♥ Book Title : Angel Children: Those Who Die Before Accountability
☯ Full Synopsis : "Angel Children is a careful presentation of Latter-day Saint doctrine concerning the status of children who pass away before being baptized. It is a compassionate book which brings comfort and consolation through increased understanding to those who read it. the author, Mary V Hill, lost her own child and shares the emotions she felt during that trying period. She deals with aspects of religious life when serious illness develops: effective prayer, faith and healing, priesthood administration, man's appointed time to die, and one's attitude towards death. the subject then shifts to the status of little children after their passing. She shows how little children need no baptism, that they are heirs of the Celestial Kingdom, and that they are redeemed from the temptations of Satan. Life in the Spirit World is discussed, then the resurrection and the status of children following the resurrection is considered. Another chapter is devoted to the status of retarded children here on earth. the author shows that the eternal spirit of a retarded child is not affected by the illness and discusses the eternal plan for such children. Great comfort is found in the final chapter: Overcoming the Challenge. the author tells of the necessity for having a positive attitude, mourning and being comforted, and ends with the reassurance that after much tribulation come the blessings. Angel Children is readable and inspirational. It is also a valuable collection of doctrinal materials on this important subject, including the scriptures and words of instruction and counsel by General Authorities of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Horizon Publishers is pleased to recommend it highly!"Article| Mary V. Hill| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Self-Help, Inc.
☯ Full Synopsis : "Why doesn't self-help help? Millions of people turn to self-improvement when they find that their lives aren't working out quite as they had imagined. The market for self-improvement products - books, audiotapes, life-makeover seminars and regimens of all kinds - is exploding, and there seems to be no end in sight for this trend. In "Self-Help, Inc.: Makeover Culture in American Life", cultural critic Micki McGee asks what our seemingly insatiable demand for self-help can tell us about ourselves at the outset of this new century. The answers are surprising. Rather than finding an America that is narcissistic or self-involved, as others have contended, McGee sees a nation relying on self-help culture for advice on how to cope in an increasingly volatile and competitive work world. For Americans today, a central component of working has become working on themselves. "Be all one can be," they are told. Build your own personal brand. As women have entered the paid labor force in growing numbers, the Protestant work ethic has been augmented by a Romantic imperative that one create a vision - a script - for one's life.; More and more, Americans are compelled to regard themselves in effect as "human capital." No longer simply an enterprising or entrepreneurial individual, the new worker is the artist and the artwork, the "CEO of Me, Inc.," in Tom Peters' memorable phrase, and the central product line. "Self-Help, Inc." reveals how makeover culture traps Americans in endless cycles of self-invention and overwork as they struggle to stay ahead of a rapidly restructuring economic order. A lucid and fascinating treatment of the modern obsession with work and self-improvement, this book will strike a chord with its diagnosis of the self-help trap and with its suggestions for how we can address the alienating conditions of modern work and family life."Article| Micki McGee| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Second Wind
☯ Full Synopsis : "From one of the most original and innovative thinkers in medicine, this “stirring and splendid book” (Wall Street Journal) offers groundbreaking insight to the postwar generation on facing their second coming of age, a developmental opportunity to reshape their lives and our society. Dr. Thomas is at the forefront of a strong nationwide movement to reframe “life after adulthood” as an exciting stage of human growth and development. In Second Wind, he explores the dreams and disappointments, the struggles and triumphs of a generation of 78 million people who once said they would never grow old and never trust anyone over thirty. Instilled with the belief that they would always be Joni Mitchell’s “stardust,” many Boomers are having a harder time transitioning into elderhood than previous generations. But the reality is that every 10.8 seconds an American turns sixty-five. Among all the human beings who have ever lived to see old age, more than half are living among us right now. In Second Wind, Dr. Thomas attempts to guide Boomers into this final developmental stage filled with hope and a new sense of what is possible. As the Post War generation entered adulthood, they saw three models of what an adult could be: hippies, activists, and squares—the “square” model becoming the dominant model. Now, many Boomers now feel “stuck” inside the frenzied, performance-based, money-driven world that no longer suits them. But if they can learn to go slower, go deeper, and be more connected to themselves, their loved ones, and other members of their community, they can find the wisdom, happiness, and fulfillment that comes with a life that is in balance."Article| Dr. Bill Thomas| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Corporate Spirit
☯ Full Synopsis : "In this groundbreaking work, Amanda Porterfield explores the intertwining of commercial and religious forces in the history of incorporation in the US. She focuses on three elements - the revolutionary implications of religious disestablishment, the proliferation of religious organizations,and religious organizations as models of commercial operation.The intersection of the religious and the corporate can be traced to first century Rome, and Paul's letters to Christian Jews in Corinth. "For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many are one body, so is it with Christ." Porterfield traces thisconnection from ancient Rome, through medieval Europe and Elizabethan England. In the second half of the book, she reaches North America and considers Christian corporate fellowship in the years preceding the American Revolution. In the decades following ratification of the US Constitution, religious organizations led the way as models of corporate growth. Eighteenth-century economic and political developments forced American churches to back away from oversight of commercial operations and concentrate more on the formationof individual character, encouraging individuals to transfer to business the lessons of moral responsibility and common purpose learned in church. While commercial outlets faced daunting headwinds as a result of spiraling debt, weak banks, lack of financial regulation, rampant speculation,widespread counterfeiting, and ruinous embargoes, religious organizations set a fast pace of growth and helped many Americans absorb the shocks of economic turbulence by maintaining networks of social support. The privatization of religion enabled advocates for religion to operate more independently and creatively than under religious establishment; this independence fostered innovation, competition, and organizational growth. Left more to their own devices than under British law, religious groups inearly nineteenth-century America enjoyed new freedom as private corporations. This unprecedented autonomy facilitated religious growth and transformation on a massive scale, as religious groups devised new forms of communal governance and discipline, and new means of broadcasting their messagesthrough education, print media technology, public events, and ingenious event-planning. The book's conclusion presents an overview of the development of modern corporations since the late-nineteenth century, highlighting religion's evolution in a society dominated by commercial incorporation."Article| Amanda Porterfield| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Seeking the Promised Land
☯ Full Synopsis : "Mormons have long had an outsized presence in American culture and politics, but they remain largely unknown to most Americans. Recent years have seen the political prominence of Mormons taken to a new level - including the presidential candidacy of Republican Mitt Romney, the prominent involvement of Mormons in the campaign for California's Proposition 8 (anti-gay marriage), and the ascendancy of Democrat Harry Reid to the position of Senate Majority Leader. This book provides the most thorough examination ever written of Mormons' place in the American political landscape - what Mormons are like politically and how non-Mormons respond to Mormon candidates. However, this is a book about more than Mormons. As a religious subculture in a pluralistic society, Mormons are a case study of how a religious group balances distinctiveness and assimilation - a question faced by all faiths."Article| David E.
