What sets "George Washington's Sacred Fire" apart from all previous works on this man for the ages, is the exhaustive fifteen years of Dr. Peter Lillback's research, revealing a unique icon driven by the highest of ideals. Only do George Washington's own writings, journals, letters, manuscripts, and those of his closest family and confidants reveal the truth of this awe-inspiring role model for all generations. Dr. Lillback paints a picture of a man, who, faced with unprecedented challenges and circumstances, ultimately drew upon his persistent qualities of character - honesty, justice, equity, perseverence, piety, forgiveness, humility, and servant leadership, to become one of the most revered figures in world history. George Washington set the cornerstone for what would become one of the most prosperous, free nations in the history of civilization. Through this book, Dr. Lillback, assisted by Jerry Newcombe, will reveal to the reader a newly inspirational image of General and President George Washington.

When one reaches the highest degree of human maturity, one has only one question left: How can I be helpful?—TERESA OF ÁVILA Beloved author Ronald Rolheiser continues his search for an accessible and penetrating Christian spirituality in this highly anticipated follow-up to the contemporary classic, The Holy Longing. With his trademark acuity, wit, and thoughtfulness, Rolheiser shows how identifying and embracing discipleship will lead to new heights of spiritual awareness and maturity. In this new book, Rolheiser takes us on a journey through the dark night of the senses and of the spirit. Here, we experience the full gamut of human life, pleasure and fervor, disillusionment and boredom. But, as Rolheiser explains, when we embrace the struggle and yearning to know God we can experience too a profound re-understanding to our daily lives. “What lies beyond the essentials, the basics?” Rolheiser writes. “Where do we go once some of the basic questions in our lives have been answered, or at least brought to enough peace that our focus can shift away from ourselves to others? Where do we go once the basic questions in our lives are no longer the restless questions of youthful insecurity and loneliness? Who am I? Who loves me? How will my life turn out? Where do we go once the basic question in life becomes: How can I give my life away more purely, and more meaningfully? How do I live beyond my own heartaches, headaches, and obsessions so as to help make other peoples’ lives more meaningful? The intent of this book is to try to address exactly those questions: How can we live less self- centered, more mature lives? What constitutes deep maturity and how do we reach that place? And, not unimportantly, what constitutes a more adult, Christian discipleship? What constitutes a truly mature following of Jesus?” As the poet Rainer Maria Rilke suggests, “Live the questions now.” In Sacred Fire, Rolheiser’s deeply affecting prose urges us on in pursuit of the most holy of all passions—a deep and lasting intimacy with God.

There is no better time to stand up for your values than when they are under attack. In the decade following the attacks of 9/11, suspicion and animosity toward American Muslims has increased rather than subsided. Alarmist, hateful rhetoric once relegated to the fringes of political discourse has now become frighteningly mainstream, with pundits and politicians routinely invoking the specter of Islam as a menacing, deeply anti-American force. In Sacred Ground, author and renowned interfaith leader Eboo Patel says this prejudice is not just a problem for Muslims but a challenge to the very idea of America. Patel shows us that Americans from George Washington to Martin Luther King Jr. have been “interfaith leaders,” illustrating how the forces of pluralism in America have time and again defeated the forces of prejudice. And now a new generation needs to rise up and confront the anti-Muslim prejudice of our era. To this end, Patel offers a primer in the art and science of interfaith work, bringing to life the growing body of research on how faith can be a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division and sharing stories from the frontlines of interfaith activism. Patel asks us to share in his vision of a better America—a robustly pluralistic country in which our commonalities are more important than our differences, and in which difference enriches, rather than threatens, our religious traditions. Pluralism, Patel boldly argues, is at the heart of the American project, and this visionary book will inspire Americans of all faiths to make this country a place where diverse traditions can thrive side by side.

This book is about the most interesting key ever made, which now hangs in the central passageway of George Washington's Mount Vernon mansion, helping to greet over a million visitors a year. The main key to the Bastille prison in Paris, it was given in 1790 to Washington, the patriarch of liberty, by his missionary, the Marquis de Lafayette, who took the "sacred fire of liberty" he discovered in America and tried to fan its flames in France. Become a history detective and find out how this unique key was made, how the man who made it helped kill a king, and how it made its way to Mount Vernon. Along the way, learn about the interesting and unexpected twists and turns made in unlocking the doors hiding the truth about the key, which some (incorrectly) argue is a counterfeit. Then learn what Washington and Lafayette each believed was the "key"* to establishing and maintaining liberty, and what went right and wrong in their respective revolutions. Finally, learn how the key continues to inspire a world-wide devotion to freedom - with Washington's personal challenge to you. So, should we care that the Mount Vernon Bastille key is, in Lafayette's words, "the main key to the Bastille...the fortress of despotism"? Yes, we should care, because some, not the least of which was the French Count Chateaubriand, who witnessed the storming of the Bastille and later saw George Washington's key in Philadelphia, thought it was a fraud. Called the "greatest man in the world" by British King George III, was Washington with his genius of character the victim of a hoax? Should he have believed Lafayette, his "adopted son" and most fervent fan, that this was not only a Bastille key but its main key? How do we know how this "main key," if that's what it was, survived the chaos and pandemonium of the revolutionary attack on the Bastille in 1789 Paris to make its way into Lafayette's hands and thence, over a tortuous trip of 4,000 miles in 1790, to Washington in New York City? And why might Lafayette not have substituted a larger, more impressive-looking key such as the one he gave years later to Washington's Masonic Lodge [National Memorial] in Alexandria, Virginia? If it's not the real "main key," have "We the People," the tens of millions of visitors to Mount Vernon over the years, been fooled? And has George Washington, our preeminent Founding Father, who above all aspired to be an honest man, been an unwitting participant in such fraud? "Forbid it, Almighty God!"? Author Bill Bahr introduces and brings to life FerrousTM the key and his improbable journey from the iron foundries of 18th century France to a Bastille prison gate and finally to the entrance hall of George Washington's home, Mount Vernon. In this book, follow FerrousTM to learn what the best history work can tell about the truth behind what Mount Vernon tour-guides have called "George Washington's Liberty Key"! FerrousTM once represented tyranny and oppression - synonymous with the fate of a prisoner condemned without trial or hope. Now FerrousTM stands for the idea of liberty, so cherished by George Washington - in his own words - "a token of victory gained by Liberty over Despotism." What a transformation! While helping Lafayette get FerrousTM from France to George Washington in America, Thomas Paine said, "That the principles of America opened the Bastille is not to be doubted; and therefore the key comes to the right place." For more information about FerrousTM (the key "of" liberty), George Washington's ideas about the key "to" liberty, and your important role in his vision, you have come to the right place - this book. Buy it and let Washington and his key inspire and challenge you for a better tomorrow! $17.90 - a great price for a great year!! * From "The Mind" of Washington and Lafayette - "Character, Culture, and Constitution." N.B. Book endorsed by John "Locke," America's "key" political philosopher!: )
