Experience the liturgical seasons of Lent, Holy Week, and Eastertide in the company of poets and novelists from across the centuries.
This third literary guide compiled by Sarah Arthur completes the church calendar with daily and weekly readings for Lent and Easter from classic and contemporary literature.
Here’s a sneak peek into what the book is about: Stephanie was starting to feel invisible. This is the vulnerable (and often mortifying) true story of a girl who tried really hard to find someone to fall in love with—even when she mostly just ended up falling flat on her face.
All around her, her friends were getting married, and she found herself decidedly alone. So she started praying in earnest for God to bring the right man into her life. But amid the cringe-worthy setups and awkward encounters, Stephanie found God’s grace and love meeting her there in ways she never could have imagined—once she opened her eyes to see., Stephanie’s funny, tender, and insightful words take the reader on a journey that points to God’s faithfulness and kindness at every stop along the road.
Considering these adaptations on their own terms can thus be challenging for Austen scholars.
Our stock in trade is, after all, close attention to Austens use of language, the subtlety of her characterization and plotting, and the rich social, historical, and political contexts on which she draws, often unobtrusively: the very elements that are most likely to disappear, or be radically re-envisioned, when her works are imported across significant distances of time, geography, and culture.
Sperling argues that in “a global economy in which language differences frequently inhibit communication, visual images appear to facilitate communication across language and cultural borders” (27).
In fact, as Nicholas Mirzoeff proposes, visual culture has become the foremost postmodern space for cultural interaction and transaction; it thus offers the most dynamic global platform for the constitution, negotiation and contestation of the plurality of meanings and cultures, since for him, visual culture “is now the locus of cultural and historical change.” Sperling develops Mirzoeff’s proposition further by arguing that the study of visual culture, therefore, should acknowledge that the visual has emerged as a site of trans-cultural space, where cultural transactions and subsequent transformations take place.
Praise for Sarah Arthur's literary guides: "A rich feast." — Lauren F. This is the story of my misadventures in dating, but more than that, it’s the story of how I was knocked over by God’s grace and love.It’s the story of how I found God in the middle of my waiting.But more important, it’s about surrounding yourself with a spiritual posse—mentors, friends, prayer partners, family—who will walk with you through the valleys and around the blind corners.Stephanie Rische is one of those people: honest, hilarious, and wise. Sarah Arthur, author of If you’ve ever been brave enough to outright ask God for the desire of your heart only to be met with what feels like stony silence, this book is for you.
