ISBN: 0195002229

Condition: USED


This book presents Paul Tillich at his very best--brief, clear, stimulating, provocative. Speaking with understanding and force, he makes a basic analysis of love, power, and justice, all concepts fundamental in the mutual relations of people, of social groups, and of humankind to God. His concern is to penetrate to the essential, or ontological foundation of the meaning of each of these words and thus save them from the vague talk, idealism, cynicism, and sentimentality with which they are usually treated. The basic unity of love, power, and justice is affirmed and described in terms that are... View more info

The history of Christianity in America has been marked by recurring periods of religious revivals or awakenings. In this book, George M.

Picking up on Edward Said's claim that the historical experience of empire is common to both the colonizer and the colonized, Peter van der Veer takes the case of religion to examine the mutual impact of Britain's colonization of India on Indian and British culture.

In the process, van der Veer chronicles how these notions developed in the second half of the nineteenth cen... View more info

In "The Shape of Faith to Come," research expert Brad J. Waggoner and his team measure the beliefs and actions of 2,500 active Protestant churchgoers from across the country against seven key standards of Biblical spiritual formation: Learning the truth O...

Writing with African American women in mind, Renita Weems probes beneath the surface to find out how the women of Scripture felt about themselves-by looking at how they treated other women. Believing that a common thread of sacred female experiences continues to bind centuries of women, Weems offers the hope that "we are just a sister away from our healing." In nine chapters, Weems examines the relationships of Hagar and Sarah, Naomi and Ruth, Martha and Mary, Jephthah's Daughter and the mourning women, Miriam and her sister-in-law, the women who followed Jesus, Vashti and Esther, Elizabet...
