Opis - From Facebook"s COO and Wharton"s top-rated professor, the #1 New York Times best-selling authors of Lean In and Originals: a powerful, inspiring, and practical book about building resilience and moving forward after life"s inevitable setbacks. After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. "I was in "the void,"" (she writes), "A vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe." Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build. Option B combines Sheryl"s personal insights with Adam"s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Beginning with the gut-wrenching moment when she finds her husband, Dave Goldberg, collapsed on a gym floor, Sheryl opens up her heart - and her journal - to describe the acute grief and isolation she felt in the wake of his death. But Option B goes beyond Sheryl"s loss to explore how a broad range of people have overcome hardships including illness, job loss, sexual assault, natural disasters, and the violence of war. Their stories reveal the capacity of the human spirit to persevere...And to rediscover joy. Resilience comes from deep within us and from support outside us. Even after the most devastating events, it is possible to grow by finding deeper meaning and gaining greater appreciation in our lives. Option B illuminates how to help others in crisis, develop compassion for ourselves, raise strong children, and create resilient families, communities, and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to everyday struggles, allowing us to brave whatever lies ahead. Two weeks after losing her husband, Sheryl was preparing for a father-child activity. "I want Dave," (she cried). Her friend replied, "Option A is not available," and then promised to help her make the most of Option B. We all live some form of Option B. This book will help us all make the most of it.

Excerpt from The Biblical Illustrator, or Anecdotes, Similes, Emblems, Illustrations: Expository, Scientific, Geographical, Historical, and Homiletic, Gathered From a Wide Range of Home and Foreign Literature, on the Verses of the Bible Teaching or the Enema - Out of this Epistle we may gather an abstract of the things to be known, and that concerning God, ourselves, and Christ. 1. Concern God. We may hence be instructed in His nature, attributes, and person: as to His nature, that He is light, and in Him no darkness; His attributes, that He is faithful, just, holy, righteous, pure, invisible, knowing all things, and love itself; the persons, that there are three which bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, the Holy Ghost; and these three are one. 2. Concerning ourselves. We may here learn what we are by nature, namely, lying in wickedness what we are by grace, to wit, born Of God and what we shall be in glory, like to Him, seeing Him as He is. 3. Concerning Christ. We have Him here characterised in His natures, ofiices, acts, and benefits. (1) In respect of His natures, He is as to His Deity called true God, and yet more distinctly, with reference to His Per sonality, the only begotten Son of God; as to His humanity, He is said to be sent into the world, and so truly man, that He was seen, heard, and handled by the apostles. (2) As to His ofiices, He is here asserted in general to be the Christ, and so anointed to those offices and in particular, as priest, to take away sin, to be the propitiation for our sins, and our advocate with the Father as prophet, by His Spirit to teach us all things; and as a king, to destroy the works of the devil. (3) Most of His mediatorial acts are here specified: His incarnation, where He is said to come in the żesh passion, in that He layeth down His life for us His resurrection, inasmuch as eternal life is said to be in Him and His ascension and intercession, because He is affirmed to be an advocate with the Father, and His coming again in the day of judgment to appear as Judge of the world. (4) Lastly, we need not go further than this Epistle to meet with those benefits we obtain by Him, in that He giveth His Spirit to us, whereby, we dwelling in Him, and He in us, have fellowship with the Father and His Son Jesus Christ, and by virtue of this forgiveness of our sins for His name's sake; adoption, whereby we are called the sons of God; finally, justification by blood, sanctification by water, and eternal life. 2. Nor are only doctrines of faith, but rules of practice, deducible from this Epistle. (1) Would we know what to avoid This book teacheth us in 'general to eschew all sin, both describing what it is, a transgression of the law, and dehorting us from the com mission of it; in particular, to expel the love of the world, to abandon hatred, malice, and envy, to keep ourselves from idols, and especially to beware of the sin unto death. (2) Would we be instructed what we are to put in practice in this Epistle? We are called upon to believe in the name of Jesus Christ, to love God who hath begotten us, and to love those who are begotten of Him to have the hope of glory fixed in us, to declare our repentance, by confessing our sins, and purifying ourselves; to overcome the wicked one and the world to conquer the lusts of the żesh; to walk as Christ walked, by imitation of Him, and to abide in Him by perseverance to hear the word preached by the ministers of Christ; to ask the things we want according to His will; to open bowels of compassion, and distribute our worldly goods to our needy brethren; finally, to do righteousness, keep God's commandments, and do those things which are pleasing in His sight.

Adobe Architecture Sunstone Press

Dreaming of building an adobe home? This classic guide, with floor plans ranging from a small casita to larger ones gives 18 comprehensive period designs for the traditional adobe (the earthern "bricks" used all over the world) house adapted to building materials, plumbing, heating and small lot sizes of today. Thousands of readers have found this a valuable handbook. The authors also venture into actual adobe brick-making, construction techniques, furnishing, even how to make a horno, a traditional Indian oven. Illustrated, detailed diagrams, house plans. The first seeds for the concept for this book on adobe architecture were sown as early as 1916, when Wilfred Stedman was a student at the Art Students League in New York City. It was there that he saw Ernest Blumenschein and Bert Phillips' paintings of adobe homes in villages in and around Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico. When in the early 1920s and 1930s Wilfred and Myrtle came to see and experience this area for themselves, they met Mary Austin, Alice Corbin Henderson, Will Shuster, Frank Applegate, Josef Bakos and Mabel Dodge Luhan-all famous artists and writers of that time. These people made themselves and their friends from all over the world feel at home in this vernacular architecture. While nowhere in the United States is the Earth Building spirit as revered as in Santa Fe and Taos, new interest is spreading all over the world. New research and new technology is being combined with the traditional in keeping with an overall awakening to the natural resources and beauty of our planet and with a new personal sense of responsibility on the part of individuals in regard to better planning in the use of these. There is a new sense of joy in finding out how much one can do oneself with natural materials. * * * * * Myrtle Stedman was known as an "Artist in Adobe," designing, building, and remodeling adobe homes under a contractor's license. She was also a well-known artist whose academic training started in 1927 when she was a student in the Houston Museum of Fine Arts school. Her English born husband, Wilfred Stedman, whose background was in architecture as well as in painting and illustrating was recognized as one of the most outstanding artists of the American Southwest. Adobe architecture in New Mexico was one of Wilfred's favorite topics of conversation and Myrtle was instilled with the love of adobes from the moment they were married. After his death in 1950, Myrtle went on to become one of the foremost authorities on adobe construction. Myrtle Stedman was a member of PEN New Mexico, a branch of PEN Center USA West of International PEN and believed that there is no end to what the mind can do with the eye and hand, in time and in spirit. She is also the author of "Artists in Adobe," "A House Not Made With Hands," "Adobe Remodeling and Fireplaces," "Of One Mind," "Of Things to Come," "Ongoing Life," "Rural Architecture," "The Ups and Downs of Living Alone in Later Life," and "The Way Things Are or Could Be," all from Sunstone Press.

This book has many uses: An exquisitely simple gift, For daily meditations, For personal/spiritual development workshops, For teaching children (of any age) life lessons, As a coffee table book A conversation starter, and To remind you of who you are each day - simply exquisite! I've collected the images appealing to my twisted sense of humour, over many years, and the words came about a little weirdly too ... in 2015 I heard about a local (Brisbane) competition for flash fiction, something I'd never heard of before. It was for the best short story under 50 words. I didn't win the competition and, knowing that nothing is wasted and everything counts, I asked my muses why I had done this. Three days later, the thought occurred that I could write a book of short stories. Since I was born in 1953, I - or was it my muses? - decided to write a book of 53 53-word stories ... and here they are for your enjoyment, matched with the image that best fits each story. Enjoy! Short and to the point yet insightful. The stories within can be read at face value but if contemplated at depth can provide insights to the spirit of who we are as humans. Like the signposts in life hopefully the stories contained in 53 words can help you move in a direction and place to finding joy. Some are comical some are not but all provide the reader with a plethora of ideas to ponder. ~ Julian Harvey, career consultant A collection of 53 smiles, just as the title promises. Some make you think, some have endings which surprise and others make you laugh out loud. In today's world of constant hustle and bustle, this is a short and thought-provoking read. The stories are written with care, creativity and utilising strong descriptors which immediately draw in the reader. An enjoyable collection of stories! ~ Tia Mitsis, author of A Greek Odyssey. This book is thought provoking to the reader and causes them to question what is happening for them. The wording is poetic and beautifully written. This book is best delved into rather than being read from cover to cover and is less about being entertained and more about being challenged to grow personally. The writer shows understanding and maturity. ~ Anna Louise, life coach at www.annalouiselifecoaching.com

It was R.H Blyth's belief that "all that is good in European literature and culture is simply and solely that which is in accordance with the Spirit of Zen." He thereafter applied himself to the task of searching the writings of East and West in an attempt to discover that Spirit. Zen in English Literature and Oriental Classics embraces the classical literature of China and Japan and the whole extent of English literature, with numerous quotations not only from English but also from French, German, Italian, and Spanish writing. Don Quixote has a chapter all to himself, and the author considers him possibly the purest example in all of world literature of a man who lives by Zen. In English, the Zen attitude toward life is found most consistently in Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Dickens, and Stevenson. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in Zen, haiku, or indeed English literature. R.H. Blyth was born in London in 1898 and studied English literature at London University. He traveled extensively in the East before moving first to Korea and then Japan and teaching English at several universities. Blyth eventually became the English tutor to the Crown Prince of Japan. He also studied Zen Buddhism under Kayama Taigi Roshi. Blyth was interned during the war years, and it was during this time that he wrote his first book, Zen in English Literature. He went on to write numerous other books on Zen, haiku, senryu, and humor. Blyth was a man whose sensibility took root in two disparate cultures and found a harmony that he beautifully and effectively communicated in his writing.

Excerpt from Dashwood Priory: Or Mortimer's College Life "Accept, I beseech Thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Lord, and teach me." - Ps. cxix. 108. "And they entered into a covenant, to seek the Lord God of their fathers, with all their heart and with all their soul" - 2 Chron. xv. 12. If my reader ever travelled in Norfolk, he may perhaps remember, when about sixteen miles from Norwich, passing through the pretty village of Dashwood; and should he have been detained in front of the "Mortimer Arms" while the coach conveying him changed horses, I shall be much surprised if his spirit of observation did not lead him to notice the little old church on the opposite side of the road, and the pretty peep of the Priory grounds, which immediately adjoin the churchyard, and are supposed by some antiquarians to have formed the garden of a monastery attached to the church, as a small portion of the Priory still stands, of the same date and style of architecture with the church. It may not be a matter of fact to every reader of this book, that the Mortimers, whose effigies nearly fill Dashwood church, have from time immemorial been born and buried in Dashwood, and generally lived a respectable part of their lives in the Priory.

Description: In Saint Joseph Leonardo Boff seeks to provide a vigorous critique and theological analysis of Saint Joseph and in so doing attempts to undo historical misconceptions, misunderstandings, and cliches that surround the figure of Joseph. The book provides a comprehensive view of the topic as it takes into account biblical references, including the apocrypha, church tradition, papal edicts, liturgical expressions, and various viewpoints proposed by theologians. Boff is also concerned with updating the figure of Saint Joseph; his first step in this direction is to provide a clear understanding of the life of Joseph as an artisan, husband, father, and educator. He then deals with the issue of the importance of Saint Joseph for current issues concerning family and fatherhood. Lastly, Boff argues that Saint Joseph helps us to understand new facets of the mystery of God, and the author does this through his argument concerning the order of hypostatic union, where, according to his argument, there is a relation between Jesus and the Son, Mary and the Holy Spirit, and Joseph and the Father. Boff seeks here to fill a gap in the theological literature, given that theologians have concentrated their efforts on Jesus and the Son and Christology, and Mary and the Holy Spirit and Mariology; but these same theologians have, by and large, given very little time to the figure of Saint Joseph and the Father and Josephology. About the Contributor(s): Leonardo Boff was born in Brazil in 1938 and received a doctorate from the University of Munich in Germany in 1970. For the following 20 years he worked as Professor of Theology at the Franciscan School for Philosophy and Theology in Petropolis, Brazil. During the 1970s, he and Gustavo Gutierrez helped to define Liberation Theology. Since 1993 he has been a professor at the State University of Rio de Janeiro, where he is now Emeritus Professor of Ethics, Philosophy of Religion, and Ecology. He is also a member of the International Earth Charter Commission. Boff is the author of more than 70 books, including Jesus Christ Liberator: A Critical Christology for Our Time. In 2001 he was awarded the Right Livelihood Award (which is considered to be the ""alternative"" Nobel Prize) by the Swedish Parliament. Alexandre Guilherme, the translator, does research and teaches at the University of Durham, UK.
