Sharing the Burden explores the American response to the unprecedented massacre of over one million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire as a window onto the US rise to world power, its evolving relationship with Britain, and the development of ideas on global order at the turn of the twentieth century. In doing so, it provides a new perspective on US foreign relations, particularly during the presidencies of Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, the origins of the League of Nations, the development of Anglo-American relations, the shaping of the post-Ottoman Near East and the debate on the role of humanitarian intervention in American diplomacy.

Elliott Landy has his finger on the pulse of the Woodstock generation. He was there before the famous festival, hanging out with Dylan and The Band; he was the photographer of record at the festival itself; and he still lives in Woodstock today. Here he captures and preserves the true vision and pure essence of that incredibly influential event - what it was like to be part of the ´60s, sharing the spirit of unlimited hope, optimism, and the belief that the world can be made better through peace and love.
Bishop John Shelby Spong, author of Jesus for the Non-Religious, Why Christianity Must Change or Die, Sins of Scripture, and many other books, is known for his controversial ideas and fighting for minority rights. In Eternal Life: A New Vision, a remarkable spiritual journey about his lifelong struggle with the questions of God and death, he reveals how he came to a new conviction about eternal life. God, says Spong, is ultimately one, and each of us is part of that oneness. We do not live on after death as children who have been rewarded with heaven or punished with hell but as part of the life and being of God, sharing in God´s eternity, which is beyond the barriers of time and space. spong argues that the discovery of the eternal can be found within each of us if we go deeply into ourselves, transcend our limits and become fully human. By seeking God within, by living each day to its fullest, we will come to understand how we live eternally.Always compelling and controversial, Spong, the leading Christian liberal and pioneer for human rights, wrestles with the question that all of us will ultimately face. In his final book, Spong takes us beyond religion and even beyond Christianity until he arrives at the affirmation that the fully realized human life empties into and participates in the eternity of God. The pathway into God turns out to be both a pathway into ourselves and a doorway into eternal life. To Job´s question ´´If a man (or a woman) dies, will he (or she) live again?´´ he gives his answer as a ringing yes! 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Morgan.
