Bang the Drum Slowly is the second in a series of four novels written by Mark Harris that chronicles the career of baseball player Henry W. Wiggen. This series is among the finest novels ever written to use baseball as a theme. Published in 1956, the book is a simple, moving testament to the immutable power of friendship. The title page in the novel reads; “by Henry W. Wiggen / Certain of His Enthusiasms Restrained by Mark Harris”, the author’s personal touch that tells us (the reader) that we are about to enter a genial, conversational first-person story. Wiggen is a gifted pitcher in the major leagues, playing for a team that includes a mediocre catcher named Bruce Pearson--a slow-talking Georgia boy who tries the patience of the team. Pearson has a secret; he has been diagnosed with Hodgkins’ disease which threatens not only his life but also the baseball career that he so desperately wants. When Wiggen learns of Pearson’s illness, their casual acquaintanceship deepens into a profound friendship. Wiggen fights heroically to keep Pearson on the team, saving his friend from being sent down to the minors, and he also rallies other teammates to help his friend. The miracle is that Pearson is transformed into a better ballplayer... but the miracle is brief for the man’s time has already run out. In lesser hands, this story could be cloying or overly sentimental, but Harris writes with a gentle, unassuming dignity. His freewheeling colloquial style verges on an easy stream of consciousness. Wiggen is an engaging character and his observations are lucid and refreshing. The characters are wonderfully realized, from the drawling Pearson to team manager Dutch Schnell. It may be that what makes Bang the Drum Slowlya great novel is that it is not entirely a sports novel but also a warm human comedy complete with believable real-life tragic events, set in the familiar, magical world of American baseball. Bang the Drum Slowly is #14 on the Sports Illustrated Greatest 100 Sports books.

Terms such as "expanding Universe", "big bang", and "initial singularity", are nowadays part of our common language. The idea that the Universe we observe today originated from an enormous explosion (big bang) is now well known and widely accepted, at all levels, in modern popular culture. But what happens to the Universe before the big bang? And would it make any sense at all to ask such a question? In fact, recent progress in theoretical physics, and in particular in String Theory, suggests answers to the above questions, providing us with mathematical tools able in principle to reconstruct the history of the Universe even for times before the big bang. In the emerging cosmological scenario the Universe, at the epoch of the big bang, instead of being a "new born baby" was actually a rather "aged" creature in the middle of its possibly infinitely enduring evolution. The aim of this book is to convey this picture in non-technical language accessibile also to non-specialists. The author, himself a leading cosmologist, draws attention to ongoing and future observations that might reveal relics of an era before the big bang.

WHY WERE ADAM AND EVE SO EXTREMELY BRIGHT? WHY DOES A MODERN VIEW OF TIME DENY THE EXISTENCE OF PURGATORY AND UNIVERSALISM? WHAT WAS GOD DOING ON EASTER SATURDAY? SHOULD WE THINK OF THE BIBLE STORY UNDER A NEW PARADIGM? PREDESTINATION: HOW WERE ALL THE REFORMERS WRONG? WOMEN IN MINISTRY TODAY? DOES JESUS REALLY HAVE AUTHENTIC COMPETITORS? WHY ARE THERE MORE MIRACLES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT? WHAT DO SIGNS AND WONDERS MEAN FOR TODAY? WHY ARE A VERY LARGE PERCENTAGE OF SCIENTISTS TURNING TOWARDS THE CREDIBILITY OF A HIGHLY INTELLIGENT CREATOR? WHAT WAS JESUS ATTITUDE TOWARDS CURRENT SOCIAL ISSUES? ACCORDING TO JESUS, WHY ARE THE PAROUSIA AND LATTER DAYS VERY, VERY CLOSE RIGHT NOW? WHY DO HISTORIC CHURCHES INSIST ON A WRONG VIEW OF ORDERS? WAS THE FIRST AND SECOND CENTURY CHURCH HIERARCHICAL? HOW DOES THE ENTIRE BIBLICAL STORY POINT TO JESUS?

Extend the human story backward for the five thousand years of recorded history and it covers no more than a millionth of a lifetime of the Earth. Yet how do we humans take stock of the history of our planet, and our own place within it? A “vast historical mosaic” (Publishers Weekly) rendered engaging and accessible, Big History interweaves different disciplines of knowledge to offer an all-encompassing account of history on Earth. Since its publication, Cynthia Brown’s “world history on a grand scale” (Kirkus) has been translated into nine languages and has helped propel the “big history” concept to viral status. This new edition of Brown’s seminal work is more relevant today than ever before, as we increasingly must grapple with accelerating rates of change and, ultimately, the legacy we will bequeath to future generations. Here is a pathbreaking portrait of our world, from the birth of the universe from a single point the size of an atom to life on a twenty-first-century planet inhabited by 7 billion people.
