EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Holy Bible has long been one of the top selling books in the world. People view the Bible in many different ways. While Christians consider it to be the divine written Word of God, others consider it to be just another book. Regardless of how you view the Bible, it does set forth some pragmatic concepts about money and how it should be perceived. Money is obviously an important topic in the Bible since it is mentioned about three times more often than sin, four times more often than prayerand six times more often than the second coming of Jesus Christ! In fact, almost half of Jesus' parables were about money. The purpose of this book is to provide the reader some basic ideas and principles for investing and managing money as presented throughout the Bible.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In The Games People Play, Robert Ellis constructs a theology around the global cultural phenomenon of modern sport, paying particular attention to its British and American manifestations. Using historical narrative and social analysis to enter the debate on sport as religion, Ellis shows that modern sport may be said to have taken on some of the functions previously vested in organized religion. Through biblical and theological reflection, he presents a practical theology of sport's appeal and value, with special attention to the theological concept of transcendence. Throughout, he draws on original empirical work with sports participants and spectators. The Games People Play addresses issues often considered problematic in theological discussions of sport such as gender, race, consumerism, and the role of the modern media, as well as problems associated with excessive competition and performance-enhancing substances. As Ellis explains, Sporting journalists often use religious language in covering sports events. Salvation features in many a headline, and talk of moments of redemption is not uncommon. Perhaps, somewhere beyond the cliched hyperbole, there is some theological truth in all this after all.
