Book Description :

Have you ever felt that you weren't doing enough good, that you weren't doing enough to help others who are suffering? Jeremiah Dreeman had these thoughts. He is a lawyer working for the Legal Aid Society in New York City. Unlike his fellow graduates from law school, he wasn't in the job for riches. He wanted only to serve others, to give of himself. But Jeremiah's altruism was its own form of greed. Where they wanted to acquire more possessions, Jeremiah wanted to do more good. He wouldn't be satisfied with doing his small part, and he was willing to give away his very salvation to try and save all of mankind. But Jeremiah discovers that even being too good can be corrupting, and there is a terrible price to be paid by many.

Book Description :

The New York Times bestseller from the author of Help, Thanks, Wow, Hallelujah Anyway, Almost Everything, and Dusk, Night, Dawn. Lamott's long-awaited collection of new and selected essays on hope, joy, and grace. Anne Lamott writes about faith, family, and community in essays that are both wise and irreverent. It’s an approach that has become her trademark. Now in Small Victories, Lamott offers a new message of hope that celebrates the triumph of light over the darkness in our lives. Our victories over hardship and pain may seem small, she writes, but they change us—our perceptions, our perspectives, and our lives. Lamott writes of forgiveness, restoration, and transformation, how we can turn toward love even in the most hopeless situations, how we find the joy in getting lost and our amazement in finally being found. Profound and hilarious, honest and unexpected, the stories in Small Victories are proof that the human spirit is irrepressible.

Book Description :

An internationally best-selling debut novel about the life, marriage, and legacy of one of the greatest mathematicians of the last century Princeton University 1980. Kurt Gödel, the most fascinating, though hermetic, mathematician of the twentieth century, has just died of anorexia. His widow, Adele, a fierce woman shunned by her husband’s colleagues because she had been a cabaret dancer, is now consigned to a nursing home. To the great annoyance of the Institute of Advanced Studies, she refuses to hand over Gödel’s precious records. Anna Roth, the timid daughter of two mathematicians who are part of the Princeton clique, is given the difficult task of befriending Adele and retrieving the documents from her. As Adele begins to notice Anna’s own estrangement from her milieu and starts to trust her, she opens the gates of her memory and together they travel back to Vienna during the Nazi era, Princeton right after the war, the pressures of McCarthyism, the end of the positivist ideal, and the advent of nuclear weapons. It is this epic story of a genius who could never quite find his place in the world, and the determination of the woman who loved him, that will eventually give Anna the courage to change her own life.

Book Description :

A scathingly funny debut novel about disillusionment, indifference, and one man's desperate fight to assign absolutely no meaning to modern life. The only thing Shane cares about is leaving. Usually on a Greyhound bus, right before his life falls apart again. Just like he planned. But this time it's complicated: there's a sadistic corporate climber who thinks she's his girlfriend, a rent-subsidized affair with his landlord's wife, and the bizarrely appealing deaf assistant to Shane's cosmically unstable dentist. When one of the women is murdered, and Shane is the only suspect who doesn't care enough to act like he didn't do it, the question becomes just how he'll clear the good name he never had and doesn't particularly want: his own. “The malaise of cubicle culture may be well-trodden comedic territory by now, but Neilan's debut skewers office life with a flourish for the grotesque.” —The Village Voice

Book Description :

Little Victories, Small Defeats Our world is fully capable of taking an innocent, sensitive, intelligent young man and through death, hypocrisy, retribution and remorse turn him into a drifting, aimless shell of what he might have been. That this happens to James Branaugh is not a story in itself. That James can find his way back from a useless existence, find and give lasting love, and muster the will to redeem his place in society while battling for his life, is a story. That tale comprises the theme of this book. James, the central character, hails from a small farm in the back country of West Virginia. Before his life can really begin, he is left spiritually destitute through the death of his wife and daughter at the hands of a small time drug dealer, and morally adrift by his own redress of the crime. The next several decades of idle wander brings him full circle to his boyhood home. This return is made to finally embrace peace and live his remaining years amid the soothing comfort of the ancestral farm. Before any solace is found, James finds himself in the middle of an old and on-going Machiavellian plot to acquire or control all lands in the immediate area including his own. The ever escalating war of greed is delivered to his doorstep by none other than a US Senator and County Sheriff. Thankfully, James does not have to fight alone, and acquires fellow soldiers in the form of a crippled lawyer, half crazy woodsman, renegade FBI agent and a two-fisted lover. The battles rage from Washington townhouses to high pasture barns and include some decidedly undesirables in hand-to-hand fighting. Someone once said that “all real stories end in death”. Death is no stranger to the characters in this archetypical yarn of good versus evil. Set among bucolic hills, the rustic normalcy of country life serves as counterpoint to the chaotic appeal of contemporary living. The charm of simplicity stands in stark contrast to the narcotic of progress. This blend of contradictory desires and lifestyles forms the backdrop for a reflection on greed gone mad. That James can succeed is given. Whether he does and how he goes about it is the story.

Book Description :

Have you ever wondered what it would take for a brainwashed, suicidal victim of a cult to be able to live a normal life? I know a little more than some about deliverance. Once I was told I was possessed by demons and a danger to all those around me. I stayed up many a night being "delivered," coughing up "demons." Told I didn't have enough faith or I was in love with the demon inside of me and I didn't want to let it go. I went to many a prayer meeting, but the "demons" wouldn't let go. Or so I thought. The demons were not what was inside of me; it was the company I kept who was around me. They piled lie upon lie upon lie in my mind. Why? I don't know. For manipulation, for control, for kicks, or maybe out of ignorance. It almost broke me. It took me to the edge of my sanity, and let me tell you, it's been a long way coming back. Have you ever been there? What darkness do you face? Are you on the edge of your sanity? Let me tell you there is a peace that belongs to those who belong to Christ. This book will show you how a life with Christ is the only way to be fully set free from the situation that you face. This book will shine the light of hope into your life. Set Free through Christ Who Strengthens Me is my journey from being a victim of a cult to living a full life with Christ. Come share the journey with me and see how Christ will be your strength when you are at your darkest hour.

Book Description :

Have you ever felt stuck? Have you ever felt as though there are more of God's promises to be had but something keeps you from moving toward them? It's a place in life where your God-given goals, dreams, and desires seem unobtainable, a place where growth has ceased and you can't seem to get past the plateau of complacency or mediocracy. Whether it's in your marriage, your career, your church, or ministry, there are always new levels of life, faith, and ministry that God wants us to experience. We must understand however, that our journey to the promises of God will not be an easy one. As Christians, we have been placed on a Pathway to Promise; but the enemy will do everything in his power to steal, kill, and destroy our ability to move forward on this path and reach our promises. Pathway to Promise first looks at the early days of the life of David. As we take an in-depth look at the epic battle between David and Goliath, we will see certain principles established in his life that allowed him to live the life of an overcomer, and it will teach us how to overcome the enemy that continually stands between us and the promises of God. We will also explore the principles displayed early in Jesus's life that allowed him to move in power as he did. Our pathway to promise ultimately leads us to heaven, but God's will is for us to bring as many people as possible with us. In the second half of this book, we will use the early days of Jesus's life and ministry as an outline in discovering how we too can Move in Power as Christ calls us. David's life teaches us to overcome the enemy that comes against us, but Jesus's life teaches us to overcome the enemy that comes against others. Galatians 6:12 teaches us that our struggles in life are the result of the spiritual forces of evil that continually come against us. Therefore, as God's children who have been placed on a pathway to promise, learning to overcome is one of the most important lessons we can learn. Pathway to Promise: Learning to Overcome is a practical guide designed to help us overcome the spiritual forces of evil trying to keep us from the promises of God.

Book Description :

The Wall Street Journal's popular columnist Jason Gay delivers a hilarious and heartfelt guide to modern living. “The book you hold in your hand is a rule book. There have been rule books before—stacks upon stacks of them—but this book is unlike any other rule book you have ever read. It will not make you rich in twenty-four hours, or even seventy-two hours. It will not cause you to lose eighty pounds in a week. This book has no abdominal exercises. I have been doing abdominal exercises for most of my adult life, and my abdomen looks like it’s always looked. It looks like flan. Syrupy flan. So we can just limit those expectations. This book does not offer a crash diet or a plan for maximizing your best self. I don’t know a thing about your best self. It may be embarrassing. Your best self might be sprinkling peanut M&M’s onto rest-stop pizza as we speak. I cannot promise that this book is a road map to success. And we should probably set aside the goal of total happiness. There’s no such thing. I would, however, like for it to make you laugh. Maybe think. I believe it is possible to find, at any age, a new appreciation for what you have—and what you don’t have—as well as for the people closest to you. There’s a way to experience life that does not involve a phone, a tablet, a television screen. There’s also a way to experience life that does not involve eating seafood at the airport, because you should really never eat seafood at the airport. Like the title says, I want us all to achieve little victories. I believe that happiness is derived less from a significant single accomplishment than it is from a series of successful daily maneuvers. Maybe it’s the way you feel when you walk out the door after drinking six cups of coffee, or surviving a family vacation, or playing the rowdy family Thanksgiving touch football game, or just learning to embrace that music at the gym. Accomplishments do not have to be large to be meaningful. I think little victories are the most important ones in life.” — From the Introduction

Book Description :

In this sequel to Conversations with Kentucky Writers, L. Elisabeth Beattie brings together in-depth interviews with sixteen of the state's premiere wordsmiths. This new volume offers the perspectives of poets, journalists, and scholars as they discuss their views on creativity, the teaching of writing, and the importance of Kentucky in their work. They talk frankly about how and why they do what they do. The writers speak for themselves, and their thoughts come alive on the page. Beattie's interviews reveal the allegiances and alliances among Kentucky writers that have shaped literary trends by bringing together people with shared interests, values, subjects, and styles. The interviewees include authors who are captivated in other writers and in what they have to say about the process and craft of writing; educators who are interested in Kentucky writers and what their work reveals about the nature of creativity; and historians who are concerned with Kentucky's literary and cultural heritage. The interviews reveal patterns in Kentucky literature from mid-century to the millennium, as authors talk about how their sense of place has changed over the decades and reveal the ways in which the roots of Kentucky writing have produced a literary flowering at the century's end. Includes: Sallie Bingham, Joy Bale Boone, Thomas D. Clark, John Egerton, Sarah Gorham, Lynwood Montell, Maureen Morehead, John Ed Pearce, Ameilia Blossom Pegram, Karen Robards, Jeffrey Skinner, Frederick Smock, Frank Steele, Martha Bennett Stiles, Richard Taylor, and Michael Williams.
