Transform Your Family with Ten Minutes a Day in the Gospel Story Christian parents know the importance of passing the gospel story on to their children, yet we live in a busy world filled with distractions. Schedules collide, there is homework and yard work and dishes and laundry, the car's oil should be changed, there are phone calls to make and before you know it, everyone is getting to bed late again. The Bible can seem like a long story for an active family to read, but when you break it down into short sections, as Marty Machowski does, family devotions are easy to do. Long Story Short will help busy parents share with their children how every story in the Old Testament points forward to God's story of salvation through Jesus Christ. You won't find a more important focus for a family devotional than a daily highlighting of the gospel of grace. Clever stories and good moral lessons may entertain and even help children, but the gospel will transform children. The gospel is deep enough to keep the oldest and wisest parents learning and growing all their lives, yet simple enough to transform the heart of the first grader who has just begun to read. Ten minutes a day, five days a week is enough time to pass on the most valuable treasure the world has ever known. Long Story Short is a family devotional program designed to explain God's plan of salvation through the Old Testament and is suitable for children from preschool through high school.

Literature is long. Comics are short. Does Proust get you down? Do you find The Unbearable Lightness of Being simply unbearable? Is The Inferno your own private hell? Do you long to be conversant about classics like Moby Dick, the Bhagavad Gita, Madame Bovary, and, um, Twilight? Bestselling illustrator Lisa Brown (The Airport Book; Baby, Mix Me a Drink) did her homework. Long Story Short offers 100 pithy and skewering three-panel literary summaries, from curriculum classics like Don Quixote, Lord of the Flies, and Jane Eyre to modern favorites like Beloved, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, and Atonement, conveniently organized by subjects including “Love,” “Sex,” “Death,” and “Female Trouble.” Lisa Brown’s Long Story Short is the perfect way to turn a traipse through what your English teacher called “the canon” into a frolic—or to happily cram for the next occasion that requires you to appear bookish and well-read.

"Humans, unlike other living creatures, want to make and look at pictures." So begins the introduction to the jaw-dropping array of photographs in Long Story Short, the latest in Fraenkel Gallery's idiosyncratic surveys of photography since the medium's invention 180 years ago. A surprising and unconventional slice of photography's history, Long Story Shortis also an abbreviated tour of Fraenkel Gallery's approach to photography. Published to mark the gallery's 40th (and still counting) year, this sumptuously designed and printed volume presents work by photography's masters alongside that of little-known artists and anonymous thrift shop finds. Among the images to be discovered here are Eadweard Muybridge's 1887 study of a contortionist performing extreme body movements; Man Ray's 1923 ghostlike rayograph of an irradiated banjo; and a female impersonator applying her lipstick backstage, as seen by Diane Arbus in 1959. Interwoven among these are anonymous photographs of a tornado touching ground near Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts, in 1896; astronaut Buzz Aldrin standing beside an American flag on the moon in 1969; and a lawn mower flying inexplicably over a meadow in 1974. Presented in approximate chronological order, the unconventional flow of images conveys a profound sense of photography's infinite riches, and is a meditation on the inexhaustible possibilities of the medium itself.

A collection of cartoons, illustrations, and paintings that condense the complicated narratives of famous books into one-page works of art. "A subversive volume that translates a series of complex works of literature into a single-page illustration...A variety of artists rise to a unique literary and visual challenge." --Kirkus Reviews "One of the most fascinating books I have had the pleasure to 'flip through' in the past decade or more!" --Exclusive Magazine "Mr. Fish's chameleon-like versatility makes him the Ween of cartooning. He and his band of accomplices jolt you from one literary world to the next, each illustration like a little puzzle testing your cultural literacy. A short-attention-span joyride." --Jen Sorensen, Herblock Prize–winning cartoonist, the Nib, Daily Kos, and the Nation "Words fail me when I try to explain why Long Story Short is so brilliant, which I guess is the whole point of the book! Why talk over Beethoven (he wouldn't be able to hear you, anyway) or yammer on about poetry when a mute sunset can do it better? Here is art from an incredibly diverse group of cartoonists, painters, and illustrators that speaks for itself on literature's most novel ideas--now shut up and listen!" --Bob Mankoff, former cartoon editor of the New Yorker "Mr. Fish's ingenious collection of cartoon distillations of famous books shows why print editors so fear the art form. These succinct drawings by Fish and his artist collaborators really ARE worth a thousand words, and in Tolstoy's case, many more!" --Signe Wilkinson, Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist, Philadelphia Inquirer and the Daily News The Catcher in the Rye. Lolita. Moby-Dick. Infinite Jest. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. A Room of One's Own. Native Son. These are but a handful of classic works spectacularly distilled by Mr. Fish and a very talented group of painters, illustrators, graphic designers, and political cartoonists into succinct snapsho

Previous research into formulaic language has focussed on specialised groups of people (e.g. L1 acquisition by infants and adult L2 acquisition) with ordinary adult native speakers of English receiving less attention. Additionally, whilst some features of formulaic language have been used as evidence of authorship (e.g. the Unabomber's use of you can't eat your cake and have it too) there has been no systematic investigation into this as a potential marker of authorship. This thesis reports the first full-scale study into the use of formulaic sequences by individual authors. The theory of formulaic language hypothesises that formulaic sequences contained in the mental lexicon are shaped by experience combined with what each individual has found to be communicatively effective. Each author's repertoire of formulaic sequences should therefore differ. To test this assertion, three automated approaches to the identification of formulaic sequences are tested on a specially constructed corpus containing 100 short narratives. The first approach explores a limited subset of formulaic sequences using recurrence across a series of texts as the criterion for identification. The second approach focuses on a word which frequently occurs as part of formulaic sequences and also investigates alternative non-formulaic realisations of the same semantic content. Finally, a reference list approach is used. Whilst claiming authority for any reference list can be difficult, the proposed method utilises internet examples derived from lists prepared by others, a procedure which, it is argued, is akin to asking large groups of judges to reach consensus about what is formulaic. The empirical evidence supports the notion that formulaic sequences have potential as a marker of authorship since in some cases a Questioned Document was correctly attributed. Although this marker of authorship is not universally applicable, it does promise to become

Long Story Short could never have come into print if it were not for the friends, family, and loves who became insightful creations for writing about and becoming part of my time, my place, and myself. Written observations have been woven into poetry and stories throughout my life. As such, there are those who may not recognize themselves within the framework presented, but they are very, very real. I am grateful for the support and energy supplied by Anna S., who pushed, propelled, prodded, and dragged me kicking and screaming while walking this journey with me. Without her confidence in me and constant friendship, I could not have pulled myself up by my bootstraps to tackle what seemed an impossible goal and reach the dream of becoming a published author. My gratitude and humility is immense in completing the task at hand and giving readers, hopefully, words and images to relate to by seeing something of themselves or others through my eyes and writings.

Your life tells a story. From beginning to end, your life creates a unique narrative, shaped by the wider stories you find yourself in. For many in the West, the stories that dominate our experience are those of happiness (‘just do what makes you happy’), safety (‘it’s not worth the risk’) and significance (‘I want to be remembered’). But what if these stories are too small to really matter? Exploring the importance such stories play in our lives, Andy Frost, Director of Share Jesus International, presents an alternative narrative – the God Story. Long Story Short invites readers to find their place in the only story big enough to live for. ‘This book is invaluable for discovering, or finding again, your story.’ Tim Hughes ‘Andy encourages us to discover a greater narrative that ultimately helps us to find the real meaning for our existence.’ Lou Fellingham About the author: Andy Frost is Director of Share Jesus International and is responsible for kick-starting a variety of projects that help the Church to communicate the story of Jesus. He is a popular speaker and the author of a number of books, and has presented Jesus. The Series. He is married to Jo and they have two daughters. Currently living in London, Andy loves travelling the world, surfing good waves, pushing himself in physical challenges and eating Mexican food. Follow him on Twitter @andythefrosty
