In this article-style book excerpt from The Language of God in Humanity, Helena explains what Yahshua meant when He said that the only sign He would give was the Sign of Jonah. This excerpt carefully analyzes Jonahs story to show that - just as Yahweh called Jonah to love the Ninevites he hated - God still wants all Jewish and Gentile Israel to love their enemies and bless those who persecute them.

(Nowadays, words such as sick or wicked are adjectives connoting impressiveness when they once inferred illness and malevolence.)
Connotation is mostly addressed in essay's analyzing poetry because the amount of language to explore is limited while interpretations concerning the use and meanings of
that language are endless.
"As we begin our ninth year of publication, the need to reaffirm our initial mission statement rings ever louder: redefine the terms of accessibility. Given our imagined community (to recall Benedict Anderson) of readers, poets, writers, critics, and editors, I cannot help but ask: who will take the census? and who are the cartographers drawing lines on the maps? Who will curate the museums of literature? And if we are all complicit in the cultural Ideological Apparatus (to use gross Althusserian concepts), why would we not question the reproduction of the relations of production? Why should we not question how literature is distributed/disseminated? Why should we not question how a journal should look? or act? or represent itself in the market? And what of content? of the constraints of labels and schools and movements . . ." (From the "Editor's Note" accompanying the Winter/Spring 2006 edition.)

Why a class specifically on persuasive writing? First of all, here in Nevada, the state writing test for eleventh graders must be passed by every student planning to graduate, and the prompts given to our juniors can be either expository or persuasive. Second, we believe persuasive writing is a neglected genre, even though it is clearly embedded in our state standards. Too often, persuasive writing lessons are taught only by our language arts teachers, who only have limited time to focus on this genre because they are teaching so many other genres and modes. We believe persuasive writing is a type of writing that can be practiced in every curriculum area, and we believe with repeated exposure to persuasive writing tasks that our students will be that much more prepared for their high school writing tests. Our new inservice workshop was designed to help teacher participants design thoughtful persuasive writing lessons that would engage students to use their written voices when writing in all curriculum areas.
