Sachsen im Jahre 772: Seit vielen Jahren sind die altgläubigen Sachsen dem mächtigen Frankenkönig Karl ein Dorn im Auge und er plant, die unberechenbaren und widerspenstigen Heiden zum Christentum zu bekehren, um sie endgültig in sein Reich einzugliedern. Die Sippe von Theodard, freie Sachsen, nimmt einen fremden Jungen auf, den sie in den Wäldern vor einem gewaltsamen Tod bewahrte. Doch nicht alle Sippenmitglieder sind damit einverstanden. Sind seine Augen nicht schwarz wie Kohlen? Kann er nicht in der Dunkelheit sehen? Und warum spricht er nicht? Als sich die junge Sarhild für den Fremden zu interessieren beginnt, kommt es zur Katastrophe, die die ganze Sippe in ihren Grundfesten erschüttern wird. Währenddessen bahnt sich ein Krieg gegen die Franken an. »Michael J. Awe führt seine Leser mit viel sprachlichem Geschick ins Mittelalter, wo sich die Sachsen gegen ihre Christianisierung sträuben.« – bestbookfinder.de

The Delights and Dangers of Our Eleventh Emotion

The first book to explore the enigmatic emotion of AWE, based on the only-known study of its connection to the meaning of life 'Feeling suddenly elevated to the limits of indescribable delight, yet teetering on the edge of fear, we experience our rarest, most powerful, and least understood emotion: awe. It's an overwhelming and life-altering blend of fright and fascination that leaves us in a state of puzzled apprehension and appreciative perplexed wonder. If we go beyond a kind of ignorant distant voyeurism through which we gawk at life rather than fully engage with it and put in the effort to try to understand a little more about life's meaning, awe becomes less a feeling of being high and more a feeling of deep immersion in any and all of life's processes, including health, illness, love, and even death. It may not cause us to come to believe in something, but it can cause us to believe that there is something more beyond the grasp of our limited human consciousness. It can turn our stress into motivation for growth, solidify our commitment to our families as systems that can experience collective awe together, and help us find meaning, comprehensibility, and manageability at times of our most profound losses and even our own death.' —from Awe: The Delights and Dangers of Our Eleventh Emotion Lyrical, eye-opening, and highly perceptive with unexpected twists and turns as grand as awe itself, Awe is an invitation to leave our states of languishing and to flourish; however, the choice is ultimately yours as to what to do with your eleventh emotion, its delights and dangers, and what you choose to make of it.

On New Year's Day 1959, as Fidel Castro seized power in Cuba, Alejandra San José was born in Havana, entering the world through the heart of revolution. Fearing the conflict and strife that bubbled up in the streets all around the new family, her parents took Ale and fled to the free shores of America. Ale grew up in Chicago amid a close community of refugees who lived with the hope that one day Castro would fall and they could return to their Cuban homes. Though Ale was intrigued by the specter of Havana that colored her life as a child, her fascination eventually faded in her teens until all that remained was her profound respect for the intricacies of the Spanish language and the beautiful work her father did as a linguist and translator. When her own job as an interpreter takes her back to Cuba, Ale is initially unmoved at the import of her return-- until she stumbles upon a surprising truth: the San Josés, ostensibly Catholics, are actually Jews. They are conversos who converted to Christianity during the Spanish Inquisition. Enlightened by a whole new vision of her past and her culture, Ale makes her way back through San José history, uncovering new fragments of truth about the relatives who struggled with their own identities so long ago. Ale is finally lured back to Cuba to make amends with the ancestral demons still lurking there--to translate her father's troubling youthful experiences into the healing language of her Cuban American heart. In beautiful, knowing prose, Achy Obejas opens up a fascinating world of exotic wordplay, rich history, and vibrant emotions. As Alejandra struggles to confront what it is to be Cuban and American, Catholic and Jewish, Obejas illuminates her journey and the tempestuous history of Cuba with intelligence and affection. Days of Awe is a lyrical and lovely novel from an author destined for literary renown. From the Hardcover edition.

Why do we do religion? Religion appears in human life because every human being, even if not fully aware of it, lives in a land of mystery with rushing rivers of freedom, imposing mountains of care, and wild seas of tranquility. This land of mystery penetrates the land of ordinary living at every point. Awe is our experience of this ever-present Eternity. This book is about how the Awe that is happening in our everyday lives is key to understanding both the renewal of Christianity and the need for non-bigoted dialogue among all religions on Earth.

Awakening to Awe is a self-help meditation on an alternative—and growing—spiritual movement. This is a movement comprised of people who refuse the "quick-fix" model for healing, whether that model entails popping pills, indulging in material comforts, or adhering to doctrinal dogmas. By contrast, the movement about which Schneider writes is composed of people who have developed the capacity to experience the humility and wonder, or in short, awe, of life deeply lived. In particular, this book highlights the stories of people who through the cultivation of awe have transformed their lives. For example, readers will discover how awe transformed the life of an ex-gang member into a beloved and productive gang mediator, an ex-drug addict into a communally conscious healer, and a sufferer of stage three cancer into a contemplative and spiritual seeker. The book will also inform readers about the challenges and joys of awe-based child-raising, education, humor, political activism, and aging. Drawing on the philosophy of Schneider's earlier work, the acclaimed Rediscovery of Awe, Awakening to Awe tells the down-to-earth stories of a quiet yet emerging revolution in the transformation of lives.

Peter Havholm blends knowledge of political battles in 1880s British India with close readings of well-known works like 'The Man Who Would Be King', 'Kim', and 'The Light That Failed' to connect Rudyard Kipling's continuing popularity with his youthful discovery that British India could be fictionalized as wondrous. Havholm's reading both acknowledges Kipling's artistic achievement and illuminates the continuing allure of the imperialist fantasy.

Washington Post Best Books of 2005. Philadelphia Inquirer Top 10 Fiction Pick, Fall 2005 At age 67, Artie Rubin finds his world shaken to its foundation by events he cannot control. His tale his both universal and unique; it is the story of the end of things and their beginnings, of friends and family, of connections lost and of the endurance of love. The Days of Awe is a breathtaking call to living. "[Nissenson] more than holds his own in the arena of gritty, all-too-present-day realism, brilliantly conveying his characters' anxiety and suffering, their conflicting ideas,emotions and beliefs, and the love for one another that makes them so vulnerable but also lends enduring value to their menaced lives."-Wall Street Journal "Solid character writing and attention to the details of daily life make the September 11 material well motivated; as characters continue to worry, kibitz, philosophize and complain, one feels that they have a real sense of the stakes."-Publishers Weekly "A moving, thought-provoking exploration of coming to grips with mortality."-Booklist "I just finished The Days of Awe. I am too moved to move. (Even this pen.) An amazing novel. It is as if we are eavesdropping on life." -Cynthia Ozick
