All human beings have spontaneous needs for happiness, self-understanding, and love. In Feeling Good: The Science of Well Being, psychiatrist Robert Cloninger describes a way to coherent living that satisfies these strong basic needs through growth in the uniquely human gift of self-awareness. The scientific findings that led Dr. Cloninger to expand his own views in a stepwise manner during 30 years of research and clinical experience are clearly presented so that readers can consider the validity of his viewpoint for themselves. The principles of well-being are based on a non-reductive scientific paradigm that integrates findings from all the biomedical and psychosocial sciences. Reliable methods are described for measuring human thought and social relationships at each step along the path of self-aware consciousness. Practical mental exercises for stimulating the growth of self-awareness are also provided. The methods are supported by data from brain imaging, genetics of personality, and longitudinal biopsychosocial studies. Feeling Good: The Science of Well-Being will be of value to anyone involved in the sciences of the mind or the treatment of mental disorders. It will also interest theologians, philosophers, social scientists, and lay readers because it provides contemporary scientific concepts and language for addressing the perennial human questions about being, knowledge, and conduct.
Legality is a profound work in analytical jurisprudence, the branch of legal philosophy which deals with metaphysical questions about the law. In the twentieth century, there have been two major approaches to the nature of law. The first and most prominent is legal positivism, which draws a sharp distinction between law as it is and law as it might be or ought to be. The second are theories that view law as embedded in a moral framework. Scott Shapiro is a positivist, but one who tries to bridge the differences between the two approaches. In Legality, he shows how law can be thought of as a set of plans to achieve complex human goals. His new “planning” theory of law is a way to solve the “possibility problem”, which is the problem of how law can be authoritative without referring to higher laws.

The story of God written in intimate love letters just for you. Dr. Larry Crabb knows that if we could see the larger story of Godand humanity, our world would never be the same. That story is found inlarge part in the sixty-six letters of the Bible. Written in a conversational first person, as if God is speakingdirectly to us, Dr. Crabb looks at each individual book in scriptureand boils it down to a one- or two-sentence message to us from thatparticular book. He then unpacks each sentence in a short chapteranswering the question, What does God want me to hear from this loveletter? The book's epilogue then fits all sixty-six pieces of thejigsaw puzzle together into one coherent paragraph and reveals thebeautiful picture of what God has been about since the creation of theworld. Far from being comprehensive, this is a personal approach tohelping readers know God and his great love for them, his message forall mankind, and how their lives fit into His larger story.
