Book Excerpt :

What happens to the Responsorial Psalm in the Sunday liturgy? How can it help us pray the Sunday readings? How can it help in planning the liturgy? The Responsorial Psalm is the most neglected part of the Liturgy of the Word, yet it can be the key to all the rest. Its intent is to help bring the message of the other readings into our lives. This book addresses the riches of the Responsorial Psalm for every Sunday of the three-year cycle. It explains the psalm genre, offers exposition on the meaning and beauty of the psalm itself, and comments on the relationship of the Responsorial Psalm to the other readings. It is the book for anyone who wants to understand and appreciate the Sunday readings -- preachers, catechists, liturgists and all the people in the pews.

Book Short Summary:

For the first time, Sing a New Song tells the stories of four Canadian bishops who pushed the envelope and changed the world. All have faced severe opposition; one was involved in the only Anglican schism in Canadian history; two jeopardized their careers; and one was voted the sixth most important person of the twentieth century whose world view has transformed the wider society. Over the last 150 years, George Hills, David Somerville, Douglas Hambidge, and Michael Ingham adopted unpopular causes with their eyes wide open. They were the men who fought for and won rights for aboriginals, women, and gays and lesbians. In finely drawn and thoroughly researched biographies, Julie H. Ferguson weaves the bishops’ impact on society into Canada’s history while delivering compelling insights into their personal and spiritual lives. Meet this quartet of sharply contrasting and fearless bishops in Sing a New Song.

A New Song for China

Book Short Summary:

Bliss Wiant went to China in 1923 with the lofty goal of some day introducing hymns to Chinese Christians that would not sound foreign to them. It was a goal that occupied much of his life. The locale of his work was Yenching University, which was arguably the premier institution of higher education in China. There he established a department of music, and enabled students to discover and develop their musical talents. There also he taught students who had never before seen a western musical score, to sing and to love Handel's Messiah and other great music of the west. In less than 10 years after its first performance, the reputation of the university chorus was such that it was invited by the government of China to present the Messiah in Nanking, the national capitol, as the finale to a two-week exposition of the arts. A major milestone in the pursuit of his life's goal was reached in that same year (1937), when a hymnal (English Title, "Hymns of Universal Praise") was published. This was the culmination of years of collaborative effort involving scores of individuals. Not only was the hymnal a uniquely inter-denominational achievement, it also included for the first time, a substantial number of original, indigenous hymns. Wiant's work in China produced in him a great love for the people as well as a deep admiration for their culture, which he saw both as misunderstood and unappreciated in the U.S. Consequently he devoted much of his energy in the years that followed to being a cultural ambassador, representing China to his own countrymen. An important manifestation of this was his work and that of his wife, Mildred, in translating into English a number of the Chinese hymns that first appeared in Hymns of Universal Praise. Several of these are now found in hymns used in the U.S., in effect closing a circle begun when Wiant went to China in 1923.

Book Short Summary:

The book of Psalms occupies a unique place in Scripture, being both the Word from God and words to God from His people. Unfortunately, psalm singing no longer plays an integral part of worship in most evangelical churches. In this book, thirteen well-respected scholars urge the church to rediscover the treasure of the Psalms as they examine the history of psalm singing in the church, present biblical reasons for the liturgical practice, and articulate the practical value it provides us today.

  • Pdf File: a-new-song.pdf

Book Short Summary:

The Psalms frequently issue a call to sing a new song unto the Lord. While this call is often thought to refer to singing the Psalms or even other songs written by those more gifted than ourselves, Myers suggests such is not the primary intention. For as we are all beings created in the image of God, we are all called to create new songs in response to the word and work of God. It is with this in mind that Myers encourages the Christ-follower to consider a new approach to time spent in Scripture. The reader is encouraged to meditate on the Psalms and then respond with a unique song of worship to God. By seeking to create a new worshipful response to the Psalms the reader may find that the inevitably dry devotional times that nearly all of us encounter have been invigorated. A New Song is both a devotional and a guidebook. As a devotional, the reader is offered a glimpse into Myers multi-year journey through the Psalms resulting in the writing of over 170 poems. Each poem, when read alongside the accompanying Psalm, can help the prayerful reader to consider the ways in which God may be speaking through each Psalm. As a guidebook, A New Song briefly discusses our innate creative nature and then offers suggestions which, when illustrated by Myers examples, will encourage you to find your own creative voice with which to sing a new song unto the Lord.

Book Short Summary:

In this exciting new spin on the memoir, Bernie Smith takes the opportunity of a world cruise with his beloved wife Judy to reflect on his past, his professional success and his personal philosophy on life and faith, both in quiet moments by himself and in conversations with fellow passengers on the trip. From a hardscrabble upbringing on Long Island, Smith eventually became a great success in the field of computer programming. It all started when he was accepted into Fairfield Prep in Connecticut even though his family could scarcely afford it, where the Jesuits taught him about faith in God that reinforced his childhood Catholicism and sustained him for the rest of his life. From there, he achieved all the status symbols a young boy from humble roots could hope for: an executive title, a mansion, a wife and kids. But it all began to seem much less important after a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer that nearly killed him in middle age. While recuperating in Florida, Bernie met Judy, a ray of Southern sunshine who gave his life new meaning. Instead of being afraid of germs, health problems and other threats to his health and wealth, Bernie undertakes a new adventure - all the while bringing with him the lessons and wisdom from his past.

Book Short Summary:

This book of 170 original Christian poems and songs is offered for family and individual worship in the hope that ‘singing a new song to the Lord’ will refresh the excitement, wonder and joy of old truths that you have perhaps known for a long time. My friends of mature years are in my mind as I recall the medical maxim that ‘singing is good for the cardio-vascular system.” It is also good for the mind and soul to thoughtfully explore and even memorize Bible truths and poetically-condensed reminders of the marvellous love of God in Christ Jesus. So those who spend time alone may do their general health and mental alertness a favour by offering new praise to the Lord while they go about their normal home activities. Those unable to sing out loud for whatever reason may sing in their hearts with confidence that “He Who knows the heart” appreciates the heart’s song. This devotional content may also be shared in church groups, children's ministries and through personal correspondence. Psalm 912:1. "It is good to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High." Hebrews 13:15. "Therefore, let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name."

Book Short Summary:

"... a book which asks and answers a new, interesting question, using a rich range of biblical and humanistic methodologies." -- Journal of Biblical Literature This book examines a literary form within the Bible that has slipped through the cracks of modern scholarship: the mixing of song and story in biblical narrative. Journeying from ancient Egyptian battle accounts to Aramaic wisdom texts to early retellings of biblical tales in the Dead Sea Scrolls, Jewish-Hellenistic literature, and rabbinic midrash, Steven Weitzman follows the history of this form from its origins as a congeries of different literary behaviors to its emergence as a self-conscious literary convention.

Book Short Summary:

Have you lost your joy? Life’s obstacles and disappointments can tempt Christians to lose hope and hang up their joy, just as the Israelites hung their harps upon trees by the rivers of Babylon. In Heartstrings, Jill Briscoe discusses eight “trees” that believers hang their joy upon, including grief, grudge and gloom. Through biblical stories and personal narrative, Jill reminds us that hope and joy can be regained when we allow the Lord to touch the heartstrings of our souls. Once this happens, we are able to sing a new song to God and the world.

Book Short Summary:

Out on the barren margins of Babylonian exile, the great Psalmist suggests their captors are actually asking for a song of joy. Imagine that. Is it possible to sing the Lord's song in a foreign land? Christians today find themselves caught up in the massive sweep of secularizing culture. Do we have a joyful song to sing anymore? Do we know what our song has been throughout history? Could we possibly sing as a mighty choir, just perhaps igniting spiritual renewal for our world--and for each one of us as well? This book proposes the possibility of finding a new song for our time.

Book Short Summary:

This manuscript is ancient, priceless, bamboo-rolled, perfumed with musty spices. Sit comfortably by this good light, that you may learn the hard-won lesson that these characters contain.' The Song of Kieu is the greatest classic of Vietnamese literature. It tells the story of the beautiful Vuong Thúy Kieu, who agrees to a financially profitable marriage in order to save her family from ruinous debts, but is tricked into working in a brothel. Her tragic career involves jealous wives, slavery, war, poverty and she also becomes a nun twice. There are high points, such as when she teams up with muscle-bound, tender-hearted rebel hero who makes her his queen and summons all her wrongdoers to account, but the ending is bittersweet. 'To the Vietnamese people themselves, [it] is much more than just a glorious heirloom from their literary past,' says Professor Alexander Woodside of the University of British Columbia. 'It has become a kind of continuing emotional laboratory in which all the great and timeless issues of personal morality and political obligation are tested and resolved [. . .] Western readers who are curious about Vietnam and the Vietnamese may well gain more real wisdom from cultivating a discriminating appreciation of this one poem than they will from reading the entire library of scholarly and journalistic writings upon modern Vietnam which has accumulated in the West.'

Book Short Summary:

An epic poem is a performance. The telling of Beowulf carries something of the days of its pre-literary composition, as it evolved as something memorised, half spoken and half sung, over many generations. The single manuscript we have, from about 1000 AD, is the end result of a great chain of poetic adaptation. Of all new versions Seamus Heaneys (1999) has made the most striking impact, in part for his willingness to experiment, to be a new scop or oral poet, to depart at times from the exact text and join the tradition when there was no such thing. The licence such an approach adopts can make for a riveting poem in itself, a work of wonder. But there is a different route to the flame of the original. J.D. Winters rendering of the Beowulf song accepts the text as historical fact, and by a gradual revelation of its deeper music, discovers an illumination from within. The voice is less his and more nearly of the time and world of the poem itself. But this is without recourse to an archaic register. It is the modern language and yet not the modern man speaking. The phrases of the text, like phrases of music with their crescendos and diminuendos, steadily and unhurriedly move towards the culmination of a powerfully fulfilling symphony. It is the expression of a simpler time than ours, and perhaps a more plain-speaking one. Yet its art was at least as sophisticated as the modern worlds. The clarity and concentration of meaning in the brilliantly alliterated half-lines can never be properly reconstructed. But a suggestion of that force and beauty, together with an underlying sense of the inexorable, may always be rediscovered. In the knock and flow of the lines, too, one can sense the poetry of a sea-faring nation. The nation is not England or Sweden or Denmark. It is an intermingled part of Northern Europe using the West Saxon dialect of the language in England to convey a mix of Scandinavian history and Teutonic legend. In this evocative transcreation the reader may come, no doubt as did the early listeners, to a simple truth behind the medley of international borders: the inevitable journey of the universal human.

Book Short Summary:

The Sanctuary or Church of Christ Jesus is our hospital and another throne we come to for dumping our hurts and renewing of our minds. As we come in and as we go out, if we believe the Word of God, we should be excited about what the Word of God reveals about who we are in Him. We should leave Church stronger than before because of what we have been taught, andbelieve Gods Holy message being explained to us. We have to examine the Word of God to know the truth is being taught. (1 John 2:13, 5:4, KJV ref only) Our Pastors should not have to plead for a response to the anointed Word of God during service. I hear pastors/teachers/ministers saying, Come on somebody? Can I get the Church to say amen? Are you all getting the message? Are you all awake? It is dishonorable not to respond with praise to the awesome Word of God. (Hebrews 13:15-17, AMPC ref only) Did you know were doxological? Meaningwe were made to worship the Lord of lords, who is the King of kings, Jesus our Savior, with our expressions in songs, hymns, praises and our lifestyles! We have so many reasons to praise God, and to be thankful as Christ believers. (Isaiah 56:7, AMPC ref only) PRAISE THE LORD! Sing to the Lord a new song, praise Him in the assembly of His saints! Let the high praises of God be in their throats and a two-edged sword in their hands (Psalm 149:1, 6, AMPC)

This is a riveting story of redemption, and a journey to discover truth, love, and purpose. The author has graphically documented her need for healing from the effects of drugs, the occult, and New Age philosophy. She lived in Berkeley during the chaos of social rebellion and drug-induced insanity as a college dropout and former wife of a drug dealer. She also gives us a glimpse of life in the coastal community of Big Sur, where she was miraculously saved in 1972, and which she calls the land of her “second birth.” “When I met Mary and John in 2004 on the mission field, I knew this story needed to be told. The union of a flower child and a warrior in marriage is sure to bring the most dramatic stories. But the beauty of this book comes from the heart of God who continued to prepare, refine, and work by revealing Himself throughout their story. You’re going to love this one!” —Andy Braner, author, speaker, teen advocate, but most of all a curious observer, discovering God’s Beautiful universe

Book Short Summary:

The Psalms are the most popular, most universally loved and used book in the Bible, which in turn is the most popular book in the world. They are hymns, songs, poems and prayers, both formal (liturgical and communal) and informal (spontaneous, personal, and individual); and this gives them many layers of meaning rather than one, unlike theologies and creeds. They Psalms are literally inexhaustible, so a new book of reflections on them is always welcome. Especially a book by the beloved, widely read, best-selling author and philosopher, Peter Kreeft. In this work Kreeft shares his personal explorations into the riches of the Psalms, his profound expeditions into this deep ocean of the divinely inspired spiritual water. He focuses on the dozen or so Psalms that are most people's favorites, including Kreeft. Kreeft says that the Pslams are powerful prayers, and a spiritual weapon that God himself has given us for our great task of spiritual warfare, which is human life on earth. "What prayers did Jesus and his disciples pray? The Psalms! As all Jews have always done ever since they had them. The Psalms are God's answer to our plea,'Teach us to pray.' Christ prayed them not only in synagogue but throughout His life, and at his death. He prayed Psalm 22, 'My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?' even as He was dying on the Cross." - Peter Kreeft, from the Introduction

Book Short Summary:

Psalm 5:3 says, ³At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart. Every emotion of our hearts is reflected in the Psalms with words that express our deepest and strongest feelings. Sighing is turned to singing and trouble into triumph. The Psalms provide comfort and joy, leading us to the place where worship flows. When discouraged or downcast, we can take new strength from reading them. They charge our batteries and fill our sails. Their thunder stirs us, and sweet melodies move us into the sacred emotions of a heart on fire. Dark rain clouds of grief turn to bright rainbows of hope as we meditate on Davids soul subduing songs. The Psalms are clearly poetic. They are praises placed inside poetry that spill out of a fiery passionate heart. The Psalms free us to become emotional, passionate, sincere worshippers. These 150 poetic masterpieces give us an expression of faith and worship. They become a mirror to the heart of Gods people in our quest to experience His presence.

Book Short Summary:

The poems in this volume are mostly Not Like Chocolate. They are not sweet, although some of them arouse appetites without ever really satisfying them completely. They are not often soothing, although some are clearly intended to be funny. Some are best served with red wine, as dark chocolate can be with great impact. Some are light as milk chocolate, and most are more weighty than chocolate should ever be. All are the products of the my memories, dreams, fantasies, and reflections. Like most students of the poetic art, I have had many lives and more than one job and more than one appearance to the world. Even Kafka was a loyal and valued employee. In short, I am a man who has worked for many years on this planet, all the while believing that for me true reality was elsewhere. Despite that delightful handicap, I filled these roles over the years: Lover, Father, Husband, Scholar, Steelworker, Soldier, Spy, Professor, Salesman Buyer, Department Store Manager, Pharmaceutical Sales Representative, Sales Manager, Coach, Entrepreneur, Lead Guitar, Recruiter and more. So why not Poet? My goal in this consuming vocation is not to dazzle with great new revelations, but to arouse in you and in me, the joys of nostalgia and perhaps even inspiration. I hope you take them seriously, and enjoy them as if they were, in fact, just like Chocolate. C.G. Schott
