Things We Forget from the Author: J. J. Penn. Sometimes the most important things in life are the ones we forget. This inspiring collection of hand-drawn notes began with a simple premise: It’s worth remembering what’s most important in life, even when you can’t see the bigger picture. From his very first note, written hastily in the backseat of a taxi for the benefit of the next passenger (it said “Never give up”), J. J. Penn has inspired both passersby and devoted online fans with his uplifting and quirky reminders. Every day since then, Penn’s simple notes, created with nothing more than a pen and a sticky pad, have been photographed and then left in public—on a park bench, at a bus stop—anonymously and hopefully, to spread a little goodwill and brighten someone’s day. Collected in book form, they serve as a heartfelt reminder about what matters most.

The Writer S Art from the Author: James J. Kilpatrick. "Writing comes in grades of quality in the fashion of beer and baseball games," says James J. Kilpatrick, "good, better, and best." With the experience of a lifetime of writing, he tells us, he wants to make a few judgment calls. And Jack Kilpatrick, master of the art, is as good as his word. In the tradition of Theodore Bernstein, Edwin Newman, and William Safire, James J. Kilpatrick gives us a finely crafted, witty guide to writing well. Written for laymen and professionals alike, The Writer's Art highlights techniques and examples of good writing. A section of the book called "My Crotchets and Your Crotchets" comprises more than 200 personal judgment calls, often controversial, often funny, on word usage.

Holidays And Holy Days from the Author: Bill Smith. This book, like the sermons that compose it, is intended to heighten our remembrance and appreciation for our nation's holidays and Christian holy days. In one sense, this book is a call to prayer-to get beyond the many words we use to celebrate these days to the one that truly matters-the word that tugs at our heart and opens our eyes to see, like Moses, the ground upon which we walk is holy and we too are called to help create a new world-one where strangers are welcomed, not feared; where love involves patience and kindness, not simply instant gratification; and where each holiday and holy day not only reenacts our family traditions and church rituals, but truly enriches and renews us. Although our holidays and holy days may indeed restore us for work, they play a much more important role in our lives when they allow us to reflect upon who we are and what meaning our lives have, not only for ourselves, but for our world. If any of our holidays and holy days are to be transformed into a time of genuine renewal, perhaps they need to allow for us to reflect upon our lives so we see a bigger picture-one that not only celebrates special days but sees them as opportunities to create a different, more loving and hopeful kind of world. It is my hope that in reading this book, we may hear a word may, however faintly, that calls us to see this bigger picture. Bill grew up in Kansas, graduated from the University of Kansas, and taught social studies to seventh graders before obtaining his seminary degree from Yale Divinity School. During seminary, Bill studied one year at Cambridge University in England and interned another year as youth pastor at the Union Church in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. After serving as a campus minister at Indiana University in the late sixties, he and his wife, Patricia, moved to Washington where he spent thirty-three years ministering to five different churches in the Seattle area. A one-year pulpit exchange in Auckland, New Zealand, and a sabbatical year teaching high school English in Romania provided two enjoyable years abroad. Since retiring from the active ministry, Bill and Patricia have traveled widely and now live on the Washington coast where Bill enjoys gardening, playing tennis, listening to jazz, cheering on his beloved Kansas Jayhawks, and spending time with his son, Mark, daughter, Jennifer, and five grandchildren. Bill previously published a collection of his sermons, Sunday Mornings: Reflections on Life's Meanings.

Misconceptions Of Christianity from the Author: John Marcus. Have you ever looked at the multitude of opinions on Christian doctrine and been confused? If the early church did not teach certain rituals, where did they come from? And what does the Bible say regarding these issues? In Misconceptions of Christianity, Author John Marcus explores many of the major doctrinal stances that do not appear in the Bible or in the very early church. His goal is to show the reader where the doctrines came from (or at least from where the misunderstanding stems) and what the Bible teaches concerning them. He covers topics such as: • Tithing and giving to the church • The doctrines of Mary and her veneration • The gifts of the Spirit, including the gift of tongues • The observance of Christmas and other religious holidays • Demonic possession and spiritual warfare • And many more This book guides readers through the confusion that modern Christianity can bring and leads them straight back to the source—the Bible. Its approach is both insightful and convicting, giving the reader a standard with which to judge his or her own actions instead of a set of rules to follow. With a strong belief that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, John conveys to readers the importance of a Christ-centered theology that stems directly from the Scripture. Author John Marcus has studied theology and lives in New York. Misconceptions of Christianity is his second book.
