📒Greater Than Gold ✍ David Boudia
📝Greater Than Gold Book Synopsis : One of America’s most heralded young divers, David Boudia twice went for Olympic gold, training obsessively and whole-heartedly for success. In his first Olympics, he failed miserably, not winning a single medal. Four years later saw a different story: he mounted the podium twice, winning both gold and bronze. The difference? In the intervening years, he’d changed the focus of his quest from seeking glory for himself to giving glory to God. In Greater Than Gold, Boudia provides a behind-the-scenes access to the rarefied world of world-class athletics while also showing readers that when they place their hope in God, they receive what they’ve been seeking all along.

📒Greater Than Gold ✍ Gayle Eggen Aanensen
📝GREATER THAN GOLD Book Synopsis : My novella, "Greater than Gold," is a short, meaningful Christmas story, written for middle grade and up readers. Parents and grandparents who buy the book, will also enjoy reading this emotional story that revolves around two troubled boys and their two Christmases-Oscar in the present day, and Omar back in biblical time. A good description would be "The Polar Express" meets the "Book of Luke." After all, if a magic train ride can restore one boy's belief in Santa Claus, why can't an angel time-travel another boy back to Bethlehem, where he discovers the peace, joy (and danger!) of the very first Christmas? Twelve-year-old Oscar Olsen is missing his soldier Dad, and he wants nothing (repeat, nothing) to do with Christmas this year! He acts out his anger on his Mom, his friend, Melissa, and even the strange new kid in church, Albert. A young, inexperienced angel, still struggling to control her wings, appears in Oscar's bedroom. She whirls him back to 2,000 years ago, where he becomes Omar, an orphaned camel-boy, riding with three learned men. Omar is a brand-new person in the traditional nativity story, and he leads the reader to smell the stable, feel the camel's hair, and hear the bleating sheep. Young readers will be drawn into the boys' two parallel stories, told in alternating chapters. Without giving away the whole story, each chapter brings both boys closer to the great paradox of life-it is in giving, that we receive. Sacrifice is at the heart of both stories. Each chapter begins with an original drawing, further enhancing the story. Lots of cute picture books for little ones fill the bookstores at Christmas, but where is the book with deeper meaning for kids in the middle grades? This novella-length book can fill that gap. "Greater than Gold" is a fast-reading adventure story of camels and kings, deserts and Dads, and a slightly inept angel. The book makes a great stocking-stuffer gift that will enrich Christmas for young readers.

📒The Deep Hot Biosphere ✍ Thomas Gold
📝The Deep Hot Biosphere Book Synopsis : This book sets forth a set of truly controversial and astonishing theories: First, it proposes that below the surface of the earth is a biosphere of greater mass and volume than the biosphere the total sum of living things on our planet's continents and in its oceans. Second, it proposes that the inhabitants of this subterranean biosphere are not plants or animals as we know them, but heat-loving bacteria that survive on a diet consisting solely of hydrocarbons that is, natural gas and petroleum. And third and perhaps most heretically, the book advances the stunning idea that most hydrocarbons on Earth are not the byproduct of biological debris ("fossil fuels"), but were a common constituent of the materials from which the earth itself was formed some 4.5 billion years ago. The implications are astounding. The theory proposes answers to often-asked questions: Is the deep hot biosphere where life originated, and do Mars and other seemingly barren planets contain deep biospheres? Even more provocatively, is it possible that there is an enormous store of hydrocarbons upwelling from deep within the earth that can provide us with abundant supplies of gas and petroleum? However far-fetched these ideas seem, they are supported by a growing body of evidence, and by the indisputable stature and seriousness Gold brings to any scientific debate. In this book we see a brilliant and boldly original thinker, increasingly a rarity in modern science, as he develops potentially revolutionary ideas about how our world works.
📒Inca Gold ✍ Clive Cussler

📒Zero Regrets ✍ Apolo Ohno
📝Zero Regrets Book Synopsis : Over three consecutive Olympic games, Apolo Ohno has come to symbolize the very best of the competitive spirit—remaining equally gracious in victory and defeat, always striving to improve his performance, and appreciating the value of the hard work of training as much as any reward it might bring. In Zero Regrets, Apolo shares the inspiring personal story behind his remarkable success, as well as the hard-won truths and strategies he has discovered in good times and bad. Raised by his single father, an immigrant from Japan who often worked twelve-hour days, the young Apolo found it difficult to balance his enormous natural gifts as an athlete with a wild, rebellious streak. After making a name for himself as a promising young speed skater, his career was almost over before it began when his lack of preparation caused him to finish last at the U.S. Olympic trials in 1998. A life-changing week of solitary soul-searching at the age of fifteen led him to recommit himself to his training, and at the 1999 world junior championships he won first place overall—one of the most remarkable turnarounds in sports history. From that moment on, the world of speed skating had a new champion and Apolo was on his way to legendary status. Much more than an account of races won and lost, Zero Regrets is a compelling portrait of a father-and-son relationship that deepened over time and was based on respect, love, and faith in each other. For the first time, Apolo reveals what he knows about his long-absent mother; he makes us feel what it is like to face the best competitors on the planet with the eyes of millions of fans upon you; and he shares his secrets for achieving total focus and mental toughness, secrets that can be applied in situations well beyond sports. We learn the details of the unbelievably intense workout and diet that he endured while training for the 2010 Winter Olympics, a regime that literally reshaped his body and led to some of his most thrilling victories.

📒Captive In Iran ✍ Maryam Rostampour
📝Captive in Iran Book Synopsis : Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh knew they were putting their lives on the line. Islamic laws in Iran forbade them from sharing their Christian beliefs, but in three years, they’d covertly put New Testaments into the hands of twenty thousand of their countrymen and started two secret house churches. In 2009, they were finally arrested and held in the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran, a place where inmates are routinely tortured and executions are commonplace. In the face of ruthless interrogations, persecution, and a death sentence, Maryam and Marziyeh chose to take the radical—and dangerous—step of sharing their faith inside the very walls of the government stronghold that was meant to silence them. In Captive in Iran, two courageous Iranian women recount how God used their 259 days in Evin Prison to shine His light into one of the world’s darkest places, giving hope to those who had lost everything and showing love to those in despair.

📒Blue Gold ✍ Maude Barlow
📝Blue Gold Book Synopsis : In this “chilling, in-depth examination of a rapidly emerging global crisis” (In These Times), Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke, two of the most active opponents to the privatization of water show how, contrary to received wisdom, water mainly flows uphill to the wealthy. Our most basic resource may one day be limited: our consumption doubles every twenty years—twice the rate of population increase. At the same time, increasingly transnational corporations are plotting to control the world’s dwindling water supply. In England and France, where water has already been privatized, rates have soared, and water shortages have been severe. The major bottled-water producers—Perrier, Evian, Naya, and now Coca-Cola and PepsiCo—are part of one of the fastest-growing and least-regulated industries, buying up freshwater rights and drying up crucial supplies. A truly shocking exposé that is a call to arms to people around the world, Blue Gold shows in frightening detail why, as the vice president of the World Bank has pronounced, “The wars of the next century will be about water.”
📒More Precious Than Gold ✍ Jenny Doss
📝More Precious Than Gold Book Synopsis : This is the true story of a twelve-day journey my husband and I endured while our infant son, Joshua, was at death's door. What the Lord revealed to me, during those heart-wrenching days, changed me. He later used that knowledge to help me reach out to touch other's lives. That ministry became one of my life's greatest fulfillments. While no one wants to go through trials, life doesn't always give us that choice. Yet, it is often in unexpected crisis that we are given the opportunity for God to teach us things we've never known. From that knowledge, He desires to do remarkable things through us to help make an eternal difference in the lives of others. Throughout history, God has always used ordinary men and women in the midst of crisis to have an impact on their generation, and He is still doing so today. Jenny Doss went to the University of Montevallo in Alabama as an Art/Art History major and became a wife and mother of five. After raising her family, she perused her "other" calling to teach. Yet, Jenny's greatest mission, outside of her family, was when the Lord called her to become the founder and director of Sav-A-Life, Shelby, a ministry that has touched countless lives. Three years later, God changed her direction, and she helped open the Kingwood Counseling Center where she taught counseling and served as a family counselor for almost a decade. Since 1993, she has also taught in private and fine arts schools. Jenny has been an advocate for the unborn, and has spoken before congregations and civic groups on a variety of subjects, including her testimony. And the ministry God raised up through her more than two decades ago is still touching lives and saving souls.
