The Future of Christian Learning: An Evangelical and Catholic Dialogue
Evangelicals and Roman Catholics have been responsible for the establishment of many colleges and universities in America. Until recently, however, they have taken very different approaches to the subject of education and have viewed one anothers traditions with suspicion. In this volume, Mark Noll and James Turner offer reassessments of the two traditions. Noll, writing from an evangelical perspective, and Turner, from a Roman Catholic perspective, consider the respective strengths and weaknesses of each approach and what they might learn from the other. The authors then provide brief responses to each others essays.

Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time
Some failures lead to phenomenal successes, and this American nurse's unsuccessful attempt to climb K2, the world's second tallest mountain, is one of them. Dangerously ill when he finished his climb in 1993, Mortenson was sheltered for seven weeks by the small Pakistani village of Korphe; in return, he promised to build the impoverished town's first school, a project that grew into the Central Asia Institute, which has since constructed more than 50 schools across rural Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The Passionate Teacher: A Practical Guide
This guide shows how to bridge the gap between the passionate ideals all teachers have and the realities of day-to-day frustrations in the classroom. Combining actual accounts of teachers who have successfully brought enthusiasm into their classrooms with philosophy and practical advice, Robert Fried proves that passion is learnable - that it's not a mysterious trait of personality. The Passionate Teacher shows you how to put passion to work by introducing you to the challenges of a new brand of teaching. You'll discover how to develop partnerships in which teachers are fellow learners working alongside students; limit what you teach so that you get to the heart of a subject; inspire students to produce quality work that's applicable to the real world; confront the obstacles to learning that Fried refers to as "The Game of School"; and test new approaches to teaching both specific lessons as well as entire courses. -From the Publisher

The Call
For Guiness, far bigger than jobs and accomplishments and higher than ideas of self-fulfillment, calling does more than give purpose and meaning to lives—it completes God's plan.

Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, A Man Who Would Cure the World
Physician, Harvard professor, infectious-disease specialist, anthropologist, Farmer was brought up in a bus and on a boat, and in medical school found his life’s calling: to diagnose and cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. This magnificent book shows how radical change can be fostered in situations that seem insurmountable, and it also shows how a meaningful life can be created, as Farmer, both a leader in international health and a doctor who finds time to make house calls in Boston and the mountains of Haiti—blasts through convention to get results.

I Will Not Die an Unlived Life
Twenty years ago, faced with a life-threatening illness, Dawna Markova began a journey of rediscovery. This book follows her path to finding deeper meaning in life. As she points out, people can continue to feel powerless and live habitual lives - or they can make the choice to follow their passion. "In a similar way to A Gift from the Sea, the readers of this book are invited to accompany me on a journey to come to know more intimately the value and purpose of their lives."
