The new Madden NFL won't be out for a few months but judging from the way Ray Lewis acts on the game's trailer, it's safe to say they've sold at least one. In the minute and a half long trailer, released online this week by EA Sports, Lewis lets loose an impassioned stream of dialogue that's part poetry, part prayer. He doesn't mention the game. But that's kind of beside the point. It opens with soft, somber, piano music -- none of that thumping bass that usually introduces anything selling football.

Ava's Man, by Rick Bragg. Alfred A. Knopf. 259 pages. $25. Rick Bragg has done the impossible. He has brought a dead man back to life. He has written a book that is as good and honest and unforgettable as Charlie Bundrum. Charlie Bundrum was "a tall, bone-thin man who worked with nails in his teeth and a roofing hatchet in a fist as hard as Augusta brick." He was "born into a hateful poverty, fought it all his life and died with nothing except a family that worshipped him and a name that gleams like new money."

ROME -- The pope's official pastor called yesterday for a worldwide day of fasting and penance to seek forgiveness for the sexual abuse by some priests of "the smallest members" of the Roman Catholic Church. Speaking to Pope Benedict XVI and his top associates in a pre-Christmas sermon, the Rev. Raniero Cantalamessa said that the church had paid a high price for "abominations" committed by abusive priests but that deeper atonement was necessary, including a public expression of sorrow and solidarity with victims.

Some preacher's kids come to every service on time wearing their sharpest suit. They fill in for the missing usher and the off-key choir singer and keep the family name spotless. They aren't the ones the neighbors talk about at dinnertime. Those preacher's kids hang out with the street crowd and date guys with names such as Pookie. They're like Tracey, the heroine of the hip-hop and gospel musical, "Preacher's Kid." Written by first-time playwright Sherry Grant of Baltimore, the musical follows Tracey as she veers away - and then returns to - the fold.

The Rev. Paul R. Ball Jr., robed in black and leaning over a light brown wooden lectern, fixed his gaze on his captive congregation. "Let me tell you something: We miss you all out there," he said, gesturing beyond the walls and razor wire of Baltimore's detention center. "Somebody else has to do your job. Somebody else has to pay your mortgage. Somebody else has to raise your child." The men in T-shirts and jeans or yellow or red prison jumpsuits sat on folding chairs in the jail's gymnasium, noisy and restless when the minister arrived, but silent, except for the occasional "Yes!"

EASTON - The Rev. Mike Maloney is accustomed to daily questions of good and evil, sin and punishment, right and wrong. The preacher has never given up his secular duty - first as an assistant state's attorney and now halfway through his third term as Dorchester County's top prosecutor. But on this night, Maloney is surrounded by a 20-member choir and cadre of evangelical ministers, musicians and soloists, all swaying in time to a gospel song as a dozen people, arms raised and palms turned heavenward, come forward to answer his call to be born again and receive a miracle.

GROVER, Colo. -- The sun rises softly on the plains, spreading light evenly across golden wheat fields and the timeless prairie. There are stretches where there is little to see but the land and the sky and, through the eyes of the Rev. Gertrude Horn, the love of God.This is the not the Colorado that most people visualize. From here, the Rockies are but a faded blue wrinkle on the western horizon, visible primarily by the contrast of lingering patches of long-ago snow. The closest city is Cheyenne, Wyo., about 60 miles to the northwest.

The tragedy in Arizona has sparked nationwide soul-searching and calls for more civility from across the political spectrum. Seldom is there an issue on which President Barack Obama, House Speaker John Boehner, The New York Times and Sen. John McCain can agree. At the risk of being deemed insensitive and out of touch with the times, I (respectfully) want to stress the necessity of incivility. While we all rightfully condemn the violence in Tucson, we also should recognize the value that incivility has in a democracy.

To clumsily paraphrase America's great lyricist: "What is this thing called Beck? This funny thing called Beck? Just who can solve his mystery? Why should he make a fool of me?" Those clever words, together with Cole Porter's haunting 1930 tune, keep running through my mind as I contemplate the bizarre rally of commentator/celebrity/preacher Glenn Beck at the Lincoln Memorial the other day. Beyond the argument over how many people flocked around the reflecting pool and beyond for the event — from 87,000, as guesstimated from an aerial photo, to half a million or more by Beck enthusiasts — what was the Saturday rally all about?

In a cool bit of timing, "Thurgood," George Stevens Jr.'s vivid one-actor play about the first African American Supreme Court justice, is in Washington as senators are pondering the nomination of Thurgood Marshall's former law clerk, Elena Kagan, for a seat on the highest bench in the land. Add in all the talk onstage about interpreting the 14th Amendment and other civil rights cases, and the show exudes a remarkably contemporary feel (Rand Paul might pick up some useful perspectives from it)

A Delaware man who was high on crack cocaine when he beat to death a retired Wicomico County preacher with a chair was sentenced yesterday to life in prison. Antonio E. Herneisen, 41, of Dagsboro pleaded guilty in May to first-degree murder for the March 30, 2007, killing of the Rev. Van Crawford, 76, of Delmar, near the Delaware border. Prosecutors initially sought the death penalty, which prompted a change of venue to Anne Arundel County, where Judge Ronald A. Silkworth sentenced Herneisen.

The Rev. Alvin C. Hathaway Sr. considers the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. to be a tremendous pastor and a brilliant theologian. But sitting in the audience of the National Press Club in Washington this week, Hathaway found himself wincing at some of the remarks by Sen. Barack Obama's embattled former pastor. "When Jeremiah Wright says an attack on him is `an attack on the black church,' that's kind of stretching things," said Hathaway, pastor of Baltimore's Union Baptist Church. "I think it's potentially dangerous."

CHICAGO-- --The packed house at Trinity United - some 3,000 in all - had been in the pews for almost two hours, energized by a 200-voice choir and a rousing dance performance Sunday, when the Rev. Jeremiah Wright stepped up to speak. Wright is well-known in Chicago and in the black church world for taking over a small United Church of Christ congregation in 1972 and turning it into an 8,000-member powerhouse. More recently, his name has become familiar as the longtime spiritual mentor of Barack Obama, who joined the church in 1988 - a move Obama says was important to shaping his identity as an African-American.

The Rev. Jerry Falwell's prosaic death in his Liberty University office - just another body, unresponsive and pulseless, on a random floor - has elevated speaking ill of the dead to the level of sacrament. The founder of the Moral Majority may have been a man of God to his 6.5 million followers, but to others he was a charlatan, a huckster and a dangerous fool. Atheist provocateur Christopher Hitchens, Mr. Falwell's most eloquent critic, described the reverend as an evil old man who fed lies to children and who interfered with the Middle East peace process by encouraging fanatics in Gaza.
