In 1993 Greg Mortenson was the exhausted survivor of a failed attempt to ascend K2, an American climbing bum wandering emaciated and lost through Pakistan’s Karakoram Himalaya. After he was taken in and nursed back to health by the people of an impoverished Pakistani village, Mortenson promised to return one day and build them a school. From that rash, earnest promise grew one of the most incredible humanitarian campaigns of our time—Greg Mortenson’s one-man mission to counteract extremism by building schools, especially for girls, throughout the breeding ground of the Taliban.

'Here we drink three cups of tea to do business; the first you are a stranger, the second you become a friend, and the third, you join our family, and for our family we are prepared to do anything even die. Haji Ali, Korphe Village Chief, Karakoram mountains, Pakistan In 1993, after a terrifying and disastrous attempt to climb K2, a mountaineer called Greg Mortenson drifted, cold and dehydrated, into an impoverished Pakistan village in the Karakoram Mountains. Moved by the inhabitants' kindness, he promised to return and build a school. Three Cups of Tea is the story of that promise and its extraordinary outcome. Over the next decade Mortenson built not just one but fifty-five schools especially for girls in remote villages across the forbidding and breathtaking landscape of Pakistan and Afghanistan, just as the Taliban rose to power. His story is at once a riveting adventure and a testament to the power of the humanitarian spirit.

Dies ist die bewegende Geschichte des Höhenbergsteigers Greg Mortenson: Er scheiterte dramatisch am K2, wurde von Pakistanis gerettet und gesund gepflegt. Er verspricht, zurückzukehren und eine Schule für jene zu errichten, die in dieser so unwirtlichen Welt auf über 3000 Metern am meisten entbehren: die Kinder. Und er hält Wort. Seitdem widmet er sein Leben dem Aufbau von Schulen und Krankenhäusern in Pakistan und Afghanistan.

After Ann Walmsley was mugged near her house in Hampstead, she found she was unable to walk alone down the street and it shook her belief in the fundamental goodness of people. In Canada a few years later, when her friend Carol asked her to participate in a bold new venture in a men’s medium security prison, Ann had to weigh her curiosity and desire to be of service with her anxiety and fear. But she signed up and for eighteen months went to a remote building a few hours outside of Toronto, meeting a group of heavily tattooed book club members without the presence of guards or security cameras. There was no wine and cheese, plush furnishings, or superficial chat about jobs or recent vacations. But a book club on the inside proved to be a place to share ideas, learn about each other, and regain humanity. For the men, the books were rare prized possessions, and the meetings were an oasis of safety and a respite from isolation in an otherwise hostile environment. Having been judged themselves, they were quick to make judgments about the books they read. As they discussed the obstacles the characters faced, they revealed glimpses of their own struggles that were devastating and comic. From The Grapes of Wrath to The Cellist of Sarajevo, and Outliers to Infidel, the book discussions became a springboard for frank conversations about loss, anger, redemption, heroism and loneliness.

Around the world, thousands of grassroots movements are confronting issues like destruction of the environment, economic depression, human rights violations, religious fundamentalism, and war. This book tells the courageous story of one such group. Organizing in 1939, Northern Baptists formed the Baptist Pacifist Fellowship as part of the Fellowship of Reconciliation. Southern Baptists formed a parallel body. Like today, it was a time when sources of hope seemed hard to find. Discerning a need to support and connect Baptist conscientious objectors in the United States, members faced hostility in congregations and the nation. For the duration of the Second World War, the Korean War, war in Vietnam and elsewhere, Baptists sustained a witness for peace and justice. By 1984, threat of nuclear weapons led to formation of a wider circle of resistance to the culture of war. Subsequently, the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America has brought together Baptist peacemakers from around North America and the world. However small in numbers or reviled, members have been building a culture of peace through an interracial and international community. This book is an invaluable resource for those seeking a new world of forgiveness, respect for human rights, nonviolence, and peace.

Die Weltreise eines jungen Amerikaners endet unverhofft in einer Rettungsaktion für verschleppte Kinder in Nepal. Die packende Geschichte eines Mannes, der einfach nicht mehr wegschauen konnte. Auf seiner Weltreise macht Conor Grennan einen dreimonatigen freiwilligen Dienst in einem Waisenhaus in Nepal. Das, was er dort sieht und erlebt, verändert sein Leben. Er findet heraus, dass viele der Kinder in Wirklichkeit gar keine Waisen sind. Ihre Eltern hatten sie für viel Geld Vermittlern anvertraut, um ihnen in Kathmandu eine bessere Zukunft zu ermöglichen. Wer im Waisenhaus landet, hat noch Glück gehabt. Wer ihre Eltern sind oder woher sie kommen, wissen die Kinder nicht. Trotzdem versucht Grennan das schier Unmögliche: die Kinder wieder mit ihren Familien zusammenzubringen. Monatelang reist er dabei in die entlegendsten Teile Nepals, sucht Spuren, redet mit Menschen, zeigt Fotos der Kinder. Packend und ehrlich erzählt er, wie es sich anfühlt, wenn man plötzlich selber derjenige ist, der handelt und das Leben der anderen verändert.
