In this landmark book, Seven Stories Press presents a powerful collection of literary, philosophical, and political writings of the masked Zapatista spokesperson, Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos. Introduced by Nobel Prize winner José Saramago, and illustrated with beautiful black and white photographs, Our Word Is Our Weapon crystallizes "the passion of a rebel, the poetry of a movement, and the literary genius of indigenous Mexico." Marcos first captured world attention on January 1, 1994, when he and an indigenous guerrilla group calling themselves "Zapatistas" revolted against the Mexican government and seized key towns in Mexico's southernmost state of Chiapas. In the six years that have passed since their uprising, Marcos has altered the course of Mexican politics and emerged an international symbol of grassroots movement-building, rebellion, and democracy. The prolific stream of poetic political writings, tales, and traditional myths that Marcos has penned since January 1, 1994 fill more than four volumes. Our Word Is Our Weapon presents the best of these writings, many of which have never been published before in English. Throughout this remarkable book we hear the uncompromising voice of indigenous communities living in resistance, expressing through manifestos and myths the universal human urge for dignity, democracy, and liberation. It is the voice of a people refusing to be forgotten the voice of Mexico in transition, the voice of a people struggling for democracy by using their word as their only weapon.

Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak's original essay "Can the Subaltern Speak?" transformed the analysis of colonialism through an eloquent and uncompromising argument that affirmed the contemporary relevance of Marxism while using deconstructionist methods to explore the international division of labor and capitalism's "worlding" of the world. Spivak's essay hones in on the historical and ideological factors that obstruct the possibility of being heard for those who inhabit the periphery. It is a probing interrogation of what it means to have political subjectivity, to be able to access the state, and to suffer the burden of difference in a capitalist system that promises equality yet withholds it at every turn. Since its publication, "Can the Subaltern Speak?" has been cited, invoked, imitated, and critiqued. In these phenomenal essays, eight scholars take stock of the effects and response to Spivak's work. They begin by contextualizing the piece within the development of subaltern and postcolonial studies and the quest for human rights. Then, through the lens of Spivak's essay, they rethink historical problems of subalternity, voicing, and death. A final section situates "Can the Subaltern Speak?" within contemporary issues, particularly new international divisions of labor and the politics of silence among indigenous women of Guatemala and Mexico. In an afterword, Spivak herself considers her essay's past interpretations and future incarnations and the questions and histories that remain secreted in the original and revised versions of "Can the Subaltern Speak?" both of which are reprinted in this book.
Our willingness and faithfulness to pray for others is the hallmark of an effective prayer life. Sometimes our prayers are hindered because we focus only on our needs or requests. But the church has been commissioned to make disciples of all nations, and it is the responsibility of each member to pray for others in our world. Well-organized and inspirational, The Prayer Manifesto for the Globally Conscious explores the importance of having a heart to pray for God’s people across the world by denying ourselves and taking up our cross to follow God. Author Lischa T. Brooks uses scriptural examples and humorous, personal stories to illustrate how to develop an effective personal prayer life and focus on our responsibility to pray for others. In addition to finding a deeper purpose and understanding of prayer principles, you can learn how to: •begin your prayer with worship; •conduct an examination of your attitudes and actions; •pray with the Word of God; •take time to listen to the Father; •establish prayer partners; and •connect with a local church body. Establishing a life of prayer requires more than just passion and desire; it involves a commitment to applying the principles outlined in the Word of God every day. Develop a rich prayer life committed to God with The Prayer Manifesto for the Globally Conscious.
A Bee In The Church House (The Sting of sin)is a testimony of an overcoming victor; exposing instances of usual drama or traumatic experiences that can be a root of bitterness as a hindering wound, if not healed. The power of the Holy Spirit produces a walk in the newness of Christ by faith, eradicating a form of godliness. When tested or tried we persevere in prayer, diligently seeking God through transformation by renewing the mind; righteously equipped to do that written in our manual for living now, and the world to come. Gods word is the Truth, revealing an evil spirit when holding the truth in unrighteousness. A modern day overview of the New Testament Book of Romans with an awareness of a lingering spirit among us that is suspect; existing as a spirit of anger, selfishness, deceit, bitterness, strife, buzzing, hissing, and at times appearing, as a rattling pit demon. will enlighten, liberate and empower the believer experiencing the searing pain of a church hurt. Guidance is to be received through this labyrinth of emotional and spiritual devastation as a powerful and insightful reflection of Gods Word. -- Pastor Stephanie Stratford, Ekklesia Family Life and Worship Center, Brentwood, MD helped to expose a systematic problem within the walls of our sanctuaries and has provided for each reader a Godly exit strategy that one must work at to be the man or woman of God that He is calling for in these last and evil days. -- Eric D. Barksdale, Senior Pastor/Teacher, Washington, DC bares her soul in a very moving testimony that will stir your heart and provide insights for spiritual growth and development. -- Reverend Welton Fields, Jr., PhD Herein is revealed to the reader that there is a turf battle (Strong Holds) in the church, i.e.,: This is my song; this is my seat; this is my.... When these turfs are threatened, the Bee will look to and use its sting, seemingly in many cases, to the detriment of the Believer. -- L.B. West, D.R.S.
