Scrolls of Love is a book of unions. Edited by a Christian and a Jew who are united by a shared passion for the Bible and a common literary hermeneutic, this volume joins two biblical scrolls and gathers around them a diverse community of interpreters. Respectful of traditional biblical scholarship, the collection of essays moves beyond it; alert to contemporary trends, the volume returns venerable interpretive tradition to center stage. Most significantly, it is interfaith, bringing together two communities that have read their Bibles in isolation from one another, in ignorance of the richness of the others traditions.

Beverly Jane Phillips grew up in a Christian family, married a minister, and served with him in four separate parishes. She was one of the first women in the Presbyterian Church to earn a master of divinity degree. But even during this amazing life, Beverly had trials and days when she did not feel her Lord by her side. She had days when she felt doubtsometimes even despair. To combat these days of darkness and bring her closer to God, Beverly began a daily prayer journal. For over thirty years, she wrote her morning prayers in spiral notebooks; these became the basis for From Heaven to My Heart, a collection of prayers from an ordinary Christian woman who lived an extraordinary life. Beverlys transparency about her own spiritual journey not only enlightens but also encourages, sharing the message that even the devout encounter moments of difficulty in their faith. Through those difficulties difficulty arise inspiration, insight, wisdomand faith in an everlasting, benevolent creator. Whether you are interested in beginning a journey with God, or seeking encouragement to continue, From Heaven to My Heart will become a valued companion.

Wie kann eine Frau verschwinden, die es nie gegeben hat? Die Journalistin Lo Blacklock nimmt an der Jungfernfahrt eines exklusiven Luxuskreuzfahrtschiffs an der norwegischen Küste teil. Ein wahrgewordener Traum. Doch in der ersten Nacht auf See erwacht sie von einem Geräusch aus der Nachbarkabine. Sie hört, wie etwas ins Wasser geworfen wird. Etwas Schweres, ungefähr von der Größe eines menschlichen Körpers. Und die Reling ist blutverschmiert. Lo alarmiert den Sicherheitsoffizier. Die Nachbarkabine ist leer, ohne das geringste Anzeichen, dass hier jemand wohnte. Keine Kleider, kein Blut, kein Eintrag ins Passagierregister. Die Frau aus Kabine 10, mit der Lo noch am Vortag gesprochen hat, scheint nie existiert zu haben ...

Ruth Ozeki erkundet, was es heißt, in diesem Augenblick, genau jetzt, ein Mensch zu sein – »bezaubernd, klug und herzzerreißend« (Junot Díaz). »Hallo! Ich heiße Nao, und ich bin ein Zeitwesen. Weißt du, was ein Zeitwesen ist? Wenn du einen Moment hast, erzähl ich es dir.« So beginnt das Tagebuch des japanischen Teenagers Nao, das eines Tages am Strand einer kanadischen Pazifikinsel angespült wird. Nao schreibt von Einsamkeit und Mobbing, vom depressiven Vater, von ihrer schillernden Urgroßmutter Jiko und den Geheimnissen des Zen. Die Autorin Ruth, die das Tagebuch gefunden hat, ist bald wie gebannt von Naos Notizen und beginnt zugleich um ihr Leben zu fürchten – hat Nao letztlich Selbstmord begangen? Ist sie im Tsunami gestorben? Die Suche nach Antworten gerät für Ruth zu einer magischen Reise durch die Gegenwart, die am Ende auch den Blick auf ihr eigenes Leben verwandelt.
