In Keys for Living Single, Dr. Munroe describes how singleness—as we define it—is a myth. He explains the true nature of singleness and how it enables us to become everything God designed us to be: “If a state of singleness means ‘to be unique and whole,’ then to be totally single should be every Christian’s number one goal.” Develop a wholeness and completeness that will define and guide you for the rest of your life as you fulfill your singular purpose in the world—single or married.
In Keys for Prayer, Dr. Munroe reveals God’s purposes for prayer while providing powerful principles for putting it into practice. When you understand the principles of prayer, you can communicate with God with effectiveness, grace, and confidence. You can know that He hears and answers your requests. Start applying these keys for prayer today and live in your calling as God’s fellow worker in fulfilling His purposes on earth.
In Keys for Leadership, Dr. Munroe reveals that the one thing all leaders have in common is not education, knowledge, or networking. It is a spirit. When you think according to the spirit of leadership, you begin the process of becoming a leader. Every human being has the capacity for leadership, but most lack the understanding or will to develop it. Learn the keys for leadership, capture the spirit of leadership, and you will discover the leader within you.
American society is no longer defined by marriage. Today, an increasing majority of American households are headed by single men and women. Even those Americans who do marry spend at least half of their adult lives alone. Living on one's own presents unique challenges depending on one's age, health, and circumstances. So the script for successful single living calls for different strategies for young adults, the recently divorced, single parents, and those widowed or experiencing single life in later adulthood. Here, Dr. Yount considers each group's special needs and challenges and offers a guide for leading a productive, rewarding, and fulfilling single life. Single living, he contends, requires some core abilities: overcoming loneliness, reaching out to others, developing faith in oneself and self-respect, keeping up with daily activities, and maintaining good health, security, and a sense of humor. This book helps readers learn to celebrate their single status and to find contentment and peace while living on their own. These days, if you are unmarried and pining for romance, you are in a small minority. Until recently, most Americans considered single life to be a temporary situation during which one would simply wait for a soul mate to come along. Those who remained unwed were pitied as bachelors and spinsters. No longer! These days, most single men and women find autonomy in negotiating their way through life by relying on their own resources, with marriage remaining one option, but not an imperative. Even those who do marry are getting married later, and those who divorce or are widowed often choose to stay single. With this trend toward singlehood increasing, affirming the single life and making a success of it becomes all the more important. Yount offers advice for creating a gratifying and happy single life at any stage, and provides insight into those things that can contribute to a satisfying single lifestyle. He pinpoints areas that often get ignored by singles, and proposes solutions to some of the pitfalls that can lead to loneliness or unhappiness. Leading a fulfilling single life is not only possible, it can in fact be rewarding in itself, and Yount shows readers how to lead productive and creative lives as modern singles.

This book has been written to highlight the medical dimensions of biblical injunctions. It explains in simple language the health benefits obtainable from living in accordance with the biblical precepts. The Bible encourages health-enhancing habits, such as eating good diets, exercising rightly, and sleeping adequately. In addition, this book also discusses the effects of anger, music, laughter, church attendance, tattoo, marriage, forgiveness, worry/stress, and personal hygiene on human health. The essence is to draw the readers' attention to the need to wake up to their responsibilities if they are to enjoy good health, which the Bible promises. Although written with Christians in mind, it is equally beneficial to non-Christians since the concern and desire for good health cut across all religious divides. This book will provide us valuable information and knowledge . . . and will prove to be a handy resource that will keep you away from 'suffering many things of many physicians.' —Rev. Dr. B. U. Okafor

As the church marks the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council, too few Catholics have an adequate grasp of what the council contributed to the life of the church. The problem is understandable. The Second Vatican Council produced, by far, more document pages than any other council. Consequently, any attempt to master its core teachings can be daunting. There is a danger of missing the forest for the trees. With this in mind, Keys to the Council identifies twenty key conciliar passages, central texts that help us appreciate the Vision of the council fathers. Each chapter places the given passage in its larger historical context, explores its fundamental meaning and significance, and finally considers its larger significance for the life of the church today. Chapters include exploration of Sacrosanctum Concilium's demand for full, conscious, and active participation in the liturgy; Lumen Gentium's eucharistic ecclesiology; Gaudium et Spes's vision of marriage as an intimate partnership of life and love; Nostra Aetate's approach to non-Christian religions; and more.
