ISBN: 0932575684 OCLC: 18571244

"Illinois has a landscape that is as subtle as prairie grass and wildflowers, as bold as endless fields of corn and the rising Chicago skyline. The photographer and the author have approached this complex tapestry from four points of view: natural landscape, rural landscape, crossroads, and Chicago. Using standard and panoramic cameras, Irving has captured the essence and texture of the state. The natural landscape yields delicate patterns of prairie grasses, woodlands budding out in early spring leaves, a riot of autumn colors in Shawnee National Forest, and spectacular views from the Garden of the Gods State Park"--Dust jacket flap.

Modern Orthodox Judaism :
ISBN: 9780827612891 OCLC: 950613786

Modern Orthodox Judaism offers an extensive selection of primary texts documenting the Orthodox encounter with American Judaism that led to the emergence of the Modern Orthodox movement. Many texts in this volume are drawn from episodes of conflict that helped form Modern Orthodox Judaism. These include the traditionalists' response to the early expressions of Reform Judaism, as well as incidents that helped define the widening differences between Orthodox and Conservative Judaism in the early twentieth century. Other texts explore the internal struggles to maintain order and balance once Orthodox Judaism had separated itself from other religious movements. Zev Eleff combines published documents with seldom-seen archival sources in tracing Modern Orthodoxy as it developed into a structured movement, established its own institutions, and encountered critical events and issues--some that helped shape the movement and others that caused tension within it. A general introduction explains the rise of the movement and puts the texts in historical context. Brief introductions to each section guide readers through the documents of this new, dynamic Jewish expression.

"Open Places of Grace and be guided through forest, wetland, and prairie into the heart of the undiscovered Midwest. From the prairie grasses of western Nebraska to the boreal forests of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, this volume delights the eye and fires the imagination with unexpected images of lands that yet retain the marks of their primeval origins."--Jacket.
