On Becoming a Catholic The Challenge of Christian Initiation Book Excerpt:

This handbook to the "Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults" (RCIA), written by a renowned religious educator and theologian, invites converts, the clergy, and all those engaged in the catechumenal process to appreciate anew the richness of the Catholic faith. Regis Duffy articulates the requirements for becoming and remaining a full Christian committed to gospel values on every level of life to the building of the Kingdom of God. On Becoming a Catholic is a complete introduction to the essentials of the catechumenal process and clearly relates what the church teaches to its members. Duffy's exposition stresses: - The theology of the Cross as the root of all Christian conversion and formation, and its meaning for individual Christians and parish life - The Word of God as prophetic Word in parish, familial, and personal lives: learning to "recognize" the Lord in unexpected places of our lives and world, and nurture openness and responsiveness to the Word - How to live and act as one marked by the Cross and the Word of God: participating in a conversion process that profoundly changes our priorities, values, lifestyle, and -- most importantly -- our involvement in worship and sacraments - What it means to be a Christian community: discovering the meaning of the Liturgical Year and the Church's role as teacher - The value of Lenten observance, the meaning of Good Friday, and the centrality of the Easter event as basis for a practical theology of our redemptive need and God's enduring response - How honest Eucharistic participation embodies a renewed sense of personal commitment to Christ and sense of mission and ministry in the community.

Miss Manners Guide to Domestic Tranquility Book Excerpt:

America's leading civility expert knocks household discourteousness off its foundations. As the rudeness rampant in America's streets sends its citizens fleeing inside to bolt the doors and draw the shades, they are finding what was once the relative safety of the hearth threatened by an unwelcome addition to their living space--the same rudeness presumably left behind when they stepped across their own cozy thresholds. With the keen wit and insight that distinguishes her column and previous books, Judith Martin's newest work equips residences everywhere with the tools to return manners to domestic life. Refusing to recognize that the harried household cannot meet her standards of propriety--especially since all households are now harried--Miss Manners explains how this is done. Whether your family is nuclear, blended, extended, or unrelated; whether you are single, divorced, living together, or married; at a family dinner or dinner party; engaged in combat with the neighbors or with the relatives--there is simply no substitute for the core of civility that must reside at the heart of every house, condo or apartment if it is truly to be a home. Miss Manners is prepared to sweep through your house and get rid of those lurking traces of rudeness that you were pretending not to notice. You know you are not going to be able to enjoy a pleasant and peaceful household until these few chores are done. Table of Contents Chapter One--The People Allotting due space and respect to parents, children, roommates, relatives--and whoever those other people are whom one of them must have brought home Chapter Two--The Place Making use of the rooms instead of turning them into a mess or a museum, while everybody huddles upstairs Chapter Three--The Rules Negotiating compromises without having to leave home for Domestic Dispute Court Chapter Four--The System Keeping track of where everybody is, where they are supposed to be, and what they are supposed to be doing (if they remember) Chapter Five--The Help Getting the housework done when you can't complain about the Servant Problem--because theservants are you and the people in the phone book who may be there sometime today Chapter Six--The Visitors Offering hospitality without surrendering your privacy or your resources to the thankless Chapter Seven--Entertaining: The Social Contract Reviving the art of not-for-profit entertaining to make friends who will love you for yourself Chapter Eight--Entertaining: The Social Event Learning to give a variety of parties, formal and informal--because it beats staying home alone watching TV Chapter Nine--Entertaining: The Relatives Kindling warm memories rather than heated conflict at family occasions Chapter Ten--The Community Being pleasant enough to the neighbors so you're not afraid to walk out your own front door

Four Comedies Book Excerpt:

Comedy is how we cope with the absurdity of life. The person who cannot step back and see how ludicrous are most of the things we encounter in life is the person who gets mired and engulfed in them. Comedy lets us step back and see the whole picture. It reminds us of what is really important which certainly includes laughing and laughing often. These four comedies each take on several situations but exaggerate them until they become enlarged and laughable. To each are added an unusual use of standard theatrical tradition. A writer of one play becomes involved with his own characters. Another play actually moves backwards in time. Another comedy is actually two separate plays that come together while another claims to be a musical but has no singing whatsoever. Come along for the fun and laughter and lighten your burdens for a while.

Citizenship on Catfish Row Book Excerpt:

A radical reinterpretation of three controversial works that illuminate racism and national identity in the United States Citizenship on Catfish Row focuses on three seminal works in the history of American culture: the first full-length narrative film, D. W. Griffith's The Birth of a Nation; the first integrated musical, Oscar Hammerstein and Jerome Kern's Showboat; and the first great American opera, George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess. Each of these works sought to make a statement about American identity in the form of a narrative, and each included in that narrative a prominent role for Black people. Each work included jarring or discordant elements that pointed to a deeper tension between the kind of stories Americans wish to tell about themselves and the historical and social reality of race. Although all three have been widely criticized, their efforts to connect the concepts of nation and race are not only instructive about the history of the American imagination but also provide unexpected resources for contemporary reflection.

Six long years have passed since Angela Sullivan set eyes on a man. Six years since the man she loved ruined her—and her parents banished her to Stanbrook Abbey, where she’s now preparing to take her vows of poverty, obedience, and chastity. But when the abbey takes in a handsome—if impudent—injured rogue, it will take divine intervention for Angela to quell her sinful thoughts. If Lord Phillip were not in such pain from his riding accident, he would consider himself lucky to be staying in a building full of women. But his rakish reputation has preceded him. True, Phillip may not be his angelic twin brother, but as days become weeks, his thoughts of Angela grow nobler—even as Angela’s thoughts of him become less than holy. . . .

Kiss Fewer Frogs Book Excerpt:

"This breakthrough book changes dating forever. Now you can find The One with your eyes wide open." -Jack Canfield, New York Times bestselling co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul® and The Success Principles™ Practical results-oriented guide to finding the right type of man for you - and weeding out the rest "Kiss Fewer Frogs: The Fast Track Secret to Your Fairy Tale Ending" What if you could skip all the bad dates and failed relationships on the way to meeting Mr. Right? What if you could recognize the men who are wrong for you within minutes of meeting them, rather than finding out months or years later? So many women date - and sometimes marry - the wrong man, missing opportunities for happiness and wasting time in the process. Now best-selling author James Sheridan shares a revolutionary new approach to fast-tracking relationship bliss - and short-circuiting heartbreak. After decades of success as a relationship coach and countless conversations with women in audiences around the world, Sheridan now shares the secrets that have changed the lives of thousands of women. "For both men and women," he writes, "romantic relationships are the foundations of a fulfilled life, so why should you go about getting one in such a haphazard fashion?" Based on years of research in psychology, science, and the principles of compatibility and chemistry, "Kiss Fewer Frogs" empowers a woman to identify which men are best suited to her and where to find him. Unlike generic dating advice, the core of the book digs deep into seven types of men: "genetypes" of behavior, personality, and character identified by psychologists, scientists, and even spiritual leaders. Which asset does each genetype bring into a relationship? What do they dislike? What drives them? How likely will they call you back promptly? Where does each type hang out? One of those seven types is invariably likely to be your type and this ground-breaking guide can help you find him. With wit, warmth, and sometimes bold comments, the author also gives women rare insights into the male psyche and takes on topics rarely encountered in similar guides: "Prince Perfect" and revelations designed to shred artificial worldviews The one thing single mothers should avoid Six characteristics of women who attract men Rewriting the dating script for better focus and more control The power of appreciating your age, body and looks Tips on writing better online profiles The "Calls of Nature" for both sexes Woven into this step-by-step guide are stories of real men and women in their search for romance, humorous anecdotes, and reflections on dating relationships that the author overheard "last night at a bar (aka my alternate research lab)." Whether he is sharing how to recognize a "player" with surgical precision or assigning women to write down their deepest relationship fears, Sheridan motivates readers to give love a chance. Imagine having proven strategies to let yourself learn from the past and move forward to the future with greater confidence and trust. If you - or women you know - are ready to take your best shot at identifying compatible men who are serious about finding a life partner, "Kissing Fewer Frogs" will make the search both systematic and fun. The perfect prince doesn't exist, but you may very well discover a prince who's close to perfect for you.

To Trust a Rogue Book Excerpt:

A rogue Marcus, the Viscount Wessex has carefully crafted the image of rogue and charmer for polite Society. Under that façade, however, dwells a man whose dreams were shattered almost eight years earlier by a young lady who captured his heart, pledged her love, and then left him, with nothing more than a curt note. A widow Eight years earlier, faced with no other choice, Mrs. Eleanor Collins, fled London and the only man she ever loved, Marcus, Viscount Wessex. She has now returned to serve as a companion for her elderly aunt with a daughter in tow. Even though they’re next door neighbors, there is little reason for her to move in the same circles as Marcus, just in case, she vows to avoid him, for he reminds her of all she lost when she left. Reunited As their paths continue to cross, Marcus finds his desire for Eleanor just as strong, but he learned long ago she’s not to be trusted. He will offer her a place in his bed, but not anything more. Only, Eleanor has no interest in this new, roguish man. The more time they spend together, the protective wall they’ve constructed to keep the other out, begin to break. With all the betrayals and secrets between them, Marcus has to open his heart again. And Eleanor must decide if it’s ever safe to trust a rogue.

Islamic Conversion and Christian Resistance on the Early Modern Stage Book Excerpt:

This book explores the threat of Christian conversion to Islam in twelve early modern English plays. In works by Shakespeare, Marlowe, Massinger, and others, conversion from Christianity to Islam is represented as both tragic and erotic, as a fate worse than death and as a sexual seduction. Degenhardt examines the stage's treatment of this intercourse of faiths to reveal connections between sexuality, race, and confessional identity in early modern English drama and culture. In addition, she shows how England's encounter with Islam reanimated post-Reformation debates about the embodiment of Christian faith. As Degenhardt compellingly demonstrates, the erotics of conversion added fuel to the fires of controversies over Pauline universalism, Christian martyrdom, the efficacy of relics and rituals, and even the Knights of Malta.

Beyond the Breath Book Excerpt:

Beyond the Breath is one of the first books to give a complete overview and description of sensation based vipassana meditation, the form of mediation thought of as the original method of meditation as used by the Buddha 2,500 years ago. This form of meditation, brought to the West by S.N. Geoneka, provides a means to experience emotions directly and nonverbally—accessing the mind through the body. One of the main principles of this school of meditation is that meditation alone is not sufficient practice, but that it must be combined with a whole-life and ethical commitment. M.Glickman's approach is unique—he takes a mediation practice deeply rooted within a historic Buddhist framework, and gives it a modern-day, scientific spin—he presents sensation based viapassana meditaiton and Buddhist principles in 20th-century language, secularizing ideas that may sound exotic, off-putting, or out-dated. Glickman's passion for the topic, as well as his great understanding of Buddhist concepts, make this an inspiring read.
