Price: $50.00
In late 1845 Soren Kierkegaard began a literary duel with the satiric Danish review The Corsair that had momentous effects on his life and work. Three of the articles included in this commentary address Kierkegaard’s relation to the press. One is an expository article written within the terms of Kierkegaard’s own views, while two others place the affair in the context of a Marxist critique of modern media. Two papers address the issue of the comic. One essay attempts to sort through the interpersonal relationships. Finally, two articles treat matters not related to the Corsair Affair but to other newspaper articles published in the volume.

Author and environmental activist Terry Tempest Williams argues that a lack of connection to the land is the direct result of our failure to care intimately about one another. From PIECES OF WHITE SHELL: A JOURNEY TO NAVAJOLAND (1984) to WHEN WOMEN WERE BIRDS: FIFTY-FOUR VARIATIONS ON VOICE (2012), her writing is born in the red-hot fires of contradiction. A Mormon and a believer in the power of women, an activist and a solitary writer, a student of science and a woman of faith, Williams celebrates paradox and lives both on the page and in the world.

To See the Promised Land: The Faith Pilgrimage of Martin Luther King, Jr.
By author: Downing
Product Code: H189
ISBN: 9780865542075
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: Not currently available. (Backorder policy)
Price: $35.00
In this study Frederick L. Downing sets out to tell the story of the pilgrimage of faith that led martin Luther King, Jr., to Memphis and martyrdom. Drawing on his extensive researching primary documents from the Martin Luther King Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta and the king Collection at Boston University, Professor Downing argues that Dr. King understood himself first as “a Baptist preacher” whose religious faith was so real and “closely knit to life” that he could not separate his life from his faith. Religion fro Dr. King was life, Professor Downing insists, reinforcing his research and his conclusions with the psychosocial theories of Erik Erikson and the categories for tracing the development of religious faith proposed by James Fowler. Professor Downing’s moving portrait of Martin Luther King as homo religious in twentieth-century America will endure as a testimony to the transforming power of religion in human experience. Biographers have investigated and celebrated Dr. King’s activities and accomplishments as a leader and spokesman for civil rights, world peace, and the eradication of hunger and poverty. Others have attempted, as intellectual historians, to trace the development of Dr. King’s thought. These are worthy endeavors. Yet Dr. King was more than a politician and political strategists, more than a philosopher and intellectual reformer. He was a preacher and, in that self-defined role, a prophet on a pilgrimage of faith.
