Love and Responsibility brilliantly sheds light on the mysterious dynamics between men and women and challenges us to live those dynamics better.—From the Introduction The essential background to the Theology of the Body! Father Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) published Love and Responsibility in 1960, the fruit of his pastoral work, particularly among young people. His analysis of the true meaning of human love is life-transforming and practical, shedding light on real issues between men and women. Edward Sri unpacks the contents of this great work, making it accessible to every reader. The author emphasizes the down-to-earth nature of Love and Responsibility, helping readers appropriate practical information on such topics as: how to determine if a relationship is one of authentic love or is doomed to failure the problem of pornography the meaning of friendship how to achieve greater intimacy in marriage and much more. Study questions with each chapter make this a valuable resource not only for individual personal reading but also for small group study.

This book is the next volume in Levering’s Engaging Doctrine series. The prior volume of the series examined the doctrine of creation. The present volume examines the purpose of creation: the marriage of God and humans. God created the cosmos for the purpose of the marriage of God and his people—and through his people, the marriage of God and the entire creation. Given that the central meaning or “prime analogate” of marriage is the marriage of God and humankind, the study of human marriage needs to be shaped by this eschatological goal and foregrounded as a dogmatic theme. After a first chapter defending and explaining the biblical witness to the marriage of God and his people, the book explores various themes: marriage as an image of God, original sin as the fall of the primordial marriage, the cross of Jesus Christ and marital self-sacrificial love, the procreative and unitive ends of marriage, marriage as a sacrament, and marriage’s importance for social justice and for the upbuilding of the kingdom of God. Along the way, the book provides an introduction to the key biblical, patristic, medieval, modern, and contemporary thinkers and controversies regarding the doctrine of marriage.

Have you ever struggled to explain the basics of a Christian worldview, particularly as it concerns God's existence and his relation to the natural order, morality, even sexual ethics? Utilizing the thought of the late Pope John Paul II and the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle, Dr. Andrew Swafford has done just this. This book explains the philosophical underpinnings of a Christian worldview--in a way that is accessible to the general reader--discussing God's existence, faith and reason, a tour through virtue-ethics leading to authentic happiness (and discussing the seven deadly sins along the way), as well as John Paul II's teaching on the "language" of the body and the meaning of the human vocation to make a gift of one's self. The reader will come away with a deep understanding of the philosophical foundations for the Christian life.

Bastard Out of Carolina, nominated for the 1992 National Book Award for fiction, introduced Dorothy Allison as one of the most passionate and gifted writers of her generation. Now, in Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, she takes a probing look at her family's history to give us a lyrical, complex memoir that explores how the gossip of one generation can become legends for the next. Illustrated with photographs from the author's personal collection, Two or Three Things I Know for Sure tells the story of the Gibson women -- sisters, cousins, daughters, and aunts -- and the men who loved them, often abused them, and, nonetheless, shared their destinies. With luminous clarity, Allison explores how desire surprises and what power feels like to a young girl as she confronts abuse. As always, Dorothy Allison is provocative, confrontational, and brutally honest. Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, steeped in the hard-won wisdom of experience, expresses the strength of her unique vision with beauty and eloquence.

My book addresses the good black woman in general, no celebrity stuff, just the day to day general life of a Good black woman. The title can be very confusing when you read on but thats exactly what I want each and every reader to be: Confused. Why Good and why Black? Good is an Adjective that can mean different things to different people, it replaces other much more weighty adjectives such as Outstanding, Excellent, Fabulous etc. Good is having admirable, pleasing, superior, or positive qualities.(Collins Dictionary) Good means morally excellent, virtuous, righteous, suitable or efficient for a purpose. I can go on and on describing the word Good. Good is just good. Black is symbolic to me in the following way: Ethnically I am black but also African Black may denote a Race for people whose skin colour ranges from light to darker shades of Brown. Interesting! (Wikimedia) In Western fashion Black creates a stylish, sexy, and powerful fashion statement Several bad incidents have been named Black e.g. .Black Thursday, Black Friday, Black December, Black November etc. I live in a country where people are sensitive to being called black, others are confused as to whether they are black or not Black symbolizes secrecy, ambiguity or the unknown e.g. .Black market, Black magic, Blackmail etc. Black is just Black. The book intends to highlight the challenges that are faced by all Good black women, I get into their minds, their bodies, their souls and in their lives, be it Church life, Married Life, Family life ,Relationships to name a few. The book looks at good black women now and is aimed at being interesting to read five to ten years from now on. Life has definitely changed for every Good black women now, there are so many liberties and yet so many constraints. This is rhetoric, as the new independent woman generation does not apply across the board. There is so much competition to succeed in the corporate world and so much greed such that other things are compromised i.e. the family, children, relationships, time to play, and so forth. The Good black woman delivers an extra-ordinary juxtaposition of women seen as good yet suffering regardless. Chapter One explores men as a Mystery to women in that men is unique and women fail to understand their uniqueness. It also provides insight as to how men view women and how women will like to be viewed by men. Chapter Two is about woman aspiring to be normal in a rather dysfunctional society. It explores how some working women struggle to survive and thus resort to being mistresses amongst other things. It also looks at raising children in the midst of all the social ills being witnessed today. Chapter Three looks at how some women make sacrifices and marry thinking marriage will be a bed of roses only to find that its a bed of thorns mainly because of abstract reasoning abilities that cause conflict in marriages. It also looks at that the way Chapter Four looks at how women regard divorce as a nightmare in that when they marry they think life will be blissful. However, certain circumstances force women to divorce. Note that the writer mentions other causes of divorce other that physical abuse. Chapter Five is about women who have feelings for other women, feelings that they sometimes explore wrongly. It also looks at the different reasons why women get into such unions that do not last though some do. Chapter Six reveals the other side of women, when they betray each other for various reasons. One or two women have encountered one or two forms of betrayal form their friends, family, spouse and so on. Understanding the cause of the betrayal may cause other women to wary of it. This chapter deals with the harsh realities of betrayal. Chapters Seven is about the fear of Loneliness. Need I mention that the more a woman stays in an unhealthy relationship the difficult it is to let go, but the latter happens becaus

"Timely when originally published, Men and Marriage is essential now given the the warlike climate ofmale-female relationships, unfortunately fostered by radical feminism."Rush LimbaughMen and Marriage is a critical commentary that asks theburning question, How can society survive the pervasive disintegration of thefamily? A profound crisis faces modern social order as traditional familyrelationships become almost unrecognizable.George Gilder's Men and Marriage is a revised and expandededition of his 1973 landmark work, Sexual Suicide . He examinesthe deterioration of the family, the well-defined sex roles it offered, and howthis change has shifted the focus of our society. Poverty, for instance, stemsfrom the destruction of the family when unmarried parents are abandoned bytheir lovers or older women are divorced because society approves of theirhusbands' younger girlfriends. Gilder claims that men will only fulfill theirpaternal obligations when women lead them to do so, and that this civilizinginfluence, balanced with proper economic support, is the most important part ofmaintaining a productive, healthy, loving society. He offers a concrete planfor rebuilding the family in America. His solutions challenge readers to returnto these roles and reestablish the family values that were once so crucial instaving off the ills that plague our country.Gilder insists that it is time to reexamine what "liberation" haswrought and at what cost. Only a return to traditional family values, hecontends, can stem the tide of disaster.George Gilder is the author of Wealth and Poverty , thebest-selling critique of Reaganomics, The Spirit of Enterprise ,Visible Man , Naked Nomads , and The Party ThatLost Its Head . He was a speechwriter for Ronald Reagan and now writesregularly for The Wall Street Journal and National Review aboutmaterial advances and their effect on society. His most recent books includetwo other well-known social commentaries, Microcosm and Life AfterTelevision.

Francesca Biagi-Chai’s book - a translation from the French of Le Cas Landru - tackles the issue of criminal responsibility in the case of serial killers, and other 'mad' people who are nonetheless deemed to be answerable before the law. The author, a Lacanian psychoanalyst and senior psychiatrist in France, with extensive experience working in institutional settings, analyses the logic informing the crimes of famous serial killers. Addressing the Landru case (which was the inspiration for Chaplin's Monsieur Verdoux), as well as those of Pierre Rivière and Donato Bilancia, Biagi-Chai casts light on the confusion that pervades forensic psychiatry and criminal law as to the distinction between mental illness and ‘madness’. She then elaborates the consequences of her argument in a sustained critique of the insanity defence. The book includes a Foreword by the renowned psychoanalyst, Jacques-Alain Miller, and an introduction by the translators on the question of insanity before the law in the US and in the UK, which considers the pertinence of Biagi-Chai’s argument for forensic psychiatry, for criminal law, and for the increasing contemporary focus on the assessment of dangerousness and risk-management strategies in crime control practices.
