SUNBURY PRESS BOOKS

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released The Small Book of Practical Wisdom for Regular People by Terry Ray.

About the Book:
“There is a vast ocean of information available today …and barely a drop of Wisdom.”

case5.000x8.000.inddYou will not find any ancient Chinese wisdom nor mysterious quotes from The Tibetan Book of the Dead in this book. The practical insights found here are 100 original sayings by the author. Reminiscent of a modern day Mark Twain, Terry Ray’s wisdom and wit grew out of the experiences of his chaotic, adventurous, happy, tragic, confusing, loving, brokenhearted, betrayed, accomplished, failed, successful, unpredictable life.

The author’s autobiography in bullet points:

• Born and raised in a four room mill house heated by a small coal stove
• One big mean older brother, two cold unloving unhappy parents
• Bizarre number of deaths surrounding childhood
• Life on the streets, other eccentric neglected…

Bill Foley suggests a better way to go in “The 10 Second Shift”

Pennsylvanus Book Blog

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released Bill Foley’s new book,The 10 Second Shift, about colon health.

About the Book:

tss_fcChange the way you feel with this simple recommendation!
The 10-Second Shift
will ask you-either man or woman-to change the way you perform a routine, hygienic function, one that you already partake in just by the simple nature of being a human; you will just need to step out of the box like I did and learn a new twist on the procedure-one that will take about 10 seconds to complete. Can you be open to that? Of course you can!

I walk around every, single day with an amazing feeling emanating from inside my body. It hasn’t always been that way. As a matter of fact, I was just like the rest of our population, so what did I know? Not much, I’ll admit. At least until…

James A. Campbell leads the way into the realm of pastoral ministry in care settings for older adults

Rev. James A. Campbell

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released James A. Campbell’s second edition of his classic book,What Do You Say, about ministering in eldercare settings.

About the Book:
wdys_fcLearning to Listen for Grace Among Our Elders
This is the 25th anniversary edition of What Do You Say? Its first publishing necessitated further printing. Once out of print, requests kept coming for a new edition. Twenty-five years after its release, it was still being used as a model of discovering the blessing of our elders. Its truths more than ever speak to the larger hunger and urgency of engaged listening in an isolating, disconnected world.

James A. Campbell leads the way into the realm of pastoral ministry in care settings for older adults. What do you say in such settings? Campbell is unflinchingly honest about the question. More than anything, he wants to know where and how grace is…

Dr. Arif Shaikh offers 365 healing tips for the mind, body, and soul

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released Healing Tips for the Mind, Body, and Soul by Arif M. Shaikh, MD.

ht_fcA Note from the Author:

How I see the world:

From where I sit and view the world, It helps me constantly change.

I become a physician because I wanted to help people, only to realize, that I cannot help anyone; but learn from everyone.

Someone once said, “If a doctor listens to the patient, the patient will tell him what is wrong. If a doctor listens more carefully, the patient will tell the doctor what he should do about it, and if the doctor listens more carefully, the patient will tell the doctor what is wrong with the doctor.”

I find this to be true.

I am reminded of Jesus saying, “Physicians thy heal themselves.”

Patients are just mirrors, showing me my sick self, and helping me grow personally.

I am grateful to each one for helping me be who I am. I love that.

Healing tips are basically what I learned from others and therefor like to share, hoping to have their input, so I may keep learning.

The letters I received are lot more powerful than the book I wrote.

This book is just a talk, but the letters from others are the walk, and the walk is much louder!

I thank my Creator, who helps me all along, especially my parents, my siblings, my wife, my children, co-workers, family, friends, my patient, and all humans in general.

About the Author:
Dr. Arif M. Shaikh graduated from the Ross University School of Medicine, Roseau, Dominica in 1987. He works in Steelton, PA and 1 other location and specializes in Family Medicine. Dr. Shaikh is affiliated with Penn State Milton S Hershey Medical Center and Pinnacle Health at Harrisburg Hospital.

Praise for Healing Tips:

“You are my friend as well as my physician. The book Healing Tips is a plethora of information. Many talks we’ve shared over the years have brought to light and many pieces of advice for both of us. As Ben Franklin once said, ‘Something well done is better than well said.’”  —John Cavalier

“I loved your book Healing Tips. I have been meaning to tell you how beneficial my visits to you have been. Your book and your encouragement and overall positive approach have been profoundly helpful in restoring my self-image and providing insights into the root cause of my problem.” —Stan Stohl

“Thank you for your insightful book. It has been very helpful to me as I reflect on choices I have made in my life and the consequences and outcomes that have followed. The healing tips in your book, on your website and when I see you in the office make me realize some of the destructive behaviors I have allowed in my life and MY ability to make positive changes. It is no one else’s fault but mine if I can’t be happy. No one controls my happiness except me—I am the only person that can allow someone to take my happiness away.” —A. F.
