Coming Home: …Lessons I didn’t get in Sunday School

by Jon Dufendach

Jesus Christ is one of the most controversial figures of all time. Like it or not, He is the voice of God. In the end every knee shall bow at the very name of Jesus. No one knows the hour of His return, but it’s closer than for any previous generation. We’re in the time of the 11th hour workers.

One such worker has recorded stories from his everyday life and in so doing has come to the realization the age of Grace is coming to its fullness. Soon there will be time no more. These are a few, very few, of the events emerging as the age closes, and God, who is not willing that any should perish, is sounding the final call: “Come Home.” He stands at the door and knocks.

Don’t bother with this book if you’re not interested in your eternal well-being. Bu...

The Days That Don't Disappear

by Garry Crystal

From the author of the novel, Leaving London and the short story collection, All of Us With Our Pointless Worries and Inconsequential Dramas.

How can you ever hope to become a well-adjusted adult when your only role models are violent, bullying teachers?

The Days That Don’t Disappear is a true story set during the 1970s in a Scottish, Catholic primary school.

This is the first-hand tale of four years of violent bullying towards children, not from other children, but from school teachers who were in a position of trust. An honest account of a less than idyllic childhood and a story of growing up and learning what life can really be like if you happen to be unfortunate enough.

Excerpts

“She was in her mid-forties. Tall, may...

Dark Knights 3: The Dark Humor of Police Officers

by Robert L. Bryan

Police work is heroic, dangerous, tragic, and stressful. It is also funny. I spent twenty years with the NYC Transit Police and NYPD and without a doubt, the funniest stories I ever heard were from cops. Cops can find something funny in almost anything, regardless of how dark or morbid. Dark humor is a necessary defense mechanism in policing. It allows police officers to cope with the insanity they deal with on a daily basis. Do you want to see just how funny cops can be? Then look inside! ...

The Vodka Diaries: A Peace Corps Volunteer's Adventures in Russia

by Richard Sayette

A Peace Corps Volunteer's Adventures In Russia!In a radio broadcast on October 1st, 1939, Winston Churchill referred to Russia as, “a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.” During my tenure as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Russian Far East, I found Churchill’s words to be accurate, as my limited knowledge about Russia stemmed from Dostoevsky and Pushkin novels. From the summer of 1994 until late 1995, I lived and worked in the Russian Far East as a Peace Corps Volunteer managing a small business center; only a few miles from both the Chinese and North Korean borders. I experienced firsthand the thrilling and often confusing environment as the Russian people established a foothold in a more open society marked by their initial forays into capitalism.My experiences living with...

We usually picture soul mate relationships as happy, fulfilled, romantic eternal love, but soul mates and twin souls have their own share of tribulations upon striving for a happy ending. If we would seize a thought what a soul mate life is behind the curtain, or even behind the laughter, we may wonder how every soul mate couple had survived and “made it”, and what lessons they have gained throughout separation how they have reckoned, “You make me a better person.” With her beloved, Jason, Stella Hart co-authors a forthcoming book, ...

Right when the fervor of the revolutionary spirit was beginning to subside, the pen of Thomas Paine came along and ignited the fires of American liberty once again. Yet decades later, when Paine returned to the American shores that he helped liberate, he was met with a bitter homecoming. Paine had arrived right on the heels of his association with bloody upheavals in revolutionary France and the publication of his unapologetically anti-Christian tracts, which did go over well in an America swept by the Second Great Awakening.

The Mixtape Manifesto: A Pop Culture Confessional

by SW Hammond

A Lost Boy in search of Winnie Cooper with a helping of tongue-in-cheek wit and sarcasm.From music industry professional SW Hammond comes a compilation of provocative essays woven to create the misguided anti-love story of a young man learning about relationships through Axl Rose, Paris Hilton, and Taylor Swift.Raised on rock n’ roll, Hammond blends an unparalleled view of pop culture and philosophy that plagues his irrational sense of women and what they want.

Franz Kafka: The Necessity of Form

by Stanley Corngold

In Stanley Corngold’s view, the themes and strategies of Kafka’s fiction are generated by a tension between his concern for writing and his growing sense of its arbitrary character. Analyzing Kafka’s work in light of "the necessity of form," which is also a merely formal necessity, Corngold uncovers the fundamental paradox of Kafka’s art and life. The first section of the book shows how Kafka’s rhetoric may be understood as the daring project of a man compelled to live his life as literature. In the central part of the book, Corngold reflects on the place of Kafka within the modern tradition, discussing such influential precursors of Cervantes, Flaubert, and Nietzsche, whose works display a comparable narrative disruption. Kafka’s distinctive narrative strategies, Corngold poin...

by Huma Zuellah Ahmed

God created trials, so He could test you with your truth. You are born free, but you must learn to be pain-free. 37 Lessons on How to Gain from Loss: A Believer’s Journey from Trial to Triumph is my own story of remembering, realizing and reaffirming this basic human truth.

Nabokov: The Mystery of Literary Structures

by Leona Toker

Vladimir Nabokov described the literature course he taught at Cornell as "a kind of detective investigation of the mystery of literary structures." Leona Toker here pursues a similar investigation of the enigmatic structures of Nabokov's own fiction. According to Toker, most previous critics stressed either Nabokov’s concern with form or the humanistic side of his works, but rarely if ever the two together. In sensitive and revealing readings of ten novels, Toker demonstrates that the need to reconcile the human element with aesthetic or metaphysical pursuits is a constant theme of Nabokov’s and that the tension between technique and content is itself a key to his fiction. Written with verve and precision, Toker’s book begins with Pnin and follows the circular pattern that is one of ...
