From the hills of West Virginia to the ghettos of New York City, two teachers-one an older Caucasian and the other a younger African-American-somehow find each other in the halls of a middle school in Hampton, VA. Becoming the best of friends, they join together to educate their eighth-grade students in curriculum and life. God instills in each of them the desire to make a difference where they are, for the future. "One God Two Voices: Life-Changing Lessons from the Classroom on the Issues Challenging Today's Families" comes from their hearts as they speak to teachers, parents, students, and the world at-large on diverse topics, such as the racial divide (from the O.J. Simpson trial and teaching Allen Iverson to the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown situations of today), repeating history, "acting white," and the reality of being a teacher while maintaining your integrity, sanity, and sense of humor. From One God Two Voices: "I can still remember the first time I ever experienced the loss of a student. One Friday he was there; by Monday, he was gone. He had sung the Boyz II Men version of 'It's So Hard to Say Good-bye to Yesterday' in the eighth-grade talent show. How ironic his choice of music had been. It was almost as if this song had prophesied his untimely end from a gunshot wound. That endless week of talking, counseling students, crying with them, and finally speaking at his funeral was one I will never forget." "One God Two Voices" shares unique and personal stories from the two teachers' team and individual teaching experiences, weaving cultural differences, racial harmony, societal issues, and Christianity in this updated version of their 2004 publication of For Such A Time As This . . . We Are But Small Voices.
