Wisdom  Cosmos  and Cultus in the Book of Sirach

Despite the attention that has already been paid to the theme of creation in the book of Sirach, scholarship has yet to provide a comprehensive analysis of Ben Sira's instruction regarding the cosmic order and its role in the divine bestowal of wisdom upon human beings. This book, which consists of two parts, fills a lacuna in scholarship by offering such an analysis. The first part of this study examines Ben Sira's three main treatments of the created world, thus providing a comprehensive description and synthesis of Ben Sira's doctrine concerning the created order of the cosmos. The second part of this work analyzes the place of human beings in general, and the Jewish people in particular, within the cosmic order. This second part includes an analysis of the role of the created order in Ben Sira's wisdom instruction in 1:1-10 and 24:1-34 as well as an elucidation of the way in which his treatments of various kinds of people—civic leaders, wives, doctors, manual laborers, scribes, and cultic personnel—are integral to Ben Sira's doctrine of creation. This study demonstrates that the created order is a fundamental category that Ben Sira relies upon in articulating his instructions about wisdom and wise behavior.

Murder on the Bluffs

In the second Lauren Rousseau Mystery by Agatha Award-winning author Edith Maxwell, a grisly murder stirs up long-buried secrets surrounding the disappearance and death of Lauren’s father . . . As a bitter controversy rages over a secretive local land trust in her small New England town, linguistics professor Lauren Rousseau is not wholly surprised when she stumbles upon the dead body of one of the trust’s key members, his throat neatly slit from ear to ear. The only question is which of the many potential suspects is capable of so violent an act. But then the bluffs where she discovered the victim yield a shocking clue, one that may lead to the killer—and may be tied to her own father’s mysterious disappearance more than a decade before. As Lauren begins looking for answers to both mysteries among her fellow townspeople and even members of her own family, long-hidden secrets begin to emerge about the victim’s volatile sister, corruption at the heart of the land trust, and even about her father’s life. And as surprising revelations begin to mount, along with threats to her own life, Lauren knows she must pursue the cases to the very end—no matter how disturbing the solutions may be . . . This book was originally published as Bluffing Is Murder under the name Tace Baker. Praise for Murder on the Bluffs: “[Maxwell] has a genuine knack for spinning a deftly crafted mystery that will keep the reader’s total attention from beginning to end.” —Julie Simmons, Midwest Book Review “In this page-turner of a mystery, linguistics professor Lauren Rousseau uses her smarts, her Quaker faith, and her summer vacation to bring a vicious murderer—and a secret from her own past—into the light.” —Barbara Ross, Agatha-nominated author of the Maine Clambake Mysteries “Starts with a bang and doesn’t let up!” —Philip Gulley, author of the Harmony and Hope series “This is a smooth read with a lovely setting, appealing characters, lots of satisfying plot tangles, and a deep secret from Lauren’s past to keep you turning these pages.” — Agatha Award-nominated author Kaye George

The Moon in the River the Bud Path to the Empty Mind

In The Moon in the River: The Bud Path to Empty Mind, Dr. Antonio Terrone has found a way to write about bud, the “Way of War,” avoiding the trap of over intellectualization. The poems in this collection are meant to guide a practitioner along the life-long path of bud, training to unify mind and body, thought and action. The writing style is straightforward and sincere; natural and without artifice; all admirable qualities in a practitioner of both bud and Zen. This is a collection that should be savored slowly, poem by poem, again and again over a long time.
