Uncommon


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The New York Times bestseller is now in softcover with a bonus chapter on how the “Dare to Be Uncommon” movement is reaching schools, teams, and families across the country and an update on Tony’s life since retiring as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. What does it take to live a life of significance? When Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy took home the trophy in Super Bowl XLI, fans around the world looked to him as the epitome of success. Athletic victory, professional excellence, fame and celebrity, awards and honors—he had it all. But even in that moment, he knew those achievements had little to do with his ultimate significance as a man. Coach Dungy still passionately believes that there is a different path to significance—a path characterized by attitudes, ambitions, and allegiances that are all too rare but uncommonly rewarding. In the New York Times best seller Uncommon, Dungy reveals secrets to achieving significance that he has learned from his remarkable parents, his athletic and coaching career, his mentors, and his walk with God.

Uncommon Providence


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Rich in the social upheaval of the communist revolution in Eastern Europe, Uncommon Providence is a first hand, journaled account of a young minister and his wife who dare to continue serving their community. Removed from their home in Southern Ukraine, the young minister is exiled to work in forced labor. His wife follows to live nearer him. After a year in hard labor, a harrowing escape from Stalins grip initiates an odyssey of survival under extreme circumstances. Taken from the handwritten and just recently translated journal of Jacob Dck, Uncommon Providence chronicles the incredible journey of a young couples escape in 1931 from Soviet Russia. With little more than an unwavering faith in Gods providence, Jacob, his wife Anna, and daughter make a dangerous border crossing into China. Walking hundreds of miles through the harshest and remotest of terrain, their trek across desert and mountain ranges, including the formidable Himalaya Mountains, finally ushers freedom for them in India. Uncommon Providence is a story of unquestioning love and devotion to faith and family. Despite all the odds]despite all the obstacles before them, social, political, and geographical, wondrously Jacob and Anna find a purposeful life of ministry in India. Uncommon Providence is a vivid narration from Jacobs handwritten journals, letters, and audiotapes of an epic journey. The bold escape is a powerful, true account matched with unusual courage and providential care. Born of missionary parents, Harold Dueck spent his childhood years in India. After graduating from Kodaikanal High School, he attended Tabor College in Kansas. Following graduation he and his new bride taught at an international school in Cali, Colombia. After completing graduate studies at Oregon State University, his young family settled in Los Gatos, California. Harold Dueck taught mathematics and computer science over a period of forty years. He and his wife presently reside in Auburn, California.

Uncommon Ground Rethinking The Human Place In Nature


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

A controversial, timely reassessment of the environmentalist agenda by outstanding historians, scientists, and critics. In a lead essay that powerfully states the broad argument of the book, William Cronon writes that the environmentalist goal of wilderness preservation is conceptually and politically wrongheaded. Among the ironies and entanglements resulting from this goal are the sale of nature in our malls through the Nature Company, and the disputes between working people and environmentalists over spotted owls and other objects of species preservation. The problem is that we haven't learned to live responsibly in nature. The environmentalist aim of legislating humans out of the wilderness is no solution. People, Cronon argues, are inextricably tied to nature, whether they live in cities or countryside. Rather than attempt to exclude humans, environmental advocates should help us learn to live in some sustainable relationship with nature. It is our home.

Impressive in scope and erudition, Christopher Knight's Uncommon Readers focuses on three critics whose voices - mixing eloquence with pugnacity - stand out as among the most notable independent critics working during the last half-century. The critics are Denis Donoghue, Frank Kermode, and George Steiner, and their independence - a striking characteristic in a time of corporate criticism - is reflective of both their backgrounds (Donoghue's Catholic upbringing in Protestant-ruled Northern Ireland; Kermode's Manx beginnings; and Steiner's Jewish upbringing in pre-Holocaust Europe) and their temperaments. Each represents a party of one, a fact that has, on the one hand, made them the object of the occasional vituperative dismissal and, on the other, contributed to their influence and remarkable longevity. Since the 1950s, Steiner, Donoghue, and Kermode have each maintained a highly public profile, regularly contributing to such influential publications as Encounter, New Yorker, New York Review of Books, Times Literary Supplement, and the London Review of Books. This aspect of their work receives particular attention in Uncommon Readers, for it illustrates a renewed interest in the role of the public critic, especially in relation to the genre of the literary-review essay, and signals a sustained conversation with an educated public - namely the common reader. Knight makes the argument for the review essay as a serious and still viable genre, and he examines the three critics in light of this assumption. He expounds upon the critics' separate interests - Kermode's identification with discussions of canonicity, Steiner's with cultural politics, and Donoghue's with the persistent claims of the imagination - while also revealing the ways in which their work often reflects theological interests. Lastly, he attempts to adjudicate some of the conflicts that have arisen between these critics and other literary theorists (especially the post-structuralists), and to discuss the question of whether it is still possible for critics to work independently. Original and deliberative, Uncommon Readers presents a renewed defense of the tradition of the common reader.

A human being isn’t a static organism, but dynamic. What we eat, feel, experience, and even our relation with, and interpretation of, our experiences, everything, influences our DNA. This said, we can’t predict changes in our future without precisely analyzing how we react to the situations presented before us. And these reactions start far before we’re born, with our mother. She’s the one that influences what we eat and feel before our birth. And so, by the time of birth, the baby has already suffered significant DNA changes that will affect his whole life. What we can do from that point on with our genetic code, consists in consciously altering it with our own habits and knowledge about the best way to deal with our decisions in life. And this is what this book proposes, a new slant on psychology, where what is known is presented here and explained in what regards using our potential for change and development.
