April 8, 2003: U.S. Army Chaplain Jaime Richards is stunned when her civilian friend Adara Dunbar staggers, mortally wounded, out of the Iraqi night, with an urgent "package" for Jaime to drop at ruins of the ancient city of Ur, now inside a U.S. military base. Jaime is soon pulled into a web of 5,000-year-old secrets as she joins forces with Adara's mysterious brother on a quest through Ur, Babylon, Baghdad, and Iraq's southern swamps to save a hidden treasure that powerful men are willing to steal and kill - and start a war - to find.

This story was wonderfully written. It is so well rounded with realistic fiction elements. As a reader, I could visualize the events and the places they took place. I loved this book. I loved the journey through the Middle East during the time of conflict. Excellent read.

America's problem with race has deep roots, with the country's foundation tied to the near extermination of one race of people and the enslavement of another. Racism is truly our nation's original sin. "It's time we right this unacceptable wrong", says best-selling author and leading Christian activist Jim Wallis. Fifty years ago, Wallis was driven away from his faith by a white church that considered dealing with racism to be taboo.

Transformative. Wallis deals with the past, present, and future in regards to the battle against racism.

This book is the best I've ever read in regards to explaining in entirety the historical context of racial oppression in America, it's damage, the current injustices and what needs to happen in order to move forward into a society that represents the new majority of diversity. This is a must read book. It should be the center of dialogue in schools, churches and multicultural relations.
