A rollicking satire evoking P.G. Wodehouse, Barbara Pym, and Kingsley Amis, Stations of the Crossed Heart (Christie & Brown, $24.95) combines comedy of manners, mystery, romance, and social commentary in an original literary structure. It is a fictional account of the relationship between two unlikely mates—an economics major and a Catholic priest—and the ways in which the two opposites reconcile forms the basis for this celebration of the redemptive powers of love and self-forgiveness.

In The Left Hand of God (HarperCollins, $24.95), MICHAEL LERNER argues that the religious right has channeled the real spiritual hunger of many Americans into an irresponsible political agenda. In response he critiques both the religious right and the spiritual and religious hostility in parts of the liberal and progressive cultures, and he calls for a new "bottom line" to offset the globalization of selfishness and materialism generated by corporate capital.

How does humanity solve the horrendous problems of terrorism, war, and gross violations of human rights? According to BRIAN LEPARD—international human-rights law specialist—the answer can be found in the commonly shared ethical principles of the world's great religions. In Hope for a Global Ethic (Baha'i, $14.00), he offers an affirming, refreshing, and pragmatic alternative to politically-charged rhetoric, cynical views of the human condition, and the misuse of religion as an instrument for violence.

This alternate history novel marks a major, but logical, departure for Pulitzer Prize-winning author, PHILIP ROTH. In The Plot Against America (Random House, $14.95), isolationist Charles A. Lindbergh defeats incumbent Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1940 presidential election. The victory generates successive waves of anti-Semitism, culminating in nationwide pogroms. From Newark, New Jersey, Roth's recurring character Philip and his Jewish family struggle to chisel out a safe place in this maelstrom of hatred.
