America s Miracle Man in Vietnam Book Excerpt:

America’s Miracle Man in Vietnam rethinks the motivations behind one of the most ruinous foreign-policy decisions of the postwar era: America’s commitment to preserve an independent South Vietnam under the premiership of Ngo Dinh Diem. The so-called Diem experiment is usually ascribed to U.S. anticommunism and an absence of other candidates for South Vietnam’s highest office. Challenging those explanations, Seth Jacobs utilizes religion and race as categories of analysis to argue that the alliance with Diem cannot be understood apart from America’s mid-century religious revival and policymakers’ perceptions of Asians. Jacobs contends that Diem’s Catholicism and the extent to which he violated American notions of “Oriental” passivity and moral laxity made him a more attractive ally to Washington than many non-Christian South Vietnamese with greater administrative experience and popular support. A diplomatic and cultural history, America’s Miracle Man in Vietnam draws on government archives, presidential libraries, private papers, novels, newspapers, magazines, movies, and television and radio broadcasts. Jacobs shows in detail how, in the 1950s, U.S. policymakers conceived of Cold War anticommunism as a crusade in which Americans needed to combine with fellow Judeo-Christians against an adversary dangerous as much for its atheism as for its military might. He describes how racist assumptions that Asians were culturally unready for democratic self-government predisposed Americans to excuse Diem’s dictatorship as necessary in “the Orient.” By focusing attention on the role of American religious and racial ideologies, Jacobs makes a crucial contribution to our understanding of the disastrous commitment of the United States to “sink or swim with Ngo Dinh Diem.”

The Miracle Man Book Excerpt:

The Miracle Man By: James Sprandel “I personally have known James since we were in the ninth grade at Rutherford High School in 1989. At that time James had already had his disability from the Aneurysm, but he was still just like any normal acting boy at that time. Years have gone by with little contact between James and I, then we became Facebook Friends and started our friendship all over again! James moved to Panama City from Mobile Alabama a couple years ago and we have been able to keep in touch and hang out much more often. James is a godly man and follows the word of Jesus Christ, that is one thing I really appreciate about being his friend. Through the years James has become a kind, caring and very giving person and for that I really value his friendship as well.” - Don Cooley The Miracle Man is a collection of stories about the many miracles God has worked in author James Sprandel’s life. His story will touch readers’ hearts and remind us in times of need: Through good times and bad, He’s always there for you.

The Miracle Man Book Excerpt:

The Miracle Man presents the spiritual autobiography of Jeff Kurtzer, a man who struggled with a series of challenges, including physical and mental abuse, early use of drugs and alcohol, a diagnosis of manic depression, and multiple stays in psychiatric care facilities. Born in Long Island, New York, the author lived through times that remind many of the life of Job, the biblical figure who endured extreme deprivation, but who clung to his faith in God. As he recounts the trajectory of his life, Jeff Kurtzer seasons his account with passage from the Scriptures that offered him encouragement at the time. His story was written to provide support to all who seek hope and change in their own lives. This approach flows from his faith that God sees the truth of one’s life and will work to change it, just as he heard in a prophesy prayed over him: “God has called you to His ministry and all you have been going through will be used to help many people. God is going to heal you completely and restore all that the enemy has stolen from you.” When you face those moments in your life—whether brief or extended—when the obstacles are piling up and all passages to peace seem hopelessly blocked, then The Miracle Man can offer you words of encouragement that God does still work miracles in today’s world. He worked one in the life of Jeff Kurtzer, and He can work a miracle in your life too.

Miracle Man of the Western Front Book Excerpt:

In the intense fighting that marked World War I in Europe, an Armenian-American volunteer dentist quickly became known for his skill in treating the disfiguring facial injuries suffered by large numbers of British soldiers. Working originally under primitive conditions in makeshift hospitals near the battlefields of France, Varaztad H. Kazanjian exhibited a humane concern combined with innovative medical procedures that established his reputation and marked his subsequent career as a founder of the modern practice of plastic surgery. In recognition of his war service, Dr. Kazanjian became known as "the miracle man of the Western Front" and was invested by England's King George V in the most distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George. Other honors followed as Dr. Kazanjian returned to the United States, where he continued his education and went on to a brilliant career as a surgeon, teacher at Harvard, and author of scientific articles. This biography traces the many influences that contributed to the remarkable success of the young man who fled from massacres in Ottoman Armenia to the United States in 1895. From modest beginnings in Worcester, Massachusetts, Kazanjian managed to enter Harvard Dental School. He went on to serve in World War I, earn a medical degree, and make remarkable advances in plastic surgery. He is remembered not only for his medical innovations and accomplishments, but also as a kind and modest person, "the gentle genius of plastic surgery."--Adapted from book jacket.
