A Tremor of Bliss: Contemporary Writers on the Saints, Elie, Paul
2 A Tremor of Bliss: Contemporary Writers on the Saints Elie, Paul
Good. 
Hardcover. Hardcover with dustjacket 1994 Harcourt. 1 creased page; small stain at outer page edge. Text very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. 325pp. Language: English. Introduction by Robert Coles. NOTE: Cannot ship outside U.S. via Global Priority -- Surface or Airmail only. 'The 17 diverse essays in this absorbing collection edited by freelancer Elie are marked by the authors' largely unstinting disclosures of how they have been moved by the saints about whom they write. Novelist Kathryn Harrison chillingly describes her own girlhood extravagances of desire and denial in light of the devotions and ascetism of Catherine of Siena. Behind his rapt and consuming interest in the founder of the Society of Jesus, fiction writer Ron Hansen acknowledges his hope to figure out how to live my life magnificently, as Ignatius did. Kathleen Norris, a memoirist and poet, convincingly reexamines the lives of the early church's virgin martyrs as models for women of today. Ruminating on St. John of the Cross, novelist David Plante ends with a prayer that his writing be not about what has to do with me, but about what has to do with the great and the brilliant darkness of God. Francine Prose finds a resonant ironic tone in the writings of St. Theresa of Avila; Paul Baumann, an editor of Commonweal and young parent, considers fatherhood as he connects St. Joseph to James Joyce's Leopold Bloom. In his introduction, Coles calls these essays a celebration of the miracle of commitment. They suggest a passion as inspiring as that of their subjects.'--Publishers Weekly, 1994.

Superclean; no marks or creases; pages bright; binding tight. 214 pages; Index; Notes; bibliography. Language: English. 'Animal rights is animal theology, in Andrew Linzey's view. He argues that historical theology, creatively defined, must reject humanocentricity. He questions the assumption that if theology is to speak on this issue, it must only do so on the side of the oppressors. Linzey's theological query investigates not only the abstractions of theory, but also the realities of hunting, animal experimentation, and genetic engineering. He is an important, pioneering, Christian voice speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.'--from back cover.

9 Born of a Woman: A Bishop Rethinks the Birth of Jesus Spong, John Shelby
Very Good. 
Hardcover. Stated 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1992 HarperSanFrancisco. Has REMAINDER MARK at bottom page edge. Otherwise very clean; pages bright; binding tight; never read. Light store shelfwear. 245 pages; Index; Notes; Bibliography. Language: English. Episcopal Bishop of Newark explores the Virgin Mary tradition (created by dominant males as a feminine ideal) and its contemporary repercussions. 'Spong, an Episcopal bishop and best-selling author (Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism), provides a courageous look at the biblical stories of the birth of Jesus, and their implications. Spong is careful to acknowledge previous scholars and to distinguish fact or knowledge from speculation. He encourages a midrashish or imaginative approach to the Gospels and points out how literalism of scripture and creed in the Virgin Mary references led to sexism in church teaching. This book is a marvelous combination of scholarly, speculative, and imaginative reflection written in language accessible to the theologically unsophisticated. Highly recommended.'--Library Journal, 1992. Keywords: Marian, Holy, Blessed, Mother, theology, Maryology, Christology, Nativity, Bible, New Testament.

Heavenly Supper: The Story of Maria Janis, Tomizza, Fulvio; Schutte, Anne Jacobson (translator)
19 Heavenly Supper: The Story of Maria Janis Tomizza, Fulvio; Schutte, Anne Jacobson (translator)
Very Good. 
Hardcover. Hardcover with dustjacket University of Chicago Press 1991. Rubbing and small scratch on jacket. Very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. 196 pages. Language: English. 'In his first book to appear in English, Italian writer Tomizza presents a probing, engrossing, scholarly account of 17th-century spirituality, mysticism, duplicity, crime and punishment during the Venetian Inquisition. Maria Janis, a peasant from the hill country, was observed receiving communion outside of a church. This sacrilege was reported to the authorities, and she and the priest who administered the sacrament to her were arrested. Supposedly, the bread Janis received in communion was all that she allowed herself to eat each day, and she claimed that she had observed this fast for five years, having renounced all other food as a religious sacrifice. The church tribunal sentenced Father Morali to prison for 5 years for the crime of consecrating and administering the host outside the confines of a church. Janis, who admitted that her fast was a hoax, was imprisoned for her pretense of sanctity, then transferred, at her request, to the pious establishment of the Mendicanti. Tomizza becomes the champion that Janis, who lived in an era of religious emulation rather than of authentic mystical fervor, lacked; he finds her not a shabby impostor but, instead, a climber on the ladder to paradise.'--Publishers Weekly, 1991. Keywords: starvation, devout, anorexia, nervosa, anorexic, Venice, Italy, Counter-Reformation, Catholic, Catholicism, history.
