Young people are walking away from the church and those still in the church often struggle with indifference about their faith. But it doesn't have to be this way. It's time for a revolution, a holy uprising. A riot. With passion and authenticity, teen author Sara Barratt calls on her generation to reject apathy and embrace a daring, costly faith. Not content with safe religion that demands nothing of us, Sara shows teens how they can stop giving in to the status quo and devote themselves fully to Christ, following him no matter what their friends do or the culture around them does. She challenges them to give everything over--their comfort zones, their time, their loyalties, their pride--and discover that in losing control they are gaining the life that was meant for them all along. Love Riot is a battle cry from one teen to another to embrace a life of wholehearted commitment and relentless abandon for Christ . . . no matter the cost.

Who killed twenty-four-year-old Priscilla Hart? This highly motivated, idealistic American student had come to India to volunteer in women’s health programs, but had her work made a killer out of an enraged husband? Or was her death the result of a xenophobic attack? Had an indiscriminate love affair spun out of control? Had a disgruntled, deeply jealous colleague been pushed to the edge? Or was she simply the innocent victim of a riot that had exploded in that fateful year of 1989 between Hindus and Muslims? Experimenting masterfully with narrative form in this brilliant tour de force, internationally acclaimed novelist Shashi Tharoor chronicles the mystery of Priscilla Hart’s death through the often contradictory accounts of a dozen or more characters, all of whom relate their own versions of the events surrounding her killing. Like his two previous novels, Riot probes and reveals the richness of India, and is at once about love, hate, cultural collision, the ownership of history, religious fanaticism, and the impossibility of knowing the truth.

Although books, films, and periodicals were subject to Irish government censorship through much of the twentieth century, stage productions were not. The theater became a public space to air cultural confrontations between Church and State, individual and community, and “freedom of the theatre” versus the audience’s right to disagree. And disagree they often did. Throughout the twentieth century, Irish performances of new plays by William Butler Yeats, John Millington Synge, and Sean O’Casey, as well as those of such lesser-known playwrights as George Birmingham, often evoked heated responses from theatergoers, sometimes resulting in riots and public denunciation of playwrights and actors.

Rule Jacobs takes readers on a walk through his mind in his unique poetry collection,Mind*Riot.His strongly felt opinions, witty phrasing, and brutal honesty capture the essence of life today. While some of his poems conjure powerful images of the give and take that we face in our relationships, others are the lyrical musings of someone who knows and feels life intimately. His poetry is thought-provoking and at times inspirational, transporting anyone who reads it to a place of strong emotions. Jacobs gets to the heart of life and shakes it up with his genre of poetry called "spitted word" that is inspired by music."7 Fathoms in Depth"The art of painting ------ is the sketch of one's vision---- Thousands of lost soldiers Still trapped inside the cells of my brains prison No longer confined ... I miss you ... Every time I sneeze you bless me And in return I kiss you I have arrived colorless Yet I am all 16 shades of black 7 fathoms in depth with all I have left Carved in facts The fact that most are copycats Gives existence to the evidence of ignorance While creating your designs then sharing them Gives hope to a sign of intelligence ...
