Busy: How to Thrive in a World of Too Much

by: Grand Central Publishing

Product rating: 4.2 with 5 reviews


Business psychologist Tony Crabbe outlines a unique four-step approach to combating one of the modern life’s great problems: being too busy.
BUSY is divided into four digestible sections — Mastery, Differentiation, Engagement and Momentum — that will teach readers how to switch from managing time to managing attention, how to transition toward a career strategy that doesn’t hinge on productivity, how to think differently about success by re-engaging with what matters, and how to create the impetus, energy, and clarity to put all these changes into effect. Crabbe draws on entertaining psychological studies to show why we’re getting it wrong at the moment and to develop a fresh new approach to taking back one’s life from chaotic outside forces. Rarely has a book been more timely in both its scope and in its immediate impact.

Can teaching media literacy really change the world? Researchers predict that, in 2015, the average American will spend more than fifteen hours every day listening, reading, clicking, and viewing media. Without question, television, films, radio, and music, the Internet, social media, news programs, and books and magazines are part of our daily lives. 
And while some claim that all of this media consumption is detrimental to society, the truth is it doesn’t have to be. Times have changed. Technology connects us today in new and exciting ways. We have more choices and more control than ever, regarding what and when we will watch, listen to, and read. And, as Julie Smith explains in Master the Media: How Teaching Media Literacy Can Save Our Plugged-in World, with that control comes a heightened level of responsibility to think critically about the content we consume.
Written to help teachers and parents educate the next generation, Master the Media explains the history, purpose, and messages behind the media. The point isn’t to get kids to unplug; it’s to help them make informed choices, understand the difference between truth and lies, and discern perception from reality. Critical thinking leads to smarter decisions-and it’s why media literacy can save the world.

Book Title:

Ten Men of the Bible: How God Used Imperfect People to Change the World

by: Thomas Nelson

Product rating: 5.0 with 1 reviews


The men depicted in the Bible were not perfect by any means. We find story after story marked by scandal, failure, and intrigue. Yet we also find many stories of men who were able to look beyond their circumstances, completely trust in the Lord, and follow Him wherever He chose to them. Like us, these men made both good and bad decisions along the way—and experienced both good and bad consequences—and we find our struggles and hopes in the pages of the Bible that tells their stories.

In this 10-session workbook, Max Lucado tells some of his favorite stories of these men in the Bible. Stories include:

 

  1. Noah: When You’re Low on Hope
  2. Job: The Most Famous Conversation in the Bible
  3. Jacob: Wrestling with the Past
  4. Moses: The Voice from the Mop Bucket
  5. David: Colossal Collapses
  6. Joseph: Unanswered Questions
  7. Matthew: Friend of Flops
  8. Peter: The Gospel of the Second Chance
  9. Lazarus: The Final Witness
  10. Paul: Don’t Write Off Anyone

 

Each session includes five insights on each character and Bible study questions to help you delve into the stories and apply them to your life.

Book Title:

Beyond Resistance: The Institutional Church Meets the Postmodern World

by: Exploration Pres

Product rating: 5.0 with 1 reviews


Beyond Resistance is a template for those devoted to the the idea that faith should be just, generous and inspire commitment to the common good. The rise of postmodernity and its influence on the expression of faith are not the cause of religion’s perceived diminishment in capacity, relevance, and impact. To the contrary, both the Institutional Church and those who hold faith in a postmodern key can—and should—be allies in a common cause. What is unfolding is nothing short of a second Reformation, and this Reformation (unlike the previous one) can unite both the change agents and the changing institution as partners on the same playing field. This book addresses the realities faced by what too many have called a dying institution. It is a call to move the institutional church out of a modality of denial and into a perspective of hope; out of a paradigm of scarcity and into a world of possibility with a growing multiplicity of options and allies; out of a time of end-game scenarios where only the fit will survive, and into what James Carse calls an “Infinite Game,” where those who play ensure that the game continues long after they have left the field.
