There is no pill. There is no diet. Could it be that our underlying assumption—that what we’re eating is making us fat and sick—is just plain wrong? To address the nation’s bulging waistline and the disease states associated with it, scientists have conducted a whopping 500,000 studies of diet and 300,000 of obesity. Journalists have written 223,000,000 and 15,600,000 news articles respectively about the topics. Yet nothing seems to halt the epidemic. It's clear a new approach is needed. Anastacia Marx de Salcedo’s Eat Like a Pig, Run Like a Horse, looks not just to data driven science, but to animals and the natural world around us. What she finds will transform the national debate about the root causes of our most pervasive diseases and offer hope of dramatically reducing the number who suffer from these – no matter what we eat. She starts by chronicling her own medical miracle—she has multiple sclerosis, but discovered that daily exercise keeps it from progressing. And now, new research now backs up her own experience. This revelation prompted her to ask what would happen if people with lifestyle illness put physical activity front and center in their daily lives instead of diet? In a fascinating journey divided between personal profiles of patients, mad(ish) scientists, and beguiling animal stories (bats, who fly hundreds of miles weekly, are incredibly disease resistant, much like how aerobic exercise boosts our own immune systersm), Anastacia shows we need to move beyond our current diet-focused model to a new, dynamic concept of metabolism as regulated by exercise. Suddenly the answer to global good health is embarrassingly simple. Don’t worry about what you eat. Worry about how and how much you move. In a few years’ time, adhering to a finicky Keto, Paleo, low-carb, or any other special diet to stay healthy will be as antiquated as using Ayer’s Ague Cure, Daffy’s Elixir, or Dr. Bonker’s Celebrated Egyptian Oil—all popular quack medicines from the 1800s—to cure disease. And just as the 19th-century health revolution was based on a new understanding that the true cause of malaria, tuberculosis, and cholera were tiny germs, bacteria and viruses, so the coming 21st-century one will be based on our new understanding that exercise is the only way to metabolic health. Fascinating and brilliant, Eat Like a Pig, Run Like a Horse, is primed to usher in that new era.

The purpose of this volume is to "unseal" or reveal the mysteries in the prophecy of Daniel. The book of Daniel is the ONLY example in the entire bible of a prophecy that was "shut up" and/or "sealed" in antiquity. This is a mysterious phrase and is the reason the book is NOT well understood to the present time. The "shutting up" or "sealing" of the book must mean that the full and complete MEANING of the prophecy would NOT be revealed to the understanding of men. That is, until the arrival of a time period called "the time of the end." (See Dan. 12:9) This appears to be the exact case because there are things in the prophecy that clearly have NOT been correctly understood to this very day. Examples of these misunderstood things in the prophecy include: (1) The meaning of the phrase, "the time of the end." (2) The historical identity of the "willful king" of Dan. 11:36. (3) The true meaning of the word "indignation" in 8:19 & 11:36. (4) The historical connection between the "sale of the land" in 11:39 AND the "willful king" of 11:36. (5) The separation of the prophecy between ancient and modern. This approximate1900 years time span is seen between 11:39 and 40. . The first mention of "sealing" is seen in 8:26, where the Archangel Gabriel instructs Daniel to "shut thou up the vision, for it shall be for many days." Gabriel is referring to Daniel's vision of chapter 8. It seems the "shutting up" of that vision contributes to the later "sealing" of the entire book. In 12: 4, the Archangel Gabriel instructed Daniel to "shut up the words and seal the, BOOK ( even) to the time of the end." (KJV) Note: The word "even" is a suppled word as it does not appear in the original. The Septuagint (LXX) uses the word "to" instead of "even." Gabriel instructed Daniel to seal the book in 12:4, but he tells Daniel in 12:9 to-- : "Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end." Gabriel must have assumed that Daniel had effectively "sealed" the book according to his previous instructions. The mysterious phrase "the time of the end' is mentioned 5 times in the prophecy. Some writers have said this is a short period of several decades time that will occur just before the end of human history on earth. However, one must assume from these verses that the TRUE MEANING of the prophecy would then be fully understood at or during the "time of the end." Most writers have assumed the existence of only ONE "time of the end" in the book. However, it is easily proved there are two such periods and they are parallels of each other. The first period occurred at the end of the Jewish "era." The second period will occur at the end of the Gentile "era." The present volume is a calculated attempt to "unseal" the prophecy. One reason for this idea is that the world now "lives" in the last "time of the end." After all, the prophecy states that it would be "sealed to the time of the end." The clear inference is that it would be "unsealed" at (or during( that time period. Because of a decades long, prayerful and diligent historical search, every mystery in the prophecy has now been revealed in the present volume. The prophecy can now be fully understood for the first time since the archangel Gabriel (and Daniel) "sealed" it over 2000 years ago.

“What is the God of the philosopher? Can the philosopher, that is to say, can human reason, unenlightened by the revealed word, come to a true and secure understanding of ‘He-Who-Is’? Is it possible for mere man, without the impact of a personal experience, intimate and intuitive, to arrive by means of an objective demonstration at an absolute affirmation that the Being we call God exists, or that He is Pure Act, Existence Itself, because without him the world of our experience is unintelligible, a complete contradiction? “And even if we admit, as all Christian philosophers must, that unaided reason is able by its own power to reach an objectively true and secure assent that God exists, is there any evidence, in the recorded history of our world, that man, without the directive knowledge of revelation, ever did secure by a metaphysical effort this absolute truth that the Ipsum Esse exists? Whatever be the answer to this difficult problem—and we do not pretend to know it—it is obvious that Father Holloway, in composing his philosophical approach to God, allowed himself to be guided by the knowledge of faith. Indeed, he must have prayed often for the enlightenment which the supernatural motion of divine grace brings even to the limited and imperfect intellect of a philosopher.” —From the Foreword by Henri Renard, S.J.

The collection of inspirational stories, food for thought, famous quotes, and humor is the result of more than ten years as senior pastor of Friendship Baptist Church, Memphis, Tennessee, and more than thirty-eight years of preaching and teaching. It is my hope that clergy and professional speakers as well as ordinary individuals will become better communicators in any setting using this easy to read and absorb material. It is also my hope that this collection will mentally stimulate the reader to do or feel something, especially to do something creative and spontaneous. Quoting from Mother Theresa: "The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or Leprosy, it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared-for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty . . . it is not only the poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There's a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God." (Mother Theresa, A Simple Path: Mother Theresa) In most of the inspirational stories, you will be able to experience God's love for humankind and His love for you, and at the same time demonstrate your love for God through your love for neighbor as suggested by Mother Teresa's quote. Even though I'm very acquainted with the section on humor, I find myself laughing out loud each time I revisit this section. If you are an introvert (quiet or your attention is mainly on yourself), this humor will make you an extrovert (active and expressive) and the life of any gathering, because almost everyone loves humor. Make this book a treasured addition to your library and one you will gladly recommend to others. It is my fervent prayer that through this effort I am leaving the wood pile a little higher than I found it. Jesus loves you and so do I! Reverend Wesley Louis Moss, at eighty-one years young, is Associate Minister of Mt. Tabor Baptist Church in Columbus, Georgia. Reverend Ken Jelks is senior pastor.
