Christianity And World Religions: Wrestling with Questions People Ask, Adam Hamilton

Nashville, TN Abingdn Prss 2005 0687494303 / 9780687494309 Paperback Very Good 
Adam Hamilton, named by PBS’s Religion and Ethics Newsweekly as one of the top “Ten People to Watch,” has created an inviting new series of video-and-book studies on love and marriage, life issues, world religions, and Christian denominations. Hamilton calls these small-group studies “fishing expeditions,” because they include tools for congregation wide and communitywide programs to draw in new members. Components include DVD, participant’s book, leader’s guide, and pastor’s guide with CD-ROM. 6-8 sessions / 60-90 minutes Christianity and World Religions: Wrestling With Questions People Ask is a video-based small-group study and outreach program that explores four major world religions- Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism – and compares the beliefs of each with those of Christianity. This six-week study deals openly and honestly with questions people ask about other religions, including why we should believe the claims of Christianity over those of other faiths. As part of the study, author and presenter Adam Hamilton interviews a religious leader from each tradition. He treats the world religions with great respect, recognizing the unique contributions of each. In examining these major world religions and the beliefs of their followers, the Reverend Hamilton urges us as Christians to build bridges with others so that we might grow in our faith, seek peace in our world, love our neighbor, and find positive ways to share the gospel. For group or individual study, the book can be used by class participants during the study group meeting or at home for additional reflection. Includes detailed content for the six sessions.

A Faithful Sea: The Religious Cultures of the Mediterranean, 1200-1700, Adnan A. Husain and K. E. Fleming
13 Adnan A. Husain and K. E. Fleming A Faithful Sea: The Religious Cultures of the Mediterranean, 1200-1700
Oxford One World 2007 1851684964 / 9781851684960 Paperback Very Good 
Contemporary academia relies upon categorization. One can study Africa or Europe; East or West; the Middle Ages or the Early Modern period. In this innovative collection of essays, the Mediterranean is taken as a whole. The birthplace of the three principal monotheistic religions, it is shown to be a distinct cultural space characterized by hybridity, diversity, and cultural dynamism. Distinctive both in scope and approach, A Faithful Sea is insistent that regional history is far more than a mere aggregate of various national histories. Addressing a wide array of Mediterranean religious tradition and identity in the Medieval and Early Modern Periods, the essays unite in highlighting the cross-fertilization of people and society within the region. With contributions from leading specialists on Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, readers from all backgrounds will find the concept of "Mediterraneity" both original and powerful.

New Haven Yale University Press 2000 0300089023 / 9780300089028 Trade Paperback Very Good 
Shrouding themselves and their aims in deepest secrecy, the leaders of the Taliban movement control Afghanistan with an inflexible, crushing fundamentalism. The most extreme and radical of all Islamic organizations, the Taliban inspires fascination, controversy, and especially fear in both the Muslim world and the West. Correspondent Ahmed Rashid brings the shadowy world of the Taliban into sharp focus in this enormously interesting and revealing book. It is the only authoritative account of the Taliban and modern day Afghanistan available to English language readers. Based on his experiences as a journalist covering the civil war in Afghanistan for twenty years, traveling and living with the Taliban, and interviewing most of the Taliban leaders since their emergence to power in 1994, Rashid offers unparalleled firsthand information. He explains how the growth of Taliban power has already created severe instability in Russia, Iran, Pakistan, and five Central Asian republics. He describes the Taliban’s role as a major player in a new “Great Game”—a competition among Western countries and companies to build oil and gas pipelines from Central Asia to Western and Asian markets. The author also discusses the controversial changes in American attitudes toward the Taliban—from early support to recent bombings of Osama Bin Laden’s hideaway and other Taliban-protected terrorist bases—and how they have influenced the stability of the region.

Nashville, TN Thomas Nelson 1988 0840730152 / 9780840730152 Paperback Good 
Light discoloration on page edges. Thumb through any newspaper, listen to any newscast, and the terms "Islamic Al Jihad" or "Shi'ite Muslims" will inevitably be linked with bombings, hijackings, and other terrorist acts. What do you know about this religion that boasts "the greatest joy is to kill and be killed for Allah"? In Islam Revealed, Dr. Anis Shorrosh explains the driving force behind the fanatical, as well as the moderate and conservative sects of Islam. Drawing on his experience as a Palestinian-born Arab Christian and years of research and study, Dr. Shorrosh takes a hard look at an ever-growing religion that currently numbers 900 million members. Through comparisons of Islam's Quran and the Hebrew-Christian Bible, Dr. Shorrosh outlines the contradictions and inaccuracies that form the basis for the Muslims' beliefs, and contrasts the turbulent life of Muhammad with the life of Jesus. In light of recent terrorist activities in America and the continuing tensions in the Middle East, Islam Revealed is a timely reference to the belief system of one in five people on earth.

Decoding the New Taliban: Insights from the Afghan Field, Antonio Giustozzi

New York Columbia University Press 2009 0231701128 / 9780231701129 Hard Cover Used As New Very Good 
Antonio Giustozzi gathers a renowned cast of journalists, experts, and academics to answer the most pressing questions regarding the Taliban today. Each contributor possesses extensive knowledge of the insurgency's latest developments, decoding its structure and organization as it operates within specific regions and provinces. They analyze the new Taliban as it expands: from the new south, where they hold sway; to the southeast, where they struggle to penetrate; from the west and the northeast, now in the initial stages of infiltration; to the provinces surrounding Kabul, which have been unexpectedly and quickly occupied. Along with these advances, contributors review current theories for defeating the strategies and propaganda of the new Taliban. Issues covered include the strengths and weaknesses of the organization; the nature of its networks and whether they are based on traditional ties of kin and ethnicity or more institutional chains of command; its success at maintaining unity, even when faced with attrition in the field; the consequences of unruly leaders and conflicts over rule; the group's exploitation of the opium trade; the factors that have contributed to a resurgence in Kabul; and the extent to which Taliban leaders have imposed strategy among the rank and file, despite immense geographical challenges and poorly functioning communication systems. Guided by the wisdom and expertise of a celebrated, bestselling author, Decoding the New Taliban is a critical tool for comprehending this dangerously chimerical, cleverly resurgent threat.

Bloomington, IN authorhouse 2014 1491852240 / 9781491852248 Paperback Very Good 
Clean and sturdy. George Washington, President of a very young United States of America must once again resort to mayhem and destruction to save his administration and avoid a possible reunification with England and its' King. Trade in the Mediterranean Sea area is totally cut off by the Washington Administration's refusal to pay the piratical Islamic Mussellmen tributes. So with the support of his Vice-President John Adams and his Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson, Washington turns to a former Continental Army friend, Benjamin Stoddert. Benjamin Stoddert now operates the largest and most successful commercial shipping lines in America. With Benjamin's management skills and his son Nathaniel's ship handling skills, the Stoddert Shipping Line was able to establish trade in the very lucrative West Indies while fighting off a hoard of pirates. This resulted in a very successful Stoddert Shipping Lines (SSL). It also resulted in a very handsome contribution from Benjamin Stoddert to George Washington and his political ambitions. But a successful effort in the Mediterranean will require all of Benjamin and Nathaniel's skills. Not only will they need to defeat the numerous gunboats and fierce Mussellmen fighters, they will also have to defeat a Mussellman frigate that is reportedly manned by former British Royal Navy seaman. Success will also require a fighting ship that is capable of doing a lot of different things. It will require unique gunnery as well as fighting men. Can the Stodderts pull this off? Can anyone pull this off? There is only one way to find out and the army General in President Washington was not familiar with retreat.

What Went Wrong? The Clash Between Islam and Modernity in the Middle East, Bernard Lewis
30 Bernard Lewis What Went Wrong? The Clash Between Islam and Modernity in the Middle East
New York, NY Perennial 2003 0060516054 / 9780060516055 Trade Paperback Good 
For centuries, the world of Islam was in the forefront of human achievement -- the foremost military and economic power in the world, the leader in the arts and sciences of civilization. Christian Europe was seen as an outer darkness of barbarism and unbelief from which there was nothing to learn or to fear. And then everything changed. The West won victory after victory, first on the battlefield and then in the marketplace. In this elegantly written volume, Bernard Lewis, a renowned authority an Islamic affairs, examines the anguished reaction of the Islamic world as it tried to make sense of how it had been overtaken, overshadowed, and dominated by the West. In a fascinating portrait of a culture in turmoil, Lewis shows how the Middle East turned its attention to understanding European weaponry, industry, government, education, and culture. He also describes how some Middle Easterners fastened blame on a series of scapegoats, while others asked not "Who did this to us?" but rather "Where did we go wrong?" With a new Afterword that addresses September 11 and its aftermath, What Went Wrong? is an urgent, accessible book that no one who is concerned with contemporary affairs will want to miss.

ESCAPE FROM JONESTOWN: Death, Danger and Adventure Deep in the Primitaive Jungles of South America, Billy Rivers
33 Billy Rivers ESCAPE FROM JONESTOWN: Death, Danger and Adventure Deep in the Primitaive Jungles of South America
Xulon Press 2012 1624197442 / 9781624197444 Paperback Used Like New 
More than 900 lives were lost in the tragic mass suicides in Jonestown, Guyana in 1978. The entire civilized world was shaken by front-page photographs of hundreds of brightly clothed bodies lying all around the Jonestown Pavilion, led to their senseless deaths by an atheist cult leader named Jim Jones. In this fast paced, action packed story, Billy Rivers begins by accurately recounting the demise of the Jim Jones cult, quoting directly from the "Jonestown Death Tape," an actual recording made while the adults were drinking the deadly poison and giving it to their children. On that tragic day, a young man and a ten-year old boy escape into the tangled, snake infested jungles of Guyana where death lurks at every turn, whether by anaconda, bushmaster, crocodile, or jaguar. Escape from Jonestown is not for the squeamish. There are hard fought, life and death struggles against man and beast - and death does not always lose. When a widowed missionary, the young and beautiful Rebekah Hamilton, and a corrupt army sergeant named Claspen Dortin enter the story, a chain of events unfolds that will keep you up late, turning the pages as faith and courage are tested to their outer limits. You will most certainly not be disappointed when you join private investigator Terrance Clark and ten-year old Timmy on their death defying ride through the unforgiving jungles of South America where just surviving the night is a victory. Author Billy Rivers grew up in rough and tumble "big timber" country where wild salmon, deer, elk, bears, and mountain lions abounded. He attended school on the reservation and learned to hunt, fish, fall trees, set chokers, and pull wood from the green chain at the local sawmills. His stories are must reads for all lovers of adventure - young and old alike. www.escapefromjonestown.com

Green Forest, AR Master Books 2016 0890519226 / 9780890519226 Paperback Very Good 
Several highlights. This stunning second volume deals with many Eastern religions like Hinduism, Taoism, New Age, Sikhism, Confucianism, Shinto, and Buddhism as well as other pagan based systems like Witchcraft, Voodoo, Greek mythology, and many more! Religions of the Far East like Hinduism, Buddhism, and New Age have been gaining a foothold in the Western world. We even see witchcraft on the rise and paganism infiltrating the minds of the next generation-even in Christian homes! Why is that? How can a Christian respond? We already know how the one true God has responded, and in this title you will learn: How a Christian can effectively witness for Christ How to refute these false religions What it truly is that these religions teach and why. The Christ follower should be set at ease knowing that all other gods are false as the all-knowing God of Scripture has revealed that He is the only God. Therefore, this volume dives into these styles of religions and looks at their origins and their basic tenets as well as why they fall so short. Understanding the basic tenets of these religions helps the Bible believer see the flaws in these philosophies. In this way one can better discern how to be an effective witness for Jesus Christ while standing on the authority of the Bible.

The Cult Of The Moon God: Exploding the Myths of Islam and Discovering the Truths of God, Brian Wilson

WA Winepress Publishing 2007 1414119976 / 9781414119977 Trade Paperback New 
Islam poses a greater threat to the freedom and stability of modern society than any force in the world today. It is not a religion in the traditional sense. Islam is a system of Satanic, cultural imperialism melded into a seventh-century warrior code bent on subjugating the world-by force if necessary. The Cult of the Moon God exposes the myths of Islam and clearly shows how they run counter to the truths of the Judeo-Christian Scriptures, including: • the great Islamic conspiracy • the cultural war raging today • the strange origins and customs of Islam • how Allah and the God of the Bible differ, and • what the concept of love and peace mean in Islam The Cult of the Moon God sounds a warning bell for the free world, showing what must be done to prevent the cancer of Islam from having a terminal effect on the world as we know it.

Grand Rapids, MI Revell 2007 0800718747 / 9780800718749 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
Some highlighting. Clean and sturdy. In his letter to his protégé, Timothy, Paul says, "I have fought the good fight." In Arabic, those last three words are translated jihad. In Secret Believers, readers are introduced to Brother Andrew's protégé in the Muslim world, Butros. In this riveting true story of the Middle Eastern Church struggling to come to grips with hostile governments, terrorist acts, and an influx of Muslims coming to Christ, readers will meet a group of men and women they never knew existed. The names and places have been changed to protect the real people in the real places. But the stories are true. In his most incredible and eye-opening book to date, Brother Andrew invites you to meet: • Ahmed, a young Muslim terrified by nightmares until he is introduced to Isa (Jesus) • Mustafa, a former leader in a fundamentalist Muslim movement that persecuted Christians • Salima, a privileged young Muslim woman who is held captive by her family when they find a Bible in her possession • Abuna, a priest faced with an aging congregation and constant threats to his beloved church • and many more. Secret Believers not only gives readers a glimpse of the lives of these courageous believers, it also proposes four practical initiatives for Christians in the West to help these persecuted brothers and sisters. It calls us to join this new kind of jihad, leaving vengeance behind in favor of forgiveness, radical love, and unyielding prayer.

Escape, Carolyn Jessop
47 Carolyn Jessop Escape
New York Broadway 2007 0767927567 / 9780767927567 Hard Cover 
The dramatic first-person account of life inside an ultra-fundamentalist American religious sect, and one woman’s courageous flight to freedom with her eight children. When she was eighteen years old, Carolyn Jessop was coerced into an arranged marriage with a total stranger: a man thirty-two years her senior. Merril Jessop already had three wives. But arranged plural marriages were an integral part of Carolyn’s heritage: She was born into and raised in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), the radical offshoot of the Mormon Church that had settled in small communities along the Arizona-Utah border. Over the next fifteen years, Carolyn had eight children and withstood her husband’s psychological abuse and the watchful eyes of his other wives who were locked in a constant battle for supremacy. Carolyn’s every move was dictated by her husband’s whims. He decided where she lived and how her children would be treated. He controlled the money she earned as a school teacher. He chose when they had sex; Carolyn could only refuse—at her peril. For in the FLDS, a wife’s compliance with her husband determined how much status both she and her children held in the family. Carolyn was miserable for years and wanted out, but she knew that if she tried to leave and got caught, her children would be taken away from her. No woman in the country had ever escaped from the FLDS and managed to get her children out, too. But in 2003, Carolyn chose freedom over fear and fled her home with her eight children. She had $20 to her name. Escape exposes a world tantamount to a prison camp, created by religious fanatics who, in the name of God, deprive their followers the right to make choices, force women to be totally subservient to men, and brainwash children in church-run schools. Against this background, Carolyn Jessop’s flight takes on an extraordinary, inspiring power. Not only did she manage a daring escape from a brutal environment, she became the first woman ever granted full custody of her children in a contested suit involving the FLDS. And in 2006, her reports to the Utah attorney general on church abuses formed a crucial part of the case that led to the arrest of their notorious leader, Warren Jeffs.

Fleeing ISIS, Finding Jesus: The Real Story of God at Work, Charles Morris & Craig Borlase

Colorado Springs, CO David C Cook 2017 1434710718 / 9781434710710 Hard Cover New New 
"Is this the end of Christianity in the Middle East?" When a respected Christian communicator read the question posed by the New York Times, he chose to travel to Jordan and Iraq in search of answers. What he discovered left him amazed and inspired. While the news coverage of ISIS focuses on the horrors wrought by this group, there is another side to the story that rarely gets told. While terror is on the rise, Muslims are coming to faith in Jesus like never before. Charles Morris regularly reminds the 500,000 listeners of his Haven Today radio show that "it's all about Jesus," and through his new book--Fleeing Isis, Finding Jesus--he offers a unique, compelling account of the miraculous ways in which Jesus is transforming lives in the Middle East today. As Charles narrates his travels around the region, he shares with readers not just the good news of how Jesus is at work, but he also invites us to wonder how our own lives might be transformed as a result.

Downers Grove, IL InterVarisity Press 2003 0830832041 / 9780830832040 Trade Paperback Very Good 
Are Muslims our neighbors? For increasing numbers of Western Christians, the answer to that question is yes. The crescent, an emblem of the Islamic faith recognized throughout the world, is gaining prominence in the West. As a result, we face an ongoing collision of Western and Islamic worldviews. We have all witnessed the violence and suspicion that can characterize these collisions. But what is the way of the cross? How can we Christians greet our neighbors with the love and thoughtful engagement that reflects the character of Christ and the truth of the gospel? Out of years of experience in working with students in Egypt, Lebanon and Cyprus, Colin Chapman presents a valuable overview of everyday Islamic faith and practice. He carefully outlines the cultural and doctrinal meeting points and points of departure between Islam and Christianity. And he lays the groundwork for us to love Muslims as we love ourselves.

Religions of the United States in Practice, Volume 1, Colleen McDannell

Princeton, NJ Princeton University Press 2002 0691009988 / 9780691009988 Cloth New New 
Religions of the United States in Practice is a rich anthology of primary sources with accompanying essays that examines religious behavior in America. From praying in an early American synagogue to performing Mormon healing rituals to debating cremation, Volume 1 explores faith through action from Colonial times through the nineteenth century. The documents and essays consider the religious practices of average people--praying, singing, healing, teaching, imagining, and persuading. Some documents are formal liturgies while other texts describe more spontaneous religious actions. Because religious practices also take place in the imagination, dreams, visions, and fictional accounts are also included. Accompanying each primary document is an essay that sets the religious practice in its historical and theological context--making this volume ideal for classroom use and accessible to any reader. The introductory essays explain the various meanings of religious practices as lived out in churches and synagogues, in parlors and fields, beside rivers, on lecture platforms, and in the streets. Religions of the United States in Practice offers a sampling of religious perspectives in order to approximate the living texture of popular religious thought and practice in the United States. The history of religion in America is more than the story of institutions and famous people. This anthology presents a more nuanced story composed of the everyday actions and thoughts of lay men and women.
