In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

In Jesus on Trial, New York Times bestselling author David Limbaugh applies his lifetime of legal experience to a unique new undertaking: making a case for the gospels as hard evidence of the life and work of Jesus Christ. Limbaugh, a practicing attorney and former professor of law, approaches the canonical gospels with the same level of scrutiny he would apply to any legal document and asks all the necessary questions about the story of Jesus....

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who wants to hear a common sense approach to starting with standup comedy.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Standup Comedy?

  • Tactics

  • A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions

  • Narrated by: Tom Parks

In a world increasingly indifferent to Christian truth, followers of Christ need to be equipped to communicate with those who do not speak their language or accept their source of authority. Gregory Koukl demonstrates how to get in the driver’s seat, keeping any conversation moving with thoughtful, artful diplomacy. You’ll learn how to maneuver comfortably and graciously through the minefields, stop challengers in their tracks, turn the tables and—most importantly—get people thinking about Jesus.

What did you learn from Switch on Your Brain that you would use in your daily life?

Always be aware of what you allow to enter your mind. If you have fears or negative thoughts, you can work on "destroying" those thoughts and work on creating better thoughts. I personally love the Bible verses Caroline found, that matched her findings!
I really enjoyed the book and appreciate her sharing her knowledge and experiences.
