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: Hillbilly Blues is analyse van een cultuur in crisis - die van de blanke Amerikaanse arbeidersklasse. Niet eerder werd er zo scherp, en van binnenuit, over deze bevolkingsgroep geschreven. J. D. Vance vertelt hoe het is om geboren te worden met sociale en regionale ellende als een wurgkoord om je nek. Het verhaal van de familie Vance begint vol hoop, in het Amerika van na de oorlog. Zijn grootouders verhuisden naar Ohio omdat ze wilden ontsnappen aan de armoede in hun thuisstreek Kentucky. Ze bouwden een middenklassebestaan op, en hun kleinzoon (de auteur) zou uiteindelijk naar Yale Law School gaan: de American Dream. Maar dit is de oppervlakkige versie van de sage. Gaandeweg toont Vance hoe zijn familie geworsteld heeft met de eisen die dit nieuwe bestaan stelde. Het is hun nooit gelukt de geschiedenis van misbruik, alcoholisme, armoede en trauma - zo typerend voor deze groep Amerikanen - van zich af te schudden. Een ontroerende verhaal, met humor verteld en vol kleurrijke figuren. Vance maakt het verlies van de Amerikaanse droom bitter voelbaar. Dit is een eerlijk verhaal over wat het betekent als al je hoop in duigen valt. Een belangrijker boek over Amerika zul je dit jaar niet lezen.' - The Economist 'Een empathische en scherpe sociologische analyse.' - The New York Times 'Deze elegie, deze melancholische klaagzang over zijn diepe loyaliteit met een verdoemde klasse die hij achterlaat, gaat over meer dan zijn privé-verhaal. Via Vance krijgen we een inkijkje in Amerika als klassensamenleving.' - De Groene Amsterdammer

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: 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.

READING: Warning This is an independent addition to Just Mercy, meant to enhance your experience of the original book. If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. This review of Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, by Bryan Stevenson, provides a chapter by chapter detailed summary followed by an analysis and critique of the strengths and weaknesses of the book. The main theme explored in the book is the injustice of our criminal justice system. The author uses the case of Walter McMillian's wrongful conviction of murder and imprisonment as an overarching example of how the U.S. justice system does not prosecute fairly. The author focuses on how race, socioeconomic status, and even age have an effect on how certain criminals are convicted. Stevenson uses his personal experience as a lawyer for the Equal Justice Initiative and more than 25 years fighting for the rights of people who could not afford legal counsel as a basis for this novel. Through his own experiences, the author makes the case that it is often the people on the fringe of society who need proper justice and mercy, and yet, they are the ones who are least likely to receive it. By sharing his own case work, the author demonstrates how unjust death penalty convictions have been over the past fifty years and how hard it is to truly make change in the system. The central thesis of the work is that we are more than the worst things we have done. Yet, we live in a country that will, on the basis of one poor choice or decision, condemn a person to life in prison, or worse, death. Even further, law enforcement often targets those who have neither the money nor education to fight back, and this has had a direct correlation to the rise in mass incarceration over the past century. The author's purpose is to shine a light on this and bring about the kind of change that uses mercy as its own form of justice. Bryan Stevenson is a lawyer, social justice activist, and the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative. He attended Eastern University and graduated in 1981. After that he attended Harvard Law School where he found his career calling by working for the Southern Center for Human Rights. He has since traveled the country, working for EJI, and speaking about the politics and social injustice of the prison system and death penalty.

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: Special agent Atlee Pine is gestationeerd in het westelijk deel van de Verenigde Staten, waar de bevolking op zichzelf is, de overheid gewantrouwd wordt en de natuur geen genade kent. Op vijfjarige leeftijd werd haar tweelingzusje ontvoerd door een seriemoordenaar en vanaf het moment dat ze oud genoeg was om bij de FBI te gaan, heeft Atlee haar leven gewijd aan het opsporen van degenen die anderen kwaad willen doen. En ze is goed. Heel goed. Ze zou een van de beste profilers van de FBI kunnen zijn, als ze niet de voorkeur gaf aan het bestrijden van criminaliteit in de outback van Amerika boven carrière maken in de slangenkuil van Washington D.C. Een eenzaam bestaan, maar daar heeft ze vrede mee. Wanneer het verminkte karkas van een muilezel wordt gevonden in de Grand Canyon wordt Atlees hulp ingeroepen. De berijder wordt vermist en hij blijkt niet de enige persoon te zijn die recentelijk is verdwenen. Atlee komt tegenover een gruwelijk monster te staan, maar moet ook de confrontatie aan met een nachtmerrie uit haar verleden.
