Have you ever let a magazine define your body image or tell you how you should look? Ever stared into the mirror and thought, “I hate my body”? Have you given a guy the power to decide whether or not you matter? You’re not the only one. So many young women suffer from insecurity and poor body image. When you look to anything—or anyone—other than God for a picture of your self-worth, you’ll see a distorted reflection. Former professional model Jennifer Strickland knows all too well the despair young women experience when they allow the world to define their body image. Being treated like a plastic mannequin left her wondering where on earth to turn for her true reflection. Now, in a new version of her acclaimed book Beautiful Lies, Jennifer Strickland tells you that when you turn away from the mirrors of the world and look into the never-changing mirror of the Word, your beauty, purpose, and identity become crystal clear. You are God’s beloved daughter, designed to reflect His image.

Every one of us sooner or later walks through hell. The hell of being hurt. The hell of hurting another. The hell of cancer, the hell of divorce, the hell of chronic pain. The hell of anxiety, depression, Alzheimer’s, a kid in trouble. The hell of a reluctant, thunking shovelful of earth upon the casket of someone we deeply loved. The point is not to come out of hell empty-handed. There is real and profound power in the pain we endure if we transform our suffering into a more authentic, meaningful life. As the Senior Rabbi of Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles, one of America’s largest and most important congregations, Steve Leder witnesses a lot of pain: “It’s my phone that rings when people’s bodies or lives fall apart.“ In this deeply inspiring book, written in the spirit of such classics as When Bad Things Happen to Good People, Rabbi Leder guides us through pain’s stages of surviving, healing, and finally growing. Drawing on his experience as a spiritual leader, the wisdom of ancient traditions, modern science, and stories from his own life and others’, he shows us that when we must endure, we can, and that there is a path for each of us that leads from pain to wisdom. This powerful book can inspire in us all a life worthy of our suffering; a life gentler, wiser, and more beautiful than before.

However, although her name was quoted in exorbitant amounts, she cannot be happy. Andrea is a successful businessman who is determined to leave behind a lifetime of trivialities and fill the void that makes him feel empty. He represented everything Alejandra hates, but he is also what she wants most. She is the opposite of what Andrea is used to, but at the same time, the only thing she needs. Milan's most beautiful night will seal their destiny and their lives will change forever. Together they will travel through Hell, Purgatory and Heaven, while love will be the guide for their tormented souls. Lorena Fuentes brings us a novel full of romance and drama, in which the healing power of love and the value of forgiveness are appreciated.

In Categories chapters 7 and 8 Aristotle considers his third and fourth categories - those of Relative and Quality. Critics of Aristotle had suggested for each of the non-substance categories that they could really be reduced to relatives, so it is important how the category of Relative is defined. Aristotle offers two definitions, and the second, stricter, one is often cited by his defenders in order to rule out objections. The second definition of relative involves the idea of something changing its relationship through a change undergone by its correlate, not by itself. There were disagreements as to whether this was genuine change, and Plotinus discussed whether relatives exist only in the mind, without being real. The terms used by Aristotle for such relationships was 'being disposed relatively to something', a term later borrowed by the Stoics for their fourth category, and perhaps originating in Plato's Academy. In his discussion of Quality, Aristotle reports a debate on whether justice admits of degrees, or whether only the possession of justice does so. Simplicius reports the further development of this controversy in terms of whether justice admits a range or latitude (platos). This debate helped to inspire the medieval idea of latitude of forms, which goes back much further than is commonly recognised - at least to Plato and Aristotle.

One day the king's men are out hunting and find Igreka, starving and neglected to such a degree that they are unsure whether he is human or animal. Igeraka soon falls in love with the king's daughter, Nyangunga, who according to some, marries a beast. The author's concern is how to present the story telling it from three different perspectives. First Nyangunga's father, the king, gives an account; the middle part of the story is told by Bubi, a second daughter who lets events speak for themselves, concealing herself, her age and gender, as narrator. Finally Nyangunga's mother describes her daughter's fate from a less compromising, feminist perspective.

These classic Japanese short stories are masterfully translated and a joy to read. The medieval period in Japan, spanning the years from about 1200 to 1600, was a time of rapid cultural development that saw the emergence and refinement of many new art forms. One of these was the religious folk tale, or setsuwa, many collections of which were compiled during this time. Like the classic fables and parables of the West, these stories are varied in origin, many of them collected from Indian and Chinese sources and retold and embellished by succeeding generations of authors. In Lotus: and Other Tales of Medieval Japan, the author has carefully chosen eight particularly notable setsuwa for their timeless interest and fascinating plot developments. These brilliantly crafted tales effortlessly lure the reader into another world where ghosts and demons walk the earth alongside kings and priests, and miracles occur. With their direct and often shocking developments, the stories here will surprise and startle as much as they engage and amuse. Japanese tales include: Heads Haseo’s Love The Nun Oyo A Tale of Luck and Riches Lazybones Taro Lotus How the Gods Came to Kumano Sansho Dayu
