PBS's Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, which Bob Abernethy conceived and anchors, has been described as "the best spot on the television landscape to take in the broad view of the spiritual dimension of American life . . ." by the Christian Science Monitor. "Finally," wrote the San Francisco Chronicle, "something intelligent on TV about religion." Now, together with his coauthor William Bole, Abernethy has turned his attention to making a book that asks all the big questions—and elicits the most surprising answers from a who’s-who of today’s serious religious and spiritual thinkers from across the spectrum of faiths and denominations. In this thoughtful collection, extraordinary people give their personal and private accounts of their own spiritual struggle. Their insights on community, prayer, suffering, religious observance, the choice to live with or without a god, and the meanings that are gleaned from everyday life form an elegant meditation on the desire for something beyond what we can see and measure. More than fifty contributors, including Jimmy Carter, Francis Collins, The Dalai Lama, Robert Franklin, Irving Greenberg, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Harold Kushner, Anne Lamott, Madeleine L’Engle, Thomas Lynch, Martin Marty, Mark Noll, Rachel Remen, Marilynne Robinson, Barbara Brown Taylor, Studs Terkel, Thich Nhat Hanh, Phyllis Tickle, Desmond Tutu, Jean Vanier, and Marianne Williamson.

Women today are fading. In a female culture built on Photoshopped perfection and Pinterest fantasies, we’ve lost the ability to dream our own big dreams. So busy trying to do it all and have it all, we’ve missed the life we were really designed for. And we are paying the price. The rise of loneliness, depression, and anxiety among the female population in Western cultures is at an all-time high. Overall, women are two and a half times more likely to take antidepressants than men. What is it about our culture, the expectations, and our way of life that is breaking women down in unprecedented ways? In this vulnerable memoir of transformation, Rebekah Lyons shares her journey from Atlanta, Georgia, to the heart of Manhattan, where she found herself blindsided by crippling depression and anxiety. Overwhelmed by the pressure to be domestically efficient, professionally astute, and physically attractive, Rebekah finally realized that freedom can come only by facing our greatest fears and fully surrendering to God’s call on our lives. This book is an invitation for all women to take that first step toward freedom. For it is only when we free-fall that we can truly fly.

For many of us, life seems like a puzzle with missing pieces. We form plans and change them; we choose one path then another, trying to find the right mate and career, hoping that we’ve made the right decision and that it will all work out. At some point, we ask ourselves the central question: What is the purpose of my life? Few writers approach the topic of life purpose with the clarity of Dan Millman, whose prior book The Life You Were Born to Live has reached more than a million readers worldwide. In The Four Purposes of Life, Millman distills decades of exploration and experience into a concise map of what we’re here to accomplish on our life’s journey. This book is for anyone seeking deeper insight into themselves and their lives, but especially for those at a crossroads, facing a challenge or change, when past approaches no longer work.

Feast on this twisted Word Play in Five Acts by a psycho linguist ‘wordo’ who offers you a corny-copia of off the wall humor, featuring cartoons, gags, puns and other word play. It’s a fey mix of dumb to sophisticated silliness and provocative satire (environmental, political, social and religious) for thoughtful but twist-loving readers. The acts encompass different styles of word play, each with a special twist or formula, mostly organized dictionary-like within each chapter. Styles of humor include daffynitions, confusions say, newords, sounds alike fun, spoonerisms, name droppings, anagrams, palindromes, word ladders, rebuses, book titles, light verse, neo-truisms, idiom abuse, half-asked questions, jokes and one-liners.

So often we find ourselves blocked in our lives, unhappy but at the same time anxious and fearful about making real and lasting change and uncertain what direction to take. In this book psychologist Dr Freddy Jackson Brown reveals that many of our difficulties are self-imposed. By following the principles of a breakthrough approach, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, he shows that we can all live a happier, less fearful and more purposeful life. The book explains the key principles of ACT - accepting rather than avoiding difficult experiences, discovering how to defuse harmful thoughts (often through changes in the way we use language), focusing on the values that give your life meaning and committing to changes in behaviour. The ground-breaking aspect of this therapy is its recognition that lasting happiness can only be found when we identify the core values that are most profoundly important to us. The book begins by explaining that values give meaning and dignity to the difficult times we may face and provide a guiding star by which we can steer a path through life, ensuring that our choices are consistent with who we truly are. The book goes on to explain how we can determine our values and understand them, and then put our values into action in practical ways throughout every aspect of our life. Dr Jackson Brown shows us how to set long-term goals based on our values and shows how exploring the issues that seem to most distress us can provide clues as to what truly matters in our lives. Rich with case studies and practical exercises, this inspiring book will lead you to the life you truly wish to lead.
