By Karl Ove Knausgaard
Within the 16th century, Antinous Bellori, a boy of 11, is misplaced in a dismal wooded area and stumbles upon sparkling beings, one wearing a spear, the opposite a flaming torch ... This occasion is decisive in Bellori's lifestyles, and he thereafter devotes himself to the pursuit and examine of angels, the intermediaries of the divine. starting within the backyard of Eden and hovering via to the current, A Time for every thing reimagines pivotal encounters among people and angels: the glow of the cherubim staring at over Eden; the profound love among Cain and Abel regardless of their alterations; Lot's disgrace in Sodom; Noah's isolation sooner than the flood; Ezekiel tied to his mattress, prophesying ferociously; the dying of Christ; and the emergence of sensual, mischievous cherubs within the 17th century. Alighting upon those dramatic scenes -- from the Bible and past -- Knausgaard's mind's eye takes flight: the result's a blinding reveal of storytelling at its majestic, spellbinding most sensible. Incorporating and demanding culture, legend, and the Apocrypha, those penetrating glimpses threat chilling questions: can the character of the divine endure switch, and will the immortal perish?

I rolled out, and wide receiver Randall Lane broke across the field in front of me as expected. The coverage was good, but I saw a window to complete the pass. As the ball left my hand, I could feel it come out a little high as I was attempting to elevate it over the head of a defender. Randall jumped for it, but the ball glanced off his fingertips and landed right in free safety Tony Driver’s hands. He ran the interception back to the five yard line. Our defense held, but the Irish kicked a field goal and took the lead, 31–30.
Then, in the blink of an eye, in one play, everything seemed to have slipped through my fingers. I should have known better than to jump on the ball, but I never would have imagined something like that could possibly end my career. Here’s the thing. I truly believe that God can use anything—even an injury—for good. I believe that God has a plan for people’s lives, even when that plan doesn’t work out the way we think it should. I don’t think God dislocated my shoulder, but in the normal processes of life, he allowed that to happen.
The season hadn’t even started yet, and already I was at a disadvantage. There was a positive side, though: playing flag football had kept me from getting hurt early on. Plus, I’d learned a lot of the fundamentals without wearing pads. Flag football is all about throwing, catching, and running as opposed to blocking and contact. The movement is very athletic and fluid, and it forces you to have a solid grasp of the basics. I ended up as the fourth quarterback of six my freshman year. The first three went to the freshman A team, and the next three went to the freshman B team.
