Unlock the secrets of active meditation
In a world which expects instant gratification and immediate success, spiritual meditation looks like hard work. Edmond Smith does not deny this, but still calls us back to this much-neglected discipline.
We are given an insight into the lives of various figures in history who left an indelible mark on the church of their time and on subsequent generations. Each emphasised the need for serious contemplation of Scripture and we see how this enriched their lives and benefited the church as whole.
We are challenged to follow their footsteps and be like the tree planted by the streams of living water, the word of God, drawing continually on its life and consequently bearing much fruit.
Breaking in to the Movies brings together Henry A. Giroux's best-known essays from the last twenty years, centering on important subjects on the cultural studies and pop culture agenda, including violence, race, class, gender, identity, politics, and children's culture. The volume charts his career as one of the most astute observers of the Hollywood tradition, from early reflections on Norma Rae and Looking for Mister Goodbar to ground-breaking analyses of more recent movies such as Pulp Fiction, Dead Poets Society, Dangerous Minds, and Fight Club. By addressing the profound pedagogical role of film in contemporary society, Giroux demonstrates how it dramatically shapes the way young people come to terms with today's most charged social issues.
