Yours in Truth: A Personal Portrait of Ben Bradlee – $1.99 0 comments

“I hope we’re as good friends when you finish your book as we are now,” Ben Bradlee, the legendary former executive editor of The Washington Post, told Jeff Himmelman in March 2010. “But I don’t give a [expletive deleted] what you write about me.”

Dangerous Surrender – What if God’s plan for your life is different from yours? – Just 99 cents 0 comments

You have a plan for the rest of your life. God has a plan for the rest of your life. Are they the same? You have expectations for how your life will play out, and you hope those plans will become realities.
But what if God’s plan for your life is far different from what you had in mind? Can you accept that? Will you surrender your goals for God’s?
Kay Warren had a plan. Together with her husband, Rick Warren, author of the megaseller The Purpose Driven Life, she planned that after her kids were grown, she’d travel the world, teaching and encouraging couples in ministry. It was a good plan. But it wasn’t what God had in mind for her.
In a startling wake-up call, Kay discovered the shocking realities of the AIDS pandemic in Africa while reading a magazine. “I want to use you!” she heard God say. That began the struggle—first to avoid God’s call and then to surrender herself to God.
Kay Warren took that step, choosing to dangerously surrender to God. That decision transformed her life, marriage, and future. She invites you to do the same.

Me the People: One Man’s Selfless Quest to Rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America – $1.99 0 comments

The United States Constitution promised a More Perfect Union. It’s a shame no one bothered to write a more perfect Constitution—one that didn’t trigger more than two centuries of arguments about what the darn thing actually says.
Until now.
Perfection is at hand. A new, improved Constitution is here. And you are holding it.
But first, some historical context: In the eighteenth century, a lawyer named James Madison gathered his friends in Philadelphia and, over four long months, wrote four short pages: the Constitution of the United States of America. Not bad.
So prepare yourselves, fellow patriots, for the most significant literary event of the twenty-first, twentieth, nineteenth, and latter part of the eighteenth centuries. Me the People won’t just form a More Perfect Union. It will save America.
