He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. –from the Song of David (2 Samuel 22:35)
The Bronze Bow, written by Elizabeth George Speare (author of The Witch of Blackbird Pond) won the Newbery Medal in 1962. This gripping, action-packed novel tells the story of eighteen-year-old Daniel bar Jamin—a fierce, hotheaded young man bent on revenging his father’s death by forcing the Romans from his land of Israel. Daniel’s palpable hatred for Romans wanes only when he starts to hear the gentle lessons of the traveling carpenter, Jesus of Nazareth. A fast-paced, suspenseful, vividly wrought tale of friendship, loyalty, the idea of home, community . . . and ultimately, as Jesus says to Daniel on page 224: “Can’t you see, Daniel, it is hate that is the enemy? Not men. Hate does not die with killing. It only springs up a hundredfold. The only thing stronger than hate is love.” A powerful, relevant read in turbulent times.
Great product!

Black Nature: Four Centuries of African American Nature Poetry

Price: $26.95 - $25.66
(as of Jun 24,2019 06:45:53 UTC – Details)


Black Nature is the first anthology to focus on nature writing by African American poets, a genre that until now has not commonly been counted as one in which African American poets have participated.

Black poets have a long tradition of incorporating treatments of the natural world into their work, but it is often read as political, historical, or protest poetry―anything but nature poetry. This is particularly true when the definition of what constitutes nature writing is limited to work about the pastoral or the wild.

Camille T. Dungy has selected 180 poems from 93 poets that provide unique perspectives on American social and literary history to broaden our concept of nature poetry and African American poetics. This collection features major writers such as Phillis Wheatley, Rita Dove, Yusef Komunyakaa, Gwendolyn Brooks, Sterling Brown, Robert Hayden, Wanda Coleman, Natasha Trethewey, and Melvin B. Tolson as well as newer talents such as Douglas Kearney, Major Jackson, and Janice Harrington. Included are poets writing out of slavery, Reconstruction, the Harlem Renaissance, the Black Arts Movement, and late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century African American poetic movements.

Black Nature brings to the fore a neglected and vital means of considering poetry by African Americans and nature-related poetry as a whole.

Durante mil años han caído las cenizas y nada florece. Durante mil años los skaa han sido esclavizados y viven sumidos en un miedo inevitable. Durante mil años el Lord Legislador reina con un poder absoluto gracias al terror, a sus poderes e inmortalidad. Le ayudan «obligadores» e «inquisidores», junto a la poderosa magia de la «alomancia». Pero los nobles, con frecuencia, han tenido trato sexual con jóvenes skaa y, aunque la ley lo prohíbe, algunos de sus bastardos han sobrevivido y heredado los poderes alománticos: son los «nacidos de la bruma» (mistborns). Ahora, Kelsier, el «superviviente», el único que ha logrado huir de los Pozos de Hathsin, ha encontrado a Vin, una pobre chica skaa con mucha suerte… Tal vez los dos unidos a la rebelión que los skaa intentan desde hace mil años puedan cambiar el mundo y la atroz dominación del Lord Legislador.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

For a thousand years ash fell and no flowers bloomed; the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear of the Lord Ruler that reigned with absolute power, divinely invincible. Hope had been gone so long no one remembered it, until a half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler’s most hellish prison.

A national bestseller when it first appeared in 1963, The Fire Next Time galvanized the nation and gave passionate voice to the emerging civil rights movement. At once a powerful evocation of James Baldwin’s early life in Harlem and a disturbing examination of the consequences of racial injustice, the book is an intensely personal and provocative document. It consists of two “letters,” written on the occasion of the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation, that exhort Americans, both black and white, to attack the terrible legacy of racism. Described by The New York Times Book Review as “sermon, ultimatum, confession, deposition, testament, and chronicle…all presented in searing, brilliant prose,” The Fire Next Time stands as a classic of our literature.



Medieval Exegesis: The Four Senses of Scripture, Vol. 1 (Ressourcement: Retrieval & Renewal in Catholic Thought) (Ressourcement: Retrieval and Renewal in Catholic Thought (RRRCT))

Originally published in French as Exégèse médiévale, Henri de Lubac’s multivolume study of medieval exegesis and theology has remained one of the most significant works of modern biblical studies. Available now for the first time in English, this long-sought-after volume is an essential addition to the library of those whose study leads them into the difficult field of biblical interpretation.

The first volume in de Lubac’s multivolume work begins his comprehensive historical and literary study of the way Scripture was interpreted by the church of the Latin Middle Ages.

Examining the prominent commentators of the Middle Ages and their texts, de Lubac discusses the medieval approach to biblical interpretation that sought “the four senses” of Scripture, especially the dominant practice of attempting to uncover Scripture’s allegorical meaning. Though Bible interpreters from the Enlightenment era on have criticized such allegorizing as part of the “naivete of the Middle Ages,” de Lubac insists that a full understanding of this ancient Christian exegesis provides important insights for us today.
