The Reverend Howard Finster (1916–2001) was called the "backwoods William Blake" and the "Andy Warhol of the South," and he is considered the godfather of contemporary American folk and visionary art. This book is the first interpretive analysis of the intertwined artistic and religious significance of Finster’s work within the context of the American "outsider art" tradition. Finster began preaching as a teenager in the South in the 1930s. But it was not until he received a revelation from God at the age of sixty that he began to make sacred art. A modern-day Noah who saw his art as a religious crusade to save the world before it was too late, Finster worked around the clock, often subsisting on a diet of peanut butter and instant coffee. He spent the last years of his life feverishly creating his environmental artwork called Paradise Garden and what would ultimately number almost fifty thousand works of "bad and nasty art." This was visionary work that obsessively combined images and text and featured apocalyptic biblical imagery, flying saucers from outer space, and popular cultural icons such as Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Henry Ford, Mona Lisa, and George Washington. In the 1980s and 90s, he developed cult celebrity status, and he appeared in the Venice Biennale and on the Tonight Show. His work graced the album covers of bands such as R.E.M. and Talking Heads. This book explores the life and religious-artistic significance of Finster and his work from the personal perspective of religion scholar Norman Girardot, friend to Finster and his family during the later years of the artist’s life.

Paul Darby, a former army officer and Sam Oliver, a recent college graduate from humble origins meet in modern day Saint Petersburg, Russia, a setting steeped in history, romance, and tragedy, where both have just been posted as junior diplomats to the American Consulate. There they become fast friends; two young men who are eager to experience all that being strangers in a strange land might have to offer them. Over two years, Paul and Sam's experiences are defined by the people they meet and the relationships that form, both with Russians and other foreigners like themselves. They have entered a lifestyle of hard partying and reckless pursuits, of trying to embrace the unknown while still clinging to the familiar. The central story line follows Paul's impassioned affair with the beautiful young English woman and fellow expatriate, Clara Woodburn, and his struggle for her affection versus Clara's Russian boyfriend, Kostya, who is the main reason she has moved to Russia in the first place. But the circumstances surrounding this affair are anything but straightforward and its consequences are far reaching. Sam, for his part, must also negotiate a series of ambiguously defined relationships as he comes into his own in this world where nothing is black and white. All of these flawed characters, each in their own way, must struggle to find exactly what is important in life and what they hope to get out of it, whether they deserve it or not. But can they accomplish this without destroying themselves and/or those around them along the way? This novel is a portrait of the excesses of the expatriate lifestyle. It is a story about the danger of hope and the inherent selfishness of the human condition. But it is also proof of the uniquely powerful love and friendship that can be found under such circumstances.

One of the most challenging problems of contemporary theoretical physics is the mathematically rigorous construction of a theory which describes gravitation and the other fundamental physical interactions within a common framework. The physical ideas which grew from attempts to develop such a theory require highly advanced mathematical methods and radically new physical concepts. This book presents different approaches to a rigorous unified description of quantum fields and gravity. It contains a carefully selected cross-section of lively discussions which took place in autumn 2010 at the fifth conference "Quantum field theory and gravity - Conceptual and mathematical advances in the search for a unified framework" in Regensburg, Germany. In the tradition of the other proceedings covering this series of conferences, a special feature of this book is the exposition of a wide variety of approaches, with the intention to facilitate a comparison. The book is mainly addressed to mathematicians and physicists who are interested in fundamental questions of mathematical physics. It allows the reader to obtain a broad and up-to-date overview of a fascinating active research area.

The Reverent Surrender is an insightful memoir that tells the story of a father's dynamic and beautiful relationship with his son cut short when he took his own life. How does one retain the life lessons past on without becoming resentful of their father's decision? As an only son, James Finster, retells the memories of the life and times he experienced with his father and looks for the messages and teachings within them while finding the strength to carry on as a man and father himself. From learning to drive at the age of eight to avoid certain death, to facing and conquering his own demons in the days following his father took his own life, James Finster spreads thoughtful insight into the complex relationship that is the father and son dynamic. Through these memories Finster finds the strength to move forward and forgive life's ultimate sin, and honor his father while keeping his teachings close to the heart and applying them in his own life. The Reverent Surrender reinforces the idea that a life is not list with death, that is truly the teachings and memories that keep the spirit alive within the hearts of those touched in their lifetime.

This monograph introduces the basic concepts of the theory of causal fermion systems, a recent approach to the description of fundamental physics. The theory yields quantum mechanics, general relativity and quantum field theory as limiting cases and is therefore a candidate for a unified physical theory. From the mathematical perspective, causal fermion systems provide a general framework for describing and analyzing non-smooth geometries and "quantum geometries". The dynamics is described by a novel variational principle, called the causal action principle. In addition to the basics, the book provides all the necessary mathematical background and explains how the causal action principle gives rise to the interactions of the standard model plus gravity on the level of second-quantized fermionic fields coupled to classical bosonic fields. The focus is on getting a mathematically sound connection between causal fermion systems and physical systems in Minkowski space. The book is intended for graduate students entering the field, and is furthermore a valuable reference work for researchers in quantum field theory and quantum gravity.
