Summary : A historical novel about the most unlikely of lovers, interwoven with the mysticism of the Jewish occult. Frances Sherwood brings to life the experience of the Jewish community during a period of oppression and rebirth. Set in seventeenth-century Prague, The Book of Splendor is an adventure-filled romance stocked with court intrigue and political tension, including the machinations of the rival Ottoman Empire, the religious controversies of Protestantism, and the constant threat of violence to the Jewish community. At the heart of the novel is Rochel, a bastard seamstress who escapes poverty through an arranged marriage to the tailor Zev, but falls in love with Yossel, the Golem created by Rabbi Loew to protect the Jewish community. Meanwhile, Emperor Rudolph II puts the safety of all Prague at risk in his mad bid for an elixir of immortality. The Book of Splendor is an epic tale reminiscent of Anita Diamant's The Red Tent, and a love story as unlikely as Tracy Chevalier's Girl with a Pearl Earring. Reading group guide included.

Summary : A brilliantly conceived novel imagining the little understood lives of Moses de León, the 13th-century Spanish kabbalist thought to have authored the Zohar, the central work of Jewish mysticism, and Carlos Castaneda, a 20th-century Peruvian anthropologist who claimed extraordinary experiences in the modern mystical classic, The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge. In this novel, Alpert matches their visions with his own conjurings of their inner lives. Dreams of strange figures; encounters with kabbalists and curanderos; and studies with unlikely spiritual guides, intertwine across traditions in uncanny ways. Praise for The Books of SplendorAn imaginative novel that hyperloops the interior lives of two of the most important authors of world mystical literature: 13th-century Castilian Rabbi Moses de Leon (Zohar) and 20th-century Peruvian and Californian Carlos Castaneda (Don Juan). In creative pre-histories we meet De Leon's adopted son, the Yanuka, and Castaneda's Cajamarcan mentor, a renegade Chabad Hasid who experiments with the entheogen ayahuasca. A fascinating literary doppelgänger, if not a soul-impregnation.- Menachem Kallus, author of Pillar of PrayerIf you want to learn the mysteries of Kabbalah in a delightful manner and, at the same time, be enthralled by an amazing tale, then this book is for you. Dive in! ... The author-composing this work pseudonymously, as did the authors of the Zohar-is an esteemed scholar of Jewish spirituality and a gifted writer.- Daniel Matt, author of The Essential Kabbalah, and translator of the multi-volume annotated, The Zohar: Pritzker Edition

Summary : From the pure light of the High Sierra to sandwich wrappers blown against a chain fence, David Shaddock has the visionary ability to see, everywhere, the numinosity of what surrounds us. This empowers him to approach also the Holy within the deep tangled griefs of our lives. Peter Dale Scott, Professor of English, emeritus, University of California, author of Poetry and Terror and Coming to Jakarta David Shaddock discovers splendor in the mundane. By the power of his lyrical imagination, he liberates the divine sparks trapped within their material shells. Thereby he translates the ancient wisdom of Jewish spirituality into a scintillating modern idiom for contemporary readers and seekers. Daniel C. Matt, author of The Essential Kabbalah and the multivolume annotated translation, The Zohar: Pritzker Edition Shaddock's poetry, of course, is words, but one hears thought and deed and stillness in it. The thought that springs from Kabbalah, the mystical thought-pattern of the Jewish people. The action that seeks to heal the broken earth. The stillness of Shabbat, where we can be tranquil in the world that is all God. Rabbi Arthur Waskow, Director, The Shalom Center, author of Seasons of Our Joy and God Wrestling.

Summary : Considered by many the bright jewel among the many enriching books of Cardinal Henri de Lubac, this work is a hymn to the beauty of the Church, under some of whose leaders for a time he unjustly suffered. The Splendor of the Church is, in a sense, a personal testimony of the great theologian's humility and love of the Church of Christ. It is also a classic work in the theology of the Church. Indeed, de Lubac's profound insights significantly contributed to Vatican II's Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, Lumen Gentium, especially in its treatment on the Church as mystery and as the Sacrament of Christ.

Summary : For Yale University Press, which celebrates its hundredth birthday in 2008, the century has been an eventful one, punctuated with no few surprises. The Press has published more than 8,000 volumes through the years, scores of bestsellers and award-winners among them, and these books have come to fruition through the efforts of a host of colorful authors, editors, directors, board members, and others of intellectual and literary renown. With an ear always cocked for an interesting tale, one of today's best storytellers presents an anecdote-rich chronicle of the Press's first 100 years. Nicholas Basbanes, whom David McCullough has called the leading authority of books about books, quickly convinces us that the Press's history, while bookish, is also lively and fascinating. Basbanes explores the saga behind the acquisition of Eugene O'Neill's blockbuster play, the all-time Yale bestseller Long Day's Journey into Night; the controversy sparked in 1965 by publication of The Vinland Map; the origins of the groundbreaking Annals of Communism series, initiated in the wake of the Soviet Union's demise; and many more highlights from Press annals. Basbanes looks at the reasons behind the publisher's remarkable financial success, and he completes A World of Letters with a glimpse at the new initiatives that will propel the Press into a second exciting century.
