Description : Are you looking for ways to engage in Prayer and fasting more effectively? In this guide, Dr. Pauline Walley-Daniels reveals how Esther led people in an effective prayer fast that changed their circumstances for life. She explains how to fast and provides important prayer points that are applicable to any situation. Every year, Walley-Daniels's home church and its affiliates set themselves apart to perform a progressive prayer fast based on Esther's encounter. Queen Esther declared the fast when she discovered that Haman, the enemy of the Jews, was plotting to destroy her people. It was a time when all came before God, fasting and crying to Him for family members and for breakthrough and deliverance from any Hamanic decrees enacted against them and their lives. Building on that model, this guide is a song of inspiration, an encouragement through each season of the fast. The insights and practical guidelines it offers enable each of us to break through the challenges and difficulties that confront our environment and our spiritual lives. "Dr. Pauline Walley-Daniels fights a good fight of spiritual warfare. ... She presents powerful, effective prayers that are specific to the challenges individuals may face in fulfilling their destiny." -Susan Slusher, Dean, Christian International Equipping Network

Description : In a roadside Santa Clara motel, Tom and Esther Gardner wake up to an intruder lurching toward Esther's bed in the dark. No one blames Tom for taking down the stranger with a single blow to the head – least of all the victim himself, an embarrassed real estate broker from Arcadia, too drunk to realize he's stumbled into the wrong room. All is forgiven. Three days later, the poor man drops dead of a neglected head injury – leaving his wife, Audrey, and her invalid sister, Joan, penniless and desperate. Overcome with guilt, Tom and Esther make amends by welcoming the grateful and unexpectedly forgiving ladies into their home. It's just for the time being, after all. It's the least the couple can do. But as the "temporary" stay stretches into months, Esther starts to feel the dreadful weight of their good deed and suspects their freeloading guests are up to something. Audrey and Joan's disquieting whispers are starting to sound conspiratorial, their stories aren't adding up, and their smiles are beginning to curl with menace. Is it all in Esther's overburdened imagination? Or is it terrifying reality? With eight novels and nearly two dozen short stories adapted for film and television, it's no wonder Edgar Award–winning author Charlotte Armstrong is considered "the American queen of suspense novelists" (New York Telegraph).

Description : This brilliant, classic and scholarly study provides the fullest treatment of a key subject. It is one of the essential works on Dickens's work and life. Dickens's treatment of women is a central aspect of his artistic achievement. Professor Slater examines the novelist's experience of women - as son, brother, lover, husband, and father, and as it affected the deepest emotional currents in his life. His perception of female nature and his conception of women's role in the home and outside it - and the ways in which these found expression in his art - are pivotal topics. Professor Slater has sifted the mass of legends and doubtful traditions about Dickens's private life to present a close examination of his relations with women, and of his views of woman's nature and the womanly ideal.

Description : This original study offers, for the first time, an analysis of the characterization of Esther as she is portrayed in each of the three primary versions of the book of Esther-the Masoretic text, the Septuagint text, and the Greek a text. This study of characterization has implications beyond itself. It permits a reasssessment of relations between the book of Esther and other literature of the time, it sheds light on the place of origin of the ancient versions of Esther, and it raises serious feminist and canon-critical questions about the role of the book.

Description : Feminist criticism has come a long way in the last twenty years. Its development has been rapid, its snowball progress picking up elements of structuralism, deconstruction and psychoanalytic criticism; just as rapidly it has been shedding its own early theories and methodologies. Now it is a critical orthodoxy with its own established canonical texts. Now is the time, then, to begin to question that orthodoxy. In Problems for Feminist Criticism five women critics seek to do that, in a spirit of enquiry whose central point of focus is the literature for which feminist critics have offered a re-reading. By reference to a wide range of writers, from Milton to the contemporary poet, with a strong emphasis on the nineteenth-century novel, the contributors ask what we may be losing from literature by adopting the feminist orthodoxy. Each chapter provides a survey of feminist critical approaches to its subject and highlights the inherent problems. The book frees the way forward for critics who have found much that is stimulating and revealing in feminist approaches to literature, but who find its proscriptiveness potentially reductive. It shows how literature may have the flexibility to absorb and benefit from new critical approaches, whilst still retaining its own life, never quite to be contained in criticism’s theories and methodologies.

Description : The biblical book of Esther is the dark, yet marvelous, story of a Jewish girl deported with her uncle to the Persian Empire. They are in exile from Israel and from humanity, condemned to wander as nomads and strangers in a foreign land. Yet, almost in spite of herself, Esther becomes a queen, succeeding in saving her people from extermination. How hard it is when everything seems to be falling apart to stay true to one's identity! It might be even more difficult for these exiles to keep faith with a God who seems hidden deep in the very heart of history. However, only this kind of faithfulness makes it possible to accept the other, the one who is different, and to be accepted by the other oneself. The stakes are high. In spite of conflicts and tragedies, this story sets forth a real spirituality of difference. Esther in Exile is a penetrating work on the human condition in general and on the female condition in particular.

Description : To many Christians the Old Testament is a mysterious document, a treasure hidden in the dust of antiquity. It is historical, it tells the story of ancient Israel but has it anything to do with me? Seeing the Big Picture is the story of one man's voyage of discovery. The Bible as a whole is the dramatic story of redemption, which comes to a climax in the New Testament. In every book of the Old Testament the theme of the coming of Christ is there, burning brightly like a lamp in the darkness, heralding the day when the glory of the Christ would burst majestically forth. Suddenly I saw that this was truly one story. It was almost as if someone had turned a light on. I could see things much more clearly... and so many aspects of the New Testament study were brought into such clear focus that I understood as never before.

Description : Few philosophers or theologians exerted as much influence on the shape of medieval thought as Thomas Aquinas. He ranks amongst the most famous of the Western philosophers and was responsible for almost single-handedly bringing the philosophy of Aristotle into harmony with Christianity. He was also one of the first philosophers to argue that philosophy and theology could support each other. The shape of metaphysics, theology, and Aristotelian thought today still bears the imprint of Aquinas' work. In this extensive and deeply researched study, Eleonore Stump examines Aquinas' major works, Summa Theologiae and Summa Contra Gentiles, and clearly assesses the vast range of Aquinas' thought. Philosophers, theologians, and students of the medieval period alike will find this unrivalled study an indispensable resource in researching and teaching Aquinas.

Description : In Esther's Story: Journey from the Cross, P.K. Thomas brought the first century birth of Christianity alive by blending Biblical truth, and human history as seen through the eyes of one young girl on her journey of faith. As Esther's story continues, we follow this now young woman, along with her husband, Anthony and their adopted son, Nymes, on their mission to bring the Word of God to Anthony's mother's family in Macedonia. However, a journey that was expected to be only a few months takes an unexpected turn when a massive earthquake changes their plans and puts them on a detour. Now they face many obstacles that require all of their faith to make the right choices in order to meet the needs of others, both physical and spiritual. But what at first appears to be just a series of un related encounters turns out to be much, much more as they will discover God's hand at work. Despite these obstacles they push on, unsure as to when or if they will reach their destination. And if they do, what will they find?

Description : Probably no decade saw as many changes in the Hollywood film industry and its product as the 1930s did. At the beginning of the decade, the industry was still struggling with the transition to talking pictures. Gangster films and naughty comedies starring Mae West were popular in urban areas, but aroused threats of censorship in the heartland. Whether the film business could survive the economic effects of the Crash was up in the air. By 1939, popularly called "Hollywood's Greatest Year," films like Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz used both color and sound to spectacular effect, and remain American icons today. The "mature oligopoly" that was the studio system had not only weathered the Depression and become part of mainstream culture through the establishment and enforcement of the Production Code, it was a well-oiled, vertically integrated industrial powerhouse. The ten original essays in American Cinema of the 1930s focus on sixty diverse films of the decade, including Dracula, The Public Enemy, Trouble in Paradise, 42nd Street, King Kong, Imitation of Life, The Adventures of Robin Hood, Swing Time, Angels with Dirty Faces, Nothing Sacred, Jezebel, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and Stagecoach .
