The Old order changeth Yielding Place to new Lest one good custom Should corrupt the world Alfred, Lord Tennyson SHADOW BOXING WITH THE GODS is a tour through many traditions and beliefs in the history of Man, to arrive at the truths we recognize today. It is a book of aggressive but persistently rational thought, which deconstructs the beliefs and theologies that have accompanied mankind from the earliest times and often controlled human destinies. While many of these beliefs help people to find meaning to the great mystery of life, they nevertheless crave to be understood in the context of our modern environment. Based on the core truth that the greatest ideas, if carried to extremes, can become ridiculous and hurt people, the book traces the diverse strands of human belief in various civilizations, starting with fantasy and myth-making. Ideas about life, divinity, nature and community, have enriched existence but have also caused mayhem and tyranny through blind beliefs that fed fundamentalism and terror. The Nazi holocaust, the burning of witches and heretics at the stake, the indignity of widowhood and caste practices in India, were all the result of beliefs that overpowered the minds of large sections of people. Today, more than ever before, we are equipped with science, reason and information, to embrace the spiritual and the humane, while freeing ourselves from the clutches of superstition and ignorance – thus achieving a far deeper understanding about our individual and collective existence.

The Dynamic 2-5-14 Strategy to Defeat the Darkness Within "This book is for the tired, the defeated, the frustrated, and the ashamed. For the hurt and broken, those walking in powerlessness and fear. For all who have found truth but are failing miserably at living it. For those walking in bondage and limitations imposed by forces over which they seem to have no control. For those secretly wondering why their lives don't portray the overcoming reality God has purposed. For those to whom it seems a strong unseen hand holds them to a course they feel incapable of changing." (From Chaper 1) The 2-5-14 strategy gives answers to the 2 ways the enemy has access to your life, the 5 doors to legal ground that gives Satan his rights and the 14 spirits that are the roots of common human problems."

When Hell's neighbor disappears she sets out across the city in search of the woman. In the course of her quest, she falls in love with a bank robber, confronts her own dark memories, and ends up saving more than just her missing neighbor. What is on the surface a crime novel is actually a haunting dual portrait of a city and a woman caught up in times of change and transition. This debut novel in English combines Parei's tight prose with a compulsive delight in detail that dynamically evokes many lost and overlooked corners of Berlin.

When a child is disabled, it affects the entire family. Whether blind, autistic, or ADHD, the mentally and physically disabled child calls for constant care, resulting in other children being shoved aside or called upon for extra support. Siblings often know each other longer than they will know their own parents, and able siblings are most often turned to for help with their disabled siblings from a young age into adulthood. What are the emotional effects of these children who were forced to care for their disabled siblings? Dr. Peggy Boone conducted a study to explore the long-lasting effects and problems within disabled families. When she questioned able siblings, she found guilt, anger, and sadness. These children, now adults, understand that their childhoods were full of a responsibility and shame that are not typical. Dr. Boone uses Jungian archetypes to explore the different ways siblings deal with their placement within disabled families. These innate types of behavior become a way for able siblings to measure all of their experiences, beliefs, and ideas. Whether the role of Warrior, Victim, Rescuer, or Martyr, these archetypes furnish basic patterns and instincts of behavior that may have enabled the siblings to become normally functioning adults despite the struggle against lingering shadows. Each archetype is full of personal anecdotes from able siblings in an effort to better understand the emotional impact on these families. Shadow Boxing: Siblings of the Disabled will furnish a model for siblings and parents who must deal with the discrepancy between conventional families and their own realities.

From the author of Paper Lion Stepping into the ring against light-heavyweight champion Archie Moore, George Plimpton pauses to wonder what ever induced him to become a participatory journalist. Bloodied but unbowed, he holds his own in the bout – and brings back this timeless book on boxing and its devotees, among them Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, Ernest Hemingway, and Norman Mailer. Shadow Box is one of Plimpton’s most engaging portraits of professional sport seen through the eyes of an inquisitive and astute hopeful. From the gym, the locker room, the ringside, and even in the harsh glare of the ring itself, Plimpton documents what it truly means to be a boxer in some of the finest writing of his career.
