This book was released on 2021-08-12 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Because My Soul Longs for You seeks to answer one of the most enduring human questions: Where can we find God in our lives? While Jewish theologians have long pondered the "God question" from ethical and philosophical perspectives, the last century has made space for a more experiential theology: God is present in our lived experiences. Radical amazement, to use Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel's phrase, can be found in everyday life. Contributors to this volume share how they welcome God's presence into their lives, as well as the theological language they use to think and speak about this presence. Chapters explore how we experience God through prayer, text study, poetry, food, music, service, movement, meditation, interpersonal connection, and much more.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Cultural History of Color in the Renaissance covers the period 1400 to 1650, a time of change, conflict, and transformation. Innovations in color production transformed the material world of the Renaissance, especially in ceramics, cloth, and paint. Collectors across Europe prized colorful objects such as feathers and gemstones as material illustrations of foreign lands. The advances in technology and the increasing global circulation of colors led to new color terms enriching language. Color shapes an individual's experience of the world and also how society gives particular spaces, objects, and moments meaning. The 6 volume set of the Cultural History of Color examines how color has been created, traded, used, and interpreted over the last 5000 years. The themes covered in each volume are color philosophy and science; color technology and trade; power and identity; religion and ritual; body and clothing; language and psychology; literature and the performing arts; art; architecture and interiors; and artefacts.

Book excerpt: This special collection assembles some of the most pre-eminent scholars in the field in African, African American, and American Studies to explore the ways writers reclaim the Black female body in African American literature using the theoretical, social, cultural, and religious frameworks of spirituality and religion. Central to these discussions is Black women’s agency within these realms—their uncanny ability to invent and reinvent themselves within individual and communal spaces that frame them as both outsider and insider, unworthy and worthy, deviant and sacred, excess and minimal. Scholars have sought to discuss these tensions, acknowledged and affirmed in prose, poetry, music, essays, speeches, written plays, or short stories. Forgiveness, healing, redemption, and reclamation provide entry into these vibrant explorations of self-discovery, passion, and self-creation that interrogate traditional views of what is spiritual and what is religious. Discussed writers include Toni Morrison, Phillis Wheatley, James Baldwin, Tina McElroy Ansa, Toni Cade Bambara, and Thomas Dorsey.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Preachers at funerals differ in approach. Some see the purpose of the sermon to be eulogy, to heap so much praise that the deceased becomes unrecognizable to the mourners. Others regard praise of the departed as inappropriate, as it may detract from the praise of Almighty God, which they believe to be the sole purpose of all worship. Still others opt to say nothing at all, arguing that it is disingenuous for one person to be lying in the pulpit while another is lying in the nave. In this book of funeral sermons preached throughout his forty-year ministry, Harold Lewis offers Jesus’ message of the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection—hope for the dead, hope for the church, and hope for the world in which we live, move, and have our being.

Book excerpt: Color plays an important role in our lives from birth. Knowledge of the meaning of colors can help everyone become a master artist in the art of living. Although we constantly use color to both express and accent our lives, the nature and meaning of color remains one of the world’s greatest mysteries. As science advances man’s knowledge, the basic truths of ancient wisdom are continually confirmed. These truths have been handed down to mankind through the mystery teachings of the Egyptians, Pythagorean thought of the Greeks, the Jewish energy system of the Qabalah, and Christianity’s Bible. Color Your World is an exploration into the language, magic, and application of color. Through a unique system of color-number analysis, we can seek a better understanding of color preferences, and learn how color affects our temperament. We learn how to pick personal colors to relax, revitalize and complement personal makeup. Color Your World illustrates the secrets of meditations on the colors, a system that has been used for centuries to attune oneself to the energies of the universe.

This book was released on 2022-08-31 with total page 264 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Cultural History of Color in the Age of Enlightenment covers the period 1650 to 1800. From the Baroque to the Neo-classical, color transformed art, architecture, ceramics, jewelry, and glass. Newton, using a prism, demonstrated the seven separate hues, which encouraged the development of color wheels and tables, and the increased standardization of color names. Technological advances in color printing resulted in superb maps and anatomical and botanical images. Identity and wealth were signalled with color, in uniforms, flags, and fashion. And the growth of empires, trade, and slavery encouraged new ideas about color. Color shapes an individual's experience of the world and also how society gives particular spaces, objects, and moments meaning. The 6 volume set of the Cultural History of Color examines how color has been created, traded, used, and interpreted over the last 5000 years.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “Do many young boys meet hermits in the forest, and trade mushrooms for wisdom?” Set amid the primeval forests of Eastern Poland, the avant-garde enclaves of Greenwich Village, and the long summer days of the San Juan Islands, Wild Mushrooms is the story of one man’s life, an artist called Eliasz, Ilyusha, and Elias at different points in his timeline. The narrative meanders fluidly between visions of the past—a small boy’s first memories of encountering the faith of his Russian grandmother—the obsessions and malignant thoughts which threaten to destroy a young man’s life, and the moment of personal theophany that brings an old man hope amid sorrow. Beauty, evil, worship, and hatred—monsters, dragons, and hermits in the woods—Wild Mushrooms is a journey of the mind and the soul, of decisive moments, and the insanity of true wisdom.

Download or read book What Color Is the Sacred? written by Michael Taussig and published by University of Chicago Press. This book was released on 2010-07-01 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Over the past thirty years, visionary anthropologist Michael Taussig has crafted a highly distinctive body of work. Playful, enthralling, and whip-smart, his writing makes ingenious connections between ideas, thinkers, and things. An extended meditation on the mysteries of color and the fascination they provoke, What Color Is the Sacred? is the next step on Taussig’s remarkable intellectual path. Following his interest in magic and surrealism, his earlier work on mimesis, and his recent discussion of heat, gold, and cocaine in My Cocaine Museum,this book uses color to explore further dimensions of what Taussig calls “the bodily unconscious” in an age of global warming. Drawing on classic ethnography as well as the work of Benjamin, Burroughs, and Proust, he takes up the notion that color invites the viewer into images and into the world. Yet, as Taussig makes clear, color has a history—a manifestly colonial history rooted in the West’s discomfort with color, especially bright color, and its associations with the so-called primitive. He begins by noting Goethe’s belief that Europeans are physically averse to vivid color while the uncivilized revel in it, which prompts Taussig to reconsider colonialism as a tension between chromophobes and chromophiliacs. And he ends with the strange story of coal, which, he argues, displaced colonial color by giving birth to synthetic colors, organic chemistry, and IG Farben, the giant chemical corporation behind the Third Reich. Nietzsche once wrote, “So far, all that has given colour to existence still lacks a history.” With What Color Is the Sacred? Taussig has taken up that challenge with all the radiant intelligence and inspiration we’ve come to expect from him.
