A deeply resonant memoir for anyone who has loved and lost, from acclaimed poet and Pulitzer Prize finalist Elizabeth Alexander. In The Light of the World, Elizabeth Alexander finds herself at an existential crossroads after the sudden death of her husband. Channeling her poetic sensibilities into a rich, lucid price, Alexander tells a love story that is, itself, a story of loss. As she reflects on the beauty of her married life, the trauma resulting from her husband's death, and the solace found in caring for her two teenage sons, Alexander universalizes a very personal quest for meaning and acceptance in the wake of loss. The Light of the World is at once an endlessly compelling memoir and a deeply felt meditation on the blessings of love, family, art, and community. It is also a lyrical celebration of a life well-lived and a paean to the priceless gift of human companionship. For those who have loved and lost, or for anyone who cares what matters most, The Light of the World is required reading.

Never has a Pope, in a book-length interview, dealt so directly with such wide-ranging and controversial issues as Pope Benedict XVI does in Light of the World. Taken from a recent week-long series of interviews with veteran journalist Peter Seewald, this book tackles head-on some of the greatest issues facing the world of our time. Seewald poses such forthright questions to Pope Benedict as:

  • What caused the clergy sexual abuse in the Catholic Church?
  • Was there a "cover up"?
  • Have you considered resigning?
  • Does affirming the goodness of the human body mean a plea for "better sex"?
  • Can there be a genuine dialogue with Islam?
  • Should the Church rethink Catholic teaching on priestly celibacy, women priests, contraception, and same-sex relationships?
  • Holy Communion for divorced-and-remarried Catholics?
  • Is there a schism in the Catholic Church?
  • Should there be a Third Vatican Council?
  • Is there any hope for Christian unity?
  • Is Christianity the only truth?
  • Can the Pope really speak for Jesus Christ?
  • How can the Pope claim to be "infallible"?
  • Is there a "dictatorship of relativism" today?

Twice before these two men held wide-ranging discussions, which became the best-selling books Salt of the Earth and God and the World. Then, Seewald's discussion partner was Joseph Ratzinger, head of the Vatican's chief doctrinal office. Now, Joseph Ratzinger is Pope Benedict XVI, the spiritual leader of the world's over one billion Catholics. Though Seewald now interviews the Pope himself, the journalist "pulls no punches", posing some of the thorniest questions any Pope has had to address. Believers and unbelievers will be fascinated to hear Benedict's thoughtful, straightforward and thought-provoking replies. This is no stern preachment or ponderous theological tract, but a lively, fast-paced, challenging, even entertaining exchange.

Why can it be so hard to find good friends? How can we become better friends? What happens when conflict threatens to derail friendship?"Friending" is so easy on the surface level, but how do we really know who are friends are? God litters our lives with people who come alongside us. Not every friendship looks the same, feels the same, or lasts forever. Do we love the people He has placed in our lives? When we recognize Christ's love in our reflection, it begin flows through us and into our relationships. By tuning into His voice above all others, we are free to embrace the broad scope of people God has brought into our lives. Jesus lofted love above all else in His friendships, and I believe He challenges us to do the same. "Friends with Everyone" challenges us to see and love people as He does, and to embrace friendship with fresh perspective. When we love each other for who we are, the genuine and authentic friendships we crave enrich our lives with a renewed sense of community.

Ye are the light of the world. A city thatis set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put itunder a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto allthat are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.--Matthew 5:14-16President Harold B. Lee was recognized by church members as a dynamic speaker whose love for and understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ was always evident in his actions and words. Ye Are the Light of the World, a companion volume to Stand Ye in Holy Places, brings together more of the powerful sermons and writings of this prophet of God. He speaks about the power of example and the need for the saints to be united in their faith, to do the right things for the right reasons, to always be a light and example to the world. He talks about love, family and the home, with special messages to youth to guide them in their dating and courtship. He gives commonsense advice for parents with special emphasis on keeping the family together through regular family home evenings. He speaks of all aspects of life for active church members, finally bearing powerful testimony to the divinity of the Savior and continuing revelation in the latter days.
