A groundbreaking work of reportage on the hidden consequences of America's prison boom Life On the Outside tells the story of Elaine Bartlett, who spent sixteen years in Bedford Hills prison for selling cocaine-a first offense under New York's harsh Rockefeller drug laws. The book opens on the morning of January 26, 2000, when she is set free, having received clemency from the governor. At forty-two, Elaine has virtually nothing: no money, no job, no real home. What she does have is a large and troubled family, including four children, who live in a decrepit Lower East Side housing project. "I left one prison to come home to another," Elaine says. Over the next months, she clashes with her daughters, hunts for a job, visits her son and her husband in prison, negotiates the rules of parole, searches for her own home-and campaigns for the repeal of the sentencing guidelines that led to her long prison term. In recent years, the United States has imprisoned more than two million people while making few preparations for their eventual release. Now these prisoners are coming home in record numbers, as unprepared for "life on the outside" as society is for them. Writing with a passion and an empathy that recall There Are No Children Here and Cold New World, Jennifer Gonnerman calls attention to this mounting national crisis by crafting an intimate family portrait-a story of struggle and survival, guilt and forgiveness, loneliness and love. Life on the Outside is a 2004 National Book Award Finalist for Nonfiction.

Jesusappears to be revealing Himself to Muslims through powerful dreams and visionsthroughout the Islamic world today, and the results are dramatic. Eleven years ago, Pastor Tom Doyle felt God callinghim to leave the pastorate and become a full-time missionary in the Middle Eastand Central Asia. Through his extensive work in the region, which includes over80 trips to places like Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Israel, Lebanon,and Turkey, Tom has met and recorded the stories of former Muslims who werefirst introduced to Jesus through either a dream or a vision that powerfullyopened their hearts to become followers of Christ. Though they live in the mostdangerous places in the world for people who leave Islam and embrace Christ,their passion for the Savior is contagious and inspirational. These are never-before-told stories from the front lines of the world of Islam. Through these unexplained supernatural occurrences, more Muslimshave become believers in the last ten years than in the last 15 centuries ofIslam. Why would God use dreams to reach the Muslim world? Can dreams and visions be trusted? What happens after these people experience a dream or vision? In Dreams and Visions, Tom Doyletakes the reader deep into the heart of the Middle East to meet believers who have been directly touched by the very hand of God.
