Crazy like us : the globalization of the american psyche by Ethan Watters( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is well known that American culture is a dominant force at home and abroad; our exportation of everything from movies to junk food is a well-documented phenomenon. But is it possible that America's most troubling impact on the globalizing world has yet to be accounted for' In Crazy Like Us, Ethan Watters reveals that the most devastating consequence of the spread of American culture has not been our golden arches or our bomb craters but our bulldozing of the human psyche itself: We are in the process of homogenizing the way the world goes mad. America has been the world leader in generating new mental health treatments and modern theories of the human psyche. We export our psychopharmaceuticals packaged with the certainty that our biomedical knowledge will relieve the suffering and stigma of mental illness. We categorize disorders, thereby defining mental illness and health, and then parade these seemingly scientific certainties in front of the world. The blowback from these efforts is just now coming to light: It turns out that we have not only been changing the way the world talks about and treats mental illness-we have been changing the mental illnesses themselves
They like Jesus but not the church : insights from emerging generations by Dan Kimball( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many people today, especially among emerging generations, don't resonate with the church and organized Christianity. Some are leaving the church and others were never part of the church in the first place. Sometimes it's because of misperceptions about the church. Yet often they are still spiritually open and fascinated with Jesus. This is a ministry resource book exploring six of the most common objects and misunderstandings emerging generations have about the church and Christianity. The objections come from conversations and interviews the church has had with unchurched twenty and thirty-somethings at coffee houses. Each chapter raises the objection using a conversational approach, provides the biblical answers to that objection, gives examples of how churches are addressing this objection, and concludes with follow-through projection suggestions, discussion questions, and resource listings
Fatherless generation : redeeming the story by John Sowers( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of fatherlessness is being written into the heart of this generation. But fatherlessness is more than a personal tragedy. It is a growing epidemic affecting more than the single life of an individual. Fatherless youth are the driving force behind our society's biggest problems such as: gangs, teenage pregnancy, drug abuse and suicide. And all too often, the fatherless are either marginalized or ignored. How should we respond? How do we meaningfully engage the growing story of fatherlessness? How can the faith community enter into and begin rewriting this tragic story? Intentional, intergenerational mentoring is the secret and foundational ingredient behind this new story of hope
101 stumbles in the march of history what if the great mistakes in war, government, industry, and economics were not made? by Bill Fawcett( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Did I do that'! When asked to name a successor, Alexander the Great declared that his empire should go "to the strongest." But would rival factions have descended into war if he'd been a little more specific' What if the Vienna School of Art took a chance on a hopeful young student named Adolf Hitler' If Pope Clement VII granted King Henry VIII an annulment, England would likely still be Catholic today-and so would America. Bill Fawcett, author of 100 Mistakes That Changed History, offers a compendium of 101 all-new mammoth mistakes-from the ill-fated rule of Emperor Darius III to the equally ill-fated search for WMDs in Iraq-that will, unfortunately, never be forgotten by history

The Yucks Two Years in Tampa With the Losingest Team in NFL History by Jason Vuic( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Long before their first Super Bowl victory in 2003, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did something no NFL team had ever done before and that none will ever likely do again: They lost twenty-six games in a row. It started in 1976, in their first season as an expansion team, and it lasted until the penultimate game of the 1977 season, when they defeated Archie Manning and the New Orleans Saints on the road. It was the beginning of a new streak for a team that had come to be called "The Yucks." They won their final game at home, and the fans tore down the goalposts. This was no ordinary streak. It was an existential curse that unfolded week after week, with Johnny Carson leading the charge on The Tonight Show. Along with their ridiculous mascot and uniforms, the Yucks were a national punch line and personnel purgatory. Owned by the miserly and bulbous-nosed Hugh Culverhouse, the team was the end of the line for Heisman Trophy winner Steve Spurrier, and a banishment for former Cowboy defensive end Pat Toomay after he wrote a tell-all book about his time on "America's Team." Jason Vuic's The Yucks is an unforgettable and hilarious account of athletic futility and despair
