Summary

After many years of writing her own words in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to be more attentive to the Savior's voice and begin listening for what He was saying. So, with pen in hand, she embarked on a journey that forever changed her—and many others around the world. In Jesus Always, Sarah recounts the words and Scriptures that Jesus has laid on her heart to help her growth in faith and lead a joy-filled existence. She relates how leading a quiet life since writing Jesus Calling has helped her find little treasures that brighten her day—treasures she now shares with readers in the pages of her book. 
In Embracing Jesus' Love, participants will be guided through eight sessions of study that explore what the Bible has to say about the way God views them as a precious treasure, how He restores them gives them a new identity, and how they should in turn respond to God's generous offer of grace and love. They will discover, as Paul wrote, "[God] saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy… so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life" (Titus 3:5,7). 
Each eight-session study includes readings from Jesus Always, selected Scripture and study questions, and daily reflection questions, and is designed for use in personal, small group, or classroom settings.

    Globally recognized as an ecumenical teacher, Richard Rohr started out—and remains—a Franciscan friar. The loving, inclusive life and preaching of Francis of Assisi make him a recognizable and beloved saint across many faith traditions. He was, as Rohr notes, “a master of ‘making room for it’ and letting go of that which was tired or empty.”   Francis found an “alternative way” to follow Jesus, one that disregarded power and privilege and held fast to the narrow path of the Gospel. Rohr helps us look beyond the birdbath image of the saint to remind us of the long tradition founded on his revolutionary, radical, and life-changing embrace of the teachings of Jesus.

    This award-winning novel of love, survival, and agonizing regret in post–WWII Brooklyn “belongs on that small shelf reserved for American masterpieces” (The Washington Post Book World).  Winner of the National Book Award and a modern classic, Sophie’s Choice centers on three characters: Stingo, a sexually frustrated aspiring novelist; Nathan, his charismatic but violent Jewish neighbor; and Sophie, an Auschwitz survivor who is Nathan’s lover. Their entanglement in one another’s lives will build to a stirring revelation of agonizing secrets that will change them forever.   Poetic in its execution, and epic in its emotional sweep, Sophie’s Choice explores the good and evil of humanity through Stingo’s burgeoning worldliness, Nathan’s volatile personality, and Sophie’s tragic past. Mixing elements from Styron’s own experience with themes of the Holocaust and the history of slavery in the American South, the novel is a profound and haunting human drama, representing Styron at the pinnacle of his literary brilliance.  This ebook features an illustrated biography of William Styron, including original letters, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the Styron family and the Duke University Archives.
