If ever you have been humiliated playing word games, wondered how some players seem to pull seven-letter words out of a hat, questioned what your favorite game words meant, or simply could use a humorous, mentally stimulating way to rapidly recall key bonus words, then The Amazing Illustrated Word Game Memory Book is for you. This volume organizes letters in groups of six, the so-called six-letter stems, according to those most likely to lead to seven-letter bonus-scoring words. The letters of my central seven six-letter stems; INEAST, RNEAST, IREAST, INRAST, INERST, INEART and INEASR, are ones that are highly likely to show up in scrambled array in a word-game-seven-letter hand, and are the ones most likely to generate seven-letter bonus words. For example, add any letter, except J, Q or Y, to INEAST and one or more of the seven-letter words in the official word-game lexicon show up, but of course you have to know them and quickly unscramble them to be able to use them. In this volume these words are mentally filed for instantaneous recall through the use of coded, dramatically humorous stories and pictures. Active participation on the part of the reader in the form of reading, reciting, writing and coloring is used to trigger memory traces in both the right and left-brain. Mental visualization of pictures is used to reinforce photographic memory. And the humorous, dramatic or sometimes politically incorrect stories that go with the pictures are used to reinforce emotional memory traces. In addition the stories and the seven-letter words that go with the stories are organized according to an alphanumeric code that helps create a mental filing cabinet for rapid retrieval of the words in question. A method of play that will further increase the chances of forming bonus-scoring game-words is also given.

This book, Volume 2, Set 2 of the AIWGMB, is a continuation of a three-set series of stories and illustrations representing all of the 7-letter words captured by The Central Twenty-One Five-Letter Stems that feed into the Central Seven Six-Letter Stems of Volume 1, Set 1. Knowledge and flash, photographic-memory recall of these word lists, together with those of the Auxiliary Seven Six-Letter Stems of Volume 1, Set 2 can be valuable assets for any wannabe, top contender in our rapidly growing, competitive, word-game, social networks. The wordlists, organized in Mentafile format, are coded with peg-words assigned to each letter of the alphabet. This type of iconic coding-organization can make letter-management, and identification of 7-letter words within scrambled arrays, effortless, almost as though one has an app that automatically brings bonus-words to mind as one plays off letters "on-the-way" to one of the Central Seven Six-Letter Stems. For example, in a board game, where letters must be unscrambled to reveal hidden words, one might hold, in alphagram order, the following seven letters; ADNRSTU. For those accomplished with Vol. 2, Set 2 of the AIWGMB, the identification of the five-letter stem, RNAST, and the letter, D, within ADNRSTU, would be instantaneous, along with the mental search for the story and illustration of "She STRANDS the drunk on a TUNDRA'S plain." Alternatively, one might hold ADNRSST, which would immediately bring up the word STRANDS from that story. STANDER, the only other possibility for a 7-letter RNASTD word would show up with the holding of ADENRST, the only bonus word featured in the drunk file of RNEAST, one of the Central Seven Six-Letter Stems of Vol. 1, Set 1. Therefore, with no E, R or S in the hand, one skilled in the use of The AIWGMB would know, with valuable certainty, that no 7-letter bonus words were available for play. But the fun's not over. It really begins when we add to our search the thirty four, 8-letter RNASTD words of RNAST, RNEAST and INRAST. Having learned to "read" alphagrams from the flashcards connected to the stories and Illustrations of this series, we now watch our opponents shrink in terror as we unleash our knowledge and skill at finding and playing one of these 8-letter winners!

A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR From the New York Times-bestselling author of The Cloister Walk, a book about Christianity, spirituality, and rediscovered faith. Struggling with her return to the Christian church after many years away, Kathleen Norris found it was the language of Christianity that most distanced her from faith. Words like "judgment," "faith," "dogma," "salvation," "sinner"—even "Christ"—formed what she called her "scary vocabulary," words that had become so codified or abstract that their meanings were all but impenetrable. She found she had to wrestle with them and make them her own before they could confer their blessings and their grace. Blending history, theology, storytelling, etymology, and memoir, Norris uses these words as a starting point for reflection, and offers a moving account of her own gradual conversion. She evokes a rich spirituality rooted firmly in the chaos of everyday life—and offers believers and doubters alike an illuminating perspective on how we can embrace ancient traditions and find faith in the contemporary world.

While many evangelical congregations have moved away from hymns and hymnals, these were once central fixtures in the evangelical tradition. This book examines the role and importance of hymns in evangelicalism, not only as a part of worship but as tools for theological instruction, as a means to identity formation, and as records of past spiritual experiences of the believing community. Written by knowledgeable church historians, Wonderful Words of Life explores the significance of hymn-singing in many dimensions of American Protestant and evangelical life. The book focuses mainly on church life in the United States but also discusses the foundational contributions of Isaac Watts and other British hymn writers, the use of gospel songs in English Canada, and the powerful attraction of African-American gospel music for whites of several religious persuasions. Includes appendixes on the American Protestant Hymn Project and on hymns in Roman Catholic hymnals. Contributors: Susan Wise Bauer Thomas E.

WARNING: The Believer General has determined that reading this book could be harmful to your faith. After exhaustive investigation, it has been determined that Wonderful Wawa is neither a being of this earth nor a god, but a secret agent of the LIA: the Lunatic Intelligence Agency, for you humans out there. The LIA is an elite arm of the government of planet Lunacy, a world that orbits a very small sun situated behind Antares and hidden from Earthlings. Wonderful Wawa arrived on Earth in a womb-shaped spaceship and implanted into a human female, camouflaging himself as a fellow human being. His only mission: infiltrate as many earthly institutions as possible to spread the seeds of the Lunatic philosophy. As Earthling Buehl Sheadt follows Wawa's every move in this provocative fantasy, thus begins the strangest part of Sheadt's life. He dutifully chronicles how Wawa reaches his wise and witty conclusions through many years of dedicated soul-searching. With his scribe in tow, Wawa continues to expound his theories-befriending some and offending many-while always maintaining the unique position of a "casually interested onlooker" in life. Enjoy this irreverent collection of tongue-in-cheek philosophical musings from an itinerant wise man, on everything from circumcision to Communism, and a multitude of subjects in between.
