Five reasons why you should read this book: 1. The sinner is waiting on you. 2. Those in association with the sinner are waiting on you. 3. The local and universal church are waiting on you. 4. Jesus is waiting on you. 5. Heaven is waiting on you. This book is for the nonfisherman who desires to learn how to fish, whether it is for recreational purposes, putting food on the table, or winning lost souls for the kingdom of God. This book is for the experienced fisher of fish who has yet to be called from the pond and may not yet realize his or her truer calling. This book is for the believer who possesses or lacks actual fishing experience and who may not know—but needs to know—that he or she has been called to fish for souls. This book will get you where God wants you to be (being a disciple of His), introduce you to a method to put food on the table, and provide for you a source of enjoyment, fulfillment, and recreation. This book is the complete fishing manual for both the beginner and the experienced fishermen of fish and souls. After reading this book, not only will your life have new meaning, your life and the lives of others will never be the same. You will never view water, fishing, your daily calendar, your agenda, and lost souls in the same way. Every moment of your life will become a fishing moment as you look at life and the lives of others through the eyes of Jesus, who views lost souls as fish in need of being caught.

Tales of Wonder

A breathtaking collection of literary fairy stories from an award-winning fantasist Author Jane Yolen speaks to the ancient magic within us all in this anthology of 30 grown-up fairy stories—lovely, lyrical, poignant, sometimes frightening tales of transformations and transfigurations, magical destinies and dangerous quests, strange visions, reawakenings, and just desserts. A past winner of the Nebula Award, World Fantasy Award, and numerous other honors, Yolen takes her rightful place alongside the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, combining innovative literary style with fables that reimagine the myths of old and some of her legendary predecessors’ most cherished characters: Cinderella, simple Jack, Guinevere, Icarus, and the Frog Prince. Step into Yolen’s wondrous realm of magic and dreams, where a curious young woman’s desire to read the future leads her to the weaver of tomorrow; a farm boy with the voice of an angel seeks out Lady Death to sing for the life of his mother; and a sow, a cow, and a mare set out together to see the world. These timeless stories tell of an eager girl’s entrance into the Hall of Grief and a sunless prince who fears the vengeance of a jealous star. A tree-bound young dryad longs to dance in the spring, and a grumpy old potter pours his heart and soul into his greatest work. Yolen’s stories are unforgettable tales of the heart and the spirit; they are truly tales of wonder.

The relationship of myth to literature has largely been overshadowed in contemporary theory by perspectives of a linguistic or sociological orientation and by relativist, sometimes negatory, stances on all searches for meaning. This book attempts to show that myth criticism and critical theories of more recent provenance are not irreconcilable. While taking into consideration some of the more influential tenets of structuralist, post-structuralist, Marxist and feminist theory, it applies a post-Jungian ('archetypal') approach to illustrating the perennial nature of a particular myth (the Fall of Man) in two main traditions (Mesopotamian and Christian) and in the contemporary novel in English. The discussions of five major novels by William Golding, Patrick White, Martin Amis, Salman Rushdie, and Wilson Harris not only serve to expand the mythological insights achieved in the first part of the book; they also suggest the incommensurability of imaginal, novelistic life with mythology's age-old intuitions about the human condition. Myth criticism emerges from this book as an irreplaceable vantage-point from which man's lapsarian predicament can be scrutinized synchronically as archaic wisdom, contemporary anxiety, and post-colonial commitment to the building of a new human city.
