“Lake Wobegon Days is about the way our beliefs, desires and fears tail off into abstractions--and get renewed from time to time. . . this book, unfolding Mr. Keillor's full design, is a genuine work of American history.” —The New York Times “A comic anatomy of what is small and ordinary and therefore potentially profound and universal in American life…Keillor’s strength as a writer is to make the ordinary extraordinary.” —Chicago Tribune “Keillor’s laughs come dear, not cheap, emerging from shared virtue and good character, from reassuring us of our neighborliness and strength….His true subject is how daily life is shot with grace. Keillor writes a prose that can be turned to laughter, to tears…to compassion or satire, to a hundred effects. He is a brilliant parodist.” —San Francisco Chronicle

Jodi Sampson was a typical girl growing up in a small community by the ocean. She dreamed of falling in love and a life full of good health, great times, and lots of love. Everything seemed to be on track when she married her high school sweetheart. She had some pregnancy troubles, but she hung onto her faith and had two beautiful daughters. But her sense of normalcy vanished when her brother died unexpectedly during her third pregnancy. Despite high levels of stress, she didn't miscarry. She knew from early on, then, that this child, a son she named Michael Francis, was going to be a fighter--a trait that became a double blessing when he was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor while still a toddler. Soon, Jodi's own health was threatened, too, but she relied on exercise, nutrition, and family to help her cope. Join Jodi as she proves that never giving up and relying on faith can lead to The Face of a Miracle.

The Oxford History of Protestant Dissenting Traditions, Volume III

The five-volume Oxford History of Dissenting Protestant Traditions series is governed by a motif of migration ('out-of-England'). It first traces organized church traditions that arose in England as Dissenters distanced themselves from a state church defined by diocesan episcopacy, the Book of Common Prayer, the Thirty-Nine Articles, and royal supremacy, but then follows those traditions as they spread beyond England -and also traces newer traditions that emerged downstream in other parts of the world from earlier forms of Dissent. Secondly, it does the same for the doctrines, church practices, stances toward state and society, attitudes toward Scripture, and characteristic patterns of organization that also originated in earlier English Dissent, but that have often defined a trajectory of influence independent ecclesiastical organizations. The Oxford History of Protestant Dissenting Traditions, Volume III considers the Dissenting traditions of the United Kingdom, the British Empire, and the United States in the nineteenth century. It provides an overview of the historiography on Dissent while making the case for seeing Dissenters in different Anglophone connections as interconnected and conscious of their genealogical connections. The nineteenth century saw the creation of a vast Anglo-world which also brought Anglophone Dissent to its apogee. Featuring contributions from a team of leading scholars, the volume illustrates that in most parts of the world the later nineteenth century was marked by a growing enthusiasm for the moral and educational activism of the state which plays against the idea of Dissent as a static, purely negative identity. This collection shows that Dissent was a political and constitutional identity, which was often only strong where a dominant Church of England existed to dissent against.

The difficulty of interpreting the Bible is felt all over today. Is the Bible still authoritative for the faith and practice of the church? If so, in what way? What practices of reading offer the most appropriate approach to understanding Scripture? The church's lack of clarity about these issues has hindered its witness and mission, causing it to speak with an uncertain voice to the challenges of our time. This important book is for a twenty-first-century church that seems to have lost the art of reading the Bible attentively and imaginatively. The Art of Reading Scripture is written by a group of eminent scholars and teachers seeking to recover the church's rich heritage of biblical interpretation in a dramatically changed cultural environment. Asking how best to read the Bible in a postmodern context, the contributors together affirm up front "Nine Theses" that provide substantial guidance for the church. The essays and sermons that follow both amplify and model the approach to Scripture outlined in the Nine Theses. Lucidly conceived, carefully written, and shimmering with fresh insights, The Art of Reading Scripture proposes a far-reaching revolution in how the Bible is taught in theological seminaries and calls pastors and teachers in the church to rethink their practices of using the Bible.

The Bible is often said to be one of the foundation texts of Western culture. The present volume shows that it goes far beyond being a religious text. The essays explore how religious, political and cultural identities, including ethnicity and gender, are embodied in biblical discourse. Following the authors, we read the Bible with new eyes: as a critic of gender, ideology, politics and culture. We ask ourselves new questions: about God's body, about women's role, about racial prejudices and about the politics of the written word. Reading Bibles, Writing Bodies crosses boundaries. It questions our most fundamental assumptions about the Bible. It shows how biblical studies can benefit from the mainstream of Western intellectual discourse, throwing up entirely new questions and offering surprising answers. Accessible, engaging and moving easily between theory and the reading of specific texts, this volume is an exciting contribution to contemporary biblical and cultural studies.

The Devil’s Heart Now it was summer again in Whitfield. The town was peaceful, quiet, and unprepared for the atrocities to come. Eternal life, everlasting youth, an orgy that would span time—that was what the Lord of Darkness was promising the coven members in return for their pledge of love. The few who had fought against his hideous powers before, believed it could never happen again. Then the hot wind began to blow---as black and evil as . . . The Devil’s Heart

My story is fictional, based on a true experience. At the scene of an auto accident that destroyed my car and left me injured, the first person who appeared was a woman unknown to me. She leaned into my car, called my name saying, You will be all right; God is protecting you. She was on her way to a ladies prayer group where she would request prayer. She continued to give words of comfort. I could not turn my head to look at her face, but I could see her from the corner of my eye. I did not recognize her voice. I felt truly impressed that she had come to me as a personal angel messenger to bring words of comfort from God the Father. I felt absolute peace as I sat confined in the front seat of my car, unable to move; that Gods protection was covering me. Throughout the duration of my immobility, being unable to walk for about four months, it became my obsessed determination to find the woman; to express my appreciation for bringing the words of comfort to me that day, and for her prayers and those of her prayer group. I am in search of this angel. I maintain the hope of her someday reading this book and know that I am searching for her.

Memoirs of the Life of Sir Walter Scott, Bart

As son-in-law and literary executor to Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832), John Gibson Lockhart (1794-1854) was uniquely placed to produce a definitive biography of the great poet and novelist. First published in 1837-8, shortly after Scott's death, this celebrated seven-volume work is based on personal memories, correspondence, and Scott's own autobiographical sketches. Wide-ranging in his purview, Lockhart is also detailed in his descriptions: the Aberdeen Journal of the day observed that the volumes trace Scott's life and literary efforts with 'the most minute distinctness'. Volume 1 opens with Scott's brief autobiography, written in 1808 and revised in 1825. Lockhart's biography proper opens with Scott's birth in 1771, provides an account of his education, and concludes here with his first contributions to the Edinburgh Review in 1804.

He was an ordinary citizen, perhaps a schoolteacher, but nonetheless an enigma, who followed his country's armies into that holocaust called The War Between The States. Compelled by a sense of obligation, the author chronicled neither great battles nor the deeds of generals but instead focused on the experiences of those who bore the war's greatest costs-the soldiers who fought it and the common people who endured it. For too long, owing to the many misleading myths propagated in the North about the Southern "Cause" and afterwards promoted by the general culture (via entertainment and formal education), he's been made the war's villain. "Johnny Reb" was as genuinely American as any soldier in blue. He fought doggedly and ultimately against overwhelming odds for the Southern states in what he perceived and believed was the defense of the Constitution as he and learned men then interpreted it. The war never truly resolved the Constitutional issue of states' rights versus federal authority, having merely stifled the debate via force of arms. No one knows his ultimate fate, but those he wrote about no longer remain anonymous In the Beauty of the Lilies.

Take my life or change it, Milta Velez declared to a God she had just met. With this statement, she challenged God while standing at the altar with a gun in her purse. She grew up in Manhattan at a time when womens liberation was born. She sought her identity in the nightclubs of New York. With five disastrous relationships, she was following in the footsteps of the Samaritan woman when Jesus touched her and saved her life. Tired and desperate, she surrendered to Jesus. During her walk with God, she struggled with the conversion of being a Christian because she didnt believe in miracles, until the day she decided to put Jesus to the test. Her first granted miracle enabled her to purchase her first home without any credit or collateral. Milta soon discovered that anything is possible in the name of Jesus. And that a dreamer in the hands of God can accomplish great things. Milta sets an example of what one can accomplish when one surrenders their hopelessness to God. Today she owns a travel agency, a restaurant, and the property.
