We live in a polarized time. Christians are quick to conceive of themselves either as theologically-minded or worship-minded; either thinking Christians or feeling Christians. The results are damaging: theology without worship is muted, stifled, and cold, and worship without theology is ungrounded, unrooted, and uninformed. This is not the way it was meant to be. Theology (our study and knowledge of God) should always lead to doxology (our worship of Him). Worship should always be rooted in theology. When we study the nature and character of God as revealed in his Word, we are invited to respond in the affectionate, obedient discipleship of worship. How can we keep our theology from being mere head knowledge? How do we give our worship roots that will last? By fixing our eyes on God Himself—the object of our study and the object of our worship. Fix Your Eyes is an invitation to understand core doctrines of the Christian faith and apply them in our daily worship of God. It walks believers through key theological concepts and shows how each can be lived out in daily life.

Max und Moritz erschien Ende Oktober 1865 und zählt zum Frühwerk von Wilhelm Busch. Viele Reime wie „Aber wehe, wehe, wehe! Wenn ich auf das Ende sehe!“, „Dieses war der erste Streich, doch der zweite folgt sogleich“ oder „Gott sei Dank! Nun ist’s vorbei mit der Übeltäterei!“ sind im Deutschen zu geflügelten Worten geworden. Mit dieser Bildergeschichte kritisierte Wilhelm Busch auch die Zustände seiner Zeit. Damals sind viele Eltern aufgrund ihrer Armut nach Amerika ausgewandert und ließen ihre Kinder zurück, die dann allein zurechtkommen mussten. Häufig gingen sie nicht zur Schule und mussten stehlen, um zu überleben. Die Geschichte wurde in über 300 Sprachen und Dialekte übertragen. Die erste englische Übersetzung von Charles Timothy Brooks erschien 1871. Max and Maurice appeared in October 1865 and is one of William Busch’s early works. Many rhymes have become winged words in German. With this picture story William Busch also criticized the conditions of his time. At that time many parents emigrated to America because of their poverty and left their children behind, who then had to manage on their own. Often they did not go to school and had to steal to survive. The story was translated into over 300 languages and dialects. The first English translation by Charles Timothy Brooks appeared in 1871.

“Harrowing, hopeful, and informed by Ramayan's own experiences as a runaway to Edmonton, Mud Lilies is a hymn to the power of one young woman's defiant spark of life, a story of grit and wisdom set against a backdrop of cruelty and indifference.” — Grace O’Connell, Open Book The night fourteen-year-old Chanie Nyrider ran away from her abusive parents, she was saved by an older woman who, after building a friendship with the teen, offers her a new life working as a prostitute.

At this time she is given two options: jail or a high school equivalency program for troubled youth.

As she begins to make strides in the program and meets friends who share similar circumstances, her home life, such as it is, deteriorates. Blue becomes unstable, deceitful, and eventually violent.

Road Kill fought another war, one that germinated deep inside his soul. This war was spawned by a quest he never fulfills. A “Quest for Freedom” …and in the end, as this Club looks back, many older members tell their younger Brothers, “It’s easy to see this was the most phenomenal period in our Club’s long history.”
