Review of Book The first time I ever read Chad's Christian poetry, I was astounded. It was illuminating and alive. His poetry grabs onto you and sinks deep within, capturing the very essence of the soul. Understanding the simplicity of his poetry, yet the depth of it on a spiritual level, is fascinating. This statement conveys only a shadow of him. The heart of Chad Thieman can only be found in "101 Treasurable Poems of Faith, Hope, and Love." - Curtis Neil Curtis and I first met while working together at the Blockade-Runner Beach Resort, on Wrightsville Beach. He came to me and told me that he had read some of my work. He said that he would help me get published and ever since, we have worked together. Curtis is my investment partner and promotional manager. - Chad The book you are holding in your hands is a treasure chest of poetry, proverbs, and parables that can be used to reach many hearts. Every poem has a Bible verse prescribed to it, for further study and research on the topic discussed within the piece. This book is a great tool which can be used in adult Bible studies, youth groups, church retreats as well as for personal meditation and reflection.

Readers will greatly benefit reading this book's forerunner SO MUCH WATER SO LITTLE WOOD for they play in contrasting milieus of maladministration and usually well administered milieus of the financial and other worlds. The American Association of Universty Professors deserves praise for its penetrating light on that book's milieu benefitting employees and other educational institutions for future years. Professions have their unique vocabulary and idioms of wisdom as does the investment business. Its truth will be summarized. Business flourished for me. Ruth and I could vacation and travel - a more pleasant life. Sorrow struck. Ruth had developed small brain aneurysms and died within four days. Two and a half years later I married Janice Seybolt Morton, a widow with two young daughters. Life went on. And Princeton Seminary? Purposely locked in a forget corner. Then my phone rang. The same student who wanted a copy of my prayer decades ago, now Seminary Archivist, looked for my file, but it was forever assigned to trash. "I still have your prayer," he said. He came for three days, asking questions and recording my answers. He unlocked the corner. I had portraits of five deceased, outstanding former colleagues at Princeton painted for the Seminary, and eventually established endowments for scholarships and distribution of Bibles in South Africa, together with liberal contributions for a new library. Graciously the Seminary dedicated a lecture room in the new library for me on October 22, 2013. This book fulfills my dream of tribute to several of my friends at Pretoria University dedicating their lives to the Kingdom of God. They are all long gone now, one fifty years ago in 2013, but to all applies the inscription on Johannes Petrus Potgieter's grave stone at his mission station Rivoni: "THOU THEY WERE DEAD, YET SHALL THEY LIVE."

Islam is Americas fastest growing religion, with more than six million Muslims in the United States, all living in the shadow of 9/11. Who are our Muslim neighbors? What are their beliefs and desires? How are they coping with life under the War on Terror? In Mecca and Main Street, noted author and journalist Geneive Abdo offers illuminating answers to these questions. Gaining unprecedented access to Muslim communities in America, she traveled across the country, visiting schools, mosques, Islamic centers, radio stations, and homes. She reveals a community tired of being judged by American perceptions of Muslims overseas and eager to tell their own stories. Abdo brings these stories vividly to life, allowing us to hear their own voices and inviting us to understand their hopes and their fears. Inspiring, insightful, tough-minded, and even-handed, this book will appeal to those curious (or fearful) about the Muslim presence in America. It will also be warmly welcomed by the Muslim community.

Clara’s origins were far from grand. Her father was a trawlerman and she would have been born at sea had he not made an emergency landing near Brighton. The Butts, who went on to have ten more children, soon moved to Bristol, a city that remained close to Clara’s heart until the end of her days. Recognising her burgeoning talent, the local community clubbed together to support Clara’s training after she was offered a prestigious scholarship at the Royal College of Music. To show her gratitude, Clara later chose to be married at Bristol Cathedral, even though she had been offered St. Paul’s in London. Such was her fame by this stage, Sir Arthur Sullivan composed an anthem for the occasion, special trains were run from London, and a halfday holiday was given to workers. Filling concert halls throughout the world, Clara was one of the first singers to undertake international tours, visiting Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Japan. She travelled with an entourage of over twenty people who fulfilled her every need. Her demands were many, but Clara never failed to delight her adoring audiences. At the height of her career, Clara was locked in rivalry with the celebrated soprano Nellie Melba, almost ending in a libel case when Clara wrote her memoirs. Although Clara’s incredible talent brought her much joy, she also suffered great tragedy in her personal life, losing two of her children and enduring crippling back pain. She sought solace in Theosophy, travelling to India, where she met Mahatma Gandhi and the socialist reformer Annie Besant. A professional to the very end, Clara collapsed on her final tour of Australia and had to be brought home on a stretcher. Diagnosed with a virulent form of spinal cancer, Clara died with courage, the same week as both George V and Rudyard Kipling. A brilliant singer and an extraordinary woman, Dame Clara Butt was the epitome of a bygone age. In the first biography since her death, Maurice Leonard tells Dame Clara Butt’s remarkable story, from humble beginnings in Sussex, to her dazzling apotheosis by an adoring nation. With humour and insight, Leonard reveals the woman behind the cultural icon.

Heaven talks to each one of us and gives us hope. In Hope Heals, author Jodi Netting discovers this through one of the most tumultuous periods of her life, which is told through her letters to her beloved husband. As a thirty-five-year-old mother of three, Jodi Netting faces the fight of her life. Her husband and soul mate, Kevin, has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and his prognosis is not good. While Netting watches her husband battle this devastating illness, defying death daily, her hope flounders, but her faith never waivers. Ultimately she realizes that every experience provides us with an option to open our lives up to God. Faced with the possibility of losing the love of her life, Jodi turns to writing and to her faith. Through her prayers and her journal, Jodi recognizes the words of God and the angels in her life.
