A hands-on manual and a history and celebration of clothes tending--and its remarkable resurgence as art form, political statement, and path to healing the planet. “For Fans of NBC’s Making It, Bravo’s Project Runway, or shopping vintage: A sweater gets a hole? Sew it closed... Part history and part how-to, Mend! traces the task’s evolution from a 1950s chore to a DIY sustainability movement.” —Marie Claire For thousands of years, mending was a deep craft that has for too long been a secret history.

"This subtle and nuanced study is clearly Fackenheim's most important book." —Paul Mendes-Flohr "... magnificent in sweep and in execution of detail." —Franklin H. Littell In To Mend the World Emil L. Fackenheim points the way to Judaism's renewal in a world and an age in which all of our notions—about God, humanity, and revelation—have been severely challenged. He tests the resources within Judaism for healing the breach between secularism and revelation after the Holocaust. Spinoza, Rosenzweig, Hegel, Heidegger, and Buber figure prominently in his account.
PAIGE Logan McKinley. My ex. I knew he was trouble from the first moment I laid eyes on him. Fresh out of law school with a new job at one of San Diego’s biggest firms, I was supposed to focus on my career. No distractions, no men, and especially no office romances. Then I met Logan. He was cocky, smooth-talking, and gorgeous—a hotshot associate on the fast track to a partnership and exactly the kind of guy I needed to avoid. But he was relentless. He pursued me, intrigued me, and seduced me. And when I had no defenses left, my ambitions shifted, and I only wanted him. For a while, that was enough. But no one’s perfect. The man who put a ring on my finger isn’t who I thought he was, so I left. Now he’s back in my life, and he’s pushing me into a corner. It’s time to show him how hard I can push back. LOGAN “It’s over.” When those words came out of her mouth, I wasn’t surprised. What I didn’t expect was how damn near impossible it’s been to move on. The first time I saw Paige Waters, the new associate at my firm who was as intelligent and self-confident as she was stunning, I wanted her. I wasn’t used to women rejecting me, but she did—or tried to, anyway—which made me even more determined to have her. I had no idea that when I finally got her, I wouldn’t want to let her go. But I screwed up. She doesn’t even know how badly I screwed up, and everything still went to hell. Now, one year after our split and with so much still unresolved between us, we’re suddenly going head to head on the same case. Seeing her at the office again, where it all started, I realize that this is far from over. She’s still mine. And whether it’s in the courtroom or the bedroom, I always win.

"Tikkun Olam"--To Mend the World is premised on the conviction that artists and theologians have things to learn from one another, things about the complex interrelationality of life and about a coherence of things given and sustained by God. The ten essays compiled in this volume seek to attend to the lives, burdens, and hopes that characterize human life in a world broken but unforgotten, in travail but moving towards the freedom promised by a faithful Creator. They reflect on whether the world--wounded as it is by war, by hatred, by exploitation, by neglect, by reason, and by human imagination itself--can be healed. Can there be repair? And can art and theology tell the truth of the world's woundedness and still speak of its hope?
