No Longer Human by Osamu Dazai


Original Title: No Longer Human

The poignant and fascinating story of a young man who is caught between the breakup of the traditions of a northern Japanese aristocratic family and the impact of Western ideas. Portraying himself as a failure, the protagonist of Osamu Dazai's No Longer Human narrates a seemingly normal life even while he feels himself incapable of understanding human beings. Oba Yozo's attempts to reconcile himself to the world around him begin in early childhood, continue through high school, where he becomes a "clown" to mask his alienation, and eventually lead to a failed suicide attempt as an adult. Without sentimentality, he records the casual cruelties of life and its fleeting moments of human connection and tenderness.

Night Comes by Dale C. Allison Jr.


Original Title: Night Comes

A deeply personal take on the mystery of what lies beyond death When he was 23 years old, Dale Allison almost died in a car accident. As a result of this experience, his ideas about death and the hereafter changed dramatically. In Night Comes Allison wrestles with big questions concerning the last things -- What happens to us after we die? Why does death so often terrify us? Armed with his acknowledged expertise in historical, theological, and biblical scholarship, Allison offers an engaging, personal exploration of such themes as death and fear, resurrection and judgment, and hell and heaven, discussing all these in light of modern science, Scripture, the history of doctrine, and his own experience. As he ponders, explains, criticizes, and creatively imagines -- engaging throughout with biblical texts, church fathers, rabbinic scholars, poets, and philosophers -- Allison offers fascinating fare that will captivate many a reader's heart and soul.

Original Title: Origen Introduction 1 The Making Of A Scholar And Theologian 2 The Mature Years At Alexandria 3 Man Of The Church At Caesarea 4 A Controversial Legacy

Origen was the most influential Christian theologian before Augustine, the founder of Biblical study as a serious discipline in the Christian tradition, and a figure with immense influence on the development of Christian spirituality. This volume presents a comprehensive and accessible insight into Origen's life and writings. An introduction analyzes the principal influences that formed him as a Christian and as a thinker, his emergence as a mature theologian at Alexandria, his work in Caesarea and his controversial legacy. Fresh translations of a representative selection of Origen's writings, including some never previously available in print, show how Origen provided a lasting framework for Christian theology by finding through study of the Bible a coherent understanding of God's saving plan.
