Journey into the Whirlwind Book Excerpt:

A woman’s true account of eighteen years as a Soviet prisoner: “Not even Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich matches it.”—The New York Times Book Review In the late 1930s, Eugenia Ginzburg was a wife and mother, a schoolteacher and writer, and a longtime loyal Communist Party member. But like millions of others during Stalin’s reign of terror, she was arrested—on trumped-up charges of being a Trotskyist terrorist counter-revolutionary—and sentenced to prison. With sharp detail and an indefatigable spirit, Ginzburg recounts her arrest and the eighteen harrowing years she endured in Soviet prisons and labor camps, including two in solitary confinement. Her memoir is “a compelling personal narrative of survival” (The New York Times Book Review)—and one of the most important documents of Stalin’s brutal regime. “Deeply significant…intensely personal and passionately felt.”—Time “Probably the best account that has ever been published of…the prison and camp empire of the Stalin era.”—Book World Translated by Paul Stevenson and Max Hayward

In the Whirlwind of Jihad Book Excerpt:

In Uzbekistan, Central Asia's most populous country, Islam has been an ever-present factor in the lives of its people and a contentious force for political officials trying to build a secular and authoritarian government. In the Whirlwind of Jihad examines the intertwined and evolving relationships between religion, the state, and society in Uzbekistan from the late 1980s to today, encompassing the period from the collapse of the Soviet Union to the launch of the U.S.-led "war on terror" in neighboring Afghanistan. Martha Brill Olcott, the foremost expert on Central Asia, concludes that in an era of global communication and increased contact with international Islamic communities, a new role for Islam in Uzbekistan will ultimately emerge with implications beyond the country's borders.

Angels Walking Among Us Book Excerpt:

Tragedy and brokenness often take a person to the bottom of life to where they may then choose to look up to God for assistance and may thus be able to see the results of God moving in a particular situation. This book takes the reader from having a life-changing experience when meeting Jesus, through a tragic helicopter crash, to seeing ministering angels, to taking a trip to heaven, to a particular whirlwind and to a heavenly light lighting a dark path. Several key scriptures taken from the book of Matthew are presented as "keys to the Kingdom of Heaven," using the Geneva Bible, which until recently, had been lost from the Christian world for nearly four hundred years. The Geneva Bible, which was the Bible used by our first pilgrims in the United States had a more personal and narrower approach to the Kingdom of Heaven. Ronald McClure is a notable observer and admirer of God's handy-work in nature, of which he has written books and recorded songs about. He is the proud daddy of five grown children, of whom he always felt that God "first" called him to be a good father. Mr. McClure is a 1980 graduate of East Texas Baptist University in Marshall, Texas. While being an avid student of the Bible, Ronald has worked in agriculture, drove trucks, drilled for oil in the Gulf of Mexico, owned and operated a TV repair shop and has spent more than a decade as a security officer within the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. He has written five books and has recorded three music CDs.

Being Material Book Excerpt:

Explorations of the many ways of being material in the digital age. In his oracular 1995 book Being Digital, Nicholas Negroponte predicted that social relations, media, and commerce would move from the realm of “atoms to bits”—that human affairs would be increasingly untethered from the material world. And yet in 2019, an age dominated by the digital, we have not quite left the material world behind. In Being Material, artists and technologists explore the relationship of the digital to the material, demonstrating that processes that seem wholly immaterial function within material constraints. Digital technologies themselves, they remind us, are material things—constituted by atoms of gold, silver, silicon, copper, tin, tungsten, and more. The contributors explore five modes of being material: programmable, wearable, livable, invisible, and audible. Their contributions take the form of reports, manifestos, philosophical essays, and artist portfolios, among other configurations. The book's cover merges the possibilities of paper with those of the digital, featuring a bookmark-like card that, when “seen” by a smartphone, generates graphic arrangements that unlock films, music, and other dynamic content on the book's website. At once artist's book, digitally activated object, and collection of scholarship, this book both demonstrates and chronicles the many ways of being material.

Mayhem and Monkeyshines Book Excerpt:

Twelve-year-old Mary Lyttle is sitting on the floor of a bookstore when a strange-looking blank book drops into her lap from a shelf above. Moments later, she falls into the book and lands in an earlier time. Relieved that her beloved crystal medallion is still around her neck, she notices an ancient ship anchored nearby. After the captain and his family convince Mary that she must be there for some reason, she boards the ship crewed by talking monkeys. After they set sail, they discover an island, decide to explore, and become stuck in thick ice. After they summon help from an old hermit, they finally break free—only to be captured by pirates who take them to their volcanic island hideaway. As Mary and the others are being prepared for ritual sacrifice to their captors’ evil god, they escape with assistance from animals. But what Mary does not know is that her adventures are just beginning, and that her necklace is there to help her. Will she ever find her way back home, and who will inherit the necklace next? Mayhem and Monkeyshines is an exciting tale of adventure as a twelve-year-old girl and others time travel into a fictional world with more questions than answers.

Treasures of Darkness eBook ePub Book Excerpt:

Treasures of Darkness: Finding God When Hope Seems Hidden People generally consider dark times in life as times that are filled with pain, fear, anxiety, depression, loss, or sadness. Tara Soughers recognizes such moments in her own life. When hope seemed hidden, however, she encountered God. She tells us that she does not always recognize her times of darkness as grace-filled. “There are times when God seems absent in the darkness. There are times when I feel lost and even abandoned. But my journeys through the darkness have revealed God to me in ways that I could never have imagined.” She shares personal stories about dark times in her life and how she encountered God through the experiences. She invites us to embrace the darkness as an opportunity to experience the treasure of God’s love, presence, and power. Soughers invites us to explore several biblical stories in which darkness plays a major role, and each of the scripture readings offers a unique treasure in the darkness. Psalm 139:12 proclaims a powerful truth about God. “Even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light to you.” God creates in darkness (Genesis 1). God gives us “life . . . the light of all people” in Jesus Christ (John 1:4). Abraham, Paul, Jacob, Job, Nicodemus, and Jesus encounter treasures from God in the darkness. As Soughers explores each biblical account, she offers a unique point of contact for contemporary Christians, treasures that can sustain us as we encounter darkness in our lives. Book contents contain: Prologue: Discovering Treasures in Darkness 1. Darkness is as Light to You (Psalm 139:7-12) 2. Let There Be Light: Creation and Creativity (Genesis 1:1-5) 3. Count the Stars: Hearing God's Promise (Genesis 15) 4. Who Are You? Overcoming our Blindness (Acts 9:1-19) 5. Why Have You Forsaken Me? Bringing Life Out of Death (Matthew 27:45-56) 6. Wrestling with God: Transformation (Genesis 32:22-32) 7. Listen to this Dream: Enlightenment through Dreams (Genesis 37:1-11; 41:1-36) 8. Out of the Whirlwind: God as Mystery (Job 3:1-8; 38:4-21) 9. How Can These Things Be? Being Born Again (John 3:1-10) 10. Gate of Heaven: Encountering God Where Least Expected (Genesis 28:10-22) 11. The Light Shines in the Darkness: God's Self-Revelation (John 1:1-15) 12. The Night Is as Bright as the Day (Psalm 139:7-12) Epilogue: Treasures of Darkness Each chapter includes questions for reflection and discussion. This book is ideal for use in local church book groups.

The Warrior Mind Book Excerpt:

When we think of martial arts, we think of self defense, but for the true practitioner it is so much more than that. It is a mindset, a form of mental discipline that enables the warrior to face any challenge with grace and strength. In The Warrior Mind, Jim Pritchard, a disciple of legendary Ninjitsu and Taijitsu masters, reveals how we can adopt this mindset whether or not we practice the physical components of the martial arts. Pritchard describes six mental principles: * Attentive curiosity: slow down, observe calmly * Undulation: move side-to-side to build strength * Clear intent: know when and how to act * Grappling: engage the issue or opponent with confidence * Rolling waves: demonstrate persistence and the will to triumph * Whirlwind: when necessary, unleash an all-out onslaught Using colorful anecdotes, insightful examples, and inspiring stories, Pritchard shows how these six principles will help readers maintain focus and balance -- no matter what obstacles await them.
