Erina loved listening to her Uncle Bower’s stories, even now when she was only eight hafmons from adulthood. She loved the excitement, the adventure, the magic and the heroes, where good always conquered evil and the damsel was always rescued by the dashing knight. She was also certain none of those things would ever happen to her, safely trapped as she was in her quiet village life. She had no idea that every five thousand turings one person was required to save the world from decent into an eon of cruelty and suffering at the hands of the Shadis. Nor that she could be forced to take on such a perilous journey to the Isle of Cloud, where good and evil are not so easily identified, and where legends and monsters leap from their fairytales to become sword-wieldingly larger than life. The trigger in those tales was always by the arrival of a mythical creature, like a white unicorn, which Erina saw this morning… Start an adventure that will change the world, and possibly yourself.

"Johannes Scheffler assumed the name Angelus Silesius on his leaving the Lutheran church to become a Catholic. He became enmeshed in the bitter controversies of post-Reformation Europe. Soon after his death, however, his masterpiece was claimed by Protestants and Catholics alike as their mystical classic." "Frederick Franck shows the poets macro-ecumenical significance in the essay that introduces his translation of these verses, and by adding a "running commentary" of sayings by the ancient Japanese and Chinese masters, with whom this Christian mystic shows a remarkable affinity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Building the Human City is a first overview of the award-winning yet quite diverse works of Jesuit philosopher William F. Lynch. Writing from the 1950s to the mid-1980s, Lynch was among the first to warn against the fierce polarizations prevalent in our culture wars and political life. He called for a transformation of artistic and intellectual sensibilities and imaginations through the healing discernments and critical ironies of an Ignatian (and Socratic) spirituality. Yet the breadth of his concerns (from cinema and literature to mental health and hope to secularization and faith) as well as the depth of his thought (philosophical as much as theological) led to little initial awareness of the overall vision uniting his writings. This book, while exploring that vision, also argues that the spirituality Lynch proposes is more needed today than when he first wrote.
