Duration: 14:53:48
The shocks : From crisis to austerity ; The crisis in Eurozone ; Brave new world -- The shifts : How finance became fragile ; How the world economy shifted -- The solutions : Orthodoxy overthrown ; Fixing finance ; Long journey ahead ; Mending a bad marriage -- Fire next time.
"The book identifies the origin of the crisis in the complex interaction between globalization, hugely destabilizing global imbalances and our dangerously fragile financial system. In the eurozone, these sources of instability were multiplied by the tragically defective architecture of the monetary union. It also shows how much of the orthodoxy that shaped monetary and financial policy before the crisis occurred was complacent and wrong. In doing so, it mercilessly reveals the failures of the financial, political and intellectual elites who ran the system. The book also examines what has been done to reform the financial and monetary systems since the worst of the crisis passed. "Are we now on a sustainable course?" Wolf asks. "The answer is no." He explains with great clarity why "further crises seem certain" and why the management of the eurozone in particular "guarantees a huge political crisis at some point in the future." Wolf provides far more ambitious and comprehensive plans for reform than any currently being implemented"-- Provided by publisher.

Voice of a prophet [electronic resource] : who speaks for God?

Tozer, A. W. (Aiden Wilson), 1897-1963, author.
Carol Stream : Oasis Audio, 2014.

Narrator not specified.
Duration: 05:12:40
During his ministry, which included extended pastorates in Chicago and Toronto, Dr. Tozer was often referred to as a prophet. That doesn't mean he predicted future events, but rather spoke Gods truth to believers and the culture, even if it meant disrupting the status quo. Even in the Bible, prophets were much more likely to hold God's people and their leaders accountable to the truth of God's Word than they were to foretell the future. The encouragement in Voice of a Prophet is that the church today is in desperate need of the kind of prophet Tozer embodied and describes here. Using the lives of such prophets as Elijah, Elisha and John the Baptist, Tozer underscores the importance of the ministry of the prophet in today's church.

Moody, Dwight L..

Read by Bill Wallace.
Duration: 03:26:15
Perhaps the greatest American evangelist of the nineteenth century, Dwight L. Moody inspired millions with his sermons. Although a century and a half separates us from his impassioned explications of the Bible, Moody's ardor rings with overtones of today's fundamentalist Christianity and can offer critical clues to understanding the orthodox religious outlook still dramatically influencing our culture in the twenty-first century. Moody explains why Christians believe that the Bible is invariably correct ("None of the other religious volumes, like the Koran, that claim a divine origin, agree with common sense."); who resides in heaven ("The inhabitants of Heaven will be select."); that they are set apart from the larger culture ("We must go against the current of this world."); and more.

"Empress Elizabeth of Austria, known as "Sisi," is the Princess Diana of nineteenth-century Europe. Famously beautiful, as captured in a portrait with diamond stars in her hair, she is unfulfilled in her marriage to the older Emperor Franz Joseph. Sisi has spent years evading the stifling formality of royal life on her private train or yacht or, whenever she can, on the back of a horse. Captain Bay Middleton is dashing, young, and the finest horseman in England. He is also impoverished, with no hope of buying the horse needed to win the Grand National--until he meets Charlotte Baird. A clever, plainspoken heiress whose money gives her a choice among suitors, Charlotte falls in love with Bay, the first man to really notice her, for his vulnerability as well as his glamour. When Sisi joins the legendary hunt organized by Earl Spencer in England, Bay is asked to guide her on the treacherous course. Their shared passion for riding leads to an infatuation that threatens the growing bond between Bay and Charlotte, and all of their futures. This brilliant new novel by Daisy Goodwin is a lush, irresistible story of the public lives and private longings of grand historical figures"-- Provided by publisher.
