Ever since I read Lynn Ungar's "Camas Lilies"—a poem that has touched the lives of thousands of people—I've hoped she would publish a collection of poetry. Bread and Other Miracles is a wish come true. These poems come from and speak to many dimensions of what it means to be human. But they have this in common: they take subtle, complex, and elusive experiences and make them accessible without diminishing the mystery. They give the reader a chance to walk around and into the miracles of everyday life, to dwell more deeply in self, other, nature, and spirit. Immerse yourself in this world of words and find yourself more deeply immersed in the world of your own life. —Parker J. Palmer (author of Healing the Heart of Democracy, Let Your Life Speak, and The Courage to Teach)

Eleven-year-old Bailey believes in miracles. She has to; it will take a miracle to keep her warring parents together. This summer they are at a Marriage Counselling camp, leaving Bailey and her little brother Kevin with their estranged grandmother in the island town of Felicity Bay. There, an eccentric deposed minister makes a prophecy that a stranger from the sea will change everything. When Bailey discovers a mermaid-shaped piece of driftwood, she begins to believe that the mermaid is this stranger from the sea. Then, when a dolphin becomes stranded on the beach, Bailey forgets her own troubles and rouses the reluctant locals into action. Written in light and lyrical free verse, Shari Green’s warm and wistful novel brings Bailey face to face with both hard and beautiful truths about growing up and growing into her own ability to shape the world.

This book is intended to show Jesus's deity through the signs and dialogue in the book of John. John has recorded eight signs or miracles in his Gospel. He begins with the marriage at Cana and progresses through his Gospel to the resurrection, the greatest of all the signs. These miracles in the book of John, and all the Bible for that matter, are not arbitrary but were chosen by the Holy Spirit to show that Jesus is who he says he is. John himself tells us his purpose in writing his Gospel in John 20:21: "But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name." This book is intended for you to look at the miracle and sayings of Jesus in John and show how they point to Jesus being the promised Messiah, the Son of God, deity incarnate. John showed who Jesus was when he said, "I am the bread of life," and proceeded to feed the five thousand with the loaves and fish. John records that he said, "I am the light of the world," and then Jesus proceeded to heal a man born blind from birth. He told Mary at the death of Lazarus, "I am the resurrection and the life," and proceeded to raise the dead. Finally, he told his disciples, "I lay my life down, and I will take it up again." Then he went to the cross, died, and was buried to rise again on the third day. And just in case there is any doubt as to his resurrection, he appears to Thomas in the upper room and to the disciples by the sea of Tiberius. It is my prayer that this book may prove who Jesus is to the minds of all who read it. That they may come to believe that Jesus is who he said he is""the Messiah, the Son of God, who died for our sins""and is raised to make it just as if we never sinned (Romans 4:25).

Boris Jakim here presents two major theological essays by Russian Orthodox theologian Sergius Bulgakov in English translation for the first time. "On Holy Relics," a 1918 response to Bolshevik desecration of the relics of Russian saints, develops a comprehensive theology of holy relics, connecting them with the Incarnation and showing their place in sacramental theology. The second essay, "On the Gospel Miracles," written in 1932, presents a Christological doctrine of miracles, focusing on how human activity relates to the works of Christ. Both essays are suffused with Bulgakov's faith in Christian resurrection and with his signature "religious materialism," in which the corporeal is illuminated by the spiritual and the earthly is transfigured into the heavenly.

Explanations of Jesusb miracles often get stuck in their supernatural elements, speculating whether such things could possibly have occurred. Jeffrey John argues that this is to mistake the shell for the kernel. The Gospel writers recorded the many miracles of Jesus not to provoke open-mouthed amazement but, rather, to prompt readers to seek the deeper meaning inside each of these spectacular events. A best-seller in England and now available for the first time in the United States, "The Meaning in the Miracles" is praised as a must-have guide to Jesusb miracles. John walks readers through each miracle story, providing the biblical text then offering insightful commentary that first connects the event with other biblical themes and then makes clear its meaning for today. Each discussion ends with a selection of relevant scripture passages, quotes from literature, and other material meant to aid in further personal reflection and prayer. As John shows, the stories of Jesusb miraculous works are loaded with prophetic and theological significance meant primarily to foster personal faith. By reflecting on the depths and dimensions of meaning the Gospel writers intended to convey, readers encounter afresh the One whose works of power were always a means of announcing the good news of his transforming love -- then and now. bA delight: considerable scholarship with a light touch. . . . Highly recommended.b -- "The Reader"

Shepherd's Notes- Christian Classics Series is designed to give readers a quick, step by step overview of some of the enduring treasures of the Christian faith. They are designed to be used along side the classic itself- either in individual study or in a study group. The faithful of all generations have found spiritual nourishment in the Scriptures and in the works of Christians of earlier generations. Martin Luther and John Calvin would not have become who they were apart from their reading Augustine. God used the writings of Martin Luther to move John Wesley from a religion of dead works to an experience at Aldersgate in which his "heart was strangely warmed." Shepherd's Notes will give pastors, laypersons, and students access to some of the treasures of Christian faith.
