Few decisions in life are as important as choosing what we fuel our bodies with several times a day. Choosing a healthy dietary regimen is made much more difficult because of the seemingly conflicting and confusing dietary advice available to consumers. My promise to you? Offer a simple, effective, easy to follow solution to this dilemma. To identify the best eating plan on the planet, one needs to start with a clean slate and follow the lead of science. It's also imperative to understand that no single plan is best for everyone, and it must take into account individual and genetically predetermined differences. Years of full-time, dedicated scientific research and 33 years of experience has led to discovering the "common denominator" in successfully eating for health, wellness, and longevity. The shared trait is a diet steeped in body-familiar, nutrient-dense foods. It's just as important to avoid foods that are incongruous with our dietary past, especially foods that are genetically altered, processed, or contain preservatives. The "solution" is the Healthy Dynamic Living (HDL) Nutrition Plan. The HDL Nutrition Plan is not just another diet, rather a nutrition based lifestyle designed to promote healthy aging and ultimate wellness. The advice in this guide doesn't rely solely on Paleolithic principles for its lifestyle-management recommendations. It blends healthy eating practices from successful modern cultures and cutting-edge science to create a truly comprehensive nutrition "how-to" manual.
This beginner's guide to the Bible is based on the author's experience teaching the Bible for over 20 years. The persons and incidents in the Old Testament that you must know to understand God's revelation of himself and his will to the people of Israel (and to us) are highlighted. Readers will discover promises God made to his people (despite their faithlessness), fulfilling most of them in Christ Himself. Themes and events in the New Testament are seen in an important light - as reinforcements and enlargements of themes from the Old Testament. Written by an Episcopalian priest but the message is aimed at a broad audience by concentrating on the basics of the Christian faith. ENDORSEMENTS: Father Furrer has provided us with a true handbook - what the ancients called an Enchiridion - of the Christian faith. In the tradition of the apoloA--gists he has anticipated the questions, doubts and confusions which can and do arise in human minds on so many points of doctrine. This is a fine book which will serve well in both parish and private study. ~ Edward F. Duffy Pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Fairfield, CT Adjunct Professor of NT Greek at Hartford Seminary Canon Furrer has combined his pastoral and academic knowledge into a simple and practical book for the Christian and non-Christian reader in search of knowing what the Bible is all about and its relevance to the twenty-first century. I recommend it for all who desire to understand the Bible in historiA--cal, social and ethical contexts. ~ The Rt. Rev. Josiah Idowu-Fearon, PhD Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Kaduna, Nigeria In a clear and straightforward style, Furrer lays out the major biblical themes, inserting commentary and scripture quotations so as never to stray far from the actual text. Each chapter ends with useful questions for reflection. This is a book you can give to someone looking for guidance with confidence that they will find the guidance they need. ~ Rev. Christopher Webber Author of A Year with American Saints (and other books) ABOUT THE AUTHOR: The Rev. Canon Tom Furrer has served in parish ministry in the Epis-copal Diocese of Connecticut since 1986. He is currently the Rector of Trinity Church in Tariffville. He is also President of Kateri Medical Services, Inc., a non-profit corporation which funds and facilitates baA--sic health care for residents of rural villages in Nigeria. All proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the ministry of providing simple, decent and affordable health care for the rural poor in Nigeria.
The twenty-first century has seen an increased awareness of the forms of environmental destruction that cannot immediately be seen, localised or, by some, even acknowledged.
Ecocriticism on the Edge explores the possibility of a new mode of critical practice, one fully engaged with the destructive force of the planetary environmental crisis. Timothy Clark argues that, in literary and cultural criticism, the "Anthropocene", which names the epoch in which human impacts on the planet's ecological systems reach a dangerous limit, also represents a threshold at which modes of interpretation that once seemed sufficient or progressive become, in this new counterintuitive context, inadequate or even latently destructive. The book includes analyses of literary works, including texts by Paule Marshall, Gary Snyder, Ben Okri, Henry Lawson, Lorrie Moore and Raymond Carver.
Table of Contents Introduction Chapter 1: Own Less, Live Best Intentionality for Minimalist Lifestyle Chapter 2: Benefits of Minimalism Chapter 3: Getting Your Life Back Becoming a Minimalist Other Ways to Maximize Life Minimalism in Homes Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction Minimalism is a way of living that cuts the gluttony surrounding our world. It is the exact opposite of what we see in ads, what we hear on the radio, or what commercials air on TV. It contrasts what our society has etched on our minds regarding the claimed importance of accumulating stuff. It tells us to dismiss ourselves from consumerism, instead of priding ourselves for all our material possessions, the clutters in our environment, the skyrocketing debts, and an abundance of infinite distractions. People are joining the craze of the material world and we are left with a meaningless one. People are crazy over lots of stuff, with closets full of clothes, racks full of shoes, garages stacked with useless gears, basements cluttered with boxes of what seems like hoarding of old items. They are living the typical life: working hard to make good money, spend a great chunk on it to pay for mortgage, buy fancy clothes, and keep up with friends who have luxury cars, or get a hand of cool technology which are seen as bragging rights. It is hard to see and realize that we do not need any of these, and that life is more meaningful when there are no people to impress, that we do not have to spend so much on stuff we don't need just to make us happy, and that a rise in pay wouldn't necessarily mean a rise in cost of living. It takes a turning point to make people aware that they are losing themselves over their material possessions. And this point could be achieved by the continuous effort of dissenters who encourage a simpler, less materialist life. Living a minimalist lifestyle means throwing out what you do not need and focus only on those that you need. We only need little to survive while still living happily. We only need the small things to keep content in our hearts. The stuff that surround us are only depictions of materialism, and the society telling us that we have to consume more of it is just a way of luring us into consumerism. These things do not matter and do not account for our own happiness.
