Book Excerpt :

The beloved, bestselling classic that became the movie, A CHRISTMAS STORY -- humorous and nostalgic Americana, reissued in a strikingly designed paperback edition. Before Garrison Keillor and Spalding Gray there was Jean Shepherd: a master monologist and writer who spun the materials of his all-American childhood into immensely resonant--and utterly hilarious--works of comic art. In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash represents one of the peaks of his achievement, a compound of irony, affection, and perfect detail that speaks across generations. In God We Trust, Shepherd's wildly witty reunion with his Indiana hometown, disproves the adage "You can never go back." Bending the ear of Flick, his childhood-buddy-turned-bartender, Shepherd recalls passionately his genuine Red Ryder BB gun, confesses adolescent failure in the arms of Junie Jo Prewitt, and relives a story of man against fish that not even Hemingway could rival. From pop art to the World's Fair, Shepherd's subjects speak with a universal irony and are deeply and unabashedly grounded in American Midwestern life, together rendering a wonderfully nostalgic impression of a more innocent era when life was good, fun was clean, and station wagons roamed the earth. A comic genius who bridged the gap between James Thurber and David Sedaris, Shepherd may have accomplished for Holden, Indiana, what Mark Twain did for Hannibal, Missouri.

Book Short Summary:

Après s’être attaché à déconstruire Pinocchio, Winshluss s’attaque au livre de contes et de légendes le plus lu au monde : la Bible. Un narrateur extérieur, Saint Franky, guide le lecteur, en portant une vision particulièrement acerbe, à travers les différents épisodes marquants de l’Ancien et du Nouveau Testament. Tout comme Pinocchio investissait les multiples parties de l’âme humaine, In God We Trust s’attelle à envelopper la Bible de plusieurs auras. Allant de la parodie du comic book (God vs Superman) à la tragédie adultérine, en passant par une étude sur la disparition des dinosaures, la densité du livre ne laissera au lecteur aucun répit. Ponctuées d’anecdotes inédites, les fabuleuses aventures de Dieu narrées par Winshluss nous en apprendront plus sur ce mystérieux personnage. Véritable voyage spirituel, In God We Trust, apparaît comme une grande épopée où le dessin, majestueux, oscille entre planches de bandes dessinées, gravures, fausses publicités et aquarelles. À la fois didactique et moqueur, Winshluss s’amuse beaucoup et retrouve l’humour dont il avait su doter Pat Boon, Happy end ou Monsieur Ferraille.

Book Short Summary:

Are you tired of the godless way this country is living and how godless leaders are running our country into the ground? Are you tired of our leaders apologizing to the rest of the world for America being a Christian nation? If you answered yes, then author Jason Falls encourages you to read this book, study God’s word, pass it on to someone else, and do something about it. This book is a wake up call from God meant to light a fire in our very souls to get back to the basic trust in God upon which this country was founded. Like so many of us, Jason Falls was taught in elementary school that the Pilgrims came over from England in search of religious freedom to worship the one true God the way He requires us to do. Jason Falls does not believe this is being taught today, so this book can be a short history lesson for some about the founding of our great nation. What we need today is less government, more God, and more God in the government. This is the way our Christian forefathers intended it to be. So Jason Falls urges you to become closer to God and pray for His guidance in making choices that will affect our country, and spread the message that says, ”Yes, we can be a Christian nation.”

Book Short Summary:

The provocative and authoritative history of the origins of Christian America in the New Deal era We're often told that the United States is, was, and always has been a Christian nation. But in One Nation Under God, historian Kevin M. Kruse reveals that the belief that America is fundamentally and formally Christian originated in the 1930s. To fight the "slavery" of FDR's New Deal, businessmen enlisted religious activists in a campaign for "freedom under God" that culminated in the election of their ally Dwight Eisenhower in 1952. The new president revolutionized the role of religion in American politics. He inaugurated new traditions like the National Prayer Breakfast, as Congress added the phrase "under God" to the Pledge of Allegiance and made "In God We Trust" the country's first official motto. Church membership soon soared to an all-time high of 69 percent. Americans across the religious and political spectrum agreed that their country was "one nation under God." Provocative and authoritative, One Nation Under God reveals how an unholy alliance of money, religion, and politics created a false origin story that continues to define and divide American politics to this day.

Book Short Summary:

This book brings together Donald S. Sweeneys lifetime experiences, coupled with his natural(innate) desire to know and understand the facts and truth of situations that affect his life and the lives of others. He has searched out the thoughts of many prominent and highly respectedthough often at opposite ends of the beliefwriters and thinkers for ways to resolve the conflicting beliefs about God between those who; 1. Are atheistic, and those who hold to a faith and trust in God; 2, Are of different monotheistic theologies, 3, Are believers that the creation of the universe started 13.73 billion years ago, and those who believe that the biblical version of the six- day creation is literally true. The conclusion that is reached by In God We Trust is that the conflicting views about existence or non-existence of God can, in fact, be compatible with each other, but that those of opposing viewpoints must give up some of their erroneous ideas..

Book Short Summary:

Today we are facing insurmountable problems because we have taken God out of our homes, schools, churches—and now our nation. Have we taken God out of our lives? Have we become too busy for God? Are we so preoccupied with the cares of this world or the things of this world that we don’t take time or make time for our God? In God We Trust is based on the fact that America started as a nation trusting God, and author B. B. Hicks goes on to look at where we are today as a nation, as a church, and as people of God. In God We Trust teaches us about how to get to know God, trust God, and turn back to God. And most importantly, it will help us learn how to stay connected to God. In God We Trust is a clarion call to the nation, as well as to the church, to turn back to God. We, as people of God, need to put first things first—and God should be first in our lives. We should perform a self-assessment to determine what are our priorities and what is first on our agenda. The Bible tells us that God is a jealous God, and he wants to be first in all things (Exodus 20:4–5). Through Jesus Christ, we can learn to put God first.

Book Short Summary:

For years the term "IN GOD WE TRUST" has labeled our currency and our country and I have been proud to have served my nation and its motto for twenty two years of military service. With that in mind I am disappointed to see the spiritual direction that America is going in. There has been a real assault on the Bible - The Word of God and especially Christianity. I still want to believe that God wants to bless America but I must be honest, I have my doubt that "In God We Trust" probably has seen its better days. What really bothers me is I'm concerned America's motto today is IN GOD WE TRUST, or do we?"

Book Short Summary:

Faith is trust. It is a confidence in the power and goodness of God that leads us to make good decisions and allows us to surrender our lives to him. As we strive to mature spiritually and lead lives pleasing to God, we all want more faith. Hebrews 6:12 says that we are to be "imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises." One of the best ways to grow in faith is to imitate the lives of people who have shown great faith. Hebrews 11 guides us through the lives of men and women--like Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Moses, Rahab, David, and others--who have done just that. Real people with real lives and real problems, who had faith in a great God and trusted him at pivotal moments in their lives. By drawing on some of the greatest lives of faith in the Bible, readers will come to see that God was worthy of these men's and women's trust and faith during biblical times in the same way that he is worthy of ours today.

Book Short Summary:

Why is it easier to obey God than to trust Him? Because obeying God makes sense to us. In most cases, His laws appear reasonable and wise, and even when we don’t want to obey them, we usually concede that they are good for us. But the circumstances we find ourselves in often defy explanation. Before long, we begin to doubt God’s concern for us or His control over our lives. We ask, “Why is God allowing this?” or “What have I done wrong?” During such a time of adversity, Jerry Bridges began a thorough Bible study on the topic of God’s sovereignty. What he learned changed his life, and in Trusting God he shares the fruit of that study. As you explore the scope of God’s power over nations, nature, and even the details of your life, you’ll find yourself trusting Him more completely—even when life hurts. This new edition replaces both Trusting God (paperback ISBN 9781600063053) and the study guide (paperback ISBN 9781600063060) by combining both resources into one volume!

Book Short Summary:

In a world riddled with disappointment, malice, and tragedy, what rationale do we have for believing in a benevolent God? If God is all-powerful and all-loving, why is there so much evil in the world? John Stackhouse takes a historically informed approach to this dilemma, examining what philosophers and theologians have said on the subject and offering reassuring answers for thoughtful readers. Stackhouse explores how great thinkers have grappled with the problem of evil--from the Buddha, Confucius, Augustine, and David Hume to Martin Luther, C. S. Lewis, and Alvin Plantinga. Without brushing aside the serious contradictions posed by a God who allows incurable diseases, natural disasters, and senseless crimes to bring misery into our lives, Stackhouse asks if a world completely without evil is what we truly want. Would a life without suffering be a meaningful life? Could free will exist if we were able to choose only good? Stackhouse examines what the best minds have had to say on these questions and boldly affirms that the benefits of evil, in fact, outweigh the costs. Finally, he points to Christian revelation--which promises the transformation of suffering into joy--as the best guide to God's

Book Short Summary:

In God I trust The prophet Daniel was a man both tested and exalted. His commitment to the Lord God Almighty never fluctuated. He relied upon God for both life-saving miracles and the smallest of provisions. In this intriguing book, we will examine this one man’s unwavering faith in his God, beginning from the time that he arrived in Babylon as a young Jew and continuing throughout his years of service under the authority of several kings and kingdoms. There is perhaps no better example of godly faith, dependency, trust, and worship than in the character of the prophet Daniel. He was faithful to God and commendable before men. "This chapter by chapter and verse-by-verse exegesis of the wonderful prophetic work of Daniel—in itself one of the most readable books of the Bible—is a triumph. This major collaborative undertaking provides a format for devotional study that challenges any other work of its kind. For any reader with a thirst for irrefutable Bible knowledge, this scholarly but practical approach to the study of Daniel is enthusiastically recommended." The Late Dr. James Kennedy, Ph.D Senior Minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church

Book Short Summary:

Na de moord op Aldo Moretti, een voormalig bankdirecteur die zou hebben geprofiteerd van het faillissement van duizenden kleine huizenbezitters, valt er een tweede slachtoffer: bankier Bernstein. Het is niet simpel om een mogelijke dader aan te wijzen, want heel Amerika houdt de bankiers verantwoordelijk voor de financiële crisis. De hoofdverdachte voldoet echter niet aan het signalement van een Robin Hood: de verwarde zoon van een militair, wiens motieven racistisch gekleurd zijn. Horowitz en zijn baas proberen licht te werpen op deze moorden, die samenhangen met de problemen van het begin van de eenentwintigste eeuw.

Book Short Summary:

Our perception of God makes a difference in every crevice of our character, from our inner anxieties to our public conversations. It determines whether we're trusting or suspicious, whether we're happy or discontent - and whether or not we can rely on God matters mightily on the day of our death. Mark Buchanan's third book continues his penetrating exploration of the God we worship. Bravely and honestly, he poses the direst question of human existence: Can God be trusted? It's life drunk deeply, lived to the hilt—where we walk with the God who is surprising, dangerous, and mysterious. It's the terrain where God doesn't make sense out of our disasters and our boredom, but keeps meeting us in the thick of them. But unless we trust in His character, we'll never venture in. We will sit at the stream all day, dying of thirst, but not daring to drink. To follow God is to drink and drink from the stream, even if it means—especially if it means—getting swallowed up. Let Mark Buchanan show you the entrance to the Holy Wild, where you can live face-to-face with the beautiful, dangerous God of creation.

Book Short Summary:

"You just can’t trust anyone!" seems to be a constant refrain in the modern world. Indeed, learning to trust is one of life’s most difficult lessons. "That’s because trust is not a verb," says legendary life coach Iyanla Vanzant, "it’s a noun. Trust is a state of mind and a state of being." In this wise book, the New York Times best-selling author and host of OWN’s popular reality TV show Iyanla: Fix My Life reveals how to cultivate this liberating power—by exploring what trust really is, how to trust, and why to trust. She outlines the special rewards that come from mastering the four essential trusts: trust in God, trust in yourself, trust in others, and trust in life. And she challenges us to see how each of these are actually deeply interconnected. Too often our fear of whether or not we can really trust an individual or an institution and what they represent erodes our confidence and undermines our relationships. When trust is broken or there is a betrayal, it can bring us face-to-face with our shadow, revealing that someone has failed to live up to our expectations and thus "outs" our hidden beliefs. "You never get what you ask for; you always get what you expect," says Iyanla. When someone betrays our trust it reveals the high price paid for such deep disconnection. This book’s pragmatic trust-building prescriptions demonstrate how communication, consistency, and cooperation can antidote trust-destroying behaviors and revitalize us with increased authenticity, greater resilience, and renewed peace in every part of our lives.

Book Short Summary:

Through absolute trust in God that characterized the early American leadership as virtuous and courageous, the founding fathers were able to secure independence from the British and build the United States into a vibrant nation. The teachings of the Bible so much influenced the leadership that John Adams, the 2nd President said, “we recognize no sovereign but God, and no King as Jesus!” Barely a century later, however, civil war broke out after an attempt was made to assassinate Andrew Jackson, the 7th President during the Bank War. Other US Presidents like Abraham Lincoln (the 16th President) and John F. Kennedy (35th President) were not lucky enough to escape assassinations. Thomas Jefferson, the 3rd President said, “Educate and inform the whole mass of people. Enable them to see that it is in their best interest to preserve peace and order, and they will preserve them”.

Book Short Summary:

What beliefs are core to the Christian faith? This book is here to help you understand the reason for your hope as a Christian so that you can see it with fresh sight and invite others into the conversation. A lot of Christians take their story—the narratives that give rise to their beliefs—for granted. They pray, go to church, perhaps even read their Bible. But they might be stuck if a stranger asked them to explain what they believe and why they believe it. Author, pastor, and theologian Mike Horton unpacks the essential and basic beliefs that all Christians share in a way that is easy to understand and applicable to our lives today. And in a way that will make you excited to be a Christian! Core Christianity covers topics like: Jesus as both fully God and fully man. The doctrine of the Trinity. The goodness of God despite a broken world. The ways God speaks. The meaning of salvation. What is the Christian calling? Includes discussion questions for individual or group use. This introduction to the basic doctrines of Christianity is perfect for those who are new to the faith, as well as those who have an interest in deepening their understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ.

Book Short Summary:

If God is holy, then He can’t sin. If God can’t sin, then He can’t sin against you. If He can’t sin against you, shouldn’t that make Him the most trustworthy being there is? Bestselling author Jackie Hill Perry, in her much anticipated follow-up to Gay Girl, Good God, helps us find the reason we don’t trust God— we misunderstand His holiness. In Holier Than Thou, Jackie walks us through Scripture, shaking the dust off of “holy” as we’ve come to know it and revealing it for what it really is: good news. In these pages, we will see that God is not like us. He is different. He is holy. And that’s exactly what makes Him trustworthy. As it turns out, God being “holier than thou” is actually the best news in the world, and it’s the key to trusting Him.

Book Short Summary:

You don’t have to understand God to trust him. “Just trust me.” Those are the words we often hear in movies just before something bad happens. And yet, we are told to trust God. In a culture where we tend to take control of our own lives, trusting God has become a religious platitude rather than a life-changing attitude. We say it, but do we really mean it? And what does trusting God really look like? Sharon, Mary, and Gwen—the Girlfriends in God ministry team—have been there. They’ve traveled the tough roads of life to discover the peace and power that comes from grabbing the hand of God and trusting his plan. The life stories they share bring laughter and sometimes tears, but always spiritual growth. Each of the 12-week sections concludes with a Bible study guide and journal page, inviting you to lock arms with Sharon, Mary, and Gwen and share with other women in a small group setting or to use individually in your own quiet time.

This book tells the intriguing and often colorful stories of the medical words we use. The origins of clinical and scientific terms can be found in Greek and Latin myths, in places such as jungles of Uganda and the islands of the Aegean Sea, in the names of medicine’s giants such as Hippocrates and Osler, and in some truly unlikely sources. In this book you will learn the answers to questions such as: • What disease was named for an American space flight? • Do you know the echoic word for elephantine rumbling of the bowels? • What drug name was determined by drawing chemists’ notes out of a hat? • What are surfer’s eye, clam digger’s itch, and hide porter’s disease?

Knowing a word’s history assists in understanding not only what it means, but also some of the connotative subtleties of terms used in diagnosis and treatment.

Book Short Summary:

Because of trust in leadership, in each other, and in the mission, a tiny company like John Deere grew into a worldwide leader. On the opposite spectrum, a lack of trust is what eventually sank the seemingly unsinkable corporation of Enron. A culture of trust for all companies large and small is invaluable. Trust turns deflection into transparency, suspicion into empowerment, and conflict into creativity. And what many have learned unfortunately is that no enterprise is too large or too successful to withstand a lack of trust within its walls.In The 10 Laws of Trust, JetBlue chairman and Stanford Graduate School of Business professor Joel Peterson explores how a culture of trust gives companies an edge. Consider this: What does it feel like to work for a firm where leaders and colleagues trust one another? Peterson has found that, when freed from micromanagement and rivalry, every employee contributes his or her best. Risk taking and innovation become the norm. In clear, engaging prose, highlighted by compelling examples, Peterson details how to establish and maintain a culture of trust, including:• Start with integrity• Invest in respect• Empower everyone• Require accountability• Keep everyone informed• And much more!As Peterson notes, “When a company has a reputation for fair dealing, its costs drop: Trust cuts the time spent second-guessing and lawyering.” With this indispensable resource for businesses large and small, you will learn how to plant the seeds of trust throughout your organization--and reap the rewards of reputation, profits, and success!

Book Short Summary:

“When we believe the Bible as it is, we will see the power of God move in our lives and in our community as it did centuries ago in Bible times.” -Mel Tari Translated into dozens of languages, with millions of copies sold, Like a Mighty Wind remains a beloved classic from global evangelist Mel Tari. Recounting the incredible story of revival on the island of Timor during 1965 in the midst of political turmoil, the book is an amazing testament to the power of faith and the reality of God's power to work miracles in modern times. The Spirit of God that swept across the island “like a mighty wind” continues today throughout Indonesia although persecution of Christians is all too common. The story of God's powerful revival in this region remains a testament to the truth of God's Word, and serves as a reminder to all believers that the Spirit of God manifests in our world now as it did in the earliest days of the Church.

Book Short Summary:

God’s promises are packed with His provision – according to His riches in glory. And you can’t get any more packed than that! God is an abundant God, a God of plenty. Whatever we place into God’s hands, however small, God will enlarge and use in a mighty way. We must never think that what we have is too small. Nothing is too small for God. It may seem small to us, but when God blesses it, it multiplies. A tiny acorn becomes a large oak tree. Perhaps we feel that our gifts, our time, our talents, and our efforts are too small to make a difference. But when we trust God with them and place them into His hands, He blesses them and increases them. God uses them in ways we never imagined.
