By David J. Keys, PhD
The Eucharistic celebration is an ancient ritual originating almost 2000 years ago. It took place during the last Passover supper Jesus had with his apostles on the day before he died. At that time, Jesus took bread, blessed it, broke it, and gave it to the apostles, saying “This is my body.” Subsequently, Jesus took the wine, gave thanks and gave it to the apostles saying, “This is my blood.” Jesus commanded the apostles to “Do this in memory of me.”

Currently, the religions of more than three-fourths of the world’s Christians believe that when these same words are said during their faith’s Eucharistic liturgy, the bread and wine turn into the real presence of Jesus Christ, that is, into the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ. In addition, many individuals belonging to those religions which believe in the real presence have little understanding of the basis for this ancient belief.

In Exploring the Belief in the Real Presence, author Dr. David J. Keys provides an understanding of the real presence in the Eucharist for both newcomers to the principle and for those who wish to extend their belief to a deeper level. Through scripture and documentation, Keys shares the beauty and richness of this ancient teaching concerning the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.

“He leaned in so close that for a second I thought he was going to kiss me. Then he pulled back and remained quiet for a little while, until he spoke in a low voice. “Marie, there’s something I need to tell you.”

While average teenage girls have to deal with the stress of pop quizzes, cheating boyfriends, two hours’ worth of homework, and choosing which Instagram picture makes them look the skinniest, Marie is far from a normal teenage girl.
She has no idea what is happening to her as she tries to convince herself she’s either going crazy or that these new abilities of super strength, sense, and controlling the elements are just unusual signs of puberty. Things start to get even more crazy when Adam Keller, an incredibly attractive new boy, tries to tell her she is the heir to the most powerful line of witches and that it’s his job to train her to use her powers.
Marie somehow finds herself in the middle of a love triangle and is forced to face conflicts that make her whole world shatter. What will Marie do when she confronts having powers, killing demons, and trying to avoid a boy that makes her heart flutter? Will she be able to walk away from everything she has ever known?

Lt. Gen. Tim Maude shares the distinction of being the highest ranking American soldier to lose his life in military action.

But unlike Lesley J. McNair and Simon B. Buckner Jr., both lieutenant generals who died during World War II, the battle he died in was not one he expected.

On Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists commandeered an American Airlines flight out of Dulles International Airport and crashed it into the southwest wall of the Pentagon, killing Maude and more than a hundred other military and civilian workers. Scores of other people were injured when the airliner ripped through the building at 530 miles per hour.

At the time of his death, Maude served as the deputy chief of staff for personnel, the Army’s chief executor of personnel policy and manager of the various programs affecting the strength and moral well-being of America’s land forces.

As one of only five members of the Army’s Adjutant General’s Corps to rise to the rank of lieutenant general, his story is one of triumph and celebration, and an abiding commitment to family, country, and service.

Weiss then turns the lens on his own life and thoughts as he sought clarity and understanding, searched for his back story, and explored his religious roots. Included are Weiss’s reflections on his personal discoveries, the nature of change, and what he gained through the process of revisiting his life story.

When fourteen-year-old Eliza Healy is dumped on the shores of Sitka Bay, Alaska, in 1867, it’s a long way from Wisconsin and her grandmother’s warm cozy kitchen. Eliza believes the idea of helping her family establish a new Evangelical Brethren Church in the Alaska Territory is exciting, but she soon realizes serving God is much more difficult than she imagined. The harsh living conditions among rough men and a shortage of food make her wonder about her family’s purpose in Alaska.

The icy waters of the bay, a shaman, and a grizzly bear are the least of Eliza’s worries the summer she arrives. As Katrina, a Russian girl, and her friend, Erm, a Tlingit girl, question and challenge Eliza’s fundamental Christian faith, she learns more about different cultures and religions. But God’s presence seems far removed from Eliza as her baby brother, Amos, and her mother become deathly ill.

These new hardships and responsibilities threaten to overwhelm Eliza, but a ruggedly handsome gold miner named Jed may just be her saving grace. Through all of her experiences, adventures, and family crises, she comes to understand God is always there and watching over her.

Fall from Grace is a candid, personal history of an academic physician and biotechnology executive that reflects on medicine as it was in the mid-twentieth century and chronicles the changes in society and medicine during the second half of that century. The book investigates the social revolution of those times; the scientific and technological advances that occurred; the influence of the computer and the digital revolution; the entry of corporate management into health care; and the effects of the profit motive on the care of patients. All of these have had enormous influence on the role of the physician in health care. The inadequacies, over the years, of the fee-for-service system and the consequent governmental involvement in reimbursement systems are discussed and compared with other health care payment systems around the world. The net effect of these various forces has been to benefit patients through greatly improved technology yet has caused medicine to evolve from an art form focused on personal care to a more technical exercise largely controlled by fiscal considerations. These changes also refashioned the role of the physician from healer and counselor into manager of an impersonal health care team. The book provides a view of the current state of medicine, patients, and physicians and a perspective on the future.

Christopher Hartley is the chair of the English department at the North Campus of Garden State University—a place he refers to as a “minimum intellectual facility.” Recently returned from a medical leave begun after the death of his wife, Holly, sixteen months earlier, he is seeking some measure of peace.

As Chris prepares a brand-new course called Music in Literature, he hopes the combination of the two disciplines—a pairing that has always fascinated him—will help him overcome his grief and deal with the estrangement of his daughter, Ivy. Peace, however, is as elusive as music itself. As he deals with his own health problems and the possibility of a new relationship with a much younger colleague, Chris moves through a chaotic and occasionally amusing fugue in which lust, love, self-worth, redemption, and meaning interweave.

This complex novel explores how music and literature aid one man as he deals with grief, considers the meaning of life and death, and struggles to come to terms with his own mortality.

Carol Kuhnert always trusted priests completely. As a child growing up in a strict Catholic family, clergy stood on pedestals next to God in her eyes. When her brother, Norman, expressed a desire to become a priest and entered the seminary after eighth grade, Carol had no idea that one day, her daughter would reveal a shocking secret: Norman was a serial pedophile.

Stunned and angered by what she learned, Carol not only reveals how she confronted her brother and the Catholic Church but also reflects on the events that led up to that moment, providing a poignant glimpse into her faith, her belief that priests were infallible, and her trust in the church, its leaders, and their assurance to her that they were handling everything. But as time passed and Carol struggled to understand why molesters were being left in active ministry and victims were being ignored, she details how she embarked on a purposeful crusade to prompt the church to take action and bring justice and hope to its sexual-abuse victims.

No Longer on Pedestals shares the powerful and inspirational true story of one woman’s journey to the truth and her subsequent heartfelt mission to reach out to abuse survivors after she learns her brother is a pedophile priest.
