Book Description :

Jennifer Knapp’s meteoric rise in the Christian music industry ended abruptly when she walked away and came out publicly as a lesbian. This is her story—of coming to Christ, of building a career, of admitting who she is, and of how her faith remained strong through it all. At the top of her career in the Christian music industry, Jennifer Knapp quit. A few years later, she publicly revealed she is gay. A media frenzy ensued, and many of her former fans were angry with what they saw as turning her back on God. But through it all, she held on to the truth that had guided her from the beginning. In this memoir, she finally tells her story: of her troubled childhood, the love of music that pulled her through, her dramatic conversion to Christianity, her rise to stardom, her abrupt departure from Christian Contemporary Music, her years of trying to come to terms with her sexual orientation, and her return to music and Nashville in 2010, when she came out publicly for the first time. She also talks about the importance of her faith, and despite the many who claim she can no longer call herself a believer, she maintains that she is both gay and a Christian. Now an advocate for LGBT issues in the church, Jennifer has witnessed heartbreaking struggles as churches wrestle with issues of homosexuality and faith. This engrossing, inspiring memoir will help people understand her story and to believe in their own stories, whatever they may be.

Book Description :

Facing the Music investigates the practices and ideas that have grown from some five decades of cultural diversity in music education, developments in ethnomusicology, and the rise of 'world music'. Speaking from rich, hands-on experience of more than thirty years at various levels of music education (music in schools, community organizations and professional training courses), Huib Schippers makes a powerful case for the crucial role of learning music in shaping rich and diverse musical environments for the 21st century, both in practical terms and at a conceptual level: "what we hear is the product of what we believe about music." Advocating a contemporary, positive and realistic approach to cultural diversity in music education and transmission, Schippers advocates taking into account and celebrating the natural dynamics of music. He argues that "most music travels remarkably well", and regards every musical act as an expression of the 'here and now', as do many of the musicians and scholars he quotes. In this way, he challenges stifling directives to recreate 'authentic contexts', which in fact constantly change (and have always changed) in the cultures of origin as well. This liberates music educators to seek with integrity appropriate ways of presenting music at all levels of education: in schools, community settings, and professional training. In seven succinct chapters that each approach the issues from a different angle, Schippers gradually unfolds the complexities of learning and teaching music 'out of context' in an accessible manner, and presents a coherent model to approach these, as well as lucid suggestions for translating the resulting ideas in practice. While mapping the various factors that determine all acts of music transmission, he also comes to surprising insights into the nature and preconceptions underlying much formal music education settings across the world, including those focusing on western classical music. Facing the Music provides a rich resource for reflection and practice for all those involved in teaching and learning music, from policy maker to classroom teacher.

Book Description :

Facing the Music is a book about worship leading. But it is also a book about much more than just the act of leading or the theory of leadership. It dives deep into the calling, spirit and motivation of the worship leader. It invites us to move beyond "singing the song" and towards "becoming the song." It speaks of worship not as something we do, but rather something we are. It celebrates a lifestyle of worship and leads us to a level of transparency and intimacy before Jesus Christ. Facing the Music may challenge your preconceptions about worship leading-it may make you uncomfortable about some things. But in the end, the call, as A.W. Tozer once said, to "Take worship out of the hands of man and place it in the hands of God where it belongs," rings loud and clear throughout its passages. Dr. Robert Dusek is the Worship and Arts Pastor at Centerpoint Community Church in Arvada, Colorado. Prior to being called to the ministry, Dr. Dusek toured as a concert pianist and had several of his compositions and performances published and recorded. His passion now is for a rebirth of authenticity and transparency in the worship of God, and to that end he has worked with and coached several Denver area praise teams and has been a proponent of multi-church praise and worship gatherings. Robert lives at home with his wife whom he loves and his dog whom he tolerates.

Book Description :

A lively, captivating story set in the Glastonbury Festival that will appeal to all fans of contemporary fiction, especially festival goers, music lovers and those interested in family relationships. The release of the book coincides with the start of the festival season this June. Facing the Music is a vibrant, uplifting novel that will transport readers to the very heart of the Glastonbury Festival, setting their pulses racing from the start. Without moving from their seats, readers will be swept up by the crowds and immersed in the sights and sounds of this extraordinary event, soaking up the atmosphere, absorbing the energy and experiencing the rain, the mud and the toilets. Readers will explore Glastonbury with the central character, Gary Cochrane, whose rebellious teenagers are straining to break free and assert their independence. Gary is a single parent who is desperate to cling onto his children, but he’s hiding a secret that starts to force them apart. He made a pledge and he intends to keep it - but the festival has a way of exposing the truth, and Gary is no longer master of his own fate... This page-turning novel explores family relationships, love, loss and betrayal. Facing the Music is a vivid portrayal of Glastonbury itself: an iconic festival that, once a year, turns a sleepy valley in the south west of England into a small city; a non-stop festival of lights, colour and noise; a festival bursting with excitement and surprises, with the power to change a life forever. Tim Thorogood’s influences include contemporary novelists such as Nick Hornby, David Nicholls and SJ Watson. He plans to donate half of all profits to the three charities that Glastonbury currently supports - Greenpeace, Water Aid and Oxfam. Readers’ comments – “very evocative”, “really nails Glastonbury”, “I liked the mix of darkness and humour”, “it made the whole Glastonbury experience come to life”.

Book Description :

Facing the Music, Larry Brown’s first book, was originally published in 1988 to wide critical acclaim. As the St. Petersburg Times review pointed out, the central theme of these ten stories “is the ageless collision of man with woman, woman with man--with the frequent introduction of that other familiar couple, drinking and violence. Most often ugly, love is nevertheless graceful, however desperate the situation.” There’s some glare from the brutally bright light Larry Brown shines on his subjects. This is the work of a writer unafraid to gaze directly at characters challenged by crisis and pathology. But for readers who are willing to look, unblinkingly, along with the writer, there are unusual rewards.

Book Description :

Julian Rush is a United Methodist minister who served churches in Dallas, Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs for 17 years until his suppressed homosexual orientation surfaced. With Julian's acknowledgement of his sexuality, in the early '80s, First United Methodist Church of Boulder decided he was no longer suitable to minister to the congregation and chose to stop paying his salary. Julian's situation with the Boulder church and United Methodism became widely publicized as the denomination continued to grapple with the issue of homosexuality. This is Julian's own record of his struggles with being unacknowledged as a gay child, his religion, family and community both before and after the discovery of his orientation and the reaction of those his life has touched. These include persons who are non-gay but supportive, gays and lesbians who are out, non-supportive persons, and an outpouring of pain and suffering from those closeted people who could not reveal themselves. Through a tortuous journey, Julian continues to discover his niche in communities that can benefit from his ministry. He last served as Executive Director for the Colorado AIDS Project as an appointed United Methodist minister. This is the story of how it all began.

Book Description :

Dissertation im Fachbereich Nordamerikanische Literatur und Kultur der Universität des Saarlandes. The Implosion of Negativity ist die erste Monografie zu Paul Austers Frühwerk. Bis 1980 betätigte sich Auster zehn Jahre lang fast ausschließlich als Lyriker, um danach nie wieder ein Gedicht zu veröffentlichen. The Implosion of Negativity versucht zu ergründen, wie es zu diesem Bruch kam, und analysiert detailliert Austers poetisches Vorleben. Dabei werden bislang unbeachtete Einflüsse wie Martin Buber und Paul Celan zutage gefördert. Die abschließende Untersuchung von The New York Trilogy zeigt exemplarisch, welche neuen interpretatorischen Ansätze die Kenntnis von Austers vergessenem Frühwerk ermöglicht: Der untote Lyriker wird zum Phantom, das unablässig Austers Romane heimsucht – und antreibt. Die Dissertation The Implosion of Negativity ist in englischer Sprache verfasst. Der Anhang enthält eine deutsche Zusammenfassung, eine umfassende Bibliographie und ein persönliches Interview mit Paul Auster. Englischer Klappentext: For most readers and critics Paul Auster’s oeuvre begins with The New York Trilogy, yet his major success as a novelist was preceded by a decade of almost obsessive devotion to poetry. The Implosion of Negativity is the first book-length study of Paul Auster’s early work. From his dense, intensely lyric sequences of the early 1970s to the more discursive style of Auster’s final book of poems, Facing the Music (1980), and on to his experimental prose of the early eighties, The Implosion of Negativity traces a fascinating journey through the author’s formative years. Andreas Hau’s dissertation begins with a detailed analysis of Auster’s early long poem “Unearth”, examines overlooked influences such as Paul Celan and Martin Buber, and continues with Auster’s exploration of his Jewish heritage in Wall Writing, his rediscovery of the American objectivists in “Disappearances”, and his encounters with the visual arts in Fragments from Cold. Subsequent chapters investigate Auster’s eventual break with the lyric form and the transitional phase of “genreless” prose in White Spaces and The Invention of Solitude. The Implosion of Negativity closes with a re-examination of The New York Trilogy in the light of Auster’s obscure early oeuvre and exemplifies how the undead poet has become the negative force that haunts – and fuels – Paul Auster’s novels to date. “I remain very attached to the poetry I wrote,” says Auster, “I still stand by it. In the final analysis, it could even be the best work I’ve ever done.” The Implosion of Negativity sheds new light on the genesis of one of America’s foremost writers. The appendix contains a comprehensive bibliography and a personal interview with Paul Auster.

Book Description :

Music is performed, reproduced, and heard differently today as a result of twentieth-century technology. A new consideration of these changes is a practical and cultural necessity. In Conditions of Music, Alan Durant extends Deryck Cooke’s Language of Music, placing the insights of Cooke into a much wider sociological and historical framework. Conditions of Music provides a basis for detailed commentary and criticism of music. Unlike literature and painting, around which illuminating critical techniques and theories have developed, little common ground exists for music criticism. The appraisal argument adopted here implies a major revision of accepted ways of thinking about contemporary directions of music.

Book Description :

Life is full of trials and adversity and such trials and adversity often poses a challenge for a person at times when that person least expects it. Byron Smith began experiencing some of life’s trials and adversity prior to his high school graduation which was supposed to be a time a triumph. As a teenager he found himself embattled against adults who were supposed to be mentors and role models in his life. Little did Byron know that the unjust encounter was the first of several encounters to come. Early on Byron responded angrily to adversity but then he began to find solace in an unlikely source, music. He used music to help himself cope and navigate through trying times. After completing college Byron embraced the concept of dealing with adversity with intelligence, tact, and diplomacy. In his story he details how he prescribes certain songs for himself when he needs comforting. He also shares his observations of how music has a different affect on today’s youth because they are not listening to prescription music but are bombarding their ears and brain cells with poisonous music that desensitizes them and diminishes their desire to use intelligence, tact, and diplomacy to battle adversity.
