From Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman to sit on the United States Supreme Court, comes this fascinating book about the history and evolution of the highest court in the land. Out of Order sheds light on the centuries of change and upheaval that transformed the Supreme Court from its uncertain beginnings into the remarkable institution that thrives and endures today. From the early days of circuit-riding, when justices who also served as trial judges traveled thousands of miles per year on horseback to hear cases, to the changes in civil rights ushered in by Earl Warren and Thurgood Marshall; from foundational decisions such as Marbury vs. Madison to modern-day cases such as Hamdi vs. Rumsfeld, Justice O’Connor weaves together stories and lessons from the history of the Court, charting turning points and pivotal moments that have helped define our nation’s progress. With unparalleled insight and her unique perspective as a history-making figure, Justice O’Connor takes us on a personal exploration, painting vivid pictures of Justices in history, including Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., one of the greatest jurists of all time; Thurgood Marshall, whose understated and succinct style would come to transform oral argument; William O. Douglas, called “The Lone Ranger” because of his impassioned and frequent dissents; and John Roberts, whom Justice O’Connor considers to be the finest practitioner of oral argument she has ever witnessed in Court. We get a rare glimpse into the Supreme Court’s inner workings: how cases are chosen for hearing; the personal relationships that exist among the Justices; and the customs and traditions, both public and private, that bind one generation of jurists to the next - from the seating arrangements at Court lunches to the fiercely competitive basketball games played in the Court Building’s top-floor gymnasium, the so-called “highest court in the land.” Wise, candi 1.

Born to Betty and George Sumrall of New Orleans on February 15, 1913, Lester Frank Sumrall's cold-hearted brawler father considered him an "accident", telling him bluntly, "You weren't supposed to be here." Reared in the Deep South he showed early in life the resourcefulness and leadership attributes that comprised his remarkable 83-year life and 65-year ministry of the Gospel of Christ. At 16, he contracted tuberculosis in both lungs, and for six months lay in bed, daily waxing worse, until one somber day in the fall of 1930 the doctor informed his parents he would die within hours. That night, Lester saw a vision of an empty, open casket just his size waiting for him on one side of his bed and "the biggest Bible in the world" that stretched from the ceiling to the floor on the other. A voice warned, “You must choose.” He responded, “God, if the only way for me to live is to preach - I’ll preach.” When he awoke the next morning he was perfectly well! Three weeks later, Lester left his parents' home in Panama City, Florida, "with no training, no formal preparation, and no guidance from an older preacher", to begin the preaching ministry that would take him to more than 110 countries and lead him to write more than 130 books and study guides. For sheer entertainment, he was unrivaled, but his spiritual depth was manifest in the myriad miracles and supernatural works God operated through this faith-filled and faithful servant of God. This autobiographical look at his extraordinary life and ministry is by turns funny, poignant, and inspiring, chronicling his hilarious beginnings as a teenage pulpiteer to his final work as director of a massive global food outreach to starving children. Dr. Lester Sumrall went home to be with the Lord on April 28, 1996, having labored tirelessly to the last toward his goal of reaching a million people for Christ and leaving behind a legacy and ministry that continues to reach forward 1.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 'I called this book Out of Order because it reflects my goal, which is to share a different side of the Supreme Court. Most people know the Court only as it exists between bangs of the gavel, when the Court comes to order to hear arguments or give opinions. But the stories of the Court and the Justices that come from the 'out of order' moments add to the richness of the Court as both a branch of our government and a human institution.'-Justice Sandra Day O'Connor From Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman to sit on the United States Supreme Court, comes this fascinating book about the history and evolution of the highest court in the land. Out of Order sheds light on the centuries of change and upheaval that transformed the Supreme Court from its uncertain beginnings into the remarkable institution that thrives and endures today. From the early days of circuit-riding, when justices who also served as trial judges traveled thousands of miles per year on horseback to hear cases, to the changes in civil rights ushered in by Earl Warren and Thurgood Marshall; from foundational decisions such as Marbury v. Madison to modern-day cases such as Hamdi v.

Wise, candid, and assured, Out of Order is a rich offering of inspiring stories of one of our country's most important institutions, from one of our country's most respected pioneers. Praise for Out of Order '[A] succinct, snappy account of how today's court-so powerful, so controversial and so frequently dissected by the media-evolved from such startlingly humble and uncertain beginnings.'-The New York Times 'A brief and accessible history of the nation's highest court, narrated by a true historical figure and a jurisprudential giant.'-The Boston Globe 'A vibrantly personal book [that] displays O'Connor's uncommon common sense, her dry wit and her reverence for the nation's institutions.'-Richmond Times-Dispatch 'Full of riveting anecdotes . . . a compact history . . . albeit a more lighthearted, personality-filled one than you might find in a high school classroom.'-Associated Press
