A fresh and inspirational daily encounter with fascinating people, pivotal moments, and crucial issues over two millennia of Christian history. What happened on this day-or, more precisely, what happened on this day that should interest and inspire Christians? The Christian History Devotional has the answer. For every day of the year, The Christian History Devotional contains a Bible verse, a brief story from Christian history connected with the date, and a prayer that applies the day's story to the reader's life. It turns Christian history, which many readers might assume is boring or irrelevant, into an uplifting and fascinating devotional experience. While drawing from two thousand years of history, Lang provides readers with fascinating stories from a wide span of subjects-missions, evangelism, social reforms, Bible versions, martyrdoms, church-state relations, music, art, and literature.

His narrative ability is a real gift that enables these messages to illumine the word of God and human life so that a listener is drawn into the word and encouraged to reflect, remember, and think about life in terms of God's activity. These sermons reflect a pastor whose imaginative juices flow mightily." Thomas E. Ridenhour McClurg Distinguished Professor of Homiletics Vice President for Academic Affairs & Dean Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary "I am impressed by the sense of urgency in Robert Cueni's messages.

The title is misleading. The work is actually an account of the author's life in Quebec with extracts of many letters from relatives, his opinions on many subjects, and many adverse comments on Catholicism.

Shakespeare Studies is an international volume published every year in hard cover that contains essays and studies by scholars and cultural historians from both hemispheres. Although the journal maintains a focus on the theatrical milieu of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, it is also concerned with Britain's intellectual and cultural connections to the continent, its sociopolitical history, and its place in the emerging globalism of the period. The journal also includes substantial reviews of significant publications dealing with these issues, as well as theoretical studies relevant to scholars of early modern culture. This issue features another Forum, entitled "The Universities and the Theater." Organized and introduced by John H. Astington, the Forum includes commentary considering the relationship between theater in the universities and the Renaissance public stage. Volume XXXVII also features articles on the Fortune contract, and Titus Andronicus and the New World, as well as a review article on women and the early modern stage. There are nineteen reviews in this volume on such varying topics as angels in the early modern world, Shakespeare and the nature of love, and Shakespeare in French theory. Susan Zimmerman is Professor of English at Queens College, City University of New York. Garrett Sullivan is Professor of English at Pennsylvania State University.

Recent studies on the development of early Christianity emphasize the fragmentation of the late ancient world while paying less attention to a distinctive feature of the Christianity of this time which is its inter-connectivity. Both local and trans-regional networks of interaction contributed to the expansion of Christianity in this age of fragmentation. This volume investigates a specific aspect of this inter-connectivity in the area of the Mediterranean by focusing on the formation and operation of episcopal networks. The rise of the bishop as a major figure of authority resulted in an increase in long-distance communication among church elites coming from different geographical areas and belonging to distinct ecclesiastical and theological traditions. Locally, the bishops in their roles as teachers, defenders of faith, patrons etc. were expected to interact with individuals of diverse social background who formed their congregations and with secular authorities. Consequently, this volume explores the nature and quality of various types of episcopal relationships in Late Antiquity attempting to understand how they were established, cultivated and put to use across cultural, linguistic, social and geographical boundaries.
