Us Against Alzheimer’s: Stories of Family, Love, and Faith Audiobook

Us Against Alzheimer’s: Stories of Family, Love, and Faith

This groundbreaking multicultural anthology shares moving personal stories about the impacts of Alzheimer’s and dementia. An estimated 5.7 million Americans are afflicted by Alzheimer’s disease, including ten percent of those over sixty-five, and it is the sixth leading cause of death. But its effects are more pervasive: For the nearly six million sufferers, there are more than sixteen million family caregivers and many more family members. Alzheimer’s wreaks havoc not only on brain cells—it is a disease of the spirit and heart for not only those who suffer from it, but also for their families. This groundbreaking anthology presents forty narratives, both nonfiction and fiction, that together capture the impact and complexity of Alzheimer’s and other dementias on patients, as well as their caregivers and family. Deeply personal, recounting the wrenching course of a disease that kills a loved one twice—first they forget who they are, and then the body succumbs—these stories also show how witnessing the disease and caring for someone with it can be powerfully transformative, calling forth amazing strength and grace.

Revelation & Daniel (Dramatized) Audiobook

Revelation & Daniel (Dramatized)

Author: Various Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: April 2020

During these times, Bible Prophecy has become more prominent. Nevertheless Books like Revelation and Daniel can be intimidating. But did you know that studies have shown for years that simply hearing and speaking back information, in addition to reading it, can significantly aid in retention and understanding? That's why we are offering this text-only compilation of the two most popular Books of the Bible when it comes to End Times Prophecy. There is no human adornment whatsoever; no footnotes and no commentary. We trust God at His word that He Himself will lead us into all truth (John 16:13). The Revised Geneva Translation of the Holy Bible is a faithful 21st Century update of the very first widely-distributed Bible in English, the Geneva Bible of the 1500's. The RGT is one of only a handful of modern translations to be based on the same text the Reformers used. As with all Scripture translated prior to the American Civil War, The Geneva Bible was specifically designed to be SPOKEN and HEARD (because a large percentage of antebellum believers were illiterate). So, in other words, the RGT is the text of Luther, Tyndale and Calvin, faithfully revised and updated to be heard and spoken by the modern believer. (Matthew 7:24, Luke 8:21) Draw closer to God today, by His Spirit alone. (Exodus 20:25)

The King James Audio Bible Complete Audiobook

The King James Audio Bible Complete

Author: Various Narrator: Christopher Glyn Release Date: April 2020

Renowned for his hugely popular narration of the King James Bible, Christopher Glyn now brings his considerable inspirational talents to a unique new audiobook of the Complete Catholic Bible. And it’s not just Christopher’s voice that will be familiar to listeners – because this recording comprises his complete reading of KJV with the addition of the deuterocanonical books of Tobit, Judith, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Wisdom (Ecclesiasticus), Sirach, and Baruch as well as additions to the books of Esther and Daniel to make the original full complement of 77 books. For those who aren’t familiar with the distinction, the additional works are those recognized by the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Oriental Orthodox Churches as being part of scripture. Protestants, on the other hand, do not regard them as being divinely inspired, but do recognize them as important books to read. Who better, then, to bring all these words of God to life than Christopher Glyn! Drawing on a thirty-five-year career as a Christian broadcaster and narrator, he delivers these stories in a uniquely expressive style that is filled with wonder at the beauty and power of God’s Word, yet which is clear, natural and easy to understand. Praise for Christopher’s reading of the King James Bible: ‘…a rich listening experience. I'd recommend it enthusiastically to anyone looking for a fuller inspirational experience.’ ‘Beautiful to listen to! Also comforting. It draws you closer to God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit. God bless the publisher and the narrator who reads it so harmonically. Many thanks in Jesus name!!!’ ‘This a brilliant book to listen to. Even if you are not religious. you will enjoy it. I would recommend it to all.’

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ: According to Matthew, Mark, Luke, John Audiobook

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ: According to Matthew, Mark, Luke, John

Author: Various Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: April 2020

The Revised Geneva Translation (based on Shakespeare's favorite Bible translation) is a 21st Century update of the very first widely-distributed version of the Holy Bible in English, The Geneva Bible. It is specifically designed to be SPOKEN and HEARD, repeatedly, and is built on the premise that a crucial key to revival in the present can be found in one simple practice from the past—speaking God’s Word back to each other in community. To that end, the RGT strives to preserve the textual cadence and poetry that is so essential to Elizabethan literature, while at the same time carefully eliminating archaic and potentially distracting 16th Century words, phrases, and punctuation (such as employing the proper use of parentheses and quotation marks). It preserves the Geneva Bible’s pioneering poetic style (i.e. beginning every verse on a new line - which aids tremendously in memorization). However, unlike the Geneva Bibles of the 1500’s, there is no commentary or other human adornment. The RGT intentionally omits these things and makes single interpretive choices, based primarily on the translations of William Tyndale and F.H.A. Scrivener. The study of textual variants is left to other Bibles more properly suited for that purpose. In scholarly terms, the RGT is a formal or complete equivalency, based on the Byzantine text-type family of manuscripts (the same text Reformers like Luther, Tyndale and Calvin used). It is our hope that this project will be a living and active Bible for this generation, built for hearing and doing (Matthew 7:24), and that it will be profitable for teaching, convicting, correcting, and instructing in righteousness (2Timothy 3:16)… “…that your faith might not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” -1Corinthians 2:5

Psychedelic Mysteries of the Feminine: Creativity, Ecstasy, and Healing Audiobook

Psychedelic Mysteries of the Feminine: Creativity, Ecstasy, and Healing

Author: Various Narrator: Rosie Ackerman, Rosie Akerman Release Date: January 2020

An exploration of the connections between feminine consciousness and altered states from ancient times to present day • Explores the feminine qualities of the psychedelic self, ancient female roots of shamanism, and how altered states naturally tap into the female archetype • Discusses feminist psychedelic activism, female ecstatics, goddess consciousness, the dark feminine, and embodied paths to ecstasy • Includes contributions by Martina Hoffmann, Amanda Sage, Carl Ruck, and others Women have been shamans since time immemorial, not only because women have innate intuitive gifts, but also because the female body is wired to more easily experience altered states, such as during the process of birth. Whether female or male, the altered states produced by psychedelics and ecstatic trance expand our minds to tap into and enhance our feminine states of consciousness as well as reconnect us to the web of life. In this book, we discover the transformative powers of feminine consciousness and altered states as revealed by contributors both female and male, including revered scholars, visionary artists, anthropologists, modern shamans, witches, psychotherapists, and policy makers. The book begins with a deep look at the archetypal dimensions of the feminine principle and how entheogens give us open access to these ancient archetypes, including goddess consciousness and the dark feminine. The contributors examine the female roots of shamanism, including the role of women in the ancient rites of Dionysus, the Eleusinian Sacrament, and Norse witchcraft. They explore psychedelic and embodied paths to ecstasy, such as trance dance, holotropic breathwork, and the similarities of giving birth and taking mind-altering drugs. Looking at the healing potential of the feminine and altered states, they discuss the power of plant medicines, including ayahuasca, and the recasting of the medicine-woman archetype for the modern world. They explore the feminine in the creative process and discuss feminist psychedelic activism, sounding the call for more female voices in the psychedelic research community. Sharing the power of "femtheogenic" wisdom to help us move beyond a patriarchal society, this book reveals how feminine consciousness, when intermingled with psychedelic knowledge, carries and imparts the essence of inclusivity, interconnectedness, and balance our world needs to heal and consciously evolve.

A groundbreaking anthology offers a potent rallying cry and theory of change Harvey Weinstein. Brett Kavanaugh. Jeffrey Epstein. Donald Trump. The most infamous abusers in modern American history are being outed as women speak up to publicly expose behavior that was previously only whispered about -- and it's both making an impact, and sparking a backlash. From the leading, agenda-setting feminist editors of Yes Means Yes, Believe Me brings readers into the evolving landscape of the movement against sexual violence, and outlines how trusting women is the critical foundation for future progress. In Believe Me, contributors ask and answer the crucial question: What would happen if we didn't just believe women, but acted as though they matter? If we take women's experiences of online harassment seriously, it will transform the internet. If we listen to and center survivors, we could revolutionize our systems of justice. If we believe Black women when they talk about pain, we will save countless lives. With contributions from many of the most important voices in feminism today, Believe Me is an essential roadmap for the #MeToo era and beyond.

Sacred Sleep: Bible Verses for Bedtime Audiobook

Sacred Sleep: Bible Verses for Bedtime

Author: Various Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: November 2019

Peace. Where does it come from? In John 14:27, Jesus says, 'Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you.' The follower of Christ believes peace comes only from Him - both in this world and in the next - through the hearing of His word, by the power of His Spirit. His Word makes me wise (Matthew 7:24). It gives me fellowship with Him (Luke 8:21). It sanctifies me (John 17:17). Indeed, it is the very source of my faith (Romans 10:17). Sacred Sleep was created with this Biblical model of peace in mind, to form a unique bedtime experience that will help you get the rest you need while deepening your faith and drawing you closer to God. Combined with a scholarly Introduction by Robert J. Bagley, this groundbreaking sleep aid contains some of the most well-loved verses in Scripture, carefully selected and presented in such a way as to let the water of the Word and worship wash over you every time you experience them. Our prayer is that not only will you obtain 'sound wisdom and discretion' from these verses (Proverbs 3:21), but that "you will [also] lie down and your sleep will be sweet." (Proverbs 3:24) So turn off the day (Matthew 6:34), and invite the Lord into a peaceful time of Sacred Sleep tonight.

Witness Christmas: An Intimate Celebration of Scripture and Song

Author: Various Narrator: Steve Cook Release Date: November 2019

In Luke 2:14, God's angelic host proclaims to the shepherds outside Bethlehem, "Peace on Earth! And good will to all who please Him!" In Philippians 4:8-9, Paul lays out what true worship looks like. Then, he connects it directly to peace. In both cases, the source of peace is the same: The Word of God. It makes me wise (Matthew 7:24). It gives me fellowship with Him (Luke 8:21). It sanctifies me (John 17:17). Indeed, it is the source of my faith (Romans 10:17). "Witness Christmas" was created with these biblical models of peace in mind. It combines holy Scripture with the soothing Word-centered modern folk hymns of Ordinary Time to create a truly unique worship experience that we hope draws you closer to God and brings you peace, both in this life and the next. Blessings today and Merry Christmas!
