BEHIND THE HEDGE A Corruption o Time, Talent & Treasure Tom Whitman, behind the wheel on Route 66 heading east with Allison at his side and their cat Caesar curled up on the backseat, would soon find himself immersed in a maelstrom of unimagined dimension. Newly appointed headmaster of Florence Bruce Seminary, Tom was heading toward an unexpected clash of styles and of cultural expectations. His ingrained instincts for sound management were about to challenge the charismatic but lackadaisical leadership style let behind by the former headmaster. In some respects, the differences would be as great as the clash between Indian and white had been three hundred and fifty years earlier. Violence perpetrated on the school and the community by both bystander and combatant would be traumatic. Rules, laws, agreements, accepted tenets of human behavior, simple decency, contractswritten and unwrittenamong people of accepted good standing and integrity would be thrown away with abandon or gleefully ignored. In their place, frontier justiceany means to achieve the endswould be sufficient justification or actions of intense cruelty. The most basic assumptions regarding safety, fair play, due process and continuity would be destroyed; and those who believed that the operating assumptions at Florence Bruce Seminary were based on decency, dignity and respect would be horrified at the level to which these values were betrayed.

"A novel is a novel way of entering into the world of biblical textual criticism! Fisher's novel about the writing of the Job poem and how its message was largely silenced by locating it within the more ancient story is a likely tale that, in any case, brings to life the world of scholars at David's court. It also shows that modern skepticism is not so modern after all!" --John Cobb, Emeritus Professor, Claremont School of Theology

What is the human mind? What is its template? The mind reveals itself in what it does. Do not to ask what the mind is but ask what it does and be not preoccupied how it does it. A piece of wood with metal attach to one end does not tell us the nature of the hammer. But driving a nail with such a metal/wood object reveals the nature of the hammer. So it is with the mind. Its nature is revealed in what it does. But who is the human mind? Is it your being or your features? Three hundred an fifty stories bring us closer to the answer. The mind is put to work because we are drawn inexorably into the future and always with a degree of uncertainty: sometimes watchful, other times unaware of what will happen next and many times not wanting to know. The purpose of the mind is to know what will happen next.
