MotherOfPeace_MBWebMother of Peace

Two-thousand years ago, a young, Roman princess danced for a lustful king. She was Salome, whose name meant “peace.” But the events which followed her dance were anything but peaceful. Described by history as the epitome of the Whore of Babylon, her later portrayal in plays and movies only served to enhance this image. But what if everything we thought we knew about Salome was a lie? In this slim text, Salome walks out of the mists of time and speaks directly to the modern world about the events surrounding her life.

From the royal palace in Jerusalem, to the deserts of Egypt and beyond—Salome’s journey through the dark night of the soul explores politics, faith, the loss of the soul, and the regaining of the heart.

Different is Awesome!

“Confession…I am a huge Ryan Haack fan. Long before reading this book, I have admired all he has done to help people see past perceived disabilities and limitations. With Different is Awesome!, Ryan beautifully captures his amazing spirit in the form of questions asked by children in a classroom. Simply written, but with a very powerful message, I was reminded of many similar experiences and questions from my youth. I hope you can read this book with members of your family. There are inspirational lessons for people of any ability.”
