Nemerov's contribution to our literature--as a gifted writer of ficti
Nemerov's contribution to our literature--as a gifted writer of fiction and critical prose, but pre-eminently as a poet-- does not seem to me to have received as much celebrity as it deserves. Nemerov's virtues are all in fact unfashionable ones for our time: vivid intelligence, an irreverent sense of humor, a mastery of formal verse, an awareness of mystery (Books 3). Although known primarily as a poet, Howard Nemerov has also distinguished himself as a critic, short story writer, and nove

Buddhism About 2,500 years ago, an Indian prince named Siddharta Guatama, dissatisfied with his spiritually barren life, left his home, his wife, and his son and set out to find enlightenment. After a period of period of six years spent in constant searching, Guatama finally reached enlightenment, or Nirvana, while sitting under a tree in a long, profound state of meditation.

Law-Gospel Law in short- Old Testament, Gospel- New Testament. This is as far as how these two testaments teach us to live. Before Christ, the law governed us. It was our side of the covenant that Moses made with God for Israel. He would be our God, offer protection and provide while we would obey his instruction. The covenant is an interesting concept because it is not your every day, run of the mill deal. Throughout the exodus we saw God's people failing to keep their side of the covenant yet
