"Generous and entertaining." -Publishers Weekly (starred review) Finalist for the PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay From the #1 New York Times bestselling author and columnist comes a "fiercely funny, powerfully smart, and remarkably brave" (Cheryl Strayed) collection of heartwarming personal essays "as wonderful as her fiction" (Mindy Kaling) that "will enthusiastically reach out to readers and swiftly draw them close" (Publishers Weekly , starred review). Jennifer Weiner is many things: a bestselling author, a Twitter phenomenon, and an "unlikely feminist enforcer" (The New Yorker ). She's also a mom, a daughter, and a sister, a clumsy yogini, and a reality-TV devotee. In this "unflinching look at her own experiences" (Entertainment Weekly ), Jennifer fashions tales of modern-day womanhood as uproariously funny and moving as the best of Nora Ephron and Tina Fey. No subject is off-limits in these intimate and honest essays: sex, weight, envy, money, her mother's coming out of the closet, her estranged father's death. From lonely adolescence to hearing her six-year-old daughter say the F word-fat-for the first time, Jen dives into the heart of female experience, with the wit and candor that have endeared her to fans all over the world.

Hungry Heart is filled with the honest searching of a girl's coming of age and beyond, looking for love and acceptance. At times the journey to adulthood is seen through revealing journal entries and poetry; at other times it sounds the desperate inborn cry of the human heart from infancy to adulthood-the need to be loved and cherished. Hungry Heart tells the story of the search for love through food, men, more food, more men, and finally finding the hunger quenched by the greatest love of all. "What I remember most about Lorene is that she always had a smile on her face no matter what the situation was. It was hard to tell if she was on top of the world or hurting terribly inside. She was never unkind to anyone, even those that didn't treat her well. I truly believe she has a spirit that can't be broken. I know there was a lot of pain in those days but she never let it totally defeat her. It is very evident now that she has raised above all that to become very successful and works tirelessly to inspire others." - Mark Perkins, Director of Bands and Technology, Scranton High School, Scranton, North Dakota.

Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart is about words, most particularly it is a book about the Word, the living Word of God, found in the Scriptures, and embodied once and for all in the person of Jesus, the Word made flesh. In Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart Fr. James Wallace offers a nuanced consideration of the homily as nourishment. He focuses on three common liturgical contexts: feasts of the Lord, feasts of Mary and the saints, and the sacramental rites. He relates the preaching that occurs within each area to one of the heart?s basic hungers: for wholeness (the great feasts of the Lord), for guidance (feasts of Mary and the saints), and for meaning (various rites). He also addresses the spirituality of the preacher as it is worked out in the process of preparation. For preachers and students in schools of ministry who are preparing to preach Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart will serve as a useful tool to help satisfy the hunger to preach the Gospel. It includes homilies that provide excellent starting points for preachers looking for ideas. Chapter one considers the image of feeding God?s people with the Word of God. Chapter two, considering the innermost hunger of the human person, looks to the preaching that takes place on the great feasts of the Lord and how such preaching can nourish the hunger for wholeness. Chapter three returns to the hunger for meaning already mentioned and extends to the other sacramental celebrations the homily?s capacity to meet this hunger, including those addressed by the various sacramental celebrations of the Church such as baptisms, wedding, funerals, rites of reconciliation, and anointing of the sick. Chapters four and five present the homily as responding to the hunger to belong. The final chapter considers one other hunger of the heart, unique to the preacher, referred to by John Paul II as a ?hunger to preach the gospel? (Pastores Dabo Vobis, no. 28). Chapters are ?Preaching?s Task in a New Millennium: Feeding God?s People,? ?Preaching the Feasts of the Lord and the Hunger for Wholeness,? ?Preaching Within the Sacramental Rites and the Hunger for Meaning,? ?Preaching Through the Saints and the Hunger for Belonging: I?The Saints,? ?Preaching Through the Saints and the Hunger for Belonging: II?Mary,? and ?Cultivating the Preacher?s Hunger: ?To Make the Gospel Known and Loved.???Wallace guides preachers in linking their sermons to the festal, pastoral, and sanctoral calendar ...? Theology Today?... covers areas of preaching that can also be done by lay preachers, it is useful to both the ordained and lay Catholic preacher. And if you are not a preacher, this book will help you become a more attentive listener to the scriptures and more receptive worshiper at liturgical celebrations.? Worship?Our world hungers and thirsts for the living Word of God that gives life and hope. Father Wallace invites, no charges, preachers to explore the essential role they are to play in feeding God?s people. While written primarily for a Roman Catholic audience, his insights will feed a much wider audience.? Lucy Hogan Professor of Preaching and Worship Wesley Theological Seminary Washington, D.C.?Imagine a caterer overwhelmed by trying to feed too much hunger in too many banquets. Parish priests feel similarly daunted attempting to preach to multiple spiritual need in multiple feasts. James Wallace, writing from both his homiletical expertise and pastor?s heart, shows committed preachers how to serve the kind of homiletical fare at the Church?s feasts that nourishes basic hunger for wholeness, meaning, and belonging. In answering a crying need in pulpit and pew, Wallace beautifully combines his gifts for insight, clarity, and creativity.? Don M. Wardlaw Professor Emeritus of Preaching and Worship McCormick Theological Seminary Chicago?The book is an invaluable and long overdue resource for Catholic preachers and teachers of preachers. I will certainly be requiring it of my students. Instead of a bag of superficial tricks and gimmicks, the book provides preachers with a deep understanding of the several liturgical preaching occasions the book addresses. The work is thorough, thoughtful and theological yet clear, practical, and pastoral. The author?s love of preaching and his deep respect for the various special occasion liturgies are evident on every page. I found the last chapter?s concern for the ongoing need for preachers to remain alive to their preaching right on target. The four ?loves? the author lists as necessary to sustain preachers stand as warning and remedy for weary preachers.? Richard C. Stern, Ed.D. Associate Professor of Homiletics Saint Meinrad School of Theology ?Rarely have I read a book on preaching that is so rich, informative, encouraging, practical. Fresh ideas, vivid imagination, familiarity with contemporary literature, stories, playing with metaphors, excursions into history?it?s genuinely breathtaking. And his concluding exhortation: cultivate love for words, for Scripture, for people, for Jesus Christ?my heart was on fire.? Walter J. Burghardt, S.J.[short ad copy]In Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart Father James Wallace offers a nuanced consideration of the homily as nourishment.

Of all veteran rock and roll stars, Bruce Springsteen has perhaps most been able to retain a special, reciprocal relationship with his following, a connection which transcends fanaticism and goes beyond that of mere fan to artist. For over a quarter century, Springsteen has never changed his belief that his music should at least attempt to offer something tangible and meaningful to the listener. Hungry Heart: The Music of Bruce Springsteen explains the reasons for Springsteen's unique relationship with his fans, the mutual feeling that the other is "one of us." As the title suggests, the emphasis is on Springsteen's music, whether heard on recordings or in concert. While enough historical data is included to ensure narrative flow and provide background information relevant to his music, the book is not intended as a biography. Instead it's an in-depth, critical study of Springsteen's entire recorded output as heard over sixteen albums, plus assorted singles, film songs and one-offs. Besides official releases, the book will also discuss the more generally well-known of his unreleased songs. There is also a chapter on cover versions of Springsteen's songs as recorded by other artists, including renditions of cuts Bruce has recorded, tracks he never released himself and songs he expressly wrote for or with another performer. Hungry Heart: The Music of Bruce Springsteen is written with passion, humor and insight, from a fan's perspective but with a critical eye. It is a book to be enjoyed by both hard-core and casual Springsteen enthusiasts, and one to be referred to time and time again.

Hungry Heart Roaming meanders between two 'in-between' places. It leaves one beach at the turn of the tide, and a young boy with his grandmother, and ends with a grandfather with another young boy, when the tide begins to make, on another beach. In between it wanders through a lost and perhaps more hopeful Europe before finally coming to brief peace in the knowledge of a longer journey still to be made, and a recognition that to know is uncertain and to understand can only be partial. Remembering with affection the ignorant and thoughtless visions of youth, the journey maps the loss of innocence and its replacement (perhaps) by something like understanding, and acceptance.
