What is the nature of reality? At the root of our society's deepest political and cultural divisions are the conflicting principles of four global worldviews. While each of us holds to some version of one of these worldviews, we are often unconscious of their differences as well as their underlying assumptions. Mary Poplin argues that the ultimate test of a worldview, philosophy or ideology is whether it corresponds with reality. Since different perspectives conflict with each other, how do we make sense of the differences? And if a worldview system accurately reflects reality, what implications does that have for our thinking and living? In this wide-ranging and perceptive study, Poplin examines four major worldviews: naturalism, humanism, pantheism and Judeo-Christian theism. She explores the fundamental assumptions of each, pressing for limitations. Ultimately she puts each perspective to the test, asking, what if this worldview is true? If reality is secular, that means something for how we orient our lives. But if reality is not best explained by secular perspectives, that would mean something quite different. Consider for yourself what is the fundamental substance of reality.

Eighteen years after the genocide that made Rwanda international news, but left it all but abandoned by the West, the country has achieved a miraculous turnaround. Rising out of the complete devastation of a failed state, Rwanda has emerged on the world stage yet again-this time with a unique model for governance and economic development under the leadership of its strong and decisive president, Paul Kagame. Here, Patricia Crisafulli & Andrea Redmond look at Kagame's leadership, his drive for excellence and execution that draws comparisons to an American CEO and emphasizes the development of a sophisticated and competitive workforce that leverages human capital. In Rwanda, the ultimate turnaround, strong and effective leadership has made a measurable and meaningful difference. Rwanda's progress offers an example for other developing nations to lift themselves out of poverty without heavy reliance on foreign aid through decentralization, accountability, self-determination, and self-sufficiency. The authors also explore Rwanda's journey toward its goal of becoming a middle-income nation with a technology-based economy, and its progress to encourage private sector development and foster entrepreneurship, while also making gains in education, healthcare, and food security-and all with a strong underpinning of reconciliation and unification. As so many nations stand on the brink of political and economic revolution, this is a timely and fascinating look at the implications of Rwanda's success for the rest of the continent-and the world.

Find strength in the struggle, passion to persist, wisdom when you're weary, and joy for the journey. If you've ever been on a long trip with small children you've no doubt heard, "Are we there yet?" Maybe you've even said those exact words or felt that same way as you have journeyed with God. Midway is where these feelings of frustration and impatience are most commonly felt. It's also where our hidden doubts find their voice. Where most beginnings start with energy and expectation for all that is ahead, and endings bring the joy of completion as you arrive at your desired destination, the middle is very different. This midpoint can too quickly become a low point, as energy is lacking and enthusiasm wanes. Yet how well you handle the middle reveals what is in the middle of you. The disciples found—in the middle of a lake—a revelation of Jesus that they had never seen on the shore. In the middle is where new navigational skills are found. It's also where some of the most significant lessons are learned. Join Charlotte Gambill in this compelling, story-driven message that shows through biblical teaching and life application how those who persist through the middle will find that miracles await them on the other side.

In the Elk River Story, Rick Heeren, along with leading pulpit and marketplace ministers of Elk River and the surrounding communities, documents the origins and tracks the emergence of a transformational movement. Elk River, Minnesota, with a population of 20,000, has been experiencing the power of God for a few years now. This began when pastors and community leaders first came together to pray, and it took off when they chose to pastor the entire city instead of just their congregations. Later it moved into high gear when the marketplace began to experience transformation, first at City Hall, and then in the schools, the police, and businesses in general.

What happens when three financial industry whiz kids and certified baseball nuts take over an ailing major league franchise and implement the same strategies that fueled their success on Wall Street? In the case of the 2008 Tampa Bay Rays, an American League championship happens—the culmination of one of the greatest turnarounds in baseball history. In The Extra 2%, financial journalist and sportswriter Jonah Keri chronicles the remarkable story of one team’s Cinderella journey from divisional doormat to World Series contender. When former Goldman Sachs colleagues Stuart Sternberg and Matthew Silverman assumed control of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2005, it looked as if they were buying the baseball equivalent of a penny stock. But the incoming regime came armed with a master plan: to leverage their skill at trading, valuation, and management to build a model twenty-first-century franchise that could compete with their bigger, stronger, richer rivals—and prevail. Together with “boy genius” general manager Andrew Friedman, the new Rays owners jettisoned the old ways of doing things, substituting their own innovative ideas about employee development, marketing and public relations, and personnel management. They exorcized the “devil” from the team’s nickname, developed metrics that let them take advantage of undervalued aspects of the game, like defense, and hired a forward-thinking field manager as dedicated to unconventional strategy as they were. By quantifying the game’s intangibles—that extra 2% that separates a winning organization from a losing one—they were able to deliver to Tampa Bay something that Billy Beane’s “Moneyball” had never brought to Oakland: an American League pennant. A book about what happens when you apply your business skills to your life’s passion, The Extra 2% is an informative and entertaining case study for any organization that wants to go from worst to first.

Nearly every household in America was tuned in to the election feeds, and every update pointed to a loss for the Republican Party.But when the map of the states flipped red in the final hour, there were a select few who weren't surprised.

When Sports Illustrated declared on the cover of a June 2014 issue that the Houston Astros would win the World Series in 2017, people thought Ben Reiter, the article’s author, was crazy. The Astros were the worst baseball team in half a century, but they were more than just bad. They were an embarrassment, a club that didn’t even appear to be trying to win. The cover story, combined with the specificity of Reiter’s claim, met instant and nearly universal derision. But three years later, the critics were proved improbably, astonishingly wrong. How had Reiter predicted it so accurately? And, more important, how had the Astros pulled off the impossible? Astroball is the inside story of how a gang of outsiders went beyond the stats to find a new way to win—and not just in baseball. When new Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow and his top analyst, the former rocket scientist Sig Mejdal, arrived in Houston in 2011, they had already spent more than half a decade trying to understand how human instinct and expertise could be blended with hard numbers such as on-base percentage and strikeout rate to guide their decision-making. In Houston, they had free rein to remake the club. No longer would scouts, with all their subjective, hard-to-quantify opinions, be forced into opposition with the stats guys. Instead, Luhnow and Sig wanted to correct for the biases inherent in human observation, and then roll their scouts’ critical thoughts into their process. The numbers had value—but so did the gut. The strategy paid off brilliantly, and surprisingly quickly. It pointed the Astros toward key draft picks like Carlos Correa and Alex Bregman; offered a path for developing George Springer, José Altuve, and Dallas Keuchel; and showed them how veterans like Carlos Beltrán and Justin Verlander represented the last piece in the puzzle of fielding a championship team. Sitting at the nexus of sports, business, and innovation—and written with years of access to the team’s stars and executives—Astroball is the story of the next wave of thinking in baseball and beyond, at once a remarkable underdog story and a fascinating look at the cutting edge of evaluating and optimizing human potential.

When her health failed she did what most Christians do; went forward for prayer and began seeing doctors. After 18 months, 11 doctors, and lots of prayer, she was worse, much worse. So she canceled all medical appointments, cried out to God, and was taken on an amazing journey. God helped her understand that it's pointless for Him to heal someone who doesn't know what's making them sick. Today she's well and hasn't been to a mainstream medical doctor for illness since 1989, though she is a grateful benefactor of their surgical skills post-trauma. Even then the knowledge she'd acquired helped her avoid pitfalls and enhance her recovery beyond the limits of mainstream medicine. Health is Wealth Back Cover of Book: In 1986 my seasonal allergies progressed in severity and became year-round while under a specialist's care. After pregnancy in late 1987 premenstrual symptoms were raging 25 days out of each month, including dramatic mood swings, infertility, and severe depression. This too was under the care of three doctors. In 1988 I was diagnosed with Advanced Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease and told by several doctors that my neck would be fused by 1992. Severe digestive issues and recurrent infections also became part of the mystery. I was told I'd need rotator cuff surgery for a shoulder that dislocated often and included severe episodes of bursitis. And in 1989 a diagnosis of Hashimoto's, an autoimmune thyroid disease, was added to the list. I had lots of names for my conditions, dismal predictions, illogical explanations, and no solutions until I canceled all my medical appointments and sought God. About the Author: Today Kathy is well and hasn't been to a mainstream medical doctor for illness since 1989. Kathy Bates is a licensed massage therapist utilizing many tools to bring improved health and appearance to her clients. She lives in Austin, Texas with her Mom, sister and two gorgeous, formerly stray, cats. A second book on reversing chronic pain is in the planning stage. This information became vital after a broken spine and subsequent injury that left her in intense pain for 11 years. Again, she is now well. "I can say with certainty that a timid, compliant person, who needs the approval of others would have failed in this mission. We should thank God for those who question the status quo, those who Steve Jobs says, "push the human race forward." Pam H. "The book is well written, intriguing, informative, comforting, alarming, and important." Kim T.
