The instant Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and international bestseller “While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their image with sheer, almost irrational force, I’ve found that history is also made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who eschewed the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition.” —from the prologue Many of us insist the main impediment to a full, successful life is the outside world. In fact, the most common enemy lies within: our ego. Early in our careers, it impedes learning and the cultivation of talent. With success, it can blind us to our faults and sow future problems. In failure, it magnifies each blow and makes recovery more difficult. At every stage, ego holds us back. Ego Is the Enemy draws on a vast array of stories and examples, from literature to philosophy to his­tory. We meet fascinating figures such as George Marshall, Jackie Robinson, Katharine Graham, Bill Belichick, and Eleanor Roosevelt, who all reached the highest levels of power and success by con­quering their own egos. Their strategies and tactics can be ours as well. In an era that glorifies social media, reality TV, and other forms of shameless self-promotion, the battle against ego must be fought on many fronts. Armed with the lessons in this book, as Holiday writes, “you will be less invested in the story you tell about your own specialness, and as a result, you will be liberated to accomplish the world-changing work you’ve set out to achieve.” From the Hardcover edition.

A SENIOR PASTOR TALKS YOUTH MINISTRY

Ever wish your ministry hindsight could be your foresight? Sometimes you don’t know what’s about to happen next—or how to prepare for it. Other times you can almost glimpse the lessons you’re about to learn the hard way before they happen, like you’re peering through the tiny panels of a fence. You can barely make out what you see, but you know something important lives on the other side. What if someone was on that side of the fence? What if it was a senior pastor who truly understands what you face as a youth worker—and who not only understands, but wants to offer wisdom to help you in your journey? Tony Myles speaks from a unique perspective: a former youth pastor who remains deeply engaged in his church’s ministry to teenagers. He still has skin in the game as a lead pastor, volunteer youth worker, and dad of a youth group kid. He regularly interacts with students and sometimes even gives up preaching on the weekend so he can teach youth. Instead of recycling what’s common, this book reclaims things that are uncommon—thought-provoking questions, risky challenges, and uncomfortable ideas about personal character, church life, and youth ministry. And you’ll process all of this through the life of Nehemiah—with extra insights from youth workers who are on the same path you’re traveling. Uncommon Wisdom From the Other Side will give you the chance to change the typical youth ministry conversation happening at large and in your church—all with the goal of remaining glued to Jesus and reaching a generation of young people.

Freedom from 'Christian slavery' Radical grace, radical love, radical life Mike Massé loved God and lived to reach the lost. He was admired for his commitment to the gospel and his passion for ministry. But for many years he harbored a private sense of unworthiness and inadequacy, striving to be “good enough”—until a grace conversion liberated him from the chains of expectation and requirement. Only as he came to recognize his true position in Christ did he find the power to love God and others as he desired—from the safe place of total acceptance. Challenging conventional wisdom, traditional thinking, and religious attitudes as he shares his experiences, Massé explains how you can find the same freedom to be who God has always said you are. With honesty, humor, and heart-felt conviction, he celebrates the liberty to be found in the radical truth between legalism and license.

Shortlisted for the Green Carnation Prize 2014 Laurie Penny, one of our most prominent young voices of feminism and dissent, presents a trenchant report on our society today--and our society tomorrow, as she is willing to fight to see it. Smart, clear-eyed, and irreverent, Unspeakable Things is a fresh look at gender and power in the twenty-first century, which asks difficult questions about dissent and desire, money and masculinity, sexual violence, menial work, mental health, queer politics, and the Internet. Celebrated journalist and activist Laurie Penny draws on a broad history of feminist thought and her own experience in radical subcultures in America and Britain to take on cultural phenomena from the Occupy movement to online dating, give her unique spin on economic justice and freedom of speech, and provide candid personal insight to rally the defensive against eating disorders, sexual assault, and internet trolls. Unspeakable Things is a book that is eye-opening not only in the critique it provides, but also in the revolutionary alternatives it imagines.

This book will open your eyes, your heart, and your Spirit as you journey through each letter written to the Church. It is very much like the previous book, “Jesus is Coming-Soon, Are You Rapture Ready?” -- which was penned in the same manner as the letters written to the Church, by the Apostle Paul. The Pauline Letters, “Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 & 2 Thessalonians, 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus, and Philemon,” were written under the guise of the Holy Spirit. Each letter, in “Jesus is Coming Soon: Book II, Are You Walking In Wisdom?” as well as the previous book, “Jesus is Coming-Soon, Are You Rapture Ready?” are both written under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit for today’s Church. This book contains thirty one letters. It addresses distinct circumstances of the End Time Church. It can be read in succession or by a selection of the topic that interest you most. Each letter stands alone and is not to be considered a prerequisite of another. This book is meant to revive you and launch you into the newness of life. It will prick your conscience and cause you to check your walk with Christ.

Grief Labyrinth is the journey I began with my daughter Inga's breast cancer diagnosis and her death at the age of thirty. I felt so heartbroken I did not think I would survive. In time, I discovered and walked the labyrinth, a profound metaphor for the grief process. The only way through is forward, with many twisting turns and going back and forth over what seems like the same territory. Walking the labyrinth path with my grief repeatedly, I ultimately discovered healing, trust, hope and joy. A transforming path "With the wisdom that comes only from personal experience, Carole offers to others a transforming path through grief. Her deep sharing highlights the benefit of turning towards one's grief. What she refers to as "The 4 R's"-reviewing, releasing receiving and returning are specific reflections that lead toward healing and integration. I recommend this book to anyone who has lost a loved one." -Ange Stephens, MA LMFT, Psychotherapist specialist in grief "This honest, heartfelt, and encouraging book offers the labyrinth as a comfort for the journey of grief." -Marcia Lattanzi-Licht, author of The Hospice Choice "This book is a moving testimony of a mother's path through grief. A path that takes us from fragmentation to wholeness. It reminds us that in the intense grief surrounding the loss of someone we love we rediscover the pool of grief that we have always carried. The ordinary, everyday grief that inhabits all our lives." -Frank Ostaseski, founder Metta Institute
