Food, Inc. is guaranteed to shake up our perceptions of what we eat. This powerful documentary deconstructing the corporate food industry in America was hailed by Entertainment Weekly as ''more than a terrific movie - it's an important movie.'' Aided by expert commentators such as Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser, the film poses questions such as: Where has my food come from, and who has processed it? What are the giant agribusinesses and what stake do they have in maintaining the status quo of food production and consumption? How can I feed my family healthy foods affordably? Expanding on the film's themes, the book Food, Inc. will answer those questions through a series of challenging essays by leading experts and thinkers. This book will encourage those inspired by the film to learn more about the issues, and act to change the world.

For most people, the global war over genetically modified foods is a distant and confusing one. The battles are conducted in the mystifying language of genetics. A handful of corporate "life science" giants, such as Monsanto, are pitted against a worldwide network of anticorporate ecowarriors like Greenpeace. And yet the possible benefits of biotech agriculture to our food supply are too vital to be left to either partisan. The companies claim to be leading a new agricultural revolution that will save the world with crops modified to survive frost, drought, pests, and plague. The greens warn that "playing God" with plant genes is dangerous. It could create new allergies, upset ecosystems, destroy biodiversity, and produce uncontrollable mutations. Worst of all, the antibiotech forces say, a single food conglomerate could end up telling us what to eat. In Food, Inc., acclaimed journalist Peter Pringle shows how both sides in this overheated conflict have made false promises, engaged in propaganda science, and indulged in fear-mongering. In this urgent dispatch, he suggests that a fertile partnership between consumers, corporations, scientists, and farmers could still allow the biotech harvest to reach its full potential in helping to overcome the problem of world hunger, providing nutritious food and keeping the environment healthy.

Made to Crave is the missing link between a woman’s desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen. The reality is we were made to crave. Craving isn’t a bad thing. But we must realize God created us to crave more of him. Many of us have misplaced that craving by overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction. If you are struggling with unhealthy eating habits, you can break the “I’ll start again Monday” cycle, and start feeling good about yourself today. Learn to stop beating yourself up over the numbers on the scale. Discover that your weight loss struggle isn’t a curse but rather a blessing in the making, and replace justifications that lead to diet failure with empowering go-to scripts that lead to victory. You can reach your healthy weight goal – and grow closer to God in the process. This is not a how-to book. This is not the latest and greatest dieting plan. This book is the necessary companion for you to use alongside whatever healthy lifestyle plan you choose. This is a book and Bible study to help you find the "want to" in making healthy lifestyle choices.

Where's the beef? In the news, that's where. More than ever, meat is making the headlines and growing numbers of people are becoming more informed and passionate about what they eat. The facts are compelling: contamination cases are on the rise, obesity has become pandemic in the United States, and the animal agriculture sector is responsible for more human-induced greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector. It's no wonder that millions of people are thinking twice about meat. An information-packed, lively, and informative little guide, Gristle is for the growing number of people--from omnivores to vegans--who are thinking twice about the consequences of our industrial factory-farming system of raising animals for food. Multi-platinum musician Moby and leading food policy activist and expert Miyun Park have brought together fifteen of the country's leading voices on this issue--an eclectic group from such diverse backgrounds as farming, workers' rights activism, professional athletics, science, environmental sustainability, food business, and animal welfare advocacy--who together eloquently lay out how and why industrial animal agriculture unnecessarily harms workers, communities, the environment, our health, our wallets, and animals. In the tradition of Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma, Gristle combines hard-hitting facts with a light touch and includes fascinating charts and illustrations depicting the stark realities of America's industrial food system.

Judah Smith digs deep to answer the most common and the most difficult questions about Jesus, a man so few understand and so many desperately need. In Jesus Is, Judah Smith explores a number of topics that reveal Jesus’ purpose for coming, what He accomplished while He was here, and what that means for us.

The 8-week Jesus Is Participant's Guide, intended for use with the DVD-based study of the same title, will help participants discover how to have a deeper, lasting relationship with Jesus, and to commune with and grow in Him. Judah will show you that Jesus is more than a good teacher, more than an inspiring leader. He is the point of all life.

This 14-week curriculum is designed to help people attentively read every word of the Bible in 90 days. The advantage of reading through the Bible in 90 days is that it allows you to read the Scriptures as a story. Reading the Bible cover to cover gives people a sense of cohesiveness and connectedness to God and his unfolding purpose for humanity. This curriculum uses the TNIV Thinline Large Print Bible and, in order to read the Bible cover to cover in 90 days, you only need to read 12 pages per day.Some of the benefits from reading the Bible in 90 days:Relationship -- The most important benefit to be gained from our reading of the entire Bible is a deepened relationship with our Maker. We read God's Word to know about him, to learn about us, and to understand and experience the relationship between God and us.Ownership -- Another striking benefit of reading the Bible from cover to cover is the sense of ownership that many people feel after reading the last word of Revelation. It's not until we've read every word that we've fully unwrapped this present that God so lovingly gave to us. And, it's not until we've read it once that we realize how easy and natural it is to read it at any time.Confidence -- With this reading comes a level of confidence. Instead of relying on others to tell us the Word of God, our reading gives us a confidence that can only come from experiencing the Word ourselves. When we experience God's Word in its entirety, we can rely on the fact that the Bible is there for us any time we need it.Knowledge -- Many people try to study the Bible in-depth without any knowledge of it. We read the Bible cover to cover to gain knowledge. We will not gain perfect knowledge, nor will we then be ready to go out and teach a course in seminary. What we will have is a general knowledge about what's in the Bible, and where it is in the Bible ... a knowledge that we are unlikely to gain through any other means.By reading the Bible in 90 days, we develop a ROCK solid foundation for our faith and relationship with God.The 14-week curriculum allows participants to experience:* Reviews and previews of each week's reading through video teaching* Small group discussion for learning, encouragement and accountabilityCover to Cover works with any size group, from small groups of 4-12 to large groups of 15 to 150 or more.
