From childhood pet ducks to fixing a house foundation, Two Minutes for God features anecdotes from Reverend Panagore's own life as well as those of the people and world around him to illustrate how pieces of the sacred life within everyday events. Encompassing many cultures and a wide variety of religions, Panagore does not exclude anyone from his perspectives on spirituality, prayer, and God's relationship to the world around us. Covering contemporary but timeless topics such as love, loss, healing, work, bullying, mythology, celebration, and family, Two Minutes for God provides a daily infusion of faith that will last all year long.

This self-help-guide-cum-tribute to veterans will appeal to a wide readership (approximately 27 million Americans are veterans), just as so many other entries in Canfield and Hansen's blockbuster series have. Slagter founder of Veteran Stories Inc., "a corporation dedicated to honoring veterans from all wars and all branches of service" and the soul-soothing duo have recruited a strong lineup of contributors, among them Sen. John McCain, Bob Hope, Charles Kuralt (their names are on the cover as contributors), Secretary of State Colin Powell, Sen. Daniel Inouye, and 75 others; and Walter Cronkite checks in with a blurb on the back of the book. Ranging from the terrifying ("I was blind, stunned, in pain, bleeding profusely and very much alone" at the controls of an attack plane over North Korea, recounts Kenneth A. Schechter) to the stoic ("With his eyes nearly swollen shut from the beating, [Mike Christian] had quietly picked up his needle and thread and begun sewing a new [American] flag," recalls McCain of a co-prisoner in North Vietnam) to the deeply moving, the stories relate triumphs of the spirit and often of the body. Some profits will go to the Paralyzed Veterans of America, the Women in Military Service for America Memorial, the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association, and other organizations. Photos. (May)Forecast: With a release in plenty of time for Memorial Day and a near-infallible brand identity, expect a run-up paperback bestseller lists.
