We are conditioned to think love's purpose is to heal wounds, make us happy, and give our lives meaning. When the opposite occurs, and love causes us to feel fractured, disenchanted, and full of existential turmoil, our suffering is compounded by the sense that love has failed us, or that we've failed to experience what so many others effortlessly enjoy.In this eloquently argued, psychologically-informed book, Mari Ruti portrays love as a much more complex, multifaceted phenomenon prompting us to access the depths of human existence. Love's ruptures are as important as its triumph.

When we were children, Rachel and I traveled in dreams to worlds we'd seen only in words. We lived the passions of our printed heroes, especially those whose hearts were summoned and spent in Africa. With those true tales, God seeded a vision, planting us in vastly different fields where only He could be glorified for the harvest. This is His story and hers, told with the same compelling power that first stirred us. Honest about her humanity and earnest about the redeeming power of Jesus Christ, she compels you to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel what the summons of God means. Refreshing in her candor and humor, Rachel relates their family's journey from the couch to the culture of Zambia. She will engage you in experiences from the very funny "Tea Party with Aliens" to the agonizing funerals of pandemic death. Crack this book and it will draw you into the realities of another world and God's ability to effect change at home and abroad. I know. I've already been reading the book of Rachel's life for over fifty years, and I'm moved beyond words. Loving sister, Linda Mohler

The Summons of the Lord of Hosts brings together in one volume several major letters written by Baha'u'llah, Prophet and Founder of the Baha'i Faith. In these magnificent documents He invites the monarchs and leaders of His time to accept the basic tenets of His Faith, sets forth the nature of His mission, and establishes the standard of justice that must govern the rule of those entrusted with civil authority. Written between 1868 and 1870, leaders of the East and West are called upon to accept His teachings on the oneness of God, the unity of all religions, and the oneness of humanity. Among the leaders specifically addressed are Napoleon III, Czar Alexander II, Queen Victoria, Nasiri'd-Din Shah, and Pope Pius IX. The Summons of the Lord of Hosts is a vitally important resource for those interested in the scripture and history of the world's great religions.
