Finding God in the Shack Book Excerpt:

The Shack has touched millions of readers with its portrayal of a compassionate God in the face of great evil. Many have identified with the main character's Great Sadness, the terrible burden of grief that often accompanies and follows a deep loss. The Great Sadness is part of the human condition. And it compels us to ask, Where is God? Who is God? Roger Olson, who has faced his own Great Sadness, finds a good deal of comfort in this much beloved story as have so many others. Some may ask, however, Is God really like that? Is that really how God responds to evil? Can God be trusted? Olson also views The Shack with a theologian's eye and finds much to endorse. He delves into many of the significant issues raised by the book, such as forgiving those who have done us great evil, how God acts in the world, how God is three persons in one and what difference this makes to us. While he offers his own criticisms and questions of the book, he believes we largely find the truth about God in The Shack.

Then, on an icy winter day, Mack receives a strange invitation to "Meet me at the shack this weekend. Love, Papa."

Journey of Revenge Book Excerpt:

We must be very careful of how we raise our children. If the wrong message is sent to the child the end result can be tragic. Children are very impressionable and are born with the desire to please their parents. It is a parent's responsibility to raise the child into adulthood in a proper manner. There are no good templates to follow or precise instructions for the creation of a well rounded child. That would be far too simple. Parents must remember that a perfect child does not exist. They also must remember that a child needs to be a child. Each child is very different and each child requires special attention that can only be given by loving parents. If but one parent or future parent reads this book and realizes the potential effect of their actions on a child, and changes their parenting approach, then I have done my job. This novel reflects the effect of an overbearing abusive parent on a child. The child, Zeke, possesses the ability to fully remember everything since he was three years old. Zeke is both physically and mentally abused by a controlling mother, Marie, who is relentless in her quest to prove to the boy that he is evil and worthless. Zeke grows up through childhood to believe that he is really the monster that his mother makes him out to be. Zeke is driven to seclusion early in life by Marie. He only feels safe when he is alone where nobody can see or touch him. He is safe only in a world where he is the one in control and he makes the decisions. Zeke's father, James, is a workaholic and is seldom around to realize the abuse that goes on during his absence. Marie uses James to administer punishment to the boy for infractions that are blown out of proportion by her anger toward the child. The reality is that Marie never wanted the child and she blames James for the existence of the boy. The truth is that James fears being at home with Marie as much as Zeke does. The control and abuse doesn't stop with Zeke, it also filters down to James. The story follows Zeke through school where he is constantly in trouble with other children and school officials. His punishment for his behavior is severe and his anger toward the world increases as each day passes. In each case where he is wronged he must retaliate. Zeke fully understands right from wrong, but he can't control his anger and hatred. He won't even try, why should he? His only friend in life, Tony, suffers a tragic death at a very young age and Zeke blames himself for not being able to save him. He feels that if he had only listened to Tony that he could have saved him. That guilt follows Zeke for the rest of his life. He has his first romantic interlude at an early age with a young female neighbor. His trust and ability to care about females is further damaged by the actions of this young lady. Marie has laid the groundwork for Zeke to possess the power to hate when he is rejected. He will not be controlled by anyone. He will be the one who controls each situation. Only Zeke's feelings matter anymore. Zeke begins to suffer from reoccurring nightmares that haunt him almost daily. He can't escape them and they continue to burn their way into his mind. A faceless demon with a blood dripping dagger chases him relentlessly in his nightmares. The nightmare intensifies over the years until one day he sees the face of the demon clearly. During the story Zeke's life crosses the path of an undesirable vagrant named Whitey. He proves to be an individual that needs to be dealt with. Whitey is just another person who tries to control and abuse Zeke. Zeke's quest to get even with Whitey takes him to a place in his mind that he will travel numerous times in the future. Many chose to cross Zeke during his life and he comes up with unique ways to deal with these individuals. Zeke believes that those who wrong him deserve to be punished and no punishment is too great for those who betray him. Zeke escapes his life at home through the help of Ja

Crowded Lives Book Excerpt:

Gritty, suspenseful short fiction about criminals and other characters on the edge from an Edgar Award–winning author. “Not all Howard’s heroes are ex-cons, but they might as well be. They’ve all been around the block, made more than their share of mistakes, and taken their lumps, usually without complaint. A hit man who refuses a commission goes into hiding, afraid that everybody who looks twice at him may be carrying a bullet with his name on it. A Vietnam veteran plots revenge on the commanding officer who sent his troops into a cloud of Agent Orange; a ward of hospitalized WWII soldiers schemes to find the whereabouts of the lost love of one of their mates before he dies. A has-been boxer trains for a big bout without realizing he’s been set up; a New Orleans clarinet player skips around town one step ahead of a creditor’s enforcers long enough to audition for the Jazz Hall of Fame. . . . In every case, there’s no mystery about who’s guilty . . . but only about whether Howard’s protagonists will succeed in their fatal plots, get rescued from their own worst nature, or, in the trickiest of these nine stories, succeed but fail anyway.” —Kirkus Reviews

Tales of Iran Book Excerpt:

These evocative short stories put together in historical order, present a vivid mosaic of the dramatic, comic, lyrical, and tragic. Spanning 100 years, the tales are wonderfully diverse - a young girl is forced to marry a feudal lord much older than her, a village dandy falls in love with a beautiful woman in a foreign land, the treacherous role played by the people of Tehran when the democratically elected government of Dr Mosaddegh was overthrown by the help of the CIA, young boys in a remote village are asked to take part in horrific, absurd and comical religious ceremonies and festivals, a little boy who becomes intensely preoccupied with the secret lives of marionettes, a deeply religious adolescent who fails to have sex with a prostitute, a woman who is banned from singing under Sharia Law, a pigeon-fancier who falls in love with a young woman whose fanatic family cause a lot of problems for him - but together these tales create a sense of separate destinies entwined across time and space.

Summer in Rialto Book Excerpt:

Ranch life saps the good looks from a woman, and eighteen-year-old Summer Gorman has no intention of letting that happen to her. Looking to experience life and make her own way in the world, she leaves her parents, Herm and Sara, and their run-down 1,400-acre ranch. Hitching a ride into Rialto, a small Tex-Mex town thirty miles from the ranch, Summer lands a job as a waitress at Caf Rialto, a diner owned by former boxer Sharkey Gallos. Looking for excitement and perhaps romance, Summer finds plenty of each. As her romance with Sharkey grows, so does her realization that Sharkeys passion for big money and his increasing involvement with the drug traffic are heading for big trouble. Summer finds her ties with the ranch are not completely severed, as her former classmate Clay Burnside rediscovers her in Rialto and awakens old memories she had forgotten. Then, her mother promotes her own ambitions, as well as spiting Summer, by deeding the ranch to her church. Summer begins a season filled with periods of breathtaking beauty and moments of abject terror. She learns who she is and what love is really about while growing from a girl into a woman.

Twilight Policing Book Excerpt:

South Africa boasts the largest private security sector in the entire world, reflecting deep anxieties about violence, security, and governance. Twilight Policing is an ethnographic study of the daily policing practices of armed response officers—a specific type of private security officer—and their interactions with citizens and the state police in Durban, South Africa. This book shows how their policing practices simultaneously undermine and support the state, resulting in actions that are neither public nor private, but something in between, something "twilight." Their performances of security are also punitive, disciplinary, and exclusionary, and they work to reinforce post-apartheid racial and economic inequalities. Ultimately, Twilight Policing helps to illuminate how citizens survive volatile conditions and to whom they assign the authority to guide them in the process.
