There is but one king that I know. It is he whom I love and worship. If I were to be killed a thousand times for my loyalty to him, I would still be his servant. Christ is on my lips, Christ is in my heart; no amount of suffering will take him from me.--Genesius of Rome These are more than lofty words. They are a reflection of ultimate faith spoken by a person staring death in the face. Like a flaming torch, they illuminate for us the reality the martyrs saw, the truth that gripped their hearts and lifted their eyes to heaven in the face of fire, sword, and executioner's axe. biographies of sixty Christians who died for their faith, from Stephen, the church's first martyr, to Bahram Dehqani-Tafti of Iran, who was shot to death in 1981. In today's age of uncertainty, spiritual pluralism, and self-indulgence, the words of the martyrs remind us of the worthiness of Jesus and the costliness of the gospel. They humble us with their commitment. They fortify our faith with their honesty and certitude. And they direct our vision toward eternal realities that far outshine anything this world has to offer.

The Bible and the Business of Life is a volume to honor Robert Banks on his 65th birthday and to mark his retirement as Director of Macquarie Christian Studies Institute at Macquarie University. Banks is perhaps Australia's most original theologian, having written seminal books such as Paul's Idea of Community, The Tyranny of Time, and The Complete Book of Everyday Christianity. In this book's three areas of exegesis, ecclesiology, and everyday life a distinguished caste of friends bridge the alleged gap between the Bible and the Business of Life. They address such issues as the living oral nature of the Christian tradition, the interaction between Ecclesiastes and contemporary film, the theology of vocation in Dorothy Sayers and a postmodern world, leadership, family, education, and verandahs and humane housing design. All with a coherence provided by the Bible, Banks' highly integrated thought, and its influence upon the contributors.

Prepare to fall in love with Binti. --Neil Gaiman

Winner of the Hugo Award and the Nebula Award for Best Novella!

Her name is Binti, and she is the first of the Himba people ever to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. But to accept the offer will mean giving up her place in her family to travel between the stars among strangers who do not share her ways or respect her customs.

Knowledge comes at a cost, one that Binti is willing to pay, but her journey will not be easy. The world she seeks to enter has long warred with the Meduse, an alien race that has become the stuff of nightmares. Oomza University has wronged the Meduse, and Binti's stellar travel will bring her within their deadly reach.

If Binti hopes to survive the legacy of a war not of her making, she will need both the gifts of her people and the wisdom enshrined within the University, itself -- but first she has to make it there, alive.

"Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he'd had three months to write. It was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, 'Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.'"

"Superb writing advice... hilarious, helpful and provocative." -- "New York Times Book Review."

"A warm, generous and hilarious guide through the writer's world and its treacherous swamps." -- "Los Angeles Times."

"A gift to all of us mortals who write or ever wanted to write... sidesplittingly funny, patiently wise and alternately cranky and kind -- a reveille to get off our duffs and start writing "now," while we still can." -- "Seattle Times."

    A handbook to help seminarians grow in love for God as they study

    Theological education can cool your love for the Lord. It's sad but true. Learning that is not fully integrated into your daily life and patterns of living can lead to spiritual detachment. On the other hand, theological studies that are properly processed over time (with sufficient time for reflection and service) can aid your loving service toward God and others. As you enter into a theological program (seminary, divinity school, or other graduate studies), make a plan to help you balance the head knowledge with heart patterns.

    With seasoned advice from seminary veterans, discussions include such pressing questions as, "Is seminary still relevant for today?" and "How are today's Christian leaders really being formed?" This helpful resource also considers the potential danger of doing seminary 100 percent online. Blessed Are the Balanced will guide you as you learn to pursue both scholarship and the Kingdom.

    The most poignant of all De Vries's novels, The Blood of the Lamb is also the most autobiographical. It follows the life of Don Wanderhop from his childhood in an immigrant Calvinist family living in Chicago in the 1950s through the loss of a brother, his faith, his wife, and finally his daughter-a tragedy drawn directly from De Vries's own life. Despite its foundation in misfortune, The Blood of the Lamb offers glimpses of the comic sensibility for which De Vries was famous. Engaging directly with the reader in a manner that buttresses the personal intimacy of the story, De Vries writes with a powerful blend of grief, love, wit, and fury.
