Patrick Miller is widely known as an educator, editor, President of the Society of Biblical Literature, and academic who is concerned to ensure that academics and the life of the church are not torn asunder in this era of fragmentation. This volume honors him for his life's work, presenting 24 essays by students and colleagues on themes dear to Miller: (1) the Psalms and God's nearness to his people, and (2) Torah (Deuteronomy, in particular) and God's connection with his people in their lives together.

The Second Vatican Council says, "We ought to try to discover a new reverence for the Eucharistic mystery. Something is happening that is greater than anything we can do. The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; it is the font from which all her power flows." This profound statement about the Eucharist stands at the center of this book by Cardinal Ratzinger. He compellingly shows us the biblical, historical, and theological dimensions of the Eucharist. The Cardinal draws far-reaching conclusions, focusing on the importance of one's personal devotion to and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, for the personal reception of Communion by the individual Christian, as well as for the life of the Church. For Ratzinger, any transformation of the world on the social plane grows out of the celebration of the Eucharist. He beautifully illustrates how the omnipotent God comes intimately close to us in the Holy Eucharist, the Heart of Life.

The Bible tells one story. It's about how a Holy God deals with a sinful, fallen and broken people. At the center of that story is Jesus. Fellowship was broken in the Garden of Eden but God didn't really go anywhere. The story of "God with us" doesn't begin and end in the Gospels. GOD IS NEAR is his promise to his people, and it's found in every book of the Bible. There should not be a disconnect between the Old Testament and the New. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are actually at work throughout. Much of what God did in bringing Israel out of Egypt and establishing a kingdom is symbolic of the Christian church. Moses is a type of Christ in many different ways. The tabernacle, veil of separation, lamb of sacrifice and office of the High Priest are all meant to help New Testament believers understand who Christ is and what he does. God is Near: His Promise to His People does more than analyze the relationship of the books of the Bible. Beginning in the Garden of Eden we embark on a journey through God's Word, exploring the relationship between God and his chosen people. God is holy and only what is holy can come into his presence. But he has always been close! God spoke to Moses from the burning bush, appeared to the Hebrews in pillars of fire and cloud, and radiated his visible presence above the tabernacle. At Sinai his people saw him descend on the mountain and heard his voice, and at Jericho they obediently watched as he won their battles for them. God was in the manger at Bethlehem and on the cross at Calvary. He filled the upper room in Acts 2 and the hearts of 3,000 believers who repented and were baptized that same day. God's Holy Spirit dwells today in the heart of every believer. He is not waiting for us in some darkened church sanctuary; just as Jesus said he must be about his Father's business so must his children today. The Kingdom of God was at hand in Jesus' day and the people of his Kingdom today are sharing the Gospel, giving out food, digging wells
Rigley had Annabelle's heart as soon as he jumped into her lap and kissed her on the nose. This adorable bunny brings the story behind the story of the redbird. God Is Near engages the imagination with a charming story showing how God speaks His message of love through His creation. Using signs and wonders, God teaches children that He walks with them through sadness, loneliness, or whatever life brings their way. He shows how He hears and answers prayers, but most of all, He assures children that they will never be alone because He is always near.
Ian Cooper argues that a major strand in the development of modern poetry in German and English can be seen as a protracted response to the religious crises of post-Idealist thought. The German tradition develops through poets such as Holderlin as much as through philosophers such as Hegel and Nietzsche, and in England German ideas profoundly influenced the British Idealist school. This study makes parallel readings of German and English writers, showing that their affinities are deeper and more historically-based than has previously been realized. Eduard Morike and Gerard Manley Hopkins, both churchmen, each encountered Idealism as students in their respective countries: each responded to it in his spiritual verse. And we find similar parallels in two of the defining works of twentieth-century poetry: Rilke's Duino Elegies and Eliot's Four Quarters.
Green traces these motifs through the Mesopotamian, Anatolian, Syrian, and Levantine regions; he argues that, in the end, Yahweh of the Bible can be identified as a storm-god, though certain unique characteristics came to be associated with him: he was the creator of all that is created and the self-existing god who needs no other."--BOOK JACKET.
