"Walter Brueggemann is the master of finding fresh and compelling dimensions of meaning in texts so familiar they barely scratch the surface of our consciousness. In this exciting collection, Brueggemann finds that when we admit we are dust, we can be liberated. Why? Because we are free from acting like God. We are free to choose obedience to the one living, true Sovereign. The idols lose their grip on us and we live faithfully and in authentic joy." --Ronald J. Allen, Christian Theological Seminary "According to Walter Brueggemann, the autonomy, secularity, and individualism that characterize modernity have 'exiled' the contemporary believer. Always concerned with the manner in which one is to live in the world, he argues for a subversive imagination similar to that found in the biblical wisdom writings, the Psalms, and the Prophets. One comes away from this book both energized by the vision presented and challenged to make it a reality." --Dianne Bergant, Catholic Theological Union in Chicago "There is a reason why Walter Brueggemann remains, for preachers and pastors, the most loved and trusted of all biblical scholars--and that is simply because he writes for us. In every season and heartbreak of life and ministry, he writes for us. And over the years, we have come to see that when Brueggemann goes to the text before God, with his signature passion, candor, and ferocious energy, he goes not for our enlightenment or edification, but for our life and for his. Read this book and take off your shoes, because you will enter onto holy ground." --Anna Carter Florence, Columbia Theological Seminary

When Deputy Tyler Patterson was falsely accused of rape, little did he realize that it was a crooked senator with ties to the mafia that he would have to pursue to clear his name. He had gotten caught up in a tangled web of sex, lies and deceit and now it was up to him to find his way out, or go to prison. His only hope was that Noreen Carpenter, the lawyer that he had been referred to, was as good in the court room as she was sexy and enticing.
Do your children struggle to grasp the daunting and confusing realities of Alzheimer's? Certainly, as an adult, it is overwhelming and at times beyond comprehension to watch a loved one succumb to Alzheimer's. For a child, it produces a myriad of emotions, ranging from bewilderment to sorrow to angst. "My Grandma Can't Remember" was born out of the real life experience of author Carin Billington as her mother, Jean Conway McCarthy, suffered for seven years from Alzheimer's. Unable to find books specifically written for children grappling with Alzheimer's, Carin shares her own children's heartbreaking journey into the world of Alzheimer's. It is written from the viewpoint of a young granddaughter (her children) as she endeavors to understand, as well as accept, her Grandma's new life robbed of her memory. "My Grandma Can't Remember" transcends all ages and touches the essence of the heartache of this disease in a tender and poignant way while helping you and your child grasp the cruelty of Alzheimer's. This insightful sensitive children's book offers extraordinary support and comfort to all who have a loved one suffering from any form of dementia.
Internationally bestselling author Harriet Evans gives readers "the perfect girly read" (Cosmopolitan, UK) in this fun, bittersweet, and irresistibly surprising journey of fresh starts and first loves. Twelve years in bustling London have left Tess Tennant dumped by her boyfriend, out of work, and miserable. Still, maybe taking a new job as a classics professor at the tiny college in her picture-perfect hometown in the English countryside was a bit drastic. Langford’s stone cottages, quaint shops, and lifelong locals feel even smaller than she remembered, but at least Tess has Adam, her best and oldest friend. On a spontaneous birthday adventure back to the city, though, their painful and heartbreaking past forces them into an angry confrontation. Tess escapes to Rome on a class trip and falls unexpectedly into the arms of Peter, a charming American journalist . . . until a tragedy cuts her vacation short. Back home and alone, Tess must slowly unravel her feelings about her secretive best friend, the romantic new lover she barely knows, and the independent woman she really wants to be.
