Even though Nancy's book Love Thy Body can be regarded as a "Self-Help" book -- as I explain below (and here) -- Amazon has it listed as:
- No. 1 New Release in Theology (not bad for former agnostic Nancy)
- No. 1 New Release in Christian Social Issues (not bad for an erstwhile Hippie girl)
- No. 1 New Release in Christian Apologetics (not bad but what you might expect from an ongoing critical thinker)
No worries, Amazon. All is well. We know you need to run a business.
But Now -- let's broaden our horizons.
Here's what I wrote on Facebook a couple of days ago on why Love Thy Body is very much a Self-Help book:
Amazon seems to think LOVE THY BODY is some kind of theology book
"No. 1 New Release in . . . Theology" ???
OK. That's nice . . .
BUT . . . Really
KIND of LIMITING
Because LOVE THY BODY could just as well be in the self-help section of your favorite bookstore
LOVE THY BODY is a SELF-HELP BOOK
Helping regular people regain their holistic humanness
Tired of being . . . DEHUMANIZED . . . ALIENATED . . .
People tired of being treated like pieces of meat to be sliced and diced by academic "gender theorists" barely able to tie their shoelaces
LOVE THY BODY is about . . .
Helping regular folks tired of being TORN APART body and soul by secularism
Regular people need honest, real-world answers to hard questions about life & sexuality
So, let's get practical: LOVE THY BODY
