The author looks at God's patterns in the Bible and His great saving deeds, and finds that the Bible is about telling and retelling the story of the God of promise and covenant who keeps working toward His ultimate goal--the restoration of Eden. He concludes that Jesus fulfills the longings of the Jewish Scriptures and explains how the law brings freedom and how our assurance of salvation flows from God's justice.

Again for the First Time was originally published in 1984 by Tooth of Time Books in Santa Fe, and almost immediately received the Texas Institute of Letters Poetry Prize. Catacalos went on to become a Dobie-Paisano fellow, a Stegner fellow, a recipient of an NEA creative writing fellowship, and numerous other honors. This book is unique in that it pairs and often plays against each other the mythologies of Catacalos's mixed Greek and Mexican backgrounds. At the same time that it is populated with characters like Ariadne and Theseus, it is very contemporary in its settings and the issues it addresses, including San Antonio street life, racism, mass killings, and foreign wars. It is a strongly feminist work as well. As Texas Monthly put it, For precise balance in tone and form, and for surprising resonance throughout, Again for the First Time is a superb book of poems.

Hegel and Deleuze cannily examines the various resonances and dissonances between these two major philosophers. The collection represents the best in contemporary international scholarship on G. W. F. Hegel and Gilles Deleuze, and the contributing authors inhabit the as-yet uncharted space between the two thinkers, collectively addressing most of the major tensions and resonances between their ideas and laying a solid ground for future scholarship. The essays are organized thematically into two groups: those that maintain a firm but nuanced disjunction or opposition between Hegel and Deleuze, and those that chart possible connections, syntheses, or both. As is clear from this range of texts, the challenges involved in grasping, appraising, appropriating, and developing the systems of Deleuze and Hegel are varied and immense. While neither Hegel nor Deleuze gets the last word, the contributors ably demonstrate that partisans of either can no longer ignore the voice of the other.

How did the Bible get its start? Where did its various writings come from, and why were they collected together as a single volume of religious "scripture"? What is the background to the individual writings, and what key themes run through them? In "Covenant Documents: Reading the Bible Again for the First Time," Wayne Brouwer helps us peek behind the familiar pages and find historical, literary and contextual information that bring new vibrancy to old words. Beginning with the premise that the internal testimony of the Bible's earliest chapters assumes a formative event between Israel and its God, Brouwer shows how the various writings fit patterns of ancient covenant documents. Launching from this fascinating history, he provides background information, literary structure and style, and cultural dynamics that enliven the reading and rereading of the most famous book in the world. Part introduction, part overview, part handbook, "Covenant Documents" serves as a great textbook for introductory courses in biblical literature and Christian doctrine. It also functions as a sourcebook for pastors and teachers, and even a guide for Bible study groups. Wayne Brouwer is a professor in the Religion Department and the Studies in Ministry Department of Hope College. He is also on the faculty of Western Theological Seminary, which is in Holland, Michigan as well. He has served as lead pastor in three congregations and has taught in various colleges and seminaries internationally. He holds degrees from Dordt College (A.B.), Calvin Theological Seminary (M.Div., Th.M.) and McMaster University (M.A., Ph.D.). He has published over 700 articles and more than a dozen books, including "Political Religion" and "Being a Believer" in an Unbelieving World.

One of the vital challenges facing thoughtful people today is how to read the Bible faithfully without abandoning our sense of truth and history. Reading the Bible Again for the First Time provides a much-needed solution to the problem of how to have a fully authentic yet contemporary understanding of the scriptures. Many mistakenly believe there are no choices other than fundamentalism or simply rejecting the Bible as something that can bring meaning to our lives. Answering this modern dilemma, acclaimed author Marcus Borg reveals how it is possible to reconcile the Bible with both a scientific and critical way of thinking and our deepest spiritual needs, leading to a contemporary yet grounded experience of the sacred texts. This seminal book shows you how to read the Bible as it should be examined—in an approach the author calls "historical-metaphorical." Borg explores what the Scriptures meant to the ancient communities that produced and lived by them. He then helps us to discover the meaning of these stories, providing the knowledge and perspective to make the wisdom of the Bible an essential part of our modern lives. The author argues that the conventional way of seeing the Bible's origin, authority, and interpretation has become unpersuasive to millions of people in our time, and that we need a fresh way of encountering the Bible that takes the texts seriously but not literally, even as it takes seriously who we have become. Borg traces his personal spiritual journey, describing for readers how he moved from an unquestioning childhood belief in the biblical stories to a more powerful and dynamic relationship with the Bible as a sacred text brimming with meaning and guidance. Using his own experience as an example, he reveals how the modern crisis of faith is itself rooted in the misinterpretation of sacred texts as historical record and divine dictation, and opens readers to a truer, more abundant perspective. This unique book invites everyone—whatever one's religious background—to engage the Bible, wrestle with its meaning, explore its mysteries, and understand its relevance. Borg shows us how to encounter the Bible in a fresh way that rejects the limits of simple literalism and opens up rich possibilities for our lives.

Over the course of a year, Michael Austin--an English professor and literary critic who was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints--read the Book of Mormon for the first time in more than 30 years and wrote weekly blog posts detailing his insights and challenges with the text. The 44 essays in Buried Treasures, adapted from those original posts, show a trained scholar and literary critic grappling with the foundational text of his own religious tradition and finding surprising things that he had never seen before. The essays in this volume draw a picture of the Book of Mormon that is rarely seen in the devotional writings of those who consider it a scripture or the polemical writings of those who consider it a fraud. For Austin, the Book of Mormon, whatever its origin, is a complex literary and spiritual text full of sophisticated narratives, recurring patterns, and big ideas that can sustain a high level of critical analysis. Buried Treasures shows what happens when a well-trained reader approaches this text with fresh eyes and an open mind and unearths the treasures that have been hidden in plain sight for almost 200 years. Michael Austin is the author of seven previous books, including Rereading Job, We Must Not Be Enemies, and the bestselling textbook, Reading the World: Ideas that Matter. He is currently the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost at the University of Evansville in Evansville Indiana. "I discovered in the Book of Mormon a profoundly human record of people struggling with their relationship to God and to each other. It has all the messiness one would expect of a record compiled over a thousand years, with multiple narrative perspectives, biases, agendas, and blind spots-as the authors and narrators groped towards an understanding of the Kingdom of God. It is a book that can bear multiple readings from multiple perspectives without exhausting its treasures. And it is a book that Latter-day Saints should never be ashamed to place alongside the great books of the world's traditions, both religious and secular." --Michael Austin, from the Introduction

Of the many recent books on the historical Jesus, none has explored what the latest biblical scholarship means for personal faith. Now, in Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, Marcus Borg addresses the yearnings of those who want a fully contemporary faith that welcomes rather than oppresses our critical intelligence and openness to the best of historical scholarship. Borg shows how a rigorous examination of historical findings can lead to a new faith in Christ, one that is critical and, at the same time, sustaining. "Believing in Jesus does not mean believing doctrines about him," Borg writes. "Rather, it means to give one's heart, one's self at its deepest level, to . . . the living Lord." Drawing on his own journey from a naive, unquestioning belief in Christ through collegiate skepticism to a mature and contemporary Christian faith, Borg illustrates how an understanding of the historical Jesus can actually lead to a more authentic Christian life—one not rooted in creeds or dogma, but in a life of spiritual challenge, compassion, and community. In straightforward, accessible prose, Borg looks at the major findings of modern Jesus scholarship from the perspective of faith, bringing alive the many levels of Jesus' character: spirit person, teacher of alternative wisdom, social prophet, and movement founder. He also reexamines the major stories of the Old Testament vital to an authentic understanding of Jesus, showing how an enriched understanding of these stories can uncover new truths and new pathways to faith. For questioning believers, doubters, and reluctant unbelievers alike, Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time frees our understanding of Jesus' life and message from popular misconceptions and outlines the way to a sound and contemporary faith: "For ultimately, Jesus is not simply a figure of the past, but a figure of the present. Meeting that Jesus—the living one who comes to us even now—will be like meeting Jesus again for the first time."

Traduit de l'anglais (États-Unis) par Olivier Deparis Ami intime de David Foster Wallace et de Jonathan Franzen, adulé par une génération d'écrivains (Lorrie Moore, Junot Diaz, etc.) à qui il a enseigné la fiction à l'université de Syracuse, George Saunders est encore largement inconnu en France. Dix décembre devrait contribuer à corriger cette anomalie. Un homme-cobaye prisonnier d'un laboratoire, un lycéen rêveur, un manager, un employé d'un parc d'attractions et quelques femmes au bord de la crise de nerfs, tels sont les (anti-)héros de ce livre dans lequel l'absurde règne en maître. Car le monde est absurde, nous dit George Saunders. Pour lui, l'écrivain, tel le canari dans la mine célébré jadis par Kurt Vonnegut, est celui qui avertit ses semblables que le coup de grisou est imminent. C'est pourquoi il est plus que jamais urgent de le lire.

Juste amis. Juste amis. Juste amis. À force de le répéter, ça va bien finir par être vrai. Hazel sait qu'elle n'est pas facile à vivre – et franchement, la plupart des hommes ne sont pas prêts à relever le défi. Si son armée d'animaux domestiques et son goût prononcé pour l'absurde ne les font pas fuir, son absence de filtre la conduit systématiquement à dire ce qu'il ne faut pas dans les moments délicats. Tant pis pour eux. Hazel est une belle personne. Josh connaît Hazel depuis la fac, à un moment où son allégresse loufoque était totalement incompatible avec son caractère à lui, calme et dans la retenue. Depuis le premier soir où ils se sont rencontrés – quand elle lui a avoué de but en blanc qu'elle " serait honorée de (lui) offrir (son) corps " – jusqu'au jour où elle lui vomit avec grâce sur les chaussures, Josh a toujours pensé qu'Hazel relevait plus du spectacle que de l'être humain. Cependant, dix ans plus tard, après une relation houleuse avec une fille qui l'a trompé, sortir avec Hazel est une vraie bouffée d'air frais. Non que Josh et Hazel sortent ensemble. Du moins, pas ensemble ensemble. Parce qu'organiser en duo une série de " double dates " de plus en plus terribles, signifie bien qu'il n'y a rien entre eux... n'est-ce pas ?
