As children, we dream of someday being a superhero or an astronaut, a parent or a business owner, an actress or a sports star. The more outrageous the dream, the more sure we are that it will happen! Yet as we mature, hardships, hurts, and failures chip away at our dreams. Our past longings can seem like the naive wishes of childhood instead of the foundation of the life we were meant to live. In It’s Not Over, pastor Joshua Gagnon, founder of the Next Level Church network, reminds us that we were born to dream—and to dream big. In fact, our dreams have the power to shape our lives. Join Joshua in discovering the answers to these questions and many more: How does dreaming help you discover your purpose? How do you identify whether a dream is even worth chasing? How do you overcome resistance, criticism, and doubt? How do you pray bold prayers when you don’t feel like praying at all? How do you finish strong on the journey toward your dream? If you find yourself minimizing your dreams or feeling defeated by inner or outer resistance, there is good news: it’s not over! As long as you have breath in your lungs, God has a dream for you to chase. It’s what you were created for. And you can start today.

From the renowned authority on domestic violence, a startlingly original inquiry into the aftermath of wars and their impact on the least visible victims: women In 2007, the International Rescue Committee, which brings relief to countries in the wake of war, wanted to understand what really happened to women in war zones. Answers came through the point and click of a digital camera. On behalf of the IRC, Ann Jones spent two years traveling through Africa, East Asia, and the Middle East, giving cameras to women who had no other means of telling the world what war had done to their lives. The photography project—which moved from Liberia to Syria and points in between—quickly broadened to encompass the full consequences of modern warfare for the most vulnerable. Even after the definitive moments of military victory, women and children remain blighted by injury and displacement and are the most affected by the destruction of communities and social institutions. And along with peace often comes worsening violence against women, both domestic and sexual. Dramatic and compelling, animated by the voices of brave and resourceful women, War Is Not Over When It's Over shines a powerful light on a phenomenon that has long been cast in shadow.
