Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.<br /><br />At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, <i>Man's Search for Meaning</i> had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found <i>Man's Search for Meaning</i> among the ten most influential books in America.

<p><strong>Learn the secret of living with contentment, peace, and security.</strong></p><p>Pause for a moment and ask yourself what your life would be like if it were completely without fear? If you did not fear death. If you did not fear life and what it might bring. If you did not fear any man, or woman, or any living creature. Would you live differently?<br /><br />In this unique work of never-before-published teaching, Dallas Willard revolutionizes our understanding of Psalm 23 by taking this comfortably familiar passage and revealing its extraordinary promises: “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.... I will fear no evil.” The psalmist claims to live without any need and without any fear. How is that possible?</p><p>Written with Willard’s characteristic gentle wisdom, Life Without Lack reveals the secret to enjoying God’s presence and becoming utterly caught up in his abundant generosity. The more we practice living in his presence, the more we experience the peace and freedom from worry that is promised in the psalm. Based on a series of talks by the late author and edited by his friend Larry Burtoft and by his daughter, Rebecca Willard Heatley, Life Without Lack will forever change the way you understand and apply the most well-known passage in all of Scripture.</p>

<b>Sid Roth, Host of "It's Supernatural," says...<br /><b><br /><strong>"Is it possible to take New Testament and denude the Jewish culture and get a full revelation? Of course not. But many Christians go their whole lives without all the pieces of the puzzle. My friend, Curt Landry, shows how the identity theft took place and fills in the missing pieces. Fall in love with Jesus all over again."</strong><br /><br /><strong>Perry Stone, Founder of Voice of Evangelism, International School of the Word, Omega International, and Manna Fest says...</strong><br /><br /><strong>"Curt Landry's <i>Reclaiming Our Forgotten Heritage</i> serves as a timely and groundbreaking take on the roots of the Christian Church and its place in the entirety of God's Kingdom. As Landry uncovers and unwraps the discovery of his own Jewish heritage and history, he also seeks to do the same for the body of Christ. This book attempts to answer the questions 'Who are we?' and 'Why are we here?' from the perspective of the whole body of believers. If we ignore some of the full story, we are missing some part of our identity-- and in identity, there is power, there is purpose, and there is covenant. </strong><br /><strong></strong><br /><strong><i>Reclaiming Our Forgotten Heritage</i> provides a valuable and unique take on this situation. As the body of Christ begins to reconnect with the olive tree onto which it has been grafted and as the fulfillment of Revelation draws nearer, there is no better time than now to learn about and become firmly grounded within your spiritual heritage."</strong><br /><br /><strong>Chuck Pierce, Author and President of Global Spheres and Glory of Zion International Ministries, says...</strong><br /><strong></strong><br /><strong>"<i>Reclaiming Our Forgotten Heritage</i> is a journey! This book was like reading a priceless painting in process. Curt Landry motivates each of us uncover our heritage. In process of reading you will 'see' how we each are grafted into Abraham's covenant. My faith soared from page to page. Landry is a major artist painting our roots and causing us to see our fruitful tree blossom! I do not know of a modern book that better displays One New Man. This book will be used by the Spirit of God to tear down the wall between Jew and Gentile. This is a must read!"</strong><br /><strong></strong><br /><strong>Rabbi Curt Landry, founding pastor of House of David Ministries, reveals how understanding the Jewish roots of Christianity leads to a more vibrant, secure, and powerful Christian walk.</strong><br /><strong></strong></b></b><strong><br />The church was created by Jesus, who was born Jewish yet primarily rejected by his family and his people. His early followers were both Jewish and gentile, and the church's early culture was rooted in Judaism and a Jewish understanding of God's relationship to his people. Over time, however, Christianity became increasingly more Roman than Jewish, and the church lost its identity.<br /><br />Rabbi Curt Landry's personal story is remarkably similar. Born out of wedlock to a Jewish mother and a Catholic father, Landry was put up for adoption. For over thirty years, he had no understanding of his heritage, his roots, or who his parents were. But when he discovered the truth of his story, his life changed completely.<br /><br />The key to a life of power and purpose is understanding who you are. In this revelatory new book, Curt Landry helps Christians discover their roots in Judaism, empowering them to walk in the revelation of who they really are and who they are born to be. <i>Reclaiming Our Forgotten Heritage</i> reveals the mysteries of the church, letting Christians grasp the power that comes from connecting with their identity.</strong>

His heart beat faster as the train entered the streets of Paris. He was far away from home. But then, "home" was gone. Everything that used to be home was gone. The war had taken it all.

Soon the maid's husband would set out for work. And their three teenage daughters would most likely go to school. Then he'd go and ask the maid to hide him. Just for the day. Then, at night, he'd run away. If she could only hide him for the day! <br /><br />He kept waiting in the woods.

<p><strong>The Psalms, which Thomas Merton called "one of the most valid forms of prayer for men of all time," are the most significant and influential collection of religious poems ever written, summing up the theology of the Old Testament and serving as daily nourishment for the devout.</strong></p><br />Bread in the Wilderness sets forth Merton's belief that "the Psalms acquire, for those who know how to enter into them, a surprising depth, a marvelous and inexhaustible actuality. They are bread, miraculously provided by Christ, to feed those who have followed Him into the wilderness." Merton's goal in this moving book is to help the reader enter into the Psalms: "The secret is placed in the hands of each Christian. It only needs to be discovered and fulfilled in our own lives." The new ND Classic edition of Bread in the Wilderness faithfully reproduces the beautiful, large-format original 1953 New Directions books, created by the celebrated designer Alvin Lustig and lavishly illustrated throughout with photographs of a remarkable medieval crucifix at Perpignan, France.
