He was a serious 'face' in London's East End. His jackets were tailored to hold his machete and knuckledusters. His drug deals netted him thousands. He has a penthouse, sports cars and women. He nearly killed a man outside a nightclub. Then something extraordinary happened. Previous ed.: London: Darton, Longman & Todd, 2002.
"There seems to be a growing consensus around ‘Discipleship’ as the greatest challenge facing Christians in the West - and, as usual, Alison Morgan has not only identified the key issue but also provided a lucid and practical insight into what it means. I love her writing. Somehow she manages to combine substantial scholarship with highly personal reflection and down to earth illustration, so this book – like her previous work – is easy to read as well as intellectually and spiritually stimulating. If you are looking for something to excite people about Christian discipleship, this is it." from the foreword by Bishop James Newcome.
Fr. Dominic Savio Obour is a Catholic priest who hails from Ghana and was ordained into the diocese of Sunyani. For well over six years, he worked as the first substantive chaplain of the Notre Dame Girls High School, Fiapre Sunyani where he doubled as a full time teacher as well. Currently the young priest is studying for his M.A. in communications in Iona College, New Rochelle, while also ministering at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, Katonah, New York. He has also authored Cry of the Hopeless:Inspiring Personal Poems for Daily Living (Westbow Press,May 2012) He has worked primarily with youth and has a deep interest in people of all backgrounds. It therefore comes as no wonder and surprise that this book emanates from his hand, since it seeks to address one of the critical issues facing youth today. In fact, this book is a product of his encounters and interactions with youth and the challenges he has shared with them.But, the importance of the topic and its applicability to all humankind makes this a book for all people of all ages and backgrounds. If indeed you accept the fact that you have ever made a blunder in your life before or know of one struggling with clouds from his past, then this book is a must-read. In this book, Fr. Dominic affirms the messsage he shares with all: No matter how dark and filthy your past, how great your blunders, you are not defined by that past. It is who you now are that counts, it is the "you today" that is of concern to God. It is that which defines and explains who and what you are. No matter what, you still have the grace and the moment to change and be loved."

Success is a personal responsibility. Our culture tells us that to succeed is to be slim, rich, happy, extroverted, popular – flawless. The pressure to conform to this ideal has changed who we are.

To explain how we got here, Will Storr takes us on a journey across continents and centuries. Full of thrilling and unexpected connections between history, psychology, economics, neuroscience and more, Selfie is an unforgettable book that makes sense of who we have become.

Making a Promised Land examines the interconnected histories of African American representation, urban life, and citizenship as documented in still and moving images of Harlem over the last century. Paula J. Massood analyzes how photography and film have been used over time to make African American culture visible to itself and to a wider audience and charts the ways in which the “Mecca of the New Negro” became a battleground in the struggle to define American politics, aesthetics, and citizenship. Visual media were first used as tools for uplift and education. With Harlem’s downturn in fortunes through the 1930s, narratives of black urban criminality became common in sociological tracts, photojournalism, and film. These narratives were particularly embodied in the gangster film, which was adapted to include stories of achievement, economic success, and, later in the century, a nostalgic return to the past. Among the films discussed are Fights of Nations (1907), Dark Manhattan (1937), The Cool World (1963), Black Caesar (1974), Malcolm X (1992), and American Gangster (2007). Massood asserts that the history of photography and film in Harlem provides the keys to understanding the neighborhood’s symbolic resonance in African American and American life, especially in light of recent urban redevelopment that has redefined many of its physical and demographic contours.
