SAHL, A POLITICAL SATIRIST, ASSESSES THE MORAL DECLINE OF AMERICA AND RELATES HIS INVOLVEMENT IN THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY, WHICH HE BELIEVES DESTROYED HIS CAREER.
The true story of a small-town doctor destined to live his life along two paths: one as a successful physician, the other as a psychic with ever more interesting adventures. Experiencing a wide range of spiritual phenomena, Dr. Riblet Hout learned about the connection between the healer and the healed, our individual missions on earth, free will, and our relationship with God. He also paints a vivid picture of life on the "other side" as well as the moment of transition from physical life to "afterlife."
Whatever your circumstances are, wherever you find yourself in this life, don't ever think that your Father in heaven has shortchanged you. You have been created in His image and He has thoughtfully and purposely deposited in your heart the talents for true greatness in this life and the life to come. Decide today, that this day, you will do something out of pure kindness for someone else without seeking any reward. Seeds of Greatness will open the door of our heart to the gifts and abilities that God planted when He formed you in your mothers' wombs. It will further define what greatness truly is-and it isn't spiking a football in the end zone and then signing the goal post with a marker. Author Peter Zindler offers heartwarming examples of the greatness of God in an ordinary man's life, a man who has dared to go against the world's opinion and will follow God wherever He leads him. As you read Seeds of Greatness, you'll step into a corridor of truth that promises to take you to a new level!
Urban poverty, along with all of its poignant manifestations, is moving from city centers to working-class and industrial suburbs in contemporary America. Nowhere is this more evident than in East St. Louis, Illinois. Once a thriving manufacturing and transportation center, East St. Louis is now known for its unemployment, crime, and collapsing infrastructure. Abandoned in the Heartland takes us into the lives of East St. Louis’s predominantly African American residents to find out what has happened since industry abandoned the city, and jobs, quality schools, and city services disappeared, leaving people isolated and imperiled. Jennifer Hamer introduces men who search for meaning and opportunity in dead-end jobs, women who often take on caretaking responsibilities until well into old age, and parents who have the impossible task of protecting their children in this dangerous, and literally toxic, environment. Illustrated with historical and contemporary photographs showing how the city has changed over time, this book, full of stories of courage and fortitude, offers a powerful vision of the transformed circumstances of life in one American suburb.
During the 1880s and '90s, the rise of manufacturing, the first soaring skyscrapers, new symphony orchestras and art museums, and winning baseball teams all heralded the midwestern city's coming of age. In this book, Jon C. Teaford chronicles the development of these cities of the industrial Midwest as they challenged the urban supremacy of the East. The antebellum growth of Cincinnati to Queen City status was followed by its eclipse, as St. Louis and then Chicago developed into industrial and cultural centers. During the second quarter of the twentieth century, emerging Sunbelt cities began to rob the heartland of its distinction as a boom area. In the last half of the century, however, midwestern cities have suffered some of their most trying times. With the 1970s and '80s came signs of age and obsolescence; the heartland had become the "rust belt."" "Teaford examines the complex "heartland consciousness" of the industrial Midwest through boom and bust. Geographically, economically, and culturally, the midwestern city is "a legitimate subspecies of urban life.--[book jacket].
