FROM THE AUTHOR OF NUMEROUS BOOKS, INCLUDING SUPERNATURAL ACCESS AND HELL'S TOXIC TRIO God's miracles are often uncommon, unordinary, and unusual. This book will challenge you to let God interrupt the mundane in your life so that you can experience unusual blessings, favor, and more. God wants to do extraordinary things in and through His people. He performed uncommon miracles throughout the Book of Acts, revealing a rare dimension of His power that brought miraculous results, and He wants to do the same today. In this sixty-day journey Ryan LeStrange challenges readers to let God interrupt the mundane patterns in their lives and reveal unusual measures of His power. With revelation from Scripture and confessions to declare each day, this book will help readers prepare their hearts for unusual miracles to become a reality in their lives--unusual blessings, unusual favor, unusual breakthroughs, and more. God's people were not born to live mediocre lives void of the power of God. They were designed to do kingdom exploits. This book is a tool that will help readers break the hold of the average, embrace God's supernatural possibilities, and walk in extraordinary power.

What does it take for a society to be able to innovate? The question is crucial today when an increasing share of world patents are taken out by countries such as Japan, South Korea and China, which have limited energy resources and cultures very different from those in the West. However, most previous studies of the beginnings of industrialization have focused on the resources and institutions of Britain alone. As a result, they have missed the lessons to be learned from casting the net more widely so as to examine all regions of the North-Atlantic community. This book pinpoints the surprising differences between innovating and non-innovating regions. Protection of property rights, a practical ideology and abundant resources were not sufficient to spark accelerated innovation. The key to the Industrial Revolution, this study shows through case studies and rigorous verification, was the effect of expanding social networks on people’s willingness to cooperate. Language standardization permitted the widening of circles of cooperation to encompass individuals with increasingly different sets of knowledge. The result was an unprecedented burst of what some linguists have called “double-scope blending” – the integration of hitherto unrelated concepts to create something new. These findings have important implications for corporate and government policy.

If Sitting Bull is the most famous Indian, Tecumseh is the most revered. Although Tecumseh literature exceeds that devoted to any other Native American, this is the first reliable biography--thirty years in the making--of the shadowy figure who created a loose confederacy of diverse Indian tribes that exted from the Ohio territory northeast to New York, south into the Florida peninsula, westward to Nebraska, and north into Canada. A warrior as well as a diplomat, the great Shawnee chief was a man of passionate ambitions. Spurred by commitment and served by a formidable battery of personal qualities that made him the principal organizer and the driving force of confederacy, Tecumseh kept the embers of resistence alive against a federal government that talked cooperation but practiced genocide following the Revolutionary War. Tecumseh does not stand for one tribe or nation, but for all Native Americans. Despite his failed attempt at solidarity, he remains the ultimate symbol of eavor and courage, unity and fraternity.
