Book Excerpt :

Maybe you’re a part of the great majority of people in the world who don’t go to church. Or maybe you used to go to church and you don’t go anymore. You may even be the person who is going to church and walking away every time feeling worse than when you came, or wondering what the point was. But what if your idea of church is flawed? What if the thing you’re staying away from, the thing you decided to leave, or any collection of bad experiences is actually a false impression of what Jesus and his church are really all about? And what if you realized that although Jesus started this thing called the church and is in charge of it, Jesus never actually said that you are supposed to go to church? Jesus never said to go to church. But he did say that he would build his church, and he did say that his followers would be his church. That’s right: Jesus invites you to follow him and to never go to church again. So if you’re open to giving church another chance or seeing it for what Jesus always intended for it to be, then prepare to discover within these pages what you may have been missing—but looking for—all along.

Book Short Summary:

Dan Wells introduced us to John Wayne Cleaver in the chilling novels I Am Not a Serial Killer and Mr. Monster. In I Don't Want to Kill You, Cleaver faces his toughest challenge yet. John Wayne Cleaver has called a demon---literally called it on the phone---and challenged it to a fight. He's faced two monsters already, barely escaping with his life, and now he's done running; he's taking the fight to them. As he wades through the town's darkest secrets, searching for any sign of who the demon might be, one thing becomes all too clear: in a game of cat and mouse with a supernatural killer, you are always the mouse. In I Am Not a Serial Killer we watched a budding sociopath break every rule he had to save his town from evil. In Mr. Monster we held our breath as he fought madly with himself, struggling to stay in control. Now John Wayne Cleaver has mastered his twisted talents and embraced his role as a killer of killers. I Don't Want to Kill You brings his story to a thundering climax of suspicion, mayhem, and death. It's time to punish the guilty. And in a town full of secrets, everyone is guilty of something.

Book Short Summary:

Faith in God plus therapy are the combination that leads to wholeness. Tune's story of his faith/therapy path to authenticity with God will empower you for your own life journey. Tune is the son of a drug-addicted single parent mother, who herself, inherited deeply ingrained obstacles to self-love. He found his way out of poverty via the military. He graduated from Howard University and Duke School of Divinity. He was a minister, a sought-after speaker, and social entrepreneur. Outwardly, he was successful, an overcomer. Yet, his past, hidden childhood trauma would sometimes revolt, causing self-sabotage that threatened to destroy the life he was creating. He worked hard to keep the emotional brokenness caused by the challenges of his upbringing carefully hidden -especially from the church. His mother, with whom he successfully reconciled after she was finally free from addiction, died of lung cancer. Then he divorced--a second time. Feeling like a failure, questioning his faith and will to live, he made a choice not to give up but to examine his life and seek counseling. Dubbed "Brother Brown" (a Black man's Brene Brown), his book shares his process of applying therapy and faith to anger, shame, self-doubt and plaguing memories. Romal learned that the pursuit of success was not the key to healing the inner turmoil but it was in learning to accept the love of God and learning to love the wounded child within. His past pain was redeemed as self-worth and he finally found inner peace. No longer carrying the weight of secrets, guilt and shame, he emerged emotionally free and more powerful than ever. His book will empower others to stop living a past driven present by healing their stories, embracing the love of God, and learning to truly love themselves.

Book Short Summary:

Morning Star's Child is the painful spiritual journey of Kevin McCulloum from the Church's unspoken directive to her gay sons. The confusion of the soul that comes from the church's rejection forces the young man born under the influence of planet Venus, the planet of love and beauty to search for spiritual honesty and compassion on the teachings of Buddha and Jesus Christ. It presents the story of two young men that due to circumstances not under their control are unable to love one another and their attempt to cheat their ill-fated relationship. We are introduced to Kevin as his puritanical father rejects him when the father realizes that his beautiful son is gay. In a trip to Italy he finds out from a gypsy fortune teller that he is fated to a life of loneliness and that he is doomed to not finding his ideal mate or partner in life. He comes back to Chicago only to find that his father still rejects him. In the year when the planet Venus has completed its' 8 cycle run across the sky and has emerged from the underworld Kevin runs away to Puerto Vallarta where he meets a priest and recognizes him to be his other half from previous lives. Because our hero is not meant to find happiness in this life cycle he is sent away by his priest friend to find the life he is unable to give him. But before he leaves they travel to the Copper Canyon to make a sacrifice to the Goddess of Love where they swear to love one another in this life. In doing so they attract the attention of the gods trapped within the stars to their doomed relationship. In the canyon an Indian priestess tells Eduardo that Kevin will live an unfulfilled life and that when the 8 cycles of planet Venus going around the sun have been completed once again Kevin will come back to him dying, and together they will witness the passing of their souls. Kevin is made to forget all that has happened in Mexico but he is promised that on a night when witches rule the night and the time has come for his return he will remember all that has been hidden from him. We find our hero now living in San Francisco. He is an incredibly beautiful man who has not been able to form a lasting relationship with anyone including his father but who has been true to the spiritual honesty and compassions to others. He has written a fictional novel mirroring his experiences in Mexico. Eight cycles of Venus going around the sun have passed since he was made to forget meeting Eduardo and Kevin is now thirty years old. On this fated year Kevin finds out that he doesn't have long to live and is dying of AIDS. And on the night of Halloween when witches rule the night he descends to the Castro to join the feast. On this night all is revealed to him and he remembers as he was promised the truth. He leaves San Francisco and returns to Mexico in search of Eduardo for the meeting and passage of their souls.

Kimberly Woods is the twenty-three-year-old daughter of Pastor Gerald Woods and an only child. Being the only daughter and a pastor’s daughter is the reason why she’s spoiled and of course, her father has money. Pastor Woods is the head of City Hope Church located in Los Angeles, California. Kimberly feels that she’s at the age in which it’s time for her to settle down with a man who she can see herself with for the rest of her life—her husband. She’s been involved with plenty of men, but they were only interested in her because of her title and wealth. One day, she comes across a man named Shea who is the complete opposite of what she’s used to. He doesn’t go to church and isn’t a fan of her nor her father. He actually thinks that people who go to church are hypocrites. Kimberly truly believes that Shea is “the one,” simply because he’s not like the men in her past. He’s a challenge, which is one of the many reasons why she’s attracted to him. Will Pastor Woods get in the middle of Kim and Shea’s relationship? Will their relationship succeed or will it fail due to both of their different lifestyles? Does the preacher’s daughter have another side of her that she doesn’t want anyone to know about?

Book Short Summary:

E. Patrick Johnson's Honeypot opens with the fictional trickster character Miss B. barging into the home of Dr. EPJ, informing him that he has been chosen to collect and share the stories of her people. With little explanation, she whisks the reluctant Dr. EPJ away to the women-only world of Hymen, where she serves as his tour guide as he bears witness to the real-life stories of queer Black women throughout the American South. The women he meets come from all walks of life and recount their experiences on topics ranging from coming out and falling in love to mother/daughter relationships, religion, and political activism. As Dr. EPJ hears these stories, he must grapple with his privilege as a man and as an academic, and in the process he gains insights into patriarchy, class, sex, gender, and the challenges these women face. Combining oral history with magical realism and poetry, Honeypot is an engaging and moving book that reveals the complexity of identity while offering a creative method for scholarship to represent the lives of other people in a rich and dynamic way.

Book Short Summary:

When the world ends, what's left to care about? Taylor Stone is no hero. She has three simple rules for life after the plague: Keep moving. Keep to yourself. Don't get involved. The plague took a particular joy in killing the women of the world, making it that much harder for the few who survived. The only thing that matters since she escaped from a small farm outside of Pittsburgh is the truth waiting at the end of her journey home. The rest of the world, or what's left of it, can go straight to Hell as far as she's concerned. When a group of survivors offers her food and shelter, she is more than happy to spend a few days, take what she needs, and get out, like she always does. But in a place called Burninghead Farm, despite all her rules and plans, Taylor finds a group of people who have more to offer than the basics of survival. Most of all, there is Kate, a woman who makes Taylor realize love is still alive and makes her dream of a future she thought was no longer possible. If only Taylor can find the courage to fight for it. It turns out that the end of the world isn't about the end of the world at all, but about what happens after.

Book Short Summary:

Based upon true events, She Wouldn't Go! The Haunting is the story of Janie and her struggles with one unforgettable spirit. When Janie was young, she was taught how to read the Tarot Cards by her Grandma Vicky, who possessed special knowledge of the spirit world. Her grandmother tells her that she is teaching Janie about the cards because she is special; only later will Janie understand how important this is for her. Janie is aware there is something different about her because she has begun to have premonitions and bad dreams of things to come. When Janie grows up, she meets and falls in love with Bobby; they marry. As most young couples do, they buy their very first home. As they move in, it's an exciting time for them; soon, they learn that they will be adding a child to their family. They are overjoyed with this news and know that theirs will be a happy home. But once their son, Edward, is born, strange things begin to happen in their home. They soon discover there is a very persistent spirit in their home-the spirit of a young girl who wants to take the place of their son because she is enthralled by Edward's mother's love for him. She wants that love-but what might it cost Janie and her family?

Book Short Summary:

Named a Gift Book for the Discerning New Yorker by The New York Times In a metropolis like New York, homelessness can blend into the urban landscape. For editor Susan Greenfield, however, New York is the place where a community of resilient, remarkable individuals are yearning for a voice. Sacred Shelter follows the lives of thirteen formerly homeless people, all of whom have graduated from the life skills empowerment program, an interfaith life skills program for homeless and formerly homeless individuals in New York. Through frank, honest interviews, these individuals share traumas from their youth, their experience with homelessness, and the healing they have discovered through community and faith. Edna Humphrey talks about losing her grandparents, father, and sister to illness, accident, and abuse. Lisa Sperber discusses her bipolar disorder and her whiteness. Dennis Barton speaks about his unconventional path to becoming a first-generation college student and his journey to reconnect with his family. The memoirists share stories about youth, family, jobs, and love. They describe their experiences with racism, mental illness, sexual assault, and domestic violence. Each of the thirteen storytellers honestly expresses his or her brokenheartedness and how finding community and faith gave them hope to carry on. Interspersed among these life stories are reflections from program directors, clerics, mentors, and volunteers who have worked with and in the life skills empowerment program. In his reflection, George Horton shares his deep gratitude for and solidarity with the 500-plus individuals he has come to know since he co-founded the program in 1989. While religion can be divisive, Horton firmly believes that all faiths urge us to “welcome the stranger” and, as Pope Francis asks, “accompany” them through the struggles of life. Through solidarity and suffering, many formerly homeless individuals have found renewed faith in God and community. Beyond trauma and strife, Dorothy Day’s suggestion that “All is grace” is personified in these thirteen stories. Jeremy Kalmanofsky, rabbi at Ansche Chesed Synagogue, says the program points toward a social fabric of encounter and recognition between strangers, who overcome vast differences to face one another, which in Hebrew is called Panim el Panim. While Sacred Shelter does not tackle the socioeconomic conditions and inequities that cause homelessness, it provides a voice for a demographic group that continues to suffer from systemic injustice and marginalization. In powerful, narrative form, it expresses the resilience of individuals who have experienced homelessness and the hope and community they have found. By listening to their stories, we are urged to confront our own woundedness and uncover our desire for human connection, a sacred shelter on the other side of suffering.

Book Short Summary:

By the late 1960’s... The challenge that invigorated early attitudes, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country", seemed to have been long forgotten. Letters from Nam, returning soldiers, and a war that appeared to have no end, had shifted public opinion. "Hell No! We Won’t Go!" was the reply by the end of the decade. Music would swing from doo wop to acid rock. Hair grew from duck tails, to mop tops, ratted and teased, to flowers and beads. This novel is about relationships between people, and the effect that pop culture, and historical events had upon their lives. You know these people, they are your family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and associates... every day, ordinary people. As the trilogy comes to it’s conclusion, Turn on, tune in, drop out...

Book Short Summary:

This book is not a scandal rehash. It describes the evolution of many Compliant Catholics of the largely ethnic, pre-WWII Church into both the Curious and the Critical Catholics of today. It is also about the potential demise of the American Catholic Church in the next few decades unless that evolution continues. The authors mission, based on his own experience and development, is to suggest to todays Compliant Catholics that they not only may, but should become Curious; to demonstrate to already Curious Catholics that it is all right to be Critical; and to encourage Critical Catholics to speak up and be heard among their friends, in their Parishes and throughout their Dioceses. The book is clearly critical of many things about our Religion and the Church, but it is not an exhortation to pack up and leave. In fact, it is a plea to fellow Catholics to realize that they can find and embrace reasons to stay and provide help in getting the Church back on track. The book is not an attempt to convert people to Catholicism nor is it a Theological treatise on elements of the Faith. After reading the manuscript, a good friend, herself educated in Theology, said, You are not a Theologian(but you are) a fiercely loyal critic. This book is addressed to all Catholics, whether practicing or not. The author was born in 1930, during the golden age of Catholicism in the United States, which was rooted in the ethnic parishes of every city. Now, seven and a half decades later, he is a very different kind of Catholic, who despite the controversial election of Pope Benedict XVI is cautiously optimistic about the future. When the author was growing up, his Religion was inextricably entangled with family, society, politics and nearly every other phase of life. It was an Immigrant Church, although many of its members were by then second and third generation citizens. From their midst they had provided a strong clergy and an army of Religious, who staffed excellent schools, colleges and hospitals. These were Compliant Catholics, trained in that tradition through the firm, but usually gentle authority and discipline of the Church. These people didnt know that they were Compliant Catholics and no one called them that, because that was the only kind of Catholics there were at that time. They were taught that there was much somewhat undefined important work to be done and little time to spend discussing dogma or alternatives. There were also strong indications that not only would it be imprudent to introduce such discussions, but also that they would not be tolerated if they were introduced. Compliant Catholics were defined by their Religion, instead of being supported by it. That Religion, in turn, was specified and taught, monitored and adjudicated by the Church, which itself was largely an enigma to its members. As the author grew up he became falsely comfortable and secure in his Religious beliefs; shielded by the Church from contrary opinion; but with no real sense of the meaning of Faith. In the first two chapters, the author describes that not always subtle indoctrination, which extended through his high school years. At first, his training as a Compliant Catholicism came by example from his parents. Then it was the Nuns, first in Religious Education classes and later in Parochial School. Finally in a private boys high school the Brothers of the Christian Schools, an order founded in France, taught him their version. Authority and Discipline, not Faith. The next five Chapters deal with the evolution of some of the Compliant Catholics of the authors generation and their offspring, through the intermediate stage of being Curious Catholics and beyond into the Critical Catholics found today in sizable numbers in the American Catholic Church. This evolution had its roots in the
