Dr. Lux publishes essay in volume on Luther
Dr. Elaine Lux, Professor of English, publishes essay “Release from Torment: Finding Grace in Arthur Miller’s After the Fall, John Osborne’s Luther, and C.S. Lewis’s Till We Have Faces” in the peer-reviewed, scholarly volume: Literature of Luther: Receptions of the Reformer, edited by A. Edward Wesley and J. Christopher Edwards (Pickwick Publications, 2014).
Drawing upon stages of spiritual growth that Dr. Lux identifies in the archetypal myth of Cupid and Psyche, this interpretive consideration of three diverse works explores the dual role of an uncertainty that both can create torment within the soul and can open us to grace, as well.

Dr. Danaher publishes essay in Oneing
Dr. James Danaher, Professor of Philosophy, publishes "Transgression” in Oneing: An Alternative Orthodoxy (Vol 2, No 1), a bi-annual literary journal of the Rohr Institute.
Richard Rohr, in his introduction to this edition of Oneing, states: “It seems that we must fail, and even ‘transgress,’ and then desire mercy and love because of that very transgression.”
The paradox is that transgression is a necessary part of the transformative process. Transgression can be “sin” that separates us from the Divine in ourselves and in others, preventing us from entering into the flow of relationship…. At other times, what may be perceived as transgression is the necessary movement across false boundaries that keep us from God. Until we experience the pain of separation from Divine Reality, we often don’t do the necessary work to move beyond our small narcissistic selves into the much larger reality of a Truth that frees and transforms us.
This issue of Oneing includes original articles by Richard Rohr, Rob Bell, Cynthia Bourgeault, James Danaher, Russ Hudson, Diarmuid O’Murchu, Bill Plotkin, Robert Sardello, Avideh Shashaani, and others.
