Book Summary:

For over a century, many have struggled to turn the Constitution's prime goal "to establish Justice" into reality for Americans who cannot afford lawyers through civil legal aid. This book explains how and why. • Provides a unique resource for law students enrolled in courses on poverty law, professional responsibility, access to justice, and legal history, as well as for professors teaching these subjects • Enables readers to see how changes in the larger society have brought new challenges to legal aid institutions—or old challenges in new guises • Presents a comprehensive, informed overview of civil legal aid written from the perspective of a former professor of law, director of the War on Poverty's legal services program, and appellate judge • Explores the unusual partnership between a governmental program funding civil legal aid lawyers and an outside professional organization dominated by wealthy corporate lawyers, the American Bar Association (ABA), and how the ABA used its political influence and advocacy to protect lawyers serving the poor when they faced opposition in Congress or the White House • Documents the remarkable impact of legal services lawyers during the War on Poverty era, including the more than 60 cases they won in the United States Supreme Court in just a 7-year span • Describes how those supporting legal services in some states managed to develop new innovative sources of funding, such as interest earned on lawyers' trust accounts, when federal revenues for civil legal aid dropped during the 1980s and 1990s • Provides a revealing case study for those interested in the War on Poverty or other social programs helping the poor

Book Summary:

This collection of selected sermons by Pastor Kurt Jacobson is a treasure that spans twenty-eight years of service. Revisit Pastor Kurt's most powerful and compelling sermons that bring hope and good news to our lives! For people of Trinity Lutheran Church in Eau Claire who were in the congregation when Pastor Kurt delivered these sermons, you will hear his voice and see his body language as you read each one. Your readings will take you back to that year, that church service, that Bible passage, and Kurt's moving message. The congregation and guests of Trinity Lutheran Church were blessed to have Pastor Kurt's unique mix of passion, intellect and storytelling from the altar. Pastor Kurt's sermons highlight current events and the daily lives of his congregants, while incorporating rich imagery and stories from the Bible. For example, in April 2011, Pastor Kurt delivered his Palm Sunday sermon entitled "Two Parades Then, Two Parades Now." Pastor Kurt presented a viewpoint of Pilate's parade entering Jerusalem from the west and Jesus' parade entering Jerusalem from the "opposite side of town." What a riveting comparison! The description of the pageantry of Pilate's parade, juxtaposed against Jesus' humble parade, and Pastor's relation to current events, provided a thought- provoking and deeply moving experience. Again, Pastor Kurt delivered a powerful message to all. Now, we can all appreciate and reminisce as we read the collection of Pastor Kurt's selected sermons from his twenty-eight-year career at Trinity Lutheran Church in Eau Claire. Thank you for this generous gift of hope and good news, Pastor Kurt!

Book Summary:

Miriam Waddington's verse is deceptively accessible: it is personal but never private, emotional but not confessional, thoughtful but never cerebral. The subtlety of her craft is the hallmark of a modernist poet whose work opens to the world and its readers. She details intoxicating romance and mature love, the pleasures of marriage and motherhood, the experience of raising two sons to adulthood, and the ineffable pain of divorce. As she moved through life, she wrote clearly and uncompromisingly about the vast sweep of Canada, her travels to new lands, the passage of time, the death of her ex-husband, the loss of close friends and, later, of growing old.

Book Summary:

One of India’s greatest epics, the Ramayana pervades the country’s moral and cultural consciousness. For generations it has served as a bedtime story for Indian children, while at the same time engaging the interest of philosophers and theologians. Believed to have been composed by Valmiki sometime between the eighth and sixth centuries BCE, the Ramayana tells the tragic and magical story of Rama, the prince of Ayodhya, an incarnation of Lord Visnu, born to rid the earth of the terrible demon Ravana. An idealized heroic tale ending with the inevitable triumph of good over evil, the Ramayana is also an intensely personal story of family relationships, love and loss, duty and honor, of harem intrigue, petty jealousies, and destructive ambitions. All this played out in a universe populated by larger-than-life humans, gods and celestial beings, wondrous animals and terrifying demons. With her magnificent translation and superb introduction, Arshia Sattar has successfully bridged both time and space to bring this ancient classic to modern English readers.

Book Summary:

In this sequel to A Glorious Day in Hell, Cælius-a Roman legionnaire-learns about the one true God from Ioannes on their journey to Jerusalem. After his friend is killed on the battlefield, he goes through a conversion of heart. This conversion not only leads to God but to a change in his military status. He leaves the legion to become a sailor in the Roman Navy. Over the next couple of years, Cælius achieves a small amount of peace as he sails the Mediterranean Sea. When his ship Pax makes port calls, he discretely visits local rabbis who teach him more about God. Unfortunately, some of his shipmates take notice of the changes in his demeanor, behaviors, and port call activities; they become suspicious of him. His faith is revealed and tested during a storm off the coast of Cyprus, where he gives his life trying to save his shipmates. Cælius later wakes to find himself floating down the River Styx into hell. What happens to him there? Can he evade the demonic raiders and underwater monsters seeking lost souls? Does he find his friend Ioannes? Will he, too, witness the appearance of Christ, or is he too late?

Book Summary:

Readers of The Gift will find themselves entering into the world of a classic saga of good versus evil. Along the way they will pass through the lands of Elfin Haven Castle, Land of Lakes, Mound-Hill and the Vandalman Land of Nordland. They will meet the family of beautiful Queen Heather, her brave daughter Anree, the fairy Cieli and Heather's brother-in-law Kris von Krinkle. There are heroic quests, supreme destinies and ferocious battles with characters as diverse as Colestream Cardinals, Bull Reindeer warriors and stinking, demonic Slavers. Set in a time when elves and fairies, plants and animals interacted with all manner of human-kind, this story proceeds to offer an inspiring explanation for some of the most beloved stories and beliefs held by that world and our own. A frozen landscape is the setting for great battles between the spirits of Hope and Despair, and the evergreen trees, which retain their beauty even in the coldest of times, hold the promise of an inspiring Christmas story. Bill Craig has used his knowledge of military strategy and weaponry, and his love of the details of everyday life from a bygone era to craft this tale. Within the pages of The Gift hope will be renewed in the lives of its characters and perhaps in the hearts of its readers as well.

It tells the story of everyman Joe Gray, a humble trucker desperate to find evidence for the spiritual world and his own place within it. Lonely in his reluctant agnosticism, yet inspired by a persistent sense of the metaphysical, Joe must endure a harrowing journey beset with mind-bending technological obstacles, heartbreaking setbacks, and near-death experiences, before he has any chance of uncovering the truth. But will it be in time to be reunited with the love of his life? Will this newfound understanding enable him to overcome a dark evil that has grown to threaten the world? Joe’s Trip Around the Sun blurs the line between the physical and spiritual worlds to the point where the reader may question the existence of that demarcation altogether.

Book Summary:

The Land Under: Seeing the Forest Through the Trees is a charming middle-grade adventure story about a boys journey to an underground kingdom of talking animals. Unhappy because of his parents financial difficulties, thirteen-year-old Frank finds himself summoned to the Land Under, a place that parallels our world but is only for animals. Fallen trees linked to forests aboveground are damming up the mighty waterfall, Naveah, which powers the rivers that keep the three kingdoms of the underground civilization separated. If Frank doesnt find a way to unblock the waterfall, the northern forest kingdom will be overrun by savage animals from the jungle and safari kingdoms. Its a race against time, the elements, and the balance of nature for an average boy with an extraordinary mission. Like a fairy tale in its intuitive simplicity, The Land Under grows before your eyes into a completely detailed world that feels so ordinary and real that it almost doesnt seem to be fantasy.

Book Summary:

Dixon Green is no stranger to fear. As the child of a Voodoo priestess in a poor black neighborhood in 1940s New Orleans, he witnesses brutality, desperation, and death. When children start to disappear in the Tremé, word spreads that a terrifying legend is to blame. Buster Voodoo is back... and Dixon's sister is missing. Sixty years later, Dixon is a custodian at a second-rate theme park, watching the clock wind down with a bottle in his hand. Life is devoid of the magic and mystery of Dixon's childhood until it comes to his attention that children are disappearing into the shadows of the run-down dark ride known as “Marie Laveau’s Zombie Nightmare.” As he begins to question his sanity, a deadly force looms on the horizon that is far more powerful than any boogeyman: Hurricane Katrina. In two gripping interlaced narratives that build to a devastating climax, Dixon uncovers the terrible realities behind his sister’s disappearance—and his mother’s dark secrets—as he struggles to endure the savage days following in the storm’s wake.

Book Summary:

In the winter of 1910, the river that brought life to Paris quickly became a force of destruction. Torrential rainfall saturated the soil, and faulty engineering created a perfect storm of conditions that soon drowned Parisian streets, homes, businesses, and museums. The city seemed to have lost its battle with the elements. Given the Parisians' history of deep-seated social, religious, and political strife, it was questionable whether they could collaborate to confront the crisis. Yet while the sewers, Métro, and electricity failed around them, Parisians of all backgrounds rallied to save the city and one another. Improvising techniques to keep Paris functioning and braving the dangers of collapsing infrastructure and looters, leaders and residents alike answered the call to action. This newfound ability to work together proved a crucial rehearsal for an even graver crisis four years later, when France was plunged into World War I. On the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the flood, Jeffrey H. Jackson captures here for the first time the drama and ultimate victory of man over nature.
