“The discourse of our common life inclines towards despair. In my field of journalism, where we presume to write the first draft of history, we summon our deepest critical capacities for investigating what is inadequate, corrupt, catastrophic, and failing. The ‘news’ is defined as the extraordinary events of the day, but it is most often translated as the extraordinarily terrible events of the day. And in an immersive 24/7 news cycle, we internalize the deluge of bad news as the norm—the real truth of who we are and what we’re up against as a species. But my work has shown me that spiritual geniuses of the everyday are everywhere. They are in the margins and do not have publicists. They are below the radar, which is broken.” Peabody Award-winning broadcaster and National Humanities Medalist Krista Tippett has interviewed the most extraordinary voices examining the great questions of meaning for our time. The heart of her work on her national public radio program and podcast, On Being, has been to shine a light on people whose insights kindle in us a sense of wonder and courage. Scientists in a variety of fields; theologians from an array of faiths; poets, activists, and many others have all opened themselves up to Tippett's compassionate yet searching conversation. In Becoming Wise, Tippett distills the insights she has gleaned from this luminous conversation in its many dimensions into a coherent narrative journey, over time and from mind to mind. The book is a master class in living, curated by Tippett and accompanied by a delightfully ecumenical dream team of teaching faculty. The open questions and challenges of our time are intimate and civilizational all at once, Tippett says – definitions of when life begins and when death happens, of the meaning of community and family and identity, of our relationships to technology and through technology. The wisdom we seek emerges through the raw materials of the everyday. And the enduring question of what it means to be human has now become inextricable from the question of who we are to each other. This book offers a grounded and fiercely hopeful vision of humanity for this century – of personal growth but also renewed public life and human spiritual evolution. It insists on the possibility of a common life for this century marked by resilience and redemption, with beauty as a core moral value and civility and love as muscular practice. Krista Tippett's great gift, in her work and in Becoming Wise, is to avoid reductive simplifications but still find the golden threads that weave people and ideas together into a shimmering braid. One powerful common denominator of the lessons imparted to Tippett is the gift of presence, of the exhilaration of engagement with life for its own sake, not as a means to an end. But presence does not mean passivity or acceptance of the status quo. Indeed Tippett and her teachers are people whose work meets, and often drives, powerful forces of change alive in the world today. In the end, perhaps the greatest blessing conveyed by the lessons of spiritual genius Tippett harvests in Becoming Wise is the strength to meet the world where it really is, and then to make it better.

"I’m not sure there’s such a thing as the cultural 'center,' nor that it’s very interesting if it exists. But left of center and right of center, in the expansive middle and heart of our life together, most of us have some questions left alongside our answers, some curiosity alongside our convictions. This book is for people who want to take up the great questions of our time with imagination and courage, to nurture new realities in the spaces we inhabit, and to do so expectantly and with joy." In Becoming Wise, Krista Tippett has created a master class in living for a fractured world. Fracture, she says, is not the whole story of our time. The enduring question of what it means to be human has become inextricable from the challenge of who we are to one another. She insists on the possibility of personal depth and common life for this century, nurtured by science and “spiritual technologies,” with civility and love as muscular public practice. And, accompanied by a cross-disciplinary dream team of a teaching faculty, she shows us how. “Krista Tippett [is] a modern-day Simone Weil. . . . Becoming Wise is a tremendously vitalizing read in its totality—a wellspring of nuance and dimension amid our Flatland of artificial polarities, touching on every significant aspect of human life with great gentleness and a firm grasp of human goodness.” —Maria Popova, Brain Pickings

In this long awaited follow-on volume to his Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent book, The Shape of Living, the renowned theologian David Ford explores how we can live wisely – not poring earnestly over difficult choices, but in the presence of Holy Wisdom - ‘God’s darling and delight, playing in his presence and over the whole world’. Such wisdom fires our hearts and imaginations, as well as our intellects, and enables us to live fully open to God, to others, and to life’s complexities, in freedom and joy. Playfulness is something many of us leave behind in youth, yet it is a primary characteristic of the kingdom of God – the joy of play pervades creation and should pervade our lives. Drawing on scripture and the poetry of Micheal O’Siadhail, David Ford enable us to recover a lost dimension in our Christian living.

Wahre innere Stärke erwächst nicht aus Siegen, sondern aus Niederlagen: Gerade zu straucheln und hinzufallen, birgt die Chance für inneres Wachstum und weist uns den Weg zu Weisheit, Hoffnung und einem tieferen Lebenssinn. Die US-amerikanische Starpsychologin Brené Brown erforscht seit vielen Jahren die Gesetzmäßigkeiten innerer Stärke. Anschaulich und anhand vieler Beispiele beschreibt sie den Entwicklungsprozess, der uns in Krisenzeiten positiv formt: Wir lernen, mit Scham umzugehen. Uns trotz widriger Umstände als wertvoll zu empfinden. Gehen das Wagnis ein, uns in unserer Verletzlichkeit zu zeigen. Entwickeln den Mut, uns über die eigenen Grenzen hinauszuwagen und unser Leben aktiv zu gestalten – und sind schließlich stärker als je zuvor.

«Ich glaube, es ist so: Am Anfang tut man alles, um ein Star zu werden, und den Rest seiner Karriere verbringt man damit, als Star zu überleben.» Wie er zum Star wurde, beschrieb Robbie Williams 2004 in seiner Autobiographie «Feel», einem weltweiten Bestseller. In seinem neuen Buch schildert er, was danach passierte. Wie er gegen Depressionen und Alkoholismus kämpfte, sich aus dem Popgeschäft zurückzog, UFOs beobachtete und die Einsamkeit suchte, wie er Ehemann und zweifacher Vater wurde und nun, nach der Versöhnung mit seinem musikalischen Partner Guy Chambers, mit seinem elften Album «The Heavy Entertainment Show» wieder in die Öffentlichkeit zurückkehrt. Auch sein neues Buch entstand in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Musikjournalisten Chris Heath, der Williams in den vergangenen Jahren intensiv begleitete, ihn beim Komponieren und im Umgang mit seinen Kindern beobachtete. Daraus entstand ein intimer, unzensierter Bericht über den Robbie Williams der vergangenen zehn Jahre; eine Reportage über den Popstar und Privatmann und darüber, was es heißt, als Star zu überleben. Denn Robbie ist zurück – Vorhang auf! «Es ist das Tagebuch eines modernen Entertainers und seiner unsteten Gedankenwelt, die Geschichte eines Popstars, der versucht, sich selbst wiederzufinden, nachdem er aus dem Vorruhestand zurückgekehrt ist. Es ist wahr, lustig, manchmal traurig, gut geschrieben und sehr unterhaltsam. Ich hoffe, dass die Menschen Spaß daran haben.» Robbie

WiseMoney - take control of your finances and create your future is based on the seminars that Phil Strong has been delivering to audiences throughout NZ since 2004, when he realised that financial literacy is at the root of most family challenges, and that our young adults are growing up, earning money and yet have no idea how to get ahead of the financial treadmill they find themselves on of money in-money out and nothing left over. While there are other great books on finance, investment and on how and why most people either don't make it or they explore the reasons why some people are successful - Phil believes there are fundamental issues not being addressed as to how the basics need to be dealt with before moving ahead to better understanding where to put your money when you have some spare. This book is all about taking control of your money and financial habits, getting clear of debt in order to have a great lifestyle. Aimed mainly at under 30 year olds, who may have student debt, are settling into careers and starting families, this book is exceptionally useful for anyone of any age who has never mastered their credit card, mortgage or ability to save and pay cash for things they want.

Life can be hard, cold, and painful. Or it can be pleasant, warm, and rewarding. The consequences of the choices we make in life determine which way it will be. We can’t control many of life’s events, but we can control how we deal with them. Our responsibility is to build a successful life in a world of confusion, pain, and disorientation. In Choices: Responsible Decisions for a Godly Life, author Dr. Robert F. Kirk explains that each of us is responsible for the outcome of our life. The individual choices we make in life determine what we will become. Kirk discusses the natural and spiritual choices that determine our success or failure, and he recommends the Book of Proverbs as a guide for Godly wisdom to assist us in those decisions. The Book of Proverbs, a powerful book that provides instruction and guidance, instructs us to partner with God in our choices using His wisdom. We don’t have to travel the road of life alone. However, we must make our own choices and we need to choose wisely to be successful. Choices: Responsible Decisions for a Godly Life will help you make a plan for wise decisions in your life.

The text is a conversation between the author and himself mediated by the text of Friedrich Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra. The text is a pre-text, a reading both before and after that frames the art work. What is that? Let us say, in the spirit of inquiry, that of knowing thyself. What, then, of this strange hyphenation? The present text is a pre-text because it is before the Text, the text which the author is always writing but which manifests itself, in sporadic, impulsive bursts, in the form of actual works. The book is the pre-text because it is an excuse, a rationale, a piece of pretension. The book is not about Nietzsche but what it is for someone to read Nietzsche’s text, a book for everyone and no one. How then does one read a book meant for oneself, if oneself is everyone, and not at all for oneself, if oneself is none? Or is it that the real task of reading is for the reader to read what reading is? Then again, need one distinguish between book and text? Perhaps, it is impossible to read a book such as Thus Spoke Zarathustra without invoking the text --or even sub-text – that continually slips away. If one can read a book, one cannot the text for this reason: the text is what the reader has to write through the reading. This has been my experience with Nietzsche’s text, an experience I share with my readers. The very possibility of reading invokes the need to re-write the text. Only in the space between reading and writing can the reader/re-writer hope to stand and understand the discursive grounds. Is that the play which this couplet performs? There, does not the reader enters upon the playground. Read then and play! The author's thanks go to Mr. Andrew Fuyarchuk for the fine editing job that he did. His contribution allowed further clarifications of the argument.
