Financial crime seems horribly complicated but there are only so many ways you can con someone out of what's theirs. In fact, there are four. A veteran regulatory economist and market analyst, Dan Davies has years of experience picking the bones out of some of the most famous frauds of the modern age. Now he reveals the big picture that emerges from their labyrinths of deceit. Along the way you'll find out how to fake a gold mine with a wedding ring, a file and a shotgun. You'll see how close Charles Ponzi, the king of pyramid schemes, came to acquiring his own private navy. You'll learn how fraud has shaped the entire development of the modern world economy. And you'll discover whether you have what it takes to be a white-collar criminal mastermind, if that's what you want. (Which you don't. You really, really don't.)

From the bestselling author of Tripping the Prom Queen comes a fascinating and provocative look at the reasons behind female deception. Little White Lies, Deep Dark Secrets reveals how society doles out mixed messages to women, fostering the lies they tell. Among the liars are: •A woman who shoplifts, and has it "down to a science" •A woman who tells her husband she is working late in order to be with her lover •A woman who lies about her children's achievements to her friends •A woman who pretends her husband is doing well when they are going broke •A woman who has covered up her husband's emotional abuse for years •A woman whose secret is her misery in being a stay-at-home mom in suburbia •A woman who lies about loving her partner, deciding it's better to stay than be alone •And many other secrets and deceptions Honest and even outrageous, Susan Shapiro Barash is fast becoming the author who explores issues that are important to women—issues that they are loath to talk about . . . until now.

Although evangelicals enjoyed repect and leadership in American society in the decades before the Civil War, their fortunes declined precipitately in the wake of the industrialism, modernism, and secularism of the next half-century. But the 1920s evangelicals felt like an embattled minority within a largely unbelieving culture, and perceived that history was very much out of their control. Frank examines the spiritual significance of these events by placing them against a biblical understanding of the gospel. He sees in the confidence and self congratulation of the turn-of-the-century evangelicals a protrait of the spiritually rich of the Bible who must lose their riches before they can come to know God truly. Harmful uses of the gospel are explored through dispensational premillenialism, the 'victorious life' theology, and the revivalism of Billy Sunday. Altogether, Less Than Conquerors is a call to replace the blurred and self-serving gospel of a besieged subculture with the genuine gospel of Jesus Christ.

Louge’s book, ‘Exposed: Battered Women Shelters’, is a tell-all book of what really happens to the women and children inside these places, revealing nasty secrets: The kidnapped boy the shelter didn’t report to the police; the measles epidemic that went on for over a year without being reported; counselors taking children away from their mothers; aiding and abetting illegal aliens; children living with registered child molesters; discrimination against fathers, illegally taking their children away from them; racist counselors; women and children living amongst cockroaches and mice; fraudulently received government monies; Christian shelter abusing a pregnant woman; lesbians; children sexually abused; drugs; liquor; and much more. The Director of the Deschutes County Victims Assistance Agency severed ties with a battered women shelter, refusing to send women to ... the shelter, stated (paraphrase): “It’s ... actions were not consistent with protecting victims.” Deschutes County Deputy District Attorney Patrick Flaherty stated (paraphrase): “ ... it (battered women shelter) has an irrational anti-law enforcement attitude ... does not cooperate with investigations ... allows women suspected of being abusers into the shelter.“ Steven M. Basile, head of a Fatherhood Coalition chapter stated (paraphrase): “Men have been ... unable to see their children ... because of false claims of abuse.”

Many resources have been written to offer assistance in exploring and understanding the lectionary texts for the purpose of preaching. However, few have sought to provide this kind of preaching commentary on texts that do not follow the lectionary's grouping. For those whose preaching does not customarily follow the lectionary, and for those who depart from the lectionary text during certain periods of the year, little guidance has been offered for how to select, and preach on, important biblical texts. The Ten Commandments: A Preaching Commentary, the first book in The Great Texts series, gives guidance to preachers on preaching about this central part of faith. The principles by which volumes in The Great Texts series have been chosen are primarily two-fold: (1) Thematic: Texts on certain overarching themes or ideas of the Christian faith are brought together; (2) Biblical/traditional: Texts that have long been recognized as belonging together, and as being particularly beneficial to the work of preaching.
