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.

The Faithful Heart

Claire Lorrimer
Authors:

Harriet was very young when her ambitious, unscrupulous mother succeeded in parting her from Paul, the impecunious medical student Harriet loved. So successfully was Harriet convinced that Paul did not return her deep-felt love, that it was not long before she turned in her loneliness to the eligible Tony, it is not long before Harriet finds herself fighting against her disillusionment and doing her best to remain loyal to her vows. But by chance Paul comes back into her life just at the point at which she is most alone and in need of a friend.

Faith, Doubt, and Other Lines I've Crossed

Jay Bakker
Authors:
Jay Bakker

God is white, male, conservative, and whatever else I want him to be. NOT.God has been exiled from His own creation. Not just by sin, but by religion.Early Judeo-Christian religion painted God as a 'mysterious' and 'unknowable' cosmic being requiring a powerful priesthood to act as 'mediators' between mortal and divine.Jay Bakker sets the record straight. God is not some conservative male 'cosmic cop' policing his wayward creation, and He has never been 'separate' from us as we've been led to believe. Jesus' redeeming presence on earth was proof that the 'mystery' surrounding God is an illusion: God was and always has been present, purposeful, and active in our world.Grappling with what it means to truly 'doubt' and 'have faith', Bakker unpacks and even debunks crucial myths that many Christians accept as fact. He asks the questions no one else dares, such as 'Is God a Hypocrite?' and 'Is God a Good Christian?' He also reevaluates the startling truth about vital issues like divorce, death, Biblical traditions, the influence of tribal dynamics, and even the authenticity of certain parts of the Bible. Our relationship with the divine will never be the same.Insightful and raw, brutally honest but full of grace, this is Jay Bakker at the top of his game.

What About Other Faiths?

Martin Goldsmith
Authors:
Martin Goldsmith

Today our multi-cultural society forces Christians to be aware of those with other, equally strong religious convictions.In this challenging and popular book, Martin Goldsmith answers all the hard questions facing Christians in this area, drawing on both biblical material and his own expertise as someone with wide cross-cultural experience.A brief explanation of other religions' concept of God, revelation and salvation is included, and the question of whether it is right to evangelise those of other faiths is tackled, along with a look at practical methods that can be used.A brand new chapter asks 'Why is Jesus so special?' when each of the world religions have central figure to worship.

Authors:
Faith Eidse, Nina Sichel

A collection of memoirs of deeply personal experiences from South America to Africa, Unrooted Childhoods presents a cultural mosaic of today's global citizens. In twenty stirring memoirs of childhoods spent packing, writings by the famous and the new-many published here for the first time-make universal the experience of growing up without the opportunity to ever "put down roots." World-renowned novelist and author of the powerful autobiography Paula, Isabel Allende captures the essence of coming of age in Chilean diplomatic communities in Bolivia and Lebanon and a global childhood rich in adventures that nurtured her creative soul. Best-selling author and world traveler Pico Iyer, in "Living in the Transit Lounge," sees a mobile childhood as a solid foundation for a life in a restless and increasingly multicultural world. Pat Conroy, author of such well-known autobiographical tales as The Great Santini and My Losing Season, writes of estrangement and the long-term impact of more than twenty moves with his military family during his childhood. And Carlos Fuentes, one of Mexico's most important writers, evokes the powerful link between language and cultural identity in "How I Started to Write."
