Below is a description breakdown of how the books put up for auction are evaluated.

Brand New – Has never been read and shows no wear

Like New – May have been read, but has no creasing or may be just be starting to crease on the spine. It has a nice tight spine, and little to no appearance of wear that I can see.

Very Good Condition – This book has been read and has slight to noticeable creasing on the spine. There may be minor wear to the edges from either being read or sitting on the shelf

Good Condition – This book has been read and may have creasing on the spine as well as shelf wear; may also have slight creasing on other parts of the book such as dog-eared pages, dents/scratches and or tilting/curve to the spine. May also have minor pen marks on the cover or pages.

Acceptable Condition – Book has been read and has creasing on the spine as well as other parts of the book; this book shows a lot of gentle wear, perhaps some very minor water damage or pen marks.

I only sell books that have plenty of reading left in them and that I would have bought myself. I do not sell books with missing or loose pages, or books that are severely damaged.

Shipping will be actual cost depending on your location and I will therefore need your zip in order to estimate.

Wish I could post pictures of the books...

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

God & Empire by John Dominic Crossan
“At the heart of the Bible is a moral and ethical call to fight unjust superpowers, whether they are Babylon, Rome, or even America.

From the divine punishment and promise found in Genesis through the revolutionary messages of Jesus and Paul, John Dominic Crossan reveals what the Bible has to say about land and economy, violence and retribution, justice and peace, and, ultimately, redemption. In contrast to the oppressive Roman military occupation of the first century, he examines the meaning of the non-violent Kingdom of God prophesized by Jesus and the equality advocated by Paul to the early Christian churches. Crossan contrasts these messages of peace with the misinterpreted apocalyptic vision from the Book of Revelation, which has been misrepresented by modern right-wing theologians and televangelists to justify U.S. military actions in the Middle East.

In God and Empire Crossan surveys the Bible from Genesis to Apocalypse, or the Book of Revelation, and discovers a hopeful message that cannot be ignored in these turbulent times. The first-century Pax Romana, Crossan points out, was in fact a "peace" won through violent military action. Jesus preached a different kind of peace—a peace that surpasses all understanding—and a kingdom not of Caesar but of God.

The Romans executed Jesus because he preached this Kingdom of God, a kingdom based on peace and justice, over the empire of Rome, which ruled by violence and force. For Jesus and Paul, Crossan explains, peace cannot be won the Roman way, through military victory, but only through justice and fair and equal treatment of all people.”

A Brilliant Solution: Inventing the American Constitution [Paperback] Berkin
A rich narrative portrait of post-revolutionary America and the men who shaped its political future
Though the American Revolution is widely recognized as our nation's founding story, the years immediately following the war—when our government was a disaster and the country was in a terrible crisis—were in fact the most crucial in establishing the country's independence. The group of men who traveled to Philadelphia in the summer of 1787 had no idea what kind of history their meeting would make. But all their ideas, arguments, and compromises—from the creation of the Constitution itself, article by article, to the insistence that it remain a living, evolving document—laid the foundation for a government that has surpassed the founders' greatest hopes. Revisiting all the original historical documents of the period and drawing from her deep knowledge of eighteenth-century politics, Carol Berkin opens up the hearts and minds of America's founders, revealing the issues they faced, the times they lived in, and their humble expectations of success.

The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin [Hardcover] Mansfield/Holland
She stepped onto the world stage as the Republican vice-presidential nominee in the election of 2008. Previously, she had only been a small-town mayor and the governor of a state with slightly more than half a million people. Still, there was something about her. She was pretty, fierce in her conservatism and she seemed undaunted by the slings and arrows of national politics. And there was something else, as well: there was a moral force that seemed to shape her life. As the world grew to know Sarah Palin throughout the 2008 campaign and in her subsequent public appearances and book, people began to see the force behind her: a deep, lifelong Christian faith. This faith was the lens through which she viewed the world, the bedrock of her politics, and even a primary influence upon her personality.

To understand Sarah Palin, it is essential to understand her faith. What faith principles, then, impact Sarah Palin's politics, and what are their implications for the Republican Party and the nation as a whole? These questions and more are answered in the fascinating new book by New York Times bestselling author Stephen Mansfield and his co-author David Holland. These authors were given extensive access to Palin's pastors, advisors, friends and family and it has allowed them to capture the moving story of Palin's faith, as well as the meaning of that faith for American politics and culture.

The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism [Paperback] Keller
Timothy Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, addresses the frequent doubts that skeptics and non-believers bring to religion. Using literature, philosophy, anthropology, pop culture, and intellectual reasoning, Keller explains how the belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a sound and rational one. To true believers he offers a solid platform on which to stand against the backlash toward religion spawned by the Age of Skepticism. And to skeptics, atheists, and agnostics he provides a challenging argument for pursuing the reason for God.

The remarkable New York Times bestseller by the "C.S. Lewis for the 21st century" (Newsweek).

A New York Times bestseller people can believe in-by a "pioneer of the new urban Christians" (Christian Today magazine).
