ABRAHAM'S BIND & OTHER BIBLE TALES OF TRICKERYby Michael J. Caduto
ABRAHAM'S BIND & OTHER BIBLE TALES OF TRICKERY
by Michael J. Caduto
 
6 x 9 224 pp, Hardcover
New retellings of episodes in the lives of familiar biblical characters explore relevant life lessons for today’s world.
Abraham and Sarah; Jacob and Esau; Joseph with his coat of many colors—these biblical characters and the stories surrounding their lives may be ancient, yet they continue to yield surprisingly fresh and relevant spiritual lessons for life in the modern world.
With insight, thoughtfulness and wit, Caduto re-imagines these characters and many more, retelling their stories and highlighting their foibles and strengths, their struggles and joys. Readers will learn that God has a way of working for them and through them even today, even when life seems less than perfect:
• Barren and despairing Sarah becomes pregnant—learning that nothing is impossible.
• Jacob the trickster is, in turn, tricked into marrying the wrong wife—learning that what goes around comes around.
• Joseph is sold into slavery by his brothers, only to rise to wield the power of life and death over them—learning that patience and integrity will win out in the end.
Provocative and entertaining, these retellings offer readers the chance to discover these ancient biblical stories—and themselves—anew.
Michael J. Caduto, winner of the Aesop Prize and other awards, is a storyteller and author of fifteen books including In the Beginning: The Story of Genesis and Earth Activities for Children.

Writing in the SandJesus and the Soul of the Gospels
Writing in the Sand
Jesus and the Soul of the Gospels
 
Thomas Moore

In his latest book, Writing in the Sand, Thomas Moore finds striking new meaning in the rich stories and imagery of the Gospels, recasting Jesus not as a teacher of morals and beliefs but as a spiritual visionary with a radical vision for humanity. This highly original take on the Gospels offers a fresh, new way of imagining human life and society. It presents Jesus not as the founder of a religion but as a world reformer offering a spiritual path to everyone, from every background. It offers a personal spirituality fit for the twenty-first century, where the individual bears responsibility for meaning and for a creative, convivial way of life.

In his examination of the original Greek texts, Moore dismisses the cautionary voice of tradition and explores the deeper significance of language, stressing the origins of words and the many levels of meaning in stories and imagery. Through his study, Moore shows that the teachings of Jesus are challenging in a far different way than the moralism often associated with them. Based on being open to life, deepening your understanding, and giving up all defensiveness around your convictions, the Gospels can be the source of a new kind of certainty and stability that cannot be codified and enshrined in a list of rules. Writing in the Sand presents the essence of Jesus’ teachings and offers a way of understanding them intelligently and devotedly in the twenty-first century.
