A tough town like Olean offers a guy only so many job options: sweat in the stench of oil refinery crude, like his immigrant father does, suffer boredom in a factory job, or apprentice in a trade. Icky Haut chooses the latter and works his way up, one crumb at a time, in a commercial bread bakery. Haut loves everything about baking bread: the smell and taste of yeast, the softness of flour rubbed between fingertips, the intense heat of ovens, the anticipation of a loaf’s rise, and the comfort of its promise of sustenance. But after his second child is born, he realizes he’s been mixing, proofing, shaping, scoring, and baking dough half his life. Is this it? Maybe not . . . but then his great idea to expand the bakery jams him up with his boss, and he’s toast. How Haut relies on family and faith to start his own bakery is the center of this real-life, local-guy-makes-good story set in the 1930s and 40s. Haut’s boss calls bread the “staff of life” feeding his bottom line; the Hauts are nourished by their faith, and that shift in perspective recasts the story to hope in the “Bread of Life.”
The stories in this book describe a personal encounter with the broader environment of the garden. Nature becomes this book and Human Nature becomes the story. These stories will show you how the garden can speak to you; that you can have an intimate relationship with it from your bicameral brain. The stories describe plaintive and enthusiastic reports from the garden that the author has faithfully translated. By the end of this book, you will know that nothing is ever exactly as it seems...neither in the garden, nor in life, The stories in this book stress the magic the garden displays: that the seemingly ordinary is always extraordinary. It becomes, when living life as part of the garden, that we seek to know the hidden dimensions. While often translated as a fable or a parable or an allegory, what is sought after is revealed in real events. As the author, I am a simple garden scribe.

There is a very beautiful treatise of St. Thomas Aquinas on the adorable Sacrament of the Altar. It is hard to know which to admire more, the fulness and precision of its arrangement, or the way in which he brings in the words of the Holy Ghost from the Sacred Scriptures. From this treatise, and nearly always in its very words, I have arranged these Meditations for the Servants of the Holy Ghost. In fact, all that was needed was to number or letter the divisions of the book so that they could be easily seen. The prayers and thanksgivings I have added. I have put the teaching of the Saint by itself, and the words of the Holy Ghost by themselves. In this I have only carried out what St. Thomas has himself done in the treatise. For the more part he has, after stating and explaining his points, put the texts by themselves, referring to the first point, the second point, the third point, and so on. Putting them all together, therefore, is only carrying out what this Angelic Saint has done. Aeterna Press
"It's 1933 and Mabel just wants to bake bread. She leaves the cold shack she shares with her father for the warmth of her kneading table at Cameron's store and gets caught in a snow storm, sparking events that expose the raw humanity of those around her. Loyalty and betrayal, guilt and shame, and faith and doubt collide as the dirty secrets of the bleak coal mining community throw lives into turmoil. A series of brutal attacks, a murder, and an ambitious sergeant intent on seeing someone hang, reveal a town, oppressed as much by its dreary prospects, as it is by its institutionalized corruption, sexism and racism. Mabel just wants to bake bread, but she has her own secrets to protect. The Bread Maker is a rich, beautifully told narrative that seamlessly weaves humour and tragedy into a touching story about life, love and the potential of the human spirit to overcome great odds."--Back cover.
Meghan Martins walked into the cosmetology school and straight into the path of Becky Ellingson, her husbands ex-girlfriend. Twenty minutes later, Meghan raced out of Hair Nation with half her head highlighted and the reality that her husband was not who she thought he was. He had a son, a bank account, and jobs to provide child support, which she knew nothing about. Meghan thought shed find clarity by running away, but she found the truth to be far more distorted than shed imagined. Everyone was hiding something. And everyone, it seemed, was struggling to maintain the notion that he or she was somehow better than someone else. It would take counseling, a good Bible study, and a whole lot of tea to get Meghan Martins and her husband, Ben, back on the same page. Meghan would come to realize she was hiding just as much as her husband and that she was equally capable of creating damage. Tragedy, controversy, and a new understanding of the human condition await Meghan in the tiny town of Oronoco, Minnesota, but so do adventure, hope, and witty friends who bring meaning back to her life.
In AD 30, Valerio Tullus and his Jerusalem household are shaken by an earthquake, but more so by Yeshua, a Galilean rabbi shaking Jewish society by proclaiming God's coming kingdom. Eight years before, Valerio arrived in Judea dead to all he loved. But after fighting and nearly dying to defend Leah, a young Jewish woman whose struggle to survive and serve God had inspired him, Valerio realizes that her compassionate God saved his life. Now he wonders - does Yeshua possess the same divine power? To find out, Valerio, Leah, and her children Simon and Anna set out for Galilee in search of Yeshua, and their encounter with the rabbi shakes the foundations of their lives. Is God's kingdom coming soon, they wonder? Will their love for one another endure when it does? And what will happen to Yeshua? In her writing, Cheryl Ann Toliver hopes to engage readers in New Testament culture and history, so they can better understand its message and learn what people thought of Jesus in his lifetime. In Bread and Stone: A New Kingdom, she continues her story begun in Wilderness Refuge: A Prophet's Kingdom.
