Il y a de ces choses dont on pense qu'elles sont immuables, éternelles. Les bouddhas d'Afghanistan, les forêts d'Amazonie, les tours du World Trade Center, les glaces de la banquise... Jusqu'au jour où l'on réalise qu'elles peuvent disparaître avec la même fragilité qu'un papillon éphémère et que le monde en sera changé à jamais. Le couple formé par Étienne et Valérie, c'était un peu cela. Le symbole d'un amour que rien ne peut détruire. Jusqu'au jour où... Lorsqu'après quinze ans de vie commune, le poids du temps qui passe devient insupportable, Étienne et Valérie se déchirent et se séparent. C'est la tempête dans leur entourage : amis, parents, enfants, chacun a son mot à dire. Si la naissance de l'amour a lieu dans l'intimité, une rupture est l'affaire de tous et chacun, à sa manière, veut y avoir sa place. Sous les yeux de leurs proches, Étienne et Valérie tentent de se reconstruire, chacun de leur côté.
À travers leurs souvenirs les plus torrides, nous revivons les quinze années de sexe et d'amour sur les décombres desquelles naîtra la suite de leur histoire. Une ultime quête de soi et de l'autre, qui vient clore la trilogie de La rééducation sentimentale. Servi par une écriture fine, précise et sensuelle, Un sentiment d'éternité confirme Emma Cavalier comme la romancière du sentiment amoureux.

Será que o cavalo branco só passa uma vez? É isso que Bárbara vai descobrir com bom humor, jogo de cintura e uma pitada de neurose, em O Garoto dos Olhos Azuis, romance de estreia de Raiza Varella.

What's the secret to a life of happiness? "In this delightful book brimming with humorous and poignant passages, radio personality Hugh Hewitt provides the answer. The starting place is generosity, he says, and there are seven gifts that are sure to improve the lives of both giver and receiver: encouragement, energy, enthusiasm, good humor, graciousness, gratitude, and patience. Anyone can give these gifts, but Hewitt shows that some people are particularly well placed to offer them: parents, spouses, family members, friends, teachers, coworkers, and fellow church members. Channeling his skills as a broadcaster, journalist, lawyer, and teacher, Hewitt weaves stories about these seven gifts and seven givers with inspiring and motivating observations to help readers become generous in the ways that matter most.
"The Happiest Life is not simply a delight to read, and not merely a glimpse under the hood of a remarkable man. It’s a map to what Robert Frost once described as the road traveled—the road that leads to a life of meaning and gratitude and joy.” —Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia "Reading this book is the next best thing to sitting down for a long conversation with my friend Hugh Hewitt.” —Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary “Wanna be a happier person? Know anyone else who does? What if this book could actually help with that? Cutting to the chase—it can. And it will." —Eric Metaxas, New York Times best-selling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and 7 Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness
Paul Tillich (1886–1965) is widely regarded as one of the most influential theologians of the 20th century. By bringing his thought together with the theology and practices of an important contemporary Christian movement, Pentecostalism, this volume provokes active, productive, critical, and creative dialogue with a broad range of theological topics. These essays stimulate robust conversation, engage on common ground regarding the work of the Holy Spirit, and offer significant insights into the universal concerns of Christian theology and Paul Tillich and his legacy.
Coarse Witchcraft is a squint-eyed look at what passes for Craft in many modern groups and just how much of the teaching has been dumbed down so that everyone can acquire rank and have a crack at the priesthood . This blind grope for titles, rank and public acclaim have replaced the enlightened quest for genuine wisdom and ability, while the old Witch-magic is practised by fewer and fewer of those who would call themselves Witches. There are also those who insist on being recognised as instant Adepts in a system that takes years of study and preparation but book-learning is not enough as many have found to their cost when confronted by real Old Crafters. Coarse Witchcraft is a no-holds-barred view of what is going on today in many Craft circles. Hopefully, those who read this book will laugh, and realise that it is possible to mix mirth and magic, while still retaining respect for oneself and the Old Ways."
