Jesus Outside the Box

Twelve Spiritual Tales of the Unexpected

Author: Mark Townsend

Publisher: John Hunt Publishing

ISBN: 1846943264

Category: Fiction

Jesus Outside the Box is a re-released, re-titled version of the author's previous book The Magician's Tale. It a short book of twelve incredible stories written from the perspective of some of the lesser known characters of the New Testament. Each story offers an exciting and radical new portrait of the one we call The Christ. The author's intention was to present a picture of Jesus, without the 2,000 of Christian doctrine and dogma that have put him some great ecclesiastical box (and suffocated him the process). The Jesus of these tales has broken free from that box of Churchianity and will help readers do the same. This Jesus is human yet magical, gentle yet dangerous, distrustful of religion, yet unconditionally loving. He is exciting beyond our dreams. You may just discover that you'd thrown the divine baby out with the holy water.

Interviews with Contemporary Cartoonists

We are living in a golden age of cartoon art. Never before has graphic storytelling been so prominent or garnered such respect: critics and readers alike agree that contemporary cartoonists are creating some of the most innovative and exciting work in all the arts. For nearly a decade Hillary L. Chute has been sitting down for extensive interviews with the leading figures in comics, and with Outside the Box she offers fans a chance to share her ringside seat. Chute’s in-depth discussions with twelve of the most prominent and accomplished artists and writers in comics today reveal a creative community that is richly interconnected yet fiercely independent, its members sharing many interests and approaches while working with wildly different styles and themes. Chute’s subjects run the gamut of contemporary comics practice, from underground pioneers like Art Spiegelman and Lynda Barry, to the analytic work of Scott McCloud, the journalism of Joe Sacco, and the extended narratives of Alison Bechdel, Charles Burns, and more. They reflect on their experience and innovations, the influence of peers and mentors, the reception of their art and the growth of critical attention, and the crucial place of print amid the encroachment of the digital age. Beautifully illustrated in full-color, and featuring three never-before-published interviews—including the first published conversation between Art Spiegelman and Chris Ware—Outside the Box will be a landmark volume, a close-up account of the rise of graphic storytelling and a testament to its vibrant creativity.

Thinking Outside the Box brings together some of the best and most challenging scholarship about TV genres, exploring their genesis, their functions and development, and the interaction of disparate genres. The authors argue that genre is a process rather than a static category and that it signifies much about the people who produce and watch the shows. In addition to considering traditional genres such as sitcoms, soap operas, and talk shows, the contributors explore new hybrids, including reality programs, teen-oriented science fiction, and quality dramas, and examine how many of these shows have taken on a global reach. Identifying historical continuities and envisioning possible trends, this is the richest and most current study of how television genres form, operate, and change.

Why Our Children Need Real Food, Not Food Products

Author: Jeannie Marshall

Publisher: Random House Canada

ISBN: 0307360059

Category: Family & Relationships

Page: 256

View: 1481

A lively, cross-cultural look at the way packaged and fast foods are marketed to our kids--and a meditation on how our eating habits and our family lives are being changed in the process. When Canadian journalist Jeannie Marshall moved to Rome with her husband, she delighted in Italy's famous culinary traditions. But when Marshall gave birth to a son, she began to see how that food culture was eroding, especially within young families. Like their North American counterparts, Italian children were eating sugary cereal in the morning and packaged, processed, salt- and fat-laden snacks later in the day. Busy Italian parents were rejecting local markets for supermercati, and introducing their toddlers to fast food restaurants only too happy to imprint their branding on the youngest of customers. So Marshall set on a quest to discover why something that we can only call "kid food" is proliferating around the world. How did we develop our seemingly insatiable desire for packaged foods that are virtually devoid of nutrition? How can even a mighty food culture like Italy's change in just a generation? And why, when we should and often do know better, do we persist in filling our children's lunch boxes, and young bodies, with ingredients that can scarcely even be considered food? Through discussions with food crusaders such as Alice Waters, with chefs in Italy, nutritionists, fresh food vendors and parents from all over, and with big food companies such as PepsiCo and Nestle, Marshall gets behind the issues of our children's failing nutrition and serves up a simple recipe for a return to real food.

In football, numbers are everywhere. From touches in the opposition box to expected goals, clear-cut chances to win-loss ratios. In the modern game, these numbers help provide the narrative, the drama, and the conversation. They are scrutinised in order to justify results and to predict future outcomes. They even dictate transfer policy and drive clubs to achieve the impossible. But when did the numbers become so important and what do they mean? In Outside the Box, Duncan Alexander looks back at twenty-five years of the Premier League and beyond, uncovering the hidden truths and accepted myths that surround the game. Using the archives of OptaJoe and never-before-seen data, we discover why Liverpool have gone 27 years without winning a league title and why Lionel Messi is the best player in the game’s history. Or is he? Insightful, wry, and hugely entertaining, Outside the Box is an enlightening and accessible account of football across the decades, analysing data from the some of the greatest seasons, players, teams and managers.

The Life and Legacy of Writer Mona Gould, the Grandmother I Thought I Knew

Years later, Maria took on the daunting task of sorting through Mona's mountain of papers to create an archive for the University of Toronto's Fisher Rare Book Library. The chaotic state of the boxes reflected Mona's flamboyant and demanding personality, yet they also drew an important picture of the life of a Canadian freelancer in the twentieth century. Mona had begun publishing poetry and features in newspapers in the 1920s and published three books of poetry in the 1940s. In the 1950s, at a time when many women were retreating from the public sphere, she had a successful radio career. Her later journals and letters recount, in agonizing detail, a downward spiral into self-doubt, poverty, and addiction. Maria soon discovered that the truth of Mona’s life was even more fascinating than her stories. Outside the Box brings to life a thinly documented era in Canadian letters through the story of one passionate and conflicted woman. It also charts the journey of an unwilling archivist, coming to terms with family secrets, forgotten history, and the stories that are never told.

E. D. Arrington returns with: Forever Was A Day, the sequel to her spellbinding novel, Stay The Course. In this continuing saga, Lori faces possibly the toughest challenges of her short life's journey. Mere hours after attending her grandmother's ("Ma") funeral, Lori is sent away from the only home she knows, away from the only people she loves, to live in Alexandria, Virginia, with a relative she has just met. A relative who comes from the white-looking side of the family. A relative who has neglected to tell her husband one minor detail...that Lori looks like...a Negro. What Readers Said About Stay The Course: Stay The Course is a magnificent book. It's the kind of book that should be in every school in this country. Our children need to know what it was truly like in the '60s and '70s, and Stay The Course does just that. Our children need to know their history, and Stay The Course is full of facts.-Isolene Taylor, (Retired Teacher) Snow Hill, N.C. I enjoyed Stay The Course very much, chuckling at times and crying, too. The author tells a story of love, devotion, hope, despair, faith, and triumph. I am anxiously awaiting the sequel.-Beverley Brown, Falls Church, VA. I am a reading enrichment teacher. My students enjoyed Stay The Course. They learned so much about segregation.-Uzal Daniels, Los Angeles, CA I am overwhelmed at the impact Stay The Course had on me. The author really captured the "Old South" style.-Kris Chinn, Washington, D.C. As an assistant principal, I would recommend Stay The Course to be included as required reading for all children. It teaches so much about how to overcome life's challenges in a positive way-Tonya Johnson, Wilson, N.C.
