The Power of Children examines Christian teaching about children in the context of family life in the Roman world. Specifically, author Margaret Y. MacDonald measures the impact of the New Testament's household codes (Colossians 3:18-4:1; Ephesians 5:21-6:9; the Pastoral letters) for understanding the status and role of children in Christian homes and assemblies. By allowing children to frame her analysis, MacDonald demonstrates that the rigid social divisions of the period (wives-husbands, children-parents, slaves-masters) were far more complex and overlapping within the Christian context--highlighting the way in which Christian families challenged the prevailing imperial ideology. From curbing sexual abuse to the practice of pseudo-parenting and the teaching roles of both men and women in the family, MacDonald documents the development of an early Christian perspective that valued children as members in the household of God.

While searching for a model of preaching that is apt for our postmodern moment, Kay Northcutt respectfully eschews earlier models and suggests the "what" of preaching should consist in spiritual formation or the practice of "spiritual direction". Taking an evocative, rather than "how-to," approach, Northcutt notes the gaps created by earlier models and makes a case not only for framing preaching as an "attractive art" but also for understanding the preacher's authority as religious in nature. The author provides readers with a new paradigm for developing their own homiletical discipline.

"When childhood friend Victoria rejects his love, Jeremy takes his life on his twentieth birthday. On his twenty-first birthday, he wakes to find Victoria holding his hand, blissfully in love with him. Jeremy can't remember the previous year, but he savors the miracle of waking up alongside the woman he loves. The next time he wakes, two years have passed and Jeremy is now a spectator of his own life. Victoria has given him a child, but the man alongside her is a cruel, egotistical, seemingly unknowable Jeremy. Is it amnesia? Insanity? Or has Jeremy been cursed for his selfish, destructive act?" -- p. [4] of cover.

Let there be war. Let there be massive war such as the world has never seen; let chaos erupt across the entire earth so that mankind should turn on each other. Let them be without so that they steal from each other. Let them fear so that they eradicate one another. Let them starve so that they dine on each other's flesh. Let the sons and daughters of men cry and shriek in their misery; let those below hear it as music to their ears.

A fascinating, accessible introduction to Islam from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Zealot and host of Believer FINALIST FOR THE GUARDIAN FIRST BOOK AWARD In No god but God, internationally acclaimed scholar Reza Aslan explains Islam—the origins and evolution of the faith—in all its beauty and complexity. This updated edition addresses the events of the past decade, analyzing how they have influenced Islam’s position in modern culture. Aslan explores what the popular demonstrations pushing for democracy in the Middle East mean for the future of Islam in the region, how the Internet and social media have affected Islam’s evolution, and how the war on terror has altered the geopolitical balance of power in the Middle East. He also provides an update on the contemporary Muslim women’s movement, a discussion of the controversy over veiling in Europe, an in-depth history of Jihadism, and a look at how Muslims living in North America and Europe are changing the face of Islam. Timely and persuasive, No god but God is an elegantly written account that explains this magnificent yet misunderstood faith. Praise for No god but God “Grippingly narrated and thoughtfully examined . . . a literate, accessible introduction to Islam.”—The New York Times “[Reza] Aslan offers an invaluable introduction to the forces that have shaped Islam [in this] eloquent, erudite paean to Islam in all of its complicated glory.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review “Wise and passionate . . . an incisive, scholarly primer in Muslim history and an engaging personal exploration.”—The New York Times Book Review “Acutely perceptive . . . For many troubled Muslims, this book will feel like a revelation, an opening up of knowledge too long buried.”—The Independent (U.K.) “Thoroughly engaging and excellently written . . . While [Aslan] might claim to be a mere scholar of the Islamic Reformation, he is also one of its most articulate advocates.”—The Oregonian

A collection of over 30 essays by a team of international scholars, featuring children in the Church. The contributions range in time from the nativity to the 20th century. In their historical approach they are theological, theoretical, educational, economic, artistic and literary, liturgical and musical. They raise questions such as: when did childhood begin and end? How deep were the bonds of affection binding Christian parents and children at different periods? Was there, indeed, such a thing as childhood, or were children merely little adults? And how should Christian children be educated? The ways children worshipped, and their participation in the liturgy are recurrent themes.
