Glory Jansen has always been content to be in her beauty queen sister’s shadow. A rebuff by a group of pompous frat boys, however, compels her to enter The Miss Crystal Lake Pageant out of spite. To everyone's surprise, including her own, she wins. Her mother, who was stripped of the Miss Empire State crown in 1948 because of an unwanted pregnancy, is partially vindicated. Two of her daughters are on their way to the Miss American Beauty Pageant. On her road to "nationals," Glory soon finds herself thrust from her sheltered world into that socio-cultural roller coaster that was 1969. It is a world populated by hawks and doves, fraternity brothers and radicals, beauty queens and bra-burning feminists. On this journey she not only discovers true love, but also her own self worth as a woman. In the end, Glory must decide between accepting the conformity of the crown or shunning her victory by escaping into a better, less complicated life with the man she loves—the revolutionary, Joad Colter.

Women and Worship at Corinth

Paul's arguments in 1 Corinthians 11-14 - from the role of women in public worship, to the value of speaking in tongues and prophecy for the unbeliever - have long posed challenges to the lay reader and scholar. Despite numerous explanations offeredover the years, these passages remain marked by inconsistencies, contradictions, and puzzles. Lucy Peppiatt offers an interpretation in which she proposes that Paul was in conversation with the Corinthian male leadership concerning their domineering, superior and selfish practices, which included coercing women to wear head coverings, lording it over the 'have-nots' at the Lord's Supper, and ordering married women to keep quiet in church. Peppiatt's bold arguments not only bring internal coherence to the text, but also paint a picture of the apostle gripped by a vision for a new humanity 'in the Lord', resulting in his refusal to compromise with the traditional views of his own society. Instead, Paul tells the Corinthians to become morelike Christ, to make 'love' their aim, and to restore dignity and honour to women, outsiders, and the poor.

'Catholicism Revisited' is an attempt to render Roman Catholicism more credible. The book rests on the author's conviction that a fuller and more correct understanding of Catholicism as a religion can emerge only from a radical reappraisal of the salvific role of Jesus' humanity, and of his human faith, hope and love, in line with the basic and central doctrines of the Incarnation and the Trinity. Being a Catholic means sharing in an ordinary but truly mystical way in the spirit of Jesus' human faith, hope and love, and to the maintenance of this insight and the faith-vision of reality it entails all else must yield precedence - the conventional notion of God, the necessary system of Catholic beliefs which support the faith-vision, and the Church itself. In the course of the book many fundamental issues are raised and discussed, not least the metaphorical nature of theology, the connection between faith and beliefs, the meaning and use of Catholic doctrines, the actual experience of being human. It is in the light of these issues that the author sees an urgent need to re-imagine the God of Catholicism. A born Catholic, Robert Butterworth was educated by the Jesuits and spent forty years in the Society of Jesus. He read classics at Oxford and completed his doctorate in early Christian theology at the Gregorian University in Rome. During more than twenty years as Head of Department he taught theology at Heythrop College in the University of London and at Roehampton University. On retirement from academia and from the Society he married and now lives near London. He has published autobiographical reflections on his experiences in 'The Detour' (Gracewing, 2005).
