Jon Huckins and Jer Swigart offer a theologically compelling, richly personal, and intensely practical set of tools that equip us to join God in the restoration of broken relationships, unjust systems, and global conflicts.

Your Leadership Moment

However, I also began to see that, through my work and invitation into people's
organizational lives, I could serve as a bridge to help to mend the divides. I also
saw that, in a sense, it didn't matter if I was working on the climate directly.

Leading Every Moment Each of us has the potential for a leadership moment. Reading this book will help you find yours.” —Dr. Marty Linsky, faculty at Harvard Kennedy School & author of The Practice of Adaptive Leadership #1 New Release in Business & Money Skills and Office Management You face leadership moments every day. Would you recognize a leadership moment if it came your way? Would you know what to do when it did? You can be a leader. Your Leadership Moment brings adaptive leadership to life for novices and advanced leadership practitioners alike. The framework it provides draws on the extensive personal research, travel, conversations, and reflections of author Eric Martin, a prominent leadership expert. His quest to democratize leadership has taken him around the world―from the White House and corporate boardrooms to the foothills of the Himalayas.

You can change the world. Your Leadership Moment is an unforgettable account of the democratizing leadership of three ordinary people leading extraordinary change. It’s an exciting expansion of Adaptive Leadership―an unconventional and provocative leadership practice developed at Harvard University―that can help anyone learn to lead. It provides practical tools and techniques to discover and leverage your own leadership moments in the service of creating a more beautiful world. In this book you’ll understand: • A Leadership Moment and the key concepts of Adaptive Leadership • How to stop solving the wrong problems and start solving the right problems • How to think politically and mobilize others to make real, positive change Readers of leadership books like The Practice of Adaptive Leadership, Leadership on the Line, or Immunity to Change should read Your Leadership Moment.

The poet's voice is clear, direct, yet artful. The sensibility that prevades these poems is that of a mature woman with an inquiring mind and a strong sense of family attachments. Almost every poem delivers a sidelong irony, a study in contrasts that is always overridden by the sense of common humanity shared by two disparate cultures.

Rhetorics of Religion in American Fiction considers the way in which contemporary American authors address the subject of belief in the post-9/11 Age of Terror. Naydan suggests that after 9/11, fiction by Mohsin Hamid, Laila Halaby, Philip Roth, Don DeLillo, John Updike, and Barbara Kingsolver dramatizes and works to resolve impasses that exist between believers of different kinds at the extremes. These impasses emerge out of the religious paradox that shapes America as simultaneously theocratic and secular, and they exist, for instance, between liberals and fundamentalists, between liberals and certain evangelicals, between fundamentalists and artists, and between fundamentalists of different varieties. Ultimately, Naydan argues that these authors function as literary theologians of sorts and forge a relevant space beyond or between extremes. They fashion faith or lack thereof as hybridized and hence as a negotiation among secularism, atheism, faith, fundamentalism, and fanaticism. In so doing, they invite their readers into contemplations of religious difference and new ways of memorializing 9/11.

In struggling to make sense of her own painful divorce, Mary Lou Redding looked to the Bible where she found guidance and hope. Her intimate book weaves her personal story with those from scripture to help other Christians who are facing divorce find God's grace in the midst of pain.Breaking and Mending looks at the spiritual issues of divorce, rather than the sociological ones, and allows the scriptures to illuminate and heal those who are facing this difficult transition. For example, chapter one deals with broken dreams and uses the story of Hosea and Gomer. Later chapters focus on forgiveness, breaking old patterns, forging a new identity as a single person, and searching for healthy relationships. Honest and straightforward, Redding has written a book which addresses the hard issues of divorce, but always with hope in God's unfolding grace.
