In the history of popular television, there are not many shows that have addressed the issues of adolescence, family values, diversity, prejudice, and physical and mental disabilities so directly and fully as Life Goes On. The unique flavor of this daring series (which debuted on ABC in 1989, and which has recently been released on DVD) went straight to the heart of the American-viewing public. Now, the creation, development, and ever-increasing popularity of this this ground-breaking and heartwarming small screen classic is explored in LIFE STORY - THE BOOK OF LIFE GOES ON: TV'S FIRST AND BEST FAMILY SHOW OF CHALLENGE, written by best-selling author Herbie J Pilato (Bewitched Forever, The Kung Fu Book of Caine). Inside the pages of LIFE STORY, the reader will find revealing commentary from Pilato's exclusive interviews with cast members such as the Golden-Globe-nominated Chris Burke (who played Corky Thacher, the high-school teen with Down syndrome, which Burke has in real life), the Emmy-winning Chad Lowe (who portrayed the AIDS-stricken Jesse McKenna), and the Family-Television-Award winning Kellie Martin (who was Becca Thacher, sister to Corky and loyal young love to Jesse, and who is now the star of the Hallmark Channel new hit series, Mystery Woman). Also interviewed for LIFE STORY, were pristine behind-the-scenes team players including director/producer Michael Nankin and creator/executive producer Michael Braverman (the latter of whom has penned the book's foreword). Life Goes On continues to inspire viewers, and reaches beyond the realm of average entertainment with superior production values and credible, yet compelling, universal stories, each delivered with a sincere dedication in presenting good television. LIFE STORY - THE BOOK OF LIFE GOES ON: TV'S FIRST AND BEST FAMILY SHOW OF CHALLENGE captures that same spirit and transfers it into literary form.

"It's a terrible feeling to see the fate of thousands of people dependent on a single person. . . . It seems like a mass judgment to me: life or death." On December 17, 1941, twenty-year-old Eva Mándlová arrived at the Nazi's "model" concentration camp, Theresienstadt. From that day until she was freed three and a half years later, she kept a diary. At times sweet and personal, at times agonized and profound, Eva is a human voice amidst inhuman evil. Through Eva's eyes, the camp sometimes "even resembles normal life," as she makes friends and talks with Benny, or Egon, or Otto. But at any moment, anyone may be "selected" for a transport to "Poland." No one ever returns from "Poland." Never before published, Eva's diary is a true-life Sophie's Choice in which each day brings impossible decisions. As a Gentile man inexplicably helps her, Eva must decide who should share her bounty. As close friends and loved ones are sent away, she has to decide, over and over again, whether to ask to join them on their final journey.

Facebook. Twitter. Snapchat. We live in a rapidly changing world, a world that seems to be increasingly inhospitable toward preaching. In the face of digital technology, social media, cultural pluralism, and pastoral burnout, how can Christian preachers proclaim the gospel faithfully and effectively? This book answers that question by bringing together a selection of important voices from across North America, Asia, and the Pacific. It argues that Spirit-empowered preaching is characterized by five attributes: it opens the Scriptures, engages the culture, addresses the listener, dissects the preacher, and elevates the Savior. With contributions from authors like William Willimon, Darrell Johnson, Lynne Baab, Robert Smith Jr., and Paul Windsor, this is an excellent resource for ordained ministers, lay preachers, theological students, and anyone wrestling with the challenge of preaching God's word in a smartphone world.

Hans Keilson's superb first book which was banned by the Nazis in 1934. Published when the author was just twenty-three, Life Goes On was Hans Keilson's literary debut, an extraordinary autobiographical novel that paints a dark yet illuminating portrait of Germany between the world wars. It tells the story of Max Seldersen — a Jewish store owner modelled on Keilson's father, a textile merchant and decorated World War I veteran — along with his wife, Else, and son, Albrecht, and the troubles they encounter as the German economy collapses and politics turn rancid. Life Goes On was banned by the Nazis in 1934. Shortly afterwards, following his editor's advice, Keilson emigrated to the Netherlands, where he would spend the rest of his life. At the age of one hundred, with his one copy of the first edition of Life Goes On in hand, Keilson told The New York Times that he would love to see his first novel reissued, and translated as well. 'Then you would have my whole biography,' he told them. He died at the age of one hundred and one.

We are the last individuals of our species on Earth. How shall we respond? How shall we act? If industrial civilization is maintained, climate change will cause human extinction in the near term. If industrial civilization falls, sufficient ionizing radiation will be released from the world's nuclear power plants to cause human extinction in the near term. In the wake of this horrific conclusion, conservation biologist Guy McPherson proposes we act with compassion, courage, and creativity. He suggests we act with the kind of empathy for which humans are renowned. In other words, he suggests we act with decency toward the humans and other organisms with which we share this beautiful planet. Going Dark is the story of one scientist's response to the horrors we face. It is a deeply personal narrative infused with abundant evidence to support its terrifying claims. In the words of syndicated cartoonist David Fitzsimmons, McPherson's "approach is disarming and his message is both life-changing and convincingly alarming. A blend of Paul Revere with Rachel Carson, Guy McPherson is a significant voice of rational conscience nudging in the wilderness. Fierce as Ed Abbey, and equally prophetic, Professor McPherson is a modern-day John Muir with a global perspective. Beyond the warnings is a body of thoughtful and pragmatic real world ideas."

The members of a top secret SEAL Team can’t keep their passion under wraps in the first novel in this contemporary romantic suspense series from New York Times bestselling author Monica McCarty. Like Rome’s Lost Legion, a SEAL platoon goes on a mission and vanishes without a trace... After walking into a trap on a covert op in Russia, the men from top secret SEAL Team Nine are presumed dead. Not knowing whom they can trust, and with war hanging in the balance, the survivors must go dark and scatter around the globe. Marine ecologist Annie Henderson joins her new boyfriend on a trip to the Western Isles of Scotland to protest a hazardous offshore drilling venture. When she realizes that she may be swept up in something far more dangerous than she’d intended, there is only one man she can turn to... She and the mysterious but sexy dive boat captain haven’t exactly gotten off to the best start, but something about his quiet confidence makes her think that he’s the kind of man she can depend on. Because he’s gruff and guarded, she can tell Dan Warren has secrets. But she could never imagine how high the stakes are for him to keep his cover, even as he risks everything to protect her...

The New York Times Book Review calls Edgar Award–winner James W. Hall a "master of suspense" and this new high-stakes thriller Going Dark shows why as Thorn embarks on a mission to save his newfound son Earth Liberation Front, known as ELF, is a loosely knit organization comprised of environmental activists scattered around the country. These extremists take a "by any means necessary" approach to defending the planet. In the last decade ELF has been responsible for close to a hundred million dollars in damage mainly through arson. The FBI ranks them, along with other eco-radicals, as the number one homegrown terrorist threat. Flynn Moss, Thorn's newly discovered son, has naively fallen in with an ELF cell in Miami which has its sights on Turkey Point, the largest nuclear power plant in the state. This ELF group has concocted a non-violent plan to shut the nuke plant down—nothing more than a huge publicity stunt to call attention to the dangers of nuclear power. But unbeknownst to some in the group, there are other members with a far more violent scheme in mind—to cause a radioactive catastrophe rivaling Chernobyl or Fukushima. With a growing sense of dread about the group's true intentions, Flynn summons Thorn to help him escape from Prince Key, the remote island off the shores of Miami where the ELF group is camped. Unable to refuse this son he barely knows, Thorn heads off to Prince Key and quickly reaches a frightening realization. There is only one way to save his son's life. He must join with the eco-terrorists and help them complete their deadly mission.

With her tiny red rocker turned upside down atop a pile of furniture packed in a mule-drawn wagon, little Norma Seto moved with her family to Turkey Branch in Magoffin County Kentucky in preparation for another year of sharecropping a small farm. Experiencing early life in houses without indoor plumbing or electricity, Norma first enjoyed the taste of a soda pop cooled in a nearby creek, the frustration of finding the dipper frozen in a bucket of water in an effort to relieve her thirst in the middle of the night, and the enjoyment of a flavorful dish of poke greens. In a collection of true stories of those who lived in eastern Kentucky mostly during the forties, fifties, and sixties, Seto chronicles the experiences of not just her family but also the faith, laughter, sadness, and celebrations of those around them. While focusing on the strength and ingenuity that these Kentuckians relied on to overcome hardship, Seto leads others back to a time when a good work ethic was embraced, a strong faith in God was encouraged, and the simple gifts in life were appreciated. “Through her heartwarming, humorous, and entertaining memoir of growing up in the hills of eastern Kentucky, Norma invites us to meet colorful characters who lived life the way it was meant to be lived – simply and to the fullest.” —Dr. Jeffrey F. Neal, Director, Cooperative Education Program, Clemson University

How far can you see? A mile? A hundred miles? Or to the furthest shores of the universe to a far away galaxy? Going Dark explores contemporary society's lost connection with the night sky and its wonder at the cosmos, with a portrait of one astronomer slowly losing his sight and how one man's vision becomes illuminated by darkness. It's Max's job to ask the cosmic questions. Passionate about astronomy, he works as the narrator at the city's planetarium where he challenges his audiences with the mysteries of stars and science.When his own life takes an unexpected turn, Max discovers that understanding the universe requires a different kind of vision. Representing a unique collaboration between the innovative theatre company Sound&Fury and playwright Hattie Naylor, Going Dark will be produced using highly original theatre vocabulary of immersive surround sound design, total darkness and imaginative lighting and projections. Sound&Fury's innovative style of collaborative theatre combines the shared skills of theatrical storytelling, writing, performance, visual art and sound design to create both immersive performance pieces and a startling new theatrical language. This has been described as 'Total theatre that doesn't just happen all around you, but that swallows you up completely ... you feel as if you are experiencing the whole thing through your skin" (Guardian). This play is an example of innovative, immersive theatre-making at its best and explores contemporary society's lost connection with the night sky and its wonder at the cosmos.

Jesus once said, "Whoever drinks of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty." So why are Christians still thirsty? We throw ourselves into church work, Bible studies, prayer, missions, fellowship. Yet still we search restlessly for something more. What are we missing?Perhaps the answer is, more of Jesus. Church meetings and programs, ministry, Christian counseling, and home groups are all good, but they are not him. It doesn't matter how devoted we are to these wonderful activities; they are not the same thing as communion with Jesus. Our souls crave him alone.In Sacred Thirst, author and pastor Craig Barnes brings us face-to-face with our desperate longing for God. Like the woman at the well, we have tried to satisfy our parched souls with so many other things—even religious things. But when we get to the bottom of our desire, we find Jesus quietly waiting with his living water—intimatecommunion with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.This book is filled with unique insights into human experience and the character of God. With his keen understanding of the needs of contemporary Christians, Barnes points to the only way our thirst will ever be satisfied. Drawing from his rich background in the Bible and his tender insights as a pastor, he leads us into a new understanding ofourselves and the uncontrollable but gracious God we seek.
