East of Eden Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

A masterpiece of Biblical scope, and the magnum opus of one of America’s most enduring authors, in a commemorative hardcover edition In his journal, Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck called East of Eden "the first book," and indeed it has the primordial power and simplicity of myth. Set in the rich farmland of California's Salinas Valley, this sprawling 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. The masterpiece of Steinbeck’s later years, East of Eden is a work in which Steinbeck created his most mesmerizing characters and explored his most enduring themes: the mystery of identity, the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love's absence. Adapted for the 1955 film directed by Elia Kazan introducing James Dean, and read by thousands as the book that brought Oprah’s Book Club back, East of Eden has remained vitally present in American culture for over half a century.

Eden's Other Residents Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

The Bible teems with nonhuman life, from its opening pages with God's creation of animals on the same day and out of the same earth as humans to its closing apocalyptic scenes of horses riding out of the sky. Animals are Adam's companions, Noah's shipmates, and Elijah's saviors. They are at the center of ancient Israel's religious life as sacrifices and yet, as Job discovers, beyond human dominion. It is an animal that saves Balaam from certain death by an angel's hand, and an animal that carries Jesus into Jerusalem. The Creator declares all of them good at the beginning, and since the Apostle Paul writes of God's eternal purposes for all things on earth, they are somehow part of a hoped-for eschatological restoration. So why are animals so often ignored in Christian moral discourse? In its theological thinking and faith-motivated praxis, human-centeredness typically results in the complete erasure of the nonhuman. This book argues that this exclusion of animals is problematic for those who see the Bible as authoritative for the religious life. Instead, biblical literature bears witness to a more inclusive understanding of moral duty and faith-motivated largesse that extends also to Eden's other residents.

Eden's Edge Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

June 5th 1951...it is a warm summer morning in the quiet little town of Eden’s Edge, North Carolina, and Lisanne Walters has just stumbled upon the mutilated body of Jared Michaels. A member of one of the most prominent families in town, the victim seemingly has no enemies. But, if that was true, why would someone torture him and dump his naked body in the middle of Town Square? That is one of the many questions SBI Detective Donovan Wolf intends to answer during his stay in this quaint town. As he investigates, he quickly learns that things are not exactly as they seem. The town is shrouded in secrecy and steeped in religious fanaticism. While there is no shortage of suspects, there is only circumstantial evidence. To make matters worse, the townspeople seem more intent on gossip than finding the killer. As he deals with false leads and hidden threats from the murderer, Wolf struggles to make sense of the evidence and fight against his own self-doubt. Will he ever find the evidence he needs to bring Jared’s killer to justice or will this murder become just another unsolved case? When Wolf finally comes face to face with the killer, he begins the fight of his life. If he wins, the killer will be brought to justice and Jared will be vindicated. If he loses, he will become the killer’s second victim and the truth will die with him.

Summary of John Matteson's Eden's Outcasts Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Bronson Alcott’s life was shaped by three significant events that occurred within a short period of time in 1828: he paid his first visit to the city of Boston, he first heard the preaching of a young Unitarian minister named Ralph Waldo Emerson, and he proposed marriage to a fascinating woman named Abigail May. #2 Bronson’s school days were interrupted by a total solar eclipse in 1806. He and a group of boys gathered stones to throw at the phenomenon. He stepped awkwardly, dislocating his shoulder blade. More than sixty years later, he recalled this accident as a prophecy of his life. #3 Bronson Alcott grew up on Spindle Hill, and he loved it. It was there that he learned about the world and his parents’ farm, which he found to be a perfect place for him to grow up. #4 Bronson was eventually able to get away from his small town and go to the local school, but he was still confined to the small range of thought that a small, isolated town could provide. He began looking for ways to distance himself intellectually from his environment.

Mother of Eden Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

“We speak of a mother’s love, but we forget her power.” Civilization has come to the alien, sunless planet its inhabitants call Eden. Just a few generations ago, the planet’s five hundred inhabitants huddled together in the light and warmth of the Forest’s lantern trees, afraid to venture out into the cold darkness around them. Now, humanity has spread across Eden, and two kingdoms have emerged. Both are sustained by violence and dominated by men – and both claim to be the favored children of Gela, the woman who came to Eden long ago on a boat that could cross the stars, and became the mother of them all. When young Starlight Brooking meets a handsome and powerful man from across Worldpool, she believes he will offer an outlet for her ambition and energy. But she has no inkling that she will become a stand-in for Gela herself, and wear Gela’s fabled ring on her own finger—or that in this role, powerful and powerless all at once, she will try to change the course of Eden’s history.

Eden and the Individual: Christianity for the 21st Century Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

Even more than we might realize, the Garden of Eden story has supplied the foundation for Western civilization ever since the Roman Emperor Theodosius the Great granted the orthodox version of Christianity imperial support in the fourth century AD. Faced with the scientific and economic challenges of the 21st century, however, it's time to revisit our traditional understanding of our Christian heritage. St. Augustine's monumental work, "The City of God," built on his original sin interpretation of the Garden of Eden story, traditionally defined the role of the responsible individual living within the resulting, orthodox structure. But what is the role of such an individual living in an era that has witnessed the waning of the power and influence of that institutional authority-the authority built on Augustine's persuasive interpretation of the events described in the Garden of Eden story? Without throwing the baby out with the bath water, and by paying homage to Augustinian sacrifice and commitment to belief, Eden and the Individual: Christianity for the 21st Century explores that question. In the process it offers creative conclusions directed toward enhancing the meaning, and value, of individual lives. Given a fresh sense of purpose, every individual can then work toward creating, and preserving, the order and structure that have governed collective Western life. "In this awe-inspiring chronicle, indeed revelation of Christianity Misapplied, Mr. Mihelich, courageously, has given us a pearl to keep for ourselves. And we must."

The Storyteller and the Garden of Eden Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

The story of the Garden of Eden is one of the most familiar in the Bible. But if we read it without preconceptions, we discover a narrative as its original audience would have heard it, as its author intended. Robbins explores why the man was created first, and the woman for and from him. She elucidates the reason for the particular punishments, and why the storyteller gave a woman the starring role. She does all this by highlighting the importance of wordplay in the Garden of Eden story. This book introduces not only a wordsmith but, above all, a supreme storyteller who is bound to become a personal favorite.
