Along with Why I Am Not a Christian, this essay must rank as the most articulate example of Russell's famed atheism. It is also one of the most notorious. Used as evidence in a 1940 court case in which Russell was declared unfit to teach college-level philosophy, What I Believe was to become one of his most defining works. The ideas contained within were and are controversial, contentious and - to the religious - downright blasphemous. A remarkable work, it remains the best concise introduction to Russell's thought.

Tariq Ramadan is very much a public figure, named one of Time magazine's most important innovators of the twenty-first century. He is among the leading Islamic thinkers in the West, with a large following around the world. But he has also been a lightning rod for controversy. Indeed, in 2004, Ramadan was prevented from entering the U.S. by the Bush administration and despite two appeals, supported by organizations like the American Academy of Religion and the ACLU, he was barred from the country until spring of 2010, when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton finally lifted the ban.In What I Believe, Ramadan attempts to set the record straight, laying out the basic ideas he stands for in clear and accessible prose. He describes the book as a work of clarification, directed at ordinary citizens, politicians, journalists, and others who are curious (or skeptical) about his positions. Aware that that he is dealing with emotional issues, Ramadan tries to get past the barriers of prejudice and misunderstanding to speak directly, from the heart, to his Muslim and non-Muslim readers alike. In particular, he calls on Western Muslims to escape the mental, social, cultural, and religious ghettos they have created for themselves and become full partners in the democratic societies in which they live. At the same time, he calls for the rest of us to recognize our Muslim neighbors as citizens with rights and responsibilities the same as ours. His vision is of a future in which a shared and confident pluralism becomes a reality at last.

On January 6, 1975, Nottingham Forest were thirteenth in the old Second Division, five points above the relegation places and straying dangerously close to establishing a permanent place for themselves among football's nowhere men. Within five years Brian Clough had turned an unfashionable and depressed club into the kings of Europe, beating everyone in their way and knocking Liverpool off their perch long before Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United had the same idea. This is the story of the epic five-year journey that saw Forest complete a real football miracle and Clough brilliantly restore his reputation after his infamous 44-day spell at Leeds United. Forest won the First Division championship, two League Cups and back-to-back European Cups and they did it, incredibly, with five of the players Clough inherited at a club that was trying to avoid relegation to the third tier of English football. I Believe In Miracles accompanies the critically-acclaimed documentary and DVD of the same name. Based on exclusive interviews with virtually every member of the Forest team, it covers the greatest period in Clough's extraordinary life and brings together the stories of the unlikely assortment of free transfers, bargain buys, rogues, misfits and exceptionally gifted footballers who came together under the most charismatic manager there has ever been.

Life passes us by so quickly. Sometimes memories are forgotten and pictures fade away when the future is unknown and the past is all I could cling to. Life became an empty shell. Hopeless and barren, then a second chance at everything: life, love, and wealth. At the age of eighteen, I was a mother and married. After a year, a widow. I hated God for the separation from my husband but after two years found love again. Trials and tests bombarded my life. I took God's Word and tested it. It worked. My life is no more spiraling out of control, and I have purpose.

This set includes Lies Women Believe and the Lies Women Believe Companion Guide. In Lies Women Believe, bestselling author Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth exposes those areas of deception most commonly believed by Christian women—lies about God, sin, priorities, marriage and family, emotions, and more. She then sheds light on how we can be delivered from bondage and set free to walk in God's grace, forgiveness, and abundant life. "Many women live under a cloud of personal guilt and condemnation," says DeMoss. "Many are in bondage to their past. Others are gripped by fear of rejection and a longing for approval. Still others are emotional prisoners." Satan is the master deceiver and his lies are endless. And the lies Christian women believe are at the root of most of their struggles. In the Lies Women Believe Companion Guide, DeMoss divides the study into ten sessions for individuals or small groups. Each chapter includes the following features: In a Nutshell: Gives you an overview of the chapter to be studied from Lies Women Believe and reminds you of the lies discussed within that chapter. Exploring the Truth: Offers a daily personal study for you to complete during the course of the week between your small group meetings. Each day's study includes a few pages to read from Lies Women Believe and then questions to answer under the subtitles "Realize," "Reflect," and "Respond." Walking Together in the Truth: Provides questions to be discussed when your small group meets. Now there is a resource that will help you go deeper with the truths from DeMoss's best-selling book Lies Women Believe. These penetrating questions will make you and your friends think and wrestle with the Truth as you search the Bible for answers to tough issues. Truth is not just something to know but something to live out in the laboratory of life as you apply the Word to real-life situations. The Companion Guide for Lies Women Believe is ideal for small groups, Bible Studies, and Sunday school classes.

Americans love to win. But when it comes to soccer, the world’s most popular sport, the US women’s team has delivered three World Cup victories in as many decades, while the men have not advanced past the quarter-finals in nearly ninety years. In October 2017, the US Men’s National Team (USMNT) startled fans by failing to qualify for the upcoming World Cup, an episode that led both USMNT head coach Bruce Arena and US Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati to step down from their positions, and which launched a new era of reckoning for US Soccer as a whole. As the 2018 World Cup commences with the US sidelined, fans are becoming impatient: What will it take for the USMNT to finally rise to an elite level and bring home the FIFA World Cup Trophy?In I Believe That We Will Win, veteran soccer journalist Phil West delivers a compelling assessment of the history and future potential of American soccer on the international playing field. With insightful commentary and endless enthusiasm, West examines every aspect of the USMNT and their competition, detailing how the US returned to the World Cup in 1990 after forty years without qualifying, delving into the growing symbiotic relationship between the USMNT and Major League Soccer, and exploring how the US is cultivating young talent through MLS academies and the US Development Academy—and how Latino outreach initiatives, like the Sueño Alianza competition that brought Jonathan González to prominence, can be better integrated into US Soccer’s quest for talented players. Along the way, West touches on the controversial tenure of former coach Jürgen Klinsmann, the role of dual-national players, Christian Pulisic and the new wave of American players playing abroad, and other issues that have engaged American soccer fans in spirited debate. Punctuated with dozens of revealing interviews from players, coaches, and journalists, I Believe That We Will Win is both the definitive history of American World Cup play and an incisive and inspiring analysis of America’s potential to win big in the near future.

I believe we need to ask ourselves this question: what do I truly believe? When it comes to God, either you believe there is a God, or you believe there is no God. Everyone believes in something. Even atheists believe in something. Atheists tend to believe in their own power to direct their lives, or they tend to believe that destiny is what they make it. The point is, you believe in something-no matter who you are. I hope through this book you will grow closer to Christ and find the joy, comfort, and peace that comes from His forgiveness. I also hope that you are encouraged to believe in the one and only true God. There is only one God by nature. So sit down and take a minute to ask yourself, "What do I believe?"

A young domestic abuse survivor gets caught by the Devil’s snare until God’s redemptive heart takes her under his care. Influenced by false voices and the habitual domestic abuse during her childhood, Janelle grew up with a distorted image of her self-worth and what truly meant to be loved. You might have believed your identity lied on outlooks designed by external factors, ignoring you have been created and perfectly arranged without detractors. “When We Believe” narrates Janelle’s true story, who forcedly discovers her identity and value after being on the verge of death. Life appeared to have labeled her as a worthless individual who thirsted validation and lacked character. In her attempt to find herself, she dived into the wrong venues, particularly man flesh. Not having a religious background, Janelle navigated blindly over the turbulent waters the enemy had spilled ahead of her destiny. Unaware she had been purposely designed by God; she grew up molded by deceiving noises coming across. Although the evil forces appeared to be controlling her integrity, countless times the hand of God shielded her soul, sparing its existence from a guaranteed eternal place in the abyss. This story was composed to bring hope and awakening to all women who feel unworthy of love, who are clinging for assurance and significance through worldly means but.

Thousands of students come to college taking for granted the existence of God and the supernatural, but many come to feel that there is no basis for such belief. Others come with a positive faith and graduate with their faith either blasted or divorced from reason.This change of attitude toward the things of God results from an attitude which is to be found in many university classes. The opinion of an authority--the professor--is accepted as evidence without investigating his credentials, the facts which led to his conclusions, and the basic assumptions which colored his interpreation of the facts. Consequently a student may accept his professor's conclusions just as he previously accepted the Christian position without a thorough understanding of it.Ken Taylor writes this booklet to show university students and others that anti-supernatural claims are based on assumptions, not on evidence, that the Christian faith is reasonable, and that the claims of Christianity are too well substantiated to be ignored.
