We were only three angry high school girls, to begin with. Alix, the hot-tempered surfer chick; Stephanie, the tree-hugging activist; and me, Meg, the quiet foster kid, the one who never quite fit in. We hardly knew each other, but each of us nurtured a burning anger: at the jerks in our class, at our disappointing parents, at the whole flawed, unjust world. We were only three angry girls, simmering uselessly in our ocean-side California town, until one day a mysterious, beautiful classmate named Ambrosia taught us what else we could be: Powerful. Deadly. Furious. Yes, that's us. The three Greek Furies, come to life, ready to take our revenge on everyone who deserves it. And who doesn't deserve it, really? We're done with chances. We are angry. The Furies have come to town. Jill Wolfson's Furious is an enthralling retelling of Greek myth.

Worldwide Fury! Up close and personal—these stories bring God’s supernatural love and protection closer to “real life” than you may have thought possible. Igniting Furious Love is an eclectic spiritual partnering of nine on-fire-for-God believers who “turn everything upside down in the church to be as unlike the world as absolutely possible.” Spanning the globe from Kosovo to Thailand, Russia, Mozambique, and inner-city USA, each writer has a unique story of their furious love for God as manifested in their lives. Through humorous stories, intelligent commentary, and real-life miracles and healings, the culmination of distinct voices and callings of these men and women range from witnessing a blood-drinking witch, confronting Buddhists with machetes, prostitution and gay bars—to lecturing at Cambridge University, experiencing victorious spiritual warfare, planting underground churches, and seeing people being raised from the dead. Exciting chapters and authors include: It’s All in the Delivery by Matteus Van Der Steen Called to Feed the Hungry by Heidi Baker Worldview Shakedown by Greg Boyd Raising the Dead by Rolland Baker I Will Get Him by Philip Mantofa Simply Love by Shampa Rice Witches, Babies, and Soldiers by Will Hart Stepping Stones by Angela Greenig Cradle to Coffin by Robby Dawkins Igniting Furious Love reveals God’s wildly soul-stirring plans for any who wants to know Him inside out.

You’re not defined by what you’ve done. You’re defined by Who pursues you. What if you could believe that God not only chases you, but has yet to leave your side for a second, has yet to go a minute without courting you, whispering in your heart, I’m right here? What if you could believe that God is never distant, never out of reach, never indifferent to what’s going on in your life? Would that make a difference in your relationship with him? And what if you could go a step further and believe that God’s pursuit has nothing to do with your level of faithfulness? He is just as near, and just as vigilant in his pursuit, regardless of your dedication to the spiritual disciplines, and in spite of your struggle with sin. Because of his nature, it is impossible for God not to pursue you. In Furious Pursuit, Tim King and Frank Martin invite you to lay down the smaller story of your life and instead tap into the Larger Story. To begin today by allowing God to transform the nature of your relationship with him. To stop chasing God and start embracing the Romance that is already well under way. Begin today!

Furious Lullaby

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 67

Furious Lullaby is both a celebration of and a eulogy to the body in the twenty-first century. The collection, which examines the larger concepts of salvation and temptation in a world of blossoming strife, includes a series of aubades – dramatic poems culminating with the separation of lovers at dawn. The lovers suffer a metaphysical crisis, seeking to know what is good, what is evil, and how to truly know the difference. Knowing, however, invites the terrible into their world. The Devil, a seductive trickster, haunts the landscape as a voice who dares each inquisitor to learn about mortality, morality, the beautiful, and the unspeakable through direct experience. Furious Lullaby offers a departure from the lighter prose poetry of de la Paz’ s Names above Houses and preserves the author’ s concern with the nature of human grace.

How the WPA and a Cast of Thousands Made High Art out of Desperate Times

Author: Susan Quinn

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA

ISBN: 0802779719

Category: History

Page: 336

View: 9280

Under the direction of a five-foot redheaded firecracker, Hallie Flanagan, the Federal Theater Project managed to turn a WPA relief program into a platform for some of the most inventive and cutting-edge theater of its time. This daring experiment by the U.S. government in support of the arts electrified audiences with exciting, controversial productions. Plays like Voodoo Macbeth and The Cradle Will Rock stirred up politicians by defying segregation and putting the spotlight on social injustice, and the FT P starred some of the greatest figures in twentieth-century American arts-including Orson Welles, John Houseman, and Sinclair Lewis. Susan Quinn brings to life the politics of this desperate era when FDR, Eleanor Roosevelt, and the chain-smoking idealist Harry Hopkins furiously improvised programs to get millions of hungry, unemployed people back to work. Quinn's compelling story of politics and idealism reaches a dramatic climax with the rise of Martin Dies and the House Un-American Activities Committee, which turned the FTP into the first victim of a Red scare that would roil the nation for the next twenty years.

“Addictively readable . . . Someday, when fewer people know Richard Pryor’s name, Furious Cool will be the best defense against the worst sort of forgetting--the kind that involves who we are now, who we loved once, and why.” —Esquire Richard Pryor was arguably the single most influential performer of the second half of the twentieth century, and certainly he was the most successful black actor/comedian ever. Controversial and somewhat enigmatic during his life, Pryor’s performances opened up a whole new world of possibilities, merging fantasy with angry reality in a way that wasn’t just new--it was theretofore unthinkable. Now, this groundbreaking and revelatory work brings him to life again both as a man and as an artist, providing an in-depth appreciation of his talent and his lasting influence, as well as an insightful examination of the world he lived in and the myriad influences that shaped both his persona and his art. “A testament to [Pryor’s] stature not only as an African-American entertainment idol but also as an American icon . . . The Henrys’ exuberant tribute may well evoke renewed interest in a performance genius who remade the face of American stand-up comedy.” —The New York Times Book Review “A sleek, highly literate biography that places the comic in the pop-cultural context of his times.” —Bloomberg News “Richard Pryor was the most free black man of the twentieth century. He also was a comic genius. This book gives the definitive reasons why he was so free and so sublime.” —Dr. Cornel West “David Henry and Joe Henry have brought Richard Pryor back to pulsating life, affirming both his humanity and his immortality as a comic--and tragic--genius . . . Furious Cool is a fabulous history, alive with fascinating characters.” —The Huffington Post

Dr. Judi Hollis, founder of the nation's first eating disorders hospital unit, reports that in thirty years of clinical practice, she has never met a starving or bingeing person who wasn't raging within. Why? What is the link between unexpressed anger and food obsession? In Fat and Furious, Dr. Hollis traces the rage back to the "mother-daughter wound" where, at the root of all disordered eating, is one painful truth-our mothers passed on lies about their own pain, making healthy separation for their daughters impossible. And when daughters cannot claim their lives, they try to sedate, control, and suppress themselves -with food. Dr. Hollis cautions that facing the mother-daughter wound does not mean blaming your mother. The challenge is to fearlessly confront the ways in which we are repeating the dynamics of the mother-daughter relationship in our lives today. Fat and Furious is not an answer book. It is a book that will teach you how to ask probing questions-the first step to self-healing. With the wisdom and guidance in Fat and Furious, you will begin to hear and trust your own inner voice-and you will never be hungry again.
