The most popular source of theological hope for American Christians is that of Jurgen Moltmann. Preachers, teachers, and lay people reflect Moltmann's influence, with their hope in a this-worldly eschatology and a suffering God. However, an exclusive reliance on that hope deprives the church of crucial resources in the face of global economic, environmental, and military crises. This book explores Moltmannian hope and considers its costs before looking elsewhere for additional contributions, from Thomas Aquinas's theological virtue of hope to nihilism and beyond, in order to encourage the church to sustain and practice hope in Jesus Christ, our only hope.

What if God fell in love and the person was already married? A bitter story of the very first love triangle between a man, his wife, and their God First came Adam, whose fall soured His quest for absolute authority, then Noah, whose dreary sense of duty He found dull. God resolves for a third and final time to get it right, to select a vessel through whom He can direct human affairs, and to whom He can communicate directly His will. He chooses a solitary figure whose trust must be wooed, but whose faith, once secured, will surely reflect even greater glory and love. Were matters only that simple. In Only Human, Jenny Diski's brilliant and affecting retelling of the Abraham and Sarah story, God learns that no man, chosen or not, is solitary, and that the bonds forged by the human heart are resilient even to divine commandment. Diski transforms an archetypal tale of Old Testament obedience into a fierce love triangle, a test of wills over not only mankind's future, but over who will tell the story of its past.

The poems in Nancy Dembowski's second collection are a series of tender, yet slightly morbid epistles written for the purpose of saying good-bye to a relationship, lifestyle or country. Underscored by a tone of resignation, the poems come alive in flashes of angry revenge OCo bordering on the absurd OCo together with tenderness and joy. Dembowski's poems, while written in a traditional Canadian story-telling manner, scratch the surface of the underbelly of America's dysfunction. This is the voice of an immigrant lost and alone somewhere between an urban trailer park in the deep south and a Tory election office in Ontario."

As much Charlene shows her beauty with the elegance of dress and fame, Sadhana shows her beauty with simplicity and self-pride. Indeed, both deserve to have captured one common heart – that of Bali’s – but sadly, only one is to keep it. In love, to sacrifice for peace and humility, is a true love in itself – a captivating story, internationally set, brings the climax of joy, anguish, sentiment, and sacrifice in this true love scenario of the three people. An interesting read and immensely enjoyable.

News flash: Your body already knows how to detox; you just need to turn on the right cues to make it happen. Here's how, with a 14-day plan that will change your life forever. Time to detox and cleanse? Don't go with a fad diet that makes promises you can't keep (all juice, all the time—sound familiar?). Instead, turn to Samantha Heller for a program that really works. Cleanses, detoxes, and other purifying practices have been around for hundreds of years, from fasting to juicing and everything in between. Not all of them are tried-and-true, and most aren't scientifically sound. But finally, here it is: the only cleanse you'll ever need. The Only Cleanse is uniquely designed to fully integrate, elevate, and reestablish the body's biochemical balance. Heller uses a five-pronged approach that covers diet, stress, emotions, exercise, and sleep. She also reviews existing detox plans and explains the pros and cons, further emphasizing why her plan is the only one you need.

For over forty years, John Garvey was the “ballast” of Commonweal magazine. His award-winning essays and consistently notable columns revealed not only his acuity and alacrity, but his uncommon spiritual insight. These in turn provided momentum and substance for whatever followed in an issue of the magazine because Garvey never hesitated to wrestle with some of the most challenging and intractable topics of the day, and did so with a rich pastoral sensitivity, and a refreshing and rare intelligence. Only Wonder Comprehends gleans from John Garvey’s many contributions to Commonweal that reflect his spiritual depth and deep appreciation of history, politics, theology, and culture. Steeped in the Christian tradition, Garvey loved to write and, in return, his readers relished what he wrote. It is hoped that this collection of his writings from Commonweal will inspire readers to cultivate a similar sense of attentiveness and commitment, for as the author himself observed, “Religious traditions are meant to transform us, not to affirm us as we are.”
