Sound Of Gravel by Ruth Wariner
This book was published 4 years ago by Flatiron Books and takes approximately 12.3 hours to read.
A riveting, deeply affecting true story of one girl’s coming-of-age in a polygamist family. RUTH WARINER was the thirty-ninth of her father’s forty-two children. Growing up on a farm in rural Mexico, where authorities turn a blind eye to the practices of her community, Ruth lives in a ramshackle house without indoor plumbing or electricity. At church, preachers teach that God will punish the wicked by destroying the world and that women can only ascend to Heaven by entering into polygamous marriages and giving birth to as many children as possible. After Ruth’s father—the man who had been the founding prophet of the colony—is brutally murdered by his brother in a bid for church power, her mother remarries, becoming the second wife of another faithful congregant. In need of government assistance and supplemental income, Ruth and her siblings are carted back and forth between Mexico and the United States, where Ruth’s mother collects welfare and her stepfather works a variety of odd jobs. Ruth comes to love the time she spends in the States, realizing that perhaps the community into which she was born is not the right one for her. As she begins to doubt her family’s beliefs and question her mother’s choices, she struggles to balance her fierce love for her siblings with her determination to forge a better life for herself. Recounted from the innocent and hopeful perspective of a child, The Sound of Gravel is the remarkable memoir of one girl’s fight for peace and love. This is an intimate, gripping tale of triumph, courage, and resilience.
The Milieu: Welcome to the Transhuman Resistance by Dr. Thomas R. Horn;Carl Teichrib;Paul McGuire;Derek Gilbert;Nita Horn;Wes Faull;Josh Peck;Troy Anderson;Frederick Meekins;Sharon K. Gilbert
This book was published 3 years ago by Defender Publishing and takes approximately 10.0 hours to read.
Utopia or Dystopia? Shangri-La or purgatory? Paradise or perdition? What future truly awaits mankind on the other side of widespread human enhancement? With breakthrough advances in transhumanistic science and technology at an all-time high, it appears that people of all ages, backgrounds, and world cultures are lining up to embrace the alteration and augmentation of the human race. Remaining as the mere Homo sapiens that God designed is no longer satisfactory as we race toward the human-animal chimeric and human-machine hybrid era--a point of no return. For many, these transhuman concepts paint bright and glorious tomorrows filled with higher efficiency, ease, and convenience for our world. For others, the notion of irreversibly changing what it is to be human and the potential spiritual and biological repercussions that holds for the earth's dominant species is, understandably, terrifying. In The Milieu: Welcome to the Transhuman Resistance, you will learn: *The purpose and importance of the resistance group known as the Milieu *Why it's important for the Church to be involved in the discussion about transhumanism *The glaring, spiritual symbolism of the transhuman worldview, and how the Promethean Faith (a.k.a., Religion of Man) is far more a religion than its disciples openly acknowledge *What is driving the 'Christian Transhuman" movement *What methods are currently being used to gradually indoctrinate Church and society with utopian transhuman concepts *Why going from "flawed man" to "enhanced beast" doesn't solve humanity's dilemmas and only serves to reveal deeply-rooted philosophical challenges *The link between artificial intelligence and the image of the Beast from Revelation *Why a pro-transhuman "Milieu" group is forming at the Vatican right now, and what plans they have in mind for humanity's future *How nanotechnology existing at this moment will soon allow for human-robot offspring--and why that might be the very technology that ushers in the Antichrist. *PLUS!--Two chapters from Thomas and Nita Horn's Forbidden Gates discussing the coming Hell Scenario and the spiritual warfare ramifications of merging man with beast or machine.
