"Paper Towns" was first included in the school reading lists, but it became controversial because several critics pointed to its sexual content. According to the author, he was inspired to write the novel through his own experience and knowledge of ‘paper towns,’ while he was on a road trip through South Dakota. The book was adapted into a highly successful movie. It was ranked at number five on the New York Times bestseller list for children’s books. The novel won the Edgar Award for best young adult novel in 2009. It is a novel in three parts. The three different parts are titled The Strings, The Grass, and The Vessel. These three are specific metaphors. The third part of the novel has been divided into subsections. Each section is given to the hour of the characters’ road trip.

Early Patristic Readings of Romans
Title : Early Patristic Readings of Romans
Author : Kathy L. Gaca,L. L. Welborn
Publisher: A&C Black
Total pages: 237 pages
This volume traces the earliest receptions of Paul's Letter to the Romans, seeking to elucidate their hermeneutical strategies as they endorse, explain, construct, and rework Romans as a normative authority. These early patristic readings of Romans by Clement of Alexandria, Irenaeus, Origen, and others are pivotal. Long before Augustine and Luther they set formative interpretive principles upon which is built the imposing yet diverse edifice of subsequent interpretations and uses of Romans. By the end of the second century CE, the letters of Paul had established themselves as authoritative bearers of divine revelation. Yet, the task of tracing the earliest receptions of Paul's Letter to the Romans is challenging, because the thought world of the early Christians is remote, molten, largely oral, and as such hard to trace. The essays in this volume rise to the challenge by explicating significant aspects of Paul's reception among early Christian readers. They ask: How did these readers construct Paul's view of pagan and Christian relations? of the Gentiles? Of Jewish salvation? Of faith? Of resurrection? Of Christian Platonist principles? Contributors to this volume demonstrate specific ways in which Romans was appropriated to define the philosophy of Christian Platonism, a development which has had an enduring impact upon the creation of a Christian paideia. >

How to Read the Bible
Title : How to Read the Bible
Author : James L. Kugel
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Total pages: 848 pages
As soon as it appeared, How to Read the Bible was recognized as a masterwork, “awesome, thrilling” (The New York Times), “wonderfully interesting, extremely well presented” (The Washington Post), and “a tour de force...a stunning narrative” (Publishers Weekly). Now in its tenth year of publication, the book remains the clearest, most inviting and readable guide to the Hebrew Bible around—and a profound meditation on the effect that modern biblical scholarship has had on traditional belief. Moving chapter by chapter, Harvard professor James Kugel covers the Bible’s most significant stories—the Creation of the world, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah and the flood, Abraham and Sarah, Jacob and his wives, Moses and the exodus, David’s mighty kingdom, plus the writings of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and the other prophets, and on to the Babylonian conquest and the eventual return to Zion. Throughout, Kugel contrasts the way modern scholars understand these events with the way Christians and Jews have traditionally understood them. The latter is not, Kugel shows, a naïve reading; rather, it is the product of a school of sophisticated interpreters who flourished toward the end of the biblical period. These highly ideological readers sought to put their own spin on texts that had been around for centuries, utterly transforming them in the process. Their interpretations became what the Bible meant for centuries and centuries—until modern scholarship came along. The question that this book ultimately asks is: What now? As one reviewer wrote, Kugel’s answer provides “a contemporary model of how to read Sacred Scripture amidst the oppositional pulls of modern scholarship and tradition.”

We schrijven 2044. Sinds de Grote Recessie leeft een aanzienlijkdeel van de wereldbevolking in diepe armoede.Als James Halliday kinderloos sterft, laat hij de hongerendemensheid een fantastisch spel na: oasis, een onlinegame die door miljarden spelers tegelijk gespeeld kan worden. Kort na zijn dood blijkt dat hij drie sleutels in het spel verstopt heeft, die leiden naar een kluis waarin de rest van zijn erfenis ligt opgeborgen. Wie de sleutels vindt, wordt in één klap multimiljonair. De jacht op de sleutels voert honderdduizenden nerds, geeks en gamers terug naar de jaren tachtig van de twintigste eeuw, de tijd waarin Halliday opgroeide. In de popcultuur van the eighties gaan ze op zoek naar aanwijzingen en naar geluk.
