How many hours do we spend scrolling Facebook newsfeeds, retweeting something on Twitter, or posing for the perfect selfie on Instagram, hoping what we post will get likes and comments from our friends and followers? To get those likes, we post what is—according to social media standards—pretty, popular, and acceptable. We hide the messy parts of life, play up the fun times, and even twist the truth a bit so we look a little better, smarter, and funnier. But what happens when people start holding us up to these unrealistic standards? What happens when you realize that who you are on social media isn’t who you really are? Have we let social media steal our identity? In #Stolen, author Jessica Fralin uncovers our deep desire to be affirmed, valued, and loved and then points to the only place where that desire can be filled: in Christ not social media. She offers creative #FunFact, #GiveItATry, and #WhatDoYouThink callouts containing fun notes, activities, and ideas to discuss with your youth group and friends. As she tackles the issues and insecurities like popularity, body image, and cyberbullying, Jessica shows you how to find your identity in the one voice that really matters, not the million of voices online.

Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts kommt der englische Gentleman und Nichtstuer Rudolf Rassendyll als Tourist in den fiktiven Kleinstaat Ruritanien, der irgendwo südlich von Dresden liegt. Seine unglaubliche Ähnlichkeit mit dem von finsteren Schurken und politischen Intriganten entführten Monarchen zwingen ihn bald, dessen Stelle einzunehmen, da die Vertrauten des Königs um jeden Preis verhindern wollen, dass der Thron einem Usurpator zugeschanzt wird...Der im Jahre 1894 erstmals erschienene, äußerst rasante und selbstironische Fantasy-Abenteuerklassiker gehört zu den populärsten Romanen des englischen Sprachraums und wurde mehrmals mit großem Aufwand verfilmt. Die nicht minder spannende, ebenfalls von Anthony Hope verfasste Fortsetzung erscheint ebenfalls im Apex-Verlag unter dem Titel Die Rückkehr nach Zenda.Beide Romane wurden ins Deutsche übersetzt von Ronald M. Hahn.

Identity theft. We all know the damage it inflicts—or do we? There’s a kind of identity theft that goes far deeper than our financial records. It impoverishes our souls and keeps us from experiencing the richness in life God intends for us.Have you been ...• Robbed by Relationships?• Mugged by the Mirror?• Stolen by Success?• Pickpocketed by the Past?Mike Breaux exposes the four “identity thieves” that steal our sense of who we truly are and render our lives diminished versions of what they were intended to be. We were never meant to be chameleons, changing into whatever we need to be in order to gain love and acceptance. We were created for more—much more—than the way we look, what we accomplish or fail to accomplish, and the sum of our past rejections, failures, and wounds.The good news is that no matter how they were stolen, our identities are retrievable. With trademark humor, compelling stories, and down-to-earth wisdom, Mike Breaux shows how we can reclaim our deep, God-given identities and live freely, purposefully, and joyously out of a renewed knowledge of who we truly are.

The Audacity to Spy

How Government, Business, and Hackers Rob Us of Privacy

Ever get the feeling you’re being watched? The thieves that steal identities are using cutting-edge, high-tech tools that can take one fact from a social media site, another from an online travel survey, a third from a purchase made via the internet and even access highly confidential medical records. Little by little they piece together your buying habits, your religious and school affiliations, the names of your family and pets, your political views, your driving habits, the places you have vacationed, and much, much more. This is not science fiction and this is not the future, this is what is happening to each and every one of us now - today. And although the vast majority of adults say they are concerned about providing personal information online, nearly 1/3 say they have never used a privacy setting on their computer, never inquired about the charities to whom they donate their money, never worried about someone accessing their medical information and never thought twice about giving a financial institution their social security number over the internet. The Audacity to Spy, written by an attorney with an interest in privacy laws and legislation and her grandmother who is an experienced Information Analyst, reveals the ways in which your identity and personal data have been stolen by various sources. Yes, you should be concerned about the NSA and other government agencies having your phone logs and emails; but you should worry more about the insidious data brokers that are collecting information about you every time you log on to your laptop, use your cell phone, access an app, or use your GPS. Companies are collecting a variety of data about you, combining it with location information, and using it to both personalize their own services and to sell to other advertisers for behavioral marketing. Law enforcement agencies are tracking your car and insurance companies are installing devices to monitor your driving. Clerks are making copies of your credit cards. And if that wasn’t enough, the FBI has reported that hackers have been discovered embedding malicious software in two million computers, opening a virtual door for criminals to rifle through users’ valuable personal and financial information. More than warning you about the ways your data can be stolen, at the end of each chapter are suggestions for limiting the amount of personal data that is available to be seized and divulged. Can you completely cut off the flow of information about yourself? The answer is no, not completely - there is already too much data out there and increasingly sophisticated ways to obtain bits and pieces. But knowing how it is collected, and by whom, gives you the power to control sensitive information and determine how much of your life you wish to expose to those more than willing to exploit it.

"Sanfte Schönheit" oder "wilde Frau" Was macht das Wesen echter Weiblichkeit aus? Wie kann eine Frau heute selbstbewusst und erfüllt leben? John und Stacy Eldredge zeichnen ein neues Bild authentischer Weiblichkeit. Tatkraft, Mut und Selbstbewusstsein haben darin ebenso Platz wie das Bedürfnis, zu lieben und geliebt zu werden. Und welche Rolle spielt die Schönheit für das "schöne Geschlecht"? Schönheit ist keine Frage von Diätplänen und Fitnessprogrammen. Sie ist ein Wesensmerkmal jeder Frau seit Eva, oft genug verborgen hinter den Schutzmechanismen, mit denen wir uns vor den Verletzungen des Lebens schützen. Aber sie kann wieder ans Licht treten, dort, wo eine Frau ihre ureigene Bestimmung entdeckt.
