Bookcover: Light of the World
<br />Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book:
Light of the World: The Pope, The Church, and the Signs of the Times
by Benedict XVI and Peter Seewald


Recommended by: Joseph
This lengthy interview with the Pope is really good, and I'm not Catholic. The translation from the German is a little awkward in places and a basic knowledge of Catholic vocabulary helps, but overall it offers a great insight into the personality and faith of the man who has lead the world's 1.2 billion Catholics. Out of the two books I've read about him (the other being The Rise of Benedict XVI), this one was better.

Bookcover: The Dark is RisingHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper
Recommended by: Becky
"The Dark is Rising" (first published in 1973) is one of my favorite childrens novels. Will Stanton, the youngest of 9 children, learns on his 11th birthday that he is one of the Old Ones  people who have special abilities, can travel through time, and who fight the darkness which is trying to take over the world. This is a beautifully written, remarkable fantasy novel that I enjoy re-reading every winter.

Bookcover: Hell Above Earth
<br />Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book:
Hell above earth : the incredible true story of an American WWII bomber commander and the copilot ordered to kill him
by Stephen Frater


Recommended by: Barbara
Captain Werner Goering was the nephew of Herman Goering who was a leading member of the Nazi Party and the commander in Chief of the Luftwaffe. What many people don't know was that he was a B-17 pilot in the US Air force. He fought in the war and was awarded honors. His co-pilot had orders to kill him if their B-17 was going down over Nazi territory. What was really interesting was that they both were LDS. Herman Goering's brother was converted by LDS missionaries after WWI and moved to SLC to work for the Mormon Church. The co-pilot ordered to kill him was also LDS. They became life long friends. A really interesting unknown story of WWII with a surprise ending!
