Whether in churches, not-for-profit ministries or in business the need for sound leadership is readily apparent.

There's Magic in the Wilds. Maggie O’Shea expected the worst when her family relocated from the lively beaches of Boca Raton to the secluded forests of the Ozark Mountains. What she didn’t expect was a new beginning – one full of Fae, magical powers, dangerous physical and mental trials, and two surprisingly gorgeous young men. These aren’t the fairies you’re familiar with, but dangerous superpowers embroiled in an enduring struggle among themselves over the fate of all humanity. Some want to protect us, and others would love nothing more than to see us, and especially fifteen-year-old Maggie, dead and buried. Now, torn between her new duties as Steward of the most sacred Fae land and her burgeoning love for Gavin, a powerful Fae, Maggie must fight to protect her family, her friends, herself, and the fate of the entire world. Join Maggie as she learns that fairy lore is not as far from the truth as she had believed, but neither is it anything like the tales in books or movies. As she navigates the treacherous schemes of the Fae, Maggie must become a quick study if she hopes to protect the lives of many, and possibly all, people from the insidious plot the Unseelie Fae have planned for centuries. The Steward is the first book in the exciting and magical four part series: the Weald Fae Journals by Christopher Shields.

The biblical image of the steward is highly provocative and even revolutionary. In recent years, environmentalists and peace marchers have been discovering the radical potential of the stewardship motif, while the church, sadly, has muffled this symbol's power in ecclesiastical wrappings. So writes Douglas John Hall in the first edition of 'The Steward' (1982). This provocative book has been so much in demand all over the world that Hall has completely rewritten, revised, and expanded his work, adding new material and deleting dated references. Yet Hall has kept his original book's basic format the same in this new and improved edition. In short, Hall aims to recapture the most basic meaning of the biblical metaphor of the 'steward' and to apply that meaning to our social context, one in which human beings are confused and ambivalent about their place and vocation in a threatened world. Working from numerous angles - biblical, historical, sociological, theological, and ecclesiastical - Hall explores the rich meaning and implications of stewardship. Scripture portrays the steward as a caretaker and servant. Hall compares scriptural teaching on stewardship - concentrated in Jesus' parables - with the role of stewardship in the church's history, maintaining that ever since the fourth century, the church's understanding and practice of stewardship have been distorted by its alliance with institutional power. Hall also puts forth apocalyptic warnings about the fate of the earth unless we heed the call to be stewards of the creation, work for world peace and justice, and nurture life in its many forms. The church around the world, says Hall, urgently needs to live as 'steward' - it is a matter of death and life.
Most approaches to nonprofit organizational leadership are borrowed from the for-profit sector. But these models are often inadequate to address the issues nonprofit leaders face. We need a new framework for nonprofit management that is rooted in historical precedent and biblical principles yet is also appropriate for the nonprofit context. Nonprofit consultant and researcher Kent Wilson presents a comprehensive model for steward leadership, in which leaders act as stewards or trustees, never as owners. Scripture and history give concrete examples of stewards who manage resources on behalf of others for the good of others. Wilson applies this classical understanding of the steward to modern organizational management, defining and developing steward leadership as an alternative to its cousin, servant leadership. Steward leadership offers great hope for the transformation and effectiveness of nonprofit leadership for stakeholders, board members, executive directors and staff members. Designed by a nonprofit leader for nonprofit leaders, this fresh approach to leadership gives you a new focus to lead your organization with excellence.

REMEMBER ME: LETTERS HOME FROM A HOSPITAL STEWARD DURING THE CIVIL WAR, 1862-1864, DANIEL McKINLEY MARTIN, 2010 by Alan I. West. Daniel Martin was working as a druggist's clerk in Pittsburgh at the outbreak of the Civil War, and in the spring of 1862 he traveled to Wheeling to join a regiment with friends and neighbors from the Pittsburgh area. Leaving behind his young family, Daniel spent much of the war engaged in actions throughout West Virginia. Two hundred, thirty of his letters, his 1863 diary and a number of his possessions have survived. Daniel¿s voice provides original and important material on nineteenth century diseases, injuries and death, medicine, and the fight to control the rugged and independently-minded western Virginia. There have been numerous collections of letters published about the Civil War, but few from hospital stewards. Accompanied by well-researched descriptions of diseases, medical theories, the roles of hospital stewards, and the political and social venue of southwestern Pennsylvania, the reader is able to view these letters in the context within which they were written. Daniel never achieved fame or fortune during his lifetime; however, his letters are rich with the day-to-day fears, tribulations and triumphs of a hospital steward during the Civil War, a time when medicine was in its infancy, germ theory was unknown, but efforts to save lives were heroic. Daniel speaks of financial hardships, secessionist, medicine, diseases, generals, patriotism, the deaths of his two brothers in battle, his fellow soldiers and medical officers, battles, politics, slavery, religion, and family squabbles. This book will be of interest to anyone fascinated with life during the 1860s, the Civil War, the history of medicine, the history of Pittsburgh, Chambersburg, and their environs, and West Virginia, from where most of the letters were written. It is also a nineteenth century love story between Daniel and his beloved Annie, who still remain together for eternity in a Philadelphia cemetery. 342 pages, 7 x 10 Soft cover with extensive index
