After a life of sex and drugs and the Communards - brilliantly recounted in the highly acclaimed first volume of his memoirs FATHOMLESS RICHES - the Reverend Richard Coles went on to devote his life to God and Christianity. He is also a much-loved broadcaster, presenting SATURDAY LIVE on Radio 4 and giving us regular reason to PAUSE FOR THOUGHT on Radio 2. What is life like for the parson in Britain today? For centuries the Church calendar - and the Church minister - gave character and personality to British life. Today, however, as the shape of the year has become less distinct and faith no longer as privileged or persuasive, that figure has become far more marginal. In BRINGING IN THE SHEAVES, Reverend Coles answers this question. From his ordination during the season of Petertide, through Advent and Christmas to Lent and Easter, he gives us a unique insight into his daily experience in the ministry, with all the joy, drama, difficulty and humour which life - and indeed death - serves up in varying measures. Written with extraordinary charm and erudition, BRINGING IN THE SHEAVES features a multitude of characters and events from parish life against a backdrop of the Christian calendar.

Combining the skills of a leading biblical scholar with the wisdom derived from years spent training candidates for ordination, Richard Burridge offers rich reflections on the four gospel portraits of Jesus and shows how they not only inform the calling to ordained ministry but also help sustain the practice of Christian ministry in its various dimensions. Four Ministries, One Jesus is for all who feel called to a life of Christian ministry and want to ground their calling in the teaching and example of Jesus, as provided in the four gospels. Burridge helps readers consider vital questions such as: how to sustain reading, Bible study, and theological reflection in ministry; how to extend pastoral care to people outside as well as inside the Christian community; how to care for self and family; and how to stay attuned to the Spirit by cultivating a fresh and vigorous life of prayer.

#1-Bestseller der New York Times Den betörend geheimnisvollen Namen Calypso teilen sich unter anderem eine griechische Meeresnymphe, ein afrikanisch-karibischer Tanzrhythmus und ein Saturnmond. Fragt man David Sedaris, ist Calypso ein besonders bescheuerter Name für eine Katze. Aber auch ein betörend geheimnisvoller Titel für die lang erwartete neue Geschichtensammlung eines der erfolgreichsten Humoristen unserer Zeit, der es wie kein anderer versteht, zarte Schönheit im Hässlichen zu entdecken und die banale Komik des schönen Scheins zu entlarven. Die autobiografischen Geschichten in Calypso kreisen um das solare Zentrum der Familie. In den Ferien und an Feiertagen kommt der Sedaris-Clan zusammen, im elterlichen Strandhaus, später in David Sedaris' eigener Zuflucht mit Meerblick, und flickt am generationsübergreifenden Quilt aus gescheiterten Beziehungen, tragischen Toden, späten Einsichten - und hartnäckiger Liebe zu den Freunden, die man sich nicht aussuchen kann.

Einst hat Kester die Tiere gerettet: Wird es ihm jetzt gelingen, die Menschen zu retten? Er dachte, sein Abenteuer sei vorbei. Doch er hat sich getäuscht. Kester lebte in einer Welt, in der fast alle Tiere ausgerottet waren. Bis er die letzten ihrer Art kennenlernte und feststellte, dass er mit ihnen sprechen kann. Und dass es seine Mission ist, sie zu retten. Doch unter den überlebenden Tieren gibt es einige, die an den verhassten Menschen Rache nehmen wollen – tödliche Rache. Nur Kester kann die Verschwörung noch stoppen.
