    In this dialogue, a case is made that justice is a kind of social proxy for the cause-effect relation. When in a state of nature, man has no one but himself to rely on in his dealings with nature, which, though cruel, is consistent, driven as she is by inviolable physical laws and which, consequently, always rewards an action with an equal and opposite reaction. But human beings are emotional and therefore mercurial creatures, and when avails himself of their assistance, they may decide not to honor their commitments to him. The interrelations of the members of a given society are just to the extent that its members fulfill their mutual obligations as consistently as nature follows her own laws, and those interrelations are unjust to the extent that they don’t.

    Must the gospel message include a call for people to repent of their sins? “No,” say Free Grace advocates. Is evidence of a changed life an important indication of whether a person is truly born again? “No, again,” these advocates say. But in this book, Wayne Grudem shows how the Bible answers “Yes” to both of these questions, arguing that the Free Grace movement contradicts both historic Protestant teaching and the New Testament itself. This important book explains the true nature of the Christian gospel and answers the question asked by so many people: “How can I know that I’m saved?”

    This is a quote from Shakespeare’s Richard II that refers to the interrelatedness of early Quakers, who only married within the faith. In this fascinating book, he tells of his Quaker family, stretching back to the very beginning of the Society over 350 years ago. The story starts with George Fox’s right- hand man, James Lancaster, whose Bible is still in the family possession, and which still bears the water stains from when James was fleeing persecution across Morecambe Bay and it was dropped in the sea in 1661. This passed to his daughter Dinah, who married John Nicholson, who came from an old seafaring family from Whitehaven. Their great Granddaughter was Eliza Nicholson, who married Professor John Barlow, the eminent Veterinary scholar at Edinburgh University. Their son was the renowned Quaker peace worker, John Henry Barlow, the pre-eminent Quaker Statesman of his generation, as The Times obituary wrote. The book also tells of other well-known Quaker names, including the author’s cousins from the Carr, Taylor and Cadbury families; his great, great Grandfather, Samuel Bowly, fierce anti-slavery campaigner with Wilberforce, as well as eccentrics such as John Neild, who donated all his money to Queen Victoria which enabled her to buy Balmoral! Quaker historian Ben Pink Dandelion says in his Foreword “This book is a treasure trove of family and wider Quaker social history….we should be very grateful for Antony’s work and the affirmation it brings of a Quaker way of life and a Quaker set of values that continue to offer so many of us strength and hope.” Quaker authority Edward Milligan writes: “This book provides glimpses of national Quaker preoccupations during the last four centuries, and deserves a wide readership.” Richenda Elton Lady-in-Waiting to Her Majesty The Queen: “Her Majesty was interested to learn of your family connection with John Neild who left a considerable part of his estate to Queen Victoria and is most grateful for a copy of your

    Updated with a conclusion by the author that features new, independent corroboration of Frank Sheeran's revelations about the killing of Jimmy Hoffa, the killing of Joey Gallo and the murder of JFK, along with stories that could not be told before.Plans have been announced to turn "I Heard You Paint Houses" into a major motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese. The working title for the movie is "The Irishman". The first words Jimmy Hoffa ever spoke to Frank "the Irishman" Sheeran were, "I heard you paint houses." To paint a house is to kill a man. The paint is the blood that splatters on the walls and floors. In the course of nearly five years of recorded interviews Frank Sheeran confessed to Charles Brandt that he handled more than twenty-five hits for the mob, and for his friend Hoffa.  Sheeran learned to kill in the U.S. Army, where he saw an astonishing 411 days of active combat duty in Italy during World War II. After returning home he became a hustler and hit man, working for legendary crime boss Russell Bufalino. Eventually he would rise to a position of such prominence that in a RICO suit then-U.S. Attorney Rudy Giuliani would name him as one of only two non-Italians on a list of 26 top mob figures.  When Bufalino ordered Sheeran to kill Hoffa, he did the deed, knowing that if he had refused he would have been killed himself.  Sheeran's important and fascinating story includes new information on other famous murders including those of Joey Gallo and JFK, and provides rare insight to a chapter in American history. Charles Brandt has written a page-turner that has become a true crime classic.

    “A #GIRLBOSS is in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it.” The first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasn’t fashion—it was a stolen book. She spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and dumpster diving. By twenty-two, she had resigned herself to employment but was still broke, directionless, and working a mediocre day job she’d taken for the health insurance. It was there that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Eight years later, she is the founder, CEO, and creative director of Nasty Gal, a $100 million plus online fashion retailer with more than 350 employees. Sophia’s never been a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she’s written #GIRLBOSS for outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is winding as all hell and lined with naysayers. #GIRLBOSS includes Sophia’s story yet is infinitely bigger than Sophia. It’s deeply personal yet universal. Filled with brazen wake-up calls (“You are not a special snowflake”), cunning and frank observations (“Failure is your invention”), and behind-the-scenes stories from Nasty Gal’s meteoric rise, #GIRLBOSS covers a lot of ground. It proves that being successful isn’t about how popular you were in high school or where you went to college (if you went to college). Rather, success is about trusting your instincts and following your gut, knowing which rules to follow and which to break. A #GIRLBOSS takes her life seriously without taking herself too seriously. She takes chances and takes responsibility on her own terms. She knows when to throw punches and when to roll with them, when to button up and when to let her freak flag fly. As Sophia writes, “I have three pieces of advice I want you to remember: Don’t ever grow up. Don’t become a bore. Don’t let The Man get to you. OK? Cool. Then let’s do this.”

    If Generation Next is supposed to question everything and trust no one, where does faith fit in? Consumers demand that their food be pesticide free, their cosmetics and shampoo be paraben-free, and that everything possible from clothes to toilet paper be made without additives or chemicals. But there's nothing that has more additives to the original product than Christianity. How do we get back to the 100% organic version of Jesus?

    We all love the benefits of technology and social media, but even with the incredible upsides, many of us suspect there are unintended negative consequences that are beyond our control. We’ve lost perspective, even perhaps ourselves. In this relevant and life-changing new book, New York Times bestselling author and pastor of LifeChurch.tv Craig Groeschel encourages readers who are hungry to regain control over their lives and put Christ first again. He walks them though biblical values that all Christ followers know are essential, but are even more important for the maxed out, selfie-centered world we live in. The more you compare, the less satisfied you are. The more we interact online, the more we crave face to face intimacy, but the harder it is to have. The more filtered our lives become, the harder it is to be authentic. The more information about the pain in the world we’re exposed to the more difficult it is to care. It’s time to refresh and rediscover our understanding for today’s world the biblical principles that life with Christ brings: contentment, intimacy, authenticity, compassion, rest and more. Groeschel taps some of the most up to date studies on the effects of social media on our emotions and our friendships, and shows us through real-life illustrations how we struggle and how we can overcome our struggles with Jesus’ life-changing gospel message. With helpful appendices like the 10 Commandments of Using Social Media to Strengthen Your Faith, a challenge to go on Technology Fasts, and Creating Safeguards for Your #Struggles, you’ll find #Struggles to be just the guide to bring balance and real-life engagement to your everyday living.

    Imagine an everyday world in which the price of gasoline (and oil) continues to go up, and up, and up. Think about the immediate impact that would have on our lives.Of course, everybody already knows how about gasoline has affected our driving habits. People can't wait to junk their gas-guzzling SUVs for a new Prius. But there are more, not-so-obvious changes on the horizon that Chris Steiner tracks brilliantly in this provocative work.Consider the following societal changes: people who own homes in far-off suburbs will soon realize that there's no longer any market for their houses (reason: nobody wants to live too far away because it's too expensive to commute to work). Telecommuting will begin to expand rapidly. Trains will become the mode of national transportation (as it used to be) as the price of flying becomes prohibitive. Families will begin to migrate southward as the price of heating northern homes in the winter is too pricey. Cheap everyday items that are comprised of plastic will go away because of the rising price to produce them (plastic is derived from oil). And this is just the beginning of a huge and overwhelming domino effect that our way of life will undergo in the years to come.Steiner, an engineer by training before turning to journalism, sees how this simple but constant rise in oil and gas prices will totally re-structure our lifestyle. But what may be surprising to readers is that all of these changes may not be negative - but actually will usher in some new and very promising aspects of our society. Steiner will probe how the liberation of technology and innovation, triggered by climbing gas prices, will change our lives. The book may start as an alarmist's exercise.... but don't be misled. The future will be exhilarating.

    Many people are both alarmed and confused by what they've heard about the $700 billion bailout. They're worried about their savings, their jobs, and their homes. This audiobook provides an understandable analysis on how the bailout bill impacts you, and offers "to do" or "not to do" steps for you to follow. It is a must have for all investors. Bestselling author Paul Muolo has been reporting and writing on the mortgage crisis for some two decades and brings his seasoned and skeptical approach to his work. He has access to the key players in the banking, mortgage and Washington world, often breaking "scoops" before other journalists. Here, Muolo offers an unbiased view on how Wall Street got mixed up in the world of mortgages, and unravels what was going on behind the scenes in the housing and mortgage industry for much of the past decade. In his analysis of the controversial Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, Muolo explains in easy to understand language what the bailout bill means for individuals and answers these questions: –What does the bill say, exactly? –Who is making decisions about how the $700 billion will be spent, and what does it mean now that the government is investing directly in our banks? –Who's footing the bill? –What is the impact on homeowners, businesses, retirement, and taxes –Where do I put my money in the meantime? Muolo shows both the challenges and opportunities of the credit crisis and proposed bailout, including its impact on: –Mortgages: While rates may be lower, there will be more fees. Lenders will be more cautious in lending, and people who cannot meet their mortgages are likely to lose these homes. This may create "contrarian" plays in foreclosures and vacation homes. –Stocks and Other Investments: Is now the time to get into the stock market or is it safer to stick with CDs, bonds, and gold? –Taxes: With the tax breaks, there will be less tax revenue leading to a huge shortfall to the government over the next few years. Muolo offers insight into these areas and many others, including how the structure of the bailout bill allows for unprecedented authority that has altered the financial landscape, perhaps permanently. Whether the plan will work, and how we can prevent this from happening again remains to be seen, but with $700 Billion Bailout Paul Muolo gives us a critical tool for deciphering perhaps the most sweeping piece of legislation since the Patriot Act.

    Frank McCourt's glorious childhood memoir, Angela's Ashes, has been loved and celebrated by listeners everywhere for its spirit, its wit and its profound humanity. A tale of redemption, in which storytelling itself is the source of salvation, it won the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. Rarely has a book so swiftly found its place on the literary landscape. And now we have 'Tis, the story of Frank's American journey from impoverished immigrant to brilliant teacher and raconteur. Frank lands in New York at nineteen, in the company of a priest he meets on the boat. He gets a job at the Biltmore Hotel, where he immediately encounters the vivid hierarchies of this "classless country," and then is drafted into the army and is sent to Germany to train dogs and type reports. It is Frank's incomparable voice -- his uncanny humor and his astonishing ear for dialogue -- that renders these experiences spellbinding. When Frank returns to America in 1953, he works on the docks, always resisting what everyone tells him, that men and women who have dreamed and toiled for years to get to America should "stick to their own kind" once they arrive. Somehow, Frank knows that he should be getting an education, and though he left school at fourteen, he talks his way into New York University. There, he falls in love with the quintessential Yankee, long-legged and blond, and tries to live his dream. But it is not until he starts to teach -- and to write -- that Frank finds his place in the world. The same vulnerable but invincible spirit that captured the hearts of listeners in Angela's Ashes comes of age. Frank McCourt's 'Tis is one of the most eagerly-awaited audiobooks of our time, and it is a masterpiece.

    “My work is to create companies and build them,” writes Sam Wyly in this candid, engrossing memoir, which reveals how he established and expanded companies on the leading edge of advancements in technology, energy, retail, and investments over the last forty-five years. Wyly shares the process, relationships, struggles, and strategies that have made him one of the one thousand wealthiest people in the world. From the hardships his parents faced trying to hold on to the family cotton farm during the Depression to the coaching he received on the high school football field, this self-made billionaire describes how his early years in Louisiana prepared him for what lay ahead. His sales experience with IBM and Honeywell in Dallas in the early 1960s gave him the idea to start the first “computer utility.” Risking $1,000 of his savings, he founded University Computing in 1963 and took it public two years later, becoming a millionaire at the age of thirty. Part autobiography and part inspirational business guide, this audio is full of refreshing insights about what it takes to create, grow, and build successful companies.
