📒Man S Search For Meaning ✍ Viktor Emil Frankl
📝Man s Search for Meaning Book Synopsis : Frankl's timeless memoir and meditation on finding meaning in the midst of suffering With a new Foreword by Harold S. Kushner and a new Biographical Afterword by William J. WinsladePsychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America. Beacon Press, the original English-language publisher of Man's Search for Meaning, is issuing this new paperback edition with a new Foreword, biographical Afterword, jacket, price, and classroom materials to reach new generations of readers. Born in Vienna in 1905 Viktor E. Frankl earned an M.D. and a Ph.D. from the University of Vienna. He published more than thirty books on theoretical and clinical psychology and served as a visiting professor and lecturer at Harvard, Stanford, and elsewhere. In 1977 a fellow survivor, Joseph Fabry, founded the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy. Frankl died in 1997.

📒Man S Search For Ultimate Meaning ✍ Viktor E Frankl
📝Man s Search for Ultimate Meaning Book Synopsis : Viktor Frankl is known to millions as the author of Man's Search for Meaning, his harrowing Holocaust memoir. In this book, he goes more deeply into the ways of thinking that enabled him to survive imprisonment in a concentration camp and to find meaning in life in spite of all the odds. Here, he expands upon his groundbreaking ideas and searches for answers about life, death, faith and suffering. Believing that there is much more to our existence than meets the eye, he says: 'No one will be able to make us believe that man is a sublimated animal once we can show that within him there is a repressed angel.' In Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning, Frankl explores our sometimes unconscious desire for inspiration or revelation. He explains how we can create meaning for ourselves and, ultimately, he reveals how life has more to offer us than we could ever imagine.
📒Viktor Frankl S Search For Meaning ✍ Timothy Pytell
📝Viktor Frankl s Search for Meaning Book Synopsis : First published in 1946, Viktor Frankl's memoir Man's Search for Meaning remains one of the most influential books of the last century, selling over ten million copies worldwide and having been embraced by successive generations of readers captivated by its author's philosophical journey in the wake of the Holocaust. This long-overdue reappraisal examines Frankl's life and intellectual evolution anew, from his early immersion in Freudian and Adlerian theory to his development of the "third Viennese school" amid the National Socialist domination of professional psychotherapy. It teases out the fascinating contradictions and ambiguities surrounding his years in Nazi Europe, including the experimental medical procedures he oversaw in occupied Austria and a stopover at the Auschwitz concentration camp far briefer than has commonly been assumed. Throughout, author Timothy Pytell gives a penetrating but fair-minded account of a man whose paradoxical embodiment of asceticism, celebrity, tradition, and self-reinvention drew together the complex strands of twentieth-century intellectual life.

📒Preaching To The Hungers Of The Heart ✍ James A. Wallace
📝Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart Book Synopsis : Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart is about words, most particularly it is a book about the Word, the living Word of God, found in the Scriptures, and embodied once and for all in the person of Jesus, the Word made flesh. In Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart Fr. James Wallace offers a nuanced consideration of the homily as nourishment. He focuses on three common liturgical contexts: feasts of the Lord, feasts of Mary and the saints, and the sacramental rites. He relates the preaching that occurs within each area to one of the heart?s basic hungers: for wholeness (the great feasts of the Lord), for guidance (feasts of Mary and the saints), and for meaning (various rites). He also addresses the spirituality of the preacher as it is worked out in the process of preparation. For preachers and students in schools of ministry who are preparing to preach Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart will serve as a useful tool to help satisfy the hunger to preach the Gospel. It includes homilies that provide excellent starting points for preachers looking for ideas. Chapter one considers the image of feeding God?s people with the Word of God. Chapter two, considering the innermost hunger of the human person, looks to the preaching that takes place on the great feasts of the Lord and how such preaching can nourish the hunger for wholeness. Chapter three returns to the hunger for meaning already mentioned and extends to the other sacramental celebrations the homily?s capacity to meet this hunger, including those addressed by the various sacramental celebrations of the Church such as baptisms, wedding, funerals, rites of reconciliation, and anointing of the sick. Chapters four and five present the homily as responding to the hunger to belong. The final chapter considers one other hunger of the heart, unique to the preacher, referred to by John Paul II as a ?hunger to preach the gospel? (Pastores Dabo Vobis, no. 28). Chapters are ?Preaching?s Task in a New Millennium: Feeding God?s People,? ?Preaching the Feasts of the Lord and the Hunger for Wholeness,? ?Preaching Within the Sacramental Rites and the Hunger for Meaning,? ?Preaching Through the Saints and the Hunger for Belonging: I?The Saints,? ?Preaching Through the Saints and the Hunger for Belonging: II?Mary,? and ?Cultivating the Preacher?s Hunger: ?To Make the Gospel Known and Loved.???Wallace guides preachers in linking their sermons to the festal, pastoral, and sanctoral calendar ...? Theology Today?... covers areas of preaching that can also be done by lay preachers, it is useful to both the ordained and lay Catholic preacher. And if you are not a preacher, this book will help you become a more attentive listener to the scriptures and more receptive worshiper at liturgical celebrations.? Worship?Our world hungers and thirsts for the living Word of God that gives life and hope. Father Wallace invites, no charges, preachers to explore the essential role they are to play in feeding God?s people. While written primarily for a Roman Catholic audience, his insights will feed a much wider audience.? Lucy Hogan Professor of Preaching and Worship Wesley Theological Seminary Washington, D.C.?Imagine a caterer overwhelmed by trying to feed too much hunger in too many banquets. Parish priests feel similarly daunted attempting to preach to multiple spiritual need in multiple feasts. James Wallace, writing from both his homiletical expertise and pastor?s heart, shows committed preachers how to serve the kind of homiletical fare at the Church?s feasts that nourishes basic hunger for wholeness, meaning, and belonging. In answering a crying need in pulpit and pew, Wallace beautifully combines his gifts for insight, clarity, and creativity.? Don M. Wardlaw Professor Emeritus of Preaching and Worship McCormick Theological Seminary Chicago?The book is an invaluable and long overdue resource for Catholic preachers and teachers of preachers. I will certainly be requiring it of my students. Instead of a bag of superficial tricks and gimmicks, the book provides preachers with a deep understanding of the several liturgical preaching occasions the book addresses. The work is thorough, thoughtful and theological yet clear, practical, and pastoral. The author?s love of preaching and his deep respect for the various special occasion liturgies are evident on every page. I found the last chapter?s concern for the ongoing need for preachers to remain alive to their preaching right on target. The four ?loves? the author lists as necessary to sustain preachers stand as warning and remedy for weary preachers.? Richard C. Stern, Ed.D. Associate Professor of Homiletics Saint Meinrad School of Theology ?Rarely have I read a book on preaching that is so rich, informative, encouraging, practical. Fresh ideas, vivid imagination, familiarity with contemporary literature, stories, playing with metaphors, excursions into history?it?s genuinely breathtaking. And his concluding exhortation: cultivate love for words, for Scripture, for people, for Jesus Christ?my heart was on fire.? Walter J.
