Neftali ist 8 und lebt mit seiner Familie in Temuco, einer kleinen Stadt im Süden Chiles. Sein Vater ist streng und wünscht sich, dass er etwas „Vernünftiges“ lernt. Aber Neftalis Leidenschaft ist das Lesen und das Sammeln - Blätter, Steine, Vogelnester, Tannenzapfen, Muscheln. Und immer gibt es dazu Geschichten, die sich Neftali ausdenkt, und Wörter, die er auf Zettel schreibt und in seine Schublade steckt. Seine Schätze. Endlich kommt der Sommer, an dem sie ans Meer fahren, an den Pazifik, der rauh ist und kalt, aber so unendlich weit und wunderschön. Und all sein Hoffen ist, das der Vater vielleicht am Meer nicht so streng ist wie sonst. Am Ende dieses einfühlsamen und warmherzigen Romans, Neftali ist inzwischen 15, müssen wir lernen, dass irgendwann jeder seinen Weg gehen muss, so schwer er auch ist und so schmerzlich Abschiede sind. Neftali geht zum Studium nach Santiago, und aus dem Jungen aus dem Süden wird der berühmte Schriftsteller Pablo Neruda. Peter Sis, den wir aus der „Konferenz der Vögel“ kennen, hat das Buch durchillustriert und gestaltet und es auch optisch zu einem Kunstwerk gemacht.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. But it's no secret that the Christian church is broke, and does need fixing. Despite great effort, things are going badly for us. We've tried trendy and tech-savvy, entrepreneurial and coffee-house gritty. They're not helping. Our problem is deeper than that. Our problem is our instincts--instincts informed by our story. There was a time when the Christian church was a powerfully transformative presence in society. It can be again--but it will require radical rethinking of the story that informs our instincts. And it's time! It's been five hundred years since the Reformation, our last major update. Today is a pivotal moment in history. With our worldview upended by quantum physics, history is demanding we renew the Christian story for our times. Rethinking Our Story reframes the elements of the Christian narrative for the new era. It explores quantum ways of thinking about God, human nature, Jesus, salvation, and the afterlife. The future of the church and the health of our society depend on our willingness to rethink, retell, and live out a better story. We will either update our instincts and contribute to the earth's well-being--or disappear into oblivion.

The NLT Study Series is based on the NLT Study Bible. Each of the 13-week studies provide an in-depth study of a particular Bible book. The entire text of that book from the NLT Study Bible is included. The study provides participants with five scripture readings per week and daily questions to prompt the participant to enter the world of the Bible and reflect on what God is saying. A unique small group format facilitates full participation. The NLT Study Series explores the textual, linguistic, literary, and cultural aspects of the scriptures and those to whom it was written. It is appropriate for serious Bible study, and it teaches individuals to work at understanding Scripture.

God is already at work in your life--whether or not you recognize it. Most people are too busy to see or hear God and most Christians lack the intentional practice of listening to the stories of outsiders. In Echoing the Story, Brady Bryce provides a simple way for people to come together and tell the scattered stories of their lives in order to imagine them as part of a bigger story. His innovative, narrative approach invites curious skeptics, casual followers of God, and committed disciples of Jesus into community through listening to shared stories. If you are interested in exploring the entire story of the Bible, if you wonder how its stories fit together, or if you simply want to experience God in the ordinariness of your life, then this reliable guide can lead you in listening to the echoes of God. Part spiritual formation, part discipleship, part journey through the Bible--this guidebook is an experience in hearing the word of God in life. You can learn the skill of echoing the story through listening in this informative, experiential, and missional process. As participants in the story we can begin to imagine our everyday lives as stories oriented toward God.

This text presents a novel approach to teaching and learning the fundamental skills and techniques of counseling and psychotherapy, based on a "non-linear" process of thinking that more accurately reflects the reality of mental health practice. At the core of this text lies the idea that to best prepare students for practice with real clients, they have to learn how to think in a new way, the way that research has shown the most effective practitioners think. The result is a paradigm shift in how to teach and learn basic counseling skills, which separates this text from the competition and brings training up to speed with current practice.
