  • Struggling With Evangelicalism

    $17.00

    When evangelicals make a mess, who cleans it up?

    Many today are discarding the evangelical label, even if they still hold to the historic tenets of evangelicalism. But evangelicalism is a space, not just a brand, and living in that space is complicated. As a lifelong evangelical who happens to be a biracial Asian/white millennial, Dan Stringer has felt both included and alienated by the evangelical community and has wrestled with whether to stay or go. He sits as an uneasy evangelical insider with ties to many of evangelicalism’s historic organizations and institutions. Neither “everything’s fine” nor “burn it all down,” Stringer argues that we need four postures to grapple realistically and redemptively with evangelicalism. Without awareness, we don’t know our identity. Without appreciation, we risk succumbing to cynicism. Without repentance, we capitulate to idolatry. And without renewal, future generations will find this space even less inhabitable. This even-handed guide offers a thoughtful appreciation of evangelicalism’s history, identity, and strengths, and also lament at its blind spots, toxic brokenness, and complicity with injustice. From this complicated space, we can move forward with informed vision rather than resignation, and with hope for our future together.

  • 40 Questions About Roman Catholicism

    $23.99

    Straightforward answers about Roman Catholicism for a Protestant audience

    The Roman Catholic faith is one of the world’s most widespread religious traditions, yet the unique aspects of Roman Catholicism elicit perennial questions from adherents and outsiders alike. Such questions tend to fall into three major categories: historical backgrounds, theological matters, and personal relationships. Using Catholic Church documents and the writings of Catholic scholars, Baptist systematic theologian Gregg Allison distills the teachings of Catholicism around forty common questions about Catholic foundations, beliefs, and practices. The accessible question-and-answer format guides readers to the issues that concern them, including:
    * Where do Roman Catholic and Protestant beliefs differ?
    * What happens during a Roman Catholic Mass?
    * How does Roman Catholicism understand the biblical teaching about Mary?
    * Who are the saints and what is their role?
    * How can my Roman Catholic loved ones and I talk about the gospel?

    40 Questions About Roman Catholicism explores theology and practice, doctrine and liturgy, sacraments and Mariology, contributions and scandals, and many other things, clarifying both real and perceived differences and similarities with other Christian traditions.

  • Public Intellectuals And The Common Good

    $25.00

    In the midst of a divisive culture, public intellectuals speaking from an evangelical perspective have a critical role to play-within the church and beyond. Representing the church, higher education, journalism, and the nonprofit sector, these world-class scholars and practitioners cast a vision for intellectuals who promote human flourishing.

    Evangelical Christians are active across all spheres of intellectual and public life today. But a disconnect remains: the work they produce too often fails to inform their broader communities. In the midst of a divisive culture and a related crisis within evangelicalism, public intellectuals speaking from an evangelical perspective have a critical role to play-within the church and beyond. What does it look like to embrace such a vocation out of a commitment to the common good? Public Intellectuals and the Common Good draws together world-class scholars and practitioners to cast a vision for intellectuals who promote human flourishing. Representing various roles in the church, higher education, journalism, and the nonprofit sector, contributors reflect theologically on their work and assess current challenges and opportunities. What historically well-defined qualities of public intellectuals should be adopted now? What qualities should be jettisoned or reimagined? Public intellectuals are mediators-understanding and then articulating truth amid the complex realities of our world. The conversations represented in this book celebrate and provide guidance for those who through careful thinking, writing, speaking, and innovation cultivate the good of their communities.

  • Urban Ministry Reconsidered

    $45.00

Urban Ministry Reconsidered features a collection of original essays by leading scholars and practitioners that explores current issues and challenges in urban communities.

    Together these articles consider how cultural and structural frameworks have led to new conceptualizations and configurations of urban ministry. In addition, they examine the degree to which the social, spiritual, and organizational priorities of urban ministries have been reconceived in response to these shifts.

  • Demanding Liberty : An Untold Story Of American Religious Freedom

    $18.00

    Religious liberty is one of the most contentious political issues of our time. How should people of faith engage with the public square in a pluralist era? Some citizens hope to reclaim a more Christian vision of national identity, while others resist any religious presence at all.

    This dispute is not new, and it goes back to the founding era of American history. As the country was being formed, some envisioned a Christian nation where laws would require worship attendance and Sabbath observance. Others advocated for a thoroughly secular society where faith would have no place in public life. But neither extreme won the day, thanks to the unsung efforts of a Connecticut pastor who forged a middle way.

    Historian Brandon O’Brien unveils the untold story of how religious liberty came to be. Between the Scylla and Charybdis of theocracy and secularism, Baptist pastor Isaac Backus contended for a third way. He worked to secure religious liberty and freedom of conscience for all Americans, not just for one particular denomination or religious tradition. Backus’s theological ideas had social consequences, giving us insights into how people of faith navigate political debates and work for the common good.

    Backus lived in an age of both religious revival and growing secularism, competing forces much like those at work today. Then and now, people fiercely argue about the role of government and the limits of liberty. The past speaks into the present as we continue to demand liberty and justice for all.

  • Philosophy Of The Christian Religion

    $45.00

    Each field of study comes with its own set of questions; each period of time refines and redirects those questions. The Christian religion as we find it in the twenty-first century presents a unique set of problems to be solved and questions to be answered. In this introduction to the philosophy of the Christian religion, eminent philosopher and theologian Nancey Murphy applies the tools of philosophical analysis to a set of core yet contemporary religious questions: what does our historical moment mean for the possibility of knowing God? Is faith still possible? Does God intervene in human history? Is there such a thing as universal knowledge of God? Written with the needs of students encountering the philosophy of religion for the first time in mind, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental questions inherent in Christian faith. Murphy also provides tools for how to answer those questions.

  • Approaching Philosophy Of Religion

    $24.00

  • Invisible Worlds : Death Religion And The Supernatural In England 1500-1700

    $37.99

    How did traditional beliefs about the supernatural change as a result of the Reformation, and what were the intellectual and cultural consequences? Following a masterly interpretative introduction, Peter Marshall traces the effects of the Reformers’ assaults on established beliefs about the afterlife. He shows how debates about purgatory and the nature of hellfire acted as unwitting agents of modernization. He then turns to popular beliefs about angels, ghosts and fairies, and considers how these were reimagined and reappropriated when cut from their medieval moorings.

  • Urbansouls : Reflections On Youth Religion And Hip Hop Culture

    $10.99

    Hailed as “one of the most courageous and prophetic voices of our time” by Cornel West, the Rev. Osagyefo Sekou is an acclaimed activist, theologian, and author. Sekou served on on the front lines in the Ferguson uprising in the summer of 2014 and is one of today’s leading voices on social justice issues for his generation.

    Arguing that the religion must be used for the expansion of democracy, Gods, Gays, and Guns takes up the topics of gay marriage, economic justice, and social movements. Written in Parisian cafes, London’s ghettos, and the aftermath of Haiti’s earthquake and post-Katrina New Orleans, Gods, Gays, and Guns is a spiritual tour-de-force, revealing a crisis of faith in religion and democracy. urbansouls foreshadows the Ferguson uprising by offering keen insight on the social and cultural situation of the greater St. Louis region. Written while serving as a youth pastor and community center director in the late ’90s, Sekou reads the religious sensibilities of hip hop as a meaning-making activity for those who have been alienated from society’s traditional institutions such as the church.

  • Beyond The Modern Age

    $35.00

    The modern age has produced global crises that modernity itself seems incapable of resolving-deregulated capitalism, consumerism, economic inequality, militarization, overworked laborers, environmental destruction, insufficient health care, and many other problems. The future of our world depends on moving beyond the modern age. Bob Goudzwaard and Craig G. Bartholomew have spent decades listening to their students and reflecting on modern thought and society. In Beyond the Modern Age they explore the complexities and challenges of our time. Modernity is not one thing but many, encompassing multiple worldviews that contain both the source of our problems and the potential resources for transcending our present situation. Through an archaeological investigation and critique of four modern worldviews, Goudzwaard and Bartholomew demonstrate the need for new ways of thinking and living that overcome the relentless drive of progress. They find guidance in the work of Rene Girard on desire, Abraham Kuyper on pluralism and poverty, and Philip Rieff on culture and religion. These and other thinkers point the way towards a solution to the crises that confront the world today. Beyond the Modern Age is a work of grand vision and profound insight. Goudzwaard and Bartholomew do not settle for simplistic analysis and easy answers but press for nuanced engagement with the ideologies and worldviews that shape the modern age. The problems we face today require an honest, interdisciplinary, and global dialogue. Beyond the Modern Age invites us to the table and points the way forward.

  • Witness Of Religion In An Age Of Fear

  • Role Of Faith And Religion In The Life Of African Americans

    $10.00

    African-Americans who are highly involved in religion have fewer family problems than those who are not involved. The youths in these families have better emotional control and greater involvement in positive, productive activities.

    This book is a discussion of the history of African-Americans–through hundreds of years of cruelty and brutality in slavery, war, and segregation–and the role of Christian faith and churches in helping black people survive and overcome such enormous challenges. These facts offer powerful testament to the role of faith and religion in the lives of African-Americans.

    Encouragement, hope, faith, and determination will help us receive what God has for us if we serve Him! Author Florence Van Liew Crain hopes and prays that those who think they cannot make it will be able to get up, brush themselves off, and move forward.

  • Challenge Of Evil

    $33.00

    Belief in God in the face of suffering is one of the most intractable problems of Christian theology. Many respond to the spiritual challenge of evil by ignoring it, blaming God, or insisting on the inherent meaninglessness of life. In this book, William Greenway contends that we don’t have to deny our moral selves by either ignoring evil or abandoning our moral sensibilities toward it. We can open our eyes fully to suffering and evil, and our own complicity in them. We can do so because it is only in this full acceptance of the world’s guilt and our own that we make ourselves fully open to agape, to being seized by love of others and God. Inspired by the Jewish philosopher Emmanuel Levinas and the Christian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Challenge of Evil lovingly explains how we can look squarely at the overwhelming suffering in the world and still, by grace, have faith in a good and loving God.

  • Altars Where We Worship

    $28.00

    While a large percentage of Americans claim religious identity, the number of Americans attending traditional worship services has significantly declined in recent decades. Where, then, are Americans finding meaning in their lives, if not in the context of traditional religion? In this provocative study, the authors argue that the objects of our attention have become our god and fulfilling our desires has become our religion. They examine the religious dimensions of six specific aspects of American culture-body and sex, big business, entertainment, politics, sports, and science and technology-that function as “altars” where Americans gather to worship and produce meaning for their lives. The Altars Where We Worship shows how these secular altars provide resources for understanding the self, others, and the world itself. “For better or worse,” the authors write, “we are faced with the reality that human experiences before these altars contain religious characteristics in common with experiences before more traditional altars.” Readers will come away with a clearer understanding of what religion is after exploring the thoroughly religious aspects of popular culture in the United States.

  • Unified Particle Theory

    $10.00

    In this book, Localized Motion Researcher; Gordon W. Stull lays out in clear terms the Unified Particle Theory, which posits that all of humanity–and indeed all of creation–is more interconnected than we may realize.

    Though it is a heady topic, Mr. Stull’s use of language and metaphor brings the abstract into the realm of the understandable, grounding these high-minded concepts in imagery that the layman can appreciate. He goes on to suggest that the great mysteries of what brought the Universe into existence can be answered by the inclusion of God and, furthermore, that this vast interconnectedness is a result of Christ Jesus and the Kingdom of God being present in every person.

    Enjoyable for the naturalist and the spiritualist alike, Mr. Stull’s Unified Particle Theory sheds light onto some of the great issues of our time, and promotes thoughtful consideration.

  • Goddess Energy Returned 999

    $10.00

    Religion is one topic that could spur heated debates yet this institution, which is supposed to sow love and peace, has become an instigator of war and the division of mankind. Is there any way to unite all the people in worshipping the one God, The Creator of all?

    Joan Samuel’s view of religion is as a whole that is divided into many parts and believes that one is connected to the other like pieces of a puzzle. She says that the answers to perplexing questions about one’s religion could be found in another religion, and is a means to develop a deeper understanding of God. In her belief there is no wrong religion. Instead of hating one religion over another, she asks that each person respect the other and be united by thruth to attain a higher form of spirituality.

    “The Goddess Energy Returned 999-There Is No Religion Higher Than Truth” is an attempt to overturn the animosity between differing beliefs of mankind by looking beyond religion and focusing on the development of oneself-morally and spiritually.

  • Truth Of Who God Is

    $19.00

    The Truth of Who God Is was written for one reason: the Bible insists that we speak and teach our faith.

    2 Timothy 4:2-3 and 5: “Preach the word, be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. ….make full proof of thy ministry.”

    2 Timothy 2:15: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

    Romans 8:14 and John 1:12 say that I, a sinner, bound for hell, was given by faith the power to become an adopted son of the one and only living God.

    On July 30, 1972, C. Ray Sandefur was spiritually born again of the same eternal spirit that Grandfather Adam died from eternally (Romans 5:12). The power for this blessing of mercy and grace came from John 1:12, 3:3, 16, and 8:32. After being set free from the bondage of this world, he became a servant as his Savior Christ was. He, God in the flesh, washed him with the Word and cleaned up his sinful life. He, God, knelt down and washed His disciples’ dirty feet (John 13:5). He can wash your dirty heart.

    Read this book to clearly see and understand the truth from the one and only God of all creation, to understand who he is and how man was made in his image and should therefore respect him.

  • Betrayed Innocence : Catholicism Child And Member Harm Protestantism Compar

    $13.00

    “Betrayed Innocence: Catholicism Child and Member Harm, Protestantism Comparison” tells the story of Marty Jung’s harrowing sojourn through parochial education, a kind of dark night of the schools. In intimate detail he describes the mental and physical “harm” that was inflicted on him and his fellow students.

    Jung says he writes now because “this story needs to be told.” But he also goes on to try to put his painful experiences into a broader context, one that will provide a deeper understanding, and suggest remedies; so that this maltreatment will not happen again. In this pursuit, Jung delves into the beliefs and practices that animate religious educators, and more broadly, the faithful themselves.

    “Betrayed Innocence” is a book that will evoke painful memories in some, spark outrage in others-but which ought to inspire concern and compassion in all.

  • Political History Of The Bible In America

    $55.00

    “Biblical history, enriched by many religious and cultural traditions, flows into and is intertwined with our nation’s epic, both for better and for worse. To ignore that history is to cut ourselves off from our roots and to deny the ancestral experiences that forged our individual and collective identity.”
    -from the prologue

    This substantial work explores the interplay of religion and politics throughout the history of the United States. Paul D. Hanson traces American history back to colonial times, paying close attention to the role that biblical tradition has played in shaping the national story of the United States. He then presents a detailed study of politics in the Bible that is framed by the challenges and crises in American history. Students will learn how deeply religion has influenced both domestic and international policy and contributed to the nation’s sense of identity and purpose. After laying these biblical-historical foundations, Hanson considers a method of biblical interpretation that can speak to the diverse nation of today. He proposes an inclusive form of public moral discourse that invites full participation by members of all religious and philosophical groups.

  • Houseboats Drugs Government And The 4th Estate

    $13.00

    “Houseboats, Drugs, Government, and the 4th Estate” is a firsthand narrative history of the Sausalito houseboat culture as it evolved over the last four decades. The story centers on the Waldo Point Harbor, home to the largest collection of houseboats in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the 1960s, the harbor attracted overflow from the San Francisco drug scene, and what followed was a struggle by the core tenants to reclaim their community. In Houseboats, T. J. Nelsen, a Sausalito houseboater and former harbormaster, takes a hard look at the bureaucratic process involved in ridding his community of drugs and violence. He writes candidly about government and individual responsibilities and offers guidance to readers interested in tackling drug problems in their own communities. “Houseboats” is an extraordinary story about citizens, politicians, the press, and our criminal justice system.

  • Rise And Fall Of Capitalism

    $21.95

    The love of money and the denial of living wages cast dark shadows on almost every aspect of life of this planet. Washington is full of millionaires who seem to have forgotten their duty to the American people. And corporate executives seek to increase profits any way they can, even if it means cutting the legs out from under their employees. Welcome to America, the home of capitalism in all its glory!

    The Rise and Fall of Capitalism: A Social, Religious, and Political Perspective by Anthony Usher examines the history of capitalism and its impact on Americans and discusses solutions to even the playing field between the lower, middle, and upper classes based on biblical principles. In addition to discussing Americans love of money and the economic challenges facing our country, Usher also addresses sensitive religious-political issues that Christians and non-Christians struggle with, such as same-sex marriage, abortion, and the Arab-Israeli conflict. Economics, politics, religion, and current events are linked to the end of the world and the collapse of the best economic system devised by human hands, giving way to a new theocratic kingdom.

    10. Resurrection And Eternal Life
    Conclusion

    Additional Info
    Joseph A. Bracken argues that the failure of theology and science to generate cohesion is the lack of an integrated system of interpretation of the Christian faith that consciously accords with the insights and discoveries of contemporary science.

    In The World in the Trinity, Bracken utilizes the language and conceptual structures of systems theory as a philosophical and scientific grammar to show traditional Christian beliefs in a new light that is accessible and rationally plausible to a contemporary, scientifically influenced society. This account opens new possibilities for rethinking the God-world relationship, the Trinity, incarnation, creation, and eschatology within the context of a broader ecological and cosmological system. In re-describing these articles constitutive of Christian belief, the author is conscious of the vital importance of retaining the inherent power and meaning of these concepts. This volume freshly retrieves pivotal themes and concepts constitutive of the Christian tradition in a conscious rapprochement with current scientific understandings of nature.

  • Secular Government Religious People

    $28.50

    The field of church and state in America is stuck in an unproductive debate about competing rights. One side emphasizes the right to be free of government-sponsored religion, such as prayer at public ceremonies. In contrast, the other side emphasizes people’s right to express their religious character and beliefs, sometimes even through government.Secular Government, Religious People breaks free of this trap. Ira Lupu and Robert Tuttle present an original theory that makes the secular character of American government, rather than a set of individual rights, the centerpiece of religious liberty in the United States. Through a comprehensive treatment of relevant constitutional themes and through their attention to both historical concerns and contemporary controversies — including issues often in today’s news — Lupu and Tuttle define and defend the secular character of U.S. government.

  • Answer To Bad Religion Is Not No Religion Leaders Guide

    $11.00

    If you think the only logical response to bad Christianity is to leave Christianity completely, this book is for you. In an effort to help those who’ve been hurt by or turned off by negative religion, Martin Thielen explains that there is an alternative to abandoning religion: good religion. Thielen uses personal stories to illustrate the dangers of religion that is judgmental, anti-intellectual, and legalistic. While addressing the growth of the new atheism movement and the “Nones” (people that have no religious affiliation), this book argues that leaving religion is not practical, not helpful, and not necessary. Thielen provides counterparts to the characteristics of bad religion, explaining that good religion is grace-filled, promotes love and forgiveness, and is inclusive and hope-filled. Perfect for group study, the leader’s guide provides everything needed to facilitate sessions and provide options based on the time and style of each group.

  • Analogical Turn : Rethinking Modernity With Nicholas Of Cusa

    $39.50

    In the face of the late modern crisis of Western science and culture, The Analogical Turn recovers Nicholas of Cusa’s alternative vision of modernity, and, in doing so, develops a fresh perspective on the challenges of our time.

    In contrast to Cusa’s mainstream contemporaries, his appreciation of individuality, creativity, and scientific precision was deeply rooted in the analogical rationality of the Middle Ages. He revived and transformed the tradition of scientific realism in a manner which now, retrospectively, offers new insights into the completely ordinary chaos of postmodern everyday life.

    Johannes Hoff offers a new vision of the history of modernity and the related secularization narrative, a deconstruction of the basic assumptions of postmodernism, and an unfolding of a liturgically grounded concept of common sense realism in this original book.

    Arguing that we need historical studies to become more human, John Fea’s Why Study History also demonstrates how valuable–and useful!–history truly is.

    In this winsome and exceptionally well written introductory textbook, accomplished scholar of American history, John Fea, shows how studying the past can help us understand the present world in which we live. Deep historical thinking has the potential to transform the lives of individuals and society, because it enables us to understand those with whom we differ on important issues. Studying history can relieve us of our narcissism; cultivate humility, hospitality, and love; and transform our lives more fully into the image of Jesus Christ.

    Why Study History? explains why Christians should study history, how faith is brought to bear on our understanding of the past, and how studying the past can help us more effectively love God and others. Professors and students of history will value this unique, accessible introduction to the study of history and the historian’s vocation.

  • Catholicity Of Reason

    $34.50

    An original argument for the recovery of a robust notion of reason and truth in response to modern rationalism and postmodern skepticism

    The Catholicity of Reason explains the “grandeur of reason,” the recollection of which Benedict XVI has presented as one of the primary tasks in Christian engagement with the contemporary world.

    While postmodern thinkers — religious and secular alike — have generally sought to respond to the hubris of Western thought by humbling our presumptuous claims to knowledge, D. C. Schindler shows in this book that only a robust confidence in reason can allow us to remain genuinely open both to God and to the deep mystery of things. Drawing from both contemporary and classical theologians and philosophers, Schindler explores the basic philosophical questions concerning truth, knowledge, and being — and proposes a new model for thinking about the relationship between faith and reason.

    The reflections brought together in this book bring forth a dramatic conception of human knowing that both strengthens our trust in reason and opens our mind in faith.

  • Finding God Beyond Religion

    $16.99

    No longer sustained by easy answers, we may find ourselves standing before a three-pronged fork in the road: we can wander in the direction of conventional beliefs and practices, we can reject God and turn away from religion altogether, or we can embrace our uncertainty as an invitation to a more vital understanding of both God and religion.
    from the IntroductionDo you describe yourself as spiritual but not religious ? Whether young or old, church connected or not, are you spiritually restless for an authentic faith life but do not find conventional religious teachings pertinent to you?

    This accessible guide to a meaningful spiritual life is a salve for your soul. It reinterprets traditional religious teachings central to the Christian faith God, Jesus, faith, prayer, morality and more in ways that connect with people who have outgrown the beliefs and devotional practices that once made sense to them. It helps you find new ways to understand and relate to traditional, narrowly defined Christian truths that honor their full spiritual power and scope, and opens your mind and heart to the full impact of Christian teachings.

    1. The Study Of African Religion
    2. Defining African Religion
    3. The Cradleland Of Humankind
    4. The Cradleland Of Monotheism
    5. Manifestation Of African Religion

    Additional Info
    Worldwide scholarship has established the fact that Africa is the cradle land of humanity. Dr. Kurewa promotes the theory that African Religion could very easily have been the proto-religion of humanity, and a religion from which other monotheistic religions, such as Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Islam have their roots. The author shifts the traditional African historical studies stance of looking at Africa from Egypt alone, and instead looks at Africa from inside Africa. Dr. Kurewa invites a debate regarding our understanding of African Religion, the indigenous religion of millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa today.

  • Psychology Of Religion

    $40.00

    This book is written by a theologian, or to be more precise, by a theologian who is concerned professionally with religion and with pastoral psychology. The coming to terms with developments in the field of psycho-analysis has a twofold significance for the theologian. As a pastor I am often faced with the question of what actual view to take of psycho-analysis, and sometimes also how to regard the psycho-analyst as a therapist. (I am thinking for example of the problem of passing on a member of my congregation to a psychiatrist.) Among theologians there is often a kind of fear, as well as lack of knowledge; the theologian gets ‘cold feet’. Investigation could probably eliminate both ignorance and fear. On the other hand, through its theories psycho-analysis has become an important factor in our modern civilization, and one that theology must not ignore. Without analysis much modern ‘unbelief’ remains incomprehensible. Under this aspect too it is important for theology to be well informed about developments in psycho-analysis, and also to learn to istinguish more clearly than is generally the case between analysis as a therapeutic method (which rests on an objective and empirical investigation of the patient) and the theories which are and have been upheld by analysis; the latter reveal themselves as more evanescent than is oftern assumed.

  • Enoch Factor : The Sacred Art Of Knowing God

    $18.00

    16 Chapters

    Additional Info
    Never before has this country-indeed this world-faced such a need for a book that unites people, a book that reassures those disillusioned by faith that they can navigate their way back to God and even experience a profound spiritual awakening. For author and entrepreneur Steve McSwain, such an epiphany transformed his life. In “The Enoch Factor,” readers discover a kindred spirit in an author who understands how religion can subvert a spiritual life. His story will help them navigate their own spiritual journeys. More than a personal odyssey, “The Enoch Factor” is also a testimonial to the innate dangers of fundamentalist thinking. It is a persuasive argument for a more enlightened religious dialogue in America, one that affirms the goals of all religions-guiding followers in self-awareness, finding serenity and happiness, and discovering what the author describes as “the sacred art of knowing God.” Unapologetic and moving, McSwain’s take on The Almighty is sure to ignite spirited debate. Full of wisdom, humor, and truth, “The Enoch Factor” bridges the gap between secular and Christian book titles on spirituality, setting a new standard in both.

  • Moral Case Against Religious Belief

    $35.00

    This short book is intended to be read in an evening or even a sitting, though it provokes reflections that will go on for far longer. What it has to say is largely directed at the Christian faith, though it may apply to Judaism and Islam as well. Professor Sharpe is a philosopher and writes as a post-Christian. He does not believe in God for moral reasons and argues that in some ways morality is corrupted by religion. He claims that religious belief does not necessarily make its possessor an authority on matters moral and that spokesmen and spokeswomen for religion are often badly wrong about moral questions as a result of their religious commitment. Some virtues cease to be virtues when given a religious context, and consequently a religious life is not, in many respects, a good life to lead. Professor Sharpe has few quarrels with the teaching of Jesus and has tried to develop his argument as far as possible on the basis of values shared by Christians and non-Christians. But he firmly believes in the autonomy of morality. God is not required to guarantee morality and all the sureties and recognizances of morality are internal.

  • All Politics Is Religious

    $18.99

    Religious forces are turning to schools, health care, media, the economy and more with the agenda of establishing one faith perspective and its restrictions as the rule for everybody. But the times call for a reinvigorated expression of a variety of religious outlooks, and that means more than talk of good faith, strong feelings and the facts. It relies on a working understanding of why we speak, who we speak to, what to say, how to say it and where.

    All Politics Is Religious provides ideas and strategies for a clear, forceful, positive, effective and renewed religious expression that is all too often overlooked and under-represented. It identifies the religious themes in our great debates immigration, the needs of children and families, church-state separation and reproductive rights, including abortion and presents new language and methods for communication. In a voice that is warm, conversational and, at times, playful, it avoids attacking or ridiculing those who disagree. It steers away from the all-too-familiar political jargon left, right, liberal, conservative, socialist and instead relies on historical examples, current events and personal stories to illustrate the best ways to communicate the positive role faith can play in personal and public life.

  • Authenticity Of Faith

    $24.99

    A psychologist tests Freud’s claims that faith is a form of wishful thinking and belief in God a consoling illusion.

    Is faith simply a form of wishful thinking? Is belief in God merely a consoling illusion? So argued Sigmund Freud in The Future of an Illusion. And the force of Freud’s argument continues to be felt as it features prominently among critics of religion such as the New Atheists.

    But was Freud right? Until now, few have directly examined the plausibility of Freud’s argument. But here, in a groundbreaking analysis inspired by the religious types described by William James in his seminal The Varieties of Religious Experience, Richard Beck explores the motivational dynamics among ”summer Christians” and ”winter Christians.” Further, across a variety of laboratory studies, Beck examines how Christians variously engage with art (exploring what Beck has dubbed ”The Thomas Kinkade Effect”), doctrine (from the Incarnation to beliefs regarding the activity of the devil), and religious difference in a pluralistic world. In each instance, Beck analyzes the underlying motivations of the religious types, sifting through the varieties and illusions of religious experience.

    The Authenticity of Faith presents a radical ”New Apologetics,” an attempt to move beyond contentious philosophical and theological disputes to examine the scientific merits of Freud’s critique of faith. Here is an unlikely journey–the scientific search for an authentic faith; the outcome is sure to inspire reflection, conversation, and debate among believers and skeptics alike.

  • World Turned Upside Down

    $18.95

    18 Chapters

    Additional Info
    As the West turns on its religious and cultural traditions, it is succumbing to the ‘soft totalitarianism’ of irrational, relativist ideals. With the Islamists intent on returning the free world to the 7th century, it seems western civilization is no longer willing or able to defend modernity and rationalism. In “The World Turned Upside Down”, Melanie Phillips explains that the basic cause of this explosion of human irrationality is the slow but steady marginalisation of religion. We tell ourselves that faith and reason are incompatible, but the opposite is the case. It was Christianity and the Hebrew Bible, Phillips asserts, that gave us our concepts of reason, progress, and an orderly world on which science and modernity are based. Without its religious traditions, the West has drifted into mass derangement where truth and lies, right and wrong, victim and aggressor are all turned upside down. Scientists skeptical of global warming are hounded from their posts, Israel is demonised, and the US is vilified over the war on terror – all on the basis of blatant falsehoods and obscene propaganda. Worst of all, asserts Phillips, this abandonment of rationality leaves the West vulnerable to its legitimate threats. Faced with the very real challenges of spiraling demographics and violent, confrontational Islamism, the West is no longer willing or able to defend the modernity and rationalism that it once brought into being.

  • Religion Gone Astray

    $18.99

    Virtually everyone acknowledges difficulty with some aspect of their own religious tradition, even if they are wholly devoted to their faith identity. These vulnerabilities can inhibit meaningful personal engagement with a faith tradition but they can also feed misunderstanding between religious institutions and undermine any hope of authentic interfaith dialogue.
    Expanding on the conversation started with their very successful first book, the Interfaith Amigos–a pastor, a rabbi and an imam–probe more deeply into the problem aspects of our religious institutions to provide a profound understanding of the nature of what divides us. They identify four common problem areas in the Abrahamic faiths–exclusivity, violence, inequality of men and women, and homophobia–and their origins. They explore the ways critics use these beliefs as divisive weapons. And they present the ways we can use these vulnerabilities to open the doors for more profound personal relationships, collaboration required to address our common issues, and true interfaith healing.

    Is there really a monolithic “black church”? Distilling the arguments of Pinn’s important and provocative work in Terror and Triumph, this brief work asks the central question: What really is African American religion?

    Sketching the religious landscape of African American communities today, Pinn makes explicit the tension in traditional conversations about black religion that privilege either Christianity in particular or organizations (with doctrines and creeds) in general. Discussing the misunderstandings and historical inaccuracies of such views, Pinn offers an alternate theory of black religion that begins with a basic push for embodied meaning as its core impulse.

  • Celtic Christian Spirituality

    $18.99

    The Celtic Christians beheld the world around them and perceived the divine life of God upholding every aspect of the material universe. Their prayers and poems, their liturgies and their theological texts give Christians a sense of faith that is confident in a merciful and infinitely creative, healing God.
    In this introduction to Celtic Christian spirituality, Mary C. Earle presents the primary texts from the Celtic Christian tradition–selections from the writings of Pelagius, Eriugena and St. Patrick, as well as prayers and poems from Wales, the Outer Hebrides and Ireland. These essential texts direct humanity to read the “book of creation” as well as the book of scripture, and call us to remember that “matter matters.” Earle’s engaging facing-page commentary explores how faithful Christians and spiritual seekers use the writings of this lively tradition as ways of embodying and living the gospel. Topics include:
    * Creation
    * Daily life and work
    * Incarnation
    * Pilgrimage
    * Praise
    * Social justice
    * Prayer

  • Rule For Solitaries

    $24.95

    The monk Grimlaicus (ca. 900) wrote a rule for those who, like himself, pursued the solitary life within a monastic community. Never leaving their cell yet participating in the liturgical life of the monastery through a window into the church, these “enclosed” sought to serve God alone. Beyond the details of horarium, reception of newcomers, diet, and clothing, Grimlaicus details practical measures for maintaining spiritual, psychological, and physical health, and for giving counsel to others. Scripture, the Rule of St. Benedict, and the teachings of early ecclesial and monastic writers form the kernel of Grimlaicus’s wise and balanced rule, presented here for the first time in English translation.

  • Questioning Assumptions : Rethinking The Philosophy Of Religion

    $26.00

    Tom Christenson turns philosophy inside out in this remarkable new book. Starting with the ongoing public debate over God’s existence, he approaches traditional arguments in philosophy of religion and peels back their veneers to uncover the questionable assumptions underlying each. This brief, valuable book drives the reader to reconsider how to think about the most fundamental questions that surround matters of faith and religious belief.

    For Christenson, three key assumptions need unpacking: that believing is the focal act of faith; that the basic religious question is about the existence of God; and that religious language actually refers to some thing, namely God. He interrogates each for its adequacy and implications for larger questions of faith and reason. By making these assumptions explicit, Christenson explores intriguing new ways of looking at the rationality of faith.

    Augmenting his analysis and critique, Christenson concludes each chapter with important questions for reflection. These questions carry through the critical stance that he asks of himself and his readers, challenging all to rethink and re-imagine whether religious faith is rational.

  • Ranking Faiths : Religious Stratification In America

    $55.00

    Ranking Faiths: Religious Stratification in America discusses how religion shapes access to power, privilege, and prestige in the U.S., both historically and today. James D. Davidson and Ralph E. Pyle dispel the idea that the U.S. was founded on the principle of religious equality for all, documenting how religion has been a factor in the allocation of power from the colonial period through the present. From the time of the earliest settlements in America through today, the book demonstrates that some religious groups have had more access to economic, political, and social rewards than others, and they have benefitted from laws and customs that have maintained religious inequality over time. While a few religious groups, such as Catholics and Jews, have experienced significant upward mobility over time, the social status of most has remained remarkably static over time. The book shows how religious inequalities developed, highlight where they remain in society today, and discuss what Americans can and should do about it.

  • Ministers Of The Law

    $32.50

    In Ministers of the Law Jean Porter articulates a theory of legal authority derived from the natural law tradition. As she points out, the legal authority of most traditions rests on their own internal structures, independent of extralegal considerations – legal houses built on sand, as it were. Natural law tradition, on the other hand, offers a basis for legal authority that goes beyond mere arbitrary commands or social conventions, offering some extralegal authority without compromising the independence and integrity of the law.

    Yet Porter does more in this volume than simply discuss historical and theoretical realms of natural law. She carries the theory into application to contemporary legal issues, bringing objective normative structures to contemporary Western societies suspicious of such concepts.

  • Who Are The Real Chosen People

    $16.99

    Religious people who define themselves as monotheists have often advanced the idea that their relationship with God is unique and superior to all others. Theirs supersedes those who came before, and is superior to those who have followed. This phenomenon tends to be expressed in terms not only of supersessionism, but also “chosenness,” or “election.” Who is most beloved by God? What expression of the divine will is the most perfect? Which relationship reflects God’s ultimate demands or desire?
    In this fascinating examination of the religious phenomenon of chosenness, Reuven Firestone explores the idea of covenant, and the expressions of supersessionism as articulated through the scriptures of the three major monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. He explores how and why the ongoing competition and friction between these religions came about, and offers thoughts about how to overcome it.

    Additional Info
    Providing a unique perspective on China’s changing relationship with religion, this groundbreaking book explores the role the Chinese state continues to play in religious revival today. Over the past several decades, China has experienced a rapid expansion of religious spaces and activities. More recently, a growing middle-class urban society has fueled an upsurge in Chinese domestic tourism. Faiths on Display challenges the common separation of religious and tourist activities, showing how these practices overlap and blend together. A group of leading scholars explores the unlikely interaction between these exuberant phenomena, finding a surprisingly clear lens through which to view a rapidly transforming society. Even the most casual observer is struck by the Chinese rediscovery of traditional culture, particularly at revived religious festivals and pilgrimages in suburbs, rural areas, and at China’s margins where religious practices of ethnic minorities attract particular tourist attention.

    A set of fascinating case studies shows how state organizations are helping revive “sacred spaces” as exploitable sites for tourism development and revenue generation. While this may appear to be a straightforward collision of Chinese tradition with modernization, the contributors argue that the results of combining religion and tourism offer important insights not only into the practice of religion and the rise of “leisure culture” in contemporary China, but also into the changing and contested nature of state governance. The policies of an authoritarian, modernizing state obviously influence both religion and tourism, but religious practices, the book clearly illustrates, tend to slip out of state control, and tourist tastes push development into directions not anticipated or welcomed by the state.

    Special Features:

    -Offers a unique perspective on the Chinese state’s changing relationship with religion, and the role the state continues to play in religious revival in China today

    -Challenges that common separation of religious and tourist activities, showing how these practices overlap and blend together

    -Shows how state efforts to control cultural practices and economic transformations are both unstable and highly contested

    -Presents a case for tourism as a crucial framework within which to better understand both the revival of religion in contemporary China as well as the state’s efforts to usurp, authorize, and narrate that revival for its own

  • Good And Bad Ways To Think About Religion And Politics

    $17.50

    Clear, useful guide to a subject too often characterized by confusion and loud rhetoric

    “There is nothing greater than indignation to stimulate a writer to write, and my outrage has been stirred mightily by reading so many wrongheaded ‘takes’ on how religion and politics ought to be related,” says Robert Benne.

    In this book Benne describes and analyzes the two main bad ways of relating religion and politics – “separationism” and “fusionism” – and offers a better way that he calls “critical engagement.” He first explains this approach in theoretical terms and then reflects on the practical ways in which such convictions reach the public sphere of policy. This better way derives in large part from the Lutheran tradition, with a few tweaks to adapt the tradition to deal with the new challenges of our present situation.

  • Promise Of Religious Naturalism

    $74.95

    The Promise of Religious Naturalism explores religious naturalism as a distinctly promising form of contemporary religious ethics. Examining how religious naturalism responds to the challenges of recent religious transformations and ecological peril worldwide, author Michael Hogue argues that religious naturalism is emerging as an increasingly plausible and potentially rewarding form of religious moral life. Beginning with an introduction of religious naturalism in the larger context of religious and ethical theories, the book undertakes the first extended study of the works of religious naturalists Loyal Rue, Donald Crosby, Jerome Stone, and Ursula Goodenough. Hogue pays particular attention to the ethical components of religious naturalism in relation to religious pluralism and ecological issues.

  • Ethics And Time

    $85.00

    Ethics and Time attempts to locate ethical thinking within the response to the questions raised by temporal orientation. Time is the matrix and Moloch of social life and, for the purpose of this book, the starting point for ethical reflection. Nimi Wariboko boldly attempts to reconceptualize temporal orientation and begin a new discussion of time and ethics, using the creative synthesis of ethology, political philosophy, sociological, and intercultural perspectives.

    Most academic discourse contextualizes temporal orientation in terms of either times of origin and time preference. Wariboko identifies a third option, developing the theory and methodology that render it an object of ethical analysis and liberatory thought. He suggests that temporal orientation is the production of new temporalities that allow humans to manifest their potentialities and creatively resist obstacles that impede their thriving. Wariboko liberates the notion and habit of temporal orientation from excessive concern with conservatism and utilitarianism, showing how ethicists can use the theory of temporal orientation to question all present temporal conditions in the name of freedom.

  • God That Did Not Fail

    $16.95

    Secular humanists and other “progressives” have been predicting the demise of religion for the past 250 years. But they keep running into a problem: those who were supposed to be liberated by the secular gospel that God is Dead aren’t buying it. Except for some parts of western Europe and in countries culturally destroyed by Communism, secularization in the radical sense has not occurred.

    While it has not obliterated the religious impulse, however, the drive towards “progressive irreligion” has, Robert Royal believes, encouraged ignorance of religion’s central role in the development of the West. In The God That Did Not Fail, Royal offers an original reading of religion in ancient Greece and Rome, of Christianity and Judaism, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and Reformation, the several modern Enlightenments, culminating with a profound assessment of our current postmodern moment. He concludes that since religion is a permanent part of human nature and of the particular character of the West, our efforts should be directed not into a quixotic effort to deny the undeniable, especially as we face challenges from Islamic fundamentalism, but into promoting a well thought out and dynamic interplay of faith, reason, and modern freedoms.

    Additional Info
    The role that race and religion play in American presidential elections is attracting national attention like never before. The 2008 presidential candidates reached out to an unprecedented number of racial and religious voting constituencies including African Americans, Latinos, Muslims, Mainline Protestants, Catholics, Evangelicals, Jews, women, the non-religious, and more. Religion, Race, and the American Presidency focuses on the roles of these racial and religious groups in presidential elections over the last forty years, and in elections since 2000 in particular. Drawing upon survey data, interviews, and case studies of recent presidents, the contributors examine the complicated relationships between American presidents and key racial and religious groups. The paperback edition features a new capstone chapter on the 2008 elections.

  • Complex Reality Of Religious Peacebuilding

    $95.00

    Acknowledgments
    Introduction
    1. The Development Of Religious Peacebuilding
    2. Conceptual Framework Of Religious Peacebuilding
    3. A Screening Model For Religious Peacebuilding Resources And Obstacles:A Case Study Of The Russian Orthodox Church
    Conclusion
    Bibliography
    Notes

    Additional Info
    This insightful book focuses on the multifaceted subject of sustainable religious peacebuilding. Katrien Hertog discusses the ways in which religious actors can utilize resources to prevent violent conflict from occurring, reduce conflict when it does happen, and rebuild bridges between sides in after conflict has ceased. She examines the emergence of the field of religious peacebuilding, developing a conceptual framework that outlines how aspects of religious organizations can contribute to effectual peacebuilding and creating a screening model that allows readers to analyze the resources and obstacles to peacebuilding in-depth.

    Using the Russia and the Orthodox Church as a major case study, Hertog clearly shows what the concrete resources for peace are, how they are applied, what obstacles are hindering their realization, and how these resources can be better utilized and supported. This book tackles the controversial issue of the place of religion and religious organizations in the peace process. While recognizing that no simple answer exists in solving ethnic, religious, and tribal conflict, Hertog presents the ways religion can be used to create lasting, sustainable peace.

  • If The Foundations Are Destroyed

    $16.99

    “Our dangers are of two kinds, those which affect our religion, and those which affect our government. They are, however, so closely allied that they cannot, with propriety, be separated. The foundations which support the interests of Christianity are also necessary to support a free and equal government like our own…. Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all the blessings which flow from them must fall with them.”

    -Rev. Jedidiah Morse, 1799

    The author believes Rev. Morse’s warning is still applicable today. The basic Biblical principles upon which American civil government were founded are rapidly disappearing in our society. Yet he doesn’t simply point out the problem; he also explains how the reinstatement of specific Biblical principles into American society and government can reverse the damage.

    The foundations can be rebuilt.

    Additional Info
    After the surprising publishing success of the so-called New Atheists it has become clear that there is a market for critical discussions about religion. A religion is much more complex than a set of beliefs which cannot be proven, as the New Atheists argue. There is, in fact, much more to religion and much more to the arguments about its truth claims.

    This book seeks to bring together a range of discussions, both critical and apologetic, each of which examines some part of religion and its functions. Half of the contributors are critical of some element of religion and the other half are apologetic in nature, seeking to defend or extend some particular religious argument. Covering a wide range of topics, including ethics, religious pluralism, the existence of God, and reasonableness of Islam, these pieces have in common arguments that are made in careful and scholarly ways-they represent reasonable perspectives on a wide swath of contemporary religious debates, in contrast to the unreasonableness that creeps into discussions on religion in American society.

  • This Bloodless Liberty

    $15.99

    Government is totally out of control…
    Is there hope for America’s future?

    Darkness falls over America.

    As ancient Rome, our Republic rots from within. Government corruption leads to citizen despair. It’s our right, even our citizen duty to enforce the Constitution – but how? Secession, petitions, demonstrations, nullification, and anarchy are proven failures. At this point, voting is futile, also; the rare statesman has no chance against the corrupt supermajority in Congress. What can we do?

    This Bloodless Liberty presents an eye-opening glimpse at America’s predator and parasite class including careers you never imagined are feeding the corruption. Debunking 10 lies that government uses to transform its sovereigns into serfs, AmericaAgain! founder David Zuniga shows how you can leave politics and join history’s first neural network for self-government. We have lawful power to enforce our Constitution, if we will only have the wisdom to do so.

    The Internet offers liberty today as the printing press did 575 years ago. Two million children no longer attend schools yet are more familiar with civics and history than are most adults. Millions have lawfully stopped filing tax returns thus are no longer financing a crime cartel. The Tea Party movement has caused millions to see that both political parties are corrupt. If the Tea Party movement is today’s Paul Revere, AmericaAgain! is Madison on a motorcycle.

    We The People can seize this historic opportunity to stop today’s syndicate of politicians, financiers, bureaucrats, military-corporate moguls, and the massive parasite sector. Indeed there is hope. If we exercise courage and repentance, our best days may be ahead. If we fear God and not man, we can be AmericaAgain!

  • Devil Is A Father Too

    $13.95

    The Devil is a Father, Too, is birthed out of a series of dreams the Lord began to give me allowing me to experience the unseen world. Divinely set up visitation of the Spirit realm and the encounter of the truth, some, I refer to as a sneak preview of the supernatural realm. By which the Lord displayed the undeniable power of His word giving me a deeper understanding and knowledge of the truth that absolutely set me free and transformed my life forever. Often times, the Lord uses the mess of our life into a life time message to demonstrate and disclose His power and reach out to mankind. This revealed truth has consequently birthed a passion and pursuit of purpose that inspired me to share in this book. The father you submit to has full power to control you. While the final choice and the decision is left up to you, but the choice and the decision you make has a very serious and eternal consequences. Therefore, this book is inspired by the Holy Spirit to give you insight into the Truth so you make the right choice from the standpoint of understanding and knowledge of the truth.

    The Christian Heritage: Problems and Prospects delves into the history of the western Christian heritage. Challenges to the Christian heritage, a heritage nourished both by Judaism and by the western classics, have been stimulated by the very success of the way of life that is promoted, a way of life that is somehow responsible for the emergence of modern science with its revolutionary technology.

    The reader is encouraged to reconsider authors prominent in the religious tradition of the West. Guidance is provided for examinations of the fundamental assumptions and the enduring questions by which Western Civilization has been guided and challenged for millennia. The enduring texts that we in the West repeatedly encounter, especially the most challenging of them, are apt to draw upon, and to illuminate the fundamental assumptions and the enduring questions by which Western Civilization has been guided and challenged for millennia. Vital to Western Civilization has long been the Christian Heritage. That Heritage has been taken for granted in our general education, in something as prosaic as the everyday operations of our legal system, and perhaps even in our economic and other social arrangements.

  • Phenomenology And The Holy

    $100.00

    SCM Veritas engages in critical and original questions of pressing concern to both philosophers and theologians. The major concern of all books in this series is to display a rigorous theological critique of categories not often thought to be theological in character, such as phenomenology or metaphysics which are mainly considered as philosophical categories. All the books in this series aim to illustrate that without theology, something essential is lost in our accounts of such categories not only in the abstract but in the way in which we inhabit the world. Phenomenology and the Holy is a study of the holy which attempts to find this both in the ordinary and in the sublime, thus challenging the reduction of the holy to a discrete and separated field of experience. Phenomenology is a key area of twentieth-century philosophy in which there is a wide interest, not only among philosophers but also among theologians and religious studies scholars.

  • Religious Liberty Volume 1

    $69.50

    The Collected Works on Religious Liberty comprehensively collects the scholarship, advocacy, and explanatory writings of leading scholar and lawyer Douglas Laycock, illuminating every major religious liberty issue from both theoretical and practical perspectives.

    This first volume gives the big picture of religious liberty in the United States. It fits a vast range of disparate disputes into a coherent pattern, from public school prayers to private school vouchers to regulation of churches and believers. Laycock clearly and carefully explains what the law is and argues for what the law should be. He also reviews the history of Western religious liberty from the American founding to Protestant-Catholic conflict in the nineteenth century, using this history to cast light on the meaning of our constitutional guarantees.

    Collected Works on Religious Liberty is unique in the depth and range of its coverage. Laycock helpfully includes both scholarly articles and key legal documents, and unlike many legal scholars, explains them clearly and succinctly. All the while, he maintains a centrist perspective, presenting all sides – believers and nonbelievers alike – fairly.

    Additional Info
    The Pious Sex strives to enlighten the reader with respect to the relationship between women and religion. The notion that there is a special relationship between women and piety may call to mind the worst of the prejudices associated with women over the ages: the characterization of women as superstitious and inherently irrational creatures who must be kept firmly in hand by the patriarchal establishment. The suggestion that there is a special relationship between women and piety conjures up the most oppressive picture of womanly virtue. The contributors of this volume revisit the claim that women constitute the pious sex and investigate the implications of such a designation.

    This collection of original essays examines the relationship between women and religion in the history of political thought broadly conceived. This theme is a remarkably revealing lens through which to view the Western philosophical and poetical traditions that have culminated in secular and egalitarian modern society. The essays also give highly analytical accounts of the manifold and intricate relationships between religion, family, and public life in the history of political thought, and the various ways in which these relationships have manifested themselves in pagan, Jewish, Christian, and post-Christian settings.

  • Searching For God In The Sixties

    $80.00

    This paradigm-breaking book dares to rethink the whole of the ’60s experience, not from a political or sociological but from an historical/theological perspective. Camille Paglia wrote that ‘the spiritual history of the sixties has yet to be written.’ This is that book. The book’s chapters each correspond to a line in Emily Dickinson’s poem ‘Finding is the first act.’ The parallel to Dickinson’s experience in the psychic wilderness demonstrates just how much the experience of the ’60s was part of an ongoing American story not an aberration. Though it seems contradictory, this book argues for an appreciation of the three ’60s: 1960s, 1860s, 1660s, each a chapter of the religious core of the American story.

  • Gender Religion And Migration

    $100.00

    Gender, Religion and Migration is the first multidisciplinary collection on the intersection of gender and religion in the integration of different groups of immigrants, migrant workers, youths, and students in host societies in Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America and North America. It investigates the linkages and tensions between religion and integration from a gendered perspective. By examining the contemporary significance of religion in the context of global migrations, the fifteen research-based essays provide new insights and perspectives on the often missed link between the differing ways in which male and female immigrants find meanings of faith-beliefs and religious traditions to belong in foreign lands, even residents’ faith-based activism involving illegal migrants. While religion provides mechanisms for negotiating immigrant life in the host countries, it also inhibits integration of immigrants especially in countries where the majority religion is different. This dual phenomenon of religion promoting and inhibiting integration is critically examined in the lives of Filipinos, Brazilians, Indians, Polish, Mexicans, Vietnamese, Kenyans, Nigerians, and Middle Eastern peoples. The book also engages various theories on gender, religion and migration and demonstrates the fluidity of gender construction as people cross borders.

    Conclusion: The Turning Of The Tide: Theology, Religion, And Economics

    Additional Info
    Even though economic downturns are still followed by upturns, fewer people benefit from them. As a result, economic crisis is an everyday reality that permanently affects all levels of our lives. The logic of downturn, developed in this book, helps make sense of what is going on, as the economy shapes us more deeply than we had ever realized, not only our finances and our work, but also our relationships, our thinking, and even our hopes and desires. Religion is one arena shaped by economics and thus part of the problem but, as Joerg Rieger shows, it might also hold one of the keys for providing alternatives, since it points to energies for transformation and justice. Rieger’s hopeful perspective unfolds in stark contrast to an economy and a religion that thrive on mounting inequality and differences of class.

  • Wilderness The Nation And The Electronic Era

    $132.00

    The Wilderness, the Nation, and the Electronic Era: American Christianity and Religious Communication 1620-2000: An Annotated Bibliography contains over 2,400 annotations of books, book chapters, essays, periodical articles, and selected dissertations dealing with the various means and technologies of Christian communication used by clergy, churches, denominations, benevolent associations, printers, booksellers, publishing houses, and individuals and movements in their efforts to disseminate news, knowledge, and information about religious beliefs and life in the United States from colonial times to the present.

    Providing access to the critical and interpretive literature about religious communication is significant and plays a central role in the recent trend in American historiography toward cultural history, particularly as it relates to numerous collateral disciplines: sociology, anthropology, education, speech, music, literary studies, art history, and technology. The book documents communication shifts, from oral history to print to electronic and visual media, and their adaptive uses in communication networks developed over the nation’s history. This reference brings bibliographic control to a large and diverse literature not previously identified or indexed.

  • Nature Of Doctrine

    $33.00

    The Nature of Doctrine is one of the most influential works of academic theology of the past fifty years. Originally published in 1984, this book sets forth the central tenets of a post liberal approach to theology, emphasizing a cultural-linguistic approach to religion and a rule theory of doctrine. In addition to his account of the nature of religion, Lindbeck also addresses the resolution of historic doctrinal conflict among Christian communities, the relationship between Christianity and other religions, and the nature and task of theology itself. A programmatic work in what is now known as postilberal theology, The Nature of Doctrine has generated wide debate across the academy and the church and has influenced a generation of leading contemporary theologians and scholars of religion. This twenty-fifth anniversary edition includes an introduction by theologian Bruce D. Marshall, a new afterword by the author, and a complete bibliography of Lindbeck’s work.

    The Future In Our Hands: Citizens Building A Social Contract Across Civilizations

    Additional Info
    To Make the Earth Whole studies the art of citizen diplomacy-a process that can address clashes of religion and culture across regional lines even when traditional negotiations between governments can fail. While faith and regional differences have been sources of division around the world in recent decades, millions of citizens are also creating bonds of friendship and collaboration that are forming the basis of a global community.

    Drawing on the experiences gleaned from years practicing citizen diplomacy in some of the world’s most politically charged climates, scholar-practitioner of conflict resolution and rabbi Marc Gopin describes his work in Syria as a central case study of the book. The author outlines the strategic basis for creating community across lines of enmity, the social network theory to explain how this happens, and the long term vision required for a progressive but inclusive global community that respects religious communities even as it limits their coercive power over others. This powerful and practical book outlines an incremental and evolutionary strategy of positive change that stands a strong chance of success, even in today’s most conservative and repressive religious and political contexts.

    To Make the Earth Whole also examines the ethical challenges of citizen diplomacy from the perspectives of both Western and Eastern philosophies and religions. The world’s wisdom traditions are essential in devising a way for citizens to develop the foundations for global community.

    – A compelling combination of the latest theories in conflict resolution and rich personal experience in the field of interreligious peacebuilding, particularly in the Middle East.

    – Central case study of Syria sheds light on a little-understood country that is key to efforts towards peace in the region.

    – Accessibly written for use by students, scholars and practitioners in the field of conflict resolution, government officials, and general readers interested in the potential for citizen diplomacy to make a positive change in our world.

    Additional Info
    Many of the available resources for teaching courses on feminist spirituality either come from the 1980s to 1990s or are written by the same authors as those earlier texts, thus showing us a progression of spiritual beliefs and practices of “second-wave” feminists. While this is useful, when addressing this topic with university students it is also important to show the ways in which spirituality has been rethought by “third-wave” feminists. This rethinking can be found in various small circulation ‘zines, but these are not always accessible to a wide audience. This anthology addresses the experiences of third-wave feminists in the construction and reformulation of spirituality. It addresses the experiences of young feminists and others who have been influenced by second-wave feminist spirituality and engaged in developing and critiquing themes of Goddess religion, queer theory, protest movements, and popular culture.

    Chapter 10. The Human Problem And Its Solution: Ernest Becker And Christian Theology

    Additional Info
    In this book, Jarvis Streeter details Ernest Becker’s anthropological theories and compares them with traditional and contemporary Christian thought on human nature, sin, and salvation in order to see how the two approaches compare and where Becker might have insights to offer contemporary Christian thinkers.

    Ernest Becker was a pioneer in the interdisciplinary study of human nature and motivation, drawing from the fields of evolutionary biology, psychology, psychiatry, cultural anthropology, sociology, philosophy and religion to create what he termed a Science of Man. His goal was to understand the most basic human motives, particularly those that led to evil behavior in order to ameliorate them and create a more humane world. He concluded, following the thought of Alfred Adler, Otto Rank and philosophical and religious existentialism, that the related urges to avoid death anxiety, gain self-esteem and symbolically deny death were the key human motives–ones which were also responsible for human evil–and that religion has had a complex role to play for both good and ill in human history.

    Additional Info
    In Mary Magdalene’s Dreaming Steven Strong and Evan Strong continue their esoteric journey tracing the origins of religion that they began their first book, Constructing A New World Map. Strong and Strong examine the Gnostic Scriptures detailing the words and deeds of Mary and Jesus recently found at Nag Hammadi. They were, as Jesus stated in the Gospel of Thomas, custodians of a secret tradition. Jesus insisted he is but the caretaker of a “bubbling spring that I have tended”. The authors further assert their belief that this “bubbling spring” is identical to the “secret place” aboriginal elder, Bill Neidjie, urges all to discover and it is their contention that a closer inspection of the ancient mystical spring Jesus and Mary accessed is evident in many Gnostic texts. The secret knowledge Mary and Jesus preached, stripped of cultural and geographic differences, is undoubtedly the purest replication of the Dreaming since the first mariners were banished from Australia.
