4. So Far from Home Lost and Found in Our Brave New World (Large Print 16pt) - Margaret J. Wheatley

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Currently in stock

We live in a time of increasing polarization and irrationality, like a Tower of Babel with no distinction between fact and opinion, where information no longer changes minds. In cyberspace, we are bombarded with constant distractions and narcissistic self - making activities. Instant judgment and blame have replaced rational thinking. Organizations are bloated by bureaucracy and meaningless measures. Those working for positive change become exhausted, ill, and heartsick as their good work is ignored, underfunded, or attacked.
We need to acknowledge that we're lost in a world far different than we hoped for. We need new maps to navigate our brave new world. In Leadership and the New Science, Wheatley provided encouraging maps for how to design organizations based on living systems' capacity for inclusion, change, and adaptation. But in the twenty years since that book's publication, she's seen that in spite of our best efforts, the world that has emerged is on a destructive trajectory that won't be reversed by our working harder, finding new methods, or forming better networks.
But Wheatley has not written a book to increase our despair. Quite the contrary. Her intention is to inspire us to do our work with greater resolve and energy, using maps that won't mislead us. So Far from Home offers maps of two kinds. Using the newest of the new sciences, Wheatley shows how different dynamics interacted to create this harsh new world. A second kind of map invites us to choose a new role for ourselves as warriors for the human spirit. We develop the skills we need most - insight, bravery, decency, compassion - as we look honestly at this complex, difficult world. Clarity gives us enduring strength to discover our right work and create meaningful lives in this dark time.
So Far from Home is a startlingly honest, profoundly reflective, and yet paradoxically down - to - earth book rooted in the day - to - day experiences we all share but seen with fresh eyes. It is both affirming and provoking, calling us to reexamine our expectations and redefine our role for the work ahead. It is Wheatley's most personal, heartfelt work to date.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Let Philip Weigall transport you to your favourite river with this beautifully illustrated tribute to the art of fly fishing The fly fisherman is a sportsman like no other - he loves the sunlight dancing off a trout stream, the quiet reverie of an undisturbed lake, the reliance on intuition and instinct, the surreal beauty of his prey, his sport's ambiguous relationship with time, the heart-stopping moment of a surface strike by a large trout, the glory of a magnificent catch. 'I felt the first branches pluck the line like bony fingers on a guitar string, and then the trout was gone. I reeled in a broken tippet, simultaneously exhilarated and disappointed. What can you do with a fish like that?' Take a journey through a Fishing Season, a year full of challenges and victories, disappointments and frustrations, but most of all, quiet happiness. Philip's prose is lucid, and his reflection on the sport he loves is engaging. Avid anglers will find plenty to love in Fishing Season, but this is a book that also appeals to a wider audience, opening the door to a world few of us experience. Lively, entertaining anecdotes, whether lovingly remembered or wryly bemoaned, will have you itching to pick up a rod and undertake your own adventure. A professional fly fishing guide and writer, Philip's years of experience and time on the water have been sorted through and summarised in Fishing Season. What results is the most exciting book on this topic in many years. Fishing Season is a gorgeous production and would make an excellent gift.

8. The Overcomers (Large Print 16pt) - Richard Wurmbrand

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

God's imperatives for us - to practice peacemaking, love others and build community - all begin with authentic dialogue.
Think of an issue that makes your blood boil. Now imagine lunch with a friend who is just as passionate about it - on the other side. How can the two of you even broach the issue, let alone hear each other with curiosity and compassion?
The answer begins long before the lunch does, by learning to engage dialogue as a habit of the heart - an inner transformation that the ancient practices of Christian spirituality can address. This highly readable and timely guide to restoring dialogue shows Christians of many stripes how to cultivate this transformation while preparing them to approach their adversaries with curiosity, civility and compassion. This book:
Examines the obstacles that keep us from dialogue: black - and - white thinking, our ''distraction lifestyle,'' the fear of change and more.
Explores the strengths of character from which healthy dialogue springs - and the work of the soul that cultivates them.
Shows how to enhance the work of the soul by engaging the world around us.
Lays out practical guidelines for dialogue and how they work in an imperfect world.
Includes extended anecdotes of dialogue in action, from resolutions of interpersonal conflict to difficult dialogues on some of the most divisive issues of our age.
Uses provocative questions at the end of each chapter to stimulate group discussion and individual reflection.

9. Within Sight of Home! - A Series of Readings for the Aged - Forbes Winslow

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 6.49  - Click book title for availability and further details

Every human being has his own peculiar sorrows and trials, known very often only to himself, unsuspected even by his dearest friends-but none the less hard to bear for all that. As life goes on, and we become what is termed "grown up," our anxieties and cares grow up with us too. Every day, every hour, has its troubles; were it not for the grace of God-we would be vanquished and utterly cast down. As life goes on-a change takes place in the very strongest of us, according to the law which works throughout nature, and causes all things to tend to decay. As we become aged: our health and strength begin to fail us, unaccustomed pains seize our limbs, we are easily fatigued, our memory is impaired, our hands shake, our sight is dim, our hearing imperfect; we begin to feel that we are shut out from the world, that we are out of date, that we are looked upon by our young people as belonging to a distant generation of beings, as uninteresting relics of the past. In Within Sight of Home! Forbes Winslow addresses growing older giving peace to the process and reminders of hope for believers.

10. Leonardo DiCaprio The Biography - Douglas Wight

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

I'm the king of the world!' That was the cry from Leonardo DiCaprio as he stood astride the bow in Titanic - the movie that would go on to smash all records, raking in a whopping GBP1.1 billion worldwide. Now, few Hollywood movers and shakers would dispute that statement as Leo has rocketed to become the highest paid actor in the world, earning as estimated GBP50 million in 2011 alone. And his position looks sets to be secure for some time to come as the release of the new 3D version of James Cameron's epic heralds another sensational year in the life of Hollywood's hottest talent, that will also see him take on the lead role in a new adaptation of The Great Gatsby and see him cast as a villain in Quentin Tarantino's new blockbuster Django Unchained. It's a far cry from the heart - throb's humble beginnings when he had to scrape for parts in TV commericals and soap operas before catching the eye in Baz Luhrmann's stylish Romeo and Juliet and then achieving worldwide superstardom with Titanic. Cementing his reputation with captivating performances in films like Catch Me If You Can and The Departed, DiCaprio won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Howard Hughes in The Aviator. A keen environmentalist and conservationist, he has given millions to good causes around the globe and has never been shy about wearing his political ideas on his sleeve. Yet, although he's spent over 15 years at the top of his profession, Leonardo remains something of an enigma. He has famously dated some of the world's most beautiful women but seems no nearer to settling down and his often daring movie choices suggest someone still striving for perfection despite his stunning successes.

With poems that are at once deadly serious and poignantly humorous, Echo Gods and Silent Mountains is the work of a poet who cannot live or create without uprooting himself to our world's most misunderstood and misrepresented regions.

Betty Webb's humorous Gunn Zoo series debuted with The Anteater of Death, followed by The Koala of Death.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

For the past half - century, C. Peter Wagner has been at the leading edge of the key spiritual paradigm shifts which have been accompanied by major moves of the Holy Spirit. In the 1960s the missionary movement in South America was at its peak - and Dr. Wagner was there. In the 1970s he was a recognized authority in the church - growth movement. In the 1980s he taught a popular course at Fuller Seminary with Vineyard movement leader John Wimber that advocated praying healing for the sick, spiritual mapping, identificational repentance and spiritual warfare; Dr. Wagner coined the phrase ''Third Wave'' to describe this fresh move of the Holy Spirit - the impact of which is still being felt today. In the 1990s he became a leader of the New Apostolic Reformation, and in the new millennium he has championed the Dominion Mandate, adopting the Seven Mountain (or 7M) template for reclaiming the culture for God's Kingdom.
For five decades, Dr. Wagner has led the Church from one great move of God to the next, riding the wave of the Spirit through changes he never imagined when he first answered God's call to ministry. In Wrestling with Alligators, Prophets and Theologians, C. Peter Wagner tells, for the first time, his personal story of ongoing transformation. Readers will get a close - up view of the seismic shifts in the Church's recent history, through the eyes of one of the only people to have seen it all unfold.
