Thomas J Wood Book Excerpt:

Thomas J. Wood, Kentuckian, graduated fifth in his West Point class in 1846 and joined the staff of General Zachary Taylor. The Mexican War was just beginning and Wood fought in several battles after which he served under General Winfield Scott in Mexico City. In 1861, Wood became a brigadier general of volunteers and began his Civil War service with the Army of the Cumberland, with whom he fought in every campaign and most of its major battles. Wood has never before been the subject of a full length biography but is well known for a notorious lapse of judgment resulting in a Confederate breakthrough at Chickamauga that shattered the Union right flank and threatened the survival of the Army of the Cumberland. It is a moment in the war still argued about. Wood learned from his mistake, became a better general from that time on (notably at Missionary Ridge and Nashville), and redeemed himself in the eyes of his fellow officers and his civilian superiors.

Everything is Personal Book Excerpt:

Everything Is Personal is an empowering book for those who have tried to change without experiencing much success. Following several setbacks in an attempt to live a life of unconditional love, the author looks into the conflict between how she wants to act and how she actually behaves. In the process, she discovers a truth that transforms her life: Everything is Personal. Everything is Personal is an inspiring chronicle of the author’s inner journey to alter her behaviors, only to discover how difficult change can be even when the desire is strong. She recognizes she is not alone. Research shows ninety percent of those who make New Year’s resolutions fail by the end of the year. Relying on the guiding principle that Everything is Personal and her love for Quantum Physics, brain research, and learning theory, she devises a change process that is simple and effective. As she gradually revises her self-defeating beliefs, she discovers true inner happiness, unconditional self-love, and compassion for others. Her journey is personal, but the answers she finds are universal.

Too Many Book Excerpt:

From John Paul II, to Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King Jr. and others in between, Too Many, by author James Syver, shares the stories of twenty people who have impacted history and the lives of many. Each was moved to state their trust and belief in their Creator, and in large measure, credit Him for their work. This collection of Christ-inspired histories explores the individuals’ lives and the impact they’ve had on society. Syver discusses each person’s background and character, what propelled them forward, how they inspired future generations, and how they were guided by their faith. Offering examples of lives well lived, Too Many shares how each of these twenty people influenced the world because they, in their time, listened, and acted. From contemplations to inspiring actions and from many different pages of history, these vignettes underscore a personal belief and trust in the divine.

Harriet Beecher Stowe Book Excerpt:

"So you're the little woman who started this big war," Abraham Lincoln is said to have quipped when he met Harriet Beecher Stowe. Her 1852 novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin converted readers by the thousands to the anti-slavery movement and served notice that the days of slavery were numbered. Overnight Stowe became a celebrity, but to defenders of slavery she was the devil in petticoats. Most writing about Stowe treats her as a literary figure and social reformer while downplaying her Christian faith. But Nancy Koester's biography highlights Stowe’s faith as central to her life -- both her public fight against slavery and her own personal struggle through deep grief to find a gracious God. Having meticulously researched Stowe’s own writings, both published and un-published, Koester traces Stowe's faith pilgrimage from evangelical Calvinism through spiritualism to Anglican spirituality in a flowing, compelling narrative.
