In this important book, Putting Pants Back on the Church, Frank Mazzapica squarely addresses the steadily growing movement of gender-bending and gender confusion that is not found only in society but also in churches around the world. Men and women have lost the biblical definition of masculinity. And, as you will read in the pages of this well-researched book, there is a war being waged against men and masculinity. Mazzapica promises that there are answers to this spiritual dilemma—proven ways to attract men to return to the house of God and to restore them to positions of church leadership. All this can be accomplished without offending—but actually endorsing—female leadership and contributions to our local churches. This important book addresses the issues we all have with our local congregations: Where have all the Christian men gone? Why is there such gender confusion in the church? Whatever happened to biblical masculinity, and why has the subject become so taboo? How can our churches attract men to return to our congregations? How can we reposition men in positions of church leadership?

The Church of the Red Arrow is a book about everything at once. It is perfect for people with ADD or people who just get bored easily. You can flip around in it all day like the yellow pages and always wind up home. In this respect it is like the old saying that all roads lead to Mecca. It is poetry, fiction, and nonfiction with a section listing hundreds of unanswerable questions that are thought provoking and good topics of conversation. There are also several short stories which start out linear and end up Joycian. The book covers politics, poetry, and all sorts of paradoxes. It is philosophical and sometimes just plain dumb. I think you will find it an honest read: sometimes whimsical, sometimes seriously difficult, sometimes fusing an antithesis or two often just by accident--hence the conclusion that Lady Luck has smiled on this book. Your author has written three other volumes which could or could not hook up quite nicely with this one if everything in the world were a train. Mr. Houlihan is also a member of the Lefty Jones Band (but it is not his fault). He refuses to play out or be seen in public.

Life in America often rushes past us at a blazing speed. In this provocative and witty book, Steven Michael Hubele chronicles some of the events in his life spent with his fifty-year relationship with his father and twenty-five years of experience as a father to his two daughters. His story is full of all the minor disasters and wonderful coincidences that characterize life in the Midwest. Before his life as a published author, Steve took notes and kept track of interesting and sometimes tragic events, but always tried to keep a sense of humor. Brought to life are stories about work, playing golf, and learning how to act from his father in life and in sickness. In his trademark celebratory comment, each story ends with the words, The memories remain. The hope for reading this book is that it brings some peace as a source of merriment. Yesterdays failures and triumphs earn tomorrows joys. Steven Michael Hubele is the author of Almost Full Circle. He lives in Affton, a modest community in St. Louis County, Missouri. He continues to tell more stories and make more memories for his two daughters, just as his father did for him. Author photograph: by Allison Hubele

Things Church Girls Don't Talk About is a comical, yet poignant, story of a young church girl and her mother in search of true faith amidst a sea of toxic religion and eccentric Southern characters. Meet Mama Careen whose sass gets her into trouble when she announces her husband's adultery at his surprise birthday party. Enjoy the antics of her sister, Justine, who gets tipsy and does a "tell off" to her brother-in-law's bow-legged mistress at his funeral. Sympathize with Maggie as she tries to forgive and forget her cold, Irish father. Scoff at the narcissism of Jimmy Ray, a quirky preacher with a PH.D-a Pentecostal Hair Do. If you have a bone to pick with religion, or even if you don't, you will be wooed by this charming and powerful tale of how mercy triumphs over judgment. Excerpts from THINGS CHURCH GIRLS DON'T TALK ABOUT... Maggie McBride on Southern sayings: ..".and for your information, a Southern woman can say anything about anyone no matter how cutting or evil if she just follows it up with 'bless her heart, ' or something similar." "Don't go repeating this, but Mrs. Johnson's loose daughters, Babs and Lola, became Porn whores-bless their hearts." "Violet's thighs looked like a tub full of cottage cheese in that bathing suit-bless her heart." "Mrs. Murphy's lusty cousins, Beebe and Hortence, are both living in sin-bless their hearts." I think you get the point. ********** Careen McBride and her unique, attention seeking suicide note: Dearest Martin, Night and day, I have been down on my knees praying to God that you would leave that butt-ugly Ellen woman and come back to me and Maggie. But no, my prayers did nothing but hit the ceiling. You are still with that home wrecker who is not worth the bullets it would take to blow her brains out. Since you've been gone, I feel that there is nothing left for me to live for and I might as well just go to be with our dear Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In the event that I get up my nerve and decide to take my life, send our Maggie to live with my rich sister, Justine, if you and your bow-legged bitch don't want her. That way, at least one of us can live in Mountain Brook. Sincerely, Careen
