Longlisted for the 2017 International Dylan Thomas Prize God asked Abraham to sacrifice his beloved son Isaac, and Abraham replied obediently, "Here I am." This is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. Over the course of three weeks in present-day Washington, D.C., three sons watch their parents' marriage falter and their family home fall apart. Meanwhile, a large catastrophe is engulfing another part of the world: a massive earthquake devastates the Middle East, sparking a pan-Arab invasion of Israel. With global upheaval in the background and domestic collapse in the foreground, Jonathan Safran Foer asks us: What is the true meaning of home? Can one man ever reconcile the conflicting duties of his many roles– husband, father, son? And how much of life can a person ultimately bear?

During stressful times, it’s easy to get caught up in feeling anxious, tense, foggy, and overloaded. Here, a popular psychologist shares easy-to-use techniques for managing and rebalancing these emotions and helps you to find your calm, strong center. Dr. Leonard Felder draws from his work with clients over the last thirty years, and incorporates traditional Jewish prayers and blessings that have been used for centuries to refocus the mind. The author has a long history of multi-faith counseling and dialogue and has made these stress-management practices resonant with people of all religious backgrounds who are looking for more awareness, clarity, and calmness when faced with stress-related emotions. In this book you'll learn how to: • Regain your equilibrium when you feel pulled in too many directions • Outsmart your moody, anxious brain • Know when to intervene and when to let go in a situation • Respond with wisdom when someone treats you harshly • Find inner quiet and peace when you feel agitated • And much more In each chapter, Felder includes examples drawn from his client's experiences and explanations from mind-body psychology and neuroscience to support the effectiveness of this kind of mindfulness practice.

Instant New York Times Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book of 2016 A Time Magazine Top 10 Novel of 2016 A Times Literary Supplement Best Book of 2016 “Dazzling . . . A profound novel about the claims of identity, history, family, and the burdens of a broken world.” —Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s “Fresh Air” In the book of Genesis, when God calls out, “Abraham!” before ordering him to sacrifice his son, Isaac, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” Later, when Isaac calls out, “My father!” before asking him why there is no animal to slaughter, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” How do we fulfill our conflicting duties as father, husband, and son; wife and mother; child and adult? Jew and American? How can we claim our own identities when our lives are linked so closely to others’? These are the questions at the heart of Jonathan Safran Foer’s first novel in eleven years—a work of extraordinary scope and heartbreaking intimacy. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks in present-day Washington, D.C., Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia Bloch and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the meaning of home—and the fundamental question of how much aliveness one can bear. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence, and emotional urgency that readers loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foer’s most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet. It not only confirms Foer’s stature as a dazzling literary talent but reveals a novelist who has fully come into his own as one of our most important writers.

Constant noise and distraction clamor for our attention and make it difficult to distinguish God's voice from the voices surrounding us--both internal and external. We can be immobilized by fear of failure and our own insecurities, leaving us uncertain that it is God's voice we hear. A fresh voice for a new generation, Brittany Rust teaches believers how to discern the voice of God and live out the plans God has for them by · silencing the other voices so it's God's voice that prevails · tuning out the world and tuning in to the voice of God · gaining the confidence to step out in faith It's time for us to separate the loud, external distractions from the quiet whisper of our beautiful God, who promises us that when we call his name, he is ready to respond.

When I was that little boy in my book, I heard in that little church my Father say "here I am." I heard once again when I was about twenty-six, "Here I am." The voice of my Father has never left my heart all these years. Now I wait for His return to once again say, "Here I am. You have been a good and faithful servant." Amen.

In sharing them, I want to take you back to the place where I grew up: the streets, the triple- Decker homes, and people of Jewish Boston. The book is accompanied by period photos.

The world at times seems covered in darkness, but the light we are searching for is within each of us. It has never left us, and never will. Here I Am is an examination of that darkness and light, a poetic revaluation of the mind. Through free verse and rhyming poetry and song, it explores the difficult and complex journey of life, showing the true sense of what it means to be a survivor. How to overcome, and how to find the strength within. We all face periods in our life that make us want to give up. The only chance we have is to reach deep within our souls and discover that we are not alone. This poetry collection gives readers that chance, and holds their hand as they walk the path.
