Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Title Unveiling Eve is the first feminist inquiry into the Hebrew poetry and prose forms cultivated in Muslim and Christian Spain, Italy, and Provence in the eleventh through fourteenth centuries. In the Jewish Middle Ages, writing was an exclusively male competence, and textual institutions such as the study of scripture, mysticism, philosophy, and liturgy were men's sanctuaries from which women were banished. These domains of male expertise—alongside belles lettres, on which Rosen's book focuses—served as virtual laboratories for experimenting with concepts of femininity and masculinity, hetero- and homosexuality, feminization and virilization, transvestism and transsexuality. Reviewing texts as varied as love lyric, love stories, marriage debates, rhetorical contests, and liturgical and moralistic pieces, Tova Rosen considers the positions and positioning of female figures and female voices within Jewish male discourse. The idolization and demonization of women present in these texts is read here against the background of scripture and rabbinic literature as well as the traditions of chivalry and misogyny in the hosting Islamic and Christian cultures. Unveiling Eve unravels the literary evidence of a patriarchal tradition in which women are routinely rendered nonentities, often positioned as abstractions without bodies or reified as bodies without subjectivities. Without rigidly following any one school of feminist thinking, Rosen creatively employs a variety of methodologies to describe and assess the texts' presentation of male sexual politics and delineate how women and concepts of gender were manipulated, fictionalized, fantasized, and poeticized. Inaugurating a new era of critical thinking in Hebrew literature, Unveiling Eve penetrates a field of medieval literary scholarship that has, until now, proven impervious to feminist criticism.

Have you ever wondered where you are in life? You realize that there is more to life than what meets the eye, and yet you find that you are not where you want to be. Realizing and acknowledging your true reflection in the mirror can be either a beautiful or a devastating experience, depending upon one's perspective. However, it takes courage to confront the issues and responsibilities of oneself while not casting the blame onto others because of our own ignorance and lack of knowledge. One can go through life wondering and searching, trying to understand how to get to that place. Sometimes it appears as though one is going around in circles trying to understand how we fit into this world. What is my real purpose for being on this earth? Well, the Word of God tells us that God has predestined our lives before the foundations of the world. Then the question remains of how do we get to the place that God has purposed for each of us in this preordained plan?

The author is convinced that the early Byzantine Church deliberately cut out sections from an historic text to conceal the truth about the crucifixion of a man they were promoting as their Messiah. She solves the mystery by reconstructing the deleted sections. King pieces together what happened in Jerusalem during the trial and attempted crucifixion of the real Messiah and shows that the key passages that were tampered with are actually the missing link that connects the Dead Sea Scrolls to the New Testament Gospels. Using those passags and the history of the period, she identifies the figures mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The ‘theoretical turn’ within the arts and humanities in the 1970s and 1980s has, for many, had its day, with work produced under its rubric all too often feeling tired or even downright lazy. In its place - whilst hazarding against an outright rejection of theory - this book, introduced by Mieke Bal, presents work by a new generation of scholars responding directly to Bal’s idea of the ‘travelling concept’. By taking a concept from one discipline and, with a genuine understanding of its origin, thoughtfully applying this in a new context, exciting new possibilities are opened up for analysis of artworks and other cultural objects. Here we find these ‘travelling concepts’ employed in fresh explorations of subjects as diverse as the paintings of Poussin and of Adam Elsheimer; Chantal Akerman’s film; the Museum of the French Revolution and the work of German Jewish painter Charlotte Salomon. This is a uniquely illuminating contribution to the edgy territorial conflicts between visual culture, art history and cultural studies.

Pretense Unveiled is a true account of the emotional, physical, and sexual abuse that eight children endured during the late 1950s–70s, told through the eyes of the oldest girl, Bella Lorne. Before any substantial healing took place in her own life, she faced many years of an abusive marriage to Jimmie Gore. Mental and physical abuse plagued the eleven-year union and was made worse by the adoption of a foreign child who got caught in the web. Determination to rescue her six smaller siblings from the pedophilia and violence constantly compelled her. Ever aware of God’s abiding grace, she conquered mountains and valleys but only after stepping boldly into the truth of God’s Word. First, though, there were nightmares to face. Would the adopted daughter ever be honest or pure? Would Jimmie ever grow up? Bella learned the hardest way possible that survival depended on truth rather than pretense.
