How would your life change if you knew in your bones God looks on you not with disappointment or anger, but with joyous love and delight? Jasona Brown understands, through personal experience and years of ministering to others, how a wall of stones can block our heart from receiving God's love for us and cause us to live a stunted Christian life. With Stone by Stone Jasona will help you identify and remove ten stones possibly obstructing your intimacy with God-including guilt, unforgiveness, lies, and unhealed memories-so you can delight in the joy of knowing God's love for you as his beloved son or daughter.
An important study not only of the geological structure of Egypt and the mineral composition of its rocks, but also of ancient Egyptian stone quarries. Illustrated with almost 500 photographs and diagrams, microscopic sections and electronic scans, as well as colour photographs of all the types of stone discussed, the detailed descriptions of the quarries and numerous examples of quarrying and masonry techniques make this book an indispensable tool for the provenancing of museum exhibits. Originally published in German in 1993, this edition has been updated to take account of new research, and a new chapter on the building stones of the western oases has been added. Archaeologists, Egyptologists and travellers to Egypt will find a wealth of fascinating information on ancient quarrying equipment, working methods and transport in ancient Egypt, as well as an introduction to the geology and mineralogy of the Nile valley and the surrounding desert regions.
There once may have been 250,000 miles of stone walls in America's Northeast, stretching farther than the distance to the moon. They took three billion man-hours to build. And even though most are crumbling today, they contain a magnificent scientific and cultural story-about the geothermal forces that formed their stones, the tectonic movements that brought them to the surface, the glacial tide that broke them apart, the earth that held them for so long, and about the humans who built them. Stone walls layer time like Russian dolls, their smallest elements reflecting the longest spans, and Thorson urges us to study them, for each stone has its own story. Linking geological history to the early American experience, Stone by Stone presents a fascinating picture of the land the Pilgrims settled, allowing us to see and understand it with new eyes.
A masterpiece of postwar Polish literature, Stone Upon Stone is Wieslaw Mysliwski's grand epic in the rural tradition — a profound and irreverent stream of memory cutting through the rich and varied terrain of one man’s connection to the land, to his family and community, to women, to tradition, to God, to death, and to what it means to be alive. Wise and impetuous, plainspoken and compassionate Szymek, recalls his youth in their village, his time as a guerrilla soldier, as a wedding official, barber, policeman, lover, drinker, and caretaker for his invalid brother. Filled with interwoven stories and voices, by turns hilarious and moving, Szymek’s narrative exudes the profound wisdom of one who has suffered, yet who loves life to the very core.
Stone Upon Stone: Psalms of Remembrance is a collection of poetry inspired by the Book of Psalms and other passages of Scripture. This collection of seventy-six poems is divided into four sections, each of which contains an introductory scripture, quotation or dedication. In "Seasons of the Soul," the first section, I express my appreciation for the beauty of Nature and comment on God's handiwork. "In the Vernacular" contains a number of dialect poems, revealing influences of Paul Laurence Dunbar, but they are written in more contemporary black speech. This section also features blues poetry, another form of African American poetry offered from my spiritual perspective. "Golden Moments" are reflective works inspired, in part, by a statement of Saint Augustine: "To contemplate the truth and to share the fruits of that contemplation." The final section, "Psalms of Remembrance," are recollections from childhood and beyond and songs of celebration of the goodness of God. May these poems that overflow from the depths of my heart inspire all those who read them. May they resound with love, joy, and peace and reflection of the manifold wisdom of God.

He is the Human Riff, guitarist with The Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in the World – and a man of Wildean sagacity and trenchancy… ‘I wouldn’t warm to Chuck Berry if he was cremated next to me.’ ‘I’ve never had problems with drugs. Only with policemen.’ On Elton John singing ‘Candle in the Wind’: ‘Writes songs for dead blondes.’ ‘Rolling Stones, I have a question: will this be your last tour?’ Keith Richards: ‘Yes, and the next five.’ On Ronnie Wood: ‘I’ve known him stoned out of his brain, and I’ve known him straight sober. Quite honestly, there’s very little difference.’ ‘The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father, I snorted my father. He was cremated and I couldn't resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow. My dad wouldn't have cared. It went down pretty well and I'm still alive.’ On having shot Ronnie Wood's budgerigar in its cage: ‘Sorry, Ronnie - I didn't think it was real.’ Mark Blake is the author of Pigs Might Fly: The Inside Story of Pink Floyd (Aurum 2007), and a contributing editor of Mojo and Q magazines. He lives in Croydon.
Stone maps the force, vivacity, and stories within our most mundane matter, stone. For too long stone has served as an unexamined metaphor for the “really real”: blunt factuality, nature's curt rebuke. Yet, medieval writers knew that stones drop with fire from the sky, emerge through the subterranean lovemaking of the elements, tumble along riverbeds from Eden, partner with the masons who build worlds with them. Such motion suggests an ecological enmeshment and an almost creaturely mineral life. Although geological time can leave us reeling, Jeffrey Jerome Cohen argues that stone's endurance is also an invitation to apprehend the world in other than human terms. Never truly inert, stone poses a profound challenge to modernity's disenchantments. Its agency undermines the human desire to be separate from the environment, a bifurcation that renders nature “out there,” a mere resource for recreation, consumption, and exploitation. Written with great verve and elegance, this pioneering work is notable not only for interweaving the medieval and the modern but also as a major contribution to ecotheory. Comprising chapters organized by concept —“Geophilia,” “Time,” “Force,” and “Soul”—Cohen seamlessly brings together a wide range of topics including stone's potential to transport humans into nonanthropocentric scales of place and time, the “petrification” of certain cultures, the messages fossils bear, the architecture of Bordeaux and Montparnasse, Yucca Mountain and nuclear waste disposal, the ability of stone to communicate across millennia in structures like Stonehenge, and debates over whether stones reproduce and have souls. Showing that what is often assumed to be the most lifeless of substances is, in its own time, restless and forever in motion,Stone fittingly concludes by taking us to Iceland?a land that, writes the author, “reminds us that stone like water is alive, that stone like water is transient.”
Explains the different ways that stone can be shaped into art, and presents pictures of valued artifacts made from stone.
Stone challenges the simple opposition of philosophy and art . . . In a style that has the directness of sculpture. ÑJohn Llewelyn The relation of our vision of stone's beauty to what we say, think, and write about stone, about the way in which such vision can both empower and interrupt language, Is radiantly revealed in Stone. In an elegant and provocative text enhanced by photographs, John Sallis takes up the various guises and settings in which stone appears: In wild nature, In shelter against the elements, In the tombstones of the Jewish cemetery in Prague, In Greek temples and gothic cathedrals, and in sculpture and drama. Stone is critically attentive not only to what certain philosophers such as Hegel and Heidegger have said of beauty and of stone, but also to what they have written on their travels To The Alps, To the great cathedrals of Europe, or To The temples of Greece. Oriented throughout to various sites where the terrestrial beauty of stone shines forth, Stone draws increasingly toward theatrical presentation, toward theatre of stone.
Stone Steele: Lead guitarist of Pandemic Sorrow. International rock star. World famous cock star. The kind of man every woman fantasizes about, but knows better than to get involved with—which is just the way Stone likes it. After all, a dressing room full of groupies, Viagra, and love don’t exactly mesh. So when Phoenix Savage, the secret love child of an aging rocker, is thrown in with the guys of Pandemic Sorrow, she has no problem giving each and every one of them a middle finger. Insults fly and beers cans are thrown until Phoenix sees a little chink in Stone’s rock star armor. What happens when two headstrong rockers are thrown together against their will? What happens when rock stars break into a penguin exhibit? In a world where the motto is: sex, drugs, and Rock n’Roll, Can these two rockers last longer than a One-hit wonder?
This spectacular book brings together work made by Andy Goldsworthy in Britain, France, the United States, Australia and Japan between 1990 and 1993. It includes works that involve not only stone of various kinds slate, limestone, sandstone, river boulders but also leaves, flowers, sand, clay and scrap steel. A riverside slab of rock in St Louis, Missouri, glows with the colours of autumn leaves, becomes part of a wall, acquires an overall covering of green leaves, and is cradled in a nest of branches. In a forest in the Lake District, a wall snakes its way through the trees. Sandstone arches progress across the floor of a Dumfriesshire quarry. A dead tree in the Australian outback is miraculously clothed in rust-red sand Stone: Andy Goldsworthy offers an unparalleled opportunity to appreciate the extraordinary breadth of the artists output and to understand more about this exceptionally talented sculptor whose work is accorded worldwide recognition.
