Excited that this arrived earlier than expected: EVELYN UNDERHILL’S PRAYER BOOK, ed. by Robyn Wrigley-Carr (@spck_publishing, 2018).
.
“Between 1924 and 1938, Evelyn Underhill compiled two personal prayer books for use when conducting spiritual retreats at the Chelmsford Diocese House of Retreat, Pleshey. The prayers include carefully selected quotations from a variety of theologians and writers of Christian spirituality, as well as her own very rich, metaphorical and theologically deep reflections. These collections are now available for the first time.”

Emily Wilson became the first woman to publish a translation of Homer’s THE ODYSSEY (@w.w.norton, 2018) in English. This is monumental!
.
In her @newyorkermag article (Dec. 8, 2017), Wilson says, “I read Homer’s great poem as a complex and truthful articulation of gender dynamics that continue to haunt us. The Odyssey traces deep male fears about female power, and it shows the terrible damage done to women, and perhaps also to men, by the androcentric social structures that keep us silent and constrained.”
.
To #RowanWilliams, Wilson’s work is “a masterpiece of translation—fluent, elegant, vigorous.”
.
Richard F. Thomas (@harvard) calls it “a staggeringly superior translation—true, poetic, lively and readable, and always closely engaged with the original Greek—that brings to life the fascinating variety of voices in Homer’s great epic.”

Thrilled to have Kate Bowler’s (@katecbowler) new memoir here! You MUST check out EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON: AND OTHER LIES I’VE LOVED (@penguinrandomhouse, 2018)—wish you were here to talk about it with us!
.
Just listen to this excerpt from the front cover:
.
“Then she is diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. The prospect of her own mortality forces Kate to realize that she has been tacitly subscribing to the prosperity gospel, living with the conviction that she can control the shape of her life with a ‘surge of determination.’ Even as this type of Christianity celebrates the American can-do spirit, it implies that if you ‘can’t do’ and succumb to illness or misfortune, you are a failure. Kate is very sick, and no amount of positive thinking will shrink her tumors. What does it mean to die, she wonders, in a society that insists everything happens for a reason?”
.
Kate is a @yaledivinityschool alumna and Prof. at @dukedivinity.

Tyehimba Jess’s (@tyehimbajess) 2017 #Pulitzer winning book of poetry, OLIO (@wavepoetry, 2016), has made it into our #literature collection!
.
Jess “weaves sonnet, song, and narrative to examine the lives of mostly unrecorded African American performers directly before and after the Civil War up to World War I. OLIO is an effort to understand how they met, resisted, complicated, co-opted, and sometimes defeated attempts to minstrelize them.”
