Religious rivalries have been at the root of many human conflicts throughout history. Representatives of nine world religions offer insights into the teachings of nonviolence within their tradition, how practice has often fallen short of the ideals, and how they can overcome the contagion of hatred through a return to traditional teachings on nonviolence. Included are a new Foreword and Preface, a new Introduction by Daniel Smith-Christopher, two new chapters on Islam and the indigenous religion of the Maori, and a new Epilogue. In addition, study questions have been added to each chapter.
Is there a controversial issue in the contemporary world that does not involve religion? Whether it's a debate over the beginning of life, or on sexuality and family life, or on the stewardship of humans over the environment, almost all of the most contentious matters that impact today's society involve people's deeply held religious beliefs. Battleground: Religion helps clarify these complex topics by examining how various religious beliefs and practices impact current political, social, and cultural debates. Each of the approximately 100 entries examines a hot-button issue - from war and peace to the culture wars - and discusses, in a balanced and objective way, the points of view on these topics from all parts of the religious spectrum. Students will come away from Battleground: Religion with a better understanding of the issues that they will be encountering for years to come. Battleground: Religion contains dozens of entries that address how religion impacts the major debates of contemporary society: BLWar and Peace - "Just War," Religion and Genocide BLSexuality and Personal Ethics - Homosexuality, Abortion, Divorce BLHuman Rights - Religion and Organized Labor, Poverty and Hunger, Missionary Work BLCrime and Punishment - Capital Punishment, "Jailhouse Conversions," the War on Drugs BLMedia and the Arts - Blasphemy vs. Artistic Expression, Religion in the Movies. Each entry includes a bibliography or resources for further information.
The conversion of Spanish Roma to Pentecostal Evangelical Protestantism is one of the most unknown yet important religious movements of the past century. Its current transnational extension and its spectacular boom are due, among others factors, to the fact that it is directed, organized and composed of gypsies. This volume provides an important historical, theological, and ethnographic account of the Pentecostal Revival movement that has been sweeping through the Southern European Roma/Gypsy communities of France and Spain especially. Written by Manuela Canton-Delgado, an anthropologist from the University of Seville, together with three others collaborators, it is a fascinating and careful account of the social impact of this movement in contemporary Europe. As such, it represents one of the first serious analyses of a religious, ethnic and political movement largely unknown in North American, to be made available in English.
Contemporary social theory has been much concerned with the re-assertion of ethnic identities in both Western and non-Western politics. This international collection of twenty-one essays contributes to the wider conversation by examining the construction and contestation of ethnic identities both within the Bible itself and in biblical interpretation. An introductory essay brings into focus the main themes of the book - ethnocentrism, indigenity, concepts of culture and the politics of identity - and highlights the ethical issues arising. Part One explores selected texts from the Hebrew Bible and from the New Testament, making use of methodological perspectives drawn from a range of disciplines. Part Two, "Culture and Interpretation," looks at examples of how ethnicity figures both in the popular use of the Bible and in professional biblical interpretation.

The exiles of Israel and Judah cast a long shadow over the biblical
text and the whole subsequent history of Judaism. Scholars have
long recognized the importance of the theme of exile for the Hebrew
Bible. Indeed, critical study of the Old Testament has, at least
since Wellhausen, been dominated by the Babylonian exile of Judah.
In 586 BC, several factors, including the destruction of Jerusalem,
the cessation of the sacrificial cult and of the monarchy, and the
experience of the exile, began to cause a transformation of
Israelite religion which supplied the contours of the larger Judaic
framework within which the various forms of Judaism, including the
early Christian movement, developed.
