A searing portrait of the racial dynamics that lie inescapably at the heart of our nation, told through the turbulent history of the city of St. Louis. From Lewis and Clark's 1804 expedition to the 2014 uprising in Ferguson, American history has been made in St. Louis. And as Walter Johnson shows in this searing book, the city exemplifies how imperialism, racism, and capitalism have persistently entwined to corrupt the nation's past. St. Louis was a staging post for Indian removal and imperial expansion, and its wealth grew on the backs of its poor black residents, from slavery through redlining and urban renewal. But it was once also America's most radical city, home to anti-capitalist immigrants, the Civil War's first general emancipation, and the nation's first general strike -- a legacy of resistance that endures. A blistering history of a city's rise and decline, The Broken Heart of America will forever change how we think about the United States.

Today, by the grace of God, America is still a modern-day Promised Land. But as is--not for long. Why? Instead of grateful hearts, most American Christians give back to God a little, some, or at best, most of their hearts.This curse of lukewarm Christianity is killing our churches, destroying our nation and breaking the heart of our loving God. In this book you will discover: - The true source of America's greatness--proven by all History - The connection between our dying churches and our falling nation - Why American Christians are mostly to blame - The One and Only cure for the curse among us For every American Christian, Randy's work is a powerful but loving call--back to our nation's God-given destiny--goodness. Today, the world wonders, "Is America worth one good man's life?" Our Founders believed it. We believed it once. This book will help us believe it again! Randy has been a church planter, a minister and now a full-time author. Having lived in the birthplace of America for over two decades, he has become very passionate for both God and Country. He and his wife now live near his hometown of Mooringsport, Louisiana where he continues to work on his upcoming books.

Reforming the Broken Heart of Leadership

Author: Fred Meadows

Dynamic leaders are created from the inside out. They are those individuals who have discovered that their identity as leaders are found in the integrity of being a child of the creator God, rather than being shaped by their abilities, performances, and successes. This book uncovers the underlying reality of why Christian leaders stray off the path of faithfully living out their calling. Centered in the formative spirituality of Fr. Adrian van Kaam, Dr. Fred Meadows links the many anomalies of leadership to what van Kaam labels as functionalism—a self-sufficient mode of operation, initiated by internal pride that pushes us to define ourselves in terms of our accomplishments … we are what we do! Functionalism blocks our ability to see from a higher perspective and to experience transcendence. By rediscovering the ancient practices of silence, solitude, meditation on the Word (lectio divina), journaling, prayer, and practicing community, pastors, ministry leaders, and laity alike can begin the process of reforming broken leadership. Acknowledging their souls as well as their abilities, leaders are able to renew and reconnect with their calling, and minister out of the overflow of God’s presence, while maintaining a healthy and dynamic inner life that fosters being conformed to the image and life of Jesus Christ.
