In this rare collection of nonfiction Christian poetry and prose based on real life experiences, Diamante Lavendar, a victim of abuse, shows the reader the raw emotions of pain, hate, and denial that occur before a victim of abuse can find a way to heal from the pains of assault. Knowing herself the very difficult journey of being a victim, Diamante was abused as a child, and turned to alcohol and drugs to numb the pain. Many years later, she started to heal under God's watchful eyes and was able to find love in her life again. She shares these truly inspiring, religious poems in the hopes that it may help other victims heal their hurts, as she did while writing the poetry collection.

As I Crossed a Bridge of Dreams Penguin Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"As I Crossed a Bridge of Dreams" is a unique autobiography in which the anonymous writer known as Lady Sarashina intersperses personal reflections, anecdotes and lyrical poems with accounts of her travels and evocative descriptions of the Japanese countryside. Born in AD 1008, Lady Sarashina felt an acute sense of melancholy that led her to withdraw into the more congenial realm of the imagination - this deeply introspective work presents her vision of the world. While barely alluding to certain aspects of her life such as marriage, she illuminates her pilgrimages to temples and mystical dreams in exquisite prose, describing a profound emotional journey that can be read as a metaphor for life itself.

Life Sentences: Short Stories WIPF & STOCK PUBL

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Description: Whether from established authors or by writers new to fiction, the short stories in this volume explore life as change, using Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 as the lens. The writers come from different backgrounds, perspectives, and levels of familiarity with the short story, but what ties them together is a willingness to creatively explore the raw and more uncomfortable dimensions of life--big events and small happenings--all bound up by a recognition of the inevitability and (dis)comfort of change. Each writer has a story to tell, a creative and imaginative angle on life as it happens somewhere to someone. Life Sentences represents an experiment, a recognition of and confrontation with the depth of culture and culture's life maps, with the ways in which the joys and troubles of life are given meaning. This collection attempts to address these large (and small) challenges and dynamics of life without the jargon of the professional philosopher or theologian but with the more ""earthy"" language of popular culture: the short story. Endorsements: ""An enjoyable, thought-provoking read. Life Sentences is a glimpse into varied perspectives of existence through stories told by an assorted group of writers who are as diverse as the human experience; reminding us that as we search for its meaning, there is no one way to define life; for life is a journey unique to every individual."" --Tajuana ""T J"" Butler, author of Hand-me-down Heartache (Villard, 2003) and Sorority Sisters (One World/Ballentine, 2007) ""This is an ambitious collection of stories; sharp, powerful stories as experienced and imagined by keen eyes and open hearts. They chart the many disappointments and moments of choice that occur in life. There is stellar writing here . . . moments of great and powerful prose. The diversity of voice and experience rings loudly and at once seduces. These are situations and circumstances that feel familiar. Readers will see themselves in these pages and they will feel the joy and trepidation that swirl between the covers of this book. These are stories that flow from life as it is lived. At the end of each story, I found myself reflecting on the issues and emotions I'd experienced and at the same time I I'd begin anticipating the journey that awaited me in the next. And by the time I finished 'Jack and Jill' by Colleton I was saddened by the fact that I had come to the end. ""This collection is well conceived and excellently well-rendered, a gem for readers who love life and seek the details of its many mysteries."" --Alexs Pate, University of Minnesota, author of the New York Times Best Seller Amistad: The Novel (Signet, 1997) About the Contributor(s): Anthony B.

Issues and Fragments Resource Publications

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

There are many subjects that appear in this book: Philosophy, Art, Fiction, Poetry, God. They are each approached through language that fits their content--language that itself shares characteristics of the subject it addresses. There are thus as many languages as there are subjects--exhibiting different forms of ""being about"" their subjects. Such forms are variously called ""analysis,"" or ""exegesis,"" or ""criticism,"" or ""speculation,"" or ""invention,"" or ""memories and dreams."" Issues become fragmented at the edges--the limits--of their language. Fragments, in turn, seek the shape--the boundaries--of their content. The forms of ""aboutness"" are as varied, and numerous, as are their subjects. There is no exhaustive listing. There is one subject this book is most concerned with. It underlies the others and questions the value--the possibilities--of mutual reciprocation. This, too, has many forms: ""What can or cannot be said."" ""Where are boundaries firm and where porous."" ""What is gained and what lost through interaction between subject-contents."" ""The many problems of synthesis."" ""What the difference is between 'Actual' and 'Real' in theories of life."" ""Contrasts between the nature--and the varying descriptions--of God and after-life."" The contention here is that all given descriptions are partial, and that in these partialities and their similarities, ways can found to construct--however slowly and painfully--the larger subject-nature of living and dying. ""'Evil is the other to everything that should be.' In Proustian-like prose, Krukowski considers the age-old question of good and evil, weaving together canonical philosophy with knowledge accumulated in person over the course of a well-lived life. His thoughts, both universal and intimate, are at one and the same time profound and extremely humorous as when he lists 'Qualities of people I hate,' then describes those qualities in verse before baking them into a delicious delicacy. This book won't renovate your life, but it will encourage you to value each fragment of it."" --Daniel Naegele, Editor, The Letters of Colin Rowe Lucian Krukowski is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Washington University in Saint Louis. He is the author of This Place of Prose and Poetry (2015), Before the Beginning, During the Middle, After the End (2014), Ripe Musings (2011), Aesthetic Legacies (1992), and Art and Concept (1987).

It's Never Too Late to Grow Up Plain View Press, LLC

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Cele Keeper's memoir, It's Never Too Late to Grow Up, an unflinchingly honest and irreverent history of a life well lived, is an enthralling read. Ms. Keeper never extinguishes the bright light of her candor. From the death of a beloved child to the vicissitudes of aging, she is never an object of pity. Rather, to borrow from the hilariously unforgettable quote of Meg Ryan's eavesdropping neighbor in When Harry Met Sally, "I've like to have what she's having!" Elizabeth B. Knight, LCSW, CGP, Immediate Past President, American Group Psychotherapy Association Take a very intimate journey with Cele through a landscape of relationships and a lifetime of personal development. Her observations tickle and touch, her frank and playful words evoke discoveries made in moments small and large, and love in its many guises is always close at hand. She dares to convey important lessons learned over time in psychotherapy, the ones that open us to the other side of our stories about self and others and that ultimately free us to experience life with greater clarity and tolerance. This is an inspiring, thought-provoking and certainly entertaining memoir. David Hawkins, MD, Psychiatrist in Private Practice It's Never Too Late To Grow Up is a wonderful journey into the human experience through the eyes and wit of an extraordinary person. Short stories ranging from an orangutan at the zoo hurling a "large wad of tobacco spittle" on her mother's fur coat to wonderful verses (my favorite: This is It, an ode about Cele's power struggle with her two cats!) create honest moments for self-introspection. You will close this book with a smile and I fully suspect you will learn something about yourself and your own life's journey. Ira C. Colby, Professor and Dean, Graduate College of Social Work, University of Houston In this exceptional account, growing up is a fluid and unending process. Keeper's tale of her journey from being tied to Mother's Message Board to becoming an elderly butterfly is vividly and briskly told. In poetry and prose, she recounts a lifetime of love, loss and renewal. Her's is a wise, sad, funny, outspoken and bluntly honest memoir. From personal stories, she draws general truths about human development over a lifetime. Keeper proves beyond any reasonable doubt that it is never too late to grow up. Gary A. Lloyd Ph.D, Professor Emeritus, Tulane University (Social Work)

Destination Bethlehem Wipf & Stock Publishers

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book is intended as a devotional guide for the Advent season. Through the mediums of meditations, poetry, and prayer, it offers a spiritual resource for readers seeking to explore the many dimensions of this beloved season, and to deepen their appreciation of its mystery and wonder. Each day the reader is provided with either a prose meditation, based in Scripture, or a selection of poems, composed around the traditional themes of Advent/Christmas. The overall effect is that of a journey--a journey which moves, devotionally, through the days and weeks of December, toward Bethlehem, the stable, and the manger. Images, incidents, impressions, and items from the daily news are woven together to form a rich and rewarding tapestry, a pathway leading onward, an open door into the quiet places of the soul. Christmas Eve and Day are given special treatment, followed by a final section covering New Year's Day and the twelve days of Christmas. The book also provides a source of creative imagery and language for clergy, and other worship leaders, as they face the challenges of speaking traditional truths in a new and inviting way. Yet another use would be as a small group study guide for Advent. ""We couldn't have a better guide to light the way to Bethlehem than Shepherd. . . . Even if you've made dozens of trips through Advent-Christmas, Barrie will enable you to walk toward the Incarnation again as if for the first time."" --Will Willimon, United Methodist Bishop (retired), Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry, Duke University ""This book is a treasure. . . . Shepherd's poems and meditations will be a valuable resource for preachers searching for creative ways to tell a beloved story everyone knows, and a gift to all of us who look forward to Advent and Christmas every year."" --John M. Buchanan, Editor/Publisher, The Christian Century ""J. Barrie Shepherd obviously learned long ago to take words seriously. Like all poets, his economy in the use of them reveals his respect for their extraordinary power. As he shows us here they can ever so gently lead us to the Word made flesh. This book will remain as one of my cherished pastoral guides for the annual calling of inviting others to discover the quiet miracles in Advent."" --M. Craig Barnes, President, Princeton Theological Seminary ""Whether in a sermon, poem, or prayer, Shepherd's rich imagery is arresting. Like the Advent season itself, Shepherd's words wake us up, slow us down, and invite us to anticipate with joy the coming of Emmanuel."" --Jill Duffield, Editor of The Presbyterian Outlook ""I am so grateful for this Advent book. In these meditations he leads us into the wonder of waiting, which we so often resist, not realizing the riches therein. With engaging narrative and vivid poetry Shepherd evokes essential Advent moments for reflection. Destination Bethlehem promises to open new perspectives on this Christian season for anyone who opens these pages."" --Jeannie Crawford-Lee, Editor, Weavings: A Journal of the Christian Spiritual Life J. Barrie Shepherd, Minister Emeritus of The First Presbyterian Church in the City of New York, has preached and lectured extensively across the USA and Canada, the UK, Europe, and Africa. He was named William Belden Noble lecturer at Harvard in 1995, and Lyman Beecher lecturer at Yale in 2002. Author of fifteen books, including the recent Between Mirage and Miracle, Shepherd's poetry appears frequently in such magazines as Weavings, Christian Century, and The New Republic.

Breast cancer can interrupt a life and demand that we pay more attention to the way we live. In this lyrical and inviting account, Patricia Greer explores associations and images that surround her experience of the disease. A Jungian analyst, she works with metaphors and meanings related to the illness and uses her dreams, inner journeys, and poetry to deepen into and under the reality of cancer. She shares her exploration with the hope that it may help others reflect on their experiences and find insights from understanding cancer as a source of wisdom. For all those who have been touched by the disease and for those who love them, care about them, care for them, breast cancer can be a soul journey. "Women diagnosed with breast cancer often describe the experience as having many layers-physical, emotional, psychological, relational, social, spiritual, and even financial. Considering the experience as a journey of the soul is an opportunity to move beyond the effects of breast cancer and into a more expansive, meaning-making exploration. Patricia's story is a generous gift to all who have experienced breast cancer and felt drawn to a deeper understanding of the point where one's essence and illness intersect. This is definitely a trip you'll be glad you took." -Jeannie Cella, MS, LCPC, executive director of Wellness House "With compassion and intelligence, Patricia Greer offers a readable and generous personal exploration of the potential meanings of breast cancer. Embracing the symbolic attitude of Jungian methods, which activate and engage unconscious layers of psyche, she focuses on cancer as teacher, a metaphoric guide to deeper self-awareness and self-knowledge. This soulful meditation on the healing power of image is a rich, sensitive contribution full of embodied wisdom, evocative language, and transcendent depth. An inspirational book for therapists, patients, and for all women and their families and friends whose lives have been touched by cancer and illness." -Judith Cooper, PsyD, clinical psychologist and Jungian analyst "Patricia Greer creates a profound pathway for those with cancer and their loved ones. She intimately shares the sacred healing capacity of dream and image that she personally experienced during her long journey with cancer. Her image of the single redbud tree resonated for me long after I put the book down. Joining Patricia on her underworld journey with cancer, I too was immersed in a deep experience of navigating the darkest nights of the soul. I am deeply touched by Patricia's work and feel her offering is tending the soul in and of the world." -Stephen Aizenstat, PhD, chancellor and founding president, Pacifica Graduate Institute Patricia Greer, MA, PhD, is a psychotherapist and Jungian analyst who has been seeing clients for more than thirty years. She has used her experience of breast cancer to deepen her ability to accompany her clients on their journeys of individuation and is especially interested in helping women identify and speak in their authentic voices and attend to and honor the wisdom of soul.

"The Never Enders is a sledgehammer to the psyche...an exhilarating journey filled with sex, violence, and startling desperation." -Daniel Alleva, Charged by the System "The Never Enders is beautiful and haunting at the same time," -Bethany Andrews, "book.of.the.moment" "Raw and enticing...crass and crude...the story is like a loud song that doesn't seem to die down," Helen Valencia, "Knight News" Life is dark for Perry Patton, disaffected youth and angry artist, and escape is the name of his game. With his life savings in his pocket, he leaves the home he hates and heads to a city he's ready to despise. But his escape doesn't stop there. Giving himself one week, he's ready to live fast and die soon. But that one week in the urban jungle gives him more than he bargained for. Life becomes a non-stop rollercoaster when Perry falls in with a group of hard-partying misfits who take his own attitude on life and multiply it by drugs, booze, and violence. Perry is soon swept up in the wild ride of these Never Enders, but not without consequence. The realities of a lifestyle outside the law set in and Perry finds himself with no one to trust and everything to lose. The Never Enders is gritty, dark, and deep-Catcher in the Rye meets Fight Club for a new generation. Enter a world of self-destruction, vigilantism, and the worst of urban life. Once you enter, there's only one escape. Michael Sonbert is a New York born novelist, whose dark expeditions into the world of sex, drugs, and violence, are at once shockingly real and fantastic. His original brand of hip, character-driven literary fiction focuses on the things we do to ourselves when we hate ourselves, and what it means to be young, addicted, and unloved. Sonbert's literature is born not out of lectures and writing classes. His is more the visceral, instinctual work that reminds one of early Charles Bukowski and Jack Kerouac. As he bleeds his beautifully violent brand of poetic prose onto the page, he creates riveting characters that traverse gripping plotlines that are equal parts lovely, disturbing, psychedelic and pulse pounding. As a member of The Biggs, a New York writer's collective, Michael presents his work regularly at venues such as Bowery Poetry Club, KGB Bar, and Cornelia Street Café, where he captivates audiences with his rapid-fire, high energy performances. Sonbert unleashes his alter-ego while singing and co-writing songs, for his Rock n' Roll band, The Never Enders. www.TheNeverEnders.com. Their debut album, Air Raid Romance, was released nationwide on Indianola Records, www.IndianolaRecords.com. Their latest effort, Dance Party In Hell, was released in May 2008 on Chamberlain Records. www.ChamberlainRecords.com

Divine Mimesis Contra Mundum Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Written between 1963 and 1967, The Divine Mimesis, Pasolini's imitation of the early cantos of the Inferno, offers a searing critique of Italian society and the intelligentsia of the 1960s. It is also a self-critique by the author of The Ashes of Gramsci (1957) who saw the civic world evoked by that book fading absolutely from view. By the mid-1960s, Pasolini theorized, the Italian language had sacrificed its connotative expressiveness for the sake of a denuded technological language of pure communication. In this context, he projects a 'rewrite' of Dante's Commedia in which two historical embodiments of Pasolini himself occupy the roles of the pilgrim and guide in their underworld journey. Densely layered with poetic and philological allusions, and illuminated by a parallel text of photographs that juxtapose the world of the Italian literati to the simple reality of rural Italian life, this narrative was curtailed by Pasolini several years before he sent it to his publisher, a few months prior to his murder in 1975. Yet, many of Pasolini's projects took the provisional form of "Notes toward..." an eventual work, such as Sopralluoghi in Palestina (Location Scouting in Palestine), Appunti per una Oresteiade africana (Notes for an African Oresteia), and Appunti per un film sull'India (Notes for a Film on India). The Divine Mimesis has a kinship to these filmic works as Pasolini himself ruled it 'complete' though still in a partial form. Written at a turning point in his life when he was wrestling with his poetic 'demons,' the true center of gravity of Pasolini's Dantean project is the potential of poetry to teach and probe, ethically and aesthetically, in reality. "I wanted to make something seething and magmatic," Pasolini declared, "even if in prose." In this first English translation of Pasolini's La divina mimesis, Italianist Thomas E. Peterson offers historical, linguistic, and cultural analyses that aim to expand the discourse about an enigmatic author considered by many to be the greatest Italian poet after Montale. Published by Contra Mundum Press one year in advance of the 40th anniversary of Pasolini's death. * In the history of twentieth-century poetry, there is no other poet besides Pasolini who has more tenaciously interrogated his own 'I,' more persistently contemplated it, admired it, examined it, analyzed it and dissected it in order then to show its suffering entrails to the world, as they beg for understanding, affection, and pity. - Giorgio Bŕrberi Squarotti *

"Ruysbroeck is Evelyn Underhillżs biography of 14th-century Flemish mystic John of Ruysbroeck. An ordained priest, Ruysbroeck was active for many years in Brussels before retiring to the Sonian Forest, where many of his surviving works were written. He is perhaps best remembered for conceiving of the żspiritual ladder of Christian attainmentż and its three stages of progress: the active life, the inward life, and the contemplative life. Unlike many mystics, he believed that the soul in its journey was capable of finding God but would never unify with God, maintaining always its own identity. And yet, though remembered for his mysticism, Ruysbroeck at times could be a traditionalist, forcefully writing in favor of historic Church customs. A highly readable and thorough examination of both his life and works, Rusybroeck is a classic profile of the man considered by some to be the greatest of all medieval Catholic mystics. British writer of prose and poetry EVELYN UNDERHILL (1875ż1941) was a fellow of Kingżs College for Women and Kingżs College, and was the first woman to lecture to the clergy in the Church of England. Through her radio appearances and her stint as editor of the political magazine The Spectator, she was a familiar voice in British public life between the wars. She authored more than 30 books (some under the pseudonym John Cordelier), including Concerning the Inner Life and Radiance: A Spiritual Memoir."

Jesus told us where he ""lives,"" and that he would prepare us a place there. Is our death the entry point? Must we struggle on, trying to be perfect? At a heavy pain-point in life, Judith was given a summer at an old, run-down ranch. And she wrote. Sky Mesa Journal is the account of a soul's unraveling and reweaving--and the simple metaphors of nature that moved her forward. The birds and beasts and ragged hills spoke up--in paradigm. They told her what she had never really known of that sacred understanding: God's Kingdom. It happens down deep or not at all. This mysterious inner ""landscape,"" she discovered, is the summation of our best intents and dreams and fairy tales, the answer to our hidden poverties, our inexplicable wanderings. The hills are alive! They have spoken! This is the gist of what happened on Sky Mesa Ranch. This journal is about life lived on a larger scale, for having seen the small signposts raised before her. The journal simply tells how it happened for one disheartened soul. It has been many years since that summer; for Judith, nothing has ever, ever been the same. ""During a sojourn at a ranch named Sky Mesa, Judith Deem Dupree sat daily to record not simply what she saw with her eyes, but felt with her soul. These observations, remarkably personal and therefore encouragingly human, are the music she created, solo pieces played before an audience who quickly discovers the harmonies in their own passions, 'not the cheap stuff. . .but something Spring-clean.' What a blessing she is."" --James Calvin Schaap, Author; Emeritus Professor of English, Dordt College, Sioux Center, IA ""In Sky Mesa Journal, Judith Deem Dupree invites us into her journey of discovering the abundant gifts of slowing down, attentiveness, curiosity, and compassion. With the heart of a mystic, Dupree gleans profound wisdom from the humblest of places and calls forth a holy/ordinary way of gently and radically befriending ourselves, one another, and our world.""  --Brianna Van Dyke, Editor-in-Chief, Ruminate Magazine Judith Deem Dupree has authored three books of poetry: Going Home, I Sing America, and living with what remains. She founded and directed Ad Lib, a former workshop/retreat for the arts, and created Mountain Empire Creative Arts Council in her home county. Judith taught creative writing at various workshops and conferences before retiring. An avid environmentalist and gardener, she is a fervent observer and blogger of the flux and flow of life.
