READING: #1 New York Times Bestseller | Named one of the Best Books of the Year by The New York Times • The Washington Post • The Boston Globe • The Seattle Times • Esquire • Time Winner of the Carnegie Medal for Nonfiction | Winner of the NAACP Image Award for Nonfiction | Winner of a Books for a Better Life Award | Finalist for the Los Angeles Book Prize | Finalist for the Kirkus Reviews Prize | An American Library Association Notable Book A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice—from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever. Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice. Praise for Just Mercy “Every bit as moving as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so . . . a searing indictment of American criminal justice and a stirring testament to the salvation that fighting for the vulnerable sometimes yields.”—David Cole, The New York Review of Books “Searing, moving . . . Bryan Stevenson may, indeed, be America’s Mandela.”—Nicholas Kristof, The New York Times “You don’t have to read too long to start cheering for this man. . . . The message of this book . . . is that evil can be overcome, a difference can be made. Just Mercy will make you upset and it will make you hopeful.”—Ted Conover, The New York Times Book Review “Inspiring . . . a work of style, substance and clarity . . . Stevenson is not only a great lawyer, he’s also a gifted writer and storyteller.”—The Washington Post “As deeply moving, poignant and powerful a book as has been, and maybe ever can be, written about the death penalty.”—The Financial Times “Brilliant.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “Not since Atticus Finch has a fearless and committed lawyer made such a difference in the American South. Though larger than life, Atticus exists only in fiction. Bryan Stevenson, however, is very much alive and doing God’s work fighting for the poor, the oppressed, the voiceless, the vulnerable, the outcast, and those with no hope. Just Mercy is his inspiring and powerful story.”—John Grisham “Bryan Stevenson is one of my personal heroes, perhaps the most inspiring and influential crusader for justice alive today, and Just Mercy is extraordinary. The stories told within these pages hold the potential to transform what we think we mean when we talk about justice.”—Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow

READING: In this young adult adaptation of the acclaimed bestselling Just Mercy, which the New York Times calls "as compelling as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so," Bryan Stevenson delves deep into the broken U.S. justice system, detailing from his personal experience his many challenges and efforts as a lawyer and social advocate, especially on behalf of America's most rejected and marginalized people. In this very personal work--proceeds of which will go to charity--Bryan Stevenson recounts many and varied stories of his work as a lawyer in the U.S. criminal justice system on behalf of those in society who have experienced some type of discrimination and/or have been wrongly accused of a crime and who deserve a powerful advocate and due justice under the law. Through the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), an organization Stevenson founded as a young lawyer and for which he currently serves as Executive Director, this important work continues. EJI strives to end mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, working to protect basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society. "A deeply moving collage of true stories . . . .This is required reading." --Kirkus, Starred Review Praise for Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption: "Important and compelling." --Pulitzer Prize-winning author TRACY KIDDER "Gripping. . . . What hangs in the balance is nothing less than the soul of a great nation." --DESMOND TUTU, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate "An inspiring and powerful story." --#1 New York Times bestselling author JOHN GRISHAM

READING: Op de Eerste Pinksterdag van 2010 komt Tonio van der Heijden, het enig kind van A.F.Th. van der Heijden en Mirjam Rotenstreich, bij een verkeersongeval om het leven. Het is vroeg in de ochtend als hij, ter hoogte van het Vondelpark in het centrum van Amsterdam, wordt geschept door een auto. Hij wordt in kritieke toestand naar het Academisch Medisch Centrum vervoerd, waar hij diezelfde dag aan zijn verwondingen overlijdt. Tonio zal niet ouder worden dan 21 jaar. A.F.Th. van der Heijden doet het enige waar hij op dat moment toe in staat is: in zijn herinnering graven, aantekeningen maken, schrijven. Daarbij voortgedreven door twee dwingende vragen: wat gebeurde er met Tonio in de laatste uren en dagen voorafgaand aan de ramp, en hoe kon dit ongeluk plaatsvinden? Een zoektocht naar het wat en het hoe, die leidt langs verschillende ooggetuigen, vrienden, politiemensen, artsen en het mysterieuze meisje Jenny, dat in de laatste weken van Tonios leven een cruciale rol blijkt te hebben vervuld. Tonio vormt de neerslag van die zoektocht. Een nauwgezette reconstructie van een jongensleven en een radeloze queeste naar zin en betekenis.

READING: Bernadette Baker lives through every mother's worst nightmare when her adopted sixteen-year-old daughter, Veronica, is brutally murdered in a shocking and random act of violence. Ten years later the murderer, Raelynn Blackwell, is facing execution for her crime, and despite being united in their grief over Veronica, the Baker family is deeply divided on the subject of the death penalty. On one side is Veronica's deeply spiritual and sensitive brother who believes that the death penalty is the last thing his baby sister would have wanted. On the opposite side is their tough-as-nails older sister who vehemently believes that death is the only way justice will be served. In the center is Bernadette, who is deeply ambivalent and longs for a resolution that will help her family move forward. After Raelynn receives a last-minute stay of execution, a secret is revealed that changes everything and leads to an unlikely bond between Raelynn and Bernadette. Just Mercy is a heart-wrenching and ultimately redemptive family drama of forgiveness, destiny, and the true nature of justice. "This family drama is a must-read that teaches us about the true nature of justice and our very humanity." -Sr. Helen Prejean, C.S.J., author of Dead Man Walking "A stunning achievement...surprising twists and turns as a family, shattered by the heinous killing of their youngest member, must come to terms with life-altering truths." -Hal Zina Bennett, author of bestseller Write From the Heart

READING: Een zinderende, fijnzinnig gecomponeerde roman over drie jonge antropologen die in het woeste landschap van Nieuw-Guinea verwikkeld raken in een hartstochtelijke driehoeksverhouding die een bedreiging zal vormen voor hun vriendschap, hun carrière en uiteindelijk zelfs voor hun leven. Andrew Bankson, een jonge Engelse antropoloog, doet al een paar jaar in zijn eentje veldwerk bij de Kiona, een stam die aan een rivier in het territorium Nieuw-Guinea (het tegenwoordige Papoea Nieuw-Guinea) leeft. Bankson gaat gebukt onder herinneringen aan zijn jong overleden broers en is in zijn werk steeds gefrustreerder en eenzamer geworden. Hij heeft een mislukte zelfmoordpoging achter de rug als hij bij toeval twee collega's ontmoet, Nell Stone en haar cynische, wispelturige Australische echtgenoot Fen. Nell Stone heeft naam gemaakt met een beroemd maar controversieel boek. Ze is op zoek naar een nieuw hoogtepunt in haar carrière en naar liefde in haar kinderloos gebleven huwelijk. Nell en Fen zijn net ontkomen aan de bloeddorstige Mumbanyo en smachten ondanks Nells slechte gezondheid naar nieuwe ontdekkingen. Als Bankson even buiten het leefgebied van de Kiona een nieuwe stam voor hen opspoort, de kunstzinnige, door vrouwen gedomineerde Tam, ontketent hij daarmee een intellectuele en romantische vuurzee tussen het drietal die al snel niet meer te beheersen is. Met Euforie, geïnspireerd op gebeurtenissen uit het leven van de baanbrekende antropologe Margaret Mead, legt Lily King haar meesterproef af. Het is een meeslepend verhaal over hartstocht, bezitsdrang, opofferingsgezindheid en de euforie van nieuwe ontdekkingen, dat zich afspeelt in het interbellum en dat ook een indringend beeld geeft van de antropologie in haar primitieve hoogtijdagen. 'Een scherp geobserveerd, intelligent en prachtig geschreven verhaal over de strijd tussen ego's en hun verlangens in een exotische, dreigende entourage - een driehoeksverhouding in extremis.' - The New York Times Book Review

READING: This is a new 4 week group or individual guide based on Micah 6:8, providing the central resource for 'Micah Challenge' - a significant global movement where all national campaigns join together to provide a stronger global voice in its efforts to hold leaders to account to halve extreme poverty by 2015. The campaign will initially focus on 10.10.10 (10th October 2010) and aims to mobilize 100 million Christians to pray a global prayer; 10 million to make a promise to the poor, signified by making handprints; 1000 politicians visited with these handprints by ‘ordinary prophets’ – Christians young and old, rich and poor who may never have undertaken such advocacy actions before. Each week will include Bible study, group activities, practical and devotional responses and contributions from key global worship leaders around the world, encouraging Christians to make justice more than politics but what ordinary Christians do as part of their worship. The printed resource will be backed up with free downloadable material and an accompanying worship CD will be published by Kingsway. The 4 studies will focus on our walk with God, humility, mercy and justice. The campaign goes through to 2015 with a different focus each year to highlight issues of justice and mercy in our world.

READING: Shortly after, two men stood at the entrance of the apartment, the bullet riddled bodies told a story of horror. Both men were dressed impeccably. One wore a blue pinstripe suit, white shirt, red satin tie, navy blue alligator shoes and a Borsalino that was carefully broken down just right, shadowing his handsome face. His fingers were laced in diamonds and he carried a cane with the head of a lion with jeweled eyes. In front of him came in a slender gentlemen, dress in a black suit and dark shades he was called Decipher. He was the one that made sure the room was clear standing with his back against the opened door gun in hand. The man with the cane walked into the room stepping over dead bodies. He quickly went into the bedroom he removed the recliner that protected the hidden floor compartment. He opened the compartment door and removed the infant she was fine. She smiled up at him and through all that chaos she never made a sound. He pulled her close to his chest and kissed her on the forehead. Before leaving he removed several envelopes from the compartment and money that was stacked in hundred dollar increments. He walked over to Ebony’s body and removed the sterling silver heart locket from her neck. He and the gentlemen left. Sirens echoed from a short distance, the boys in blue were coming it was only two hours later.

READING: In 'Vreemdelingen in hun eigen land' verlaat de beroemde socioloog Arlie Hochschild Californië, haar progressief linkse, kosmopolitische enclave vol gelijkgestemden, en trekt vijf jaar op met haar rechtse landgenoten in Louisiana, een van de armste en meest conservatieve staten van Amerika. Daar leert ze mensen kennen die een heel ander leven leiden en er ideeën op nahouden die haaks staan op die van haar. Hochschild raakt bevriend met een automonteur, een aannemer, een telefoonreparateur, een handelsreiziger, een vrachtwagenchauffeur, een conciërge en een gospelzanger, en probeert te achterhalen waarom zij tegen hun eigen belangen in aanhangers zijn van politici als Donald Trump en op hem stemmen. Het blijkt dat de angst voor culturele achterstelling, economische achteruitgang en het gevoel verraden te zijn door de staat doorslaggevend zijn. Tijdens haar zoektocht vindt Hochschild antwoorden op een van de cruciale vragen van de hedendaagse westerse politiek: waarom verzetten mensen zich met hand en tand tegen 'progressieve' overheidsinterventies terwijl zij daar zelf het meest van kunnen profiteren? Een must read voor iedereen die de opkomst van het rechtspopulisme en de alt-right-beweging wil doorgronden.
