Morgaine, gifted with the Sight and fated with her brother-lover's doom, recounts the glorious tragedy of Camelot's brief flowering - not as a tale of knightly deeds, but as a woman's rounded view of society in the crucible of change. Through the lives of pious Guinevere, ambitious Morgouse, austere Viviane and her successor as Lady of the Lake, Morgaine herself, this rich and haunting epic reveals a greater threat to the idyll than the Saxons. For the spread of patriarchal Roman ways and a narrow Christianity seem likely to alienate the Old People, and drive the ancient worship of the Mother forever into the mists...

The five wisdom books of the Old Testament are distinctly different from each other, but have as a unifying theme a contrast between “the righteous” and “the ungodly,” and not simply between “the wise” and “the fool.” Job is a dialogue that wrestles with why a righteous person suffers. Psalms, the most beloved book of the Old Testament, is a hymnbook. Proverbs contains practical, everyday philosophy. Ecclesiastes is a monologue about the apparent futility of life. And the Song of Solomon is a drama that extols the preciousness of human love. The Open Your Bible Commentary was written to encourage daily Bible study. Each reading is short, but the content is rich with careful explanation, devotional warmth, and practical relevance. More than 200 daily readings let you explore all five wisdom books in depth. The Open Your Bible Commentary has four great strengths: * Accessible – it’s written for the average, thoughtful Christian without assuming a great deal of background, yet it is never superficial. * Digestible – it’s written so you can read a section or two a day, working your way through an entire book of the Bible in days or weeks. * Dependable – it’s written by an amazing group of scholars and trusted pastor-teachers. * Practical – it’s a rich combination of specific application and encouragement to listen to God for guidance. Commentary for each of the five wisdom books of the Old Testament is introduced by an overview, summary, outline, key themes, and relevance of that book for today.

The Screwtape Letters by C.S.

At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation—and triumph over it—ever written.

This Student Edition of The Crucible is perfect for students of literature and drama and offers an unrivalled guide to Miller's classic play. It features an extensive introduction by Susan C. W. Abbotson which includes: a chronology of Miller's life and times; a summary of the plot and commentary on the characters, themes, language, context and production history of the play. Together with over twenty questions for further study, detailed notes on words and phrases from the text and the additional scene 2 of the second Act, this is the definitive edition of the play. In a small tight-knit community gossip and rumour spread like wildfire inflaming personal grievances until no-one is safe from accusation and vengeance. The Crucible is Miller's classic dramatisation of the witch-hunt and trials that besieged the Puritan community of Salem in 1692. Seen as a chilling parallel to the McCarthyism and repressive culture of fear that gripped America in the 1950s, the play's timeless relevance and appeal remains as strong as when the play opened on Broadway in 1953.

In 1965 the Second Vatican Council declared that God loves the Jews. Yet the Church had taught for centuries that Jews were cursed by God, and had mostly kept silent as Jews were slaughtered by Nazis. How did an institution whose wisdom is said to be unchanging undertake one of the largest, yet most undiscussed, ideological swings in modern history?
