Testimonies abound in the Christian faith, but there is perhaps none more powerful than A Woman´s Silent Testimony. In his new book, Dr. Daniel Tomlinson draws parallels from pregnancy and birth to spiritual truths in the Word of God. Conception is an allegory to new birth, fetal life represents our life on earth, and birth is analogous to our physical death and our ultimate new life in heaven with God.Just as Jesus died, was buried, and resurrected, we die, are buried, and resurrected, both in the physical and metaphorical senses. Even more compelling are the comparisons Dr. Tomlinson makes about pregnancy and familiar characters found in the Bible. Jonah died to his self, he was buried in the great fish, and he was resurrected to bring light to the Gentiles. Paul underwent many ´´labor pains´´, facing persecution from the Jews he spoke the gospel to, before seeing the birth of a new child—the church.While a birth is a joyous occasion, a mother will sometimes experience postpartum depression. This experience is mirrored in our lives as Christians. There are mountains and valleys, and when we are in the valleys, it´s faith in God that will bring us back to the mountaintop. It´s these and other parallels that give new meaning to pregnancy and A Woman´s Silent Testimony.Dr. Tomlinson is the author of Birth Pangs: How Pregnancy Reveals God´s Plan for the Ages. He has practiced obstetrics and gynecology since 1988 and has witnessed over 5,000 births. He can be seen on his local CBS news affiliate as a medical expert. He lives with his wife, Julie, in Medford, Oregon. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Shawna Windom. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tate/000625/bk_tate_000625_sample.mp3.

Award-winning neurologist and scholar Dr. David Perlmutter makes a compelling case for a grain-free lifestyle in his nonfiction book, Grain Brain. He claims that carbohydrates hinder brain development, impairing cognitive function and contributing to the development of neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer´s and dementia. Most diseases of the brain, he argues, are preventable when one eats properly and adopts other healthy habits. He then gives readers the insight and advice they need to improve their lives and keep their brains functioning at peak efficiency for decades to come. This summary explores the major ideas found in Grain Brain, as well as the key take-aways from each chapter. Use it to help you make sense of the key thoughts Perlmutter presents and understand why the foods you eat play such an important role in your brain´s health. The book also presents readers with lists of must-have dietary staples, foods to consume in moderation, and foods to avoid, along with recipes that are both nutritious and tasty. Still, listeners may want to approach Grain Brain with caution: Although he uses scientific studies to back up his claims, Perlmutter does not acknowledge or respond to work that directly contradicts his own sources, which hampers his credibility. He also makes some illogical claims with no research to back them up. Allow our summary of Grain Brain to give you a complete picture of everything you should take away from this nonfiction piece. 1.

[It is] well crafted, fearless and succinct . . .
