    As part of a three-book series, this title touches on two concerns in our countries that are closer to us than we think: domestic violence and suicide. The stats don’t lie. Reports of domestic violence are ever-increasing. Some are puzzled by these numbers. They don’t always know what can be considered real violence and what is just exaggeration. Others become victims of uncontrolled tempers, addicts, and cheaters and are scarred for life. How can we recognize it and stop it? That’s the question we’ll address here.

A number one best seller before there even was such a thing, the Bible has long been the most purchased book in history. The problem is, however, that most people haven't actually read the book, and those who have don't really understand a very fundamental fact about the Bible. That fact being that the Bible is in all honesty, simply a very bad work of fiction.
