Item Description: Basic Books, 2006. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: What gave Christopher Columbus the confidence in 1492 to set out across the Atlantic Ocean? What persuaded the king and queen of Spain to commission the voyage? It would be convenient to believe that Columbus and his men were uniquely courageous. A more reasonable explanation, however, is that Columbus was heir to a body of knowledge about seas and ships acquired at great cost over many centuries. Fish on Friday tells a new story of the discovery of America. In Brian Fagan's view, that discovery is the product of the long sweep of history: the spread of Christianity and the radical cultural changes it brought to Europe, the interaction of economic necessity with a changing climate, and generations of unknown fishermen who explored the North Atlantic in the centuries before Columbus. The Church's tradition of not eating meats on holy days created a vast market for fish that could not be fully satisfied by fish farms, better boats, or new preservation techniques. Then, when climate change in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries diminished fish stocks off Norway and Iceland, fishermen were forced to range ever farther to the west - eventually discovering incredibly rich shoals within sight of the Nova Scotia coast. In Ireland in 1490, Columbus could well have heard about this unknown land. The rest is history. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0465022847

Item Description: Counterpoint, 2010. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In this mesmerizing debut novel, Michael Sledge creates an intimate portrait of the beloved poet Elizabeth Bishop -- of her life in Brazil and her relationship with her lover, the dazzling, aristocratic Lota de Macedo Soares. Sledge artfully draws from Bishop's lifelong correspondences and biography to imagine the poet's intensely private world, revealing the literary genius who lived in conflict with herself both as a writer and as a woman. A seemingly idyllic existence in Soares's glass house in the jungle gives way to the truth of Bishop's lifelong battle with alcoholism, as well as her eventual status as one of modernism's most prominent writers. Though connected to many of the most famous cultural and political figures of the era, Soares too is haunted by her own demons. As their secrets unfold, the sensuous landscape of Rio de Janeiro, the rhythms of the samba and the bossa nova, and the political turmoil of 1950s Brazil envelop Bishop in a world she never expected to inhabit. The More I Owe You is a vivid portrait of two brilliant women whose love for one another pushes them to accomplish enduring works of art. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_1582435766

Summary: "Gribben provides rich analytical context in this compelling and a much-needed historical look at prophecy fiction. Writing the Rapture brings both the popular and trans-Atlantic side of the history of dispensationalism to life."--Amy Frykholm, author of Rapture Culture: Left Behind in Evangelical America "Crawford Gribben has accomplished an unusual feat in this fine book: he has shown why apparently "ephemeral" literature should be taken seriously and why doing so allows for very serious reflection on American religious history in general. Gribben, from Ireland, has written wisely and well on a profoundly American phenomenon." --Mark Noll, Professor of History, University of Notre Dame "How have novels depicting the end times become so popular in contemporary America? Crawford Gribben analyses the process, carefully and sympathetically, in terms of the changing evangelical perceptions of the twentieth century." --David Bebbington, Professor of History, University of Stirling. "Gribben's book is a must-read for any scholar interested in prophecy fiction specifically and twentieth and twenty-first-century Protestant fiction more generally. .This book will become a standard work for all interested in more contemporary Protestant publishing. Religious and cultural historians, as well as literary critics, will find great rewards nestled on almost every page of his work." --American Historical Review "Gribben's study is commendable for its clear descriptions of the early development and later phenomenal success of fictional depictions of the rapture. It undertakes the complicated task of placing the novels against the backdrop of American evangelical and fundamentalist traditions, maintaining a balance of perspectives throughout."--H-Pentecostalism: H-Net Reviews "The most comprehensive and informative examination to date of 'prophecy fiction'. Writing the Rapture is a must read for anyone with a scholarly interest in prophecy fiction, with the evolution of dispensationalism, or with the history of American evangelicalism." --Nova Religio.

Brand New Book. there ll be nae cries o misery jist the creakin soun o openin doors - Read these poems and be inspired. In the wake of the 1979 Devolution Referendum, followed by the impact of Thatcherite policies on Scottish society, many Scottish writers and intellectuals began articulating the distinctiveness of Scottish literary, cultural, social and political traditions and outlooks. Some joined popular political campaigns, from opposing the Poll-Tax and Trident to the Campaign for a Scottish Assembly, which led to a Scottish Parliament. Many now look forward to new possibilities for the future with more confidence in the value and importance of our country s culture and politics, as these poems reveal. Whatever the outcome of Scotland s Independence Referendum on 18 September 2014, a better Scotland is possible. Across every aspect of life in Scotland - housing, inequality, life expectancy, health, education, crime, sectarianism, localism and more - we all know that a better Scotland is possible. And then there s Trident. And the Bedroom Tax. And the Democratic Deficit. And on it goes. Bookseller Inventory # AA89781910021101

Item Description: Catholic University of America Press, 1998. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: This collection of seventeen patristic studies is dedicated to Thomas Halton in recognition of his signal services to the field as editor, bibliographer, and interpreter. The contributors are a distinguished and ecumenical group of scholars of diverse interests and approaches. Divided into five main subdivisions -- Exegesis, Rhetoric, Anthropology: Modern and Ancient, Augustine, and the Transmission of Texts and Learning -- this volume offers much insight into the development and the current practice of research in the fields of Patristic and Late Antique Studies.The first section deals with elements of the theory and practice of exegesis from the second through the fifth century and the use of patristic commentaries in the early medieval period; each chapter highlights the central role attributed to traditional Christian belief and moral values in the interpretation of the sacred text. The second section offers commentary and analysis of addresses delivered by Christian bishops of the Greek East: Lenten,discourse, festal homilies, a semi-juridic apologia. The third section studies ancient concepts of the individual and social identity in the light modern sociological and anthropological theory; the great influence of the social sciences upon recent developments in Late Antique Studies is apparent throughout the section. The fourth examines aspects of Augustine's roles as Christian philosopher and Catholic churchman. The final section evaluates the transmission, transformation, and adaptation to new purposes of the cultural achievements of antiquity, both pagan and Christian, in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.This volume will be of particular interest to students of theology, church history, and Early Christian Studies. Nine papers deal predominantly with Greek, and eight with Latin, sources. Most of the ancient passages are accompanied by translation. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0813209005
