Embrace off-grid green living with a new edition of the bestselling classic guide to a more sustainable way of life from the father of self-sufficiency. For over 40 years, John Seymour has inspired thousands to make more responsible, enriching, and eco-friendly choices with his advice on living sustainably. The Self-Sufficient Life and How to Live It offers step-by-step instructions on everything from chopping trees to harnessing solar power; from growing fruit and vegetables, and preserving and pickling your harvest, to baking bread, brewing beer, and making cheese. Seymour shows you how to live off the land, running your own smallholding or homestead, keeping chickens, and raising (and butchering) livestock. In a world of mass production, intensive farming, and food miles, Seymour's words offer an alternative: a celebration of the joy of investing time, labor, and love into the things we need. While we can't all be able to move to the countryside, we can appreciate the need to eat food that has been grown ethically or create things we can cherish, using skills that have been handed down through generations. With refreshed, retro-style illustrations and a brand-new foreword by Alice Waters, this new edition of Seymour's classic title is a balm for anyone who has ever sought solace away from the madness of modern life.

Why Do We Live? A Simple Answer to a Complex Question is an analytical book that prompts readers to think about the realities of life. It was written to make us understand the complexities around us and to see through the complex behavior of different groups of people. Author B. P. Pai researched many different faiths, only to discover different answers to the same basic questions. The existence of thousands of concepts of Gods and rituals made me to go into the basic question as to why there are different answers to the same enquiry. The author also asks why people fight when both sides have relatively same answer. This motivated me to go deep into the various misconceptions that create disturbance in the world, Pai says. Born in India, B. P. Pai has been a student of religion his whole life. After earning degrees in economics, philosophy and business management, he worked with the National Airline of India for 38 years and in Maryland in the USA for 15 years. Now retired, he lives with his wife in Farmington Hills, Michigan. He is working on his next book. Publisher's website: http: //

The proportion of elderly people continues to increase in the western world-nearly a quarter of the population will be over 65 years by the year 2050. Since aging is accompanied by an increase in diseases and by a deterioration in well-being, finding solutions to these social, medical and psychological problems is necessarily a major goal for society. Scientists and medical practitioners are therefore faced with the urgent task of increasing basic knowledge of the biological processes that cause aging. More resources must be put into this research in order to achieve better understanding of the cellular mechanisms that underlie the differences in life span between species and to answer the difficult questions of why some individuals age more quickly than others, and why some develop liver problems, some have heart problems, and others brain problems. The results of such a wide program of research will provide important information about the causes of many life-threatening and/ or debilitating diseases of old age; it will help find ways to prevent some of the ailments that result from aging, and it may well lead to discoveries enabling the prolongation of human life.

It is amazing what God has done for us, how overwhelming this is, how unrestricted it is, and how it upsets every natural principle upon which we depend and naturally build our lives. In Living in Freedom, author James G. Groth shares an understanding of God's grace, the new covenant, and the role they play in our lives by exploring: • the current world situation and the impact it has on our lives; • the differences and purpose of the covenants and how they affect our lives today; • the problem of basing our lives on our concepts of good and evil; • the historical, conceptual, personal, and relational aspects of the new covenant ; • the mixing the lifestyles of law and grace; and • the concept of forgiveness. Groth also considered what it means to be a new creation, to be born again, and the consequences which take us into a life of freedom, as well as what it means to live by the spirit rather than by the letter of the law. He examines 1 John 1:9 and explains it in context with the times, the struggle of cults, and in the context of Paul's letters. Living in Freedom addresses the true meaning of salvation and encourages Christians to walk in their faith to attain that salvation.

Deanna Shapiro looks back at the Jewish immigrant family that shaped her with honesty, understanding, forgiveness, and admiration. Moving with ease and grace between poetry and prose, she addresses familiar themes of immigrant life, such as uprooting, sacrifice, loyalty and the pull and push of assimilation, through a uniquely personal and gendered lens. Gail Reimer Executive Director Jewish Womens Archive Deanna Shapiros latest book, The Place You Live In: A Multigenerational Immigrant Story, is the perfect blend between prose narrative and poetry. Shapiros stunning skill for poetry complements the story of her grandparents journey from Galicia to the Lower East Side of New York City. The book also tells the tale of the familys life in the Bronx and the Catskill Mountains in the 1940s and 1950s. As a descendant of immigrants, readers can easily identify with both the pathos and humor of Shapiros familys story. Its a book to be read and savored slowly, like a tasty home cooked meal. Sandra Stillman Gartner Co-author of To Life! A Celebration of Vermont Jewish Women In this lovingly written memoir, Deanna Shapiro, recalls the perspective of a quiet child in a large, outspoken family, navigating America in the mid-20th century from Tar Beach in the Bronx to False Porch in the Catskills. The complexities of immigration, ambition, and tradition are played out in prose and poetry, the family portrayed with personality and imagery, revealed by Shapiro within a culture of small comforts. Judith Chalmer Author of Out of Historys Junk Jar Deanna Shapiro did the family research many of us only talk about doing. Sharing her very personal memories and reflections of family members and family dynamics in a wonderful balance of narrative and poetry, Deanna takes us into the world of her immigrant family. It is a story which echoes the experience of the hundreds of thousands of Jewish families who left Eastern Europe for the United States at the turn of the 20th Century. It is the story of family, memory, the desire to fit in and assimilate, stories of personal successes and failures. In her quiet, unassuming voice, Deanna touches on the profound changes to family, religion and personal identity that have occurred over the past century. It is a window on from where we have come. Better or worse than where we are? A question for each of us to consider. Rabbi Ira J. Schiffer Associate Chaplain Charles P. Scott Center for Spiritual & Religious Life Middlebury College

A Decent Life

You're probably never going to be a saint. Even so, let's face it: you could be a better person. We all could. But what does that mean for you? In a world full of suffering and deprivation, it's easy to despair--and it's also easy to judge ourselves for not doing more. Even if we gave away everything we own and devoted ourselves to good works, it wouldn't solve all the world's problems. It would make them better, though. So is that what we have to do? Is anything less a moral failure? Can we lead a fundamentally decent life without taking such drastic steps? Todd May has answers. He's not the sort of philosopher who tells us we have to be model citizens who display perfect ethics in every decision we make. He's realistic: he understands that living up to ideals is a constant struggle. In A Decent Life, May leads readers through the traditional philosophical bases of a number of arguments about what ethics asks of us, then he develops a more reasonable and achievable way of thinking about them, one that shows us how we can use philosophical insights to participate in the complicated world around us. He explores how we should approach the many relationships in our lives--with friends, family, animals, people in need--through the use of a more forgiving, if no less fundamentally serious, moral compass. With humor, insight, and a lively and accessible style, May opens a discussion about how we can, realistically, lead the good life that we aspire to. A philosophy of goodness that leaves it all but unattainable is ultimately self-defeating. Instead, Todd May stands at the forefront of a new wave of philosophy that sensibly reframes our morals and redefines what it means to live a decent life.

Animal rights is animal theology. The author argues that historical theology, creatively defined, must reject humanocentricity. He questions the assumption that if theology is to speak on this issue, 'it must only do so on the side of the oppressors.' His theological query investigates not only the abstractions of theory, but also the realities of hunting, animal experimentation, and genetic engineering. He is an important, pioneering, Christian voice speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.
