    Winston Churchill is perhaps the most important political figure of the 20th century. His great oratory and leadership during the Second World War were only part of his huge breadth of experience and achievement. Studying his life is a fascinating way to imbibe the history of his era and gain insight into key events that have shaped our time.

    Story

    Riveting. Revealing. The pathway to greatness is through adversity. Being a child of privilege is not necessarily a road to an easy life. Churchill almost never had it easy and there is so much to learn from his endurance and faithfulness.

    This second volume in William Manchester's three-volume biography of Winston Churchill challenges the assumption that Churchill's finest hour was as a wartime leader. During the years 1932-1940, he was tested as few men are. Pursued by creditors (at one point he had to put up his home for sale), he remained solvent only by writing an extraordinary number of books and magazine articles.

    Story

    Churchill once said, "When the eagles stop talking, the parrots begin to jabber." He kept talking even when drowned out by the parrots and cowards of his day until eventually he was ALONE as the sole voice of wisdom and action. Copiously detailed. Integrally insightful. A political masterpiece.

    Nearly 2,000 years ago, Jesus started a movement that has grown like wildfire throughout the past 20 centuries. Author and pastor Andy Stanley brings to life from Scripture and over 25 years of pastoral experience the irresistible nature of this movement known as the Church. Stanley identifies some of the key decisions and strategies that helped the church begin by the power of the Holy Spirit many centuries ago and continues to flourish today.

    Andy Stanley lets us see behind the scenes what happens when you try to do great things for God. He talks with candor about the hard stuff as well as the good stuff. And he does so in a manner that is easy to understand in a challenging and engaging. One of the finest books on church life and development that I know of written with candor and refreshing honesty.

  • Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman

    The best-selling author of Into the Wild, Into Thin Air, and Under the Banner of Heaven delivers a stunning, eloquent account of a remarkable young man's haunting journey. Like the men whose epic stories Jon Krakauer has told in his previous bestsellers, Pat Tillman was an irrepressible individualist and iconoclast. In May 2002, Tillman walked away from his $3.6 million NFL contract to enlist in the United States Army.

    Jesus' impact on our world is highly unlikely, widely inescapable, largely unknown, and decidedly double-edged. It is unlikely in light of the severe limitations of his earthly life; it is inescapable because of the range of impact; it is unknown because history doesn't connect dots; and it is doubled-edged because his followers have wreaked so much havoc, often in his name. He is history's most familiar figure, yet he is the man no one knows. His impact on the world is immense and non-accidental.

    Story

    Art, architecture, philosophy, language, government, influence, the elevation of children and women. Jesus life changed the world in EVERY way. The only thing I wish could be different would be if John Ortberg would read it himself. However, the person selected to read it was as close to JO as could be possible. Listen to this and it will change your view of the one who changed the world forever.

    Of all our great presidents, Theodore Roosevelt is the only one whose greatness increased out of office. When he toured Europe in 1910 as plain “Colonel Roosevelt,” he was hailed as the most famous man in the world. Crowned heads vied to put him up in their palaces. “If I see another king,” he joked, “I think I shall bite him.”

    Story

    Edmund Morris is a gift and offered us a gift in this treasured series. Theodore Roosevelt is arguably the architect of modern America and the consummate Profile In Courage. His life is also illustrative that we all live an immutable law of sowing and reaping in both good and hard ways. Roosevelt was bold and his boldness was rewarded. But Teddy was also a warrior and one of the greatest ironies of his life is that his youngest son, Quentin, was soon killed in the war that Roosevelt pushed then President Woodrow Wilson to fight. Read ALL 3 of Morris works.

    Profound. Powerful. Real. I love it when an author reads their own work. Having heard Margaret live, it is inspiring to hear her present with inflections in her voice at the points where and how she intended in her writing. I found myself hungering and thirsting for God and identifying with what she said. Let her read this to you and your soul will leap, stir, and reflect.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.
