Supernatural Courage - Activating Spiritual Bravery to Win Today's Battle (Paperback): Mickey Robinson Supernatural Courage - Activating Spiritual Bravery to Win Today's Battle (Paperback)
Mickey Robinson; Foreword by Eric Metaxas
R335 Discovery Miles 3 350 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Our world is full of fear: fear of death, public speaking, flying, drowning, failure, rejection, snakes, needles, heights, darkness, enclosed places, and countless more. Satan uses fear to steal joy, kill opportunity, and destroy hope. God has an antidote: supernatural courage. Our favorite Bible heroes achieved results greater than their natural abilities because of bravery that came only from God. Followers of Jesus throughout history have had the Holy Spirit come upon them to achieve supernatural outcomes. In Supernatural Courage, Robinson uses biblical examples, interviews, and testimonies, along with Bible promises, prayers, and activations to impart spiritual bravery for strength to live a life beyond what's normal. These pages will help activate supernatural courage in your life so that you can hope--and then persevere through overwhelming challenges, stand against intimidation, believe for the impossible, forgive amid injustice, use spiritual gifts for spiritual victories, and finish the race God has given you.

On Secularization - Towards a Revised General Theory (Paperback, New Ed): David Martin On Secularization - Towards a Revised General Theory (Paperback, New Ed)
David Martin
R940 Discovery Miles 9 400 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

'Secularization' has been hotly debated since it was first subjected to critical attention in the mid-sixties by David Martin, before he sketched a 'General Theory' in 1969. 'On Secularization' presents David Martin's reassessment of the key issues: with particular regard to the special situation of religion in Western Europe, and questions in the global context including Pentecostalism in Latin America and Africa. Concluding with examinations of Pluralism, Christian Language, and Christianity and Politics, this book offers students and other readers of social theory and sociology of religion an invaluable reappraisal of Christianity and Secularization. It represents the most comprehensive sociology of contemporary Christianity, set in historical depth.

The Evangelical Church in Boston's Chinatown - A Discourse of Language, Gender, and Identity (Hardcover, New): Erika A Muse The Evangelical Church in Boston's Chinatown - A Discourse of Language, Gender, and Identity (Hardcover, New)
Erika A Muse
R2,965 Discovery Miles 29 650 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The purpose of this book is to provide valuable anthropological data on the identity construction of a rapidly growing Chinese Christian population in the United States. As more and more Chinese of different generations and varying cultural backgrounds practice evangelical Christianity, the meaning of Chinese American will change accordingly. The book provides significant linguistic data for a nascent but important area of anthropological research. The scope of the book encompasses Asian American homiletics, discourse analysis and prosody, types of sermons and roles of men and women in a diverse, multilingual church. Parallels between Confucianism and Christianity and the role of "gradual evangelism" in identity construction are discussed. These elements are contextualized within current sociocultural and economic spheres and address the implications of the "model minority" and Asian patriarchy. The book provides original linguistic data of sermons in Mandarin, Cantonese and English. The book posits that the Chinese of the Boston church have developed an ethno-Christian identity and this identity demonstrated through ethnically marked prosodic cues, unites the congregation in the ethnic church. This position challenges some current approaches to identity construction and the role of religion in immigrant communities.

Theological Radicalism and Tradition - 'The Limits of Radicalism' with Appendices (Hardcover): Howard E. Root Theological Radicalism and Tradition - 'The Limits of Radicalism' with Appendices (Hardcover)
Howard E. Root; Edited by Christopher R. Brewer
R2,849 Discovery Miles 28 490 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

'The limits of radicalism are those which end not in chaos but in the breaking of fresh ground.' Howard E. Root Previously unpublished--and only recently rediscovered by Dr Christopher R. Brewer in an uncatalogued box in the archives of Lambeth Palace Library--Canon Howard E. Root's 1972 Bampton Lectures, 'The Limits of Radicalism', have to do with nothing less than 'what theology is', a topic no less relevant today than it was in 1972. Against the radical reductionism of his time, Root defended the integrity of theology and 'theological truth'. Advocating a 'backward-looking' radicalism, he thought that tradition should display 'recognisable continuity', and yet at the same time--against reductionistic tendencies--that it might be enriched and enlarged via a wide variety of 'additive imagery' including, though not limited to, poetry and pop art, music and even television. We must 'begin where we are', said Root, for we cannot, in the manner of Leonard Hodgson, 'think ourselves into the minds and feelings of men 2000 years ago.' In this volume, which begins with a substantial, mostly biographical introduction, Dr Brewer argues that Root--a backward-looking radical who defended metaphysics and natural theology, and insisted that theologians look to the arts as theological resources--anticipates the work of David Brown and others concerned with tradition and imagination, relevance and truth. A fascinating glimpse into the recent history of British Christianity, Root's lectures, as well as the related appendices, are essential reading for theologians interested in the dynamics of a developing tradition and the theme of openness, as well as those with a particular interest in 1960s Cambridge radicalism and the British reception of the Second Vatican Council.

Popular Evangelicalism in American Culture explores the controversies, complexities, and historical development of the evangelical movement in America and its impact on American culture. Evangelicalism is one of the most dynamic and growing religious movements in America and has been both a major force in shaping American society and likewise a group which has resisted aspects of the modern world. Organised thematically this book demonstrates the impact of American culture on popular evangelicalism by exploring the following topics: politics; economics; salvation; millennialism; the megachurch and electronic churches; and popular culture. This accessible and thought-provoking volume will interest anyone concerned with the modern-day success of the Evangelical movement in America.

Mormon Country (Paperback, 2nd edition): Wallace Stegner Mormon Country (Paperback, 2nd edition)
Wallace Stegner; Introduction by Richard W Etulain
R540 R456 Discovery Miles 4 560 Save R84 (16%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Where others saw only sage, a salt lake, and a great desert, the Mormons saw their "lovely Deseret," a land of lilacs, honeycombs, poplars, and fruit trees. Unwelcome in Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois, they migrated to the dry lands between the Rockies and the Sierra Nevada to establish Mormon country, a wasteland made green. Like the land the Mormons settled, their habits stood in stark contrast to the frenzied recklessness of the American West. Opposed to the often prodigal individualism of the West, Mormons lived in closely knit - some say ironclad - communities. The story of Mormon country is one of self-sacrifice and labor spent in the search for an ideal in the most forbidding territory of the American West. Richard W. Etulain provides a new introduction to this edition.

Popular Music in Evangelical Youth Culture (Paperback): Stella Lau Popular Music in Evangelical Youth Culture (Paperback)
Stella Lau
R988 Discovery Miles 9 880 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Christian churches and groups within Anglo-American contexts have increasingly used popular music as a way to connect with young people. This book investigates the relationships between evangelical Christianity and popular music, focusing particularly on electronic dance music in the last twenty years. Author Stella Lau illustrates how electronic dance music is legitimized in evangelical activities by Christians' discourses, and how the discourses challenge the divide between the 'secular' and the 'sacred' in the Western culture. Unlike other existing books on the relationships between music cultures and religion, which predominantly discuss the cultural implications of such phenomenon, Popular Music in Evangelical Youth Culture examines the notion of 'spirituality' in contemporary popular electronic dance music. Lau's emphasis on the sonic qualities of electronic dance music opens the door for future research about the relationships between aural properties of electronic dance music and religious discourses. With three case studies conducted in the cultural hubs of electronic dance music - Bristol, Ibiza and New York - the monograph can also be used as a guidebook for ethnographic research in popular music.

Keeping Them Out of the Hands of Satan - Evangelical Schooling in America (Hardcover): Susan D. Rose Keeping Them Out of the Hands of Satan - Evangelical Schooling in America (Hardcover)
Susan D. Rose
R2,389 Discovery Miles 23 890 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

First published in 1988, this work was the product of extensive fieldwork in two evangelical communities. This in-depth ethnographic study focuses on the meaning systems, organizational structures and the daily lives of the people Susan D. Rose encountered. The study is centred around Christian schooling as a method of socialisation. Tracing the rise of evangelicalism and the development of the Christian School Movement in the latter half of the twentieth century, it examines the kinds of educational alternatives evangelicals have structured for their children. Moving beyond the issue of schooling itself, it analyses the interactions among schooling, ideology, economic structures and the nature of work in contemporary American society, and explores how people relate to one another within the church-family-school network. It addresses the provocative question of why evangelicalism, a self-proclaimed conservative, reactionary movement, held so much appeal for so many Americans at the time of publication. This work will be of particular interest to those studying education and religion and education in the U. S. A.

Redeeming the Dial - Radio, Religion, and Popular Culture in America (Paperback, New edition): Tona J Hangen Redeeming the Dial - Radio, Religion, and Popular Culture in America (Paperback, New edition)
Tona J Hangen
R925 Discovery Miles 9 250 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Blending cultural, religious and media history, Tona Hangen offers a detailed look into the world of religious radio. She uses recordings, sermons, fan mail and other sources to tell the stories of the determined broadcasters and devoted listeners who, together, transformed American radio evangelism from an on-air novelty in the 1920s into a profitable and wide-reaching industry by the 1950s. Hangen traces the careers of three of the most successful Protestant radio evangelists - Paul Rader of Chicago, Aimee Semple McPherson of Los Angeles and Charles Fuller of Pasadena - and examines the strategies they used to bring their messages to listerners across the nation. Initially shut out of network radio and free airtime, both of which were available only to mainstream Protestant and Catholic groups, evangelical broadcasters gained access to the airwaves with paid-time programming. By the mid-20th century millions of Americans regularly tuned in to evangelical programming, making it one of the medium's most distinctive and durable genres. The voluntary contributions of these listeners in turn helped to bankroll religious radio's remarkable growth. Revealing the entwined development of evangelical religion and modern mass media, Hangen demonstrates that the history of one is incomplete without the history of the other; both are important to understanding American culture in the 20th century.

Hans Mol and the Sociology of Religion (Hardcover): Adam J. Powell Hans Mol and the Sociology of Religion (Hardcover)
Adam J. Powell
R3,074 Discovery Miles 30 740 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Hans Mol was born in the Netherlands during the 1920s. His imprisonment by the Gestapo during World War II began a long intellectual journey, exploring the role of religion in society. His work on the sociology of religion throughout the 20th and 21st Century is distinctive in its quest for both methodological and existential balance Part One of this book includes a brief outline of Mol's most influential theory as originally explicated in Identity and the Sacred (1976). This is followed by a look at the initial reception of that theory in relation to the competing concepts of Mol's contemporaries. Part Two is comprised of four previously-unpublished essays written by Mol during the 70s and 80s. Covering topics from evolution to evangelicalism, the papers display the sweeping ambition of this sociologist as well as the tone and contours of his intellectual articulation. In the Postscript this volume concludes with select transcripts of interviews conducted between Adam Powell and Hans Mol during the Spring of 2012. This volume of Mol's work will be of keen interest to academics and students with an interest in the sociology of religion post-World War II and the development of contemporary Christian theology.

Raised from the Dead - The Miracle That Brings Promise to America (Paperback): Reinhard Bonnke Raised from the Dead - The Miracle That Brings Promise to America (Paperback)
Reinhard Bonnke
R314 Discovery Miles 3 140 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In 1972, Reinhard Bonnke heard a message from God:

"Africa shall be saved." Obediently, Bonnke moved to

Africa, where his ministry grew from humble roots to

crusades drawing more than one million people per night.

His ministry spawned incredible healing miracles of God,

saw the conversion of Muslims at a rate that warranted a

letter of warning from Osama bin Laden, and registered

more than 74 million decisions for Christ. In 2001,

Bonnke debated whether or not to move his ministry to

America.

Before he could think of leaving decades of missionary

work in Africa, Bonnke did something he had never done

before: he prayed for a sign that would confirm such a

move. God was about to answer that prayer.

A few days later, a woman brought the body of her

deceased husband to the Nigerian church where Bonnke

was preaching, in hopes that he would be raised from

the dead. Bonnke was unaware of this, and he never even

prayed for this man; but as he concluded his message,

he heard a chorus of shouts: "He's breathing He's

breathing " In front of thousands of witnesses, a man

dead three days had been raised back to life.

Now detailed for the first time, this incredible miracle is

part of a movement of God that was birthed in a small

African church and is now stretching around the world to

America. It is the beginning of a work of God, confirming

a new word: "America shall be saved."

Christian Peoples of the Spirit - A Documentary History of Pentecostal Spirituality from the Early Church to the Present... Christian Peoples of the Spirit - A Documentary History of Pentecostal Spirituality from the Early Church to the Present (Paperback)
Stanley M. Burgess
R534 Discovery Miles 5 340 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Among all groups in Christendom, the Pentecostal/Charismatic movement is second in size only to the Roman Catholic Church, with growth that shows no signs of abatement. Its adherents declare the Pentecostal Movement, which began at Azusa Street in 1906, to be unprecedented in Christian history since the first century of the Church in its embrace of manifestations of the Holy Spirit such as divine healing, miracles, and speaking in tongues. Yet although it may be unprecedented in size and rate of growth, Stanley M. Burgess argues that is hardly unprecedented in concept. In "Christian Peoples of the Spirit," Burgess collects documentary evidence for two thousand years of individuals and groups who have evidenced Pentecostal/charismatic-like spiritual giftings, worship, and experience.

The documents in this collection, bolstered by concise editorial introductions, offer the original writings of a wide variety of "peoples of the spirit," from Tertullian and Antony of the Desert to the Shakers and Sunder Singh, as well as of their enemies or detractors. Though virtually all of the parties in this volume considered themselves Spirit-gifted, or given special qualities by God, they are in many ways as different from one another as the cultures from which they have emerged. In providing such an impressive array of voices, Burgess convincingly demonstrates that there have indeed been Spirit-filled worship and charismatic saints in all periods of church history.
