During a life that spanned ninety years, Katherine Anne Porter (1890-1980) witnessed dramatic and intensely debated changes in the gender roles of American women. Mary Titus draws upon unpublished Porter papers, as well as newly available editions of her early fiction, poetry, and reviews, to trace Porter’s shifting and complex response to those cultural changes. Titus shows how Porter explored her own ambivalence about gender and creativity, for she experienced firsthand a remarkable range of ideas concerning female sexuality. These included the Victorian attitudes of the grandmother who raised her; the sexual license of revolutionary Mexico, 1920s New York, and 1930s Paris; and the conservative, ordered attitudes of the Agrarians. Throughout Porter’s long career, writes Titus, she “repeatedly probed cultural arguments about female creativity, a woman’s maternal legacy, romantic love, and sexual identity, always with startling acuity, and often with painful ambivalence.” Much of her writing, then, serves as a medium for what Titus terms Porter’s “gender-thinking”--her sustained examination of the interrelated issues of art, gender, and identity. Porter, says Titus, rebelled against her upbringing yet never relinquished the belief that her work as an artist was somehow unnatural, a turn away from the essential identity of woman as “the repository of life,” as childbearer. In her life Porter increasingly played a highly feminized public role as southern lady, but in her writing she continued to engage changing representations of female identity and sexuality. This is an important new study of the tensions and ambivalence inscribed in Porter’s fiction, as well as the vocational anxiety and gender performance of her actual life.

An instructional book told in narrative style, The Coffee Shop that Changed a Church: Discovering the Net Effect is as engaging as any good fiction. Author Steve Parr has emerged as a respected voice in communicating the true dynamics of churches that thrive in reaching and making disciples. His ideas are not only theoretical; he led a ministry that baptized over 1500 people in fourteen years. Parr's story follows Mitch Walker, fresh out of seminary, as he struggles to find his way as the new pastor of a small and aging congregation. After two years, the ambitious pastor realizes he is a shepherd whose flock is content with grazing alone out in the pasture-that is, until a chance encounter with a neighboring pastor turns his ministry upside down. The experienced pastor offers to meet regularly with Mitch at a nearby coffee shop to share his innovative strategies for leading an evangelism movement, called the Net Effect. The story flows between Mitch's successes in helping the church become more outwardly focused, the resistance he faces from key leaders, and the lessons he learns from the six essentials of the Net Effect. Through Mitch's successes and failures, readers learn how to apply key practices for helping a church become intentionally evangelistic and thus more healthy and vibrant. Evangelistic effectiveness, leadership tools, and the importance of relationships are presented as Parr creatively weaves together drama, humor, and instruction. More specific topics include leadership, personal evangelism, proclamation evangelism, evangelism through small groups, and servant evangelism. Dr. Parr crafted this book not only for pastors, but also for deacons, Bible study leaders, staff members, and church members who hold any leadership role within the church. In a fresh and entertaining format, The Coffee Shop that Changed a Church inspires, equips, and motivates readers to reach out and make disciples for Jesus Christ.

A fascinating study of how politics are manoeuvred, campaigns run and elections managed in the largest democracy in the world. Essential reading for anyone seeking to understand Uttar Pradesh and its politics Between March 2011 and March 2012, Manish Tiwari and Rajan Pandey travelled across Uttar Pradesh, by bike, jeep, bus and train, covering more than 15,000 kilometres and 350 constituencies in over 60 districts – in an effort to witness the prelude to the 2012 assembly elections, and capture the grassroots reality of India’s most politically significant state. The authors narrate untold stories and anecdotes of UP politics and give a ringside view of these watershed elections, which saw the end of Mayawati’s rule, the drubbing of the Congress, which had pinned its hopes on the Gandhi charisma, and the rise of a new star in the form of Akhilesh Yadav. They are witness to events as they unfold in the remotest corners of UP. At the same time, they also investigate the specifics of the socio-political climate in Uttar Pradesh at what is, arguably, a turning point in the state’s history, caught as it is between the politics of caste and the politics of class, the politics of goonda-gardi and corruption and the voting public’s increasingly vocal refusal to put up with it, the need for development and its almost unbearable human costs. Coming up to the present, the book takes an objective look at Akhilesh Yadav’s first six months in power and whether it has really been a change for the better. Part gonzo-journalism, part ethnography, Battleground UP: Politics in the Land of Ram is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand Uttar Pradesh and its politics.
