If you were inspired by Wild and Eat, Pray, Love, you’ll love this extraordinary true story of a woman taking the greatest risk of her life in order to heal from the unthinkable. After escaping an abusive marriage, Cara Brookins had four children to provide for and no one to turn to but herself. In desperate need of a home but without the means to buy one, she did something incredible. Equipped only with YouTube instructional videos, a small bank loan and a mile-wide stubborn streak, Cara built her own house from the foundation up with a work crew made up of her four children. It would be the hardest thing she had ever done. With no experience nailing together anything bigger than a bookshelf, she and her kids poured concrete, framed the walls and laid bricks for their two story, five bedroom house. She had convinced herself that if they could build a house, they could rebuild their broken family. This must-read memoir traces one family’s rise from battered victims to stronger, better versions of themselves, all through one extraordinary do-it-yourself project.

This is a "how-to" book on the construction of a small, simple and sustainable house. The book uses detailed illustrations, captioned text, short videos, and 3D models to walk the reader through eight distinct phases of construction. Readers are also encouraged to build 3D construction models for their own projects. Each chapter ends with a "Hands-On" section with how-to tutorials that include navigating through a design model, excavating a model base, assembling a foundation wall, fabricating and erecting framing members, extruding 3D objects from 2D details, and running pipes and wires through the walls and ceiling.

Cultural critics say that "science is politics by other means," arguing that the results of scientific inquiry are profoundly shaped by the ideological agendas of powerful elites. They base their claims on historical case studies purporting to show the systematic intrusion of sexist, racist, capitalist, colonialist, and/or professional interests into the very content of science. In this hard-hitting collection of essays, contributors offer crisp and detailed critiques of case studies offered by the cultural critics as evidence that scientific results tell us more about social context than they do about the natural world. Pulling no punches, they identify numerous crude factual blunders (e.g. that Newton never performed any experiments) and egregious errors of omission, such as the attempt to explain the slow development of fluid dynamics solely in terms of gender bias. Where there are positive aspects of a flawed account, or something to be learned from it, they do not hesitate to say so. Their target is shoddy scholarship. Comprising new essays by distinguished scholars of history, philosophy, and science, this book raises a lively debate to a new level of seriousness.

Hope into Action, a charity founded by Ed Walker has a vision – of the church at the forefront of the fight against homelessness. Since 2010 it has worked in partnership with churches to supply homes, support, friendship and love for the homeless and marginalized, earning the Guardian’s Public Service Award in 2017 and an award from the Centre for Social Justice. Here, Ed tells his story of faith and struggle as he and his wife Rachel stepped out in faith, developed a new theology of sharing and saw both tragic and wonderful outcomes. Visionary, inspiring and touching, Ed’s experiences show how we can meet and grow in Christ as we interact with those in the shadows and those hidden in darkness.
