Human life. We marvel at its complexity, we wonder at its fragility, and as Catholics we embrace its dignity. But as far back as 1880, the Church has faced the reality that our culture often stands in opposition to God’s loving design for life, love, marriage, and family. In Life and Love: Opening Your Heart to God’s Design , Terry Polakovic takes us on a fascinating tour of eight Church documents, spanning nearly 140 years, that pertain to human life and love: Arcanum Divinae (On Christian Marriage), by Pope Leo XIII, 1880 Casti Connubii (Of Chaste Wedlock), by Pope Pius XI, 1930 Humanae Vitae (Of Human Life), by Pope Paul VI, 1968 Familiaris Consortio (On the Role of the Christian Family in the Modern World), by Pope John Paul II, 1981 Mulieris Dignitatem (On the Dignity and Vocation of Women), by John Paul II, 1988 Evangelium Vitae (The Gospel of Life), by John Paul II, 1995 Deus Caritas Est (God Is Love), by Pope Benedict XVI, 2005 Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love), by Pope Francis, 2016 Whether you’ve read these documents before or are discovering them for the first time, Life and Love will help you understand how the Church consistently and fearlessly offers the only true response to the battles of our time.

Texas prosecutors are powerful: in cases where they seek capital punishment, the defendant is sentenced to death over ninety percent of the time. When management professor Hans Hansen joined Texas’s newly formed death penalty defense team to rethink their approach, they faced almost insurmountable odds. Yet while Hansen was working with the office, they won seventy of seventy-one cases by changing the narrative for death penalty defense. To date, they have succeeded in preventing well over one hundred executions—demonstrating the importance of changing the narrative to change our world.In this book, Hansen offers readers a powerful model for creating significant organizational, social, and institutional change. He unpacks the lessons of the fight to change capital punishment in Texas—juxtaposing life-and-death decisions with the efforts to achieve a cultural shift at Uber. Hansen reveals how narratives shape our everyday lives and how we can construct new narratives to enact positive change. This narrative change model can be used to transform corporate cultures, improve public services, encourage innovation, craft a brand, or even develop your own leadership. Narrative Change provides an unparalleled window into an innovative model of change while telling powerful stories of a fight against injustice. It reminds us that what matters most for any organization, community, or person is the story we tell about ourselves—and the most effective way to shake things up is by changing the story.

Общая задача «аналоговых» псевдофилософов и попсовых массмедиа – превратить постмодерн в самую жуткую жуть, чтобы зафиксировать общество потребления с его иерархиями. Но они обречены. Их всех «угоризонталит» нигилистическая техносфера цифровой анархии. Кому постмодерн – война, а криптоанархистам – мать родна. Эта книга не для потерявшихся в гиперкоммуникации социальных множеств. Она для меньшинства «не-потребителей», выбирающих мышление и строящих собственный дискурс, который порождает феномены.
