"In Pietro DiDonato, the Master Builder, author Matthew Diomede explores the role of the immigrant Italian-American writer in twentieth-century American letters by examining the life and work of the novelist, dramatist, and essayist Pietro DiDonato. Diomede uses the text of two lengthy interviews with the writer to discover the themes of love, death, women, beauty, rebellion, and the mystery of life that can be found in DiDonato's works. He also touches on DiDonato's writing process." "Diomede then incorporates these concepts into a critical analysis of several of DiDonato's works, including his novels, This Woman, Christ in Concrete, and Three Circles of Light; a play, The Love of Annunziata; two biographies, Immigrant Saint: The Life of Mother Cabrini and The Penitent; and an essay, Christ in Plastic. Central to Diomede's analysis are two concepts of analyst Carl Jung - that dreams can prove valuable in understanding ourselves and that full human realization occurs when a person takes on a father (male) component and a mother (female) component. Diomede also explores the development of DiDonato's autobiographical character, Paul/Paolo, in three novels and a play. He then demonstrates the value of dreams by tracing Paul's dream/nightmare in Christ in Concrete through DiDonato's oeuvre to the character's fullest development in This Woman, the pinnacle of DiDonato's work. Besides exploring the Jungian concepts in DiDonato's biographies, Diomede demonstrates how love is the "concrete" that is central to the author's work."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Story Of Christ In The Ethics Of Paul

In this book Fowl examines the role played by three poetic texts, Phil. 2.6-11, Col. 1.15-20, and 1Tim. 3.16 in the arguments of their epistles. Rather than functioning as criteria of christological orthodoxy, these poetic narrations of Christ's person and work are used by Paul to support various ethical positions. For Paul and the Christians he addresses, these stories of Christ are exemplars for the life and practice of the church.

Contributions of Italian Americans are indeed represented in all aspects of society. Filmmakers and authors manifest their awareness of italianitá, their Italian American identity. Numerous recent studies call for a different, multicultural perspective by which American literature and culture should be viewed. From the Margin addresses that need and explores the notion of italianitá in film and literature, both through creative works and scholarly essays. This anthology, hailed as a significant contribution to American ethnic studies, features the short stories, poems, and plays of more than thirty Italian American artists. Drawing on their individual and collective backgrounds and experience, these writers convey another vision of American life. A section of critical essays by established scholars in the field, with topics ranging from specific works and authors to broad literary movements and film studies, analyzes the Italian American phenomenon and the role of ethnicity in literature. The extensive bibliography treats creative works, critical essays, and films dealing with the Italian American experience and promises to be an invaluable research tool.

In the context of the present-day religious pluralism and meeting of religions, we cannot afford to ignore the subject of religious phenomenology. Non-Christian religious traditions have confronted in their own way the problems that arise from human conditions with respect to the meaning, and goal of life. The answers to these problems given by the phenomenology of religions cannot be lightly disposed of as irrelevant to the theological reflections.

Human Subjectivity In Christ In Dietrich Bonhoeffer S Theology

Jacob Phillipps presents a critical study of a neglected aspect of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's theology: his writing on human subjectivity, self-reflection, and individual identity 'in Christ'. In response to the rise of chronic self-representation through digital technology, Phillipps argues that Bonhoeffer presents a radical challenge, maintaining that – from the perspective of Christian theology - there is something deeply negative about beholding representations of oneself. Bonhoeffer instead holds that discipleship means adopting a posture of radical agnosticism toward one's own identity. Phillips focuses on the interrelation of 'simplicity' and 'reflection' in theological cognition and ethical deliberation, showing a wider significance in contemporary theological anthropology, soteriology and ethics. By following the tradition of reading Bonhoeffer in relation to the philosophical sources, such as Wüstenberg , Janz, Whitson-Floyd, Marsh, Zimmermann, Gregor, Phillips highlights the ways in which Bonhoeffer's work relates to modern debates in epistemology and ethics generally, and that of Wilhelm Dilthey and hermeneutical phenomenology in particular. This volume offers a detailed theological analysis of the themes of self-identity, human subjectivity, and self-understanding, which are highly pertinent for contemporary society.

This volume explores the relationship between literature and translation from three perspectives: the creative dimensions of the translation process; the way texts circulate between languages; and the way texts are received in translation by new audiences. The distinctiveness of the volume lies in the fact that it considers these fundamental aspects of literary translation together and in terms of their interconnections. Contributors examine a wide variety of texts, including world classics, poetry, genre fiction, transnational literature, and life writing from around the world. Both theoretical and empirical issues are covered, with some contributors approaching the topic as practitioners of literary translation, and others writing from within the academy.

Daniel Migliore's Faith Seeking Understanding has been a standard introduction to Christian theology for more than a decade. The book's presentation of traditional doctrine in freshly contemporary ways, its concern to hear and critically engage new voices in theology, and its creative and accessible style have kept it one of the most stimulating, balanced, and readable guides to theology available. This second edition of Faith Seeking Understanding features improvements from cover to cover. Besides updating and expanding the entire text of the book, Migliore has added two completely new chapters. The first, "Confessing Jesus Christ in Context," explores the unique contributions to Christian theology made by recent theologians working in the African American, Asian American, Latin American, Hispanic, feminist, womanist, and mujerista traditions. The second new chapter, "The Finality of Jesus Christ and Religious Pluralism," addresses the growing interest in the relationship of Christianity to other religions and their adherents. Migliore's three delightful theological dialogues are followed by a new appendix, an extensive glossary of theological terms, making the book even more useful to students seeking to understand the history, themes, and challenges of Christian belief.

Their personal stories testify to a wider collective novel focused around the myth and the dream of "making America." Through their pages and their critical presentation, the reader is brought to discover the literary dignity of this production, clearly linked to the popular roots of nineteenth-century Italian culture, but at the same time confronted with the traumas and the different realities of a new society. The main themes are voiced - immigration, labor conditions, family ties, the lure and snares of the big city, its multiethnicity."--BOOK JACKET.
