Overwhelmed with debt? There is hope and freedom for you no matter how big your problem. Skyrocketing debt has crippled and divided millions in this age of rampant credit, interest-only mortgages, and record loan defaults. The way out from under debt burdens is not a declaration of bankruptcy, but surrender to the Word of God. Becoming debt-free may seem an impossible dream for many, but it is actually an attainable goal according to Howard Dayton, president of Crown Financial Ministries. He overcame his own struggle with debt by applying God’s principles to managing his finances, principles he lays out in this practical, encouraging, never-give-up book.
Dave Ramsey knows what it’s like to have it all. By age twenty-six, he had established a four-million-dollar real estate portfolio, only to lose it by age thirty. He has since rebuilt his financial life and, through his workshops and his New York Times business bestsellers Financial Peace and More than Enough, he has helped hundreds of thousands of people to understand the forces behind their financial distress and how to set things right-financially, emotionally, and spiritually.
In this new edition of Financial Peace, Ramsey has updated his tactics and philosophy to show even more readers:
how to get out of debt and stay outthe KISS rule of investing—”Keep It Simple, Stupid”how to use the principle of contentment to guide financial decision makinghow the flow of money can revolutionize relationships
With practical and easy to follow methods and personal anecdotes, Financial Peace is the road map to personal control, financial security, a new, vital family dynamic, and lifetime peace.
Imogen Quy–rhymes with why–is the witty, compassionate, and relentlessly inquisitive college nurse at St. Agatha’s College, Cambridge University. Unfortunately, St. Agatha’s has seen better days: Its financial affairs are in shambles, and the school is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy.
That is, until billionaire financier and St. Agatha’s College alum Sir Julius Farran decides to pay his alma mater a visit. Things are looking up for St. Agatha’s….but when Sir Julius suddenly dies in questionable circumstances, St. Agatha’s is in danger of closing forever. A nurse is a natural receiver of confidences, and Imogen soon learns that Sir Julius had far more enemies than friends. Her curiosity is initially piqued, but soon turns to alarm when Julius’s equally unpleasant son-in-law is found murdered. The case takes on particular urgency because Imogen’s former flame, Andrew Duncombe, had been working as Sir Julius’s right-hand man. Imogen must work what out really happened before Andrew is implicated in the murders–or becomes the next victim.
In her first case in more than a decade, Imogen Quy calls upon her clear thinking and insight into human nature to seek not only truth but justice. Readers will delight in the return of this “exemplary amateur sleuth” (Publishers Weekly) from a brilliant novelist in the best tradition of Dorothy L. Sayers and Josephine Tey.
Recent movements such as the Tea Party and anti-tax “constitutional conservatism” lay claim to the finance and taxation ideas of America’s founders, but how much do we really know about the dramatic clashes over finance and economics that marked the founding of America? Dissenting from both right-wing claims and certain liberal preconceptions, Founding Finance brings to life the violent conflicts over economics, class, and finance that played directly, and in many ways ironically, into the hardball politics of forming the nation and ratifying the Constitution—conflicts that still continue to affect our politics, legislation, and debate today.
Mixing lively narrative with fresh views of America’s founders, William Hogeland offers a new perspective on America’s economic infancy: foreclosure crises that make our current one look mild; investment bubbles in land and securities that drove rich men to high-risk borrowing and mad displays of ostentation before dropping them into debtors’ prisons; depressions longer and deeper than the great one of the twentieth century; crony mercantilism, war profiteering, and government corruption that undermine any nostalgia for a virtuous early republic; and predatory lending of scarce cash at exorbitant, unregulated rates, which forced people into bankruptcy, landlessness, and working in the factories and on the commercial farms of their creditors. This story exposes and corrects a perpetual historical denial—by movements across the political spectrum—of America’s all-important founding economic clashes, a denial that weakens and cheapens public discourse on American finance just when we need it most.
