The articles in Naked Truths demonstrate the application of feminist theory to a diverse repertory of classical art: they offer topical and controversial readings on the material culture of the ancient Mediterranean. This volume presents a timely, provocative and beautifully illustrated re-evaluation of how the issues of gender, identity and sexuality reveal 'naked truths' about fundamental human values and social realities, through the compelling symbolism of the body.

The very idea of truth as a substantial and meaningful concept has been under attack recently from advocates of New Age and postmodern theories. In this book Englebretsen defends the notions of truth and objectivity as key to the scientific view of the natural world and presents an original defence of the 'commonsense' correspondence theory of truth. Englebretsen's approach overcomes the traditional difficulties of correspondence theories of truth with providing adequate and convincing accounts of truth-bearers, truth-makers and the correspondence relation between them by taking truth-bearers to be propositions and facts as constitutive properties of the world. This accessibly written book surveys all of the major competing theories of truth (coherence, pragmatic, redundancy, semantic, deflationary, disquotational, minimalist) before formulating the new defence of the correspondence theory and then exploring the consequences of the theory for issues in epistemology and ontology. The book concludes by showing how the idea of 'propositional depth' can be used to dissolve the Liar paradoxes.

LUST, MONEY, YOU. This is the beginning of what brought Naz and Jaizell together; a friendship so solid, no one can break it. A love so deep, being without the other is never an option. This love is also what tears them apart. Holding back on what they know is true love, Naz and Jaizell fill the void of missing one another with other people, while simultaneously trying not to come on too strong to each other. This brings them unknown enemies from the past who cannot wait to even the score, and frenemies from the present who only want what they can’t have. Can Naz and Jaizell weather the storm? Will Naz finally be with her true love?

Naked Truths is the true story of a New Jersey grandmother who was arrested for taking innocent nude photos of her two young granddaughters. Through the telling of her personal experiences in the clutches of the criminal justice system and child protective services, she raises serious questions about crucial issues that concern all of us: issues of privacy and censorship; of freedom of expression and the erosion of our First Amendment rights; of overzealous and wrongful prosecutions; and of our frenetic attempt to protect children in a very threatening world, often sacrificing the very children and families they claim to protect. Naked Truths is about a modern day witch hunt where innocent people are caught in a trap meant to catch actual pornographers and pedophiles; where film processors are vigilantes for the state and where the justice system has free rein to create havoc with no accountability. Naked Truths will tell you well-kept secrets about: * Parental Rights You Thought You Had, * Illusions of Privacy That We Live With, * What Your Own Lawyer Doesn't Want You To Know, * Dangers Lurking in Child Protective Services, and much more.... .

Everyone knows which books people buy; they can just look at the best-seller lists. But who knows which books people steal? Who, for that matter, knows that authors ruin the book market by writing too much? Or why book critics are not critical? Or why librarians need to throw out more books? Who, indeed, knows the answer to that all-important question in our democracy: should presidents and presidential candidates write books? (The answer is no.) In this irreverent analysis of the book industry, John Maxwell Hamilton -- a longtime journalist and public radio commentator -- answers these questions and many more, proving that the best way to study books is not to take them too seriously. He provides a rich history of the book -- from the days when monks laboriously hand-copied texts to the tidal wave of Titanic tie-ins -- and gives a succinct overview of the state of the industry today, including writing, marketing, promoting, reviewing, ghostwriting, and collecting. Throughout, Hamilton peppers his prose with spicy tidbits of information that will fascinate bibliophiles everywhere. For instance, did you know that Walt Whitman was fired from a government job because his boss found Leaves of Grass, and its author, immoral? Or that the most stolen book in the United States is the Bible, followed by The Joy of Sex? How about that Dan Quayle's 1989 Christmas card read, "May our nation continue to be a beakon of hope to the world"? Or that Casanova was an ardent lover of books as well as women? Hamilton offers an inside look at the history and business of book reviewing, explaining why, more often than not, reviewers resemble "counselors at a self-esteem camp" and examining the enormous impact of the "Oprah effect" on the market. As the self-appointed Emily Post of the book world, he advises publishers, authors, and readers on proper etiquette for everything from book parties ("Feel free to build a party around a theme in a book, no matter how tacky") and jacket photos ("You should not show off your new baby unless [your] book [is] about raising kids"), to book signings ("Just because an author has given you an autograph does not mean they want to become your pen pal") and promotion by friends and relatives ("They should carry the book at all times on public transportation with the cover showing"). Both edifying and enjoyable, Casanova Was a Book Lover fills a Grand Canyon--sized void in the literature on literature. It is indispensable for book enthusiasts who want to know the naked truth about reading, writing, and publishing.

Product Description Chapter 1: In the Image of God In the context of Genesis, procreation and dominion are quintessential to the reality of being made in the image of God, as together they distinguish us from the animals who also were given the imperative to “be fruitful and multiply.” Chapter 2: She Shall be Called Woman! Examines the creation of woman, and its immediate effects on the man. Key words and phrases from the creation narrative are examined for what they reveal about God’s radical viewpoint on human sexuality. Chapter 3: The Joy of SECKS (Sensually Enhancing Christian Knowledge of Sexuality) Examines male and female sexual response, with male and female physiology forming a basis for insight. The concept of “knowing” necessitates foreplay, and calls for a redefining of the concept of foreplay. Our sexuality is greater than the sum of our sexual parts. Chapter 4: Religion and Sexuality Historical perspective on the effect Christianity has had on demonizing sexuality, and the resultant collective sexual repression it has caused. The effects of centuries of viewing sex as sinful and dirty has left Christianity in no position to speak with authority and credibility on sexual issues in a way that is relevant to a sexually enlightened contemporary audience. Chapter 5: A Modern History of Sexuality A modern history of sexuality, especially the progress made by pioneers in sexual research in the 20th century. The chapter also examines the quantifiable health and wellness benefits of sex, and how life actually imitates art (not the other way around) in the case of human sexuality. Chapter 6: The Nature of the Struggle Makes the case that sex is spiritual—it impacts and effects every aspect of our being. The chapter then looks at the modern phenomenon of Tantric Sex as an attempt by New Age practitioners to recapture that lost sense of spiritual connectedness between lovers. The content then moves toward examining the real reason for the struggle that most people, especially young people today, have in trying to maintain sexual purity. Modern practices leading to marriage predispose young people to failure in fighting the struggle. Chapter 7: Where Does Adultery Stop and Polygamy Begin? Defines what marriage is, in an actual biblical, not theological sense. As such, the chapter comprises a comparative analysis of the difference between fornication and adultery; then formulates the provocative question, “Where does adultery stop, and polygamy begin?” All this is done within the framework of answering the question, “What is marriage?” Chapter 8: Monogamy, and the Curse of Being Male Examines the question, “Is monogamy natural, or even advisable?” The examination is conducted primarily through a male-focused lens. Alternatives to monogamy are also examined for their relative merits, or lack thereof. In the end, an honest and candid assessment is given. Chapter 9: Who’s the Boss? Examines the relational dynamics between men and women as portrayed in Gen 3:16 in the ongoing struggle for control, viz., who is in charge in the relationship? It goes on to point out a second dynamic that is revealed in the text—one that resides in the nature of all women, a characteristic of which all women need to beware, lest they fall victim to it. In other words, it answers the question definitively, “Why do women often like bad boys?” Ends with a discussion on domestic violence. Chapter 10: Oh to be Single and Christian! Singleness and the Christian. Traces a history of social views toward being unmarried, then shifts to modern developments that helped redefine being single as an acceptable and desirable, even preferable lifestyle to being married. The chapter outlines three types of single people. It draws on advice from the Apostle Paul for a purpose for the single life. Calls for an honest assessment of singleness and the desire for companionship. The chapter closes with a description of a fourth type of single person, and the difficulties that face those in our churches, especially women, who desire companionship yet face a dearth of eligible men in the church. Chapter 11: Older Women, Younger Men Examines “Cougarism” and compares modern social issues to the history of relationships, and then makes the case that there are times, within limits and common sense practice, that women can marry younger men. Chapter 12: Why Couples Get Divorced – The Real Reason A surprising answer as to the real reason why couples get divorced. The wisdom of the ancients is brought to bear upon our modern practices and shows the modern practices not to be as enlightened as we first thought. Examines emerging modern trends in living arrangements that may ease the burden on couples and families. It is then shown that the emerging modern trends which seem like such radical departures from established norms, are actually very much rooted in what people in ancient times and in early biblical culture, had practiced. The information gives people permission to make decisions about family life that work best for them in their own unique circumstances, regardless of what others might say or think. Issues and Answers: Deals with some of the individual subjects raised in earlier chapters and adds some other sexual hot topics. Also gives answers to many popular questions that a Christian might have about sex-related issues.
