    In the era of colorblindness, it is no longer socially permissible to use race, explicitly, as a justification for discrimination, exclusion, and social contempt. Yet, as legal star Michelle Alexander reveals, today it is perfectly legal to discriminate against convicted criminals in nearly all the ways that it was once legal to discriminate against African Americans.

    Jeremy says: "An essential read. A horrifying reality."
    "necessary read"

    What did you love best about The New Jim Crow?

    I found more how prejudice permeates our world still.


    Any additional comments?

    I think everyone in America should read this necessary book. Michelle Alexander is well schooled in this topic and has done her research well. Only God can turn our hearts away from fear and hate but we can educate ourselves in how to recognize the fear in our hearts and the hearts of others.

    With inspiring stories and thought-provoking questions, Ravi Zacharias traces the multiple threads of our lives, describing how the unseen hand of God guides our joys, our tragedies, and our daily humdrum experiences to weave a pattern of divine providence and meaning.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Grand Weaver to be better than the print version?

    I've experienced both. I enjoyed hearing Ravi's tender voice delivering his message of love.

    Long renowned as one of the smartest writers on the loose, David Foster Wallace reveals himself in Consider the Lobster to be also one of the funniest. In this program, he ranges far and farther in his search for the original, the curious, or the merely mystifying. He discovers the World's Largest Lobster Cooker at the Maine Lobster Festival and confronts the inevitable question just beyond the butter-or-cocktail-sauce quandary.

    Rick says: "David Foster Wallace...a good place to start"
    "an excellent read"
