I have many objects in presenting this book to the public. First: I love my race regardless of the prejudice against her, the unenviable position she holds, and the things she is falsely said to be guilty of. I demonstrate my love for her by launching this book before the public as somewhat of a defense against the prejudice of ancient, as well as modern historical writers and lecturers, who have misrepresented her, and took from her the good deeds and honors that are justly due her. Secondly: I realize that my race has had defenders, and has some now, men of my race and men of other races. But I am simply presenting this book as an humble race defender, in connection with the body of race defenders, and if my theory in this book is accepted as one of the little fingers of this splendid body, I will feel that I have accomplished some results and thus portrayed the story of “The Widow’s Mite”—she gave all she had, and I contribute likewise
Whether through our own fallen temperament, willful disobedience, or as victims
of the hurtful actions of others, many of us struggle with crippling emotions,
among them perfectionism, depression, and low self-worth. The pain of such emotions

and successfully with their inner hurts. Through the realistic, scriptural approach
that Dr. David Seamands brings to this deeply personal subject, you too can
find healing–and then become an agent of healing for other strugglers.

Simplicity. Clarity. Relevance.
The Bible contains the best advice you can find about how to have a clean financial household.
How important is money?
How does the New Covenant change our relationship with money?
How hard should we work?
How much should we save?
Is debt evil?
Should we be more on guard against greed? Or fear?
What is the true meaning of Stewardship?
Can we tithe our way to prosperity?
The financial principles in the Bible allow us to live up to our highest ideals as human beings, as protectors and providers for the people who depend upon us.
My hope is that by reading this book you’ll be moved to believe as I do, that although God does not promise us material prosperity, He has ordered the world so that prosperity often results from keeping Him first and following His financial principles.
You can trust the Bible’s advice about money.

From the Back Cover
From the day she is born in Baghdad, Najila’s life is defined by conflict. Her mother a Muslim and her father the Greek Orthodox Byzantine ambassador to Persia, she must one day choose between their beliefs.
When her father dies in a tragic accident, seventeen-year-old Najila inherits his estate—Hawks Hill in Constantinople—and something far more precious: his beautiful silver and amber cross. After her father’s death, a bitter and grieving Najila leaves her home behind and sets out to claim her inheritance in Constantinople, a new and unfamiliar city where she finds many surprises waiting for her: an enemy, romance, and a new life.
Leaving behind all she has ever known, Najila will be forever changed by Hawks Hill and her father’s beloved cross as they push her to discover herself and finally come to terms with her faith.
“At times I had chills running up and down my arms, and there were other periods when I fought tears. My interest did not once falter.”

In Real Peace, Warren Wiersbe’s practical, Scripture-based teaching helps Christians develop a life of peace and freedom. A combination of two Wiersbe classics, Enjoy Your Freedom and Meet Your Conscience, it shows why true freedom does not come from living as we wish, but from living in relationship to God. Wiersbe also shows how, in Christ, readers can receive freedom from sin, the law, and material things, and become all that God intended them to be.
Real Peace explores conscience as a gift from God that helps guard our freedom, approving when we do right and convicting when we do wrong. Wiersbe examines the different types of consciences and explains how a conscience not exercised by obedience to God’s Word will gradually become unreliable. Informative and compelling, this guide will delight Wiersbe fans and anyone looking for a vibrant and accessible definition of freedom and peace.
