‘Saints are people of unearthly beauty who show us a deep understanding of the fluid nature of divine grace.’ This warm-hearted book is for those of us who enter Advent longing for spiritual sustenance to balance the worldly charms of the Christmas season. Jesus’ arrival in poverty and vulnerability provoked feelings of unease as well as expectation and hope . . . How will we keep the faith as Christians called to live distinctively in an age of anxiety? Magdalen Smith believes we can be inspired by people from the past – those whose names are familiar or less so – whom the Church calls ‘saints’. In these wide-ranging devotions, full of contemporary stories and enjoyable cultural allusions, she introduces 24 characters who manifest a mysterious dynamic . . . and enable us to glimpse holiness in a new way. ‘With heartfelt honesty, clarity and humanity, Magdalen Smith challenges the Church to see the journey ahead with new eyes. This book is a timely prophetic call to be refreshed by our inheritance in ways that renew integrity and hope.’ Libby Lane, Bishop of Stockport ‘A treasure chest of gems.’ Jill Duff, Director of St Mellitus North West training course

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Emily Brontë: Sturmhöhe (Wuthering Heights) • Entspricht rund 400 Buchseiten • Neu editiert, mit aktualisierter Rechtschreibung, ohne den Charakter des Textes zu verfälschen • Voll verlinkt, und mit zusätzlichem Hypertext- Inhaltsverzeichnis • Mit einem Stammbaum der Earnshaws und Lintons, sowie einer Timeline mit den Lebensdaten der Hauptpersonen – angefertigt vom britischen Brontë-Experten Paul Thompson »Sturmhöhe« gehört zu den großen epischen Familienerzählungen, und ist in eine Reihe mit »Vom Winde verweht« oder »Doktor Schiwago« zu stellen. Die Geschichte ist so bewegend, weil sie – wie jeder dieser großen Romane – archaische menschliche Gefühle zur Triebfeder macht: Liebe, Hass, Schmerz, Sehnsucht, Ehrgeiz, Stolz. – In »Dr. Schiwago« ist es die Liebe, in »Vom Winde verweht«, sind es Sehnsucht und Stolz, doch in »Sturmhöhe« ist es das zerstörerischste aller Gefühle, der Hass. Shakespeare ́sche Züge, sagten Kritiker, habe der Roman, andere fühlen sich an die griechische Tragödie erinnert. In jedem Fall ist es ein ganz großer Wurf, der der jungen Emily Brontë (1818–1848), der literarisch bedeutsamsten der drei hochbegabten Brontë-Schwestern, hier gelang. ---- eClassica – Die Buchreihe, die Klassiker neu belebt.
