In 1967, Yvor Winters wrote of Helen Pinkerton, “she is a master of poetic style and of her material. No poet in English writes with more authority.” Unfortunately, in 1967 mastery of poetic style was not, by and large, considered a virtue, and Pinkerton's finely crafted poems were neglected in favor of more improvisational and flashier talents. Though her work won the attention and praise of serious readers, who tracked her poems as they appeared in such journals as The Paris Review, The Sewanee Review, and The Southern Review, her verse has never been available in a trade book. Taken in Faith remedies that situation, bringing Pinkerton's remarkable poems to a general audience for the first time. Even her very earliest works embody a rare depth and seriousness. Primarily lyrical and devotional, they always touch on larger issues of human struggle and conduct. More recent poems, concerned in part with history, exhibit a stylistic as well as a thematic shift, moving away from the rhymed forms of her devotional works into a blank verse marked by a quiet flexibility and contemplative grace. Like Virginia Adair, another poet who waited long for proper recognition, Pinkerton speaks as a woman who has lived fully and observed acutely and who has set the life and observations down in memorable verse. Taken in Faith represents a half-century of her poetic efforts.

For all accounts and purposes the life of one dog shouldn't make that much of a difference, but this life did. Faith's life began without hope and without love. Having been rescued by Reuben Stringfellow at the age of three weeks, Faith's life took a dramatic turn. Completely unable to function as a normal dog, it was up to the Stringfellow family to create in Faith a means to function as best she could. This is the definitive book on the life of Faith the Dog. Her life story is one for the history books. In fact, her story appears in scholastic text books in several countries! Courage, perseverance, dogged-determination, and a generally great disposition is what it took for Faith to become who and what she is today: "A Modern Day Miracle".

In spite of a diving accident that has left her paralyzed for more than thirty years, Joni Eareckson Tada has been able to build a life of faith and purpose. The peace she has found as she confronts the painful realities of life as a quadriplegic has made her a hero to many people. In Ordinary People, Extraordinary Faith, Joni lets us know who her heroes are. Inside she tells the stories of people who inspire her with their faith and courage. Although Joni has met many famous "heroes of the faith" through her ministry, the lives she shares here are not the Billy Grahams of the world. They are a mother, a housewife, a nursing home resident, a child. Some are missionaries or pastors; others are bank tellers or data entry clerks. All of these people have touched Joni's life and the lives of others as they found their faith rise to the occasion – to forgive an assailant, to find strength despite the debilitating effects of cerebral palsy, to choose love in the face of racial prejudice, and to discover in the midst of questioning that God Himself is the answer to all questions.

The Elementary Doctrines of Christ takes its title directly from Hebrews 6:1-2. These two verses of scripture contain the six tenets of Christianity. The Christian faith couldn't stand without one of them. You could term them the irreducible minimum of the Christian faith. Whoever would like to live a full practicing Christian life would have to accept and do these in his life. The order in which they are given to us in the scriptures is their order of occurence in the life of a Christian. The book is excellent for those who have recently put their faith in Jesus Christ. However, older Christians who have not come across these tenets will be tremendouly blessed by reading and understanding them. Curious inquirers who would like to know what Christians believe would find this book precise and invaluable.

In a critical dialogue with the metaphysical tradition from Plato to Hegel to contemporary schools of thought, the author convincingly argues that traditional rationalist metaphysics has failed to accomplish its goal of demonstrating the existence of a divine cause and moral purpose of the world. To replace the defective rationalist metaphysics, the author builds a new metaphysics on the idea that moods and affects make manifest the world's felt meanings; he argues that each feature of the world is a felt meaning in the sense that each feature is a source of a feeling-response, if and when it appears. The author asserts that we must synthesize our two ways of knowing-poetic evocations and exact analyses-in order to decide which mood or affect is the appropriate appreciation of any given feature of the world. Smith gives evocative and exact explications of such features as the world's temporality, appearance, and mind-independency, as these features appear in the appropriate recitations.

Jesus, Author of Our Faith, is a book centered on Jesus and based on sermons Tozer preached from the final chapters of the letter to the Hebrews. The author's intention, from chapter to chapter, is to underscore the necessity of an active, abiding faith in Jesus Christ—only in that way can we please God. This book is a companion volume to Jesus, Our Man in Glory, which is based on the earlier chapters of Hebrews. Together, the two books examine most of the important emphases in that significant Letter. They do so in Tozer's inimitable style and with his incisive expression.
