God and Mammon: Chronicles of American Money Audiobook

God and Mammon: Chronicles of American Money

Author: Lance Morrow Narrator: Tom Parks Release Date: October 2020

This book is about the partnership of God and Mammon in the New World-about how Americans have made money and lost money, and about how they have thought about that obsessive and peculiarly American subject. Money is the basic American thing, the life's blood of the country. God and Mammon shows how the dynamics of money in its many dimensions (material, spiritual, cultural, psychological) worked to make America what it is. It traces the grand American binaries of success and failure to their theological origins in Calvinism's anxieties about salvation and damnation.

Healing Resistance: A Radically Different Response to Harm Audiobook

Healing Resistance: A Radically Different Response to Harm

Author: Kazu Haga Narrator: Tom Parks Release Date: October 2020

Activists and change agents, restorative justice practitioners, faith leaders, and anybody engaged in social progress and shifting society will find this mindful approach to nonviolent action indispensable. Nonviolence was once considered the highest form of activism and radical change. And yet its basic truth, its restorative power, has been forgotten. In Healing Resistance, leading trainer Kazu Haga blazingly reclaims the energy and assertiveness of nonviolent practice and shows that a principled approach to nonviolence is the way to transform not only unjust systems but broken relationships. With over twenty years of experience practicing and teaching Kingian Nonviolence, Haga offers us a practical approach to societal conflict first begun by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the Civil Rights Movement, which has been developed into a fully workable, step-by-step training and deeply transformative philosophy (as utilized by the Women's March and Black Lives Matter movements). Kingian Nonviolence takes on the timely issues of endless protest and activist burnout, and presents tried-and-tested strategies for staying resilient, creating equity, and restoring peace.

Author: Uri Adoni Narrator: Tom Parks Release Date: September 2020

THE BOLD SECRET TO SUCCESSFUL STARTUPS Veteran venture capitalist Uri Adoni shares the secrets to Israel's incredible track record of success in this new guide that will help make any startup unstoppable. More than half of all startups fail-often during the crucial early stages of development when they need to prove their viability on a limited budget. But when it comes to startup success, one country stands out: Israel. Even though it is a relatively small country with a population of just over 9 million inhabitants, Israel has one of the highest concentrations of startups in the world, has the highest venture capital per capita, is one of the top countries in terms of number of companies listed on NASDAQ, and is well recognized as a global leader in research and development. In The Unstoppable Startup, Uri Adoni goes behind the scenes to explain the principles and practices that can make any startup, anywhere in the world, become an unstoppable one. Packed with insider accounts from leaders who have realized bold visions, The Unstoppable Startup distills Israeli chutzpah into six operational rules that will help you to: - Build an unstoppable team; - Foresee the future and innovate to meet its demands; - Manage your funding and partnerships through all phases of growth; - Dominate the market category you are after or create a new one; - Build and manage an early stage investment vehicle; and - Build and grow a healthy high-tech ecosystem. Far from mere conjecture, Adoni implemented these practices throughout his more than 12 years as a venture capitalist for one of Israel's most successful venture funds, and he continues to utilize these same proven startup strategies today in metropolitan areas in the US.

The Mind of a Conservative Woman: Seeking the Best for Family and Country

Reject our society's liberal bias against conservative women and learn how traditional principles will secure a better future for us all with this inspiring guide from a political powerhouse. The Mind of a Conservative Woman challenges women to improve their place in life and open doors for themselves and the next generation through the courage of their convictions. Senator Blackburn expounds upon why beliefs labeled as 'traditional' have common ground and can improve all of society, such as: - Protecting the next generation, the family, and the freedom of faith and values, - Supporting a free market that rewards women who apply their talents and rise to great heights, - Respecting the institutions in our nation to make change from the inside, - Securing an effective government that will not overreach, and - Honoring and respecting those who hold differing opinions. Though it is politically liberal women who receive the attention of left-leaning media and universities, it is conservatism that guarantees what most women hold dear. Blackburn addresses the frustrations of working women and the false perceptions of women presented by the media in general. Her maxim 'Leave Things in Better Shape Than You Found Them' will challenge you to improve your place in life and create opportunities you never dreamed possible for yourself and those around you.

In today's world, it's becoming tougher to live an unswerving Christian life. In fact, in Dare to Live Greatly, L. C.

Misreading Scripture with Individualist Eyes: Patronage, Honor, and Shame in the Biblical World Audiobook

Misreading Scripture with Individualist Eyes: Patronage, Honor, and Shame in the Biblical World

Author: E Randolph Richards, Richard James Narrator: Tom Parks Release Date: September 2020

The Bible was written within collectivist cultures. When Westerners, immersed in individualism, read the Bible, it's easy to misinterpret important elements-or miss them altogether. In any culture, the most important things usually go without being said. So to read Scripture well we benefit when we uncover the unspoken social structures and values of its world. We need to recalibrate our vision. Combining the expertise of a biblical scholar and a missionary practitioner, Misreading Scripture with Individualist Eyes is an essential guidebook to the cultural background of the Bible and how it should inform our reading. E. Randolph Richards and Richard James explore deep social structures of the ancient Mediterranean-kinship, patronage, and brokerage-along with their key social tools-honor, shame, and boundaries-that the biblical authors lived in and lie below the surface of each text. From Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar to Peter's instructions to elders, the authors strip away individualist assumptions and bring the world of the biblical writers to life. Expanding on the popular Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes, this book makes clear how understanding collectivism will help us better understand the Bible, which in turn will help us live more faithfully in an increasingly globalized world.
