The Trump Prophecies: The Astonishing True Story of the Man Who Saw Tomorrow... and What He Says Is Coming Next
In November of 2016, the world witnessed the impossible. Nearly every household in America was tuned in to the election feeds, and every update pointed to a loss for the Republican Party. But when the map of the states flipped red in the final hour, there were a select few who weren't surprised. They had always known Trump was going to win. He was chosen for such a time as this. The prophecy had said so.

This prophet, this reserved man of God, was retired firefighter Mark Taylor. The word given by the Holy Spirit was delivered on April 28, 2011 in the middle of the most debilitating sickness a man could ever experience. When the prophecy later fell into the hands of New York Times bestsellers Don and Mary Colbert, God used this new team of passionate individuals to lead the nation into a fervent prayer chain that would accomplish one of the most incredible miracles our country has ever seen.

But Trump s victory was only the beginning...
What is coming next for the most powerful nation on earth today? Mark Taylor has more to say.

In THE TRUMP PROPHECIES readers will discover:
*How the Lord can and will use anyone regardless of education, background, or health to communicate His message to the Church of Christ
*What led to the miracle of the 2016 election, the role of we the people for the will of God in the future, and what the Body of Christ needs to do to keep His blessing on our nation
*How the enemy has utilized techniques of distraction to keep the Body's focus off of God and onto internal, demoralizing disputes and how this can be overcome
*Astounding, world-altering changes in our US government Mark sees on the horizon
*The positive message of hope and encouragement that points to fresh methods of spreading the Gospel to the lost

The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion

New York Times Bestseller
 
In this “landmark contribution to humanity’s understanding of itself” (The New York Times Book Review) social psychologist Jonathan Haidt challenges conventional thinking about morality, politics, and religion in a way that speaks to conservatives and liberals alike. 
 
Drawing on his twenty five years of groundbreaking research on moral psychology, Haidt shows how moral judgments arise not from reason but from gut feelings. He shows why liberals, conservatives, and libertarians have such different intuitions about right and wrong, and he shows why each side is actually right about many of its central concerns. In this subtle yet accessible book, Haidt gives you the key to understanding the miracle of human cooperation, as well as the curse of our eternal divisions and conflicts. If you’re ready to trade in anger for understanding, read The Righteous Mind.

Woke Church: An Urgent Call for Christians in America to Confront Racism and Injustice

Between the Christianity of this land, and the Christianity of Christ, I recognize the widest possible difference.” –Frederick Douglass, 1845

The prophets of old were not easy to listen to because they did not flatter.  They did not cajole. They spoke hard words that often chafed and unsettled their listeners. Like the Old Testament prophets, and more recent prophetic voices like Frederick Douglass, Dr. Eric Mason calls the evangelical church to a much-needed reckoning. In a time when many feel confused, complacent, or even angry, he challenges the church to:

Be Aware – to understand that the issue of justice is not a black issue, it’s a kingdom issue. To learn how the history of racism in America and in the church has tainted our witness to a watching world.

Be Redemptive – to grieve and lament what we have lost and to regain our prophetic voice, calling the church to remember our gospel imperative to promote justice and mercy.

Be Active – to move beyond polite, safe conversations about reconciliation and begin to set things aright for our soon-coming King, who will be looking for a WOKE CHURCH.

This Precarious Moment: Six Urgent Steps that Will Save You, Your Family, and Our Country
America is at a crisis point. We have a limited amount of time to get it right. The nation must get “back on track” or be forever derailed. That is not melodrama. That is fact. Only Biblical truth can save our country. Some don’t seem to care that it is saved. But many of us do care. For our children, grandchildren, and future generations. There are six serious problems – racial strife, a massive immigration disaster, failure to understand Israel’s role in the world, millennial thinking, misunderstanding of the nature of government, and a church that has capitulated to culture – that are screaming for solutions. And the good news is: there are steps we can take. In this book, Pastor James Garlow and evangelical political activist David Barton present fellow Christians with six steps America needs to take to prevent chaos at this precarious moment in history.

Game of Gods: The Temple of Man in the Age of Re-Enchantment
"Humanity has three Great Desires: To be as God; to be Masters of Meaning and Destiny; to build Heaven on Earth - this is that story."
 
 Game of Gods is a comprehensive investigation into the changing nature of Western civilization, the revolutionary replacement of the Judeo-Christian framework with a new, yet ancient paradigm. It is a journey into the cracks and crevices of big history; an expedition into the expanding realm of transformational movements and ideas - forces of change that shift how we think, behave, and relate.
 
  A sense of uncertainty and foreboding anticipation is palpable, and it's more than just a feeling in the air. We are witnessing a titanic impact at the crossroads of religion, politics, technology, and culture. Fundamentally, it is a collision of worldviews - and we are all experiencing the shockwaves. 
 
   Game of Gods allows you to step back and see the unfolding drama, to understand its points of contact, and to consider challenges and opportunities. In doing so, you will be traveling through the history of ideas, while probing dreams of tomorrow: Step into closed-door meetings at the United Nations, rub shoulders with faith leaders playing politics, scrutinize the religious impulse of technology, and watch how culture becomes a platform for spiritual engineering. A new and dominant mythos emerges, the vision of Oneness. But is this the only claim? 
 
   A different and contrasting paradigm is considered against the bulwark of One-ism, a reality claim that emanates from beyond time, space, and matter. This, too, has a bearing on ethics, liberty, and freedom. It makes a case for human dignity, hope, and salvation.
 
Game of Gods explores humanity's three Great Desires, and the clash of two primary worldviews.

Gods of Ground Zero
"This explains everything!"
From Amazon TOP-60, and critically acclaimed bestselling author Carl Gallups
So many renowned biblical scholars have been trying to tell us these truths but their findings have been largely ignored and often disconnected from conventional theological understanding. Carl Gallups has gathered the answers to a myriad of tough theological questions into a single, page-turning, and captivating resource. If you don t read this book, you'll forever miss the central theme and understanding of the entire Word of God. This book is that important! - Dr. Thomas R. Horn 

Do you want to know a dirty little secret? Here it is. Much of the real message of the Garden of Eden has been adjusted over time. Think of the eternal ramifications of that truth. Literally everything wrong with the world and our own personal lives, as well as the continual deluge of filth that you read in today's headlines is directly linked to the Garden of Eden. Why is it then that we so frequently insist upon turning that vital chapter into an almost childlike bedtime story? 

Get ready for the biblical ride of your life! Critically acclaimed and Amazon TOP-60 bestselling author, Carl Gallups, pulls back the curtain and finally unearths the previously hidden biblical treasures about the world's real Ground Zero. Now, you can finally discover the shocking truths for yourself. 

GODS OF GROUND ZERO UNCOVERS THE LONG-BURIED TRUTH:

* Did you know the Bible tells us exactly where the original Garden of Eden was located? * Have you ever wondered what really happened in the Garden? * What is the full truth of why the Garden was created in the first place? * Was the Garden serpent really a walking-talking snake? * Did Jesus reveal deep secrets about the Garden of Eden? * Did you know that Jesus actually mentioned the Garden of Eden while He was on the cross? * Exactly what is it that Satan, and the demonic realm, is so desperately trying to hide from us? * How does what happened in the Garden directly relate to today s world, our personal lives, our walk with the Lord, and where eternity is actually headed?

The Bible actually reveals the explosive answers to all of these questions, and so many more like them. Now, you will know the important truth.

"Carl Gallups has done it again! If your desire is to achieve a much deeper understanding of the tumultuous times in which we live, I could not recommend a better book that will put everything in perspective from a Biblical point of view. Gods of Ground Zero is a must read! It will blow you away!" - Gregg Jackson, Bestselling Author of "Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies

Last Call for Liberty: How America's Genius for Freedom Has Become Its Greatest Threat
The hour is critical. The American republic is suffering its gravest crisis since the Civil War.

Conflicts, hostility, and incivility now threaten to tear the country apart. Competing visions have led to a dangerous moment of cultural self-destruction. This is no longer politics as usual, but an era of political warfare where our enemies are not foreign adversaries, but our fellow citizens. Yet the roots of the crisis are deeper than many realize. Os Guinness argues that we face a fundamental crisis of freedom, as America's genius for freedom has become her Achilles' heel. Our society's conflicts are rooted in two rival views of freedom, one embodied in "1776" and the ideals of the American Revolution, and the other in "1789" and the ideals of the French Revolution. Once again America has become a house divided, and Americans must make up their minds as to which freedom to follow. Will the constitutional republic be restored or replaced? This grand treatment of history, civics, and ethics in the Jewish and Christian traditions represents Guinness's definitive exploration of the prospects for human freedom today. He calls for a national conversation on the nature of freedom, and poses key questions for concerned citizens to consider as we face a critical chapter in the American story. He offers readers a checklist by which they can assess the character and consequences of the freedoms they are choosing. In the tradition of Alexis de Tocqueville, Guinness provides a visitor's careful observation of the American experiment. Discover here a stirring vision for faithful citizenship and renewed responsibility for not only the nation but also the watching world.

The Dictator Pope: The Inside Story of the Francis Papacy
The Dictator Pope by Marcantonio Colonna—pen name of Henry Sire—has rocked Rome and the entire Catholic Church with its portrait of an authoritarian, manipulative, and politically partisan pontiff. Occupying a privileged perch in Rome during the tumultuous first years of Francis’s pontificate, Colonna was privy to the shock, dismay, and even panic that the reckless new pope engendered in the Church’s most loyal and judicious leaders. The Dictator Pope discloses that Father Jorge Bergoglio (the future Pope Francis) was so unsuited for ecclesiastical leadership that the head of his own Jesuit order tried to prevent his appointment as a bishop in Argentina. Behind the benign smile of the "people's pope" Colonna reveals a ruthless autocrat aggressively asserting the powers of the papacy in pursuit of a radical agenda.

The Desert and the Sea: 977 Days Captive on the Somali Pirate Coast

Michael Scott Moore, a journalist and the author of Sweetness and Blood, incorporates personal narrative and rigorous investigative journalism in this profound and revelatory memoir of his three-year captivity by Somali pirates—a riveting,thoughtful, and emotionally resonant exploration of foreign policy, religious extremism, and the costs of survival.

In January 2012, having covered a Somali pirate trial in Hamburg for Spiegel Online International—and funded by a grant from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting—Michael Scott Moore traveled to the Horn of Africa to write about piracy and ways to end it. In a terrible twist of fate, Moore himself was kidnapped and subsequently held captive by Somali pirates. Subjected to conditions that break even the strongest spirits—physical injury, starvation, isolation, terror—Moore’s survival is a testament to his indomitable strength of mind. In September 2014, after 977 days, he walked free when his ransom was put together by the help of several US and German institutions, friends, colleagues, and his strong-willed mother. 

Yet Moore’s own struggle is only part of the story: The Desert and the Sea falls at the intersection of reportage, memoir, and history. Caught between Muslim pirates, the looming threat of Al-Shabaab, and the rise of ISIS, Moore observes the worlds that surrounded him—the economics and history of piracy; the effects of post-colonialism; the politics of hostage negotiation and ransom; while also conjuring the various faces of Islam—and places his ordeal in the context of the larger political and historical issues.           

A sort of Catch-22 meets Black Hawk Down, The Desert and the Sea is written with dark humor, candor, and a journalist’s clinical distance and eye for detail. Moore offers an intimate and otherwise inaccessible view of life as we cannot fathom it, brilliantly weaving his own experience as a hostage with the social, economic, religious, and political factors creating it. The Desert and the Sea is wildly compelling and a book that will take its place next to titles like Den of Lions and Even Silence Has an End.

God, Faith, and Reason


For decades, Michael Savage has been preaching his political faith of borders, language and culture to millions on his nationally-syndicated radio show, The Savage Nation. Now, Savage gives his audience a look into his religious faith and his ideas about the Judeo-Christian foundation of the American culture he has fought all his life to preserve.

But rather than a dry, theological treatise, Savage provides something more akin to an ancient mystery text. Drawing on Christian, Jewish, Buddhist and other spiritual sources, as well as autobiographical material and highlights from his radio show, Savage shares a series of glimpses of God he has experienced over the whole of his life, before and after his groundbreaking radio career.

Moving childhood stories, his dinner with an atheist and a Buddhist, an interview with a Jewish gangster and Savage's reflections on selected passages from ancient scriptures are just a few of the eclectic group of experiences and insights Savage shares in what is easily the most unique book on spirituality in decades. From his days as a boy growing up in New York City to many years searching for healing plants in the South Seas to his current incarnation as one of the most popular talk radio hosts in the world, Savage has been haunted by glimpses of the divine and struggled to find their meaning.

Rather than trite, orthodox answers, GOD, FAITH, AND REASON presents the reader with one man's perceptions and consideration of the daily presence of God in the world around us and how the search to find God is the finding itself.
