InThey Looked Up and Saw Jesus Only, Jon chronicles the contours of his personal journey, as reflected in his 40 years of editingBRR/STfrom 1978?2018. Beginning with C.H. Dodd?s 1946 lecture in England,The Gospel and the Law of Christ, which signaled a turning-point in New Testament studies, Jon then presents highlights from his early writings, which have never been published or have been long out-of-print.Triggered by his 1972 reflections on ?Of God?s Covenant? in the 1742Philadelphia Confession of Faith, Jon was brought to question the major systems of theology, and began to see that Jesus inaugurated a New Covenant with His blood. This led him to focus on theNewimperative to ?love one another? as He loved us on the Cross. The ?one another? in this love-command led him to realize that there were 58 ?one another?s? running like a thread through the New Testament. This, in turn, caused him to ask, ?How do the sisters fit in as these one-another?s are worked out in the life of Christ?s body, theekklesia?? He became convinced that systems of theology generally had marginalized Christ, that most church structures were dominated by ?the pastor,? thus minimizing the 58 one-another?s, and that Christ?s work was seen in the New Testament as a ?New Exodus,? fulfilling the shadow of the mighty Red Sea exodus. As Augustine Stock put it: ?The coming of Jesus is the new definitive Exodus?this is the burden of the Gospels? message?The Exodus tradition then seems to be one of the most fundamental in Scripture. All stages of redemptive history subsequent to the first event used the Exodus to explain its own meaning. If modern readers no longer feel completely at home with it, this is only because they have lost their Scriptural heritage to a large degree.?

You´re not alone . Hollow words for any tender soul smiling through the day while hiding a deep sense of loneliness. For such a soul—like Dawn Downey—the friendliest encounter becomes an exercise in alienation. In her essay titled, ´´A Traveler´s Tale,´´ she describes a stroll through her neighborhood. ´´A dust mop of a puppy bounded toward me, her brush tail slicing the air with ´hello come play´ and a young woman on the other end of her leash. Straggling behind them was a toddler pushing an umbrella stroller. ´´I knew they lived in the blue house on the corner … in their front yard, a stand of coreopsis whose yellow starbursts surprised me every summer. ´´The little girl skipped along in my blind spot, peppering me with questions and her own answers. I fantasized a life-long friendship between us, taught her to read, gave her sage advice after a teenage spat with her boyfriend. ´´I wanted to ask the young woman´s name, but they hurried past, toward their blue house on the corner, dust mop´s yap yap yap fading ….´´ Through the stories in Searching for My Heart , Downey investigates why she feels left out, returning to themes of alienation, shame, and the self-awareness that leads to love. Downey is a seeker on a quest for closeness. Every step in her search is a homecoming, where she discovers connection begins with herself. A book for anyone with a desire to belong.

Instant New York Times Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book of 2016 A Time Magazine Top 10 Novel of 2016 A Times Literary Supplement Best Book of 2016 ´´ Dazzling . . . A profound novel about the claims of identity, history, family, and the burdens of a broken world.´´ -Maureen Corrigan, NPR´ s ´´ Fresh Air´´ In the book of Genesis, when God calls out, ´´Abraham!´´ before ordering him to sacrifice his son, Isaac, Abraham responds, ´´Here I am.´´ Later, when Isaac calls out, ´´My father!´´ before asking him why there is no animal to slaughter, Abraham responds, ´´Here I am.´´ How do we fulfill our conflicting duties as father, husband, and son; wife and mother; child and adult? Jew and American? How can we claim our own identities when our lives are linked so closely to others´? These are the questions at the heart of Jonathan Safran Foer´s first novel in eleven years-a work of extraordinary scope and heartbreaking intimacy. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks in present-day Washington, D.C., Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia Bloch and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the meaning of home-and the fundamental question of how much aliveness one can bear. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence, and emotional urgency that readers loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foer´s most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet. It not only confirms Foer´s stature as a dazzling literary talent but reveals a novelist who has fully come into his own as one of our most important writers.
