Sunni and Shia in Iran, Iraq, or Syria. Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland. Afrikaners and black churches in South Africa. The rising tide of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia across Europe. Israelis and Palestinians in the Holy Land. The fear of immigrants and those who are different. The surge of nationalism. Violence, religious violence, violence done in the name of religion. Religious violence must be understoodaits history, its relationship to sacred texts and communities, and its consequences. Religious violence must also be confronted.

In Confronting Religious Violence , twelve international experts from a variety of theological, philosophical, and scientific fields address the issue of religious violence in today's world. The first part of the book focuses on the historical rise of religious conflict, beginning with the question of whether the New Testament leads to supersessionism, and looks at the growth of anti-Semitism in the later Roman Empire. The second part comprises field-report studies of xenophobia, radicalism, anti-Semitism, and Islamophobia surrounding the conflicts in the Middle East. The third part reflects on moral, philosophical, legal, and evolutionary influences on religious freedom and how they harm or help the advancement of peace. The final part of the volume turns to theological reflections, discussing monotheism, nationalism, the perpetuation of violence, the role of mercy laws and freedom in combating hate, and practical approaches to dealing with pluralism in theological education. Edited by Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks and Richard Burridge, Confronting Religious Violence contains insights from international experts that form essential reading for politicians, diplomats, business leaders, academics, theologians, church and faith leaders, commentators, and military strategistsaanyone concerned with a harmonious future for human life together on this planet.

Read the Introduction.

aThe authors describe the complex congregation in exceedingly careful detail, including a number of archival photographs that bring the narrative to life. Unlike so many congregational histories, difficult periods of tension and conflict are presented alongside feel-good rehearsals of the glory days....The authors and the congregation should be commended for this unique contribution to the field of congregational studies. The research is comprehensive.a
--"Sociology of Religion""There is much to commend it, and my students will be glad to find such a readable book on their syllabi."--"Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion"

"This is an excellent scholarly resource on liberal Protestant church history and is recommended for all congregational libraries."--"Church and Synagogue Libraries"

"A critical history, not a jingoistic celebration....scholarly volume."
--"Spirit"

It was from the pulpit of the Riverside Church that Martin Luther King, Jr., first publicly voiced his opposition to the Vietnam War, that Nelson Mandela addressed U.S. church leaders after his release from prison, and that speakers as diverse as Cesar Chavez, Jesse Jackson, Desmond Tutu, Fidel Castro, and Reinhold Niebuhr lectured church and nation about issues of the day. The greatest of American preachers have served as senior minister, including Harry Emerson Fosdick, Robert J. McCracken, Ernest T. Campbell, William Sloane Coffin, Jr., and James A. Forbes, Jr., and at one time the "New York Times" printed reports of each Sunday's sermon in its Monday morning edition.

For seven decades the church has served as the premier model ofProtestant liberalism in the United States. Its history represents the movement from white Protestant hegemony to a multiracial and multiethnic church that has been at the vanguard of social justice advocacy, liberation theologies, gay and lesbian ministries, peace studies, ethnic and racial dialogue, and Jewish-Christian relations.

A collaborative effort by a stellar team of scholars, The History of the Riverside Church in the City of New York offers a critical history of this unique institution on Manhattan's Upper West Side, including its cultural impact on New York City and beyond, its outstanding preachers, and its architecture, and assesses the shifting fortunes of religious progressivism in the twentieth century.

Called to the One Hope - A New Ecumenical Epoch (Paperback): Samuel Kobia Called to the One Hope - A New Ecumenical Epoch (Paperback)
Samuel Kobia
R158 Discovery Miles 1 580 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In a world torn apart by division and anxiety, there is greater need than ever for church unity, and for united action to help transform the world and its ways. "Called to the One Hope" challenges the churches to provide a common response to the insecurities and dangers that plague humanity in the opening decade of the 21st century. Samuel Kobia, general secretary of the World Council of Churches, has travelled widely and heard the cries of people affected by hatred, violence, starvation, economic injustice and environmental degradation. At other moments, he has heard enthusiastic expressions of joy and hope. He has encountered the spiritual yearning of youth who are seeking a more profound relationship with God. In this book, Kobia addresses humanitys sense of alienation and quest for identity, asking how the churches, the ecumenical movement and the World Council of Churches -- divided as they are -- may yet be renewed for service. Reiterating the radical message of Jesus, he calls for a spirituality of resistance to all that threaten people and the planet. Kobia recognises signs of hope already manifesting themselves throughout the world, and reports experiences of grace and transformation that may serve as models for future Christian witness and common action.

At the eighth assembly of the World Council of Churches in Zimbabwe in 1998, the powerful political drama entitled 'A Journey of Hope' was the beginning of a pilgrimage of conversion, commitment, and above all accompaniment with Africa. The churches and their peoples agreed that the focus on Africa would be one of wholehearted support, including: an emphasis on transformation of Africas social, political and economic systems in order to create a just society; a search for peace and reconciliation between people and communities; a fight to help contain and overcome the scourge of HIV/AIDS; an emphasis on good governance, ethical values and stewardship; and the rights of African children to hope for a bright future. This book is a story of people who have vowed never again to walk on tiptoe: people who will never again submit to humiliation.

Julio De Santa Ana
R301 Discovery Miles 3 010 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Analyses the place of faith communities in the contemporary world and the continuing impact of religions on modernity. Building on research by such scholars as Jose Casanova, Philip Jenkins and S N Eisenstadt, this anthology examines the interplay of traditional religion with the process of modernisation, and the influences that each of these forces exerts on the other. For over six years, the Ecumenical Institute in Bossey, Switzerland, has sponsored a study process on religious life in todays world and its challenges to the ecumenical movement. Participants from various Christian traditions and regions of the world have drawn on this experience in 'Religions Today'. The authors goals include: contributing to a better understanding of religious life throughout the world; confronting modern issues raised in the context of religion; acknowledging the complexity of related problems and the various responses to them; exploring the possibilities of an ecumenical approach to inter-religious dialogue, while recognising many weaknesses and failings that have been exposed through past experience. Addressing topics ranging from secularisation to religious fundamentalism, the authors weigh the potential of Christian churches and the ecumenical movement in addressing the realities of our time.

Steven R. Harmon
R1,287 Discovery Miles 12 870 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Baptists tend to be the "problem children" of the ecumenical movement. The Baptist obsession to realize a true church birthed a tradition of separation. While Baptists' misgivings about ecumenism may stem from this fissiparous genealogy, it is equally true that the modern ecumenical movement itself increasingly lacks consensus about the pathway to a visible Christian unity. In Baptist Identity and the Ecumenical Future , Steven R. Harmon explores the relationship of the Baptist calling to be a pilgrim community and the ecumenical movement. Harmon argues that neither vision can be fulfilled apart from a mutually receptive ecumenical engagement. As Harmon shows, Baptist communities and the churches from which they are separated need one another. Chief among the gifts Baptists have to offer the rest of the church are their pilgrim aversion to overly realized eschatologies of the church and their radical commitment to discerning the rule of Christ by means of the Scriptures. Baptists, in turn, must be willing to receive from other churches neglected aspects of the radical catholicity from which the Bible is inseparable. Embedded in the Baptist vision and its historical embodiment are surprising openings for ecumenical convergence. Baptist Identity and the Ecumenical Future urges Baptists and their dialogue partners to recognize and embrace these ecumenically oriented facets of Baptist identity as indispensable provisions for their shared pilgrimage toward the fullness of the rule of Christ in their midst, which remains partial so long as Christ's body remains divided.

Gabriel Flynn, Paul D. Murray
R855 Discovery Miles 8 550 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Ressourcement: A Movement for Renewal in Twentieth-Century Catholic Theology provides both a historical and a theological analysis of the achievements of the renowned generation of theologians whose influence pervaded French theology and society in the period 1930 to 1960, and beyond. It considers how the principal exponents of ressourcement, leading Dominicans and Jesuits of the faculties of Le Saulchoir (Paris) and Lyon-Fourviere, inspired a renaissance in twentieth-century Catholic theology and initiated a movement for renewal that contributed to the reforms of the Second Vatican Council. The book assesses the origins and historical development of the biblical, liturgical, and patristic ressourcement in France, Germany, and Belgium, and offers fresh insights into the thought of the movement's leading scholars. It analyses the fierce controversies that erupted within the Jesuit and Dominican orders and between leading ressourcement theologians and the Vatican. The volume also contributes to the elucidation of the complex question of terminology, the interpretation of which still engenders controversy in discussions of ressourcement and nouvelle theologie. It concludes with reflections on how the most important movement in twentieth-century Roman Catholic theology continues to impact on contemporary society and on Catholic and Protestant theological enquiry in the new millennium.
