Description : The Need to Say No is a simple inspirational guide and instructional manual to help the reader gain command of their relationships by setting boundaries. Whether in love, work, family, or the world, the need to say no is imperative at times. And rather than accepting another transgression or being bullied, learning to set healthy boundaries is essential for our health and well-being at home, in the workplace, or the communities in which we live. The Need to Say No includes helpful advice on how to say no without fear and without injury to either party. It is an essential book for anyone who has said yes too often or just accepted an unacceptable status quo. Emile M. Cioran wrote, "Tyranny destroys or strengthens the individual." Indeed if we allow ourselves to accept a fate without setting boundaries through our will and actions, we can be destroyed emotionally, psychologically, and even physically. Many people have to learn the skills to defend themselves from the inappropriate demands of others, and for that reason The Need to Say No is written. Whether dealing with an abusive love partner, an inappropriate boss, a child that demands everything, a societal condition that needs to stop, or any other kind of bullies, we have the power within ourselves to change the outcomes for the better: to be bullish without being bulldozed. And this better outcome can mean peace at home, success at work, and real change in the world. The Need to Say No uses the metaphor of a bull to examine the behaviors of bullies and boundary violators and also includes mythological, historical and contemporary bull stories and uses them to identify the 10 bull archetypes of aggressive personalities you often encounter and how to deal effectively with them. The Need to Say No provides inspiration and guidance in an entertaining and positive way to help us improve our lives through the decision to say no. Rich with quotes, illustrations, anecdotes, examples, tips, and more this book delivers a profound way to reach a positive conclusion: by saying "no."

Description : "In 1934, Anglican priest H. R. L (""Dick"") Sheppard challenged young men in England to pledge to ""say NO!"" to participation in future wars. The response to his call was so overwhelmingly enthusiastic that the next year Sheppard published We Say NO! The Plain Man's Guide to Pacifism and founded the Peace Pledge Union, a pacifist organization that's still going strong in Britain today. His book, a best-seller during his lifetime, has become a classic in Christian pacifism. It contains the fundamentals of Sheppard's call for a Christian response to violence that remains loyal to the ""constructively revolutionary"" spirit of Jesus. Sheppard's commitment to the gospel of nonviolence made him slightly disreputable within the Church of England but earned him a lasting place among twentieth-century champions of pacifism. This new edition of We Say NO!, completely annotated and prefaced with an introduction that provides detailed information about Sheppard and the peace movement he launched, aims to present his case for Christian pacifism to a new generation.

Description : For centuries Augustine's theory of free will has been used to explain why God is not the author of evil and humans are morally responsible for sin. Yet, when he embraced the doctrines of unconditional election and operative grace, Augustine began modifying his theory of free will. His final works claim his evolved notion of free will remained consistent with his early view, but this claim has provoked significant debate. Some scholars take him at his word, interpreting his teachings on free will in light of his later predestination teachings. Others reject his claim of continuity and warn of great inconsistencies between his early and later works. Few have undertaken a thorough study of Augustine's works to compare his early notion of free will with his later theory of predestination. Free To Say No? is a detailed study of Augustine's work that presents clear evidence in Augustine's own words for a significant discontinuity between his early and later theories--especially the disappearance of the will's freedom to say No--and offers some fascinating insights as to why Augustine proposed such drastic changes.
