For more than a century, Bible scholars and university researchers have been systematically debunking what ordinary Christians believed about Jesus of Nazareth. But what if the most recent Biblical scholarship actually affirmed the New Testament? What if Jesus was not a zealot revolutionary or a Greek cynic philosopher or a protofeminist gnostic but precisely what he claimed to be: the divine Son of Man prophesied in the book of Daniel who gave his life as a ransom for many? What if everything the Gospels say about Jesus of Nazareth - his words, his deeds, his plans - turned out to be true? Searching for Jesus changes ´´what if?´´ to ´´what is´´, debunking the debunkers and showing how the latest scholarship supports orthodox Christian belief. 1. Language: English.

Since 1980, depth psychologist Bill Plotkin has been guiding women and men into the wilderness - the redrock canyons and snow-crested mountains of the American West - but also into the wilds of the soul. He calls this work soulcraft. There´s a great longing in all people to uncover the secrets and mysteries of our individual lives, to find the unique gift we were born to bring to our communities, and to experience our full membership in the more-than-human world. This journey to soul is a descent into layers of the self, much deeper than personality, a journey meant for each one of us, not just for the heroes and heroines of mythology. A modern handbook for the journey, Soulcraft is not an imitation of indigenous ways, but a contemporary nature-based approach born from wilderness experience, the traditions of Western culture, and the cross-cultural heritage of all humanity. Filled with stories, poems, and guidelines, Soulcraft introduces over 40 practices that facilitate the descent to soul, including dreamwork, wilderness vision fasts, talking across the species boundaries, council, self-designed ceremony, nature-based shadow work, and the arts of romance, being lost, and storytelling. 1.

Before there was ´´tourism´´ or ´´leisure time;´´ before souvenir ashtrays became ´´camp´´ and ´´kitsch;´´ before Goofy Golf became an ´´attraction´´ and today´s colossal theme parks could even be imagined, there was ´´Beautiful Lake of the Ozarks -- Family Vacationland,´´ where to this day the ashtrays remain devoid of irony. It was here, at Arrowhead Lodge at Lake of the Ozarks, where Bill Geist spent his summers between high school and college working at this tacky resort. What may have seemed ´´just a summer job´´ became, upon reflection, a transformative era where a cast of eccentric, small-town characters and experiences would make Bill the man he is today. Bill realized it was this time in his life that would shape his sensibilities, his humor, his writing, and ultimately a career searching the world for other such untamed characters for The Chicago Tribune and the New York Times. In LAKE OF THE OZARKS, two-time Emmy Award-winning CBS Sunday Morning correspondent Bill Geist reflects on his coming of age in the American heartland of the Midwest and traces his evolution as a man and a writer, in the summers between high school and college, before he went off to Vietnam and the country went to Hell. Written with Geistian warmth and quirky humor, LAKE OF THE OZARKS takes readers back to a bygone era, and shows how you can find inspiration in the most unexpected places.

The author of 6 Gold Medallion award-winning books challenges Christians to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, what´s so amazing about grace? Philip Yancey gives the listener a probing and impassioned look at grace: what it looks like - but more importantly, what it doesn´t look like. Yancey contends that grace is a concept at the heart of God´s plan for salvation, and that it is the responsibility of every Christian to reveal the grace the world is searching for. 1.
