Help Me Find Lisa introduces the reader to many aspects of life education, religion, business, and social relationships through many unique experiences of the Oliver family, especially Lisa, the nine year old daughter, who truly represents the family's phenomenal success, past and present, and heredity and environment, at its best. Parents and caretakers will admire Lisa, the singular personality, who is portrayed as an embodiment of hope for all who look for the best quality in children. "I am a part of all that I have met". Here one senses a feeling there's no need to take over, only to work smart, give others a chance, and let the talents fly. Lisa has a social conscience and listens to it; she has pride and privilege, and uses them wisely; moreover, she holds convictions that endure, even in the darkest hour of her youthful life. This book enlightens, and inspires the good to be better, and the better to be best in the family, community, and the world. A masterpiece for all times.

Volume Five: "Indeed. . . God sets the solitary in families. . . the lonely among those who care. . . Through the efforts of some of those among my church family's pastoral staff, the glass walls began to crumble. . . It was fearful at times, especially when big chunks of those walls fell down leaving me feeling exposed and vulnerable for a time. . . But God in His wisdom had placed the right people in my life at precisely the right time to help me through, to draw me out, and as a result, to bring me to that place of healing and restoration I keep talking about. In light of the past few years, this verse really is a comfort tonight." This book can be read as an account of the lessons God's actively teaching me, or it can be engaged in as a personal or group Bible study. There is quite a bit of Scripture in every chapter, as well as questions to help a person appropriate these lessons into their own life. One of my goals is to share a story that men as well as women can read and glean from. Too often it seems presentations on the Bride of Christ have been geared toward women when Scripture says the Church, who is referred to as the Bride of Christ, is made up of men and women. I write from a women's perspective of course, but it's my desire that men will be able to gather helpful insight, not just women. After all, we are all called to live out the commands of Christ in our everyday life. Will you join me as we learn to live this journey of Faith as the Bride of Christ in everyday life?

Volume Two: "God's been speaking to me so much about His love and how it affects areas of life I never really thought about before, areas that I'm realizing are almost impossible to achieve victory in apart from His love working in me. It honestly amazes me. Truly we can do nothing apart from the transforming work of God's love through the Holy Spirit in our lives. All our best efforts apart from this love are just so much wood, hay and stubble. Imagine what would happen to our churches if more of us made this realization. I have to admit it's a realization fraught with discoveries of just how soiled a heart can be and the needed washing and cleansing that has to happen as a result of the light of God's love being shone on it. But as long as I can keep from recoiling, as long as I can keep choosing to present my heart wide open to my Lord, as long as I don't shrink back from the transforming work going on in my life, then I can look forward to what is ahead." Becoming the Bride of Christ chronicles my personal journey as I learn to live with God as unseen Husband and Father in the home. It's about learning to appropriate many Scriptural concepts that we've overly spiritualized, and bringing them down to where life is lived every day.

Celebrating the spirit of song In A Song to Sing, a Life to Live, Don and Emily Saliers help readers see the connections between Saturday night music and Sunday morning music by exploring the spiritual dimensions of music itself. They tell the stories of their own lives in music, and they share what they have learned and observed about the power of music in human life. They help us appreciate the joy of music and also how music carries us into places of sorrow, where we must go if we are to live with honesty about ourselves and compassion for others. This book is for churchgoers and spiritual seekers alike. Music is described in terms of spiritual practice; it has the power to embrace those who are deeply immersed in the life of Christian faith and speak to those who are spiritual but may question formal religion. The book explores a wide variety of musical traditions and offers an invitation to embrace a broader and deeper vision of the power of music and the spiritual dimensions of attentive listening. "This is a beautiful expression of music as many things--healer, gift, symbol of freedom and community, and agent of change" (Mary Chapin Carpenter).

Music and liturgy seem inseparable, yet we seldom pause to ponder their relationship in depth. In this volume, Kathleen Harmon offers her own insights by creatively exploring the complex interplay between congregational singing and the liturgical celebration of the paschal mystery: ' Harmon asserts that liturgical music, in the form of communal singing, is a vehicle through which the ritual reenactment of the paschal mystery is effected. ' She addresses concrete and practical pastoral applications of the relationship between music and liturgy. She focuses on how the liturgical singing of the assembly creates the collective consciousness of church as the Body of Christ. ' Music, then, is much more than just a component of liturgy; it is, in Harmon's view, absolutely constitutive both of liturgy's deepest essence and its fullest realization. Professional music scholars, graduate students, music directors, and anyone else seeking a sophisticated analysis of liturgical music will find this volume a rich sourcebook of new ideas. Kathleen Harmon, SNDdeN, is the music director for programs of the Institute for Liturgical Ministry in Dayton, Ohio and contributor to Living Liturgy: Spirituality, Celebration, and Catechesis for Sundays and Solemnities, an annual resource published by Liturgical Press. She is also a columnist for Liturgical Ministry and serves as director of music for St. Paul Parish in Englewood, Ohio.

Christian Sacred Music in the Americas explores the richness of Christian musical traditions and reflects the distinctive critical perspectives of the Society for Christian Scholarship in Music. This volume, edited by Andrew Shenton and Joanna Smolko, is a follow-up to SCSM’s Exploring Christian Song and offers a cross-section of the most current and outstanding scholarship from an international array of writers. The essays survey a broad geographical area and demonstrate the enormous diversity of music-making and scholarship within that area. Contributors utilize interdisciplinary methodologies including media studies, cultural studies, theological studies, and different analytical and ethnographical approaches to music. While there are some studies that focus on a single country, musical figure, or region, this is the first collection to represent the vast range of sacred music in the Americas and the different approaches to studying them in context.
