    In The Sophia Teachings, scientist and scholar Robert Powell uncovers a secret stream of wisdom flowing through the heart of Christianity: the feminine principle known in Greek as "Sophia", or Holy Wisdom herself. This sacred embodiment - named in the Old Testament as the first living being made by God - has comforted and guided seekers of truth in every age and culture, including our own. Who is this spirit of the divine feminine, and what does she mean to us today?

    Since its first publication in 1908, Scouting for Boys has been one of the best-selling books in the English language. Subtitled A Handbook for Instruction in Good Citizenship, the book draws on a miscellany of material, including Baden-Powell's own military experiences, and is credited with giving birth to the scout movement. The audio covers the topics of scoutcraft, tracking and observation, woodcraft, camp life, and first aid in addition to suggesting a range of scout activities and games.

    As Mexico has descended into a feudal narco-state - one where cartels, death squads, the army, and local police all fight over billions of dollars in profits from drug and human trafficking - the border city of Jurez has been hit hardest of all. And yet, more than a million people still live there. They even love their impoverished city, proudly repeating its mantra: "Amor por Jurez." Nothing exemplifies the spirit and hope of Juarenses more than the Indios, the city's beloved but hard-luck soccer team.

    When journalist Robert Andrew Powell finished his first marathon, he cried, cradled in his father’s arms. Long distance runners understand where those tears come from, even if there are others who will never understand what drives someone to run 26.2 consecutive miles in a grueling mental and physical test. Powell’s emotional reaction to completing the race wasn’t just about the run, though. It was also about the joy and relief of coming back up after hitting rock bottom.

    Although its participants are still in grade school, Pop Warner football is serious business in Miami, where local teams routinely advance to the national championships. Games draw thousands of fans; recruiters vie for nascent talent; drug dealers and rap stars bankroll teams; and the stakes are so high that games sometimes end in gunshots. In America's poorest neighborhood, troubled parents dream of NFL stardom for children who long only for a week in Disney World at the Pop Warner Super Bowl.
