God came in the flesh to show us what love looks like. To truly see the dynamics of this love, we must take a close look at Jesus's relationships while he was here on earth. How he loved then is how he loves now, and how he loves now is how we as believers are to love. No Greater Love is a study of Jesus's interactions with people throughout the book of John, including Nicodemus, the woman at the well, and even the Pharisees. What did this love look like in action, especially with those who are hard to love? As it turns out, he didn't love people because they deserved it; he loved them because he is love. With the great tragedies in our culture today there is a need for this "Jesus love" that's available to all believers. May this book help you better know his love for you--which, in the end, will lead you to becoming more like him.

Love is the cornerstone of Christian values. How do we love our neighbor? If we truly love someone, we will avoid harming them and we will help them when they are in need. We will not cheat them, nor will use their mistakes for our gain. We will treat them with respect, cheer their good fortune, and pardon their shortcomings. Some of the people you will encounter in the stories herein share this belief. Others are less inclined or even indifferent.

This book gives testimonies of the exemplary life and death of Sister Felicitas Niyitegeka, the director of the Centre Saint-Pierre in Gisenyi, Rwanda. During the 1994 Genocide, she helped many Tutsi to escape by giving them shelter and helping to cross the border to Congo. Finally, when the militia arrived at her institute to kill all who had sought refuge, she voluntarily joined them into death, albeit having the choice - as a hutu and sister of an army colonel - to stay alive.
To abandoned child, Colin Stone, World War Two grants an escape from the mean streets of St. Kilda. A natural warrior, his talents qualify him to join an elite group of young men. The shining ones. Who fly Spitfires against Nazi tyranny. Rising with them, from the top Colin Stone looks down on a world that has doomed his first true friends. Bringing to vivid life true Australian war history and events, No Greater Love is a saga in the classic mold, featuring the drama, beauty, heroism and horror of one young man's war journey through stunning Malta, Egypt and North Africa, Sicily, England and Europe. It is a portrait of the once-in-a-lifetime characters the war places on his path, of the tragic, wholesale waste of war, on occasion even the profound humanity of his enemy, and of his evolving perception of his world for what it is. Though standing on its own as a ripping and also highly emotional read, No Greater Love is the third and final chapter of Justin Sheedy's now widely and warmly cherished World War Two novel trilogy begun with No Greater Love and Ghosts of the Empire. Continuing and now concluding their portrait of shining young men destined never to grow old, No Greater Love is the full and rich story of Part 1's reader-favourite character, Aussie rough diamond Colin Stone ('Stoney'). It is the story of his war, of his loyalty and devotion to his friends, of his enduring love for the mother who abandoned him, and his dreams of being held by her once again.
During 100 days in Spring 1994, Rwanda's descent into terror took an estimated 800,000 lives. The fastest-moving genocide in modern times was horrifying for its intimacy: Killers and victims were neighbors, friends, fellow churchgoers, workmates, even spouses. Murderers did their "work" with crude implements--machetes, hoes, nail-studded clubs--and lists of those doomed to die. This was the terrifying reality for Tharcisse Seminega, a Tutsi professor at the National University of Rwanda in Butare. He was specifically targeted for slaughter, along with his wife, Chantal, and five children, with all hope of escape cut off--until help arrived in the form of Hutu rescuers who repeatedly put themselves in mortal danger to save Seminega's family from the machetes. No Greater Love is the true story of unwavering courage and extraordinary love shown by ordinary people who offered a ray of hope during one of humanity's most horrific self-inflicted tragedies.
The "source book" on which the common life in Taize is based, this short volume is fundamental for understanding the vocation of Taize. It is presented like a letter that Brother Roger addresses personally to each reader, telling how in spite of discouragement and even doubt we can constantly find refreshment in returning again and again to the sources of faith. In the second part of the book, Brother Roger speaks particularly to the brothers of the community, recalling the essentials that make life together possible. In his own particular style, Taize's founder expresses himself in words that go straight to the heart. In page after page, he is careful not to write a single word that he has not first of all tried to live out himself.
Behind prison bars, Jose Martinez watches his fellow Republican comrades forced into a bullring and machine-gunned to death in the first days of the Spanish civil war. He wonders why his life was spared -- or are the victorious soldiers of the Nationalist Army preparing a fate even worse for him? Decades in the making, the political and religious clash between progressive and conservative Spaniards has turned deadly. Like all civil wars, this one tears apart Jose's family as well as the nation. Into the maelstrom comes sibling jealousy, disputes over beliefs, aggrieved betrayal, and simple lust -- all threatening the togetherness of a family. Added to this turmoil is the dying, innocent request of Jose's mother for him to make a spiritual pilgrimage for her to Santiago de Compostela -- but at what cost? While this story is a work of fiction, it reflects real events that happen to real people. The novel is intended for an American audience who share with the Spanish the memory of a civil war in their historical background. The cultural conflicts that gripped Spain three-quarters of a century ago find similar echoes in the present day political environment of the United States.
