Publisher: Ignatius Press
Mary Beth Bonacci has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people across the country and around the world-about friendship, about relationships, about marriage, about God's plan for sexuality, and about finding real, honest love. And they speak back to her. They ask her questions-about sex, about dating, about healing after a shattered relationship, about marriage, about their struggles to live love. In this newly updated and expanded edition of Real Love, Mary Beth shares those questions-and her answers-in an even more comprehensive guide which addresses the details of the very real struggle we all face in trying to live real love in a world gone mad. Through these questions and her answers, Mary Beth offers a comprehensive catechesis of the Church's teaching in the areas of marriage and human sexuality. She tackles the toughest issues-premarital sex, contraception, divorce, homosexuality, internet pornography and others. She gives practical advice on living the Church's teachings. And throughout it all, she demonstrates that living respect for God's gift of sexuality is the way-the only way-to find real, honest love.

Category: Social Science
In Real Love, Andrew Ross, one of our preeminent social critics, explores the vital connection between economic life and cultural expression. From the consequences of cyberspace for work and play to the uses and abuses of genetics in the O.J. trial, from world scarcity to world music, Ross interrogates the cultural forms through which economic forces take their daily toll upon our communities and environment. Examining the effects of debates about race, technology, ecology, and the arts on social and legal change, Ross focuses in particular on how demands for certain forms of cultural justice often go hand in hand with injustices of other sorts, and shows why cultural politics are a real and inescapable part of any argument for social change.

The truth hurts and no one is spared. This is the overriding theme of the new book from Johnnie Newkirk Jr. Brutally honest and thought provoking, Real Love. Real Issues. Real Solutions. strikes at the heart of humanity, a fierce reflection on reality, and a challenge to open our eyes and to cross all barriers all this from one Renaissance man who spares no one as he takes on the minority community, the church, and the politicians. Newkirk speaks from experience and tackles current issues such as terrorism, gay issues, pedophilia and many others with acerbic wit and leaves lasting profundities for the reader to contemplate. This contemporary book of vicious commentaries is a must read. And a lot of what he states can, and is, fairly, substantiated. THE TRUTH BE TOLD Religion is a subject that I dislike to address. But I feel I must do so in the name of fairness. Religion has become a big business, and a profitable one at that. This is not a theory, but indeed a fact. In theory, there is separation of church and state. But in reality, it's a marriage that becomes stronger each and every day. It's not about promoting the message of God. It's about promoting the message, of the messenger, who claims to speak on behalf of God. Oh, what fools we mortals must be, when we lose all sense and rationality. Many priests are, and always have been, sleeping with boys. These priests were/are not only engaging in homosexual and pedophile acts, but were/are also committing statutory rape, by the mere fact that they were/are sexually involved with these under-aged boys. Yet the authorities gave them a pass. Because they're a religious organization. And that was, and still is, their rationalization. But it's all right for the pope, who is the most powerful religious leader in the world, to speak out against marriage between gays, but will not speak out, or take a stand against the immorality and illegality that many of his priests and other church officials are committing from day to day. We are a part of God and God is a part of us. And only in God should we place our trust. Church leaders and politicians are one and the same. It's all about power and money, and that's the name of the game. Deep down inside we all know right from wrong. Anyone who tells you different is only stringing you along. For God lives within each of us, so call on Him in your hour of need. He will never let you down; this I guarantee. The church and religion are institutions that society greatly needs as long as they remain fair and balanced and divorce themselves from politics, power, and greed. When one does not look at things rationally, logically, or ask questions when something doesn't make sense, this is not living by faith, it's living by pure ignorance. God supplied us with a brain to assess things with. When one becomes obsessed with religion and will not question it that person has become fanatical about it. And you will find a lot of these said fanatics sitting right in church. Because, to them, the church is more than just their home, it is also their turf. Fanatics aren't good for the church, religion, or society. They're a threat to all of humanity. The Bible, is a wonderful book, this I totally agree. And I advise everyone to read it, and I do so open-heartedly. There are many different versions of the Bible as you well know. A lot of books were lost or deliberately destroyed. Why? Only God knows. Men said that the words in the Bible came to them directly from God. Who took the dictation and where are the written logs? If no one wrote it down then it's all hearsay. Considering the many different translations that it has undergone and so many books that have been deliberately destroyed, or hidden, what does your common-sense say? The Bible is a wonderful

Author: Queen E. Lacey
Queen is the author of “It’s Not About Religion, God Wants A Relationship” and “From My Heart to Yours”. As in all Queen’s books, they are a collection of poems to encourage the reader to not just see themselves as a Christian or being religious, but to know they have a covenant relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. When you are in a covenant relationship, things can't just come in to break that covenant. No one person is perfect, so you will make mistakes and/or bad choices. This should not disqualify you from love. The poems in this book are based off of real life situations. The author, Queen E. Lacey, wants you to know that nothing will separate you from God's love. As in Queen’s other books, she shared her personal life stores through “An Open Book Moment”. In this book those moments reflect the search for love. Unfortunately, that search took her in and out of different beds. Through her writings, Queen is very open about her life experiences. As she allows you to journey through her life, her one desire is that everyone would know that God's love outweighs any bad choices anyone may have made in life. As you read through the different poems and are able to identify yourself through them, know that you too are still loved by God and nothing can separate you from that love. Queen E. Lacey was born and raised in White Plains, N.Y. and now resides in Phoenix, AZ. Queen is currently a member of the Church of the Remnant, under the leadership of Pastors Warren H. Stewart, Jr. and Chrystal Stewart in Phoenix, AZ. There she works with the pastor’s aid, card ministry, prison ministry (soon to start), and any outreach going forward. At Remnant we don’t wait on titles to be given, we see the need so we get to work.

This is the story of a mature love relationship between a man and a woman in their mid 40s. Each of them has been a bit unlucky in love in the past and have almost given up hope of ever finding a real love. Becca Connelly is approximately 45 years old, gorgeous, and an elementary school teacher living in Williamsburg,Virginia. Tall, brown shoulder length hair, green eyes and feminine figure. She was deeply heartbroken when her marriage ended and has not seen or heard from her ex-husband Tripp in fifteen years. She has struggles to make it but has rebuilt her life to some degree. She has not been with any man since her husband deserted her. She does not trust men. She does not let anyone but close girlfriends and family into her life. She thinks it was her fault that she was abandoned by someone she loved and trusted. She had expected to live her entire life with him. Divorce was not an option, but forced on her unwillingly. Michael Stevens has just recently moved to Williamsburg. He is tall, muscular, brown haired, gray eyes and gorgeous of course too. He has just retired from a career in the Marines. He was a Colonel when he left active duty, having served all over the country and tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He settles in Williamsburg since the only family he has left is a sister and her family living in Richmond an hour away. He buys an expensive colonial brick home for a life he doesn't have as of yet. He has never been married, only passing relationships that really mean nothing to him at all. Michael sees Becca one night in June when she comes into a restaurant while he is having a drink alone at the bar. He watches her and wonders about her. He sees her ex-husband come in and after while figures out that she is meeting her ex to give him back a bracelet she still has. Even though Tripp is now on his third wife, he makes a move to start things up with Becca. Michael sees she is distressed and impulsively goes to rescue her by pretending to be her boyfriend. It takes a while but Tripp finally leaves. And so it begins...

Author Sheremirah Jones captures the sheer happiness, sadness, and wistfulness of love; she offers an honest look at love-for better or worse. The poems evoke the gentle longing that comes from first love and the understanding that increases as love grows. She sees the hope of love of all types, from children, friends, as well as lovers. "When It Comes to Real Love" offers poems that speak to our very souls and take us on an emotional roller coaster of discovery of the way that we perceive and experience love. "I Need to Be I need to be where the beautiful things are. Where flowers flow and water ripples. Where old plan leaves catch the wind breeze. Where everything is quiet and at a stand still. I need to be there is meditation. I need to be where things feel alive. Where things talk but don't actually have lips. But you can just vibe there conversation is happening. A place where love is so strong it's what you look like. This place is a feel good place. A restrain from all evil."
