BOOK EXCERPT:

Relax and Unwind While Being Inspired and Amazed by Grace! We were all born to create, and it's hard to imagine childhood without paper and crayons. But that drive to add your own touch of beauty to the world doesn't need to stop now that you're grown. Images of Grace is a beautiful and playful masterpiece, blending hand-drawn, intricate illustrations with the rich words of Scripture. Each page is a source of inspiration, a gentle tonic for the busyness and complexity of our hectic lives. Incorporated into each design is a delicate hand-lettered Bible verse that focuses on God's grace, giving you the opportunity to meditate on his love and care for you as you color. Let this book inspire you creatively while it reconnects you with the God who created you and knows your every need. Grab your colored pencils, crayons, or markers and set yourself free to create. And when you're done, inspire others by giving away your art or posting it to social media. But most important: relax, have fun, and remember God loves you more than you can even imagine.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Grace McCaffery hopes that the bustling streets of New York hold all the promise that the lush hills of Ireland did not. As her efforts to earn enough money to bring her mother to America fail, she wonders if her new Brownie camera could be the answer. But a casual stroll through a beautiful New York City park turns into a hostile run-in with local gangsters, who are convinced her camera holds the first and only photos of their elusive leader. A policeman with a personal commitment to help those less fortunate finds Grace attractive and longs to help her, but Grace believes such men cannot be trusted. Spread thin between her quest to rescue her mother, do well in a new nanny job, and avoid the gang intent on intimidating her, Grace must put her faith in unlikely sources to learn the true meaning of courage and forgiveness.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book presents, with commentary, a portion of the art collection of Jerry Evenrud. It is the largest known collection of images of the parable of the Prodigal Son and encompasses works from 1540 to 1948. The historical span of the collection affirms the continuing resonance of the parable. The media range from etchings, paintings, ceramics, sculpture, and fabric. The collection reveals the desire of the artists to delve into the meaning of the parable and to convey that meaning to others. Some artists depict the entire narrative in a series of works, usually four to six segments. Others focus on one aspect, such as the pig pen or the return of the prodigal. The segment most frequently portrayed by a single print is the homecoming embrace by the fatherthe scene that represents the focus of the parable and thus of faithgrace and forgiveness.

BOOK EXCERPT:

For many centuries, Hindus have taken it for granted that the religious images they place in temples and home shrines for purposes of worship are alive. Hindu priests bring them to life through a complex ritual "establishment" that invokes the god or goddess into material support. Priests and devotees then maintain the enlivened image as a divine person through ongoing liturgical activity: they must awaken it in the morning, bathe it, dress it, feed it, entertain it, praise it, and eventually put it to bed at night. In this linked series of case studies of Hindu religious objects, Richard Davis argues that in some sense these believers are correct: through ongoing interactions with humans, religious objects are brought to life. Davis draws largely on reader-response literary theory and anthropological approaches to the study of objects in society in order to trace the biographies of Indian religious images over many centuries. He shows that Hindu priests and worshipers are not the only ones to enliven images. Bringing with them differing religious assumptions, political agendas, and economic motivations, others may animate the very same objects as icons of sovereignty, as polytheistic "idols," as "devils," as potentially lucrative commodities, as objects of sculptural art, or as symbols for a whole range of new meanings never foreseen by the images' makers or original worshipers.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Over one hundred original photographs from the monastery are featured in Portraits of Grace; each captivating image is accompanied by brief snippets of inspirational words to spark reflection and inner thought. Behrens uses many examples from modern life, including the complications of travel, people's burgeoning interest in self-help books, time, love, stories from the news and his own varied and unique personal experiences to weave brief reflections and essays into something that, over time, develops its own quiet insistence. He urges us to find the startling in the mundane, silence and meditation in the noise, and mercy in our anger. In short, he urges us to find the peaceful, loving God in our otherwise hectic, busy, and oftentimes all too self-involved lives.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Three women. One stranger in a shimmering silver dress. Whatever binds them together has already destroyed one life. It just might consume them all. When the past chases you, sometimes you just keep running. That's how Livvi Gray survives. She promised herself years ago that she'd forget those awful times, that she'd turn her someday dreams into reality. And she has. But sometimes we have to fight harder than ever to choose our own path. Micah and AnnaLee are fighting just like Livvi, trying to overcome their own struggles. But the three of them are connected in ways they could never have expected, and the mystery holding them close will transfix you as it barrels toward earth-shattering truth. Praise for The Book of Someday: "With a tone reminiscent of Jodi Picoult, Kristin Hannah, and Carol Cassella, Dixon pulls at the threads between regret and nostalgia, forgiveness and blame, denial and acceptance. Emotional without being overwrought, The Book of Someday is an enchanting story."—Booklist "[A] haunting tale ...that will put a pang in your heart—and, sometimes, a chill in your bones... A compelling tale of three extraordinary women facing insurmountable odds."—Shelf Awareness, Starred Review

BOOK EXCERPT:

This first-ever biography of American painter Grace Hartigan traces her rise from virtually self-taught painter to art-world fame, her plunge into obscurity after leaving New York to marry a scientist in Baltimore, and her constant efforts to reinvent her style and subject matter. Along the way, there were multiple affairs, four troubled marriages, a long battle with alcoholism, and a chilly relationship with her only child. Attempting to channel her vague ambitions after an early marriage, Grace struggled to master the basics of drawing in night-school classes. She moved to New York in her early twenties and befriended Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, and other artists who were pioneering Abstract Expressionism. Although praised for the coloristic brio of her abstract paintings, she began working figuratively, a move that was much criticized but ultimately vindicated when the Museum of Modern Art purchased her painting The Persian Jacket in 1953. By the mid-fifties, she freely combined abstract and representational elements. Grace-who signed her paintings "Hartigan"- was a full-fledged member of the "men's club" that was the 1950s art scene. Featured in Time, Newsweek, Life, and Look, she was the only woman in MoMA's groundbreaking 12 Americans exhibition in 1956, and the youngest artist-and again, only woman-in The New American Painting, which toured Europe in 1958-1959. Two years later she moved to Baltimore, where she became legendary for her signature tough-love counsel to her art school students. Grace continued to paint throughout her life, seeking-for better or worse-something truer and fiercer than beauty.
