Summary

Forgive and divorce are both translated into English from the same Greek word in the New Testament. When marriage is talked about as tying the knot, divorce becomes the process of untying that knot.
 
Could forgiveness be better illustrated through the separation and liberation that occurs when a knot is untangled?
 
Can lamenting help us name the layers of disloyalty, betrayal, or abuse that hold us captive?
 
Viewed in this fresh way, Steve Hall shows how God wants to partner with us to heal our painful memories of mistreatment through a cycle of lamenting and forgiving.

    In 1996 meditation teacher Ajayan Borys journeyed to the source of the Ganges River high in India’s Himalayas. Intent on Self-realization, he discovered a deserted cave in a Himalayan forest and for two months lived there alone, meditating in silence, surviving on one sparse meal a day. Through unexpected friendships with holy men, encounters with madmen and the Indian army, surviving harsh mountain conditions (including scorpions and mind-numbing cold), he was opened to the depths of the human Spirit—and to universal insights, the “whispers” of the Himalayas.  
    A riveting read, this true-life account will inspire you with insight born of the clash between the human ego and its striving for the highest of human ideals.

    According to Dr. Maggie Maguire, happiness is serious science, as serious as Maggie takes herself. But science can't always account for life's anomalies--for instance, why her fiancé dumped her for a silk-scarf acrobat and how the breakup sent Maggie spiraling into an extended ice cream-fueled chick flick binge.Concerned that she might never pull herself out of this nosedive, Maggie's friends book her as a speaker on a "New Year, New You" cruise in the Gulf of Mexico. Maggie wonders if she's qualified to teach others about happiness when she can't muster up any for herself. But when a handsome stranger on board insists that smart women can't ever be happy, Maggie sets out to prove him wrong. Along the way she may discover that happiness has far less to do with the head than with the heart.Filled with memorable characters, snappy dialogue, and touching romance, Kristin Billerbeck's The Theory of Happily Ever After shows that the search for happiness may be futile--because sometimes happiness is already out there searching for you."Billerbeck has the most delightful voice I've ever read. I adore her stories, and she returns with an enchanting new novel, The Theory of Happily Ever After. I laughed, cried, and rejoiced with her wonderful characters and was sad when the story ended. Highly recommended!"--Colleen Coble, USA Today bestselling author
