Book Description Life After Life is the haunting and gloriously redemptive tale of Evans D. Hopkins's many lives, a sweeping journey from promising middle-class youth to civil rights militant, from criminal and convict to celebrated writer and enlightened man. Evans D. Hopkins was born during the Jim Crow era in a second-rate, segregated hospital, and educated in segregated primary schools in Danville, Virginia, a town that proudly proclaimed itself the "Last Capital of the Confederacy." With parents who stressed the value of education, as a teenager he was in the forefront of desegregation and the Civil Rights Movement. At the same time, he fell in love with the traditionally white man's game of tennis, modeling himself after his idol, the legendary Arthur Ashe, only to be swept off the courts by the Black Panther Party at the age of sixteen. Just out of high school, Hopkins moved to Panther headquarters in Oakland, California, where he spent two years writing...

Anne Rice

Called Out of Darkness

Anne Rice's intimate memoir of her Catholic girlhood, her unmaking as a devout believer, and the path back to her faith. Internationally bestselling author Anne Rice has written twenty-eight novels - magnificent tales of other-worldly beings that explore the realms of good and evil, love and alienation: each a reflection of her own moral journey. Now, in her powerful memoir, she writes about her own life as a Catholic. Beginning with her New Orleans childhood, in a vividly experienced world of storytelling and ritual, Rice's faith was formed. As a teenager, struggling to reconcile her faith with her hunger for knowledge and understanding of the modern world, she turned her back on the religion of her childhood and lost her belief in God. Years later, after the tragic passing of her daughter, she wrote "Interview with the Vampire", a lament for her lost faith. Rice describes a turning point in 1998, when, after nearly four decades as an atheist, she returned to...

Paul Quarrington

The Boy on the Back of the Turtle: Seeking God, Quince Marmalade, and the Fabled Albatross on Darwin's Islands

Book DescriptionIn The Boy on the Back of the Turtle, Quarrington attempts to discover his own little niche in the cosmos. Cruising the volcanic Galapagos Islands on a 90-foot liner in the company of his daughter, age 7, and his father, age 73, he tries to find his place as a Son, as a Father, as a Mortal frolicking beneath the heavens. Given that the Galapagos is the historic site of God?s greatest setback, he points out, it is a fitting place to play out the battle within him. Quarrington employs his trademark combination of wry wit and poignant observation as he takes readers on a wide-ranging investigation of everything from blue-footed boobies, careerism, taxonomy, and the nature of creation to pirates, frigate birds, Herman Melville, and the precarious ecology of the islands and the planet. The exploration of questions big and small make this an enlightening voyage for the reader as well.

Martha Mason

Breath: Life in the Rhythm of an Iron Lung, A Memoir

Book Description"I live with a stable of nightmares," Martha Mason writes, "but hope keeps them in harness." Some might wonder how Martha could have clung to hope at all. In 1948, on the day of the funeral of her adored older brother Gaston, a quick victim of the great polio epidemic, Martha was struck with the same dreaded disease. After a year in polio hospitals, she was sent back to her home in the village of Lattimore in the cotton-growing hills of western North Carolina. She was completely paralyzed, with only her head protruding from an 800-pound yellow metal cylinder that breathed for her. Doctors told her parents that she likely wouldn't live for more than a year. But the doctors hadn't counted on Martha's will, or the hope that drives her still. An avid reader, she dreamed of being a writer, and after finishing high school in her iron lung, she went on to nearby Gardner-Webb College, then to Wake Forest University, where she was graduated first in her class and...

Ralph & Jeanette Reaves

An African Adventure : Memories of a Missionary Couple

Book DescriptionAn African Adventure is a story of fear, joy, danger and love, but mostly love, love for a continent, a people and the God whom they try to serve. It is also a story of courage, the courage of young people mostly, young people who are struggling with the loss of their families to AIDS and civil war, young people who face a brighter future but still have to deal with a devastating past. It is a journey, a journey not only of miles but of the soul. It is a journey that will lead Ralph and Jeanette Reaves to the beautiful mountains of Rwanda and carry them through the sometimes heartbreaking task of caring for over 115 orphans in Uganda. It is a journey that will bring them to their knees in despair and teach them that to survive, they have to lean totally on God.
