In a delightful yet profound reading of the Scriptures, Enter the Story opens up the central stories in the Bible and shows how they are alive in us. These stories happen over and over again, much like a great unfinished symphony, in the lives of those of us who look to Scripture for inspiration. In this sense, the biblical stories are metaphors?events that may have occurred long ago among biblical characters, but also, the same dramas great and small that happen to believers today, every day.
Fran Ferder takes familiar stories from Scripture and shows us what the significant events, or feasts, in the great Christian story mean and how they continue to unfold in our lives -- in ways we do not expect. These old stories are new stories. Unfinished stories. They are our stories. And when we understand them, they can transform our lives.

Each life experience, some good, some bad, tends to alter the direction of the next phase of one’s life. At times, it’s being in the right place at the right time or being in the wrong place at the wrong time, depending on one’s own perspective. The greatest advantage of my life was living in America with the freedom to pursue my own destiny. Life is a never-ending learning experience; life is neither good nor bad, neither fair nor unfair. It is what it is, deal with it and move on—live life to the fullest.

Our supreme fabulist of the ordinary now turns his attention on a 9-year-old American girl and produces a novel as enchantingly idiosyncratic as any he has written. Nory Winslow wants to be a dentist or a designer of pop-up books. She likes telling stories and inventing dolls. She has nightmares about teeth, which may explain her career choice. She is going to school in England, where she is mocked for her accent and her friendship with an unpopular girl, and she has made it through the year without crying. Nicholson Baker follows Nory as she interacts with her parents and peers, thinks about God and death-watch beetles, and dreams of cows with pointed teeth. In this precocious child he gives us a heroine as canny and as whimsical as Lewis Carroll's Alice and evokes childhood in all its luminous weirdness.

In this volume scholars from around the world read the story of the Earth in major Wisdom Traditions using the ecojustice principles outlined in Volume 1, 'Readings from the Perspective of Earth'. These readings uncover a range of fresh perspectives about Earth in seeking to discover where the voices of Earth are suppressed or heard in the Wisdom texts. Some texts reveal an ecokinship between Earth and Wisdom. Texts from Job challenge a cosmic model that gives priority to heaven over Earth. Still others challenge the mandate to dominate in Genesis 1.28. In many texts, Wisdom provides a vehicle for a new kinship with Earth. Comtributors include Jenny Wightman, Hendrik Viviers, Carole Fontaine, Izak Spangenberg, Alice Sinnott, Willie van Heerden, Katherine Dell, Dale Patrick, Marie Turner and Laura Hobgood-Oster.
