This book provides an alternative to the more conventional modes of qualitative and quantitative inquiry currently used in professional training programs, particularly in education. It features a very accessible presentation that combines application, rationale, critique, and inspiration—and is itself an example of this kind of writing. It teaches students how to use personal writing in order to analyze, explicate, and advance their ideas. And it encourages minority students, women, and others to find and express their authentic voices by teaching them to use their own lives as primary resources for their scholarship.

<I>Our Stories Matter explains and exemplifies the methodology of Scholarly Personal Narrative (SPN) writing for marginalized, underrepresented, and previously -disappeared- students at all levels of higher education. Presently no book looks at the whys and hows of scholarly personal narrative writing that focuses on this particular audience of underrepresented students. SPN writing has its origins in early slave narratives; 1960s feminist liberation stories; religio-spiritual autobiographies; existential, postmodern, and postcritical theory; and memoir/autobiographies of victimization and victory. <I>Our Stories Matter attempts to fill a huge vacuum in the literature on the art and craft of personal narrative writing for undergraduates and graduates, because it appeals to a hugely expanding, previously underrepresented audience. It also provides faculty with a substantive pedagogical rationale and a writer's guide for teaching this kind of scholarly research - not just to underrepresented students but to all students who are ready to tell their stories in their own original, creative ways."

MacCamon maintains that the bible is best read not as a rule book but as a text with stories that reveal truths and provide examples of how we should live. She emphasizes how the two testaments reveal God's plan for the salvation of all people and serve as a model for leading a moral and spiritual life.

Sydnee Viray co-authored Our Stories Matter: Liberating the Voices of Marginalized Students Using Scholarly Personal Narrative Writing as a graduate student completing her Master of Education degree while working full-time at her University's Student Financial Services office. What outsiders might view as an insurmountable task, she details in this SPN manuscript as "the journey that became her destination." Using Scholarly Personal Narrative (SPN) as a research method, she suggests that SPN employs validation, empowerment, and pragmatically applied ethical tools that endow students with the privilege and honor of authorship leveraging her/his own personal narratives. The significance of achieving the status of published author, while still a student, promotes varying levels of determination, actualization, and authentic connections to the researched topic. Her thesis is a postmodern and constructivist research document that recognizes the researcher's personal experience (written as a scholarly personal narrative) as a valid object of study.

All cultures and all religious movements have their own traditional sayings, and most have a collection of religious maxims as well. This book shows how maxim usage is valuable in determining by whom, for whom, and how maxims are used to provide internal ordering, stability, and a general staple of teaching material for religious movements. In particular, readers are invited to consider the full and proper context that stands behind the social interaction of Paul and the believing community in Corinth. The author argues that this context is incomplete without a recognition of the rhetorical conventions of maxim usage in Paul's world. Understanding Paul's use of maxim argumentation as, in part, a response to the maxim argumentation of some Corinthians opens a window on 1 Corinthians 1-10 that has not been previously explored.

While knowledge can be liberating, what counts as knowledge is contestable. Drawing on her experience in adult education, and research, the author mounts a radical challenge to the orthodoxies in adult learning and continuing education and proposes a programme of research, geared to articulating urgent problems with people other than academics.
