The Heavenly Table Book Description :

From Donald Ray Pollock, author of the highly acclaimed The Devil All the Time and Knockemstiff, comes a dark, gritty, electrifying (and, disturbingly, weirdly funny) new novel that will solidify his place among the best contemporary American authors. It is 1917, in that sliver of border land that divides Georgia from Alabama. Dispossessed farmer Pearl Jewett ekes out a hardscrabble existence with his three young sons: Cane (the eldest; handsome; intelligent); Cob (short; heavy set; a bit slow); and Chimney (the youngest; thin; ill-tempered). Several hundred miles away in southern Ohio, a farmer by the name of Ellsworth Fiddler lives with his son, Eddie, and his wife, Eula. After Ellsworth is swindled out of his family's entire fortune, his life is put on a surprising, unforgettable, and violent trajectory that will directly lead him to cross paths with the Jewetts. No good can come of it. Or can it? In the gothic tradition of Flannery O'Connor and Cormac McCarthy with a healthy dose of cinematic violence reminiscent of Sam Peckinpah, Quentin Tarantino and the Coen Brothers, the Jewetts and the Fiddlers will find their lives colliding in increasingly dark and horrific ways, placing Donald Ray Pollock firmly in the company of the genre's literary masters.

The Heavenly Table Book Description :

Cane, Cob and Chimney Jewett are young Georgia sharecroppers held under the thumb of their God-fearing father, Pearl. When he dies unexpectedly, they set out on horseback for Canada, robbing and looting their way to wealth and infamy. But little goes to plan and soon they?re pursued by both the authorities and the stories emanating from their trail of destruction - making the Jewett Gang out to be the most fearsome trio of murdering bank robbers in the Midwest. The truth, though, is far more complex than the legend. And the heaven they?ve imagined may in fact be worse than the hell they sought to escape.

El banquete celestial The Heavenly Table Book Description :

La nueva novela del norteamericano Donald Ray Pollock es un western que se mueve en el territorio de McCarthy, Faulkner y O'Connor, y que mezcla la s�tira con saludables dosis de violencia cinematogr�fica al m�s puro estilo de Peckinpah, Tarantino o los Cohen. A�o 1917, en alg�n lugar olvidado de la frontera entre Georgia y Alabama. El anciano Pearl Jewett muere dejando a sus tres hijos varones para que prosigan con sus miserables existencias. Hasta ahora han llevado una vida honrada, convencidos de que su rectitud ser�a recompensada con un suculento banquete en el Para�so. Pero los hermanos Jewett se han cansado de esperar al Cielo, e inspirados por las heroicas aventuras del villano literario Billy Bucket, ensillan sus caballos y atracan su primer banco. El banquete celestial se mueve en el territorio de McCarthy, Faulkner y O#Connor, y mezcla la s�tira con saludables dosis de violencia cinematogr�fica al m�s puro estilo de Peckinpah, Tarantino o los Cohen. Este western descarnado y desmesurado es tambi�n el retrato coral de una poblaci�n en v�as de adaptaci�n al nuevo siglo, un lugar repleto de posibilidades adonde, d�a tras d�a, llegan los voluntarios para alistarse a la Gran Guerra pero tambi�n un agujero que oculta peligros en los rincones m�s insospechados. Cr�ticas: �Una s�tira tumultuosa sobre nuestra fe desesperada en la modernidad y nuestra interminable capacidad para la crueldad y para albergar pretensiones absurdas... Aunque nos gustar�a pensar que todo esto pas� hace un siglo, el hecho es que esta condenada y divertida novela de Pollock entronca m�s que nunca con nuestro presente.� The New York Times �Leer las obras de Pollock es como situarse bajo una cascada de perversi�n humana. Todo el mundo es corrupto. Nadie se salva.� The Boston Globe �Con una prosa furiosa y un ojo faulkneriano para los personajes, Pollock llena su segunda novela de decenas de individuos memorables que encarnan el salto

To Deer at Swim Book Description :

Detailed by a slack neologist who's waiting to die but has "apparently hired a lazy assassin," puckish academics and the plotted theft of sex parts impel the multi-layered narrative hooey of this darkly comic, metafictive love story. Jamison Lee's debut novel, To Deer at Swim, tells the story of Benny Huckman-seemingly a human magnet for animal death-as he learns to cohabitate with Wentworth, his former gender studies instructor, now an expelled scholar unlearning the difference between sincerity and sarcasm; November, his vegan girlfriend, who's recently escaped her ex's rabid Marxism and frenzied plans of sexual reassignment; and a mouse who is at the flighty center of a battle between the will to dominate and the ability to empathize. Benny is unaware, however, that his story might end as suddenly as a cat in his path if the narrator's assassin finally comes through and settles, once and for all, this little debate regarding the death of the author.An uproarious and madcap satire that remarks on the violence of outgroup bias, gender injustice, and chauvinism in academia, this novel, not unlike the O'Brien masterpiece that inspired it, is just the kind of smut one would find being burned by militias and the national police: a work of remarkable wit that refuses the redress of cynicism for the fools that we so egregiously are.-Gabriel Gudding, author of Rhode Island Notebook & Literature for NonhumansTo Deer at Swim is what would happen if James Joyce and William Gass got together with a case of good whiskey and a fresh clone of David Goodis in some crummy Midwestern motel. A fantastic achievement! -Donald Ray Pollock, author of The Devil All the Time& The Heavenly Table

Fulfilled in Christ The Sacraments A Guide to Symbols and Types in the Bible and Tradition Book Description :

The Early Church read the Scriptures with the conviction that (in the words of St. Augustine), “The New Testament lies hidden in the Old and the Old Testament is unveiled in the New.” Drawing inspiration from how both the Apostles and Christ himself read the Old Covenant as referring to the New (cf. Luke 24:27, 1 Peter 3:20–21, 1 Corinthians 10:1–5), the Church found the Old Testament to be rich with figures, or “types,” that foreshadowed both the mysteries of the life of Christ and the mysteries, or sacraments, of the New Covenant. And yet, in modern times the study of types (or “typology”) has been largely abandoned by scholars due to the dangers of subjectivity and exaggeration. How can typology be studied in a way that is objective and that avoids the excesses present in the past? Fr. Devin Roza seeks to offer a solution to these difficulties by asking the question, “According to the Scriptures and the living Tradition of the Church, what are the types and symbols of the sacraments and what do they mean?” As authorized representatives of the living Tradition, the Liturgy (including the readings from the Church Fathers) and the Catechism, together with the Scriptures, offer both the scholar and pastor the opportunity to study typology as the Catholic Church herself understands and prays it today, in those texts the Church considers her own. Fulfilled in Christ thus offers a comprehensive and readable summary of references to types and symbols of the sacraments in the Scriptures and the living Tradition of the Church, as represented by the Liturgy and the Catechism. The result is a highly objective, scholarly, and at the same time pastoral study of how the Church understands and lives the types and symbols of the sacraments today.

Eschatology Liturgy and Christology Book Description :

"If Christian hope is reduced to the salvation of the soul in a heaven beyond death," wrote Jürgen Moltmann, "it loses its power to renew life and change the world, and its flame is quenched." Thomas Rausch, SJ, agrees, arguing that too often the hoped-for eschaton has been replaced by an almost exclusive emphasis on the "four last things"-death and judgment, heaven and hell. But eschatology cannot be reduced to the individual salvation. In his new book, Rausch explores eschatology's intersections with Christology, soteriology, ecclesiology, and, perhaps most intriguingly, liturgy. With the early Christians, he sees God's future as a radically social reality, already present initially in Christian worship, especially in the celebration of the Eucharist. This fresh and insightful work of theology engages voices both ancient and contemporary.

Wedding Haircut Book Description :

This book is about two intended weddings. A Saudi seeking Jesus tells his story covering the years 1999 to 2002 and ends with a haircut as part of his Arabic prenuptial traditions. Osman observes his roommate’s rehearsals for a very different wedding where the ritual haircut precedes martyrdom leading to carnal heavenly rewards. The hero is skeptical of this roommate’s belief where sensuality is mixed with fiery warnings against anyone daring to leave Islam. His San Diego based employer, “Uncle” Khaliil, a 1980’s Afghan munitions dealer, does little to restrain his power over his 27 year old protégé, especially interfering with Osman’s romance with Marie, his Mexicana sweetheart. San Diego provides the glamorous seaside locations where the homemade mosque and community college scenes take place but these balmy images are often interrupted by Tijuana border crises. Other borders are in Amman, Jordan, where Osman lands on 9/11 while holding an illegal passport. He is further victimized by this disastrous terror attack on Manhattan during a Sinbad-the-Sailor flight to California where the rapturous Marie awaits him. From benign hocus pocus untruths to outright deceptions, this novel features a litany of human failings. However, for Muslims and Christians, the “testing” of the Prophet of God, Abraham, becomes a model for sacred trusts. The Bible and Quran record a Father’s offering of his Son upon an altar as a symbol of the similarity and the disparity of the two holy books. Several citations from the Biblical and Quranic texts touch upon some gritty issues like Osman’s circumcision when he was 13 (Genesis 17:25, Quran 37:102); a delay based upon his mother’s vow for pre-1967 Jerusalem. Marie’s effervescent kiss will ultimately revive Osman from a death by drowning, during which he hears Jesus speaking, prepping him for his wedding as a newly washed, hairless babe.

Eucharistic Doctors Book Description :

Spanning two millennia, with particular attention to the post-Reformation period, and including key thinkers, both Catholic and non-Catholic, Eucharistic Doctors argues that the Eucharist "makes" the Church. The thirty "Eucharistic doctors" included in this volume are not doctors in the formal sense of the term, but in the broad Christian tradition of eucharistic thought. Ranging from the patristic age to contemporary time, and embracing both the Eastern and Western Churches, they include Ignatius of Antioch, Hippolytus, Ambrose, John Chrysostom, Augustine, Maximus the Confessor, Thomas Aquinas, Wyclif, Luther, Calvin, Thomas Cranmer, George Herbert, Bellarmine, Jeremy Taylor, Schleiermacher, Newman, and many more. Although they represent different geographical locations, time periods, languages, and traditions, they all have this in common: a recognition of the Eucharist as central to the Christian faith.

This collection documents examples of “distinctively Catholic” theological beliefs or doctrines in the Eastern Church fathers; that is, ones in harmony with historic Catholic teaching but differing in some way from one or more strains of Protestant theology or Eastern Orthodox views. Quotations will be drawn from the “Three Holy Hierarchs” of Eastern Christian Tradition: St. Basil the Great (c. 330-379), St. John Chrysostom (c. 345-407), and St. Gregory Nazianzen (c. 330-c. 390). St. Athanasius (c. 297-373) is usually added to this list, and these are the Four Great Eastern Doctors of the Church. Additionally, the following four fathers are included: St. Cyril of Alexandria (c. 376-444), St. Ephraim (c. 306-373), St. Cyril of Jerusalem (c. 315-387), and St. John Damascene (c. 676-749). All eight men are “Doctors” of the Catholic Church. Quotations are drawn from public domain works.

New Light From Heaven Book Description :

Messages From Heaven About the Future of Our World. Mary, God's Final Preacher, God is always trying to lead man away from self-destruction. He sends his preachers. He sends his teachers. But these are snuffed out. Their words are not listened to and their invitations are rejected. So, finally, he has sent me. I am his final teacher, his final prophet. I am his last opportunity to change the course of history. There is no one behind me, no other message, no other signs than the ones that I will give. When I tell the world that it must listen to me, I am not speaking from a selfish and arrogant spirit. I am speaking as one who sees the destruction, the hopelessness of mankind if my words are not heeded.
