Inspired by true events, The Moment of Truth finds a Texan art student facing down life, death, love, and glory in the bullfighting rings of 1950s Mexico. Texan art student Kathleen Boyd has been dreaming about becoming a matador since her beloved father took her to the bullfighting ring when she was just a child. Now a young woman, her disapproving fiancé and her practical-minded mother see her dream only as a foolish flight of fancy. Nevertheless, Kathleen relocates to Mexico and finds herself under the instruction of Fermin, a retired matador who is intent on asserting his dominance in their partnership. Though taking on a female apprentice is unheard of, Fermin sees Kathleen’s undeniable talent and promises that she’ll one day perform at the prestigious Plaza Mexico bullring. While Kathleen struggles to perform alongside the unwelcoming men of Mexico’s bullfighting scene, she is befriended by Julio, better known as El Cabrito—The Kid. Much to Fermin’s displeasure, not only does Julio show Kathleen techniques that defy his strict instruction, but a forbidden romance quickly ignites between them. As time passes, Kathleen’s confidence in her ability increases—though so too do her suspicions of Fermin’s intentions. She has become a sensation, selling out arenas as La Diosa Tejana, the Texan Goddess. But while Fermin gets rich, Kathleen’s pay remains pitiful and her instructor’s control over her life remains absolute. Will she always be a vehicle for another person’s success? Or will she finally face her own moment of truth and seize the success that she has worked toward for so long, in a world that has always belonged to men?

"What is truth?" Pilate turned to Jesus and asked a profound question. It is a question that continues to be debated in our day. But it is one that God has definitively answered in His written Word and ultimately revealed in the incarnate Word, Jesus Christ. It has been the duty and privilege of each successive generation of Christians to proclaim the truth of the gospel to a world that desperately needs to hear it. In this collection of sermons, Dr. Steven J. Lawson speaks into our cultural moment, helping Christians and skeptics alike to answer Pilate's age-old question.

We are woefully unprepared for our next major disaster—but the lessons we’ve learned post-9/11 in NYC can show all of America the way to true resilience “Miami Beach Devastated by Monster Cat 5 Hurricane Packing 200 mph Winds” “Times Square Incinerated by Homemade Nuclear Bomb” “Magnitude 9.0 Earthquake Reduces Downtown Seattle to Rubble” These aren’t actual headlines—but they could be. Even though they sound like descriptions of next summer’s blockbuster movies, each of these worst-case scenarios is a real threat—a threat for which America is hugely underprepared. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This is not a book about disasters. Instead, Moment of Truth will tell you what these genuine threats mean for society as a whole, as well as for your region or town—or you. All we have to do is open our eyes and look beyond the “brick wall of hope” that clouds our vision in collective denial. In addition to advice for government, Moment of Truth contains practical steps that you can take now keep you and your family safe in the face of the next catastrophe. Because it may come down to just you.

The Managerial Moment of Truth

The Essential Step in Helping People Improve Performance

The Managerial Moment of Truth explains a powerful new concept that can dramatically improve performance and increase productivity, at no cost, in virtually any company or organization. Developed by organizational consultant and bestselling author Robert Fritz and proven in practice by coauthor Bruce Bodaken, the chairman, president, and CEO of Blue Shield of California, the book provides a dynamic technique to help people face up to reality and confront the truth in order to correct mistakes, learn from past performance, and adjust processes to build a more successful organization. Given human nature, most managers, when faced with the harsh facts of substandard performance, tend to soften the truth with their direct reports, so as not to offend or upset them. They tend to avoid mentioning mistakes, missed dates, an incomplete project, unacceptable quality of work, and the like. Then, if the problem becomes egregious, the manager may suddenly overreact with a contentious confrontation that results in little long-term behavior change. Or else the manager will try to work around the substandard performance, shifting the workload to top performers on the team rather than addressing reality directly with the person concerned. Bodaken and Fritz provide a step-by-step approach for continuous improvement, in which managers deal with performance issues early on, to help employees face the truth without being made to feel denigrated, inept, or incompetent -- which would only defeat the desired goal of improvement. Moreover, this approach also greatly enhances the manager's own career success. When managers understand and use this practice, they can produce more top performers and add from 25 to 40 percent more actual capacity to their organization. At Blue Shield of California, for example, more than one thousand managers have been trained in this approach, with impressive, measurable results, helping the company become one of the fastest-growing health care plans in the state. Other companies, all at the top of their industries, are now using MMOT with great success. As widely acclaimed author Peter Senge notes in his foreword, "This is not a book with just a bunch of 'good ideas.' It is a call to a simple but transformative practice, vital to building an organization truly worthy of people's highest achievement."

In the first book of Lauren Barnholdt's captivating The Moment of Truth series, Lyla discovers that trusting her head might be easy but trusting her heart is a whole other matter. Lyla McAfee had all but forgotten the email that she wrote to herself freshman year and scheduled to be delivered right before graduation—the one promising that she'd learn to trust by the end of senior year. But when she receives it the first morning of her senior trip to Florida, her life is sent into a tailspin. Soon she's questioning her seemingly perfect relationship with her boyfriend, Derrick, her attraction to the school player, Beckett, and whether ending her friendship with Aven and Quinn, her former BFFs, was one of the biggest mistakes of her life. Each book in this trilogy is told from the perspective of a different girl—Lyla, Aven, and Quinn—former best friends who, back in freshman year, wrote emails to their future selves about the one thing they hope to accomplish before they graduate. Over the course of the series, each girl will learn about life, love, and the truth about the fight that ended their perfect friendship.

A half-century into the conflict between Israel and Palestine, Israel's Occupation at Fifty brings together eminent political leaders, scholars, and activists for a wide-ranging, at times contentious, and remarkably fruitful discussion of the region's fate. A simple observation that ought to astonish more than it does: the Israel-Palestine conflict continues. A century on from the Balfour Declaration, 50 years since the fateful war of 1967, and a full decade into the brutal siege of Gaza, Israel's occupation is more entrenched than ever while Palestinian self-determination has never been so remote. This is a record that should inspire intellectual humility as well as political urgency; a readiness to acknowledge that, on myriad questions bearing on the prospects for resolving the conflict, compelling arguments can be advanced from multiple sides. This book brings together an unprecedented wealth of expertise--encompassing political leaders, preeminent scholars, and dedicated activists from Israel, Palestine, and abroad--in direct critical exchange on the issues at the heart of the world's most intractable war. Has Israel's vast settlement enterprise made a Palestinian state impossible? Can the Palestinian leadership end the occupation? Is Israel's rule in the Palestinian territories a form of apartheid? What role must the United States play in securing a just peace? In a series of compelling, illuminating and at times no-holds-barred debates, leading authorities tackle these and other problems, exposing myths, challenging preconceptions, and providing a more sober and informed basis for political action.

With the Christian vote more widely polarized than ever, Marc Nuttle offers a must-read book for conservative America. In Moment of Truth Nuttle exposes the escalating trends in our government toward regulation and overspending while taking a critical look at the increasing power of Trade Unions, and the corroding effects of the United Nations. He speaks especially to the 28 million small business owners in the country-80 percent of whom are Republican and 65 percent of whom are evangelical- arguing that these policies will be devastating to them while putting America's economic future in jeopardy. Ultimately, Nuttle demonstrates the conclusive dangers of big government when controlled by those who would lead this nation toward an irretrievable tipping point.

The Moment of Truth & The Arrival of the Stupor of Death If only Id taken the path of the messenger! Lest We Say, If only Id been Muslim enough! This book is not a philosophical, political, biographical, or historical account of anybody nor is it an account of the United States elections, which catapulted a pharaoh-qarun like Donald Trump to become the president of the United States of America, but it is a plea to the genus of man, believers, and atheists, Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, and Muslim, including the fascist new president of the USA to return to the Lord of Moses, who spoke to Moses from beyond the seventh sky, Verily! I am Allah! La ilaha illa Ana (none has the right to be worshipped but I), so worship me, and perform as-salat (prayers) for my remembrance. O Musa (Moses)! Verily! I am Allah, the Lord of Al-Alamin (mankind, jinn, and all that exists)! Verily, the hour is coming, and my will is to keep it hidden so that every person may be rewarded for that which he strives. There is no doubt, this is a perfect creed which served its time but was complemented and superseded first by Christianity and then both were later superseded by the last and universal faith, Islam, the message Mohammad preached to humanity. No wonder the name of the Lord (Allah), which he taught Moses and to all, is the simplest that can be said easily by an infant starting to speak. Any other name does not apply to nor fit him of glory!
