The Presidents & Their Faith: From George Washington to Barack Obama

The Presidents & Their Faith: From George Washington to Barack Obama by Darrin Grinder & Shaw Steve

The old adage, "never discuss religion and politics," is roundly rejected in this incisive exploration of presidential history and religious faith.

This newly updated 2016 edition of The Presidents & Their Faith is a fascinating and informative look at how all U.S. presidents exercised their personal faith, exerted presidential power, and led a religiously diverse nation.

Has there ever been a stranger prayer than Truman's, offered upon America's successful development of the atom bomb: "We pray that He may guide us to use it in His ways and for His purposes"?

At the nation's founding, Northeast...

Inside The Mind Of Donald J. Trump

He and the domain's proprietor, Tom Griffin, sat down to talk about the exchange at the Cock and Bull eatery. Griffin reviews that Trump was an obstinate mediator, hesitant to give in on even the most modest points of interest. In any case, as Michael D'Antonio writes in his late memoir of Trump, Never Enough, Griffin's most clear memory of the night relates to the showy behavior. It was as though the brilliant haired visitor...

Darwen Born, Blackburn Bred: Growing up in the Age of Affluence

Darwen Born, Blackburn Bred: Growing up in the Age of Affluence by Paul LaxtonThis book is not a scholarly work of history, nor is it truly a memoir or an autobiography, as I am under no illusions that my life merits that kind of treatment. My standpoint is that of the participant observer, and the backdrop is provided by the proud communities of Blackburn and Darwen, where my family lived, where I was educated, and where I worked before moving on to make my own way in life. I am sure that the experiences I describe will resonate with readers in many other once prosperous industrial areas. The key theme of this book is what is what like to grow up in working class communities...

As her case-worker Helen and the other staff attempt to understand the reasons behind Tracy's abusive and self-destructive behaviour, Tracy is torn between her desire to kill those around her and her desperate need to be loved. But as her negative behaviour escalates and the threat of psychiatric care becomes increasingly...

Leaping at this chance to be a mountain man, with no experience in the wilds, he left the world. Thirteen years later, he published his beloved memoir of that winter, Indian Creek Chronicles -Into the Wild with a twist.

Twenty five years later, he was asked to return to the wilderness to babysit more fish eggs. But no longer a footloose twenty year old, at forty-five, he was the father of two young sons. He left again, alone, straight into the heart...

Although the wing of the bird seemed like the most obvious natural mechanism to attempt replicate, it was actually contained hot air, as demonstrated by the Montgolfiers and their balloon, that gave birth to the era human aviation. Since the first manned balloon flight in 1783, developments have come thick and fast, the airship, the aeroplane, and finally the space...
