Maps are magical. Every graphic, like every story, has a point of view, and New York is rife with mapmaking possibilities, thick with mythology, and glutted with history. You Are Here: NYC assembles some two hundred maps charting every inch and facet of the five boroughs, depicting New Yorks of past and present, and a city that never was. "A Nightclub Map of Harlem" traces a boozy night from the Radium and the Cotton Club to the Savoy and then the Lafayette; "Wonders of New York" pinpoints three hundred sites of interest, including the alleged location of Captain Kidd's buried treasure; the Ghostbusters subway map plots the route from Astral Projections Place to Stay Puft Street; and a rejected proposal of ornate topiaries illustrates a Central Park that might have been. This sequel to the best-selling You Are Here includes original essays by Bob Mankoff, Maria Popova, Sarah Boxer, and Rebecca Cooper, among others.

What if we changed the face of evangelism? In a time when so many have a negative perception of evangelism, what if a new model was entirely biblical, loaded with skills, and more effective? Soul Whisperer shifts the emphasis from telling to a drawing paradigm. It develops biblically the pattern of Jesus, who did not give static presentations but rather customized his words to each hearer. By learning his ways, our words, too, can have pinpointed impact! Christians will discover how to draw out first, in order to read their friends and discern the relevant appeal of the gospel. In this way, the style is far more dynamic. It adapts! Understanding the non-believer's unique starting point will determine a distinct path. By creating a conversation about spiritual influence and what is involved in faith formation, this book charts ways for Christians to go deeper in evangelistic relationships. Most importantly, Soul Whisperer infuses skills that will shape a more Christ-likened missional disciple.

Cristina Necula's poetry is an arpeggio of hidden harmonies vibrating at the finest touch. The personages traveling through the poet's life are instruments of self-knowledge; the means for the poet to rediscover deep echoes within her own psyche, for it is her emotional and psychological journey that takes center stage. Her poetry is full of substance and flavor, it surprises and enchants; it allows the reader's imagination to walk hand-in-hand with the poet's emotional states. The poems are full of the agony of illusion, which the poet considers at times beneficial - a surrogate for happiness - and in other instances, a treacherous guide which leads to self-deception. It is a paradox she uselessly tries to evade and destroy forever, but which continues to seduce her. Cristina Necula's poems are after all about the paradox of love in all its lure and mysterious grace. Sever Voinescu, writer
