God’s Other Children by Bradley Malkovsky is a charming spiritual travelogue that tells the tale of a Catholic religious scholar who goes to India to study Hinduism and winds up falling in love with and marrying a Muslim. In the tradition of The Faith Club, Malkvosky, who holds a degree in Catholic theology, shares how his spiritual journey grew his faith, while raising questions about it that he had never considered, and how it changed his life in ways he could neverhave imagined. Inspiring and profound, God’s Other Children: Personal Encounters with Faith, Love, and Holiness in Sacred India offers a fascinating perspective on how people of all faiths encounter God. Author Bradley Malkovsky won the Huston Smith Publishing Prize for this manuscript from HarperOne.

This book will take you on a spiritual journey into the life of the author’s experiences of being gay and Christian in America. It will focus on the taboos associated with homosexuality and the Bible based on the author’s own personal opinions, and offer ways of overcoming society’s negative views on the subject. This story focuses on the author’s life growing up in a conservative Baptist church in a small, rural town where homosexuality was considered to be the greatest of all abominations before God. The writer delves deep inside her soul to share the ups and downs of struggling for nearly 30 years, trying to cope with being a lesbian. Ultimately culminating with the author discovering Jesus Christ, and with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, gaining a sort of self-acceptance and peace of mind that allowed her to become comfortable with being a gay Christian. The goal of this work is to hopefully help other lesbians and gays find God’s purpose for their lives, and to help non-gays understand the trials and tribulations of the gay community, to gain acceptance, and quell all misconceptions of God’s other children.

(**Updated in 2015 - chapter 'Circumcision of Religion', plus recent HIV statistics and new cover art**) Shortlisted for the coveted Polari First Book Prize, this atypical non-fiction emotional roller coaster by Vernal Scott, a gay activist Londoner and former head of HIV services, is earning high praise from enthusiastic readers. His writing is soulful, raw, and unashamedly human. Forcefully revealing gay people as holistic, multi-racial and sexual, he also recalls the horror caused by AIDS and undeserved shaming by 'ruinous religion'. But there is much much more. Following a wide-ranging prologue, this dramatic true story starts out in happy but poor 1930s Jamaica. Scott's 'Windrush'-generation parents move to 1950s London, where the substance of this 550-page biog-come-novel really begins, taking the reader up to the present day. Tragedies and taboo issues are frequent and there are no fictional characters or scenarios, so you find yourself immersed in the emotional authenticity of each page. The mood could be described as dark and disturbing in places (e.g. a graphic and deeply worrying boyhood voodoo protection ritual), but the issues are always starkly human: unrequited love, hate, and loss; sex, sexuality and 'coming out'; religion and homosexuality; disease, death and dying; domestic violence and borderline child chastisement/abuse; divorce; racism and homophobia; prejudice and equality challenges at home and abroad; gay/lesbian baby-making and parenting; fathers and family court; mental health, depression and suicidal bids. Even voodoo and the paranormal make a surprising (and very convincing!) appearance, as does the likes of HRH Diana, Princess of Wales, among others. In their respective forewords, Lord Paul Boateng says the book has "a searing honesty", and Peter Tatchell, the renowned human rights activist, refers to it as "painful and shocking in its exposure of raw prejudice." Sir Nick Partridge, CEO of the Terrence Higgins Trust, describes the book as "remarkable, sobering and powerful." Scott rips into 'shame-inducing religion', but most compellingly, he relives the truly horrific impact of HIV and AIDS on both gay and heterosexual communities in the 80s and 90s. With 75 million people directly affected around the globe, including 35 million deaths, God's Other Children captures the essence and relevance of World AIDS Day; walking in Scott's shoes, the reader lives the pain and tears of too many premature goodbyes caused by a terrifying and merciless killer disease. Finding himself at the forefront of the response to the crisis, he recalls the period as "a conveyor belt of death and dying"; acknowledges HIV as a virus of equal opportunity; and sees the pain it causes as human, not gay, straight, black, or white. Setting out the national and international statistics, he further states: "Every day is World AIDS Day; there are real people behind the horrendous numbers." The various accounts make tearful, heartbreaking reading, especially when AIDS comes home... Emotionally scarred by the 'AIDS war years', Scott's subsequent journey into gay fatherhood delivers its own challenges, and compounded by an avalanche of deaths, he begins to play (sexual) Russian roulette with his life. But will his waning Christian faith rescue him? He says of religion: "Even dead sheep would be compelled to question it". God's Other Children: A London Memoir includes scores of previously unpublished London-shot photos, which add extra vibrancy to an already thumping read, including those of the historic six thousand-person strong Reach Out & Touch UK AIDS Vigil, and liaisons with legendary ladies of song, such as Whitney Houston, Dionne Warwick, and Gloria Gaynor. A triumphant if tragic debut, the Polari judges and ordinary readers are full of praise for good reason. Both the book and its author are deserving of the highest possible commendation. Expect to be informed, moved, inspired and (inadvertently) entertained.

Children living in poverty have the same God-given potential as children in wealthier communities, but on average they achieve at significantly lower levels. Kids who both live in poverty and read below grade level by third grade are three times as likely not to graduate from high school as students who have never been poor. By the time children in low-income communities are in fourth grade, they're already three grade levels behind their peers in wealthier communities. More than half won't graduate from high school--and many that do graduate only perform at an eighth-grade level. Only one in ten will go on to graduate from college. These students have severely diminished opportunities for personal prosperity and professional success. It is clear that America's public schools do not provide a high quality public education for the sixteen million children growing up in poverty. Education expert Nicole Baker Fulgham explores what Christians can--and should--do to champion urgently needed reform and help improve our public schools. The book provides concrete action steps for working to ensure that all of God's children get the quality public education they deserve. It also features personal narratives from the author and other Christian public school teachers that demonstrate how the achievement gap in public education can be solved.

Blessed are the Peace Keepers, for they will be called God's Children. [Matthew; 5:9] It is from this Biblical saying that Harold Coyle has taken the title of his new novel, God's Children. Yet peacekeeping is not child's play. A tale of high-tech warfare set in near-future Slovakia, God's Children is the story of the 3rd Platoon, C Company, 2nd Battalion of the 13th Infantry, and two young officers who try to keep a peace that is falling apart before their very eyes. Simultaneously an action-filled adventure and a study of contemporary issues facing today's soldier, this novel displays Coyle's vast knowledge of military affairs through thrilling yet realistic scenes. Proving once again that Coyle is a master of military fiction, God's Children is as timeless as war itself. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
