Big Dummies of the Bible Book Excerpt:

Have you ever done something so dumb you wince at the thought of it? Well, you're not alone. The Bible is full of characters who made some shockingly dumb moves. Here are a few examples: A guy who sold his right to his family's estate for a bowl of soup. The couple who had the pleasure of having no rules, no boundaries--except one . . . a rule they decided to break anyway. The guy who fell in love with a woman who clearly was doing her best to have him killed. In Big Dummies of the Bible, bestselling author Stephen Miller shows readers some shockingly dumb moves by men and women of the Bible. Yet thousands of years later, we're still making the same mistakes, and the results often turn out to be as grievous now as they were for these biblical characters. Miller teaches us how to avoid these mistakes and the inevitable accompanying pain and heartache.

Eco 7 Zionists Green Freaks and Hasidic Hippies Book Excerpt:

Have you ever been confused when people talk about "sustainable living?" Do you want to know about the real Holy Land, the one that doesn't get shown on the news? Ever wondered what living in a communal village would really be like? In September of 2011, the author went to Israel to answer all these questions for himself. Eco 7: Zionists, Green Freaks, and Hasidic Hippies is the insightful and inspiring memoir of his five months on the Hava-ve-Adam Ecological farm in central Israel. Along the way, he does indeed meet Zionists, green freaks, and Hasidic hippies, and he learns from sometimes painful experience the fine art of vagabonding in a foreign country. Over time, he comes to understand the true meaning of not just permaculture but also family and community. Far from being a war-torn military state, this book shows an Israel that is alive and ever-changing, as well as a study in contrasts, through the eyes of one who was there.

Hank Greenberg Book Excerpt:

Once in a great while there appears a baseball player who transcends the game and earns universal admiration from his fellow players, from fans, and from the American people. Such a man was Hank Greenberg, whose dynamic life and legendary career are among baseball's most inspiring stories. The Story of My Life tells the story of this extraordinary man in his own words, describing his childhood as the son of Eastern European immigrants in New York; his spectacular baseball career as one of the greatest home-run hitters of all time and later as a manager and owner; his heroic service in World War II; and his courageous struggle with cancer. Tall, handsome, and uncommonly good-natured, Greenberg was a secular Jew who, during a time of widespread religious bigotry in America, stood up for his beliefs. Throughout a lifetime of anti-Semitic abuse he maintained his dignity, becoming in the process a hero for Jews throughout America and the first Jewish ballplayer elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

The Bible For Dummies appeals to people of all faiths, as well as those who don't practice any particular religion, by providing interfaith coverage of the entire Bible and the often fascinating background information that makes the Bible come alive.
