The Silence of Adam
Larry Crabb
0310219396
March 1998
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Crabb and his coauthors are biblical counselors and here apply their specialty to answering the generally secular-cum-pagan men's movement's concern with the male emotional paralysis that so often blights marriages, father-son relationships, and even male friendships. They trace the problem with men to the silence with which Adam became complicit in the first fall from God's grace. Adam failed to trust in God's word and example, and modern men do the same when, instead of following God's example in dealing with uncertainties, they retreat into self-righteousness and toughness that mask anger and fear. Crabb and his colleagues make an analysis of men's silence that is spiritually convincing; moreover, they bolster their argument's veracity by submitting their own weaknesses and struggles as supporting evidence. Some...


John Lennon: In His Own Words
Ken Lawrence
0740754777
October 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Master quote-gatherer Lawrence (who's compiled words by Oprah, Michael Moore and others) has put together a collection of bon mots, rounding up a lifetime of Lennon's thoughts on music, fame, love and life. Lennon's wit and trademark sarcasm are well represented, as is his more thoughtful and self-deprecating side, all fired by the controversial Beatle's mistrust of the status quo, his lifelong quest to shake things up and his fervent belief in peace in our lifetime.

John Lennon inspired millions during his too-brief lifetime. First with the Beatles, then as a solo artist, philosopher, and peace activist, he spoke for a generation that believed they...


Gazer Within
Larry Levis

February 2001
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
This posthumous collection of essays, reviews, and interviews reveals the poet's refreshing and affectionate take on his life and work. The "soiled brims and stained hat bands" of his early years living on a ranch in Fresno, CA, give way to academic life and studies with Donald Justice and Philip Levine; one memoir finds him driving Zbigniew Herbert around in Los Angeles in the early Seventies, and, in an interview, he dwells on "place" and poetic process. The essay "Oaxaca and the Politics of Looking" is not as archly political as the title might suggest. To Levis, writing is the enterprise of an individual working in a social medium that does not need shrill defenses or hyperanalytic insights. His notions of poetry and the poetic self whether dead center or tucked in around the edges are clear and mindful. His...

White Peacock
Andrew H. Lawrence
0521294274
March 1987
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Lawrence's first novel The White Peacock was begun in 1906, rewritten three times, and published in 1911. The Cambridge edition uses the final manuscript as base-text, and faithfully recovers Lawrence's words and punctuation from the layers of publishers' house-styling and their errors; original passages, changed for censorship reasons, are reinstated. Andrew Robertson's introduction sets out the history of Lawrence's writing and revision, and the generally favourable reception by friends and reviewers. Lawrence incorporated much of his own experience and reading on to the novel which is set just north-east of Eastwood, and modelled characters on his friends and family. The notes identify real-life places and people, explain dialect forms, literary allusions, and historical references, and include sensitive passages...
