The Marvelous Pigness of Pigs

By Joel Salatin
Authors:
Joel Salatin
Joel Salatin is perhaps the nation's best known farmer, whose environmentally friendly, sustainable Polyface Farms has been featured in Food, Inc. and Time magazine. Now in his first book written for a faith audience, Salatin offers a deeply personal argument for earth stewardship, and calls for fellow Christians to join him in looking to the Bible for a foodscape in line with spiritual truth. Salatin urges Christians to rethink America's allegiance to cheap corporate food that destroys creation in its production, impoverishes third world countries, and supports oligarchical interests. He wonders why Christians ignore and even revel in unhealthy eating habits and factory farming that runs counter to God's design. With scripture and Biblical stories, Salatin presents an alternative and shows readers that in appreciating the pigness of pigs, we celebrate the Glory of God.

Along with teaching underlying theory, this book also offers practical options, suggestions, examples, and even reminder lists so you can swiftly put what you learn to use.

Make Your Bed

By Admiral William H. McRaven
Authors:
Admiral William H. McRaven
Making your bed is a simple act with powerful consequences. To rise in the morning and complete the first task of the day will give you motivation to do more; to accomplish more. The bed also represents you. Few things in your home are more personal. Making your bed is a reflection of your discipline, your pride and your personal habits. If you can't get up in the morning and make your bed, what else are you incapable of doing? If you want to change the world, or just make yourself a little better, start off by making your bed. MAKE YOUR BED is a attractively packaged gift book, perfect for Commencement, Father's Day and the business and military audience, based on a speech the Admiral gave at University of Texas graduation, which went viral to the tune of almost 25 million views. The speech itself focuses on the ten lessons Admiral McRaven learned from Navy Seal training that will help readers face and overcome challenges in their lives and ultimately change the world. Lessons include "find someone to help you paddle," "don't back down from sharks," "start singing when you're up to your neck in muck," and of course, "make your bed." Building from McRaven's powerful speech, this book will inspire readers to achieve more with thoughtful determination, hard work and the spirit of service.
