In her fourth work of fiction, Sue Monk Kidd brings her acclaimed narrative gifts to imagine the story of a young woman named Ana. Raised in a wealthy family in Sepphoris with ties to the ruler of Galilee, she is rebellious and ambitious, a relentless seeker with a brilliant, curious mind and a daring spirit. She yearns for a pursuit worthy of her life, but finds no outlet for her considerable talents. Defying the expectations placed on women, she engages in furtive scholarly pursuits and writes secret narratives about neglected and silenced women. When she meets the eighteen-year-old Jesus, each is drawn to and enriched by the other's spiritual and philosophical ideas. He becomes a floodgate for her intellect, but also the awakener of her heart.

Here, Ana's pent-up longings intensify amid the turbulent resistance to the Roman occupation of Israel, partially led by her charismatic adopted brother, Judas. She is sustained by her indomitable aunt Yaltha, who is searching for her long-lost daughter, as well as by other women, including her friend Tabitha, who is sold into slavery after she was raped, and Phasaelis, the shrewd wife of Herod Antipas. Ana's impetuous streak occasionally invites danger. When one such foray forces her to flee Nazareth for her safety shortly before Jesus's public ministry begins, she makes her way with Yaltha to Alexandria, where she eventually finds refuge and purpose in unexpected surroundings.

Book excerpt: La autora best seller Sue Monk-Kidd nos traslada a la Judea del siglo I y nos relata la Historia que ya conocemos con la voz de Ana, la mujer de Jesús. «Me llamo Ana y fui la esposa de Jesús, hijo de José de Nazaret.» Ana es una joven de una familia judía acomodada con inquietudes y sueños. Su vida cambia cuando conoce a Jesús, un joven rebelde que se opone pacíficamente a la dominación de Roma, que no hace milagros pero sí ayuda a pobres y prostitutas y que se convierte en líder casi a su pesar. Pero lo que se cuenta aquí no se la historia que ya conocemos sino la de las mujeres en una época en la que la inteligencia, el ingenio y la inquietud, eran propiedad de los hombres. Una reivindicación feminista en una novela en la que la riqueza de detalles históricos y la ambientación magistral llevan al lector hasta un paisaje mil veces explorado pero que aparece totalmente nuevo.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Winter Hearts: Caroline knew that she should look away, but it felt like his brown eyes had captivated hers and would not let go of them. Just as she would not have been able to leave, if he had held on to her wrist. The notion was absurd, and she pried her eyes from his to look at his dark grey jacket instead. The fit was perfect, she could tell. Only the finest tailors in London could achieve a fit like that. As a blizzard catches Caroline in an inn without money for food or a room, she sees no other option than to find a man to spend the night with. In the crowded public room of the inn, she chooses Hugh, a wealthy man that she seems to have an instant connection with. He lets her stay in his room and when she becomes ill during the night, he hires a doctor for her. The attraction between them is undeniable, but Caroline feels certain that Hugh only wants her to be his mistress. Nevertheless, as her feelings starts to evolve, her hope starts to grow. A Second Wedding Night: "What is going to happen tomorrow night is not going to be pleasant," Millie's mother said on the eve before her wedding. Millie sat back startled but did not say anything. "It will most likely hurt," her mother went on as she was looking at a candle instead of Millie. "But your husband won't want to know about that. He will want to take his own pleasure from your body. You can only pray that he merely wants to do it once." Millie felt her jaw go slack. That sounded even more terrifying than what she had been expecting. After Millie receives disastrous advice from her mother on the night before her wedding, the marriage between her and Charles Montagu, the sixth duke of Camborne, takes a different turn than what it might have. Given that the two of them genuinely like each other and are attracted to each other. Ten years later they have formed a friendship: Millie helps Charles with his speeches for the House of Lords and Charles finds that he has the perfect wife except for one aspect: what happens or rather doesn't happen in the bedroom. A chance encounter at Charles' mistress makes it possible for them to finally talk their marriage over. Giving them the opportunity for a second wedding night. An Impotent Rake: The former courtesan Alicia has spent the past three years building a business as a woman that helped people of the upper classes with their sexual difficulties. Even though she is used to receiving a number of people, she is surprised when one of London's biggest rakes, Miles Stanhope, the seventh earl of Lindley, seeks her out, needing her help to cure his impotence before his wedding. The two had slept together once six years ago and as they start to work on Miles' problem, they find that the attraction is still there. They start an affair, but it quickly becomes apparent to both of them that there is more to it than simply sex. But can a rake that doesn't believe in love fall in love himself?

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Delving into the widespread, contemporary longing for a more serious and communal experience of Christianity, this book provides important theoretical underpinnings and casts a vision for a new monasticism within the Wesleyan tradition. Elaine Heath and Scott Kisker call for the planting of neo-monastic churches which embody the Wesleyan vision of holiness in postmodern contexts. This book also points toward some vital shifts that are necessary in theological education in order to equip pastors to lead such communities. Longing for Spring helps Wesleyans of all stripes understand the theory and praxis necessary for planting neo-monastic communities as a new model of the church that is particularly important in the postmodern context. The authors write in an engaging, conversational style that is conversant with postmodern culture, yet thoroughly informed by critical research. Heath and Kisker boldly challenge the imagination of the church, both within and beyond Wesleyan traditions, to consider the possibility of revitalizing the church through the new monasticism.

This book was released on 2011 with total page 392 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Annually during the months of autumn, Bengal hosts three interlinked festivals to honor its most important goddesses: Durga, Kali, and Jagaddhatri. While each of these deities possesses a distinct iconography, myth, and character, they are all martial. Durga, Kali, and Jagaddhatri often demand blood sacrifice as part of their worship and offer material and spiritual benefits to their votaries. Richly represented in straw, clay, paint, and decoration, they are similarly displayed in elaborately festooned temples, thronged by thousands of admirers. The first book to recount the history of these festivals and their revelry, rivalry, and nostalgic power, this volume marks an unprecedented achievement in the mapping of a major public event. Rachel Fell McDermott describes the festivals' origins and growth under British rule. She identifies their iconographic conventions and carnivalesque qualities and their relationship to the fierce, Tantric sides of ritual practice. McDermott confronts controversies over the tradition of blood sacrifice and the status-seekers who compete for symbolic capital. Expanding her narrative, she takes readers beyond Bengal's borders to trace the transformation of the goddesses and their festivals across the world. McDermott's work underscores the role of holidays in cultural memory, specifically the Bengali evocation of an ideal, culturally rich past. Under the thrall of the goddess, the social, political, economic, and religious identity of Bengalis takes shape.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: At present the battle over who defines our future is being waged most publicly by secular and religious fundamentalists. Hope and the Longing for Utopia offers an alternative position, disclosing a conceptual path toward potential worlds that resist a limited view of human potential and the gift of religion. In addition to outlining the value of embracing unknown potentialities, these twelve interdisciplinary essays explore why it has become crucial that we commit to hoping for values that resist traditional ideological commitments. Contextualized by contemporary writing on utopia, and drawing from a wealth of times and cultures ranging from Calvin's Geneva to early twentieth-century Japanese children's stories to Hollywood cinema, these essays cumulatively disclose the fundamental importance of resisting tantalizing certainties while considering the importance of the unknown and unknowable. Beginning with a set of four essays outlining the importance of hope and utopia as diagnostic concepts, and following with four concrete examples, the collection ends with a set of essays that provide theological speculations on the need to embrace finitude and limitations in a world increasingly enframed by secularizing impulses. Overall, this book discloses how hope and utopia illuminate ways to think past simplified wishes for the future.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When hopes for motherhood are deferred... Childlessness remains a taboo topic in today’s culture, especially in Christian circles. Many women feel isolated, ashamed, or uncertain of how to reconcile this trial with a loving God. The death of the dream of motherhood—whether from infertility, barrenness, miscarriage, or the loss of a child—is one of the hardest journeys women can walk through. In Longing for Motherhood, Chelsea Patterson Sobolik speaks to these burdens specifically. She shares vulnerably about her own journey of childlessness and how she has ultimately come to view her story through the lens of Scripture and our hope in Christ. While remaining tender and empathetic toward suffering and longing, she discusses the comfort we have in knowing that the Lord is sovereign over all, and that His love is sufficient to carry us through any and every situation. A timely book for women struggling with childlessness, as well as for pastors, friends, and family who want to care for them well, Longing for Motherhood is a tender, truthful companion for a difficult journey.
