♥ Book Title : Names for the Sea
☯ Full Synopsis : "Sarah Moss had a childhood dream of moving to Iceland, sustained by a wild summer there when she was nineteen. In 2009, she saw an advertisement for a job at the University of Iceland and applied on a whim, despite having two young children and a comfortable life in Kent. The resulting adventure was shaped by Icelands economic collapse, which halved the value of her salary, by the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull and by a collection of new friends, including a poet who saw the only bombs fall on Iceland in 1943, a woman who speaks to elves and a chef who guided Sarahs family around the intricacies of Icelandic cuisine. Moss explored hillsides of boiling mud and volcanic craters and learned to drive like an Icelander on the unsurfaced roads that link remote farms and fishing villages in the far north. She watched the northern lights and the comings and goings of migratory birds, and as the weeks and months went by, she and her family learned new ways to live. Names for the Sea is her compelling, beautiful and very funny account of living in a country poised on the edge of Europe, where modernization clashes with living folklore."Article| Sarah Moss| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Names of the Sea-Trout
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Names of the Sea-Trout, his last published collection of poems, confirmed Tom Rawling as a spiritual poet. Drawing on his childhood in Cumberland, his passion for trout-fishing and his relationship with his wife, he creates in these poems images that are full of resonances of a bygone era, yet are sharp, immediate and brilliantly luminous. This collection undoubtedly underlined Rawling's reputation as a thoroughly contemporary pastoral poet."Article| Tom Rawling| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Great Sea
☯ Full Synopsis : "Connecting Europe, Asia, and Africa, the Mediterranean Sea has been for millennia the place where religions, economies, and political systems met, clashed, influenced and absorbed one another. In this brilliant and expansive book, David Abulafia offers a fresh perspective by focusing on the sea itself: its practical importance for transport and sustenance; its dynamic role in the rise and fall of empires; and the remarkable cast of characters-sailors, merchants, migrants, pirates, pilgrims-who have crossed and re-crossed it. Ranging from prehistory to the 21st century, The Great Sea is above all a history of human interaction. Interweaving major political and naval developments with the ebb and flow of trade, Abulafia explores how commercial competition in the Mediterranean created both rivalries and partnerships, with merchants acting as intermediaries between cultures, trading goods that were as exotic on one side of the sea as they were commonplace on the other. He stresses the remarkable ability of Mediterranean cultures to uphold the civilizing ideal of convivencia, "living together." Now available in paperback, The Great Sea is the definitive account of perhaps the most vibrant theater of human interaction in history."Article| David Abulafia| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Transformation of Biblical Proper Names
☯ Full Synopsis : "In the transmission we encounter various transformations of biblical proper names. The basic phonetic relationship between Semitic languages on the one hand and non-Semitic languages, like Greek and Latin, on the other hand, is so complex that it was hardly possible to establish a unified tradition in writing biblical proper names within the Greek and Latin cultures. Since the Greek and Latin alphabets are inadequate for transliteration of Semitic languages, authors of Greek and Latin Bibles were utter grammatical and cultural innovators. In Greek and Latin Bibles we note an almost embarrassing number of phonetic variants of proper names. A survey of ancient Greek and Latin Bible translations allows one to trace the boundary between the phonetic transliterations that are justified within Semitic, Greek, and Latin linguistic rules, and those forms that transgress linguistic rules. The forms of biblical proper names are much more stable and consistent in the Hebrew Bible than in Greek, Latin and other ancient Bible translations. The inexhaustible wealth of variant pronunciations of the same proper names in Greek and Latin translations indicate that Greek and Latin translators and copyists were in general not fluent in Hebrew and did therefore not have sufficient support in a living Hebrew phonetic context. This state affects personal names of rare use to a far greater extent than the geographical names, whose forms are expressed in the oral tradition by a larger circle of the population."Article| Joze Krasovec| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Praying The Names of God
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book is a daily devotional book in which you will examine one name of God each day of the year and then pray that name throughout the day. You will also see the definitions of the original Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek words that make up these names. The names all come from the King James Version Bible as do the many quotations that are included to show the proper context in which the name is used. I have attempted to locate every name of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit from Genesis through Revelation. So join me on a one year journey through the Bible. I hope that your journey will be as insightful for you as it was for me."Article| Paul Grams| Statement ..."
