The Life and Prayers of Saint Augustine The Life and Prayers of Saint Augustine 4.6 stars / 32 reviews The Church has numerous fathers who have influenced its dogma in substantial ways. Although none of them can be singled out as the most pivotal theologian of Church history, it can certainly be said that Saint Augustine of Hippo has long been a central figure to Christian thought, informing both on the nature of God and the nature of Christian morality. He has been quoted throughout the ages by important Christian writers, such as Saint Thomas Aquinas, and has been listed as a strong influence by Pope Benedict XVI. Through his central place in the history of Christianity, some historians have appointed Saint Augustine particularly great importance in European and World history. They have called him the last man of the Classical Age, and the first medieval man. 2013-08-31 82 74811
Ride the White Horse:  A Checkered Jockey's Story of Racing, Rage and Redemption Ride the White Horse: A Checkered Jockey's Story of Racing, Rage and Redemption 4.7 stars / 23 reviews “I’ve experienced racing from the hooves up, rage from the inside out and redemption from heaven down,” says author Eddie Donnally, an ordained minister, endorsed chaplain and the only former jockey to win an Eclipse Award for Outstanding Newspaper Writing. An electric jockey with a juice machine, he rode on racing’s undercard, lived inside its underbelly and became a part of its underworld. From constant bulimia, broken bones and betrayal of Boston’s infamous Winter Hill Gang, he depicts an unseen side of Thoroughbred racing. Yet the five tons of his sweat that disappeared down “hot box” drains was nothing compared to his struggles with sibling sexual trauma, same-sex promiscuity and an addiction to crack cocaine that in seven months took him from sports writing and TV show hosting to grooming horses on a track’s backstretch. “I still dream of having a racehorse between my knees and love the people in horse racing.” he says. “But it was time to tell my truth about it. Seconds after a race fixing gangster slugged me, a pro hit man told me that he planned to kill me and put my naked body on Boston’s Suffolk Downs backstretch as a warning to other jockeys.” Starting in 1962, he rode for 19-years in some 10,000 races, winning over 1,000. Arrested for Sports Bribery in 1979 for a fixed race he won in 1974, he was forced to fend off the FBI who pressured him to collaborate their star witness’s testimony, as well as Boston's Winter Hill Gang members who would kill him if he did. Still, in 1980 he became a track publicity director and for seven years wrote horse racing for the Dallas Morning News. But a suicide attempt, a bipolar diagnosis and stays in two psyche wards were brief stops on a journey of self destruction that eventually landed him in jail. After God’s Shekinah Glory lit up his holding cell in 1996, he moved to the Los Angeles Dream Center, the former Queen of Angels Hospital turned city of refugee for the homeless and hopeless. Less than five years after leaving jail, he became a licensed Foursquare Minister and then Development Director for Race Track Chaplaincy of America, which places chaplains at horse tracks. In 2009 he returned to seminary, earned a Doctorate of Ministry and after a 16-month hospital residency works as a chaplain at a hospice and two hospitals near Clearwater, FL where he lives with his wife Sandi. “As a jockey, I used highly illegal, hand-held electrical prods on horses in races. I threw up ten times a day to make weight, sweated off tons and broke 13 bones. I acted out as a bisexual, manic depressive, crack cocaine addicted sportswriter. Even today when I read what I wrote about the literally insane life I lived, the same old shivers ripple up my spine. Only though a series of God’s miracles am I’m still alive to tell it at all." "I rode Revelation’s pale horse from hell and one day I’ll ride across heaven following Jesus on Revelation’s other white horse.” In conjunction with the book, he is writing a blog, "Recovery in Racing," which profiles horse racing's best known members of its recovering community.

MANUELA MANUELA 4.6 stars / 8 reviews MANUELA is a story of bravery, romance, patriotism, revolution, and intrigue based on the true life of a fascinating and powerful woman who has been compared to Evita Peron. In no other period did the world change so much as in the early 1800's. Not only was Europe engaged in the Napoleonic wars, but the South American people were fighting for independence from Spain. One of the most important statesmen and military heroes history has ever known emerged out of this period. Simn Bolvar, hailed as The Liberator, emancipated the countries now known as Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Per, and Bolivia. While Bolvar was conquering an area almost five times that of Napoleon's conquests, a woman was by his side whom history has nearly forgotten. Manuela Senz was a member of Bolvar's staff, a colonel in his army during a period when women were frowned on for doing anything other than looking pretty. She faced his greatest challenges with him, and even saved his life. Because she was a soul of intense integrity, she accumulated political enemies who made sure she was written out of the annals of the countries she helped to emancipate. In the many accounts of Bolvar's life, Manuela Senz is sometimes mentioned, but only in passing and then often inaccurately. This is the story of a brave woman, born in scandal, who rose to the heights of political power and who learned to love in a world torn apart by war. This is the love story of Simn Bolvar and Manuela Senz. 2000-11-01 184141
Masturbation Myths: Addiction to Chronic Masturbation and How to End the Excessive, Unhealthy Bad Game Masturbation Myths: Addiction to Chronic Masturbation and How to End the Excessive, Unhealthy Bad Game 4.6 stars / 7 reviews Masturbation is one of the hottest topics around, but not a lot of people out there are willing to admit that they do it - other than the guys and dolls on Reddit who taught the author what the word "fapping" means. But in this year, in these modern times, where are we as a culture with the state of masturbation as compared to prior years? Is it wrong or right to masturbate? Is it a simple stress reliever or something more sinister? Is it a healthy alternative to adultery or other types of sex outside of marriage? Where does the Christian church stand on the topic at large? More importantly, what does God think of masturbation? These are the questions that this tome will attempt to answer, and hopefully you'll find a friend within these pages that will help many souls along the journey.

Memories of World War II Memories of World War II 3.8 stars / 8 reviews Memories of World War, II is about war brides and heroes. It tells true stories of life on the home front interwoven with what was happening on the war front. Gasoline, sugar, coffee and shoes were rationed along with over 200 types of food. Automobiles, washing machines, refrigerators, irons, sheets and many other items were not produced until after the war. People gladly accepted rationing and shortages that helped the war effort. Most families had a loved one serving in the military, so they did everything they could to bring an end to the war. There are stories of boys in the air force and the navy, but the book follows the Texas 36th Division throughout the war in Europe. They were the first troops to land on enemy soil--Salerno, Italy. During the first week of battle, 3,497 were killed or wounded. When the war was over May 6, 1945, there were few Texans left in the Texas Division, but there were thousands of boys who went in as replacements that were proud to be adopted Texans. Forty years after the war was over, one adopted Texan from Indiana requested that “Beautiful Texas” be sung at his funeral. Colonel Vincent Lockhart was the Texas 36th Division historian. He checked Memories of World War II for historical accuracy. 2012-04-03 246 760296
The Five Sons of Charlie Gisby: A Family Saga The Five Sons of Charlie Gisby: A Family Saga 3.6 stars / 5 reviews In the third week of June 1859, Charles George Gisby was coaxed, squalling, into this world in the prosperous Victorian seaside resort of Margate. But young Charlie was not born into that prosperity. His birthplace was a house up a narrow lane called Alkali Row, which was then (and still is today) no more than an insignificant gap between the grand facades of the buildings on King Street sweeping down to the harbour. In a lifetime spanning nearly eighty years, Charlie would rise above his humble origins. He would become a fisherman, a shopkeeper and a businessman. He would serve in the defence of his country during the Great War. He would meet and marry two striking women, and suffer the dramatic loss of one of them. And he would father four fine sons, one not so fine and a daughter. His story and the story of his five sons are narrated in this family saga. It is a saga rich in colour and drama. Wars are fought in the course of it. There’s a memorable patriarch. There are untimely, mysterious and tragic deaths. There’s a plane crash and an accidental suicide. And there’s a larger-than-life cad and bounder. Charlie and his sons may have been “ordinary people”. But this is no ordinary saga. 2011-10-29 112 657162

1966: A Boomer's Diary 1966: A Boomer's Diary 0 stars / 0 reviews These are the actual entries from Lucille Bohannon's diary when she was an eighth grader living on a farm in 1966. The entries chroncle daily activities reflecting the innocence of the time. Her preoccupation with boys is a typical teenage girl's pasttime. Rant against parents and teachers are humorous in their mildness compared to the language of today's youth. Bohannon's cataloging of grades borders on obsession, but this too typifies the emphasis on achievement by the adults in her life. Sprinkled in occasionally are some eye-openers which also characterize the atmosphere of the '60s. 2014-03-16 77

Killing the Cobra  and other heirlooms (Threads Book 9) Killing the Cobra and other heirlooms (Threads Book 9) 0 stars / 0 reviews The author writes with affection and humour of some “family heirlooms” – Great Grandad Albert’s 1874 mantel-clock; a Mexican lady with swelling, child-rearing breasts; the delicately constructed suicide chair; the table of spoons; a hand-written account of lost rowlocks; a grimacing Indian trying to behead a cobra; some Australian serviette rings and a rusting LEC fridge, circa 1958, still used for chilling the beer. The author’s following of readers (well, Dave and Alan anyway) will be surprised to learn that there are just a couple of mild cuss words here so that, most unusually, this book carries NO FILTH WARNING. Sorry to disappoint. 2013-12-28 101
GABRIEL'S SILENT CARESSES AND THE MELODY OF ANGELIC WHISPERS GABRIEL'S SILENT CARESSES AND THE MELODY OF ANGELIC WHISPERS 0 stars / 0 reviews Through my life, I have always been aware and been around angels. With regret, I have hidden this side from most people, from family to friends. I came to realize that through our lives, everyone hides one thing or another from parents, friends, spouses, children, and society. To deny or hide the whole of you, even if it is just a small little item or detail, you stop living the life you were given. When you do not express or share all of you, you do not help or give to others the true gift from your heart. Nor do you feel fulfilled with your life. I finally found the strength and confronted my fear of showing all of who I am to the world. I hope my story, my tale, my journey will help you be who you are, whatever it may be, the whole you. Mostly I hope it does not take you 47 years to find your voice, your strength, your happiness. Enjoy Gabriel's Silent Caresses, and the melody of angelic whispers, and may your soul shine brighter then the North Star. Copyright 2013 - All Rights Reserved. 2013-03-17 89 1299845

Letting Go Letting Go 0 stars / 0 reviews This is a compendium of three books, all interlinked and written from Polly Fielding's own experiences:- 'And This Is My Adopted Daughter' gives a unique and moving insight into the innocent mind and spontaneous feelings of a child who seeks only to be loved and accepted by her adopted family. Later, as a young adult she begins a desperate search to find her natural mother... In 'A Mind To Be free' the reader is drawn compellingly into Polly's daily struggle with relationships, work, bringing up a family ... until she can no longer fight the pain of her past experiences without expert help. Despite severe self loathing and several suicide attempts, she finally weaves a path through the maze of the mental health system to reach her goal. 'Crossing the Borderline' tells how Polly finds the courage to slowly and painfully let go of the past and learns to cope in constructive ways with her powerful negative emotions, her sense of rejection and feelings of worthlessness. Polly expresses herself throughout in the present tense, which gives a striking immediacy to her writing.Reviews of the individual books:"I was emotionally drained reading Polly's story. I was there with her every step. It's cruel that anyone would treat a human being in this way, especially a child. It's a miracle that she did survive." Helen Robinson, former Chief Executive, Lincoln MIND, on 'And This Is My Adopted Daughter'“A Mind To Be Free highlights how extremely hard it is for a person whose complex difficulties do not fit into simple categories of mental illness to find effective treatment. The author has had to struggle not only with her own problems but also with the weaknesses of mental health care.” Rai Turton, Chartered Clinical Psychologist, on 'A Mind To Be Free'“A balanced account of the lived experience of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. This should be read by clinicians and service users alike. The first book to bring Dialectical Behaviour Therapy to life, this is a must-read for anybody who has an interest in this novel treatment.” Paul Barrett, Nurse Specialist (Community Personality Disorders Service), Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Trust on 'Crossing The Borderline' 2013-11-19 312 1346653
