Straight to Hell Book Excerpt:

The hilarious New York Times bestseller “sharply observes the lives of globe-trotting, overindulging investment bankers” (Entertainment Weekly). “Some chick asked me what I would do with 10 million bucks. I told her I’d wonder where the rest of my money went.” —@GSElevator For three years, the notorious @GSElevator Twitter feed offered a hilarious, shamelessly voyeuristic look into the real world of international finance. Hundreds of thousands followed the account, Goldman Sachs launched an internal investigation, and when the true identity of the man behind it all was revealed, it created a national media sensation—but that’s only part of the story. Where @GSElevator captured the essence of the banking elite with curated jokes and submissions overheard by readers, Straight to Hell adds John LeFevre’s own story—an unapologetic and darkly funny account of a career as a globe-conquering investment banker spanning New York, London, and Hong Kong. Straight to Hell pulls back the curtain on a world that is both hated and envied, taking readers from the trading floors and roadshows to private planes and after-hours overindulgence. Full of shocking lawlessness, boyish antics, and win-at-all-costs schemes, this is the definitive take on the deviant, dysfunctional, and absolutely excessive world of finance. “Shocking and sordid—and so much fun.” —Daily News (New York) “LeFevre’s workplace anecdotes include tales of nastiness, sabotage, favoritism, sexism, racism, expense-account padding, and legally questionable collusion.” —The New Yorker

Vulgar Genres Book Excerpt:

Vulgar Genres examines gay pornographic writing, showing how literary fiction was both informed by pornography and amounts to a commentary on the genre's relation to queer male erotic life. Long fixated on visual forms, the field of porn studies is overdue for a book-length study of gay pornographic writing. Steven Ruszczycky delivers with an impressively researched work on the ways gay pornographic writing emerged as a distinct genre in the 1960s and went on to shape queer male subjectivity well into the new millennium. ​Ranging over four decades, Ruszczycky draws on a large archive of pulp novels and short fiction, lifestyle magazines and journals, reviews, editorial statements, and correspondence. He puts these materials in conversation with works by a number of contemporary writers, including William Carney, Dennis Cooper, Samuel Delany, John Rechy, and Matthew Stadler. While focused on the years 1966 to 2005, Vulgar Genres reveals that the history of gay pornographic writing during this period informs much of what has happened online over the past twenty years, from cruising to the production of digital pornographic texts. The result is a milestone in porn studies and an important contribution to the history of gay life.

Straight to the Heart of Psalms Book Excerpt:

The Straight to the Heart commentary series brings greater accessibility to the Bible so that people can understand the message that the Holy Spirit inspired the authors to write. It aims to get people reading so that they can hear God’s voice for themselves; it will challenge them and provide a springboard into a deeper relationship with the divine. In Straight to the Heart of Psalms we learn that God wants us to worship Him, so it shouldn’t surprise us that the longest book of the Bible sets out to show us how. The psalms were written by Israel’s greatest worshippers over the course of 1,000 years in order to teach God’s people how He wants them to worship Him. They show us what kind of worship is music to God’s ears. The series will cover the whole Bible in 25 volumes to be published through 2015. Previously published volumes include Genesis, Moses, 1 & 2 Samuel, Matthew, John, Acts, Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, and Revelation. “Fresh. Solid. Simple. Really good stuff.” —R. T. Kendall “Phil Moore has served us magnificently.” —Terry Virgo “Most commentaries are dull. These are alive. Most commentaries are for scholars. These are for you!” —Michael Green “Think of these books as the Bible’s message distilled for everyone.” —Adrian Warnock

Women Pastors and Uncovering Book Excerpt:

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT WOMEN IN MINISTRY? Some Christians believe that women can become the priests of God; others believe it is an abomination unto God. Some believe God commanded that a woman cover her head while praying; others believe that it is only Paul's commandment that women cover their heads while praying, and that Paul's commandments are arbitrary and are not binding on women. Some believe God created men and women equal; others believe that God created women as subordinates to men by creating man first and then woman out of man. Some say Christ liberated women to be equal with men, others say He did not. Some say the biological conditions such as pregnancy, menstruation, nursing, and lactation defile the altar and make the church little more than a maternity home. Are women restricted to specific womanly duties only? So, who is correct? "Women Pastors and Uncovering" addresses these controversial subjects with much documentation from Scripture. You can know the truth and the truth will make you free.

Thinking Through Statistics Book Excerpt:

Simply put, Thinking Through Statistics is a primer on how to maintain rigorous data standards in social science work, and one that makes a strong case for revising the way that we try to use statistics to support our theories. But don’t let that daunt you. With clever examples and witty takeaways, John Levi Martin proves himself to be a most affable tour guide through these scholarly waters. Martin argues that the task of social statistics isn't to estimate parameters, but to reject false theory. He illustrates common pitfalls that can keep researchers from doing just that using a combination of visualizations, re-analyses, and simulations. Thinking Through Statistics gives social science practitioners accessible insight into troves of wisdom that would normally have to be earned through arduous trial and error, and it does so with a lighthearted approach that ensures this field guide is anything but stodgy.

Encyclopaedia of Hell Book Excerpt:

A tour de force of darkness, Encyclopaedia of Hell is a manual of Earth written by Lord Satan for his invading hordes of demons, complete with hundreds of unpleasant illustrations, diagrams, and a comprehensive and utterly repulsive dictionary of Earth terms. Since the customs and mores of humanity are alien and inconceivable to demons, Satan wrote this strangely poetic military handbook for the enlightenment and edification of his demon armies. A masterpiece expressing Satan's hatred for humanity and himself, the Encyclopaedia includes "Techniques of Stalking and Eating Humans," "Methods of Canning Human Pus," and "Dicing and Slicing Orphaned Children." Why the invasion? During the last century in particular, Hell has become seriously overcrowded. Satan needs more land mass for the damned and to use the human livestock to feed his hungry demon invaders. Since this book is the 666th commemorative edition, this Encyclopaedia contains special commemorative material. Martin Olson's savage wit provides the firepower for a preposterous literary feat unaccomplished since Mark Twain passed—channeling the real voice of Satan. Over the past fifteen years, Olson has written and produced nine comedy specials, inflicted on the populace via CBS, HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, and A&E.

The Light Entrusted to You Book Excerpt:

We keep the flame of our faith alive by sharing it with others. But we cannot share what we do not know and love ourselves. That's why author John Wood wrote this practical, inspiring primer, which explains the Catholic faith in six simple and engaging lessons that can be applied to everyday life. The first letters of the six lessons spell the acronym SAINTS, illustrating that the Catholic faith has the power to form ordinary men and women into extraordinary Christians, in other words, saints. Using popular movies, songs, stories, sports, and life experiences, author John Wood illuminates the wisdom of Catholicism and equips us to share it with others, especially our own children.

One Second After You Die Book Excerpt:

If there's one universal truth in life, it's got to be this. We all wonder what lies beyond the grave. Is it the end of our existence or is it the beginning of an eternal bliss? Is it something to be fearful of, or is it something to look forward to? And even though most people seem to be in the dark on this, one thing is for sure, One Second After You Die, you'll find out. Therefore, in order to prepare you for eternity before it's too late, this book, One Second After You Die takes a look at the four basic questions concerning eternal matters: Is There Life After Death? What Happens When You Die? Is There Really a Hell? Is there Really a Heaven? As you will discover, there are only two options. It's either up, or it's down. Each of us are currently headed for eternal bliss in heaven or eternal torment in hell. Scoff all you want, but once you've gone, there is no coming back and there is no second chance. Give your life to Jesus Christ today because One Second After You Die, it's going to be too late.

The Road to Hell Book Excerpt:

Most of Jesus' teaching on this uncomfortable subject was addressed to his followers, yet it hardly features in sermons today. Challenging the modern alternatives of liberal 'universalism' and evangelical 'annihilationism', David Pawson presents the traditional concept of endless torment as soundly biblical, illustrating his argument with in-depth Scripture studies on controversial passages. Heaven is also a reality, he affirms, but it is hell which is being overlooked.
