There are two kinds of shame. Legitimate shame is a tool in the hands of a forgiving God; we feel it when we recognize our sin and turn to Him. False shame, on the other hand, is a tool in the hands of the enemy; Satan uses it to convince believers that they are not worthy of God's love and acceptance, and to turn them away from fellowship with Him. In From Shame to Beauty, readers will discover how to arm themselves against false shame and live confidently in the knowledge of God's love. This interactive study, ideal for individuals or small groups, guides readers through a process of healing from false shame that has plagued their lives and relationships. From Shame to Beauty features eight topical studies. Topics include "Characteristics of Shame," "Cause of Shame," "Contagion of Shame," "Cure for Shame," and more. Each week's study examines how false shame threatens the lives of believers, digs into Scripture to find out what God's Word has to say about it, offers readers the opportunity to reflect on their own struggle with shame, and suggests practical action steps to help readers apply what they have learned.

Capitalizing on the rich historical record of late antiquity, and employing sophisticated methodologies from social and economic history, this book reinterprets the end of Roman slavery. Kyle Harper challenges traditional interpretations of a transition from antiquity to the Middle Ages, arguing instead that a deep divide runs through 'late antiquity', separating the Roman slave system from its early medieval successors. In the process, he covers the economic, social and institutional dimensions of ancient slavery and presents the most comprehensive analytical treatment of a pre-modern slave system now available. By scouring the late antique record, he has uncovered a wealth of new material, providing fresh insights into the ancient slave system, including slavery's role in agriculture and textile production, its relation to sexual exploitation, and the dynamics of social honor. By demonstrating the vitality of slavery into the later Roman empire, the author shows that Christianity triumphed amidst a genuine slave society.

A sweeping new history of how climate change and disease helped bring down the Roman Empire Here is the monumental retelling of one of the most consequential chapters of human history: the fall of the Roman Empire. The Fate of Rome is the first book to examine the catastrophic role that climate change and infectious diseases played in the collapse of Rome’s power—a story of nature’s triumph over human ambition. Interweaving a grand historical narrative with cutting-edge climate science and genetic discoveries, Kyle Harper traces how the fate of Rome was decided not just by emperors, soldiers, and barbarians but also by volcanic eruptions, solar cycles, climate instability, and devastating viruses and bacteria. He takes readers from Rome’s pinnacle in the second century, when the empire seemed an invincible superpower, to its unraveling by the seventh century, when Rome was politically fragmented and materially depleted. Harper describes how the Romans were resilient in the face of enormous environmental stress, until the besieged empire could no longer withstand the combined challenges of a “little ice age” and recurrent outbreaks of bubonic plague. A poignant reflection on humanity’s intimate relationship with the environment, The Fate of Rome provides a sweeping account of how one of history’s greatest civilizations encountered and endured, yet ultimately succumbed to the cumulative burden of nature’s violence. The example of Rome is a timely reminder that climate change and germ evolution have shaped the world we inhabit—in ways that are surprising and profound.

No More Hiding Shame controls far too many of us. Worthless, inferior, rejected, weak, humiliated, failure...it all adds up to wishing we could get away from others and hide. We know what shame feels like. The way out, however, is harder to find. Time doesn't help, neither does confession, because shame is just as often from what others do to you as it is from what you have done. But the Bible is about shame from start to finish, and, if we are willing, God's beautiful words break through. Look at Jesus through the lens of shame and see how the marginalized and worthless are his favorites and become his people. God cares for the shamed. Through Jesus you are covered, adopted, cleansed, and healed.

Some have asked, “Who are you to write a book that questions the honesty of the Christian religion built upon Jesus and the cross?” I say because I know today that Christianity is a lie! The fake Jesus they created with theology is not real: they are both lies. The real Jesus (Yeshua) taught love for all (including ones enemies). He taught of an experiential, personally knowable Divine connection deep inside. He never taught the concepts of guilt, shame, fear, or the idea of “sin” that angers some god up in the sky. It's time to give up Christianity but keep the real Jesus (Yeshua) and the healing power of the Aramaic language that he spoke. The Greek, Latin, and English are only purposeful distortions of what he taught. The church “fathers” made sure they were needed by humanity as spiritual authorities, so their fabricated Bible became their tool of control. There is no such thing as a “spiritual authority.” Dogma holds people in ignorance, fear, and dependence. The proof of this is seen in the fact that very soon after the Roman Catholic Church was established at the Council of Nicaea in 325CE (1,700 years ago) they began to burn tens of thousands of people at the stake. Why? Because the people didn't accept their newly made-up dogma. The newly formed church demanded that their fabrications were suddenly “the only truth,” and everyone must conform or else. Christianity would never have survived without their violent actions of the next twelve centuries. Today their violence is seen in their actions against the LGBT community, women, and other races. They also decided what was to be included in a new book that they put together and then labeled it God's Word or The Holy Bible to make it sound authentic. It is neither! Their Bible even says it's okay to lie in order to promote the kingdom of heaven. It says that unicorns are real, and that it is permissible to kidnap and rape virgins—as well as many other very strange ideas. But the church demands that people believe in their “kingdom”—not the one Jesus taught was already within each human being. I write to expose the lies of fake Christianity and reveal the Aramaic Jesus and his words that the church has never known. HIs words have been lost to humanity for over 1,900 years. To know what he said and how to experience it renders the church as nothing but a useless appendage with absolutely zero authority of any kind. I've studied the Aramaic now for fifteen years and counting. I share this everywhere I go. Your turn to heal awaits your discovery of the real Jesus too. Your most Beautiful Self awaits your choice to be who you really are, not what others have told you that you are.

He spent his growing-up years living for himself—recklessly rebelling against his evangelist father’s faith, numb to God and to the letters his father wrote him, immersed in the dark side of life. Until one intense night in the Jamaican Blue Mountains that allowed him to see himself in the mirror of grace, changing everything. The Secret Life of a Fool is Andrew Palau’s unforgettable journey of running from God—and the crushing, freeing experience of coming back to Him. It is a story of getting high, burning up cars, being stranded in Europe, surviving a near-fatal plane crash, and utter despair overcome by simple grace and a father’s love, expressed in excerpted letters throughout this book.

Shame is everywhere. Whether it's related to relationships, body image, work difficulties, or a secret sin, we all experience shame at some point in our lives. While shame can manifest itself in different ways—fear, regret, and anger—it ultimately points us to our most fundamental need as human beings: redemption. Shame never disappears in solitude, and Heather Davis Nelson invites us to not only be healed of our own shame but also be a part of healing for others. She shines the life-giving light of the gospel on the things that leave us feeling worthless and rejected, giving us courage us to walk out of shame’s shadows and offering hope for our bondage to brokenness. Through the gospel, we discover the only real and lasting antidote to shame: exchanging our shame for the righteousness of Christ alongside others on this same journey.
