Soon to be the Netflix Limited Series Unbelievable, starring Toni Collette, Merritt Wever, and Kaitlyn Dever * Two Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists tell the riveting true crime story of a teenager charged with lying about having been raped--and the detectives who followed a winding path to arrive at the truth. "Gripping . . . [with a] John Grisham-worthy twist."--Emily Bazelon, New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice) On August 11, 2008, eighteen-year-old Marie reported that a masked man broke into her apartment near Seattle, Washington, and raped her. Within days police and even those closest to Marie became suspicious of her story. The police swiftly pivoted and began investigating Marie. Confronted with inconsistencies in her story and the doubts of others, Marie broke down and said her story was a lie--a bid for attention. Police charged Marie with false reporting, and she was branded a liar. More than two years later, Colorado detective Stacy Galbraith was assigned to investigate a case of sexual assault. Describing the crime to her husband that night, Galbraith learned that the case bore an eerie resemblance to a rape that had taken place months earlier in a nearby town. She joined forces with the detective on that case, Edna Hendershot, and the two soon discovered they were dealing with a serial rapist: a man who photographed his victims, threatening to release the images online, and whose calculated steps to erase all physical evidence suggested he might be a soldier or a cop. Through meticulous police work the detectives would eventually connect the rapist to other attacks in Colorado--and beyond. Based on investigative files and extensive interviews with the principals, Unbelievable is a serpentine tale of doubt, lies, and a hunt for justice, unveiling the disturbing truth of how sexual assault is investigated today--and the long history of skepticism toward rape victims.

Taught to Believe the Unbelievable tells the story of how Sister Jane Kelly contested Church leaders' efforts to shield the sexual and fiscal misconduct of its priests. Rather than collude in the cover-up, she went to the press, at great risk to her reputation and her relationship to the Church she had served for fifty-five years. When newspaper headlines at last broke the news, Sister Jane's role in her community was changed forever. Sister Jane's courageous actions, recounted here, reveal how this crisis of faith ultimately became an opportunity to revitalize the Church's most fundamental spiritual teachings. In Taught to Believe the Unbelievable, her amazing story reminds every reader, regardless of their faith, that the call of one's own heart and conscience supersedes all externally imposed authority.

No one likes to be told they are wrong; but is that any reason not to listen? Seeking to burst the 'Christian bubble' that many believers find comfort in, Justin Brierley began to invite atheists, sceptics and non-believers onto Premier Christian Radio to unpack and understand the so-called 'unbelievables' of the Christian faith. Now, over ten years later, Premier's Unbelievable? podcast continues to captivate hundreds of thousands of listeners and has even spawned its own annual conference. But how has ten years in the atheist-argument-firing-line affected the presenter's faith? Taking the best from conversations with Richard Dawkins and many more, Unbelievable? the book, will invite readers to look behind the scenes at how ten years of talking with atheists, sceptics and non-believers has stirred, shaken but ultimately strengthened Justin's own belief in the not-so-unbelievable Christian faith. Suggested contents: Bursting the Christian bubble God: The best explanation for human existence God: The best explanation for human value God: The best explanation for human purpose When the internet tells you Jesus didn't exist A few facts that only fit the resurrection Making sense of suffering What about the other religions?

Christians face a tough task. In a world without consensus, all truth claims are regarded dubiously. The Gospel does not change, but what aspects should be highlighted in our rapidly changing culture? How do we speak into the culture, instead of just mirroring that culture? Malcolm Duncan constructs his case around the core statements of the Apostles' Creed. If we believe in as God as Creator, what does that mean about our treatment of His creation? If we accept Christ as Saviour and Lord, in what sense are we rescued, redeemed, remade? If we accept the Holy Spirit as Guide, where are we going and what are we here for? We face an unbelievable task: playing our part in the world's regeneration. But God has confidence in us. If we can be confident of what He has done for us, then we can also be confident of what He wants to do through us.

Aly Carset has no life. She goes to school, does her chores, and dreams of college while watching almost every movie ever produced. But all of that changes when a supposed meteorite crashes near her middle-of-nowhere town and, in seemingly unrelated news, a new kid pops up in school the following week. His name is Io, and he’s kind of weird. Following is a friendship with the resident high school weird girl, obstruction of (legal) justice, assault of federal officers, blood, tampering with evidence, chest X-rays, kangaroo rats, irreparable destruction of government property, a broken nose and associated bruising, breaking and entering, a young closet Nazi named Owen, formaldehyde, threat of detainment without cause, hijacking of one flying saucer, minor electrocution, dudes in camo, a Taser gun, and a hammer named Rodrigo. (Not necessarily in that order.) Okay, so that’s not true. It’s a spaceship, not a flying saucer.
