Christianity and the Alt-Right - Exploring the Relationship (Paperback): Damon T. Berry Christianity and the Alt-Right - Exploring the Relationship (Paperback)
Damon T. Berry
R928 Discovery Miles 9 280 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Christianity and the Alt-Right: Exploring the Relationship looks back at the 2016 presidential election and the support President Trump enjoyed among white Evangelicals. This cutting-edge volume offers insights into the role of race and racism in shaping both the Trump candidacy and presidency and the ways in which xenophobia, racism, and religion intersect within the Alt-Right and Evangelical cultures in the age of Trump. This book aims to examine the specific role that Christianity plays within the Alt-Right itself. Of special concern is the development of what is called "pro-white Christianity" and an ethic of religious tolerance between members of the Alt-Right who are Pagan or atheist and those who are Christian, whilst also exploring the reaction from Christian communities to the phenomenon of the Alt-Right. Looking at the larger relationship between American Christians, especially white Evangelicals, and the Alt-Right as well as the current American political context, the place of Christianity within the Alt-Right itself, and responses from Christian communities to the Alt-Right, this is a must-read for those interested in religion in America, religion and politics, evangelicalism, and religion and race.

The Evangelical Party and Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Return to the Church of England (Paperback): Christopher W Corbin The Evangelical Party and Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Return to the Church of England (Paperback)
Christopher W Corbin
R978 Discovery Miles 9 780 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

It has long been accepted that when Samuel Taylor Coleridge rejected the Unitarianism of his youth and returned to the Church of England, he did so while accepting a general Christian orthodoxy. Christopher Corbin clarifies Coleridge's religious identity and argues that while Coleridge's Christian orthodoxy may have been sui generis, it was closely aligned with moderate Anglican Evangelicalism. Approaching religious identity as a kind of culture that includes distinct forms of language and networks of affiliation in addition to beliefs and practices, this book looks for the distinguishable movements present in Coleridge's Britain to more precisely locate his religious identity than can be done by appeals to traditional denominational divisions. Coleridge's search for unity led him to desire and synthesize the "warmth" of heart religion (symbolized as Methodism) with the "light" of rationalism (symbolized as Socinianism), and the evangelicalism in the Church of England, being the most chastened of the movement, offered a fitting place from which this union of warmth and light could emerge. His religious identity not only included many of the defining Anglican Evangelical beliefs, such as an emphasis on original sin and the New Birth, but he also shared common polemical opponents, appropriated evangelical literary genres, developed a spirituality centered on the common evangelical emphases of prayer and introspection, and joined Evangelicals in rejecting baptismal regeneration. When placed in a chronological context, Coleridge's form of Christian orthodoxy developed in conversation with Anglican Evangelicals; moreover, this relationship with Anglican Evangelicalism likely helped facilitate his return to the Church of England. Corbin not only demonstrates the similarities between Coleridge's relationship to a form of evangelicalism with which most people have little familiarity, but also offers greater insight into the complexities and tensions of religious identity in late eighteenth and early nineteenth century Britain as a whole.

Wesley, Whitefield and the 'Free Grace' Controversy - The Crucible of Methodism (Paperback): Joel Houston Wesley, Whitefield and the 'Free Grace' Controversy - The Crucible of Methodism (Paperback)
Joel Houston
R977 Discovery Miles 9 770 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

When approaching the most public disagreement over predestination in the eighteenth century, the 'Free Grace' controversy between John Wesley and George Whitefield, the tendency can be to simply review the event as a row over the same old issues. This assumption pervades much of the scholarly literature that deals with early Methodism. Moreover, much of that same literature addresses the dispute from John Wesley's vantage point, often harbouring a bias towards his Evangelical Arminianism. Yet the question must be asked: was there more to the 'Free Grace' controversy than a simple rehashing of old arguments? This book answers this complex question by setting out the definitive account of the 'Free Grace' controversy in first decade of the Evangelical Revival (1739-49). Centred around the key players in the fracas, John Wesley and George Whitefield, it is a close analysis of the way in which the doctrine of predestination was instrumental in differentiating the early Methodist societies from one another. It recounts the controversy through the lens of doctrinal analysis and from two distinct perspectives: the propositional content of a given doctrine and how that doctrine exerts formative pressure upon the assenting individual(s). What emerges from this study is a clearer picture of the formative years of early Methodism and the vital role that doctrinal pronouncement played in giving a shape to early Methodist identity. It will, therefore, be of great interest to scholars of Methodism, Evangelicalism, Theology and Church History.

R1,310 Discovery Miles 13 100 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The Utah War of 1857-58, the unprecedented armed confrontation between Mormon Utah Territory and the U.S. government, was the most extensive American military action between the Mexican and Civil wars. At Sword's Point presents in two volumes the first in-depth narrative and documentary history of that extraordinary conflict. William P. MacKinnon offers a lively narrative linking firsthand accounts--most previously unknown--from soldiers and civilians on both sides. This first volume traces the war's causes and preliminary events, including President Buchanan's decision to replace Brigham Young as governor of Utah and restore federal authority through a large army expedition. Also examined are Young's defensive-aggressive reactions, the onset of armed hostilities, and Thomas L. Kane's departure at the end of 1857 for his now-famous mediating mission to Utah. MacKinnon provides a balanced, comprehensive account, based on a half century of research and a wealth of carefully selected new material. Women's voices from both sides enrich this colorful story. At Sword's Point presents the Utah War as a sprawling confrontation with regional and international as well as territorial impact. As a nonpartisan definitive work, it eclipses previous studies of this remarkably bloody turning point in western, military, and Mormon history.

Women today are expected to multitask--to serve, lead, influence, manage their busy schedules, nurture their families, and at the same time harness their emotions. Meanwhile, Satan, the longtime enemy of women, tells them they are not good enough, not successful enough, and certainly not capable of making a difference. An author who knows how to access the power and gifts of the Holy Spirit in everyday life, Staci Wallace helps women resist the forces of darkness and rise up empowered to take on and win whatever battle they face. In Fueled by Fire, she takes readers on a journey through the lives of women in the Bible as well as through her own story of conquering deadly diseases, climbing corporate ladders, and raising world-changers. She inspires women to believe that, with God, anything is possible.

Italian American Pentecostalism and the Struggle for Religious Identity (Paperback): Paul J. Palma Italian American Pentecostalism and the Struggle for Religious Identity (Paperback)
Paul J. Palma
R983 Discovery Miles 9 830 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

While many established forms of Christianity have seen significant decline in recent decades, Pentecostals are currently one of the fastest growing religious groups across the world. This book examines the roots, inception, and expansion of Pentecostalism among Italian Americans to demonstrate how Pentecostalism moves so freely through widely varying cultures. The book begins with a survey of the origins and early shaping forces of Italian American Pentecostalism. It charts its birth among immigrants in Chicago as well as the initial expansion fuelled by the convergence of folk-Catholic, Reformed evangelical, and Holiness sources. The book goes on to explain how internal and external pressures demanded structure, leading to the founding of the Christian Church of North America in 1927. Paralleling this development was the emergence of the Italian District of the Assemblies of God, the Assemblee di Dio in Italia (Assemblies of God in Italy), the Canadian Assemblies of God, and formidable denominations in Brazil and Argentina. In the closing chapters, based on analysis of key theological loci and in lieu of contemporary developments, the future prospects of the movement are laid out and assessed. This book provides a purview into the religious lives of an underexamined, but culturally significant group in America. As such, it will be of great interest to scholars of Pentecostalism, Religious Studies and Religious History, as well as Migrations Studies and Cultural Studies in America

Religion and Relationships in Ragged Schools - An Intimate History of Educating the Poor, 1844-1870 (Paperback): Laura M. Mair Religion and Relationships in Ragged Schools - An Intimate History of Educating the Poor, 1844-1870 (Paperback)
Laura M. Mair
R981 Discovery Miles 9 810 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Focusing on the interaction between teachers and scholars, this book provides an intimate account of "ragged schools" that challenges existing scholarship on evangelical child-saving movements and Victorian philanthropy. With Lord Shaftesbury as their figurehead, these institutions provided a free education to impoverished children. The primary purpose of the schools, however, was the salvation of children's souls. Using promotional literature and local school documents, this book contrasts the public portrayal of children and teachers with that found in practice. It draws upon evidence from schools in Scotland and England, giving insight into the achievements and challenges of individual institutions. An intimate account is constructed using the journals maintained by Martin Ware, the superintendent of a North London school, alongside a cache of letters that children sent him. This combination of personal and national perspectives adds nuance to the narratives often imposed upon historic philanthropic movements. Investigating how children responded to the evangelistic messages and educational opportunities ragged schools offered, this book will be of keen interest to historians of education, emigration, religion, as well as of the nineteenth century more broadly.

R1,301 Discovery Miles 13 010 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The Assemblies of God (AG) is the ninth largest American and the world's largest Pentecostal denomination, with over 50 million followers worldwide. The AG embraces a worldview of miracles and mystery that makes"supernatural" experiences, such as speaking in tongues, healing, and prophecy, normal for Christian believers. Ever since it first organized in 1916, however, the "charismata" or "gifts of the Holy Spirit" have felt tension from institutional forces. Over the decades, vital charismatic experiences have been increasingly tamed by rituals, doctrine, and denominational structure. Yet the path towards institutionalization has not been clear-cut. New revivals and direct personal experience of God-the hallmarks of Pentecostalism-continue as an important part of the AG tradition, particularly in the growing number of ethnic congregations in the United States. The Assemblies of God draws on fresh, up-to-date research including quantitative surveys and interviews from twenty-two diverse Assemblies of God congregations to offer a new sociological portrait of the AG for the new millennium. The authors suggest that there is indeed a potential revitalization of the movement in the works within the context of the larger global Pentecostal upswing, and that this revitalization may be spurred by what the authors call "godly love:" the dynamic interaction between divine and human love that enlivens and expands benevolence. The volume provides a wealth of data about how the second-largest American Pentecostal denomination sees itself today, and suggests trends to illuminate where it is headed in the future.

Remaking the Godly Marriage - Gender Negotiation in Evangelical Families (Paperback): John Bartkowski Remaking the Godly Marriage - Gender Negotiation in Evangelical Families (Paperback)
John Bartkowski
R902 Discovery Miles 9 020 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

"Remaking the Godly Marriage provides a careful and insightful portrait of gender in contemporary conservative evangelicalism that would serve as an accessible text for seminars on gender and religion or contemporary evangelicalism. Most significantly, Bartkowski's focus on how identity and responsibilities are carefully negotiated between men and women takes seriously the sociological claim that gender is relational and thereby fills a gap in the literature on gender in conservative evangelical families."-Journal of Religion "This book is beautifully written and highly engaging. Bartkowski uses finely chosen family- and organizational-level examples to illustrate theoretical points."-Gender & Society "Bartkowski draws from a treasure trove of stories to make evangelicals understandable and alive. Like everyone else, they struggle to create workable ways of being men, women, and families in a changing world."-Nancy Tatom Ammerman, author of Bible Believers: Fundamentalists in the Modern World "Bartkowski very nicely mixes methods--combining an analysis of evangelical advice manuals, an ethnography of an evangelical congregation, and in-depth interviews with married evangelical couples--to produce an important contribution to our growing understanding of the complexity, ambivalence, and diversity within American evangelicalism."-Christian Smith, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill "Using a deft combination of historical material, textual analysis, interviews and ethnographic observation, Bartkowski unpacks the multiple discourses about, and practices within, marriage and families among evangelical Protestants."-Rhys H. Williams, editor of Promise Keepers and the New Masculinity: Private Lives and Public Morality John P. Bartkowski investigates the debates over gender and the family as they are manifested within contemporary evangelicalism. The author asks: Have debates over relations between husband and wife been altered by the emergence of new evangelical movements such as the Promise Keepers? And given the fact that leading evangelicals advance competing visions of godly family life, how do conservative religious spouses make sense of their own family relationships and gender identities? Through in-depth interviews with evangelical married couples, Bartkowski reveals how these men and women jointly negotiate gender roles within their families and selectively appropriate values of the larger culture even as they attempt to cope with the conflicting messages of their own faith. John P. Bartkowski is an assistant professor in the department of sociology, anthropology, and social work at Mississippi State University.

R909 Discovery Miles 9 090 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

America's religious landscape is in flux. New churches are springing up and many older churches are redefining themselves to survive. At the forefront of this denominational free-for-all are evangelical ""seeker" churches.These churches target ""seekers"-individuals of any faith or denominational background who seek spiritual fulfillment but are not currently affiliated with any specific church. By focusing on this largely untapped group, seeker churches have become one of the fastest-growing religious movements in the country. In his study, Kimon Sargeant provides a sociological context for the rise of these churches by exploring the rituals, messages, strategies, and denominational functions of this emerging form of American evangelical Protestantism. Featuring live bands, professional lighting and sound systems, and multi-media presentations, seeker churches are attracting many people who have ""dropped out" of organized religion. To broaden their appeal, they offer attenders advice on everyday issues ranging from relationships to finance. Sargeant focuses on the success of the Willow Creek Association, the seeker church association started by the Willow Creek Community Church near Chicago. With over 5,000 member churches, the seven-year old association has already outdistanced 90 percent of American denominations and is the leader of the seeker church movement. Through eyewitness accounts and careful research, Sargeant reveals the ""seeker" movement to be a ""reformation" of American Protestantism.
