Books Description:

The sordid, #1 New York Times bestselling true crime story of adultery, addiction, gambling debt, and murder in a privileged suburban town—from author and journalist Joe McGinniss. The Marshalls were the model family of Tom’s River, New Jersey, living the American dream and seemingly in possession of all that money could buy. Rob Marshall, a successful insurance broker, was the big breadwinner, king of the country club set. Maria Marshall was his stunningly beautiful wife and the perfect mom to their three great kids. Then one night while the couple drove home from Atlantic City, Rob, his head bloodied, reported Maria had been brutally slain. Sympathy poured in—until disquieting facts began to surface…and the true story of adultery, gambling, drugs and murder tore the mask off Rob Marshall and the blinders off the town that thought he could do no wrong.

Books Description:

Imagine a world where everyone knows everything about everybody. Where 'sharing' is valued above all, and privacy is considered a dangerous perversion. Trafford wouldn't call himself a rebel, but he's daring to be different, to stand out from the crowd. In his own small ways, he wants to push against the system. But in this world, uniformity is everything. And even tiny defiances won't go unnoticed. Ben Elton's dark, savagely comic novel imagines a post-apocalyptic society where religious intolerance combines with a sex-obsessed, utterly egocentric culture. In this world, nakedness is modesty, independent thought subversive, and ignorance is wisdom. A chilling vision of what's to come? Or something rather closer to home?

Pharmacists who refuse to fill prescriptions for contraceptives. Surgeons who pray in the OR. Pro-life clinics and end-of-life interventions, intelligent-design activists and stem-cell-research opponents. Is this the state of modern medicine in America? In Blind Faith, Dr. Richard P. Sloan examines the fragile balance and dangerous alliance between religion and medicine—two practices that have grown disconcertingly close during the twenty-first century. While Sloan does not dispute the fact that religion can bring a sense of comfort in times of difficulty, he nevertheless believes, and in fact proves, that there is no compelling evidence that faith provides an actual cure for any ailment. By exposing the flawed research, Sloan gives readers the tools to understand when good medical science is subverted and, at the same time, provides a thought-provoking examination into the origins and varieties of faith, and human nature itself.

The risk of investing in the stock market has increased remarkably over the last decade.

Corporate America and the investment industry have little to gain and lots to lose when investors decide to stop playing the traditional game that can -and has - destroyed trillions of dollars of individual wealth overnight. Readers will be equipped with both the strategy and the tools for success in virtually any economic environment while ending their participation in a system that has taken full advantage of their blind faith and misplaced trust.

Books Description:

For thousands of years, philosophers have been struggling to prove God. To modern atheists, these are monumental failures. Atheism, then, is the rational position. Or is it? By combining the most sophisticated philosophies (falsification, scientific method, confirmation holism) with the most advanced sciences (quantum, relativity, evolution theories), "Confessions Of A Dying Mind" takes a fresh look at this oldest and profoundest anxiety of man. Uniquely, the book is a novelized nonfiction - indeed, "the first philosophical novel on God". The story is set in the near-death experience of the atheistic protagonist, Albert Dyers. Its central plot proceeds as an adventurous investigation, argument after argument ... till a certain conclusion becomes inescapable. "Confessions" is laced with novel ideas found nowhere else. It is narrated in a highly readable language for all educated laypersons to comprehend with relative ease. The book is therefore a must-read for theists, atheists, and everyone else interested in exploring the relationship of God and science, in light of leading developments.

Books Description:

Blind Faith is the story of blind pastor, public speaker, and singer Matthew Vollbrecht (the author). Though not a complete autobiography, it chronicles in depth, many of the challenges, struggles, and choices he has faced. Issues including his blindness, losing his job, and almost losing his life as well as many more are discussed. Yet, the greatest issue he must face is his own demons — his fears, his outlook, and the perception of his worthiness. In every trial, Matthew knows that he has been given a choice of how to deal with whatever is before him. Only he can make the decisions, and those decisions will have powerful and potentially long-lasting outcomes — anything from complete happiness and victory to tragic loss. Matthew provides insight into his life, his marriage, his friendships, and many other relationships — especially his relationship with God, and how these influences help him to fight the inner and sometimes outward battles that must be fought in order to achieve complete victory.

In this book, Casper Rigsby addresses the doctrine of Christianity known as the bible, and dives head long into the insanity within that text. The book will introduce the non-Christian to some of the most irrational and illogical ideas within the Christian doctrine and will remind the progressive or moderate Christian of just how insane the bible is. It will also present the notion that by wearing the label of Christian they are signing a metaphorical terms of service agreement that says that they agree with all the insanity presented there by proxy, and will hopefully leave the reader questioning why anyone would believe any of this nonsense. Lastly, this title will ask the reader to take off the blinders of faith, even if only for a minute, and take an objective look at the insanity within the bible.

Books Description:

Blind Faith: How Christianity abandoned God, Part One – the Trinity doctrine, is the first book in a three-part series focused on exposing age-old spiritual beliefs that have been proven to be false. The trinity doctrine is arguably the most accepted, if not a fundamental belief in Christianity today. It’s the belief that claims God is made up of three distinct persons all unique but yet one. The focus of blind faith is to prove to you that the trinity doctrine is a false belief that was concocted and voted on by the 4th century CE, Roman appointed Ecumenical Bishops, who then went on to mislead the whole church into believing in a false god and have done so until this day. The only reason this doctrine is still viewed as truth is because of sixteen centuries of indoctrination, control and monopoly of the church when in fact there is no evidence anywhere in history, or in the Bible to support the existence of such a god (a triune god). If this doctrine is false then its goes without saying that the core or the foundation of what Christians believe today about who God is, is equally false. In other words, Christianity today is based on a lie and the 2.2 billion Christians around the world are following a lie. A lie if brought to light would shake the very foundations of Christianity as we know it.

Books Description:

In this fascinating volume, Osho reclaims astrology from the pop psychologists and “fortune tellers” and shares the deep insights that first brought this unique science of the stars into being. From ancient India to the lost civilization of Sumeria, from Pythagoras to Paracelsus to Piccardi, we discover that for thousands of years there has been a thread of awareness of how all things in the universe are interconnected – an awareness that modern physics is still struggling to define in scientific terms today. As Osho says: The universe is a living body, an organic unity. In it, nothing is isolated, all is connected. Whatever is far away is connected to that which is near; nothing is separate. So no one should remain in the fallacy that he is an island: isolated, separate, aloof. Everything is connected to the whole, and everything is all the time affecting others and being affected by others. Astrology aficionados and skeptics alike will find something in this small volume to provoke a new way of looking at what really “makes the world go round.”

Books Description:

When “post modernism” seems to be dominant world view; when interest in traditional religion is falling off; when far too many Adventist youth are simply walking away; what could possibly be wrong with getting people excited about “spirituality”? We can never say we weren’t warned. In 1903, Ellen White wrote an urgent letter about the “Alpha of Apostasy” and rushed it to the mail. Twenty-five hundred miles later, it arrived just in time to head off disaster—temporarily at least. She wrote of a dream in the night, a ship in the fog, and iceberg in the way. The vessel was damaged, but it survived the encounter because the Captain’s command was obeyed. Adventism survived her crisis, too, though at the cost of her right arm and the imposition of “the worst evil.” Yet, she assured us that the story wasn’t over. “The omega would follow in a little while. I trembled for our people.” Ellen G. White For nearly a century, the idea that the Seventh-day Adventist Church would ever again be troubled and tempted by pantheism strained credulity. It seemed absurd, unbelievable, ridiculous. Nevertheless, the Lord said another test was coming.
