              Talking at the Gates: A Life of James Baldwin

              An intimate portrait of Baldwin's mythic life. James Baldwin was one of the most incisive and influential American writers of the twentieth century. Active in the civil rights movement and open about his homosexuality, Baldwin was celebrated for eloquent analyses of social unrest... in his essays and for daring portrayals of sexuality and interracial relationships in his fiction. By the time of his death in 1987, both his fiction and nonfiction works had achieved the status of modern classics. James Campbell knew James Baldwin for the last ten years of Baldwin's life. For Talking at the Gates, Campbell interviewed many of Baldwin's friends and professional associates and examined several hundred pages of correspondence. Campbell was the first biographer to obtain access to the large file that the FBI and other agencies had compiled on the writer. Examining Baldwin's turbulent relationships with Norman Mailer, Richard Wright, Marlon Brando, Martin Luther King Jr., and others, this candid and original account portrays the life and work of a writer who held to the principle that "the unexamined life is not worth living." This new edition features a fresh introduction addressing recent developments in Baldwin's reputation and his return to a position he occupied in the early 1960s, when Life magazine called him "the monarch of the current literary jungle."It also contains a previously unpublished interview with Norman Mailer about Baldwin, which Campbell conducted in 1987.

              This book reads Oscar Wilde as a queer theorist and Wilfred Owen as his symbolic son. It centers on the concept of 'male procreation', or the generation of new ideas through an erotic but non-physical connection between two men, and it sees Owen as both a product and a continuati...on of this Wildean tradition.

              You are very important. Important to God. He created you in his image and he loves you. He introduces himself to you through his word, the Bible. And his word invites you to enter an intimate relationship with him: the supernatural, cosmic divine, the God of creation. People ofte...n ask, What is God like? The answer is in the Bible. And the more you read the Bible, the better you will know God and deepen a relationship with him. Yet many Bibles are read only now and then. Why? Some people say that the Bible is too big; it is complicated; it takes a lot of understanding; you must be religious; its ideas are old; and many other reasons. Perhaps you feel this way, or you are new to the Bible. If so, this little book will help you love to read your Bible. Read your Bible! will help you navigate the Bible and make it readable and understandable. You will see how God reveals his nature and character on every page of the Bible. It outlines the structure of the Bible and how each part is important to growing a relationship with God and understanding his purposes for you. It includes extensive extracts from the Bible to make a point or tell the story, rather than paraphrasing the Bible or employing human interpretations.
