BOOK of MORMON: THE BIGGER PICTURE isn't just a simple synopsis of stories from the Book of Mormon supplemented by interesting commentaries, but in the bigger scheme of things, it shows a much "bigger picture" of the Book of Mormon filled with an array of aids to help us reach a better over-all understanding of the Book of Mormon and pique our interest in this important book of scripture. It includes fascinating sidebars on the Hill Cumorah, on historical metal plates from ancient civilizations, on age-old Middle Eastern cultural oddities, and the fascinating Semitic linguistics that Joseph Smith couldn't possibly have been familiar with. It also contains pertinent special quotes from Joseph Smith, Oliver Cowdery, Parley P. Pratt, as well as many of our modern day prophets, and even Abraham Lincoln. It continually points out the many evidences that preclude Joseph Smith having fabricated this special Book.

In The Mysterious Chinese Book of Everything, eleven stories deliver a unique, sometimes tender, often laugh-out-loud glimpse into one man's evolution from a strict Catholic upbringing in Midwestern America to an experimental and unorthodox adulthood oceans away. Whether it's a nostalgic story of the first-time, drop-your-drawers physical of a terrified teenage boy, or the fanciful tale of his efforts to stump Dr. Ng's mysterious Chinese volume, the adventures of author Tim Casart are familiar enough to kindle our own coming-of-age memories and offbeat enough to capture our imagination. Casart's entertaining collection reflects one man's, and maybe every man's, valiant attempt to make an extraordinary life out of the ordinary.

A celebration of failures, doom, disaster, mistakes, miscalculations, hubris, folly and really, really bad albums. Written by the author of the cult hit, Crap Towns. Most books celebrate the exceptions rather than the rule. They focus on the over-achievers, the unique and strange success stories. They don't provide a fair reflection of the general tide of history - but they do make your average reader feel, well, more average. The 10 Worst of Everything redresses this imbalance and shows that you maybe shouldn't take it too badly if your own plans aren't working out. And there's nearly always someone worse off than you. Which is reassuring, if nothing else. This is a fascinating compendium of disappointing facts about the world, vital information about places to avoid, mind-boggling information about medicine, history and science, pop culture misses, as well as all the daft things we do to each other. It will help to prove the old adage that you can always learn more from failure than you can from success. And hey, even if you don't want to boost your brain, there's still the fun of watching other people go wrong.
A Book of Poems Curtis Robbins ... the percepts of being human—it seeks an understanding of the bigger picture— our own senses and sensibilities.
Author: Curtis Robbins
For centuries, people have loved tales shared by poets—Homer, Chaucer, and many others. In the late nineteenth century, people were mesmerized by the tales of traversing the Bush Country of Australia as told meticulous detail by a deaf poet named Henry Lawson. In this collection of verses, poet Curtis Robbins—who is himself deaf—shares a tale of a group whom very few hearing people know about or understand. The poems in this collection present a story told daily among deaf people. They focus on the details and moment-to-moment experiences of what it’s like to be a normal deaf person. Robbins explores the conflicts faced among deaf people, with hearing people, and on our own. He examines the inhibitions and exhibitions that are characteristically ingrained into the lives of deaf people. He also considers the work of deaf Australian poet Henry Lawson, celebrating his legacy. In this collection of verse, Robbins seeks to embellish, ostracize, epitomize, chastise, advocate, and reflect upon his own observations, thoughts, and visions about what it is about being deaf—without ever resorting to be invective but rather exonerating those realities.

IT'LL TAKE MORE THAN ANGELS AND DEMONS TO STOP HIM. Reporter Spencer Finch is a journalist embroiled in the hunt for a missing book, encountering along the way cat burglars and mobsters, hackers and mysterious monks. At the same time, he's trying to make sense of the legacy left him by his late grandfather, a chest of what appear to be pulp magazines from the golden age of fantasy fiction. Following his nose, Finch gradually uncovers a mystery involving a lost Greek play, secret societies, generations of masked vigilantes - and an entire hidden history of mankind.

Author: Dennis Waite
Publisher: John Hunt Publishing
A comprehensive, yet entertaining introduction to Advaita, the non-dual philosophy which provides a completely reasonable explanation for who we are and the nature of the universe. There are many self-help approaches promising enlightenment and happiness but most are illogical and lack any proven capability. Advaita has a guru-disciple tradition stretching back for several thousand years and can guarantee the sincere seeker a progressive path to self-realization. A 21st Century treatment of this ancient eastern philosophy, this book addresses all of the issues that are covered by both traditional teachers from the lineage of Shankara and by modern satsang teaching and Direct Path methods stemming from Ramana Maharshi and Krishna Menon. Topics are explained in an accessible and readable manner, using amusing quotations and stories along with an abundance of metaphors from a wide variety of sources.

You have a combat position ... in the battle of words between a master author—and his rival. An inconceivable setting. A discovery. A betrayal. A war. A forfeit. A modification. An unimaginable battle. From ancient history ... to the Final Chapters “In The Book of Told, K A Gunn blends lived experience with metahistory, tragedy with punning, technology and theology. Her story has too much life in it to be simple allegory, and reads as an extended meditation on the phrase, ‘in the beginning was the Word.’ Literary criticism is turned inside out, and it is possible that your life might be also.” —Pastor R.D. Driver-Burgess, MTh Brew discovers he is a single word in The Book of Told, written by an author he cannot see. This is the catalyst for a series of curious secrets, which draw him unwillingly into the greatest battle literarily fought—the Battle of Words. Sabotaged by a rival understudy within his own story, the author—Leonard Told—must use what Words he can to create the most powerful statement ever declared! Brew’s character must stand up to the rival’s genius and salvage Told’s reputation by garnering him all-time bestselling status. What (kind of) word are you in this story?
