Bad Water and Other Stories of the Alaskan Panhandle is a book of short stories set in southeast Alaska on an archipelago about the size of Florida. There are not many people and most of them live in a few small scattered towns. Some live in the more remote areas of the thousands of miles of coastline and hundreds of backwater bays and coves, making a living at whatever is available. Alaska is a place where geography and weather dictate human behavior, and that could mean eating the same dried beans, rice, deer meat and fish for a good part of the year. With no freeways and little law enforcement (a 911call means contacting the Coast Guard), people must learn to be self-sufficient, especially in times of emergencies. Sometimes people make their own solutions to solve problems. If a solution doesn't work and you're still alive, it's time to try another! The folks that live in this remote part of Alaska do whatever it takes to make it work. There's a freedom that can't be had in civilization, but the price is high. These are their stories.

Up-and-Coming Leader Reveals the Key to a Life of Supernatural Possibility Peter never set out to walk on water; he didn't attend a special seminar or school. He just wanted to be closer to Jesus. No matter the storm, no matter the danger, he saw only Jesus--and that's what got him out of the boat and into the impossible. We all have storms and barriers in life. And, like Peter, we have a choice: stay in the safe, small places or pursue with reckless abandon the limitless heart of Jesus. With fresh biblical insight and immediately practical application, author and teacher Jennifer Miskov paints a bigger and entirely more compelling vision of a life lived on the water. You'll discover the source of courageous faith and how to let go and take those first steps. The wind and the waves will come. But the One you're walking toward has calmed the storm, and he's waiting to do the impossible on your behalf. He's waiting for you to take a risk, to follow your heart--and to step out of the boat.

The New York Times bestseller A Long Walk to Water begins as two stories, told in alternating sections, about two eleven-year-olds in Sudan, a girl in 2008 and a boy in 1985. The girl, Nya, is fetching water from a pond that is two hours’ walk from her home: she makes two trips to the pond every day. The boy, Salva, becomes one of the "lost boys" of Sudan, refugees who cover the African continent on foot as they search for their families and for a safe place to stay. Enduring every hardship from loneliness to attack by armed rebels to contact with killer lions and crocodiles, Salva is a survivor, and his story goes on to intersect with Nya’s in an astonishing and moving way.

The Bible and the American Myth

The Bible and the American Myth challenges the academic study of the Bible to orient itself to cultural criticism. The essays model an approach to the study of the Bible that entails efforts to fathom not only the meanings of texts, but the role of texts in the construction of meaning. It is all the more fascinating and poignant that the essayists are students of theology of varied backgrounds. What they have in common is the pursuit of theological studies at the mouth of Harlem. This location at the turn of the century inspired them to think differently about the focus and agenda of theological studies, especially biblical studies. Each essayist is convinced that the study of the Bible should entail the study of cultural construction and deconstruction, the study of the making and unmaking of cultural myths that shape existence.

"""Here are nine stories, poignant and almost shy. Anne Calcagno has written not of the sexual politics of strife, but of the deeper understanding of life's complicated mismatches and inevitable miscalculations. Calcagno has the clean voice and sharp unblinking eye of a true storyteller."" --Larry Heinemann, National Book Award-winning author of Paco's Story ""Nine stories, each unforgettably clear, magnetic, and alive. Language as maddeningly fascinating as a fifty-car locomotive, perfectly carved, from a single piece of wood."" --Lynda Barry, author of Cruddy ""These are chancy, exhilarating, and often disturbing stories. Calcagno's high-voltage images of ordinary life remind us that nothing is mundane, that our many small disturbances are darkly miraculous."" --Rick DeMarinis, author of The Coming Triumph of the Free World"
