The hot topics in information technology right now are Linux and Open Source. But what does Open Source offer those, who may not see their computer as a matter of life and death?

Finally, a book about open marriage that grapples with the problems surrounding monogamy and fidelity in an honest, heartfelt, and non-fringe manner. Jenny Block is your average girl next door, a suburban wife and mother for whom married life never felt quite right. While many books on this topic presuppose that the reader is ready to embrace an ?alternative lifestyle, Block operates from the assumption that most couples who are curious about or engaged in open marriages are in fact more like her ? normal people who question whether monogamy is right for them; good people who love their spous

First published in 1986 and in print--and immensely popular--ever since, Open Mind, Open Heart, by the Trappist Monk Thomas Keating, remains one of the best introductions to a specifically Christian form of meditation. Father Keating gives the reader an overview of what contemplative prayer both is and isn’t; he discusses the history of contemplative prayer in the Christian tradition and then explores step by step the process of Centering Prayer, briefly exploring its origins in the ancient church and then demonstrating its use as "a sign of one’s intention" to surrender to God.
