What We Talk about when We Talk about Faith

Peter Stanford
Authors:
Peter Stanford

Peter Stanford has been interviewing people of faith over his thirty-five years as a journalist, and continues to be fascinated by the the connection between faith, religious upbringing, career, achievement and life. In our increasingly secular, sceptical society, those with a religious belief - or who feel themselves positively shaped by being raised in a faith - are often reluctant to speak too publicly about it for a whole variety of reasons.But once a safe space is created in these interviews, the lid is lifted and a discussion can follow that has a wider resonance than mere 'big name' sofa talk. What ultimately emerges is, inevitably, on one level about the personal experience of each individual, but the sum total is greater than the parts. What each of these fascinating figures think, and the road they have travelled, has echoes - whether it be musings on the importance of ritual and liturgy, the power of prayer, the moral and ethical code that has been embedded by a religious education, or the challenge of reconciling the ideals that go with faith with the reality of everyday living. Drawn from across Peter's career, these intriguing interviews with activists, writers and artists, politicians, rebels and those who have taken vows, will appeal to both committed believers and those who find themselves on the fringes of faith.

Not in God's Name

Jonathan Sacks
Authors:
Jonathan Sacks

Despite predictions of continuing secularisation, the twenty-first century has witnessed a surge of religious extremism and violence in the name of God.In this powerful and timely book, Jonathan Sacks explores the roots of violence and its relationship to religion, focusing on the historic tensions between the three Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.Drawing on arguments from evolutionary psychology, game theory, history, philosophy, ethics and theology, Sacks shows how a tendency to violence can subvert even the most compassionate of religions. Through a close reading of key biblical texts at the heart of the Abrahamic faiths, Sacks then challenges those who claim that religion is intrinsically a cause of violence, and argues that theology must become part of the solution if it is not to remain at the heart of the problem.This book is a rebuke to all those who kill in the name of the God of life, wage war in the name of the God of peace, hate in the name of the God of love, and practise cruelty in the name of the God of compassion.For the sake of humanity and the free world, the time has come for people of all faiths and none to stand together and declare: Not In God's Name.

Acts of Faith

Erich Segal
Authors:
Erich Segal

They met as children, innocents from two different worlds. And from that moment their lives were fated to be forever entwined.Timothy: abandoned at birth, he finds a home and a dazzling career within the Catholic church. But the vows he takes cannot protect him from one soul-igniting passion.Daniel: the scholarly son of a great rabbi, he is destined to follow in his father's footsteps. And destined to break his father's heart.Deborah: she was raised to be docile and dutiful - the perfect rabbi's wife - but love will lead her to rebellion. And into worlds the patriarch would never dare imagine.Reaching across more than a quarter of a century, from the tough streets of Brooklyn to ultramodern Brasilia to an Israeli kibbutz, this is an unforgettable story of three extraordinary lives . . . and one forbidden love.

In the aftermath of a sudden divorce, Mariah struggles with depression and Faith begins to confide in an imaginary friend.At first, Mariah dismisses these exchanges as a child's imagination.

As word spreads and controversy heightens, Mariah and Faith are besieged by believers and disbelievers alike, caught in a media circus that threatens what little stability they have left.What are you willing to believe? Is Faith a prophet or a troubled little girl? Is Mariah a good mother facing an impossible crisis - or a charlatan using her daughter to reclaim the attention her unfaithful husband withheld?
