This volume on Qoheleth's vocabulary is the continuation of that on the grammar (OLA 41), published in 1992. All lexemes occurring in Qoh are examined for the specific connotations they have in this book. Chapter I deals with Biblical Hebrew words that are frequently and idiosyncratically used in Qoh. The subject of Chapter II are words that are less frequently used, yet can be considered to have some typical connotations in Qoh. Then follows in Chapter III the study of classical BH words that are less typical of Qoh, yet demand some attention. Chapter IV offers an analysis of the words that occur only in Qoh and in the last chapter, the reader finds short notes on the remaining words, those which require no special analysis. Throughout this monograph, attention is given to Late Biblical Hebrew, Aramaisms and Graecisms, in continuity with the grammatical studies in vol. I.

I Don't Hate the South

Reflections on Faulkner, Family, and the South

I Don't Hate The South takes its title from the famous declaration by Faulkner's character Quentin Compson in the novel Absalom, Absalom!. The book traces Baker's own ambivalent relationship to the South and its various protocols of family and black expressive cultural independence through a memoiristic recounting of the author's various academic posts, family dramas, travels, and engagements with that most famous of southern authors, William Faulkner as well as the black expressive "experimentalists" Percival Everett and Ralph Ellison. I Don't Hate The South's central claim is that the South is a laboratory, metaphor, and proving ground for American polity as a whole. W. E. B. Du Bois noted: "As the South goes, so goes the nation!" Houston Baker sets out to show the present-day wisdom of Du Bois's observation in a post-Hurricane Katrina moment of national family crisis. With incisive wit, scrupulous literary and cultural analysis, and vivid portraits of members of his own family, the author provides captivating reading and an object lesson on the United States' regional and national interdependence.

Jesus said in John 10:11, The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for his sheep. He came to give us freedom from fear, debt, sickness, poverty, homelessness, unemployment, and anything that may prevents us from walking in the light of Gods Word. Now, whether you are a Sunday Church folk, a new believer or a longtime Christian who wants to read the message of faith, I Must Tell Jesus,will prove to you that no one has ever spoke the way that Jesus did. The Story of Jesus must be shared with every person on the face of the earth in order that each individual may have the opportunity to come to believe and follow Jesus. Christ tells us, as He told His disciples, you will be my witnesses in Jerusalelm, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8). In order to fulfill Christs command, I Must Tell Jesus is written as a tribute to my family and the family of God. Thank You!
