrorist activity and governance.

We are challenged by lifes difficulties and by people not doing what we want. We desire the world to be different than it is, and it refuses to comply. Inner peace is the only answer, but we cannot get to inner peace using gurus, seminars, workshops, or meditation, as good as those may be. This book cuts through all the esoteric advice and gets directly at what we have to understand about ourselves and have to do to attain inner peace. The key: Only with help from those who care for us can we begin the journey.

You have struggled with doubt and skepticism yourself. As you present your faith and think about it, you find it difficult to share it with nonbelievers. This is not because you are afraid to, but because skeptics just don't seem to want to understand. This contributes to your doubt and skepticism. Still, though you struggle with your faith, you find that what you do believe is congruent with the Christian tradition and with Scripture itself. This work does not attempt to convince the reader to believe a certain way. Rather, it is simply the expression of faith from a modern circuit rider. It serves as a facilitator of expressing faith, of thinking about it, and hopefully stimulating others to express their faith in the contexts of skepticism and traditional acceptance. Should you disagree with the points of the book, great! I simply hope that you will present your own version in some form. Maybe you'll write your own book.
