The Root Of All Evil from the Author: Roberto Costantini. Tripoli, 1960s. During the years in which post-colonial Libya fell prey to the sprawling greed of the West, Michele Balistreri suffered a succession of blows that would scar him for life. The death of his mother; the unspeakable horror that befell his best friend's family; his father's role in Gaddafi's ascent to power; and the innocent blood pact that would corrupt the course of his future. Rome, 1982. In the wake of a ruinous blunder, a ground-down Commissario Balistreri escapes his regrets through sex, alcohol and gambling. His sole responsibilities are now a stilted investigation into the death of a South American student, and a tiresome obligation - as a gratitude to the man who saved his career - to a rising television starlet needing protection from the pitfalls of fame. As the risks to this girl, Claudia Teodori, begin to rise along with her reputation, the sorrows of Balistreri's past also start to push back into his present. Both of their fates are inextricably linked - and this driven, obsessive young woman must help this damaged detective fight a foe that follows her and refuses to forget him.

The God Delusion from the Author: Richard Dawkins. The God Delusion caused a sensation when it was published in 2006. Within weeks it became the most hotly debated topic, with Dawkins himself branded as either saint or sinner for presenting his hard-hitting, impassioned rebuttal of religion of all types. His argument could hardly be more topical. While Europe is becoming increasingly secularized, the rise of religious fundamentalism, whether in the Middle East or Middle America, is dramatically and dangerously dividing opinion around the world. In America, and elsewhere, a vigorous dispute between 'intelligent design' and Darwinism is seriously undermining and restricting the teaching of science. In many countries religious dogma from medieval times still serves to abuse basic human rights such as women's and gay rights. And all from a belief in a God whose existence lacks evidence of any kind. Dawkins attacks God in all his forms. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry and abuses children. The God Delusion is a brilliantly argued, fascinating polemic that will be required reading for anyone interested in this most emotional and important subject.

Generosity from the Author: John D. Garr. Generosity: The Righteous Path to Divine Blessing answers the question of why so many Christians cheat themselves out of God's blessing on their lives by being so stingy with their money? Why is it that the average Christian gives less than 3% of his income to religious and humanitarian causes? Why is it that the average Jewish person gives more than twice as much of his financial increase to charity as the average Christian does? The answers will probably surprise--and may well shock--you! God has set out a righteous path to divine blessing that anyone can walk. This is the narrow way of generosity, the gift of giving that every Christian should manifest continually. It's really quite simple when you choose to do what Jesus said, "Give and you shall receive." Here are some of the challenging and inspiring truths that Generosity: The Righteous Path to Divine Blessing will confirm for you: The Motive for Generosity, The Medium of Generosity, Treasure in the Bank of Heaven, Wealth and the Kingdom of God, Poverty Gospel/Prosperity Gospel, The Blessing of Health and Prosperity. As you read this volume, you will be reconnected with the Hebraic foundations of the Christian faith as they relate to the subjects of money, giving, health, and prosperity. You will be amazed as you discover the secure, balanced positions that God's Word has always taught on these important subjects. Then you will have the freedom to give joyfully and to receive abundantly God's promised provisions of health and prosperity. Get ready for a revolution in your life--and an amazing blessing when you learn to do God's thing God's way.

The Root Of All Evil from the Author: David A. Farrow. A serial killer is terrorizing Charleston. The third young woman, a tourist like the others, has been brutally murdered in her hotel room, the body mutilated. And once again, the killer has removed the victim’s heart. This is the work of someone with an agenda far darker than anything Charleston police detective Harry Holmes has faced before. This killer leaves behind a macabre signature: Entwined in the women’s hair is a strange, scraggly, odd-shaped root. Detective Holmes has no traceable DNA, not even a bloody footprint - only one thing to link the crimes: the murdered women had all taken a tour with Charleston writer and tour guide, Andrew Rutledge. And Rutledge, scion of an old Charleston family, is experiencing bizarre dreams and blackouts. Set against the luxuriant background of historic Charleston’s exceptional beauty and centuries-old customs, The Root of All Evil weaves a haunting and suspenseful tale of the awe-striking power of good and evil. “When darkness stares you right in the eye, all you can do is stare right back.” "David Farrow's novel of Charleston history, mystery and witchcraft kept me wide-eyed and spellbound. It kept me reading late into the night and listening for ghostly footsteps on the stairs." Charles Kuralt "...in the best tradition of Stephen King, Clive Barker and Dean Koontz, the end of the novel is as much a surprise as the beginning." Georgetown Times "There's violence, a little bit of sex, some rough language and a whole lot of Charleston... entreating and engaging..." The State
