According to ancient prophetic books followed by over half the world's population, the greatest threat to mankind is not global warming...it's the Day of Reckoning. How extreme believers of different persuasions respond is need-to-know intelligence in the new security landscape. Cassy Kim is being set up as a new kind of espionage device: brilliant analyst, emotionally compromised by the artful leader of a mystical Muslim sect obsessed with divine judgment. But while her background makes her a perfect post-modern spy, her handlers have underestimated her ability to pursue her own agenda. She needs redemption from her own unknown past. What Cassy Kim discovers in Noah's Art will get you talking. Listen to the first controversial novel in the Noah Brotherhood Trilogy: a trilogy about a shadowy Sufi sect tracked for over half a century and known only for the Jekyll-and-Hyde traces of virtue and violence that it leaves; that and its obsession with the first great judgment - Noah's flood - and the second great judgment to come. 1.

Karl Taro Greenfeld knew from an early age that his little brother, Noah, was not like other children.

A challenging, often painful experience that their father detailed in a bestselling trilogy of books. Boy Alone is Karl Taro Greenfeld's unforgettable memoir of growing up in Noah's shadow, revealing the complex mix of rage, confusion, and love that defined the author's childhood?

Marking a significant departure from Noah Cicero's fictional and poetic works, Blood-Soaked Buddha/Hard Earth Pascal is a lucid philosophical treatise. Rather than entertain dogma, Cicero approaches a discussion of Buddhism from the refreshing perspective of the everyman, providing a profound spiritual analysis as well as a sharp critique of capitalism. There are even some pretty good ghost stories. "Buddhism isn't for scholars and priests and masters. It's not a religion. It's for anyone who wants to find a better way. It's practical, it's logical, it's sensible and it's real. Just like this book." "Far too many books about Buddhism get bogged down in scholarly doublespeak. Others are full of far-fetched fantasies. Noah's book isn't like that. It's a real book for real people." (Brad Warner, author of Hardcore Zen) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sara L. Morsey.

The story of Noah is one of the most captivating in all the Bible. Yet most people remember it mainly as a children's story found in picture books and heard in Sunday school classes. But this tragedy really took place - and widely overlooked is Jesus' stunning prophecy that the final days of planet Earth would be just as it was in the days of Noah. His point? That there would be striking parallels between Noah's day and the end times - with warnings of God's imminent judgment upon the world. Is Jesus' prophecy now being fulfilled? And if yes, how then should we respond? As It Was in the Days of Noah explores the similarities between the two periods, such as the rapid rise in evil and increasingly flagrant disregard for God. A powerful resource that... Examines the signs that we're nearing the end-time Affirms the urgency of reaching the lost with God's compassion and truth Equips you to live wisely and "redeem the time" so it counts for eternity 1.

If you search for the word "coffee" in the Bible, if you're pretty sure that all the pairs of animals in Noah's Ark were married, and if you think tuna hotdish is okay but fishsticks are a little too ecumenical, you'll find humor in Growing Up Lutheran. If the Lutherans you know seem rather, er, mysterious, it will do you good. Combining their own memories with those of other Lutherans who grew up in the 1940s through the 1960s, co-authors Janet Martin and Suzann Nelson have created a delightful portrait of life as a Lutheran, from the moment of baptism ("And His Name Shall Be Called Gilman Einar Stedje") until death ("He Is Not Gone, He Is Only Away"). In between, you'll get the inside scoop on the Lutheran Church Basement Women, Lutefisk suppers, pew protocol, Haybelly Hanson's views on clapping in church, and much more. Martin and Nelson are two 100 percent Norwegian Lutheran Farm Girls who have taken their religion on the road. The Minnesota residents have written six books together and are in demand as humorists, speaking together and individually in church basements, at country fairs, synod retreats, etc. They are also having hot flashes and documenting these experiences. 1.

For the past three decades, America has steadily become a nation of haves and have-nots. Our incomes are increasingly unequal. This steady growing apart is often mentioned as a troubling indicator by scholars and policy analysts, though seldom addressed by politicians. What economics Nobelist Paul Krugman terms "the Great Divergence" has till now been treated as little more than a talking point, a rhetorical club to be wielded in ideological battles. But this Great Divergence may be the most important change in this country during our lifetimes - a drastic, elemental change in the character of American society, and not at all for the better. The inequality gap is much more than a left-right hot potato - its causes and consequences call for a patient, non-partisan exploration. Timothy Noah's The Great Divergence, based on his award-winning series of articles for Slate, surveys the roots of the wealth gap, drawing on the best thinking of contemporary economists and political scientists. Noah also explores potential solutions to the problem, and explores why the growing rich-poor divide has sparked remarkably little public anger, in contrast to social unrest that prevailed before the New Deal. The Great Divergence was one of the most talked-about books of 2012, a jump-start to the national conversation about the shape of American society in the 21st century, and a work that will help frame the debate in a Presidential election year. 1.
