Seeking Christmas is a series of family devotions and guided, hands-on activities that give your family meaningful traditions, rich experiences, and treasured memories. More than just another Christmas devotion, Seeking Christmas is an experience. One that will grow with your family, that you will treasure for generations to come. Seek the true meaning of Christmas, find the gift that is waiting to be unwrapped by you.
The future of the relationship between Israel and America is deeply uncertain: the current political leadership of both countries is hostile to the other, there is no longer a sense of shared strategic focus, and demographic changes are forcing the countries further apart with every passing year. The Start-up Nation may be enjoying a tech boom, but it also has booming inequality, booming numbers of poor and underemployed people, and booming numbers of orthodox religious conservatives (half of all Israeli preschoolers are Arab or ultra-Orthodox). In America, the increasing numbers of Jews marrying outside the faith and the precipitous decline of the influence of Evangelical Christians has narrowed the base of people devoted to the land of Israel. In the face of tectonic shifts, the alliance between America and Israel is strained to the point of rupture. The situation is dangerous for both sides, and it comes at a dangerous time for the Middle East, which will be wracked by the aftereffects of the Arab uprisings and the growth of ISIS for a generation. And for America, the success of the “pivot to Asia” will be undermined by a departure from the Middle East that leaves Israel in the role of regional wrecking ball. Undermining the relationship between Israel and the US is the fact that it was never clearly defined. The ambiguity has been politically helpful, but now threatens the future: there is no treaty, no agreed set of obligations, no mutual dependence. So when things get sour there is nothing to fall back upon except historical memory. Simon and Allin are among the shrewdest analysts of and practitioners inside the world of US-Israeli diplomacy. They have written an urgent, revelatory book showing the emerging fault lines between two previously staunch allies and the tremendous perils of a schism. And, they offer ways in which even at this late, disgruntled, embittered stage, the two sides might yet find a way toward a common future.
Der junge Künstler Gustav Glander wird im New York der 1990er-Jahre zum Star der Eat-Art-Bewegung. Seine kulinarisch geprägten Arbeiten und Aktionen sind spektakuläre Inszenierungen und treffen den Nerv der Zeit, Kritiker und Sammler stürzen sich auf die Werke des schweigsamen Deutschen. Doch der Erfolg bereitet ihm Unbehagen. Nach einem Flug in die Heimat verschwindet Glander. Spurlos. Zwölf Jahre später: Ein Restaurant in Hamburg. Es herrscht Hochbetrieb in Küche und Service. Im Speiseraum sitzt auch der bekannte Kunstkritiker Gerd Möninghaus. Dem kommt einer der anderen Gäste seltsam bekannt vor. Zu spät fällt Möninghaus ein: War das etwa Glander? Als kurze Zeit später bislang unbekannte Skizzen des verschollenen Künstlers in der Redaktion auftauchen, beginnt der engagierte Journalist zu recherchieren. Seine Suche führt ihn von Hamburg nach New York, nach St. Moritz, an den Bodensee und ins Allgäu – und er macht dabei eine überraschende Entdeckung. Stevan Paul geht in seinem ersten Roman »Der große Glander« der Frage nach, was Essen zur Kunst macht. Er erzählt von der Liebe, vom Heimkommen und von der Freiheit, sich immer wieder selbst neu erfinden zu können.
Herausgekommen ist ein leidenschaftliches Plädoyer für die Sorgfalt und das Authentische, eine Liebeserklärung ans Kochen – und ein großer Spaß.

In 2013, Greg Kalkwarf finished the Boston Marathon with a personal record of 3:56:03. Minutes later, a loud boom cracked the sky. Running a marathon—through a snowstorm—up and down a 14,000-foot mountain is a challenge. But, enduring that journey served as great preparation for the life-changing moments Greg Kalkwarf experienced in a 13-month period: a raging forest fire, the tragic death of a family member, the happy birth of a baby girl, a crosswalk collision with a taxi cab, and a terrorist bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Greg’s experience illustrates goal-setting, trying new challenges, determination, self-belief, and overcoming adversity. His journey encompasses a spectrum of emotions, captured in a 26.2-chapter book reflecting the miles of a marathon experience.
