    A story of spiritual awakening, St. Augustine's Confessions is a fascinating look at the life of an eminent Christian thinker. Widely seen as one of the first Western autobiographies ever written, it chronicles the life and religious struggles of Augustine of Hippo, from his days as a self-confessed sinner to his acceptance of Christianity as an older adult. Along the way, he unveils his theological questioning of human existence and the essence and nature of God, while providing influential philosophical arguments on creation and time. Augustine's sincere and inquisitive attitude will inspire any listener, regardless of faith. Translated by R.S. Pine-Coffin

    Lo que comenzó con algunas publicaciones en el perfil público del Facebook, inmediatamente se transformó en un fenómeno que atrajo a millones de seguidores en todo el mundo que solicitaban a Dante que cada viernes escribiera algo referente al amor. Y así se creó una serie de textos que hoy están recopilados en este libro plagado de romanticismo. El amor en los tiempos del Facebook es una crónica desprolija acerca del amor, una compilación de apuntes que surgen del alma, pero que en definitiva provienen del mayor sentimiento que nos regaló nuestro Dios. «Un libro que deberían leer por lo menos una vez mis amigos solteros, los novios, aquellos que solo quieren vivir un buen momento sin comprometerse demasiado, los que tienen el corazón destrozado, los posesivos, los que tienen miedo a confesar sus sentimientos, los casados que sienten que se les enfrió la llama, los que toleran un noviazgo disfuncional, los enamorados no correspondidos, y fundamentalmente, los enamorados del amor». —Recomendación del autor.

    You’re here, but you want to be there. So you spend your life narrowing this divide, and you call this your race, your journey, your path. You live your days tightening your boot straps, wiping the sweat from your brow, chasing undiscovered happiness just around the bend. Higher! Faster! Better! Stronger! And on and on you run. Viral sensation and HGTV.com star Erin Loechner knows about the chase. Before turning 30, she’d built a fan base of one million women worldwide and earned the title “The Nicest Girl Online” as she was praised for her authentic voice and effortless style. The New York Times applauded her, her friends and church admired her, and her husband and baby adored her. She had arrived at the ultimate destination. So why did she feel so lost? In Chasing Slow, Erin turns away from fast and fame and frenzy. Follow along as she blazes the trail toward a new-fashioned lifestyle—one that will refresh your perspective, renew your priorities and shift your focus to the journey that matters most. Through a series of steep climbs—her husband’s brain tumor, bankruptcy, family loss, and public criticism—Erin learns just how much strength it takes to surrender it all, and to veer right into grace. Life’s answers are not always hidden where they seem. It’s time to venture off the beaten path to see that we’ve already been given everything we need. We’ve already arrived. You see? You’ll see.

    On the centenary of the death of Rasputin comes a definitive biography that will dramatically change our understanding of this fascinating figure A hundred years after his murder, Rasputin continues to excite the popular imagination as the personification of evil. Numerous biographies, novels, and films recount his mysterious rise to power as Nicholas and Alexandra’s confidant and the guardian of the sickly heir to the Russian throne. His debauchery and sinister political influence are the stuff of legend, and the downfall of the Romanov dynasty was laid at his feet. But as the prizewinning historian Douglas Smith shows, the true story of Rasputin’s life and death has remained shrouded in myth. A major new work that combines probing scholarship and powerful storytelling, Rasputin separates fact from fiction to reveal the real life of one of history’s most alluring figures. Drawing on a wealth of forgotten documents from archives in seven countries, Smith presents Rasputin in all his complexity—man of God, voice of peace, loyal subject, adulterer, drunkard. Rasputin is not just a definitive biography of an extraordinary and legendary man but a fascinating portrait of the twilight of imperial Russia as it lurched toward catastrophe.

    New York Times best-selling author Ann Voskamp sits at the edge of her life and all of her own unspoken brokenness and asks: What if you really want to live abundantly before it's too late? What do you do if you really want to know abundant wholeness? This is the one begging question that’s behind every single aspect of our lives --- and one that The Broken Way rises up to explore in the most unexpected ways.   This one's for the lovers and the sufferers. For those whose hopes and dreams and love grew so large it broke their willing hearts. This one's for the busted ones who are ready to bust free, the ones ready to break molds, break chains, break measuring sticks, and break all this bad brokenness with an unlikely good brokenness.  You could be one of the Beloved who is broken --- and still lets yourself be loved.  You could be one of them, one who believes freedom can be found not only beyond the fear and pain, but actually  within it. You could discover and trust this broken way --- the way to not be afraid of broken things.

    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The extraordinary story of the World War II air, land, and sea campaign that brought the U.S. Navy to the apex of its strength and marked the rise of the United States as a global superpower One of America’s preeminent military historians, James D. Hornfischer has written his most expansive and ambitious book to date. Drawing on new primary sources and personal accounts by Americans and Japanese alike, here is a thrilling narrative of the climactic end stage of the Pacific War, focusing on the U.S. invasion of the Mariana Islands in June 1944 and the momentous events that it triggered. With its thunderous assault into Japan’s inner defensive perimeter, America crossed the threshold of total war. From the seaborne invasion of Saipan to the stunning aerial battles of the Great Marianas Turkey Shoot, to the largest banzai attack of the war and the strategic bombing effort that led to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Marianas became the fulcrum of the drive to compel Tokyo to surrender—with consequences that forever changed modern war. These unprecedented operations saw the first large-scale use of Navy Underwater Demolition Teams; a revolution in the fleet’s ability to sustain cross-hemispheric expeditionary warfare; the struggle of American troops facing not only a suicidal enemy garrison but desperate Japanese civilians; and the rise of the U.S. Navy as the greatest of grand fleets. From the Marianas, B-29 Superfortresses would finally unleash nuclear fire on an enemy resolved to fight to the end. Hornfischer casts this clash of nations and cultures with cinematic scope and penetrating insight, focusing closely on the people who rose to the challenge under fire: Raymond Spruance, the brilliant, coolly calculating commander of the Fifth Fleet; Kelly Turner, whose amphibious forces delivered Marine General Holland “Howlin’ Mad” Smith’s troops to the beaches of Saipan and Tinian; Draper Kauffman, founder of the Navy unit that predated today’s SEALs; Paul Tibbets, who created history’s first atomic striking force and flew the Enola Gay to Hiroshima; and Japanese warriors and civilians who saw the specter of defeat as the ultimate test of the spirit. From the seas of the Central Pacific to the shores of Japan itself, The Fleet at Flood Tide is a stirring and deeply humane account of World War II’s world-changing finale.Praise for The Fleet at Flood Tide“An impressively lucid account . . . Mr. Hornfischer crisply and satisfyingly sketches all these figures, and his big Iliad contains a hundred smaller ones, as he propels his complex story forward with supple transitions that never leave the reader behind in the details.”—The Wall Street Journal “The Fleet at Flood Tide is a masterful, fresh account of the latter days of the war in the Pacific that ably expands on the prior offerings of such classic naval historians as Samuel Eliot Morison.”—The Dallas Morning News “Hornfischer places the campaign, wonderfully depicted as all his naval histories are, within U.S. strategic goals in the Pacific, especially the need for bases for B-29 bombers. Also noteworthy and welcome: the attention Hornfischer pays to the logistics challenges of the long-distance Pacific war.”—Foreign Policy“Hornfischer has done it again! . . . No matter how many histories of the Western Pacific campaigns one has read, this one should not be missed.”—Rear Adm. W. J. Holland, Jr., USN (ret.), Pull Together: Newsletter of the Naval Historical Foundation

    From master storyteller and historian H. W. Brands, twice a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, comes the riveting story of how President Harry Truman and General Douglas MacArthur squared off to decide America’s future in the aftermath of World War II. At the height of the Korean War, President Harry S. Truman committed a gaffe that sent shock waves around the world. When asked by a reporter about the possible use of atomic weapons in response to China’s entry into the war, Truman replied testily, “The military commander in the field will have charge of the use of the weapons, as he always has.” This suggested that General Douglas MacArthur, the willful, fearless, and highly decorated commander of the American and UN forces, had his finger on the nuclear trigger. A correction quickly followed, but the damage was done; two visions for America’s path forward were clearly in opposition, and one man would have to make way. Truman was one of the most unpopular presidents in American history. Heir to a struggling economy, a ruined Europe, and increasing tension with the Soviet Union, on no issue was the path ahead clear and easy. General MacArthur, by contrast, was incredibly popular, as untouchable as any officer has ever been in America. The lessons he drew from World War II were absolute: appeasement leads to disaster and a showdown with the communists was inevitable—the sooner the better. In the nuclear era, when the Soviets, too, had the bomb, the specter of a catastrophic third World War lurked menacingly close on the horizon. The contest of wills between these two titanic characters unfolds against the turbulent backdrop of a faraway war and terrors conjured at home by Joseph McCarthy. From the drama of Stalin’s blockade of West Berlin to the daring landing of MacArthur’s forces at Inchon to the shocking entrance of China into the war, The General vs. the President vividly evokes the making of a new American era.

    Happy is good. Holy is better. Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply.  What if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy? Sacred Marriage doesn't just offer techniques to make a marriage happier. It does contain practical tools, but what married Christians most need is help in becoming holier husbands and wives. Sacred Marriage offers that help with insights from Scripture, church history, time tested wisdom from Christian classics, and examples from today's marriages. Sacred Marriage reveals how marriage trains us to love God and others well, how it exposes sin and makes us more aware of God's presence, how good marriages foster good prayer, how married sex feeds the spiritual life, and more. The revised edition of Sacred Marriage takes into account the ways men's and women's roles have expanded since the book was first written. It has been streamlined to be a faster read without losing the depth that so many readers have valued. Sacred Marriage uncovers the mystery of God’s overarching purpose. This book may very well alter profoundly the contours of your marriage. It will most certainly change you. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God, and to a spiritual integrity that, like salt, seasons the world around you with the savor of Christ.

    From Jeffrey Toobin, the bestselling author whose book The Run of His Life inspired the FX drama The People vs. O.J. Simpson, comes a rollicking account of the kidnapping and trial that defined an insane era in American history On February 4, 1974, Patty Hearst, a sophomore in college and heir to the Hearst family fortune, was kidnapped by a ragtag group of self-styled revolutionaries calling itself the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA). The already sensational story took the first of many incredible twists on April 3, when Hearst released a tape saying she had joined the SLA and had adopted the name “Tania.” The many weird turns of the tale are truly incredible—the Hearst family trying to secure Patty’s release by feeding all the people of Oakland and San Francisco for free; the videotape capturing “Tania” wielding a machine gun during a bank robbery; a cast of characters including everyone from Jim Jones to the Black Panthers to Ronald Reagan to F. Lee Bailey; the largest police shoot-out in American history; the first breaking news event to be broadcast live on all television stations across the country; Patty’s year on the lam, running from authorities; and her circus-like trial, after which the phrase “Stockholm syndrome” entered the lexicon. The saga of Patty Hearst defined a decade in which America seemed to be suffering a collective nervous breakdown. Based on more than a hundred interviews and thousands of previously secret documents, American Heiress thrillingly recounts the insanity of the times (there were an average of 1,500 terrorist bombings a year in the early 1970s). Toobin portrays the lunacy of the half-baked radicals of the SLA and the toxic mix of sex, politics, and violence that swept up Patricia Hearst and recreates her melodramatic trial. American Heiress examines the life of a young woman who suffered an unimaginable trauma and then made the startling decision to join her captors’ crusade. Or did she?

    Anne Graham Lotz is a bestselling author, sought after speaker, and “the best preacher in the family” according to her father, Billy Graham, and she uses the prayer of Daniel, a prayer that did move Heaven and change a nation, to communicate that this should be a pattern for our prayers today. As the 2014 Honorary Chair of the National Day of Prayer—the largest National Day of Prayer in the history of this movement—and the host of two online prayer initiatives that attracted over 170,000 subscribers, bestselling author Anne Graham Lotz knows from personal experience that she, like millions of others, needs help in prayer. When she lacks words, she turns to Scripture and uses the words or patterns found in the prayers of others. One prayer she has turned to multiple times is one that the prophet Daniel prayed long ago. This book, based on Daniel’s prayer in Daniel 9, helps readers to pray effectively for God’s people, for their families, and for their nation. Anne deals with three components of effective prayer: preparing for prayer, pleading in prayer, and prevailing in prayer. The Daniel Prayer answers questions, such as the following: • Why should I pray?• Does it matter where I am when I pray?• Are words in prayer all that matter, or does my attitude affect prayer?• What difference does my prayer make?

    Tired of inauthentic prattle, CEO and president of Concerned Women for America Penny Young Nance is ready to change the way women today engage the culture. In her debut title, Feisty & Feminine, she takes an honest and transparent look at what it means to be a conservative Christian woman with thoughtful commentary on the real issues confronting American women. “Conservative women have never fit neatly into stereotypes, especially conservative Christian women,” says Penny Young Nance. “We’re not the humorless, dim-witted ‘church ladies’ Saturday Night Live has made us out to be. Today’s conservative women are intelligent, well-educated, compassionate, accomplished, funny, and fearless—and it’s time for us to stand up and be heard. In fact, we have an opportunity like never before to offer words of redemption to a world gone mad.” From Miley Cyrus to campus feminists, it’s clear that women are still searching for their voice in culture today. With Hillary Clinton running for president in 2016, there is even more of a need for a compelling, conservative, and credible female influence in the mix. Penny Nance is that woman. She is direct without being disrespectful, winsome but not shallow, and relevant while still holding to faith and conservative values. Accepting the baton of leadership from their foremothers, today’s conservatives have emerged as intelligent, hard-working women of faith who not only deal with issues like life and marriage, but are also advocates for the free market, for rights of conscience, and for female victims of radical Islam. Passionate about their role in society, they refuse to turn a blind eye to the sexual exploitation of women or the hypocrisy surrounding women’s issues.  The time is right for this book—and for conservative women everywhere to be part of the conversation.

    En este libro, don Miguel Ruiz describe el viaje espiritual más profundo de su vida. Ese viaje es en realidad un vistazo a la vida de don Miguel, un profundo encuentro místico con las personas, las circunstancias y las ideas que lo hicieron quien es, tal como él lo experimentó en un sueño durante las nueve semanas que duró el coma en el que estuvo tras un ataque al corazón que sufrió en febrero de 2002. La narración a través de la cual imparte sabiduría sobre lo material y lo inmaterial está revestida de fantasía descriptiva. Asimismo, el lenguaje es rico en alegorías y simbología de las cosas que se valoran y que nos aferran a la vida y a otros. Esta obra es lo que él ha denominado su legado, el compendio de las experiencias de su vida y la sabiduría que ha adquirido, pues, como él dice, «un legado es todo lo que somos, la totalidad de nosotros mismos». «A aquellos que deseen aprender de mis palabras, les ofrezco las experiencias de mi vida», dice don Miguel. «Escuchen, vean, atrévanse a cambiar su propio mundo, un mundo hecho de pensamientos y de respuestas automáticas. Permitan que los acontecimientos de mi vida les inspiren nuevas percepciones sobre su propio sueño y sus desafíos actuales», desafía a los lectores.

    The purpose of studying the Old Testament is to understand God and his redemptive work more fully. However, this goal is complicated by the fact that it was transmitted through a very different language and culture from our own. A Survey of the Old Testament provides an indispensable guide for undergraduate students and other readers by exploring the literary, historical, and theological issues behind the Old Testament and its various books. For each Old Testament book, the Survey addresses background information, purpose, message, structure, and major themes. Chapters introducing each major section of the Old Testament are included, as are chapters dealing with issues of interpretation, geography, archaeology, history, formation of the Old Testament canon, and the Old Testament’s relationship to the New Testament. The text is enhanced throughout by maps, photos, timelines, and charts. This full-color third edition of a widely acclaimed textbook has been expanded and redesigned in both text and graphical elements, making it even more beneficial.
