The Poet as Believer

Still, the poem does not end in such feeling, but in an appeal, first made by Claudel but then placed by him on the lips of St Genevieve, for France to realize that her God is awaiting her. After these horrible four years in the mud of ...

The Poet as Believer

This is the first comprehensive study of the theological significance of Paul Claudel, a poet frequently cited by literary-minded theologians in Europe and theologically-minded poets (such as von Balthasar, de Lubac and Eliot). His writing combines cosmology and history, Bible and metaphysics, liturgy and the drama of human personality. His work, which continues to arouse discussion in France, was acclaimed in his lifetime as the 'summa poetica' of a new Dante. Aidan Nichols' study demonstrates how Claudel's oeuvre, which is not only poetry but theatre and prose including biblical commentaries, constitutes a rich resource for constructive doctrine, liturgical preaching, and theological reflection. As the comparable example of Geoffrey Hill, Professor of Poetry at Oxford suggests, Aidan Nichols illuminates how Claudel's synthesis of many dimensions remains an important way of practising poetry in the Christian tradition today.

The Poet s Perspective

Faith of the Believer is a combination of creative poetry, philosophy, and wit that is founded on the believer's responsibility to seek to rise up to the standard. A standard which was founded by our Savior, which came with basic instructions, for each believer to go, teach, and make disciples. Poetry is the vehicle, philosophy is the wheels on which it rolls, and the Word is the fuel, which propels it. Somewhere within the bounds of Faith of the Believer is a "spirit check," a personal revival, an awakening of your original vow. A vow to a faith that you were not drafted into but one that you believe in your heart and confessed with your mouth and freely enlisted. So if you are outside of His will, then know that there might be something you yet need to do, or someone that only you can reach. So you might need to get off the sidelines and back in the game, a game that we can't afford to lose. For we are all here with purpose. And time is winding down for the children of man. I come to you in the volume of the book with purpose, as one crying in the wilderness, trying to open the eyes of the children of man, before they are harvested by minds of destruction. For God called preachers, God sent teachers, God sent prophets, and God sent poets. And I am "The Poet," and this is The Poet's perspective on the faith of the believer.

The Believer s Brain

About 90% of people have faith in a supreme being, but our yearning for the divine, and whatever it promises, involves a large divergence in mental states and behaviors. Some adhere to doctrine, supplication, and fastidious religious practices; others have a strong sense they are part of something greater and more universal. However, all religious and spiritual paths are mediated by complex brain networks. When different areas of the brain are stimulated, a person can have a variety of experiences, but there is no specific ‘God spot’ where stimulation enhances religiosity or spirituality. Functional brain imaging shows that there are specific areas of the brain that ‘light up’ when subjects perform certain religious activities, but imaging only provides anatomic correlations, not functional explanations. The Believer's Brain takes a step beyond these singular methodologies, providing converging evidence from a variety study methods of how humans’ brain networks mediate different aspects of religious and spiritual beliefs, feelings, actions, and experiences. Although the book reveals how our brain is the home to the religious and spiritual mind, understanding this gift will not diminish our spirituality or our love or our belief in a supreme being, but will increase appreciation of the apparatus that mediates these mental states.

Introducing George The Poet

Search Party: A Collection of Poems George the Poet. Believer She's a good actress, knows how to spin a web. You call her Sigourney Weaver. You don't know her body like you used to. And she doesn't make you horny, either.

Introducing George The Poet

‘The title is Search Party – the idea being that we’re all out here looking for something, and my poems are my way of finding myself.’ A young black poet blending spoken word and rap; an inner city upbringing with a Cambridge education; a social consciousness with a satirical wit and infectious rhythm – George The Poet is the voice of a new generation. Search Party is a thought-provoking and deeply autobiographical collection. From the overtly political ‘Go Home’ to the deeply personal ‘Full-time’; the narrative poems that offer vivid and unapologetic snapshots of inner-city life, such as ‘His Mistakes’, ‘Believer’ and the anthemic ‘My City’; to the provocative social commentary in ‘Lazy Dog’ and ‘YOLO’; to the inspiring, idea-driven pieces such as ‘The Power of Collaboration’ and ‘School Blues’, George takes poetry into new territories and to new audiences, offering a different way to talk about the things that matter, to explore his own experience and ideas, and encourage others explore theirs. George The Poet’s mesmerising and unforgettable live performances have earned him critical acclaim. From sell-out headline gigs and YouTube hits, to recording his own music, and now his first collection of poetry, George uses his work to speak truth to power and challenge our preconceived ideas about the society we’re living in. Whether you’re searching for yourself, for answers, for change – join the search party.

Proverbs from the Poet Preacher

Just as the biblical book of Proverbs reveals the wisdom of an ancient king of Israel who dedicated himself to Jehovah in his youth, so too this book presents the wit and wisdom of a modern school teacher and church leader who committed himself to Christ at the age of seven. Compiled, arranged, and edited by Ralph Vile's eldest son, John, this book contains some 2,500 of Ralph's aphorisms from a fifty-year period, arranged under more than 200 topics covering the range of practical and spiritual living. A unique mix of universal truths and deeply held personal opinions from a man with a good sense of humor who loves both rhymes and paradoxical word plays, this book will amuse, challenge, and inspire general readers as it provides insights, illustrations, and reflections for pastors and speakers. RALPH VILE has spent most of his life in Luray, Virginia in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Born in Colonial Beach, Virginia and committing his life to God at the age of seven, Ralph served in the U.S. Navy and attended college where he met his wife Joanna. After brief service on the mission field in Costa Rica, the couple returned with their growing family to Virginia. There they began teaching in public schools as they raised five children and two grandchildren; furthered their educations; and served God through music, teaching, and in other leadership capacities at the Mt. Carmel Regular Baptist Church. Ralph has been writing poems, some of which have been collected in Xulon's We Are His Poets (the first volume of Valley Verses) and Let the Bells Ring Out on Christmas Morning, and proverbs for more than fifty years.

Essays Catholic and Critical

This book presents the most significant work of the highly esteemed contemporary theologian George Schner, who died in 2000. Gathering together his writing in the areas of theology and the philosophy of religion, it offers a distinct contribution to our understanding of the prospects and perils of undertaking theology in the Christian tradition at the present juncture. Engaging key texts in philosophy of religion from the modern period, recent official Roman Catholic teaching related to the basis and doing of theology, and the work of key representatives of the so-called 'Yale School' of post-liberal theology, the essays collected here represent acute and historically informed judgment upon the problematique of the practice of contemporary theology. Drawing together a substantial body of work of recognized intellectual scope, philosophical rigour and theological richness, this volume provides invaluable insight into key questions regarding theological method, the importance of modern philosophy of religion, the nature of theological discourse and contemporary Catholic theological reflection.
