Can you justify your faith? To put it simply, this is a book of questions designed for two purposes. One, to challenge the integrity and convictions of oneâ s religious faith. And two, to give people of faith the opportunity to explain to people without why their beliefs are sane, rational and justifiable. Think of this as the ultimate self-help book for learning to critically think about the reasons why you choose to believe in a God. This book is dedicated to YOU, whoever you may be and regardless of whatever you may or may not believe in. This book is dedicated to all of us as an intellectually maturing society and a globally united species. If dedication to unbiased compassion is honestly our goal and we are indeed here for the happiness, well being and benefit of our fellow man, then I hope this book will be considered an invaluable tool for destroying the barriers that regularly impede our ability and desire to openly communicate and relate to one another. Is Your Faith Up to the Challenge is a mirror for the conscience and the intellect that will unrelentingly force the reader, if they are confident enough to read it, to acknowledge the honest reflection of their true beliefs. Without a doubt this will be an experience that will be difficult for many to accept as it will most assuredly shake the very foundations of the most fundamental ideas about faith and religion that millions of people build their lives on. I would imagine that it would be no understatement to say that your faith is likely to be irrevocably diminished if you have the courage to address these questions honestly and in their entirety, not because of any piece of information contained within these pages, but rather because of the answers I suspect most of us already believe in our hearts to be true. To the best of my knowledge this book, in conjunction with its related web site www.justify-your-faith.com, is a one of a kind effort designed to inspire people of all religious faiths to share the personal reasons for their beliefs and to think with their own natural intelligence and good common senses as well as their heart in order to postulate the most productive, honest and complete views of the world they live in. There is no doubt such a work will generate a fair amount of contention. I only wish that we can find the common decency in ourselves to treat our inevitable disagreements with compassion and maturity.

Have you ever thought, “Wow, I want to be a Christian like that, but I just don’t know how”? Or maybe you’ve wondered how God can love you and forgive all of the mistakes you’ve made. Just remember that no one is perfect, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23, NKJV). This book is here to help. Not only do Karen and Matthew share their struggles with faith and purpose, but they show the reader how to change their thinking and how to challenge themselves, one challenge at a time, to become a more authentic Christian, on fire for God. From “The Mirror Challenge” (NOT Karen’s favorite…) to “The Prayer Challenge,” and all of the inspirational stories in-between, you will read about how God can and will change a person’s heart. Discover how He will always be there no matter the situation and how He can surprise His children with goodness in even the smallest of daily situations. All it takes is a desire to let Him into your heart with faith and a willingness to let Him change you from the inside, out. Are you up for the challenge?

ETHAN:I'm not used to anyone having the upper hand over me, and in a single night, Sean Wright rescues me twice. That's why he intrigues me--why for the first time, I want another man. I'm used to getting what I want, and I don't plan to let anything stop me. Only...he continues to get the best of me, and it only makes me want him more. When I start to see Sean's not just good looks, hot sex, and constant competition, I realize I'm in over my head...and I might like it. He makes me laugh, and he understands the pain I feel over my past, a pain we share. Even more than that, somehow, Sean gets me, but I'm not going to lie and pretend that giving my heart doesn't scare me.SEAN:The night I rescued the presumably straight Ethan Harris...twice, I figured that would be the last time I saw him. However, he keeps finding his way back into my life and into my bed. Guess he wasn't as straight as I thought. Ethan's full of surprises, though, and being bi is just one of them. As cocky as he can be, he's also sharp and witty...and even when he's being his most arrogant self, he's charming as hell. He likes to win, but so do I. However, as we get to know each other, I realize there's more to us than the games we play in and out of the bedroom. It's a game neither of us have played before--one we could both wind up losing. And with our hearts on the line, the real question is, when push comes to shove, are we both up for the challenge?

"When the Dempsey patriarch suffers a heart attack, Lucas Dempsey steps up to keep the doors of the family restaurant open. The proverbial prodigal son returns home to Anchor Island?putting family first and his quest to make partner at his high-powered law firm on hold. Sporting a bruised ego after losing his fianc?e to his older brother, Lucas would rather walk on glass than spend six weeks within spitting distance of the happy couple. But family duty calls. And that duty includes working side-by-side with a tantalizing spitfire intent on driving him mad. Tough-as-nails boat mechanic Sid Navarro is happy to trade her tools for an apron to help the Dempseys in their time of need. That is, until she realizes she?ll be working alongside Lucas, the man she?s loved from afar since she first laid eyes on him in high school. Lucas could charm the paint off a schooner, but Sid knows she doesn?t fit his girl-next-door type. To show her true feelings would mean certain heartbreak, but the temptation of Lucas in her bed might be more than she can resist. After a rocky start punctuated by verbal barbs and exasperating arguments, things heat up between them?big-time?but their steamy affair turns more than casual in a matter of weeks. Sid?s life has become the dream she?s always wanted, and Lucas has fallen hard for the last woman he ever expected to love." -- from publisher's website.

Push yourself and your limits with over 60 of the toughest, most brutal physical challenges out there. Picture the scene: you're at the end of an epic race, your chest burns as your lungs fight to suck in enough oxygen to keep you moving. Your thighs ache as lactic acid courses through your muscles and you let out a chilling scream of "Shut up legs" in one final push to get to the finish line. If this sounds like your idea of hell, this ain't the book for you, but if you've experienced similar feelings and subsequent endorphin rush once you cross the line, UP FOR THE CHALLENGE should be right up your street. Sports writer Dominic Bliss has scoured the planet to bring you a selection of some of the most intense, hardcore sporting events around and dares you to have a go yourself. With 60 challenges covering all four corners of the globe and a range of different disciplines, discover events like the North Pole Marathon where competitors run the 26.4 miles in sub-zero conditions or the Atlantic Challenge, a race that sees you and a rowing boat attempt to cross the world's second largest ocean. Then there's the Simpson Desert Challenge, a five-day bike race across the Australian Outback, or the Tevis Cup, a 100-mile, 24-hour horse ride across California's Sierra Nevada mountains--an event where on average only around half the competitors make it to the finish line. Alongside the event profiles, which are illustrated with spectacular photography are interviews with some of the competitors and organisers, explaining what it's actually like putting yourself through some of the most extreme physical test known to man.

This paper outlines the challenge of developing an operational macroeconomic framework in Ethiopia consistent with the large envisaged scaling up of aid to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This paper describes an MDG scenario that addresses both microeconomic and macroeconomic constraints, such as the need to boost sustainable growth, limit Dutch disease, formulate an exit strategy from aid dependency, enhance public financial management (PFM), and expand the supply of skilled labor. The paper will argue that a carefully sequenced MDG strategy is essential so that the scaled-up aid and public spending will remain in line with Ethiopia's absorptive capacity.
