Portals to Prayer Elizabeth Gaskell

Portals to Prayer Elizabeth Gaskell

For Patricia Lynch, “opening one of Elizabeth Gaskell’s works is like ‘reading’ an icon or, in her case, an exquisite Pre-Raphaelite painting. We step into her world: the lush beauty of the Cheshire countryside and the cramped, dark wretchedness of factory towns.“ Fans of Gaskell’s published and dramatized works will discover ways in which The Message can reveal the depth of faith and challenge our own in Cranford, North and South, Wives and Daughters, and other favorite novels and short stories.

In his introduction, Ron Marasco writes of William Shakespeare: “Hidden beneath a surface of what seem to be purely ‘secular’ plays and poetry, is a depth of soul that literary-critics have long called ‘genius,’ but that people of faith would recognize as prayer.” Accompanying passages from The Message shine a light on works such as Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, and The Sonnets, to reveal the prayers written into Shakespeare’s plays and hidden in the rafters of his poetry.

Portals to Prayer Melville- Large Print

He may have assigned Moby Dick in high school, but Paul Boudreau first entered the world of Herman Melville’s great tale as an adult while vacationing on Nantucket. “I had no idea that, before this amazing read was over,” he writes in his introduction, “I would have discovered hundreds of biblical allusions in the text. As a student and teacher of Scripture, I was delighted.” Boudreau’s delight shines through in his selections from Moby Dick, Typee, Billy Budd, and other works, and in his enlightening selection of passages from The Message.
