Interweaving the personal, private voice with scholarly, public intent, Nelson and the other contributors argue for a more interactive and cooperative approach to the teaching, reading, critiquing, and writing of literature. These essays are a direct result of the desire by many women within the academic community to break free of what has been called the “masculine” or “adversary” mode of literary criticism. Private Voices, Public Lives is of critical importance to readers, teachers, reviewers, and critics. The essays incorporate ideas on current issues of autobiography, memoir, women's voice, reader response, diversity, life writing, and gender.

What does geography have to do with the incarnation of God and with our spiritual lives as Christians? We will embark on a theological road trip that explores how geographies are at the heart of understanding of God's incarnation in the world. It is no surprise to Christians that the center of the incarnation is the person of Jesus Christ--God in flesh made manifest. However, it might be a stretch for some Christians to imagine that the promise that God has become flesh is not only in a person but also in a place: in the creation. Christians need to expand what incarnation means and what it means to be created in the image of God so that the scope of God's creative and redemptive action and work indeed reaches to the scope of all things: from the outer reaches of space to the inner reaches of our hearts. To be the creatures of God that God calls us to be requires a kind of dual citizenship: within the details of our daily life, attending to the needs of our neighbors, simultaneously knowing we are part of a greater cosmos whose future is still unfolding.

A landmark work in the study of conversion. With the tools of scholarship and as a seasoned practitioner, Richard Peace explores the New Testament understanding of the turning points of conversion -- from the night of our captivities to the light of Christ, into the church and out to the neighbor in need. Our contemporary efforts in evangelism have much to learn from this full-orbed view of conversion. - Gabriel Fackre, on back cover.

When Spiritual But Not Religious Is Not Enough

The phrase "I'm spiritual but not religious" has become a cliché. It's easy to find God amid the convenience of self-styled spirituality--but is it possible (and more worthwhile) to search for God through religion? Minister and celebrated author Lillian Daniel gives a new spin on church with stories of what a life of faith can really be: weird, wondrous, and well worth trying. From a rock-and-roller sexton to a BB gun-toting grandma, a church service attended by animals to a group of unlikely theologians at Sing Sing, Daniel shows us a portrait of church that is flawed, fallible--and deeply faithful. With poignant reflections and sly wit, Daniel invites all of us to step out of ourselves, dare to become a community, and encounter a God greater than we could ever invent. Humorous and sincere, this is a book about people finding God in the most unexpected of places: prisons, airports, yoga classes, committee meetings, and, strangest of all, right there in church.

Robyn Davidson verwirklicht mit siebenundzwanzig Jahren einen scheinbar verrückten Traum: die australische Wüste zu durchqueren, begleitet von vier wilden Kamelen und einem Hund. Neun Monate wird es dauern, bis sie schließlich den Indischen Ozean erreicht. Neun Monate in der Wildnis, umgeben von unerträglicher Hitze, giftigen Tieren und einer Landschaft, der die Menschen gleichgültig sind. Doch im Verlauf der Reise gelingt es Robyn, ihr altes Leben mehr und mehr hinter sich zu lassen. Jenseits der Zivilisation und auf sich allein gestellt erkennt sie, was sie wirklich zum Glücklichsein braucht – bis die Begegnung mit dem Fotografen Rick sie aus der frisch gewonnenen Balance zu bringen droht ... «Eines der schönsten Bücher über das Entdecken und das Reisen.» (Doris Lessing) «Leuchtend und lebendig... Davidson ist eine wahre Abenteurerin und eine geborene Schriftstellerin.» (New Yorker) «Kein Buch für Pauschal-Touristen, auch keins für Latzhosen-Feministinnen. Aber unbedingt eines für Menschen, die unruhig geblieben sind.» (Die Zeit) «Eine packende Geschichte über Herausforderung und Mut, ein farbenprächtiges Bild Australiens, gezeichnet von einer scharfsinnigen und empfindsamen Beobachterin – und die Geschichte einer inneren Reise.» (Sydney Morning Herald)
