Book Summary:

As seen in Time, USA TODAY, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, and on CBS This Morning, BBC, PBS, CNN, and NPR, iGen is crucial reading to understand how the children, teens, and young adults born in the mid-1990s and later are vastly different from their Millennial predecessors, and from any other generation. With generational divides wider than ever, parents, educators, and employers have an urgent need to understand today’s rising generation of teens and young adults. Born in the mid-1990s up to the mid-2000s, iGen is the first generation to spend their entire adolescence in the age of the smartphone. With social media and texting replacing other activities, iGen spends less time with their friends in person—perhaps contributing to their unprecedented levels of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. But technology is not the only thing that makes iGen distinct from every generation before them; they are also different in how they spend their time, how they behave, and in their attitudes toward religion, sexuality, and politics. They socialize in completely new ways, reject once sacred social taboos, and want different things from their lives and careers. More than previous generations, they are obsessed with safety, focused on tolerance, and have no patience for inequality. With the first members of iGen just graduating from college, we all need to understand them: friends and family need to look out for them; businesses must figure out how to recruit them and sell to them; colleges and universities must know how to educate and guide them. And members of iGen also need to understand themselves as they communicate with their elders and explain their views to their older peers. Because where iGen goes, so goes our nation—and the world.

Book Summary:

The testimonies of six survivors of the Holocaust are presented in comics form, aimed at teenage readers. Some of them were children then, and are still alive to tell what happened to them and their families. How they survived. What they lost--and how you keep on living, despite it all. Jessica Bab Bonde has, based on survivor's stories, written an important book. Peter Bergting's art makes the book accessible, despite its difficult subject. Using first-person point of view allows the stories to get under your skin as survivors describe their persecutions in the Ghetto, the de-humanization and the starvation in the concentration camps, and the industrial-scale mass murder taking place in the extermination camps. When right-wing extremism and antisemitism are being evoked once again, it's the alarm-bell needed to remind us never to forget the horrors of the Holocaust.

Book Summary:

Gospel Shaped Church is a curriculum from The Gospel Coalition that will help whole congregations pause and think carefully and prayerfully about the kind of church they are called to be. This nine-week whole-church resource will help members see both the priority of evangelism for our churches, and to see the role that everyone can play in reaching out to those who are lost without Christ. The Leader's Guide contains everything you need to lead this flexible course. Many Christians are nervous about telling someone else about Jesus. We prefer to leave it up to the preacher, or to those we see as particularly gifted for evangelism in our congregations. But all believers are called to make disciples. The nine sessions in this curriculum don't offer quick fixes or evangelism "gimmicks". But by continually pointing us back to the gospel, they will give us the proper motivation to work together as a church to share the gospel message with those who are lost without Christ. This flexible resource will train your whole church through teaching, preaching, daily reading and small-group Bible study and discussion-or any combination of those elements. The overall aim is that your church will embark on a journey to discover the kind of people they should be as they are shaped by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Works alongside the Gospel Shaped Outreach DVD and the Gospel Shaped Outreach Handbook for use by church members.

Book Summary:

The high degree of internet penetration and its social (and linguistic) effects evidently influence how people, and especially the highly susceptible younger generations, use language. The primary aim of the book is not only to identify the characteristic features of the digital language variety (this has already been done by several works) but to examine how digital communication affects the language of other mediums of communication: orality, handwritten texts, digitally created but not digitally perceived, that is printed texts, including in particular advertisements (which quickly respond to linguistic change). Naturally, the book presents the characteristics of the digital language variety (and coins the term digilect) but only to give a framework to the impact analysis. It is important to document changes in progress and thus direct attention to potential outcomes. The current linguistic change is different from previous ones primarily in its speed and form of spreading, and it not only brings innovative grammatical forms and writing/spelling solutions but may also have far-reaching cultural and educational consequences in the long run.

Enogtyve historier, der barskt og uden omsvøb og med en god portion sort humor bekræfter, at en skilsmisse er hård, men også at det er muligt at komme igennem den som en hel person med større styrke, modenhed og livsduelighed. "Op igen!" henvender sig ikke blot til mennesker i en skilsmissesituation, men i lige så høj grad til folk, der vil redde et forhold, der er begyndt at knirke. Det er en krisebog, men med et livsbekræftende budskab.

Book Summary:

Elizabeth Strouts ikoniske og elskede karakter fra Olive Kitteridge er tilbage i denne selvstændige efterfølger, Olive, igen. Som alderdommen nærmer sig, ændrer Olives liv sig. Hun ser frem mod et liv uden sin man Henry, med den ensomhed, som alderdommen kan føre med sig, men også med den nye, spirende kærlighed, som hendes nye livssituation giver grobund for. Gennem tretten historier følger vi Olives forsøg på at forstå sig selv, sin nye situation og de mennesker, der omgiver hende. Med indsigt og empati giver Elizabeth Strout stemme til en enestående karakter, som lytter til andre mennesker, når de har allermest brug for det. Igennem deres historier får vi indblik i en perlerække af menneskeliv i den lille by Crosby, Maine. ”Strout har formået at få mig til at elske denne besynderlige kvinde, som jeg aldrig har mødt, og som jeg ikke vidste det mindste om. Hvor er hun en fantastisk forfatter.” The Guardian ”Et intimt, mangefacetteret og rørende portræt.” New York Times Book Review ”Olive er en genial karakter, ikke kun på grund af hendes evige krakileri, men fordi hun er lige så brutalt ærlig om sine egne fejl som hun er om andres. (...) Det store, forfærdelige rod som livet er, vælter ud over siderne i denne rørende bog.” The Wall Street Journal

Book Summary:

An optimistic and nuanced portrait of a generation that has much to teach us about how to live and collaborate in our digital world. Born since the mid-1990s, members of Generation Z comprise the first generation never to know the world without the internet, and the most diverse generation yet. As Gen Z starts to emerge into adulthood and enter the workforce, what do we really know about them? And what can we learn from them? Gen Z, Explained is the authoritative portrait of this significant generation. It draws on extensive interviews that display this generation’s candor, surveys that explore their views and attitudes, and a vast database of their astonishingly inventive lexicon to build a comprehensive picture of their values, daily lives, and outlook. Gen Z emerges here as an extraordinarily thoughtful, promising, and perceptive generation that is sounding a warning to their elders about the world around them—a warning of a complexity and depth the “OK Boomer” phenomenon can only suggest. ​ Much of the existing literature about Gen Z has been highly judgmental. In contrast, this book provides a deep and nuanced understanding of a generation facing a future of enormous challenges, from climate change to civil unrest. What’s more, they are facing this future head-on, relying on themselves and their peers to work collaboratively to solve these problems. As Gen Z, Explained shows, this group of young people is as compassionate and imaginative as any that has come before, and understanding the way they tackle problems may enable us to envision new kinds of solutions. This portrait of Gen Z is ultimately an optimistic one, suggesting they have something to teach all of us about how to live and thrive in this digital world.

Book Summary:

Da Mira så den lille, sky, forsømte pony første gang, var den stiv som en robot. Derfor kaldte hun ham Robot. Hun elskede ham fra første øjeblik. Men at elske ham og ride på ham – det er ikke helt det samme. Mira kan jo ikke ride. Hun er dog ikke den, der giver op, så hun knokler på sammen med sin ven Gustav, som allerede har hjulpet hende så meget. Mira har det ikke altid lige nemt. Men uanset hvor mange problemer, hun kan have med veninder, drenge og skole, så er der én, der aldrig svigter: hendes dejlige hest, Robot. Lin Hallberg (f. 1956) er en svensk forfatter og ridelærer, der har skrevet en lang række børne- og ungdomsbøger. Mange af Lin Hallbergs bøger handler om heste, og hun er særlig kendt for bøgerne om hesten Robot.

Book Summary:

"Den næste Dag kom vi gennem Paris. Det var jo ikke som Sejrherre, men som Krigsfanger. Civilbefolkningen saa ikke paa os med milde Øjne, tværtimod! Det var nu heller ikke saa mærkeligt, naar vi vilde lægge deres Land øde. Havde vi ikke været bevogtet, var vi ganske bestemt ikke kommet levende igennem alle de mange Byer, vi herefter passerede." Sådan skriver en af de op mod 30.000 sønderjyder, der deltog i 1. verdenskrig på tysk side. Sønderjylland havde været tysk siden nederlaget i 1864, og det betød, at de unge danske mænd i regionen blev indrulleret i kejserens hær. 6.000 af dem mistede livet for en sag, der ikke var deres. Foreningen af dansksindede sønderjydske Krigsdeltagere 1914-18 (DSK) samlede i perioden 1941-1972 vidnesbyrd fra disse unge mænd. Det blev til mere end 600 både dramatiske og hjerteskærende historier fra fronten. Denne udgivelse rummer alle de beretninger, der blev trykt i DSK’s årbog fra 1955. Samtlige beretninger fra årbøgerne er udgivet som e-bøger under serienavnet "Øjenvidner 1914-1918".

Book Summary:

Smartphone-generationen, av författaren döpt till iGen, är den grupp ungdomar och barn som är födda 19952012. Som generation skiljer den sig från tidigare generationer. De är mindre benägna att ha sex, dricka alkohol och ta körkort. De läser betydligt färre böcker och tidningar, jobbar mindre och lägger mindre tid på att träffa andra människor. Men det kanske viktigaste av allt de har en väsentligt sämre psykisk hälsa än tidigare generationer. Orsaken till den omvälvande beteendeförändringen i den här generationen är det faktum att så gott som alla har växt upp med och lever med en smartphone. Författarens hypotes är att det är detta som påverkar de ungas mentala hälsa och sociala medier pekas ut som den stora boven.

Book Summary:

A youth movement is reenergizing global environmental activism. The “climate generation”—late millennials and iGen, or Generation Z—is demanding that policy makers and government leaders take immediate action to address the dire outcomes predicted by climate science. Those inheriting our planet’s environmental problems expect to encounter challenges, but they may not have the skills to grapple with the feelings of powerlessness and despair that may arise when they confront this seemingly intractable situation. Drawing on a decade of experience leading and teaching in college environmental studies programs, Sarah Jaquette Ray has created an “existential tool kit” for the climate generation. Combining insights from psychology, sociology, social movements, mindfulness, and the environmental humanities, Ray explains why and how we need to let go of eco-guilt, resist burnout, and cultivate resilience while advocating for climate justice. A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety is the essential guidebook for the climate generation—and perhaps the rest of us—as we confront the greatest environmental threat of our time.

Book Summary:

The author of Generation Me explores the spread of narcissism in today’s culture and its catastrophic effects at every level of society. Narcissism—an inflated view of the self—is everywhere. Public figures say it’s what makes them stray from their wives. Teenagers and young adults hone it on social media, and celebrity newsmakers have elevated it to an art form. And it’s what’s making people depressed, lonely, and buried under piles of debt. Dr. Jean Twenge joins forces with W. Keith Campbell, PhD, a nationally recognized expert on narcissism, to explore this new plague in The Narcissism Epidemic. Even the world economy has been damaged by risky, unrealistic overconfidence. Drawing on their own extensive research as well as decades of other experts’ studies, Twenge and Campbell show us how to identify narcissism, minimize the forces that sustain and transmit it, and treat it or manage it where we find it. Filled with arresting, alarming, and even amusing stories of vanity gone off the tracks, The Narcissism Epidemic is at once a riveting window into the consequences of narcissism, a prescription to combat the widespread problems it causes, and a probing analysis of the culture at large.

Book Summary:

In Kids These Days, early Wall Street occupier Malcolm Harris gets real about why the Millennial generation has been wrongly stereotyped, and dares us to confront and take charge of the consequences now that we are grown up. Millennials have been stereotyped as lazy, entitled, narcissistic, and immature. We've gotten so used to sloppy generational analysis filled with dumb clichés about young people that we've lost sight of what really unites Millennials. Namely: We are the most educated and hardworking generation in American history. We poured historic and insane amounts of time and money into preparing ourselves for the 21st-century labor market. We have been taught to consider working for free (homework, internships) a privilege for our own benefit. We are poorer, more medicated, and more precariously employed than our parents, grandparents, even our great grandparents, with less of a social safety net to boot. Kids These Days is about why. In brilliant, crackling prose, early Wall Street occupier Malcolm Harris gets mercilessly real about our maligned birth cohort. Examining trends like runaway student debt, the rise of the intern, mass incarceration, social media, and more, Harris gives us a portrait of what it means to be young in America today that will wake you up and piss you off. Millennials were the first generation raised explicitly as investments, Harris argues, and in Kids These Days he dares us to confront and take charge of the consequences now that we are grown up.

Book Summary:

My name is Jaquelle, and I'm a teenager. I like football movies, sushi, and dark chocolate. But the biggest, most crucial, most significant thing about me is that my life’s task is to follow Jesus. He is the One who changed my life. That’s what this book is about. It’s for teenagers eager to reject the status quo and low standards our culture sets for us. It’s for those of us who don’t want to spend the adolescent years slacking off, but rather standing out and digging deep into what Jesus says about following him. This book will help you see how the truth about God changes everything—our relationships, our time, our sin, our habits, and more—freeing us to live joyful, obedient, and Christ-exalting lives, even while we’re young.

Book Summary:

A gargantuan, mind-altering comedy about the Pursuit of Happiness in America Set in an addicts' halfway house and a tennis academy, and featuring the most endearingly screwed-up family to come along in recent fiction, Infinite Jest explores essential questions about what entertainment is and why it has come to so dominate our lives; about how our desire for entertainment affects our need to connect with other people; and about what the pleasures we choose say about who we are. Equal parts philosophical quest and screwball comedy, Infinite Jest bends every rule of fiction without sacrificing for a moment its own entertainment value. It is an exuberant, uniquely American exploration of the passions that make us human - and one of those rare books that renew the idea of what a novel can do. "The next step in fiction...Edgy, accurate, and darkly witty...Think Beckett, think Pynchon, think Gaddis. Think." --Sven Birkerts, The Atlantic

Book Summary:

A prize-winning, illustrated novel in verse about a young girl who dreams of being an artist, inspired by the life of Swedish artist Berta Hansson. What do you do when it feels impossible to live up to everything expected of you? When the only person who understands you disappears? When you are young and long for something that seems out of reach? Berta dreams of being an artist, but as a girl growing up in a small Swedish farming village in the 1920s, she has little hope. She finds solace in nature, and in drawing and shaping birds from clay for her mother, the only person who seems to truly understand her. When her mother succumbs to tuberculosis, Berta feels alone, in despair and even more burdened by all the work on the farm. Can she find the courage to defy her father and the social conventions of her time, and fly free? This beautifully illustrated novel in verse, inspired by the paintings, letters and diaries of Swedish artist Berta Hansson (1910-1994), is a universal story of grief, longing and following your dreams.

Book Summary:

Understanding how a child's faith forms is crucial to knowing how adults can most significantly enhance the child's spiritual development. This book provides parents, teachers, and Christian education leaders with valuable insights into spiritual formation during childhood. With a biblical perspective as a starting point and a recognition of the crucial role of both the family and the faith community, Stonehouse reviews important contributions from noted child development experts Erik Erikson, Jean Piaget, Lawrence Kohlberg, and James Fowler. This overview gives insight into the processes of psychosocial, cognitive, and moral development in children and adolescents. Stonehouse concludes with solid guidelines for designing children's ministries. By carefully "setting the stage" through liturgy, sacred stories, and parables, Christian educators can help children meet with God. Quiet times of "godly play," carefully adapted to the age level of the child, enable adults to join with children on the journey toward deeper intimacy with God.

Book Summary:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 1,7, Universität zu Köln (Institut für deutsche Sprache und Literatur), Veranstaltung: Einführungsseminar B: Heinrich von Kleist, 16 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die vorliegende Hausarbeit analysiert die moralischen und rechtlichen Legitimisierungsversuche der Gewalt des Protagonisten in Heinrich von Kleists Novelle „Michael Kohlhaas“. Die Hauptfigur der Geschichte sei hierbei anzusehen als die Symbiose der historischen Person Hans Kohlhase mit zentralen Reflektionen Kleists. Der Autor leistet es, die konkret geschichtliche Vorlage mit der rechts- und moralphilosophischen Diskussion seiner Zeit zu verknüpfen, verleiht Michael Kohlhaas so eine Tiefenschärfe und lässt den Protagonisten als komplexes, reflektierendes Individuum entstehen. In dieser Arbeit werden das Leben des Michael Kohlhaas, das Unrecht an ihm, die gewalttätige Reaktion und sein endgültiges Verhängnis mit der Rechts- und Moralauffassung der Hauptfigur verglichen. Eine zentrale Fragestellung ist hierbei, ob und in wie weit Selbsthilfe und Widerstand bei staatlichem Versagen (moralisch) rechtens sind. Eine Analyse der Stellungnahme des Autors zu seinem Werk oder Angaben darüber, wie er den Erzähler über seinen Protagonisten werten lässt, wird diese Hausarbeit auf Grund der Fülle der Informationeninnerhalbder Hauptfigur nicht leisten. Eine formale Untersuchung leistet diese Hausarbeit ebenfalls nicht, da die inhaltlichen Aspekte und die Frage nach ihrer Anwendbarkeit auf die Diskussionen zur Zeit Kleists klar im Mittelpunkt stehen. Obwohl diese Arbeit Michael Kohlhaas als individuelles Subjekt behandelt, wird das Hauptaugenmerk auf seinen objektiven, universalisierbaren Anspruch gelenkt. Eine Diskussion seiner ausschließlich subjektiven, triebleidenschaftlichen Rachenatur kann nur marginal vorgenommen werden. Die sogenannte Kapselepisode (für das Rachemotiv ein wichtiger Aspekt) wird so etwa auch nur dann zur Sprache gebracht, wenn sie einen Einblick in die objektive Reflektion der Hauptperson bietet.

Book Summary:

The Industrial Revolution, powered by oil and other fossil fuels, is spiraling into a dangerous endgame. The price of gas and food are climbing, unemployment remains high, the housing market has tanked, consumer and government debt is soaring, and the recovery is slowing. Facing the prospect of a second collapse of the global economy, humanity is desperate for a sustainable economic game plan to take us into the future. Here, Jeremy Rifkin explores how Internet technology and renewable energy are merging to create a powerful "Third Industrial Revolution." He asks us to imagine hundreds of millions of people producing their own green energy in their homes, offices, and factories, and sharing it with each other in an "energy internet," just like we now create and share information online. Rifkin describes how the five-pillars of the Third Industrial Revolution will create thousands of businesses, millions of jobs, and usher in a fundamental reordering of human relationships, from hierarchical to lateral power, that will impact the way we conduct commerce, govern society, educate our children, and engage in civic life. Rifkin's vision is already gaining traction in the international community. The European Union Parliament has issued a formal declaration calling for its implementation, and other nations in Asia, Africa, and the Americas, are quickly preparing their own initiatives for transitioning into the new economic paradigm. The Third Industrial Revolution is an insider's account of the next great economic era, including a look into the personalities and players — heads of state, global CEOs, social entrepreneurs, and NGOs — who are pioneering its implementation around the world.

Book Summary:

An astonishing tale of Wall Street and the explosion of new life-science technologies and other industries of the future as told by one of the most creative dealmakers of the past 60 years. When Fred Frank arrived on Wall Street in 1958, he became a key member of a small, whip-smart cadre of young financiers who began challenging the stodgy, risk-averse scions of old-world investment banking. He also became the first banker to specialize in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and health care services. Frank’s perpetual search for the new—pioneering technologies and innovative business models—has transformed our world. A Philosopher on Wall Street is an intriguing tale of • a man who was a force of verve and ingenuity on Wall Street, who built and nurtured new industries that have impacted everyone; • Wall Street and its history since the late 1950s, the surprisingly fascinating story of how high technology in America was capitalized, and the formation and meteoric rise of the pharma and biotech industries; • the best and worst of Wall Street over the past sixty years, and thoughts about the future of how to fund innovation to benefit both people and the bottom line • colorful stories from top innovators, scientists, executives, and investors about deals, intrigue, genius, booms and busts. ​This is the story of one of the most creative dealmakers of the past sixty years, a master artist of finance whose erudition and grace helped shape our world, who has always believed that inspired science, entrepreneurship, and investing are the keys to a better future.
