Maybe I DO Want to Read this Book Book Description :

Take a wild but spiritually eye-opening ride through the pages of the Bible and learn the stories they don’t teach in Sunday school. In this work, Paul Kasch is not afraid to offer sound commentary on the R-rated and X-rated content found in the scriptures. After all, it is all part of God’s Word. You will come away from this text spiritually charged, understanding that God did not always use perfect people to accomplish His will. That means he can even use the likes of you and me. A bit of warning, however: You might be absolutely blown away by the stories of some of the people whom the Christ genealogy came through. This 30,000+ word e-book has been professionally edited and specially formatted for all devices. We promise a smooth electronic re...

Lust on Trial Book Description :

Anthony Comstock was America’s first professional censor. From 1873 to 1915, as Secretary of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, Comstock led a crusade against lasciviousness, salaciousness, and obscenity that resulted in the confiscation and incineration of more than three million pictures, postcards, and books he judged to be obscene. But as Amy Werbel shows in this rich cultural and social history, Comstock’s campaign to rid America of vice in fact led to greater acceptance of the materials he deemed objectionable, offering a revealing tale about the unintended consequences of censorship. In Lust on Trial, Werbel presents a colorful journey through Comstock’s career that doubles as a new history of post–Civil War America’s ...

George and Lizzie Book Description :

From “America’s librarian” and NPR books commentator Nancy Pearl comes an emotional, “Anne-Tyler-esque” (Library Journal) debut novel about an unlikely marriage at a crossroads. George and Lizzie are a couple, meeting as college students and marrying soon after graduation, but no one would ever describe them of being soulmates. George grew up in a warm and loving family—his father an orthodontist, his mother a stay-at-home mom—while Lizzie was the only child of two famous psychologists, who viewed her more as an in-house experiment than a child to love. After a decade of marriage, nothing has changed—George is happy; Lizzie remains…unfulfilled. But when George discovers that Lizzie has been searching for the whereabouts of an old bo...
