292463: The Dude Abides The Dude Abides
By Cathleen Falsani
*** 49c ***

 
 

Whether you’ve seen all 14 of their movies or only a few, you know that Joel and Ethan Cohen are some of the best filmmakers in the industry. Cathleen Falsani explores the deeper truths in each of the Coen brothers’ films in The Dude Abides, and shows that there is truly no facet of human behavior the Coen brothers are afraid to tackle. Ranging from iconoclastic comedies such as Raising Arizona and The Big Lebowski to the unblinking treatise on the nature of evil in No Country for Old Men, the Coen brothers have created moral universes in which some of life’s most essential questions are asked-if not always answered. Ultimately, Falsani brings the reader into a new admiration for these bizarre, always clever, and unmistakably though-provoking filmmakers and the social commentary the bring to big screen.

The personal portrait, by reporter Rupert Shortt, tells the life story of this complex, and at times, misunderstood man. Timely, and insightful, this book will shed light on the struggles surrounding Anglicanism, and one of its most controversial figures.

014800: The Age of the Spirit: How the Ghost of an Ancient Controversy Is Shaping the Church The Age of the Spirit:
How the Ghost of an Ancient Controversy Is Shaping the Church

By Phyllis Tickle with Jon M. Sweeney
*** 99c ***

 
 

A thousand years ago, the church experienced a time of tremendous upheaval called the Great Schism. The one faith became two churches, East and West, and the course of world history was forever changed. And it all swirled around one Latin word in the Nicene Creed, filioque, that indicated the Holy Spirit proceeded both from God the Father “and from the Son.” From the time that phrase was officially instituted onward, the Holy Spirit’s place in the Trinity and role in the lives of believers would be fiercely debated, with ramifications being felt through the centuries to this very day.

In this fascinating book, readers will encounter not just the interesting historical realities that have shaped our faith today but also the present resurgence of interest in the Holy Spirit seen in many churches across the theological spectrum. Christianity is growing by leaps and bounds in places where it has never made deep inroads before. Pentecostalism, with its emphasis on the Spirit and spontaneity, is the predominant force. Tickle and Sweeney make accessible and relevant the forces behind the current upheaval in the church, taking readers by the hand and leading them confidently into the Age of the Spirit.

528224: All God"s Children & Blue Suede Shoes: 
Christians and Popular Culture All God’s Children & Blue Suede Shoes:
Christians and Popular Culture

By Ken Myers
*** $1.49 ***

 
 

Every generation faces unique challenges. In All God’s Children and Blue Suede Shoes cultural expert Ken Myers helps us to engage pop culture from a historical and experiential perspective so that we can live in it with wisdom and discernment.

The first-century Church had Caesar’s lions and the Colosseum. And, while it might seem like an unlikely comparison, the challenge of living with popular culture may well be as serious as persecution was for the saints of old.

Today we witness the tremendous power of pop culture to set the pace and priorities of our lives. We simply cannot afford to be indifferent about culture’s influence-nor can we escape it, glibly condemn it, or Christianize it. Cultural expert Ken Myers helps us to engage pop culture from a historical and experiential perspective so that we can live in it with wisdom and discernment.

With the Grain of the Universe is a major work by one of the world’s top theologians and offers a provocative and closely argued perspective on natural theology.
