Identifying Paul´s Opponents:The Question of Method in 2 Corinthians Jerry L. Sumney
Servants of Satan, False Brothers, and Other Opponents of Paul: Jerry L. Sumney
He is one of basketball´s towering figures: Mr. Clutch, who mesmerized his opponents and fans. The coach who began the Lakers´ resurgence in the 1970s. The general manager who helped bring Showtime to Los Angeles, creating a championship-winning force that continues to this day. Now, for the first time, the legendary Jerry West tells his story-from his tough childhood in West Virginia, to his unbelievable college success at West Virginia University, his 40-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, and his relationships with NBA legends like Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O´Neal, and Kobe Bryant. Unsparing in its self-assessment and honesty, WEST BY WEST is far more than a sports memoir: it is a profound confession and a magnificent inspiration.
This book analyzes the highly contentious payday lending industry, presenting valuable new data collected during Canada´s recent regulatory reviews and demonstrating its relevance to payday lending conversations taking place worldwide. The authors treat the industry with a balanced hand by establishing its importance as an example of financialization and acknowledging the complex impact of payday lending services on low-income and credit-constrained clients. Up-to-date data from an interdisciplinary mix of financial, econometric, legal, behavioral economic, and socioeconomic sources-all in the context of an established Canadian industry-provide both proponents and opponents of payday lending with valuable evidence for their discussions of how much regulation is required to minimize harmful consequences. These insights from Canada expand a US-centric conversation and provide a key resource for the growing list of countries in which the industry is present, from the UK and Poland to South Africa and Australia.

Here is the famous Beowulf story, retold for the young-adult listener. Like the original Anglo-Saxon manuscript, it is divided into three parts. The first section narrates Beowulf´s battle against Grendel. The second section tells of the furious revenge of Grendel´s mother, an ageless monster with indomitable will, who lives in a dark green, murky sea, which the Danes believed to be bottomless, and who can stalk and kill with her son´s savage power. (This section is often left out of retellings.)The third section shows the great hero in his declining years and almost never appears in retellings. Herein, Beowulf is an old man. It is decades after his assistance to King Hrothgar, and Beowulf is back home among the Geats as their chosen king. His final battle shows his new method in fighting. Youthful speed and strength have been replaced with cunning, deception, strategy. There are moments when his strength revives. His opponent is an aging dragon, who now flies slowly and awkwardly, but can still shoot down enough fire to imperil the Geats kingdom. Aging hero faces aging monster in an early-day twilight of the gods, with displays of valor and chivalry before these terms were known. The dragon breathes streaks of lethal fire, but suffers shortness of breath. The heavy scales on his body provide excellent armor, but tend to tire him. While flying, he notices small birds passing him. The two opponents feel a grudging respect and realize their era is ending, no matter who wins their relentless duel. 1. Language: English.

Oliver Stone and the Camel Club are back in their most dangerous adventure yet: a war on two fronts. Casino king Jerry Bagger from The Collectors is hunting Annabelle Conroy, the beautiful woman who conned him out of millions. Stone and his colleagues Reuben, Milton, and Caleb marshal all their resources to protect Annabelle. Yet all their skills may not be enough when a deadly new opponent rips off the veneer of Stone´s own mysterious past: Bagger´s menace pales next to newcomer Harry Finn´s lethality. Passing as a normal family man, Finn has already killed three men, with more targets to come. When Finn sets his bull´s-eye on Stone, his reason will be the greatest shock of all, causing listeners to reconsider their views of good and evil. As bodies and institutions topple, the story rockets toward a shattering finale that will leave the survivors of this explosive tale changed forever. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Brandon.

One-Hundred-Fifty Years Later, the Creation-Evolution Debate Still Rages. Both Sides Are Half-Right. And Both Are Wrong. Meet the opponents: In one corner - Proponents of Intelligent Design like William Dembski, Stephen Meyer, and Michael Behe. Many defy scientific consensus, maintaining evolution is a fraud. They challenge decades of data in biology, chemistry, genetics, and paleontology. In the other corner - Devout Neo-Darwinists like Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and Jerry Coyne, who insist evolution happens ´´willy nilly´´. Strangely, they sidestep the latest science, glossing over crucial questions and fascinating details. But what if both sides are half-right? What if both sides are missing something important, clinging on to outdated views, theories, and interpretations? There is a third way. Evolution 2.0 reveals experiments which prove that, while evolution is not a hoax, neither are changes random nor accidental. They are targeted, adaptive, and aware. The book features a Technology Prize for Origin of Information: $3 million USD as of Spring 2016. Details in Chapter 23 and Appendix 4. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Perry Marshall.
