Squire Vane was an elderly schoolboy of English education and Irish extraction. His English education, at one of the great public schools, had preserved his intellect perfectly and permanently at the stage of boyhood. But his Irish extraction subconsciously upset in him the proper solemnity of an old boy, and sometimes gave him back the brighter outlook of a naughty boy. He had a bodily impatience which played tricks upon him almost against his will, and had already rendered him rather too radiant a failure in civil and diplomatic service. Thus it is true that compromise is the key of British policy, especially as effecting an impartiality among the religions of India; but Vane's attempt to meet the Moslem halfway by kicking off one boot at the gates of the mosque, was felt not so much to indicate true impartiality as something that could only be called an aggressive indifference. Again, it is true that an English aristocrat can hardly enter fully into the feelings of either party in a quarrel between a Russian Jew and an Orthodox procession carrying relics; but Vane's idea that the procession might carry the Jew as well, himself a venerable and historic relic, was misunderstood on both sides. In short, he was a man who particularly prided himself on having no nonsense about him; with the result that he was always doing nonsensical things. He seemed to be standing on his head merely to prove that he was hard-headed. He had just finished a hearty breakfast, in the society of his daughter, at a table under a tree in his garden by the Cornish coast. For, having a glorious circulation, he insisted on as many outdoor meals as possible, though spring had barely touched the woods and warmed the seas round that southern extremity of England. His daughter Barbara, a good-looking girl with heavy red hair and a face as grave as one of the garden statues, still sat almost motionless as a statue when her father rose. A fine tall figure in light clothes, with his white hair and mustache flying backwards rather fiercely from a face that was good-humored enough, ...

Like The Rings Of a Tree tells a life story of a boy who grew to manhood during a turbulent time in American history. The story begins in rural South Dakota during the drought and depression years of the 1930''s. World War II involved family members in that conflict and changedAmerican life forever. The day by daywork on Midwestern farms of that era is described by someone who has worked with horses, harvested grain, picked corn by hand, made hay and survived winter blizzards. Military service by a draftee caughtup in the Korean War is related. The author takes us to life in tents, death and destruction, and the searing experience of seeing homeless, freezing and starving children. Those events resulted in a life changing experience. An encounter with institutionalized racism is noted,as the author and his fiance find they cannot be married in South Dakota, which like many states at that time, forbade interracial marriages. They were married in a neighboring state, because the author''s bride was an American citizen of Chinese ancestry. Several chapters describe theregion and people in Northeast Montana where the author worked for theMontana Agricultural Extension Service on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, and how a Lakota baby girl became their first child. This Life story ofaccumulated experiences, Like Rings Of A Tree, depict some aspects of American history through the memoir of one ordinary person.

If sociology could teach everyone just one thing, what would it be? What insight about the nature of social life could serve as a gateway to questions that point toward everything we want to know? What could we use as a starting point, a core view of reality on which sociological practice of all kinds is based, consciously or not? The Forest and the Trees is one sociologist's response to the hypothetical -- the core insight with the greatest potential to change how people see the world and themselves in it. It is about what that insight is and why it matters that we understand it, use it, and pass it on. It is about the future of a discipline whose influence and credibility will stand or fall on the ability to foster a clear and widespread understanding of what it means to think sociologically. The Forest and the Trees is an account of how sociological practice finds its way into almost every aspect of life, from headlines in the morning paper to the experiences of growing older to the ravages of social oppression. It is about things small and things large, things simple and things more complex than we can imagine. The Forest and the Trees flows from the tradition of Peter Berger's Invitation to Sociology and C. Wright Mills' Sociological Imagination. It will engage students and teachers alike with a rare and powerful combination of a scholar's feel for the discipline, and a gifted writer's voice that moves and inspires with the immediacy of lived experience, a clear and accessible articulation of the tools of the trade, and a passionate commitment to the promise of sociology to revolutionize how people think about social life and participate in it.

Like A Tree Planted By The Water

The author’s magnum opus on the outer darkness was a two-volume book by that title. That book found the background for the outer darkness in the OT, principally in the book of Isaiah. The present book expounds that OT background for the outer darkness by examining the precursor texts in Psalms, especially Ps 1-2. The outer darkness is explained in relation to New Jerusalem. The water of life is a free gift for those who drink it outside the city walls but a reward at its point of origin at the throne atop the city. The tree of life is a reward that is found on both sides of the river of life inside the city. The water of life flows through the city gate to the outside of the city, where it can be drunk freely. But the tree of life is not found freely outside the city. When David describes the faithful believer as a tree firmly planted by the streams of waters, he prophetically anticipates the rewards faithful believers will receive in New Jerusalem, which he perceives in terms of Mount Zion. New Jerusalem is the heavenly version of this mountain. The earthly version is but the shadow of this heavenly reality. David sees the shadow, speaks in terms of typology, and anticipates the Heavenly City. Whereas David foresees the reward of the faithful, he also foresees the punishment of the unfaithful. Naturally, since he associates the reward of the faithful with inhabitation in the Holy City, the punishment of the unholy is, not surprisingly, associated with lack of access to this Reward City. An appendix includes some of the author’s collaborating material from other books pertaining to other Zionistic texts dealing with New Jerusalem and the outer darkness. Texts for Isaiah are of particular interest for the OT background for the outer darkness and misthological death, that is, death in terms of loss of rewards.
