✏Creating Mr Kortan Book Summary : More than a memoir of a custom cafe racer build this book is a tribute to a teacher who inspired young people to be creative with their minds and capable with their hands. Growing up in Fargo, North Dakota in the 1970s and 80s, The Urban Monk had the opportunity to develop a love for machines, metal working and motorcycles. This book provides a glimpse into what life was like for the author and his young friends in Fargo during that time. It is also a poignant defense of industrial arts education in public schools. After an over three year effort building a custom cafe racer in his spare time and documenting the entire process in videos shared with the world on his YouTube channel Urban Monk TV, the author tells the story of how this project became more than a custom motorcycle build - it became a tribute to his middle school Metal Shop teacher who inspired him to go on to a life time of peaceful meditation in his garage with a wrench in his hand. Anyone interested in motorcycles, mechanics, do-it-yourself projects or a historical retrospective of life in 70s-80s Fargo will enjoy this pleasant read.

✏New Religions in Global Perspective Book Summary : Peter B. Clarke’s in-depth account explores the innovative character of new religious movements and new forms of spirituality from a global vantage point. Ranging from North America and Europe to Japan, Latin America, South Asia, Africa and the Caribbean, it is the perfect introduction to NRMs such as Falun Gong, Aum Shirikyo, the Brahma Kumaris, the Ikhwan or Muslim Brotherhood, Sufism, the Engaged Buddhist and Engaged Hindi movements, Messianic Judaism and Rastafarianism. Charting the cultural significance and global impact of NRMs, he discusses the ways in which various religious traditions are shaping, rather than displacing, each other’s understanding of notions such as transcendence and faith, good and evil, of the meaning, purpose and function of religion, and of religious belonging. He then examines the responses of governments, churches, the media and general public to new religious movements, as well as the reaction to older, increasingly influential religions, such as Buddhism and Islam, in new geographical and cultural contexts. Taking into account the degree of continuity between old and new religions, each chapter contains not only an account of the rise of the NRMs and new forms of spirituality in a particular region, but also an overview of change in the regions’ mainstream religions.

✏Unpretty Book Summary : The city of Lehigh, West Virginia, faces the insidious threat of a sadistic cult bent on eliminating all "unpretty" things in the world. A bomb goes off at the Conklin Art Gallery, killing eight people associated with a unique Michelangelo exhibit being shown there. The only person who may have seen the bomber is Hummingbird Collins, an aspiring artist who works down the street from the gallery. But she soon starts receiving ominous cassette recordings of a rambling madman who reveals his plan to rid the world of "unpretty" things. This madman -- known only as Number 26 -- leads a cult known as the Michelangelus Movement, which has kidnapped and tortured people for use in their bizarre artistic experiments over the past dozen years. When Hummingbird breaks her frightened silence, she enlists the help of Detective Buck Barnes, her brother, and an old family friend, Ready Robinson, a former pro-football player who entered the priesthood after ending his NFL career. But when Hummingbird is abducted by the cult, her friends must discover where she's been taken before she becomes another addition to the leader's horrific replication of Michelangelo's masterpiece -- Last Judgment.
