Ish

Features an audio read-along!

Anytime. Anything. Anywhere. Drawing is what Ramon does. It¹s what makes him happy. But in one split second, all that changes. A single reckless remark by Ramon''s older brother, Leon, turns Ramon''s carefree sketches into joyless struggles. Luckily for Ramon, though, his little sister, Marisol, sees the world differently. She opens his eyes to something a lot more valuable than getting things just "right." Combining the spareness of fable with the potency of parable, Peter Reynolds shines a bright beam of light on the need to kindle and tend our creative flames with care.

The First Epistle of Peter

release date: Aug 07, 1990
The First Epistle of Peter
The First Epistle of Peter constitutes an important work of New Testament theology and pastoral care, serves as an example of how the early church applied Jesus’ sayings and the Old Testament writings to contemporary concerns, and presents some extremely useful perspectives on living the Christian life today. This commentary by Peter Davids does an excellent job of mining the rich wealth of instruction to be found in this very significant section of Scripture. Davids’s commentary contains several notable features: a unique grasp of 1 Peter’s structure, a systematically arranged introduction that summarizes the commentary proper, a perceptive excursus on suffering in 1 Peter and the New Testament, Davids’s own study translation, thorough and incisive comments on each verse of the test, frequent parallels to ancient literature, an exceptionally clear and lively writing style, and one of the most comprehensive bibliographies on 1 Peter available anywhere.

Davids firmly grasps the overall structure of these oft-maligned epistles and presents a strong case for 2 Peter and Jude as coherent, consistent documents. Marked by exceptional exegesis and sharp, independent judgments, Davids''s work both connects with the latest scholarship and transforms scholarly insights into helpful conclusions benefiting Christian believers.

The Spirit Who Speaks

release date: Sep 01, 2011
The Spirit Who Speaks
“One aspect of life in the Spirit that was essential for Peter was hearing the Spirit speak. Is there such a thing as a word from the Lord today? Can anyone hear God speak? How do we know it is God who is speaking? This book answers these questions.” –Carol Lawrence from her preface Peter Lawrence was a vicar in the Church of England for many years until his death in 2009. As he began to write this book about living fully in the Spirit’s healing power, he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Accepting God’s will with grace, he has left behind this moving account of the spiritual reality that radiated from him and touched many lives. Blending anecdote, self-effacing humor, and biblical teaching, Peter describes how he discovered the gift of receiving a “word” from God, and the amazing healings of spirit, mind, and body that resulted. And he shows how God’s Spirit can guide you—powerfully, personally, day by day.

Opening Minds
"Introducing a spelling test to a student by saying, ''Let''s see how many words you know,'' is different from saying, ''Let''s see how many words you know already.'' It is only one word, but the already suggests that any words the child knows are ahead of expectation and, most important, that there is nothing permanent about what is known and not known." — Peter Johnston Sometimes a single word changes everything. In his groundbreaking book Choice Words, Peter Johnston demonstrated how the things teachers say (and don''t say) have surprising consequences for the literate lives of students. Now, in Opening Minds: Using Language to Change Lives, Peter shows how the words teachers choose affect the worlds students inhabit in the classroom, and ultimately their futures. He explains how to engage children with more productive talk and to create classrooms that support not only students'' intellectual development, but their development as human beings. Grounded in research, Opening Minds: Using Language to Change Lives shows how words can shape students'' learning, their sense of self, and their social, emotional and moral development. Make no mistake: words have the power to open minds – or close them.

Vitalizing Nature in the Enlightenment

release date: Jun 06, 2005
Vitalizing Nature in the Enlightenment
This far-reaching study redraws the intellectual map of the Enlightenment and boldly reassesses the legacy of that highly influential period for us today. Peter Hanns Reill argues that in the middle of the eighteenth century, a major shift occurred in the way Enlightenment thinkers conceived of nature that caused many of them to reject the prevailing doctrine of mechanism and turn to a vitalistic model to account for phenomena in natural history, the life sciences, and chemistry. As he traces the ramifications of this new way of thinking through time and across disciplines, Reill provocatively complicates our understanding of the way key Enlightenment thinkers viewed nature. His sophisticated analysis ultimately questions postmodern narratives that have assumed a monolithic Enlightenment—characterized by the dominance of instrumental reason—that has led to many of the disasters of modern life.

The New Deal Lawyers

The New Deal Lawyers
Bitter conflict between New Dealers and their Old Guard opponents marked the first 4 years of Franklin D. Roosevelt''s presidency. Swept into office with a mandate to repair the ravages of the Depression, the New Deal Congress that began its "Hundred Days" session in March 1933 enacted an innovative package of legislation designed to revive a moribund economy. Debate on the programs of industrial and agricultural reconstruction that formed the core of the New Deal centered around the construction of broadly worded constitutional provisions and the allocation of power between the states and the federal government. The arena in which these issues were most heatedly contested was not, as one might expect, the chambers of Congress. Popular rejection of the charity-basket policies of the Republicans in the 1932 elections had reduced the once-grand old party to a vocal but ineffectual remnant in both wings of the Capitol. Commanding majorities of almost 3-1 in the House of Representatives and 2-1 in the Senate, the Democratic leadership in Congress easily deflected the rhetorical barbs of the GOP minority as it shepherded Roosevelt''s legislative program to passage. The real confrontation between New Dealers and their foes took place, rather, in federal courtrooms dominated by Republican judges wedded to the states-rights and laissez-faire ideologies repudiated overwhelmingly by the voters in three successive elections between 1932 and 1936. The 140 judges appointed by Roosevelt''s 3 Republican predecessors made up 3/4 of the district court bench and 2/3 of the appellate bench. It was this group, partisan in background and conservative in judicial philosophy, that constituted the most formidable barrier to the New Deal. - Introduction.
