There have been many great and enduring works of literature by Caribbean authors over the last century. The Caribbean Contemporary Classics collection celebrates these deep and vibrant stories, overflowing with life and acute observations about society. A sparkling collection of short stories set in Trinidad. Anthony takes our hand and walks us from the valley of the lush, green cocoa trees, to taste the sweet rivers flowing nearby. We pluck fruit from the sapodilla tree and feel the crisp, brown guava leaved carpet crunch under our feet. We see Mayaro and Port of the Spain through the eyes of childish innocence and grown-up ignorance. Beautiful, evocative and poignant, the stories are sprinkled with themes of yearning for home, sad realisations and a longing for a pre-modern totality.
There have been many great and enduring works of literature by Caribbean authors over the last century. The Caribbean Contemporary Classics collection celebrates these deep and vibrant stories, overflowing with life and acute observations about society. Fifteen-year-old Shell tells his story directly and we see things through his eyes - his confused feelings first for Rosalie, and then for Joan, his distress about the illness and death of his father, and his admiration tempered by fear of Mr Gidharee, Rosalie's father. This iconic, universal 'coming of age' novel conveys the confusion of a teenager growing to maturity, and the difficult choices that have to be made. Shell is gradually led out of childhood and into a deeper understanding of the human condition. Suitable for readers aged 14 and above.
No one is born courageous, but everyone hopes courage will come. Here's how to stand strong. Like many other people of faith, you may be concerned about what the future holds for Christians in America. Every day we wake up in a nation and world that is increasingly hostile to our beliefs and values. Even the basic freedoms that define America--speech and religion--are under attack. The result is that many of us have become fearful, apathetic and detached. The great need of the day is a sweeping revolution of courage in our lives, families and houses of worship. A Call for Courage will spark that revolution in you. Michael Anthony understands how fear can paralyze us, and in this revolutionary new book he shows Christians how to stand up and speak out, mobilizing them to walk by faith, not fear. Drawing from Scripture and deep personal experience, he proves that anyone can learn the secret to putting fear in its place and becoming more courageous. A Call for Courage will help you stand up and speak out while others demand you sit down and shut up. You will learn how to develop the secret weapons God has given you for courage, handle haters, racists, and everyone in between, overcome attacks against your freedom of religion and speech, speak the truth with love when disagreements threaten to create division, and develop courageous humility as your new way of life. A Call for Courage is a handbook on how to live with courageous humility. No matter who you are or what you're facing, A Call for Courage will help you live with power, truth, and love in an age of intolerance and fear.
Mankind has always suspected that there is a ruler of the cosmos. It is inherent in our psyche. Why? This short essay reveals, in simple form, the hierarchy of the cosmos and who rules our insignificant planet. It also tersely sets the mind to contemplating the composition of the cosmos and our very existence.
