Building on the interest generated by Sullivan’s previous art and spirituality title, Windows into the Soul, this book focuses on the journey from darkness to light inherent in Lent. By using an easily accessible liturgical format, the book provides a pathway for those who walk from Ash Wednesday to the empty tomb of Easter. Organized around holy days and Sundays in Lent, chapters begin with a prayer or poetic excerpt, followed by scripture for the day or week. A narrative then expands on the themes introduced by the prayer and scripture. Exercises following the narratives are simple—mostly collage exercises using differing techniques—and are accessible to a wide audience. Soul Questions, popular with readers, guide the spiritual exercise following the narrative, and Thoughts for the Journey, also popular with Windows readers, complete each chapter with suggestions for further reflection.

LITTLE WORDS can be windows through which the light of Christ can shine. So often we miss the little words in a verse. This book explores some little (two letter) words in the Bible that make a BIG difference. Many little words are explored. IN, for instance, is an important little word: Therefore, if anyone is IN Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new 2 Corinthians 5:17. When we are IN Christ, we are a temple of the Holy Spirit. In order to fully benefit from being His temple, we need to be instructed (structured) using material from His word. I have found that paying attention to little words gives more insight into, and more powerful meaning to, Bible passages. Hopefully, a year in this book of devotions will help in your understanding, appreciation, and use of the Bible. Each month begins with a definition of that month’s little word with information about its power and usage. The definition is followed by a verse for each day of the month using that little word with thoughts for meditation and spiritual growth. I wish for you the love, joy, grace, and peace of God. Please enjoy the impact of LITTLE WORDS!

This book presents the reader with some of the earliest classic SF short stories – all of them published between 1858 and 1934, featuring both well-known and long-forgotten writers – dealing for the first time with topics to which science had (some) answers only at much later stages. This includes aspects of alien life forms, transmogrification, pandemics, life on Mars, android robots, big data, matter transmission and impact events to name but a few. The short stories are reprinted in full alongside extensive commentaries which also examine some of the latest scientific thinking surrounding the story’s main theme and provide the reader with suggestions for further reading.
