Coming out of the Closet without Coming Apart at the Seams is a witty yet stirring testimony of one lesbian’s struggles in and out of the closet. As a teenager, Gail peeked out of her closest from time to time. But, her fear of being ridiculed and misunderstood kept her from taking any chances. During Bible College, the closet became her home. After years of warped counseling in ex-gay ministries, she grew tired of trying to change. So, eventually, she took a risk. She risked losing her family, her friends and her faith. She risked it all . . . for the chance to be herself. “Coming out of the Closet …” is more than a memoir. It is an ideal read for anyone seeking to reconcile homosexuality and faith. Combining her Bible College background with unique story-telling abilities, Gail created a practical and powerful defense against religious and political agendas. Gail’s story is definitely out of the ordinary. She’s come completely out of her shell. Some will think she’s out of her mind Others will think she’s out of this world. But, no matter what, Gail has successfully come out of the closet without coming apart at the seams.

When children are sold into slavery-what good is Jesus? When wretched disease takes a loved one's life-what good is Jesus? When marriages crumble and jobs disappoint-what good is Jesus? Many know of Jesus, but few actually know Him. The real entity of Jesus has been tainted by how His followers have portrayed His image in their lives. The institution of religion has overtaken the beauty of relationship, and many Christians are walking away with a bitter taste. Faced with declining opportunities, a war-torn globe, and seemingly-insurmountable crises, many millennials are asking the sincere question: what good is Jesus? Pastor Marv Nelson doesn't avoid tough questions; instead, he tackles issues head-on with love and wisdom. Examining sexuality, politics, racial tensions, suffering, and more, Nelson addresses these problems through a relational rather than religious approach and shows us just what good Jesus really is.

Dear Christianity, Look, I know you meant well, and I know you did the best you could, but I think it's time that we have an intervention. You've been getting it all wrong. I don't just mean the thing with being self-righteous and not feeding the hungry or caring for the misfortunate. Although that's certainly a part of it. No. It's more than that. It's much more. And I know you prefer everything to be nice and for there to be only clean language. That's part of the problem too. You see, your failure is so bad that I can't help but use bad words. So if you kindly would, please, give this a read. I promise you'll learn a lot about your Bible you did not know, and you'll never see your faith the same way ever again. And maybe then you can get it right for a change. From the author of the blog, Bible Studies from an Asshole, comes this humorous, heartfelt, and outrageously honest and eye-opening work. The Christian faith may never be the same again.

The streets were cold and heartless. A harsh reality that surrounded those caught in its terrible grip. There seemed to be no end. No mercy. Every sort of evil lurked around every corner. Every one was looking for the next fix. Some glimmer of hope that would sustain them through another day. A small mission called simply ‘The Center’ was a small light in the dark. A place of safety. A haven for kids looking for an escape from the dark. The Center offered something new. A fix that lasted. Not a temporary high or buzz. The Center offered salvation. Salvation from the death that was on the street. Pastor Lelon and Father Rayne went into the dark to bring hope to those who were lost. There were so many kids. Drugs and alcohol were as common as soft drinks. Violence ruled and money was the bottom line. The job seemed impossible but with God all things are possible. The answer was simple. Faith and trust in God. Armed with these the men would be successful but when the enemies fiery darts came would they be able to stand firm or would these men of God fall? There were no half measures. It was an all out battle for each soul and there could only be one victor. It all came down, as always, to choices.

Gabe is a teenage Jehovah’s Witness convinced God will kill him at Armageddon for masturbating. But Gabe’s not alone: there’s Peter, who writes swear words in the margins of his papers; Jihyun, the Korean kid who subsists on Ho Hos and Doritos; and Camille, who follows Gabe around, trying to be his girlfriend. There’s also Gabe’s mom, who sleeps sixteen hours a day, and his dad, an elder who decides the fate of sinners (like the married couple who confesses to accidentally having anal sex). There’s Brother Miller, an elder with a Napoleon complex, who accompanies Gabe from door to door, encouraging him to knock with confidence, and Sister Feeney, who looks forward to the day she can move into a Spanish-style house after its owner dies at the end of the world. Luckily for Gabe, there is Uncle Jeff, who used to tour with Santana and now gives Gabe the only valuable girl advice he ever receives. It's hard when school days are spent dodging questions about your weird religion and weekends mean preaching house to house. Life looks dreary until Gabe falls for Camille’s beautiful older sister and begins to see her as the answer to his frustrations.

The Shōbōgenzō (The Treasury of the True Dharma Eye) is a revered eight-hundred-year-old Zen Buddhism classic written by the Japanese monk Eihei Dōgen. Despite the timeless wisdom of his teachings, many consider the book difficult to understand and daunting to read. In Don’t Be a Jerk, Zen priest and bestselling author Brad Warner, through accessible paraphrasing and incisive commentary, applies Dōgen’s teachings to modern times. While entertaining and sometimes irreverent, Warner is also an astute scholar who sees in Dōgen very modern psychological concepts, as well as insights on such topics as feminism and reincarnation. Warner even shows that Dōgen offered a “Middle Way” in the currently raging debate between science and religion. For curious readers worried that Dōgen’s teachings are too philosophically opaque, Don’t Be a Jerk is hilarious, understandable, and wise.

Jesus Cries When You Touch Yourself is a comic monologue written in tribute to the late George Carlin on the topic of religious bullshit in America. Influenced by Carlin, Friedrich Nietzsche, Bill Maher, Monty Python, and the writers of South Park, the author uses constant mockery and absurdist humor on a tour of ridiculous beliefs in America. With devastating logic, Jesus, the most beloved character in all of history, is revealed to be the world's greatest pedophile. After all, if Jesus is God, then everyday he watches billions of children take off their clothes and hundreds of millions of others go poop. Well, the great Poop Inspector would be a pedophile, if only he wasn't merely our imaginary friend. From an invisible man in the sky that watches millions of people masturbate each day, to Jesus ascending into heaven and becoming an astronaut, to Catholics eating Jesus' penis every Sunday, Jesus Cries When You Touch Yourself contrasts intense realism with comical religious absurdity in the most ambitious ridicule of religion ever written.

What happens when the good life goes up in smoke and the ashes of your health, hopes, and plans are all that remain? That was Tim Brotzman’s reality when a car crash cut a devastating swath through the life of his dreams, leaving him nothing but wreckage, sorrow, and loss. Are you there, now? Are you or a loved one living a life you never expected—a life of uninvited limitation, suffering, and lack? Are you wondering whether you can make, or whether your current life is worth living? What “Never Give Up” Looks Like addresses these very questions. It describes in plain language a life ravaged by calamity and restored in hope. Raw and redemptive, it proves that when all seems lost—love, physical ability, career, family, and hope—you can arise from brokenness and rediscover life’s unrelenting beauty. In this unvarnished account, you will discover how a downward spiral became the upward path to a new kind of wholeness and fulfillment—to abiding victory, the defeat of hopelessness, and the power to share real life with others.
