AS A COUNTRY preacher in the lowlands of eastern Carolina I lived literally by still waters. Here is a serene retreat for him who cares to live a day at a time with leisure to “linger, list and dream": cypress swamps low-hung with moss; lazy waters where fishing-boats float carelessly; darkies abundant—another proof of leisureliness!—and everywhere the calm of restfulness that seems to drift in with the tide from the nearby sea. For one who easily grows tired of modernity’s mad masquerade it is pleasant to return to these tranquil lowlands. Nothing is more restful than a stroll beside these still waters while the wood-thrush serenades from the cypresses, while cattle amble homeward along pasture-lanes, and darkies hum their way from the fields at sundown. Is it not significant that most of the men of God in the Bible knew best the fields, the pastures, the woods and waterways? Abel, the keeper of sheep; Abraham, Joseph, Moses, learning their deepest lessons among the flocks; David, the ideal shepherd-boy, whose later psalms breathe so often the spirit of early days among the quiet hills; Amos, the herdsmen, John the Baptist, the fishermen-disciples, and, above all, the Lord Jesus—these knew the way of the still waters. But drowsy waters alone cannot rest the soul. Yet these pleasant waterways of earth have their counterpart in the Word: “He leadeth me beside the still waters.” In the terrific pace of this age men break in body, mind and spirit, and he who knows not God’s waters of quietness knows no peace at any price. By Stoic hardihood, by “drowning their troubles,” by forced optimism, by psychologic fads and freakish mental calisthenics, men seek “That blessed mood In which the burden of the mystery, In which the heavy and the weary weight Of all this unintelligible world Is lightened.” But they find it not. Partly, because it is not a mood, “a feeling fond and fugitive.” It is a matter of faith, taking God at His Word. We reach the still waters when we cease being Ponce de Leons, looking for an elusive fountain of youth, and humbly follow the Good Shepherd to the green pastures. Men call that foolish, crude, childish—there are so many newer, more up-to-date recipes for peacefulness. Everywhere fine boulevards lead to the popular resorts of this “ism” and that, where with clever new methods earth’s doctors seek to treat the soul. But how often scholars ransack libraries looking for the secret of peace while the janitor may have found it long ago by the way of the Cross! Do you know the waters of His rest? We do not mean that daily you will bask in happy circumstances. “In the world ye shall have tribulation” Our Lord’s life was full of storm and tempest, yet in the darkest days of all He bequeathed to us His legacy of peace (John 16:33). His rest is no imaginary escape from reality. His peace is that blessed consciousness that in the midst of trouble our real lives are beyond the reach of circumstance hid with Christ in God. Blessed experience, possible for the humblest believer here and now! And blessed prospect still ahead for us when this mortal shall have put on immortality: “A pure river of water of life, clear as crystal proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb!”

A wrecked German bomber…key to the secrets of the Third Reich? All it took was one phone call and TV show host and archaeologist Annja Creed is in mortal danger. Her producer Doug Morrell has been abducted by a greedy treasure hunter who's seeking the lost raubgold, or looted gold of Nazi Germany. The terms are simple: retrieve the bounty and Doug lives. Fail, and he dies… Now Annja and her friends must find a missing German fighter plane that was shot down over the Alps in 1945. According to legend, the aircraft not only holds a shipment of gold the Nazis had stolen, but also carried the last letters of the fhrer himself. Letters that point to a more startling treasure buried underwater halfway around the world. But Annja isn't interested in treasure, or even unearthing historic relics. Annja has one agenda: get Doug out alive…even if it means drawing her sword from its otherworldly sheath. Even if it means death. Because once greed drives a man to violence, nothing will stop him…

A gritty, powerful debut that evokes The Outsiders. You won't be able to look away. High school senior Jason knows how to take a punch. Living with an abusive father will teach a kid that. But he’s also learned how to hit back, earning a reputation at school that ensures no one will mess with him. Even so, all Jason truly wants is to survive his father long enough to turn eighteen, take his younger sister, Janie, and run away. Then one day, the leader of the in crowd at school, Michael, offers to pay Jason to hang out with him. Jason figures Michael simply wants to be seen with someone with a tough rep and that the money will add up fast, making Jason’s escape plan a reality. Plus, there’s Michael’s girl, Cyndra, who looks at Jason as if she sees something behind his false smile. As Jason gets drawn deeper into Michael’s game, the money keeps flowing, but the stakes grow ever more dangerous. Soon, even Jason’s fists and his ability to think on his feet aren’t enough to keep his head above water. Still Waters is an intense, gritty thriller that pulls no punches—yet leaves you rooting for the tough guy. A powerful, dynamic debut. Praise for Still Waters: A Junior Library Guild Selection "Parsons adeptly takes on the teenage male perspective in her gritty debut. Parsons creates deeply felt characters. Tight plotting combined with raw voice and emotion will propel readers through this thriller. Keep an eye on Parsons."—Booklist "Debut author Parsons turns in an edgy thriller about a teenager whose propensity for violence gets him caught up in deadly matters. A dark, fast-paced, and violent crime drama about desperation and revenge that explores a complex moral dynamic. Jason’s flaws and rough edges help create a rounded, dimensional character, and his narrative is stark and compelling."—Publishers Weekly "[A] provocative and suspenseful book . . . Still Waters features well-drawn characters, realistic dialogue, and ethical dilemmas that many readers have already faced or might have to face in the future. A great choice for reluctant readers, fans of books with male protagonists, and lovers of survivor stories."—School Library Journal

A compelling question for people of faith today is how to remain committed to one's own religious tradition while being open to the beauty and truth of other religions. For example, some fear that Buddhism is a threat to Western faith traditions and express grave doubts about interreligious and cross-cultural encounters. Yet, many who have actually broadened their experience profess to have developed a deeper understanding of and a deeper commitment to their tradition of origin. This is what makes Beside Still Waters: Jews, Christians, and the Way of the Buddha such a new and meaningful contribution. Rather than offering research or lectures, Beside Still Waters takes a deeply personal approach, allowing the reader to delve into the individual experiences of fourteen Jews and Christians whose encounters with Buddhism have truly impacted their sense of religious identity. As Jack Miles, author of God: A Biography, says in the book's foreword, "The Buddhist presence in the religious world is far larger than a head-count of Buddhists can reveal." Beside Still Waters upholds this point by way of the diverse and eloquent authors who lend their perspective in its pages; these include Sylvia Boorstein, John B. Cobb, Norman Fischer, Ruben Habito, and other important members of the Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, and scholarly communities. Their collected anecdotes and interviews amount to an unprecedented and enduring work, sure to deepen our ability to understand each other, and therefore, ourselves.

A frame story, By the Still Waters is ultimately the story of post- colonial Nigeria recapitulated in the struggles of a brave teenage girl, not only to salvage her broken dreams from her country’s smoldering ruins, but also to rebuild the dreams of her country women. “Udo”, the heroine of By the Still Waters means “Peace” in English language. But far from what her name connotes and contrary to her long held dreams of good life and the aspiration and hopes of her loving parents, something apposite and quite sinister stood between her and the attainment of the well-intended plans and expectations. The tyranny of repressive values; fortune’s double cast, indifferent and wicked relations and the mother of them all, the aged village Chief who was forced on her as a suitor made something to snap in her. She simply took to flight. To where? Indeed, no contemplation! Being under aged, inexperienced and disadvantaged, her various adventures and wanderings actually took her through thick and thin and balanced her precariously for some time on the edge of doom! But guided by virtue, good family upbringing, will to succeed against all odds, and to a greater or lesser extent, faith in God, she not only succeeded in securing the sound education and training she had desired, the security of a home she missed, and the love of her life she yearned for all the while; but also the happy re-union with her family, minus her father. She had swum in massive waves of oppression for some time, and emerged a survivor from the raging depths of tumultuous existence. Now, Freedom’s Voice for women trapped in the hard places of life, she continues her walk quietly beside the still waters of life!
