David Wheeler - Contingency Plans: PoemsDavid Wheeler’s new book of poetry Contingency Plans, was reviewed in our most recent print edition.

Read this review by Thomas Turner (PDF).

Also, here is an appropriate poem from the book that we also ran in the print edition…

Lent

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, and
I am already empty.
Soot shrouds my brow, evenly.
a note left by a soul lent
to a warden who didn’t want it.

Call me brother. Console me
with a gentle grip on my shoulder,
or slap me on my back and knock
a small, fragile fragment
of faith or hope or love loose.

I’ve given up so many things.

We  have recently made a slight change to our format and the reviews, excerpts, poems, etc. of our Midweek update will be posted to “pages” on the ERB website, and announced via social media.  If you’re a “first-to-know” sort of person, you can get these updates when they first come out in one of two ways:

Midweek postings from this past week:


In our continuing effort to fund the publication and free distribution of The Englewood Review, we are going to be collaborating more intentionally with Christian Book Distributors. Primarily, we will be offering you the opportunity to buy bargain books from CBD that we think of are interest. Buying books this way is a win / win / win proposition. You get great books for a great price, CBD gets the sale and we get an excellent referral fee from CBD.

This week’s Bargains:

25800X: More Than Chains and Toil: A Christian Work Ethic of  Enslaved Women More Than Chains and Toil: A Christian Work Ethic of Enslaved WomenBy Joan M. Martin / Westminster John Knox Press

$2.99 – Save 90%!!!

Martin explores the experiences of enslaved women and the realities of their social world to uncover the inter-relationships, in the context of that environment , among moral agency, work, and human meaning. She then reflects ethically on the implications such a distinct perspective on labor might have for women in contemporary African-American communities and for broader discussions about the meaning of work in American society.

636317: Religion and Empire: People, Power, and the Life of the  Spirit Religion and Empire: People, Power, and the Life of the SpiritBy Richard A. Horsley / Augsburg Fortress

$1.29 – Save 87%!!!

How has the interaction between religion, rhetoric, and politics shaped people’s lives over the centuries? Examining the relationship between religious discourse and empire-building, Horsley describes how religion is constructed by the power elite; the role it plays in resistance movements among subjugated people; and how it is used to legitimize empire. 151 pages, softcover from Fortress.

431191: Anxious About Empire: Theological Essays on the New Global  Realities Anxious About Empire: Theological Essays on the New Global RealitiesBy Edited by Wes Avram / Baker

$1.99 – Save 90%!!!

In response to the 2002 foreign policy directive that changed America’s national security strategy, a denominationally diverse group (Mennonite, Catholic, Congregational, Catholic) of theologians, theorists, scholars, and pastors addresses the transnational nature of the church, loving neighbors in a globalized world, the use of Scripture in imperial rhetoric, and more. 218 pages, softcover from Brazos.

227694: The Gospel According to America: A Meditation on a  God-blessed, Christ-haunted Idea The Gospel According to America: A Meditation on a God-blessed, Christ-haunted IdeaBy David Dark / Westminster John Knox Press

$3.99 – Save 73%!!!

Under a broad pop-culture umbrella, using icons from music, literature, film, the media, and politics, David Dark hopes to provide fodder for lively conversation about what it means to be Christian and American in this “weird moment” in which we live. It is a moment when we are increasingly polarized along political and religious lines, a moment when we are too busy forming our response to listen to the one who is speaking. And yet we claim more than ever to be one nation, under God. What does this mean? The end result, he hopes, will be a better understanding that “there is a reality more important, more lasting, and more infinite than the cultures to which we belong,” the reality of the kingdom of God.”This well-read interpreter of popular culture probes the spiritual resonances of American culture from Hawthorne and Melville to Bob Dylan and David Lynch. Nearly every page has something to make readers pause, laugh, think, or pray,”—Publishers Weekly

745296: Red-Letter Christians: A Citizen"s Guide to  Faith & Politics Red-Letter Christians: A Citizen’s Guide to Faith & PoliticsBy Tony Campolo / Regal Books

$4.99 – Save 75%!!!

A new kind of politically concerned evangelical is emerging, somewhere between hard-right Republicans and far-left Democrats. “Red-Letter Christians” seek to live out Jesus’ words—the ones printed in red in many New Testaments. Examining the hot-button issues facing believers today, Campolo calls us to transcend partisan squabbles—and bring Christ’s radical message to our civic commitments. 224 pages, hardcover from Regal.
