When eco-enthusiast Twilly Spree spots someone in a Range Rover dumping litter onto the freeway, he decides to teach him a lesson - only to discover that his target is Palmer Stoat, one of Florida's cockiest and most powerful political fixers. The short-tempered Twilly finds himself embroiled in a murky world of singing toads and bogus big-game hunters, and in the company of an infamous ex-governor who's gone back to nature with a vengeance. 1.

Penned by one young preacher to others, all preachers will appreciate the wisdom of Reflections for the Call. Written as a devotional, the book uses practical truths and relevant Scriptures to help reconfirm the assignments of those in ministry. When read with fidelity, it will reignite the passion of not just young preachers but anyone with a public ministry call on their life. Listeners will find 30 timeless admonitions that every minister, especially young ministers, should embrace. Each devotion begins with a scriptural lesson and an easy-to-understand reflection on an important lesson for ministry. Each of the reflections includes sound exegesis of the scriptural reference and is completed with a prayer that the listener can use at that very moment. According to Dr. Marsha Brown Woodard of Palmer Theological Seminary, "These devotions...will speak to young preachers, and still be of benefit to more seasoned preachers as they seek to be faithful to God's call on their lives." There are plenty of preaching books, but few are designed with the young minister in mind. Kyle Boyer has written a work that combines theology and practicality to offer a great guidebook for anyone seeking to be faithful to their God-given assignments. 1. Language: English.

Church from the Eyes of a Saint captures the real-life spiritual growth of a young African American woman living in the South within a four-year span, from the age of 25 to 30. Each chapter recaps the author's transition from a lifestyle of spiritual bondage into the spiritual awakening of her spiritual giftings and her true identity to include the prophetic realm. She gives accounts of different experiences she has had within different church ministries and a few recaps of childhood experiences that helped her grow and identify with her newfound identity in Christ as a saint (one set apart). Each chapter has its own lesson that was learned through the author's various accounts mentioned, but through each lesson the author encourages her listeners to seek God further in their own spiritual walks, encourages them to find and embrace their spiritual giftings, encourages them to learn God for themselves, and inspires them to have faith in Christ in their spiritual walks after salvation. The book's target audience is more mature listeners ranging from early 20s to late 30s. The author takes the listener on her journey as she transitions from one church denomination to another (COGIC to nondenominational) and as she transitions spiritually from the traditional roots of church to nontraditional roots while being spiritually guided by the Holy Spirit. However, the author begins with her experience in a denominational church where her spiritual journey and transition began to take place. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sharell Palmer Schwarzer.

When Palmer Stoat notices the black pickup truck following him on the highway, he fears his precious Range Rover is about to be carjacked. But Twilly Spree, the man tailing Stoat, has vengeance, not sport-utility vehicles, on his mind. Idealistic, independently wealthy and pathologically short-tempered, Twilly has dedicated himself to saving Florida's wilderness from runaway destruction. He favors unambiguous political statements - such as torching Jet-Skis or blowing up banks - that leave his human targets shaken but re-educated. After watching Stoat blithely dump a trail of fast-food litter out the window, Twilly decides to teach him a lesson. Thus, Stoat's prized Range Rover becomes home to a horde of hungry dung beetles. Which could have been the end to it had Twilly not discovered that Stoat is one of Florida's cockiest and most powerful political fixers, whose latest project is the "malling" of a pristine Gulf Coast island. Now the real Hiaasen-variety fun begins.... Dognapping eco-terrorists, bogus big-time hunters, a Republicans-only hooker, an infamous ex-governor who's gone back to nature, thousands of singing toads and a Labrador retriever greater than the sum of his Labrador parts - these are only some of the denizens of Carl Hiaasen's outrageously funny new novel. Brilliantly twisted entertainment wrapped around a powerful ecological plea, Sick Puppy gleefully lives up to its title and gives us Hiaasen at his riotous and muckraking best. 1. Language: English.

Some essays are personal accounts of teaching experiences and reflect on the meaning of Douglass to students being educated in America. Others offer lesson plans for teaching Douglass with samples of student poems and narratives inspired by the readings. Contributors include Lorenzo Thomas, Margot Fortunato Galt, Ron Padgett, and Marvin Hoffman.. Christina Davis, Chris Edgar and Ron Padgett collaborate on a comprehensive outline for teaching writing through Douglass' Narrative, entitled Thirty-Two Writing Ideas Using Douglass' Narrative. The exercises are appropriate for all levels of education, and there are between one and nine ideas for each chapter, with the emphasis being on chapters two, seven, and ten.. There are many detailed lesson plans and astute observations that make Opal Palmer Adisa's essay a lovely read. Her work with upper elementary - high school students focuses on using the narrative to incite students to write about their own lives, but the emphasis for Adisa is not only on Douglass. She weaves in texts from the Harlem Renaissance and Sojourner Truth to cultivate a more complete sense of the Black struggle to which Douglass speaks. . Margot Fortunate Galt designs her essay for upper elementary through high school students learning the ballad. From the beginning of her essay, Galt concisely establishes time frames for her lessons, with steps, goals and ideas for incorporating music and performance. The attention she pays to meter, rhyme, and syntax shows in the care her students put into their own poems. . Lorenzo Thomas' account of his students' touching reception of Douglass is a joyful reminder of why we teach and value the written word. While there are no 'lesson plans' in this entry, Thomas is sure to inspire many teachers with his reflections and analysis of Douglass' work. . Charles Kuner approaches teaching to write historical letters and map stories in the bilingual classroom with thoughtfulness and respect for his students. His own stories about how meaningful Douglass' words and experiences were to them are enforced by samples of their writing. This essay is about his high school students, but it could be interpreted for any level.. A delightful account of teaching Douglass to a group of inner city eleventh graders, Marvin Hoffman shares how he gathers the efforts of his students to savor the text through reading aloud and composing a letter to Douglass' mother. Student samples included.
