Focus and determination are the subjects of this 1921 parable about a 'never-say-die' salesman who is given a challenge and gets it done. The premise of being tested by a strict boss and succeeding may seem outdated. But by applying the timeless lessons in this parable, employees at all levels will learn to rekindle the go-getter in themselves.

The book tries to clear the notion that to interpret the Islamic concept of woman as, degradation of woman is to distort the actual issue. Islam has never asserted that woman is inferior to man: it has only made the point that woman is differently constituted. The prophet used a parable to explain the delicacy of women s nature, pointing out that they should be treated in accordance with their nature. Their delicate emotional constitution should always be borne in mind.

A terrifying psychological trip into the life of one Joseph K., an ordinary man who wakes up one day to find himself accused of a crime he did not commit, a crime whose nature is never revealed to him. Once arrested, he is released, but must report to court on a regular basis--an event that proves maddening, as nothing is ever resolved. As he grows more uncertain of his fate, his personal life--including work at a bank and his relations with his landlady and a young woman who lives next door--becomes increasingly unpredictable. As K. tries to gain control, he succeeds only in accelerating his

The chasm between the biblical vision of marriage and the common human conception is—and has always been—gargantuan. Reflecting on over forty years of matrimony, John Piper exalts the biblical meaning of marriage over its emotion, exhorting couples to keep their covenant as a display of Christ’s covenant-keeping love for the church. He aims to lift the church’s low view of marriage to something infinitely greater, namely, a vision of Jesus’s unswerving allegiance to and affection for his bride. This Momentary Marriage unpacks the biblical vision, its unexpected co

From the cofounder of Working Assets comes a visionary plan to upgrade capitalism. PETER BARNES is a businessman in a quandary. He's a firm believer in free markets, but he's also convinced that our current version of resource-depleting, pollution-spewing capitalism is pushing nature ever closer to collapse -- and generating a gaping divide between rich and poor that increasingly defies all conceptions of fairness. Yet Barnes is no fan of government either. It's too susceptible to corporate pressure to be effective, he argues, and besides, do we really want politicians setting prices?
