Eat, Fast, Feast
Body While Feeding Your Soul
Jay W. Richards
The New York Times bestselling author and
senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, Jay W.
Richards, blends science and religion in this
thoughtful guide that teaches modern believers how
to use the leading wellness trend today—intermittent
fasting—as a means of spiritual awakening, adopting
the traditions our Christians ancestors practiced
for centuries into daily life. Richards provides a
40-day plan which combines a long-term “nutritional
ketosis” with spiritual disciplines. The plan can be
used any time of the year or be adapted to a
penitential season on the Christian calendar, such
as Advent or Lent.

The Excruciating history of dentisty
Tales & Oral Oddities from Babylon to Braces
For those on both sides of the dreaded dentist's
chair, James Wynbrandt has written a witty,
colorful, and richly informative history of the art
and science of dentistry. To all of those dental
patients whose whine rises in tandem with that of
the drill, take note: You would do well to stifle
your terror and instead offer thanks to Apollonia,
the patron saint of toothache sufferers, that you
face only fleeting discomfort rather than the
disfiguring distress, or slow agonizing death oft
meted out by dental-care providers of the past. The
transition from yesterday's ignorance,
misapprehension, and superstition to the enlightened
and nerve-deadened protocols of today has been a
long, slow, and very painful process.
