One day in the life of Christ. Call it a tapestry of turmoil: A noisy pictorial in which the golden threads of triumph knot against the black, frazzled strings of tragedy. Call it a symphony of emotions: A sunrise-to-sunset orchestration of extremes. One score is brassy with exuberance -- the next moans with sorrow. Whatever you call it -- call it real. Author Max Lucado calls it "the second most stressful day in the life of our Savior." Before the morning becomes evening Jesus has reason to weep, then run, then shout, the curse, then praise, then doubt. Within a matter of moments his world is turned upside down. Sound familiar? The pink slip comes. The doctor calls. The divorce papers arrive. The check bounces. The life that had been calm is now chaotic. The world that had been serene is now stormy. Assailed by doubts. Pummeled by demands. If you've ever wondered if God in heaven can relate to you on earth, then read and re-read this pressure-packed day in the life of Christ. It is the only day, aside from the crucifixion, that all four gospels recorded. Lucado has interwoven their accounts in such a way that you will be assured that God knows how you feel. And you will be assured that within every torrent there is a calm center -- a place you can stand when your world gets windy. The Eye of the Storm.

"Barcelona, the cultural epicenter of Catalunya, is presently experiencing the most dynamic and polemical period in its modern theater history. It is the commanding hub of an energetic theater scene that in recent years has witnessed an exuberant outpouring of new dramatists, a steady crescendo in theater attendance, and a continual increase in the international presence of Catalan directors, playwrights, and companies. Barcelona's post-Olympian cultural landscape, moreover, comprises several architecturally striking theater projects. The diversity of opportunities to stage plays in Catalan at an assortment of city spaces is unprecedented, ranging in variety from commercial locales to publicly funded stages to experimental "alternative" venues. Since its origins in the nineteenth century, modem Catalan drama has frequently exhibited a cosmopolitan and even transnational impulse, engaging in an artistic dialogue with international theater traditions of both past and present and forging its identity vis-a-vis its intercultural associations. The path along which the contemporary Catalan theater scene has struggled to recover and reconstitute the professional legitimacy and visibility that it lost during the Franco dictatorship has been a complex process, never lacking in melodramatic excess, witnessed both on and off the stage. The Barcelona stage, throughout its contemporary evolution, has been immersed in a stormy climate, whose relentlessly frenetic atmospheric activity at times may impede one from acquiring the distance necessary to see beyond the hurricane." --Book Jacket.

Sir John Houghton's life chronicles the history of climate science. Discovering in the course of his study of the weather that climate change is a reality and does threaten the future of the planet, Houghton found out something else. Not all scientists were prepared to tell the truth. When truth is inconvenient, even threatening to certain interests, then those interests will go to great lengths to challenge it. He says 'The warning is now urgent. The science is now robust, time is moving on, and humankind is responding far too slowly. God has granted us stewardship of this planet . It is a creation full of wonder and we must do everything in our power to keep it so.' 'The warning has always been there, but opposing forces have prevented us from hearing it.' Sir John Houghton is still battling. This book is part of that battle.

MPs' expenses in 2009. Phone hacking in 2011. 'Plebgate' in 2012. If a good speech or a ground-breaking new policy fails to get people talking, you can be sure a juicy scandal will do the trick. Our instantaneous news culture of social networks, blogs and Twitter feeds means politicians now, more than ever, can find themselves the focus of every journalist in the country in what seems like the blink of an eye. But behind this hostile media landscape, behind the storm of camera flashes and the clamour of opponents on all sides baying for blood, are the politicians themselves. With the benefit of personal interviews and access to senior officials including Vince Cable, Andrew Mitchell and Jeremy Hunt, Rob Wilson MP details what it's really like to be at the heart of a relentless media onslaught. Describing both the emotional upheaval and the strategies employed as politicians try to navigate through careers seemingly hanging by a thread, Wilson reveals the extraordinary political and personal stories behind the public drama; the real impact on those who live in the eye of the storm.

This is a tale of the sea, of two men and their wives on a sailboat, moving toward the heart of a great storm. It is an adventure story that carries four travelers on the yawl Harmony from Edgartown to Menemsha to Block Island and thence out into a huge, dark cone of uncertainty. In the modulating airs of the voyage four personalities emerge to work changes on each other. The two marriages seem to react to the barometer. As the drama of the storm gathers and breaks, themes are sounded of escape and confrontatoin, of illusion, of the "secret place" that every boat and every person harbors, of a meticulousness, a prudent attention to the details of life, which can blind a man to the whole of reality, and also of endurance, of instinctively courageous seamanship, and of strength that the strong may not know they possess even as they exert it. The skipper, a young doctor, follows his obsession to the terrible goal to which it must lead him at the moment wehn the calm eye of the storm looks down on the tiny boat in the violent sea. The four visions of the characters, which seem to have been focused on the one experience, reveal themselves as sharply at variance with each other, so that a final "truth" of the story has to be bargained out. And in the end that truth turns out to be an irony.

Chosen chairman of Bank of America in 2009, Walter Massey is the first banking insider to reveal the inner workings behind the country's worst financial crisis in 2008. Although a global financial meltdown occurred a dozen years later, it was triggered by Covid-19--a global pandemic. But the earlier catastrophe had been precipitated by a downturn in the U.S. housing market followed by large bank losses, excessive risk taking, and the concomitant greed and fraud that were cronies of that stressful macroeconomic environment. Still, Walter E. Massey's intimate memoir is more than a revelation about those perilous years of the American economy. A successful professional whose achievements embody a startling range of aptitudes, he gives the reader a remarkably personal record of how a black boy from Hattiesburg, Mississippi who entered Morehouse College at age 16 on a special Ford Foundation program, was able to reach those heights. Through flashbacks, Massey describes how his earlier leadership positions prepared him for the unexpected challenges he faced at the bank. They had all been learning experiences--from director of the Argonne National Laboratory, director of the National Science Foundation, president of Morehouse College, and currently president and chancellor of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Comprehensive, intimate, and revealing, his is an eloquent testimony to how one succeeds by accepting challenges, forging alliances, and maintaining personal integrity. At the end of it all, he hopes that readers will find his story encouraging enough to push ahead toward their goals and not be daunted by the seeming enormity of the task.

Walter E. Massey, former chairman of Bank of America, announced that Beckham Publications will release his memoir, "In the Eye of the Storm: My Time as Chairman of Bank of America During the Country's Worst Financial Crisis," in October, 2020."Massey's memoir will offer an insider's gaze at events and people that never before have been revealed publicly," says publisher Barry Beckham. "He has promised not to hold back on how surprised and flabbergasted he felt after learning that the board had chosen him." Although this memoir will focus on Massey's time with Bank of America, it will incorporate relevant details of his other professional activities, Beckham says. "Walter's breadth of accomplishments includes president emeritus of Morehouse College and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and leadership roles at the National Science Foundation and Argonne National Laboratory.""In addition," says Beckham, "he talks about his personal difficulties like a psychologically devastating divorce, a mother debilitated by alcoholism, and his life being threatened during a racial disturbance in St. Louis."
