Book Excerpt :

As Leeza celebrates her forty-fifth birthday, there is no birthday cake, candles, gifts, or party with family and friends. It’s just her, alone in a prison cell probably for the rest of her life. She contemplates how her life has gone so completely off track, and she recalls how it all began for her as a little girl growing up in Eden Square in the projects. Leeza wishes she could go back to being the little girl with the bad grammar and the big dreams, but it’s much too late for that now. She faces a death sentence. A work of spiritual fiction, Little Miss Sanctified, by author Dr. Louis Timm’s, lets God’s people know they are not alone and that there is that dark side that exists in all. Through Leeza’s fictional story, Timm’s shows Christians that the hand of a loving and living God offers a right sense of worth and direction; God alone knows the end from the beginning. With each and every temptation, God will provide a way of escape only to those who truly want to escape the vices this world so lavishly offers.

Book Short Summary:

There is nothing like the Reformed Apprentice workbook series anywhere in the Christian community. It is designed to bring Reformed Theology to Christians seeking a deeper walk with Jesus Christ in the form of a workbook, not simply a text to read. In old England, an apprentice was a novice who engaged in a covenant with a tradesman to learn a particular trade. A workbook of this kind for today’s Christian, was created to engage the student of the Bible to be apprenticed under the historical pastors, theologians and teachers of Reformed Theology. As the Christian learns and grows in Christ through the Bible, they mature into a Reformed Apprentice. As with each of the workbooks in this series, its purpose is to guide the Christian into a deeper knowledge and relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, as he has revealed himself to the church in his Word and by his Spirit through the centuries in Reformed Theology. Cultivating a relationship with Christ takes work; and every Christian is commanded by God to have communion with the Father, through Christ, in the power of the Spirit. How powerful is your devotional life? This volume specifically covers the three spiritual disciplines which make up private devotions in bible reading and study, prayer and godly meditation. It extensively quotes the Reformers, the Puritans, and Reformed theologians from various ages in order to aid the Reformed Apprentice in coming to a knowledge of what truly constitutes biblical private devotions as taught in Scripture, Reformed Theology and the Reformed Faith.

Book Short Summary:

Albertina Merci is back in this delightful second book featuring everyone’s favorite blues singer turned evangelist! After Albertina’s dear friend Mr. Mario, the owner of Mr. Mario’s Downhome Café, has a heart attack and then loses his wife to diabetes, he decides that his lifetime love of soul food is over for good. Mr. Mario vows to go healthy, both personally and professionally, and tries to get Albertina on board, but it quickly becomes clear that he may be looking for more than pastoral support. And while he is undeniably romantic, Mr. Mario believes in the power of man…not God. The only heat isn’t in the kitchen, though. Clifford Bloom, a white DJ who has been a fan of Albertina’s since her days as a blues singer, is now a member of her church and he always seems to be there just when Albertina needs him. Could this blossoming friendship be leading somewhere romantic? Caught between two very different men, Pastor Merci also has to battle to save her little church in the heart of Los Angeles as mega-church pastor Bishop Gold wants not only the land where her church sits, but her nephew Patrick’s loyalty, as well.

Book Short Summary:

Example in this ebook CHAPTER I. A DISTANT VIEW. On the second of January, in the year 1880, three newly-orphaned sisters, finding themselves left to their own devices, with an income of exactly one hundred pounds a year a-piece, sat down to consult together as to the use they should make of their independence. The place where they sat was a grassy cliff overlooking a wide bay of the Southern Ocean—a lonely spot, whence no sign of human life was visible, except in the sail of a little fishing boat far away. The low sun, that blazed at the back of their heads, and threw their shadows and the shadow of every blade of grass into relief, touched that distant sail and made it shine like bridal satin; while a certain island rock, the home of sea-birds, blushed like a rose in the same necromantic light. As they sat, they could hear the waves breaking and seething on the sands and stones beneath them, but could only see the level plain of blue and purple water stretching from the toes of their boots to the indistinct horizon. That particular Friday was a terribly hot day for the colony, as weather records testify, but in this favoured spot it had been merely a little too warm for comfort, and, the sea-breeze coming up fresher and stronger as the sun went down, it was the perfection of an Australian summer evening at the hour of which I am writing. "What I want," said Patty King (Patty was the middle one), "is to make a dash—a straight-out plunge into the world, Elizabeth—no shilly-shallying and dawdling about, frittering our money away before we begin. Suppose we go to London—we shall have enough to cover our travelling expenses, and our income to start fair with—surely we could live anywhere on three hundred a year, in the greatest comfort—and take rooms near the British Museum?—or in South Kensington?—or suppose we go to one of those intellectual German towns, and study music and languages? What do you think, Nell? I am sure we could do it easily if we tried." "Oh," said Eleanor, the youngest of the trio, "I don't care so long as we go somewhere, and do something." "What do you think, Elizabeth?" pursued the enterprising Patty, alert and earnest. "Life is short, and there is so much for us to see and learn—all these years and years we have been out of it so utterly! Oh, I wonder how we have borne it! How have we borne it—to hear about things and never to know or do them, like other people! Let us get into the thick of it at once, and recover lost time. Once in Europe, everything would be to our hand—everything would be possible. What do you think?" "My dear," said Elizabeth, with characteristic caution, "I think we are too young and ignorant to go so far afield just yet." "We are all over twenty-one," replied Patty quickly, "and though we have lived the lives of hermits, we are not more stupid than other people. We can speak French and German, and we are quite sharp enough to know when we are being cheated. We should travel in perfect safety, finding our way as we went along. And we do know something of those places—of Melbourne we know nothing." "We should never get to the places mother knew—the sort of life we have heard of. And Mr. Brion and Paul are with us here—they will tell us all we want to know. No, Patty, we must not be reckless. We might go to Europe by-and-bye, but for the present let Melbourne content us. It will be as much of the world as we shall want to begin with, and we ought to get some experience before we spend our money—the little capital we have to spend." "You don't call two hundred and thirty-five pounds a little, do you?" interposed Eleanor. This was the price that a well-to-do storekeeper in the neighbouring township had offered them for the little house which had been their home since she was born, and to her it seemed a fortune.

Book Short Summary:

More panoramic in scope and more realistic in its details than Crane's Red Badge of Courage, this is one of the first and best novels ever written about the American Civil War Drawing on his own combat experience with the Union forces, John W. De Forest crafted a war novel like nothing before it in the annals of American literature. His first-hand knowledge of "the wilderness of death" made its way on to the pages of his riveting novel with devastating effect. Whether depicting the tedium before combat, the unspoken horror of battle, or the grisly butchery of the field hospital, De Forest broke new ground, anticipating the realistic war writings of Ernest Hemingway, Norman Mailer, and Tim O'Brien. A commercial failure in its own day, De Forest's story was praised by Henry James and William Dean Howells, who, comparing it favorably to War and Peace, acclaimed the book "one of the best American novels ever written." For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Book Short Summary:

This book heels on the previous writing of All of Ya'll Not Hailing from the North. My trusted critics, my kinfolks, said that I didn't tell the full story, didn't even scratch the surface. So after such rig-a-mo-role, I am back to make another stob (stab) at it. Once More and Again is the second book of a series called My Country Breaks up in Town. This writing continues to tell the stories of our foreparents, incorporating some of their wild, winsome, witty, ofttimes, wicked sayings and antics. It was designed for you and our future generations in mind, to let them know from whence they came so that they ne'er (never) burn the bridge down that brought them over. Read the scripture Psalm 78:6 and see if we aren't cooking with gas on this. Learn that! Be prepared to laugh, and laugh some more, folks, as we stir your memory of how it used to be.

Book Short Summary:

Do you believe you were born to change the world? And do you think its actually possible? These are two questions to ask yourself before you even read this book. This is because this book is for those whose aim is to make a difference in this world. Its for those who are unsatisfied with allowing darkness, injustice, and hopelessness to enslave people and who want to be part of a counter-culture attack that brings true freedom. Now, is this book for you? I will say this: We need you. We need as many people as we can get to join a generation that is called to action. Do you know Jesus and are seeking what it means to follow Him in a deeper, more radical way? Are you looking for ways to make your faith come alive? Do you want your life to have meaning? Have you longed to see Gods kingdom come? Is your soul hungry for more? Will you be willing to give whatever it takes to see transformation come to you and the people around you? In my own reflection to answer all these questions, I believe there is a key. It is something called holy passion. Its a holy passion for Jesus that fills you and causes movement in ways you have never experienced before. Embrace a new journey of holy passion in action. It will be one you will never forget.

Book Short Summary:

After Redemption fills in a missing chapter in the history of African American life after freedom. It takes on the widely overlooked period between the end of Reconstruction and World War I to examine the sacred world of ex-slaves and their descendants living in the region more densely settled than any other by blacks living in this era, the Mississippi and Arkansas Delta. Drawing on a rich range of local memoirs, newspaper accounts, photographs, early blues music, and recently unearthed Works Project Administration records, John Giggie challenges the conventional view that this era marked the low point in the modern evolution of African-American religion and culture. Set against a backdrop of escalating racial violence in a region more densely populated by African Americans than any other at the time, he illuminates how blacks adapted to the defining features of the post-Reconstruction South-- including the growth of segregation, train travel, consumer capitalism, and fraternal orders--and in the process dramatically altered their spiritual ideas and institutions. Masterfully analyzing these disparate elements, Giggie's study situates the African-American experience in the broadest context of southern, religious, and American history and sheds new light on the complexity of black religion and its role in confronting Jim Crow.

Book Short Summary:

She was a rather tall, awkward, and strongly-built girl of about fifteen. This was the first impression the "maid" gave to her "mistresses," the Misses Leaf, when she entered their kitchen, accompanied by her mother, a widow and washer-woman, by name Mrs. Hand. I must confess, when they saw the damsel, the ladies felt a certain twinge of doubt as to whether they had not been rash in offering to take her; whether it would not have been wiser to have gone on in their old way - now, alas! grown into a very old way, so as almost to make them forget they had ever had any other - and done without a servant still.

Book Short Summary:

Today, many evangelicals in the Russian-speaking world emphasize sanctification as a distinctive mark of their Christian faith. This is a unique characteristic, particularly in the European context. Their historic tapestry has been woven from a number of threads that originated in the second half of the nineteenth century. Missionary efforts of the German Baptists, a revival sparked by a British evangelist, and a pietistic awakening among the Mennonites in the South converged to form a tapestry that displays Protestant, Baptist, and Anabaptist heritage. Ivan Kargel uniquely participated in the formation and ministry of each of these threads. His life spans from Tsarist Russia to the Soviet Union. Kargel refused to adhere to a systematic view of theology. Instead, he urged believers to go to Scripture and draw from the riches of a life united with Christ. Kargel's influence today is keenly felt across the Russian-speaking evangelical world as they seek to identify the roots of their spiritual identity. This book examines the influences on Ivan Kargel and offers insights into how his life and work are expressed in the tapestry of Russian evangelical spirituality.

Book Short Summary:

Finally available in trade paperback, Langston Hughes’s breezy parable of good and evil, friendship and betrayal, is an unforgettable portrait of 1950s Harlem and two women called to the pulpit for very different reasons. For every bustling jazz joint that opened in Korean War–era Harlem, a new church seemed to spring up. Tambourines to Glory introduces you to an unlikely team behind a church whose rock was the curb at 126th and Lenox. Essie Belle Johnson and Laura Reed live in adjoining tenement flats, adrift on public relief. Essie wants to somehow earn enough money to reunite with her daughter and provide her with a nice home; Laura loves young men, mink coats, and fine Scotch. On a day of inspiration, the friends decide to use a thrift-store tambourine and a layaway Bible to start a church. Their sidewalk services are a hit: Laura’s a natural street performer who loves the limelight, while Essie is a charismatic singer with a quiet spirituality. Before long they move to a thousand-seat theatre called the Tambourine Temple. The two women are joined in their ministering by Birdie Lee, the little-old-lady trap drummer who can work the congregation to a feverish pitch, and Deacon Crow-For-Day, an impassioned confessor. But then Laura falls for Buddy, a scam artist who suggests selling to the faithful lucky numbers from Scripture and bottles of tap water as “Holy Water from the Jordan.” Even with a Cadillac and piles of money from Laura, Buddy won’t stay faithful, igniting a crime of passion and betrayal. Harlem Moon Classics is proud to reintroduce readers of all generations to this sparkling gem from the canon of Langston Hughes.

To win the aforementioned War Against Evil, four mantic objects of great power had been summoned forth from dark recesses in which they had lain secreted for a thousand year—since, in fact, the last Great War Against Evil. But there was a reason these objects had been buried so long ago: if they are left in the open for any length of time the forces that emanate start to combine—and Bad Things start to happen. Dinosaurs come to battle dragons, and 747s eclipse the Moon—and that’s just for starters. So it is that our heroes must leave hearth and home to go upon their four separate anti-quests to bury for another thousand years the powers that saved the world. And you can join them—Forever After…. With Robert Asprin, David Drake, Jane Lindskold & Mike Stackpole. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Book Short Summary:

Development Arrested is a major reinterpretation of the two-centuries-old conflict between the African Americans and planters in the Mississippi Delta. In a definitive study of the history and social structures of the plantation system, Clyde Woods examines both planter domination of politics and economy in the region and the continuing resistance of the African American working class to the system’s depredations. “Development Arrested” traces the decline and resurrection of plantation ideology in national public policy discourse from Thopmas Jefferson to Bill Clinton. Woods documents the unceasing attacks on the gains of the Civil Rights Movement and how, despite having suffered countless defeats at the hands of the planet regime, African Americans in the Delta have continued to push forward their agenda for social, economic, and cultural justice. He ecamines the role of the Blues in sustaining their efforts, surveying a musical tradition-including Jazz, Rock and Rolll, Soul and Rap-that has embraced a radical vision of social change. This is an important contribution to the current political debates involving Mississippi politics, the presidency and Congress, and to our understanding of Black, US, and Southern history.

Book Short Summary:

Sing Her Name follows two musically gifted women whose lives overlap across the boundaries of time. This third novel by Rosalyn Story, whose critically acclaimed books treat the central role of Black people in American music, is her best and most rewarding yet. Beautiful and brilliantly talented Celia DeMille is a nineteenth-century concert artist who has garnered fame, sung all over the world, and amassed a fortune. But prejudice bars her from achieving her place in history as one of the world’s greatest singers, and she dies in poverty and obscurity. In 21st-century New Orleans, Eden Malveaux, a thirty-something waitress with a beautiful but untutored voice, is the sole guardian of her 17-year-old brother. Motherless for most of their lives, she has struggled for years to make ends meet as she fights to keep the promise she made to their dying father: to protect her wayward brother and raise him as if he were her own child. After a hurricane displaces them to New York City, Eden seeks safe refuge—not only from the ensuing flood, but also to hide her brother from the law, while she works to divert him from a path of crime, prison, or worse. Months into their New York stay, Eden’s estranged Great Aunt Julia summons her back to New Orleans for a brief visit, and the older woman gives Eden something that alters the course of her life: a box she found in the midst of flooded rubble containing a hundred-year-old scrapbook and a mysterious and valuable gold pendant necklace belonging to one of the greatest singers in history—Celia DeMille. Eden returns to New York, but as she explores the artifacts of Celia DeMille’s extraordinary life, curiosity grows into obsession, then into an inspiration that propels Eden into a world she never dreamed. With the help of new friends, and buoyed by the diva’s story, Eden’s new life in New York takes a dramatic turn toward unimagined success. But just as she is poised to make her mark on the world stage, her brother’s dangerous choices catch up with them, and Eden must confront buried secrets from her complicated childhood. To face the promise of her future, Eden must first reconcile years of regrets and leave behind the guilt of the past—and perhaps even the brother she loves.

Book Short Summary:

John Fletcher's theology of Pentecost is generally unknown today, and this book is the first comprehensive treatise on this subject. His writings were in large part responsible for shaping the theology of early American Methodism, especially his treatise on Christian Perfection, which highlighted a theology of Pentecostal sanctification. Wood recounts the decisive influence Fletcher had on early Methodism, and shows that his writings were able to "control the opinions of the largest and most effective body of evangelical clergymen of the earth." Fletcher's views on the Holy Spirit were also relevant in the ecumenical movement, specifically with reference to the World Council of Churches Commission on Faith and Order held in Lima, Peru, in 1982. This group recommended the introduction of a liturgy of the Spirit in Christian baptism. For students and scholars or general readers interested in Methodist history and theology. Also a resource for pastors-helpful in developing a theology of Pentecost that will preach in a relevant way in the contemporary world.

Book Short Summary:

To date there has not been a clear look at the home care experience of older African Americans. "Surviving Dependence: Voices of African American Elders" attempts to meet the need for recording and interpreting the ordinary life of elderly African Americans on their own terms, in their own surroundings, and in so far as possible, in their own words. Ball and Whittington's research is unique in two ways: it focuses on older people who are African American and poor, and it describes the viewpoint of care recipients and their relationships with the public programs designed to help them. This book provides an in-depth view of the experiences of these seven frail elders as both care receivers and as active participants in their own care. The two primary themes the significant disabilities that often accompany old age and the tenacious will and ability to cope possessed by our informants are reflected in the title: "Surviving Dependence."

Book Short Summary:

Miss Georgia, a bright eyed highly intelligent young woman, was slain seven years prior to the brutal murder of young Emmett Till. Regarded as an innocent, she was ahead of her times in many ways but lagged behind, awaiting others to confirm her worth. On the Ides of August, the bush shook from a thunderous racist footprint, a lurid brazen code for well-rehearsed iniquity and indisputable impiety owned by those sharing an unverifiable relationship with humanity. Toting the onerous burden of this ghastly, dark and regaled secret for some fifty long years, holding back nothing, the author reveals rather raunchy dealings privately known and secretly inferred. Miss Georgias story was adversely impacted by an onslaught of bizarre characters and circumstances. Her cryptic demise was a symbol of the quintessence darkest of times, for the prevailing mentality coddled and coveted apathy, letting sleeping dogs lie where they lay. Swishing away moral correctness like a light dusting of coal cleverly disguised as discolored rhyme and poetic jive, far too many good folk turned a blind eye, overlooking overt wickedness. Hush now. Early one wintry morn, somebody was chanting at the Old Negro Cemetery. The apparition of the Ghost of Miss Georgia Past was spiritedly conceded. Yet, for her story to meritoriously support a national kitchen table conversation, ground breaking dialogue that will hopefully help bridge the gaping American rift, her voice must be resurrected with clarity of purpose. Miss Georgia has her say so, adding fresh perspective to an overdue discussion, one worthy of having, one fostering the ideal of racial parity and reconciliation. Her liberated voice can be heard loud and clear by those owning an impeccable sense of ought and naught, folk swayed by the bush that still shakes.
