Radical Islam is pursuing the souls of African American men. This book urges the African American community to wake up and take action now. According to author Carl F Ellis, Jr there are five pivotal questions African American Christians must ask and answer: What is Islam? Why has Islam developed so successfully in the African American community? How to protect our churches and communities from Islam's pursuit? How should the Christian community respond to Islam? What should be the Christian community's long-term goals? This is a direct examination of the issues and responds to these and other critical questions with facts, suggestions and ideas that will help readers begin to address Islam's ever-growing challenge to African American congregations and communities.

When Marita Golden decided to write her personal account of the challenges of raising a black son in today's world, she didn't intend to write more than her own faily's story. But through the story of raising her son against the backdrop of a racially divided society, Golden discovered she was also confronted the causes of the violence that surrounds African-American men. In the fierecely lryical and revealing narrative of Saving Our Sons, she has created a work of profound and lasting importance−one that sensitively and uniquely addresses the problems of boyhood and emerging manhood. It is a book that issues a clarion call: The survival of our cities, if not our society, depends on our finding a way to save our sons.

Jongens doen het in school niet zo goed. Een open deur intrappen lijkt het wel. Maar de auteur van dit boek vindt dat er nog niet genoeg aandacht is besteed aan de scholingsachterstand van Amerikaanse jongens. Meer meisjes dan jongens halen een universitair diploma. Tijdens de recente crisis waren het vooral laaggeschoolde mannen die hun job verloren. Kortom ook op de arbeidsmarkt doen vrouwen het beter. Hoog tijd om te onderzoeken wat de redenen zijn voor de desinteresse van jongens in het onderwijs. Bij het zoeken naar antwoorden kijkt de auteur ook naar voorbeelden en oplossingen in landen zoals het Verenigd Koninkrijk en Australië.

Selected as one of the Top 5 Educational Books by Literacy News The signs and statistics are undeniable: boys are falling behind in school. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the biggest culprits are not video games, pop culture, or female-dominated schools biased toward girls. The real problem is that boys have been thrust into a bewildering new school environment that demands high-level reading and writing skills long before they are capable of handling them. Lacking the ability to compete, boys fall farther and farther behind. Eventually, the problem gets pushed into college, where close to 60% of the graduates are women. In a time when even cops, construction foremen, and machine operators need post-high school degrees, that's a problem. Why Boys Fail takes a hard look at how this ominous reality came to be, how it has worsened in recent years, and why attempts to resolve it often devolve into finger-pointing and polarizing politics. But the book also shares some good news. Amidst the alarming proof of failure among boys-around the world-there are also inspiring case studies of schools where something is going right. Each has come up with realistic ways to make sure that every student-male and female-has the tools to succeed in school and later in life. Educators and parents alike will take heart in these promising developments, and heed the book's call to action-not only to demand solutions but also to help create them for their own students and children.

The devil tried fiercely to sabotage her marriage in its infancy stage (She has been married for 30 years). The Voodoo Doctor has only limited information on a child of God. The Palm Reader could see that Sarah would be tortured, but couldn’t see that Sarah’s God would help her, come in and be a light to her, and cause her to win. Sarah prayed to God for a husband with a specific request, God answered her through a dream, she met exactly the man she saw in the dream. Sarah was lied on, taken to jail and booked and returned to her hair salon in less than 30 minutes. The clients stay in the salon some under the dryer until she returned, by the police officers. Through Spiritual Warfare Sarah prevented a suicide demon for killing one of her sons. Sarah heard the voice of God throughout her mission, therefore she would not stop saving her sons for the traps of the enemy. Sarah turned into a strong woman of faith and courage through many challenges.

Michael Gurian's blockbuster bestseller The Wonder of Boys is the bible for mothers, fathers, and educators on how to understand and raise boys. It has sold over 400,000 copies, been translated into 17 languages, and sells over 25,000 every year, which is more than any other book on boys in history. To follow up on this first book, which launched the boy's movement, he has now written this revolutionary new book which confronts what he and a lot of other parents and teachers in this country truly believe to be a "boy's crisis". Here are the facts: Boys today are simply not learning as well as girls Boys receive 70% of the Ds and Fs given all students Boys cause 90% of classroom discipline problems 80% of all high school dropouts are boys Millions of American boys are on Ritalin and other mind-bending control drugs Only 40% of college students are boys And three out of four learning disabled students are boys So what can we do? Gurian has the answer in this enormously fascinating and practical book which shows parents and teachers how to help boys overcome their current classroom obstacles by helping to create the proper learning environment, understand how to help boys work with their unique natural gifts, nurture and expand every bit of their potential, and enabling them to succeed in life the way they ought to. Gurian presents a whole new way of solving the problem based on the success of his program in schools across the country, the latest research and application of neuro-biological research on how boys' brains actually work and how they can learn very well if they're properly taught. Anyone who cares about the future of our boys must read this book.

"Maggie is earthy and real, full of love and knowledge, especially on raising sons." - Steve Biddulph "Maggie's perspective on raising boys is spot on. She writes with humor and depth, providing insight and strategies for many of the most important issues facing moms. There is a lovely ease to her writing and a powerful honesty. I hope every mother of a son (and everyone else!) will read this book. The future of the world, to a great extent, depends on how we raise our boys." - Michael Gurian, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Wonder of Boys and Saving Our Sons If we can see the world through boys' eyes a little better, we will make different choices in the way we mother them… and we will find them less confusing, and love them more deeply. Mothers of sons are worried about raising their boys in a world where negative images of masculinity are front and centre of our media, almost every day. Not only that, but statistically our boys are still struggling in many ways. Even though we live in a time where we recognise that nothing in gender is fixed, it remains a fact that the influence of a mother on her son is massive. A mother of four sons herself, Maggie Dent draws on her personal experience - and over four decades work as a teacher, counsellor and now author and speaker - to help build understanding, empathy and compassion for our boys. Maggie shares her five key secrets that every mum needs to know and uses the voices of men she has worked with and surveyed to reveal what really matters in a boy's relationship with his mother and other mother figures. Maggie is one of Australia's most popular parenting authors and educators, and her seminars about boys have sold out all across Australia and in the UK. She is finally sharing her insights, her reflections, and (as always) her humour around mothering boys to help you be the mum your son needs you to be.
