At his heaviest, Mark Rucker weighed 386 pounds. Despite his efforts, he never managed to lose weight and keep it off, instead falling back into old habits. One fateful afternoon, he visited a theme park with his family and found he couldn't fit on the roller coasters--and couldn't share that experience with his daughter. Armed with new motivation, Mark set out to change his life: to lose the weight, regain his health, and earn back the chance to live his fullest life. What began as a journey back to health became a campaign to complete one of the most grueling athletic feats in the world: the Ironman Triathlon, a day-long race covering nearly 150 miles by water, bicycle, and foot. In 2013, a few short years after struggling to walk a mile, Mark completed Ironman Louisville. This book tells the story of Mark's struggle and offers his insights and motivation on his journey to rediscover the greatness within, including the six-part process he defined through his own experience.

This is the first general comprehensive introduction to Manichaeism aimed at a non-specialist and undergraduate readership. This study will be a historical and theological introduction to Manichaeism. It will comprise a biographical treatment of the founder Mani, situating his personality, his writings and his ideas within the Aramaic Christian tradition of third century (CE) Mesopotamia. It will provide a historical treatment of the Manichaean church in late antiquity (250-700 CE), detailing the emergence of Manichaeism in the late Roman and Byzantine empires, in addition to examining the continuation of Manichaean traditions in the eastern world (China) up to the thirteenth century and beyond. The book will consider the theology of Mani's system, with the aim of providing a clear-eyed treatment of the cosmogonic, scriptural and ecclesiological ideas forming its foundations. The study will base its analysis on original Manichaean literary sources, together with rehabilitating the representation of Manichaeism in those writings that polemicised against the religion. The study will aim to demonstrate the highly syncretic nature of Manichaeism, and will look to move forward 'traditional' perceptions of the religion as being simply a form of Christian Gnostic Dualism.
