Toni Morrison´s Beloved as African-American Scripture & Other Articles on History and Canon is a very important academic book exploring the question of historicity and canonicity -- the relationship (in causality and relational terms) between the experience of human community and the creation (or the interpretation) of a religious text (and the canonization of a religious ´´text´´). This book contains a collection of academic articles ranging from African-American history, Jewish history, early Christian history, the New Testament, Patristic history, medieval history, and the history of the Reformation. This academic work is a bold quest to capture the essence of history and canon as phenomenalized in the human experience. Scholars and students of history, religion, literary criticism, sociology, anthropology, humanities, and theology will surely benefit from reading this book. Although this book is highly academic, it is written in a very readable style so that educated individuals who may not be specialists will benefit from the articles in the book. 1. Language: English.

Greece´s ´Odious´ Debt:The Looting of the Hellenic Republic by the Euro, the Political Elite and the Investment Community Anthem Other Canon Economics. 1. Auflage Jason Manolopoulos
To understand the modern Christian identity, faith, traditions, Scriptures, and theology, we must first understand its past. This course introduces you to the world of the first Christians and the theological and philosophical issues with which they dealt and which define the Christian faith today. Through this unique series by world-renowned patristic scholar Professor Brian E. Daley, SJ, you will encounter the first Christians and the beginnings of the Catholic Church. Explore the main features and figures of the church´s early life and its beginning stages. Examine the social and religious settings of the first Christian communities, the concerns that dominated their thinking, and the literary and liturgical forms in which they expressed their faith. Through this course, you will explore Christianity from the time of the Apostles through the writings of Origen, in the first half of the third century. Begin with a consideration of the world in which the earliest Christians lived: the Roman Empire. Explore the forms of authority that were developed in different parts of the Christian world and the formation of a distinctive Christian biblical canon. Follow the proliferation of Christian apocrypha, works written in biblical style but never claimed as normative for faith by the community as a whole. After reflecting on the attitudes of Hellenistic philosophers toward the new religion, you will learn about the first Christian philosopher to claim that title: Justin Martyr. Through this special course, you will learn about the ideas and thinkers who shaped the faith and its biblical canon and have inspired Christians for almost 2,000 years. 1. Language: English.

A young girl´s disappearance rocks a community and a family in this stirring examination of grief, faith, justice, and the atrocities of war, the latest from literary legend Joyce Carol Oates. Zeno Mayfield´s daughter has disappeared into the night, gone missing in the wilds of the Adirondacks. But when the community of Carthage joins a father´s frantic search for the girl, they discover instead the unlikeliest of suspects - a decorated Iraq War veteran with close ties to the Mayfield family. As grisly evidence mounts against the troubled war hero, the family must wrestle with the possibility of having lost a daughter forever. Carthage plunges us deep into the psyche of a wounded young Corporal, haunted by unspeakable acts of wartime aggression, while unraveling the story of a disaffected young girl whose exile from her family may have come long before her disappearance. Dark and riveting, Carthage is a powerful addition to the Joyce Carol Oates canon, one that explores the human capacity for violence, love and forgiveness, and asks it it´s ever truly possible to come home again. 1.

An indelible portrait of one of the most famous and beloved authors in the canon of American literature - a collection of letters between Harper Lee and one of her closest friends that reveals the famously private writer as never before, in her own words. The violent racism of the American South drove Wayne Flynt away from his home state of Alabama, but the publication of To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee´s classic novel about courage, community, and equality, inspired him to return in the early 1960s and craft a career documenting and teaching Alabama history. His writing resonated with many Alabamians, in particular three sisters: Louise, Alice, and Nelle Harper Lee. Beginning with their first meeting in 1983, a mutual respect and affection for the state´s history and literature matured into a deep friendship between two families, who can trace their roots there back more than five generations. Flynt and Nelle Harper Lee began writing to one other while she was living in New York - heartfelt, insightful, and humorous letters in which they swapped stories, information, and opinions on topics both personal and professional: their families, books, Alabama history and social values, health concerns, and even their fears and accomplishments. Though their earliest missives began formally - ´´Dear Dr. Flynt´´ - as the years passed and their mutual admiration grew, their exchanges became more intimate and emotional, opening with ´´Dear Friend´´ and closing with ´´I love you, Nelle´´. Through their enduring correspondence, the Lees and the Flynts became completely immersed in each other´s lives. Beautifully written, intelligent, and telling, this remarkable compendium of their letters - a correspondence that lasted for a quarter century, from 1992 until Harper Lee´s death in February 2016 - offers an incisive and compelling look into the mind, heart, and work of one of the most beloved authors in modern literary history. 1.

An epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted readers of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon. King says he wanted to know what happened to Danny Torrance, the boy at the heart of The Shining, after his terrible experience in the Overlook Hotel. The instantly riveting DOCTOR SLEEP picks up the story of the now middle-aged Dan, working at a hospice in rural New Hampshire, and the very special twelve-year old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. On highways across America, a tribe of people called The True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless - mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and tween Abra Stone learns, The True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the ´steam´ that children with the ´shining´ produce when they are slowly tortured to death. Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father´s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him and a job at a nursing home where his remnant ´shining´ power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes ´Doctor Sleep.´ Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan´s own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra´s soul and survival . . .
