Summary:

Few people can claim careers in two biblical professions: minister and tax collector. In his captivating memoir, Adventures of an Ordinary Man, William Lee Goff shares the triumphs and tragedies of his life as both a Presbyterian minister and an IRS Revenue Agent. Goff writes unpretentiously with deep humanity and subtle humor about his life's adventures: learning to play the cello from a freedom fighter; overcoming his fears to become an amateur stage actor; and traveling in South Africa, Israel, Russia and Denmark. Adventures of an Ordinary Man is a compelling and rewarding read. Although a native of St. Louis, Missouri, William Lee Goff spent his formative years in Los Angeles, California. He earned a bachelor's degree in English from UCLA and then went on to Fuller Theological Seminary where he completed a Doctor of Ministry degree. Goff has had dual careers, one as an ordained Presbyterian minister who served as pastor in churches in California, Colorado, and Idaho. His alter ego had a nearly 25-year career with the IRS. Goff lives with his wife, Tatyana, in Southern California.

Summary:

Confronting killers with a combination of diplomacy, flatter, and deception, Paul Rusesabagina managed to shelter more than 1,200 Tutsis and moderate Hutus while homicidal mobs raged outside with machetes during the Rwandan genocide. His autobiography explores the inner life of the man in a way the film could not. Rusesabagina discusses the racial complexity within his own life - he is a Hutu married to a Tutsi - and his complete estrangement from the madness that surrounded him during the genocide. The book takes the reader inside the hotel during those 100 days, relates the anguish of those who saw loved ones hacked to pieces, and describes Rusesabagina's ambivalence at pouring the Scotch and lighting the cigars of killers in the Swimming Pool bar, even as he hid as many refugees as possible inside the guest rooms upstairs. Never-before-reported elements of the Rwandan genocide will be disclosed in this book, such as the lack of interest of the international community , and the disgraceful behavior of some of the UN peacekeeping troops, who purchased the cars of the Tutsis who had taken shelter inside the hotel. An Ordinary Man draws parallels between what happened in Rwanda with other genocides throughout history and asks the question: What causes an entire nation to go insane? It also offers an inside look at the problem of genocide and the responsibilities of ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events. It concludes with an exploration of the tremendous power of words to sow hatred, but also to bring life and hope.

Summary:

On March 10, 1993, the author underwent his second open-heart surgery. Diary is a year’s worth of events, thoughts, incentives, and reactions to, that came about in the wake of this highly traumatic experience in one’s life. It records that life not only goes on without bothering to slow down; it rather picks up its speed while expanding on its subjects. Night driving, beach thunder storm, snow winter storms, car repairs; indoctrination, religion, immortality, funny bone; small man vs. corporate man, citizen vs. cop, near-death moments vs. reality, poems; seemingly racist, opinionated, slanted, color red; Europeans and the scourge of the world; times when Pepsi was still another Cola; no subject is a taboo. When gas was $1.30 for a gallon of unleaded super. Entries are dramatized somewhat, yet faithful to the spirit of the events treated. Some could be cut out and pasted on a refrigerator door, such as “Ridicule is an offshoot of arrogance, arrogance of superiority, and superiority of ignorance (page 332).” The anchor event is the author’s car crash that might or might not have led to his aortic valve’s replacement. And it is the event that conceived the Diary, in retrospect notwithstanding. The event that also gave birth to philosophical essays not normally expected to be triggered by. Almost twenty years since, is the history repeating itself? Back then, “rain forest” replaced “jungle,” today “climate change” replaces “global warming.” Whom are we kidding?

Summary:

I enjoy writing. I don’t possess an imagination that can make up fiction, so I only write about actual historical events particularly those that occurred during my life. As has been said, truth can be stranger than fiction. Necessarily, my writings include stories involving my forebears, but they predominantly document events that took place during my marriage with Alida. I was born and raised in Scotland, a country known for its excellent education system. I was able to read and write before my sixth birthday. As a boy, I read extensively, first comics then the classics. I say “comics” but the weekly publications (Rover, Wizard and others) consisted solely of adventure stories, words without any pictures. Boys would create pictures in their own minds to illustrate what they were reading. I hope that readers will be able to form word pictures in their imaginations when they read the stories in this book.

Summary:

Honed by poverty, harsh weather and the bitterness of British rule, Ireland’s children left their native land by the tens of thousands at the turn of the century. This is the story of the Finns, the McCanns and the Kellys, three families who battle their way from the New York City ghetto to the respectability of Astoria, Long Island. As their prosperity grows, so too does a fierce love for the country that took them in and gave them opportunity to be free of the degradation of poverty. When that country calls during World War II, they answer with enthusiasm and learn to love, fear, live and die far from the land they have grown to love.

Summary:

An ordinary man found that serving a great God is always a rewarding life. He saw lives changed from the bondage and hopelessness of sin to lives of great victory and peace. His calling took him to dangerous places where he faced wolves, bandits, guns, bombs, and even being lost in the mountains at night. He faced poverty, famine, and the death of many loved ones, and he found that God was sufficient for each day. This man was Knute Hjalmar Ekblad, missionary to North China in the early 1900's. His faith in his great God is contagious to any reader.

Summary:

An Ordinary Man is a tale of the 21st Century with its domination by the Internet and cellular phones of hitherto unimaginable power and versatility, and instant access to news and information through the click of a mouse. A world dramatically and permanently changed from the simpler existence of less than twenty years ago, a lifetime in modern parlance. Quincy Peters is an ordinary man, almost devoid of social skills and with a marked tendency towards self-effacement but he has extra-ordinary ability when it comes to finance. Driven from his home by circumstances, he becomes involved in the lives of Grant Anderson, a rich and powerful Washington lawyer, and his family. Propelled by happenstance, Quincy becomes a pawn in high finance, political intrigue, the machinations of powerful Congressional leaders and the struggle for election to the most powerful position in the world, President of the United States. The enigmatic and unknown Quincy soon becomes much sought after by political leaders and intelligence agencies, both National and Foreign. He becomes a catalyst for dramatic changes in other people and the National psyche but seemingly is unaffected himself. Quincy Peters, popularly known as the guru of finance and the Sage of Wall Street, is pursued for economic advice but resists the blandishments of the rich and powerful until the truth about him comes out, and his political trajectory becomes unstoppable. No longer can he be An Ordinary Man.
