Sexuality and holy longing - embracing intimacy in a broken world by McMinn, Lisa Graham, 1958-

Sexuality and holy longing - embracing intimacy in a broken world

This book shows how many Christians, including pastors, parents and leaders, have unwittingly absorbed many cultural ideas about sexuality that are not supported by the Bible. As people created by God for relationship, our sexuality guarantees that we will long for and be drawn toward others, McMinn provides a blueprint for understanding sexuality--and our longing to be loved--at all stages of life (childhood, teen years, early adulthood, midlife, and old age), and addresses tough topics includi

Smart people don't diet - how the latest science can help you lose weight permanently by Markey, Charlotte N., author.

Smart people don't diet - how the latest science can help you lose weight permanently

"Being on a diet is a miserable experience for most people, and it rarely leads to the desired goal of shedding fat. In fact, studies show that dieters often gain weight rather than lose it because most diets' intensity, restrictions, and short duration are ill-equipped to produce long-term effects. In Smart People Don't Diet, Dr. Charlotte N. Markey offers a refreshingly different approach to weight management. Based on more than 100 years of research by scientists, doctors, nutritionists, and

So you've been publicly shamed / A Journey Through the World of Public Humiliation

"For the past three years, Jon Ronson has been immersing himself in the world of modern-day public shaming--meeting famous shamees, shamers, and bystanders who have been impacted. This is the perfect time for a modern-day Scarlet Letter--a radically empathetic book about public shaming, and about shaming as a form of social control.

Social security works! - why social security isn't going broke and how expanding it will help us all by Altman, Nancy J., 1950- author.

Social security works! - why social security isn't going broke and how expanding it will help us all

"A growing chorus of prominent voices in Congress and elsewhere are calling for the expansion of our Social Security system-people who know that Social Security will not "go broke" and does not add a penny to the national debt. Social Security Works! will amplify these voices and offer a powerful antidote to the three-decade-long, billionaire-funded campaign to make us believe that this vital institution is destined to collapse. It isn't. From the Silent Generation to Baby Boomers, from Generati

Sometimes an art - nine essays on history by Bailyn, Bernard, author.

Sometimes an art - nine essays on history

"The past has always been elusive: how can we understand people whose worlds were utterly different from our own without imposing our own standards and hindsight? What did things feel like in the moment when outcomes were uncertain? How can we recover the uncertainties of the past, before the outcomes were known? What kind of imagination goes into the writing of transformative history? Are there latent trends that distinguish the kinds of history we now write? How unique was North America among
