Repeat - Christian Novel

Faith

Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers

 

Prolific author Copeland (With This Ring, LJ 2/1/98) kicks off another historical Western series with this pleasing tale of mail-order brides set in 1872. When their pastor father dies suddenly, leaving little money, three sisters realize that they need to take drastic action to survive. Each answers a newspaper ad soliciting Christian brides. Faith goes to Texas, where her intended, a well-to-do rancher named Nicholas Shepherd, seems to be having second thoughts. While her wedding is repeatedly postponed, Faith meets a local widower and decides to teach his blind son Braille. In time, Nicholas begins to realize that he may have lost Faith to another man. Although this is not the freshest premise, Copeland endows his characters with enough liveliness to make the book a fun light read. Recommended, especially for Copeland's growing group of fans.

Free Christian Novel

Almost Heaven

Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers

 

2011 ECPA Christian Book Award winner for fiction! 2011 Christy Award Winner for contemporary standalone novel.
Billy Allman is a hillbilly genius. People in Dogwood, West Virginia, say he was born with a second helping of brains and a gift for playing the mandolin but was cut short on social skills. Though he’d gladly give you the shirt off his back, they were right. Billy longs to use his life as an ode to God, a lyrical, beautiful bluegrass song played with a finely tuned heart. So with spare parts from a lifetime of collecting, he builds a radio station in his own home. People in town laugh. But Billy carries a brutal secret that keeps him from significance and purpose. Things always seem to go wrong for him.
However small his life seems, from a different perspective Billy’s song reaches far beyond the hills and hollers he calls home. Malachi is an angel sent to observe Billy. Though it is not his dream assignment, Malachi follows the man and begins to see the bigger picture of how each painful step Billy takes is a note added to a beautiful symphony that will forever change the lives of those who hear it.

Obama: The Greatest President in the History of Everything

Obama: The Greatest President in the History of Everything

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/obama-frank-j-fleming/1106577372?ean=9780062132604

 

It's hard to remember the dark days before 2008. It was a time of hatred, racism, violence, obese children, war, untaxed rich people, and incandescent light bulbs -- perhaps the worst days we had ever seen. And at the heart of it all was a thuggish, thoughtless man, George W. Bush, who lashed out angrily at whatever he didn't understand -- and he understood so very little. Then there was that laugh of his -- that horrible snicker that mocked everything intelligent and nuanced. Also, he looked like a chimp.


It seemed like the end for the United States of America. We would crumble in the hands of vicious, superstitious dimwits determined to hunt "ter'ists" or other figments of Bush's rotten mind. There was nothing left to do but head to Whole Foods to prepare our organic, sustainable, fair-trade last meal as the country ended around us. Despair had overtaken us, and we wondered aloud whether we could ever feel hope again.


And then a man emerged who firmly answered, "Yes we can!"


Oh, but Barack Obama was no mere man. He was a paragon of intelligence and civilized society. A savior to the world's depressed. A lightbringer. A genius thinking thoughts the common man could never hope to comprehend. And his words -- his beautiful words read from crystal panes -- reached down to our souls and told us all would be well. With the simple act of casting a ballot for Barack Obama, we could make the world an immeasurably better place -- a world of peace, of love, of understanding, of unicorns, of rainbows, of expanded entitlements. This was his promise. And now, having had him as president for more than two years, we can say without reservation that he has delivered all his promises and more and is the best president this country -- or any country -- has ever had or could even imagine to have.

Pain is a universal human condition. Suffering is woven into the fabric of our fallen world. No one is immune from pain, no one can escape it. It’s a condition that impacts people, relationships, even entire countries. As a child in a missionary family serving in West Africa and Malawi, Palmer Chinchen witnessed firsthand the devastating effects of civil war, pandemics, and extreme poverty and hunger. And in such moments, it can seem like God is asleep while the world spins out of control. Chinchen believes that while pain may not always make sense, it’s vital that we develop a Christian response to suffering. Drawing from powerful Scripture and his unique world experiences, Chinchen fearlessly tackles the big questions: Where is God when life hurts? When will this pain stop? Why do innocent people suffer? Through Chinchen’s insights that encourage, comfort, and offer hope you’ll be inspired to respond to a hurting world as you connect with the compassionate heart of a God who can’t sleep.

 

 

Why Good People Can't Get Jobs: The Skills Gap and What Companies Can Do About It
by Peter Cappelli

 

Why Good People Can't Get Jobs: The Skills Gap and What Companies Can Do About It

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/why-good-people-cant-get-jobs-peter-cappelli/1110912284?ean=97816136...

Peter Cappelli confronts the myth of the skills gap and provides an actionable path forward to put people back to work.

Even in a time of perilously high unemployment, companies contend that they cannot find the employees they need. Pointing to a skills gap, employers argue applicants are simply not qualified; schools aren't preparing students for jobs; the government isn't letting in enough high-skill immigrants; and even when the match is right, prospective employees won’t accept jobs at the wages offered.

In this powerful and fast-reading book, Peter Cappelli, Wharton management professor and director of Wharton’s Center for Human Resources, debunks the arguments and exposes the real reasons good people can’t get hired. Drawing on jobs data, anecdotes from all sides of the employer-employee divide, and interviews with jobs professionals, he explores the paradoxical forces bearing down on the American workplace and lays out solutions that can help us break through what has become a crippling employer-employee stand-off.

Among the questions he confronts: Is there really a skills gap? To what extent is the hiring process being held hostage by automated software that can crunch thousands of applications an hour? What kind of training could best bridge the gap between employer expectations and applicant realities, and who should foot the bill for it? Are schools really at fault?

Named one of HR Magazine’s Top 20 Most Influential Thinkers of 2011, Cappelli not only changes the way we think about hiring but points the way forward to rev America’s job engine again.

Global Banking 2020: Foresight & Insights (Enhanced Version) 
by Knowledge @ Wharton, Ernst & Young

  • Note: This product may take a few minutes to download.

As we look ahead to 2012, global banks face an array of unprecedented challenges. While the long-term future is cloudy, most experts agree that today's volatile business environment is not just a temporary interruption before a return to business as it used to be. Banks that prove successful over the next decade are likely to look very different from those that flourished prior to the global financial crisis.


What will a prosperous international bank look like in 2020? In order to answer that question, in early 2011 we embarked on a comprehensive, methodical scenario-planning project. The undertaking brought together leaders from Ernst & Young's Global Banking & Capital Markets practice with faculty members from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, along with executives of large banks with global operations. Through a series of discussions led by Decision Strategies International, a firm specializing in scenario planning, the group developed views of four possible and widely varying futures ranging from, in the following order, relatively static to incredibly dynamic: Business as Usual, Financial Issues, New Markets and Change, Change, Change.

 

Global banks face a threatening future. Regulations are getting tougher. Competition from emerging markets and non-banking companies is getting stronger. The need to invest in cutting-edge information technology is growing. And some traditional lines of business are shrinking.


What strategies should executives at global banks use to succeed over the next decade?


To answer that question, Ernst & Young and Knowledge@Wharton undertook a year-long scenario-planning process that identified four possible futures: Business as Usual, Financial Issues, New Markets, and Change, Change, Change. For each scenario, they devised key strategies for banks to undertake now. Global Banking 2020: Foresight & Insights is their report, which includes 17 videos and extensive analysis by Wharton faculty, Ernst & Young executives and high-level participants from major banks.


Top executives at global banks will find a wealth of strategies in this video-enhanced ebook that can be used now to identify opportunity in a quickly changing environment, enabling their firms to emerge from a tumultuous period as winners.

The world's most populous nation and soon-to-be largest economy is rapidly turning into the planet's most efficient assassin. Unscrupulous Chinese entrepreneurs are flooding world markets with lethal products. China's perverse form of capitalism combines illegal mercantilist and protectionist weapons to pick off American industries, job by job. China's emboldened military is racing towards head-on confrontation with the U.S. Meanwhile, America's executives, politicians, and even academics remain silent about the looming threat. Now, best-selling author and noted economist Peter Navarro meticulously exposes every form of "Death by China," drawing on the latest trends and events to show a relationship spiraling out of control.

 

Death by China reveals how thousands of Chinese cyber dissidents are being imprisoned in "Google Gulags"; how Chinese hackers are escalating coordinated cyberattacks on U.S. defense and America's key businesses; how China's undervalued currency is damaging the U.S., Europe, and the global recovery; why American companies are discovering that the risks of operating in China are even worse than they imagined; how China is promoting nuclear proliferation in its pursuit of oil; and how the media distorts the China story--including a "Hall of Shame" of America's worst China apologists.

 

This book doesn't just catalogue China's abuses: It presents a call to action and a survival guide for a critical juncture in America's history--and the world's.

The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow is the story of an unusual woman, Agnes Sparrow. No longer able or willing to leave her home, where she is cared for by her long-suffering sister Griselda, Agnes has committed her life to the one thing she can do—besides eat. Agnes Sparrow prays and when Agnes prays things happen, including major miracles of the cancer, ulcer-healing variety along with various minor miracles not the least of which is the recovery of lost objects and a prize-winning pumpkin.

The rural residents of Bright’s Pond are so enamored with Agnes they plan to have a sign erected on the interstate that reads, “Welcome to Bright’s Pond, Home of Agnes Sparrow.” This is something Agnes doesn’t want and sends Griselda to fight city hall. Griselda’s petitions are shot down and the sign plans press forward until a stranger comes to town looking for his miracle from Agnes. The truth of Agnes’s odd motivation comes out when the town reels after the murder of a beloved community member. How could Agnes allow such evil in their midst? Didn’t she know? Well, the prayers of Agnes Sparrow have more to do with Agnes than God. Agnes has been praying to atone for a sin committed when she was a child. After some tense days, the townsfolk, Griselda, and Agnes decide they all need to find their way back to the true source of the miracles—God.

Graphic designer Natalie Pearce faces the most difficult Christmas of her life. For almost a year, her mother has lain in a nursing home, the victim of a massive stroke, and Natalie blames herself for not being there when it happened. Worse, she’s allowed the monstrous load of guilt to drive a wedge between her and everyone she loves—most of all her husband Daniel. Her marriage is on the verge of dissolving, her prayer life is suffering, and she’s one Christmas away from hitting rock bottom.

Junior-high basketball coach Daniel Pearce is at his wit’s end. Nothing he’s done has been able to break through the wall Natalie has erected between them. And their daughter Lissa’s adolescent rebellion isn’t helping matters. As Daniel’s hope reaches its lowest ebb, he wonders if this Christmas will spell the end of his marriage and the loss of everything he holds dear.
