When her teenage son’s escalating self-sabotage jeopardized the fragile balance in author Eleanor MacLellan’s blended family, she and her husband enrolled him in an alternative high school that required the parents to complete a senior project before their son could graduate. She chose to make a large canvas labyrinth for her church and community with the help of five friends. As the women worked on the physical labyrinth project, they explored the twisting paths of their life stories, which traversed the loss of a fourteen-year-old child, a serious teenage auto accident, a family coffin-building tradition, the return of an adult child given up for adoption at birth, a cancer diagnosis, and friendships forged in poverty. MacLellan discovered that her real senior project was not just to create a labyrinth, but rather to reclaim a strong family and to find a deeper, creative faith for the journey ahead.

The purpose of my autobiography is to give my heart-felt thanks to the Lord for what He has done for me for the past 60 years beginning from 1950 when I became a Christian during the war of Pohang in the boundary of life and death to 2010 when I officially closed the Lord's ministry as pastor of International Bible Church in Los Angeles. The desire of writing this book is totally on my own, for neither did the Lord ever ask me to write this book, nor did He ever need this book to be written. When a person receives God's amazing grace, loving mercy and abiding peace, in him is welling up a spring of water of thanksgiving from his inner heart without ceasing until he shares its amazing grace and loving mercy and abiding peace with others. This is just what I have done in this book. I am giving the Lord my heart-felt thanksgiving for the 20 miracles that have happened to me for the past 60 years without which I wouldn't be here today. To God be the glory and honor forever, Amen! Mark E. Oh, PhD, DMin, is a graduate of Keimyung University (Korea), San Francisco Theological Seminary, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, Western Seminary, California Graduate School of Theology, and Fuller Theological Seminary. Married to the former Rosemary McGuire in 1965. They have two sons and four grand children; is the Founder & Pastor of International Bible Church in Los Angeles (1972-2010) for more than 38 years. Served as First President of Christ Bible College, 2002-2009. Retired from active ministry in 2009. Serves as pastor emeritus since 2010.

Many Christians live in the misery of bitterness, unforgiveness, and trauma caused by spouses, parents, grandparents, or others who have sinned against them. Although the pain can seem unending, there is hope for those who seek healing grace to cover the sins of those who have wronged them. Dr. H. Norman Wright and marriage and family therapist Larry Renetzky give readers specific practical steps to release God's grace to forgive and to lay the foundation for building bridges of reconciliation. Some who read Healing Grace for Hurting People will relate to the stories of those needing healing grace, such as overachieving Mark who could not give his family love and intimacy, which he never received while growing up. Find out what happened to Mark and his family when Mark learned about the secret of the universe. God's grace saves us and sustains us. And He expects us to pass it on in our relationships. Learn how God's reconciling grace and power can resolve conflicts, revitalize marriages heading for divorce, and restore broken relationships in families, extended families, and the broader community.

This is a penetrating critique of our criminal justice and penal systems from the unique, firsthand experiences of its priest-prisoner author. His conclusion is that they are “sick, broken, rudderless systems that neither correct nor rehabilitate offenders, nor help or heal victims.” A compelling case is made—from practical, biblical and humane arguments—for moving from retributive-punishment models of seeking justice to restorative-rehabilitative ones. Restorative justice actively involves victims, offenders and the community in a joint process of working toward healing, restitution, rehabilitation and reconciliation. Incarceration becomes only one option, rather than the foregone conclusion. Specific proposals are made for reforming the justice, prison and parole systems. Examples of working models are presented. Evaluation tools and discussion guides are provided. Christians will find rich meditative material and spiritual challenges, as the author plumbs the scriptures and Catholic social justice teachings for personal moral answers and principled civic policies. One chapter offers examples of what individuals, parishes and dioceses can and are doing to promote restorative justice. A cross-reference is included to the November 2000 document on criminal justice by the U.S. Catholic bishops. Topics covered include: the relationship of poverty, race, mental illness and drug addiction to incarceration; capital punishment; the consequences of three-strikes and minimum-mandatory sentencing; the effects of politics on policy; inadequate legal representation for the poor.

When disaster struck at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, Dennis Smith was among the first to arrive on the scene. Report from Ground Zero is his insider's account of the heroic efforts of the firefighters, police and emergency workers who rushed to downtown New York to face the greatest challenge of their lives. In all, 343 firefighters gave their lives. Entire companies were lost. Among the dead were a father and son; the department's beloved chaplain; commanders and rookies. Smith, author of the classic bestseller Report from Engine Company 82 and once described as 'the Poet Laureate of firefighters' by the New York Post, tells their stories and those of their families, the camaraderie in their companies and the massive recovery efforts following the catastrophe. As the world tries to come to terms with the horror of what happened, the firefighters' courage and fortitude in the face of enormous personal danger and bereavement offers a beacon of hope and redemption. Report from Ground Zero is a tribute to those heroes for our troubled times.
