Discover your ability to be brave in times of adversity with Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously—from one of the greatest spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. Courage is not the absence of fear, says Osho. It is, rather, the total presence of fear, with the courage to face it. This book provides a bird’s-eye view of the whole terrain—where fears originate, how to understand them, and how to call on your inner strength to confront them. In the process, Osho proposes that whenever we are faced with uncertainty and change in our lives, it is actually a cause for celebration. Instead of trying to hang on to the familiar and the known, we can learn to enjoy these situations as opportunities for adventure and for deepening our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Having courage is more than just heroic acts in exceptional circumstances. It’s a necessity to lead authentic and fulfilling lives on a day-to-day basis. This is the courage to change when change is needed, the courage to stand up for our own truth, even against the opinions of others, and the courage to embrace the unknown in spite of our fears—in our relationships, in our careers, or in the ongoing journey of understanding who we are and why we are here. Courage also features meditation techniques specifically designed by Osho to help people cope with their fears. Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

Too often, Christ followers are content to live inside the church walls with other Christians. Jesus calls us to shatter our comfort zones and dangerously share the love we have found in him with people whose lives are characterized by brokenness, self-sufficiency, emotional poverty, and rejection. Discipleship is the process of intentionally and thoughtfully introducing the grace of Jesus to these people so that their hearts will bulge with love, their souls will brim with life, and their faces will brighten with light as they come to intimately know him. How is this accomplished? In these pages, unbelievers who became disciples of Christ reveal what factors influenced them to follow Jesus. The research revealed that discipling is an intentional process that is most effective when our lives reflect the character of Jesus. The author explains discipleship as a relational process that can be understood and effectively accomplished by virtually any follower of Jesus.

The first book to provide a strong theoretical examination of the political ideologies of Brasillach, Vailland, and Malraux, Dr. Tame's study deals in particular with their contributions to the concept of the ideological hero. From different positions of the political spectrum, the three twentieth-century French writers produced what has been called politically committed literature. The principal concepts explored are of "Fascist man" in two novels by Brasillach, the figure of the "Bolshevik" in three novels by Vailland, and that of the Communist hero in three novels by Malraux. One of Dr. Tame's significant findings is that the various images of the ideological hero presented by the three novelists have more in common with one another than has been generally supposed.

Kealy Ryerson has everything a New York socialite could want: wealth, power, a devoted husband and loving children. She was at the salon, getting her hair done, when her cell phone rang and her life changed forever. It was her husband, a high-profile defense lawyer. Run! he said. Take the children and get out of the country. Go now. Trust no one. Within a half hour he was dead, shot down in the street as he left lunch with the district attorney. Kealy cannot run. Her apartment is under surveillance, and she can't get her passport or any money. Her credit cards have been cancelled. She's wanted by the police. She and her teen-age kids are on their own, on the streets, with only her wits to keep them alive - her wits, and some surprising new friends. Kealy is determined to discover who has done this to her and her family. She discovers that she has a invisible advantage--because without her fancy clothes and expensive make-up, her jewels and her hair stylist, no one recognizes her. Not the police, not her husband's partner, not her best friends. A poor woman of a certain age is someone that no one really looks at. But she can watch them. She can follow them. She can use their blindness against them, and walk invisible among the people who want her dead.
