The Place Within explores not only my personal experiences, but my attempts to look at the world through the eyes of someone else. This collection is a journey into some of the darkest corners of our world and stretches towards the bright fields in our universe. After reading these poems, I hope that the reader will look at others less subjectively than I have and see that we all have beautiful scars. More importantly, to discover that God is not hard to find... you just have to gaze into the place within; realize who you have buried, fess up and surrender.

A Globe and Mail Best Book It would take many lifetimes, it was said to me during my first visit, to see all of India. The desperation must have shown on my face to absorb and digest all I possibly could. This was not something I had articulated or resolved; and yet I recall an anxiety as I travelled the length and breadth of the country, senses raw to every new experience, that even in the distraction of a blink I might miss something profoundly significant. I was not born in India, nor were my parents; that might explain much in my expectation of that visit. Yet how many people go to the homeland of their grandparents with such a heartload of expectation and momentousness; such a desire to find themselves in everything they see? Is it only India that clings thus, to those who’ve forsaken it; is this why Indians in a foreign land seem always so desperate to seek each other out? What was India to me? The inimitable M.G. Vassanji turns his eye to India, the homeland of his ancestors, in this powerfully moving tale of family and country. Part travelogue, part history, A Place Within is M.G. Vassanji’s intelligent and beautifully written journey to explore where he belongs. From the Hardcover edition.

Indian cities are mechanisms for social engineering—more powerful than anything we have seen before. They will transform this country. A Place in the Shade explores architectural and urban issues in India, from the house as a machine for dealing with our often hostile climate, to the metaphysical role of architecture as a Model of the Cosmos. This reflective, provocative and consistently readable collection of essays argues that our habitat must respond to the overriding parameters of climate, culture and financial resources and that our physical environment should accommodate notions of inclusion and diversity, and that priceless quality of synergy which characterizes a city. Charles Correa identifies the defining issues of the urbanization process that is so rapidly transforming India. He writes, ‘You cannot look at cities without wandering into architecture on the one hand and politics on the other.’ Tragically, over the last few decades, urban real estate has become the primary source of financing for political parties and the politicians who run them. But our towns and cities are assets too precious to be squandered in this manner. Like the wheat fields of Punjab and the coal fields of Bihar, cities are a crucial part of our national wealth. Their success—or their failure—will determine our future. Indian cities are mechanisms for social engineeringmore powerful than anything we have seen before. They will transform this country. A Place in the Shade explores architectural and urban issues in India, from the house as a machine for dealing with our often hostile climate, to the metaphysical role of architecture as a Model of the Cosmos.

Narrative Elements In The Double Tradition

Author : Stephen Hultgren
ISBN : 3110175258
Genre : Religion
File Size : 34.5 MB
Format : PDF

For a long time mainstream gospel scholarship has assumed that the so-called Q material (the "double tradition") in Matthew and Luke represents a document or tradition that was almost exclusively orientated towards the sayings of Jesus of Nazareth, with little interest in a narrative about him. This book argues, on the contrary, that the narrative material in the double tradition existed from the very beginning within a coherent Jesus narrative that ran from his baptism to his passion. Far from being inserted by Matthew and Luke into the framework of Mark, the double tradition is structured on the very same narrative framework as the Gospel of Mark (a framework that predates Mark). Conventional dichotomies in gospel origins, the historical Jesus, and the history of early Christianity are thus drawn into question.

Women in Their Place examines 1 Corinthians 11-14 within the larger context of gender models and sanctuary spaces by relating exegesis to space, gender and discourse theories, to comparative archeological and historical material, and to ancient Greek, Roman, and Jewish cultural and cultic practices. It establishes a distinction between private, public and sacred/sanctuary space and argues that, in much of 1 Corinthians, Paul is concerned with the marking of firm boundaries around the sanctuary space established by rituals in the eklesia, which would effectively gender the church as a male space.

The seductiveness of touristed landscapes is simultaneously local and global, as travelled places are formed and reworked by the activities of diverse, mobile people, in their desires to experience situated, sensuous qualities of difference.

Broad in scope, this book is ideal for social scientists and humanists who are interested in contemporary debates about place studies, mobility, and the located realities of globalization.

Space And Place In Children S Literature 1789 To The Present

Focusing on questions of space and locale in children’s literature, this collection explores how metaphorical and physical space can create landscapes of power, knowledge, and identity in texts from the early nineteenth century to the present. The collection is comprised of four sections that take up the space between children and adults, the representation of 'real world' places, fantasy travel and locales, and the physical space of the children’s book-as-object. In their essays, the contributors analyze works from a range of sources and traditions by authors such as Sylvia Plath, Maria Edgeworth, Gloria Anzaldúa, Jenny Robson, C.S. Lewis, Elizabeth Knox, and Claude Ponti. While maintaining a focus on how location and spatiality aid in defining the child’s relationship to the world, the essays also address themes of borders, displacement, diaspora, exile, fantasy, gender, history, home-leaving and homecoming, hybridity, mapping, and metatextuality. With an epilogue by Philip Pullman in which he discusses his own relationship to image and locale, this collection is also a valuable resource for understanding the work of this celebrated author of children’s literature.

This is the fourth volume of a five-book series which offers a forward-looking, broad-based course in human geography. The building blocks of a `geographical imagination' are presented through some of the principal forces that are shaping the world as it approaches the twenty-first century.Each book develops different aspects of the geographical imagination, using a mixture of text and readings, through which the authors teach what it is to think geographically. the issues that are explored are at the forefront of global and local relations. This volume examines the challenges posed by globalization to the meanings we currently give to place and to culture, and questions the nature of the rlationship between them.Issues of identity - cultural, personal, and of place - and the contest over the meanings of places and cultures are set in the context of the changing geography of social power. Beginning with international migration, the book establishes a centuries-old context of movement, settlement, andhybridity within which current debates must be set. It raises issues of the rights of movement of both capital and of people, of the ways in which place and culture are imagined and given meaning, and of the power struggles over the definitions of place and culture. It examines the importance andthe nature of the identities we confer on, and draw from, place, and the importance of space and place in the constitution of `insiders' and `outsiders'. The book as a whole is an argument for rethinking these issues and recognising their importance to our geographical imagination.

GRAND IDEAS FROM WITHIN streamlines the power of the imagination to create success, while providing students with tools to manage both the cultural and internal stress and pressure they may feel from parents, peers, and teachers to perform and conform. Through the use of imagination, this groundbreaking 18-week program empowers students with family problems, disruptive behavior, anxiety, depression or bereavement to act responsibly, make smarter choices, improve character and ethical behavior, increase self esteem, and reduce discipline problems at school and at home. "Grand Ideas from Within is a fabulous resource to help teachers remind kids of what they once knew so well in pre-K - how to use their imaginations - for healing, stress reduction, goal-setting, and behavior management. These short, well-planned, and scripted lessons contain all the information needed for teachers, parents, health care professionals, and counselors to lead one child or a group of children to find their inner inventiveness, their God-given resourcefulness, and their Grand Ideas from Within."
