The question of cleanliness is one every age and culture has answered with confidence. For the first-century Roman, being clean meant a two-hour soak in baths of various temperatures, scraping the body with a miniature rake, and a final application of oil. For the aristocratic Frenchman in the seventeenth century, it meant changing your shirt once a day and perhaps going so far as to dip your hands in some water. Did Napoleon know something we didn't when he wrote Josephine "I will return in five days. Stop washing"? And why is the German term Warmduscher—a man who washes in warm or hot water—invariably a slight against his masculinity? Katherine Ashenburg takes on such fascinating questions as these in Dirt on Clean, her charming tour of attitudes to hygiene through time. What could be more routine than taking up soap and water and washing yourself? And yet cleanliness, or the lack of it, is intimately connected to ideas as large as spirituality and sexuality, and historical events that include plagues, the Civil War, and the discovery of germs. An engrossing fusion of erudition and anecdote, Dirt on Clean considers the bizarre prescriptions of history's doctors, the hygienic peccadilloes of great authors, and the historic twists and turns that have brought us to a place Ashenburg considers hedonistic yet oversanitized.

Beneath the Dirt, written during the winter of 2010, reads like a kaleidoscope of rhyming words strung abstractly together in a nursery rhyme rhythm. It is a roller coaster of senses. At times chilling, and at other times silly, but always an enjoyable read.

John Langston III searches the Scriptures to find answers to the question, "How can a believer avoid irreverent behavior before the holy God of Heaven?" These scriptural studies contained within this book should remind us that we have no room to boast of our spiritual maturity, and we are indeed, "Not far from the Dirt!" Almost since Adam was formed from the dirt, irreverent behavior towards God has been a catastrophic ongoing problem since sin entered the world. We live in the days where irreverent behavior is rampant towards God, sadly, sometime committed by believers in Christ. However, this book refreshes the truth for us that God is God and we are created beings, for His glory. Those who read this book will gain a deeper understanding of how important it is that we not offend the Holy God, who created us. Dr. John L. Langston III has been the president of TMA Ministries since its founding in 1982. This ministry has taken him to more than forty countries, sharing his talents as a missionary in practical service, evangelism, and Bible teaching. He is also the author of, "Speeding Beyond the Limit?" (published by Xulon Press), this is one in a series on Christian ethics for the last days. Currently, Dr. Langston continues teaching on the Minor Prophets and the Attributes of God as a visiting seminary professor in South India, Trinidad and Guyana, South America.

Eighth grade never smelled so bad Rachel can't believe she has to give up her Saturdays to scrubbing other people's toilets. So. Gross. But she kinda, sorta stole $287.22 from her college fund that she's got to pay back ASAP or her mom will ground her for life. Which is even worse than working for her mother's new cleaning business. Maybe. After all, becoming a maid is definitely not going to help her already loserish reputation. But Rachel picks up more than smelly socks on the job. As maid to some of the most popular kids in school, Rachel suddenly has all the dirt on the 8th grade in-crowd. Her formerly boring diary is now filled with juicy secrets. And when her crush offers to pay her to spy on his girlfriend, Rachel has to decide if she's willing to get her hands dirty... "Holy fried onion rings! Fun from beginning to end." —Wendy Mass, New York Times bestselling author of 11 Birthdays and The Candymakers
