An original, provocative and thoughtful series of readings of the New Testament and extra-biblical texts. Making forays into literary criticism, philosophy, and theology, Templeton draws upon a rich diversity of sources. He proposes that we read the New Testament not as history (true or false) - in what is still the dominant hermeneutic - but rather as "true fiction".

#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Goldberg hits the ground running in a breakneck thriller where truth and fiction collide for the unluckiest writer alive. When a passenger jet crashes onto the beaches of Waikiki, bestselling thriller writer Ian Ludlow knows the horrific tragedy wasn't an accident. Years before, the CIA enlisted Ian to dream up terrorism scenarios to prepare the government for nightmares they couldn't imagine. Now one of those schemes has come true, and Ian is the only person alive who knows how it was done...and who is behind the plot. That makes him too dangerous to live. Ian goes on the run, sweeping up an innocent bystander in his plight--Margo French, a dog walker and aspiring singer. They are pursued by assassins and an all-seeing global-intelligence network that won't stop until Ian and Margo are dead. Ian has written thrillers like this before, but this time he doesn't know how it's going to end--or if he will be alive to find out.

The author turns true experiences into stories that adorn his biographies and autobiographies. He does so as a means of information, instruction and discussion. In fact he provides authentic insights of the human predicament in a universe that is sometimes friendly, sometimes hostile but often indifferent. He also delineates the human aspect in realistic living characters. The narration of many incidents and accidents is woven into his stories reinforced by imaginative fiction. True tragic incidents are both intensely dramatic and highly emotional. They engender sympathy and empathy that imprints them as true to life. On the other hand, comic episodes in the life of the characters stimulate humour, an element of pleasant relief and entertainment. True or imaginary they embellish the literary world by allowing the readers' participation in adventures of ordinary people. Personal experiences encompass man's journey on earth, no matter how colourless and humdrum is his life. However man's physical activities, such as travels to nearby or to distant countries, enrich life experiences. In addition, man's thought, stimulated by philosophical dicta, makes him aware of the hidden truths of his universal role. As a human being, Man is subject to superior forces. He is buffeted by coincidences, destiny, misfortune and even Providence. Though this collection of stories may encapsulate a short span of a man's life, they are in essence true to life. Though plot may be coloured by imaginative fiction, the stories are characteristic of a true narration and a recording of what truly happened. Thus, the reader should evaluate the story by its truth rather than by other characteristic structures. Nevertheless, the author considers these stories more as a literature of escape than of interpretation. Yet they broaden the readers' vision and sharpen their awareness of the everyday reality of life. The stories are certainly true to life. They illustrate various reactions and other aspects of human behaviour,

From Lonely Planet, the world's leading travel guide publisher, Better Than Fiction 2, the follow-up to 2012's Better Than Fiction, is a second serving of true travel stories told by some of the world's best fiction writers including Dave Eggers, Jane Smiley and Karen Joy Fowler. Varied in place, plot and voice, these are stirring and evocative pieces that all share one common characteristic-they manifest a passion for the precious gift of travel, from its unexpected but inevitably enriching lessons about other peoples and places, to the truths, sometimes uncomfortable but always enlarging, it reveals about ourselves. By turns comic, dramatic, and moving - from Francine Prose's confrontation of the mysteries of India to DBC Pierre's search for Hemingway's muse in Italy - these 30 short tales reveal the joys, perils, and surprises of travel, and that truth can often be stranger (and better) than fiction. Whether on a plane en route to your own travel adventure, or at home settling in for a vicarious experience of world adventures, embark on this literary journey around the world and explore your passion for travel now!

Well, except for some of the scary stuff.
