New York Times bestselling author and Bible expert Bart Ehrman reveals how Jesus became God in the minds of his followers and how this belief became dogma in the first few centuries of the early church. The claim at the heart of the Christian faith is that Jesus of Nazareth was, and is, God. Leading Bible scholar and historical Jesus expert Bart Ehrman reveals how an apocalyptic prophet from the backwaters of rural Galilee crucified for crimes against the state came to be thought of as equal with the one God Almighty, Creator of all things. But how did this transformation of Jesus occur? How did he move from being a Jewish prophet to being God?

Ungifted intelligence redefined : the truth about talent, practice, creativity, and the many paths to greatness by Scott Barry Kaufman ( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Child prodigies. Gifted and Talented Programs. Perfect 2400s on the SAT. Sometimes it feels like the world is conspiring to make the rest of us feel inadequate. Those children tapped as possessing special abilities will go on to achieve great things, while the rest of us have little chance of realizing our dreams. Right? In Ungifted, cognitive psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman-who was relegated to special education as a child-sets out to show that the way we interpret traditional metrics of intelligence is misguided. Kaufman explores the latest research in genetics and neuroscience, as well as evolutionary, developmental, social, positive, and cognitive psychology, to challenge the conventional wisdom about the childhood predictors of adult success. He reveals that there are many paths to greatness, and argues for a more holistic approach to achievement that takes into account each young person's personal goals, individual psychology, and developmental trajectory. In so doing, he increases our appreciation for the intelligence and diverse strengths of prodigies, savants, and late bloomers, as well as those with dyslexia, autism, schizophrenia, and ADHD. Combining original research, anecdotes, and a singular compassion, Ungifted proves that anyone-even those without readily observable gifts at any single moment in time-can become great

Did Jesus exist? the historical argument for Jesus of Nazareth by Bart D Ehrman ( )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Large numbers of atheists, humanists, and conspiracy theorists are raising one of the most pressing questions in the history of religion: "Did Jesus exist at all?" Was he invented out of whole cloth for nefarious purposes by those seeking to control the masses? Or was Jesus such a shadowy figure -- far removed from any credible historical evidence -- that he bears no meaningful resemblance to the person described in the Bible? In Did Jesus Exist? historian and Bible expert Bart Ehrman confronts these questions, vigorously defends the historicity of Jesus, and provides a compelling portrait of the man from Nazareth. The Jesus you discover here may not be the Jesus you had hoped to meet -- But he did exist, whether we like it or not. -- Publisher

It doesn't require sifting through chapters of high-minded financial advice or digging up your past spending history. It assumes you need help right now, and gives it to you. You will learn to: downsize expenses without feeling deprived; allocate money as it comes in and put together an easy-to-manage bill-paying plan; adjust for inevitable overspending; and, pay off debt without gouging expenses and (believe it or not) start saving. The plan is clear, easy, and takes just five minutes a day-and it doesn't matter if you make $14,000 or $14 million. With straightforward daily spending strategies and effortless expense tracking tools, you will soon find yourself on the road to financial freedom-all before the next billing cycle"--From publisher
Getting green done hard truths from the front lines of the sustainability revolution by Auden Schendler ( )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Soccer moms drive Priuses. Sport utility vehicles are going hybrid. Families are using hemp shopping bags. More and more companies are developing "green" buildings. What's more, the business consultants say going green is easy and profitable. In reality, though, many green-leaning businesses, families, and governments are still fiddling with the small stuff while the planet burns. Why? Because implementing sustainability is brutally difficult. In this book, Auden Schendler, a sustainable business foot soldier with fifteen year's worth of experience, gives us a peek under the hood of the green movement. The consultants, he argues, are clueless. Fluorescent bulbs might be better for our atmosphere, but what do you say to the boutique hotel owner who thinks they detract from his? And how do you convince a chain-smoking karate expert mechanic to put biodiesel in his vehicles?" "Scientists tell us we have to cut CO₂ emissions 80 percent by mid-century. That's going to take more than a recycling program. We'll only solve our problems if we're realistic about the challenge of climate change. In this eye-opening, inspiring book, Schendler illuminates the path
Betterness economics for humans by Umair Haque ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Betterness: Economics for Humans is a powerful call to arms for a post-capitalist economy. Umair Haque argues that just as positive psychology revolutionized our understanding of mental health by recasting the field as more than just treating mental illness, we need to rethink our economic paradigm. Why? Because business as we know it has reached a state of diminishing returns--though we work harder and harder, we never seem to get anywhere
The Darwin economy liberty, competition, and the common good by Robert H Frank ( Recording )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The premise of economist Adam Smith's 'invisible hand'--a tenet of market economics--is that competitive self-interest shunts benefits to the community. But that is the exception rather than the rule, argues writer Robert H. Frank. Charles Darwin's idea of natural selection is a more accurate reflection of how economic competition works . . . because individual and species benefits do not always coincide. Highlighting reasons for market failure and the need to cut waste, Frank argues that we can domesticate our wild economy by taxing higher-end spending and harmful industrial emissions."--Nature
