the words we live by

BOOK EXCERPT:

THE WORDS WE LIVE BY takes an entertaining and informative look at America's most important historical document, now with discussions on new rulings on hot button issues such as immigration, gay marriage, gun control, and affirmative action.

For example, in the debate over gun control, does "the right of the people to bear arms" as stated in the Second Amendment pertain to individual citizens or regulated militias? What do scholars say? Should the Internet be regulated and censored, or does this impinge on the freedom of speech as defined in the First Amendment? These and other issues vary depending on the interpretation of the Constitution. Through entertaining and informative annotations, THE WORDS WE LIVE BY offers a new way of looking at the Constitution. Its pages reflect a critical, respectful and appreciative look at one of history's greatest documents. THE WORDS WE LIVE BY is filled with a rich and engaging historical perspective along with enough surprises and fascinating facts and illustrations to prove that your Constitution is a living--and entertaining--document.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The now-classic Metaphors We Live By changed our understanding of metaphor and its role in language and the mind. Metaphor, the authors explain, is a fundamental mechanism of mind, one that allows us to use what we know about our physical and social experience to provide understanding of countless other subjects. Because such metaphors structure our most basic understandings of our experience, they are "metaphors we live by"—metaphors that can shape our perceptions and actions without our ever noticing them. In this updated edition of Lakoff and Johnson's influential book, the authors supply an afterword surveying how their theory of metaphor has developed within the cognitive sciences to become central to the contemporary understanding of how we think and how we express our thoughts in language.

BOOK EXCERPT:

With a foreword by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court. An Engaging, Accessible Guide to the Bill of Rights for Everyday Citizens. In The Bill of Rights: A User's Guide, award-winning author and constitutional scholar Linda R. Monk explores the remarkable history of the Bill of Rights amendment by amendment, the Supreme Court's interpretation of each right, and the power of citizens to enforce those rights. Stories of the ordinary people who made the Bill of Rights come alive are featured throughout. These include Fannie Lou Hamer, a Mississippi sharecropper who became a national civil rights leader; Clarence Earl Gideon, a prisoner whose handwritten petition to the Supreme Court expanded the right to counsel; Mary Beth Tinker, a 13-year-old whose protest of the Vietnam War established free speech rights for students; Michael Hardwick, a bartender who fought for privacy after police entered his bedroom unlawfully; Suzette Kelo, a nurse who opposed the city's takeover of her working-class neighborhood; and Simon Tam, a millennial whose 10-year trademark battle for his band "The Slants" ended in a unanimous Supreme Court victory. Such people prove that, in the words of Judge Learned Hand, "Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court, can save it." Exploring the history, scope, and meaning of the first ten amendments-as well as the Fourteenth Amendment, which nationalized them and extended new rights of equality to all-The Bill of Rights: A User's Guide is a powerful examination of the values that define American life and the tools that every citizen needs. Winner of the American Bar Association's Silver Gavel Award, its highest honor for media about the law.

BOOK EXCERPT:

To God be the glory for great things he has done and continue to do. Words to Live By was birthed from reading the late Dr. Myles Munroe’s book Understanding Your Potential. Proverbs 13:2, a man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth. In other words, the life we are currently living was framed from the words we declare from our lips, so if you like the fruits that you are presently reaping you need to change the words that you allow to depart from your lips. Webster’s Dictionary defines words as a speech or sounds that symbolizes and communicates meaningful speech. Words are very important and they take on substance once spoken in the spiritual realm. The Psalmist David said, “Day after day they pour forth speech, and night after night they reveal knowledge Psalm 19:2. After a thorough study on the importance of words, I was inspired by the Holy Spirit to author this book to encourage the Body of Believers to guard the words that we allow to depart from our lips because we will reap the repercussion of those fruits. Words to Live By was written to inspire and motivate believers to declare the spoken Word of God daily over their live, businesses, marriage, family, communities, and Ministry to reprogram their mental capacity by renewing their minds by kicking the accuser and his cohorts out of their lives by the power of the Holy Spirit, and to be a source of blessing.
