Rätselhaft und spannend bis zur letzten Zeile In Eds Briefkasten liegt – eine Spielkarte. Ein Karoass. Darauf stehen drei Adressen. Die Neugier treibt ihn hin zu diesen Orten, doch was er dort sieht, bestürzt ihn zutiefst: drei unerträglich schwere Schicksale, Menschen, die sich nicht selbst aus ihrem Elend befreien können. Etwas in Ed schreit: »Du musst handeln! Tu endlich was!« Dreimal fasst er sich ein Herz, dreimal verändert er Leben. Da flattert ihm die nächste Karte ins Haus. Wieder und wieder ergreift Ed die Initiative – doch wer ihn auf diese eigenartige Mission geschickt hat, ist ihm völlig schleierhaft. • Voll Weisheit, Leidenschaft und Güte • Ein Panorama menschlicher Schicksale, mitreißend und herzergreifend erzählt • Ausgezeichnet mit dem Deutschen Jugendliteraturpreis 2007

The public education system in New York is in turmoil. Is this because of leadership in Albany, the No Child Left Behind Act, parents who fail in their effort to raise children properly, or is it just the fault of kids who show little to no respect for authority, peers, or themselves? Or should we accept the most popular place of blame? The teacher is the problem.The former world, where teachers were revered, looked up to by children and parents, and respected because of the crucial role they played, is all but a forgotten memory. Today, parents and school administrators often demonize teachers and are openly critical of the tenure system, which protects their positions seemingly forever.Riverton School District has lots of issues. There is rampant bullying and peer intimidation. Some kids are even afraid to come to school. The disrespect and outrageous behavior runs not only unchecked, but leadership in Albany wants to see even less discipline and consequences for the young perpetrators.Brendan Moss teaches eighth-grade math at Riverton. As a widower and devoted father of three, he does his best to assist young people, but the school superintendent wants to use the veteran math teacher as a test case to overturn the right to lifetime tenure. Don't Blame the Messenger addresses school policies, State Department of Education leadership, bullying, and why a teacher's tenure should be maintained and viewed as something good for kids and the process of learning.The author works in the trenches, where truth and reality collide. Opinions on what is wrong with public education vary. Don't Blame the Messenger is written by a teacher who knows how it really is.

In stark opposition to the prosperity gospel that seems to permeate every aspect of the media and large-scale outreach programs today, Dr. Warren P. Chavers takes the stand for getting back to the basics of faith and cleaning up The Mess in the Messenger. By turning away from ministries and ministers of the word preaching that prosperity is the way to salvation, The Mess in the Messenger reminds readers of the true love that God provides and the fulfillment that comes through a relationship with him. Applying the word of God in a practical and timely manner, Chavers delivers a message the world needs to hear: Do not buy the hype. Get back on the road of righteousness and humility. Readers will find themselves armed with Scripture and full of the hope of Jesus Christ and the knowledge that they have the power to recognize The Mess in the Messenger and follow the pure path of the everlasting Lord.
