E-book Explanation:

A deeply personal and candid remembrance of the late Senator John McCain from one of his closest and most trusted confidants, friends, and political advisors. More so than almost anyone outside of McCain’s immediate family, Mark Salter had unparalleled access to and served to influence the Senator’s thoughts and actions, cowriting seven books with him and acting as a valued confidant. Now, in The Luckiest Man, Salter draws on the storied facets of McCain’s early biography as well as the later-in-life political philosophy for which the nation knew and loved him, delivering an intimate and comprehensive account of McCain’s life and philosophy. Salter covers all the major events of McCain’s life—his peripatetic childhood, his naval service—but introduces, too, aspects of the man that the public rarely saw and hardly knew. Woven throughout this narrative is also the story of Salter and McCain’s close relationship, including how they met, and why their friendship stood the test of time in a political world known for its fickle personalities and frail bonds. Through Salter’s revealing portrayal of one of our country’s finest public servants, McCain emerges as both the man we knew him to be and also someone entirely new. Glimpses of his restlessness, his curiosity, his courage, and sentimentality are rendered with sensitivity and care—as only Mark Salter could provide. The capstone to Salter’s intimate and decades-spanning time with the Senator, The Luckiest Man is the authoritative last word on the stories McCain was too modest to tell himself and an influential life not soon to be forgotten.

A newly published drama, The Mystery of the Resurrection' satisfies a hunger for re-examining and reflecting on the most important Scriptural event in the Bible and the meaning behind the Easter celebrations- the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Believers know that Jesus' death and burial was not the end of his story. . Scripture says that after three days he rose from the dead. The Author, Claudette Francis, has translated this amazing and momentous event into a compelling courtroom drama.

The play is written in a form that appeals to all ages and resonates with people from all walks of life. It serves to stretch, strengthen and deepen the believer's faith in Jesus, the Son of God, who was sacrificed for the salvation of the world. The more than eighty Scriptural quotes and references used in the drama offer a springboard to reach deeper into an understanding of the mystery of God's redeeming love.

E-book Explanation:

How do you experience God's intimate, comforting, tangible presence? In The Luckiest Man, John Paine reveals how he found the answer to this most important of all questions--by facing a terminal diagnosis. At middle age, John Paine thought he knew what it meant to have a relationship with God. He was a successful businessman, a well-respected Christian leader, a Bible teacher, and--outwardly, at least--the spiritual leader of his family. He was satisfied and thought he understood what it meant to know and experience God. But did he? John's journey into true, mystical intimacy with God began when a neurologist diagnosed him with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, and said, "Go home and get your affairs in order." Seventeen years later, John tells his story, recounting the ways God intervened in his life, freeing him from all that prevented intimacy with God, even as John slipped into pain, paralysis, and further toward death. In stunning, insightful prose, The Luckiest Man points to the God who lovingly, though occasionally painfully, drew John into the richness of friendship. In this profoundly moving memoir, John Paine reveals the secret to intimacy with God and provides hope to all who are in the middle of their own trials. They, too, will understand why John considers himself the "luckiest man."

E-book Explanation:

The first 38 years of my life was a never ending battle with depression and a struggle for my sanity. I was born in the 40's, grew up in the 50's and reached manhood in the 60's. Doctors in those eras were just beginning to come to terms with the causes and effects of clinical depression and its debilitating effect. At that time, medication to treat depression was primarily experimental in nature and not available to most people. Until I was hospitalized in 1969, at the age of 26, not a single person was aware of the demons I had been fighting all my life. Even my family and friends were unaware the periods of hopelessness and despair that I had endured. From all appearances, I had led a "normal" life and, in some ways, appeared to be a high achiever. In high school, college, the military and in my later work experience, I managed to "muddle through" and to some extent excel. I had an instinct for survival which compelled me to endure life regardless of how painful it might be. Most people probably do not understand how I could have survived and had the semblance of a normal life had I suffered constantly from depression. If the depression had been constant, I probably would have been an early casualty of the disease. In my experience, the depression "waxed and waned." I sometimes went months suffering only modest depression. There were even periods when the malady was dormant and I experienced the happiness that other people feel. However, I was constantly waiting for "the other shoe to fall." When it fell, it often did so with a vengeance. Author Biography Robert L. Hamlett was born on June 13, 1943 in the "Buckle of the Bible belt." After attending local schools, he enrolled at the University of Tennessee, where he graduated, with honors, in December 1965. Between 1966 and 1969, he served as an officer in the U.S. Navy. His service included tours aboard the USS Frontier (AD-25) and at the U.S. Naval Support Activity, Danang, South Vietnam.

E-book Explanation:

The definitive account of the life and tragic death of baseball legend Lou Gehrig. Lou Gehrig was a baseball legend—the Iron Horse, the stoic New York Yankee who was the greatest first baseman in history, a man whose consecutive-games streak was ended by a horrible disease that now bears his name. But as this definitive new biography makes clear, Gehrig’s life was more complicated—and, perhaps, even more heroic—than anyone really knew. Drawing on new interviews and more than two hundred pages of previously unpublished letters to and from Gehrig, Luckiest Man gives us an intimate portrait of the man who became an American hero: his life as a shy and awkward youth growing up in New York City, his unlikely friendship with Babe Ruth (a friendship that allegedly ended over rumors that Ruth had had an affair with Gehrig’s wife), and his stellar career with the Yankees, where his consecutive-games streak stood for more than half a century. What was not previously known, however, is that symptoms of Gehrig’s affliction began appearing in 1938, earlier than is commonly acknowledged. Later, aware that he was dying, Gehrig exhibited a perseverance that was truly inspiring; he lived the last two years of his short life with the same grace and dignity with which he gave his now-famous “luckiest man” speech. Meticulously researched and elegantly written, Jonathan Eig’s Luckiest Man shows us one of the greatest baseball players of all time as we’ve never seen him before.
