    The narnian

    The narnian : the life and imagination of C.S. Lewis

    Jacobs, Alan, 1958-

    "The White Witch, Aslan, fauns and talking beasts, centaurs and epic battles between good and evil -- all these have become a part of our collective imagination through the classic volumes of The Chronicles of Narnia. Over the past half century, children everywhere have escaped into this world and delighted in its wonders and enchantments. Yet what we do know of the man who created Narnia? This biography sheds new light on the making of the original Narnian, C. S. Lewis himself. Lewis was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential religious writer of his day. An Oxford don and scholar of medieval literature, he loved to debate philosophy at his local pub, and his wartime broadcasts on the basics of Christian belief made him a celebrity in his native Britain. Yet one of the most intriguing aspects of Clive Staples Lewis remains a mystery. How did this middle-aged Irish bachelor turn to the writing of stories for children -- stories that would become among the most popular and beloved ever written? Alan Jacobs masterfully tells the story of the original Narnian. From Lewis's childhood days in Ireland playing with his brother, Warnie, to his horrific experiences in the trenches during World War I, to his friendship with J. R. R. Tolkien (and other members of the "Inklings"), and his remarkable late-life marriage to Joy Davidman, Jacobs traces the events and people that shaped Lewis's philosophy, theology, and fiction. The result is much more than a conventional biography of Lewis: Jacobs tells the story of a profound and extraordinary imagination. For those who grew up with Narnia, or for those just discovering it, The Narnian tells a remarkable tale of a man who knew great loss and great delight, but who knew above all that the world holds far more richness and meaning than the average eye can see."--Publisher's website

    Life together in Christ

    Life together in Christ : experiencing transformation in community

    Barton, R. Ruth, 1960-, author.

    Have you joined a church or small group in hopes of experiencing real life change, only to be disappointed? Have you sat through inspiring sermons about what is possible when Christians gather together in mutually edifying relationships, only to recognize how cynical you have become after many failed attempts? Community may be one of the most over-promised, under-delivered aspects of the Christian life today. Individuals remain selfish and stuck in their ways. Communities become spiritually lifeless or even fall apart because we don't know how to experience transformation together. Transforming community does not come primarily from listening to inspiring preaching or adding another church program. It emerges as we embrace a shared commitment to the attitudes, practices and behaviors that open us to Christ in our midst. And that's where Life Together in Christ comes in. Reflecting on the story of the two disciples who meet Christ on the Emmaus Road, Ruth Haley Barton offers this interactive guide for small groups of spiritual companions who are ready to encounter Christ in transforming ways -- right where they are on the road of real life.

    Halftime : moving from success to significance

    Buford, Bob, author.

    "Are you ready to move into the second half of your life? Bob Buford believes the second half of your life can be better than the first. Much better. But first, you need time to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life. In Halftime, Buford focuses on this important time of transition--the time when, as he says, a person moves beyond the first half of the game of life. It's halftime, a time of revitalization and for catching a new vision for living the second half, the half where life can be lived at its most rewarding. As Buford explains, "My passion is to multiply all that God has given me, and in the process, give it back."--Publisher.

    Grace : more than we deserve, greater than we imagine

    Lucado, Max.

    In this book the author, America's pastor defines God's grace and illuminates the changes it can bring into a person's life. Grace. We talk as though we understand the term. The bank gives us a grace period. The seedy politician falls from grace. Musicians speak of a grace note. We describe an actress as gracious, a dancer as graceful. We use the word for hospitals, baby girls, kings, and premeal prayers. We talk as though we know what Grace means. But do we really understand it? Have we settled for wimpy Grace? It politely occupies a phrase in a hymn, fits nicely on a church sign. Never causes trouble or demands a response. When asked, "Do you believe in Grace?" who could say no? In this book, the author asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by Grace? Shaped by Grace? Strengthened by Grace? Emboldened by Grace? Softened by Grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by Grace? God's Grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white water, riptide, turn you upside downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From insecure to God secure. From regret riddled to better because of it. From afraid to die to ready to fly. The author here makes an effort to help us understand that Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off, that Grace is another word for God's reservoir of strength and protection, and that God has enough grace to pardon every sin, solve every dilemma, wipe every tear, and answer every question.

    The long journey to Jake Palmer

    Rubart, James L.

    "What if a balm for your greatest pain appeared in a lost corridor on the far side of a remote lake? Would you search for it? Or dismiss it as nonsense? Jake Palmer's annual lake-house vacation with longtime friends was supposed to be relaxing--it was supposed to take his mind off his recent divorce. But when he meets an elderly man early one morning on the lake, his world tips on its side. The old man claims there's a forgotten corridor at the far end of the lake that few ever discover. But for those who do, and follow to where it leads, they'll find answers to their deepest questions of loss. At first, the search just seems like a distraction. But does he really want to find it? The Long Journey to Jake Palmer explores profound loss and how to take hold of real hope when there seems to be none"-- Provided by publisher.
