“Winning the battles of destiny: Conquering the foundational strongholds,” should be instinctively attractive to any knowledgeable Christian. I mean those Christians who are not bogged down by humanistic philosophy of disputation or drowning in the bliss ignorance of episcopal feeding bottles thrust into their throats with their willing accomplice. An informed Christian most likely filled with the Holy Ghost and led by the Holy Spirit (Roman 8:14) will be attuned with nearly every word written in the handy book.
The simplicity of the narrative, yet with the profundity of in-depth analysis and real-life occurrences with relevant biblical references, makes the book very interesting to read. Nothing is complicated even when the truth is not colored with any foreign garb to make it acceptable. It is unapologetically truthful.
I listen to contemporary christian music from time to time. They don’t compare to the artistry and feeling that went into the old hymns. It is next to impossible to find a church that uses hymnals anymore. I think these songs need to be preserved. The Billy Graham Team did an excellent job choosing songs, compiling biographies and stories about the authors of the hymns contained in this book.
Much in this life contends to master us–sin, the flesh, the devil, even mere distractions. But Christ promised and the apostles confirmed that believers would live lives characterized by overcoming. Yet many Christians miss out on the victorious life Christ won for them because they are trapped in guilt and shame, immobilized by fear, or stuck in old patterns of thinking.
This classic work from legendary Bible teacher and evangelist Dwight L. Moody shows believers how they can have confidence in Christ’s call on their lives, and thus experience the full joy of the Lord, both in this life and the next.

In today’s world, freedom is our basic condition, and until we learn to live with that freedom, and learn to live by ourselves and with ourselves, we are denying ourselves the possibility of finding love and happiness with someone else.

Where are the boundaries that define “lust” versus “love”…and can lust ever grow into love?

In our post-ideological world, where old moralities are out of date, we have a golden opportunity to redefine and revitalize the very foundations of our lives.

Introduces students to the significant topics in the field of anthropology of gender – drawing not only from classic sources, but also from the diverse literature on gender roles and ideology around the world. This book takes an accessible approach to the subject matter, making coverage appropriate for students from a variety of levels.
This book is a follow-up to Arber and Ginn’s award winning “Connecting Gender and Ageing” (1995). It contains original chapters from eminent writers on gender and ageing, addressing newly emergent areas within gender and ageing, including gender identity and masculinity in later life. Early work on gender and ageing was dominated by a focus on older women. The present collection breaks with this tradition by emphasizing changing gender roles and relationships, gender identity and an examination of masculinities in midlife and later life. A key theme running through the book is the need to reconceptualize partnership status, in order to understand the implications for women and men of widowhood, divorce and new forms of relationships, such as Living Apart Together (LAT-relationships). Another is the influence of socio-economic circumstances on how ageing is experienced and transitions are negotiated.
The book illustrates new ways of thinking about old age and indicates policy implications, especially concerning the nature of service provision for older people. It will change the ways in which social scientists conceptualize later life.
Written with undergraduate students and researchers in mind, “Gender and Ageing: Changing Roles and Relationships” will be an invaluable text for those studying social gerontology, sociology of later life, gender studies, health and community care and social policy.
American families are sick of rudeness, aggression, and unruly behavior. They are searching for ways to cool down society — and bring up kids who win at life by peaceful, compassionate, and rational means, rather than the opposite. This is the book that casts out a new lifeline to them and speaks positively to their deepest needs and yearnings. Explaining that kindness is the heart and core of civility and manners in any society, Letitia Baldrige, America’s number one best-selling authority on manners, has finally written the book that millions have been waiting for: a road map to raising and guiding kids who succeed in life through decency and honor.
“It all starts in the home,” says Baldrige, as she shows parents and other concerned adults how to teach kids to:
Gain respect and become leaders — at home, at school, and in the larger world — without becoming wimps or bullies.
Defuse explosive situations with words and actions that turn hostility into harmony.
Use conciliation instead of confrontation with peers, authority figures, and others.
Be courteous and compassionate with family and friends and out in public while still standing up for themselves.
Learn behaviors that will make them liked and respected and will make the world around them a better place as they grow up. And much more…
Baldrige accomplishes this using real-life examples of encounters between adults and young people and the day-to-day interactions between young peers — at home, at school, and out in the world — plus the compelling and often personal true stories and anecdotes that have made her other books so warm and conversational and loved by millions.
In his longtime best-sellingBook of Virtues, William Bennett showed us the values we should strive for to get life back on track again. In her book, Letitia Baldrige shows us how to apply those principles in everyday life, twenty-four hours a day — and get results!
With her disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice, and dry sense of humor, Nora Ephron shares with us her ups and downs in I Feel Bad About My Neck, a candid, hilarious look at women who are getting older and dealing with the tribulations of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and life itself.
The woman who brought us When Harry Met Sally . . ., Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail, and Bewitched, and the author of best sellers Heartburn, Scribble Scribble, and Crazy Salad, discusses everything–from how much she hates her purse to how much time she spends attempting to stop the clock: the hair dye, the treadmill, the lotions and creams that promise to slow the aging process but never do. Oh, and she can’t stand the way her neck looks. But her dermatologist tells her there’s no quick fix for that.
Ephron chronicles her life as an obsessed cook, passionate city dweller, and hapless parent. She recounts her anything-but-glamorous days as a White House intern during the JFK years (“I am probably the only young woman who ever worked in the Kennedy White House that the President did not make a pass at”) and shares how she fell in and out of love with Bill Clinton–from a distance, of course. But mostly she speaks frankly and uproariously about life as a woman of a certain age.
Utterly courageous, wickedly funny, and unexpectedly moving in its truth telling, I Feel Bad About My Neck is a book of wisdom, advice, and laugh-out-loud moments, a scrumptious, irresistible treat.
