Winner 2015 CIPA EVVY awards for Fiction/Fantasy. When a high-ranking officer gallops into the quiet Mistyvales, he brings a warning that shakes the countryfolk to their roots. But for Aedan, a scruffy young adventurer with veins full of fire and a head full of ideas, this officer is not what he seems. The events that follow propel Aedan on a journey that only the foolhardy or desperate would risk, leading him to the gates of the nation's royal academy - a whole world of secrets in itself. But this is only the beginning of his discoveries. Something is stirring in the land, something more ominous than the rising threat of hostile nations. Fearful travellers whisper of an ancient power breathing over Thirna, changing it, waking it. In the very heart of these stirrings, Aedan encounters that which defies belief, leaving him speechless with terror - and wonder..

This book is written for those who haven’t yet discovered the brilliance, humor, humility, and awe-filled writings of C.S. Lewis. Maybe one who has read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, but no other Narnia books. Or half of Mere Christianity and got side-tracked. Or has heard their pastor quote Lewis time and again and wonders “why?” Or thought: “what is the big deal about C.S. Lewis?” The author highlights the eight or ten most meaningful Lewis ideas that have transformed his life. Ideas such as “what real joy is” and “the presence of God in everyday occurrences” and “the secret to recovery of child-like wonder” and “the startling relevance of Lewis to today” and “how believing in Christ makes the most sense.” “I enjoyed reading this wondrous book about C.S. Lewis. It is ‘twice wondrous’ because it is a pleasure not only to read Rich Latta’s insights into C.S. Lewis’s books, but to enjoy the feeling that comes when a writer opens his heart so warmly as Rich has done. I decided I want what Rich Latta has uncovered in the second half of his life: the enjoyment of a new start in seeing and feeling the wonder of God. This enjoyment is God Himself: “more of God!” Rich writes. It is also a heartfelt awakening to all that is wondrous in the world that God made. Thank you, Rich. You have given the reader a gift of awakened wonder, theirs and yours.” —Bob Blincoe, PhD. President Emeritus, Frontiers.

Awakening contains the first three stories in the Ava Delaney series so far. A supernatural urban fantasy adventure. Thirst: Ava Delaney calls herself a hybrid - a living, breathing human who happens to have vampire poison running through her veins. The only thing greater than her thirst for human blood is her capacity for guilt. She does her best to avoid the human world, for everyone's sake. When Ava accidentally enslaves a human while saving him from a vampire, she realises she has to look for help setting him free. Despite her misgivings, she expands her world but finds herself dragged into a possible vampire civil war. With the help of some new friends with ambiguous loyalties, she tries to find a way to keep her human, and herself, alive. Taunt: All Ava wants to do is forget about the vampires, but they won’t leave her alone. Between her failing business, angry landlord, disloyal friends, and vampire stalkers, life is starting to feel pretty stressful. When Ava finally deals with her biggest problem, she is caught up in the chain of events it triggers and taken along a path she can’t escape from. Ava has to figure out what exactly is her biggest threat: the humans, the vampires, the Council—or her true heritage. Tempt: There’s a monster running around Dublin, and it’s up to Ava to catch it. The pressure’s on, and she’s becoming as cynical as Peter. But when a demon marks her friend, and a possible threat from England spells war, Ava’s left with a huge choice to make. The lives of one or many. With a little help, Ava has the chance to win all of her battles… if the darkness doesn’t take her over first. Volume one contains approx. 170,000 words..

'We have fallen out of belonging. Consequently, when we stand before crucial thresholds in our lives, we have no rituals to protect, encourage and guide us as we cross over into the unknown. For such crossings, we need to find new words. What is nearest to the heart is often farthest from the word. This book is an attempt to reach into that tenuous territory of change that we must cross...' In sharing words of profound grace and wisdom, master storyteller John O'Donohue's Benedictus offers blessings to shelter us as we confront the many challenges we face on our journey through life. Living in an anxious world - a world so often dominated by unwelcome change, unhappiness and even despair - many readers will find comfort in John O'Donohue's illuminating introductions, covering areas such as Beginnings, Desires, States of the Heart, Callings and Beyond Endings, and the blessings themselves provide an inspiring and reassuring new vision of possibility. It is also a vision of hope and belonging for this sometimes troubled world..

Joss Whedon once identified himself as an “angry, hard-line atheist” who is nevertheless “fascinated by the concept of devotion.” While organized religion seems to hold no satisfactory answers for Whedon, his dedication to exploring the meanings of faith and belief can be seen in many of the characters he has created for such works as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Serenity, and Fray. This work examines a variety of Whedon’s characters and discusses what can be learned from their struggles and discoveries regarding religion and belief. Part One focuses on the characters’ search for purpose, revealing how Dawn, Spike, and Angel attempt to define the meaning of their lives in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off, Angel. Part Two focuses on family, examining the unconventional family dynamic in Whedon’s comic book miniseries Fray and television series Firefly. Part Three centers around the concept of redemption, using Angel’s Doyle, Firefly’s Malcolm Reynolds and Shepherd Book, and Buffy’s Faith Lehane to examine the characters’ search for salvation and their own acceptance of their past actions. Finally, Part Four focuses on the harmful potential of religious zealotry, revealing the negative aspects of absolute belief through Firefly’s River and Buffy’s Caleb. A primary source guide follows the main text, providing the writer, director, and air date of each television episode, along with publication data for Whedon’s print works, including the in-publication “Season 8” comic books for Buffy the Vampire Slayer..

The book is a poetic and philosophic meditation on Thoreau’s work, highlighting a “Pedagogy of awakening”, that is, a path towards a non-dual and enlightening experience with Nature, a possible answer to the need of addressing the urgency and necessity of our troubled times. The urgency stems from a series of crises that humankind is now facing—epidemiological, environmental, social, political, economic; however, all those crises, as many have already observed, might be better understood as different faces, or different modes, of the same underlying crisis: the Anthropocene crisis, that is, the crisis whose ultimate origins lay at our feet, triggered by the way we, humans, inhabit—and impact—this world. It seems consensual that humankind has never faced such a terrible array of combined crises that, for the first time in history, puts our very survival as a species in danger. A dense fog has alighted on this small and beautiful blue planet, and one can only hope that the pains and suffering we have been through for so long are the pangs of a childbirth—a new beginning, a new promise—, and not the gaspings of a sclerotic organism that is on the brink of its final collapse. Thence, the necessity. The necessity of a new way of inhabiting this world. And I believe that an excellent guide to teach us how to do so is Henry David Thoreau..

These lively reflections on the lectionary readings for Year C affirm that all of us can listen for-and hear--God in the ordinary events of daily life. In a personal, poignant, and persuasive manner, Fran Salone-Pelletier probes the readings to make God's word relevant to readers here and now. Her writing is heart-felt and poetic, and it examines the full spectrum of human emotions and responses to the word of God. With each weekly meditation she offers questions for reflection and discussion and a prayer to help readers deepen their spiritual awareness and connection to the Sunday readings. This book can be used by individuals for spiritual reading and reflection, by Scripture study groups to facilitate discussion, for individual or communal retreats, for homily preparation, for breaking open the word with catechumens and candidates, and by any who wish to prepare for a more prayerful experience of Sunday liturgy..
