Description :


Many see the Book of Esther as a contrived folk-tale--little more than an engaging fiction serving as the rationale for an enduring, light-hearted celebration. The Anatomy of the Book of Esther turns that common misperception on its head by presenting evidence for the book's veracity based on Persian, Greek and Jewish archaeological, historical, midrashic and scriptural sources.The volume includes an introduction that sets the historical context as well as the full Hebrew text, its English translation, preliminary and final blessings, hymns and a unique line-by-line commentary. This volume is suitable for synagogue or academic use as well as for individual study.

From the pulpit to the parking lot, anger has become a debilitating cancer to the souls of Christians. A cancer that stunts the spiritual maturation and matriculation of Christians every day. However, the Bible still suggests that Christians possess the ability to be angry and do no harm. I then propose that anger is not the problem. Rather, it is our learned response to anger and untreated emotions that lead to challenges in life and the sin that may follow. This begs the questions, what is anger, what is its origin, and how do we manage it? Listen, sisters, I invite you to trek with me through this dark tunnel, my thirty-year journey from hurt to healing. A healing found in the most unsuspecting place-in the perfect will of the Father. So, grab a pen, a toasty drink, your favorite notebook, a box of tissues, and brace yourself to laugh out loud as I share my untold story and provide you with practical, yet amazingly powerful tools that I have learned along this journey to living my best life in Christ. Are you ready? Let's get started.

Description :


People who pray are those who break through, who hold on, who stand in the gap, who will not be silent, and even who change history. But they are also those who wait in the silence, sometimes in the sorrows, who contemplate His beauty, and stand in awe. The Discipline of Intimacy looks at the dynamic paradox of prayer: knowing how to be still and silent but also how to plead and speak. Knowing how to let go but also how to hold on. For individuals and church groups, The Discipline of Intimacy is for anyone seeking help to develop their relationship with God, particularly where once-passionate hearts may have lost their spark. With accompanying videos and questions for reflection and discussion, readers and participants will be introduced to practical and biblically-rooted ways to experience the intimacy with God they have longed for, and will have the tools to cultivate a life that is characterized by this closeness.

The world to which the Gospel of Mark introduces its reader is a world of conflicts and suspense, enigmas and secrets, questions and overturning of evidence, irony and surprise. Its principal actor, Jesus, is perplexing in the extreme. He is evidently so for the religious authorities who oppose him, but also for his disciples, who shift from incomprehension to opposition and flight. Questions of meaning, life and death, good and evil are continually broached. This narrative is a subtle invitation to enter into a new world, that of the coming Reign of God, in which the first are last and whoever wants to save his life must lose it. This commentary on the Gospel of Mark has been enthusiastically reviewed in the French edition as one of the best current commentaries on Mark. As a narrative critical commentary, it favors an interpretation of the Gospel that tries to grasp the dynamic of the text taken as a whole. Even if the technical vocabulary of narrative analysis is not used, and the main results of the historical-critical criticism, particularly those of redaction criticism, are not neglected, as the notes will reveal, it is narrative criticism that guides the proceedings.

Constellations: No one disputes their celestial glory -dazzling, dramatic, and perhaps somehow meaningful. But how? What is it about the 12 major constellations in our night sky that has captivated almost everyone throughout history from ancient stargazers searching the skies with naked eyes to modern astronomers scanning the stars through incredibly powerful telescopes. There are those who claim the stars give each of us personal information based on the date of our birth. But we know better, or course. Are the positioning of the stars entirely random? If so, why do they tell such a powerful story? Is anything in God's universe truly random? Is He not a God of order, with an immense desire to teach us and reach us through every possible aspect of His creation? Study the heavens with a biblical perspective and learn the real message God has written in the stars.

Description :


Acclaimed medical historian Howard Markel traces the careers of two brilliant young doctors—Sigmund Freud, neurologist, and William Halsted, surgeon—showing how their powerful addictions to cocaine shaped their enormous contributions to psychology and medicine. When Freud and Halsted began their experiments with cocaine in the 1880s, neither they, nor their colleagues, had any idea of the drug's potential to dominate and endanger their lives. An Anatomy of Addiction tells the tragic and heroic story of each man, accidentally struck down in his prime by an insidious malady: tragic because of the time, relationships, and health cocaine forced each to squander; heroic in the intense battle each man waged to overcome his affliction. Markel writes of the physical and emotional damage caused by the then-heralded wonder drug, and how each man ultimately changed the world in spite of it—or because of it. One became the father of psychoanalysis; the other, of modern surgery. Here is the full story, long overlooked, told in its rich historical context.

Description :


Why do we find artificial people fascinating? Drawing from a rich fictional and cinematic tradition, Anatomy of a Robot explores the political and textual implications of our perennial projections of humanity onto figures such as robots, androids, cyborgs, and automata. In an engaging, sophisticated, and accessible presentation, Despina Kakoudaki argues that, in their narrative and cultural deployment, artificial people demarcate what it means to be human. They perform this function by offering us a non-human version of ourselves as a site of investigation. Artificial people teach us that being human, being a person or a self, is a constant process and often a matter of legal, philosophical, and political struggle. By analyzing a wide range of literary texts and films (including episodes from Twilight Zone, the fiction of Philip K. Dick, Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel Never Let Me Go, Metropolis, The Golem, Frankenstein, The Terminator, Iron Man, Blade Runner, and I, Robot), and going back to alchemy and to Aristotle’s Physics and De Anima, she tracks four foundational narrative elements in this centuries-old discourse— the fantasy of the artificial birth, the fantasy of the mechanical body, the tendency to represent artificial people as slaves, and the interpretation of artificiality as an existential trope. What unifies these investigations is the return of all four elements to the question of what constitutes the human. This focused approach to the topic of the artificial, constructed, or mechanical person allows us to reconsider the creation of artificial life. By focusing on their historical provenance and textual versatility, Kakoudaki elucidates artificial people’s main cultural function, which is the political and existential negotiation of what it means to be a person.
