The Fall of General Custard brings to life a playful world inside of a refrigerator. When the cherries are "foodnapped” by the greedy General Custard, a full-on food fight breaks out. "It was Custard’s fierce forces that fired food first. A fat fudge sauce bomb landed loudly and burst.” And in the meantime: "Salamis and sausages, made in New York, Tossed the poor salad with help from the pork.” When conflict and division enter the normally peaceful world of the "Fridge,” the story speaks to important themes and challenges that children frequently encounter in their own lives: cooperation vs. conflict and personal choices about right and wrong. The heroine (a brave maraschino cherry named Rosaline) and the hero (a faithful Olive named Romeo) take risks for what they believe is right and shine a light of understanding so that other foods can see the wisdom of choosing cooperation and peacemaking over the fear and conflict. This rhyming story, full of humor, wordplay, and wildly and delightfully detailed illustrations, stands on its own as pure entertainment. It's also a launching point for thoughtful discussions with children about conflict and cooperation, as well as standing for what you believe is right.

Philosophy of Religion for a New Century represents the work of nineteen scholars presented at a conference in honor of Eugene T. Long at the University of South Carolina, April 5-6, 2002. This volume is a good example of philosophy in dialogue; there is both respect and genuine disagreement. First, an account of our present situation in the Philosophy of Religion is given, leading to a discussion of the very idea of a 'Christian Philosophy' and the coherence of the traditional concept of God. The implications of science and a concern for the environment in our concepts of God are carefully examined. A discussion follows on the possibility of speech about God and silence about God. Since much of modern European philosophy is concerned with the `Death of God' theme, the positions of Nietzsche and some of his twentieth-century interpreters are presented. There are presentations on Feminist Approaches to Philosophy of Religion, and Comparative Religion is examined in relation to cultures and the demands of rationality. The volume concludes with a critical dialogue on the relation of Religious Discourse to the Public Sphere. Developing global awareness has led to significant change in the Philosophy of Religion. One-dimensional approaches have given way to honest dialogue. The traditional boundaries between the secular and the religious have shifted, and new approaches to traditional problems are required. This volume presents examples of these new approaches.

Cat’s Cradle (1963) is Vonnegut’s most ambitious novel, which put into the language terms like “wampeter”, “kerass” and “granfalloon” as well as a structured religion, Boskonism and was submitted in partial fulfillment of requirements for a Master’s Degree in anthropology, and in its sprawling compass and almost uncontrolled (and uncontrollable) invention, may be Vonnegut’s best novel. Written contemporaneously with the Cuban missile crisis and countenancing a version of a world in the grasp of magnified human stupidity, the novel is centered on Felix Hoenikker, a chemical scientist reminiscent of Robert Oppenheimer... except that Oppenheimer was destroyed by his conscience and Hoenikker, delighting in the disastrous chemicals he has invented, has no conscience at all. Hoenikker’s “Ice 9” has the potential to convert all liquid to inert ice and thus destroy human existence; he is exiled to a remote island where Boskonism has enlisted all of its inhabitants and where religion and technology collaborate, with the help of a large cast of characters, to destroy civilization. Vonnegut’s compassion and despair are expressed here through his grotesque elaboration of character and situation and also through his created religion which like Flannery O’Connor’s “Church Without Christ” (in Wise Blood) acts to serve its adherents by removing them from individual responsibility. Vonnegut had always been taken seriously by science fiction readers and critics (a reception which indeed made him uncomfortable) but it was with Cat’s Cradle that he began to be found and appreciated by a more general audience. His own ambivalence toward science, science fiction, religion and religious comfort comes through in every scene of this novel.

Roar Rule Laugh Create Destroy Love ...And lay claim to your true masculine nature and spiritual heritage. According to Dagonet Dewr, a writer and activist in the men's pagan spirituality movement: "We have forgotten how to cry, to scream, to hunt, to love, to honor, to teach, to initiate." Hip, funny, and direct, this pagan belief guide explores twelve powerful male archetypes and their relevance for men today: Divine Child, Lover, Warrior, Trickster, Green Man, Guide, Craftsman, Magician, Destroyer, King, Healer, and Sacrificed One. Stories of characters from mythology, fantasy, and pop culture illustrate different expressions of masculine energy. With pagan rituals and magickal workings, this pagan book offers a visceral, hands-on way to connect with archetypal energies and honor male rites of passage such as coming of age, seeking a partner in love, or becoming a father.

Readers of The Gift will find themselves entering into the world of a classic saga of good versus evil. Along the way they will pass through the lands of Elfin Haven Castle, Land of Lakes, Mound-Hill and the Vandalman Land of Nordland. They will meet the family of beautiful Queen Heather, her brave daughter Anree, the fairy Cieli and Heather's brother-in-law Kris von Krinkle. There are heroic quests, supreme destinies and ferocious battles with characters as diverse as Colestream Cardinals, Bull Reindeer warriors and stinking, demonic Slavers. Set in a time when elves and fairies, plants and animals interacted with all manner of human-kind, this story proceeds to offer an inspiring explanation for some of the most beloved stories and beliefs held by that world and our own. A frozen landscape is the setting for great battles between the spirits of Hope and Despair, and the evergreen trees, which retain their beauty even in the coldest of times, hold the promise of an inspiring Christmas story. Bill Craig has used his knowledge of military strategy and weaponry, and his love of the details of everyday life from a bygone era to craft this tale. Within the pages of The Gift hope will be renewed in the lives of its characters and perhaps in the hearts of its readers as well.
