After Young David Hobbs leaves his Midwestern hometown for college, he spends eight summers fighting wildfires for the U.S. Forest Service. He finds, as his life begins to go up in flames, a powerful and spiritual awakening. Along with a personal philosophy of "get-it-while-you-can," David's goals in life were all too familiar: fame, fortune and true love. Out of the Fire follows the events, from the ranks of an elite fire crew on the Klamath National Forest, to a "summer of love" in Berkeley, California, as they lead him, eventually, to call upon the God he once rejected.
One night I was dead asleep about two in the morning when a boot hit the
outside step of the trailer, the door flew open, and Zack's voice boomed out, "
Wilbur, let's roll, we've got a fire! You too Hobbs, let's go!" Instantly I went from a

Getting upset, developing a vengeful attitude, committing violent acts, thinking negative thoughts, becoming argumentative, raising your voice, using sharp words or cursing, as well as holding things in and refusing to let them go, are all symptoms of not controlling your anger. What's more, the longer you ignore your anger and fail to deal with it, the worse it will become. David tells us in Psalm 37:8 "Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret.it leads only to evil." With these words he is warning you and me to put out the fire of our anger before it consumes us. This book is a tool I am convinced will help you deal with your anger, but more importantly, it will encourage you to grow in your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and your relationship with your family and others.

During World War II, as the United States called on its citizens to serve in unprecedented numbers, the presence of gay Americans in the armed forces increasingly conflicted with the expanding antihomosexual policies and procedures of the military. In Coming Out Under Fire, Allan Berube examines in depth and detail these social and political confrontation--not as a story of how the military victimized homosexuals, but as a story of how a dynamic power relationship developed between gay citizens and their government, transforming them both. Drawing on GIs' wartime letters, extensive interviews with gay veterans, and declassified military documents, Berube thoughtfully constructs a startling history of the two wars gay military men and women fough--one for America and another as homosexuals within the military. Berube's book, the inspiration for the 1995 Peabody Award-winning documentary film of the same name, has become a classic since it was published in 1990, just three years prior to the controversial "don't ask, don't tell" policy, which has continued to serve as an uneasy compromise between gays and the military. With a new foreword by historians John D'Emilio and Estelle B. Freedman, this book remains a valuable contribution to the history of World War II, as well as to the ongoing debate regarding the role of gays in the U.S. military.
