A Short History of the Jews (Paperback): Michael Brenner A Short History of the Jews (Paperback)
Michael Brenner; Translated by Jeremiah Riemer
R565 R462 Discovery Miles 4 620 Save R103 (18%) Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This is a sweeping and powerful narrative history of the Jewish people from biblical times to today. Based on the latest scholarship and richly illustrated, it is the most authoritative and accessible chronicle of the Jewish experience available. Michael Brenner tells a dramatic story of change and migration deeply rooted in tradition, taking readers from the mythic wanderings of Moses to the unspeakable atrocities of the Holocaust; from the Babylonian exile to the founding of the modern state of Israel; and from the Sephardic communities under medieval Islam to the shtetls of eastern Europe and the Hasidic enclaves of modern-day Brooklyn. The book is full of fascinating personal stories of exodus and return, from that told about Abraham, who brought his newfound faith into Canaan, to that of Holocaust survivor Esther Barkai, who lived on a kibbutz established on a German estate seized from the Nazi Julius Streicher as she awaited resettlement in Israel. Describing the events and people that have shaped Jewish history, and highlighting the important contributions Jews have made to the arts, politics, religion, and science, "A Short History of the Jews" is a compelling blend of storytelling and scholarship that brings the Jewish past marvelously to life.

To Heal a Fractured World - The Ethics of Responsibility (Paperback): Jonathan Sacks To Heal a Fractured World - The Ethics of Responsibility (Paperback)
Jonathan Sacks
R382 R324 Discovery Miles 3 240 Save R58 (15%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

One of the most respected religious thinkers of our time makes an impassioned plea for the return of religion to its true purpose--as a partnership with God in the work of ethical and moral living.
What are our duties to others, to society, and to humanity? How do we live a meaningful life in an age of global uncertainty and instability? In To Heal a Fractured World, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks offers answers to these questions by looking at the ethics of responsibility. In his signature plainspoken, accessible style, Rabbi Sacks shares with us traditional interpretations of the Bible, Jewish law, and theology, as well as the works of philosophers and ethicists from other cultures, to examine what constitutes morality and moral behavior. "We are here to make a difference," he writes, "a day at a time, an act at a time, for as long as it takes to make the world a place of justice and compassion." He argues that in today's religious and political climate, it is more important than ever to return to the essential understanding that "it is by our deeds that we express our faith and make it real in the lives of others and the world."
To Heal a Fractured World--inspirational and instructive, timely and timeless--will resonate with people of all faiths.

Ever wonder how to handle the tough ethical issues we face? The Only Way Is Ethics is an accessible, practical series of guides designed to equip both new and mature Christians to think through important and current ethical issues in the light of the Bible and theology. It offers help to Christians facing these issues themselves and for ministers as they provide guidance. Each guide (also available separately in print or as an e-book) has a 'Go Deeper' section listing resources for further reference. Sean Doherty has provided us with a remarkable resource. It is remarkable, first, because it is deeply rooted in his own experience and reflection as someone who has experienced same-sex attraction.

Finally, Sean offers an account that is remarkably accessible and which will be of help to a wide range of people. It is one of the best resources out there. Revd Dr Ian Paul, theologian, author, and blogger at Psephizo.com In Living Out My Story , Sean tells us his own story of same-sex attraction which he uses to illuminate his discussion of homosexuality, same-sex marriage and the church. He shows how churches can provide a loving welcome and acceptance of gay people whilst being faithful to Jesus's teaching about sex.

Each guide (also available separately in print or as an e-book) has a 'Go Deeper' section listing resources for further reference. Sean Doherty's new introduction to sexual ethics is firmly grounded in solid biblical scholarship and shows clearly and concisely not only what the Bible teaches about sexuality, marriage, singleness and divorce, but why this teaching makes sense in terms of the nature of God and his desire that men and women should flourish and find fulfilment. It is also firmly connected to the realities of the contemporary world and full of practical wisdom. This is an important and timely book that deserves to be widely read. Buy it and give it away to your friends! - Dr Martin Davie, Tutor in Doctrine, Wycliffe Hall, Oxford; author of A Guide to the Church of England.

Religion and the Meaning of Life - An Existential Approach (Hardcover): Clifford Williams Religion and the Meaning of Life - An Existential Approach (Hardcover)
Clifford Williams
R1,730 Discovery Miles 17 300 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

As humans, we want to live meaningfully, yet we are often driven by impulse. In Religion and the Meaning of Life, Williams investigates this paradox - one with profound implications. Delving into felt realities pertinent to meaning, such as boredom, trauma, suicide, denial of death, and indifference, Williams describes ways to acquire meaning and potential obstacles to its acquisition. This book is unique in its willingness to transcend a more secular stance and explore how one's belief in God may be relevant to life's meaning. Religion and the Meaning of Life's interdisciplinary approach makes it useful to philosophers, religious studies scholars, psychologists, students, and general readers alike. The insights from this book have profound real-world applications - they can transform how readers search for meaning and, consequently, how readers see and exist in the world.

R496 R420 Discovery Miles 4 200 Save R76 (15%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The complete guide to spirit-filled speech and speaking with spirit

This book is a spiritual guide to using the holy gift of speech. It is a ... how-to ... grounded in a humble way of being, expressing an attitude of gratitude toward the tongue, in the knowledge that speech is a gift from God and we have a choice to use our mouths virtuously, in the most humble and searching sense of that word. from the Introduction

So much of our time is spent in conversation, yet little time is devoted to thinking about the words we choose to use, or the manner in which we speak. Taking the time to make our words count to make our speech sacred can lead to positive changes in our lives, and improve our relationships with others.

"Sacred Speech" is a personal, warm-hearted approach to a complex matter how we can use speech in holy ways. Drawing support from literary and spiritual sources, Rev. Donna Schaper offers compelling advice from her own experience as a clergyperson, teacher, partner, and parent, empowering us to: Acknowledge the Divine in the words we use Use speech to maximize the possibility of love and care Use speech to minimize fear Link, connect, and contact with others through words

A clear invitation to improve our communications with others, "Sacred Speech" is ideal for spiritual and religious leaders, professionals who work in multifaith settings, the politically correct and the not-so politically correct, and anyone who wants to do more than simply "watch what they say."

Contesting Inter-Religious Conversion in the Medieval World (Paperback): Yosi Yisraeli, Yaniv Fox Contesting Inter-Religious Conversion in the Medieval World (Paperback)
Yosi Yisraeli, Yaniv Fox
R983 Discovery Miles 9 830 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The Mediterranean and its hinterlands were the scene of intensive and transformative contact between cultures in the Middle Ages. From the seventh to the seventeenth century, the three civilizations into which the region came to be divided geographically - the Islamic Khalifate, the Byzantine Empire, and the Latin West - were busily redefining themselves vis-a-vis one another. Interspersed throughout the region were communities of minorities, such as Christians in Muslim lands, Muslims in Christian lands, heterodoxical sects, pagans, and, of course, Jews. One of the most potent vectors of interaction and influence between these communities in the medieval world was inter-religious conversion: the process whereby groups or individuals formally embraced a new religion. The chapters of this book explore this dynamic: what did it mean to convert to Christianity in seventh-century Ireland? What did it mean to embrace Islam in tenth-century Egypt? Are the two phenomena comparable on a social, cultural, and legal level? The chapters of the book also ask what we are able to learn from our sources, which, at times, provide a very culturally-charged and specific conversion rhetoric. Taken as a whole, the compositions in this volume set out to argue that inter-religious conversion was a process that was recognizable and comparable throughout its geographical and chronological purview.

Claiming the Call to Preach - Four Female Pioneers of Preaching in Nineteenth-Century America (Hardcover): Donna Giver-Johnston Claiming the Call to Preach - Four Female Pioneers of Preaching in Nineteenth-Century America (Hardcover)
Donna Giver-Johnston
R1,587 Discovery Miles 15 870 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Few debates divide the contemporary church more than the issue of call. The question of who can be called to preach segregates denominations, divides people within churches, and undermines its public witness. Yet, curiously little homiletic attention has been paid to the issue of call. Because the practice of call has not been subjected to critical inquiry, it has taken on power. Power lies hidden in the crevices of the question of who can be called to preach; power lies in the institutional narrative and approved stories of call; power lies in the discordant debates, equally in the stifling silence. Claiming the Call to Preach critically examines the dominant historical narrative that overtly or covertly has exercised its power to keep women from preaching. Donna Giver-Johnston here recovers the histories of four notable female preaching pioneers who affected change in the religious landscape of nineteenth-century America: Jarena Lee, Frances Willard, Louisa Woosley, and Florence Spearing Randolph. These women, diverse in religion, race, class, and culture each told their story of call in distinctive ways that articulated strong and effective rhetorical arguments for ecclesiastical sanction to give them a place in the pulpit. Recovering their rhetorical witness helps to fill in the gaps in the history of preaching in America, contribute to research and pedagogies in the field of homiletics, and provide today's women-and all candidates for ministry-with different theological models and narrative strategies by which to effectively interpret and claim their calls to preach. These women who spoke truth to power help us reimagine a church today that no longer questions the legitimacy of one's call to preach, but endorses previously silenced voices, and is therefore strengthened by women's voices from the pulpit.

Which activities give you energy and connect you with God? Do you know what behaviors are life-draining for you, separating you from God? Simplicity is about choosing the engaging, relational life we were meant to live. It means shedding obligation and pretension. It means spending time energy money in ways that help us become clear-headed. It means being intentional about what we do and how we live. These choices allow God's power to move through us and bless others as we have space to do good. In each chapter Jan Johnson provides small experiments with simplicity as well as questions for discussion or reflection to get you started. Come and discover the unhurried rhythms of grace.

Experience, Identity & Epistemic Injustice within Ireland's Magdalene Laundries (Hardcover): Chloe K. Gott Experience, Identity & Epistemic Injustice within Ireland's Magdalene Laundries (Hardcover)
Chloe K. Gott
R2,415 Discovery Miles 24 150 Ships in 10 - 20 working days

How are the identities of women shaped by religious disciplinary processes in Magdalene laundries and how do women re-engage with their sense of self after leaving the institutions? Chloe K. Gott situates these questions within the current cultural climate in which the institutions now sit, considering how they fit into Ireland's present as well as its past. This book represents the first significant secondary analysis to be conducted of 81 oral history interviews recorded as part of the Government of Ireland Collaborative Research project, 'Magdalene Institutions: Recording an Archival and Oral History', funded by the Irish Research Council. These were taken with women formerly incarcerated in these institutions, as well as others associated with this history. Grounded in qualitative analysis of this archive, the book is structured around the voices and words of survivors themselves. With a strong focus on how the experience of being incarcerated in a Magdalene laundry impacted on the gendered religious selves of the women, this book tracks the process of entering, working in and leaving a laundry, explored through the lens of epistemic injustice.

We can either move forward, building together at last a new world of peace and harmony based on new beliefs about God and Life, or move backward, separately and continuously reconstructing the old world of conflict and discord.
In "The New Revelations, " bestselling author Walsch offers possible and powerful answers to the questions facing the world, and urges us to open our hearts and minds to what may be one of the most important spiritual statements of our time.
