Sharing Wisdom, Building Values:Letters from Family Business Owners to Their Successors. Auflage 2011 D. Kenyon-Rouvinez, G. Adler, G. Corbetta, Gianfilippo Cuneo
The church spends $1.5 million for every one new follower of Jesus. Apple sells 26 iPads every minute. What is it that makes Apple so exciting and Jesus so boring? What is it that compels someone to bring their iPod everywhere and their Bible nowhere? In a word: marketing. Jesus is a life-changing product with lousy salespeople - people who are intimidated and embarrassed by the word ´´evangelism´´ and who show more enthusiasm for their gadgets than their God. What would life look like if we could market our faith like Nike and Apple market their products - sharing relationally, from person to person? Using examples from these and other successful companies, author Tim Sinclair challenges Christians to throw out their casual attitudes toward faith and sign on for a marketing campaign for the Savior. Written with the wit and wisdom of an experienced marketer, Branded peels away the feelings of fear and explains how to share faith in ways that are honest, authentic, and, most importantly, effective. 1.

Remember the Wisdom that Progress Forgot:Sharing the Gems of our Ancestors Suresha Hill, B. S. M. S. , Ed. S. Suresha Hill
On the heels of the best-selling success of The Ultimate Gift and the major motion picture from 20th Century Fox based on that book, Jim Stovall brings you The Millionaire Map. This is the book I wished was available 30 years ago when I was desperate and broke with only a dream of one day being a millionaire. Now, as a multimillionaire, I want to share the wisdom I´ve gained from the journey and provide other travelers with a map to guide them on their journey.´´ (Jim Stovall) The Millionaire Map reveals... You can´t expand your wallet until you expand your mind. Becoming a millionaire is not just about all the things you want to have, but it´s about the things you want to do and give. In order to climb to the financial peak, you´ve got to crawl out of the valley of debt. You will either voluntarily control your money now, or it will force its control on you later. The vast majority of people never arrive at their destination - not because they don´t have what it takes but because they don´t manage what they have. Jim Stovall has enjoyed success as an author, athlete, investment broker, and entrepreneur while dealing with the challenge of blindness. During his remarkable life, Jim has been a national champion Olympic weightlifter, as well as the author of 20 books. In addition to his personal achievements, Jim was honored as the 2000 International Humanitarian of the Year, joining Jimmy Carter, Nancy Reagan, and Mother Teresa as a recipient of this prestigious award. As cofounder and president of the Emmy Award-winning Narrative Television Network (NTN), Jim has also helped make movies and television accessible for America´s 13 million blind and visually impaired people and their families. 1.

Autism shakes up your world. It has changed my life and I wasn´t even the one diagnosed with it. My brother´s name is Ethan Wolfgang, but we call him Deets. He is one of the greatest gifts my family has ever received. And one of the most challenging. So begins Zack Peter´s memoir of his family´s struggle to cope with his brother´s autism. And thus began Peter´s mission to ensure that his brother will one day live an independent life. He candidly describes his attempts to get his family on board with Ethan´s biomedical treatment and his fight against their reluctance. He relates how his life changes when he comes up with the idea of hosting a local fundraisers, which then throws him into the world of activism. He describes how this leads to his becoming a full-time advocate for autism. As everything in his life becomes more and more centered around the spectrum, Peter faces the personal struggle of being a voice for the cause while trying to maintain his own identity. Sharing the wisdom he´s learned in a voice that´s equal parts snark and heart, Peter offers a memoir that´s as funny as it is poignant, filled with no-nonsense advice and what he calls ´´The Hope Rules,´´ which are designed to help preserve sanity, dignity, and the will to stay strong. Whether you know someone with autism or not, Zack Peter´s refreshing take on his life as a sibling and activist serves as inspiration to persevere, even when the odds seem impossibly long. It´s everything you need to help keep your head up like the bottom of your glass. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Aaron Landon.

A rare glimpse into heaven, hell, and previous lives. Dr. Rajiv Parti´s near-death experience brought him on a journey through the afterworld, leading to a spiritual awakening that transformed his career, his lifestyle, and even his fundamental beliefs. Before his near-death experience, Dr. Rajiv Parti was a wealthy man of science with a successful career as the chief of anesthesiology at the Bakersfield Heart Hospital in California. He demanded the same success from his son, whose failures provoked episodes of physical abuse from Dr. Parti. All in all, Dr. Parti was the last man to believe in heaven or hell - that is, until he saw them with his own eyes. When Dr. Parti had his near-death experience on the operating table, he first watched his own operation from the ceiling - even recalling a joke told by his doctors during his surgery. He was greeted by archangels and his deceased father, who led him through the tortures of hell and revealed the toxic cycle of violence that has plagued his family for generations. He even reviewed the struggles of his previous lives, which in many ways reflected those he still faced in the present. Finally he experienced heaven. From the angels he learned lessons of spiritual health that they insisted he bring down to earth. To do so, Dr. Parti knew, he had to change his ways. After his near-death experience, Dr. Parti awoke a new man. He gave away his mansion, quit his career, opened a wellness clinic, and completely turned around his relationships with his family. To this day he still converses with angels and spreads their wisdom to the living. In this remarkable true story of spiritual transformation, Dr. Parti provides rare details of heaven, hell, the afterlife, and angels. In sharing the lessons and eternal truths from the divine that changed him forever, Dr. Parti offers his audience the opportunity to attain peace and live better lives here on earth. 1.

The Teachings of Meister Eckhart: An Invitation to Experience God in Every Moment The 13th-century mystic Meister Eckhart was the most brilliant Christian scholar of his day, but he was also legendary for the way he opened listeners to the direct experience of God during his public talks. Today, his written wisdom remains alive as ever, ready to illuminate us. With Meister Eckhart´s Living Wisdom, James Finley, one of today´s best-known teachers of the Christian contemplative tradition, invites us into Eckhart´s insights in the same way this luminary teacher delighted in sharing them - through the spoken word. ´´The eye with which I see God is the eye with which God sees me.´´ If the Divine dwells in all things, including ourselves, then why do we experience His presence only in fleeting moments, if at all? How do we let go of the illusions that imprison us to discover direct and felt liberation - not conceptually or in the afterlife but right here and now? These were the questions that compelled Meister Eckhart to reflection, spiritual practice, and discovery. In this in-depth learning program, James Finley guides us through teachings and meditations for bringing Meister Eckhart´s wisdom into our daily lives - to find for ourselves ´´the indestructible joy that that transcends even death´´, and to experience God not as a separate being but as the loving eternal center that sustains and embraces each of us and all of creation. 1.
