'I am not a man, I am dynamite.' Ecce Homo is an autobiography like no other. Deliberately provocative, Nietzsche subverts the conventions of the genre and pushes his philosophical positions to combative extremes, constructing a genius-hero whose life is a chronicle of incessant self-overcoming. Written in 1888, a few weeks before his descent into madness, the book sub-titled 'How To Become What You Are' passes under review all Nietzsche's previous works so that we, his 'posthumous' readers, can finally understand him aright, on his own terms. He reaches final reckonings with his many enemies - Richard Wagner, German nationalism, 'modern men' in general - and above all Christianity, proclaiming himself the Antichrist. Ecce Homo is the summation of an extraordinary philosophical career, a last great testament to Nietzsche's will.

The question of the formation of Christian character is an important contemporary issue. Our society is undergoing radical change at the personal and social level. There are forces at work that deconstruct the traditional patterns of human life - the family, the understanding of masculinity and femininity, our view on the nature and use of our sexuality. These forces are rebuilding human society in such a way that it is free from the influence of a religious perspective on life and free from the constraints of a moral approach to human living. The modern attitude is to reject traditional models of the virtuous life in favour of a self-realisation freely pursued outside the constraints of moral codes. There is a certain "morality" which is fashioned by society. Certain things are determined to be "politically correct." Certain stances become fashionable like ecological sensitivity or the perceived threat from sexism, but these are fluid positions and change with fashions of thought. They do not impinge particularly on the inner quality of character but rather reflect certain acceptable attitudes. They are superficial and do not promote serious inner growth. This book seeks to explore the nature of the human person. Then, by drawing on our Christian tradition, consider the ways in which we can build a healthy and happy life fulfilling what God has intended us to become as a faithful imitation of his Son. This is a book about identifying the nature of Christian character. It offers a path which will lead to mature Christian character.

Many believers see the Christian life as a do-your-best struggle. Many live with a sense of failure because they aren't quite what they think they ought to be. Many think that God is disappointed with them and so they adopt a what’s-the-use-of-trying attitude. The performance-orientation that has crept into so many of our churches has placed numerous Christians in severe bondage. BECOMING WHAT YOU ARE is liberating. It sets the believer free to pursue a life of relaxed holiness. Not only does it highlight the believer’s amazing position in Christ, but also shows that spiritual growth is God's responsibility – not ours. The many How to ... chapters focus on how to appropriate the abundant resources available to every believer. The book ends with a brief description of the exciting prospect that every believer can look forward to. The content is steeped in Scripture references, yet packed with many practical illustrations and applications to everyday life situations that every believer can identify with.

Sind Sie zufrieden mit Ihrem Leben, so wie es ist? Oder sagen Sie: Soll’s das wirklich schon gewesen sein? Wenn Sie sich insgeheim denken, dass irgendwo Größeres auf Sie wartet, Ihnen aber noch der letzte Anstoß fehlt, um endlich die verdammte Komfortzone zu verlassen, dann sind Sie hier genau richtig. Denn Jen Sincero wird Sie packen und von der Couch ziehen, damit Sie endlich das Leben leben, auf das Sie selbst neidisch wären. Aber Vorsicht: Nach diesem Buch ist das Leben definitiv anders! Jen Sinceros eigenes Leben war lange Zeit alles andere als berauschend: Sie hangelte sich von einem schlechten Job zum nächsten, hatte nie genug Geld und fuhr ein Auto, das fast auseinanderfiel. Bis sie entschied, dass sie etwas ändern muss. Sie las gefühlt jedes Selbsthilfebuch auf dieser Welt und ging zu Seminaren, bei denen man Leute umarmen oder seine Wut an einem Kissen auslassen musste. Und – es half. Jen Sincero schrieb ihr erstes Buch und schließlich noch ein zweites, das zu einem Bestseller wurde. Sie arbeitete als Coach, gab Seminare, reiste um die Welt und sprach vor großem Publikum. Sie erreichte genau das, wovon sie immer geträumt hatte. Jetzt gibt Jen Sincero ihre Erkenntnisse und ihr Wissen weiter und zeigt, wie man die Fähigkeiten, die in einem schlummern, endlich zum Blühen bringt. Es geht darum, sich glasklar darüber zu werden, was einen glücklich macht und wobei man sich am lebendigsten fühlt, und es dann mutig umzusetzen, statt sich einzureden, man könnte es nicht schaffen. Mit viel Humor und Schlagfertigkeit gibt sie praktische Ratschläge und zeigt Übungen, die dabei helfen die Selbstsabotage zu beenden und das zu erreichen, wovon man träumt.

Zusammen mit dem Taoismus-Experten Stephen Mitchell erläutert Byron Katie das Tao Te King des chinesischen Weisen Lao Tse. Die oft als schwierig und verrätselt empfundenen Worte werden so erfrischend, lebendig und anekdotenreich behandelt, dass die klassische Weisheit ganz aktuell und anschaulich wird. Die geistige Verwandtschaft mit Prinzipien der genialen Fragetechnik „the Work“ wird hier ganz offenbar: Lao Tses Prinzip des „Wu Wei“ (Nicht-tun, Geschehen-lassen) stimmt in verblüffender Weise mit Byron Katies Aufforderung zu „Lieben was ist“ überein.
