Mayada: Daughter Of Iraq
Mayada was born into a powerful Iraqi family. One grandfather fought alongside Lawrence of Arabia. The other is acclaimed as the first true Arab nationalist. Her uncle was Prime Minister for nearly forty years, her mother an important politician. When Saddam Hussein and his Ba'ath party seized power, and instituted his reign of terror, Mayada found herself alone in Baghdad, a divorced parent of two children, earning a meagre living printing brochures. Until one morning in August 1999 she was summarily arrested and dragged to the notorious Baladiyat Prison, falsely accused of printing anti-government propaganda. There she was thrown into a cell with 17 'shadow women'. Like latter-day Sherezades, these women passed their days, while waiting for the next interrogation and torture session, telling each other their stories. They were eager to hear Mayada's stories of her privileged former life, of the history of her proud family, of kings and queens, of meetings with Saddam himself. Not only the story of a woman intimately connected to Iraq's cultured, ancient history, this book is a powerful witness to the terror and horror wrought by Saddam on the lives and souls of its ordinary citizens.

Saladin: The Life, the Legend and the Islamic Empire
Saladin remains one of the most iconic figures of his age. As the man who united the Arabs and saved Islam from Christian crusaders in the 12th century, he is the Islamic world's preeminent hero. Ruthless in defence of his faith, brilliant in leadership, he also possessed qualities that won admiration from his Christian foes. He knew the limits of violence, showing such tolerance and generosity that many Europeans, appalled at the brutality of their own people, saw him as the exemplar of their own knightly ideals. But Saladin is far more than a historical hero. Builder, literary patron and theologian, he is a man for all times, and a symbol of hope for an Arab world once again divided. Centuries after his death, in cities from Damascus to Cairo and beyond, to the Arabian Peninsula and the Gulf, Saladin continues to be an immensely potent symbol of religious and military resistance to the West. He is central to Arab memories, sensibilities and the ideal of a unified Islamic state. In this authoritative biography, historian John Man brings Saladin and his world to life in vivid detail. Charting his rise to power, his struggle to unify the warring factions of his faith, and his battles to retake Jerusalem and expel Christian influence from Arab lands, Saladin explores the life and the enduring legacy of this champion of Islam, and examines his significance for the world today.

For the Love of a Son: One Afghan Woman's Quest for her Stolen Child
From the time she was a little girl, Maryam rebelled against the terrible second-class existence that was her destiny as an Afghan woman. She had witnessed the miserable fate of her grandmother and three aunts, and wished she had been born a boy. As a feisty teenager in Kabul, she was outraged when the Russians invaded her country. After she made a public show of defiance, she had to flee the country for her life. A new life of freedom seemed within her grasp,but her father arranged a traditional marriage to a fellow Afghan, who turned out to be a violent man. Beaten, raped and abused, Maryam found joy in the birth of a baby son. But then her brutal husband stole him away far beyond his mother's reach. For many long years she searched for her lost son, while civil war and Taliban oppression raged back home in Afghanistan. Set against a landscape littered with tragic tales of horrific suffering, Jean Sasson, author of Princess, chronicles the story of one resolute but tormented woman determined to achieve freedom and equality with men.

Value and Vulnerability: An Interfaith Dialogue on Human Dignity
This volume brings together scholars of religion to identify and examine conceptions and interpretations of dignity within different religious and philosophical perspectives (including Catholicism, Buddhism, Judaism, Hinduism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Protestantism, Islam, and Humanism) and their applications to contemporary issues of conflict (gendered violence, religious violence, racial violence, immigration, ecology, and religious peacemaking). The book also includes response chapters that clarify and refine these interpretations from interfaith perspectives. The book offers recommendations for advancing the conversation about dignity within and among traditions and for addressing urgent global issues and threats to dignity. It offers a comparative framework constituted by seven questions: What sources justify dignity's existence, nature, and purpose? What is the relationship between the divine and human dignity? What is the relationship between dignity and the human body? Is dignity vulnerable or invulnerable to moral harm? Is dignity inherent or attained? Is dignity universal and equal? Is dignity practical? Through its systematic, comparative, interdisciplinary, and practical dimensions, the book redresses lacunae in contemporary theological, philosophical, and ethical discourses on dignity.Contributors: Matthew R. Petrusek, Jonathan Rothchild, Darlene Fozard Weaver, Kristin Scheible, Karen B. Enriquez , Elliot N. Dorff, Daniel Nevins, Christopher Key Chapple, David P. Gushee, Aristotle Papanikolaou, Zeki Saritoprak, William Schweiker, Hille Haker, Nicholas Denysenko, Terrence L. Johnson, William O'Neill, Victor Carmona, Dawn Nothwehr, OSF, and Ellen Ott Marshall.

Christianity and Belonging in Shimla, North India
This book presents a unique ethnographic account of material religion in the Himalayan city of Shimla. Although the mountains that surround the city are a materialisation of divinity, Miles-Watson describes how the city was largely a planned development, with a clear understanding of the mountains as a suitable host for an environment that would invoke the imagined landscapes of `home' for Europeans. Today the Europeans have largely left, but this book shows how the trace of their action remains and nowhere is this more important than in relation to the sacred. The author shows that key to understanding the city is the contemporary material religion of the Christian communities, who are marginal (by profession) yet metaphorically and literally central to the contemporary life of the city. The book builds upon over a decade of research to present an ethnographic account of devotional practices that speaks to contemporary developments in the blossoming fields of both the anthropology of Christianity and material religion. Through this exploration the book answers the mystery of Shimla's postcolonial harmony, while directly complicating established theories in the anthropology of religion, postcolonial studies, and material culture.

Eye of the Storm: Experiencing God When You Can't See Him
The story behind the Dove Award-winning song by Ryan Stevenson Many recognize the blockbuster song Eye of the Storm, but few know about the arduous journey that took Ryan Stevenson from farm boy to acclaimed singer and songwriter. Here, Stevenson shares about the turmoil of his early life, the rejection and pain faced in his initial attempts to launch his music career, the grief experienced during his mother's long battle with cancer, the stress and burnout of his days working as a paramedic, and how an unexpected lightning storm gave him a front-row seat to a miracle that would turn his life around. When the dark clouds roll in, Stevenson has learned to listen to that still, small voice he hears-the voice of a trustworthy God who holds on to him even during the fiercest storms.

Spousal Violence Among World Christians: Silent Scandal
This book takes a global approach to violence between husbands and wives in faith contexts. It focuses primarily on Christians, and uses anthropological, theological and historical methods which intersect with and are challenged by lay and ordained women and men from eighteen countries. Focusing on marital violence, the book explores how to understand how various churches, their priests, preachers and members, approach the topic, interpret the texts, and, with the almost relentless collusion of theologians, hide from the sin. Drawing on ethnographic research over several decades from around the world, Elizabeth Koepping presents testimonies from abused women, as well as theological justification for spousal abuse from the perpetrators. She argues that violence against the (female) spouse can be understood as proper behaviour by manly men towards unruly wives, rather than an insult to the Image of God in all persons. The book shows that spousal abuse is an ecumenical phenomenon, in the sense that is present all over the inhabited world, and it is present in all Christian churches.

Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation
Donald Trump is a libertine who lacks even basic knowledge of the Christian faith. Yet in 2016 he won 81 percent of the white evangelical vote, and continues to rely on white evangelicals as his base of support. While we assume the religious right has pragmatic reasons for backing Trump, in truth he represents the fulfillment of evangelicals' most deeply held values. As historian Kristin Kobes Du Mez demonstrates, American evangelicals have worked for decades to replace the Jesus of the Gospels with an idol of rugged masculinity and Christian nationalism-or, in the words of one modern chaplain, with a spiritual badass. Trump is hardly the first flashy celebrity to capture evangelicals' hearts and minds, having followed the path blazed by, among others, John Wayne, Oliver North, and Mel Gibson. A revelatory account of a uniquely influential subculture, Jesus and John Wayne incisively reveals why evangelicals have rallied behind patriarchal power and the least- Christian president in American history.

Andrew Palmer's vivid translation of the Syriac Life of Barsauma opens a fascinating window onto the ancient Middle East, seen through the life and actions of one of its most dramatic and ambiguous characters: the monk Barsauma, ascetic hero to some, religious terrorist to others. The Life takes us into the eye of the storm that raged around Christian attempts to define the nature of Christ in the great council of Chalcedon, the effects of which was to split the growing Church irrevocably, with the Oriental Orthodox on one side, Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic on the other. Hitherto known only in extracts, this ancient text is finally brought to readers in its entirety, casting dramatic new light on the relations between pagans, Jews, and Christians in the Holy Land and on the role of religious violence, real or imagined, in the mental world of a Middle East as shot through with conflict as it is, alas, today.

Embracing the Journey: A Christian Parents' Blueprint to Loving Your LGBTQ Child
A sympathetic, compassionate, and inspiring guide for parents--from the founders of one of the first Christian ministries for parents of LGBTQ children. Greg and Lynn McDonald had never interacted with members of the LGBTQ community until they discovered that their son was gay. Without resources or support, they had no idea how to come to terms with this discovery. At first they tried to fix him, to no avail. But even in the earliest days of their journey, the McDonalds clung to two absolutes: they would love God, and they would love their son. An essential resource for Christian parents of LGBTQ kids, (Matthew Vines, Executive Director of The Reformation Project) this book follows the McDonald family's journey over the next twenty years, from a place of grief to a place of gratitude and acceptance that led the McDonalds to start one of the first Christian ministries for parents of LGBTQ children. Based on their experience from counseling and coaching hundreds of struggling Christian parents, they offer tools for understanding your own emotional patterns and spiritual challenges. They also help you experience a deeper relationship with God while handling difficult or unexpected situations that are out of your control. You will discover tested principles, patterns, and spiritual lessons that can change the way we all see our families, and help Christians at large think through Christ-like ways to respond to the LGBTQ community. Written in an unvarnished, honest, reassuring, and relatable voice, this is a practical guide for parents and a roadmap to learning to love God, the people He created, and the church, even when they seem to be at odds.

Buddhist Ethics: A Very Short Introduction
With over 520 million followers, Buddhism is now the world's fourth largest religion. Over the last seventy years or so there has been a growing interest in Buddhism, and it continues to capture the imagination of many in the West, who see it as either an alternative or a supplement to their own religious beliefs. For complex cultural and historical reasons, ethics has not received as much attention in traditional Buddhist thought as it has in the West. In this Very Short Introduction, Damien Keown explores how Buddhism approaches a range of moral issues of our age, including our relationship with our environment, our treatment of animals, and our stance on abortion, on sexuality and gender, on violence and war. This new edition also includes a discussion of the ethical challenges posed by cutting-edge developments in science and biomedical technologies, including neuroscience, artificial intelligence, transhumanism, and gene editing. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Becoming a King: The Path to Restoring the Heart of a Man
It is God's design, desire, and intention to empower humans and entrust them to participate in the ongoing creativity of the universe. Yet a look at our history and the world around us shows that the story of most men is being entrusted with power and having that power bring harm to themselves and those under their care. What's gone wrong? When can you entrust a man with power? In Becoming a King, Morgan Snyder shares that when we take a deeper pass at the external problems around us, we begin to see the problems within our souls. Yet Morgan suggests there is hope in an ancient path that leads men to become trustworthy kings. Journey with Morgan as he walks alongside men (and the women who love and encourage them) to rediscover this path of inner transformation. Becoming a King is an invitation into a radical reconstruction of much of what we've come to believe about God, ourselves, and the meaning of life. It's an invitation to a rare and remarkable fellowship of like-hearted kings and an honest conversation about what power and responsibility look like for men in our world today. Traveling the path isn't cheap. It isn't easy. It isn't quick. But it is the heroic journey detailed within the pages of Becoming a King that leads to real life; to men becoming as solid and mighty as oak trees, teeming with strength and courage to bring to a hurting world; and to our sons, husbands, brothers, and friends becoming the kind of kings to whom God can entrust his kingdom.

The Noble Renaissance: Reclaiming the Lost Virtue of Nobility
With humor-filled personal tales and in-depth research, Carrie Lloyd will unfold the meaning behind the characteristics of nobility--self-sacrifice, humility, courage, self-conquest, integrity, honesty--all required for nurturing noble virtues. What would happen if we intentionally chose to live a life of nobility? If we thought of our fellow man before ourselves? In a world littered with lawsuits, hate mail and demands for punishment, when did we stop caring for our neighbor? When did we set aside the cause and effect of our decisions? When did we rest on the hidden laurels of contempt, instead of working a little harder, to bring fruit and morality based on forethought over legalism? The noble man makes noble plans and by noble plans he stands, Isaiah tells us. The finest characters in Scripture often carried this descriptor in their back pockets, and such labels didn't always follow their wealth--but followed their integrity. Could we become a little more effective, a little kinder if we consciously began to ask, What's the noble choice?

Republic of Shame: Stories from Ireland's Institutions for 'Fallen Women'
Until alarmingly recently, the Catholic Church, acting in concert with the Irish state, operated a network of institutions for the concealment, punishment and exploitation of 'fallen women'. In the Magdalene laundries, girls and women were incarcerated and condemned to servitude. And in the mother-and-baby homes, women who had become pregnant out of wedlock were hidden from view, and in most cases their babies were adopted - sometimes illegally. Mortality rates in these institutions were shockingly high, and the discovery of a mass infant grave at the mother-and-baby home in Tuam made news all over the world. The Irish state has commissioned investigations. But the workings of the institutions and of the culture that underpinned it - a shame-industrial complex - have long been cloaked in secrecy and silence. For countless people, a search for answers continues. Caelainn Hogan - a brilliant young journalist, born in an Ireland that was only just starting to free itself from the worst excesses of Catholic morality - has been talking to the survivors of the institutions, to members of the religious orders that ran them, and to priests and bishops. She has visited the sites of the institutions, and studied Church and state documents that have much to reveal about how they operated. Reporting and writing with great curiosity, tenacity and insight, she has produced a startling and often moving account of how an entire society colluded in this repressive system, and of the damage done to survivors and their families. In the great tradition of Anna Funder's Stasiland and Barbara Demick's Nothing to Envy: Real Lives in North Korea - both winners of the Samuel Johnson Prize - Republic of Shame is an astounding portrait of a deeply bizarre culture of control. '[A] furious, necessary book' Sinead Gleeson 'Achingly powerful ... There will be many people who don't want to read Republic of Shame, for fear it will be too much, too dark, too heavy. Please don't be afraid. Read it. Look it in the eye' Irish Times 'A must read for everyone' Lynn Ruane 'Republic of Shame is a careful, sensitive and extremely well-written book - but it is harrowing. It would break your heart in two' Ailbhe Smyth 'Utterly brilliant. Please read it' Marian Keyes 'Riveting, immensely insightful and horrifically recognisable' Emma Dabiri 'Compelling ... devastatingly human, [Republic of Shame] will make you shake with sadness and anger' RTE Guide 'A beautifully written and impeccably researched book ... We need more books like this' Caitriona Palmer 'A vital and damning portrait of Ireland's mother and baby homes' GCN.ie 'I've laughed, cried & RAGED reading this book' Taryn De Vere 'Caelainn's book brings real people to the fore' Hot Press 'Caelainn Hogan's harrowing account of the shame industrial complex shows how the legacy of Ireland's treatment of fallen women remains part of the scenery of modern life' Totally Dublin 'For anyone interested in understanding modern Ireland. A compelling and beautifully written investigation into institutions for fallen women and the culture which facilitated them' Siobhan Fenton

Working Alternatives explores economic life from a humanistic and multidisciplinary perspective, with a particular eye on religions' implications in practices of work, management, supply, production, remuneration, and exchange.

The essays in this book-from scholars of business, religious ethics, and history-offer readers practical understanding and analytical leverage over these pressing issues. Modern Catholic social teaching-a one-hundred-twenty-five-year-old effort to apply Christian thinking about the implications of faith for social, political, and economic circumstances-provides the key springboard for these discussions.

Constantinople: Ritual, Violence, and Memory in the Making of a Christian Imperial Capital
As Christian spaces and agents assumed prominent positions in civic life, the end of the long span of the fourth century was marked by large-scale religious change. Churches had overtaken once-thriving pagan temples, old civic priesthoods were replaced by prominent bishops, and the rituals of the city were directed toward the Christian God. Such changes were particularly pronounced in the newly established city of Constantinople, where elites from various groups contended to control civic and imperial religion. Rebecca Stephens Falcasantos argues that imperial Christianity was in fact a manifestation of traditional Roman religious structures. In particular, she explores how deeply established habits of ritual engagement in shared social spaces-ones that resonated with imperial ideology and appealed to the memories of previous generations-constructed meaning to create a new imperial religious identity. By examining three dynamics-ritual performance, rhetoric around violence, and the preservation and curation of civic memory-she distinguishes the role of Christian practice in transforming the civic and cultic landscapes of the late antique polis.

Sahih Muslim (Volume 3): With the Full Commentary by Imam Nawawi
The collection of Prophetic sayings known as Sahih Muslim, is the second most authoritative collection in Islam. It is taught all over the world and forms part of every Islamic library - be it personal, local or national - in the world. Once complete, this set of books will be the only English translation of the commentary and hadiths on the market. The compiler of the hadiths, Imam Muslim, is a household name amongst Muslims, who is famed for assessing and collating the most trust-worthy and reliable traditions of the Prophet Muhammad. Very few Muslims in Islamic history come anywhere near his level of influence or importance. The striking feature about this edition is it includes a full commentary. The commentary author Imam Nawawi is another one of the most trusted traditional voices on Islam (in history). This work is recognised by Shafi Muslims, one of the largest groups of Sunni Muslims in the world, as foundational to their school of thought. By translating, the original work and the commentary together, this pioneering work of scholarship will aid understanding amongst interested English readers, whilst also being a desirable book for libraries and academics. Kube is well connected in the Muslim world and will seek endorsements and publicity. Should this book receive strong support it will become the definitive English edition.
