Wisdom, Let Us Attend by Johanna Manley Summary
This patristic anthology combines three books (bound as a single volume). In Book 1, through the insights of SS Gregory the Great, Hesychius of Jerusalem, and John Chrysostom, we gain a new perspective on the Book of Job, the most intensly personal book of the Old Testament, challenging us to meditate on how we deal with life. Passages are also included on the function of angels and demons. Book 2 is a partial reprint of The Lament of Eve, comprising the patristic prologue on the first five chapters of Genesis. Book 3 offers patristic guidance through much of the remainder of the Old Testament from Genesis through to the Song of Songs. With St Ephraim the Syrian we learn the Syriac tradition of Genesis. Origen provides interesting insights on Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers; St Gregory of Nyssa on Canticles. Includes extracts from the Prologue from Ochrid by Bishop Nikolai Veimirovich and many of his homilies on Proverbs.
John by Niall Williams Summary
What invisible drama plays, what passes to and fro in the columns of air above them, none knows, but the disciples think: perhaps the time is arrived at last. Aged, blind and perilously frail, John the Apostle has walked ten thousand miles to tell of love. In a hundred years he has lived to witness sights and scenes that now cloud his mind. Of his followers, there are few remaining, banished with him to an island where they wait as storm clouds whip the island with rain. They wait for the world to free them from exile. They wait for signs that seem like they will never come. But eventually a sign does come and together the disciples leave the island. They embark on a journey that will change their lives forever: a journey filled with purpose and fear which will test their belief - in love and in each other - to breaking point, and John must face his biggest battle yet. John depicts the inner life of a man of faith and doubt with extraordinary poetic vision. Romantic, wild and passionate, this is the story of what it might be to love for a lifetime.

Lost Angels by Vicky Lebeau Summary
Re-reading Freud's writing on femininity, fantasy and social identification, Lost Angels expands the psychoanalytic framework within which contemporary debates regarding fantasy and spectatorship have been taking place. Vicky Lebeau takes Freud's preoccupation with femininity and feminine fantasy as her starting point and goes on to explore his differentiation between masculine and feminine forms of fantasy through feminist and critical theories of spectatorship and cinema. Investigating how psychoanalysis explains fantasy as a form of preoccupation which cuts across both 'private' and 'public' forms of fantasy, Lebeau links discussion of the female spectator with the so-called 'malaise' of today's mass culture through her close readings of three key 'youth' films of the 1980's - John Hughes' Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Francis Coppola's Rumble Fish and Tim Hunter's River's Edge. Lost Angels is a ground-breading addition to current feminist film theory and essential reading for all students of film.
