A person without a functioning liver will die. Until a mere 30 years ago, there was no solution for millions suffering from many forms of liver disease, one of which is Hepatitis C, The Silent Killer. The Solution? Transplantation. LIVER TRANSPLANT: MY STORY describes my experience from the first moment of realization that my liver was diseased through to the pre-transplant, actual transplant, and post-transplant periods. It makes clear what the body is going through and what it will go through. All medical descriptions are defined in layman's terms and made completely understandable. It answers many questions such as, "What does the liver do?" This book is written for all those patients who are transplant candidates. It attempts to allay the anxiety they may have as they approach unknown territory. It makes the unknown known, thereby removing the mystery of the impending experience. It also speaks loudly of the inherent value of believing that all will be well. It assures the patient that the miracle of transplantation transforms what had been a death sentence into a gift of life. And here I am, writing all about it.

The Heart of the Story will help you see God’s Word in a new and inspiring light. In the Bible’s seemingly disconnected stories, you’ll discover one grand, unfolding epic – God’s story from Genesis onward – and your own life-story contained within it. “To understand the Bible,” says author and pastor Randy Frazee, “you need bifocal lenses, because two perspectives are involved. The Lower Story, our story, is actually many stories of men and women interacting with God in the daily course of life. The Upper Story is God’s story, the tale of his great, overarching purpose that fits all the individual stories together like panels in one unified mural.” In this new edition, Randy dives deeper in the Upper and Lower stories and shows how both perspectives will open your eyes to the richness and relevance of the Bible. Illuminating God’s master-plan from Genesis to our daily lives, The Heart of the Story will encourage you to experience the joy that comes from aligning your stories with God’s.

Anna Howard Shaw: The Story of a Pioneer is one of the classic autobiographies of American letters. A leader in the church as well as the suffrage movement, an M.D. as well as a powerful and eloquent lecturer, Anna Howard Shaw (1847-1919) was a close associate of Susan B. Anthony and the first woman to receive the United States Distinguished Service Medal. Born in England, Shaw immigrated to the United States as a child and in 1880 became the first woman ordained as a Methodist preacher. She subsequently left the pulpit to serve as president of the National American Suffrage Association--and later, as head of the Women's Committee of the Council of National Defense during World War I. Leontine T. C. Kelly was the first woman African American bishop in the United Methodist church. She retired in 1988.

When the famous South African fish scientist Professor JLB Smith published Old Fourlegs – The Story of the Coelacanth in 1956 he created an international sensation. After all, this 400-million-year-old fish, known only from fossil remains, was thought to have become extinct around 66 million years ago! JLB Smith’s dramatic account of the discovery of the first and second coelacanths in 1938 and 1952 turned him into a cult figure and put South African science on the world map. His book was eventually published in six English editions and translated into nine foreign languages. Mike Bruton’s The Annotated Old Fourlegs includes a facsimile reprint of the original book, to which he has added notes and images in the margins that provide an interesting and revealing commentary on Smith’s text, as well as new introductory and explanatory chapters that bring the coelacanth story up to date.

While film and video has long been used within psychological practice, researchers and practitioners have only just begun to explore the benefits of film and video production as therapy. This volume describes a burgeoning area of psychotherapy which employs the art of filmmaking and digital storytelling as a means of healing victims of trauma and abuse. It explores the ethical considerations behind this process, as well as its cultural and developmental implications within clinical psychology. Grounded in clinical theory and methodology, this multidisciplinary volume draws on perspectives from anthropology, psychiatry, psychology, and art therapy which support the use and integration of film/video-based therapy in practice.
