In Another View, there were only two men in Emma's life--her father, a remote artist in Cornwall who left her in boarding school and saw her every few years, and Christo, who had been her stepbrother for a few months, and now wanted to get to know her. But until Emma can understand what she means to them, there will never be room for love. When you read a novel by Rosamunde Pilcher you enter a special world where emotions sing from the heart. A world that lovingly captures the ties that bind us to one another-the joys and sorrows, heartbreaks and misunderstandings, and glad, perfect moments when we are in true harmony. A world filled with evocative, engrossing, and above all, enjoyable portraits of people's lives and loves, tenderly laid open for us...

With sharp, uncompromising logic and eye-opening insight, Niv analyzes the film and its script scene-by-scene to show why Life is Beautiful is very far from being the innocent, charming, and heartwarming film it appears to be. The author argues that the film not only lends support to the central arguments of Holocaust deniers, but is actually a quasi-theological, Christian parable which seeks to justify the extermination of Jews in the 20th century as divine punishment for the sin of the crucifixion of Jesus two thousand years ago. Life is Beautiful, But Not for Jews is a riveting book that simply and concisely raises some important and complex ideas about film and psychology in post-Holocaust civilization. It also serves as an elementary course in the appreciation of films and artistic texts in general and in deciphering their deeper meanings, teaching the reader to more clearly grasp the hidden significance of cultural processes.

These poems represent the musings of a man: an intelligent man, a world traveler, a man in his fifties going slightly mad from booze and grief and a perception of a world in a headlong rush to a future he does not understand and has no wish to. We know him only as "Tweed." But we're never sure whether he is speaking of Tweed himself, or Tweed as alter ego, and we see his world, perhaps our world, through his eyes. We wander with him in the past, sometimes in the present, and very rarely in the future. For him, there is no future, only the daily task of living it through, and this collection is a journey with him.

Another View is a study of revelation in which a fictional setting is used to explore revealed religion and its background. The fictional setting provides a narrative structure to what is otherwise a journey from the infinite past to the current situation as regards revelation in history and in philosophical/theological conceptual development. This book is not an exercise of exegesis but a source material is never treated lightly. Only the fictional setting has a patina of entertainment and some grounding in the world of solids. To wit, there are no footnotes scholarship is not intrusive, but it does build the book.

Teens need to hear the truth about homosexuality, not just the political spin. Maybe He's Not Gay gives them a step-by-step way to evaluate a potential American revolution. Is homosexuality just like any other lifestyle? Is it an inborn and unchanging identity? And what does Christianity really say about this behavior? Despite attempts to silence, distort and censor reasonable, conservative views about homosexuality, the youth of America deserve so much better. They deserve to see the complete picture. More and more young people are announcing "I'm gay" and deciding this is their identity, so it's time to take a closer look. It's a profound declaration, a new civil right (they are told) and it's "who you are." But there's a problem. Are we sure this is the truth? Does this identity bring the promised liberation and the key to a whole new life? Does it lift the burden of secrecy - or begin a different kind of struggle? Maybe He's Not Gay: Another View on Homosexuality by Linda Harvey addresses these critical questions. This book is for America's youth and the bright future they can all have, regardless of the turmoil of adolescence, which for some, may include same sex attractions or gender confusion. What do those feelings mean? Is there another possibility that transcends the seeming finality of a homosexual identity? Teens, college students, parents, youth group leaders and many others will appreciate the practical insights and faith perspective of Maybe He's Not Gay.

Living under a church pew can give you an interesting—and enlightened—view of Christianity – just as long as it doesn’t resemble what Amos calls, “church-ianity.” Amos is a mouse, but he doesn’t merely wander about, searching for communion crumbs. Amos is a philosopher, and he has plenty of time to consider the meaning of it all, especially since he also has plenty of opportunity hearing about the wisdom of life in Jesus. Amos is not just a philosopher; he is also a poet. Although he has some difficulty using a keyboard (he’s not fond of capital letters or punctuation marks), he has important things to discuss. In “Amos Meets an Agnostic,” the clever mouse tries to share his view of faith in God. “Life in the Pit” challenges us to realize that even bad days can be redeemed as part of God’s intended purpose. Amos adores free verse, almost as much as he loves talking about Jesus. He tackles everyday emotions, theological concepts, biblical issues, and current topics with the help of his church pew pals. When your house is beneath a church pew, you must retain a certain amount of wit to get by. Amos the philosopher has it, as well as an intelligent, Christian perspective on a world filled with dark corners, trap-door spiders, and lurking alley cats.
