              From an award-winning Mother Jones journalist comes the inside story of the decades-long search for identifiable profiles and warning signs of mass shooters, by way of specialized teams of psychologists, cops, and ordinary citizens who are working successfully to detect and preve...nt these traumatic attacks--a fearless, in-depth, and ultimately redemptive account of an epidemic that desperately needs solving. Mass shootings in the United States have tripled in frequency since 2011 and grown more lethal; by one metric, there were more mass shootings in 2019 than days in the calendar year. Despite these staggering statistics, the aftermath is always a familiar cacophony of thoughts and prayers, sensationalized media coverage, and polarizing debates over the Second Amendment. But in recent years, threat assessment teams led by forensic psychologists and law enforcement experts have pursued an entirely different approach to combatting the problem: they focus on the behaviors and circumstances leading up to acts of mass violence--warning signs often glaring yet overlooked. In Trigger Points, award-winning journalist and Mother Jones editor Mark Follman traces the evolution of behavioral threat analysis--from pioneering psychologists' interviews with the criminally insane at a Massachusetts hospital in the 1970s to stalking behaviors discovered by Secret Service agents in the aftermath of John Lennon's assassination and the shooting of Ronald Reagan, to a revolutionizing of the field that accelerated with Columbine and deepened further after Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook, Las Vegas, and Parkland. Follman reveals how a branch of forensic psychology rooted in early efforts to stop presidential assassinations and in the FBI's study of serial killers was eventually adapted to thwart the rampage violence brewing within our communities; he goes inside the FBI's elite Behavioral Analysis Unit and immerses in an innovative program to prevent school shootings with the Salem-Keizer schoo

              Over the past hundred years, scholars have attacked the historical truth of the Gospels and argued that they were originally anonymous and filled with contradictions. In The Case for Jesus, Brant Pitre taps into the wells of Christian scripture, history, and tradition to ask and ...answer a number of different questions, including: If we don't know who wrote the Gospels, how can we trust them? How are the four Gospels different from other gospels, such as the lost gospel of Q and the Gospel of Thomas ? How can the four Gospels be historically true when there are differences between them? How much faith should be put into these writings? As The Case for Jesus will show, recent discoveries in New Testament scholarship, as well as neglected evidence from ancient manuscripts and the early church fathers, together have the potential to pull the rug out from under a century of skepticism toward the apostolic authorship and historical truth of the traditional Gospels.

              Throughout her blockbuster career, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult has seamlessly blended nuanced characters, riveting plots, and rich prose, brilliantly creating stories that not only provoke the mind but touch the flawed souls in all of us ( The Boston Globe ).... Now, in her highly anticipated new book, she has delivered her most affecting novel yet--and one unlike anything she's written before. For more than a decade, Jenna Metcalf has never stopped thinking about her mother, Alice, who mysteriously disappeared in the wake of a tragic accident. Refusing to believe that she would be abandoned as a young child, Jenna searches for her mother regularly online and pores over the pages of Alice's old journals. A scientist who studied grief among elephants, Alice wrote mostly of her research among the animals she loved, yet Jenna hopes the entries will provide a clue to her mother's whereabouts. Desperate to find the truth, Jenna enlists two unlikely allies in her quest. The first is Serenity Jones, a psychic who rose to fame finding missing persons--only to later doubt her gifts. The second is Virgil Stanhope, a jaded private detective who originally investigated Alice's case along with the strange, possibly linked death of one of her colleagues. As the three work together to uncover what happened to Alice, they realize that in asking hard questions, they'll have to face even harder answers. As Jenna's memories dovetail with the events in her mother's journals, the story races to a mesmerizing finish. A deeply moving, gripping, and intelligent page-turner, Leaving Time is Jodi Picoult at the height of her powers.

              A riveting, powerful debut novel from an award-winning adventure writer: the story of a pilot surviving in a world filled with loss--and of what he is willing to risk to rediscover, against all odds, connection, love, and grace. Hig survived the flu that killed everyone he knows.... His wife is gone, his friends are dead, he lives in the hangar of a small abandoned airport with his dog, his only neighbor a gun-toting misanthrope. In his 1956 Cessna, Hig flies the perimeter of the airfield or sneaks off to the mountains to fish and pretend that things are the way they used to be. But when a random transmission somehow beams through his radio, the voice ignites a hope deep inside him that a better life--something like his old life--exists beyond the airport. Risking everything, he flies past his point of no return--not enough fuel to get him home--following the trail of the static-broken voice on the radio. But what he encounters and what he must face--in the people he meets, and in himself--is both better and worse than anything he could have hoped for.

              The former attorney general provides a candid account of his historic tenures serving two vastly different presidents, George H.W. Bush and Donald J. Trump. William Barr's first tenure as attorney general under President George H.W. Bush was largely the result of chance, while hi...s second tenure under President Donald Trump a deliberate and difficult choice. In this candid memoir, Barr takes readers behind the scenes during seminal moments of the 1990s, from the LA riots to Pan Am 103 and Iran Contra. Thirty years later, Barr faced an unrelenting barrage of issues, such as Russiagate, the COVID outbreak, civil unrest, the impeachments, and the 2020 election fallout. One Damn Thing After Another is vivid, forthright, and essential not only to understanding the Bush and Trump legacies, but also how both men viewed power and justice at critical junctures of their presidencies.
