Books Description:

You are beginning to realize that your Christian life has become stale. Church, while good, does not seem to be hitting the mark. You pray and read your Bible. You try your best to be a good person and obey the commandments. You do all this as a good Christian should, but you feel empty. Where is God? You wonder, “Why doesn’t He answer my prayers?” Many Christians feel this way, and many of the ones who don’t feel this way, should. In Revelation 2:4 Jesus tells the Church of Ephesus: “you have left your first love”. How about you, have you left your first love? Would you like to return to Jesus, your first Love? Well, this book has something to say about that! It would be great if I could say to you, “just love Jesus more”, and that would solve your problems. I think you know that there is more to this story than that. We have a new Covenant with God through the shed blood of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Would you like to know what that Covenant is about? It is about a life of Faith in God. A life of Love, love of God first, and a love of others. It is a life lived with, of, and through God’s Holy Spirit who is within us. Do you want to know how to live this life? When you read this book you will find how God defines these terms: Faith, Love, and Spirit. Also you will discover the pattern of how God has provided His covenants, all pointing to our new covenant in Christ. You are being called to repent and to walk with God, a walk as He has created it to be! God is talking to you! Will you listen?

It has been a joy to write this memoir as a legacy for my son Dennis and my daughter Susan and my grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I have fantastic family and friends. I retired after 54 years as a public school teacher. I loved teaching eighthgraders. I feel that my students have given me more than I gave them. I have spent my years searching and growing and always trying to be a responsible person. I am living a charmed life. In my journey I have dealt with negatives such as alcoholism, divorce, death, codependency, and Alzheimer's. I am a child of an alcoholic; I married and divorced an alcoholic; I was a codependent. Alzheimer's is one of the cruelest diseases there is. The disease erased all that made my mom a unique human being. I hope my story can inspire. Sports have given me much pleasure. I love football, basketball, IRL racing, and NASCAR. My favorites are the Green Bay Packers, the Illini Dan Wheldon, Danica Patrick, Brett Favre, Jeff Gordon, and Jimmie Johnson. Traveling has been the most invigorating experience for me as I have traveled the US and the world. It was so neat to walk the Great Wall of China. I am living a very passionate, positive, and fulfilling life. It is not my age that defines me; it is what I do with my life. With love; my name is Arcelia.

Books Description:

The Parker Society was the London-based Anglican society that printed in fifty-four volumes the works of the leading English Reformers of the sixteenth century. It was formed in 1840 and disbanded in 1855 when its work was completed. Named after Matthew Parker -- the first Elizabethan Archbishop of Canterbury, who was known as a great collector of books -- the stimulus for the foundation of the society was provided by the Tractarian movement, led by John Henry Newman and Edward B. Pusey. Some members of this movement spoke disparagingly of the English Reformation, and so some members of the Church of England felt the need to make available in an attractive form the works of the leaders of that Reformation.

In Praise of Darwin

Author:J. David Pleins

Publisher:Bloomsbury Publishing USA


Total Pages:416



Books Description:

George John Romanes, close friend and colleague of Darwin, remains a misunderstood figure in the history of evolutionary science. Although his scientific contributions have been valued, his religious journey has been either neglected or misjudged. Scholars typically only acknowledge some of the work on theism he did at the very end of his life and usually blame his wife for doctoring the record with her pieties. Romanes's extensive poetry writing, much of it religious, has never been explored and his Memorial Poem to Darwin has been completely overlooked. The recent discovery of the original typescript of the poem, lost for more than a century and reprinted in this book for the first time, allows us to enter the mind of a major Darwinian as we watch him struggle to reconcile faith and science on a positive basis.

The Drama of Marriage

Books Description:

In studying performances of marriage in modern and contemporary British and American drama, Clum highlights the fact that - paradoxically - at a time when theatre was both popular entertainment and high culture, many of the most commercially and artistically successful plays about marriage were written by homosexual men. Beginning with Oscar Wilde and focusing on some of the most successful British and American playwrights of the past century, including Somerset Maugham, Noël Coward, Terence Rattigan, and Emlyn Williams in England and Clyde Fitch, George Kelly, Tennessee Williams, William Inge, and Edward Albee in the US, The Drama of Marriagelooks at how the plays they wrote about heterosexual marriage continue to impact contemporary gay playwrights and the depiction of marriage today.
