Description : This masterful novel is a religious fable of sorts, written by the gifted Russian author Leo Tolstoy as a means of shedding light on the hypocrisy inherent in many aspects of organized religion in the nineteenth century. The book follows the plight of Russian aristocrat Dmitri Ivanovich Nekhlyudov as he seeks absolution -- both in the church and in his own psyche -- for a sin he committed years earlier.
Description : "The Awakening: The Last Great Paradigm Shift" is a refreshing and enlightening look into the seemingly unexplainable malaise that has taken hold in the modern day Christian church. As we take a peek into the twenty-first Century American Church, we see what appears to be a new phenomenon that is unfolding. This development has both Pastor and parishioner grappling for answers. There is a group within the Church, which, in large part, has provided the inspiration for the writing of this book. This group is experiencing a "falling away" within the end time Church of today. This group of believers still loves God and has a strong affinity for the things of God and, yet, they are experiencing an emptiness that is overwhelming and, furthermore, are no longer getting the satisfaction they once received from the Church. The Church and its status quo attitude and behavior is no longer fulfilling, satisfying or gratifying and the resultant emptiness is overbearing. And two questions that beg to be answered are why is this state of apostasy now so prominent in the Church and how did we get here? This book, among other things, tackles these issues from both a Biblical and historical perspective. This book is truly a must read for the end time believer in search of spiritual truth, insight and awakening. This book will challenge the modern day believer to look at where they are, to choose who they are going to serve and if they are willing to do it God's way. After having read this book, I feel challenged all the more. Rev. P Spears The Awakening is truly enlightening for the seeking, searching, 21st century believer. A refreshing revelation of Biblical truth. E Beech

Description : 'She wanted to swim far out, where no woman had swum before.' Kate Chopin was one of the most individual and adventurous of nineteenth-century american writers, whose fiction explored new and often startling territory. When her most famous story, The Awakening, was first published in 1899, it stunned readers with its frank portrayal of the inner word of Edna Pontellier, and its daring criticisms of the limits of marriage and motherhood. The subtle beauty of her writing was contrasted with her unwomanly and sordid subject-matter: Edna's rejection of her domestic role, and her passionate quest for spiritual, sexual, and artistic freedom. From her first stories, Chopin was interested in independent characters who challenged convention. This selection, freshly edited form the first printing of each text, enables readers to follow her unfolding career as she experimented with a broad range of writing, from tales for children to decadent fin-de siecle sketches. The Awakening is set alongside thirty-two short stories, illustrating the spectrum of the fiction from her first published stories to her 1898 secret masterpiece, 'The Storm'. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
