Books Description:

Megan Rapinoe est une des athlètes les plus marquantes de la scène sportive mondiale. En parallèle de son succès professionnel sur les terrains de foot, elle est aussi devenue une icône et un modèle pour des millions de personnes en s’exprimant avec courage sur les enjeux sociétaux les plus importants. Élevée dans une petite ville conservatrice du nord de la Californie, benjamine d’une fratrie de six enfants, Megan Rapinoe a quatre ans lorsqu’elle tape dans son premier ballon. Son talent pour ce sport est une évidence. Si ses parents encouragent son amour pour le foot, ils l’incitent également à s’engager auprès des plus démunis. Son enfance, aux côtés de sa sœur jumelle adorée Rachael, est marquée par la tragique addiction à la drogue de son frère Brian. Militante dans l’âme, elle est la première joueuse de football à faire son coming-out dans les médias en 2012, puis en 2016, elle n’hésite pas à s’agenouiller pendant l’hymne nationale en soutien au joueur Colin Kaepernick, parti en guerre contre les discriminations raciales et les violences policières. Son refus public et catégorique de se rendre à la Maison Blanche après la victoire à la Coupe du monde 2019 a fait couler beaucoup d’encre, tout comme l’action en justice qu’elle a intentée avec ses coéquipières contre la fédération américaine de football pour obtenir une rémunération égale à celle de l’équipe masculine. Férocement anti-Trump, elle a apporté son soutien à Joe Biden dans la course à la Maison Blanche. Comme elle l’a déclaré après la victoire au mondial de l’équipe américaine à New York en 2019 : « C’est notre responsabilité de rendre le monde meilleur. » Traduit de l’anglais (États-Unis) par Marguerite Capelle et Hélène Cohen

Books Description:

Did you ever ask yourself whether you have lived before? Did you ask where or when? If you already believe in reincarnation, read this fascinating story from prehistoric Egypt about a previous life of the author that begins before birth and ends after death. This was the life of a priestess and pharaoh approx. 6000 years ago when Egypt was at its prime and the priesthood enlightened. It’s an inspirational tale, and you cannot help wondering - why is our world not a better place? And if you don’t believe in reincarnation – why not read the story and get to know a nearly Utopian society and ask yourself again: Is it really impossible that this did happen? And is it not possible that it may happen again? Memories of Joan Grant’s historical novels from past lives and Elisabeth Haich’s spiritual classic: “Initiation” come back to life. Joan Grant was the first to develop her gift of “far memory” into a form of reincarnation therapy with her psychiatrist husband, a therapy which is now popular worldwide.

What is the “Christian life” all about? Studying the Bible, attending church, cultivating a prayer life, witnessing to others—those are all good. But is that really what Jesus has in mind? The answer, says Scot McKnight in One.Life, lies in Jesus’ words, “Follow me.” What does it look like to follow Jesus, and how will doing so change the way we live our life—our, our, our, our, our—everything about our life. One.Life will open your eyes to the full, compelling immensity of what it means to be a Christian. “Jesus offers to us a kingdom dream that transforms us to the very core of our being,” says Scot McKnight. “His vision is so big we are called to give our entire life to it. His vision is so big it swallows up our dreams.” Discover exactly what Jesus meant when he announced the arrival of God’s kingdom. Equipping you with a new understanding of that kingdom’s radical nature, One.Life shares profound, challenging, and practical insights on how to demonstrate its reality in your life. In many ways, what The Cost of Discipleship by Bonhoeffer challenged Christians to do in earlier generations, One.Life will do for a new generation. One.Life will call you beyond the flatlands of religiosity toward a kingdom vision that will shape everything you do.

Books Description:

“I would follow this man anywhere his words want to take us,” writes Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, in praise of Mark Nepo and The One Life We’re Given. “His voice helps us find pathways where we might have believed that no pathway could possibly exist.” “Mark Nepo is a national treasure,” says Rev. Ed Bacon, author of Eight Habits of Love. Now, Nepo—popular spiritual teacher and #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awakening—crafts a new road map for the soul’s journey.

How exciting it feels to learn about something that is brand new, yet makes total sense: why hasn’t this been around before? We all remember some of these decisive moments, like hearing for the first time about the possibility of making free phone calls on a service called Skype. Or being able to share videos with everyone on YouTube. Or seeing prototypes of self-driving, or even flying cars, humanoid robots, or hearing Google assistant make a phone call to book an appointment at the hairdresser. The ban on cigarettes in public spaces was another such break-through. Learning about something that will change the way we have been doing certain things in one way for decades is exhilarating, perhaps fear inducing too.

Books Description:

One of the biggest questions facing all of us is this: Is God for me? Whilst the world around us may so no, 'One Life' shows us the answer can be truly yes. As one ancient theologian put it, "God became what he was not so that we might become what he is." God has shown us that he is for us by doing something truly astonishing. He has become one of us. This punchy and challenging book aims to provide us with a deeper understanding of Jesus himself. Phil Moore, explains six aspects of Jesus' life and what it means for us: He became flesh; He lived among us; He died a violent death; He rose from the dead; He sat down in heaven; He is coming back.

Books Description:

George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) made her fictional debut when SCENES OF CLERICAL LIFE appeared in 'Blackwood's Magazine' in 1857. These stories contain Eliot's earliest studies of what became enduring themes in her great novels: the impact of religious controversy and social change in provincial life, and the power of love to transform the lives of individual men and women. 'Adam Bede' was soon to appear and bring George Eliot fame and fortune. In the meantime the SCENES won acclaim from a discerning readership including Charles Dickens: ' I hope you will excuse my writing to you to express my admiration...The exquisite truth and delicacy, both of the humour and the pathos of those stories, I have never seen the like of.'

Books Description:

There is no doubt that the events of 12 March 1993, which took place at Bombay, were the ghastliest of events. It is also wrong to directly connect the events of 12 March 1993 with the demolition of Babri Masjid on 06 December 1992. The events of 12 March 1993 took place only because of the partial treatment meted out to the Muslims of Bombay, by the State, during the riots which took place after the demolition of the Babri Masjid on 06 December 1992. In the name of investigations of the 12 March 1993 case, the entire community was targeted. We Indians were made to believe that the accused from 12 March 1993 were dealt with justice. Being associated with the case as an accused made me wonder as to how the judiciary did all these things while delivering justice. I would not have found all these wonders, had I got a job as an Islamic Finance Consultant, but for the need of a passport, as it was outside of India. Passports were granted by the State even to those who stood convicted in the same case for far more serious charges than mine. I took it to be the desire of the Supreme Power to narrate the injustice done in this case.

Annotation "In this book, the authors compare the demography of the Taiwanese town Lugang and the Dutch town Nijmegen using data on the lifes of thousands of their inhabitants. The period covered is approximately 1850 to 1945. First, the standard demographic rates on nuptiality, fertility and mortality are calculated to test the Malthusian predictions on a so called 'positive' and a 'preventive' demographic regime, Next, the authors try to disentangle the individual rationality behind aggregated measures in order to find out how the inhabitants of the two towns used the one life they had. Unaware of each others existence, the people living in Nijmegen and Lugang had more in common than one would expect given the huge cultural differences."--BOOK JACKET.

Books Description:

B.K.S. Iyengar--hailed as "the Michelangelo of yoga" (BBC) and considered by many to be one of the most important yoga masters--has spent much of his life introducing the modern world to the ancient practice of yoga. Yoga's popularity is soaring, but its widespread acceptance as an exercise for physical fitness and the recognition of its health benefits have not been matched by an understanding of the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development that the yogic tradition can also offer. In Light on Life, B.K.S. Iyengar brings readers this new and more complete understanding of the yogic journey. Here Iyengar explores the yogic goal to integrate the different parts of the self (body, emotions, mind, and soul), the role that the yoga postures and breathing techniques play in our search for wholeness, the external and internal obstacles that keep us from progressing along the path, and how yoga can transform our lives and help us to live in harmony with the world around us. For the first time, Iyengar uses stories from his own life, humor, and examples from modern culture to illustrate the profound gifts that yoga offers. Written with the depth of this sage's great wisdom, Light on Life is the culmination of a master's spiritual genius, a treasured companion to his seminal Light on Yoga.

Books Description:

You have only one life. Open your eyes, and live your life today; tomorrow will come anyway. Make a choice, and you will get a chance. In One Life, the author, Saim A. Khan, reaches out to people who have dreams but not the key to achieving them, the will but not the path to success, the strength but not the confidence needed to succeed. Most of all, he seeks to connect with people who have life but are merely existing rather than living. In todays intellectual environment, most relevant topics and concerns are overpowered by certain mind-sets, a process that suppresses free will and independent thinking. Khan hopes to help loosen the grip of this environment and allow readers to bloom according to their own potential. He explores various aspects of individualism and happiness and considers how you can find and secure them, using methods that work best for you. Taking a conversational approach, this book offers reflections designed to help you discover happiness, well-being, and peace in your own suitable way.
