How to Live on Twenty-Four Hours a Day

Since the invention of the clock, humans have become keenly aware of time-both how much they have and how quickly it slips away. In this classic book on time management, Bennett instructs his readers on how to live life to the fullest, given that there are twenty-four hours in a day and always so much to accomplish. Managing time, not money, is the true route to happiness. You can get more money. But time is parceled out at the same rate for everyone, no matter their class or income. Time, the rarest commodity, cannot be made to last, but it can be lived. And by living it properly, anyone can improve their level of satisfaction and happiness. British writer ARNOLD BENNETT (1867-1931) wrote both fiction and nonfiction, but he is best known for the novels Anna of the Five Towns (1902), Buried Alive (1908), and Clayhanger (1910).

The Cat From Hue

A Vietnam War Story

John Laurence covered the Vietnam war for CBS News from 1965 to 1970 and was judged by his colleagues to be the best television reporter of the war. His documentary about a squad of U.S. troops, "The World of Charlie Company," received every major award for broadcast journalism. Despite the professional acclaim, however, the traumatic stories Laurence covered became a personal burden that he carried long after the war was over. In this evocative, unflinching memoir, laced with humor, anger, love, and the unforgettable story of Méo, the Vietnamese cat, Laurence recalls coming of age during the war years as a journalist and as a man. Along the way, he clarifies the murky history of the war and the role that journalists played in altering its course. The Cat from Hué has earned passionate acclaim from many of the most renowned journalists and writers about the war, as well as from military officers and war veterans, book reviewers, and readers. Now available in trade paperback with a new epilogue, this book will stand with Michael Herr's Dispatches, Philip Caputo's A Rumor of War, and Neil Sheehan's A Bright, Shining Lie as one of the best books ever written about Vietnam-and about war generally.

Some years ago, I noticed that certain verses and even brief phrases seemed to stand out from Bible passages I read during my daily devotions. I found myself thinking about, meditating on, ruminating the words throughout the day. It amused me to picture myself chewing my cud. I shouldnt have been surprised. The Bible does say we are his people, the sheep of his pasture (Psalm 100:3 b, NIV), and sheep chew a cud. Other pictures came to mind: a baseball player as he chewed a wad of bubble gum; an old codger with a chaw of tobacco tucked into one cheek. The more delicate expression would be in reference to Mary, the mother of Jesus. Of her the Scriptures record: But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart (Luke 2:19, NIV). The meaning is the same. You thrill to Gods Word, you chew on Scripture day and night (Psalm 1:23, The Message). So was born my daily wad. I wrote the phrases on cards, thought about the words throughout the day, and shared them with others as opportunity presented itself. I was blessed, others were blessed. My prayer is that you will be blessed as you read, ruminate, and are refreshed by The Daily Wad.

From Judgment to Passion

Devotion to Christ and the Virgin Mary, 800–1200

Devotion to the crucified Christ is one of the most familiar, yet most disconcerting artifacts of medieval European civilization. How and why did the images of the dying God-man and his grieving mother achieve such prominence, inspiring unparalleled religious creativity as well such imitative extremes as celibacy and self-flagellation? To answer this question, Rachel Fulton ranges over developments in liturgical performance, private prayer, doctrine, and art. She considers the fear occasioned by the disappointed hopes of medieval Christians convinced that the apocalypse would come soon, the revulsion of medieval Jews at being baptized in the name of God born from a woman, the reform of the Church in light of a new European money economy, the eroticism of the Marian exegesis of the Song of Songs, and much more. Devotion to the crucified Christ is one of the most familiar yet disconcerting artifacts of medieval European civilization. How and why did the images of the dying God-man and his grieving mother achieve such prominence, inspiring unparalleled religious creativity and emotional artistry even as they fostered such imitative extremes as celibacy, crusade, and self-flagellation? Magisterial in style and comprehensive in scope, From Judgment to Passion is the first systematic attempt to explain the origins and initial development of European devotion to Christ in his suffering humanity and Mary in her compassionate grief. Rachel Fulton examines liturgical performance, doctrine, private prayer, scriptural exegesis, and art in order to illuminate and explain the powerful desire shared by medieval women and men to identify with the crucified Christ and his mother. The book begins with the Carolingian campaign to convert the newly conquered pagan Saxons, in particular with the effort to explain for these new converts the mystery of the Eucharist, the miraculous presence of Christ's body at the Mass. Moving on to the early eleventh century, when Christ's failure to return on the millennium of his Passion (A.D. 1033) necessitated for believers a radical revision of Christian history, Fulton examines the novel liturgies and devotions that arose amid this apocalyptic disappointment. The book turns finally to the twelfth century when, in the wake of the capture of Jerusalem in the First Crusade, there occurred the full flowering of a new, more emotional sensibility of faith, epitomized by the eroticism of the Marian exegesis of the Song of Songs and by the artistic and architectural innovations we have come to think of as quintessentially high medieval. In addition to its concern with explaining devotional change, From Judgment to Passion presses a second, crucial question: How is it possible for modern historians to understand not only the social and cultural functions but also the experience of faith—the impulsive engagement with the emotions, sometimes ineffable, of prayer and devotion? The answer, magnificently exemplified throughout this book's narrative, lies in imaginative empathy, the same incorporation of self into story that lay at the heart of the medieval effort to identify with Christ and Mary in their love and pain.
