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.

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.
Are you walking in the victory Jesus purchased for you at the cross? Do you want a more intimate relationship with God? Are you willing to do what it takes to remove any obstacles in your spiritual walk? Author, Ginger Schievelbein, uses the basic steps outlined in James 4:7-8 to guide you through the process of healing and deliverance. She uses the gift of discernment of spirits and her ten years of ministry experiences to expand and emphasize the truth of these verses. This book is designed for individual or group study, and will teach you how to have more of God and less of yourself as you come near to Him. Ginger Schievelbein is a first time author who grew up in a typical Christian home. At the age of fifteen, she encountered God and received the gift of discernment of spirits. Since she did not fully understand the gift, she kept it a secret for ten years. Gradually, she began to share some of her spiritual experiences with the adults and children under her ministry. Ten years later, God asked her to step down from those responsibilities so that He could send more people to her for personal prayer and deliverance. This ministry has grown, and recently she became an ordained minister. She and her husband reside in Texas where she homeschools their two teenagers.
