Book Summary:

“How do we recognize the moment our future has been written for us? In To Keep the Sun Alive, as the Islamic Revolution looms just outside the gate of an Iranian family orchard, Rabeah Ghaffari has built a world so lush, so precise that you will find yourself rewriting history if only to imagine it could still exist.”—Mira Jacob, author of The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing "[A] tenderhearted début novel . . . A wide–ranging narrative, showing the enduring ramifications of filial and political violence." —The New Yorker The year is 1979. The Iranian Revolution is just around the corner. In the northeastern city of Naishapur, a retired judge and his wife, Bibi–Khanoom, continue to run their ancient family orchard, growing apples, plums, peaches, and sour cherries. The days here are marked by long, elaborate lunches on the terrace where the judge and his wife mediate disputes between aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews that foreshadow the looming national crisis to come. Will the monarchy survive the revolutionary tide gathering across the country? Will the judge’s brother, a powerful cleric, take political control of the town or remain only a religious leader? And yet, life goes on. Bibi–Khanoom’s grandniece secretly falls in love with the judge’s grandnephew and dreams of a career on the stage. His other grandnephew withers away on opium dreams. A widowed father longs for a life in Europe. A strained marriage slowly unravels. The orchard trees bloom and fruit as the streets in the capital grow violent. And a once–in–a–lifetime solar eclipse, set to occur on one of the holiest days of year, finally causes the family—and the country—to break. Told through a host of unforgettable characters, ranging from servants and young children to intimate friends, To Keep the Sun Alive reveals the personal behind the political, reminding us of the human lives that animate historical events.

Book Summary:

A moving portrait of Africa from Poland's most celebrated foreign correspondent - a masterpiece from a modern master. Famous for being in the wrong places at just the right times, Ryszard Kapuscinski arrived in Africa in 1957, at the beginning of the end of colonial rule - the "sometimes dramatic and painful, sometimes enjoyable and jubilant" rebirth of a continent. The Shadow of the Sun sums up the author's experiences ("the record of a 40-year marriage") in this place that became the central obsession of his remarkable career. From the hopeful years of independence through the bloody disintegration of places like Nigeria, Rwanda and Angola, Kapuscinski recounts great social and political changes through the prism of the ordinary African. He examines the rough-and-ready physical world and identifies the true geography of Africa: a little-understood spiritual universe, an African way of being. He looks also at Africa in the wake of two epoch-making changes: the arrival of AIDS and the definitive departure of the white man. Kapuscinski's rare humanity invests his subjects with a grandeur and a dignity unmatched by any other writer on the Third World, and his unique ability to discern the universal in the particular has never been more powerfully displayed than in this work.

Book Summary:

In eleventh-century Wales, a land steeped in ancient Celtic lore, two lovers discover a passion that journeys beyond time. Young Wynne of Gwernach has no dreams of marriage. Innocent and pure of heart, she believes that love is an illusion. Instead, she devotes herself to managing the great family estate nestled in the raw beauty of Wales, vowing to protect it and her younger brother until he comes of age to inherit. And then Madoc of Powys enters into her life, claiming his betrothal to Wynne when she was a babe. Madoc is both feared and worshipped throughout the land, for his family’s power is said to stem from Merlin himself. Yet it is a very human desire he evokes in Wynne; his warm gaze makes her flesh burn with unaccustomed fire. Still, she remains firm in her belief that she can never marry, can never be owned. But Madoc of Powys is a Celt in his heart and soul. He knows Wynne’s reluctance to wed is the legacy of another life. In time she will know everything—for which he is both hopeful and desperately afraid. For Wynne and Madoc have been lovers in another time, another place. But what unfinished destiny lays between them?

Book Summary:

A pioneering call for a new understanding of scale across the humanities How is it possible that you are—simultaneously—cells, atoms, a body, quarks, a component in an ecological network, a moment in the thermodynamic dispersal of the sun, and an element in the gravitational whirl of galaxies? In this way, we routinely transform reality into things already outside of direct human experience, things we hardly comprehend even as we speak of DNA, climate effects, toxic molecules, and viruses. How do we find ourselves with these disorienting layers of scale? Enter Scale Theory, which provides a foundational theory of scale that explains how scale works, the parameters of scalar thinking, and how scale refigures reality—that teaches us how to think in terms of scale, no matter where our interests may lie. Joshua DiCaglio takes us on a fascinating journey through six thought experiments that provide clarifying yet provocative definitions for scale and new ways of thinking about classic concepts ranging from unity to identity. Because our worldviews and philosophies are largely built on nonscalar experience, he then takes us slowly through the ways scale challenges and reconfigures objects, subjects, and relations. Scale Theory is, in a sense, nondisciplinary—weaving together a dizzying array of sciences (from nanoscience to ecology) with discussions from the humanities (from philosophy to rhetoric). In the process, a curious pattern emerges: attempts to face the significance of scale inevitably enter terrain closer to mysticism than science. Rather than dismiss this connection, DiCaglio examines the reasons for it, redefining mysticism in terms of scale and integrating contemplative philosophies into the discussion. The result is a powerful account of the implications and challenges of scale, attuned to the way scale transforms both reality and ourselves.

Book Summary:

Born in rural Eastern North Carolina of parents near poverty, this author has told a compelling story from the heart. It is easy to read. Having been born in the south, the author scatters bits of southern humor throughout which brings a smile to your face. Death brought on despair at an early age and drugs brought on challenges to an already confusing world. Concealing a deep dark secret was hard and challenging at times and caused the author to question his God. A failed relationship brought on many moments of sad reflection, but a new love brought about happiness and laughter. Hard work and determination gave birth to a successful career that delivered the author, as an adult, from a world of poverty. Through a process of discovering his inner self, his values, his motivation, his goals, and beliefs, his life changed. It is a story of encouragement that should be read by all who have an interest in the human journey.Jan: "This is a compelling and beautiful love story. It is an easy and fun read filled with insights not only into the climb out of poverty but the coming of age of a young man in the Sixties and beyond."Loyd: "This author told a great story; I read it in one sitting."Peggi: "I was struck by the author's honesty and candid story. He 'shows' the story rather than simply telling it. That is, one can visualize the environment and even feel the tension.Don: "I couldn't put the book down.

Book Summary:

Jen Devon's Bend Toward the Sun is a gorgeous, emotional love story about taking unexpected paths, accepting loss, and finding strength in the transformative power of love. “Heart-warming, sensual, beautifully written.”—Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis Two imperfect people. One year under the sun. A love story you won't ever forget. Rowan McKinnon doesn’t believe in love. With a botany PhD, two best friends who embrace her social quirkiness, and some occasional no-strings sex, she has everything she needs. But she hides deep wounds from the past—from an emotionally negligent mother, and a fiancé who treated her like a pawn in a game. When an academic setback leads Rowan to take on the restoration of a winery's abandoned vineyard, she relishes the opportunity to restore the grapes to their former glory. She does not expect to meet a man like Harrison Brady. An obstetrician profoundly struggling after losing a patient, Harry no longer believes he is capable of keeping people safe. Reeling, Harry leaves Los Angeles to emotionally recover at his parents’ new vineyard in Pennsylvania. He does not expect to meet a woman like Rowan McKinnon. As their combative banter gives way to a simmering tension, sunlight begins to crack through the darkness smothering Harry’s soul. He’s compelled to explore the undeniable pull between them. And after a lifetime of protecting herself from feeling anything, for anyone, Rowan tries to keep things casual. But even she can’t ignore their explosive connection. "A lushly drawn portrait of two people with a magnetic, soul-deep connection."—New York Times bestselling author Rachel Lynn Solomon "A gorgeous love story full of lyrical writing and raw emotion."—New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst

In this electrifying novel, New York Times bestselling author and “an important voice in American literature” (Jada Pinkett Smith) Sister Souljah returns to the story of her beloved character, Midnight. Handsome, young, Muslim, and married to two women living in one house along with his mother, Umma, and sister, Naja: can Midnight manage all that he has on his plate? He is surrounded by Americans who don’t share or understand his faith or culture, and adults who are offended by his maturity, intelligence, and his natural ability to make his hard work turn into real money. He is calm, confident, and cool, Ninja-trained and powerful, but one moment of rage throws this Brooklyn youth into a dark world of dirty police, gangs, guns, drugs, prisons, and dangerous inmates. Everything he ever believed, every dollar he ever earned, and all of the women he ever loved—including his mother—are at risk. Will his manhood be taken, broken, or altered? Can he maintain his faith? Outnumbered, overruled, and deeply envied—how can he possibly survive? Will the streets convert him? What can he keep? What must he lose?

Book Summary:

A Moment in Time will encourage believers to entertain principles of grace-based theology and, after careful consideration, embrace them. When we’re convinced of the gracious simplicity in acquiring the free gift of eternal life, it impacts how we share our faith. When we’re confident this free gift can’t be lost, it calms us down. When we’re certain Christ will repay and recompense us for what we do with this free gift, we’re motivated to “be holy” as He is holy. In looking at the biblical text, Christians will be reminded that justification is provided at no cost to them. They’ll see there’s room for failure in the Christian life. But they’ll also learn where there’s great grace, there’s great accountability--and great reward. It is wonderful to see this fresh look at many of the grace issues at a popular level. Mark Spencer has given us an insightful look into the implications of grace in the task of evangelism and discipleship. Recommended reading!! --Dr. Joseph Dillow Mark Spencer has the wonderful ability to communicate deep biblical truths in an interesting and straightforward way. The reader will find a clear articulation of the grace message and convincing arguments against those who have corrupted it. I am glad to see this comprehensive and persuasive presentation of the gospel of grace and its implications. It will serve us well as we seek to share this message with the world. --Dr. Charlie Bing This is a book that needs to be taken seriously as a helpful guide to developing a strategic plan to be servants of Christ in our areas of influence. As Mark said, his last 25 years as a police officer went by overnight - so how fast will the years fly by in our lives? We all have a mission and an obligation to be useful to the Master. --Dr. John South

The golden age of cinema is dawning, and Santa Fe is in the grip of movie fever when director Luther Bishop arrives for the filming of his new cowboy flick. Maddie Vaughn-Alwin’s cousin Gwen Astor is in town with a bit part in the movie—but Gwen finds herself caught in a whirlwind of mischief before shooting even begins. But the plot only thickens when the detestable director is found hanging in his office. When it comes to light that Gwen was having a torrid affair with Luther, she gets pegged as the prime suspect, much to Maddie’s dismay. But Maddie, quick on her feet with ever the keen eye knows that Luther had his fair share of enemies, and there’s no shortage of contenders. Luther’s widowed wife Bridget finally assumes her late husband’s most-coveted director’s chair, head of wardrobe Lorelei Fontaine is bitterly denied a role by Luther she was once promised, and original leading man Harry Kelly was summarily fired by Luther just upon arriving at Santa Fe. Desperate to prove Gwen’s innocence, Maddie begins an investigation, but every clue reveals another motive—and could point to another murder—in A Moment in Crime, the second engaging whodunit in Amanda Allen’s enchanting Santa Fe Revival mysteries.

Book Summary:

*A NEW YORK TIMES 2021 NOTABLE BOOK* A timely and unsettling novel about the people drawn to and unmoored by a local activist group more dangerous than it appears—from the winner of the PEN/Malamud Award and “one of our most gifted writers” (Chicago Tribune). Once a promising actor, Tim Brettigan has gone missing. His father thinks he may have seen him among some homeless people. And though she knows he left on purpose, his mother has been searching for him all over the city. She checks the usual places—churches, storefronts, benches—and stum­bles upon a local community group with lofty goals and an enigmatic leader who will alter all of their lives. Christina, a young woman rapidly becoming addicted to a boutique drug that gives her a feeling of blessedness, is inexplicably drawn to the same collective by a man who’s convinced he may start a revolution. As the lives of these four characters intertwine, a story of guilt, anxiety, and feverish hope unfolds in the city of Minneapolis. A vision of modern American society and the specters of the consumerism, fanaticism, and fear that haunt it, The Sun Collective captures both the mystery and the violence that punctuate our daily lives.

Book Summary:

This is the story of the Hayden Family who left New York City in 1850 in search for a better life in Nebraska. Thomas Hayden, his wife Isobel, and their 3 children, Emma, Mitchell, and 4 yr. old Melissa, departed in the early spring. And the reason they left was simple—it was the gang violence from the infamous Five Corners. Thomas Hayden, famous for his expert marksmanship, led the family thru good and bad weather until they were halfway there—then tragedy struck! They lost Melissa to some unknown malady. After burying her under an old tree, they continued on with heavy hearts until they reached their final destination in Nebraska. There, with the help of the powerful Johnson ranch, they built their home. A turning point in their lives happened when ore was discovered and a town was built a mile north of their homestead. Under Thomas’s suggestion, it was named Johnsonville. The town was soon filled with people, including miners and merchants—and they were all thrilled and felt protected that Thomas Hayden was only a mile away. The ranch foreman, Hank Whittaker, soon developed sexual and romantic feelings for Isobel—and she felt the same for him! But nothing was ever said or ever mentioned; they both kept it to themselves. Isobel, the school teacher, soon was the most popular lady in Johnsonville, mainly because of her bubbly personality, but the real reason was the fact she was Thomas’s wife. And as the town grew and they erected a dance hall right behind the jail, Isobel was ecstatic; no one loved to dance more than her. As the years went on the Hayden family, along with the townspeople, became friendly with the local tribe that was run by their powerful chief, Running Elk. So the only problem the townspeople ever encountered was the odd rowdy drifter and he was quickly escorted out of town. With plenty of ore still in the ground, everybody thought that they would live a good and peaceful life. They all thought nothing could go wrong—then the Civil War broke out! And, of course, President Lincoln wanted none other than Thomas Hayden. Thomas didn’t mind, but Isobel did; because of her negative thoughts about most things, she figured Thomas would be killed and she would end up a lonely widow with 2 children to look after. Dr. Katherine McBride is madly in love with Thomas. Ever since that wonderful day in New York when she had begged her father to take her to see this marvelous 11 yr. old boy give a demonstration. She loved him so much, even though she was only 4 yrs. old herself. The irony is that she is so beautiful; most men would simply die for her. But the only man she could love was Thomas. Tormented by both wicked and loving thoughts about being with him, she knew it was all just a silly pipe dream. Covered in blood and working tireless hours, her dreams are about to come true—Thomas Hayden’s division, led by General Masters, will soon be entering her camp! Much to the delight of Isobel and the children, Thomas was coming home safe and sound. Even the painful rumors about Thomas having an affair didn’t bother her now. As time went on, the only major problem was that a gang of outlaws wanted to kill Thomas and held the town up for ransom—but Thomas, along with Chief Running Elk saved the day. When kid grows up, he or she wants to be hero. And in the old west it was no different, young boys want to become a famous gunfighter. And that is exactly what Mitchell Hayden wants to be—another Vance Cordeau, the fastest gun in the west! It was decided by Thomas that he will teach Mitchell the system that his father taught him, simply because if Mitchell couldn’t protect himself, then he would probably end up being killed. After Mitchell left, his reputation grew—and became known as, much to the chagrin of Thomas, ‘Mitch Hayden,’ the fastest gunfighter in the west. So, would Mitch get killed or become a teacher? And would Thomas’s farsighted hopes and dreams come true? Or would he have to move again to avoid oncoming trouble? Would the beautiful Emma really become an old maid? And how long can Isobel and Hank keep from having a sexual encounter? And will Dr. Katherine McBride’s dream of one day having Thomas as her lover or husband finally come true? Read on!

Book Summary:

A finalist for the 2017 Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a First Novel. Deftly written and utterly addictive, this Western literary horror debut will find a home with fans of authors like Joe Hill, Cormac McCarthy, and Anne Rice. One night in 1980, a man becomes a monster. Haunted by his past, Travis Stillwell spends his nights searching out women in West Texas honky-tonks. What he does with them doesn’t make him proud, just quiets the demons for a little while. But after Travis crosses paths one night with a mysterious pale-skinned girl, he wakes weak and bloodied in his cabover camper the next morning—with no sign of a girl, no memory of the night before. Annabelle Gaskin spies the camper parked behind her motel and offers the cowboy a few odd jobs to pay his board. Travis takes her up on the offer, if only to buy time, to lay low and heal. By day, he mends the old motel, insinuating himself into the lives of Annabelle and her ten-year-old son. By night, in the cave of his camper, he fights an unspeakable hunger. Before long, Annabelle and her boy come to realize that this strange cowboy is not what he seems. Half a state away, a grizzled Texas Ranger is hunting Travis for his past misdeeds, but what he finds will lead him to a revelation far more monstrous. A man of the law, he’ll have to decide how far into the darkness he’ll go for the sake of justice. When these lives converge on a dusty autumn night, an old evil will find new life—and new blood.

Book Summary:

While many contemplate roaming the world, at 22, Laurie Rutherford Pederson embarked on a solo journey of 365 days, beginning in December 1976. She recorded her many adventures, sublime to horrific, in twenty-seven journals from which this book emerged. The Victoria, B.C. native worked as a travel agent, creating her own itinerary to countries that intrigued her. She explored these exotic locations, each replete with its historic and often perilous political landscapes, using all means of transport: from a luggage rack on a train in India to rickshaws to horseback, even a boat on the Canal du Midi. Family friends in several countries provided respites of gracious hospitality and rollicking entertainment; but, to her credit, Pederson writes with equal appreciation of the many strangerslocals and fellow travellersshe encountered along the way. Her prose sparkles with hilarious interior monologues and a cinematographers attention to detail. From a near-fatal motorcycle accident on Bali to a brush with death at the Israel-Lebanese border, there is adventure, romance, fear and reflection. The author left her secure home in Victoria as a young adventuress; she returned a woman. Pedersons memoir is contemplative yet spontaneous, capturing a time of great change in the world.

Satan sets off for earth, and meets his offspring, Sin and Death, at the gate of hell. They let him pass, and he journeys onward.

Book Summary:

Written in Irv Yalom's inimitable story-telling style, Staring at the Sun is a profoundly encouraging approach to the universal issue of mortality. In this magisterial opus, capping a lifetime of work and personal experience, Dr. Yalom helps us recognize that the fear of death is at the heart of much of our anxiety. Such recognition is often catalyzed by an "awakening experience"—a dream, or loss (the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job or home), illness, trauma, or aging. Once we confront our own mortality, Dr. Yalom writes, we are inspired to rearrange our priorities, communicate more deeply with those we love, appreciate more keenly the beauty of life, and increase our willingness to take the risks necessary for personal fulfillment.
