The predominant message in our culture is that it's okay to have sex whenever, wherever, and however we want. Sex has become just sex. But while society has taken sex too far, the church hasn't taken it far enough. God wants couples to make love in marriage-with passion, with purpose, and with pleasure. Marriages aren't experiencing all the benefits that come from a healthy sex life. Couples are facing a barrage of influences that keep them from connecting with each other regularly-the kids, the career, the house, the errands, etc. SEXPERIMENT shows people that sex in marriage is more than just sex, and it's more than a chore. The Youngs believe it's time to get back to understanding the context of sex in marriage and that it's time for couples to break the barriers keeping them from a healthy sexual relationship. Couples ought to experience the benefits of having sex regularly, intentionally, and creatively. SEXPERIMENT will allow couples to discover that the intersection of God and sex can lead to a life punctuated by exclamation marks!

The Elijah Enigma

The Prophet, King Ahab and the Rebirth of Monotheism in the Book of Kings

An analysis of the intertwining tales of Elijah and Ahab—mercurial prophet and Machiavellian king—this book is an accessible treatment of one of the most dramatic and well-known episodes in the Bible. In contrast to the popular image of Elijah as a courageous wonder-worker who calls down fire from heaven and ascends to heaven in a fiery chariot, this book contends that the prophet was a deeply conflicted man, torn between a burning idealism and a deep disillusionment over his failure to achieve his ideals. Despite his profound sense of failure, Elijah’s struggle against the paganizing regime of King Ahab and his queen, Jezebel, managed to save monotheism from eclipse, and in so doing alter the course of human history. This work further proposes that the tale presented by the Bible is more than an account of an ancient battle between two historic figures: it is a paradigm of the struggle between the ideals of human dignity and justice, and the alternative of expediency in the pursuit of power, a conflict that pervades human life to this very day.

When Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert, died in December 1861 the nation was paralysed with grief. His death was a catastrophe for Victoria, who not only adored her husband but had, through twenty-one years of marriage, utterly relied on him: as companion, father of their children, friend, confidant, and unofficial private secretary. Without Albert to guide and support her, the Queen retreated into a state of pathological grief which nobody could penetrate and few understood. Drawing widely on contemporary letters, diaries and memoirs, Rappaport brings new light to bear on the causes of Albert's death and tracks Victoria's mission to commemorate her husband in perpetuity. Richly compelling, this is the story of a magnificent obsession that even death could not sever.

There is only one flaw in the wedding plans - she is not in love with her bridegroom. Commanded to marry by Queen Victoria, Anastasia is horror struck at the thought of an arranged marriage. Having dreamt of true love since childhood, she despairs that a marriage based on political allegiance can ever be a happy one. Especially when her bridegroom, the handsome King of Maurona, is reputed to have a preference for anything French, including the seductive wife of Maurona's French ambassador.

But can an innocent English rose compete with the dark smoldering beauty of the sensual Comtesse le Granmont? Two women, one man and only one winner - but as danger grows ever closer will the King realise who his real friends are, and which woman should be at his side, in time to save his country?

In this highly accessible and realistic book on improving marriage, marriage-retreat leader Mary Jo Pedersen guides Catholic couples through a marriage "check-up" that combines the latest social science research on improving marriage with the wisdom of the Christian Tradition. Throughout For Better, for Worse, for God, Pedersen offers practical steps that couples can take to improve marriage, such as better communication and conflict resolution; an approach to praying together and experiencing spirituality as a couple; a refreshing view of sexuality; and an invitation to a renewed sense of mission as husband and wife. Pedersen ultimately shows that marriage is a call from God and that God's grace is what makes it possible to face the ups and downs of life together.

Krieg und Frieden

Zwischen 1863 und 1869 schuf Leo Tolstoi dieses Werk, das in seiner erzählerischen Breite auf bis dahin unerreicht kunstfertige Weise einen Historien-, Familien- und Bildungsroman vereinte. Hintergrund ist der Krieg zwischen Russland und Frankreich. Der mit über 200 Figuren überreich bevölkerte Roman schildert die Schicksale dreier Familien über mehrere Generationen hinweg. Tolstoi spring kunstvoll zwischen familiären, privaten Szenen und der Schilderung von Schlachten und kriegerischen Manövergesprächen hin und her und bietet so ein einen einmaligen Einblick in die russisch-aristokratische Seelenlage der damaligen Zeit. Das Buch ist psychologischer Spiegel und kulturphilosophisches Brennglas in einem. Der geschickte Aufbau des Buches und die sprachlich bis ins Letzte ausgefeilte Intensität ließen Tolstois Werk schnell zu einem Klassiker von Weltrang werden. »O Himmel, welch heftiger Überfall!« erwiderte der Fürst, ohne durch diesen Empfang in Aufregung zu geraten. Der Fürst trug die goldgestickte Uniform des Hofes mit Ordenssternen, seidene Strümpfe und Schnallenschuhe. Sein Gesicht zeigte beständig ein liebenswürdiges Lächeln. Er sprach Französisch, jenes gewählte Französisch, in dem unsere Großväter nicht nur sprachen, sondern auch dachten, und in dem gemessenen, herablassenden Ton eines einflußreichen Würdenträgers, der am Hofe alt geworden ist. Er näherte sich Anna Pawlowna, küßte ihr die Hand, indem er sein kahles, parfümiertes Haupt neigte, und ließ sich dann bequem auf einem Sofa nieder. »Vor allem, verehrte Freundin, beruhigen Sie mich über den Zustand Ihrer Gesundheit«, fuhr er in galantem Tone fort, der aber nicht frei von Spott war.

The Respect Dare

Ephesians 5:33 reads, "However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband." And research done by Shaunti Feldhahn in 2006 demonstrates that "respect" is one of the most critical needs a man has in a relationship. Have you ever wondered, "How can I possibly respect my husband?" Or, "Isn't there MORE to being married?" There is more. We can help you become stronger, figure out the respect thing (it's not what you think) and become more connected to God and your husband. More than half of marriages end in divorce in the United States, and many women that stay married are unhappy. The Respect Dare can change all that. It is forty days of an experience that will take away the mystery that is keeping you from speaking the language of respect with your husband. It provides real life examples from women who have developed closer relationships with God and their husbands. In it, you will learn: - How to build confidence; - Methods to positively handle conflicts; - Keys to better communication; - How to develop a more intimate connection with your spouse; - Ways to deepen your relationship with God; - And much more! Learn the language of respect and truly connect to the man you married with The Respect Dare. "Doing the dares" with a small group of women has excellent benefits, providing accountability, encouragement, and discussion. What Christian Leaders Have to Say about "The Respect Dare:" Dr. Kevin Leman, best-selling author of "Have a New Husband by Friday:" "Nina's insightful steps in The Respect Dare help you along the path to a better marriage. Walk along this successful path traveled by many women to find growth and fulfillment. Take the first step, I dare you." Shaunti Feldhahn, best-selling author of "For Women Only: What you Need to Know about The Inner Lives of Men:" "Believe it or not, most men need respect so much that, if they had to, they would give up love to get it - and respect empowers them to be the caring man you most need. One of the most important things you can ever do for your man - and thus for yourself -- is to read this book. From the first page you are an active participant as you go through daily scripture, self-reflection, prayer journaling and lots of 'now I get it!' examples. Think Nike slogan "Just Do It:" each day you find yourself DOING respect - not just thinking, praying, talking or reading about it - but DOING it. You will find your habits seamlessly changing into new ways of relating that will feel as wonderful and life-changing to you as to him." Pastor Mark Gungor, best-selling author of, "Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage:" "Women need to affirm, encourage and respect their husbands with their actions and words-and sometimes it is with the lack of words that is most powerful, if you catch my drift! Respect can be shown both by what you say and often times by what you don't say. Many times when I speak of this to women, they launch into 20 questions: What does respect mean? What does it look like? How do I show it? What if he doesn't deserve it? The list goes on and on. While there is no one-size-fits-all answer, or no recipe or steps to follow, understand that the whole concept of respect has more to do with you than it has to do with him. I encourage all women to accept this respect challenge and find out if I'm right. What do you have to lose except a whole lot of selfishness, bitterness and unrealistic expectations? On the other hand, you have a great opportunity to gain greater understanding, self-confidence, joy and a better relationship with God and your husband. Go ahead, I dare you. You won't regret it."
