              Hollywood, while embracing creativity, seems to be shutting out morality and community. This book unpacks the spiritual principles underlying the art of film, including a historical survey of how cinematic art was shaped by the crisis of modernity. It goes a step beyond the popul...ar course of critiquing films from a Christian worldview.

              Ron Austin's love story is highly personal -- at times humorous as well as deeply touching -- yet it transcends the personal to illuminate the path ahead for Catholic-Jewish relationships. It is a Hollywood story in that it is set in the glamour capital in which Ron worked for ha...lf a century. Ron's story includes working with a variety of stars from Charlie Chaplin to the cast of Charlie's Angels. More than just a personal memoir, this book provides a penetrating inside look at how the media reflects and shapes our lives. Further, it is a profoundly spiritual work that probes the painful past while envisioning a promising future for the relationship between Christians and Jews, as long as they follow the example of Ron and his Jewish wife, Ruth -- and truly love one another.

              In a race against time to find a treasure hidden deep in the Cambodian jungle, biologist Dr. Alan Grace is seeking wild agarwood to help save an ailing people from a devastating disease. Alan has to first survive the jungle hunt and find the precious wood before he must try to sm...uggle it past crooked cops, Big Pharma, and the CIA, all of whom are hell-bent on stopping him and stealing his treasure, along with all his secrets.Exiled from his university and lured off his agarwood plantation, Alan must leave behind the safety of the lab and find new strength in the jungle and beyond, in order to prevail against his many adversaries. The wild agarwood treasure that Alan seeks comes from South Asian trees that yield an oil worth millions of dollars, and can be more dangerous than drugs or diamonds. Alan got hooked on agarwood as a child visiting a royal palace in a small country in the Arabian Gulf-where it is revered as oud and used in all types of fragrance and incense. Alan is the world's leading authority on agarwood and wrote the CITES chapter-the UN Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species-to protect the old-growth forests. Now the village near his plantation desperately needs money, and his childhood sweetheart is dying from a Gulf War disease. She and many others need a wild-agarwood-oil cure to live. Alan has a huge dilemma: Will he stick to his plan to improve plantation-grown agarwood to match the quality of wild agarwood, protect his reputation, and follow the CITES rules, or will he hunt for a forbidden treasure and try to smuggle it through dangerous circumstances to those in desperate need?
