Most holiday romances have no conclusion good or bad. Just a few lead to fairy-tale weddings and ‘happy ever after.’ Ian Lomax went to Corfu and fell in love with a Greek girl called Helen. They married in England and had a lovely little boy called Christopher. Blissfully unaware that his mother-inlaw had plotted with his wife to abduct his son while on a trip to Greece, Ian found himself alone and broken-hearted in a strange country. This book tells the true story of Ian’s struggle through the Greek courts to recover his father’s rights to be part of the life of his son.

At a time when every cultural value has been questioned, when there seem to be no limits to what can be described as 'art', and when doubt has been cast upon truth itself, this book argues for the fact of certain fundamental principles within the field of Art and seeks to establish their nature. Referring to many examples, 'Art, Love and Truth' is both a study in discrimination, serving to distinguish artworks which enhance our awareness from those which impoverish it, and a meditation on the power of artists to express compassion. Passionate and radical, scholarly and entertaining, it will appeal to everyone interested in art, culture and spirituality.

In a study that will be of interest to all those concerned with the politics of gender, the history of sexuality, and the erotics of reading, Christopher Craft investigates questions fundamental to any history of present sexualities. How does the modern binary homosexual/heterosexual relate to earlier formulations like "sexual inversion" and "sodomy"? What part does literature play in the development of such categories, or in a culture's resistance to them? And what are the implications for the creation and maintenance of the presumed "natural" male heterosexual subject? How has male heterosexual subjectivity been established as a bulwark against the attractions of a homosexual desire that is repeatedly incited by the very culture that condemns it? Craft examines the discourses of nineteenth-century psychiatry and sexology; some of Freud's central writings; and Tennyson's In Memoriam, Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, Stoker's Dracula, and Lawrence's Women In Love.

The Love That Satisfies

The Love That Satisfies

You doubt? This book will make you a believer.

Author: Christopher West

Publisher: Ascension Press

ISBN:

Category: Religion

Page: 167

View: 230

The celebrated author of Theology of the Body Explained andTheology of the Body for Beginners offers compelling insights into Pope Benedict’s profound teaching on human and divine love. The Love That Satisfies is for all - whether married, single, or religious - who are seeking the face of true love in a wounded world. In The Love That Satisfies, Christopher West turns to the wisdom of both Popes Benedict XVI and John Paul II in order to shed some light on sexual love (eros) and its relationship with divine love (agape). Why is the love between man and woman so attractive and elusive, demanding and rewarding, restrictive and liberating, painful and ecstatic, messy and beautiful, maddening and fulfilling? Our world is saturated with sex but remains starved for love. Why? Perhaps as Waylon Jennings put it, we’re “Lookin' for love in all the wrong places, lookin' for love in too many faces.” Where, then, is the right place and whose, then, is the right face in which to look for love? By reflecting on key passages from Pope Benedict’s grand encyclical Deus Caritas Est, this book explores these and many other questions with the goal of pointing all who read it towards the love that satisfies. Those who give Pope Benedict’s teaching the attention it deserves will discover that the Catholic Church has a vision of sexual love far more glorious than anything Sigmund Freud, Hugh Hefner, Britney Spears, or Howard Stern could dream of or imagine. You doubt? This book will make you a believer.

Love of neighbor, love of country, love of God, love of life, and love of wisdom—each is clarified and invigorated in Phillips’s Socratic dialogues with people from all walks of life and from all over the world.

"Autological Love follows marginally competent writer Henry Craft as he visits the small college town of Lohnbury hoping to learn more about three popular artists hailing from Latham College and the surrounding community: a reclusive author who consistently returns to the best-seller lists in spite of critical objections, a young guitar phenom fronting the popular rock band Grim Altar, and a pseudonymous painter whose works are bringing a small fortune to a local gallery. ...Gradually Craft overcomes his complete lack of skills as an investigative journalist and learns that all three stories lead back like spokes on a wheel to the same point: a young man who died almost two decades earlier." -- Sal Bott on Amazon.com
