Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: BONUS: This edition contains excerpts from Bing West's The Strongest Tribe and The March Up. "This is the face of war as only those who have fought it can describe it."–Senator John McCain Fallujah: Iraq’s most dangerous city unexpectedly emerged as the major battleground of the Iraqi insurgency. For twenty months, one American battalion after another tried to quell the violence, culminating in a bloody, full-scale assault. Victory came at a terrible price: 151 Americans and thousands of Iraqis were left dead. The epic battle for Fallujah revealed the startling connections between policy and combat that are a part of the new reality of war. The Marines had planned to slip into Fallujah “as soft as fog.” But after four American contractors were brutally murdered, President Bush ordered an attack on the city–against the advice of the Marines. The assault sparked a political firestorm, and the Marines were forced to withdraw amid controversy and confusion–only to be ordered a second time to take a city that had become an inferno of hate and the lair of the archterrorist al-Zarqawi. Based on months spent with the battalions in Fallujah and hundreds of interviews at every level–senior policymakers, negotiators, generals, and soldiers and Marines on the front lines–No True Glory is a testament to the bravery of the American soldier and a cautionary tale about the complex–and often costly–interconnected roles of policy, politics, and battle in the twenty-first century. NOTE: This version does not include the photo insert.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Born Françoise d'Aubigné, a criminal's daughter reduced to street begging as a child, Madame de Maintenon (1653-1719) made an improbable rise from impoverished beginnings to the summit of power as the second, secret wife of Louis XIV. An educational reformer, Maintenon founded and directed the celebrated academy for aristocratic women at Saint-Cyr. This volume presents the dialogues and addresses in which Maintenon explains her controversial philosophy of education for women. Denounced by her contemporaries as a political schemer and religious fanatic, Maintenon has long been criticized as an opponent of gender equality. The writings in this volume faithfully reflect Maintenon's respect for social hierarchy and her stoic call for women to accept the duties of their state in life. But the writings also echo Maintenon's more feminist concerns: the need to redefine the virtues in the light of women's experience, the importance of naming the constraints on women's freedom, and the urgent need to remedy the scandalous neglect of the education of women. In her writings as well as in her own model school at Saint-Cyr, Maintenon embodies the demand for educational reform as the key to the empowerment of women at the dawn of modernity.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Scandal, corruption, and deceit are all taking place within the house of God. Much to our dismay, the church is undeniably guilty of falling away from its original purpose. We need the breath of God to breathe life back into the body of the church. In order to help revive it, we need pastors who have the heart of God, who will not flinch when the world tries to impose itself on the church, and who will do church the way God intended and not bow to the ideology, concepts, or influence of the world. Power or Performance highlights many controversial subjects that the church has chosen to ignore or disregard. The church has a central figure in the person of Jesus Christ, a governing authority in the deity of God, and a book of canonized scripture called the Bible. The church cannot take it upon herself to make up the rules as she goes. Author Cedric R. Spearmon explores topics that expose the unethical behavior, corruption, deceit, and egregious acts perpetrated by those who call themselves Christians. He then exhorts the church to take a hard look in the mirror, examine, and return to the form God ordered and intended. Offering a call to action, this study calls attention to problems within the Christian church and exhorts the body of Christ to awaken to its sense of spiritual responsibility.

Book excerpt: Rev. Cripe gives an interpretation of Romans which rises from the orthodox precept that revelation, not reason, is the test of truth. He sees faith, not intellect, as the link between man and God; the Word of God as the medium of communication, and the Holy Ghost as the Communicator. In his comprehensive commentary, Rev. Cripe disdains the intimidation of modem religious tradition and humanism. His commitment to the text and the context is immediately apparent to those who, like the Bereans, read with all readiness of mind and let the Scriptures distinguish the true from the false. With the clear, clarion voice of a prophet, Rev. Cripe incorporates independent and original thought with orthodox doctrinal disciplines that brush aside the stifling and misleading errors of rationalism. The childlike simplicity of the explanations in this book brings the mighty and timeless riches of Romans back into the reach of sincere Christians who seek the reality and vitality of the victorious Christian life evidenced by the Apostles and the Church of the first century. "The Epistle to the Romans furnishes us with the foundation stones of the Gospel," he says. Not Ashamed of the Gospel puts those foundation stones into their proper place.

Book excerpt: “A superb book—an American equivalent to John Keegan’s The Face of Battle. I sincerely believe that Grunts is destined to be a classic.”—Dave Grossman, Author of On Killing and On Combat From the acclaimed author of The Dead and Those About to Die comes a sweeping narrative of six decades of combat, and an eye-opening account of the evolution of the American infantry. From the beaches of Normandy and the South Pacific Islands to the deserts of the Middle East, the American soldier has been the most indispensable—and most overlooked—factor in wartime victory. In Grunts, renowned historian John C. McManus examines ten critical battles—from Hitler’s massive assault on U.S. soldiers at the Battle of the Bulge to counterinsurgency combat in Iraq—where the skills and courage of American troops proved the crucial difference between victory and defeat. Based on years of research and interviews with veterans, this powerful history reveals the ugly face of war in a way few books have, and demonstrates the fundamental, and too often forgotten, importance of the human element in serving and protecting the nation.

Summary Book Review The Confessions of St. Augustine :

Download or read book The Confessions of St. Augustine written by St. Augustine and published by BoD - Books on Demand. This book was released on 2022-04-25 with total page 168 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: More than an autobiography, The Confessions of St. Augustine is one of the most influential religious books in the Christian tradition. A great work of Western literature, it recalls crucial events and episodes in the author's life, in particular, life with his devoutly Christian mother and his origins in rural Algeria in the mid-fourth century A.D.; the rise to a lavish life at the imperial court in Milan; his struggle with sexual desires; eventual renunciation of secular ambitions and marriage; and recovery of his Catholic faith. This intensely personal narrative -- among the first in which self-analysis was used to describe spiritual and emotional experiences -- provides a detailed, classic recounting of one man's internal struggles and religious conversion. The book will be useful to anyone interested in the impact made by one of the foremost leaders in the development of Christian thought. In his Confessions, Saint Augustine reflects upon his life in the light of scripture and the presence of God. He begins with his infancy, pondering the many sins of his life before his conversion, and he confesses not only his sins but even more the greatness of God. This work presents a wonderful contrast between the Holy God who created all things and whom heaven and earth cannot contain, and a commonly sinful man who has joyfully received God's loving salvation and mercy. Many scholars consider Saint Augustine to be among the greatest and most influential fathers of the early church. And as you read his Confessions, you will find the confident humility that is common among those whom Jesus calls "great in the kingdom of heaven." Augustine writes as a common man, and so his words span time and tradition. May his Confessions guide you to the One whom he confesses.
