In 1967 Milton studies was divided into two camps: one claiming (per Blake and Shelley) that Milton was of the devil's party, the other claiming (per Addison and C. S. Lewis) that the poet's sympathies were obviously with God and his loyal angels. Fish has reconciled the two camps by subsuming their claims in a single overarching thesis.

For C. S. Lewis, merriment was serious business, and like no book before it, Surprised by Laughter explains why. Author Terry Lindvall takes readers on a highly amusing and deeply meaningful journey through the life and letters of one of the most beloved Christian thinkers and writers. As Lindvall shows, the unique magic of Lewis's approach was his belief that explosive and infectious joy dwells deep in the heart of Christian faith. Readers can never fully understand Lewis, his life or his legacy until they learn to laugh with him.

How can it be? How can salvation be God’s gift of grace through faith and not by works; yet there are tons of Bible verses that connect eternal life directly to obedience and faithfulness? It was a great aid to me to see how both are given, and they do not conflict at all. I have written several papers to show this, and they have been helpful to a number of people. So I am enclosing these into a book form. Each paper shows in various ways how both the faith and obedience verses are valid and precious. “According to Scripture … very good … I agree with everything in it … I don’t think we will ever fully know God’s part and our part, but this is the closest I have ever seen … It is the best bridge I have seen … I feel it is a unique and much needed contribution.” (concerning Paradox). —Dr. Robertson McQuilkin, president emeritus of Columbia International University “Very thought-provoking! I’ve been aware of this Paradox, but having it presented like this highlights the grace-works elements in our faith which must be confronted. It also broadens one’s appreciation for the Word.” (concerning Paradox). —Dave Scovill, missionary, translator, missions counselor, administrator, and writer

Jesus Is God—Surprised! This revelatory book focuses on the undeniable and yet surprising truth that Jesus is God. It parallels the names, characteristics, and attributes of God the Father, to that of His Son, Jesus Christ. You will be convinced from the scriptures, inspirationally mined from the Word of God and spoken directly by God the Father to His people from Genesis to Revelation and by the Lord Jesus in the New Testament, that Jesus is more than the Son of God. All scriptural conversations attest that this stranger from Galilee is indeed God, Elohim, I Am, Yahweh, Jehovah, Adonai, El Shaddai, Shammah, in fact all the attributes of His Father. Your spiritual understanding and consciousness of the deity of Jesus Christ will transcend to another dimension. Like Zacchaeus in Luke 19 who wanted “to see who Jesus is,” this book is a very simple way in which the Lord is asking you to dine with Him. After the sumptuous divine meal of this book, you are going to be fully convinced that Jesus is God. Information is simply head knowledge, but revelation from this book is internal. Enjoy!

Between Mutiny And Obedience

Literary and historical conventions have long painted the experience of soldiers during World War I as simple victimization. Leonard Smith, however, argues that a complex dialogue of resistance and negotiation existed between French soldiers and their own commanders. In this case study of wartime military culture, Smith analyzes the experience of the French Fifth Infantry Division in both pitched battle and trench warfare. The division established a distinguished fighting record from 1914 to 1916, yet proved in 1917 the most mutinous division in the entire French army, only to regain its elite reputation in 1918. Drawing on sources from ordinary soldiers to well-known commanders such as General Charles Mangin, the author explains how the mutinies of 1917 became an explicit manifestation of an implicit struggle that took place within the French army over the whole course of the war. Smith pays particular attention to the pivotal role of noncommissioned and junior officers, who both exercised command authority and shared the physical perils of men in the lower ranks. He shows that "soldiers," broadly defined, learned to determine rules of how they would and would not fight the war, and imposed these rules on the command structure itself. By altering the parameters of command authority in accordance with their own perceived interests, soldiers and commanders negotiated a behavioral space between mutiny and obedience. Originally published in 1994. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
