The measure of success : uncovering the biblical perspective on women, work, & the home

"Whether you are married or single, young or old, and whether you work inside the home or in the marketplace, Carolyn McCulley and Nora Shank create a rich vision for fulfillment through an understanding of the compelling foundation for the biblical call of productivity. Far from the stone-throwing arguments that often occupy the discussion around women, work, and the home, Carolyn and Nora show how the redemptive message of the gospel allows the Bible's teaching on the role of women to coexist with ambition. It creates a fresh vision for the profit we all gain from encouraging female contribution in the home, society, and church."--P. [4] of cover.

McCulley, Carolyn, 1963-

The blender girl : super-easy, super-healthy meals, snacks, desserts & drinks

"The debut cookbook from the powerhouse blogger behind theblendergirl.com, featuring 100 gluten-free, vegan recipes for smoothies, meals, and more made quickly and easily in a blender. What's your perfect blend? On her wildly popular recipe blog, Tess Masters--aka, The Blender Girl--shares easy plant-based recipes that anyone can whip up fast in a blender. Tess's lively, down-to-earth approach has attracted legions of fans looking for quick and fun ways to prepare healthy food. In The Blender Girl, Tess's much-anticipated debut cookbook, she offers 100 whole-food recipes that are gluten-free and vegan, and rely on natural flavors and sweeteners. Many are also raw and nut-, soy-, corn-, and sugar-free. Smoothies, soups, and spreads are a given in a blender cookbook, but this surprisingly versatile collection also includes appetizers, salads, and main dishes with a blended component, like Fresh Spring Rolls with Orange-Almond Sauce, Twisted Caesar Pleaser, Spicy Chickpea Burgers with Portobello Buns and Greens, and I-Love-Veggies! Bake. And even though many of Tess's smoothies and shakes taste like dessert--Apple Pie in a Glass, Raspberry-Lemon Cheesecake, or Tastes-Like-Ice-Cream Kale, anyone? Her actual desserts are out-of this-world good, from Chocolate-Chile Banana Spilly to Flourless Triple-Pecan Mousse Pie and Chai Rice Pudding. Best of all, every recipe can easily be adjusted to your personal taste: add an extra squeeze of this, another handful of that, or leave something out altogether--these dishes are super forgiving, so you can't mess them up. Details on the benefits of soaking, sprouting, and dehydrating, proper food combining, and eating raw, probiotic-rich, and alkaline ingredients round out this nutrient-dense guide. But you don't have to understand the science of good nutrition to run with The Blender Girl--all you need is a blender and a sense of adventure. So dust off your machine and get ready to find your perfect blend"--

A punch of color : fifty years of painting by Camille Patha

"Throughout her six-decade career, Camille Patha's painting has oscillated between the figurative and the abstract. Patha began painting gestural abstraction in the 1960s then deliberately explored various painting styles, including hard-edged abstraction and surrealist-infused photorealism and, finally, a return to abstraction. During each era of her career, Patha demonstrated a full mastery of painting, presenting canvases that wholly embody her imagery and vocabulary with an unwavering voice and shocking vigor. Patha asserts her power as a painter by creating imagery of a complete universe that enables the viewer to be fully absorbed within a boundless volume. In her paintings, she shares a sense of wonder about the existential conundrums confronting every person and with the exuberance of her elastic symbolism. A Punch of Color is the first retrospective of her work since 1979. Rock Hushka is curator of contemporary and Northwest art and director of curatorial administration at Tacoma Art Museum"--

Pagan Britain

Pagan Britain

Britain's pagan past, with its astonishing number and variety of mysterious monuments, atmospheric sites, enigmatic artefacts, bloodthirsty legends and cryptic inscriptions, has always enthralled and perplexed us. 'Pagan Britain' is a history of religious beliefs from the Old Stone Age to the coming of Christianity. This ambitious book integrates the latest evidence to survey our transformed - and transforming - understanding of early religious behaviour, and, also, the way in which that behaviour has been interpreted in recent times, as a mirror for modern dreams and fears. From the Palaeolithic era to the coming of Christianity and beyond, Hutton reveals the long development, rapid suppression and enduring cultural significance of paganism. Woven into the chronological narrative are numerous case studies of sacred sites both well-known - Stonehenge, Avebury, Seahenge and Maiden Castle - and more unusual far-flung locations across the mainland and coastal islands.

Why the Germans? Why the Jews? : envy, race hatred, and the prehistory of the Holocaust

"A provocative and insightful analysis that sheds new light on one of the most puzzling and historically unsettling conundrums Why the Germans? Why the Jews? Countless historians have grappled with these questions, but few have come up with answers as original and insightful as those of maverick German historian Götz Aly. Tracing the prehistory of the Holocaust from the 1800s to the Nazis' assumption of power in 1933, Aly shows that German anti-Semitism was--to a previously overlooked extent--driven in large part by material concerns, not racist ideology or religious animosity. As Germany made its way through the upheaval of the Industrial Revolution, the difficulties of the lethargic, economically backward German majority stood in marked contrast to the social and economic success of the agile Jewish minority. This success aroused envy and fear among the Gentile population, creating fertile ground for murderous Nazi politics.Surprisingly, and controversially, Aly shows that the roots of the Holocaust are deeply intertwined with German efforts to create greater social equality. Redistributing wealth from the well-off to the less fortunate was in many respects a laudable goal, particularly at a time when many lived in poverty. But as the notion of material equality took over the public imagination, the skilled, well-educated Jewish population came to be seen as having more than its fair share. Aly's account of this fatal social dynamic opens up a new vantage point on the greatest crime in history and is sure to prompt heated debate for years to come"--

The nourished kitchen : farm-to-table recipes for the traditional foods lifestyle : featuring bone broths, fermented vegetables, grass-fed meats, wholesome fats, raw dairy, and kombuchas

"A cookbook from the author of the popular website Nourished Kitchen, featuring 175 recipes based on the 'traditional foods' philosophy of eating, which emphasizes whole grains, dairy, red meat, organ meats, and fermented foods. A traditional foods diet celebrates unrefined, whole, and natural foods while avoiding modern, refined ones, it also seeks to prepare them in the same manner as our ancestors, prior to the industrialization of food. The traditional foods diet, based on the findings of Dr. Weston A. Price's anthropological data from the 1930s, suggests that cultures who subsist on native, unrefined, traditionally-prepared foods enjoy better health (with lower rates of infertility, heart disease, diabetes, and autoimmune disease) than those who consume a diet of processed foods. This cookbook offers a beautifully illustrated treatment of this nutrient-dense cooking style, with wholesome time-tested recipes including restorative bone broths, revitalizing kombuchas and tonics, and hearty and economical bean and lentil dishes. Contrary to nearly all of today's trendy diets, the traditional foods diet is not a restrictive eating style--it focuses on eating diversely and seasonally. It is more inclusive than the paleo diet and shares the environmental and ethical principles of the farm-to-table movement. Practical sidebars include tutorials on infusing honey, making homemade almond flour, preparing a sourdough starter, and rendering poultry fat. Beyond recipes, The Nourished Kitchen also addresses the larger issues of how modern convenience food bypasses traditional culinary wisdom and the critical importance of how food is sourced and prepared for optimal nutrition"--
