SUMMARY:

The Prize recounts the panoramic history of oil -- and the struggle for wealth power that has always surrounded oil. This struggle has shaken the world economy, dictated the outcome of wars, and transformed the destiny of men and nations. The Prize is as much a history of the twentieth century as of the oil industry itself. The canvas of this history is enormous -- from the drilling of the first well in Pennsylvania through two great world wars to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and Operation Desert Storm. The cast extends from wildcatters and rogues to oil tycoons, and from Winston Churchill and Ibn Saud to George Bush and Saddam Hussein. The definitive work on the subject of oil and a major contribution to understanding our century, The Prize is a book of extraordinary breadth, riveting excitement -- and great importance.

SUMMARY:

A writer once said, “The heights attained by great men were not by sudden flight, but they, while others were sleeping, were toiling away in the night.” While some men were busy paying the price, others were busy sleeping and wasting away their precious time and opportunity. And the disparity is the heights attained by these men.

SUMMARY:

The book takes the reader through the story of a man who left the glamour of a boxing career and professional entertaining to follow a faith so deep you will be inspired to examine your own faith. John Rhame was a professional fighter and entertainer, but to me he will always be my pastor. As a young boy growing up in the church, his love for God and for people was a great example and influence in my life and future ministry. In reading this book, you will learn about what the heart of a pastor truly looks like, as that is what John Rhame was all about. Newell Smith, District Superintendent, Philadelphia District Church of the Nazarene I met Rev. Rhame only a few times as young Christian, but his love for God was always evident and impactful. His musical talent and the story of his life were rich and colorful and left a lasting impression on all who experienced it. His greatest contribution in my life came through the influence of his daughter Carolyn, the author of this book, who shared his legacy of love with me and many other young people that she served in our youth group. M. Kim Smith, District Superintendent, Iowa District Church of the Nazarene In life, we long for a hero to follow--someone who is bigger than life; But the real gift is when that hero humbly points us to Someone beyond ourselves; Someone who created us for greater purpose and meaning in life. This book reveals the story of what God can do in and through and with the life of a man who is fully surrendered to Him. Allan Greer, Senior Pastor, Parkway Place Baptist Church, Little Rock Not all stories have an end but every story has a beginning. This is a story of one mans beginning and decision which made an everlasting impact on generations. Joel Studdard, Student Ministry Pastor, Parkway Place Baptist Church, Little Rock
