    There are 1,000 prophecies in the Bible, so it's natural to wonder: Have any prophecies been fulfilled? Do they really explain the future? Can we really know what will happen at the end of time? With succinct and clear answers to the most frequently asked questions, David Jeremiah decodes and clarifies prophecy for the average person.

  • Weapons of Mass Instruction: A Schoolteacher's Journey Through the Dark World of Compulsory Schooling

    John Taylor Gatto's Weapons of Mass Instruction focuses on mechanisms of traditional education which cripple imagination, discourage critical thinking, and create a false view of learning as a byproduct of rote-memorization drills. Gatto's earlier book, Dumbing Us Down, introduced the now-famous expression of the title into the common vernacular. Weapons of Mass Instruction adds another chilling metaphor to the brief against conventional schooling.

    This book does a great job of presenting an alternative view of our education system. The author causes the listener really think about what they learned or did not learn in school.

    If you have ever wondered why education does not improve considering all the money the government throws at it....this book is for you.

    Is it possible that there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future? That this mystery lies behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy? That ancient harbingers of judgment are now manifesting in America? That God is sending America a prophetic message of what is yet to come? Before its end as a nation, there appeared in ancient Israel nine specific warnings and omens of national destruction - these same Nine Harbingers are now manifesting in America with profound ramifications.

    Story

    Although I don't buy the "official" story of 9/11 this book connects the dots in an amazing fashion. As a Pastor I've always believed that the OT is a reflection of what is going on in America today. This book perfectly follows my line of thought.
    Jonathan Cahn does an incredible job of narrating his book and keeping the listener/reader's attention the entire time. This is one of my favorite books! Easily worth 2 credits! I highly recommend it to Christians and Non-Christians that are looking for some explanation of what is going on in America.

    Darwin's theory of evolution is accepted by most educated Americans as simple fact. This easy acceptance, however, hides from us the many ways in which evolution - as an idea - shapes our thinking about a great many things. What if this idea is wrong? What if "evolution" is just a word that covers up scientific ignorance of how the wonders of the living world could have been created? Berkeley law professor Phillip Johnson looks at the evidence for Darwinistic evolution the way a lawyer would - with a cold dispassionate eye for logic and proof.

    The author did a great job of not bashing Darwin but at the same time exposing the problems and bias when it comes to dealing with evolution. For those that don't just accept things the way they are presented but like to ask questions.
    If you are interested in hearing a different point of view this book is for you.

    George Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police - a world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live tepid lives by rote. Winston Smith, a hero with no heroic qualities, longs only for truth and decency. But living in a social system in which privacy does not exist and where those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death, he knows there is no hope for him.

    It’s amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times best-selling author Edward Klein in his political exposé The Amateur. Tapping into the public’s growing sentiment that President Obama is in over his head, The Amateur argues that Obama’s toxic combination of incompetence and arrogance has run our nation and his presidency off the rails.

    Thank God there is finally someone that will tell the truth about obama. I'm so sick of the lapdog media begging at the table of obama and spinning his crap in a positive direction.

    Both the author and narrator did a masterful job of presenting the information. The book delves deep into the ego and arrogance of the illegitimate presidunt. I will be listening to this book at least 2 or 3 times!

    I highly recommend this book to every American!

    Leading evangelist Billy Graham has written an inspiring and thought-provoking work based on his personal quest to understand the most mysterious and difficult aspect of the Trinity. After a discussion with a noted Swiss theologian, Dr. Graham began a study of the Bible to see what is said about the Holy Spirit. As he progressed through his examination, he became concerned by the “misunderstanding and even ignorance in some Christian circles concerning the Third Person of the Trinity.”

    Alan says: "Simply a wonderful and educational book."

    Billy Graham does a masterful job of teaching on a subject that can bring so much controversy in the body of Christ. He does a great job of sharing his point of view with enough information for the listener to go and research for him/her self.
    Also a great starting point for new Christians or Christians that are just beginning to learn about the Holy Spirit.

    In his giant New York Times best seller, America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It, Mark Steyn predicted collapse for the rest of the Western World. Now, he adds, America has caught up with Europe on the great rush to self-destruction. What will a world without American leadership look like? It won’t be pretty—not for you and not for your children. America’s decline won’t be gradual, like an aging Europe sipping espresso at a café until extinction. No, America’s decline will be a wrenching affair marked by violence and possibly secession.

    You can believe the Bible. Without any doubt. As American society becomes more secularized, Christians need to know all the facts about the Bible. Dr. Grant R. Jeffrey has spent decades researching history, science, archaeology, medicine, and prophecy - finding that each discipline confirms the truth of Scripture.

    This book does a great job showing the proof of the Bible from within the Bible and also from "extra" biblical sources. For those that may be on the fence.....this may be a book that can open your eyes to the Bible and prayerfully salvation, and a relationship with Jesus Christ.
