Daily Reflections Excerpt :

This is a book of reflections by A.A. members for A.A. members. It was first published in 1990 to fulfill a long-felt need within the Fellowship for a collection of reflections that moves through the calendar year--one day at a time. Each page contains a reflection on a quotation from A.A. Conference-approved literature, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, As Bill Sees It and other books. These reflections were submitted by members of the A.A. Fellowship who were not professional writers, nor did they speak for A.A. but only for themselves, from their own experiences in sobriety. Thus the book offers sharing, day by day, from a broad cross section of members, which focuses on the Three Legacies of Alcoholics Anonymous: Recovery, Unity and Service. Daily Reflections has proved to be a popular book that aids individuals in their practice of daily meditation and provides inspiration to group discussions even as it presents an introduction for some to A.A. literature as a whole.

Moral Reflections on the Book of Job Volume 6 Excerpt :

Gregory the Great was pope from 590 to 604, a time of great turmoil in Italy and in the western Roman Empire generally because of the barbarian invasions. Gregory’s experience as prefect of the city of Rome and as apocrisarius of Pope Pelagius fitted him admirably for the new challenges of the papacy. The Moral Reflections on the Book of Job were first given to the monks who accompanied Gregory to the embassy in Constantinople. This sixth volume, containing books 28 through 35, provides commentary on five chapters of Job, from 38:1 through 42:17. The present volume contains the Lord’s appearing to Job out of the whirlwind, the Lord’s two lengthy speeches to Job and Job’s responses, and, finally, the Lord’s rebuke to Job’s friends and restoration of Job’s fortunes. Finally, Gregory speaks of his intention in writing this long work and requests that his readers grant him their prayers and tears. Includes comprehensive indexes for volumes 1-6.

  • Pages : 126
  • ISBN 10 : 9781482855807

Reflections Excerpt :

This fifth collection of poems, titled "Reflections," comprising one hundred poems of Dr. Ashok T. Chakravarthy, primarily concentrate on key universal issues of concern. The poems promote welfare-oriented universal concepts viz., universal peace and brotherhood, protection of environment, concern for nature, care for children rights, the priceless feelings for a mother and so on. The poet's quest for world peace is focused in quite a number of poems, and the feelings that peace remains an essential imperative to be inculcated in world citizens. Despite disappointments and conflicts still existing elsewhere, the poet takes it as his moral duty to promote his chosen concepts on environment protection, children welfare, nature and so on. The task to promote and protect universal culture does not lag behind. His thirst to contribute the best of poetry to safeguard universal values, ideologies, and religions is visible in his poems and stokes serene feelings in every reader. These recurring aspirations in the poet's thoughts and in particular the incessant longing to express them through poetry compositions is worth a rare phenomenon which ought to be recognized as a rare poetic talent. Most of the verses of Dr. Ashok T. Chakravarthy are literary kits that give good rhythm when tuned to music for enlivening the lyrical philosophy. The poet's pursuit to strengthen the ideals of peace in every world citizen, every nation and in every peace-yearning youth have carved a niche in the hearts of several citizens across the world. This particular volume invites a strong literary debate that will upsurge the advocacy for the changes it strives to uphold across global boundaries.

Lenten Reflections Excerpt :

This book is written for those among us who have weathered life’s storms, yet sense a nagging emptiness in their spiritual well-being. Lenten Reflections: From the Desert to the Resurrection is written for those of us who want to be more spiritual. It is divided into four parts. Part One sets the framework for a treatment of the study of our salvation. It is devoted to the historical roots of Lent, its purpose, and its theology. To that end, this section also provides the reader with an overview of the creation story, a discussion of evil and sin, and a summary of the Trinity and the incarnation. Part Two sets the stage for an initial reflection on Lent, while Part Three introduces the disciplines needed to successfully pass through the desert to spiritual wholeness. Four seminal questions are posed: Where are we? What are we? Who are we? Why are we? Answers to these questions set the stage for what many spiritual masters call the purgative way, in which the Twelve-Step Program of Alcoholic Anonymous is suggested as a framework to one’s first steps into spiritual wholeness. At some point in their spiritual journey, the reader moves into what these same spiritual masters call the illuminative and unitive ways. Part Four is entitled “The Agony and Exultation.” Here, we join Jesus on the road to Calvary, where he is crucified. We know a mysterious joy as he rises from the tomb. We end our reflections with his departure from his disciples, the coming of the Paraclete, and a new understanding of the meaning behind Jesus’ sacrifice and life on earth.

Reflections on Qualitative Research in Language and Literacy Education Excerpt :

This book discusses aspects of the theory and practice of qualitative research in the specific context of language and literacy education. It addresses epistemological perspectives, methodological problems, and practical considerations related to research involvements in areas of language education and literacy studies rather than generic issues of other fields of social sciences. The volume starts with Theoretical Considerations in the first part and raises some epistemological and theoretical concerns that are rarely debated in the specific context of research on language and literacy teaching. The second part, Methodological Approaches explores issues of the design and implementation of language and literacy education research within the framework of some of the major established qualitative research traditions. Finally, the part on Research in Action discusses practical aspects of a few actual instances of qualitative research on language and literacy education in different contexts.
