Soon, though, their parents' perfect solution has become Danny and Elijah's nightmare as they're forced to spend countless hours together. But then Elijah meets Julia, and soon the brothers aren't together nearly as much. And when Julia suddenly decides that maybe it's Danny she's really interested in, Danny has a decision to make: does he honor his relationship with the brother he thinks hates him, or does he follow his heart, which sorely needs some repairing of its own?Elijah and Danny don’t think they have anything in common except their parents. Danny thinks Elijah is a lazy, slacking, clueless dreamer who doesn’t know how to make a living. Elijah thinks Danny is a workaholic, stuck-up, soulless drone who doesn’t know how to make a life. Yes, they’re brothers. Then their parents trick them into taking a trip to Italy together. Nine days of escape. Nine days of somewhere else. Elijah and Danny aren’t sure it’s going to work. Until they each meet a girl—the same girl. Julia. And nothing will ever be the same again. AN ALA BEST BOOK FOR YOUNG ADULTS From the Hardcover edition.

Tech giants and automakers have been teaching robots to drive. Robot-controlled cars have already logged millions of miles. These technological marvels promise cleaner air, smoother traffic, and tens of thousands of lives saved. But even if robots turn into responsible drivers, are we ready to be a nation of passengers? In Are We There Yet?, Dan Albert combines historical scholarship with personal narrative to explore how car culture has suffused America’s DNA. The plain, old-fashioned, human-driven car built our economy, won our wars, and shaped our democratic creed as it moved us about. Driver’s ed made teenagers into citizens; auto repair made boys into men. Crusades against the automobile are nothing new. Its arrival sparked battles over street space, pitting the masses against the millionaires who terrorized pedestrians. When the masses got cars of their own, they learned to love driving too. During World War II, Washington nationalized Detroit and postwar Americans embraced car and country as if they were one. Then came 1960s environmentalism and the energy crises of the 1970s. Many predicted, even welcomed, the death of the automobile. But many more rose to its defense. They embraced trucker culture and took to Citizen Band radios, demanding enough gas to keep their big boats afloat. Since the 1980s, the car culture has triumphed and we now drive more miles than ever before. Have we reached the end of the road this time? Fewer young people are learning to drive. Ride hailing is replacing car buying, and with electrification a long and noble tradition of amateur car repair—to say nothing of the visceral sound of gasoline exploding inside a big V8—will come to an end. When a robot takes over the driver’s seat, what’s to become of us? Are We There Yet? carries us from muddy tracks to superhighways, from horseless buggies to driverless electric vehicles. Like any good road trip, it’s an adventure so fun you don’t even notice how much you’ve learned along the way.

The Christian journey is the journey of a lifetime, but all journeys can become difficult. We start out strong, but the road gets long and arduous and the view gets a bit boring. Sometimes we set ourselves on cruise control or we've even slowed down to a crawl and it's hard to know how to get back on track. When we're at these difficult points, we see the various discipleship markers (like Bible reading, prayer, pastoral care and evangelism for example) and yet we find it so hard to engage with them. We want to stay on course and keep our eyes on Jesus, but in the chaos of our lives, how do we do that in practice? In reaction to these difficulties, we can take control of the journey ourselves by making a to-do list of our discipleship. While acknowledging that our salvation comes from grace and our strength comes from God, there are some things that we can do to persevere in our discipleship. Are We There Yet? aims to meet people where they really are and unpack these concepts so there is a lasting ability to replenish our stamina for the journey, without making our faith a to-do list.

Did you know God has a secret place? He does, and he wants you to learn the way into the secret place of the Most High. In "Are We There Yet?" Sarah Ramsey uncovers an ancient path in the Tabernacle of Moses that reveals the pattern into God's presence. Though the journey is simple, many people do not know how to get there. Let's make the journey together! It is simply not possible to take this journey incrementally and progressively and not 'get there'; our arrival being understood as a renewed sense and awareness of God's own manifested presence...After having read Sarah's book, the sense of the manifest presence of the Lord has increased in a way that I have long desired. Sarah really does take you there. Bob and Judith Mumford, International Bible teacher and author In a time when mankind has apparently lost his mooring to anything steadfast and absolute, "Are We There Yet?" comes along. Every Christian worker serious about their service for the gospel should add this foundational work to their library. Joe McGee, President Joe McGee Ministries Faith For Families Our hope and trust is that this in-depth examination of the pathway into the presence of God will inspire many to begin and complete this valuable journeya "and then to abide in His presence. Dick Leggatt, President Derek Prince Ministries Sarah has a contagious love for Christ and His presence and walks intimately with Him. Her personal prayer life is honored and emulated by others.

Are We There Yet? is a collection of essays grouped around three major themes: the collapse of the American empire; the question of individual identity; and some thoughts regarding the nature of a post-collapse world. The book analyzes what has gone wrong with the United States since its inception, and the problems we now face as a result. It discuss the elements of a healthy human identity--elements that are largely absent from the American scene. And it poses alternatives to all of this, models already present in the consciousness of a few, and which, post-collapse, may possibly be realized several decades down the line. In the course of this discussion, the author reviews the pathology of smart phones and related electronic gadgets; the phenomenon of Hillary Clinton as an archetypal American disaster, and of Joe Bageant as an unsung hero; and the visionary work of scholars such as Pitirim Sorokin and Lewis Mumford. All in all, Are We There Yet? will have you thinking about what the possibilities are for achieving some semblance of sanity in a world completely out of kilter.
