Inspired by the groundbreaking publication of How Wide the Divide?: a Mormon and an Evangelical in Conversation (InterVarsity, 1997), Robert L. Millet, a life long Mormon, former Dean of Religious Education, and currently a professor of religious education at Brigham Young University and Gregory C.V. Johnson, an ordained Baptist pastor from Utah and a former Mormon, meet and begin their own conversation. Eventually they take their dialogues public, appearing in various LDS, Evangelical, and academic venues. The first part of this book is a dialogue between the two authors themselves. The second part is a Q & A with Mormon and Evangelical audiences. Throughout this work the authors provide guiding principles of constructive conversation and promote the concept of "convicted civility." --P. [4] of cover.

In real life [electronic resource] : love, lies, and identity in the digital age

Schulman, Nev.
New York : Grand Central Publishing, 2014.
1 online resource
From the host of MTV's #1 show Catfish comes the definitive guide for millenials about how to connect with people authentically in today's increasingly digital world. IN REAL LIFE: Love, Lies, and Identity in the Digital Age Nev Schulman is beloved. He is the host of the wildly popular TV series Catfish which investigates online relationships to determine whether they are based on truth or fiction (spoiler: it's almost always fiction). Nev has become the Dr. Drew of online dating for millenials; his fans view him as the ultimate authority on this subject matter. Nev's clout in this area springs from his own experience with a deceptive online romance, about which he made a critically acclaimed 2010 documentary (also called Catfish). In that film Nev coined the term "catfish" to refer to someone who creates a false online persona to reel someone into a romantic relationship. The meme spread rapidly. Now Nev takes his investigation to the page, providing readers with an essential roadmap to better connect their digital personas with their true selves. Peppered throughout with Nev's personal stories, this book will explore relationships in the era of social media. Specifically the book will tackle: -what motivates catfish -why people fall for catfish -how one can avoid being deceived -online accountability -Nev's rules for dating -how to connect authentically with people over the internet -how to turn an online relationship into a real life relationship, and much more. Nev will delve deeply into the complexities of dating in a digital age, and continue the cultural dialogue his show has begun about how we interact with each other through social media versus in person-- specifically in relation to millennials, who have never known a world without Facebook. Nev has his finger on the pulse of today's youth. He understands how they interact with each other and what they're looking for. Nev will explore the pressing issue of connectivity versus genuine connection which is plaguing young people's relationships with each other, and he will provide the advice that his fans have been desperately seeking.

"Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks; and when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one.... The people of Fall River, Massachusetts, fear me. Perhaps rightfully so. I remain a suspect in the brutal deaths of my father and his second wife despite the verdict of innocence at my trial. With our inheritance, my sister, Emma, and I have taken up residence in Maplecroft, a mansion near the sea and far from gossip and scrutiny. But it is not far enough from the affliction that possessed my parents. Their characters, their very souls, were consumed from within by something that left malevolent entities in their place. It originates from the ocean's depths, plaguing the populace with tides of nightmares and madness. This evil cannot hide from me. No matter what guise it assumes, I will be waiting for it. With an axe. "--Provided by publisher.

You never give me your money [electronic resource] : the Beatles after the breakup

September 19, 2014
Doggett, Peter.
New York : HarperCollins, 2010.
1 online resource
The world stopped in 1970 when Paul McCartney announced that he was through with the Beatles. His statement not only marked the end of the band's remarkable career, but also seemed to signal the demise of an era of unprecedented optimism in social history. Though the Beatles' breakup was widely viewed as a cultural tragedy, one of the most fascinating phases of their story was just about to begin. Here is the behind-the-scenes story of the personal rivalries and legal feuds that have dominated the Beatles' lives since 1969. Journalist Peter Doggett charts the Shakespearean battles between Lennon and McCartney, the conflict in George Harrison's life between spirituality and fame, and the struggle with alcoholism that threatened to take Richard Starkey's life. This is a compelling human drama and a rich and absorbing story of the Beatles' creative and financial empire, set up to safeguard their interests but destined to control their lives.--From publisher description.
