And the Angels Are Silent, by Yoseph Cohen Elran XVI. ´´Ezekiel went. Ezekiel is no longer here. Who can give me back the moment to change it? Those who can, allow me to give him one last hug and tell him how much I loved him. I´ve never said those words to him. But nothing can bring him back. A single moment. A touch. A liberating sigh just to get to the end of longing.´´ This is the story of Ezra, a child who tells the story of how his family, together with all the Jews of Baghdad, experienced riots and abuse, and the story of his younger brother, who was active in the Zionist underground. And the Angels Are Silent is a heroic chapter in the history of the Zionist struggle in the revival of the country. This fascinating, creative, and mesmerizing tale penetrates the individual soul and the souls of the nation and raises the question of divine intervention in human life.

For over 30 years, The Silent Garden has offered parents of deaf children the support and unbiased information needed to fully realize their children’s potential. This completely revised third edition is a must-have resource that will help parents navigate the complex and unique challenges they face. Accessible, practical, and above all open-minded, The Silent Garden educates parents quickly and thoroughly about the many conflicting points of view on what is best for their deaf children. Authors Paul W. Ogden and David H. Smith, who are both deaf, present examples and research that guide parents through often unfamiliar territory. From coping mechanisms for parents to advice on creating healthy home environments, the authors cover a range of topics that impact day-to-day actions and decision making.

Each topic is accompanied by real-life stories that offer further insight. Always encouraging, The Silent Garden empowers parents to be the best advocates for their deaf children.

The role of the Holy Spirit in a Christian´s life is often misunderstood. Some believers focus solely on spiritual gifts, some emphasize the practical over the spiritual, and others avoid the subject altogether. Yet in spite of the apparent confusion, the truth is surprisingly simple: God´s Spirit is a vital part of our relationship with him. The Silent Shepherd offers a balanced, scripturally sound look at the personality, works, and deity of the Holy Spirit. Drawing from over 40 years in ministry, pastor and author John MacArthur, Jr. clears away misconceptions, offers fresh insights, and shares how God´s Spirit can guide, lead, and empower every believer. This revised and updated edition includes a guide for both personal and group studies and features discovery questions, suggestions for prayer, and activities, all designed to connect life-changing truths with everyday living. 1.

Speak up for yourself - we want to know what you have to say.From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless, outcast, because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. As time passes, she becomes increasingly isolated and practically stops talking altogether. Only her art class offers any solace, and it is through her work on an art project that she is finally able to face what really happened at that terrible party: She was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. Her healing process has just begun when she has another violent encounter with him. But this time Melinda fights back, refuses to be silent, and thereby achieves a measure of vindication. A timeless novel about consent and finding the courage to speak up for yourself, the 20th anniversary edition of the classic novel that has spoken to so many young adults now includes a new introduction written and read by acclaimed writer, host, speaker, and cultural commentator Ashley C. Ford as well as an afterword written and read by New York Times best-selling author of All American Boys and Long Way Down Jason Reynolds.
