Legacy of Darkness and Light
by Michael Gellert
What do Niccolo Machiavelli, Abraham Lincoln, Martha Stewart, Vladimir Putin, and Mel Gibson have in common? In their own ways, they each resemble the stormy God of the Hebrew Bible, Yahweh—known as the Father in the New Testament and Allah in the Qur’an. Whether or not we believe in his existence, we are all susceptible to the Yahweh complex, a distinct God complex modeled upon his attitudes, emotional style, and behaviors. Like the deity itself, the complex can be positive or dark, influencing our relationships, our social environment and culture, our public affairs and international relations, our treatment of the earth, and, of course, our religions. Legacy of Darkness and Light explores both sides of this complex. Drawing upon the experiences of famous individuals as well as the larger factors that shape history, Legacy aims to help us recognize and understand our own Yahweh complex in order to deal with it in a healthy, conscious, and self-empowered way.

The Journey of an Old White Dude in the Age of Black Lives Matter: A Primer
by John R. Gerdy

In The Journey of an Old White Dude in the Age of Black Lives Matter: A Primer, John Gerdy educates and challenges us to move a bit further along that continuum. While POC should occupy the majority of space to articulate these issues, there is only so much Black people can tell White people about them. To that end, Gerdy writes specifically as one old White dude directly to other White folks, with a profound sense of respect and humility. If you are considering embarking on a similar journey of understanding and action, Gerdy provides a story and path that will resonate. This is a book of real-life experiences, research conducted, lessons learned, issues analyzed, and resources provided, ending with an inspirational call to action.

An Obesity of Grief
by Lynn Haraldson
Nineteen years old with an eleven-day old baby, Lynn Haraldson’s world shattered when her husband, Bruce, was killed in a tractor-train collision. Because she was young, people assumed she’d “get over it,” and she clung to the myth that one day, time would heal her pain. But unacknowledged trauma blindly informed many of her decisions, including an unplanned pregnancy and remaining in an abusive relationship. After two failed marriages, and gaining and losing more than one-hundred pounds—twice—a health scare forced her to confront her grief. Through therapy and meditation, Lynn learned to grieve Bruce, and she explored the question that had plagued her for years: How did he not hear a train? In an unexpected encounter with one, she found the answer. Those who grieve seek assurance that how they respond and cope (or don’t respond and cope) with grief rings true for others as well. An Obesity of Grief challenges the false narrative that grief has a timeline, and explores common reactions to grief, offering hope that grief and love can live side by side
