Change the Story, Change the Future

by David C. Korten

We humans live by stories, says David Korten, and the stories that now govern our society set us on a path to certain self-destruction. In this profound new book, Korten shares the results of his search for a story that reflects the fullness of human knowledge and understanding and provides a guide to action adequate to the needs of our time. Korten calls our current story Sacred Money and Markets. Money, it tells us, is the measure of all worth and the source of all happiness. Earth is simply a source of raw materials. Inequality and environmental destruction are unfortunate but unavoidable. Although many recognize that this story promotes bad ethics, bad science, and bad economics, it will remain our guiding story until replaced by one that aligns with our deepest understanding of the universe and our relationship to it. To guide our path to a viable human future, Korten offers a Sacred Life and Living Earth story grounded in a cosmology that affirms we are living beings born of a living Earth itself born of a living universe. Our health and well-being depend on an economy that works in partnership with the processes by which Earth's community of life maintains the conditions of its own existence--and ours. Offering a hopeful vision, Korten lays out the transformative impact adopting this story will have on every aspect of human life and society.

Change the World

by Mike Slaughter

Clearly, something is not working. Despite the church's place of prominence in American culture and the ubiquity of the church in every American town, misconceptions about the faith of Jesus Christ run rampant today. Christians are known more for exclusivity than for love, more for pot lucks than for solving world hunger. It's time for churches to get over the cruise-ship mentality of being a program-provider, and reconnect with the true message and mission of Jesus: to bring good news to the poor, release to the captives, and freedom to the oppressed. The church is called to be a mission outpost, living out Christ's ideals in today's world. Slaughter presents seven choices pastors must make as they consider the future of their congregations. Will you focus on building disciples or tallying decisions? Will you multiply your impact or expand your facilities? Will you step out in courage or comply with the status quo? Your answers to these and other questions determine how your church will focus its time, its energy, and its budget to work for real change in a hurting world.

Change the World for Ten Bucks

by We Are What We Do

In 2004, a London-based community organization called We Are What We Do launched with the publication of a little book with a big idea: 50 simple actions to make the world a better place. Since then, Change the World for Ten Bucks has spawned a movement, multiple editions, and sales of over one million copies internationally. At last, here's the U.S. edition. Change the World for Ten Bucks delights and engages at every turn. It includes a postcard to send to someone who inspires you, two pages stuck together (don't throw your gum in the street!), tear-out tabs to make introductions to the neighbors, and dozens of other creative prompts for positive change.

Change They Can't Believe In

by Matt A. Barreto Christopher S. Parker

Are Tea Party supporters merely a group of conservative citizens concerned about government spending? Or are they racists who refuse to accept Barack Obama as their president because he's not white? Change They Can't Believe In offers an alternative argument--that the Tea Party is driven by the reemergence of a reactionary movement in American politics that is fueled by a fear that America has changed for the worse. Providing a range of original evidence and rich portraits of party sympathizers as well as activists, Christopher Parker and Matt Barreto show that what actually pushes Tea Party supporters is not simple ideology or racism, but fear that the country is being stolen from "real Americans"--a belief triggered by Obama's election. From civil liberties and policy issues, to participation in the political process, the perception that America is in danger directly informs how Tea Party supporters think and act. The authors argue that this isn't the first time a segment of American society has perceived the American way of life as under siege. In fact, movements of this kind often appear when some individuals believe that "American" values are under threat by rapid social changes. Drawing connections between the Tea Party and right-wing reactionary movements of the past, including the Know Nothing Party, the Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s, and the John Birch Society, Parker and Barreto develop a framework that transcends the Tea Party to shed light on its current and future consequences. Linking past and present reactionary movements, Change They Can't Believe In rigorously examines the motivations and political implications associated with today's Tea Party.

The Change Your Biology Diet

by Louis J. Aronne David Letterman

A best-selling doctor's life-changing program and diet plan to effectively overcome addictions to sugar, fat, and salt, and achieve permanent weight lossLouis J. Aronne, M.D., an internationally recognized weight-management expert and the director of the Comprehensive Weight Control Center at Weil-Cornell Medical College, has created the Change Your Biology Diet, a proven program that helps people break through weight loss "resistance" to drop excess pounds and keep them off. Dr. Aronne's approach, unlike fad diets, focuses on biological factors that cause weight gain. For example, overeating the wrong kinds of food--namely highly processed, starchy, sweet, fatty food--damages neurons in the brain's appetite center that lead to weight gain. Following his plan can reverse this process. With the support of his extensive knowledge and the latest research, readers learn Twelve Breakthrough Strategies for Successful Weight Management, such as how the order in which food is eaten affects weight loss. He provides two different adaptable diets so that readers can personalize a program that works for them. There are meal plans, delicious recipes for protein shakes, soups, sauces, salad dressings, main courses, side dishes and desserts as well as three high-intensity workouts that require no equipment and can be done in less than ten minutes anywhere. Beyond diet and exercise, Dr. Aronne covers the most recent developments in weight loss medications and bariatric procedures. The Change Your Biology Diet provides readers with everything they need to know to lose weight successfully from one of the pioneers in the field of obesity medicine.
