The Smell of War: Lessons from the Battlefield

by Roland Bartetzko

Roland Bartetzko is a former soldier with the German Army, the Kosovo Liberation Army, and Croatian Defense Council and took part in extensive engagements during the conflicts in the Balkans.

These are his memories of dangerous, deadly, and sometimes funny times. It is the true story of what the war was like in Bosnia and in Kosovo.
“The Smell of War” invites us on a tour that starts on a hot summer day in the city of Mostar at the height of the Bosnian war and ends in a small valley in Kosovo when the Serbian forces start their withdrawal.
In between the pages, we learn about the fighting which took place, but also about the different people that were involved, their hopes and their troubles: civilians, refugees, children, reporters, criminals and sometimes lunatics.
There are stories about death and the evil things humans do to one another, but also funny and heartwarming ones, about simple people with true courage who resisted and fought for a just cause.

Unlike many other â??memoirs’ about war, Bartetzko doesn’t paint a heroic image of himself and his brothers in arms: they are sometimes scared, make a ton of mistakes, and things do not always end well.
A story can be very interesting, but if we don’t draw the right lessons from it, it’s just a story and nothing more. Therefore, at the end of many chapters, Bartetzko gives advice. His â??lessons’ are practical tips for everyone who wants to know how to survive in a war zone or how to stay calm and manage stress in extreme situations.
The “Smell of War” is an amazing and true story. It is a tribute to the real soldiers who are fighting our battles and the brave civilians who selflessly help them.

Stage Direction: Stories from a Passion Play

by Rachel Kerr

Would God assign big kingdom work to a regular guy?

God showed Phill Stumpf a revolutionary passion play would happen on the open streets of Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, his hometown. Phill believed for ten long years until amateur actors from every church in town joined him to create this major production from scratch.

But were they in over their heads? When they faced serious illness, legal issues, and the rejection of their performance permit for the date already advertised, they began to question. Were they caught up in God’s grand plans, or just mistaken?

Nothing builds faith like real-life stories. Stage Direction will encourage you: God has been leading his people since before the cross…and the drama isn’t done unfolding.

The Anxiety of Freedom: Imagination and Individuality in Locke’s Political Thought

by Uday Singh Mehta

The enduring appeal of liberalism lies in its commitment to the idea that human beings have a “natural” potential to live as free and equal individuals. The realization of this potential, however, is not a matter of nature, but requires that people be molded by a complex constellation of political and educational institutions. In this eloquent and provocative book, Uday Singh Mehta investigates in the major writings of John Locke the implications of this tension between individuals and the institutions that mold them. The process of molding, he demonstrates, involves an external conformity and an internal self-restraint that severely limit the scope of individuality.
Mehta explores the centrality of the human imagination in Locke’s thought, focusing on his obsession with the potential dangers of the cognitive realm. Underlying Locke’s fears regarding the excesses of the imagination is a political anxiety concerning how to limit their potential effects. In light of Locke’s views on education, Mehta concludes that the promise of liberation at the heart of liberalism is vitiated by its constraints on cognitive and political freedom.

Carlo Acutis, the Servant of God: Life beyond the Border

by Francesco Occhetta

In the face of death, the hope of every man is put to the test. When one is dealing with the illness and death of a young boy, one seems to oscillate on the edge of incomprehensibility. Yet there are testimonies that enter the darkness of the mind like a ray of light and warm the hearts of those who have ceased to hope. The life of Carlo Acutis is one of these rays of light. Indeed, it was the light of a lightning bolt on a summer’s night that overcame the darkness of fear and meaninglessness and permitted us to see what there truly is beyond the night of life.
