✏Dead Wake Book Summary : #1 New York Times Bestseller From the bestselling author and master of narrative nonfiction comes the enthralling story of the sinking of the Lusitania On May 1, 1915, with WWI entering its tenth month, a luxury ocean liner as richly appointed as an English country house sailed out of New York, bound for Liverpool, carrying a record number of children and infants. The passengers were surprisingly at ease, even though Germany had declared the seas around Britain to be a war zone. For months, German U-boats had brought terror to the North Atlantic. But the Lusitania was one of the era’s great transatlantic “Greyhounds”—the fastest liner then in service—and her captain, William Thomas Turner, placed tremendous faith in the gentlemanly strictures of warfare that for a century had kept civilian ships safe from attack. Germany, however, was determined to change the rules of the game, and Walther Schwieger, the captain of Unterseeboot-20, was happy to oblige. Meanwhile, an ultra-secret British intelligence unit tracked Schwieger’s U-boat, but told no one. As U-20 and the Lusitania made their way toward Liverpool, an array of forces both grand and achingly small—hubris, a chance fog, a closely guarded secret, and more—all converged to produce one of the great disasters of history. It is a story that many of us think we know but don’t, and Erik Larson tells it thrillingly, switching between hunter and hunted while painting a larger portrait of America at the height of the Progressive Era. Full of glamour and suspense, Dead Wake brings to life a cast of evocative characters, from famed Boston bookseller Charles Lauriat to pioneering female architect Theodate Pope to President Woodrow Wilson, a man lost to grief, dreading the widening war but also captivated by the prospect of new love. Gripping and important, Dead Wake captures the sheer drama and emotional power of a disaster whose intimate details and true meaning have long been obscured by history.

✏Don t Wake The Dead Book Summary : Being curious like little boys are, Jimmy had a hard time sleeping at night because of what lies beyond his backyard in the woods. Jimmy would be even more scared at night when it was storming outside. He would get out of bed, and go over to the window, and be able to get a glimpse of the cemetery because of the lightning. He could see the old wooden fence that was barely standing, that surrounded the crypt, and a few broken tombstones, but felt safe if he left the light on in his room, and the curtain closed. One day when he was playing in his backyard he threw a rock at the crypt and said, "Wake up you bunch of lazy dead people. All you do is sleep all day and night. I wish someone would destroy the cemetery so I wouldn’t have nightmares anymore." Then as he was heading out of the woods he thought he seen a man coming out of the crypt, and could have sworn he heard his name called. Jimmy didn't wait around to see if it was just his imagination playing tricks on him. He ran as fast as he could to tell his parents what he saw. Jimmy's mother and father laughed and his father said, "There's nothing in that cemetery, but some old broken tombstones. If it will make you feel any better, I'll go with you, and check it out, and you'll see you're just imaging things." "Thanks dad," replied Jimmy. Jimmy and his father went back to the cemetery and found nothing, but just as they were heading back to their house the creaky door to the crypt opened, and Jimmy turned his head around, and said, "Look father the door to the crypt is open, by the time his father turned around to look the door shut. Jimmy's father said, "You need to stop this nonsense!" Jimmy said, "I'm sorry, maybe you're right my mind is playing tricks on me."

✏Wake Up Dead Man Book Summary : Making it in Hell, says Bruce Jackson, is the spirit behind the sixty-five work songs gathered in this eloquent dispatch from a brutal era of prison life in the Deep South. Through engagingly documented song arrangements and profiles of their singers, Jackson shows how such pieces as "Hammer Ring," "Ration Blues," "Yellow Gal," and "Jody's Got My Wife and Gone" are like no other folk music forms: they are distinctly African in heritage, diminished in power and meaning outside their prison context, and used exclusively by black convicts. The songs helped workers through the rigors of cane cutting, logging, and cotton picking. Perhaps most important, they helped resolve the men's hopes and longings and allowed them a subtle outlet for grievances they could never voice when face-to-face with their jailers.

✏The Dead Church Book Summary : When the church falls short of being an excellent description of the Body of Christ, there is an urgent need for a reawakening. When the character of the church is no longer consistent with the character of Jesus Christ, the head of the Body of Christ, there is a need to sound the fire alarm. When the church can no longer influence its members and the world in doing what is scripturally right, but good and acceptable, there is an urgent need for a spirit-guided self-examination. When supposed church members are no longer guided or led by the spirit of God but the senses or the world, there is a need for transformation by the renewing of the mind. When church members can no longer tell the difference between the true gospel of Christ Jesus and the secular gospel both preached from the same Holy Bible, there is an urgent need to speak out to save many from the path of damnation. The focus of this work is not so much on those social and business empires branded churches but on the individual whose genuine spiritual state is hinged on a personal relationship with God. Everyone must press in.

✏To Wake the Dead Book Summary : To Wake The Dead is a new take on the raising the dead phenomenon. What happens when people rationally try to investigate the living dead, and to give meaning to their existence? Can such an otherworldly occurrence be justified with the current scientific understanding of living things? How would people, and society, react to raising the dead, especially if it were to become routine, and even done against their wishes? Who would control the use of those who had the ability to raise the dead, and what would they be used to do? If it was our government, could they trusted? Ultimately, who could you trust? To Wake The Dead examines exactly what happens when the borders separating the living from the dead are redrawn, sometimes forcefully, and sometimes violently. No matter what positions the new boundaries occupy, the world will never be the same.
