The Advent of Peace
Language: en
Pages: 160
Authors: Mary Grey
Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 2011-09-22 - Publisher: SPCK

A major theme in the Gospels is 'peace'; indeed Jesus proclaimed: 'Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you'. Yet when we look at the world, peace can seem an elusive dream. Mary Grey looks at how the Advent story encourages forgiveness and reconciliation, both essential for peace, and how the Gospels can be key tools to help Christians work towards peace. She ties the Advent story in with current situations in the UK and in the Middle East and the book has both a personal and a global outlook. The book will make ideal reading for Advent and Christmas, either on your own or in a group. It is sure to challenge you to ask 'how can I help to make peace a reality for all God's children?'
A Jewish Christmas Story

In the first two chapters of his Gospel Matthew writes about the birth of the Messiah. Did he intend for the narrative just to be used for childrens pagents and to provide ideas for lawn decorations? Surely he had more serious purposes in mind, but sadly this beginning part of his Gospel has been often trivialized down through the centuries. What important information was he conveying? What issues facing his readers did he confront? Could Jesus of Nazareth, a place thought to produce no good thing, really be the Messiah? Hadnt his birth actually been a scandal? Why would wise men bring him gifts? How many wise men were there anyway? And that part about the star; maybe it wasnt actually a star. A Jewish Christmas Story is a study guide which brings new insights to a story with which many are familiar but one whose real meaning is seldom considered seriously.

Looming onto the television landscape in 2011, American Horror Story gave viewers a weekly dose of psychological unease and gruesome violence. Embracing the familiar horror conventions of spooky settings, unnerving manifestations and terrifying monsters, series co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk combine shocking visual effects with an engaging anthology format to provide a modern take on the horror genre. This collection of new essays examines the series’ contribution to television horror, focusing on how the show speaks to social concerns, its use of classic horror tropes and its reinvention of the tale of terror for the 21st century.

It is a pure pleasure for me to be writing again. Fourteen years of being involved in teaching and school administration have claimed most of my hours and focus. My desire to write turned into thoughts of “someday...” or “next year I’m gonna...”. With departure from the business of the classroom, I once again have the freedom to commit myself to putting pen to paper (or I should say, “fingers to keyboard”). William Faulkner wrote, “It is the writer’s privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart.” That is my desire, and I appreciate your allowing me to be a small part of the “heart-lifting” process in your life. Since my last project, I have had several requests to write a sequel, a second prayer devotional. A discussion with my late father ended with a commitment to do so. It is with pleasure that I honor that commitment. Much of what I write is never seen by anyone but the Lord and me, but written words can live on as long as there are readers to see them. Michael Straczynski called it “immortality by proxy.”
The Reception of Charles Dickens in Europe
Language: en
Pages: 608
Authors: Michael Hollington
Categories: Literary Criticism
Type: BOOK - Published: 2013-08-29 - Publisher: A&C Black

The Reception of Charles Dickens in Europe offers a full historical survey of Dickens's reception in all the major European countries and many of the smaller ones, filling a major gap in Dickens scholarship, which has by and large neglected Dickens's fortunes in Europe, and his impact on major European authors and movements. Essays by leading international critics and translators give full attention to cultural changes and fashions, such as the decline of Dickens's fortunes at the end of the nineteenth century in the period of Naturalism and Aestheticism, and the subsequent upswing in the period of Modernism, in part as a consequence of the rise of film in the era of Chaplin and Eisenstein. It will also offer accounts of Dickens's reception in periods of political upheaval and revolution such as during the communist era in Eastern Europe or under fascism in Germany and Italy in particular.
On the Way
Language: en
Pages: 438
Authors: James J. Rawls
Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 2018-05-29 - Publisher: WestBow Press

On the Way is a book of reflections on one man’s journey of faith. Its origins lie in the universal longing of humankind for something beyond ourselves, for something once present that has diminished with the passing of time. This presence now is sensed only fleetingly, yet the longing persists. The title of the book has a double meaning. On the Way refers to the journey of faith, our lifelong pilgrimage from God and to God. But it also points to the one who leads us on this journey, the one who says: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” On the Way is a collection of one hundred devotional readings, reminiscent of Spurgeon’s classic Morning and Evening Daily Readings and the Benedictine Lectio Divina. It is intended to stir within the reader some forward movement in their own journey of faith. What people are saying about On the Way: “James J. Rawls draws on wisdom from across the ages. Here he shares his ongoing conversation with these many voices within the framework of a deep personal and practical faith. This book is a great gift and blessing!” —The Rt. Rev. Barry L. Beisner, VII Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California “This is a wonderful book—beautifully written, insightful, and filled with wisdom and warmth.” —Gil Bailie, founder of The Cornerstone Forum and author of God’s Gamble: The Gravitational Power of Crucified Love (2016) “James Rawls has a capacity for clarity of thought and graceful articulation that the reader will find fully present in these meditations. Savor, consume and digest them. Repeat again and again.” —The Rev. L. Ann Hallisey, D.Min., Professional Coach and Organization Consultant, former Dean of Students, Church Divinity School of the Pacific, Berkeley
Resisting Violence and Victimisation
Language: en
Pages: 244
Authors: Joel Hodge
Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 2016-03-23 - Publisher: Routledge

The reality and nature of religious faith raises difficult questions for the modern world; questions that re-present themselves when faith has grown under the most challenging circumstances. In East Timor widespread Christian faith emerged when suffering and violence were inflicted on the people by the state. This book seeks a deeper understanding of faith and violence, exploring how Christian faith and solidarity affected the hope and resistance of the East Timorese under Indonesian occupation in their response to state-sanctioned violence. Joel Hodge argues for an understanding of Christian faith as a relational phenomenon that provides personal and collective tools to resist violence. Grounded in the work of mimetic theorist René Girard, Hodge contends that the experience of victimisation in East Timor led to an important identification with Jesus Christ as self-giving victim and formed a distinctive communal and ecclesial solidarity. The Catholic Church opened spaces of resistance and communion that allowed the Timorese to imagine and live beyond the violence and death perpetrated by the Indonesian regime. Presenting the East Timorese stories under occupation and Girard's insights in dialogue, this book offers fresh perspectives on the Christian Church's ecclesiology and mission.

Originally known as a brand for greeting cards, Hallmark has seen a surge in popularity since the early 2010s for its made-for-TV movies and television channels: the Hallmark Channel and its spinoffs, Hallmark Movie Channel (now Hallmark Movies & Mysteries) and Hallmark Drama. Hallmark's brand of comforting, often sentimental content includes standalone movies, period and contemporary television series, and mystery film series that center on strong, intuitive female leads. By creating reliable and consistent content, Hallmark offers people a calming retreat from the real world. This collection of new essays strives to fill the void in academic attention surrounding Hallmark. From the plethora of Christmas movies that are released each year to the successful faith-based scripted programming and popular cozy mysteries that air every week, there is a wealth of material to be explored. Specifically, this book explores the network's problematic relationship with race, the dominance of Christianity and heteronormativity, the significance placed on nostalgia, and the hiring and re-hiring of a group of women who thrived as child stars.
