Running Against the Devil

release date: Jan 14, 2020
Running Against the Devil
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A savvy guidebook for beating Trump’s tricks, traps, and tweets from a founder of The Lincoln Project, now updated with new material on the historic battle between Trump and Joe Biden—and how the pandemic has changed the race “If you believe America’s future depends on Donald Trump’s political machine being crushed at the polls next year, then Rick Wilson’s Running Against the Devil is a must-read.”—Joe Scarborough, MSNBC Donald Trump is exactly the disaster we feared for America. Hated by a majority of Americans, Trump’s administration is corrupt, inept, and rocked by daily scandals. In the handling of 2020’s coronavirus pandemic, its incompetence has been deadly. Trump can’t win in 2020, right? Wrong. As 2016 proved, Trump can’t win, but Joe Biden can sure as hell lose. Only one thing can save Trump, and that’s a Democratic campaign that runs the race Trump wants Democrats to run instead of the campaign they must run to win in 2020. Wilson combines decades of national political experience and insight in his take-noprisoners analysis, hammering Trump’s destructive and dangerous first term in a case-by-case takedown of the worst president in history and describing the terrifying prospect of four more years of Trump. Like no one else can, Wilson blows the lid off Trump’s 2020 political war machine, showing the exact strategies and tactics Republicans will use against Biden, and how the Democrats can avoid the catastrophes waiting for them if they fall into Trump’s traps. Running Against the Devil is sharply funny, brutally honest, and infused with Wilson’s biting commentary. It’s a vital indictment of Trump, a no-nonsense, no-holds-barred road map to saving America, and the guide to making Donald Trump a one-term president. The stakes are too high to do anything less.

Swirled All the Way to the Shrub

release date: Dec 17, 2018
Swirled All the Way to the Shrub
In a splintered bar in Boston, Pinky DeVroom, newspaperman, amateur cynic and would-be-novelist, clutches his sour Prohibition brandy and watches his world get sucked down into the vortex. Hope comes in the form of an astute, comely literary agent named Elfred. But hope can be its own form of hell. Watch game Pinky twist, squirm and waffle while the world wobbles. The Depression and Prohibition''s consequences are fundamental to the work, as are the appearances of some real-life figures such as Sylvia Beach of Shakespeare & Company and Alice Hamilton, the pioneering scientist. The effects of lead poisoning, the unfettered joys of the "banana messenger" and the glories of Telechron clocks also have their time in the sun. As do rigorous bartending practices and the perils of owning a hat. But all those tributaries of the story return to Pinky: Through continued tests and failures, through the comradeship of good friends, through his own lacerations and partial healings, will he find fulfillment? Will those friends, a mysterious secret society, and the judicious prodding of the remarkable Doctor Alice Hamilton help him get the girl, the book deal, or at least hang on to his job? Or his hat? Literature has never had a hero named Pinky--but despite literature''s measured qualms, this is its greatest chance.

Father God, After Believing in Jesus as Savior, Can One Lose Their Salvation?

release date: Mar 02, 2020
Father God, After Believing in Jesus as Savior, Can One Lose Their Salvation?
It is not uncommon in biblical history for God to use the unqualified, the uneducated, and the uncooperative to do His will. He has provided direction and revelation for such people for the express purpose of bringing glory to Himself and His plan. Here I am, fulfilling all three of the undesirable human characteristics for the express purpose of bringing Jesus glory. After one receives Jesus as Lord and Savior, a hunger to read the Bible soon follows. The more I learned and grew, the more questions sprouted during my Christian growth. Big personal questions followed, and I wanted big personal answers. I believe many of us have similar questions too. This book answers not only the title question but more questions than just the ones listed below: Would Jesus really erase someone''s name from His book of Life? And if so, why? God gave humanity free will, but are there limits to one''s free will? Can one really renounce one''s salvation? How do the Ten Commandments apply to believers in Jesus and His new covenant? What are the differences between the two covenants? How do those differences apply to one''s life? If I am forgiven of all my sins, do I still pay for my sins? If Jesus forgave all my sins, what will I be judged for? I believe my past sins are forgiven, but what about today''s and tomorrow''s sins? Do I have to confess all my sins till the day I die? What if I forget to confess a sin? Is it right that we''re taught we are saved by grace in the new covenant but then we must live by obedience to the Ten Commandments in the old covenant? What chance of success do we have of that since Jesus is the only person to never break a single law and never sin? What happens when I deliberately sin? How did Jesus define sin differently than Moses?

Plantation Jesus

release date: May 22, 2018
Plantation Jesus
Not long ago, most white American Christians believed that Jesus blessed slavery. God wasn’t bothered by Jim Crow. Baby Jesus had white skin. Meet Plantation Jesus: a god who is comfortable with bigotry, and an idol that distorts the message of the real Savior. That false image of God is dead, right? Wrong, argue the authors of Plantation Jesus, an authoritative new book on one of the most urgent issues of our day. Through their shared passion for Jesus Christ and with an unblinking look at history, church, and pop culture, authors Skot Welch and Rick Wilson detail the manifold ways that racism damages the church’s witness. Together Welch and Wilson take on common responses by white Christians to racial injustice, such as “I never owned a slave,” “I don’t see color; only people,” and “We just need to get over it and move on.” Together they call out the church’s denials and dodges and evasions of race, and they invite readers to encounter the Christ of the disenfranchised.With practical resources and Spirit-filled stories, Plantation Jesus nudges readers to learn the history, acknowledge the injury, and face the truth. Only then can the church lead the way toward true reconciliation. Only then can the legacy of Plantation Jesus be replaced with the true way of Jesus Christ.

Everything Trump Touches Dies

Everything Trump Touches Dies
#1 New York Times bestseller! A respected, long-time Republican strategist, ad-maker, and contributor for The Daily Beast skewers the disease that is destroying the conservative movement and burning down the GOP: Trumpism. Includes an all-new chapter analyzing Trump’s impact on the 2018 elections. In the #1 New York Times bestselling Everything Trump Touches Dies, political campaign strategist and commentator Rick Wilson delivers “a searingly honest, bitingly funny, comprehensive answer to the question we find ourselves asking most mornings: ‘What the hell is going on?’ (Chicago Tribune). The Guardian hails Everything Trump Touches Dies, saying it gives, “more unvarnished truths about Donald Trump than anyone else in the American political establishment has offered. Wilson never holds back.” Rick mercilessly exposes the damage Trump has done to the country, to the Republican Party, and to the conservative movement that has abandoned its principles for the worst President in American history. Wilson unblinkingly dismantles Trump’s deceptions and the illusions to which his supporters cling, shedding light on the guilty parties who empower and enable Trump in Washington and in the media. He calls out the race-war dead-enders who hitched a ride with Trump, the alt-right basement dwellers who worship him, and the social conservatives who looked the other way. Publishers Weekly calls it, “a scathing, profane, unflinching, and laugh-out-loud funny rebuke of Donald Trump and his presidency.” No left-winger, Wilson is a lifelong conservative who delivers his withering critique of Trump from the right. A leader of the Never Trump movement, he warned from the start that Trump would destroy the lives and reputations of everyone in his orbit, and Everything Trump Touches Dies is a deft chronicle the tragicomic political story of our time. From the early campaign days through the shock of election night, to the inconceivable train-wreck of Trump’s first year. Rick Wilson provides not only an insightful analysis of the Trump administration, but also an optimistic path forward for the GOP, the conservative movement, and the country. “Hilarious, smartly written, and usually spot-on” (Kirkus Reviews), Everything Trump Touches Dies is perfect for those on either side of the aisle who need a dose of unvarnished reality, a good laugh, a strong cocktail, and a return to sanity in American politics.

Scots Who Made America

release date: Mar 19, 2015
Scots Who Made America
Andrew Carnegie was born in Dumfermline, son of a humble weaver, but left his native shores for the New World in 1848. On his arrival in Pennsylvania he became a bobbin-boy at a local cotton mill. Then followed a serious of jobs, each better than the last, until Carnegie was in a position to set up his own business, the Carnegie Steel Company. This business made the Fife-born lad the richest man in the world; a typical example of a home-born Scot whose effect on the life and culture of the United States has been incalculable. Wilson provides an accessible and intriguing guide to Scottish innovators who have given their energy and inspiration to improving the fields of engineering, publishing, politics, literature, business and medicine in the United States, from the alleged Scots discovery of America by Scots Nobleman Henry St Clair in the 14th century, to the photographer who captured no less than 12 presidents for prosperity, Henry Benson. Others, like Sean Connery, J.M Barrie and Robert Burns, have a more removed, but just as potent influence on the States, as Wilson illustrates. Featured Scots include: Alexander Graham Bell, James Gordon Bennett, Harry Benson, Binny and Ronaldson, David Dunbar Buick., Andrew Carnegie, James Craik, Robert Dollar, Robert Forbes, Hugh Grant, Andrew Hallidie, Captain Kidd, John Muir, allan Pinkerton, Alexander Wilson, James Wilson, Samuel Wilson, John Witherspoon, Alexander Bain, Sean Connery and Harry Lauder.

The Man Who Was Jekyll and Hyde

release date: Mar 02, 2015
The Man Who Was Jekyll and Hyde
He was a respected cabinetmaker and councillor by day – but Deacon William Brodie changed into a sinister, thieving monster when darkness fell on the old city of Edinburgh. Cleverly employing his respectable reputation to access the richest members of society before stealing from them as a masked burglar, he used the resulting illicit money to fund yet another life – with five children and two mistresses. But Brodie – whose chilling story inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to create the classic tale of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde about a century later – came fatally unstuck when an accomplice informed on him. Then neither his ill-gotten gains nor his plans to cheat the hangman could save him. Rick Wilson traces the increasingly desperate double life of Brodie, from his first taste of crime through to his public disgrace and execution ... hanging on the very gallows he allegedly conceived himself.

The Man Who Wore Mismatched Socks

release date: May 01, 2014
The Man Who Wore Mismatched Socks
The Man Who Wore Mismatched Socks is the story of Aloysius St. James Spottisworth-Gack, a Royal Air Force pilot who comes from a long line of brewers. His family''s firm, Gack&Bacon Ltd, dates to the first year of the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. Their in-house pub is central to community life in their London suburb of Parsons Green. Aloysius serves in the Battle of Britain as one of Churchill''s "The Few" and defends Great Britain from the threat of Nazi invasion. Severely tested by the experiences of combat and the loss that war brings, he comes to despise the treatment of human beings as interchangeable, temporary and disposable. After the war Aloysius and his father Archibald discover that a corporate brewer, Slore''s, is buying up as many independent breweries as it can. Slore''s uses financial incentives to coerce owners to sell out, converts independent breweries to their own recipes and procedures, and then after a time terminates most of the original staff and assimilates the operations. As early as 1947, the Gacks are fearful that much of Great Britain''s rich brewing tradition will be lost into the mass-market corporate sameness that is Slore''s. Aloysius decides to fight back and engages in a long running battle of wits with his corporate rival and its young CEO, Alabaster Prufrock Slore. Along the way Aloysius and his family are caught up in historical events such as the Great Smog of 1952 and the Aldermaston anti-nuclear marches. We also see Aloysius struggle with the externalities of his own creations, as a close friend becomes an alcoholic. Aloysius remains in the RAF Reserves and trains younger pilots in the art of reconnaissance against the Soviet Union. In this role he seeks to strike at what he views as an inhuman system which has crushed the human spirit of millions. Aloysius influences the design of a remarkable low-level spyplane, the Hapax One, and pilots it on a series of daring missions into the Soviet Union. Through all his exploits, Aloysius takes a stand against the treatment of human beings as interchangeable, temporary and disposable.

The Angels That Are Among Us
Ever since I was old enough to understand, I can remember my parents would always tell me, aGod moves in mysterious ways.a When my grandparents passed on, it was said, and when a close family friend passed on, it was once again said. It seemed that my life was becoming so complicated and sometimes just did not seem to make any sense. But that would all change in January of 2007 when I had some sort of brain infection and my body started shutting down. The doctors did not give me a chance to pull through and were in the process of preparing my family to say their goodbyes. What was really happening while I was in a coma for two weeks was something much more. And while many of my family found it hard to believe, I think that every one of them became believers in that old saying, aGod moves in mysterious ways,a when I told them things that were only known by themselves and others who stood around me during my vigil.
