EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

From the Sunday Times top ten bestselling author of The Psychopath Test, this is a captivating and brilliant exploration of one of our world's most underappreciated forces: shame. 'It's about the terror, isn't it?' 'The terror of what?' I said. 'The terror of being found out.' For the past three years, Jon Ronson has travelled the world meeting recipients of high-profile public shamings. The shamed are people like us – people who, say, made a joke on social media that came out badly, or made a mistake at work. Once their transgression is revealed, collective outrage circles with the force of a hurricane and the next thing they know they're being torn apart by an angry mob, jeered at, demonized, sometimes even fired from their job. A great renaissance of public shaming is sweeping our land. Justice has been democratized. The silent majority are getting a voice. But what are we doing with our voice? We are mercilessly finding people's faults. We are defining the boundaries of normality by ruining the lives of those outside it. We are using shame as a form of social control. Simultaneously powerful and hilarious in the way only Jon Ronson can be, So You've Been Publicly Shamed is a deeply honest book about modern life, full of eye-opening truths about the escalating war on human flaws – and the very scary part we all play in it.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

You probably know that Jesus did miracles, but do you know why? Reading about Jesus' miracles is like pointing at constellations in the sky. We look at the stars themselves, not the finger pointing at them. This constellation of seven miracles in John's Gospel shows us who Jesus was and why it matters. It is the miracle worker we're to see, not just the miracles. Why was his turning water into wine not a party trick? Why did he walk on water instead of staying on shore? Why did he cry when raising Lazarus back to life? Each miracle in John's narration is a story that had to be told. The Jesus you meet in these pages is full of power and compassion, glory and approachability, grace and truth. Whether you've known Jesus a long time, are new to faith, or just curious about him, He Made the Stars Also draws upon John's seven sign events to show you why Jesus remains so compelling.

The Shame Game
Author: O'Hara, Mary

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

What does it mean to be poor? For decades the dominant narrative in the UK and US has been that it is caused by personal flaws or ‘bad life decisions’. People are ‘lazy’, ‘dependent’ and ‘irresponsible’. This ‘story’ has become embedded in the public consciousness with serious ramifications for how financially vulnerable people are seen, spoken about and treated. Drawing on a two-year story-telling project and her own experience of childhood poverty, this book by award-winning journalist and author Mary O’Hara, argues for a radical overhaul of this fundamentally pernicious portrayal. Crucially, it turns to the real experts to try to find answers – the people who live it.

Sappho
Author: Nancy Freedman
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Release Date: 2014-11-18
Pages: 352
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In this finely drawn portrait, Sappho of Lesbos narrates her extraordinary life, from her childhood in war-torn Mitylene to her later relentless search for passionate love. Driven by the all-consuming fever of her Muse-inspired poetic gift, Sappho leads the reader on a journey that is at once turbulent and divine, desperate and sensuous. With breathtaking lucidity and great leaps of imagination, Nancy Freedman shows us a Sappho we have never known -- and one we will never forget. The toast of kings for her verse, Sappho was also a shrewd businesswoman, an educator, an advocate of women's equality, and a rebel who was banished from her island home. Remembering her solely as a lesbian icon reveals only one aspect of her multifaceted personality. Here, finally, Nancy Freedman gives us the complete Sappho. She was arguably the most accomplished lyric poet of the ancient world, but her writing was all but destroyed by the early Church. Only in this century have fragments been uncovered, so that we too may glimpse the force of this strangely enigmatic woman. Contradictory in nature, she inspired equally passionate adoration and loathing; her fame brought her a series of obsessive loves. Her relations with women are well known, but it was for the love of a man that she set sail to face her destiny.
