How can an unholy people stand before a holy God? Who is God, and what is his relationship to his creation? And how can we know him? In Exodus 3, Moses saw a bush that was burning yet was not consumed by the flames. When he turned to look at it, God gave him one of the most profound theology lessons recorded in the Bible. There, God revealed himself in a remarkable way, and as Dr. R.C. Sproul writes, ´´His revelation in the burning bush continues to have relevance for Christians today.´´ 1. Language: English.

The Leadership Genius of George W. Bush:10 Commonsense Lessons from the Commander in Chief Carolyn B. Thompson/ Jim Ware
Scott McClellan belonged to Bush´s select inner circle of trusted advisers during one of the most challenging, contentious periods of recent history. Over a period of more than seven years, he witnessed, day-to-day, exactly how the presidency veered off course, not only by its decision to topple Saddam Hussein, but by an embrace of confrontational politics in the face of an increasingly partisan Washington and a hostile media. In this refreshingly clear-eyed book, McClellan provides his unique perspective on what happened and why it happened the way it did, including the Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina, and two hotly contested presidential campaigns. He gives listeners a candid look into who George W. Bush is and what he believes, and explores the lessons this presidency offers the American people as we prepare to elect a new leader. 1.

The forthright, fascinating memoir of Peter Moody, trainer of Black Caviar and one of Australia´s most high-profile and best-liked racing identities.The classic story of a boy from the bush who worked his way from outback Queensland all the way to Royal Ascot. As a kid growing up in tiny Wyandra, Peter Moody learned to ride almost before he could walk. Horses were part of life, and as a teenager working for local trainers he learned many lessons - some of them painful - as he built his understanding of them. A mate´s introduction got him a stablehand´s job for the legendary trainer Tommy Smith in Sydney, and his life changed forever.His journey was to see him learn from some of the greatest minds in racing as he plied his trade in Sydney, Brisbane and finally Melbourne, establishing his own highly successful stables, Moody Racing. One of the biggest innovators and risk takers in this country´s turf history, Moody won four premierships in Melbourne, the Mecca of Australian racing. But to the wider public he´s best known as the man who gave us the phenomenal Black Caviar. His account of her career is unique. He was, quite simply, the man who knew her best.From outback childhood to strapper, foreman and then on to premiership-winning trainer and the guiding force behind the most famous horse of recent times, and finally to his clash with officialdom that prompted him to retire in the deepest frustration, Peter´s autobiography gives a hugely entertaining, fascinating and authentic insight into one of the largest characters in Australian sport. While much has been written about Moody´s career and legacy, it was fellow trainer Caulfield Cup winner Jim Mason who perhaps said it best: ´He´s like a champion horse. Occasionally something comes along that´s just better than everything else. That´s Pete.´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ben Oxenbould.
