Chocolat (Tie-In)

Book Review
Vianne Rocher and her 6-year-old daughter, Anouk, arrive in the small village of Lansquenet-sous-Tannes--"a blip on the fast road between Toulouse and Bourdeaux"--in February, during the carnival. Three days later, Vianne opens a luxuriant chocolate shop crammed with the most tempting of confections and offering a mouth-watering variety of hot chocolate drinks. It's Lent, the shop is opposite the church and open on Sundays, and Francis Reynaud, the austere parish priest, is livid.

One by one the locals succumb to Vianne's concoctions. Joanne Harris weaves their secrets and troubles, their loves and desires, into her third novel, with the lightest touch. There's sad, polite Guillame and his dying dog; thieving, beaten-up Joséphine Muscat; schoolchildren who declare it "hypercool" when Vianne says they can help...

Breakfast with Sharks : A Screenwriter's Guide to Getting the Meeting, Nailing the Pitch, Signing the Deal, and Navigating the Murky Waters of Hollywood
Michael Lent
060981043X
May 25, 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
"Writing a script, or making a short film, or taking a dozen film theory courses in no way prepares you for what Hollywood is really like," declares Lent, a columnist for Creative Screenwriting Magazine who has worked on nine feature film projects. In this book of "loosely organized" "academic courses," he purports to give novices the skinny on doing business in Tinseltown. Beginning, logically, with "Your Decision to Go Pro," Lent then moves on to "The Script-to-Screen Process" and "The Hollywood Game and Its Players." Lent’s guide is above all realistic, and his straight-shooting, no-nonsense tone is often leavened with humor. He’s thorough as well, discussing everything from relocating to L.A. and dealing with rejection to making pitches and negotiating contracts. He even tells would-be screenwriters...


Eastertide: Prayers for Lent Through Easter from The Divine Hours

Paperback

Book Description
"A wise rabbi once told me that it is not how many prayers we don’t say that matters to God, but rather how many we do. That is important to all of us, but especially for beginners. If this is your first attempt to return to this most ancient of Christian practices, it is wise to remember that you are entering into a discipline and, like all disciplines, this one sits hard and heavy upon one at times. There are hours you will miss and/or some that you can’t even begin to figure out how to observe. That is all right, for either the joy will carry you into greater joy and transmute the discipline into privilege, or you will find yourself simply the wiser and the richer for such experience as you have had. As the rabbi said, that is what matters ultimately."

In the Fall
Jeffrey Lent
037570745X
July 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Midway through Jeffrey Lent's turbulent and lyrical first novel, a wayward son indulges a sobering reflection. "Mostly, people are cruel, given the chance," Jamie Pelham observes, not only assuaging his own disappointments but also affirming the intransigence of deed and memory--and prejudice. In the Fall is freighted with such moments, as a postbellum Yankee family strives to fathom its past in order to clarify its present. What they find, as Lent's tale ambles over three generations, is the danger of probing too deeply.

When 17-year-old Norman Pelham departs his father's Vermont farm to join the Union army, he can little anticipate the incredulity and scorn that his return--accompanied by his former-slave bride--will elicit. The newlyweds make a go of country life, Leah's industry wins the locals' begrudging respect,...

Tikki Tikki Tembo
Retold by Arlene Mosel
0805011668

Book Review
If you haven't already read Tikki Tikki Tembo, you've probably heard at least someone recite the deliriously long name of its protagonist: Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo, by now a famous refrain in most nursery schools. In this beautiful edition--complete with line and wash illustrations by artist Blair Lent--Arlene Mosel retells an old Chinese folktale about how the people of China came to give their children short names after traditionally giving their "first and honored" sons grand, long names. Tikki tikki tembo (which means "the most wonderful thing in the whole wide world") and his brother Chang (which means "little or nothing") get into trouble with a well, are saved by the Old Man with the Ladder, and change history while they're at it. Tikki Tikki Tembo is...

Great Lent: Journey to Pascha
Alexander Schmemann
0913836044
January 1, 1969
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This revised edition of Father Alexander Schmemann's Lenten classic examines the meaning of Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts, the Prayer of St Ephraim the Syrian, the Canon of St Andrew of Crete and other neglected or misunderstood treasures of Lenten worship. Schmemann draws on the Church's sacramental and liturgical tradition to suggest the meaning of "Lent in our life." The Lenten season is meant to kindle a "bright sadness" within our hearts. Its aim is precisely the remembrance of Christ, a longing for a relationship with God that has been lost. Lent offers the time and place for recovery of this relationship. The darkness of Lent allows the flame of the Holy Spirit to burn within our hearts until we are led to the brilliance of the Resurrection. Father Alexander Schmemann...

From Publishers Weekly
Has there ever been a more hard-hitting, beautifully written, theologically inclusive anthology of writings for Lent and Easter? It's doubtful. Many readers may well find that this collection-a sequel to Plough's highly successful Watch for the Light: Readings for Advent and Christmas-is the one book they return to year after year, forgoing their usual custom of buying a new Lenten devotional each spring. Six separate sections (Invitation, Temptation, Passion, Crucifixion, Resurrection and New Life) guide readers through the essential elements of spiritual preparation and feature writings from some of Christendom's most celebrated masters. Classic thinkers such as Martin Luther and John Donne share space with 20th-century theologians like C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton and Dorothy Day. There is also a generous...

Meditations on the Cross
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Manfred Weber
0664257550
March 1998
Paperback
·
 
Amazon.com
Making sense of Jesus' suffering, death, and resurrection may be the most difficult and necessary task facing any Christian, not only during Lent, but throughout the year. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German Lutheran pastor who was executed by the Nazis in 1945, constantly wrote about these themes, and made better sense of them for 20th-century Christians than almost anyone else. Meditations on the Cross, edited by Manfred Weber, collects his letters and sermons on the vexing topic of Christ's Passion. Each chapter is brief, focused, uplifting, and devastating, like any good devotional should be.

Reading the Gospels With the Church: From Christmas Through Easter
Raymond E. Brown
0867162686
August 1996
Paperback
·
 
Emmanuel, June 1998
Father Raymond Brown gives us a gem of biblical scholarship in popular form.

From the Publisher
What is the best way to get interested in Bible reading? Why not start with the passages that the Church reads to us in the seasons dedicated to the great events in the life of Christ: Christmas, Lent, Holy Week, Easter? That would truly be Reading the Gospels with the Church. This book with its reflections on the Gospels of these seasons offers a wonderful entry into appreciation of the Bible. And since many mainline Churches have the same Gospel readings on Sundays, it is a book that can serve all.

Career Development and Counseling : Putting Theory and Research to Work

Review
I would highly recommend Brown & Lent’s "Career development and counseling handbook: Putting theory and research to work" to students, practitioners, and researchers in Counseling Psychology and related fields. Some of the most outstanding senior scholars as well as promising newer voices in the field have contributed chapters. The range of topics is impressive and the quality of the contributions is uniformly high. I particularly admire the combination of career theory and practical applications, and the careful attention to diversity throughout the work. This is an absolutely outstanding contribution to the literature in career development and counseling.
—Gail Hackett, Vice Provost for Academic Personnel, Professor, Counseling Psychology, Arizona State University
