Summary

The author of The Haunted Boonslick proves the Show Me State isn’t shy about its ghostly heritage—especially in the beautiful college town at its center.   According to Columbia ghost lore, the city’s dead only dabble with departure. The specter of Broadway legend Maude Adams checks in on classes at Stephens College, while ragtime pioneer John William Boone returns to trail invisible fingers along his grand piano. Some linger from love, like the spirit of the Osage woman who waited for a final walk with the brave she was to marry. Others remain for a reckoning, like the guerrilla stalking Brannock Hall for the Union sniper who shot him down or the murdered child discovered in the plaster of a frontier tavern. From the columns of Mizzou’s quad to the region’s winding country roads, author Mary Collins Barile explores the restless graves of Columbia’s eerie heritage.   Includes photos!
Available since: 09/05/2016.

  • Distinctively Christian Retirement - A Biblical call to serve Jesus well in older age - cover

    Most of us simply assume that we have a right to retire from work and spend the rest of our lives doing whatever we want. While the idea of a long holiday sounds wonderful, this ideal picture is not the whole truth. Retirement often brings relationship challenges, health problems, and crises of purpose and motivation; it is not the paradise we have been promised.God’s word never encourages us to take an extended holiday towards the end of our lives; retirement is not a Biblical idea. The Bible is, however, very helpful for us as we prepare for our later years. God speaks to us through his Word about important issues like purpose, death and identity that make sense of the struggles many retirees face.Older Christians should live in a very different way to those who don’t trust Jesus. The Bible is full of teaching about age and maturity, while also furnishing us with a range of helpful and unhelpful examples of older believers who have gone before us. God’s word also helps us think rightly about health limitations, nostalgia, and money, issues all retirees will face.Christian retirees should be a great resource for the local church and a blessing to the communities that they live in. There are all kinds of opportunities for mentoring, encouragement, leadership, and evangelism. This book aims to give Christians a Biblical vision for how our later years might be used to serve Jesus.

    A practical guide to cultivating compassion in those difficult moments of daily life: “Inspiring for all of us, therapists and patients alike.” —Mark Epstein, MD, author of Thoughts Without a Thinker 
     
    Compassion is often seen as a distant, altruistic ideal cultivated by saints, or as an unrealistic response of the naively kind-hearted. Seeing compassion in this way, we lose out on experiencing the transformative potential of one of our most neglected inner resources. 
     
    Dr. Lorne Ladner rescues compassion from this marginalized, idealized place, showing how its practical application in our life can be a powerful force in achieving happiness. Combining the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism and Western psychology, Ladner presents clear, effective practices for cultivating compassion in daily living. 
     
    “[A] realistic, manageable approach to dispelling bitterness and anger and replacing it with empathy and patience.” —Publishers Weekly 
     
    “You’ve probably noticed you can’t make yourself happy. Exercising compassion will not only get you through many a traffic jam . . . it will begin building an unshakeable happiness . . . a wonderful book.” —Annie Dillard, author of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

    Play is deeply embedded in our natures. It contributes to optimism and hope for the future. It enables us with the ability to persevere. Brown concludes, “Play is a fundamental survival drive of humanity without which long term survival of our species may be at stake.” He describes research showing that most sociopaths suffer from play deprivation in their childhood.
