From an environmental journalist and mother of two young breast-fed children comes this searing, insightful look into the breastfeeding controversy and puts “common knowledge” about this most natural of processes to the test by breaking down the complex cultural, corporate, political, and technological factors that have transformed the way people think about breastfeeding and the human experience. Since the rise of infant formula in the early twentieth century, breastfeeding has gone from a basic biological function to a never-ending controversy and hot topic in the media: an Instagram photo of Blake Lively breastfeeding her daughter gained 367,000 likes and was posted across media sites from USA Today to Us Weekly. A photo of an Argentinian politician breastfeeding her 8-month-old during a session of Parliament quickly went viral, drawing a mix of support and criticism. Target’s breastfeeding policy, allowing women to nurse in any area of the store, was recently shared on Facebook to praise from mothers across America. Clearly, this is a topic that constantly makes headlines and sparks heated discussion throughout the world. Growing up, Jennifer Grayson thought nothing of the fact that her mother had not breastfed her. It wasn’t until she became a mother herself that she realized she had missed out on a natural, profound, and incredibly important experience, one that she became determined to give to her own children. Her curiosity about breastfeeding soon turned to passion, leading her to launch a worldwide search for knowledge and stories of breastfeeding. From biblical times to eighteenth century France, from modern-day Mongolia to inner-city Los Angeles, Grayson explores the personal stories of breastfeeding women throughout history around the world. Along the way, she takes readers behind the scenes at a lactation research laboratory, interviews controversial breastfeeding figures including Dr. William Sears, and shares her own personal experience of extended breastfeeding her preschool and toddler daughters. Unlatched is a thorough and fascinating study of one of the most contentious issues affecting society today.

The question at hand, regarding Protestant theological education, is the methodology with which to effectively teach courses related to spiritual formation. There are two ideologies. One maintains the premise that spirituality could be the pedagogical product of traditional theological disciplines, while the other contention is that spiritual formation demands its own discipline. The focus of this book is to examine both theories and then, ultimately, to advance the ideology of the second by producing two courses-in two contextually different formats-and then evaluating the results. What the reader will find fascinating are the direct dialogues and experiential settings fully described within the work. The detail is simply amazing. This is a powerful text for Protestant theological education on both the undergraduate and graduate levels, but could also become an invaluable tool for the local church setting interested in spiritual growth. Complete spiritual exercises are presented, as well as a weekend retreat. ** About the Author Otis Edgar Hamm Jr. has been an adjunct instructor of Religion at Mount Olive College in Mount Olive, North Carolina for several years. Dr. Hamm specializes in Christian Spirituality and received his training at The Washington Theological Union located in Washington, DC.

A seductive rebel returns to Kristina Douglas’s “absorbing world” (RT Book Reviews) of the Fallen with a deadly plan for revenge. Can she trust herself enough . . . As a seer, Martha’s visions aren’t always reliable, but lately, her erotic dreams are driving her mad, her forbidden lover a dark stranger whose name haunts her: Cain. She knows the Fallen are in danger when the rogue angel unexpectedly appears in tongues of flame and turns his beautiful, wicked eyes on her, sensing everything she most wants to keep hidden. . . . to fall in love with the enemy? For a millennium, Cain has sought revenge for the Fallen’s betrayal, and now he has finally returned to destroy their safe, tidy world. Using Martha as an unwitting pawn seems easy enough until Cain finds himself falling in love with her—just when it may be too late to save her from a brutal fate of his own design.

Diese Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit den Strukturen fiktionaler, imitierender Sprache. Am Beispiel detaillierter Analysen der sprachlichen Charakterisierung jüdischer Figuren der deutschsprachigen Literatur des 18., 19. und frühen 20. Jahrhunderts legt die Arbeit offen, welche Strukturen die jiddische Sprachrealität widerspiegeln und welche als Reflexe der (zumeist autoreigenen) Mündlichkeit gelten können. Zugleich stellt die Untersuchung eine umfangreiche grammatische Darstellung des im deutschsprachigen Raum bis ins frühe 20. Jahrhundert hinein verbreiteten Westjiddischen dar, dessen Strukturen sie mit denen deutscher und ostjiddischer Varietäten vergleicht.
