BOOK EXCERPT:

From their beginnings as teenagers experimenting in a San Fernando Valley garage dubbed "The Hell Hole" to headlining major music festivals around the world, discover the whole story of Bad Religion's forty-year career in irreverent style. Do What You Want's principal storytellers are the four voices that define Bad Religion: Greg Graffin, a Wisconsin kid who sang in the choir and became an L.A. punk rock icon while he was still a teenager; Brett Gurewitz, a high school dropout who founded the independent punk label Epitaph Records and went on to become a record mogul; Jay Bentley, a surfer and skater who gained recognition as much for his bass skills as for his antics on and off the stage; and Brian Baker, a founding member of Minor Threat who joined the band in 1994 and brings a fresh perspective as an intimate outsider. With a unique blend of melodic hardcore and thought-provoking lyrics, Bad Religion paved the way for the punk rock explosion of the 1990s, opening the door for bands like NOFX, The Offspring, Rancid, Green Day, and Blink-182 to reach wider audiences. They showed the world what punk could be, and they continue to spread their message one song, one show, one tour at a time.

Framed by a long conversation between two old friends, the book reconceives aging as a liberating experience that enables us to become more authentically the person we always meant to be with each passing year. In their bestseller Repacking Your Bags, Richard J. Leider and David A.

Lord What Do You Want Me To Do

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

Have you ever asked, "Lord, what do you want me to do"? This question could come during times of stress or hardship but it could also be simply our desire to do what He wants us to do. This book is a guide for a variety of situations or circumstances where we need divine guidance. All we have to do is ask Him for it. One thing is certain: none of us wants to come to the end of our life and realize we lived without ever sincerely asking the Lord what He wanted us to do. Blessed is the man or woman who can say on their deathbed, "Lord, I did what you wanted me to do." This will not happen unless we make it happen. Obedience to the Lord's commands often slips by without us asking, "Am I doing what the Lord wants me to do?" Is there anything more important than this? I don't think so. Open your heart for what the Lord wants for you. "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee because he trusts in Thee" (Isaiah 26:3).
