André Gide

"Strait is the Gate," first published in 1909 in France as "La Porte etroite," is a novel about the failure of love in the face of the narrowness of the moral philosophy of Protestantism. --- Andre Gide (1869 - 1951) was a French author and winner of the Nobel Prize in literature in 1947. Gide's career spanned from the symbolist movement to the advent of anticolonialism in between the two World Wars. Gide's work can be seen as an investigation of freedom and empowerment in the face of moralistic and puritan constraints, and gravitates around his continuous effort to achieve intellectual honesty. His self-exploratory texts reflect his search of how to be fully oneself, without at the same time betraying one's values... --- "For Gide was very different from the picture most people had of him. He was the very reverse of an aesthete, and, as a writer, had nothing in common with the doctrine of art for art's sake. He was a man deeply involved in a specific struggle, a specific fight, who never wrote a line which he did not think was of service to the cause he had at heart." (Francois Mauriac)"

André Gide

A landmark in world literature, Strait is the Gait describes a love affair-between an acutely sensitive boy growing up in Paris and his cousin from the countryside-that erupts into a soul-endangering passion. Jeroime Palissier spends many summers in rural Normandy, where the whole world seems ''steeped in azure,'' at the house of his uncle. He falls in love with his uncle's daughter, Alissa, and she with him, but as his ardor ascends to precarious heights, Alissa decides that the only way to save Jerome is to suppress everything that is beautiful in herself-in both mind and body. A devastating exploration of aestheticism taken to extremes, Strait is the Gate is a novel of haunting beauty that stimulates the mind and the emotions.

Dr. Xavier T. Carter Sr.

The Reverend Dr. Xavier Trone Carter, Sr. During his last thirty-eight years of practicing preaching—thirty-one of them as a pastor in preparation—Dr. Carter has striven to “manifest the Incarnate Word by the spoken word, from the written word.” In those years he joined with some of the greatest and most courageous preachers of our time who have devoted their lives to the pursuit of truth over tradition, good over evil and salvation over sin. However, unlike his predecessors, Dr. Carter, a brilliant Educator, Author, Pastor and Teacher, made the decisive-decision to take traditional Christian practices to the next level. His theories have provoked controversy in the local Church for well over thirty years. With the publishing of “Revealing the Hidden Hope: Entering in at the Strait Gate, Through the Doorway to an Already Decided Destiny” he now seeks to alter the course of human events in Christendom by painting a literal portrait of what it means to apprehend and adhere to the Principles of God, with the full expectation of enjoying the Promises of God, while we yet live. James Francis Brooks, Senior Pastor Lily Baptist Church, Tarrant City, Alabama By precept and example this book is a literal road map of how to get from where you are to where you desire to go; that is from earth’s sorrow to heaven’s joy, while you yet live. Dr. Carter has pulled no punches: he calls a spade a spade and sin by its right name, letting the chips fall where they may. By following his directions any believer can apprehend and adhere to the Divine Order of Authority in this world and subsequently enjoy the promises of God. It’s all a matter of “belief plus action, commonly known as faith.” Dorothy Collins Publisher and Editor of the Lily Light Lily Baptist Church, Tarrant City, Alabama

Daniel Jütte (Jutte)

Exploring a chapter in the cultural history of the West not yet probed, The Strait Gate demonstrates how doors, gates, and related technologies such as the key and the lock have shaped the way we perceive and navigate the domestic and urban spaces that surround us in our everyday lives. Jütte reveals how doors have served as sites of power, exclusion, and inclusion, as well as metaphors for salvation in the course of Western history. More than any other parts of the house, doors are objects onto which we project our ideas of, and anxieties about, security, privacy, and shelter. Drawing on a wide range of archival, literary, and visual sources, as well as on research literature across various disciplines and languages, this book pays particular attention to the history of the practices that have developed over the centuries in order to handle and control doors in everyday life.

Hannah More

The first part, “Bear Ye One Another’s Burdens,” is about helping your neighbor. All people are portrayed as having a burden but individuals who help each other make their own burden manageable. The “secret packet,” or the black part of the burden, written in indelible ink, is concealed at all cost and gives extra weight to the burden. The second part, “The Strait Gate and the Broad Way,” is an allegory of the parable of “The Ten Virgins” with their lamps in Matthew 25; cautioning people to be ready. It is combined with the parable of “The Narrow and Broad Gates” of Matthew 7:13, which speaks of not being weighed down with things of this world. Original title: Bear Ye One Another’s Burdens: The Valley of Tears: A Vision. The Strait Gate and the Broad Way: Being the Second Part of the Valley of Tears.

Plainly proving, by the Scriptures, that not only the rude and profane, but many great professors, will come short of that kingdom: with directions how and why every one should strive to enter in. "Enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."- Matthew 7:13, 14

Louis A. Kelsch

Written with the enthusiasm of missionary zeal and the goal to deter people from the “wide gate,” Enter Ye in at the Strait Gate presents the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as taught by the Mormons. Author Louis A Kelsch, a lifetime member of the Mormon Church who has served in various callings and capacities in his faith, offers an easy-to-understand interpretation of his religion to facilitate better understanding and acceptance of the dogma of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This study explains that the LDS Church is organized exactly like the church the Lord Jesus Christ created in the meridian of time. As a completely restored church, it continues today with the same beliefs, practices, and organization experienced by those early-day saints as presented in the New Testament writings of the King James Version of the Holy Bible. In this discussion, Kelsch examines and explains the Godhead, the Great Apostasy, the Restoration, the Book of Mormon, the principles of the gospel and the Scriptures, and the plan of salvation. Geared toward the investigator, those less active in faith, and those struggling with testimony, Enter Ye in at the Strait Gate provides an outline of the fruits one can expect from being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
