John was sure of himself. So sure that as a small-town teenager from Arizona, fresh out of high school, he wanted nothing more than to be among the elite who call themselves the Marines. Eager to serve his country, he walks into the local recruiting station, a young boy with idealistic and quixotic military dreams. But his indoctrination into the separate world of non-civilian life would prove daunting and confusing, bringing him to a new reality. He’s forced into manhood before his time, transforming quickly into a “hardened Marine” intent on survival. In Life Beyond the Scope, author John Wesley Heide shares a gripping tale of war and all its ugliness, of expectations shattered and of a homeland that becomes foreign soil to this Vietnam veteran. Will he break? Will the pressures both at home and abroad combined with the harsh realities of war prove too much to bear? Or will he be among the few “lucky” ones, the war-weary veterans who physically make it out alive yet try painstakingly to come to terms with the post-traumatic stress disorder that consumes their daily life? We travel along with John for the “journey” -- from boot camp to combat to the ultimate scars war leaves behind. And ultimately, through the critical lens of a veteran, we glance into the future.

An encouraging, inspirational, spirit-filled, and at times, funny book that highlights Tonia's real life-changing experiences. This memoir will take the reader on a military and spiritual journey where Tonia traveled the country as a member of the military, a singer and a dancer. She encountered many bumps in the road, as well as exhilarating experiences. She could not believe she was about to experience her "it" moment, dancing with Bones or getting selected for that prestigious entertainment group, Air Force Tops in Blue. Her journey also entails many adversities and obstacles, but she did not allow them to impede or stifle her plans, hopes and dreams. Instead, she used them as a springboard to catapult her to bigger and greater things, such as getting promoted to Chief Master Sergeant in less than 20 years and living a more peaceful and spirit-filled life. Tonia knew that with God all things are possible and eventually relied on the religious foundations she received as a child. She recognized the joy that can be realized from serving God. She also uses the Trinity Approach, The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost to help her overcome and achieve the victory. In spite of illnesses, divorce, racism, sexual harassment, and verbal abuse, she continues to live her life beyond adversities.

Under The Big Top

Under the Big Top examines the immensely popular big tent revivals of turn-of-the-twentieth-century America and develops a new framework for understanding Protestantism in this transformative period of the nation's history. Contemporary critics of the revivalists often depicted them as anxious and outdated religious opponents of a modern, urban nation. Early historical accounts likewise portrayed tent revivalists as Victorian hold-outs, bent on re-establishing nineteenth-century values and religion in a new America. In this revisionist work, Josh McMullen argues that, contrary to these stereotypes, big tent revivalists actually participated in the shift away from Victorianism and helped in the construction of a new consumer culture in the United States. How did the United States became the most consumer-driven and yet one of the most religious societies in the western world? McMullen shows that revivalists and their audiences reconciled the Protestant ethic of salvation with the emerging consumer ethos by cautiously unlinking Christianity from Victorianism and joining it to the new, emerging consumer culture. Under the Big Top helps to explain the continued appeal of both the therapeutic and the salvific worldview to many Americans as well as the ambivalence that accompanies this combination.

As everyone knows, God created mankind to his image (Genesis 01:27). What mankind does not know is that God did not create man on Earth, but rather on MARS! When Mars could not sustain life anymore, mankind had to escape the planet and colonized Earth. Many years later, a study was written about the survival of mankind in Sol Four (Mars) and its struggle in Sol Three (Earth). We proved to be a species that has survived wars, slavery and other forms of abuse -- always holding on to our faith in God. "Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. I will admit when I was first approached with the idea of this book it offset me. I am not religious. However, this book combines religion, science, and human nature and thought into a very lovely collection of stories and tales. I found that I enjoyed hearing about how human kind still holds principals so close to their heart. And it gave me hope for the future." Book Review: Under The Thelian Sky by Toni G. Sinns

Being Gorgeous

Author : Jacki Willson

Being Gorgeous explores the ways in which extravagance, flamboyance and dressing up can open up possibilities for women to play around anarchically with familiar stereotypical tropes of femininity. This is protest through play - a pleasurable misbehaviour that reflects a feminism for the twenty first century. Willson discusses how, whether through pastiche, parody, or pure pleasure, artists, artistes and indeed the spectators themselves can operate in excess of the restrictive images which saturate our visual culture. By referring to a wide spectrum of examples, including Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette, Matthew Barney, Dr Sketchy's, Audacity Chutzpah, Burly Q and Carnesky's Ghost Train, Being Gorgeous demonstrates how contemporary female performers embody, critique and thoroughly relish their own representation by inappropriately re-appropriating femininity.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Surfing icon Laird Hamilton offers inspiration to anyone who wants to elevate their ordinary, landlocked lives to do extraordinary things. “When Laird Hamilton surfs, you must watch. When he speaks, I listen. And when he writes a book, I’m damn sure gonna read it. Twice.”—Eddie Vedder, Grammy Award–winning lead vocalist of Pearl Jam Millions of us increasingly seek happiness in fads and self-help books, reaching upward every day toward some enlightened state that we wish to attain. Laird Hamilton is more intent on looking inward and appreciating the brilliant creatures we already are. In Liferider, Laird uses five key pillars—Death & Fear, Heart, Body, Soul, and Everything Is Connected—to illustrate his unique worldview and life practices. This is Laird Hamilton in his own words—raw, honest, and unvarnished—on topics he has rarely explored before. Based on extensive interviews and conversations between Laird and his coauthor, Julian Borra, with additional insights from Laird’s wife, pro-volleyball player Gabby Reece, Liferider takes on human resilience, relationships, business, technology, risk-taking, and the importance of respecting the natural world, all through the lens of Laird’s extraordinary life both in and beyond the ocean. Praise for Liferider “Laird is a hero, if you want him to be. That’s up to your perception. He challenges himself, and he challenges those around him. He shows us that the deeper we puncture into life, the more vibrant the colors get. The Laird Hamilton I know—real, faulty, moody, deeply loving, and communal—comes through on every page of Liferider.”—Josh Brolin, Award-Winning Actor “Laird Hamilton is a true individualist unafraid to carve his own path. These thoughtful mediations offer a unique window — illuminating and inspiring — into one of America's great innovators.”—Rory Kennedy, Documentary Filmmaker
