    "Justice is something every generation has to strive for." A trailblazer in the civil rights movement, John M. Perkins led voter registration efforts in 1964, worked for school desegregation in 1967, and was jailed and tortured in 1970. He is no less zealous today as he sees a new generation of freedom fighters battling the same issues and the same systems he has spent his life working to correct. Through his raw, personal stories spanning from the civil rights era to today, Perkins shows us that, though the fight is not over, there are many reasons to hope and to carry on the good work he and his contemporaries began more than a generation ago. He calls us to work for justice by living out God’s redemptive love in all of our relationships. “It all comes down to love,” he says. “Love will always be our final fight."

    “The cacophony of voices about our bodies is so loud, it’s hard to hear the voices that matter. Some of us decide to forget it all and give in to one addiction or another. I’ve done that. Some of us decide to perfect our bodies and obsess over every muscle or wrinkle. I’ve done that too. Then I discovered the truth about my body: It is a gift. A sign of God’s love. And so is yours.” Many of us think our physical natures are burdens that drag us toward failure and guilt. But what if God actually glories in the flesh? What if we had the same joy about our bodies as He does? Ragan Sutterfield brings us back to a biblical perspective — a freeing, corrective viewpoint that reminds us of the connection between spirit, mind, and body. Along the way, he shares his journey from overweight addict to Ironman competitor. He counts his success, though, not in his decreased clothing size, but in his increased understanding of how much God truly loves us and of what it means to be stewards — not just of our souls, but of our skin and bones too.

    Fans of Chuck Norris may see him as an action hero in the John Wayne mold, but his autobiography presents a different image of the 'Walker, Texas Ranger' star. Norris describes himself as a shy youth who finally blossomed while studying martial arts as a soldier in South Korea. His self-deprecating humor shows through anecdotes about karate defeats, white-knuckled speaking engagements, and his failure to become a Los Angeles policeman, which led to his fame as a karate champion. His life philosophies reveal relentless optimism, usually tempered with pragmatism. Norris's son, Michael, reads with an appropriately upbeat tone, actually sounding a little awkward in places, echoing his father's early shyness
