God, Physics and Me: A Physicist's Lifelong Search for God God, Physics and Me: A Physicist's Lifelong Search for God should serve as a living example of how science and religion can indeed peacefully coexist. In God, Physics and Me, physicist H. Robert Ralston writes about his quest to reconcile his spiritual beliefs and faith in God with his scientific knowledge of the physical world.Ralston candidly writes of a childhood filled with wonder for and confusion about the spiritual world and, later, his thirst for scientific knowledge. Strangely, perhaps, Ralston's increasing understanding of physics fueled a spiritual quest that pervaded his professional and personal life. God, Physics and Me explores one man's spiritual quest and path to peace through God and science. It's a must-read for anyone who struggles to find peace and understanding in their spiritual and physical worlds....................................................................................Below is an interactive view of "A Pictorial Supplement" meant to show photos that accompany the above title.

"Corinne and Me: An Unlikely Friendship" is a story of an abiding friendship that crossed racial lines, an unbreakable bond that developed against the odds. We came from different worlds-Corinne from the poor, black section of Memphis, me from a wealthy white family in Memphis that forged success from the automobile business. But we came together in a place that knows no boundaries. We met in the heart. I grew up in Memphis in the 1960s, a decade of tremendous turmoil in our country. Corinne came to work for my family in 1959 when I was five years old. We developed a friendship the moment she lifted me off the ground and sat me on the kitchen counter to tell me about the pearly gates of Heaven. From that point on she became my spiritual teacher, my comforter, and my protector. Our unbreakable bond surpassed the turmoil of the times. And though years have passed and she is no longer here, she remains my conscience. "Corinne and Me: An Unlikely Friendship" not only addresses segregation among races, but segregation among mankind as a whole. It addresses the impact addiction has on families, the havoc it wreaks from one generation to the next. It addresses the impact of the loss of loved ones, as well as the mistake we so too often make by not saying "I love you" or "thank you" to those we love. People who have lived such experiences will discover there is hope.

A Life Taken Jeanne Dominico's fiancé found her body on her kitchen floor. More than forty stab wounds and blows to her head with a blunt instrument had cut her life short. What monster had struck in the heart of a peaceful New England town? A Trust Betrayed Jeanne was a hard-working single mother. Nicole, her fourteen-year-old daughter was on the honor-roll and head over heels in love--with an eighteen-year-old man she'd known only through the Internet. Once the lovers met in person, Jeanne's motherly instincts sensed trouble. If only she'd known that the life in danger was her own. In The Name Of Love With a history of psychological trouble and family misfortune, Billy Sullivan's obsessive and controlling power over Nicole contributed to the brutal slaying of her mother. But it was Nicole's stunning confession and guilty plea that led to Billy's sensational trial, where a sordid tale of love, loss, betrayal and murder finally took a cold-blooded killer offline--and on line for justice.

Passing the Baton of Light is the unique and unusual story of one woman who went from wearing the robes of a stripper to those of a respected member of the clergy. This is a book about God’s light and the lure of Hollywood’s spotlight. Beverly Powers’ past reads like fiction, but her credentials speak for themselves. From three Elvis Presley movies, to dozens of Red Skelton Shows, to portraying herself in Breakfast at Tiffany’s with Audrey Hepburn, Beverly’s life is a world of dichotomies. Passing the Baton of Light is a story of a family tree filled with rotten fruit, thorns and weeds: the abuse; betrayals; choices… and the consequences. This book is filled with tell-all accounts of how one woman fought to bring light to herself and the darkened world she was born into. This is a true story of miracles; of love between two teenagers who grow old together; a mother who struggles to save her prodigal son; and a praying grandmother who refused to let Satan have his way with her family; and the Heavenly Father who loved them all. Explore and learn with Beverly as she stumbles into her future not knowing where she is headed. Beverly’s life brings dignity to the meaning of God’s grace.

She and her ex-husband, investigative journalist Sebastian Hess, had too many irreconcilable differences for even their beloved dog, Baxter, to heal. So they've agreed to joint custody, and life has settled into a prickly normalcy. But when Baxter heroically rescues a child and the video footage goes viral, Jess and Sebastian are thrown together again, and her life takes some very unexpected twists. The line of dogwear she creates becomes wildly successful, and suddenly she's in the spotlight with everyone watching—the press, the new guy she's seeing, Sebastian and the past she never imagined she would face again. Soon there's only one person by her side—and it's the person she least expected. She's willing to open up to a new normal…just as long as Baxter approves.

Golden Age Hollywood screenwriter Charles Brackett was an extremely observant and perceptive chronicler of the entertainment industry during its most exciting years. He is best remembered as the writing partner of director Billy Wilder, who once referred to the pair as "the happiest couple in Hollywood," collaborating on such classics as The Lost Weekend (1945) and Sunset Blvd (1950). In this annotated collection of writings taken from dozens of Brackett's unpublished diaries, leading film historian Anthony Slide clarifies Brackett's critical contribution to Wilder's films and Hollywood history while enriching our knowledge of Wilder's achievements in writing, direction, and style. Brackett's diaries re-create the initial meetings of the talent responsible for Ninotchka (1939), Hold Back the Dawn (1941), Ball of Fire (1941), The Major and the Minor (1942), Five Graves to Cairo (1943), The Lost Weekend, and Sunset Blvd, recounting the breakthrough and breakdowns that ultimately forced these collaborators to part ways. Brackett was also a producer, served as president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Screen Writers Guild, was a drama critic for the New Yorker, and became a member of the exclusive literary club, the Algonquin Round Table. Slide provides a rare, front row seat to the Golden Age dealings of Paramount, Universal, MGM, and RKO and the innovations of legendary theater and literary figures, such as Alfred Lunt, Lynn Fontanne, Edna Ferber, and Dorothy Parker. Through Brackett's keen, witty perspective, the political and creative intrigue at the heart of Hollywood's most significant films comes alive, and readers will recognize their reach in the Hollywood industry today.
