In Nothing to Fear, Larry Burkett tells his personal journey of a seven-year battle with cancer. Filled with intimate stories and wisdom from the Word, this book will be a great help to the thousands of people who fight this disease, or to friends and loved ones of those in the midst of the struggle. Larry's 2003 passing was the result of heart failure rather than cancer. His legacy continues today and his words still bring hope to those in need of encouragement. "Even if you can avoid dying from cancer, you'll certainly face something else that will eventually kill you, because all of us are going to die. As god as modern medicine is, it is not the ultimate answer. It will let you down. Trusting God is the answer. He will never let you down."--Larry Burkett

My book is an autobiography about surviving cancer, three times, over the course of sixteen years. As the author of the book, I describe the trials and tribulations of having cancer, and how I fought the battle with the help of my family and friends. The book is not all gloom and doom; it is humorous, as well. Some of the events help to keep it upbeat and positive. The book's ending is inspirational because of its Rocky/Karate Kid ending. I am confident that anyone who reads this story and has cancer, or is close to someone that has cancer, will find that the story will help him/her through the turmoil, in a positive way.
How I evolved from cancer patient to cancer survivor is the crux of my book. I decided not to take my diagnosis as a death sentence, but instead, as a bridge to a new way of life. I set positive goals for myself and created a healthy environment for my body and mind to thrive in. While convalescing, for many months at home, I became a certified personal trainer, and have dedicated myself to showing others how to do the same. I began a cancer survivors training class, and help people from age 30 to 74 reprogram their minds for success. My amazing life and battle with this insidious disease set me on a path of healing that I have been called to share with others. The culmination of this book is a personal triumph that all who struggle with illness will be able to relate to. The reading audience will find that its emotions run the gamut of happiness, sorrow, horror and amazement, while living my life with me.

An unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University

Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.

“Beautiful and propulsive . . . Despite the singularity of [Tara Westover’s] childhood, the questions her book poses are universal: How much of ourselves should we give to those we love? And how much must we betray them to grow up?”—Vogue

“Westover has somehow managed not only to capture her unsurpassably exceptional upbringing, but to make her current situation seem not so exceptional at all, and resonant for many others.”—The New York Times Book Review

A Lifetime Approach to Spending, Saving, and Investing


Now in paperback!
? Can we ever afford to buy a house?
? Is it wrong to borrow this much money?
? Which of us should be the record keeper?
? Are credit cards a no-no?
? Do we really need life insurance?
? Why is it we never seem to have enough?

Questions like these can keep you awake at night- or worse. Without a solid financial and spiritual foundation on which to base sound decisions, problems-and not just money problems-tend to multiply in a marriage. And they come whether you're struggling on $20,000 a year or "coasting" on a six-figure income.

Whether you are about to marry or are still in marriage's early years, best-selling author Larry Burkett can steer you around the pitfalls that result from mishandling your money. In this valuable guide he will help you:

? Establish a workable budget
? Discover what kind of insurance you need and how much
? Teach your children about finances
? Diagnose economic danger signs in your marriage
? Explore different types of investments and decide which are best for you and much, much more.

Solid biblical direction, practical advice, and years of "field-testing" make this a book that won't gather dust on your shelf!

The late Larry Burkett was founder and president of Christian Financial Concepts in Gainesville, Georgia, a nonprofit organization that specializes in teaching Christians biblical principles for managing money.

Now available as an eBook for the very first time! • ONE OF TIME’S TEN MOST IMPORTANT NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
 
In the searing pages of this classic autobiography, originally published in 1964, Malcolm X, the Muslim leader, firebrand, and anti-integrationist, tells the extraordinary story of his life and the growth of the Black Muslim movement. His fascinating perspective on the lies and limitations of the American Dream, and the inherent racism in a society that denies its nonwhite citizens the opportunity to dream, gives extraordinary insight into the most urgent issues of our own time. The Autobiography of Malcolm X stands as the definitive statement of a movement and a man whose work was never completed but whose message is timeless. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand America.
 
Praise for The Autobiography of Malcolm X
 
“Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will.”—Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father

“Extraordinary . . . a brilliant, painful, important book.”—The New York Times
 
“A great book . . . Its dead level honesty, its passion, its exalted purpose, will make it stand as a monument to the most painful truth.”—The Nation
 
“The most important book I’ll ever read, it changed the way I thought, it changed the way I acted. It has given me courage I didn’t know I had inside me. I’m one of hundreds of thousands whose lives were changed for the better.”—Spike Lee
 
“This book will have a permanent place in the literature of the Afro-American struggle.”—I. F. Stone
