Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Here’s What Book Sales Tell Us About Which Presidential Candidates People Care About, And Which They Don’t

If book sales are a metric for how interested voters are in presidential candidates — which, considering the voter is actually paying to hear the candidate’s thoughts, they seem to be — then Cory Booker and Julian Castro will have a hard time gaining traction.

Meanwhile, Pete Buttigieg could me more than just a flash in the pan, and coffee magnate Howard Schultz shouldn’t be written off.

Book sales compiled by Publishers Marketplace, and based on NPD BookScan figures, have former Vice President Joe Biden in the lead selling 300,000 copies of his 2017 book Promise Me, Dad.

But far-left candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren combined outpaced him at 407,000 books. Both wrote books both before and after the 2016 election, and Sanders’ 2018 book did far worse than his first one, losing out to Warren’s 2017 book 26,000 to 82,000.

Booker and Kamala Harris are often put in the same class by pundits, as young, black senators, but book sales suggest that Booker doesn’t have the same star power. Booker’s 2016 book sold only 14,000 copies, compared to Harris selling 43,000 of her 2019 tome.

Andrew Yang, an out-of-nowhere political outsider running for the Democratic nomination for president, has sold 17,000 copies of his 2014 and 2018 books, besting the entire second tier of Democratic candidates who have dedicated years to public service, including Booker, Amy Klobuchar, John Hickenlooper, Julian Castro, and Jay Inslee.

Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg’s 2019 book Shortest Way Home has sold 27,000 copies, suggesting he is more than just a media creation. By comparison, Castro is running for president despite his book released just last year, An Unlikely Journey, selling only 5,000 copies. Klobuchar’s 2015 book sold only 7,000 copies.

Beto O’Rourke has not written a major political book, but is on the chart because of a 2011 paperback, Dealing Death and Drugs, an argument to legalize marijuana by highlighting the dangerous conduct of underground cartels.

When Starbucks co-founder Howard Schultz launched his presidential bid — launching his book at the same time — it was widely painted in the media as a flop, with Democrats saying he could play the role of spoiler. But book sales suggest that voters have an appetite for what he was selling. Publishers Marketplace said Schultz sold an impressive 70,000 books in the short time it’s been out.

Funny that you never mentioned "The Art Of The Deal " in your list.  Other than the president's sensible and realistic book ,I see the books written by these socialist democrats as pure folly and not to be believed . Amazing how they can be caught in a lie and have the unique ability to be able to effectually lie their way out of it . By telling another lie to cover the one they just told !   :-(
