It shows how, despite incredible dangers and obstacles, one humble man and a tribe of primitive, violent Indians by joining together in simple obedience have been transformed forever by the sovereign will of god. This book, which details Olson’s missionary work and events from the 1970s to the present, will stir and encourage the hearts of readers to serve and follow God passionately.

What happens when a nineteen-year-old boy leaves home and heads into the jungles to evangelize a murderous tribe of South American Indians? For Bruce Olson, it meant capture, disease, terror, loneliness, and torture. But what he discovered by trial and error has revolutionized then world of missions. Bruchko, which has sold more than 300,000 copies worldwide, has been called “more fantastic and harrowing than anything Hollywood could concoct.” Living with the Motilone Indians since 1961, Olson has won the friendship of four presidents of Colombia and has made appearances before the United Nations because of his efforts. Bruchko includes the story of his 1988 kidnapping by communist guerrillas and the nine months of captivity that followed. This revised version of Olson’s story will amaze you and remind you that simple faith in Christ can make anything possible. “[Bruchko is] an all-time missionary classic. Bruce Olson is a modern missionary hero who has modeled for us in our time the reaching of the unreached tribes.” --Loren Cunningham Co-founder, Youth With A Mission

The Bible isn't meant to be left unquestioned; it's meant to be opened and read and questioned. And everyone has questions about the Bible—from the senior pastor of the big church down the road to the guest at the hotel off the interstate. Where did it come from? Who wrote it? Why are people so inspired by it (or fearful of it)? What does it have to do with my life? Hal Seed takes you on a tour into and behind the Bible, so that you get to know it and the God who makes himself known in it.

We all know that higher education has changed dramatically over the past two decades. Historically a time of exploration and self-discovery, the college years have been narrowed toward an increasingly singular goal—career training—and college students these days forgo the big questions about who they are and how they can change the world and instead focus single-mindedly on their economic survival. In The Purposeful Graduate, Tim Clydesdale elucidates just what a tremendous loss this is, for our youth, our universities, and our future as a society. At the same time, he shows that it doesn’t have to be this way: higher education can retain its higher cultural role, and students with a true sense of purpose—of personal, cultural, and intellectual value that cannot be measured by a wage—can be streaming out of every one of its institutions. The key, he argues, is simple: direct, systematic, and creative programs that engage undergraduates on the question of purpose. Backing up his argument with rich data from a Lilly Endowment grant that funded such programs on eighty-eight different campuses, he shows that thoughtful engagement of the notion of vocational calling by students, faculty, and staff can bring rich rewards for all those involved: greater intellectual development, more robust community involvement, and a more proactive approach to lifelong goals. Nearly every institution he examines—from internationally acclaimed research universities to small liberal arts colleges—is a success story, each designing and implementing its own program, that provides students with deep resources that help them to launch flourishing lives. Flying in the face of the pessimistic forecast of higher education’s emaciated future, Clydesdale offers a profoundly rich alternative, one that can be achieved if we simply muster the courage to talk with students about who they are and what they are meant to do.

Nur wer Grenzen überschreitet, kann die Welt verändern Jackson, Mississippi, 1962: Die junge Skeeter ist frustriert. Nach dem Studium verbringt sie die Tage auf der elterlichen Baumwollfarm, als einzige ihrer Freundinnen ohne einen Ring am Finger. Sehr zum Missfallen der Mutter. Doch der Mann, mit dem ihre Freundinnen sie verkuppeln wollen, ist ein hochnäsiger Snob. Und dann ist auch noch ihr schwarzes Kindermädchen, bei dem sie stets Trost fand, spurlos verschwunden. Skeeter wünscht sich nur eins: Sie will weg aus dem engen Jackson und als Journalistin in New York leben. Und um diesem Ziel näher zu kommen, verbündet sie sich mit zwei Dienstmädchen, die ebenso unzufrieden sind wie sie: Aibileen zieht inzwischen das siebzehnte weiße Kind auf. Doch nach dem Unfalltod ihres einzigen Sohnes ist etwas in ihr zerbrochen. Und Minny ist auf der Suche nach einer neuen Stelle. Sie ist bekannt für ihre Kochkünste, aber sie ist auch gefürchtet: Denn Minny trägt das Herz auf der Zunge. Und gemeinsam beschließen die drei außergewöhnlichen Frauen, gegen die Konventionen ihrer Zeit zu verstoßen und etwas zu wagen. Denn sie alle haben das Gefühl zu ersticken und wollen etwas verändern – in ihrer Stadt und in ihrem eigenen Leben.
