GOOD BOOKS FOR YOUR WEEK-END 

Today, I’m presenting the last 4 titles added to my Goodreads TBR.

FICTION

The Constantine CodexHarvard Professor Jonathan Weber is finally enjoying a season of peace
when a shocking discovery thrusts him into the national spotlight once again.
While touring monasteries in Greece, Jon and his wife Shannon–a seasoned archaeologist–
uncover an ancient biblical manuscript
containing the lost ending of Mark and an additional book of the Bible.
If proven authentic, the codex could forever change the way the world views the holy Word of God.
As Jon and Shannon work to validate their find,
it soon becomes clear that there are powerful forces who don’t want the codex to go public.
When it’s stolen en route to America,
Jon and Shannon are swept into a deadly race to find the manuscript
and confirm its authenticity before it’s lost forever. [Goodreads]

NONFICTION

Mind Over MedicineA NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER       We’ve been led to believe that when we get sick, it’s our genetics. Or it’s just bad luck—and doctors alone hold the keys to optimal health. For years, Lissa Rankin, M.D., believed the same. But when her own health started to suffer, and she turned to Western medical treatments, she found that they not only failed to help; they made her worse. So she decided to take matters into her own hands.     Through her research, Dr. Rankin discovered that the health care she had been taught to practice was missing something crucial: a recognition of the body’s innate ability to self-repair and an appreciation for how we can control these self-healing mechanisms with the power of the mind. In an attempt to better understand this phenomenon, she explored peer-reviewed medical literature and found evidence that the medical establishment had been proving that the body can heal itself for over 50 years.     Using extraordinary cases of spontaneous healing, Dr. Rankin shows how thoughts, feelings, and beliefs can alter the body’s physiology. She lays out the scientific data proving that loneliness, pessimism, depression, fear, and anxiety damage the body, while intimate relationships, gratitude, meditation, sex, and authentic self-expression flip on the body’s self-healing processes.     In the final section of the book, you’ll be introduced to a radical new wellness model based on Dr. Rankin’s scientific findings. Her unique six-step program will help you uncover where things might be out of whack in your life—spiritually, creatively, environmentally, nutritionally, and in your professional and personal relationships—so that you can create a customized treatment plan aimed at bolstering these health-promoting pieces of your life. You’ll learn how to listen to your body’s “whispers” before they turn to life-threatening “screams” that can be prevented with proper self-care, and you’ll learn how to trust your inner guidance when making decisions about your health and your life.     By the time you finish Mind Over Medicine, you’ll have made your own Diagnosis, written your own Prescription, and created a clear action plan designed to help you make your body ripe for miracles [Goodreads]
