The Piper family is steeped in secrets, lies, and unspoken truths. At the eye of the storm is one secret that threatens to shake their lives -- even destroy them. Set on stormy Cape Breton Island off Nova Scotia, Fall on Your Knees is an internationally acclaimed multigenerational saga that chronicles the lives of four unforgettable sisters. Theirs is a world filled with driving ambition, inescapable family bonds, and forbidden love. Compellingly written, by turns menacingly dark and hilariously funny, this is an epic tale of five generations of sin, guilt, and redemption.

This collection of essays focuses on Canadian history and its legacies as represented in novels and films in English and French, produced in Canada mainly in the 1980s and 1990s. The approach is both cross-cultural and interdisciplinary, aiming at articulating Canadian differences through a comparison of anglophone and francophone cultures, illustrated by works treating some of the different groups which make up Canadian society – English-Canadian, Québecois, Acadian, Native, and ethnic minorities. The emphasis is on the problematic representation of Canadianness, which is closely bound up with constructions of history and its legacies – dispossession, criminality, nomadism, Gothicism, the Maritime.The English/French language difference is emblematic of Canadian difference; the two-part arrangement, with one section on Literature and the other on Film, sets up the pattern of relationships between the two forms of cultural representation that these essays explore. Essays in the Literature section are on single texts by such writers as: Margaret Atwood, Tomson Highway, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Anne Michaels, and Alice Munro; Gabrielle Roy, Anne Hébert, Antonine Maillet, Bernard Assiniwi, and Régine Robin. The Film section with its mirror structure both supplements and amplifies this dialogue, extending notions of Canadianness with its emphasis on voices from Quebec and Acadia traditionally 'othered' in Canadian history. Filmmakers treated include: Phillip Borsos, Atom Egoyan, Ted Kotcheff, Mort Ransen, and Vincent Ward; Denys Arcand, Gilles Carle, Alanis Obomsawin, Léa Pool, and Jacques Savoie.

In her quest to have a more meaningful spiritual relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ, Savitri Scott made the choice to look deeper into God’s Word to find Him and have daily conversations with Him. The result has been irrefutable evidence of the power and significance of prayer in the life of a Christian, along with inexplicable peace, joy, and reassurance. Sometimes life’s issues convince us to move away from God, rather than toward Him, but that is not what He intended for His children. This twenty-one-day devotional uses ordinary life situations and affirms through prayer and Scripture how God inspires and directs us to confront those situations. It demonstrates the sufficiency and privilege of prayer, and non-condemningly assures of God’s declaration of love and promise of forgiveness and salvation through His Son Jesus Christ. Centered on daily prayer and Scripture, this book endorses God’s Word to enliven a stronger and deeper relationship with our Creator and Father. Let the readings become a personal tool to spiritually stimulate and jumpstart continual, personal, spiritual intimacy with God. Seek personal, intimate time with God for a more personal and intimate relationship with Him.

The eight essays in "Image Technologies in Canadian Literature" reveal the ongoing importance of film and photography in the production of Canadian literary narratives. Covering modern to cutting-edge postmodern and postcolonial authors, the role of image texts and technologies is thoroughly investigated in relation to translation, performance, history, memory, point-of-view, picture poetics, and dialectical images; authors covered include Michael Ondaatje, Daphne Marlatt, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Robert Kroetsch, Joseph Dandurand and Stan Douglas. The resulting engagement with some of the key theorists of film and photography, such as Walter Benjamin, Roland Barthes, and Susan Sontag, leads to a lively contribution to the study of hybrid forms of Canadian literature and its key theoretical/image texts.

Unsettled Remains: Canadian Literature and the Postcolonial Gothic examines how Canadian writers have combined a postcolonial awareness with gothic metaphors of monstrosity and haunting in their response to Canadian history. The essays gathered here range from treatments of early postcolonial gothic expression in Canadian literature to attempts to define a Canadian postcolonial gothic mode. Many of these texts wrestle with Canada’s colonial past and with the voices and histories that were repressed in the push for national consolidation but emerge now as uncanny reminders of that contentious history. The haunting effect can be unsettling and enabling at the same time. In recent years, many Canadian authors have turned to the gothic to challenge dominant literary, political, and social narratives. In Canadian literature, the “postcolonial gothic” has been put to multiple uses, above all to figure experiences of ambivalence that have emerged from a colonial context and persisted into the present. As these essays demonstrate, formulations of a Canadian postcolonial gothic differ radically from one another, depending on the social and cultural positioning of who is positing it. Given the preponderance, in colonial discourse, of accounts that demonize otherness, it is not surprising that many minority writers have avoided gothic metaphors. In recent years, however, minority authors have shown an interest in the gothic, signalling an emerging critical discourse. This “spectral turn” sees minority writers reversing long-standing characterizations of their identity as “monstrous” or invisible in order to show their connections to and disconnection from stories of the nation.

In this paperback release of Here Comes the Bride (formerly titled The Church), Pastor Ken Hutcherson reveals how God's original intention for His church has been distorted under stifling layers of tradition, denominationalism, racism, and fear. Many of today's believers jump from one congregation to another, searching in vain for the "real thing." Hutcherson calls us back to the book of Acts to find a church that's bold, energetic, empowered, and unstoppable. He underlines God's unchanging heart for the church -- and His unchanging will for us to be a people of truth, power, reconciliation, and love.

"The papers and responses in this volume were delivered, fittingly, on All Saints Day, 2013, as part of a day-long event to celebrate the career of Stanley Hauerwas, upon the occasion of his retirement from the faculty of Duke Divinity School. . . . [T]he central message of the day was encapsulated in the theme of the whole event: "The Difference Christ Makes." As the different speakers talked about Stanley's paradigm-changing impact on scholarship, one insight came ever more clearly into focus: the deepest theme of Stanley's work, the consistent thread running through all his thought, is his emphasis on the centrality of Jesus Christ. At the end of the day, his work is not defined by the ethics of character, or by pacifism, or by countercultural communitarian ecclesiology. All these elements play important roles in his writings, but they are reflexes or consequences of his more fundamental commitment to think rigorously about the implications of confessing Jesus Christ as Lord." --from the foreword by Richard B.
