Except that right now, he doesn’t know that. He can’t even remember his own name, let alone the nature of his assignment or how to complete it. All he knows is that he’s been asleep for a very, very long time. And he’s just been awakened to find himself millions of miles from home, with nothing but two corpses for company.

Hurtling through space on this tiny ship, it’s up to him to puzzle out an impossible scientific mystery—and conquer an extinction-level threat to our species.

An irresistible interstellar adventure as only Andy Weir could deliver, Project Hail Mary is a tale of discovery, speculation, and survival to rival The Martian—while taking us to places it never dreamed of going.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary

Hail Mary? examines the sexist and misogynist themes that underlie the socially constructed religious imagery of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Maurice Hamington explores the sources for three prominent Marian images: Mary as the "the blessed Virgin," Mary, the "Mediatrix"; and Mary, "the second Eve." Hamington critiques these images for the valorization of sexist forces with the Catholic Church that serve to maintain systems of oppression against women. In challenging dominant, religious representations of Mary, Hamington surveys a variety of emerging reinterpretations of Mary. He then provides a framework for further study of "non-alienating" images of Mary.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary

The groundbreaking story of the National Women’s Football League, and the players whose spirit, rivalries, and tenacity changed the legacy of women’s sports forever. In 1967, a Cleveland promoter recruited a group of women to compete as a traveling football troupe. It was conceived as a gimmick—in the vein of the Harlem Globetrotters—but the women who signed up really wanted to play. And they were determined to win. Hail Mary chronicles the highs and lows of the National Women’s Football League, which took root in nineteen cities across the US over the course of two decades. Drawing on new interviews with former players from the Detroit Demons, the Toledo Troopers, the LA Dandelions, and more, Hail Mary brings us into the stadiums where they broke records, the small-town lesbian bars where they were recruited, and the backrooms where the league was formed, championed, and eventually shuttered. In an era of vibrant second wave feminism and Title IX activism, the athletes of the National Women’s Football League were boisterous pioneers on and off the field: you’ll be rooting for them from start to finish.

Jean Luc Godard S Hail Mary

Jean Luc Godard S Hail Mary

Maryel Locke and Charles Warren present twelve original essays by film critics, filmmakers, theologians, and philosophers that examine the 1985 film Hail Mary, directed by Jean-Luc Godard, and its companion film, The Book of Mary, directed by Anne-Marie Miéville. (The films are collectively released under the title Hail Mary.) The interpretative essays offer a rich spectrum of analysis and opinion representing many divergent points of view about critical theory, the status of women, and the value of film as a medium. Locke and Warren also include two important interviews with Godard, brief biographies and complete filmographies of Godard and Miéville, a short breakdown of the two films including the English subtitles, and the script of the French dialogue to complete a remarkably comprehensive treatment of this important film. The only film based on the biblical story of the Virgin Mary, Godard’s Hail Mary is a contemporary Swiss/French representation of Mary’s virgin pregnancy, the birth of her son, and her relationship with Joseph and her young child. Miéville’s companion film is about a young girl named Mary whose parents get a divorce. While neither film is overtly religious, the initial release of Hail Mary brought public protests, court cases, a physical attack on Godard, and condemnation by the Pope.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary

At a boxing gym in Chicago, Mary Monahan accidentally knocks out the most handsome man she's ever met. After she wakes him up with a few slaps and some smelling salts, the very first thing he does is ask her out for ribs and beer. His name is Jimmy. He looks like a Gillette model. And he's just too hunky to resist. Jimmy "The Falcon" Falconi is mystified that Mary has absolutely no idea who he is. Mystified and refreshed. He is, after all, not your everyday NFL quarterback. He shops at Costco, has a soft spot for Pinterest, and is in the midst of an epic losing streak. Jimmy falls for Mary fast and hard, the way he does everything-balls out and like it's fourth and long. And he realizes he's finally met his match. That stamina he's so proud of? Doesn't stand a chance against her Kegels. But what they don't know is she's also his new physical therapist, recently hired by the Bears to work on his rotator cuff...and groin injury. If she can't help him, he'll be traded faster than they can say "offensive penetration." In spite of the thousands of internet memes featuring Jimmy's face with captions like: "HEY GIRL, WANT TO TOUCH MY BALLS?" Mary finds herself falling for him and his unrelenting desire to make her his. Until a toddler shows up at Jimmy's door. And throws their lives into total chaos.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary

Are you tired of going through the motions and feelings as though you have more to offer this world? Have people stereotyped you and, maybe, you have made their words about you a self-fulfilling prophecy? Escape the labels and titles projected on you by people and through faith, expect an encounter with destiny. Your life is about to change and you can thank God for it! - Ivory Bostick, Senior Pastor, Tree of Life Worship Center Hail Mary is a timely and revelatory book. It is written at a time when God is releasing His glory in the earth through His people. In order for this to happen, it is paramount that believers know who they are. They must know Christ, know that He dwells in them and that they are empowered by the power of the Highest. Hail Mary comes to ignite and rekindle that knowledge in believers so that, like Mary, what God has put in us produces a sound that releases His glory in the saved and to the unsaved. - Sandra Jones, Associate Pastor, Tree of Life Worship Center
