Book Short Summary:

Where does evil come from? If there is a sovereign creator God, as Christian faith holds, is this God ultimately responsible for evil? Does God's sovereignty mean that God causes each instance of sin and suffering? How do Satan, his demons and hell fit into God's providential oversight of all creation and history? How does God interact with human intention and action? If people act freely, does God know in particular every human decision before the choice is made? In this important book Gregory A. Boyd mounts a thorough response to these ages-old questions, which remain both crucial and contentious, both practical and complex. In this work Boyd defends his scripturally grounded trinitarian warfare theodicy (presented in God at War) with rigorous philosophical reflection and insights from human experience and scientific discovery. Critiquing the classical Calvinist solution to the problem of evil, he advocates an alternative understanding of the sovereignty of the trinitarian God and of the reality of Satan that sheds light on our fallen human condition. While all may not agree with Boyd's conclusions, Satan and the Problem of Evil promises to advance the church's discussion of these critical issues.

Book Short Summary:

Visit these links: http://www.bixandbones.com/ and http://www.lookpokergame.com/ This novel is based on a rumor. The author was among the very first combat officers to arrive on the island of Kyushu, one of the islands of Japan, immediately following the signing of the peace aboard the USS Missouri on 9/3/45. The Japanese civilians had been propagandized for years what monsters Americans were. This story went around the Air Base about a very innocent pilot too young to get a drivers license back home in a poker game had won a Geisha House. If, indeed, he were to fall in love with one of the adorable, feminine young ladies, trained to tend to a mans every wish, what effect that would have on him which, in turn, would have influence on her. Also, what would the officers in that command do about all this an American officer owning a geisha house? Add to that, the Stateside Commanders, officers who spent the whole war in the Training Command back home, who were sent overseas to relieve men with combat points, who were ready to get back home. Also, add to relaxed, free-wheeling combat troops, these spit & polish commanders who wanted to run their new commands by the book. This story is all about mixing those two sets of complete opposites and this is one result.

Book Short Summary:

The New York Times bestseller! A New York Times Notable Book “The tale of how Konnikova followed a story about poker players and wound up becoming a story herself will have you riveted, first as you learn about her big winnings, and then as she conveys the lessons she learned both about human nature and herself.” —The Washington Post It's true that Maria Konnikova had never actually played poker before and didn't even know the rules when she approached Erik Seidel, Poker Hall of Fame inductee and winner of tens of millions of dollars in earnings, and convinced him to be her mentor. But she knew her man: a famously thoughtful and broad-minded player, he was intrigued by her pitch that she wasn't interested in making money so much as learning about life. She had faced a stretch of personal bad luck, and her reflections on the role of chance had led her to a giant of game theory, who pointed her to poker as the ultimate master class in learning to distinguish between what can be controlled and what can't. And she certainly brought something to the table, including a Ph.D. in psychology and an acclaimed and growing body of work on human behavior and how to hack it. So Seidel was in, and soon she was down the rabbit hole with him, into the wild, fiercely competitive, overwhelmingly masculine world of high-stakes Texas Hold'em, their initial end point the following year's World Series of Poker. But then something extraordinary happened. Under Seidel's guidance, Konnikova did have many epiphanies about life that derived from her new pursuit, including how to better read, not just her opponents but far more importantly herself; how to identify what tilted her into an emotional state that got in the way of good decisions; and how to get to a place where she could accept luck for what it was, and what it wasn't. But she also began to win. And win. In a little over a year, she began making earnest money from tournaments, ultimately totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars. She won a major title, got a sponsor, and got used to being on television, and to headlines like "How one writer's book deal turned her into a professional poker player." She even learned to like Las Vegas. But in the end, Maria Konnikova is a writer and student of human behavior, and ultimately the point was to render her incredible journey into a container for its invaluable lessons. The biggest bluff of all, she learned, is that skill is enough. Bad cards will come our way, but keeping our focus on how we play them and not on the outcome will keep us moving through many a dark patch, until the luck once again breaks our way.

Book Short Summary:

Romping through crooked games, dodgy players, exotic venues and incredible hands, 'Poker's Strangest Hands' celebrates the strange history of Poker's most celebrated tournament, its World Championship event and the characters who have graced it with their presence, compiles some of the strangest things said about the game and fully records the details of the strangest Poker Year yet, 2006. The Poker world is divided between those who believe the game to be the most skilled contest ever devised, and those who believe that success in the game relies on pure luck. Sharpe's thorough excavations through long forgotten archives of the game have uncovered the first ever Poker cheat, who was literally making a spectacle of himself in 1829; has unearthed the game which reportedly lasted for 24 years; exposed the US President who gambled away the White House crockery; and discovered that a certain member of the Royal family was very much amused by Poker. Whatever your view this book will appeal to the novice player who can barely tell his flops from his nuts, and equally to the connoisseur of the subtleties of Poker who has developed and matured his or her skills over many years.

When you become the poker prize, all bets are off... Jade Frost thought she was going on a date with her boyfriend--not to his poker game. She really didn’t expect that weasel to throw her in the pot. Then he had the nerve to lose. Talk about the perfect excuse for Jade to make him her ex-boyfriend. She wasn’t quick enough, though. Before she knows it, a frat boy wins the hand--and her. Shep Prescott is extremely handsome and richer than sin, but he doesn’t own her. It was just a game, after all. No matter how disinterested she acts, no matter how rudely she rejects his advances, he keeps coming back. Maybe even more than before. He could have anything he wants, but she’s the only prize he’s after. When she finds herself starting to fall for him, Jade’s confused. There’s more to Shep than the carefree player he shows the world.

Book Short Summary:

Life lessons from those who know best -- the dead: Allison DuBois shares insights on how you can live your legacy today. Known as the inspiration for the hit television show Medium, Allison DuBois lives in a world few of us ever glimpse. She can see what is on both sides of the thin line between life and death, and she regularly encounters spirits who have passed. As part of her life's work, she comforts families who have tragically lost their sons and daughters, helps authorities find dangerous criminals, and locates missing persons. But, like all of us, her first job is being a dedicated member of her family, a treasured friend, and a guiding light to her three daughters. Like the monarch butterfly, whose survival as a species depends on its predecessors' actions several generations before, everyone is influenced by their ancestors. But it is up to individuals, Allison says, to create their own legacies and pass the fire and passion in their lives to their children, their children's children, and the generations beyond. In Secrets of the Monarch, Allison passes on important life lessons she's learned through communicating with the dead. If you want to understand life, Allison teaches, you must understand death. You already know the ending of your story, so make it the best tale you can -- while you can. Everyone is part of a bigger story, but by making the most of your life every day, you can positively affect that story. Some aspects of life and death are leaps of faith. But others are conscious choices that we can make to better our lives and those of future generations. With insightful teachings on both family relationships and friendships, as well as how she herself is inspired to live better tomorrow than she has today, Allison DuBois shows how each of us can make our lives a true masterpiece.
