When the fishing vessel La Conte sinks suddenly at night in one-hundred-mile-per-hour winds and record ninety-foot seas during a savage storm in January 1998, her five crewmen are left to drift without a life raft in the freezing Alaskan waters and survive as best they can. One hundred fifty miles away, in Sitka, Alaska, an H-60 Jayhawk helicopter lifts off from America's most remote Coast Guard base in the hopes of tracking down an anonymous Mayday signal. A fisherman's worst nightmare has become a Coast Guard crew's desperate mission. As the crew of the La Conte begin to die one by one, those sworn to watch over them risk everything to pull off the rescue of the century. Spike Walker's memoir of his years as a deckhand in Alaska, Working on the Edge, was hailed by James A. Michner as "masterful . . . will become the definitive account of this perilous trade, an addition to the literature of the sea." In Coming Back Alive, Walker has crafted his most devastating book to date. Meticulously researched through hundreds of hours of taped interviews with the survivors, this is the true account of the La Conte's final voyage and the relationship between Alaskan fishermen and the search and rescue crews who risk their lives to save them.

The age-old belief in reincarnation is enjoying a revival. More and more people are asking 'is this all there is?' and opening themselves up to the possibility of returning to life in new bodies to continue their spiritual growth. Reincarnation is not exclusive to the Hindu or Buddhist religions, it is part of the history of mankind. The Dalai Lama has written of this book that "it will contribute substantially to explain and interest the average westerner in the subject of rebirth." In 'Coming Back Alive' Joe Fisher explores the origins of belief in rebirth and examines the evidence for life after life while placing ideas of human reincarnation in the context of the life of the universe. Joe Fisher began to research past and future lives in 1982, the more deeply he delved the more he was swayed by the large body of evidence that supports the case for reincarnation. He first published his findings in 'The Case for Reincarnation' but has now revised and updated his work under the title 'Coming Back Alive'. Including new material on the discarnate realm between incarnations, new developments in past-life therapy and childhood reincarnation memory of earlier lives and describing the continued progress made in reincarnation research since the original publication this is the most comprehensive account available.

It was a story Jesus liked to tell. If a man owned a hundred sheep and one of them wandered away, he would, without hesitation, leave the ninety-nine and search for the one. And when he found that lost sheep he would celebrate with great joy. In the same way, Jesus concluded, our Father in heaven–like the shepherd–is unwilling for any of his sheep to be lost. Yet all too often God’s sheep do wander from the flock. Sometimes, for reasons that are hard to discern, they stray on their own. Other times they’re driven away, perhaps wounded by an unkind word or thoughtless deed. In Bring ’Em Back Alive author Dave Burchett shows us the importance of bringing these lost and wounded lambs back to the fold–or, when we’re the ones who wandered, becoming willing to return. He explains, step-by-step, how to replenish the spiritual strength of Christ’s body. And he reminds us that we, like the shepherd, can know the joy that comes when a lost sheep returns home. Every believer is a precious part of Christ’s body. When even one is missing, the church lacks power and is less than whole. Whether we’re victims, perpetrators, or innocent bystanders we’re called by God to seek restoration. And when one of God’s sheep goes missing we have no choice: We must Bring ’Em Back Alive. Includes questions at the end of each chapter for discussion and reflection.
