BOOK EXCERPT:

A different kind of hope for living in these turbulent times Climate disruption. Growing social inequality. Pollution. We are living in an era of unprecedented crises, resulting in widespread feelings of fear, despair, and grief. Now, more than ever, maintaining hope for the future is a monumental task. Intrinsic Hope offers a powerful antidote to these feelings. It shows how conventional ideas of hope are rooted in the belief that life will conform to our wishes and how this leads to disappointment, despair, and a dismal view of the future. As an alternative, it offers "intrinsic hope," a powerful, liberating, and positive approach to life based on having a deep trust in whatever happens. The author, a hopeful survivor, shows how to cultivate intrinsic hope through practical tips and six mindful habits for living a positive, courageous life in these troubled times. Whether working directly on ecological or social issues or worried about children and grandchildren, this book is for everyone concerned about the future and looking for a deeper source of hope for a better world.

BOOK EXCERPT:

During the last two decades there has been a renaissance in the field of Christian philosophy. Unfortunately, most of this excellent work has not reached general readers. Reason for the Hope Within was produced specifically to make available the best of contemporary Christian philosophy in a clear, accessible -- and highly relevant -- manner. Fourteen of America's rising Christian philosophers here cover many of the traditional themes of Christian apologetics (arguments for the existence of God, the problem of evil, the possibility of miracles) as well as topics of special relevance to today's world (Eastern religions, Christianity and science, Christianity and ethics, the existence of heaven and hell).

BOOK EXCERPT:

What effect does religion have on physical and mental health? In answering this question, this book reviews and discusses research on the relationship between religion and a variety of mental and physical health outcomes, including depression and anxiety; heart disease, stroke, and cancer; and health related behaviors such as smoking and substance abuse. The authors examine the positive and negative effects of religion on health throughout the life span, from childhood to old age. Based on their findings, they build theoretical models illustrating the behavioral, psychological, social, and physiological pathways through which religion may influence health. The authors also review research on the impact of religious affiliation, belief, and practice on the use of health services and compliance with medical treatment. In conclusion, they discuss the clinical relevance of their findings and make recommendations for future research priorities. Offering the first comprehensive examination of its topic, this volume is an indispensable resource for research scientists, health professionals, public policy makers, and anyone interested in the relationship between religion and health.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Intrinsic Golf - It's Within You: How to Play Better Golf When You Don't Have Time to Practice or Take Lessons will help all golfers, beginners as well as seasoned players, discover that it's easier to find their own swing and play by feel than it is to learn and play with someone else's methods and mechanics. Former Major LEague Pitcher and professional/college coach Bill Denehy was taught the underlying theory behind the basic swing exercises described and demonstrated in Intrinsic Golf by Baseball Hall of Famer Ted Williams. These exercises provide a simple method for golfers to find or rediscover the rhythmic, flowing swing motion that's within them. By using their own intrinsic swing, instead of today's modern mechanical hitting motion, golfers will come to realize that improvements in both distance and accuracy are derived from consistency, tempo and speed - not power. And since swinging the club is physically less taxing than hitting at the ball, golfers will discover that their new, relaxed swing will result in improved ball striking and lower scores - even when they don't have time to practice or take lessons. Throughout the book, Bill utilizes various facts and notable quotes to validate his theory, including the following excerpt from a recent Golf Digest article by NBC Golf Analyst Johnny Miller: "We're living in an age of power in which distance is king. Young players are taught to just murder the ball, and their swings have become incredibly fast and violent. This is fine for world-class players with superb hand-eye coordination, but for the average golfer it often spells trouble since accuracy is every bit as important as distance. Something has been lost - a thing called "grace." The rhythmic, flowing type of swing that golfers used to envy and try to emulate has fallen by the wayside. It's too bad because the majority of golfers would play better if they practiced with a languid, flowing swing in mind. They would hit the ball more solidly, have better timing, and be more consistent." We could not have stated the case for reading Intrinsic Golf any better. Learn how to find your own rhythmic swing in just two minutes a day. Intrinsic Golf -It's Within You! For more information, please visit www.intrinsicgolf.com The Golf Channel will be airing a segment of Golf Academy Live featuring author Bill Denehy and the concepts behind Intrinsic Golf.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The only true and unedited telling of the life of Christ—his life and times, in historical context, but not lacking the psychology behind his physical being and spirit. Unlike other books seeking to strip Jesus' story to reveal only the human being, Romano Guardini's The Lord gives the complete story of Jesus Christ—as man, Holy Ghost, and Creator. Pope Benedict XVI lauds Guardini's work as providing a full understanding of the Son of God, away from the prejudice that rationality engenders. Put long-held myths aside and discover the entire truth about God's only begotten Son.

BOOK EXCERPT:

At present the battle over who defines our future is being waged most publicly by secular and religious fundamentalists. Hope and the Longing for Utopia offers an alternative position, disclosing a conceptual path toward potential worlds that resist a limited view of human potential and the gift of religion. In addition to outlining the value of embracing unknown potentialities, these twelve interdisciplinary essays explore why it has become crucial that we commit to hoping for values that resist traditional ideological commitments. Contextualized by contemporary writing on utopia, and drawing from a wealth of times and cultures ranging from Calvin's Geneva to early twentieth-century Japanese children's stories to Hollywood cinema, these essays cumulatively disclose the fundamental importance of resisting tantalizing certainties while considering the importance of the unknown and unknowable. Beginning with a set of four essays outlining the importance of hope and utopia as diagnostic concepts, and following with four concrete examples, the collection ends with a set of essays that provide theological speculations on the need to embrace finitude and limitations in a world increasingly enframed by secularizing impulses. Overall, this book discloses how hope and utopia illuminate ways to think past simplified wishes for the future.
