What is going on? Why does this keep happening? Kids who have lived with domestic abuse need answers to their questions. Children and teens have typically been given very little, if any information to help answer these questions, and often believe that they are at fault for the conflict and fighting between the adults in their home. Along with the burden of self-blame, they believe they must keep the secret of what really goes on at home as a way of protecting everyone involved. Knowledge empowers and counters the helplessness kids often feel who are exposed to abuse in the home. The interactive format of A Kids Guide to Understanding Domestic Abuse will encourage kids to reflect on the information as it applies to their individual circumstances. It also leads them to the realization that they can take control of their own lives and determine how they want to live, thus giving hope that they can break the generational cycle of domestic violence.

Bible-Believing Christians is a book that asks the following questions: Why do contradictions within the Bible cause a problem? How can trusting the Bible be problematic? Is the Bible open to interpretation? Is it just another religious book? Is it a loaded Canon? Is it Gods revelation? Is the Bible inerrant? Is it the Christians primary authority? Is it the Word of God? Is it even understandable? . . . and how can we solve apparent contradictions or difficulties? The inspiration for writing this book came as a result of talking with folk I love, who were genuine sceptics of the Bible, and with others who had difficulty in reconciling their traditional Christian beliefs with their own experience and knowledge of history and science. It was clear that their understanding of the Bible had become mixed up with their knowledge of Christian traditions and church teaching, and when the latter of these was in error, the Bible was being held responsible. As a result, the Bible, and the Gospel within it, was not being taken seriously and was considered untrustworthy. In other words, inadequate Christian teaching and misleading tradition was eroding peoples trust in the Bible itself. Eventually, I thought it would be good to write a short book outlining how the Bible can be trusted, how traditions must be tested, and how apparent difficulties can be resolved. All this would be in the hope that such scepticism may turn into curiosity and potentially a genuine search for faith and salvation, which is freely available to all who recognise their sin and place their trust in Jesus Christs death and resurrection.

This is just an unbelievable book. I picked it up by chance from my uncles house, and I had to beg him to let me keep it.Jiri Langer, the son of a non-religious family in what was the enlightened Kafka-type godless Czech jewry, decided to go on a trip to the great hearts of Hassidus in Eastern Europe.What followed is a compilation of old Hassidic stories; mainly the masterful feats and parables of certain rabbis and tzadiks from various shtetels throughout what would become occupied Europe. It is not a self-serving or unabashedly positive book - this book is a historiographers experience traveling through, and the stories that would define, these villages.If anyone knows any more books like Nine Gates, please message me, as this is, from my experience, one of a kind.
