When Bradford T. Young found himself at the epicenter of Florida's overheated real estate market, he plunged into the universal greed trap - a craving quest for piles of money, corrupting power and seductive women. But that was before his guilty nightmares began . . . and before Amanda "Mandy" Grant, a tabloid investigative reporter, unwittingly placed a mystical spell over him. Brad is soon forced to make a life-altering choice - slide further into an abyss of greed or pursue a fleeting opportunity to earn Mandy's love which he also covets. Brad's quandary intensifies when Mandy's investigation uncovers and exposes the illicit inner workings of the corrupt organization he now works for. As Mandy garners the wrath of a New York mobster and his evil empire, only Brad as a "company insider" can save her from the unfathomable terror that follows. In a cunning cat and mouse gambit, Brad must race to beat organized crime at its own wicked game, as David pitted against Goliath with death or love hanging in the balance.

This book argues that Greene's writings have much to teach us about fighting evil here and now, and about endeavoring to live a worthy life. Greene related stories of evil persons who destroyed the freedom of others and of a few simple people who fought them. Through these stories he showed us three basic truths: first, evil exists; second, it is possible to fight it; and third, one may attain wisdom and sometimes a very limited glory by undertaking such a struggle.

There are many devotional books available containing brief, daily inspirations that benefit all who read them. This book is different in two respects. The first is obvious: it contains two readings per day—732 in all. The second, more important difference is that the author wanted to do more than offer inspiration; this would make this book no different than so many others. The messages in the book are study sketches in that the content is not only inspirational, but also educational, challenging, and encouraging. Most of these writings were based on author Michael J. Akers’s teaching of adult Bible studies for more than thirty years and learning what really brought adults to want to deepen their knowledge and application of the Word of God.
