Small-town banker Adam Bender tackles a robber and loses. But that's not what shakes the foundations of his well-managed life. He awakens in the hospital to the vision of an angel. But that's not what casts doubt on his reasonable judgment. Turns out the angel is only a beautiful doctor—someone Adam wants to get to know better. The bank robber is on the loose and out to get Adam. News spreads in the gossipy little town of Adam's misfortune, his love interest, and his...atheism? He'd thought he could keep that a secret. But Adam Bender can handle it. Or, can he? What happens one night on a mountain road leaves him questioning his worldview. And his sanity. And soon the whole town is waiting to find out if what Adam saw will alter his unbelief.

Even in this tiny fragment of philosophy I managed to miss two essential points. "Know thyself," and "The unexamined life is not worth living," were Socrates' maxims. I never bothered to ask myself "Who am I?" A brilliant University of California-Berkeley philosophy student, Eloy Wise suffers from multiple personality disorder. Each of his three personalities is capable of taking him into different realms of experience and self-exploration, and it is not long before his life changes dramatically. Eloy is a promising and attractive young man who likes the company of older men from various cultures. Romantic and idealistic Harmony is a bright university student determined to become the lover of his controversial and charismatic philosophy professor. And José Luis, the third personality sharing this one body, is a reckless young Chicano ready for sexual adventures, seeking his paternal heritage in Mexico. From a Northern California college campus to the gay bars of Mexico and San Francisco, Three Faces in the Mirror reveals one young man's journey to find his true self.

An updated edition showcasing the social health of the least religious nations in the world Religious conservatives around the world often claim that a society without a strong foundation of faith would necessarily be an immoral one, bereft of ethics, values, and meaning. Indeed, the Christian Right in the United States has argued that a society without God would be hell on earth. In Society without God, Second Edition sociologist Phil Zuckerman challenges these claims. Drawing on fieldwork and interviews with more than 150 citizens of Denmark and Sweden, among the least religious countries in the world, he shows that, far from being inhumane, crime-infested, and dysfunctional, highly secular societies are healthier, safer, greener, less violent, and more democratic and egalitarian than highly religious ones. Society without God provides a rich portrait of life in a secular society, exploring how a culture without faith copes with death, grapples with the meaning of life, and remains content through everyday ups and downs. This updated edition incorporates new data from recent studies, updated statistics, and a revised Introduction, as well as framing around the now more highly developed field of secular studies. It addresses the dramatic surge of irreligion in the United States and the rise of the “nones,” and adds data on societal health in specific US states, along with fascinating context regarding which are the most religious and which the most secular.

"Scott's play is loosely based on the life of his father. Cantankerous and isolated, an old man has retreated to his bedroom fortress, a bombsite of newspapers, aircraft parts and candlewick bedspreads. Amid the debris, he conjures up the characters of his past. From Irish boyhood to World War II airman to New Zealand immigrant, Danny Moffat retraces a life of profane exploits and irreverent adventures."--Jacket.

"The Atheist's Bible" is a collection of fifteen short stories and novellas by Shalom Camenietzki, a Toronto-based psychologist and writer of fictions. Nine of the fifteen stories that make up the collection were previously published in Canadian literary magazines. Published in 2006, the collection has been reviewed by five literary magazines. The collection's themes are varied, from an adult psychologist reminiscing about his adored, black Brazilian nanny, to an Israeli recruit senselessly dying because of friendly fire. One short story and one novella deal explicitly with the life of aging, experienced psychologists, who are depicted in realistic, non-flattering terms, leaving no room for idealization and lionizing of those professionals. The collection revolves on Jewish characters, with no non-Jews as narrators or main figures.

Marjorie Morningstar is a love story. It presents one of the greatest characters in modern fiction: Marjorie, the pretty seventeen-year-old who left the respectability of New York's Central Park West to join the theater, live in the teeming streets of Greenwich Village, and seek love in the arms of a brilliant, enigmatic writer. In this memorable novel, Herman Wouk, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, has created a story as universal, as sensitive, and as unmistakably authentic as any ever told.
