    Synopsis
    ¿Cómo educar en un mundo frenético e hiperexigente? ¿Cómo conseguir que un niño, y luego un adolescente, actúe con ilusión, sea capaz de estar quieto observando con calma lo que le rodea, piense antes de actuar, y esté motivado para aprender sin miedo al esfuerzo? Los niños de los últimos veinte años viven en un entorno cada vez más frenético y exigente, que por un lado ha hecho la tarea de educar más compleja, y por otro, los ha alejado de lo esencial. Vemos necesario para su futuro éxito programarlos para un sinfín de actividades que, poco a poco, les están apartando del ocio de siempre, del juego libre, de la naturaleza, del silencio, de la belleza. Su vida se ha convertido en una verdadera carrera para quemar etapas, lo que les aleja cada vez más de su propia naturaleza, de su inocencia, de sus ritmos, y de su sentido del misterio. Muchos niños se están perdiendo lo mejor de la vida: descubrir el mundo, adentrarse en la realidad. Un ruido ensordecedor acalla sus preguntas, las estridentes pantallas interrumpen el aprendizaje lento de todo lo maravilloso que hay que descubrir por primera vez. Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

    Synopsis
    This classic work of spirituality from the author of A Wrinkle in Time offers life-transforming insights on the rich heritage of the Bible and shows how the characters of this ancient text are relevant for living the good life now. In the first book of her Genesis Trilogy, beloved author Madeleine L’Engle casts long, loving, and perceptive glances not only at the created universe but also at its Creator. L’Engle often crafted stories that dealt with the complexities of the universe, navigating time and space, religion and science, with uncanny ease and insight. This skill—most famously demonstrated in A Wrinkle in Time—is showcased in this nonfiction work, And It Was Good, through her ability to see the connection between Made and Maker at every level. She examines the vast beauty, order, and complexity of our world with enthusiasm and reverence, illuminating the characteristics of God, the first poet. Madeleine L’Engle possesses the same ambidextrous skill of storytelling as other literary giants, including C.S. Lewis and George MacDonald. Her fictional stories appeal to generations of readers, and are equally embraced in both the secular and religious markets. But it is her ability in her nonfiction to engage with the historical text of the Bible through a dynamic unpacking of protagonists, antagonists, and matters of faith that establishes The Genesis Trilogy as a highly treasured collection of spiritual writings. And It Was Good beautifully approaches both the biblical text and creation itself with an intelligence and sensitivity that appeals to all seekers looking for a fresh communion with God in the natural world.

With a foreword by John Tesh, L’Engle invites us on a spiritual adventure that leads to hope, joy, and a closer relationship with Jesus. “Christmas,” says Madeleine L’Engle, “should be a time of awed silence.” If you’re looking for a unique and Christ-centered Christmas meditation, Bright Evening Star will be a rich and delightful discovery—year round! “In this warm and welcoming book Madeleine L’Engle steers us away from the sterile, intellectual approach of Christian scholars and unravels God’s entrance into this world with stories and personal reflections. She tosses aside the hat of a theologian and adorns herself in the flowing robes of a host, beckoning us to explore with her the Incarnation of Jesus Christ.” –from the foreword by John Tesh, recording artist and musician

    Synopsis
    The beloved author of A Wrinkle in Time takes an introspective look at her life and muses on creativity in this memoir, the first of her Crosswicks Journals. Every so often I need OUT.... My special place is a small brook in a green glade, a circle of quiet from which there is no visible sign of human beings.... I sit there, dangling my legs and looking through the foliage at the sky reflected in the water, and things slowly come back into perspective. Set against the lush backdrop of Crosswicks, her family’s farmhouse in rural Connecticut, this deeply personal memoir details Madeleine L’Engle’s journey to find balance between her career as a Newbery Medal-winning author and her responsibilities as a wife, mother, teacher, and Christian. As she considers the roles that creativity, family, citizenship, and faith play in her life, L’Engle reveals the complexities behind the author whose works—honored with the National Book Award, the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award, and countless other prizes—have long been cherished by children and adults alike. Written in simple, profound, and often humorous prose, A Circle of Quiet is an insightful woman’s elegant search for the meaning and purpose of her life.

    A novel about the darker side of love by the bestselling author of A Wrinkle in Time and the Crosswicks Journals. From the moment Henry Porcher first sees Ilsa Brandes, he worships her.
