It is nine hundred years since the death at Canterbury of the great mediaeval Archbishop and thinker Anselm. This meticulously researched and immensely engaging book brings to life the man and his times, the depth of Anselm's thought, and his career in the arena of politics in church and state.

Stephen Frosh Simply Freud

Born into a Jewish family in the Moravian town of Freiberg, Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) entered the University of Vienna at the age of 17 and began his medical career in 1882. Following an 1885 fellowship in Paris, during which he learned about the use of hypnosis to treat hysteria, he embarked on the incredible journey of discovery that would lead to the creation of the “talking cure” and, ultimately, a whole new way to think about human consciousness and experience.In Simply Freud, Professor Stephen Frosh offers an engaging and accessible introduction to Freud and his major ideas, including the unconscious, sexual repression, free association, and the interpretation of dreams. At the same time, he reminds us that Freud was also a person—ambitious, conflicted, amorous, irritable, blind about some things, prophetically insightful about others. His personality shaped the way psychoanalysis developed, and Professor Frosh shows how the dreams he had, the jokes he told, and the patients he worked with all contributed to the formation of his landmark work.With its vivid portrait of life in nineteenth-century Vienna—and the enormous social and political upheavals that provided the context for Freud’s work—Simply Freud is an invaluable overview of the life and times of the man whose revolutionary insights remain crucial for our understanding of central aspects of our world.

In Running With Ghosts, author Matt Tullis reminds us that surviving childhood cancer can be a challenge as formidable as fighting for your life—and more enduring. The eldest of three sons born to a trucker and an office-worker, who lived in the idyllic village of Apple Creek, Ohio, Tullis was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at age 15. In short order, the sports-mad teenager found himself on the cancer ward of Akron Children’s Hospital. One of the lucky ones, he walked out and kept on going.Years later, as a journalist and college professor, Tullis began to wonder about all the friends and caregivers he’d left behind on 4-North. As his curiosity intensified, he decided to seek them out. Running With Ghosts is about friendship, loss, triumph, and closure: one man’s effort to understand more fully a life shaped by a random mutation in the code of his DNA.Matt Tullis is an assistant professor of digital journalism and English at Fairfield University. He is the host and producer of Gangrey: The Podcast and is an associate editor for River Teeth: A Journal of Nonfiction Narrative .

Rich Kanyali King David and Other Kings. Life Lessons for Today

Life is a life full of lessons. We can learn from those that went before us and those that are still with us. Although the life of King David was more like a rollercoaster, it’s one of the most detailed lives we have in the Holy Scriptures. We see the good and the ugly of his life. He made some wrong decisions and made some great ones too. Nonetheless, the Word of God says that he was a “Man after God’s own heart.” One thing I do not recommend is always learning by your own experience. Sometimes the best way is to learn from the experience of another. We can learn at David’s expense (1 Corinthians 10:1-12).In this book, King David and Other Kings: Life lessons for today, I draw out those lessons we can learn from the life of David before and after he was King, and how to avoid the same pitfalls that he fell into. I go a little further and throw in a bonus of five other kings such as Jehu, Saul, Jehoshaphat, Manasseh, and Josiah as comparisons and contrasts to King David. You will love what you read, and you will find the application of these truths in your life transformational and impactful as I have.

Orville A Turnquest What Manner of Man Is This.. The Duke of Windsor.s Years in The Bahamas

What Manner of Man Is This? is a unique and incisive look at an important but largely ignored period of the life of the Prince of Wales who was heir to the British throne and became King of England, Edward VIII, in 1936. A mere ten months later he abdicated the throne to marry a twice-divorced American, Mrs. Wallis Simpson in what was at once the scandal of the century and the love story of the age. Many books have been written about the royal couple, The Duke and Duchess of Windsor, but this focuses exclusively on The Duke's tenure as Royal Governor of The Bahamas in a tumultuous era during which major events and programs occurred including the murder of Sir Harry Oakes, the richest man in the British Empire at that time, all set against the backdrop of World War II raging in Europe. This book also stands apart from others because its author, Sir Orville Turnquest, speaks with the authority and credibility of someone who has occupied the very same office as the Duke of Windsor. Sir Orville did not, however, come from a royal or aristocratic family but rather, in sharp contrast to his predecessor, he came from an area of Nassau inhabited by the underprivileged black community and thus provides a perspective that could not be more different from those of a former King of England. What Manner of Man Is This? is an insider's look at a vital part of Bahamian history with the island nation's emergence from slavery and the African diaspora to a prominent role in world h...

At the age of 128, Carlton Jeffries has seen a lot of things. He is the last baby boomer, the last of a generation raised against a backdrop of dramatic social change. Now the year is 2087, and hardly anything remains of the radical ideas and dreams the boomers brought to life. From the almost mythical, halcyon years of his baby boomer childhood in Nashville, to a distant but disturbingly recognizable future, Carlton endures. He tells his story while on the Appalachian Trail, that abiding constant in what has otherwise become an unrecognizable world. His story is a map of his generation, its follies, its foibles, and the legacy borne by the last living one of them. It is a brave new future for Carlton and his loyal coonhound Sam, if only they can make it over that next mountain.

The Inklings and King Arthur. J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, C.S. Lewis, and Owen Barfield on the Matter of Britain

In the midst of war-torn Britain, King Arthur returned in the writings of the Oxford Inklings. Learn how Tolkien, Lewis, Williams, and Barfield brought hope to their times and our own in their Arthurian literature. Although studies of the “Oxford Inklings” abound, astonishingly enough, none has yet examined their great body of Arthurian work. Yet each of these major writers tackled serious and relevant questions about government, gender, violence, imperialism, secularism, and spirituality through their stories of the Quest for the Holy Grail. This rigorous and sophisticated volume studies does so for the first time."This serious and substantial volume addresses a complex subject that scholars have for too long overlooked. The contributors show how, in the legends of King Arthur, the Inklings found material not only for escape and consolation, but also, and more importantly, for exploring moral and spiritual questions of pressing contemporary concern." —Michael Ward, Fellow of Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford, and co-editor of C.S. Lewis at Poets’ Corner"This volume follows Arthurian leylines in geographies of myth, history, gender, and culture, uncovering Inklings lodestones and way markers throughout. A must read for students of the Inklings." —Aren Roukema, Birkbeck, University of London

Coetzee J.M. Age of Iron

In Cape Town, South Africa, an elderly classics professor writes a letter to her distant daughter, recounting the strange and disturbing events of her dying days. She has been opposed to the lies and brutality of apartheid all her life, but now she finds herself coming face-to-face with its true horrors: the hounding by the police of her servant's son, the burning of a nearby black township, the murder by security forces of a teenage activist who seeks refuge in her house. Through it all, her only companion, the only person to whom she can confess her mounting anger and despair, is a homeless man who one day appears on her doorstep. In Age of Iron, J. M. Coetzee brings his searing insight and masterful control of language to bear on one of the darkest episodes of our times.

It's about moving on from your past, about not letting your pain define you. These poems recollect the moment your heart dies, and that moment it's reborn again. In essence the book is about the human condition, about storytelling, about immortalizing vignettes in life that mattered too much to let die.

Dean Davis The High King of Heaven

"The most sweeping and comprehensive book on eschatology that I've ever encountered. The scope of this book is simply breathtaking." -Dr. Sam StormsFor the last 150 years the evangelical world has been embroiled in a Great Debate about eschatology, about the true biblical picture of God's ultimate purpose for the universe, life, and man.Much of the debate swirls around the Kingdom of God: What is its true nature? In how many stages does it enter history? How shall we interpret the Old Testament prophecies of the Kingdom-literally (in terms of Israel) or figuratively (in terms of the Church)?There is also controversy about the Consummation: Will our world get better and better, or worse and worse? Will Christ return once, twice, or even three times? When He does return, will it be before the millennium or after? How many resurrections should we expect? How many judgments? What will the universe be like when God finally creates the new heavens and the new earth?This book was written in the conviction that the High King of heaven has given his people certain master keys by which they may know the answers to these questions, and so be fully prepared for the awesome consummation of all things. In it, pastor and author Dean Davis seeks to place those keys in our hands, so that we may behold afresh the simplicity and glory of our Blessed Hope, and thereby resolve, once and for all, the Great End Time Debate.

John Major My Old Man: A Personal History of Music Hall

The former Prime Minister takes a remarkable journey into his family past to tell the richly colourful story of the British music hall in this Theatre Book Prize-shotlisted history.Music hall was one of the glories of Victorian England. Sentimental, vulgar, class-conscious, but always patriotic and on the side of the underdog, it held a mirror to the audiences’ hopes and fears, and sometimes the general absurdity of life.Vast, smoke-filled auditoriums were packed night after night in nearly every town and city in Britain. The most popular performers, such as Marie Lloyd, Vesta Tilley and George Robey, were among the highest paid and most celebrated figures in the land.This was the world that John Major’s father Tom entered at the age of 21 as a comedian and singer. In My Old Man, the former prime minister uses his father’s story as a springboard for telling the entertaining history of the music hall, from its origins in Elizabethan times through to its heyday in the nineteenth century and eventual decline with the rise of radio and cinema in the twentieth century.Packed with colourful anecdotes about the great performers of the day, this warm-hearted history conjures up a lost age.

Francis Pryor Seahenge: a quest for life and death in Bronze Age Britain

A lively and authoritative investigation into the lives of our ancestors, based on the revolution in the field of Bronze Age archaeology which has been taking place in Norfolk and the Fenlands over the last twenty years, and in which the author has played a central role.One of the most haunting and enigmatic archaeological discoveries of recent times was the uncovering in 1998 at low tide of the so-called Seahenge off the north coast of Norfolk. This circle of wooden planks set vertically in the sand, with a large inverted tree-trunk in the middle, likened to a ghostly ‘hand reaching up from the underworld’, has now been dated back to around 2020 BC. The timbers are currently (and controversially) in the author’s safekeeping at Flag Fen.Francis Pryor and his wife (an expert in ancient wood-working and analysis) have been at the centre of Bronze Age fieldwork for nearly 30 years, piecing together the way of life of Bronze Age people, their settlement of the landscape, their religion and rituals. The famous wetland sites of the East Anglian Fens have preserved ten times the information of their dryland counterparts like Stonehenge and Avebury, in the form of pollen, leaves, wood, hair, skin and fibre found ‘pickled’ in mud and peat.Seahenge demonstrates how much Western civilisation owes to the prehistoric societies that existed in Europe in the last four millennia BC.

#Girlboss

In the New York Times bestseller that the Washington Post called "Lean In for misfits," Sophia Amoruso shares how she went from dumpster diving to founding one of the fastest- growing retailers in the world. Sophia Amoruso spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and scrounging in dumpsters for leftover bagels. By age twenty-two she had dropped out of school, and was broke, directionless, and checking IDs in the lobby of an art school - a job she'd taken for the health insurance. It was in that lobby that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Flash forward ten years to today, and she's the founder and executive chairman of Nasty Gal, a $250-million-plus fashion retailer with more than four hundred employees. Sophia was never a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she's written #Girlboss for other girls like her: outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is windy as all hell and lined with naysayers. #Girlboss proves that being successful isn't about where you went to college or how popular you were in high school. It's about trusting your instincts and following your gut; knowing which rules to follow and which to break; when to button up and when to let your freak flag fly.

Charles Fillmore The Twelve Powers of Man

The Twelve Powers of Man is a metaphysical look at twelve expressions of the divine power inherent in each of us. Expressions such as love, faith, strength, zeal, and imagination are discussed. JESUS prophesied the advent of a race of men who would sit with Him on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. This book explains the meaning of this mystical reference, what and where the twelve thrones are, and what attainments are necessary by man before he can follow Jesus in this phase of his regeneration. Regeneration follows generation in the development of man. Generation sustains and perpetuates the human; regeneration unfolds and glorifies the divine.It is not expected that beginners in the study of metaphysical Christianity will understand this book. It deals with forces that function below and above the field of the conscious mind. The average religious thinker knows nothing about the subconscious mind and very little about the superconscious; this book presupposes a working knowledge of both.This book aims to clear up the mystery that ever envelops the advent, life, and death of Jesus. To the superficial reader of the Gospels His life was a tragedy and, so far as concerns the kingly reign that was prophesied, it was a failure. Yet those who understand the subtlety of the soul and supremacy of Spirit see that Jesus was conqueror of a psychic force that was destroying the human race.

What Manner of Man Is This? is a unique and incisive look at an important but largely ignored period of the life of the Prince of Wales who was heir to the British throne and became King of England, Edward VIII, in 1936. A mere ten months later he abdicated the throne to marry a twice-divorced American, Mrs. Wallis Simpson in what was at once the scandal of the century and the love story of the age. Many books have been written about the royal couple, The Duke and Duchess of Windsor, but this focuses exclusively on The Duke's tenure as Royal Governor of The Bahamas in a tumultuous era during which major events and programs occurred including the murder of Sir Harry Oakes, the richest man in the British Empire at that time, all set against the backdrop of World War II raging in Europe. This book also stands apart from others because its author, Sir Orville Turnquest, speaks with the authority and credibility of someone who has occupied the very same office as the Duke of Windsor. Sir Orville did not, however, come from a royal or aristocratic family but rather, in sharp contrast to his predecessor, he came from an area of Nassau inhabited by the underprivileged black community and thus provides a perspective that could not be more different from those of a former King of England. What Manner of Man Is This? is an insider's look at a vital part of Bahamian history with the island nation's emergence from slavery and the African diaspora to a prominent role in world h...
