A book of wisdom and life. Welcome to Alice Taylor’s garden: ‘Just inside the gate, hand-painted on a rickety piece of timber, is a little sign: Miracles only grow where you plant them. I saw it in a garden centre and could not resist it. This garden is full of my lack of resistance. I have no in-depth gardening knowledge and I work on impulse. ‘My gardening expertise, acquired through trial and error, is nurtured by the unbelievable pleasure that I have discovered in simply digging the earth. Where does that satisfaction come from? Maybe buried deep in each of us is the secret need to cultivate the soil. Digging the earth breathes life back into us.’ A reflective and uplifting account by Alice Taylor of her love of nature and gardening.

This apartment is his world. Something grows within the walls and within his being. Her world lies beyond these walls. Beyond him. Consumed by a malignant jealousy, he watches as she fades away. Trying to hold on to her. To reach her. To restore her. He must struggle against the garden and its gifts. The buried remnants of his failure. The fruit of a twisted tree. Find his way back to her. "The Gift Garden is unlike any book I've read before. It has the claustrophobia of Beckett and the displaced dread of Kafka - but also a truly original sense of imagery, dream, and lush language. Mooney has done something new here, and the reader won't be disappointed with the result. A beautiful, original book." Amber Sparks, author of The Unfinished World & Other Stories. "Kenny Mooney's The Gift Garden is a dense, claustrophobic vision, oozing dread, infection, spilled viscera. This is a literature without compromise." Robert Kloss, author of The Revelator.

An Old Testament Theology

The Old Testament is more than a religious history of the nation of Israel. It is more than a portrait gallery of heroes of the faith. It is even more than a theological and prophetic backdrop to the New Testament. Beyond these, the Old Testament is inspired revelation of the very nature, character, and works of God. As renowned Old Testament scholar Bruce Waltke writes in the preface of this book, the Old Testament’s every sentence is “fraught with theology, worthy of reflection.” This book is the result of decades of reflection informed by an extensive knowledge of the Hebrew language, the best of critical scholarship, a deep understanding of both the content and spirit of the Old Testament, and a thoroughly evangelical conviction. Taking a narrative, chronological approach to the text, Waltke employs rhetorical criticism to illuminate the theologies of the biblical narrators. Through careful study, he shows that the unifying theme of the Old Testament is the “breaking in of the kingdom of God.” This theme helps the reader better understand not only the Old Testament, but also the New Testament, the continuity of the entire Bible, and ultimately, God himself.

This book started as a single poem by Judith Anne Dellosso to proclaim her spirituality and dedication to the Lord. As inspiration struck, Judith began writing more poems. She would always share her poems with friends. However, it took some encouragement from those same friends to finally get her to compile these materials into a book form. As you read through these beautiful poems, you will discover the deep faith, loyalty and bond Judith feels towards the Lord. The joy spoken in these poems makes it difficult to believe that someone who has endured the suffering and setbacks that Judith has experienced wrote them. Although the poems speak of worship and happiness, Judith has not always enjoyed the "charmed" life she expounds in her poetry. It is her faith, naivete, generosity and warmth, which make her poetry so beautiful. As you read, you will begin to know some of the happiness Judith feels by simply being close to the Lord. Judith is a woman who will give up her supper to make sure I have food. She gives freely of herself every day of the year—not just on holidays. Because she is so special to me, I volunteered to do the layout and typesetting of the poems. This short statement about the author is "My Gift" to Judith—a one-of-a-kind woman who honors me by calling me "friend". Enjoy!

The Gift Of Adversity

Now in paperback—this acclaimed book from Norman Rosenthal, the New York Times–bestselling author and research psychiatrist, shows how life’s disappointments and difficulties provide us with the lessons we need to become happier and more resilient human beings. Winner of the 2014 Nautilus Award represents “Better Books for a Better World”—the Silver Award in the category of Heroic Journeys. Adversity is an irreducible fact of life. Although we can and should learn from all experiences, both positive and negative, bestselling author Dr. Norman E. Rosenthal, believes that adversity is by far the best teacher most of us will ever encounter. Whether the adversity one experiences is the result of poor decision-making, a desire to test one’s mettle, or plain bad luck, Rosenthal believes life’s most important lessons—from the value of family to the importance of occasionally cutting corners—can be best learned from it. Running counter to society’s current prevailing message that “excellence” must always be aspired to, and failure or mistakes of any sort are to be avoided at all costs, Rosenthal shows that engaging with our own failures and defeats is one of the only ways we are able to live authentic and meaningful lives, and that each different type of adversity carries its own challenges and has the potential to yield its own form of wisdom. Using stories from his own life—including his childhood in apartheid-era South Africa, his years after suffering a violent attack from a stranger, and his career as a psychiatrist—as well as case studies and discussions with well-known figures like Viktor Frankl and David Lynch, Rosenthal shows that true innovation, emotional resilience, wisdom, and dignity can only come from confronting and understanding the adversity we have experienced. Even when life is hardest, there are meanings to be found, riches to be harvested, and gifts that can last a lifetime. Rosenthal illustrates his message through a series of compact, memorable chapters, each one drawn from episodes in the lives of his patients, colleagues, or himself, and concluded with a take-away maxim on the lesson learned.
