Free sample

 What the World Needs to Know about Interfaith Dialogue, Second Edition is a non-fiction handbook and guide for the increasing numbers of people who are becoming involved with interfaith dialogue.
Written in an accessible style, the work explains how to overcome basic differences and yet ensure the longevity and productivity of an interfaith dialogue group.  So many dialogue groups grind to a halt because of group politics, differences in approach, and no sense of what the group should do beyond talking.  What the World Needs to Know about Interfaith Dialogue addresses all of these issues based on author Richard M. Landau’s observations of both failed and successful interfaith dialogue groups over the past 30 years.

Readers will come away with a knowledge of the tools required to start and conduct successful interfaith or inter-denominational dialogue.  It will aid the reader to build bridges of understanding, resolve conflicts, and identify problems before they develop.

Four undocumented Mexican American students, two great teachers, one robot-building contest . . . and a major motion picture

In 2004, four Latino teenagers arrived at the Marine Advanced Technology Education Robotics Competition at the University of California, Santa Barbara. They were born in Mexico but raised in Phoenix, Arizona, where they attended an underfunded public high school. No one had ever suggested to Oscar, Cristian, Luis, or Lorenzo that they might amount to much—but two inspiring science teachers had convinced these impoverished, undocumented kids from the desert who had never even seen the ocean that they should try to build an underwater robot.
And build a robot they did. Their robot wasn't pretty, especially compared to those of the competition. They were going up against some of the best collegiate engineers in the country, including a team from MIT backed by a $10,000 grant from ExxonMobil. The Phoenix teenagers had scraped together less than $1,000 and built their robot out of scavenged parts. This was never a level competition—and yet, against all odds . . . they won!
But this is just the beginning for these four, whose story—which became a key inspiration to the DREAMers movement—will go on to include first-generation college graduations, deportation, bean-picking in Mexico, and service in Afghanistan.
Joshua Davis's Spare Parts is a story about overcoming insurmountable odds and four young men who proved they were among the most patriotic and talented Americans in this country—even as the country tried to kick them out.
