A La Carte (7/17)

Here’s an interesting story from Christian Week. “The extravagant wealth and power former gang member Michael “Bull” Roberts had as one of Canada’s wealthiest drug lords reads likes a fantasy. But the road which led him there is the stuff of nightmares.”
Dug Down Deep
Josh Harris gives the title and topic of his forthcoming book.
Crocs on their Last Legs
The world’s ugliest shoes may soon be no more. “The company had expanded to meet demand, but financially pressed customers cut back. Last year the company lost $185.1 million, slashed roughly 2,000 jobs and scrambled to find money to pay down millions in debt. Now it’s stuck with a surplus of shoes, and its auditors have wondered if it can stay afloat. It has until the end of September to pay off its debt.”

CBD has a couple of noteworthy deals in their Fabulous Friday this week. Alistair Begg’s Pathway to Freedom is on sale for just $3.99, the collector’s edition of Fireproof is on for $14.99 and there is a book and CD gift set of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe for just $4.99.
