Getting Here From There from the Author: Margaret R. Miles. This book of conversations between Margaret R. Miles and Hiroko Sakomura compares the experiences of two women who grew up in different societies, with different educations, different professions, and different religious orientations. Reflecting on the different ways in which Japanese and American societies inhibited and enabled them, these two women share their struggles, difficulties, and achievements. All of this is set in the context of one of the most radical social movements in the history of the world, as women are gaining increments of equality with men in designing and administering the institutions of public life with opportunities, dangers, and rewards. This is a moment in which a critical mass of women "want it all now," in the best sense of the phrase, seeking to preserve and reinterpret traditional values while exercising their capabilities and skills both in the home and in public life. This book is the memoir of two women's painful and joyful experiences in "getting here from there."

2 Wives 2 Laws from the Author: James C. ''Jim'' Robinson. Richard Connell is happily married to his wife Kara in 1880 Utah Territory. Then his Mormon ecclesiastical leader calls him to take a second wife, completely scrambling his world. The shock is multiplied by the choice of who is to become that second wife in acceptance of "God's law." Further complicating his life is the assignment of U.S. Deputy Marshal William Baker Alden to enforce federal anti-polygamy laws by arresting and helping prosecute offenders. Alden's task is difficult as Mormons have created all sorts of defenses and diversions. Among Richard's challenges: choose which law to obey, successfully court a second wife, keep household peace, hide one wife, avoid an apparently inevitable confrontation with federal law officials. An interesting, personal, historically accurate inside look at Mormon polygamy.

Christianity And Extraterrestrials from the Author: Marie George. Does ETI existence spell the death of Christianity? The increasingly popular answer is "yes". Marie George argues, to the contrary, that Christian belief is compatible with ETI existence, by examining Roman Catholic teaching and Scripture. She then makes a case that while Christian belief does not exclude ETI existence, it does render it improbable. George goes on to expose the faulty reasoning behind the common opinion that science indicates that the universe surely contains other intelligent life forms. She closes with speculations on what the Catholic Church might eventually say about ETIs. Central to her analysis is the cosmic role of Christ."I appreciate arguments like those in Christianity and Extraterrestrials?, laid out carefully and investigated thoroughly. If more writers proceeded with Dr. George's care and courtesy, there would be new hope for peace in the world."John L. Barger, Ph.D. Publisher, Sophia Institute Press"Although some of Dr. George's claims are controversial, she is clearly an author seeking the truth and open to opposing arguments. Moreover, she has sought out the best sources and used them wisely-in short, an admirable scholarly presentation."Michael J. Crowe Cavanaugh Professor Emeritus, University of Notre Dame and author of The Extraterrestrial Life Debate, 1750-1900

Can T Get There From Here from the Author: Todd Strasser. Her street name is Maybe She lives with a tribe of homeless teens -- runaways and throwaways, kids who have no place to go other than the cold city streets, and no family except for one another. Abused, abandoned, and forgotten, they struggle against the cold, hunger, and constant danger. With the frigid winds of January comes a new girl: Tears, a twelve-year-old whose mother doesn't believe her stepfather abuses her. As the other kids start to disappear -- victims of violence, addiction, and exposure -- Maybe tries to help Tears get off the streets...if it's not already too late. Todd Strasser, author of the powerful and disturbing Give a Boy a Gun, again focuses on an important social issue as he tells a thought-provoking, heart-wrenching story of young lives lost to the streets, and of a society that has forgotten how to care.
