Invitation to a Virtual Book Tour on Healing Heart Issues

I‘d like to invite you to listen to the replay of  the Virtual Book Tour on The Healing Code book, which took place on Thursday, October 28. I  interviewed Dr. Alex Loyd on his book, which has become a #1 bestseller at amazon.com in 9 categories shortly after its launch in June.

Dr. Loyd talked about a new paradigm mode for healing, called “The Healing Code.” Though it has had remarkable results in terms of all kinds of healing, Dr. Loyd stresses that the healing it addresses is the healing of “heart issues”–the same thing Solomon referred to when he said, “Guard your heart above all else, for from it flow all the issues of life.”

Find out what these “issues of the heart” are, why they’re at the source of just about any issue you can have, the scientific underpinnings of The Healing Code, and much more. (And if you’re interested in the spiritual foundation for this, you can go here to learn more about their philosophy. )

If you have a question of your own about The Healing Code, please ask it here.  This is also the link to register for the Virtual Book Tour, so even if you don’t have a question but want to register, sign up and say “none” in the question box. Dr. Loyd continues to answer questions in his weekly teleseminars, and I too will be answering questions on my own sites as a Healing Codes Coach/Practitioner.

You also get to download a 60+ page excerpt when you sign up and listen. You can start reading the book right away!

Though this new healing paradigm may seen new and even strange, I encourage you to at least give a listen. If you’re interested in the spiritual underpinnings of The Healing Code, I did another interview with Dr. Alex Loyd and his spiritual mentor, Larry Napier. You can access that at www.spiritualhealingcodes.com. We went into great detail about the scriptural basis of The Healing Code in that call.

Fascinating Interview on Evidence for God’s Existence

Meyer_Stephen_03I‘ve always been fascinated by science, and so it’s been very exciting to me to see so much of the latest research in physics, biology, cosmology and other sciences that point to the amazing complexity of the universe.

Much of it may also provide evidence–scientific evidence–that God exists.

Recently I interviewed Dr. Stephen Meyer, director of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture and a founder both of the intelligent design movement and of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture, intelligent design’s primary intellectual and scientific headquarters.

If you’ve wondered if there is scientific evidence you can point to for the existence of God, for your own certainty or to convince someone else, I invite you to listen to this Virtual Tour with Dr. Stephen Meyer. You even get to ask Dr. Meyer a question! (Though the live event is past, questions will continue to be answered at the TrueU.org blog.)

This is rare access to someone who speaks all over the world and is a recognized voice in the scientific community.

Meyer earned his PhD in the History and Philosophy of Science from Cambridge University for a dissertation on the history of origin of life biology and the methodology of the historical sciences. Previously he worked as a geophysicist with the Atlantic Richfield Company after earning his undergraduate degrees in Physics and Geology.

Dr. Meyer’s most recent book is Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design. Other books he has co-written or edited two books are Darwinism, Design, and Public Education with Michigan State University Press and Science and Evidence of Design in the Universe (Ignatius 2000).

He has also authored numerous technical articles as well as editorials in magazines and newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The Houston Chronicle, The Chicago Tribune, First Things and National Review.

If you have a question for Dr. Meyer, ask it at www.askstephenmeyer.com. He may answer your question in the future, and you’ll get access to the recording which you can even download to listen to at your convenience.

Master Leaders: Revealing Conversations with 30 Leadership Greats by George Barna with Bill Dallas

On Thursday, December 10, I conducted a Virtual Book Tour with George Barna on his new book, Master Leaders: Revealing Conversations with 30 Leadership Greats. I invite you to listen to the replay (if you don’t have a question, feel free to write “none” in the box).

I grilled George on the most-asked questions about leadership, and his answers were based not only on his own insights, but on the insights gleaned from these 30 other leadership greats.

For instance: Ken Blanchard, Tony Dungy, Newt Gingrich, Henry Cloud, John Ashcroft, Colleen Barrett, Seth Godin, San Chand, Mike Huckabee, Laurie Beth Jones, Patrick Lencioni, Ben Carson … the list goes on.

If you’re a leader of any type, you’ll be fascinated by what George Barna learned from these top leaders. Sign up to get a free sample of the book and listen to the replay. There is also a very special bonus only those who listen to the VBT will know about (and it’s a limited time offer).

A Gift Almost Missed (A Lesson in Seeing)

This message has to be both seen and heard, rather than read, to be grasped.

It’s only 4 minutes long. Click, sit back and watch, and I hope it will give you new eyes to see the gifts of today. (I’m not scowling, really–just squinting in the sun. Next time I’ll be more aware of the sun! Still getting this video thing down….)

(Little side note: This was shot 2 days ago, and when I tried to get it on this blog, something happened to the blog. In the process of trying to fix that problem, I contacted a friend. The results of that contact blessed us both, reigniting and deepening our friendship. So the “problem” of my blog being messed up was really a “disguised gift,” resulting in blessing for both of us. Remember: God is good, and at work even in our problems.)

This book is meaty! I have an 18-year-old son myself, and when I started the book, I thought, “Oh, it’s not going to help me, my son is too old.”

Wrong!

One of the key things they say that caught my attention is that, Continue reading “Reminder: Virtual Book Tour on Parenting “Wild Things” (Boys!)”

Dinesh D’Souza Virtual Book Tour Replay Ready

If you missed last night’s Virtual Book Tour with New York Times best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza on his book, What’s So Great about Christianity, you can listen to the replay at your convenience.

These are just some of the questions (gleaning the most-asked questions from the nearly 700 submitted by believers, atheists, and agnostics) that Dinesh answered:

  • “Why is Christianity under such attack nowadays?”
  • “Believing in God/Christianity requires a disconnect from science and reality. Science has all but proven that all of the theistic accounts for creation are in error. What is the best scientific proof for God?”
  • “How is Christianity compatible with Western thought and Democracy, and how compatible is it with socialism?”
  • “Though it’s true that Christianity has inspired great movements in the arts, writing and architecture fields, it has also inspired a lot of scorn the world over, in the shape of the Spanish Inquisition, the Salem witch trials, the various wars in Ireland, The Balkans, Europe and the Middle East. So I ask you, how can you still endorse a faith that has inspired so much hatred, bigotry and murder in the history of humanity?”
  • “Just what is it that seems to draw people toward unbelief, or away from belief?”
  • “How do you account for evil in this world if God is good and all powerful?”

Dinesh, who regularly debates atheists such as Christopher Hitchens and (on December 3) Peter Singer from Princeton U, is not afraid to tackle the tough questions. Listen to the replay of our interview … and feel free to comment on this blog.
