Book Description :

At the dawn of the twentieth century, a great confidence suffused America. Isaac Cline was one of the era's new men, a scientist who believed he knew all there was to know about the motion of clouds and the behavior of storms. The idea that a hurricane could damage the city of Galveston, Texas, where he was based, was to him preposterous, "an absurd delusion." It was 1900, a year when America felt bigger and stronger than ever before. Nothing in nature could hobble the gleaming city of Galveston, then a magical place that seemed destined to become the New York of the Gulf. That August, a strange, prolonged heat wave gripped the nation and killed scores of people in New York and Chicago. Odd things seemed to happen everywhere: A plague of crickets engulfed Waco. The Bering Glacier began to shrink. Rain fell on Galveston with greater intensity than anyone could remember. Far away, in Africa, immense thunderstorms blossomed over the city of Dakar, and great currents of wind converged. A wave of atmospheric turbulence slipped from the coast of western Africa. Most such waves faded quickly. This one did not. In Cuba, America's overconfidence was made all too obvious by the Weather Bureau's obsession with controlling hurricane forecasts, even though Cuba's indigenous weathermen had pioneered hurricane science. As the bureau's forecasters assured the nation that all was calm in the Caribbean, Cuba's own weathermen fretted about ominous signs in the sky. A curious stillness gripped Antigua. Only a few unlucky sea captains discovered that the storm had achieved an intensity no man alive had ever experienced. In Galveston, reassured by Cline's belief that no hurricane could seriously damage the city, there was celebration. Children played in the rising water. Hundreds of people gathered at the beach to marvel at the fantastically tall waves and gorgeous pink sky, until the surf began ripping the city's beloved beachfront apart. Within the next few hours Galveston would endure a hurricane that to this day remains the nation's deadliest natural disaster. In Galveston alone at least 6,000 people, possibly as many as 10,000, would lose their lives, a number far greater than the combined death toll of the Johnstown Flood and 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. And Isaac Cline would experience his own unbearable loss. Meticulously researched and vividly written, Isaac's Storm is based on Cline's own letters, telegrams, and reports, the testimony of scores of survivors, and our latest understanding of the hows and whys of great storms. Ultimately, however, it is the story of what can happen when human arrogance meets nature's last great uncontrollable force. As such, Isaac's Storm carries a warning for our time.

In this book, you will find the key to staying at peace when storms come into your life. Your faith will grow, your attitude will change and you will be strengthened greatly. In the end, you will know some of the causes of your storms and regardless of the situation, God is in control. Through these pages you will understand that the same God who created the heavens and the earth and sustains the universe in his hands is the same one who sustains you in the most difficult moments of your life. Today he says, "Do not be afraid, in spite of what is happening, I am God and I am with you. I want to show you how to fly over your storm so that you can rest in me regardless of the circumstances." There is healing, restoration and a new beginning for your life. No matter how impossible your situation seems, rest on the promises of the Lord. He has a happy ending for you, but he wants you to learn how to trust him. You will learn how to use the winds of persecution to your advantage because you have been chosen to triumph. Watch out, though, for you will receive an infectious passion that will make it impossible to stay in the same spiritual level. Instead, it will bring you to higher heights until you finally reach the presence of God where you will be able to have unforgettable moments with the King. Pastor Edna L. Isaac has traveled to different countries as a missionary. She holds an Associate's Degree in Christian Counseling and is presently pursuing two Masters. Also, she serves as pastor of Casa de Adoracion Inc. (House of Worship) in Taunton, MA along with her husband, Francisco Isaac, three daughters, Charaliz, Krystaliz and Angeliz as well as her son, Nathiel.

Book Description :

For more than 30 years, Ken Loach's films have examined the social, political, economic, and psychological costs of living in Great Britain. These invariably controversial film and television works--Cathy Come Home, Kes, Hidden Agenda, Riff-Raff, and Land and Freedom, among others--represent a continuing commitment to using film for political purposes. In this first English-language book on Loach, McKnight brings together seven original critical essays on major aspects of Loach's work, an interview with the director, as well as comprehensive reference material. The essays examine Loach's ongoing concerns with social and political issues in Britain, questions of censorship, the way in which he develops film narratives around public issues, and the format and stylistic questions raised by his particular approach to filmmaking. An important collection for all students and researchers of contemporary film.
