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.

When to Walk Away Study Guide: Finding Freedom from Toxic People
Jesus walked away from toxic people, and you should too. In this six-session video Bible study, bestselling author Gary Thomas draws on Jesus' example to show how the best course of action for us to take with some relationships is to walk away . . . or let the other person walk away. In the Gospels, we read that when Jesus spoke a hard truth, sometimes the other person chose to walk away. Other times, the person asked Jesus to leave-and he complied. There were also times when people begged Jesus to stay, but he walked away so he could remain completely focused on the mission God had for him. Most of us have run across toxic individuals who drain us of our joy and peace-people who resent the grace we share and will never change. However, as Gary will show in this study, we don't have to pour our time and energy into these people. Instead, we can follow Jesus' example to walk away from toxic people and walk toward healthy relationships that will encourage us, strengthen us, and build us up. And as we do, it frees us to focus completely on the purpose that God has established for our lives. The When to Walk Away Study Guide includes teaching notes, discussion questions, Bible exploration, and personal study and reflection materials for in-between sessions. Sessions include: Follow Jesus' Example Recognize Toxic People Build a Good Offense Create a Good Defense Speak the Truth Align with Christ Designed for use with the When to Walk Away Video Study (9780310110361), sold separately.

Destroying Fear: Strategies to Overthrow the Enemy's Tactics and Walk in Total Freedom

Jesus came to destroy fear and set the captives free. Speaking as one whom Jesus Christ set free from the devil's grip, John Ramirez, once a satanic high priest, exposes the tormenting weapons of fear of our number one spiritual enemy, the devil, and equips and arms believers with the weapons of our warfare that God has given us through his Son, Jesus Christ, to abort the enemy's mission. In this book, Destroying Fear, you will learn how to get back your peace and purpose and walk fearless into your destiny by dismantling every stronghold and stopping the enemy's attacks once and for all, for a life of freedom!

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.

Religion after Science: The Cultural Consequences of Religious Immaturity
In this provocative work, J. L. Schellenberg addresses those who, influenced by science, take a negative view of religion, thinking of it as outmoded if not decadent. He promotes the view that transcendently oriented religion is developmentally immature, showing the consilience of scientific thinking about deep time with his view. From this unique perspective, he responds to a number of influential cultural factors commonly thought to spell ill for religion, showing the changes - changes favorable to religion - that are now called for in how we understand them and their proper impact. Finally, he provides a defense for a new and attractive religious humanism that benefits from, rather than being hindered by, religious immaturity. In Schellenberg's view, religion can and should become a human project as monumental as science.

Slavery and Islam
What happens when authorities you venerate condone something you know is wrong? Every major religion and philosophy once condoned or approved of slavery, but in modern times nothing is seen as more evil. Americans confront this crisis of authority when they erect statues of Founding Fathers who slept with their slaves. And Muslims faced it when ISIS revived sex-slavery, justifying it with verses from the Quran and the practice of Muhammad. Exploring the moral and ultimately theological problem of slavery, Jonathan A.C. Brown traces how the Christian, Jewish and Islamic traditions have tried to reconcile modern moral certainties with the infallibility of God's message. He lays out how Islam viewed slavery in theory, and the reality of how it was practiced across Islamic civilization. Finally, Brown carefully examines arguments put forward by Muslims for the abolition of slavery.

Perspectives on Early Islamic Mysticism: The World of al-Hakim al-Tirmidhi and his Contemporaries
This monograph explores the original literary produce of Muslim mystics during the eighth-tenth centuries, with special attention to nineteenth-century mystics, such as al-Tustari, al-Muhasibi, al-Kharraz, al-Junayd and, in particular, al-Hakim al-Tirmidhi. Unlike other studies dealing with the so-called 'Formative Period', this book focuses on the extant writings of early mystics rather than on the later Sufi compilations. These early mystics articulated what would become a hallmark of Islamic mysticism: a system built around the psychological tension between the self (nafs) and the heart (qalb) and how to overcome it. Through their writings, already at this early phase, the versatility, fluidity and maturity of Islamic mysticism become apparent. This exploration thus reveals that mysticism in Islam emerged earlier than customarily acknowledged, long before Islamic mysticism became generically known as Sufism. The central figure of this book is al-Hakim al-Tirmidhi, whose teaching and inner world focus on themes such as polarity, the training of the self, the opening of the heart, the Friends of God (al-awliya'), dreams and visions, divine language, mystical exegesis and more. This book thus offers a fuller picture than hitherto presented of the versatility of themes, processes, images, practices, terminology and thought models during this early period. The volume will be a key resource for scholars and students interested in the study of religion, Sufi studies, Late Antiquity and Medieval Islam.

William James, Moral Philosophy, and the Ethical Life
Virtue theory, natural law, deontology, utilitarianism, existentialism: these are the basic moral theories taught in Ethics, History of Philosophy, and Introduction to Philosophy courses throughout the United States. When the American philosopher William James (1842 - 1910) find his way into these conversations, there is uncertainty about where his thinking fits. While utilitarianism has become the default position for teaching James's pragmatism and radical empiricism, this default position fails to address and explain James's multiple criticisms of John Stuart Mill's formulaic approach to questions concerning the moral life. Through close readings of James's writings, the chapters in William James, Moral Philosophy, and the Ethical Life catalogue the ways in which James wants to avoid the following: (a) the hierarchies of Christian natural law theory, (b) the moral calculus of Mill's utilitarianism, (c) the absolutism and principle-ism of Immanuel Kant's deontology, and (d) the staticity of the virtues found in Aristotle's moral theory. Elaborating upon and clarifying James's differences from these dominant moral theories is a crucial feature of this collection. This collection, is not, however, intended to be wholly negative - that is, only describing to readers what James's moral theory is not. It seeks to articulate the positive features of James's ethics and moral reasoning: what does it mean to an ethical life, and how should we theorize about morality?

He and his wife Marah Stohl were lead actors for Manchester Library Theatre in the 1950s.

72 in His Name: Reuchlin, Luther, Thenaud, Wolff and the Names of Seventy-Two Angels
Leading figures at the dawn of the sixteenth-century Reformation commonly faced the charge of judaizing : 72 In His Name concerns the changing views of four such men starting with their kabbalistic treatment of the 72 divine names of angels. Johann Reuchlin, the first of the four men featured in this book, survived the charge; Martin Luther's increasingly anti-semitic stance is contrasted with the opposite movement of the French Franciscan Jean Thenaud whose kabbalistic manuscripts were devoted to Francis I; Philipp Wolff, the fourth, had been born into a Jewish family but his recorded views were decidedly anti-semitic. 72 In His Name also includes evidence that kabbalistic beliefs and practices, such as the service for exorcism recorded by Thenaud, were unwittingly recorded by Christians. Although the book concerns early modern Europe, the religious interactions, the shifting spiritual attitudes, and the shadows cast linger on.

Aquinas's Eschatological Ethics and the Virtue of Temperance
In Aquinas's Eschatological Ethics and the Virtue of Temperance, Matthew Levering argues that Catholic ethics make sense only in light of the biblical worldview that Jesus has inaugurated the kingdom of God by pouring out his spirit. Jesus has made it possible for us to know and obey God's law for human flourishing as individuals and communities. He has reoriented our lives toward the goal of beatific communion with him in charity, which affects the exercise of the moral virtues that pertain to human flourishing. Without the context of the inaugurated kingdom, Catholic ethics as traditionally conceived will seem like an effort to find a middle ground between legalistic rigorism and relativistic laxism, which is especially the case with the virtue of temperance, the focus of Levering's book. After an opening chapter on the eschatological/biblical character of Catholic ethics, the ensuing chapters engage Aquinas's theology of temperance in the Summa theologiae, which identifies and examines a number of virtues associated with temperance. Levering demonstrates that the theology of temperance is profoundly biblical, and that Aquinas's theology of temperance relies for its intelligibility upon Christ's inauguration of the kingdom of God as the graced fulfillment of our created nature. The book develops new vistas for scholars and students interested in moral theology.

The Fight of Your Life: Facing and Resisting Temptation
The purpose of this book is to help and encourage Christians in their battle against sin, and to ensure that they have right and biblical expectations of the 'normal Christian life'. Many Christians live with a false burden of guilt and failure. They have been taught that the battle against temptation is futile, and that they will never be able to obey and please God. John Stevens examines the glorious promises of freedom from sin in the gospel because of the death and resurrection of Jesus. The 'normal Christian life' is a 'victorious Christian life'; we are daily enjoying far more victory than we might imagine.

Irrevocable: Paul's Radical Vision in Romans 9-11, and Why Christianity Can't Handle It
In Irrevocable , King revolutionizes our understanding of the nature and scope of salvation in Scripture and our lives today. Drawing on his trademark attentiveness to the biblical text and the world of both Old and New Testaments, King helps us untangle some of the Apostle Paul's most confounding thought: a portion of his famous letter to the Romans, specifically chapters 9-11. Drawing on Hebrew eschatological and apocalyptic influences, the teachings of Jesus, and a unique understanding of the epistle writer's place in history, King demonstrates that this portion of Scripture-often used in religious history to exclude Jewish people from the table of blessing-means the exact opposite of what it's commonly taken to mean, and this is good news for us all. Irrevocable is a ground-breaking work of canonical theology, with an attention to biblical detail that impresses the studious and a heart toward the grandeur of Paul's vision of God that bolsters the compassionate. If you are tired of old religious polarities that are increasingly irrelevant in a pluralist, globally-connected world, Irrevocable is your invitation to discover a paradigm-shifting vision of life with God, each other, and the entire universe.

A Church For Rachel is a collection of discourses written for, and among, those who mourn, grieve, struggle, and wonder. The Rachel in the title is the Rachel in the Bible, the Rachel who died birthing Benjamin in Genesis, and subsequently became a symbol for sadness in Matthew and Jeremiah: Rachel, weeping for her children who are no more. The church in the title is any church anywhere that surrounds the Rachels of this world with good theology, strong support, and tender care. Sooner or later, almost everyone will weep Rachel's tears, so, sooner or later, almost everyone will need a family of faith to help them go through what they could not go around, a church for Rachel.

New Religious Consciousness
Since the mid-1960s, new religious movements-some exotic, some homegrown-have burgeoned all over the United States. A sense of self-awareness and spiritual sensitivity have found expression in the lives of large numbers of people, especially among youth. Why would this happen? What do these movements teach, and what effect do they have on the future? How does religious consciousness relate to other manifestations of social change, such as communal living, group therapy, and radical politics? Beginning in 1971, an extensive research project was undertaken by a team of sociologists, historians, and theologians seeking answers to these questions. Through a combination of interviews and participant observations, they studied new religious and quasi-religious groups in the San Francisco Bay Area, a spawning ground for upwards of one hundred such movements. The New Religious Consciousness opens with reports on three Eastern-based movements: the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization, Hare Krishna, and Divine Light (more popularly known by the name of its leader, Maharaj Ji). Three quasi-religious movements are then considered: the New Left, the Human Potential Movement (Esalen, EST, Scientology, etc.), and Synanon. Next, three movements having their roots in Western religious traditions are examined: the Christian World Liberation Front (an offshoot of the Jesus Movement), Catholic Charismatic Renewal, and the Church of Satan (whose members believe in witchcraft). Succeeding chapters are devoted to estimating the impact of these movements on established religions and the population at large and to the history of earlier periods of religious ferment in the United States. The book concludes with provocative essays by the editors in which they present separate and differing analyses of the sources, nature, and meaning of the new religious consciousness. A variety of perspectives are represented here: phenomenological, theological, experiential, sociological, and social psychological. The result is a book rich in insight about the nature of new religions. Taken together with a companion volume, Robert Wuthnow's The Consciousness Reformation, also published by University of California Press, The New Religious Consciousness provides the first comprehensive study of American countercultural belief systems.

The Kaleidoscopic Vision of Malcolm Lowry: Souls and Shamans
The Kaleidoscopic Vision of Malcolm Lowry: Souls and Shamans is an interdisciplinary investigation of the kaleidoscopic vision of international modernist writer Malcolm Lowry through an analysis of his selected literary works and correspondence. Nigel Foxcroft examines Lowry's sustained endeavors to attain psychoanalytical atonement with himself and his environment in Ultramarine, Swinging the Maelstrom, The Forest Path to the Spring, and October Ferry to Gabriola. This book also addresses the odyssey on which Lowry and his literary protagonists embark to exorcize souls from the past and gain a deeper insight into human nature in Dark as the Grave Wherein My Friend is Laid, La Mordida, and Through the Panama. Foxcroft analyzes how Lowry's psychogeographic perception of the interconnectedness of East-West cultures and civilizations, along with the influence of pre-Columbian Mesoamerican customs, are necessary historical dimensions of his work. This book traces Lowry's intellectual efforts in pursuing philosophical and cosmic knowledge in order to bridge the gap between the rational natural sciences and instinctive humanities. Scholars of history, literature, Latin American studies, religion, and spirituality will find this book particularly useful.

Listening at Lookout Creek: Nature in Spiritual Practice
Gretel Van Wieren's family cabin, the Cedar Shack, in northwest Michigan's Manistee National Forest, is where she learned to fish and wade in rivers, build fires, send smoke signals, and distinguish false from true morels. It's where she came to love the water and woods, and where she is now trying to teach her children to do the same. But decades of moving from place to place-from Eastern Africa to New England-have made trips back to the Cedar Shack scarce and short-lived. Even after moving back to Michigan, she and her husband's obligations as university professors and parents of three overscheduled teenagers have made forest time rare and brief. It wasn't always like this. For years, Van Wieren studied and attempted to emulate the lives of the mystics. As a pastor in rural, dairy-farming New York, she walked the fields and woods behind the parsonage daily. Remembering that time in her life, Van Wieren concludes that she is out of practice, and she goes to the H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest in Oregon's western Cascade Mountains to conduct a spiritual experiment: Is it possible to rediscover a deep sense of connection with the natural world, and can it be done, with children, in today's high-tech, hyper-busy world? Listening at Lookout Creek weaves philosophical and spiritual interpretations of the natural world with personal, hands-on experiences of particular landed places. It will be of interest to students of environmental ethics, religion, and nature, conservation practitioners, hunting and fishing enthusiasts, and all those who work to connect children with nature.

Negotiating Science and Religion In America: Past, Present, and Future
Science and religion represent two powerful forces that continue to influence the American cultural landscape. Negotiating Science and Religion in America sketches an intellectual-cultural history from the Puritans to the twenty-first century focusing on the sometimes turbulent relationship between the two. Using the past as a guide for what is happening today, this volume engages research from key scholars and the author's work on emerging adults' attitudes in order to sketch out the contours of the future for this exciting, and sometimes controversial, field. The book discussed the relationship between religion and science in the following important historical periods: from 1687 to the American Revolution the revolutionary period to 1859 after Darwin's 1859 On the Origin of Species 1870-1925: the rise of religious modernism and pluralism to the Scopes trial from Scopes to 1966 the present: 1966 to 2000 the third millennium: the voices of Stephen Jay Gould, Richard Dawkins and Francis Collins the future and its contours. This is the ideal volume for any student or scholar seeking to understand the relationship between religion and science in society today.

Leisure, Voluntary Action and Social Change in Britain, 1880-1939
In the final decades of the nineteenth century modernizing interpretations of leisure became of interest to social policy makers and cultural critics, producing a discourse of leisure and voluntarism that flourished until the Second World War. The free time of British citizens was increasingly seen as a sphere of social citizenship and community-building. Through major social thinkers, including William Morris, Thomas Hill Green, Bernard Bosanquet and John Hobson, leisure and voluntarism were theorized in terms of the good society. In post-First World War social reconstruction these writers remained influential as leisure became a field of social service, directed towards a new society and working through voluntary association in civic societies, settlements, new estate community-centres, village halls and church-based communities. This volume documents the parallel cultural shift from charitable philanthropy to social service and from rational recreation to leisure, teasing out intellectual influences which included social idealism, liberalism and socialism. Leisure, Robert Snape claims, has been a central and under-recognized organizing force in British communities. Leisure, Voluntary Action and Social Change in Britain, 1880-1939 marks a much needed addition to the historiography of leisure and an antidote to the widely misunderstood implications of leisure to social policy today.
