LG Williams may not have been the first alternative poet ever. But, Hated and Feared, his newest book of poems, may be one of the best poetry books of our generation. In any even, one thing cannot be denied: Hated and Feared is the book that makes it all possible. Anyone who enjoys poetry knows what sprang from Williams "golden age," and they owe s something to this book. Evening reading it a decade from now will be an experience. Its poetry bombards your ears with an assault of punk energy, tempered by just enough pop sensibility to make it extremely enjoyable and tremendously good at the same time.

Picking up and pulling at the vibrant threads of Robert Priest’s last book of poems, Reading the Bible Backward, this collection explores new themes while spanning multiple strands of thought. One strand leads, with unabashed candor and elegance, through the author’s love life; another, through fields of praise; a third experiments with automated metaphors and delivers a challenging new selection of mash-ups that Priest calls meme splices. A fourth thread rekindles the author’s love of the prose poem to produce a suite of strange tales, bizarre playlets, and phonetic modifications. With flair and daring, Previously Feared Darkness consorts with forms and subject matter to present the work of a master getting deep, nasty, and hilarious with the best of them.

In the summer of 1978, the Chicago mob is struggling. As an up-and coming cartel prepares to unleash a blizzard of cocaine and challenge the reeling Mafia for dominance of the second city streets, there is only one man who can stop them—Max Walsh, a thirty-something Vietnam veteran and narcotics detective with a bad drug habit. When FBI agent and family friend Tom Callahan asks Max to keep an eye on his problematic, bombshell daughter who has just made the unfortunate mistake of falling for Tony Delvechio, the head of the cartel, Max goes undercover with the goal of removing Therese from Tony’s life and taking down the cartel in the process. But Max is about to get more than he bargained for. Instead of focusing on fighting his own demons, Max falls for Therese—before he discovers she has already married the crazy, blood thirsty creep. In this intriguing story of drug deals, Mafia crime, and the seamy side of life gone wrong, a seasoned detective’s spontaneous choices are about to lead him down a very unpredictable and dangerous path.

We can often learn as much from political movements that failed as from those that achieved their goals. Nationalists Who Feared the Nation looks at one such frustrated movement: a group of community leaders and writers in Venice, Trieste, and Dalmatia during the 1830s, 40s, and 50s who proposed the creation of a multinational zone surrounding the Adriatic Sea. At the time, the lands of the Adriatic formed a maritime community whose people spoke different languages and practiced different faiths but identified themselves as belonging to a single region of the Hapsburg Empire. While these activists hoped that nationhood could be used to strengthen cultural bonds, they also feared nationalism's homogenizing effects and its potential for violence. This book demonstrates that not all nationalisms attempted to create homogeneous, single-language, -religion, or -ethnicity nations. Moreover, in treating the Adriatic lands as one unit, this book serves as a correction to "national" histories that impose our modern view of nationhood on what was a multinational region.

Whether we are conscious of it or not, we fear difference. That often unwarranted fear leads us to create enemies in our hearts and minds, and fear was no stranger to Oakhurst Presbyterian Church, as confessed by Pastor Nibs Stroupe: "We have listened to one another's stories here, and we have discovered that the people we feared, those monsters we thought would destroy us -- because of different skin colors, different genders, different sexual orientations, different economic categories -- they are really our sisters and brothers, the folks for whom our hearts long." In the 1960s the Oakhurst congregation was 900 members strong, but by the time Nibs Stroupe arrived in 1983, "white flight" had left less than 100 on the church's dwindling membership rolls. Since then, Oakhurst has undergone an extraordinary transformation, re-inventing itself as a growing community that welcomes everyone. The congregation has attracted national attention for its radically inclusive and egalitarian diversity, which extends beyond racial integration to class, gender, sexual orientation, and theological perspective. How have people from such dissimilar backgrounds come together to create a harmonious and thriving whole? In what biblical vision is it rooted and shaped? By what theological resources is it fed and sustained? The heart of the answer to these questions lies in the exceptional sermons of Nibs Stroupe. Growing out of the experience of a multicultural congregation in which diversity is both valued and feared, these messages offer an uncompromising prophetic vision of the American church's identity and mission. Stroupe firmly grounds a liberal social viewpoint within the biblical and theological traditions of the church, and he calls us to hear God's claim on us in our place and in our time. Underlying his powerful sermons is the fundamental conviction that the barriers that separate us from our neighbors have been brought down in Jesus Christ. "Where Once We Feared Enemies" will be an indispensable addition to any pastor's library. It is also inspiring and enlightening reading for anyone interested in the future of the American church, as well as its role in the continuing stories of race relations, civil rights, and peace and justice issues. "These sermons are not your typical "social action" homilies. Rather Nibs Stroupe cuts to the quick of the biblical message of Jesus as it impacts the minds and hearts of thinking people of every race, class, and political stripe. This is theologically rich fare that will satisfy and energize Christians and non-Christians alike. These are the kind of no-nonsense sermons that have made Oakhurst one of the most faithful and consistent witnesses to the love and justice-making of the gospel that I have seen in more than half a century of ministry." Gayraud S. Wilmore Emeritus Professor of African-American Church History Interdenominational Theological Center Gibson "Nibs" Stroupe and his wife, Caroline Leach, have been the pastors of Oakhurst Presbyterian Church in Decatur, Georgia, since 1983. They are the co-authors of "O Lord, Hold Our Hands," a book detailing Oakhurst's unique multicultural ministry. Stroupe is also the author of" While We Run This Race," which won the 1996 Gustavus Myers Award for outstanding book on human rights. Stroupe and his Oakhurst ministry have been featured in" Time," the "Wall Street Journal," and the "Christian Science Monitor," on "NBC Nightly News," CNN, and National Public Radio, and in several books. Chris Boesel (editor) is an assistant professor of Christian theology at Drew University Theological School.

When the zombie apocalypse hits and the dead begin to rise, Jonah and his friends are on a class field trip downtown. Panicked, they make a split-second decision to seek shelter in the Overlook, an apartment complex built like a fortress on the edge of town. But as they begin to face the realities of what it will take to survive, they realize that while making the decision of where to run was easy, living out the consequences of that decision may be impossible. From Carrie Ryan, the New York Times bestselling author of the Forest of Hands and Teeth books, What Once We Feared is an original digital short story about facing a world that is forever changed and in which survival means more than merely escaping the undead.

Nehemiah was a man who desired to restore the lost glory of Jerusalem; and he left his comfortable position as the cupbearer of the king of Babylon in order to do that great task. Though Nehemiah and the Jews were opposed and ridiculed, yet they continued to build; and they did the work. After the temple had been finished, Ezra came from Babylon to Jerusalem. He was a skilled scribe in the Law of Moses, which the Lord God of Israel had given. The king granted him all his request, according to the Hand of the Lord his God upon him. For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the Law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach Statutes and Ordinances in Israel. He was encouraged, as the Hand of the Lord his God was upon him; and he gathered leading men of Israel to go up with him to Jerusalem; and they came to Jerusalem, where he taught the Jews the Law of God.
