BOOK EXCERPT:

In the second of Fenella's three books, happiness is short lived in marriage – eleven days to be exact, followed by a seven year nightmare before finally bailing ship. The first book: "Rejoice... I Will Fear No Evil (Psalm 23)" begins with physical abuse, but the marriage as told through the character of Jessica, was a relationship of emotional abuse, that led to planning suicide as the only escape. Having counselled and helped others, Jesse couldn't help herself! Of course, Jesse lives to tell the story, but has many sadness's and three major bereavements to deal with, not to mention the unleashing of a great anger and bitterness in her heart and the spoils they bring. Whilst succeeding in a career working with young people having been forced out of mission, her personal life becomes a non-stop quest for love, internet dating, and a total failure, hidden behind the mask of a clown. A finger of fate flicks the switch bringing sickness - ME, and the ensuing realities of limitations, causing Jesse to go in pursuit of yet another lifelong dream to improve her quality of life... requiring her to sell up, saying farewell to friends, seeking pastures new and fresh opportunities. Priding herself on being a survivor, Jesse brushes the hurts under the carpet and moves on 'til such a time when the hurts and disappointments become a mountain impossible to avoid and a volcano bursts beyond the mask, spewing the poisons within... and a realisation that something has to change. Returning to her waiting 'Perfect Valentine', He empowers and encourages Jesse to break free from the chains of self-pity, low self-worth, and the constant cloud of failure, to a place of victory - with the dreaded mountain as rubble at her feet! "When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me." I am touched by the almost childlike way Fenella Stevensen views life in her early years of "Rejoice... I Will Fear No Evil (Psalm 23)" struck by the sincerity in each word, and the emotion which at times jump out of the pages. Fenella has unearthed an incredible talent in that her life story, but most of all in spreading the word that no matter where you come from, what dark journeys life makes you take, hope prevails.

BOOK EXCERPT:

A sometimes hilarious three-generational clash, of values plays out in REJOICE, a novel about a conventional mother, an uncompromising hippie daughter, and a devil-may-care granddaughter raised in an idealistic commune. The mother finally details her struggle in a memoir which she pays her granddaughter to tout on a do-it-yourself book tour. The granddaughter is less interested in the book than she is in her gypsy hippie encounters with the pony-tailed know-it-all who is pursuing her. Soon her casual attitude toward life is put to the test when she falls in love with the dutiful son of a straight-laced Mexican widow. Do we hear wedding bells or fire sirens in the distance?

BOOK EXCERPT:

In Rejoice, Maria Athanasiou uses Byzantine iconography to illustrate the story and Scriptures. She combines many of Byzantine iconographic painting techniques through the medium of watercolors to portray the details of the birth of Christ. The book details the events before, during, and after Jesus' birth, describing the period he was to be born, the significant people around him, his glorified nativity story, and his church. Rejoice is grounded in the Holy Scriptures, both the text and the iconography are expressions based on the Bible. "Thank you for writing such a beautiful book about the story of Christmas. My children enjoy hearing it over and over. They truly have learned the story of Christ's birth." -Leoni DiAndrea

BOOK EXCERPT:

The election of Donald Trump as the forty-fifth president of the United States was a watershed moment in American history. In this book, Michael Coffey reflects on major social and religious issues leading up to and following the election. Coffey addresses the political issues of the day, not from a partisan position but from the question of what it means to be faithful as church now. Rather than pit left against right or Republican against Democrat, Pastor Coffey seeks to explore fundamental issues of Christian commitments centered in love of God and neighbor. Coffey shares his personal responses to the events surrounding the election while exploring central biblical and theological themes that have shaped and challenged the church in every age. This book confronts conservative and liberal Christian assumptions and creates space for dialogue about what it means to prioritize the Gospel message of compassion and mercy over partisan politics, nationalism, and ideology. Church leaders will find resources for leading conversation. Church members will find a rich and challenging resource for dialogue. Those outside of religious communities who are politically engaged will find insight for understanding how people of faith live out their commitments in the public realm.

BOOK EXCERPT:

In Spirits Rejoice! Jason Bivins explores the relationship between American religion and American music, and the places where religion and jazz have overlapped. Much writing about jazz tends toward glorified discographies or impressionistic descriptions of the actual sounds. Rather than providing a history, or series of biographical entries, Spirits Rejoice! takes to heart a central characteristic of jazz itself and improvises, generating a collection of themes, pursuits, reoccurring foci, and interpretations. Bivins riffs on interviews, liner notes, journals, audience reception, and critical commentary, producing a work that argues for the centrality of religious experiences to any legitimate understanding of jazz, while also suggesting that jazz opens up new interpretations of American religious history. Bivins examines themes such as musical creativity as related to specific religious traditions, jazz as a form of ritual and healing, and jazz cosmologies and metaphysics. Spirits Rejoice! connects Religious Studies to Jazz Studies through thematic portraits, and a vast number of interviews to propose a new, improvisationally fluid archive for thinking about religion, race, and sound in the United States. Bivins's conclusions explore how the sound of spirits rejoicing challenges not only prevailing understandings of race and music, but also the way we think about religion. Spirits Rejoice! is an essential volume for any student of jazz, American religion, or American culture.
