    This is a 3-book bundle, which addresses various subtopics, including but not limited to these: 
      
      
    Book 1: What is Asperger’s Syndrome? 
      
    How is it different from autism, or is it even different? 
      
    These basic questions, as well as others, will be answered in this quick guide. Aside from that, topics such as managing temper tantrums, depression, and occupational therapy for autistic people will be discussed. All of these things give you a general, more intrinsic understanding of what Asperger’s Syndrome involves. 
      
      
      
      
    Book 2: Asperger’s Syndrome is sometimes called high-functioning autism. The premise of this definition will be explained in this book, detailing the various aspect of the disorder, as well as possibilities and limitations. 
      
    For example, we will talk about the most important signs of Asperger’s Syndrome in adults, how to determine if someone has it or if it’s more related to ADHD, and how to treat those symptoms. 
      
      
      
    Book 3: Let’s say your child has Asperger’s Syndrome? He or she has been officially diagnosed with it, or all the signs are present and there is barely any doubt. 
    Now what do you do? 
    Well, with this quick guide you will have at least some of the answers to that question. We will go over a small number of case studies and researched topics that can help you along the way, such as the relationship between autistic disorders and schizophrenia, stomach problems, earlier death, chemical imbalances in the brain, and alternative medicine for those who have an autistic disorder.

    Churches in America are experiencing an unprecedented fracturing due to their belief and attitude toward the LGBTQ community. Armed with only six passages in the Bible—often known as the "clobber passages"—the traditional Christian position has been one that stands against the full inclusion of our LGBTQ brothers and sisters. Unclobber reexamines each of those frequently quoted passages of Scripture, alternating with author Colby Martin's own story of being fired from an evangelical megachurch when they discovered his stance on sexuality.UnClobber reexamines what the Bible says (and does not say) about homosexuality in such a way that breathes fresh life into outdated and inaccurate assumptions and interpretations.
