Crumbs from the Round Table - Joseph Barber Summary

Published in 1866 in New York, Crumbs from the Round Table is a collection of epicurean poetry, editorials, and articles from a culinary critic of the day, Joseph Barber. In his book, Barber describes himself as writing “that which he knows, a fact which will become apparent to the reader of these sketches” and showcases his “foodie” skills with works such as “Epigastric Poetry,” “A Few Words about Puddings,” “The Fruits of June,” and “Savory Stanzas for November.” With a humorous and entertaining flair, Crumbs from the Round Table provides not only a fascinating look at mid-19th century culinary criticism and thought but also an insightful collection highlighting the wit and social attitudes of the time. This edition of Crumbs from the Round Table was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the society is a research library documenting the lives of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes.

Crumbs from the Master's Table - Kevin Edwards Summary

Beware of this simple book for it is threatening beyond measure, and those who ponder its teachings will never be the same. It's power lies in its disarming simplicity, since it takes just a single word or phrase to awaken the heart from its ancient sleep. -The Author "In a style, passion and depth of insight reminiscent of Kabir, Rumi and other Sufi mystic poets, Kevin Edwards gives us glimpses into the heart of the matter. These 'crumbs' from a budding master are concentrated nuggets of wisdom that sometimes confound and challenge, sometimes amuse and delight, always stretching our conventional thinking, and leading us to break through to new levels of understanding." -Tom Skorupa, editor for Forest of Peace Publishing, and spiritual guide of Shantivanam "Kevin Edwards' writing is refreshing and original. He has a way of putting new wine in new bottles." -Wayne Teasdale, author of A Monk in the World, and The Mystic Heart

Aesthetic Pleasure in Twentieth-Century Women's Food Writing - Alice McLean Summary

This book explores the aesthetic pleasures of eating and writing in the lives of M. F. K. Fisher (1908-1992), Alice B. Toklas (1877-1967), and Elizabeth David (1913-1992). Growing up during a time when women's food writing was largely limited to the domestic cookbook, which helped to codify the guidelines of middle class domesticity, Fisher, Toklas, and David claimed the pleasures of gastronomy previously reserved for men. Articulating a language through which female desire is artfully and publicly sated, Fisher, Toklas, and David expanded women’s food writing beyond the domestic realm by pioneering forms of self-expression that celebrate female appetite for pleasure and for culinary adventure. In so doing, they illuminate the power of genre-bending food writing to transgress and reconfigure conventional gender ideologies. For these women, food encouraged a sensory engagement with their environment and a physical receptivity toward pleasure that engendered their creative aesthetic.

The Book of the Elders - N.A Summary

In the early part of the fourth century, a few Christians, mostly men and some women, began to withdraw from "the world" to retreat into the desert, there to practice their new religion more seriously. The person who aspired to "renounce the world" first had to find an "elder," a person who would accept him as a disciple and apprentice. To his elder (whom he would address as abba—father) the neophyte owed complete obedience; from his abba, he would receive provisions (as it were) for the road to virtue. In addition to the abba's own example of living, there was the verbal teaching of the elders in sayings and tales, setting out the theory and practice of the eremitic life. In due course, these sayings (or apophthegmata) were written down and, later, collected and codified. The earliest attempts to codify tales and sayings are now lost. As the collection grew, they were first organized alphabetically, according to the name of the abba who spoke them, in a major collection known as the Apophthegmata Patrum Alphabetica. A supplementary collection, the Anonymous Apophthegmata, followed. Later, both collections were combined and arranged systematically rather than alphabetically. This collection was created sometime between 500 and 575 and later went through a couple of major revisions, the second of which appeared sometime before 970. This second revision was published in an excellent new critical edition, with a French translation, in 1993. Now, in The Book of the Elders, John Wortley offers an English translation of this collection, based entirely on the Greek of that text.

The Tenth Plague - Adam Blumer Summary

After adopting their son, Marc and Gillian Thayer intend on enjoying a relaxing weekend away at a picturesque resort in northern Michigan. That is, until their friend turns up dead and the resort becomes a grisly murder scene. A killer, seeking revenge, begins reenacting the ten plagues of Egypt on the resort and everyone in it, including a Bible translation team already drawing angry protests for proposing to merge the Bible with corresponding passages from the Qur’an. Water turns to blood. Gnats attack the innocent. As plague after plague appears, the Thayers must make sense of how their story intersects with those of the others at the resort—and of their own dark pasts. In this “chilling tale that keeps readers turning pages and pondering its truths” (C. J. Darlington), the Thayers must unravel the truth. But will they uncover the killer’s bitter agenda before the tenth plague—the death of the firstborn son? Praise for The Tenth Plague: “Suspense of biblical proportions! Adam Blumer does a masterful job transforming the biblical plagues to a modern-day scenario full of twists and turns that will keep you riveted until the very end.”—Bonnie S. Calhoun, publisher of Christian Fiction Online Magazine and author of Cooking the Books: A Sloane Templeton Mystery “A chilling tale that keeps readers turning pages and pondering its truths. The Tenth Plague is a solid entry in Adam Blumer’s bibliography, and fans of thrillers with spiritual depth will find much to enjoy.”—C. J. Darlington, author of Thicker than Blood and Bound by Guilt “Adam Blumer writes a suspenseful story with a passion for God not often seen in today’s marketplace.”—Creston Mapes, best-selling author of Nobody, Dark Star, and Full Tilt “The Tenth Plague delivers a compelling premise of a Bible/Qur’an hybrid sparking controversy and murder that will thrill readers of clean Christian fiction!”—Bryn Jones, author of The Next Chapter “An intriguing premise with suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Blumer’s crafted a great thriller in The Tenth Plague.”—Graham Garrison, author of Hero’s Tribute and Legacy Road “Adam Blumer’s The Tenth Plague sweeps an ordinary couple into a current of extraordinary events—all with a mentally deranged man calling the shots. Here’s a novel that will keep you wondering what can possibly go wrong next!”—Rick Barry, author of Gunner’s Run “An almost-forgotten mine disaster, a misguided conference on Bible translation, a twisted take on the book of Revelation, a botched ATF-FBI operation, a gifted autistic child—Adam Blumer has woven these strands and more into a page-turning tapestry of a mystery. You won’t want to lay this one aside till the author has tied up all the loose ends.”—Richard C. Leonard, author of Heart of the Highriders and Silence of the Drums

The Expositions On The Psalms - St. Augustine of Hippo Summary

This is the extended and annotated edition including * an extensive biographical annotation about the author and his life In any commentary on a portion of the Old Testament by a writer unacquainted with Hebrew, exact criticism, and freedom from mistake, must not be expected. But the Psalms have been so in the mouth and in the heart of God’s people in all languages, that it has been necessary often to find an explanation suitable to imperfect translations. And no doubt it is intended that we should use such explanations for the purpose of edification, when we are unable to be more accurate, though in proving doctrine it is necessary always to remember and allow for any want of acquaintance with the original, or uncertainty with respect to its actual meaning. However, the main scope and bearing of the text is rarely affected by such points as vary in different translations, and the analogy of the faith is sufficient to prevent a Catholic 4 mind from adopting any error in consequence of a text seeming to bear a heterodox meaning. Perhaps the errors of translation in the existing versions may have led the Fathers to adopt rules of interpretation ranging too far from the simple and literal; but having such translations, they could hardly use them otherwise. Meanwhile St. Augustin will be found to excel in the intense apprehension of those great truths which pervade the whole of Sacred Writ, and in the vivid and powerful exposition of what bears upon them. It is hardly possible to read his practical and forcible applications of Holy Scripture, without feeling those truths by the faith of which we ought to live brought home to the heart in a wonderful manner. His was a mind that strove earnestly to solve the great problems of human life, and after exhausting the resources, and discovering the emptiness, of erroneous systems, found truth and rest at last in Catholic Christianity, in the religion of the Bible as expounded by St. Ambrose. And though we must look to his Confessions for the full view of all his cravings after real good, and their ultimate satisfaction, yet throughout his works we have the benefit of the earnestness with which he sought to feed on the “sincere milk of the word.”
