    Not What You Think not only blows the dust off dated misperceptions of this ancient book, it engages the problems of the Bible head-on - the parts that make modern readers squeamish, skeptical, and uncertain. Join Michael and Lauren as they explore the nature of the Bible - an ancient mosaic of story, literature, history, and poetry - and what it means for this generation and its relationship with God.

    When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the US Navy had a total of 111 submarines. It was mostly a collection of aging boats. Fortunately, with the war in Europe was already two years old and friction with Japan ever increasing, help from what would become known as the Silent Service in the Pacific was on the way: there were 73 of the new fleet submarines under construction. The Silent Service in World War II tells the story of America's intrepid underwater warriors in the words of the men who lived the war in the Pacific against Japan.

Media outlets frequently report that the economy is foremost among concerns of the average citizen, and according to traditional economic measures the United States is doing pretty well. The economy is growing steadily, the unemployment rate is below 5%, and on GDP per capita America still is one of the richest countries in the world.
