under our skin

BOOK EXCERPT:

Jesus Christ died for all people. Every heart that beats was made alive by the very breath of God. Is there hope for honest and healing conversation on issues that are ultimately about so much more than black and white? Watson draws from his own life, his family legacy, and his role as a husband and father to sensitively examine both sides of the race debate and appeal to the power and possibility of faith as a step toward healing.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Don McRae grew up in a South Africa where his father would call the black men he met 'boy' and where his mother insisted that their black servants used tin mugs, plates and cutlery as they ate the family's left-over food in the backyard of their grand suburban property. The McRaes, like so many white people, seemed oblivious to the violent injustices of apartheid. As the author grew up, the political differences between father and son widened and when Don refused to join up for National Service, risking imprisonment or exile overseas, the two were torn apart. It wasn't until years later that the author discovered that the father with whom he had fought so bitterly had later in his life transformed himself into a political hero. Risking everything one dark and rainy night Ian McRae travelled secretly into the black township of Soweto to meet members of Nelson Mandela's then banned African National Congress to discuss ways to bring power to black South Africa. He had no political ambitions; he was just a man trying to replace the worst in himself with something better. Under Our Skinis a memoir of these tumultuous years in South Africa's history, as told through the author's family story. It offers an intimate and penetrating perspective on life under apartheid, and tells a story of courage and fear, hope and desolation and love and pain, especially between a father and his son.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Let's admit it. When it comes to the topics of race and racism in our country, we all feel a range of emotions--we're angry, offended, sad, hopeless, and confused. Based on Benjamin Watson's groundbreaking book, Under Our Skin, the Under Our Skin Group Conversation Guide leads you on a four-week journey to honest conversation about race, bias, and justice in our nation. For so many people, the racial divide is an argument, a political position, a debate on TV. But keeping our distance isn't working. The truth is that change starts here, with us. An NFL tight end for the Baltimore Ravens and a widely read and followed commentator on social media, Benjamin offers a look at both sides of the race debate and appeals to the power and possibility of faith as a step toward healing. Filled with personal stories and insights, Under Our Skin offers a bold new path toward healing the racial conflict of our world.

BOOK EXCERPT:

You do not know anything about the world and about your selves because you were ordered to believe. You do not know how to think, analyze, and all your "thoughts" are just a walk to the internal "cinema," where you will be told and shown how to live and what to be. And, you will have nothing left other than to do that, what your "inner voice" told you, and reinforced with corresponding sensations. A human and a computer have a similarity: both do not work without software. A computer without software is a pile of useless metal. A human without software is a body, in which automatic physiological processes support life, but he cannot function, he is “a vegetable.” Today many people are familiar with computer software, but no one is familiar with “software” of a human. Although human software is actually the “soul” that throughout many centuries people are looking for so hard and cannot find. Software and psyche (soul) are synonyms. The role of human software is enormous: it is the basis of functioning of human psychophysiology. This civilization has come up with a lot of modifications of artificial software without coming close to even approaching the question of every person having natural software, given by nature at the time of birth. People had to live somehow. Humans differ from animals: software of animals works automatically since the moment birth, it is not necessary to comprehend and study it, it just works. This is different with humans. So, artificial software was invented instead of natural. Although it differs from natural like papier-mâché or plastic apples differ from natural apples. This civilization in fact forced humanity to eat plastic apples by creating artificial software. The outcome is easy to predict: such diet leads to imminent death. This is exactly what is happening. People of this civilization live for seventy to ninety years on average. Meanwhile physiologists state that the human body is designed by nature to live a healthy (and youthful!) life of several hundred of years. Instead, we have colossally rapid wear of psychophysiology, premature aging and death. Due to these “apples,” inborn human potential is realized by one to two percent at best. Just imagine: everyday people eat only plastic apples. The result, however, is extended through time, and it is similar to the effect of a person taking daily micro dozes of poison. What about the natural software? And, why no one knows about it? To know there needs to be a source of information. The source of knowledge about software of Homo sapiens as a textbook, from which each person can learn his or her natural program is not available in this civilization. Uncovering it without a source of information by means of “diving deep within oneself” does not work. Instead of knowledge there is only imagination. Without a “textbook” or, better said, instructions, a human simply cannot comprehend him or her self. The intellect of modern Homo sapiens does not work. He is blocked by artificial software. Completely! You do not believe this, are filled with outrage, protest, wondering what do people think with then? The answer is: with nothing because people do not think. Instead of intellect people have ancestors’ heritage, “Ahnenerbe.” And, the word called “thought” is a file from this “Golden collection.” People do not even have imagination. All imagination is the fruit of the “great inheritance,” and that is all. So, getting to know his own self is not the only challenge that modern human intellect failed to achieve.

BOOK EXCERPT:

A riveting thriller reminiscent of The Hot Zone, this true story dives into the mystery surrounding one of the most controversial and misdiagnosed conditions of our time—Lyme disease—and of Willy Burgdorfer, the man who discovered the microbe behind it, revealing his secret role in developing bug-borne biological weapons, and raising terrifying questions about the genesis of the epidemic of tick-borne diseases affecting millions of Americans today. While on vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, Kris Newby was bitten by an unseen tick. That one bite changed her life forever, pulling her into the abyss of a devastating illness that took ten doctors to diagnose and years to recover: Newby had become one of the 300,000 Americans who are afflicted with Lyme disease each year. As a science writer, she was driven to understand why this disease is so misunderstood, and its patients so mistreated. This quest led her to Willy Burgdorfer, the Lyme microbe’s discoverer, who revealed that he had developed bug-borne bioweapons during the Cold War, and believed that the Lyme epidemic was started by a military experiment gone wrong. In a superb, meticulous work of narrative journalism, Bitten takes readers on a journey to investigate these claims, from biological weapons facilities to interviews with biosecurity experts and microbiologists doing cutting-edge research, all the while uncovering darker truths about Willy. It also leads her to uncomfortable questions about why Lyme can be so difficult to both diagnose and treat, and why the government is so reluctant to classify chronic Lyme as a disease. A gripping, infectious page-turner, Bitten will shed a terrifying new light on an epidemic that is exacting an incalculable toll on us, upending much of what we believe we know about it.
