Book description…

Small Town Police Department Meets Big City Crime. Rocco DeMarco, a young police officer on a suburban “Bedroom Community” police department, north of New York City, is placed in a position of Baptism by Fire. Just days after being assigned as a patrolman to the detective division, DeMarco, along with his lieutenant, are summoned to two bodies, found in trash bags and dumped across the street from the local high school. The subsequent investigation presents many new and sometimes dangerous undertakings. During the course of the investigation, Rocco sometimes lets his enthusiasm cloud his awareness of the dangers he will be facing. DeMarco and the other Investigators have to deal with witnesses, who are of the impression that a small ‘upstate’ police agency can’t handle an investigation of this magnitude. Dogged investigating leads to the identification of three primary suspects. The case takes on a whole new level of risk when DeMarco realizes he would be dealing with a very dangerous, former enforcer from Castro’s Cuba who came to the U.S. on the Muriel Boat Lift in the 1980’s. An undercover arrest of an additional suspect, with the prospect of him facing serious jail time, results in the young man and his father, agreeing to be witnesses against the three key participants, one of whom is the homicidal Cuban. The nature of policing that Rocco DeMarco was looking for came to fruition when his lieutenant turns to him at the site of the two dumped bodies and says, “It’s Your Case Kid.”

Common Sense for Teachers and Parents. This book is not written for the elite and sophisticated educator; rather it is just a book for parents and teachers to promote the common sense approach to education. Good common sense can be described as the knack for seeing things as they are, and doing things as they ought to be done. Teachers may be smart, dedicated and well educated with the latest progressive methodology, but still fall short in helping children learn. The old school of learning had its faults, yet there were some basic healthy grains among the shaft-grains discarded by elitists. Educators and parents should take another look at education in our schools today. As a Christian, the author finds much wisdom and common sense in the Bible for teaching children. Even non-Christians might find merit in some of those passages that are still timeless: “He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning” (Daniel 2:21 NIV).

Book description…

This book is for a wide readership that will be introduced to: A personal account of a Holocaust survivor; A Jewish artist’s portrait of Christ; An invitation to Judeo-Christian dialogue; An example of a faith-based community welcoming and sheltering refugees facing death; A stirring call to exemplify love at the highest level, that risks one’s life for others as a religious duty. “Martha Kriebel’s book brings to light a series of important but forgotten paintings that began a modernist/realist trend in Sunday School curriculum. The original paintings were used by the Evangelical and Reformed Church to create a filmstrip and published curriculum presenting more realistic images of the life and ministry of Jesus. Kriebel reintroduces not only Barosin’s paintings but also presents an important part of the history of church school curriculum. – The Rev. Richard Berg, Archivist Emeritus, Evangelical and Reformed Historical Society at Lancaster Seminary, PA. “Both Christians and Jews owe Dr. Martha Kriebel a debt of gratitude for preserving the memory and the art of Jacques Barosin. This Jewish artist survived the Holocaust due to the heroism of a French Christian and then produced a wonderful portfolio of watercolors depicting the life of Jesus. Pastor Kriebel’s annotated collection of Barosin’s oeuvre is a valuable contribution both to the history of art and to Christian-Jewish relations.” – Judith Blumberg Maslin, M.A., Director Emerita of the Temple Judea Museum of Keneseth Israel. “Jacob Barosin was a man of many talents with one of those complicated 20th century life stories that took him from Russia to Germany to France and finally to the United States. Pastor Kriebel has given voice and exposure to one of Barosin’s professional traits, showing for the first time to a general audience his craft and dedication, in this case his art applied to a central Christian theme. It can be hoped that curiosity in Barosin’s work will broaden interest in his work.” – Dr. Frank Mecklenburg, Director of Research and Chief Archivist, Leo Baeck Institute, New York/Berlin
