"To write of the conflict within, to be wronged by life and still feel blessed to be living. To know that wrong was just a part of bigger plan of right. This collection essays a reflection into touching a realm, a dimension, we only feel deep within, and are too scared to talk about. This work is a belief in goodness even in the worst of souls, and a belief of filling unimaginable abyss of chaos grief and darkness in human beings, with love light and faith. It is for all the people who have been at the turning points of their lives and have sensed a lower band in all they fail to do and an upper hand which comes to their rescue. It’s for everyone out there who understands that love and pain are inseparable, that angels and devils do exist and we all have a part of both in us. It’s all about which one we love more, the devil to kiss him and make him go the sleep or the angel to challenge and make him go much higher. This short collection is a trial at both communication and silence, because that’s where our innermost or the supreme, as we call it, resides"

The dramatic insider account of why we invaded Iraq, the motivations that drove it, and the frustrations of those who tried and failed to stop it, leading to the most costly misadventure in US history. A single disastrous choice in the wake of 9/11-the decision to use force to remove Saddam Hussein from power-did enormous damage to the wealth, well-being, and reputation of the United States. Few errors in U.S. foreign policy have had longer-lasting or more harmful consequences. Yet how the decision came to be made remains shrouded in mystery and mythology. To this day, even the principal architects of the war cannot agree on it. Michael Mazarr has interviewed dozens of players involved in the deliberations about the invasion of Iraq and has reviewed all the documents so far declassified. He paints a devastating of portrait of an administration fueled by righteous conviction yet undercut by chaotic processes, rivalrous agencies, and competing egos. But more than the product of one bungling administration, the invasion of Iraq emerges here as a tragically typical example of modern U.S. foreign policy fiascos. Leap of Faith asks profound questions about the limits of US power and the accountability for its use. It offers lessons urgently relevant to stave off similar disasters-today and in the future.

Part one of "Leap of Faith From Fear to Fulfillment" is a wonderful source of encouragement, empowerment and enlightenment. The chapters, like rungs on a ladder, carefully guide the reader to hold on, act upon their desires and embrace the opportunity to live their dreams. As they courageously leap to their Divine right place in life they truly experience the AHHH of fulfillment. The pages are also speckled with some of my own personal experiences. Part two has proven to be a healing and very rewarding experience for all those who graciously accepted my invitation to share their "Pearls of Wisdom," " Reiki Experiences and Leaps of Faith," and "Poetry."

A Cosmic Leap of Faith

An Authorial, Structural, and Theological Investigation of the Cosmic Christology in Col. 1:15-20

Among the array of christologies embodied within New Testament literature, the so-called "hymn" of Colossians 1: 15-20 offers a unique and invaluable contribution to contemporary theological and inter-religious discourse. This is because it conveys what is arguably the highest christological affirmation within the canon. Pizzuto contends that the hymn is a creative and faith-filled composition by the same deutero-Pauline author of the Colossians epistle itself and demonstrates that there is an inextricable relationship between the chiastic structure of Col 1: 15-20 and a proper understanding of its provenance, authorship and theology. Although the hymn echoes theological motifs consistent with Second Temple Judaism and loosely reflects a number of syncretistic influences, it is fundamentally the novelty of the "Christ-event," - the historical impact of Jesus of Nazareth - that has been most influential in determining the christological categories of Col 1: 15-20 and its larger epistolary framework. Pizzuto thus defends the overall integrity of the hymn against those who would assert that it reflects a pre-Christian or pre-Colossians origin. He concludes that Col 1: 15-20 represents something of a "leap" beyond Pauline christology into a new and unequivocal conviction of the cosmic implications of the Cross.

A vivid novel about ingenuity and hard slog, crooks and dreamers, bootleggers and love. Billy is a young, impressionable dreamer. In 1907, he strikes off on his own, keen to prove himself an able worker on the new railroad. It's being cut through steep mountainsides and across deep gullies to join the two ends of the Main Trunk Line. Also drawn to the remote worker settlements are miners from Denniston, young men fresh off the boat, sly-groggers, temperance campaigners, women following their menfolk, local Maori and a varied assortment of people after a new life or a quick buck. Among them is a preacher, Gabriel Locke, who is running from a shady past and determined to avoid the daily grind. With untimely and suspicious deaths, the horrendous weather, impossible deadlines and the rugged landscape, it will take a lot more than a leap of faith for this disparate group to complete the railroad and build the magnificent Makatote viaduct . . .

A Leap of Faith is a collection of brotherhood and sisterhood of military veterans post 9/11, each with their own story to share and suffering from PTSD to IED injuries. Each Soldier faced varying hurdles on their journey leading up to the military and transitioning back to civilian life. ?The women Veterans revealed a special vulnerability undergoing the drastic change? and uncomfortable truths about double standards regarding gender in the military.? It is our desire that these stories will deepen the understanding of how poorly the military prepares its Soldiers for the high-stakes shift from deployment back to civilian life.? As I interviewed the men and women who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, they all came back with the same message. And that was after America was attacked on 9/11, they wanted to do something to help and enlisted in the military. It was in that moment that I realized they each took a leap of faith, not knowing what was ahead of them. But they knew what they were leaving behind and were intent on protecting it; hence, the book title emerged as A Leap of Faith: The Men and Women Who Served Post 9/11. Their faith also emerged as strength and resonates through their incredible stories. Each veteran story is preceded by their favorite Psalm.

As a girl, she would rush home from school to read the latest newspaper comics episode of Little Annie Rooney, an orphan who suffered under the iron fist of Miss Meaney, the director. Back then, Alcyon dreamed of someday founding an orphanage where children were loved and happy. Suddenly she was living her dream. Life was dangerous, scary. The rebels were watching, but the children were blooming. When I see the color creeping into their cheeks and the light dawning in their eyes, she said, I can't think of any place else I would rather be! This is the story of International Children's Care, an organization totally dependent upon prayer and private donations. From its humble origins in Guatemala during the brutal civil war, God worked one miracle after another to protect the Flecks as they brought hope to a generation of orphans. Meet a severely brain-damaged infant who grows up to be the smartest person in her class. And discover the sequel to Child of the Crossfire, as Salvador, the hero, falls in love, becomes a minister, and is reunited with his mother, who sings once again the songs she sang to him as a child. And to think it all began with a voice--a message from God that nerved her for a life of daring service: Why are you so afraid? Don't you know you have a Father who loves you?
