As we mark the 50th Earth Day (April 22, 2020), Christians can reflect on how caring for God’s creation is connected to our faith. Drawing on the beloved hymn “For the Beauty of the Earth,” each week of this 40-day Lenten devotional focuses on a different aspect of the splendor of nature, how God nurtures our spirit through creation, and how we must protect our precious home. As we walk with Jesus along shorelines, through gardens, and among trees, we learn from the “birds of the air” and “the lilies of the field.” When our Lenten journey takes us into the heart of Earth itself at Jesus’ tomb, we anticipate the resurrection with eager longing and active hope. Each five-minute devotional includes a scripture, reflection, and prayer.

The Beauty of the Dead (Jonathan Cape, 1940) featuring fifteen stories, was released to critical acclaim. Pamela Hansford Johnson wrote in John O'London's Weekly that "all have that delicate luminosity by which visions are seen more clearly than in the bright sunlight." 'Old' is a snapshot of an elderly man – no longer appreciated or respected by his children and extended family – during a Sunday tea. He finds a companion in his seven-year-old grand-niece, making animal shapes out of biscuits and eventually falling into a "mesmeric peace" as she brushes his hair. There is a glimpse of Bates's childhood experiences in 'Quartette', written through the eyes of a music director. The story accounts the attraction between two of the singers which the director worries is breaking up the group, yet on their last song he can feel "the passionate quality of their singing transcending the small hot room and the small bewildered minds". Bates had much personal knowledge of choirs and singing through his father, who was a choir director. 'The Bridge' is narrated by a twenty-two-year-old woman while she and her older sister vie for the attention of the same man. The Spectator praised it as "a masterly short story...courageously conceived... thick with symbolism, it is a triumphant display of control." For the first time, this collection features the comic bonus story 'Obadiah'. After a tough, poverty-stricken childhood, Obadiah's scheme to make his fortune begins with a pig. He wanted neither children nor romance, but a partner in business, so when he meets a widow with similar values, he wins her over in what becomes a comic sketch of a bickering couple – a rare and brilliant piece of caricature in Bates's canon. Published in the New Clarion (1933), and not republished since.

This book anchors its account of the beauty of Jesus Christ to a scheme found in St Augustine of Hippo's Expositions of the Psalms. There Augustine recognized the beauty of Christ at every stage-from his pre-existence ('beautiful in heaven'), through his incarnation, the public ministry ('beautiful in his miracles, beautiful in calling to life'), passion, crucifixion, burial, resurrection ('beautiful in taking up his life again'), and glorious life 'in heaven'. Augustine never filled out this laconic summary by writing a work on Christ and his beauty. The Beauty of Jesus Christ seems to be the first attempt in Christian history to write a comprehensive account of the beauty of Christ in the light of Augustine's list. The work begins by offering a working description of what it understands by beauty as being perfect, harmonious, and radiant. Beauty, above all the divine beauty, enjoys inexhaustible meaning and overlaps with 'the holy' or the awesome and fascinating mystery of God. Loving beauty opens the way to truth and helps us grasp and practise virtue. The books needs to add some items to Augustine's list by recognizing Christ's beauty in his baptism, transfiguration, and post-resurrection sending of the Holy Spirit. It also goes beyond Augustine by showing how the imagery and language Jesus prepared in his hidden life and then used in his ministry witness to the beautiful sensibility that developed during his years at home in Nazareth. Throughout, this book draws on the Scriptures to illustrate and justify Augustine's brief claims about the beauty revealed in the whole story of Christ, from his pre-existence to his risen 'post-existence'. Where appropriate, it also cites the witness to Christ's beauty that has come from artists, composers of sacred music, the creators of icons, and writers.

صُدِم ألبرتو مانغويل، وهو يقرأ رواية «تجاذبات انتقائية» لغوته، خلال سفره في كالاغاري، بمدى ما كانت هذه الرواية تعكس الشواش الاجتماعي للعالم الذي كان يعيش فيه. يمكن لمقطع في الرواية أن يُلمِع على نحوٍ مفاجئ مقالاً في صحيفة يوميّة، وقد تُحرّض كلمةٌ واحدة تفكيراً طويلاً. قرّر أن يحتفظ بسجلٍ لهذه اللحظات، أن يعيد قراءة كتابٍ كل شهر، وأن يصيغ «يوميات القراءة»: كتاباً من الملاحظات، من انطباعات عن السفر، عن الأصدقاء، عن الأحداث العامة والخاصة، مستخلصة كلّها عبر قراءاته. من «دون كيشوت» إلى «جزيرة الدكتور مورو» إلى «كيم» يقودنا مانغويل في مغامرةٍ ساحرة في الأدب وفي الحياة، ويبرهن لنا كيف أنّهما، وبكلّ ما تعني العبارة من معنى، غير قابلين للانفصال بالنسبة لقارئٍ شغوف.

In the Beauty of the Lilies begins in 1910 and traces God’s relation to four generations of American seekers, beginning with Clarence Wilmot, a clergyman in Paterson, New Jersey. He loses his faith but finds solace at the movies, respite from “the bleak facts of life, his life, gutted by God’s withdrawal.” His son, Teddy, becomes a mailman who retreats from American exceptionalism, religious and otherwise, into a life of studied ordinariness. Teddy has a daughter, Esther, who becomes a movie star, an object of worship, an All-American goddess. Her neglected son, Clark, is possessed of a native Christian fervor that brings the story full circle: in the late 1980s he joins a Colorado sect called the Temple, a handful of “God’s elect” hastening the day of reckoning. In following the Wilmots’ collective search for transcendence, John Updike pulls one wandering thread from the tapestry of the American Century and writes perhaps the greatest of his later novels.

Like a letter from the past, Mildred Mifflin's aching journal of loss speaks to a modern audience in a modern way. In a desperate, crushingly painful journey to make sense of the death of her daughter, Mifflin penned an honest work that speaks to anyone dealing with grief. First published in 1888, this lovely work brings a message of hope. Questioning her faith, Mifflin turned to many authors who had written of grief. She finally comes to terms with loss in her own way and realizes what a friend tells her is true: "You will never get over this." But she does find a way to go on and to keep her beloved Ruby with her. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
