In the beginning of my study of the Bible, I spent hours trying to get the hang of it. I got lost reading long lists of names I couldn't even figure out how to pronounce. The book of Leviticus contained lists of rules and regulations.

Through the pages of "Adam's Rib Disorder" Deborah takes us on the roller coaster ride of her life. In down to earth, conversational prose, she guides us through the struggles of her life: child molestation, adultery, spousal abuse, two failed marriages, a cheating husband, her battle with cancer, and raising three children, all the while proving that even against the toughest of life's challenges - through tears, laughter, and perseverance - that with the strength of God all things can be overcome. This book will open the eyes of those who continue to walk in darkness. Don't be fooled, there is NO excuse for abuse of ANY kind. Written amid the turmoil it describes, this book honestly and immediately recounts Deborah's discovery of strength through God in a time when survival seemed almost impossible. In her time of emptiness when she realized that she could no longer survive on her own she finally turned to God instead of man. Deborah's memoir reveals how her eyes were opened and helps us understand, with her, that man had none of the answers she needed and that she would find wholeness and victory only through God.

Is there a "secret" formula in the Bible for personal wealth, health, and happiness? Is there an economic plan in the Bible for businesses, nations and the world to follow to ensure prosperity for its citizens? What does the Bible have to say about money and economics? The answers may surprise you. The Bible does have "secret" formulas for personal and national wealth. These formulas are "discovered" in this book. This book examines the economic thoughts, ideas, and philosophy of the Bible and elucidates how various biblical characters utilized these concepts to achieve unparalleled personal wealth. David and Solomon utilized the economic plan of the Bible to bring unprecedented wealth to the nation of ancient Israel. The transactions and economic principles used by the Patriarchs is examined in detail. The economic system proposed by Moses, intended for all nations and the world, is reviewed and its applicability for nations today is discussed. The book shows how Solomon and Ancient Israel achieved unprecedented prosperity, yet on Solomon's death the economy collapsed. The reasons for the prosperity and collapse are examined in detail. The book shows how the Persian Empire sunk the equivalent of over$1 Billion to form a Jewish State in Palestine. Yet, despite this, the Jewish State nearly failed. nehemiah, who some call the first turnaround manager, intervened and saved the state from extinction. The book also reveals the changes in these ideas and thoughts taught by Jesus Christ. Jesus used many specific coins of his day in his parables and teachings. In some cases, these teachings cannot be understood without understanding the role of the coins used in Jesus society. These parables are examined one by one in great detail to determine the exact meaning. The coins mentioned are illustrated and their role in the Judeo-Roman society of Jesus day is explained. The Bible mentions a millennium, a time when God will rule the earth. During this time the earth is prophesied to be very prosperous, with every person owning their own land and having an abundance of food, money, clothing, housing, and everything a human could want. What will the economic policies of Jesus government be to achieve this? These policies are clearly set forth in the Bible and are explained in this book. The Bible's "secret" formula for achieving personal wealth, health, and happiness has been hidden in plain sight for centuries. This book reveals this formula and shows how the reader can achieve personal wealth, health, and happiness by following the personal economic philosophy and guidelines of the Bible.

Als glUckliche Bestimmung gilt es mir heute, da das Schicksal mir zum Geburtsort gerade Braunau am Inn zuwies. Liegt doch dieses StAdtchen an der Grenze jener zwei deutschen Staaten, deren Wiedervereinigung mindestens uns JUngeren als eine mit allen Mitteln durchzufUhrende Lebensaufgabe erscheint! DeutschOsterreich mu wieder zurUck zum groen deutschen Mutterlande, und zwar nicht aus GrUnden irgendwelcher wirtschaftlichen ErwAgungen heraus. Nein, nein: Auch wenn diese Vereinigung, wirtschaftlich gedacht, gleichgUltig, ja selbst wenn sie schAdlich wAre, sie mUte dennoch stattfinden. Gleiches Blut gehOrt in ein gemeinsames Reich. Das deutsche Volk besitzt solange kein moralisches Recht zu kolonialpolitischer TAtigkeit, solange es nicht einmal seine eigenen SOhne in einem gemeinsamen Staat zu fassen vermag. Erst wenn des Reiches Grenze auch den letzten Deutschen umschliet, ohne mehr die Sicherheit seiner ErnAhrung bieten zu kOnnen, ersteht aus der Not des eigenen Volkes das moralische Recht zur Erwerbung fremden Grund und Bodens. Der Pflug ist dann das Schwert, und aus den TrAnen des Krieges erwAchst fUr die Nach welt das tAgliche Brot. So scheint mir dieses kleine GrenzstAdtchen das Symbol einer groen Aufgabe zu sein.
