Song for Walking

A collection of poems reprinted in several anthologies.
Includes the following poem:

Museum of Natural History

“The material for this group
was secured
near Eagle Peak, Modoc County,
California.” And here they stand,
hooves nailed firmly to the floor,
white tails motionless,
antlers poised and ready,
living out the long calm days.
Patiently, they scent the deadened wind;
tirelessly, the huge ears lift to catch the rustle
of painted leaves. If now and then
a strange remembrance of living woods
should glitter in some stony marble eye
the visitors do not notice.
They pass in whispers, marveling
how skilled the artist was.

The Third Theory

ISBN: 0967657504 | 978-0967657509

Finally! A dynamic challenge to both Biblical Creation and the “Big Bang.”

The core of The Third Theory is the account of Creation according to the Ancient Wisdom taught in the ancient Mystery Schools. It rebuts Science’s long-cherished premise of the Big Bang and contradicts Religion’s concept that some extra-cosmic Supreme Being called “God” personally created the heavens and the earth. More importantly, being free of Religion’s philosophic absurdities and Science’s philosophic prejudices, The Third Theory has complete religious, scientific and philosophic integrity.

Yo! Joey! by Joseph P. Batory is a collection of colorful career highlights from one of America’s most outspoken school superintendents.

His narration takes turns being funny, irreverent, angry and tender, and is often didactic. It bares the soul of a leader.

The Miracle of EDSA

The Miracle of EDSA

ISBN: 0970051506 | 978-0970051509

The Miracle of EDSA is a story of a mother’s love, a people’s struggle for freedom, and the many Miracles which took place at a time of both near-civil war and religious devotion. When Leigh Jackson, a beautiful Filipina-American nurse, is told by her sister that the child she thought died at birth is still alive, a grown man, she travels back to the Philippines in search of her son.

Her ex-lover, Dan, comes back into her life, and they rekindle a passionate love affair. Miguel, the fierce guerrilla leader, makes Leigh an unwilling part of his small band, where she nurses the sick, but must also fight for her life in hand-to-hand combat. General Navarro, Leigh’s evil antagonist, causes her and countless others to suffer torture in his infamous dungeons. Virgil, Leigh’s heroic young nephew, who believes that prayer can stop tanks, leads the non-violent resistance to the government. Marci and Paulita are courageous women freedom fighters who prove that not only men can risk death in a great cause.

This powerful tale of miracles great and small is based upon real events that took place during the Filipino people’s uprising against tyranny. As Leigh searches for a second chance at motherhood, and a renewal of the deep love she and Dan had once known, she learns to fight, to survive, and most importantly of all, to believe. The result of her quest is a symbol of peace and redemption in the midst of war.

Faithful To His Call

Faithful to His Call

ISBN: 0970264003 | 978-0970264008

Faithful to His Call by Terry Marr is the story of how a young woman, her husband, and her children came to carry out the purpose that God had for them. Terry Marr felt the presence of God from an early age. She knew that the Lord had a plan for her life, and she strove to be alert to His messages and to be ready when He called. There is a void in the life of many people which school, work, material success, even loved ones and friends do not fill. Through this powerful and frank story of her own Call and her Response, the author presents a way to become spiritually fulfilled, for those who are seeking meaning, and for those who may not yet know how empty their lives have become.

Terry Marr’s relationship with God is an intensely personal and dynamic one. In turn, she has ministered to others in the same loving and personal way. As her husband and pastor, L.C. Marr, Jr. says, “This is a book about the birthing of a relationship with God, about visions and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but mostly it’s about recognizing and appreciating the presence of God.” Not all readers will be able to follow exactly in Terry Marr’s footsteps…each person has his or her own unique gifts and contribution to bring to the world. But every reader will find inspiration and hope in her story, and the courage and incentive to find the way to be Faithful to His Call.
