At first reading, most Christians might dismiss the Book of Ruth as a simple story of romance and redemption, an Old Testament tale with no bearing on their lives. But in Julie Wilson's inspired retelling, it becomes so much more. She uses numerous New Testament Scriptures to show how the relationship of Naomi and Ruth is an allegory for how mature believers can disciple new believers, and how the marriage of Ruth and Boaz foreshadows the relationship of Jesus with the Body of Christ. Homecoming also demonstrates how the book of Ruth can help believers to regain spiritual footing after serious setbacks, thereby serving as a healing balm for all who have been wounded by terrorism, personal tragedy, or scandals within the Church. In twelve chapters, each followed by Scripture study and reflection prompts, this fascinating and multi-layered book challenges readers to discern where they are in their relationship with the Lord, and how to proceed to spiritual maturity. Homecoming is for experienced students of the Bible as well as anyone who has ever said, "I just don't get the Old Testament." After reading Homecoming, you'll get it like never before.

You are invited to Homecoming at Bethel Baptist Church in Shadyside, NC. The service promises an inspiring sermon and unexpected comedy. Get ready to enjoy a covered dish meal and to learn some of the cooks' recipes. After Homecoming, meet Estelle who sees a Naked Man in a distant yard. Next observe a beekeeper and his wife who care for The Last Swarm and spend a morning with Constance who insists on perfection in Still Life. Finally travel with two retirees who downsize and learn when to let go in Granny's Bowling Ball. EXCERPT FROM Homecoming Loretta Wiseman moved the coconut cake one more time. It took up almost a whole shelf in the refrigerator. Thank goodness tomorrow is Homecoming Sunday, she thought. I won't have to shift the milk carton and tea pitcher around this Tupperware cake holder anymore. Folks at Bethel Baptist looked forward to Loretta's coconut cake on Homecoming Sunday. Tuesday night she had mixed the shredded coconut, sugar, and sour cream. On Wednesday she made the cake layers and stacked them with the coconut filling. Then, it was a four-day wait. Keeping her husband Luke away from the cake was almost as much trouble as making room for it in the refrigerator. Loretta pulled a package of Mom & Pop's country ham from behind the Tupperware cake cover. She balanced it on a carton of eggs in her right hand and closed the refrigerator. Loretta had worked at The Posy Patch until noon. Saturday was usually her day off, but there was a big funeral at the Presbyterian Church tomorrow. She had spent the morning making the casket spray of red roses and baby's breath. It was one of the biggest ones she had ever done. Loretta filled a pot with water and placed it on the large rear burner of her aging electric stove. She punched the high button. The eggs could boil while the ham was frying. Tomorrow morning she would get up early to devil the eggs, bake biscuits for the ham, and cook two packages of limas she had frozen back in July. Mandy, her daughter, would be coming tomorrow morning with her fruit salad. Mandy lived in Winston-Salem with her boyfriend Richard. Loretta and Luke liked Richard, a Wake Forest Law School graduate, but they did not approve of Mandy living with him. Four years ago when Mandy told her parents she was moving into Richard's new house, Loretta and Luke had raised a fuss. It was worse than when Mandy decided to transfer from a small Baptist college to the University in Chapel Hill. That university was where she picked up so many of her liberal ideas. Mandy came home telling Loretta and Luke which wine to drink with chicken, pork, or beef. Iced tea or strong coffee had always been good enough for them. She talked about abortion rights, women's rights, and gay rights. Luke and Loretta thought she sounded like a leftist. Their daughter did have a good paying job thanks to the interview her college arranged with a bank. Until she landed that position, Mandy had vowed she would go to New York City to find a job. Loretta and Luke were thankful their only child did not end up in the North. Winston-Salem was only an hour and a half away. Mandy had not spent a night under her parent's roof in four years. Luke had made it clear to his daughter she would not share a bed in his house with a man who was not her husband. "You're twenty-three. Why don't you get married?" he had asked her. "We're not ready. We want to make sure this'll work." Mandy had explained. As Loretta fried ham for her biscuits, she thought of her daughter's words. She was past being angry and hurt with Mandy. But she really didn't understand today's young people. Seemed like they were not "ready" to face the real world. The phone rang and interrupted her thoughts. She glanced at the stove clock and saw its hands at 5:30. Luke's calling to find out what's for supper, thought Loretta. Her hands ached. He'd have to be happy with a BLT tonight. He could save his appetite for Homecoming. "Hello," Loretta said as sh

In this book, war, intercourse, and homecoming are put forward as central themes in the two Homeric epics. All three themes have their own semiotics and operate in different ways in the Illiad and the Odyssey thereby determing their myth and plot, their narrative syntax and, more generally their poetic and humanistic character.

This is the second volume in a series on wide-ranging topics relating to objects in the Antiquities collection of the Getty Museum. It consists of seven articles in English, German, and Italian. Chronologically ranging from Pier Giovanni Guzzo's presentation of two early sixth-century-B.C. silver cups to a technical analysis by Maya Elston and Jeffrey Maish of a rare late-antique wooden sarcophagus from Egypt. Despoina Tsiafakis discusses a South Italian bronze askos in the shape of a siren, and Gina Salapata analyzes a pair of South Italian terra-cotta arulae. As a companion text to his publication of an important jewelry assemblage in Greek Gold from Hellenistic Egypt (see p. 13), Michael Pfrommer presents an in-depth scholarly interpretation of the jewelry. Janet Burnett Grossman has compiled a catalogue of portraits of Alexander the Great in various media from the Getty Museum; and two life-size bronze portraits of delicati, thought to be from Gaul, are the topic of John Pollini's detailed discussion.
