Silenced by his death and lost in a world without him, she was forced to face the looming quiet that overtook her. Finding My Voice is at once a love story and a painfully raw portrayal of one woman's journey through crippling grief toward her discovery of a place where she can sing once again.

WHY versus WHY NOT? Why did God place us in a world full of pleasures if we aren’t meant to pursue them all? In an imaginative dialogue, Oscar Wilde asks Jesus Christ to respond to this question about critical lifestyle choices. Their talk vividly illustrates the arguments for both sensual pleasure-seeking and moral moderation. Playwright, dramatist, poet, critic—Wilde openly defied the mores of Victorian society. His literary repartee fueled an “if it feels good, do it” humanistic philosophy that is still prevalent in the world today. SO WHAT does JESUS SAY? From the Trade Paperback edition.

Modeled after John Bunyan's famous Pilgrim's Progress, C. S. Lewis's Pilgrim's Regress (1933) represents a number of firsts for Lewis -- the first book he wrote after his conversion to Christianity, his first book of fiction, and the first book he published under his own name. This brand-new annotated edition helps readers recover the richness of Lewis's original allegory. Often considered obscure and difficult to read, The Pilgrim's Regress nonetheless remains a rollicking satire on modern cultural fads, a vivid account of contemporary spiritual dangers, and an illuminating tale for generations of pilgrims old and new. Editor David C. Downing relies both on his own expertise and on previously unpublished sources from Lewis himself to identify allusions to other authors, translate quotations, and explain inside jokes hidden within Lewis's text.

In his last book, Joshua Lie examines how the Evangelists misquoted the Old Testament to prove Jesus was the Messiah and embarks on a journey where he misquotes the four Gospels themselves to advance a Jesus that no Christian has ever dreamt of. The Nag Hammadi Library, the Gospel of Judas, the mysteries of the Manicheans and the Cathars, the alchemical endeavors of Carl Jung and the terrifying visions of Lovecraft and William Blake - all sources that he blends together to paint his personal savior.
