A Banquet of Consequences Book Excerpt:

“The current environment of zero-cost money, concentrated bank power, and anaemic productive growth has coalesced not by accident or economic cycle but by wilful choice. Das warns that without significant change, the only possible future holds dire consequences for all but an elite few. His tone is as urgent as the problem. All central bankers, politicians, and citizens should heed his words.” Nomi Prins, author of Other People’s Money and All the Presidents’ Bankers “Written with passion and insight, and laden with facts, the book provides a clear explanation of the economic, social, and political issues that lie ahead, and the difficulty in solving them.” Jon Markman, Forbes columnist and president and publisher of Markman Capital Insight A Banquet of Consequences is an intricately researched, decisively written and devastating analysis of today’s economy. Satyajit Das connects disparate strands of a story, and in doing so delivers a damning critique of global economic policies of the last 50 years. He argues that governments and citizens of every political hue are now so addicted to growth and resistant to change, that a prolonged period of chronic stagnation, sustained by large infusions of monetary morphine and continuous interventions, or an unavoidable financial, political and social breakdown are the only possible outcomes.

Banquet of Consequences RELOADED A Book Excerpt:

For ordinary individuals, the goal of a steady job, a home of one's own, a comfortable retirement and better opportunities for their children is receding. In this brilliant, clear-eyed account, updated to include over 150 pages of new insights and analysis, Satyajit Das links past, present and future to show that it's not just our unrealistic expectations but poor choices that are to blame. The strategies after the Great Recession have failed, not least because such growth cannot continue indefinitely. The COVID-19 pandemic was merely the pin that pricked an ever-expanding bubble of fake prosperity and false hopes. It is the first trial of many to come. The solution - fundamental change - involves cost and is therefore ignored. Das explains why the ultimate adjustment, whether stretched out over time or in the form of another sudden collapse, will be life-changing.

A Banquet of Consequences Book Excerpt:

Essential reading for anyone interested in the future of the global economy and their own prospects, A Banquet of Consequences incisively explains the problems confronting us, how we're making those problems worse, and what the real solutions are. For ordinary individuals, the goal of a steady job, a home of one's own, a comfortable retirement and a good life for our children is receding. In this brilliantly clear-eyed account, Satyajit Das links past, present and future to show that it's not just unrealistic expectations, but the poor performance of those governing us that are to blame. The strategies and policies deployed to promote economic growth after the Great Recession have failed, not least because such growth cannot continue indefinitely. The solution – structural change – is electorally unpopular and therefore ignored. A Banquet of Consequences explains why the ultimate adjustment, whether stretched out over time or in the form of another sudden crash, will be life-changing. An internationally respected commentator on financial markets, credited with predicting the Global Financial crisis and featured in the 2010 Oscar-winning documentary Inside Job, Satyajit Das is our finest writer about money and the global economy. Informed, impassioned, lively and witty, A Banquet of Consequences is the only book you need to understand what the future will bring. Praise for Satyajit Das's previous books. 'Fascinating . . . explaining not only the high-minded theory behind the business and its various products but the sometimes sordid reality of the industry.' Gillian Tett, Financial Times 'A true insider's devastating analysis . . . Das takes a knife to global finance and financiers to reveal its inner workings without fear or favor.' Nouriel Roubini, Professor of Economics at NYU Stern School of Business 'A powerful book . . . highly readable and informative . . . Demands to be read.' Lindsay Tanner, The Monthly

Anchor Man Book Excerpt:

If you thought your parenting responsibilities ended after eighteen years per child, you thought wrong. Instead, it's your privilege to lead your family-and influence succeeding generations-for a century...or more. Anchor Man presents the high calling of fatherhood, the traits of a Christian father, the adventures that await him as he interacts with his children, and the significance of his role as a good family man. Steve Farrar presents these roles and responsibilities in a way any man wanting to increase his understanding of his place in the family, and our society, can put into action every day. Anchor Man encourages, exhorts, and demonstrates with biblical concepts how to raise a godly family and how to anchor that family in Christ for the next one hundred years. Farrar's unique teaching style blends humor and practicality with the tools fathers need to become all that God intended them to be as the leaders of their families. "When a man gets serious about following Christ with his whole heart," Farrar says, "God desires to not only pour out His blessing on that man, but on his children, and his children's children.

Compassionate Eschatology Book Excerpt:

Do "eschatology" and "peace" go together? Is eschatology mostly about retribution and fear--or compassion and hope? Compassionate Eschatology brings together a group of international scholars representing a wide range of Christian traditions to address these questions. Together they make the case that Christianity's teaching about the "end times" should and can center on Jesus's message of peace and reconciliation. Offering a peace-oriented reading of the Book of Revelation and other biblical materials relevant to Christian eschatology, this book breaks new ground in its consistent message that compassion not retribution stands at the heart of the doctrine of the last things. Besides its creative treatment of biblical materials, Compassionate Eschatology also makes a distinctive contribution in how several essays engage the thought of Rene Girard and his mimetic theory. Girard's project is shown to reinforce the biblical message of eschatological peace.

Addictions a Banquet in the Grave Book Excerpt:

There is an accepted tradition among those who struggle with addictions that goes something like this: helping yourself will help others, and helping others will help yourself. If an alcoholic learns to "take his soul to task," it will bless family, friends, co-workers, and probably many others. If that same alcoholic looks out for the needs of others, and goes out of his or her way to serve another drinker, then that person will most certainly be blessed in some way. The reader will probably come to this book with a particular role in mind. For example, many might read with the idea of helping others. But as they dig into Scripture's teaching on the reckless nature of the human heart and its rich teaching on self-control, it prompts one to acknowledge their own need for help as well. So thinking about your own struggles is the best way to start. Welch’s book admonishes the reader to be sure to look for addictions in their own hearts and lives. Even though the focus of this book will be primarily on drugs and alcohol—prototypic addictions—the basic ideas are relevant to all kinds of sins that are not easily cast off. What is the basic point of this book? Theology makes a difference. It is the infrastructure of our lives. Build it poorly and the building will eventually collapse in ruins. Build it well and you will be prepared for anything. The basic theology for addictions is that the root problem goes deeper than our genetic makeup. Addictions are ultimately a disorder of worship. Will we worship ourselves and our own desires or will we worship the true God?

Alongside comprehensive coverage of the standard topics, this thoroughly revised second edition also introduces several philosophically important nonclassical logics, free logics, and modal logics, and gives the reader an idea of how they can take their knowledge further.

Interpersonal Relationship Skills for Ministers Book Excerpt:

"This book addresses a major need."-Christian Standard Reports from churches indicate that poor interpersonal relationships are the primary reasons for minister failure. Though they are taught the important skills of how to interpret the Bible, how to discern and articulate doctrine, how to direct worship services, and more, ministers are eventually faced with a congregation. While they may frequently call on some skills and others not at all, interpersonal relationship skills are vital to any ministry. This book is designed to aid ministers, seminary students, denominational leaders, and church members nurture their relationships with one another and with God, and to help the understanding of oneself and of others that is part of the minister's task. These essays, from the faculty of the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, focus on four areas of concern: relationship with oneself, with family, in the church, and in the community. Above all, these lessons are devised to aid in nurturing a secure setting for effectiveness in the ministry and in service to God.

Lucky Country Book Excerpt:

Can we reinvent the Lucky Country? Fifty years ago author Donald Horne described Australia as 'a lucky country run by second-rate people', adding that our leaders are mostly unaware of events that surround them. The good fortune continued when our wide brown land proved to contain bountiful resources of saleable minerals, allowing successive generations of second-rate leaders to create an illusion of economic progress by liquidating those assets. But a crisis is approaching, driven by irresponsible encouragement of population growth rates typical of poor developing countries. In this polemic work, Ian Lowe will assess the state of Australia and whether we can retain our status of the Lucky Country.
