The Color of Christ - The Son of God and the Saga of Race in America (Paperback, New edition): Paul Harvey The Color of Christ - The Son of God and the Saga of Race in America (Paperback, New edition)
Paul Harvey
R544 R448 Discovery Miles 4 480 Save R96 (18%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

A 2013 CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title. How is it that in America the image of Jesus Christ has been used both to justify the atrocities of white supremacy and to inspire the righteousness of civil rights crusades? In The Color of Christ, Edward J. Blum and Paul Harvey weave a tapestry of American dreams and visions - from witch hunts to web pages, Harlem to Hollywood, slave cabins to South Park, Mormon revelations to Indian reservations - to show how Americans remade the Son of God visually time and again into a sacred symbol of their greatest aspirations, deepest terrors, and mightiest strivings for racial power and justice. The Color of Christ uncovers how, in a country founded by Puritans who destroyed depictions of Jesus, Americans came to believe in the whiteness of Christ. Some envisioned a white Christ who would sanctify the exploitation of Native Americans and African Americans and bless imperial expansion. Many others gazed at a messiah, not necessarily white, who was willing and able to confront white supremacy. The color of Christ still symbolizes America's most combustible divisions, revealing the power and malleability of race and religion from colonial times to the presidency of Barack Obama.

Christianity and Race in the American South - A History (Paperback): Paul Harvey Christianity and Race in the American South - A History (Paperback)
Paul Harvey
R737 Discovery Miles 7 370 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The history of race and religion in the American South is infused with tragedy, survival, and water--from St. Augustine on the shores of Florida's Atlantic Coast to the swampy mire of Jamestown to the floodwaters that nearly destroyed New Orleans. Determination, resistance, survival, even transcendence, shape the story of race and southern Christianities. In Christianity and Race in the American South, Paul Harvey gives us a narrative history of the South as it integrates into the story of religious history, fundamentally transforming our understanding of the importance of American Christianity and religious identity. Harvey chronicles the diversity and complexity in the intertwined histories of race and religion in the South, dating back to the first days of European settlement. He presents a history rife with strange alliances, unlikely parallels, and far too many tragedies, along the way illustrating that ideas about the role of churches in the South were critically shaped by conflicts over slavery and race that defined southern life more broadly. Race, violence, religion, and southern identity remain a volatile brew, and this book is the persuasive historical examination that is essential to making sense of it.

S. Jonathan Bass; Afterword by James C. Cobb; Foreword by Paul Harvey
R561 Discovery Miles 5 610 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Martin Luther King Jr.'s "Letter from Birmingham Jail" is arguably the most important written document of the civil rights protest era and a widely read modern literary classic. Personally addressed to eight white Birmingham clergy who sought to avoid violence by publicly discouraging King's civil rights demonstrations in Birmingham, the nationally published "Letter" captured the essence of the struggle for racial equality and provided a blistering critique of the gradualist approach to racial justice. It soon became part of American folklore, and the image of King penning his epistle from a prison cell remains among the most moving of the era. Yet, as S. Jonathan Bass explains in the first comprehensive history of King's "Letter," this image and the piece's literary appeal conceal a much more complex tale. This updated edition of Blessed Are the Peacemakers includes a new foreword by Paul Harvey, a new afterword by James C. Cobb, and a new epilogue by the author.

Through the Storm, Through the Night - A History of African American Christianity (Paperback): Paul Harvey Through the Storm, Through the Night - A History of African American Christianity (Paperback)
Paul Harvey; Series edited by Jacqueline M. Moore, Nina Mjagkij
R627 Discovery Miles 6 270 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Through the Storm, Through the Night provides a lively overview of the history of African American religion, beginning with the birth of African Christianity amidst the Transatlantic slave trade, and tracing the story through its growth in America. Noted author and historian Paul Harvey illustrates how black Christian traditions provided theological, institutional, and personal strategies for cultural survival during bondage and into an era of partial freedom. At the same time, Harvey covers the ongoing tug-of-war between themes of "respectability" versus practices derived from an African heritage; the adoption of Christianity by the majority of African Americans; and the critique of the adoption of the "white man's religion" from the eighteenth century to the present. The book also covers internal cultural, gendered, and class divisions in churches that attracted congregants of widely disparate educational levels, incomes, and worship styles.

Shetland has always been synonymous with exciting birding. The islands are nationally important for their 21 species of breeding seabirds, and other extremely rare or sporadic British breeders such as the Red-necked Phalarope and Snowy Owl. They are also much-visited by passage migrants. In particular, Fair Isle rivals the Isles of Scilly as THE place for keen listers to go in the autumn, and this picturesque little island, with its famous bird observatory, regularly hosts extreme rarities. Following the style of the popular Birds of Norfolk and Birds of Suffolk, this new avifauna looks in depth at the status, distribution and abundance, past and present, of every bird recorded in Shetland. Population trends for breeders and regular visitors are analysed, and a detailed breakdown of all Shetland records is presented for the rarities. This book will make fascinating reading for all those interested in Shetland's birds, and will be a key resource for those studying the birdlife of this special group of islands.

Themes in Religion and American Culture (Paperback, New edition): Paul Harvey Themes in Religion and American Culture (Paperback, New edition)
Paul Harvey
R932 Discovery Miles 9 320 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Designed to serve as an introduction to American religion, this volume is distinctive in its approach: instead of following a traditional narrative, the book is arranged thematically. Eleven chapters by top scholars present, in carefully organized and accessible fashion, topics and perspectives fundamental to the understanding of religion in America. Some of the chapters treat aspects of faith typical to most religious groups, such as theology, proselytization, supernaturalism, and cosmology. Others deal with race, ethnicity, gender, the state, economy, science, diversity, and regionalism - facets of American culture that often interact with religion. Each topical essay is structured chronologically, divided into sections on pre-colonial, colonial, revolutionary and early republican, antebellum, postbellum and late nineteenth-century, early twentieth-century, and modern America. One can study the extended history of a certain theme, or read ""across"" the book for a study of all the themes during a specific period in history. This book's new approach offers a rich analysis of the genuine complexity of American religious life. With a helpful glossary of basic religious terms, movements, people, and groups, this book will become an essential tool for students and teachers of religion.

Collection of films starring Doris Day. In 'Please Don't Eat the Daisies' (1960) Day stars as housewife Kate McKay, who moves out of New York to the suburbs with her husband Larry (David Niven) and their four sons. However, when Kate finds out Larry has been keeping up a partying lifestyle in the city and has been seen out with Broadway star Deborah Vaughan (Janis Paige), she begins to suspect he is up to no good. In the lighthearted musical 'Calamity Jane' (1953), Day stars as the famous female sharpshooter who would rather hit targets than chase men - until she falls for 'Wild Bill' Hickok (Howard Keel), who would rather shoot Indians than chase after a tomboy like Calamity Jane. The film features the Oscar-winning song 'Secret Love'. In 'The Glass Bottom Boat' (1966) Bruce Templeton (Rod Taylor) is the boss of a research lab who hires the object of his affections, Jennifer Nelson (Day), to be his biographer in an effort to get close to her. Things don't work out as Bruce plans when his friend General Wallace Bleeker (Edward Andrews) tells him that he suspects Jennifer of being a Russian spy. In 'Young Man With a Horn' (1950) Kirk Douglas stars as trumpet player Rick Martin. Rick takes his music very seriously and becomes a star but soon he finds himself in trouble as a result of his passion for jazz, his fiery temper and getting mixed up with singer Jo Jordan (Day) and her friend Amy North (Lauren Bacall). 'Love Me Or Leave Me' (1955) tells the story of singer Ruth Etting (Day) who rose to fame as a movie star in the 1920s. Unfortunately her success was not just down to her talent as she was involved with notorious mobster Marty Sydney (James Cagney) who helped make her famous but made her life miserable. In 'Billy Rose's Jumbo' (1962) Day stars as Kitty Wonder, a girl who runs a circus with her father, Pop (Jimmy Durante). Their business is in dire trouble due to Pop's gambling and they soon begin to lose most of their acts to a rival circus run by John Noble (Dean Jagger). Kitty and Pop still have their star attraction, Jumbo the elephant, and a new wire walker named Sam Rawlins (Stephen Boyd) who Kitty takes a shine to. Sam, however, is not who he appears to be...

Bounds of Their Habitation - Race and Religion in American History (Paperback): Paul Harvey Bounds of Their Habitation - Race and Religion in American History (Paperback)

R498 Discovery Miles 4 980 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

There is an "American Way" to religion and race unlike anyplace else in the world, and the rise of religious pluralism in contemporary American (together with the continuing legacy of the racism of the past and misapprehensions in the present) render its understanding crucial. Paul Harvey's Bounds of Their Habitation, the latest installment in the acclaimed American Ways Series, concisely surveys the evolution and interconnection of race and religion throughout American history. Harvey pierces through the often overly academic treatments afforded these essential topics to accessibly delineate a narrative between our nation's revolutionary racial and religious beginnings, and our increasingly contested and pluralistic future. Anyone interested in the paths America's racial and religious histories have traveled, where they've most profoundly intersected, and where they will go from here, will thoroughly enjoy this book and find its perspectives and purpose essential for any deeper understanding of the soul of the American nation.

R524 Discovery Miles 5 240 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Paul Harvey uses four characters that are important symbols of religious expression in the American South to survey major themes of religion, race, and southern history. The figure of Moses helps us better understand how whites saw themselves as a chosen people in situations of suffering and war and how Africans and African Americans reworked certain stories in the Bible to suit their own purposes. By applying the figure of Jesus to the central concerns of life, Harvey argues, southern evangelicals were instrumental in turning him into an American figure. The ghostly presence of the Trickster, hovering at the edges of the sacred world, sheds light on the Euro-American and African American folk religions that existed alongside Christianity. Finally, Harvey explores twentieth-century renderings of the biblical story of Absalom in William Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom and in works from Toni Morrison and Edward P. Jones. Harvey uses not only biblical and religious sources but also draws on literature, mythology, and art. He ponders the troubling meaning of "religious freedom" for slaves and later for blacks in the segregated South. Through his cast of four central characters, Harvey reveals diverse facets of the southern religious experience, including conceptions of ambiguity, darkness, evil, and death.
