Download or read book Perceptions of the Imagine Nation: Pages of Poems, Puzzles, Riddles and Rhymes, & Even a Joke at Times written by Gerald Anthony Piché and published by Christian Faith Publishing, Inc.. This book was released on 2020-02-18 with total page 424 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: After the accident, I became a strict believer in the Almighty, believing the accident happened for a reason to change the sights I had for a useful life instead of being an architect that I went to school for and now forgotten. I would now have to look into some new direction. I had some writing experience to look at. I was going to Bible study groups once or twice a week, reading and working on what we read about, with some writing to sum up what was taught. In this writing, I started recreational work as to poetry. Some of this work was of thought "given," religious poems that had good themes. The time and place, I don't know what it means. There, a thought given is usually written, Reasoning for life is usually explained; thought for actions is then remained. As one to another time is a fence, actions portrayed some of defense, The mind was one that was given, the thought within is retained from living. A purpose has reason for a maker to see, sometimes your action is reason to be. Other times a purpose is that not in sight, making the choice not being right. Then again, age is a factor for how you choose, more in sight to win or to lose. Reasoning is many times unexplained, but a good thought was unrefrained. A thought in practice becomes a choice made; a mistake made is one to invade. Life is like a gamble then you die. Don't rock any cradle; don't make 'em cry. Live trying to give back to life; don't let it show. Love the beast; don't let it know. Have peace "for life" killing is banned. See the other side; I hear it's grand! Death is the last step we take; I hope you make it for both of our sakes. All of his instructions were given; your part is in the living. Amen. Earth is our onetime school; to learn God's love, obey his rule. All for our gain to love and learn, graduate in death prepared for our turn! Exclaimed with the happiness to see and rejoice, spirit lives have a voice. Heard for eternity, his promise fulfilled, that with action thought prewilled. You lived for a reason instead of gain in pleasing "yourself." The End of Book 1 Seeing The Real Nation Book 2 is further in-depth, More of a mind being prepped, For the soul to be swept Up, for God knows you cared.
Summary Book Review The Confluence of Wisdom Along the Silk Road by Mostafa Vaziri:
Download or read book The Confluence of Wisdom Along the Silk Road written by Mostafa Vaziri and published by Vernon Press. This book was released on with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For centuries along the vibrant cultural corridor of the Silk Road of Central Asia, philosophers and thinkers from Hellenic, Chinese and Indian traditions debated existential issues. Out of this stimulating milieu, the iconic poet-mathematician Omar Khayyam emerged in the eleventh century, advancing a transformative intercultural philosophy in his poetic work, the Rubaiyat. Vaziri traces the themes of Khayyam’s Rubaiyat back to the highly influential philosophical traditions of the Silk Road and uncovers fascinating parallels in original works by Heraclitus, Zhuangzi (Daoism), Nagarjuna (Mahayana Buddhism), and the Upanishads. In addition, Vaziri’s elegant translation and unique classification of the verses of the Rubaiyat reveal an existential roadmap laid out by Khayyam. In this pioneering volume, Vaziri not only fuses the multiple disciplines of literature, philosophy, culture, history and medicine but also takes the approach of the Rubaiyat to a new level, presenting it as a source of wisdom therapy that stands the test of time in the face of doubt and confusion, offering a platform for self-restoration.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As stated in Brion's introduction, these poems were written and intended as a testimonial of one man's life for his children and grandchildren. The poems grew into something bigger; seeing the importance for as God's word states in the Roman II, Timothy 3:16-17 all scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for the doctrine, for re-proof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be perfect thoroughly furnished unto all good works. Brion thanks his God for the inspiration he has given him on several of these poems. He thanks his daughters as workers and inspiration also. It has never been his intention to hurt anyone with his writings. If so, get over it and change your life as well. The last poem of this book is Brion's letter to any addict struggling to overcome a hard addictive behavior. Get and seek the help you need. Believe in the true God and please don't victimize your family. Brion hopes these readings have been enjoyable and inspirational, but most of all, this is and was his testimonial throughout time for his children and grandchildren of who their father and grandfather was.

Summary Book Review The Routledge Companion to Humanism and Literature by Michael Bryson:
Download or read book The Routledge Companion to Humanism and Literature written by Michael Bryson and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2022-03-31 with total page 310 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Routledge Companion to Humanism and Literature provides readers with a comprehensive reassessment of the value of humanism in an intellectual landscape. Offering contributions by leading international scholars, this volume seeks to define literature as a core expressive form and an essential constitutive element of newly reformulated understandings of humanism. While the value of humanism has recently been dominated by anti-humanist and post-humanist perspectives which focused on the flaws and exclusions of previous definitions of humanism, this volume examines the human problems, dilemmas, fears, and aspirations expressed in literature, as a fundamentally humanist art form and activity. Divided into three overarching categories, this companion will explore the histories, developments, debates, and contestations of humanism in literature, and deliver fresh definitions of "the new humanism" for the humanities. This focus aims to transcend the boundaries of a world in which human life is all too often defined in terms of restrictions—political, economic, theological, intellectual—and lived in terms of obedience, conformity, isolation, and fear. The Routledge Companion to Humanism and Literature will provide invaluable support to humanities students and scholars alike seeking to navigate the relevance and resilience of humanism across world cultures and literatures.
Summary Book Review Dictionary of the Old Testament: Wisdom, Poetry and Writings by TREMPER LONGMAN III:
Download or read book Dictionary of the Old Testament: Wisdom, Poetry and Writings written by TREMPER LONGMAN III and published by Inter-Varsity Press. This book was released on 2020-05-21 with total page 1665 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Old Testament books of wisdom and poetry carry themselves differently from those of the Pentateuch, the histories or the prophets. The divine voice does not peal from Sinai, there are no narratives carried along by prophetic interpretation nor are oracles declaimed by a prophet. Here Scripture often speaks in the words of human response to God and God's world. The hymns, laments and thanksgivings of Israel, the dirge of Lamentations, the questionings of Qohelet, the love poetry of the Song of Songs, the bold drama of Job and the proverbial wisdom of Israel all offer their textures to this great body of biblical literature. Then too there are the finely crafted stories of Ruth and Esther that narrate the silent providence of God in the course of Israelite and Jewish lives. This third Old Testament volume in IVP's celebrated "Black Dictionary" series offers nearly 150 articles covering all the important aspects of Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Psalms, Song of Songs, Lamentations, Ruth and Esther. Over 90 contributors, many of them experts in this literature, have contributed to the 'Dictionary of the Old Testament: Wisdom, Poetry and Writings'. This volume maintains the quality of scholarship that students, scholars and pastors have come to expect from this series. Coverage of each biblical book includes an introduction to the book itself as well as separate articles on their ancient Near Eastern background and their history of interpretation. Additional articles amply explore the literary dimensions of Hebrew poetry and prose, including acrostic, ellipsis, inclusio, intertextuality, parallelism and rhyme. And there are well-rounded treatments of Israelite wisdom and wisdom literature, including wisdom poems, sources and theology. In addition, a wide range of interpretive approaches is canvassed in articles on hermeneutics, feminist interpretation, form criticism, historical criticism, rhetorical criticism and social-scientific approaches. The 'Dictionary of the Old Testament: Wisdom, Poetry and Writings' is sure to command shelf space within arm's reach of any student, teacher or preacher working in this portion of biblical literature.

Summary Book Review Speaker and Authority in Old Norse Wisdom Poetry by Brittany Erin Schorn:
Download or read book Speaker and Authority in Old Norse Wisdom Poetry written by Brittany Erin Schorn and published by Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG. This book was released on 2017-07-10 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: While there is a long tradition of research into eddic poetry, including the poems classed as wisdom literature, much of this has approached the subject either as a primarily philological commentary or has addressed literary and thematic topics of individual or small groups of poems. This book offers a wide-ranging enquiry into the defining features of Old Norse wisdom, including the representation of wisdom in texts which cross traditional generic boundaries. It builds on recent advances in understanding of pre-Christian religion in Scandinavia, and calls on comparative and supporting work from several different disciplinary backgrounds (including literary theory, other medieval literatures and anthropology). Speaker and Authority interrogates important questions about the concept of knowledge, as well as its role in medieval Scandinavian society and its broader European cultural context.
Summary Book Review Poetry and the Anthropocene by Sam Solnick:
Download or read book Poetry and the Anthropocene written by Sam Solnick and published by Taylor & Francis. This book was released on 2016-09-19 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book asks what it means to write poetry in and about the Anthropocene, the name given to a geological epoch where humans have a global ecological impact. Combining critical approaches such as ecocriticism and posthumanism with close reading and archival research, it argues that the Anthropocene requires poetry and the humanities to find new ways of thinking about unfamiliar spatial and temporal scales, about how we approach the metaphors and discourses of the sciences, and about the role of those processes and materials that confound humans’ attempts to control or even conceptualise them. Poetry and the Anthropocene draws on the work of a series of poets from across the political and poetic spectrum, analysing how understandings of technology shape literature about place, evolution and the tradition of writing about what still gets called Nature. The book explores how writers’ understanding of sciences such as climatology or biochemistry might shape their poetry’s form, and how literature can respond to environmental crises without descending into agitprop, self-righteousness or apocalyptic cynicism. In the face of the Anthropocene’s radical challenges to ethics, aesthetics and politics, the book shows how poetry offers significant ways of interrogating and rendering the complex relationships between organisms and their environments in a world increasingly marked by technology.
