She's also a mom, a daughter, and a sister, a clumsy yogini, and a reality-TV devotee. In this "unflinching look at her own experiences" (Entertainment Weekly ), Jennifer fashions tales of modern-day womanhood as uproariously funny and moving as the best of Nora Ephron and Tina Fey. No subject is off-limits in these intimate and honest essays: sex, weight, envy, money, her mother's coming out of the closet, her estranged father's death. From lonely adolescence to hearing her six-year-old daughter say the F word-fat-for the first time, Jen dives into the heart of female experience, with the wit and candor that have endeared her to fans all over the world.

Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart is about words, most particularly it is a book about the Word, the living Word of God, found in the Scriptures, and embodied once and for all in the person of Jesus, the Word made flesh. In Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart Fr. James Wallace offers a nuanced consideration of the homily as nourishment. He focuses on three common liturgical contexts: feasts of the Lord, feasts of Mary and the saints, and the sacramental rites. He relates the preaching that occurs within each area to one of the heart?s basic hungers: for wholeness (the great feasts of the Lord), for guidance (feasts of Mary and the saints), and for meaning (various rites). He also addresses the spirituality of the preacher as it is worked out in the process of preparation. For preachers and students in schools of ministry who are preparing to preach Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart will serve as a useful tool to help satisfy the hunger to preach the Gospel. It includes homilies that provide excellent starting points for preachers looking for ideas. Chapter one considers the image of feeding God?s people with the Word of God. Chapter two, considering the innermost hunger of the human person, looks to the preaching that takes place on the great feasts of the Lord and how such preaching can nourish the hunger for wholeness. Chapter three returns to the hunger for meaning already mentioned and extends to the other sacramental celebrations the homily?s capacity to meet this hunger, including those addressed by the various sacramental celebrations of the Church such as baptisms, wedding, funerals, rites of reconciliation, and anointing of the sick. Chapters four and five present the homily as responding to the hunger to belong. The final chapter considers one other hunger of the heart, unique to the preacher, referred to by John Paul II as a ?hunger to preach the gospel? (Pastores Dabo Vobis, no. 28). Chapters are ?Preaching?s Task in a New Millennium: Feeding God?s People,? ?Preaching the Feasts of the Lord and the Hunger for Wholeness,? ?Preaching Within the Sacramental Rites and the Hunger for Meaning,? ?Preaching Through the Saints and the Hunger for Belonging: I?The Saints,? ?Preaching Through the Saints and the Hunger for Belonging: II?Mary,? and ?Cultivating the Preacher?s Hunger: ?To Make the Gospel Known and Loved.???Wallace guides preachers in linking their sermons to the festal, pastoral, and sanctoral calendar ...? Theology Today?... covers areas of preaching that can also be done by lay preachers, it is useful to both the ordained and lay Catholic preacher. And if you are not a preacher, this book will help you become a more attentive listener to the scriptures and more receptive worshiper at liturgical celebrations.? Worship?Our world hungers and thirsts for the living Word of God that gives life and hope. Father Wallace invites, no charges, preachers to explore the essential role they are to play in feeding God?s people. While written primarily for a Roman Catholic audience, his insights will feed a much wider audience.? Lucy Hogan Professor of Preaching and Worship Wesley Theological Seminary Washington, D.C.?Imagine a caterer overwhelmed by trying to feed too much hunger in too many banquets. Parish priests feel similarly daunted attempting to preach to multiple spiritual need in multiple feasts. James Wallace, writing from both his homiletical expertise and pastor?s heart, shows committed preachers how to serve the kind of homiletical fare at the Church?s feasts that nourishes basic hunger for wholeness, meaning, and belonging. In answering a crying need in pulpit and pew, Wallace beautifully combines his gifts for insight, clarity, and creativity.? Don M. Wardlaw Professor Emeritus of Preaching and Worship McCormick Theological Seminary Chicago?The book is an invaluable and long overdue resource for Catholic preachers and teachers of preachers. I will certainly be requiring it of my students. Instead of a bag of superficial tricks and gimmicks, the book provides preachers with a deep understanding of the several liturgical preaching occasions the book addresses. The work is thorough, thoughtful and theological yet clear, practical, and pastoral. The author?s love of preaching and his deep respect for the various special occasion liturgies are evident on every page. I found the last chapter?s concern for the ongoing need for preachers to remain alive to their preaching right on target. The four ?loves? the author lists as necessary to sustain preachers stand as warning and remedy for weary preachers.? Richard C. Stern, Ed.D. Associate Professor of Homiletics Saint Meinrad School of Theology ?Rarely have I read a book on preaching that is so rich, informative, encouraging, practical. Fresh ideas, vivid imagination, familiarity with contemporary literature, stories, playing with metaphors, excursions into history?it?s genuinely breathtaking. And his concluding exhortation: cultivate love for words, for Scripture, for people, for Jesus Christ?my heart was on fire.? Walter J. Burghardt, S.J.[short ad copy]In Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart Father James Wallace offers a nuanced consideration of the homily as nourishment.

|Author||: Peter Wells|
|Editor||: Penguin Random House New Zealand Limited|
Shortlisted for the NZ Post Award this fascinating, innovative biography is of a true original and significant figure in NZ's early colonisation. "I love doubters: of a truly honest doubter I have great hope." Printer, botanist and missionary, William Colenso was a nineteenth-century maverick, a true original. He protested at the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, arguing that Maori did not fully understand its implications. He became a troubled conscience during the white-hot period of colonisation, maintaining his dissident voice throughout his career. Peter Wells refreshes our vision of this awkward, highly talented man, who lost his family after the church expelled him for fathering a child by a Maori woman. Rejected by church, family and friends, Colenso made botany his home and lovingly described the plants of New Zealand. At the same time he wrote a series of remarkable pamphlets that open up our past. 'I write for future generations,' he noted in 1881. The time has come to welcome Colenso back.

This book is a critical study of South African literature, from colonial and pre-colonial times onwards. Christopher Heywood discusses selected poems, plays and prose works in five literary traditions: Khoisan, Nguni-Sotho, Afrikaans, English, and Indian. The discussion includes over 100 authors and selected works, including poets from Mqhayi, Marais and Campbell to Butler, Serote and Krog, theatre writers from Boniface and Black to Fugard and Mda, and fiction writers from Schreiner and Plaatje to Bessie Head and the Nobel prizewinners Gordimer and Coetzee. The literature is explored in the setting of crises leading to the formation of modern South Africa, notably the rise and fall of the Emperor Shaka's Zulu kingdom, the Colenso crisis, industrialisation, the colonial and post-colonial wars of 1899, 1914, and 1939, and the dissolution of apartheid society. In Heywood's study, South African literature emerges as among the great literatures of the modern world.

Women have made an amazing, creative, and prolific contribution to hymnody through the centuries of Christian worship. Excluded from liturgical commissions and denied other opportunities for involvement in the worship of the churches, women were able to express and influence spirituality in the writing of hymns. This influence spreads across the whole range of hymn-writing, including writing for children, which was at one time seen as women's natural place, but also the introduction of new voices through translations; engagement in social campaigns such as temperance and the abolition of slavery; mission and evangelism; and the general development of worshipping life. However, with the exception of the nineteenth century, the voices of women have been largely silenced or marginalized. The Hymn Explosion of the 1960s onward almost completely ignored women's writing, and there has only recently been something of a recovery. There is much more to Our Song than people think! This book opens up women's writing from the beginnings of Christianity, through the Middle Ages, the development of printing and the rise of popular hymnody to the present day. Living hymn-writers add their voices in a series of biographical stories, which complete the overarching story of Our Song.
