Five Amazing Book by Uriah J. Fields!

My New Book is now Available!

THE FIELDS SCHOOL: An African American School Without Failures Located in Rural Alabama (5.5" x 8.5", ISBN 9781449009385, 84 pp. Pub. August 2009.
In a time when schools are failing our children, especially African Americans, could it be that taking a careful look at schools, including schools attended solely by African Americans that were effective in the past, provide insight into why schools are failing today and empower the eductional system to operate schools without failures?
One such school, worthy of examination , is the Fields School  a school in Rural Alabama without failures - which served African American children from 1933-1949. Over three-quarters of the sample subjects attending this school had completed a bachelor's degree. Of these, over half,  had completed some graduate work, one-third had master'sdegree, one a doctoral degree and one a law degree.
The Fields School has been meticulously researched. The researcher noted that The Fields family and school appear to have inculcated in its members both a strong sense of autonomy and self-definition, which propelled them to achieve measurable successes in their educational occupational, and life pursuits. All of them seem to have avoided the pitfall of  "logofixion", or becoming damaged by the expectations and words of the larger society that tend to cast minority group members in stereotypical roles of society's victims or society's romanticized noble ones. ..They were and are able to live in two worlds, with a minimum of conflict, and gained cultural competence in a black and white world, in the community of their origin and the society at large.
A "must read!"

THE SAINT TROUBADOUR," (6" X 9" ISBN 1-4241-8358-8, 413 PP; Pub. October, 2007.
This collection of meditations, essays, prose poems, lyrics and commentaries, gathered by the author of his writings extending over a half century, forms a manifesto that smmarizes his lifework. In the role of a troubadour with a philosopher's heart, he shares how, infusing the activities of life with reverence, compassion and trust makes them come alive with meaning and purpose.

Fields illustrates how the emerging values and efficacy of the spirit empower individuals strengthen relationships, and change people from being ill-natured into peacemakers and vain philosophy into spiritual philosophy that transforms everyday lives. This book tells the story of the author's own personal evolution and transformation that took a leap of faith when he was a leader of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. He declares that during the last three decades while traveling the path of the Mutuality Warrior, his journey and life have been sweet despite obstacles and challenges faced along the way.

"The Saint Troubadour espouses a way of being that promotes optimum health, individual and social actualization, and the practice of communtiy.

GRANDPA BENJAMIN," (5.5" x 8.5," ISBN 1-4241-2285-6, 161 pp; Published April, 2006).
This is a novel in the guise of the recollections of a grandpa, born into slavery, narrated to his grandson that reveals the lived history of his ancestors as told to him by his mother dating back to 1776 when two of his grandparents were kidnapped in Africa and enslaved in America. This is also the story about how Grandpa and his half brother, also born into slavery, established the Zeals Community and the Zeals School in a hamlet in the South, where they were born and lived all the years of their lives and where for several generations many of their descendatns were nurtured. The legacy of these brothers continues to inspire their descendants to live productive and dignity-affirmed lives. In "Grandpa Benjamin" Uriah J. Fields has created a legendary figure, a man equipped to stand beside William Faulkner's Dilsey in "The Sound and the Fury." Grandpa Benjamin, like Dilsey has 'endured,' has seen almost everything and foretold the rest. For eighty-eight years this saintly patriarch lived a life that is enviable even in contemporary perspective. This book is part autobiographical and many parts hard-won and commonsensibly wisdom.

"GOD WITH US," (5.5" X 8.5", ISBN 1-4137-2800-6, 131 pages - paperback).
This book can make an extraordinary difference in the way a person perceives God, one another, oneself and the world. Here is a guide for anyone who desires to have a meaningful relationship with God and experience His Fatherly love. The unique role of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ in God-man reconciliation and the ministry of the Holy Spirit to the individual are discussed simply and with clarity. Also presented is a day-by-day autobiographical account of the author's experience of living in the presence of God and the attendant near-perpetual joy that he derives from it. The author declares that, "Anyone can experiene the presence of God, not just intermittently or occasionally, but continuously, no less than he experiences breathing."


How are we to live our lives reasonably safe from destructiveness without withdrawing or hiding to avoid things we fear and apparent danger? Mutuality practitioner Uriah J. Fields now points the way toward confronting and managing destructiveness while simultaneously extending caring in this compellig book. "The Mutuality Warrior" establishes beyond any doubt the need for people to become Mutuality warriors and shows why we, as a society, cannot afford not to. This book is an expose' of the preparation of the Mutuality Warrior and tarvelogue of his journey.

An Excerpt from "The Mutuality Warror."
"Decadency, feelings of hoplessness, disease, polllution, poverty and corruption are present nearly everywhere. People are despairing and the garden once beautiful and nourishing is wow barren. It is more like a cesspool than a river. There is so much to be done before the garden, our embattled and life-sucking world, may bloom again and dispense fragrances that will remove the bitterness we taste and  keep us from becomig the moden dinossaurs of planet earth. We are the gardeners and the seeds which together have the power to bring forth a rich harvest, including our healing. Let us tend this life and our living with care that the harvest might be beautiful. Remember, it is in your hands, Mutuality Warrior. Unless you tend the garden there will be no harvest desirable for humans, no rejoicing, no victory over defeat and, just maybe, the end of hope."  (p. 52).

The author was the originial secretary of the Montgomery Improvement Association that directed the Montgomery Bus Boycott. He declares that only an insider who felt the pulse and shared the collective agony of those boycotting buses in Montgomery can give an eye-witness account of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. In this book the author gives that account. The 382-day long bus boycott led to the Supreme Court's decision outlawing segregation on Montgomery buses and the return of African-Americans to riding buses in Montgomery on a desegregated basis. The Montgomery Bus Boycott contributed to the passage of the civil rights legislation by the Congress that granted African-Americans the right to vote, equal employment opportunities and access to open housing. The author was there, in Montgomery. Read his first-hand account for the full and true story of the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

A Special Review
This is a good book for persons who want additional information about what really happened in Montgomery over 50 years ago. It may seem as though there might be enough books written about the Montgomery Bus Boycortt, however, the author of this book was intimately involved in the beginning as he served as the first secretary of the Montgomery Improvemnt Association (MIA). Uriah J. Fields begins his book in a way that others have not, by giving accolades to Edgar D. Nixon as the person who truly moved the efforts of the boycott forward and served to keep the organization together and focused on its initial mission. In addition, Mr. Fields states that it was E. D. Nixon who encouraged Dr. King to stay the course when Dr. King seemed most discouraged with the antics of th day. Of course there were others such as Rev. Ralph David Abernathy, Rev. A. W. Wilson and fourteen others who helped to organize and invigorate the Montgomery Improvement Association.

Uriah J. Fields was pastor of Bell Steet Baptist Church, one of the bombed churches, during the boycott. Rev. Fields validates, as well, two other titles written prior to this book, "Bearing the Cross" by David Garrow and "The Papers of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Vol III", as titles which, in his opinion, come closer to telling the truth of what happened over 50 years ago in Montgomery, Alabama. He writes that "only an insider who felt the pulse and shared the collective agony of those boycotting buses in Montgomery can give an eye-witness account of the Montgomery Bus Boycott". "Inside the Montgomery Bus Boycott -- My Personal Story" is that account. As the citizens of Montgomery close out the observance of the 50th anniversary of 382 days of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, I find this tome a must read. I totally enjoyed this book and feel that my life has been enriched by it (or at least I know a little more about that time).

Additional Information


Yearning to be one with God,
Fallen from grace, yet in need of grace;
Lost, restless, heart-broken,
Pleading daily for the Master's touch,
Praying in hope while he sings the song - "God is our refuge;"
This is man.
