The Newsmax Rising Bestsellers list will do more than stimulate your mind. These reads may challenge your beliefs, broaden your perspectives, excite your curiosities, or widen your imagination.

Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of Jan. 4, 2021:

  1. "The FBI Way: Inside the Bureau's Code of Excellence" by Frank Figliuzzi (Custom House). The FBI's former head of counterintelligence reveals the Bureau's field-tested playbook for unlocking individual and organizational excellence, via dramatic stories from his own storied career.
    Figliuzzi was the "Keeper of the Code," appointed the FBI's chief inspector by then-Director Robert Mueller. Charged with overseeing sensitive internal inquiries, shooting reviews, and performance audits, he ensured each employee met the Bureau's exacting standards of performance, integrity, and conduct. Here, Figliuzzi tells readers how to apply the lessons he's learned to their own lives: in business, management, and personal development. (Nonfiction)
  2. "They Turned the World Upside Down: A Storyteller's Journey With Those Who Dared to Follow Jesus" by Charles Martin (Thomas Nelson). The bestselling novelist delivers his second nonfiction effort, describing the lives of the disciples in the aftermath of the Resurrection and as they spread the message of the Gospel, leading up to Paul's ministry in Thessalonica. Martin also illuminates key moments from Scripture. According to the publisher, "In the first century, believer didn't just mean someone who heard and agreed with Jesus; it meant someone who acted on that belief. And when the outside world saw the faith of these new believers, they declared 'they turned the world upside down' (Acts 17:6). That's the kind of believer Charles Martin wants us to be.'' (Nonfiction)
  3. "The Eagles of Heart Mountain: A True Story of Football, Incarceration, and Resistance in World War II America" by Bradford Pearson (Atria Books). In the spring of 1942, the U.S. forced 120,000 Japanese Americans from their homes in California, Oregon, Washington, and Arizona and sent them to incarceration camps across the West. Nearly 14,000 of them landed on the outskirts of Cody, Wyoming, at the base of Heart Mountain. Pearson tells how behind barbed wire fences, the camp's high school football team, the Eagles, started its first season and finished it — undefeated — crushing the competition from nearby, predominantly white high schools. Amid the excitement, the federal government began drafting men from the camps for the front lines — including some of the Eagles. As the team's second season kicked off, the athletes faced a choice to either join the Army or resist the draft. (Nonfiction)
  4. "Last Second in Dallas" by Josiah Thompson (University Press of Kansas). In this follow-up to his 1967 book, "Six Seconds in Dallas," Thompson reveals major new forensic discoveries that overturn previously accepted "facts" about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. According to the publisher, he presents "incontrovertible proof'' that JFK was killed in a crossfire — with two shots to the head from opposite directions in the final second of the assault. The book also contains frames from the 8mm film shot by Abraham Zapruder, reproduced at the highest clarity ever published. (Nonfiction)
  5. "Embrace the Suck: The Navy SEAL Way to an Extraordinary Life" by Brent Gleeson (Hachette Go). Gleeson, a combat veteran and award-winning entrepreneur, uses Navy SEAL principles to transform everyday life. Through storytelling, behavioral science research, and self-deprecating humor, the author shows how to reassess values, remove temptation, and build discipline to help achieve individual goals. (Nonfiction)
