Every Life Is on Fire

Every Life Is on Fire

For centuries, the scientific question of life's origins has confounded us. But in Every Life Is on Fire, physicist Jeremy England argues that the answer has been under our noses the whole time, deep within the laws of thermodynamics.

A preeminent physicist unveils a field-defining theory of the origins and purpose of life. Why are we alive? Most things in the universe aren't. And everything that is alive traces back to things that, puzzlingly, weren't. For centuries, the scientific question of life's origins has confounded us. But in Every Life Is on Fire, physicist Jeremy England argues that the answer has been under our noses the whole time, deep within the laws of thermodynamics. England explains how, counterintuitively, the very same forces that tend to tear things apart assembled the first living systems. But how life began isn't just a scientific question. We ask it because we want to know what it really means to be alive. So England, an ordained rabbi, uses his theory to examine how, if at all, science helps us find purpose in a vast and mysterious universe. In the tradition of Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning, Every Life Is on Fire is a profound testament to how something can come from nothing.

“In When Your Life Is On Fire Erik Kolbell listens, provokes, and most of all, shares with us the enduring lessons and insights of life and faith as realized by a diverse population of thoughtful people. It’s a town hall of the soul.” -- Tom Brokaw If your life was on fire, what would be the one thing you save? Psychotherapist and former pastor Erik Kolbell asks that question of 13 remarkable and unique individuals, and the answers may surprise you. Provided by celebrities such as Jane Pauley and Alan Alda, artists such as Regina Carter and Tao Porchon Lynch, and ordinary people put into extraordinary situations like Don Lange and Brenda Berkman, these reflections will help all of us consider what it is that we value most in life. His goal, Kolbell says, is not to examine the worth of each of these things. “What matters is that for all of the sham and artifice that can make cynics of us all, there are things, solid things, that compel us onward.”

From the bestselling author of Girl Code, Cara Alwill Leyba delivers Girl on Fire -the long-awaited follow up fans have been waiting for. The self-publishing queen started this conversation four years ago with Girl Code, her ode to women and their power, a book so successful that it has been translated in seven languages and continues to make a major impact on the world. Girl On Fire builds on this concept and shows you how to blaze your own trail immediately. You don't need permission from anyone to live fearlessly and start living your dream. As an early voice in the female-driven movement, Cara continues to be a leader in the space, liberating women to trust their intuition and create their own opportunities. She empowers her readers to stop waiting for their big break and, instead, to publish their own books, start their own podcasts, host their own panels and design their own clothing lines; whatever their desires are. From the author: Who would you be if you stopped following *their* rules? What would you create if you create if you had nothing holding you back? Now that women entrepreneurs are banding together in sisterhood and realizing the importance of collaboration over competition, it's time to take things to the next level. It's time to rise up, together, and challenge the status quo. It's time to question the way things have been done in the past, to write our own rules, and do life and business OUR way. The world needs us, as women, to utilize our voices now more than ever. We must step into our power and we must let nothing hold us back. Business is changing rapidly, and there has never been a better time to choose yourself. Gone are the days of waiting to be chosen by an agent, a record label, a company, or a publisher. Successful entrepreneurs don't wait for their "big break" -they create it. They don't wait to be featured in a magazine, or picked up by a publisher, or given a chance to speak on a stage. They promote themselves on platforms they create, they self-publish their own books, they launch their own podcasts, they create their own events and build their own stages. Now is the time to show up for ourselves. We all have the ability to design a life and career beyond our wildest imaginations without permission, selection, or validation. Girl on Fire will show you how to do it. This book is for every woman who has had a vision that others might not understand. It's for every woman who is sick and tired of playing by the rules. It's for every woman who has known she was meant for more and has waited far too long for someone to give her the permission she thought she needed.

The Chapel is on Fire

In this evocative memoir Michael Levey recreates a between-the-wars English childhood outwardly ordinary and undramatic, but inwardly rich, stirring, sometimes bewildering, and altogether far from typical, not least in its pervasive Catholic ethos.An only child, intensely self-aware, devout, yet questioning, as well as imaginative, drawn to Shakespeare and the theatre, and to all things visual, he grew up in Leigh-on-Sea on the Essex coast. He attended a succession of Catholic schools, before joining the Army at the very end of the War. Notably entertaining is his account of service life, spent partly in Egypt, as is the final chapter, which finds him arriving at the National Gallery in London, to begin a career that would culminate in his being appointed Director.With its precise evocation of a child's relationship with the world around him and with his parents - a couple united in reticent affection and intelligence, but totally opposed in temperament - The Chapel is on Fire will surely become a classic in the literature of childhood.
