Book Excerpt :

It’s been six months since Jacque Lupei was imprisoned in the dark forest with her female pack mates, wondering if they would ever see their mates again. Six months since she and Fane found out that Jen and Decebel would not be the only couple adding a new pup to the pack. Six months of peace and quiet...other than Jen running her mouth incessantly about Sally getting to go on an adventure with Peri while she has to miss all the fun. When she isn’t complaining about that, she spends her time commenting on how Jacque’s butt is getting wider by the minute. Jacque doesn’t know it, but the reprieve was about to be over. She and Fane thought his demons had been dealt with, but the nightmares are back and the In-Between is once again ripping a hole inside of her mate. Jacque can’t stand to see him hurting. She can’t stand knowing that in some way she was responsible for his struggle because she, after all, was the subject of his pain from the In-Between. She’ll do anything to stop his turmoil. So she makes a desperate decision to do what she thinks her mate needs, or doesn’t need. Others will call it insane. Jen will add her own creative descriptions, including expletives thrown in for added effect. Whatever you call it, Jacque calls it an answer to the darkness that is slowly consuming her mate. She knows that if Fane has any idea of what she has planned, he would chain her to his side. So, naturally she does what any female Canis lupus would do in her shoes--she shuts down the bond and prays that no one gets in her way. She knows he might never forgive her, but then, if her plan works, he won’t even remember her name.

Book Short Summary:

A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year for Nonfiction "...an essential and engaging look at recent disability history."— Buzzfeed One of the most influential disability rights activists in US history tells her personal story of fighting for the right to receive an education, have a job, and just be human. A story of fighting to belong in a world that wasn’t built for all of us and of one woman’s activism—from the streets of Brooklyn and San Francisco to inside the halls of Washington—Being Heumann recounts Judy Heumann’s lifelong battle to achieve respect, acceptance, and inclusion in society. Paralyzed from polio at eighteen months, Judy’s struggle for equality began early in life. From fighting to attend grade school after being described as a “fire hazard” to later winning a lawsuit against the New York City school system for denying her a teacher’s license because of her paralysis, Judy’s actions set a precedent that fundamentally improved rights for disabled people. As a young woman, Judy rolled her wheelchair through the doors of the US Department of Health, Education, and Welfare in San Francisco as a leader of the Section 504 Sit-In, the longest takeover of a governmental building in US history. Working with a community of over 150 disabled activists and allies, Judy successfully pressured the Carter administration to implement protections for disabled peoples’ rights, sparking a national movement and leading to the creation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Candid, intimate, and irreverent, Judy Heumann’s memoir about resistance to exclusion invites readers to imagine and make real a world in which we all belong.

Book Short Summary:

This collection of critical essays finds itself at the intersection of cultural, literary and film studies, and explores the various ways in which dysfunction is expressed in Irish studies. Dysfunction can be regarded as part and parcel of a portrayal of a landscape of trauma and crisis that may have been traditionally repressed in Ireland at large. However, dysfunction also envisages mediation, managing, transcending and healing. As such, this volume examines how Ireland tackles dysfunction at large, but more importantly, how mediation, managing, healing and transcending help in the understanding of the ever-changing and on-going process of the construction of an Irish identity today; sometimes looking back at the past, but always creating the need of inventing new ways to understand the future of Ireland. The collection presents essays which tackle dysfunction from different and multifarious perspectives that range from sociological, historical and literary discourses to more contemporary insights into dysfunction in today’s Ireland. It encompasses theory and analysis and includes the works of both senior academics and emerging scholars, as well as those outside academia.

Book Short Summary:

"Douglas' words conjure up images - like an artist brushing dabs of paint on the canvas of ones mind - all senses forced to come alive for a truly amazing experience. These are poems that will stir the heart and continue to resonate with each reading. " Gary R. Indianapolis "Muscular and lyrical, sensuous and deeply spiritual, the poetry of Terry Douglas probes the heart's longing for love and union with the beloved and the soul's quest for grace and oneness with the divine. Even those who don't read poetry will find much here that resonates in the heart and awakens the soul." Evan A., Virginia Beach, VA Does a Footstep Linger? explores the fire of love found at any age and in any season, and the stunning grief from love lost. There are poems in the collection that seek the Creator’s presence and spiritual nourishment in all aspects of life’s journey. An exuberance and energy unfold in the poems as we are encouraged to dance in celebration, as if no one is watching, leaving behind past regrets and no longer anxious of the future. Above all else, the poet probes the many mysteries and miracles – some would say coincidences – encountered daily in a long life of love. For inspiration, the poet pauses to contemplate a sunrise on the ocean or a star-filled canopy overhead; he walks on an isolated beach in a blustery rain storm, or sits perched on a deck overlooking a canal as the water rushes into the bay, or in a coffee shop amidst the turmoil of another day.

Book Short Summary:

How did nineteenth-century women's poetry shift from the poetess poetry of lyric effusion and hyper-femininity to the muscular epic of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Aurora Leigh? Networking the Nation re-writes women's poetic traditions by demonstrating the debt that Barrett Browning's revolutionary poetics owed to a circle of American and British women poets living in Florence and campaigning in their poetry and in their salons for Italian Unification. These women poets—Isa Blagden, Elizabeth Kinney, Eliza Ogilvy, and Theodosia Garrow Trollope—formed with Barrett Browning a network of poetry, sociability, and politics, which was devoted to the mission of campaigning for Italy as an independent nation state. In their poetic experiments with the active lyric voice, in their forging of a transnational persona through the periodical press, in their salons and spiritualist séances, the women poets formed a network that attempted to assert and perform an independent unified Italy in their work. Networking the Nation maps the careers of these expatriate women poets who were based in Florence in the key years of Risorgimento politics, racing their transnational social and print communities, and the problematic but schismatic shift in their poetry from the conventional sphere of the poetess. In the fraught and thrilling engagement with their adopted nation's revolutionary turmoil, and in their experiments with different types of writing agency, the women poets in this book offer revolutions of other kinds: revolutions of women's poetry and the very act of writing.

Book Short Summary:

As featured in the Oscar-nominated documentary Crip Camp, and for readers of I Am Malala, one of the most influential disability rights activists in US history tells her story of fighting to belong. “If I didn’t fight, who would?” Judy Heumann was only 5 years old when she was first denied her right to attend school. Paralyzed from polio and raised by her Holocaust-surviving parents in New York City, Judy had a drive for equality that was instilled early in life. In this young readers’ edition of her acclaimed memoir, Being Heumann, Judy shares her journey of battling for equal access in an unequal world—from fighting to attend grade school after being described as a “fire hazard” because of her wheelchair, to suing the New York City school system for denying her a teacher’s license because of her disability. Judy went on to lead 150 disabled people in the longest sit-in protest in US history at the San Francisco Federal Building. Cut off from the outside world, the group slept on office floors, faced down bomb threats, and risked their lives to win the world’s attention and the first civil rights legislation for disabled people. Judy’s bravery, persistence, and signature rebellious streak will speak to every person fighting to belong and fighting for social justice.

Jaque Pierce was an ordinary 17-year-old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, TX when a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street. Jacque and her two best friends Sally and Jen don’t realize the last two weeks of their summer are going to get a lot more interesting. From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane, she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn too is actually a Canis Lupus, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate, the other half of his soul. The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring. Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy and will Jacque accept she is Fane’s mate and complete the bond between them?

Book Short Summary:

The Oxford Handbook of Christology brings together 40 authoritative essays considering the theological study of the nature and role of Jesus Christ. This collection offers dynamic perspectives within the study of Christology and provides rigorous discussion of inter-confessional theology, which would not have been possible even 60 years ago. The first of the seven parts considers Jesus Christ in the Bible. Rather than focusing solely on the New Testament, this section begins with discussion of the modes of God's self-communication to us and suggests that Christ's most original incarnation is in the language of the Hebrew Bible. The second section considers Patristics Christology. These essays explore the formation of the doctrines of the person of Christ and the atonement between the First Council of Nicaea in 325 and the eve of the Second Council of Nicaea. The next section looks at Mediaeval theology and tackles the development of the understanding of who Christ was and of his atoning work. The section on 'Reformation and Christology' traces the path of the Reformation from Luther to Bultmann. The fifth section tackles the new developments in thinking about Christ which have emerged in the modern and the postmodern eras, and the sixth section explains how beliefs about Jesus have affected music, poetry, and the arts. The final part concludes by locating Christology within systematic theology, asking how it relates to Christian belief as a whole. This comprehensive volume provides an invaluable resource and reference for scholars, students, and general readers interested in the study of Christology.

  • Pdf File: promising-nothing.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Can the categories of classical Lutheran Christology be unleashed to express the vitality of christological existence, an existence situated between Promise and experience? If, as Martin Luther famously asserted in his Heidelberg Disputation (1518), “true theology and recognition of God are in the crucified Christ,” then such a theological point of departure not only bore radical implications for his Christology, but indeed also bears profound significance for theological discussions around the Word of Promise, its structure, its experience, its plurality. With regard to the elaboration of the two natures of Jesus Christ, such a point of departure permits a delineation of Promise—“the body of Promise”—who is bound to, who suffers, the nihil of human existence. Which means: such a point of departure affords us equally the opportunity to consider and probe the implications of the nihil as the medium of both threat and Promise. Is this a promising threat? Or a threatening Promise? Ultimately, Promise is delineated from within hermeneutical origins—the christological function of Scripture, the text—and, developed through to its diverse expression as the body of Promise, translated into christological existence. Within this context, categories of classical Lutheran Christology begin to express new vitality. Along the way, the Word of Promise—as developed within the trajectory of Luther’s theology of the cross and his radical delineation of the two natures of Jesus Christ—receives further sharpening within the context of discussion with such theological voices as John Caputo and Jacques Derrida, Hans Holbein the Younger, Albert Schweitzer, Matthias Grünewald, Carl Braaten, Karl Barth, Michael Welker, and Samuel Terrien. Ultimately, we are permitted to confess: There is one Crucified. And he is plural.

Have you ever wished you could understand that soldier you know and love better? Or perhaps youre a soldier yourself who feels as if no one really understands what youve been through.

He gives hope to those who have been there that they can survive. In this memoir, an army chaplain presents his life story with humor, pride, and sorrow, along with a firsthand understanding of the sacrifices the soldiers and their families make each day.

Book Short Summary:

Victims of the Voice. A contemporary parable for anyone who wants to achieve, through direct experience, their full potential. The author, Vic Van Maren Jr. has an encounter with his muse Izy, an Idea. This powerful idea has existed in the space of breathing in and breathing out, feeling safe. He had avoided being usurped by the darkness of silence by hiding in the cracks of no time, observing the slow tedious tick of time. Boredom begins to slide into those crack of no time, squeezing to tighten it's grip. Boredom needed to eat and ideas were his favorite meal. Izy is afraid, yet refuses to be silent and has the audacity to express himself as an idea whose time. He chooses to speak himself into existence. His only path of escape is through the slow erupting volcano of darkness and silence, then past the thundering crack of boredom's piercing growl of hunger. He leaps into the space in the flicker of a moment ... into now. On his road to expressing himself he has encounters with other ideas. Doubt, Attitude, Belief, System, Anger, Opinion, Feelings, Resentment, Fear, Shame and Guilt threaten to stop him on his road to expressing himself, as an idea whose time has come. These encounters have tested his resolve and dimmed his glow of enthusiasm. He has heard the offerings of odd beliefs that caused confusion to run unrestrained, producing havoc in the minds of man. He also saw many secrets that were being withheld. He is determined to share those secrets by introducing the possibility that language, when spoken responsibly, has great power. Will Izy have the audacity to be who he is really meant to be, and will it be enough to keep him from becoming another victim of the voice?

Book Short Summary:

 Henrik Ibsen, Anton Chekhov and August Strindberg—innovators of modern drama—created characters whose reckless pursuits of irrational objectives blind them to better options. Ibsen’s protagonists in A Doll’s House, Hedda Gabler and The Master Builder try to bend the world to conform to their personal visions—with disastrous results. Chekhov’s characters refuse to do anything, instead dramatizing their lives as if they were actors in a play (which they are). Rehearsing the intractable squabbles between men and women in The Dance of Death and The Ghost Sonata, Strindberg suggests that only in life beyond death can humanity transcend the brutality of existence. Together, the lives of these characters offer a study of the individual’s struggle with modernity.

Book Short Summary:

For some it's their ailing grandparent living long enough to witness the birth of their first grandchild. Whereas, for others it's making it to their bed because the two individuals (Jack and Morgan) they considered their best friends, utterly intoxicated their body. From heat and a roof over your head to a pair of select stilettos going on sale, everyone appends distinct components for their interpretation of a miracle. For him it was receiving an invitation to a professional hockey team's training camp. Though he wasn't guaranteed anything other than an opportunity to rightfully earn a roster spot, he was compelled to manifest the results of diligence. Kiyaga-ism Act II: Unauthorized Departure is the second chapter in the poetic landscape echoing an illustrious odyssey. From Kampala, Uganda to Fort Wayne, Indiana I've constructed pages that feel like a movie but read like a CD. Driven by hockey and steered by everything our beautiful world has to offer, this book promises to be fun yet profound.

Madame Sousatzka's newest student is an astonishing talent, and in her hands, the new boy will blossom into musical genius. But the public cannot hear him yet: until his debut he belongs to Sousatzka and her bizarre hot- house tenants. One day he will be a great pianist - until that day he must play only for Sousatzka ...

Book Short Summary:

There is a common hope for a richer, deeper life that connects a person to their past, to the people around them, and to a transcendental source—sometimes referred to as God, or the Unconscious. Root Out of Dry Ground provides an exploration into Carl Jung's depth psychology as it is used to understand a person's growth, the development of spirituality and religion in the West, as well as ways to live outside of traditional cultural and religious structures. Root Out of Dry Ground is an autobiographical sketch of Peter Buhler's life in southern Manitoba and Alberta; it covers Mennonite history in Canada and in Europe, and offers a philosophical analysis of historical developments across both Western and Eastern cultures. The book utilizes the ideas of Carl Jung in order to analyze historical developments over thousands of years, with a particular emphasis on world religions and the cultures they gave birth to, and to better understand Christian language and theology. In the autobiographical sketch, there is also careful attention to Peter Buhler's family, with an affirming remembrance of his brothers and sisters, and their mother and father. Root Out of Dry Ground serves as a foundation for bringing people together in a meaningful way, where the ideas of great thinkers and artists can help guide discussions and explorations of reality particularly for those who have lost their religious practice but remain rooted in their religious language and story.

Book Short Summary:

Individual chapters highlight the unique issues related to policy making in this field - the important role of diverse Aboriginal organizations, the need to address Aboriginal and Treaty rights and the right to self-government, and the lack of governmental leadership - revealing a complex jurisdictional and programming maze. Contributors look at provinces where there has been extensive activity as well as provinces where urban Aboriginal issues seem largely irrelevant to governments. They cover small and mid-sized towns, remote communities, and large metropolises. While their research acknowledges that existing Aboriginal policy falls short in many ways, it also affirms that the field is new and there are grounds for improvement as it grows and matures. Contributors include Frances Abele (Carleton University), Chris Andersen (University of Alberta), Katherine A. H. Graham (Carleton University), Russell LaPointe (Carleton University), David J. Leech (Skelton-Clark Post-Doctoral Fellow, Queen's University), Maeengan Linklater (Mazinaate, Inc., Winnipeg), Michael McCrossan (Carleton University), James Moore (City of Kelowna), Karen Bridget Murray (York University), Evelyn J. Peters (University of Winnipeg), Jenna Strachan (Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, Kelowna BC ), Ryan Walker (University of Saskatchewan), and Robert Young (University of Western Ontario).
