With the clarity and depth characteristic of the classics, this spiritual bestseller lays out a perceptive and insightful plan for living a spiritual life and achieving the ultimate goal of that life -- union with God. Nouwen views our spiritual "ascent" as evolving in three movements. The first, from loneliness to solitude, focuses on the spiritual life as it relates to the experience of our own selves. The second, from hostility to hospitality, deals with our spiritual life as a life for others. The final movement, from illusion to prayer, offers penetrating thoughts on the most mysterious relationship of all: our relationship to God. Throughout, Nouwen emphasizes that the more we understand (and not simply deny) our inner struggles, the more fully we will be able to embrace a prayerful and genuine life that is also open to others' needs. Reaching Out is a rich book to be read, reread, pondered, and shared with others. "It does not offers answers or solutions," Nouwen cautions, "but is written in the conviction that the quest for an authentic Christian spirituality is worth the effort and the pain, since in the midst of this quest we can find signs offering hope, courage, and confidence."

From the perspective of the young adult he was then, Francisco Jiménez describes the challenges he faced in his efforts to continue his education. During his college years, the very family solidarity that allowed Francisco to survive as a child is tested. Not only must he leave his family behind when he goes to Santa Clara University, but while Francisco is there, his father abandons the family and returns to Mexico. This is the story of how Francisco coped with poverty, with his guilt over leaving his family financially strapped, with his self-doubt about succeeding academically, and with separation. Once again his telling is honest, true, and inspiring.

With everything we taught our children as they were growing up, we will probably see history repeat itself all over again. A happy child who eventually weds and has children of their own will no doubt raise their children the way they were raised. Times will of course change things, but the love will never change. Time and technology, no matter how great, can never change ones heart.

"The authors (1) present new indicators of banking sector penetration across 99 countries based on a survey of bank regulatory authorities, (2) show that these indicators predict household and firm use of banking services, (3) explore the association between the outreach indicators and measures of financial, institutional, and infrastructure development across countries, and (4) relate these banking outreach indicators to measures of firms' financing constraints. In particular, they find that greater outreach is correlated with standard measures of financial development, as well as with economic activity. Controlling for these factors, the authors find that better communication and transport infrastructure and better governance are also associated with greater outreach. Government ownership of financial institutions translates into lower access, while more concentrated banking systems are associated with greater outreach. Finally, firms in countries with higher branch and ATM penetration and higher use of loan services report lower financing obstacles, thus linking banking sector outreach to the alleviation of firms' financing constraints.

Reaching Out is an enriching and inspirational narrative covering Rainette’s experience in the United States Peace Corps. It also covers a brief, but exciting period while working for American Bell International, Tehran, Iran as a Personnel Recruiter. Her position in Iran was curtailed by an evacuation from that country in 1979, due to serious government uprisings. Her first Peace Corps assignment was in Kenya, East Africa. Here she was instrumental in establishing a secretarial school for young women. She was principal of the school, and also taught secretarial studies. Her second Peace Corps venture describes her work as a teacher in Sierra Leone, West Africa. This too was cut short due to civil rebellions, and also forced an evacuation from that country in 1991. In spite of these obstacles, Rainette made significant contributions to the people of Africa and has continued to maintain a strong bond with them.
