What if you're living in the wrong reality? Doesn't everyone want the good life these days? Our shopping mall world offers us a never-ending array of pleasures to explore. Consumerism promises us a vision of heaven on earth-a reality that's hyper-real. We've all experienced hyperreality: a candy so 'grape-ey' it doesn't taste like grapes any more; a model's photo so manipulated that it doesn't even look like her; a theme park version of life that tells us we can have something better than the real thing. But what if this reality is not all that it's cracked up to be? Admit it, we've been ripped off by our culture and its version of reality that leaves us lonely, bored, and trapped. But what's the alternative? In The Trouble With Paris, pastor Mark Sayers shows us how the lifestyles of most young adults (19-35) actually work against a life of meaning and happiness to sabotage their faith. Sayers shows how a fresh understanding of God's intention for our world is the true path to happiness, fulfillment, and meaning.

This DVD-based series helps people examine three different levels of reality: hyperreality-that which the media tells us we should seek; reality-the world we really live in; and God's reality-what we should ultimately be seeking. The Trouble with Paris emerged out of a series of talks that Mark Sayers had developed, originally titled "How Paris Hilton Made Me a Better Christian." This series of talks was responsible for hundreds of young adults rediscovering faith in profound ways. The product features four 20-minute video episodes full of unique animation, fast-paced teaching, and relevant subject matter. This participant's guide will serve as a companion to the DVD (sold separately).

The French poet Jean de La Fontaine (1621-95), renowned for his Fables, wrote six letters to his wife describing his travels from Paris to Limoges in 1663. The letters contain a wealth of observations on the changing landscape, towns, and works of art and architecture, particularly in the Loire valley and at the (destroyed) Chateau of Richelieu. Never intended for publication, the letters provide candid glimpses into the great poet's mind and character; no other writings by him are as personal in nature. The Journey is here translated for the first time into English, The translator/editor has provided an introduction that traces La Fontaine's early career; explains the reason for the trip to Limoges; discusses his sketches of people he encounters on the way; and analyzes the poet's reactions to works of art and architecture, his personal comments to his wife, and his epistolary style, with its engaging good humor and candor. The detailed Notes contribute to the scholarly usefulness of this edition. The book should appeal to all lovers of La Fontaine and to those interested in the Grand Siecle and the era of Louis XIV.

"... impressive and challenging reevaluation of the sixteenth-century origins of the Enlightenment." —Sixteenth Century Journal In this book, George Huppert introduces the reader to a group of talented young men, some of them teenagers, who were the talk of the town in Renaissance Paris. They called themselves philosophes, they wrote poetry, they studied Greek and mathematics—and they entertained subversive notions concerning religion and politics. Classically trained, they wrote, nevertheless, in French, so as to reach the widest possible audience. These young radicals fostered a succession of disciples who expressed confidence in the eventual enlightenment of humankind and whose ideas would bear fruit two centuries later.

Thirty-two essays—many never before published—of life in Paris from writers who were drawn by the city’s charms to take up residence there. In thirty-two personal essays, more than half of which are published here for the first time, authors describe how they were seduced by Paris—and then began to see things differently. They came to write, to cook, to find love, to study, to raise children, to escape, or to live the way it’s done in French movies; they came from the United States, Canada, and England; from Iran, Iraq, and Cuba; and—a few—from other parts of France. And they stayed, not as tourists, but as Parisians; some are still living there. In Paris Was Ours, these outsiders-turned-insiders share their observations and revelations about the City of Light. The collection includes entries from celebrated literary expats, such as Diane Johnson, David Sedaris, Judith Thurman, Joe Queenan, and Edmund White. Together, their reflections form an unusually perceptive and multifaceted portrait of a city that is entrancing, at times exasperating, but always fascinating. They remind us that Paris belongs to everyone it has touched, and to each in a different way. “[A] wonderful collection . . . The essays capture the mood of the city in all of its dark and light shades, evoking the spirit of Eugene Atget and Marcel Proust.” —Chicago Tribune
