East of Eden Book Review:

The masterpiece of Steinbeck’s later years, East of Eden is a sprawling epic in which his most mesmerizing characters and enduring themes were created and explored: the mystery of identity, the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love’s absence. Set in the rich farmland of California’s Salinas Valley, this expansive and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families, the Trasks and the Hamiltons, whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel. East of Eden was a 1955 film introducing James Dean, the book that revived Oprah’s Book Club, considered by Steinbeck to be his magnum opus, and has remained vitally present in American culture for over half a century. Penguin Random House Canada is proud to bring you classic works of literature in e-book form, with the highest quality production values.

The Deuteronomistic History and the Name Theology Book Review:

This monograph is a comparative, socio-linguistic reassessment of the Deuteronomic idiom, leshakken shemo sham, and its synonymous biblical reflexes in the Deuteronomistic History, lashum shemo sham, and lihyot shemo sham. These particular formulae have long been understood as evidence of the Name Theology - the evolution in Israelite religion toward a more abstracted mode of divine presence in the temple. Utilizing epigraphic material gathered from Mesopotamian and Levantine contexts, this study demonstrates that leshakken shemo sham and lashum shemo sham are loan-adaptations of Akkadian shuma shakanu, an idiom common to the royal monumental tradition of Mesopotamia. The resulting retranslation and reinterpretation of the biblical idiom profoundly impacts the classic formulation of the Name Theology.

Out of Babylon Book Review:

"One of the persistent questions for people of faith throughout history is how are we to live faithfully in the empires of the world? In Out of babylon, Walter Brueggemann, one of the best interpreters of the Hebrew Bible, takes a fresh look at the prophetic paradigm of exile and restoration in Babylon and the realism of balancing `resistance' and `accommodation' in Persia, examining characters like Daniel and Esther. He asks what those biblical precedents might mean for living within `American Empire,' prompting reflections and lessons for Christians who reside in the midst of the world's last remaining super-power." Jim Wallis, President of Sojourners and author of God's Politics and Rediscovering Values "If Left Behind eschatology and the politics of Christian Zionism represent the worst and least responsible in applying biblical texts to contemporary realities, to whom would we turn to find the best and most responsible? Surely we would turn to Walter Brueggemann, and this new book would provide a primer---not only in its material conclusions but also in its manner of reaching them. Brueggemann offers his signature biblical insight and writes with exceptional vigor." Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity (brianmclaren.net) "Walter Brueggemann is stunningly brilliant here. Besides surveying most of the First Testament prophets to show the relationship of the contemporary Church to the metaphor of `Babylon,' this volume takes some surprising turns and gives us fresh directions. Out of Babylon is a must for All Christians!" Marva Dawn, author of Keeping the Sabbath Wholly, Being Well When We're lll, and In the Beginning GOD "This book drips with prophetic flavor and imagination. For decades, Brueggemann has been a gentle, steadfast voice in the wilderness---inviting cultural refugees, political misfits, and religious burnouts to set up camp and build a new world. In an age that is growing tired of militarism and materialism, here is a book that dares you not only to say NO to the empire but to say YES to another world. Let this book inspire you to look from a distance at Babylon as the falls and Wall Street as she falters and sing songs of deliverance and freedom, songs about the God who lifts up the lowly and casts the mighty from their thrones; these are the songs of Zion."

Journal of a Novel Book Review:

Each working day from January 29 to November 1, 1951, John Steinbeck warmed up to the work of writing East of Eden with a letter to the late Pascal Covici, his friend and editor at The Viking Press. It was his way, he said, of "getting my mental arm in shape to pitch a good game." Steinbeck's letters were written on the left-hand pages of a notebook in which the facing pages would be filled with the test of East of Eden. They touched on many subjects—story arguments, trial flights of workmanship, concern for his sons. Part autobiography, part writer's workshop, these letters offer an illuminating perspective on Steinbeck's creative process, and a fascinating glimpse of Steinbeck, the private man.

Kid Activists Book Review:

Moving, relatable, and totally true childhood biographies of Martin Luther King Jr., Susan B. Anthony, Helen Keller, Malala Yousafzai, and 12 other inspiring activists. Every activist started out as a kid—and in some cases they were kids when their activism began!

Dolores Huerta was once wrongly accused of plagiarizing in school. Kid Activists tells these childhood stories and more through kid-friendly texts and full-color cartoon illustrations on nearly every page. The diverse and inclusive group encompasses Susan B. Anthony, James Baldwin, Ruby Bridges, Frederick Douglass, Alexander Hamilton, Dolores Huerta, Helen Keller, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Iqbal Masih, Harvey Milk, Janet Mock, Rosa Parks, Autumn Peltier, Emma Watson, and Malala Yousafzai.
