Holding Up the Universe Book Description:

From the author of the New York Times bestseller All the Bright Places comes a heart-wrenching story about what it means to see someone - and love someone - for who they truly are. Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout. I know the part I want to play here at MVB High. I want to be the girl who can do anything. Once dubbed 'America's Fattest Teen', she is only seen for her weight. Not the girl underneath. Since her mum's death she's been picking up the pieces in private, alone with her heartbroken father. But now, Libby is ready. She's ready for high school, for new friends, for love and for every possibility life has to offer. Everyone thinks they know Jack Masselin too. Be charming. Be hilarious. Don't get too close to anyone. Yes, he's got swagger, but he's also mastered the art of fitting in. What no one knows is that Jack has a secret: he can't recognize faces. Even his own brothers are strangers to him. He's the guy who can re-engineer and rebuild anything, but he can't understand what's going on with the inner workings of his own brain. When Jack and Libby meet, they discover that the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel. Praise for All the Bright Places: 'If you're looking for the next The Fault in Our Stars - this is it' Guardian '[A] heartbreaking love story about two funny, fragile, and wildly damaged high school kids' Entertainment Weekly 'A do-not-miss for fans of Eleanor & Park and The Fault in Our Stars, and basically anyone who can breathe' Justine Magazine 'At the heart - a big one - of All the Bright Places lies a charming love story about this unlikely and endearing pair of broken teenagers' The New York Times Book Review

Moral Gravity Book Description:

Thinking about climate change can create a paralysing sense of hopelessness. But what about the idea of a planetary exodus? Are high-tech solutions like colonizing other planets just another distraction from taking real action? This radical book unsettles how we think about taking responsibility for environmental catastrophe. Going beyond both hopelessness and false hope in his development of a 'sociology of the very worst', David W. Hill debunks the idea of a society that centres around human beings and calls for us to take responsibility for sustaining a coexistence of animals, plants and minerals bound by one planet. We would then find the centre of our moral gravity here together on earth.

The Hidden Geometry of Life The Science and Spirituality of Nature Book Description:

Encompassing nature, science, art, architecture, and spirituality, and illustrated with over 700 photographs and line drawings, The Hidden Geometry of Life illuminates the secret underpinnings of existence. In her trademark easy-to-understand style, mathematician Karen French shows how sacred geometry permeates every level of being, manifesting itself in simple shapes and numbers, music and sounds, light and color, even in the mysteries of creation itself. But these geometrical archetypes are more than the building blocks of reality: they are gateways to profound new levels of awareness.

Gateway to the Heavens How Geometric Shapes Patterns and Symbols Form Our Reality Book Description:

Simple geometric shapes and symbols combine to make the universal, powerful and sacred model Karen French calls the Gateway to the Heavens. In this book, French explains the meaning and purpose of these shapes, how they mould our reality and perception of it, and how they have a direct bearing on what you are and why you are here. These shapes and symbols contain messages that have been consistently represented in religion, philosophy, mythology, mysticism, the arts and sciences. Their messages are built into our genetic make-up and we recognise them instinctively. The book is divided up into three parts. Part 1 covers the properties of the basic geometric shapes and numbers. Part 2 describes how these in turn form layers of construction, creating principals that are fundamental to the purpose of the universe. The spiral sustains reality, the cross highlighting the central point of existence and the Heart where we weigh up our choices. Part 3 describes how we can use these principles to create positive change in our lives by helping us to expand our awareness of reality.

Christianity and Extraterrestrials Book Description:

Does ETI existence spell the death of Christianity? The increasingly popular answer is "yes". Marie George argues, to the contrary, that Christian belief is compatible with ETI existence, by examining Roman Catholic teaching and Scripture. She then makes a case that while Christian belief does not exclude ETI existence, it does render it improbable. George goes on to expose the faulty reasoning behind the common opinion that science indicates that the universe surely contains other intelligent life forms. She closes with speculations on what the Catholic Church might eventually say about ETIs. Central to her analysis is the cosmic role of Christ."I appreciate arguments like those in Christianity and Extraterrestrials?, laid out carefully and investigated thoroughly. If more writers proceeded with Dr. George's care and courtesy, there would be new hope for peace in the world."John L. Barger, Ph.D. Publisher, Sophia Institute Press"Although some of Dr. George's claims are controversial, she is clearly an author seeking the truth and open to opposing arguments. Moreover, she has sought out the best sources and used them wisely-in short, an admirable scholarly presentation."Michael J. Crowe Cavanaugh Professor Emeritus, University of Notre Dame and author of The Extraterrestrial Life Debate, 1750-1900
