"Amazing Grace is a very unpretentious book-episodes in the life of a small town in W. Tennessee, related by a man, never overtly characterized but somehow growing before our eyes, in a style as clear as plate glass-glass beyond whic a reality glows, comic, sad, tender. Making no pretensions, the book accomplishes its own small, but authentic, miracle. For if we can ever see even a small segment of life clearly-that is, offered with the self-denying artistry and veracity whidh we find here-such a smimple segment, merely because its nature seems suddenly illuminated, will probably move us. And because it is life, it may well become a permanent possession. At least that has been true for me, who read it first in an early edition, some twelve or fifteen years ago." Rober Penn Warrent

Breathing and Walking Around is not a memoir. It is a record of four years' worth of observations of common people, everyday events, and the natural world made by Kathy Bradley from her home in the coastal plains of South Georgia. A lawyer by training, a storyteller by nature, she shares with precision and layer upon layer of sensory image simple tales that emerge, in the end, as parables.

Cancer and Healing: Memoirs of Gratitude and Hope provides first-person glimpses into the cancer experiences of eighteen Baptists. In fact, every person connected with this book, including the publishing director, editor, and writers, has had and/or currently has cancer. Their very lives comprise the primary resources of this work. They share passionately about their own survival experiences and compassionately for those who do not survive and for those for whom the announcement of cancer may picture into their tomorrows. These writers, male and female, white and black, live in ten states. They have suffered various cancers: carcinoma, leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, melanoma, and others, which have affected many parts of their bodies and emotions. They have not written to make money. All royalties from sales of this book will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
