New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky has written her most complex and emotionally rewarding novel yet: a story of two women, a generation apart, each of whose dream becomes bound with the other's. To her family, Natalie Seebring is a woman who prizes appearances: exquisitely mannered, a supportive wife, and head of a successful wine-producing enterprise. So when she announces plans to marry a vineyard employee mere months after the death of her husband of fifty-eight years, her son and daughter are stunned. Faced with their disapproval, Natalie decides to write a memoir. Olivia Jones is a dreamer, living vicariously through the old photographs she restores. She and her daughter, Tess, cling to the fantasy that a big, happy family is out there just waiting for them. When Natalie hires Olivia to help with her memoir, a summer at Natalie's vineyard by the sea seems the perfect opportunity to live out that fantasy. But all is not as it seems. As the illusion of an idyllic existence comes crashing headlong into reality, the lives of these two women, parallel in so many ways, become a powerful and moving story.

John S. Kloppenborg gives a detailed analysis of one of the most difficult of Jesus' parables, the parable of the Tenants (Mark 12:1-12; Gospel of Thomas 65). He examines the ways in which Christians have typically read and mis-read the parable, and places the parable firmly in the context of the practices of ancient viticulture. The author models a new approach to the interpretation of the parables of Jesus. First, he critically engages the history of interpretation of the text, inquiring into the ideological interests that the parable has engaged during the history of its use in Christian churches and in political discourse. Second, he reconstructs the social world in which the parable was first told, in particular the economic, social, and legal aspects of ancient viticulture. He demonstrates that the parable of the Tenants has mostly been interpreted from the standpoint of those who wield social and political power, a strange irony considering the social status of the Jesus of history and the literary uses of the parable. All of the features common to the parable as it is told by Mark and the Gospel of Thomas make it a perfectly realistic story. It is only Mark's editing of the story that takes it beyond the realistic idiom characteristic of Jesus' other parables. The book concludes with a dossier of 58 papyrus documents relating to various aspects of viticulture and agrarian conflict. It was awarded the 2007 Francis W. Beare Book Award by the Canadian Society of Biblical Studies.

"This book is unprecedented in the field in its approach and content. . . . A must for the serious student in African American studies."--Delores P. Aldridge, Emory University The emergence of African American studies in the 1970s filled a critical gap in higher education. Now a prominent scholar who has helped to define the contours of that field integrates personal reflection with an analysis of its development to recount the political, cultural, and intellectual issues that helped shape the discipline. A participant in the Black Student Movement in its early years, Perry A. Hall provides an insider's look at the struggle to persuade academia to accept the mission of Black Studies and the struggle inside the movement to define its objectives. He examines how the discipline evolved within the context of the wider social revolution changing the face of America, showing how the presence of blacks on campuses brought about the need for new perspectives in college curricula. And because African American Studies today represents a variety of approaches, he examines how they evolved and how they interact both within the field and with other areas of knowledge. Hall critiques the popular "Afrocentric" approach in African American Studies, arguing that it is not synonymous with the discipline overall. He develops an alternative "transformationist" paradigm that builds on the idea of double-consciousness advanced by W. E. B. Du Bois and shows how it can be used to sort out conceptions of black identity that have emerged from sociology and psychology. He explores the importance of vernacular culture--especially popular music--in creating unique frames of reference for African Americans and also applies his paradigm to education and public policy analysis. An important intellectual autobiography, Hall's work shows how insights gleaned over thirty years can be applied in the vineyards of academia today. Its message speaks clearly to scholars of his own generation and today's, and shows how African American Studies can continue to be relevant in the next century. The Author: Perry A. Hall is associate professor of African and Afro-American Studies at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and a former member of the executive board of the National Council for Black Studies. His articles have appeared in Western Journal of Black Studies, Word: A Black Culture Journal, Journal of Negro Education, and the Black Studies Handbook.

It's no secret that just about everyone today realizes that we are now living in the last of the last days. What Christ proclaimed in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 is coming to pass!Christ gave warning that the period of time known as day, when the works of the Father could be done, would then be followed by night, when no man could work.1000 years are as a day to the Lord and a day as 1000 years. Therefore might we not deduce that 41.7 years are as an hour and .7 years as a minute? Twilight lasts an average of forty minutes in the natural, therefore Twilight in Gods Spiritual Day would be 28 years. We are now well into this time of spiritual twilight and TWILIGHT IN THE VINEYARD proclaims the lateness of the hour and gives warning of how little time is left before the Tribulation begins."And when all things shall be subdued unto Him, then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him, that Yahweh may be all in all." I Cor.15:28 The above verse states the eternal PURPOSE of Yahweh. It is to this end that we should be striving. Thus I have been led to write this book:1. To warn His adopted children who make up the Body of Christ that His return is near2. To state the truth about the nation of Israel and encourage our Jewish brethren to realize that Yahshua is their Messiah (Mashiach) 3. To warn America and other nations that they need to repent and humble them selves before The Almighty Creator4. To explain why America and Britain are allies of Israel5. To inform His dispersed, chosen children of the House of Israel that they will soon be undergoing terrible times during that period referred to as Jacobs trouble but to realize their heritage and know that He will help them.6. To give information on topics that has often been ignored or misunderstood.CAN YOU ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS?Why is the story of JOSEPH so relevant for today?When will the tribulation will begin?Who will really make up the 144,000 and where will they be found?What is the Gospel of the Kingdom?When and where will Christ return?Who is the Mahdi?What is the difference between Satan's angels and his demons?What happened between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2?Why should we know about Nimrod, Semiramis and Tammuz?Why is America under Yahweh's judgement?Was Eve really created from only a rib of Adam?Who is the one who restrains the coming of the antichrist?Who is the woman in the 12th Chapter of Revelation?Will persecution be vented upon American Christians?What is the importance of the Feast Days of the Lord?Did Christ really die on Friday and rise up on Sunday?What did Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah do?Why is the story of Joseph and his sons significant...especially for us today!Why is Babylon mentioned so often in scripture?To find the answers to these questions and to learn more on many other topics, I urge you to read this book...which was ordained to be written by Yahweh in 1983 at which time He gave this author its title.TWILIGHT IN THE VINEYARD is an anthology and includes the following topics:Name of the Almighty Creator - YHWH, Creator of the Spiritual Realm - YHWH, Creator of Man - YHWH, the Planter - America, Past, Present?ǪFuture? - America, Wake Up! - Babylon - Gospel of the Kingdom - Kingdom of Darkness - The One Who Restrains - Present Day Vineyard of the Lord - The Antichrist - Coming Persecution - Words and Dreams From the Lord - Words from the Heart - To All My True Brothers and Sisters in Our LordPsalm 26:7 "That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Thy wondrous works."Shalom, JoJean

Every life holds times of happiness, but also times of disappointment and confusion. We feel pressure from all sides and wonder if God is really there. We call out to God, wanting to know the purpose and value of the season in which we find ourselves. With her wise counsel and gentle encouragement, bestselling author Pamela Reeve leads readers to see the often unrecognized miracle that God is working in our lives to bring about spiritual growth. Drawing from John 15, she reveals the secret to true and lasting peace in the midst of routine or change, in gladness or extreme sorrow. Lush vineyard photographs beautifully illustrate how God lovingly prunes us to bear the fruit of Christ living within us. A Vineyard in the Desert? It doesn't make sense. Why would the Master Gardner plant His tender vines in a hostile place where searing sun, nameless blights, and biting pests descend to consume the maturing grapes? Why would He cut back those vines so severely, exposing them to merciless heat? Because the sweetest, most bountiful harvest of fruit will burst from thise very vines, so carefully tended by a wise heart and loving hands. Within these pages of this stunningly beautiful book, Pam Reeve shows how our Lord brings hope and sweet new wine from the very pressure, sorrows, and dissappointments that encroah upon the seasons of our lives. Story Behind the Book An encounter with a desert vineyard in her youth led Dr. Reeve to a lifelong interest in vines and vineyards. In talks to college students and women’s groups around the country, she uses magnificent slides and a gentle message of courage and hope to the overwhelmed, the discouraged, and those enduring difficult seasons in their lives. This book will inspire readers to depend on Christ living within them to produce His character within and fruit through them. It is not our own religious efforts, but Christ living within us, that promotes spiritual growth. From the Hardcover edition.
