Philadelphia's community muralism movement is transforming the City of Brotherly Love into the Mural Capital of the World. This remarkable groundswell of public art includes some 3,500 wall-sized canvases: On warehouses and on schools, on mosques and in jails, in courthouses and along overpasses. In If These Walls Could Talk, Maureen O'Connell explores the theological and social significance of the movement. She calls attention to some of the most startling and powerful works it has produced and describes the narratives behind them. In doing so, O'Connell illustrates the ways that the arts can help us think about and work through the seemingly inescapable problems of urban poverty and arrive at responses that are both creative and effective. This is a book on American religion. It incorporates ethnography to explore faith communities that have used larger-than-life religious imagery to proclaim in unprecedented public ways their self-understandings, memories of the past, and visions of the future. It also examines the way this art functions in larger public discourse about problems facing every city in America. But If These Walls Could Talk is also theological text. It considers the theological implications of this most democratic expression of public art, mindful of the three components of every mural: the pieces themselves, those who create them, and those who interpret them. It illuminates a kind of beauty that seeks after social change or, in other words, the largely unexplored relationship between theological aesthetics and ethics.

For professors teaching Don Quixote de la Mancha and for students who are reading this classic story, A Key to the Quixote offers a comprehensive guide to one of the greatest novels ever written. During his teaching career, Dr. Larry W. Doman taught Cervantes' novel more than ten times to upper division classes and honors students. Student and peer appraisals revealed that the class was among the most highly evaluated, sought-after, and well-attended courses in the curriculum. Dr. Doman wrote A Key to the Quixote as if he were teaching the class. The book includes many techniques he used, including a scholarly monograph on "Parody and the Quixote," class discussion questions, and portions from two outstanding student journals. As an added bonus, Dr. Doman has included a novelette inspired by an episode from the Quixote. The philosophical psychological mystery, When Walls Fall, places the reader into the mind of a pre-med student who has a tragically overwhelming bias for order. A Key to the Quixote is the perfect compendium for teachers and students alike.

“With evocative language, a shifting timeline and more than one unreliable narrator, Suma subtly explores the balance of power between the talented and the mediocre, the rich and the poor, the brave and the cowardly . . . To reveal more would be to uncover the bloody heart that beats beneath the floorboards of this urban-legend-tinged tale.” —The New York Times The Walls Around Us is a ghostly story of suspense told in two voices--one still living and one dead. On the outside, there’s Violet, an eighteen-year-old ballerina days away from the life of her dreams when something threatens to expose the shocking truth of her achievement. On the inside, within the walls of a girls’ juvenile detention center, there’s Amber, locked up for so long she can’t imagine freedom. Tying these two worlds together is Orianna, who holds the key to unlocking all the girls’ darkest mysteries: What really happened on the night Orianna stepped between Violet and her tormentors? What really happened on two strange nights at Aurora Hills? Will Amber and Violet and Orianna ever get the justice they deserve--in this life or in another one? PRAISE FOR THE WALLS AROUND US: “A gorgeously written, spellbinding ghost story.” —Chicago Tribune "Unputdownable . . . the well-paced plot reveals guilt, innocence, and dark truths that will not stay hidden." —The Boston Globe “Suma excels in creating surreal, unsettling stories with vivid language, and this psychological thriller is no exception. Along the way, Suma also makes a powerful statement about the ease with which guilt can be assumed and innocence awarded, not only in the criminal justice system, but in our hearts--in the stories we tell ourselves. A fabulous, frightening read.” —Booklist, starred review “The wholly realistic view of adolescents meeting the criminal justice system is touched at first with the slimmest twist of an otherworldly creepiness, escalating finally to the truly hair-raising and macabre. Eerie, painful and beautifully spine-chilling.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review #1 Spring 2015 Kids’ Indie Next List Pick A Junior Library Guild Selection

When ten-year-old Daiter Popski moves into a new house in Nevada with his family, he can't wait to see his bedroom. To his surprise, his bedroom walls are already painted with beautifully colored pictures of a giant forest, a sandy desert, a sparkling ocean, and an erupting volcano. When his father unknowingly gives him a special magic stone, the walls come to life, allowing Daiter to travel into new worlds and meet incredible creatures. Unfortunately, by opening the doorway to these new worlds, Daiter releases Bullen Gongo, an evil tribal sorcerer who is determined to steal the five magic stones that give life to each world. It's a race against time as Daiter and the friends he meets along the way-Nickel, Zardo, Bullf, and others-attempt to protect the magic stones and use them to capture Bullen Gongo. But can they stop Bullen before he becomes too powerful and destroys all the worlds, including Daiter's?

No one ever chooses to stop at Black Rock Mesa, it's too desolate. The brutal wind, ever-present and temperamental, tests the willpower of the most stalwart residents. So, when a mysterious woman impulsively disembarks from a bus and gets blown into the town's general store, her presence causes quite a stir. She says little, but her Asian features earn her the nickname "Tokyo." Deciding to stay in town, she reveals little about her past, and is comforted to find little is asked. Slowly she comes to see that Black Rock is not like other towns -- due to the wind, everything, even time, works a bit differently. Black Rock, she learns, was founded by three prospectors looking for gold -- Noah, Shlomo and Apie. Noah, the most charismatic of the three, attracted quarrymen to this unforgiving place to tirelessly chip and haul the slate down from the mesa. But the big gaps left in the stories of the past hint to Tokyo that the town folk have secrets bigger than her own. No one is talking, not even the man Tokyo takes up with, Luke, Noah's son. This reticence suits Tokyo just fine, until one day a strange man shows up in Black Rock with revelations. Ultimately, no secret is immune.

In an earlier time, Shan Tao Yun was an Inspector stationed in Beijing. But he lost his position, his family and his freedom when he ran afoul of a powerful figure high in the Chinese government. Released unofficially from the work camp to which he'd been sentenced, Shan has been living in remote mountains of Tibet with a group of outlawed Buddhist monks. Without status, official identity, or the freedom to return to his former home in Beijing, Shan finds himself in the midst of a baffling series of events. During a ceremony meant to rededicate an ancient and long destroyed monastery, Shan stumbles across evidence of a recent murder in the ruins. Now Shan is being torn between some officials who want his help to search the ruins while others want him to disappear back into the mountains - with one group holding out the tantalizing prospect of once again seeing the son from whom Shan has been separated for many years. In a baffling situation where nothing is what it appears to be, where the FBI, high ranking Beijing officials, the long hidden monks, and the almost forgotten history of the region all pull him in different directions, Shan finds his devotion to the truth sorely tested. Traveling from Tibet to Beijing to the U.S., he must find the links between murder on two continents, a high profile art theft, and an enigmatic, long-missing figure from history Eliot Pattison's Beautiful Ghosts.

Every reader can connect to the themes of this book. In Dancing Around Jericho's Walls, I present three phases we face, when we deal with a crisis. First, there is Sunset, when hope is lost. Then, there is The Darkest Hour, when our senses see the darkness but our faith knows light is coming. Finally, there is Sunrise. In this book, I study each phase through the eyes of 10 Bible examples, such as Moses facing Pharaoh, Joshua facing Jericho, Jonah facing the whale, the hungry facing Christ, the apostles facing threats to their lives, and more. In each phase, you will feel their struggle and identify with their conflict, as you step with them toward Sunrise. Included is also MANY quotes from Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Hellen Keller, J. P. Morgan, Charles Schwab, Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and John F Kennedy.
