Mercy in Action

The Works of Mercy

Everyone Leads

The Francis Effect

Inside the Jesuits

The Jesuits

By Thomas Massaro, SJ

Third Edition By James F. Keenan, SJ

By Chris Lowney

By John Gehring

By Robert Blair Kaiser

The Social Teachings of Pope Francis It has been nearly five years since Pope Francis burst onto the world stage upon his election to the papacy, but already this first pope from the Global South has changed the course of history. This book introduces readers to the social teaching of Pope Francis. It presents (in an accessible way) and analyzes (with adequate rigor) what the current pope teaches on six critical social issues of our time—economic inequality; labor justice in a globalized world; the environment; family life; protecting vulnerable people such as migrants, refugees, and trafficked people; and peace-making and conflict.

The Heart of Catholicism

“James F. Keenan, SJ, is one of the church’s most vibrant, influential, and sensible theologians. His work on mercy and compassion, as well as his larger work on moral theology, has had a profound influence on my own life. His writings, based on Scripture, tradition, and experience, are accessible, inviting, faithful, provocative, and inspiring. Father Keenan has helped to teach me how to think about life, and, more importantly, how to live.” —James Martin, SJ, author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything

Pope Francis has contributed strongly to the growing tradition of Catholic social teachings by his many writings, spoken words, and symbolic actions that inspire a faith-filled enactment of this full range of values and principles. The volume describes his distinctive contribution to a half-dozen of the major areas of Catholic social teaching, and emphasizes the simultaneous originality of his message and its continuity with previous church teachings on these subjects. Each chapter considers what is new and old in Catholic teaching in the topic covered, providing the reader with a basis for evaluating the novel contributions of Pope Francis to an established tradition of reflection that he is steadily renewing, though not overthrowing.

The Works of Mercy introduces readers to the seven corporal and seven spiritual works of mercy, inviting readers to explore mercy in our everyday lives. James Keenan defines mercy as “the willingness to enter into the chaos of another,” and it is one of the central elements of the Christian faith. Over the centuries Christians have defined themselves by feeding the hungry, Hardbacking the naked, and caring for the sick. The book explores the traditional works of mercy and also looks at how mercy enters into ordinary life, in the way we care for our families and the way we care for ourselves. The third edition features more inclusive language to resonate with readers of all backgrounds, new case studies and examples—from health care to the prison system, and new material on how Pope Francis and his papacy reflect mercy.

Thomas Massaro, SJ, is dean and professor of moral theology at the Jesuit School of Theology at Santa Clara University. He is author of Living Justice is a regular contributor to America magazine.

James F. Keenan, SJ, is Canisius Professor and director of the Jesuit Institute at Boston College. He is the author or editor of a number of books, including University Ethics.

How to Revitalize the Catholic Church “Lowney, a onetime Jesuit seminarian and former managing director of J.P. Morgan & Co., shares his personal sorrow over the ever-declining ranks of the Catholic Church. Citing priests’ abuse of children as an ongoing indictment against the church, Lowney challenges Catholics to turn back to Jesus and make him their model. Lowney discusses strategy with a dose of inspiration as he shares story after story of little-known men and women who walked in Jesus’s steps by loving ‘the least’ in society, with remarkable results. . . . Catholic readers will appreciate Lowney’s readable yet challenging text on overhauling the way the church presently does business.” —Publishers Weekly “Everyone Leads is a book refreshingly honest about the church’s current crisis of membership, management, and Catholic identity, but straightforward about what’s needed in response: a more entrepreneurial, accountable church at every level.” —Commonweal “Everyone Leads is Lowney’s heartfelt affirmation of all of us who believe that the American church needs change.” —National Catholic Reporter Drawing on decades of leadership experience, bestselling author Chris Lowney examines the profound challenges facing the global Catholic Church, shares real-life stories of Catholics making a difference, and offers practical suggestions for change. Chris Lowney is chair of one of America’s largest hospital systems, Catholic Health Initiatives. A one time Jesuit seminarian and a former managing director of JP Morgan, he is the author of several books including Pope Francis and the bestselling Heroic Leadership. 2017 • 200 pages 978-1-4422-6208-9 • $24.95 / £15.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-6209-6 • $23.99 / £15.95 • eBook

A Radical Pope’s Challenge to the American Catholic Church 2016 CPA Book Awards - Second place in the category “FIRST TIME AUTHOR OF A BOOK”

“A thoughtful, important study of an ever-evolving and exciting time in the Catholic Church.” —Library Journal, Starred Review “Gehring, Catholic director at the advocacy group Faith in Public Life, presents a well-researched work that features dozens of Catholic voices driving the conversation about Pope Francis and his universal call for a radical embrace of the Gospel. Gehring is a veteran journalist who digs for the nuances at the heart of a story; in a media climate often filled with suspicion and polarization, it is refreshing to read something with true journalistic integrity. . . . Gehring is able to cover numerous topics that are accentuating Francis’ effect on the worldwide Church, including LGBT rights, Catholic identity of institutions, religion and politics, and the necessity to stem the tide of millennials exiting the Church in droves. Anyone who is curious about where the Catholic Church is headed in the 21st century will be fascinated. ” —Publishers Weekly “I recommend this book highly. . . .Gehring’s book is a quick read and a useful point of reference.” —National Catholic Reporter This book explores how a church once known as a force for social justice became known for a few key wedge issues, then looks at the opportunities for change in the “age of Francis.” The first non-European pope in more than a millennium, Pope Francis is shaking up a church that has been mired in scandal and demoralized by devastating headlines.

How Pope Francis Is Changing the Church and the World “Kaiser’s analysis of what makes Pope Francis tick is a wonderful read and to be promoted. . . . The book is an excellent read. . . . I highly recommend this book. It is insightful and well worth the effort of a read. Good on Kaiser for bringing it to us.” —The Catholic Register “Inside the Jesuits offers an introduction to the Jesuits and the things that seem to make them providentially unique to some and regrettably controversial to others. Either way, it is an engaging read.” —THINKJESUIT “The late Robert Blair Kaiser has written one of the first treatments of Pope Francis, and has done so in a journalistic style which integrates memoir with some new insights. . . .Kaiser’s book does help highlight some aspects of the North American Jesuit experience that historians no doubt will find of great interest in years to come.” —Journal of Jesuit Studies Journalist Robert Blair Kaiser takes readers inside the Jesuits’ head-and-heart take on the faith, showing how a Jesuit’s training to make bold moves for the greater good plays out in the first Jesuit pope—a self-confessed sinner who encourages us to love our supposedly-less-worthy selves and help make a better world. Robert Blair Kaiser (1931-2015) was a Jesuitin-training for ten years before leaving to pursue a career in journalism. He served as an awardwinning religion reporter for The New York Times, CBS News, Newsweek, and Time. He was the author of sixteen other books, including A Church in Search of Itself, and he was an internationally recognized commentator on Vatican II.

A History from Ignatius to the Present By John W. O’Malley, SJ

“O’Malley’s book would make an excellent introductory text for anyone interested in the history of the Society of Jesus, the Catholic religious order that nurtured Pope Francis I and thousands of other great men.” —Publishers Weekly “O’Malley has once again written a lively and accessible historical introduction to the Society of Jesus. This slight volume serves to whet the appetite, highlighting the general arc of the organization from its founding to today. . . .This is a timely and . . . approachable introduction, especially given the election of the first Jesuit to be elected Pope.” —Library Journal “This volume is a must-have for libraries of all types. O’Malley’s achievement will be the new standard introduction for all audiences, particularly casual readers, seeking a gateway into the extraordinary and stillevolving legacy of the Jesuits.” —Catholic Library World “Written for a popular audience, The Jesuits dispels the mystique and enlightens readers concerning the Society of Jesus. . . .[A] good choice for readers seeking to gain a cursory understanding of the Jesuits.” —The Christian Century Acclaimed historian John W.

The Roots of Pope Francis’s Social and Political Thought

The Encyclicals of John Paul II An Introduction and Commentary

From Argentina to the Vatican

By Richard A. Spinello

By Thomas R. Rourke “Blessed John Paul II will rank among the truly great popes in history, not only for the immense impact he has had on the social and political fortunes of Poland and Europe, but also for the leadership he has provided in renewing the intellectual and spiritual life of the Church and world. Professor Spinello’s collection of the Pope’s fourteen encyclicals with his insightful introduction and commentary belongs in every thoughtful person’s library.” —Rev. Matthew L. Lamb, Ave Maria University

This is the first book to focus in depth on Pope John Paul II’s fourteen encyclicals, through which he communicated many of the key themes of his papacy. The first part of the book provides helpful background information on the pope’s life and teachings, while the second part of the book comprehensively discusses the encyclicals. Richard Spinello is associate research professor at Boston College. He is the author of The Genius of John Paul II: The Great Pope’s Moral Wisdom.

“Rourke’s portrait explodes both the liberal Catholic and conservative myths…. Rourke analyzes the depth and the breadth of the Jesuit’s deeply Ignatian vision of a Christian society and of a global culture of dialogue and fraternity. Most will be surprised at what he unearths…. Rourke’s local reading of Francis’s political vision is…both fitting and timely.” —The Review of Politics Thomas R. Rourke traces the development of Pope Francis’s thinking from his time as a Jesuit provincial through today. Meticulously researched, the book draws on decades of Francis’s writing, much of it unavailable in English, to assess Francis’s approach to culture, politics, and society. Thomas R. Rourke is professor of political science at Clarion University of Pennsylvania. 2016 • 230 pages 978-1-4422-7271-2 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-7272-9 • $76.00 / £49.95 • eBook

Never Enough Time

Gracious Uncertainty

Latino Protestants in America

By Donna Schaper

By Jane Sigloh

By Mark T. Mulder, Aida I. Ramos, and Gerardo Martí

A Practical and Spiritual Guide Most of us struggle with the “time famine”—the pervasive feeling of never having enough time. Whether we work three jobs or none, whether we have many children or none, whether we live in a huge city or a small town, most of us are burdened with the feeling that there is always more to do than we’re able, more time required than we can give. In Never Enough Time, Reverend Donna Schaper helps us think through the practical and spiritual elements of the time famine and helps us instead aim for a feast. Schaper’s advice centers around our mind-set—understanding both the structural and personal reasons we feel so pressed, clarifying what’s important to us, our core values, and setting realistic expectations, while enriching the time we have. The book goes beyond the idea of “Sabbath keeping” to offer suggestions for all parts of life—particularly the busy moments. Schaper draws on her years ministering to people across all walks of life to show that the time famine cuts across race, class, and gender lines to touch almost everyone. She offers practical and spiritual suggestions that won’t magically give us more time, but can help us live better with the time we have. Rev. Dr. Donna Schaper is senior minister at Judson Memorial Church in New York City. She is the author of numerous books, including Sabbath Keeping. She writes for the Huffington Post, Patheos, The National Catholic Reporter, Sojourners, Tikkun, and other publications.

Faith in the Second Half of Life “In simple, yet lyrical prose, Sigloh, a retired Episcopal priest, ponders a variety of existential and theological questions related to aging. . . . Sigloh is an honest, intelligent, and companionable guide for readers wishing to bring grace into the process of aging.” —Publishers Weekly “Jane Sigloh validates the statement, ‘God made human beings, because he loves stories.’ Her stories and reflections are personal, but as Carl Rogers says, ‘that which is most personal is most universal.’ Jane’s memories and reflections are woven into a practical theology, and they are a sound basis to finding a footing in life’s second half. In this book, Jane Sigloh extends a certain graciousness to the reader.” —J. Pittman McGehee, Episcopal priest, Jungian analyst, and author of The Invisible Church Gracious Uncertainty reflects on issues concerning everyone but which intensify as we grow older: loving more fully, dealing with loss, finding consolation, and having the courage to gaze (even while shaking inwardly) at the nearing reality of death. Jane Sigloh is a guide both witty and wise. She blends personal stories, Scriptural insights, and lessons drawn from years in ministry into insightful reflections on the beauty and challenges of aging. Gracious Uncertainty is an intimate, at times humorous, and often spirit-provoking guide through the unknowns of the later years. Jane Sigloh is a retired Episcopal priest who lives in Charlottesville, Virginia. She is the author of Like Trees Walking: In the Second Half of Life and a beloved speaker on topics of faith and aging. 2018 • 176 pages 978-1-4422-7625-3 • $16.95 / £10.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-7626-0 • $15.99 / £10.95 • eBook

Growing and Diverse

“Part of the Latino Protestant Congregation Project, a joint endeavor of Davidson College and Calvin College. . . This mix of fresh quantitative data and engaging qualitative case studies gives a rich feel for the diversity of Latino Protestant communities, from a Dutch-Latino Reformed church in Iowa to the non-denominational church in Los Angeles that encourages members to ‘transcend’ ethnicity. Additionally, the chapter on Latino Protestants’ political and social engagement is required reading for anyone interested in likely Latino voting patterns in 2018 and beyond.” —Publishers Weekly “Latino Protestants in America offers one of the first social scientific introductions to the topic. Full of rich analyses and careful to emphasize the complexity and nuances of these religious groups, this book belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in understanding the shifting demographics of American religion and the future of U.S. religion and politics.” —Politics and Religion Researchers estimate that by 2030 half of all Latinos in America will be Protestant. Latino Protestants in America takes readers inside the numbers to highlight the many reasons Latino Protestants are growing, the diversity of this group, and the implications of this growth on politics, economics, religion, and more. Mark T. Mulder is professor of sociology at Calvin College and co-director of the Latino Protestant Congregations Project. Aida I. Ramos is assistant professor of sociology at George Fox University and research fellow with the Latino Protestant Congregations Project. Gerardo Martí is L.

Sermons from the National Cathedral

The Evangelicals You Don’t Know

By Samuel T. Lloyd III Foreword by Jon Meacham

By Tom Krattenmaker

Soundings for the Journey

“A mirror of important times in the history of the Episcopal Church and the nation, these sermons will be of interest to most Episcopalians and most seminaries. With a foreword by Jon Meacham.” —Library Journal “Lloyd’s style is marked by clarity of exposition, tight writing, only enough quotations to suddenly arouse interest, and topicality without the subjects becoming quickly out of date. These are well-crafted works that deserve repeated reading in whole or in part, as can serve a mediations for daily prayer. . . . In rereading the sermons it is possible to savor Lloyd’s considerable skills as an expository writer.” —Anglican and Episcopal History Washington National Cathedral stands in an unparalleled position at the intersection of religious faith and public life in America and has been called the “spiritual home for the nation.” This book is a collection of powerful sermons offered by Dean Samuel T. Lloyd III, who occupied its massive pulpit during a turbulent time for both the nation and for churches during the first decade of the twenty-first century. He offers a compelling vision of an intellectuallyalive, publicly-engaged Christian faith that will resonate with readers searching. Samuel T. Lloyd III is a priest of the Episcopal Church in the United States who served as the ninth dean of the Washington National Cathedral, having been installed there on April 23, 2005, and serving until September 18, 2011.

Introducing the Next Generation of Christians

“The wonderfully informative notes section adds nuance and perspective to Krattenmaker’s statements and will aid in understanding his perspectives. His willingness to see things with new eyes is an admirable lesson for people on every part of the political, social, and religious strata. . . Readers of all faiths and backgrounds will see religion, in general, and evangelical Christianity, specifically, in a broader, more positive light through Krattenmaker’s research, experience, and insight.” —Foreword Reviews To many Americans, evangelical Christians have been the chief culprits in the divisiveness of our times. But in surprising and hopeful ways, a new generation of evangelicals is inventing how to be publicly and persuasively Christian without falling into the old stock roles and stoking the usual animosities. The Evangelicals You Don’t Know introduces readers to these Christian innovators embodying this stereotype-busting, boundarybreaking inclusiveness, with each chapter offering insight for how we all, regardless of our own faith persuasion, can become part of this broadening new pursuit of the common good.

“Part memoir, part scholarly analysis, and part message to the perplexed, this book is essential reading for anyone interested in the relationship between Islam, Muslims, and modernity. The common leitmotif that runs throughout this volume is Abou El Fadl’s unwavering ethical orientation. His survey and critique of the good, the bad, and the ugly within Muslim societies and his prognosis for the future of Islam is both persuasive and morally compelling.” —Nader Hashemi, University of Denver “This book is a personal intellectual journey of a knowledgeable mind. Khaled Abou El Fadl calls for a new methodology in dealing with both the scriptural sources and the world. A much-needed voice, constructively critical and full of hope.” —Tariq Ramadan, University of Oxford

“Abou El Fadl is exacting without being abstruse, passionate but never loud. There is much to be debated in this highly informative, critically argued text. And one can only delight in the thought of how much learning and inspiration will come to those who engage it.” —Sherman A. Jackson, University of Southern California In Reasoning with God renowned Islamic scholar Khaled Abou El Fadl explores the role of Shari‘ah in today’s world, for both Muslims and non-Muslims. After a Prologue that explains Shari‘ah in depth, Abou El Fadl wrestles with the moral trajectory of contemporary Islam and highlights the way Shari‘ah can revitalize and re-engage Islam today.

Tackling the Tough Questions “An excellent starting point for people navigating interfaith relationships or working to improve understanding and representation in organizations and public discussion.” —Publishers Weekly “The book is a welcome correction to the politically tortured conceptions of Islam so prevalent today, as Zafar astutely acknowledges the way even Muslims themselves have contributed to these misunderstandings. An important, original new examination of Islam for both the novice and the theologically sophisticated.” —Kirkus “An intelligent, daring, and much-needed contribution to the debate about Islam in the modern world. Harris Zafar has written a remarkable book.” —Reza Aslan, author of Zealot and No god but God Demystifying Islam is a concise guide to what Islam really teaches about provocative topics, from the burqa to Shariah law.

By Nathan Lean

As the world’s second-largest faith and by some accounts the most fast-growing, Islam is often at the forefront of intense public conversation in debates about politics, international relations, globalization, modern society and culture. From the rise of ISIS and revolutions in North Africa and Middle East to more tempered discussions about what it means to be a Muslim in the West and foreign policy making, this student focused textbook unpacks how we talk about and represent Islam, and its place in and relationship to “the West”. Supported by an accessible introduction, real-world case studies, and a glossary of terms and discussion points at the end of each chapter, Nathan Lean provides students with a comprehensive and alternative framework to Islam and the West in the 21st Century Nathan Lean is a writer and scholar of religion, Islamophobia, and Muslim-Christian relations. His work has been featured widely in academic and popular outlets, including in the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, the New York Daily News, the New Republic, and CNN, among others.

Islamic Modernities in Southeast Asia

The Lesser Jihads

Exploring Indonesian Popular and Visual Culture By Leonie Schmidt

“Examining Islamic modernities and popular culture in Indonesia, Leonie Schmidt considers such diverse topics as visual culture, soap opera, cinema, fashion, rock music and urban space. . . . Schmidt’s exciting and ambitious book is an important contribution to continuing debates about cultural transformation, pluralism and the promise of Islamic modernity.” —Chris Hudson, RMIT University Southeast Asia has a large Muslim population, especially in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore, but Islamic culture in these states is conspicuously absent from the wider global discourse on Islam. With a focus on popular culture in Indonesia—a country that houses the world’s largest Muslim population and that is also undergoing modernization—Islamic Modernities in Southeast Asia demonstrates how Islamic modernities are being negotiated and constructed through popular and visual culture from a trans-regional perspective. Looking at a variety of Islamic-themed popular and visual culture including rock music, cinema, art, visual decorations in shopping malls, self-help books, and fashion blogs, the book explores how Islamic modernities are imagined, negotiated, contested, and shared in Southeast Asia. Leonie Schmidt is a researcher at the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis and a lecturer in the Media Studies department of the University of Amsterdam.

Bringing the Islamist Extremist Fight to the World By Phil Gurski

“The Lesser Jihads provides an accessible summary of jihadist ideology and thinking across a number of conflicts. Gurski’s discussion of the Uighurs is a particularly welcome contribution. This work serves as an important reminder that many countries outside of Syria and Iraq have been and continue to be affected by the current wave of terrorist violence, and that Muslims are disproportionately affected by that violence.” —Jessica Davis, author of Women in Modern Terrorism The Lesser Jihads examines conflict through the lens of Islamist terrorist groups. It outlines how terrorists see war, as well as what historical and current events and ideas they use not only to justify violence, but also encourage others to participate. Following a brief examination of recent wars in which Islamist terrorist groups played a significant role (Afghanistan, Somalia, Bosnia, Iraq, and Syria), the text describes ongoing conflict in 22 countries across Asia, Africa, and Europe. It shows how Jihadists use their propaganda to continue what they see as their obligation to fight to protect Islam, and how extremist messaging interprets these conflicts. It identifies and explains the connectivity of these conflicts, framing them into a global world view. In light of the ongoing war in Syria, the text provides a timely warning that other wars may grow in lethality and scope, arguing that there is enough Muslim suffering and perceived international aggression against Islam to feed future conflict. Phil Gurski served for more than 30 years as an analyst in the Canadian intelligence community. He now works at Public Safety Canada as a senior strategic advisor on Canada’s countering violent extremism policy. 2017 • 214 pages 978-1-5381-0706-5 • $32.00 / £22.95 • Paperback 978-1-5381-0705-8 • $64.00 / £42.95 • Hardback 978-1-5381-0707-2 • $30.00 / £19.95 • eBook

Islamophobia

Making Muslims the Enemy

By Peter Gottschalk and Gabriel Greenberg “Gottschalk, a professor of religion at Wesleyan University, and his former student Greenberg analyze what Islamophobia is and how it is manifested through political cartoons, many of which are included with revealing results. . . . With its incendiary cover art and on the heels of the Danish cartoon controversy, this book should attract well-deserved attention.” —Publishers Weekly “A splendid teaching tool for classroom use, not only because it provides a readily accessible narrative about American stereotyping of Islam and Muslims, but also due to its focus on the political cartoon. This would be a beneficial text for undergraduate courses on Islam or the Middle East, since it is both accessible and tackles a popular art form that has almost universal appeal.” —Contemporary Islam In an era when many Americans wonder whether Islam and the West inherently must clash, Islamophobia explores how this view in part derives from centuries-old stereotypes of Muslims as violent, oppressive, and intolerant. Islamophobia considers five decades of political cartoons, revealing Americans’ casual demonizing and demeaning of Muslims and Islam. And the villainizing is shown to be as common among liberals as conservatives.

The Jews of Khazaria

Americans and the Birth of Israel

Jewish Stories of Love and Marriage

Third Edition By Kevin Alan Brook

From the previous edition reviews: “Far from being [merely] a romantic interlude whose brief existence sparked the imagination of generations, Brook’s volume shows that the Khazar experience is intrinsic to the narrative of Jewish history.” —The Jewish Quarterly Review “Kevin Alan Brook’s The Jews of Khazaria is the first work since Douglas Dunlop’s 1967 History of the Jewish Khazars to provide a comprehensive account of Khazar history. . . . the work synthesizes a vast array of secondary literature into a concise and readable digest. . . . Beyond providing a current and accessible introduction to this topic, the work is extremely valuable for its consolidation of this disparate material.”—Journal of Near Eastern Studies The Jews of Khazaria is an accessible introduction to Khazaria—a kingdom in the early Middle Ages noted for its adoption of the Jewish religion. The third edition of this modern classic features new and updated material throughout, including new archaeological findings, new genetic (DNA) evidence, and new information about the migration of the Khazars.

Gabriel Greenberg is a recent Wesleyan graduate specializing in history.

Kevin Alan Brook is an American historian and genetic genealogy consultant who has researched the Khazars since 1993. He contributed an article about the Khazars to The Encyclopaedia of Judaism, second edition, and wrote an introduction for Rabbi Daniel Korobkin’s translation of The Kuzari. He also researches Sephardic Jewish migrations throughout the world and the presence of Jewish ancestry among Latin Americans, Sicilians, and Slavs. His website is Khazaria.com.

By Lawrence J. Epstein

“At a moment when many young American Jews are questioning their connection to the state of Israel, Lawrence Epstein has given us a compelling reminder of the depths of that relationship for both Israel and American Jewry. A fascinating story about courage, commitment, and above all love.” —Yossi Klein Halevi, Shalom Hartman Institute, Jerusalem; author of Like Dreamers Americans and the Birth of Israel tells the dramatic story of how a ragtag group of Americans of all religions worked, often in secret and facing the possibility of arrest and imprisonment, to make sure that after the Holocaust a refuge for Jews would be born. It is a story that is not well-known but deserves to be. The book tells the story of how Americans raised money, gathered munitions, ships, and planes, rescued Holocaust survivors and sneaked them past the British patrols, helped Israel prepare militarily, engaged in dramatic political efforts in Washington and the United Nations to secure Israeli statehood, participated in cultural activities to support the Zionist cause, and in other ways made a decisive difference in allowing Israel to be born. From wellknown figures like Golda Meir to little-known individuals, Americans and the Birth of Israel brings these compelling stories to light and explores the complex relationship between the United States and Israel historically and today. Lawrence J. Epstein is professor emeritus at Suffolk County Community College, where he taught courses on Jewish thought and culture. He served as adviser on the Middle East for two members of the United States Congress.

The Story of the First Zionist Congress

Israel’s Return to History By Colin Shindler

“The book is clearly written and well-organized. . . . His work makes for an informative introduction to an event that inaugurated modern Jewish political action. ” —Publishers Weekly

“The Hebrew Republic can and should be read by two different publics. Lay leaders will find a magisterial, insightful, panoramic look at Israel’s history and politics embedded in the broader context of modern Jewish history and the dominant global trends of the time. Specialists will find a series of original and innovative essays on some of the most significant aspects of Israeli history and life. A must read; a rewarding read.” —Itamar Rabinovich, The Israel Institute, Washington and Tel Aviv The book relates individual episodes from the saga of Israel instead of narrating a formal, conventional history up to the present day. Each section deals with a different aspect of this journey through the decades. The subjects do not cover old ground and are intentionally revelatory as they relate the history of Israel in a vivid, engaging way. Colin Shindler was the first professor of Israel Studies in the UK and is emeritus professor at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. He is the author of The Rise of the Israeli Right, winner of The Washington Institute for Near East Policy Book Prize for 2016.

How Scholars in Germany, Israel, and America Transformed an Ancient Text By Alan T. Levenson

By Jakob Egholm Feldt

“Jakob Egholm Feldt’s book is a masterful exploration of the ‘metaphorical landscape of Jewishness’. He tracks how the early twentiethcentury concept of transnationalism has been lost and refound and he convincingly demonstrates its urgent implications for our own times. At the heart of his study is a reflection on how the particular history of Jews has become a universal experience.” —Miriam Leonard, College London Transnationalism and the Jews directly relates ideas about transnationalism and cultural pluralism to Jewish historical experience. It shows how the Jews and ‘Jewishness’ has been a problematic issue for cultural thought since the Enlightenment, and how this problem produced the alternative ideas of culture and identity that are widely accepted today.

“This is an excellent choice for readers new to Jewish holidays and history and anyone wishing to incorporate these meaningful celebrations into their own lives.” —Library Journal 2014 • 214 pages 978-1-4422-4564-8 • $18.00 / £11.95 • Paperback 978-0-7657-0989-9 • $34.00 / £23.95 • Hardback 978-0-7657-0990-5 • $17.00 / £10.95 • eBook

The Making of the Modern Jewish Bible

Culture, History and Prophecy

By Cantor Matt Axelrod

This is the first in-depth account of the later years of David Ben-Gurion (1886–1973), Israel’s first Prime Minister and founding father. Based on his personal archives and interviews with his intimate friends and family, the book provides an examination of the decisive moments in the annals of Zionism through the lens of Ben-Gurion’s world view.

Lawrence J. Epstein is professor emeritus at Suffolk County Community College, where he taught courses on Jewish thought and culture. He served as adviser on the Middle East for two members of the United States Congress. He is the author of numerous books, including The Basic Beliefs of Judaism and Conversion to Judaism.

Transnationalism and the Jews

From Shofar to Seder “Avi Shilon has uncovered a little known period in Israeli history—warts and all. . . . He has reminded us of Ben-Gurion’s uniqueness, his flaws and his greatness. It is easy to either love him or to hate him. Shilon has injected a realistic complexity into the imagery of this enigmatic and probably shy man who—without exaggeration—changed the course of Jewish history. ” —Fathom

The Dream of Zion tells the story of the Jewish political effort to restore their ancient nation. At the First Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, in August 1897 Theodor Herzl convened a meeting that founded what became the World Zionist Organization. As debates continue to swirl around Israel, this book opens a window into its founding.

Your Guide to the Jewish Holidays

His Later Years in the Political Wilderness

“This book traces how ten Jewish thinkers brought the Bible to the center of Jewish identity over the past four centuries. With a light touch, the author insightfully describes how they and other scholars in Europe, America, and Israel responded to the needs of Western culture and Jewish nationalism.” —Frederick E. Greenspahn, Florida Atlantic University The Making of the Modern Jewish Bible explains how Jewish translators, commentators, and scholars made the Bible a keystone of Jewish life in Germany, Israel and America. In each site, a particular need—religion, nationalism, ethnicity—drove the enterprise of Bible study as scholars wrestled with the demands of the non-Jewish environment and their own indigenous traditions. Contrary to popular conceptions, the author argues that the modern period has been the golden age of Jewish Bible study.

A Gateway to the Kabbalah By Rabbi Eugene A. Wernick

“Welcome to Rabbi Wernick’s classroom. This is a book that serves to make an esoteric subject accessible without compromising intellectual integrity. Rabbi Wernick takes his role as guide and teacher with utmost seriousness, knowing when to hold our hand . . . and when to let go.” —Michael Monson, Jewish Publication Society

“Rabbi Daniel Pressman has been a teacher of Torah for as long as I can remember! His wisdom, humor, warmth, and skill all come together in Torah Encounters, offering a path to the very heart of wisdom and compassion that is the Torah’s legacy. Walk with this master teacher, and you will not only find yourself harvesting life-enhancing jewels, but you will advance with a great sage by your side.” —Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson, American Jewish University

“A Gateway to the Kabbalah provides a brief yet in-depth introduction to Jewish mysticism. It’s not a quick and cute look at the ‘what’ of Kabbalah, like some sort of ‘Dummies’ book. Rather, it provides a serious introductory look into the why and how of Jewish mysticism, its origins, and its reasons for being. It made me want to know more.” —Ira Casel, photographer

The first in the five-volume Torah Encounters series, Genesis offers Torah commentary and discussion guides for each Torah portion.

In One Voice “We hope this book will be read and studied by people in all the Jewish religious movements, for we do not have many such books that force us to re-examine our stands as this one does. This book is challenging, and not comfortable to read for many of us, but the questions that it raises must be confronted by us all.” —The Jewish Advocate

Edited by Cantor Jeffrey Shiovitz and Amy Dorsch

“The complex relationship between an ancient, holy tradition and a modern, rationalistic culture drives many to one extreme or the other. Rabbi Fine’s vision of a third way resists simplistic dichotomies and invites the reader—whether Jew or Gentile, religious or secular—into a way of thinking, and a way of life, in which the deep resources of the past continue to engage and shape a life rooted in our present intellectual and social climate. Insightful, brave, and warmly personal, Passionate Centrism writes a new chapter in the dialogue between faith and understanding. This book is a great blessing.” —Rev. Canon John G. Hartnett, St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church Passionate Centrism is an important discussion of Positive Historical Judaism and the benefit of holding the center of Judaism—that is, the Conservative Movement. This book is an important resource for clergy and other congregational leaders and is an excellent product for lecture series.

Buddhism, Diplomacy, and Trade

Zen at War

By Tansen Sen Foreword by Prasenjit Duara

“An important and well-written work . . . This new edition significantly expands the text . . . Especially important is Victoria’s well-documented contention that Buddhist involvement with buttressing political establishments is not new but can be traced to the time of King Ashoka in ancient India. . . . Finally the author calls all Buddhists to thoughtful consideration and repudiation of ‘Nation-Protecting Buddhism’ as a betrayal of the essential teachings. . . . Recommended.” —CHOICE

The Realignment of India–China Relations, 600–1400

“This is a splendid book. It has an overarching theme buttressed by immense detail. It has a central argument, one that defies and challenges a conventional view. . . . I strongly recommend this book to all those interested in the history of Buddhism, the history of China and India, and the interrelationship among these topics.” (Previous Edition Praise) —China Review International “The sweep of scholarship involved in this big picture is truly exhilarating, and the conclusions offered in general terms are welcome and persuasive.” (Previous Edition Praise) —Journal of Asian Studies

A compelling history of the contradictory, often militaristic, role of Zen Buddhism, this book meticulously documents the close and previously unknown support of a supposedly peaceful religion for Japanese militarism throughout World War II. Drawing on the writings and speeches of leading Zen masters and scholars, Brian Victoria shows that Zen served as a powerful foundation for the fanatical and suicidal spirit displayed by the imperial Japanese military.

This book brings a fresh understanding to crosscultural Sino-Indian encounters, elucidating for the first time significant changes in the religious, commercial, and diplomatic interactions between the two countries.

The second edition includes a substantive new chapter on the roots of Zen militarism and an epilogue that explores the potentially volatile mix of religion and war. With the increasing interest in Buddhism in the West, this book is as timely as it is certain to be controversial.

Tansen Sen is professor in the department of history at Baruch College, CUNY.

Brian D. Victoria is a Soto Zen priest and director of the Buddhist Studies Program in Japan at Antioch College. He has published widely in both Japanese and English, including Zen Master Dogen, which he coauthored, and Zen War Stories.

“Victoria’s extensive research—along with translations of lengthy quotations—substantially adds to our knowledge of the relationship between Buddhism and Japanese nationalism and imperialism. . . .the content is often very interesting.” —Journal of Asian Studies

Relations between China and India underwent a dramatic transformation from Buddhist-dominated to commerce-centered exchanges in the seventh to fifteenth centuries. The unfolding of this transformation, its causes, and wider ramifications are examined in this masterful analysis of the changing patterns of the interaction between the two most important cultural spheres in Asia.

Valmiki’s The Ramayana

Valmiki’s Uttara Kanda

Understanding a Peaceful Path in a Violent World By Hindol Sengupta

“Journalist Sengupta introduces non-Hindu audiences to the world’s third largest religion using a practitioner’s perspective in this quick but substantive text. To Westerners, Sengupta writes, Hinduism is normally seen as a series of sensational clichés about cow worship or funeral pyres. But the reality is much more complex, as depicted here in a mix of personal memoir, general history, and speculation about where the faith community is headed. Sengupta’s summaries are succinct and knowledgeable, and his expertise is evident. He includes scholarly analyses of Indian nationalism and a literature review of Hindu religious works, with some especially interesting discussions of Hindu takes on recent religious debates, such as the tensions between religion and science.... For readers with little knowledge of Hinduism but a strong interest in it, Sengupta will be a welcome guide.” —Publishers Weekly Told from the frank and refreshing perspective of a practicing Hindu, this book analyses the importance of Hinduism as the secular, plural middle path in the battle between Islam and Christianity that is playing out across the globe. Being Hindu presents a faith of peace, liberation, and understanding in an increasingly violent world. Hindol Sengupta is a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader and a Knight-Bagehot Fellow at Columbia University. He has been short-listed for the Hayek Book Prize given by the Manhattan Institute in memory of the Nobel laureate economist F. A. Hayek. He is the winner of the PSF Award in India, which includes among past winners the late Indian scientist and president A. P. J.

Translated with commentary by Arshia Sattar One of India s two greatest epics, the Ramayana pervades the country’s moral and cultural consciousness. For generations it has served as a bedtime story for Indian children, while at the same time engaging the interest of philosophers and theologians. Now this magnificent translation makes the monumental work available to a new audience. Believed to have been composed by Valmiki sometime between the eighth and sixth centuries BC, the Ramayana tells the tragic and magical story of Rama, the prince of Ayodhya, an incarnation of Lord Visnu, born to rid the earth of the terrible demon Ravana. Exiled for fourteen years because of his stepmother s fit of jealousy on the eve of his coronation, Rama enters the forests of Dandaka with his beautiful wife Sita and devoted brother Laksmana. Sita is abducted from the forest by Ravana who takes her to his isolated kingdom on the far side of the southern ocean. The two brothers set out to rescue her and, along the way, make an alliance with a dispossessed monkey, king Sugriva. At the end of a bloody war Ravana is killed and Sita, reunited with her husband, and victorious Rama returns to Ayodhya to claim the throne that is rightfully his. In her translation, Arshia Sattar has successfully bridged both time and space to make this ancient classic accessible to the present-day English reader. An added attraction is her superb introduction which provides new insights and background information for both the general reader and scholar alike. Arshia Sattar teaches classical Indian literature at several institutions in India and writes for a number of journals and magazines. Her books include Lost Loves and English translations of Valmiki’s Ramayana and the Kathasaritsagara.

“In this thematic, well-written portrait, Confucius is less an authoritarian, ultra-stern traditionalist concerned with squeezing everything into a rigid theoretical role and ritual structure and more a thoughtful guide to each individual’s unique spiritual and ethical life, a life in which ritual and role mostly set the table for a life ending in mastery, or gongfu. Ni’s emphasis on a truly important side of Confucius’s philosophy is interesting, and he offers some thoughtful, innovative takes on Confucius’s philosophy. . . . This is an interesting text with insightful passages and challenging interpretations worth pondering. Summing Up: Recommended.” —CHOICE

“No one has written with greater empathy about the Ramayana and about Rama than Arshia Sattar. In her translation and study of the epic’s final book, she gets to the heart of the Ramayana dynamics as they come to their elegiac, contradictory, and transcendent conclusion. Her exploration of the sociopolitical, literary, and religious signifiers in the conclusion of India’s preeminent romantic legend is both accessible and illuminating.” —David Gitomer, DePaul University

NEW

The last and most intriguing book of the Ramayana, the Uttara Kanda is rendered here by noted Sanskrit scholar Arshia Sattar in vivid, sensuous detail. India’s great Sanskrit epic brings to readers the classic dilemmas every individual faces: love versus duty, destiny and free will, the public and the private self, the pull of family, and the right to personal happiness. These universal problems are layered with the quintessentially Indian ideas of karma (action) and dharma (duty). The book explores what it means to be human in a complex and demanding world, considering the parameters and contexts in which we make the decisions that will determine the color and tenor of our lives, the choices that make us who we are. Accompanied by Sattar’s thoughtful essays weighing the moral complexity of this most enduring of epics, this translation crystallizes her deep and intimate knowledge of the Ramayana in a way that is utterly compelling.

A Spiritual Journey with Kahlil Gibran

Torah, Gospel, and Quran

By Paul-Gordon Chandler

“Chandler blends memoir and biography in this introductory exploration of poet Kahlil Gibran’s influences, writings, and impact. . . .

“This is an unusual, ambitious, and groundbreaking book that seeks to discover the threads that connect the sacred texts of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.” —The Bible Today “This new paperback edition of the 2012 volume provides a much-needed interfaith perspective on key sacred texts.” —Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology

This book is a fascinating journey through the spiritual life of Kahlil Gibran, author of the bestselling book The Prophet.

Exploring a New Path Between Two Faiths

“A fascinating and stimulating book about the life and work of Syrian novelist Mazhar Mallouhi. Relatively unknown in the English-speaking world, Mallouhi considers himself a ‘Sufi Muslim follower of Christ’; he accepts Christ and Christian ideas without jettisoning his origins in Islam. . . . Chandler’s book uses Mallouhi to ask new questions about Eastern and Western interpretations of Christianity and goes a long way toward fostering multicultural understanding as it restores ‘Eastern-ness’ to the image of Jesus. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal

Biblical Foundations of Spirituality Touching a Finger to the Flame Second Edition By Barbara E. Bowe With contributions by Laurie Brink and John R. Barker

“In this second edition of Barbara Bowe’s award-winning book, the original text is supplemented by two excellent new chapters. John Barker’s discussion of postexilic theology serves as a bridge between the theology of the Old and New Testaments, and Laurie Brink provides a sketch of the postcanonical movement of Christian theology. Bowe laid a firm foundation for this work; Barker and Brink have added to the trustworthiness of its structure.” —Dianne Bergant, CSA, Catholic Theological Union “Barbara Bowe’s work contributes to an understanding of spirituality that emphasizes how our daily and contextual response to God gives rise to our theology. . . . The contributions of John R. Barker and Laurie Brink to this new edition of Bowe’s masterful work help the flame of her book burn even brighter.” —Gilberto Cavazos-González, OFM, Pontifical University Antonianum Biblical Foundations of Spirituality invites readers to “touch a finger to the flame” of the Bible by offering guidance on what, how, and why to read Scripture as a source of spiritual nourishment. The second edition builds on Barbara Bowe’s acclaimed book with two new chapters by Laurie Brink and John R. Barker introducing key theological concepts and exploring how biblical spirituality was first experienced and expressed in early Christian communities. Barbara E. Bowe, RSCJ, a sister of the Sacred Heart, was professor of biblical studies at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. 2017 • 296 pages 978-0-7425-5961-5 • $35.00 / £23.95 • Paperback 978-0-7425-5960-8 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4422-6262-1 • $33.00 / £22.95 • eBook

Good Girls, Bad Girls of the New Testament Their Enduring Lessons By T. J. Wray

“In 12 chapters, Wray introduces well-known women (Mary, the mother of Jesus; Mary and Martha; the Samaritan woman at the well) and those less familiar (Tabitha, Bernice and Drusilla, Prisca), situating them in their historical and literary contexts and drawing from them lessons for the contemporary world. In general introductions to biblical materials, the author gently introduces source-critical questions and the difficulties of distinguishing fact from authorial invention. . . . Wray’s contemporary applications are eloquent, which commends the volume for church-based adult education courses: she comments on the nature of grief, the need to balance service with self-care, and the toxic effect of rumor. . . . Recommended. General readers.” —CHOICE “T. J. Wray presents twelve stories of New Testament ‘good girls and bad girls’ in a style that readers will find both engaging and edifying. Wray’s studies, although anchored in careful scholarship, are never pedantic and her challenging reflections are aimed at prompting lively discussions and deeper appreciation for these exceptional women of the Bible.” —Robin M. Jensen, University of Notre Dame Good Girls, Bad Girls of the New Testament takes readers on a powerful journey through the vast landscape of Roman-occupied Judea during the first century and the genesis of Christianity.

Mythologizing Jesus

From Jewish Teacher to Epic Hero By Dennis R. MacDonald

“MacDonald doesn’t intend to assail belief; this is not an atheist’s or a scoffer’s approach but rather a postRudolf Bultmann view of the Christian ideal, suitable for believers who are ready to embrace a Christianity that acknowledges its own myth.” —Library Journal “The author of this work . . . has dedicated much of his professional work to comparing the New Testament literature with ancient Greek and Latin classics. This work on Jesus is something of a summary of his more extensive previous studies on this subject. His thesis is clear.” —The Bible Today Dennis MacDonald shows how Gospel stories parallel many Greek and Roman epics—from walking on water to visiting the land of the dead—to compel first-century readers into life-changing decisions to follow Jesus. MacDonald doesn’t call into question the existence of Jesus but rather asks readers to examine the Gospels through a new, mythological lens. Dennis R. MacDonald is professor of New Testament and Christian origins at Claremont School of Theology. He is the author of several books, including The Gospels and Homer and Luke and Vergil. 2015 • 178 pages 978-0-7425-5891-5 • $36.00 / £24.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-3350-8 • $34.00 / £23.95 • eBook

“Jesus of Arabia is one of those rare books that has both a theological depth and an inviting accessibility. Thompson has written a gem about the Jesus most of us in the West never meet—the real one. A brown-skinned, short, Middle Eastern man. I highly recommend both this book and its author.” —Carl Medearis, author of Muslims, Christians, and Jesus In Jesus of Arabia Rev. Canon Andrew Thompson introduces an unfamiliar Jesus—Jesus in the context of his home in the Middle East. Whether readers believe Jesus to be a prophet or the messiah, Thompson enhances our understanding of his work and character by looking at his social context as a man and Middle Easterner. Jesus’s teachings take on new meaning as Thompson explores themes including family in the Middle East, gender roles in the region, food culture, and more. Jesus of Arabia looks at the bridges between Islam and Christianity through the figure of Jesus and how the two communities may reflect each other despite their differences.

Race and Religion in American History “Harvey’s contribution to the American Ways series is a compact overview of his scholarly specialty, race and religion in America, from the English colonial period to the present. . . . A magisterial précis.” —Booklist “The prolific Paul Harvey has given us yet another book that is both a joy to read and breathtaking in its sweep. Bounds of Their Habitation is a masterful synthesis of the growing literature on race and religion in US history. This book seamlessly weaves together stories of white Christian racial theologies, African American religious resistance, Native American traditional and prophetic religious movements, Latino/a Catholicism and Pentecostalism, and many more.... Rowman and Littlefield’s ‘American Ways Series’ aims to provide ‘concise, accessible treatments of central topics in the American experience’ for general audiences and undergraduate classrooms. This book elegantly fulfills that mission.” —Reading Religion 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 concisely surveys the evolution and interconnection of race and religion throughout American history.

Sacred Bliss

A Spiritual History of Cannabis By Mark S. Ferrara

“After laying out the history of potential spiritual benefits, this convincing conclusion provides a quiet rationale for more openness and a return to cannabis use as a spiritual practice.” —Publishers Weekly “The author describes cannabis use from every continent and throughout most religions. . . . It’s undeniable that worshippers have been using it for centuries. Ferrara urges abandoning marijuana fears and advocates for cannabis’ potential as a bringer of ‘peak experiences,’ which he speculates might lead to a kinder, more peaceful society.” —Booklist One of the most important relationships that human beings have with plants is changing our consciousness—consider the plants that give us coffee, tea, chocolate, and nicotine. Sacred Bliss challenges traditional attitudes about cannabis by tracing its essential role in the spiritual and curative traditions from prehistory to the present day. In highlighting the continued use of cannabis around the globe, Sacred Bliss offers compelling evidence of cannabis as an entheogen used for thousands of years.

Shanghai Faithful

The Catholic Invasion of China

Avignon and Its Papacy, 1309–1417

Betrayal and Forgiveness in a Chinese Christian Family By Jennifer Lin

“Lin writes with a novelist’s narrative flair and grace and a historian’s fine eye for detail, and as she sketches the personalities, dreams, and life circumstances of her relatives, her thorough research and compassion for her subjects are evident. Scholars and lay readers interested in China will enjoy this vital work.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review “Richly detailed and informed by fascinating characters, Lin’s story is altogether a compelling and inspiring one that is sure to interest a wide range of readers.” —Booklist, Starred Review “Lin’s book helps explain what shaped the mentality of Chinese Christians.... Anyone interested in modern Chinese (Christian) history, society, and culture and seeks to grasp what shaped the Chinese mentality in general must read this family odyssey.” —Reading Religion Through the 150-year saga of one family, this book traces the remarkable religious evolution of the world’s most populous nation. Shanghai Faithful is both a touching family memoir and a chronicle of Christianity in China. Five generations of Lins—buffeted by history’s crosscurrents and personal strife—bring to life an era still unfolding. Jennifer Lin is an award-wining journalist and former reporter for The Philadelphia Inquirer. In a distinguished thirty-year career, she served as the paper’s New York financial correspondent, Washington foreign affairs reporter, and Asia bureau chief, based in China. 2017 • 332 pages 978-1-4422-5693-4 • $36.00 / £24.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-5694-1 • $34.00 / £23.95 • eBook

Remaking Chinese Christianity

Popes, Institutions, and Society

“The book is a fascinating account of Chinese Catholicism. The traditional view saw that history as an appendage of Western imperialism. M. acknowledges the colonial aspects, but he takes the long view to argue that the ‘invasion’ contributed to the transformation of a mission church into an indigenous expression of Catholicism, now growing into the millions, enriching both the Chinese church and the church universal.” —Theological Studies

“ [A]n impressive achievement, a lively and accessible study that will undoubtedly become the standard work on the Avignon papacy. ” —Church History: Studies in Christianity and Culture

“Mungello speaks of reciprocal transformation, not only the Christian strengthening of China, but even the Chinese strengthening of Christianity. Mungello’s approach locates the invasion’s great success in making Chinese Christianity Chinese.” —American Historical Review

“Employing her familiarity with Avignon’s archives and the streets of the city, Rollo-Koster provides English readers with a valuable introduction to a dynamic, if controversial, period in papal history. . . . Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.” —CHOICE

This book provides a compelling and nuanced history of Roman Catholicism in modern China. As the author vividly shows, when China declined into a two-century cycle of poverty, powerlessness, and humiliation, the attitudes of Catholic missionaries became less accommodating than their famous Jesuit predecessors. He argues that “invasion” accurately characterizes the dominant attitude of Catholic missionaries (especially the French Jesuits) in their attempt to introduce Western religion and culture into China during the nineteenth and early twentieth century. In this important work, Mungello corrects a major misreading of modern Chinese history by arguing that the growth of an indigenous Catholic church in the twentieth century transformed the negative aspects of the “invasion” into a positive Chinese religious force.

This book traces the compelling story of the transplanted papacy in Avignon, the city mainly French popes transformed into their capital. Through an engaging blend of political and social history Joëlle Rollo-Koster tells the fascinating tale of a misunderstood era that brings to life the fourteenthcentury capital of Christianity.

D. E. Mungello is professor of history at Baylor University.

Herod the Great By Norman Gelb

“This book accurately portrays the turbulent life and times of King Herod the Great in a highly readable and engaging manner. Fast-paced and clearly written, it will appeal to a broad audience.” —Jodi Magness, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill While many people are familiar with King Herod’s famous (or infamous) mention in the Bible, his life touches on many compelling stories of the ancient world—from Antony and Cleopatra to the Olympics, and from aqueducts to executions. From his early life as an Arab who became King of the Jews to the mass executions he ordered at the time of his death, Herod the Great chronicles the fascinating life of this complicated figure.

Digging through History follows rabbi and archaeologist Richard Freund’s journey through some of the most fascinating archaeological sites of human history—including the mysterious Atlantis, Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the long-buried Holocaust camp Sobibor. Each chapter takes readers through a different archaeological site, showing what we can learn about past religious life and religious faith through the artifacts found there, as well as what has given each site such strong “staying power” over time.

“An important addition to the existing literature on American history. Carl J. Richard conclusively establishes that American founders were neither theocratic Christians who wanted to establish a Christian Sparta, nor were they outright secularists in the 21st century sense. . . . It is written in such a way that even a layperson will enjoy reading it. ” —The Washington Book Review Carl J. Richard carefully examines the framers’ relationship with the Bible to assess the conflicting claims of those who argue that they were Christians founding a Christian nation against those who see them as Deists or modern secularists.

“Harvey’s book is a concise and scholarly yet entirely accessible work, appropriate both for interested general readers and students. With charts, a helpful glossary, ‘bibliographic essays’ on primary and secondary sources, and a time line from 1491 (when the Kingdom of Kongo converted to Christianity) to Barack Obama’s 2008 election.” —Library Journal

“Historian Chasteen takes a succinct and engaging look at ‘the narrative of marijuana’s global history’ over the past 2000 years. . . . Chasteen ably heightens readers’ awareness of the herb by reviewing the many ways marijuana has been used for ‘creative and philosophical epiphanies.’” —Publishers Weekly “Throughout this concise, fascinating world journey, he compares marijuana with alcohol and considers the extent to which the recreational use of marijuana has been driven by its purported mind-expanding powers. . . . An engaging study. For criminology, deviance, and history collections. . . . Highly recommended. All levels/ libraries.” —CHOICE This fascinating book surveys the global history of marijuana, reaching back millennia to its origins in Asia. Chasteen traces the use of the drug since Neolithic times, when marijuana was among the first domesticated plants. Surprisingly, there is a vibrant spiritual dimension to its long history that Chasteen explores with captivating insight. John Charles Chasteen is a North Carolina writer, translator of Spanish and Portuguese, and, for twenty-five years, professor of history at UNC Chapel Hill, where he was born (on campus) in 1955.

Jewish Responses to Persecution, 1933–1946 A Source Reader

Edited by Jürgen Matthäus With Emil Kerenji

INSPECTION COPY AVAILABLE

“Offering a window into the contemporaneous responses of Jews to the horrors that were unfolding around them, this invaluable book illuminates a crucial aspect of the Holocaust. This collection will prove to be an essential resource in the classroom and beyond.” —Deborah Lipstadt, Emory University “This expertly crafted book puts to rest the fallacy that there was a single Jewish response to Nazi persecution, showing instead how different communities, and even different individuals, drew from their own unique experiences and belief systems in reacting to the growing threat. It is an important lesson for students of the Holocaust to learn, and this thoughtful, nuanced text is a vital classroom tool.” —Jeffrey Veidlinger, University of Michigan This reader combines primary sources from many archival collections with contextual background on key aspects of Jewish life during the Holocaust. It calls into question prevailing perceptions of Jews as a homogenous, faceless, or passive mass of victims, helping to complicate student understanding of the complexities inherent in Holocaust history. 2018 • 296 pages 978-1-5381-0175-9 • $24.95 / £15.95 • Paperback 978-1-5381-0174-2 • $74.00 / £49.95 • Hardback 978-1-5381-0176-6 • $23.50 / £15.95 • eBook

“Once again, Floding shows us why he is a national expert in the area of theological field education. He has assembled an all-star cast of authors across denominational lines to equip both those preparing for ministry and those shepherding future ministers. Theological field education takes the classroom and integrates it into the real world of ministry, making education truly come alive. Engage is one of the most well-rounded, complete resources I have seen for ministry preparation.” —George M. Hillman, Jr., Dallas Theological Seminary “Research has shown that the lecture is out, and handson experiential learning is in. This fantastic book not only offers a wide range of angles on formation for faith leaders, but it also pushes them to engage in making their learning as dynamic and creative as possible. No student should prepare for ministry leadership without this outstanding toolbox of a book in their pocket.” —Christian Scharen, Auburn Theological Seminary Theological field education, in which a ministry student steps out of the classroom and begins practicing with the supervision of a mentor, is a critical part of accredited ministry programs. Engage equips both students and their supervisor-mentors to engage in this important opportunity with energy and imagination, and it prepares students for the challenging work of integrating theory into real-world practice. Matthew Floding is director of ministerial formation at Duke Divinity School. He previously served as director of formation for ministry at Western Theological Seminary.

How Colleges Can Build and Benefit from a Culture of Ethics By James F. Keenan, SJ

“Keenan’s work is multilayered, analytically sharp and engaging, and demonstrates not just the depth of his research but his own personal experience as a university professor. . . . If you have anything to do with the life of a university, even if you are simply a concerned alumnus, get this book.” —America: The National Catholic Review “University Ethics is a powerful and empowering book in the right hands.” —Collegium: A Colloquy of Faith and Intellectual Life Stories about ethical issues at universities make headlines every day. From sexual violence to racial conflict, from the treatment of adjuncts to cheating, students, professors, and administrators face countless ethical trials. And yet, very few resources exist to assist universities in developing an ethical culture. University Ethics addresses this challenge. Each chapter studies a facet of university life— including athletics, gender, faculty accountability, and more—highlights the ethical hotspots, explains why they occur, and proposes best practices.

Happiness and the Christian Moral Life An Introduction to Christian Ethics Third Edition By Paul J. Wadell

From Wadell’s pen flows a rich fundamental moral theology that is a formative guide for virtuous Christian living. Once again Wadell demonstrates his skill as a masterful teacher and scholar by including important additions, clarifications, and explanations to the chapters of his original, dynamic, and compelling work.” —Dawn M. Nothwehr, Catholic Theological Union “Reading Paul Wadell on the Christian moral life is like sharing a conversation with a wise and faithful friend. Through his graceful engagement of Augustine, Aquinas, and a host of contemporary Christian thinkers, Wadell reminds us that the quest for true happiness requires virtue, friendship, and an awareness of the stories that bind us. This third edition of an already superb book is theologically rich and deeply human. One cannot read Wadell without about being challenged and inspired.” —Darin H.

The Enigmatic Absolute

Heidegger and Jewish Thought

Edited by Joshua Ramey and Matthew S. Haar Farris

Edited by Elad Lapidot and Micha Brumlik

“Contemplating enigma and chaos, amidst the nebulous rigours of the indeterminate and the animal, this collection offers the reader a brilliant adventure along the outer edges of thought—where mysticism and philosophy can’t keep their hands off each other.” —Catherine Keller, Drew University, author of Cloud of the Impossible

Difficult Others

“‘Difficult otherness’ is how Elad Lapidot names and frames the chasm, the aggrieved juxtaposition of these two names, markers of traditions, and ‘figures of thought’: Heidegger, the Jews. The expert scholars here assembled have collectively taken on the arduous and audacious task of looking into the abyss, this difficult alterity, reading and measuring it, exploring it, contesting or even bridging it. A remarkable and indispensable achievement.” —Gil Anidjar, Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, Columbia University This book presents Jewish thought as a new perspective for perceiving and examining Heidegger’s philosophy in relation to the Western intellectual tradition, offering new and constructive directions for the current Black Notebooks debate and featuring work by the leading authors of that debate. Micha Brumlik is professor emeritus at the Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main and senior professor at the Center for Jewish Studies Berlin-Brandenburg. Elad Lapidot is a lecturer and researcher at the Freie Universitat Berlin and the Center for Jewish Studies Berlin-Brandenburg.

This volume takes a multi-disciplinary approach to continental philosophy of religion, engaging with philosophy, theology, religious studies, anthropology, cultural studies, and new religious movements, to explore patterns of mind and mortality, existence and ecstasy, creativity and expression, political possibility and religious matrix.

By Joshua Ramey

Edited by Youngsun Back and Philip J Ivanhoe

“Ramey is an authority on the relations between philosophy and the hermetic traditions. Hermeticists devised techniques of divination in response to a world pervaded by chance and risk, and Ramey, in this compelling and fascinating book, makes the argument that neoliberalism resorts to analogous techniques in its quest to understand an economic world shot-through with contingency and undecidability.” —Kenneth Surin, Duke University

“Readers hungry for insights into Korea’s cultural history over the last six centuries need look no farther than this comprehensive survey of traditional Korean philosophy. In these pages they will meet such giants as Toegye, Yulgok and Dasan and will discover that Korean philosophy was both practical and theoretical, reflecting a moral psychology shaped by ethical concerns. ” —Don Baker, University of British Columbia

Offering new insight into the pertinence of Simone Weil’s thought, this volume situates her in the Continental discourses which constituted her philosophical background, her milieu, and which frequently reflected her departures from her contemporaries. Rebecca Rozelle-Stone is an associate professor of philosophy and the director of women and gender studies at the University of North Dakota.

Neoliberal Endgame and the Religion of Contingency

Problems and Debates

“This volume does much more than place Weil in conversation with prominent ‘continental philosophers’. Thanks to Rozelle-Stone’s superb framing of the task, each author offers a timely intervention that tests the limits and possibilities of Weil’s complex thought. Students of Weil will certainly benefit, but so will (future) students of philosophy wherever their starting point.” —Ian Clausen,Villanova University

“Keenan’s book is sharp, offering constructively critical analyses of fundamental moral theological ideas with a profound respect for the Catholic tradition. Keenan uses his own personal stories to recast moral theological ideas in ways that resonate deeply with our lives. Students and colleagues alike identify well with his struggles with moral issues. The chapters on love, sin, suffering, and mercy are extraordinary.” —Dominic Colonna, Lewis University

The Turn to Reflective Believing By Edward Foley “Evolution and Religion is an entertaining and informative introduction to science-religion issues with a particular focus on evolution. It is amazing how many issues Michael Ruse weaves into this lively discussion—the nature of science, origins, history of life, evil and suffering, the status of Homo sapiens, morality, mind, miracles, and many more—to give the reader a vivid sense of several representative positions in the larger cultural arena.” —Michael L. Peterson, Asbury Theological Seminary

Philosopher Michael Ruse, a leading expert on Charles Darwin, presents a fictional dialogue among characters with sharply contrasting positions regarding the tensions between science and religious belief. The second edition of this innovative text incorporates the influence of Eastern religions and philosophies on the debate on human origins, broadening the contextual reach of the dialogue into comparative philosophy and religious studies. The up-to-date dialogue form is designed to spark lively discussion among students, whether in an introductory philosophy course, or a more advanced offering in philosophy or theology.

By Kenneth R. Himes, OFM

By Colby Dickinson and Adam Kotsko

“It is only through [the] theological dimension that we can discern the radical emancipatory project which sustains Agamben’s work. For this reason, Dickinson’s and Kotsko’s book is indispensable for everyone who wants not only to understand where we are today, but also to discern the possibilities for breaking out of our impasses. In short, their book is simply a book for everyone – for everyone who is ready to think.” —Slavoj Žižek

Theological reflection—connecting life, ministry, and religious traditions —is a core component of ministerial training. Contemporary ministers serve in increasingly interfaith contexts and also with those without faith. This book addresses that reality of our society and reconsiders theological reflection in such an unexpectedly diverse context.

Edward Foley is Duns Scotus Professor of Spirituality and the founding director of the Ecumenical Doctor of Ministry Program at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. He is a Capuchin-Franciscan and ordained Roman Catholic priest.

“Kenneth Himes has provided a balanced, wellresearched, and readable guide to the issues. His central purpose is to bring just war theory to bear on the targeting of individuals who are not on active battlefields. An associate professor of theology at Boston College, Himes dedicates the book to the students he’s taught over the years, and that is fitting: it is the sort of book one would expect from a fair and dedicated teacher because it explains complex topics clearly and presents both sides of fraught moral debates.” —The Christian Century

This book provides an important exploration of the thorny ethical implications of drone warfare and targeted killing. The book leads readers through the ethics of targeted killings from ancient times to the contemporary Israeli-Palestinian conflict, then looks specifically at new issues related to the U.S. use of drones for targeted killings.

Between Two Rivers

A Memoir of Christian Social Action and Ethics By Ronald H. Stone

An Introduction

Edited by Kathleen A. Cahalan and Gordon S. Mikoski “The editors have deepened and expanded the tent with a superb collection of essays. The book deepens out understanding by inviting fourteen different authors to examine common features of practical theology from diverse perspectives in an accessible and systematic way. . . . The structure is genius because it makes it possible to read the book in a number of different ways. . . .

The Great Perhaps God as a Question

“This lucid and probing book offers a new way to understand the political and ethical philosophies of Hannah Arendt and Emmanuel Levinas in relation to one another and to the broader questions raised by ethical and political philosophy. Bold, clear, and provocative, this book initiates a set of critical conversations that we have yet to see.” —Judith Butler, University of California, Berkeley

By Burton F. Porter

“A one-stop shop for those who seek to be thoughtful about the divine, The Great Perhaps provides a thorough discussion of the central issues and problems of the spiritual thinker, exploring them in a sympathetic manner without being blind to their challenges. Unique in its global vision, the book relates philosophical concerns to everyday common sense. The reader will come away not merely with a history of the subject, but also with a sense of its contemporary pressing issues, strengths, and concerns.” —Andrew Pessin, Connecticut College, author of The God Question

By bringing Hannah Arendt’s politics into dialogue with Emmanuel Levinas’ ethics, this book develops an approach to the political that is relational, inclusive, and empowering.

The Challenge of Pluralism

Making Peace with Faith

Eighth Edition By Kenneth D. Wald and Allison Calhoun-Brown “I look forward to each new edition of this text. I have long recommended it to undergraduate and graduate students, and to colleagues who want to better understand the relationship between religion and politics in the United States. Now a classic has gotten even better, with expanded coverage of religion and gender politics, and the politics of sexual diversity. I recommend this highly to political scientists, sociologists, historians, and anyone interested in the myriad ways that politics and religion influence one another.” —Clyde Wilcox, Georgetown University Religion and Politics in the United States has been fully updated with material from current scholarship to cover recent American politics and elections. Organized into four sections, this text serves to I. establish a framework for studying the relationship between religion and politics; II. evaluate the contribution of religion to core American values and the design of American government; III. explore religious forces in politics, and IV. discuss the religious right, center, and left as well as the impact of religion on the fight for equality based on gender and sexual orientation. With the addition of pedagogical features such as discussion questions and further readings by chapter, this authoritative text is accessible and student-friendly for all religion and politics courses.

Church and State in Six Democracies

Third Edition By J. Christopher Soper, Kevin R. den Dulk, and Stephen V. Monsma Previous Edition Praise: “An exceptionally illuminating book . . . this volume is, in short, an excellent piece of scholarship and deserves a wide readership.”—Journal of Church and State “A useful comparative study. . . . This survey can help Americans appreciate the peculiarities, both good and bad, of our church-state arrangements.” —First Things In a thoroughly revised and expanded edition that now includes France, this essential text offers a rigorous, systematic comparison of church-state relations in six Western nations: the United States, France, England, Germany, the Netherlands, and Australia. As successful and stable political democracies, these countries share a commitment to protecting the religious rights of their citizens. The book demonstrates, however, that each has taken substantially different approaches to resolving basic church-state questions. The authors examine both the historical roots of those differences and more recent conflicts over Islam and other religious minorities, explain how contemporary church-state issues are addressed, and provide a framework for assessing the success of each of the six states in protecting the religious rights of its citizens using a framework based on the ideal of governmental neutrality and evenhandedness toward people of all faiths and of none.

The Challenges of Religion and Peacebuilding Edited by Michelle G. Garred and Mohammed Abu-Nimer

“With the growing recognition of the role of religious leaders in building peace, this book is a much needed testimony of the enormous challenges facing religious peacemakers around the world. The personal and professional stories bring hope and inspiration in how to sustain interreligious peace initiatives in places where politicians failed. Policy makers can benefit from the lessons learned on how to best engage with faith based communities and leaders.” —Adama Dieng, UN SecretaryGeneral’s Special Advisor for the Prevention of Genocide Although religion is almost never a root cause, it often gets pulled into conflict as a powerful element, especially where conflicting parties have different religious identities. Every faith tradition offers resources for peace, and secular policy makers are more and more acknowledging the influence of faith-based actors, even though there remains a tendency to associate religion more with conflict than peace. In this text, practitioners from different faiths relate and explore the many challenges they face in their peacebuilding work, which their secular partners may be unaware of. The contributors are all practitioners whose faith or religious experience motivates their work for peace and justice in such a way that it influences their actions. Their roles are diverse, as some work for faith-based institutions, while others engage in secular contexts. The multiple perspectives featured represent multiple faiths (Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish), diverse scopes of practice, different geographic regions. Michelle Garred is associate director of peacebuilding at World Vision International (a global Christian relief, development and advocacy organization). Mohammed Abu-Nimer is director of the Peacebuilding and Development Institute at American University.

A Matter of Discretion

The Politics of Catholic Priests in the United States and Ireland By Brian R. Calfano, Melissa R. Michelson, and Elizabeth A. Oldmixon

“While we know a great deal about individual clergy members from a generation of study, we still know very little about their institutional constraints, the context in which they act, until now. The authors expertly navigate the complex environment of the Catholic Church across nations (for the first time) with creative data collection. This book, therefore, represents a phase change in the study of clergy; it is a true agenda setting work.” —Paul A. Djupe, Denison University In this book, the authors assess the institutional and personal factors at play in determining Roman Catholic priests’ political attitudes and behaviors by leveraging survey experiments on priest samples from the US and Ireland and featuring the first ever field experiment conducted on a group of American clergy. Brian R. Calfano is assistant professor of political science and journalism at the University of Cincinnati and is the academic advisor for the EmbRACELA study conducted by the City of Los Angeles Human Relations Commission.

The Refugee Crisis and Religion

Secularism, Security and Hospitality in Question Edited by Luca Mavelli and Erin Wilson

“This is a timely and valuable collection for anyone wishing to think seriously about the refugee crisis beyond the banal and dangerous claims about ‘religious terrorism’ and ‘civilizational incompatibility.’”—Talal Asad, Graduate Center of the City University of New York The current refugee crisis sweeping Europe, and much of the world, closely intersects with largely neglected questions of religion. Moving beyond discussions of religious differences, what can we learn about the interaction between religion and migration? Do faith-based organisations play a role within the refugee regime? How do religious traditions and perspectives challenge and inform current practices and policies towards refugees? This volume gathers together expertise from academics and practitioners, as well as migrant voices, in order to investigate these interconnections. It shows that reconsidering our understanding and approaches to both could generate creative alternative responses to the growing global migration crisis.

Promoting, Reforming, or Resisting Neoliberal Globalization?

INSPECTION COPY AVAILABLE

“This is the book that finally confronts the multiple intersections between religion and economics in the contemporary world. The editors have accomplished a rare double feat: bringing together innovative and exciting work that explores the constitutive nature of religious movements and support for or resistance to neoliberalism across the globe, and showcasing authors from around the world to explicate these connections. The resulting volume is an impressive contribution that should be read widely.” —Cecelia Lynch, University of California, Irvine

This book systematically studies the relationship of religious activism towards neoliberal globalization. It considers how religious organizations often play a central role in the resistance against global capitalism, endeavouring to offer alternatives and developments for reform. But it also examines the other side of the coin, showing how many religious groups help to diffuse neoliberal values, promote and reinforce practices of capitalism. Drawing on a unique set of case studies from around the world, the chapters examine a range of groups and their practices in order to provide a thorough examination of the relationship between religion and the global political economy.

The authors trace the influence of religion and party in the U.S. Congress over time. For almost four decades these key issues have competed for public attention with health care, war, terrorism, and the growing inequity between the incomes of the middle classes and those of corporate America.

Racism without Racists

Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in America Fifth Edition By Eduardo Bonilla-Silva

“Students love this book—it is often life-changing for them. Both students of color and white students see themselves in this book, with each gaining more meaningful understanding of racial context in our times and what they can do for racial justice.” —Karen S. Glover, California State University, San Marcos “From the Black Lives Matter movement to the unexpected election of Donald Trump, recent events have made undeniably clear the continuing significance of race and racism in the United States. Updated with new material, this fifth edition of Eduardo BonillaSilva’s now-classic Racism without Racists is thus more than ever essential reading for understanding the racial realities of a country in denial about its past and present.” —Charles W. Mills, CUNY Graduate Center The fifth edition of this provocative book makes clear that color blind racism is as insidious now as ever. It features new material on our current racial climate, including the Black Lives Matter movement; a significantly revised chapter that examines the Obama presidency, the 2016 election, and Trump’s presidency; and a new chapter addressing what readers can do to confront racism—both personally and on a larger structural level.

In Good Faith

Sacred Fury

By Maria Polonchek

Third Edition By Charles Selengut

Secular Parenting in a Religious World “Poet and essayist Polonchek, having been pushed away from religion by the fire-and-brimstone theology of her Christian youth, revels in her identity as an ‘apostate’ and secular humanist: ‘Because my identity as a child was so rooted in the religion given to me, my identity as an adult is rooted in my deconversion.’ . . . Religion may have failed Polonchek, but her well-researched, swiftly moving exploration of the development of morality, meaning, and awe during childhood will be worth a look for readers interested in childhood development.” —Publishers Weekly “Polonchek’s expertise doesn’t come from an academic degree or background in divinity or counseling—it stems from her ability to write about her personal spiritual journey. She deftly shares her experience as a parent and reflects on contemporary religious, nonreligious, and moral issues. . . . There are many books on spirituality for Christian parents but few for secular families—this will fill an important gap. This is not a how-to parenting book. Although the book is written in the style of a memoir, those raising children will find the author’s ideas helpful. In Good Faith is a good addition to public library parenting and religion collections.” —Booklist Part memoir, part cultural exploration, this book covers the author’s journey as she grows up in an evangelical Christian home, leaves religion behind as a young adult, and goes on to raise children in a family outside of religious belief. Maria Polonchek weaves a personal story with up-to-date studies and philosophic exploration of what it means to raise secular children in an otherwise religious world.

Understanding Religious Violence

“In this newly revised and expanded edition of a book first published 14 years ago, Selengut continues and expands the increasingly needed conversation on religion and violence. Praise for this new edition by Mark Juergensmeyer, arguably the expert on the subject, is testimony to its worth. . . . Selengut provides a holistic, up-to-date examination of religion and violence, a deadly combination. . . . Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates; general readers.” —CHOICE Revised throughout, the third edition features new material on violence in Buddhism and Hinduism, the rise of ISIS, “lone wolf terrorists,” and more. This up-to-date edition draws on a variety of disciplines to comprehend forms of religious violence both historically and in the present day. The third edition of Sacred Fury is an essential resource for understanding the connections between faith and violence.

Radical Skin, Moderate Masks

A Journey to Waco

By Yassir Morsi

By Clive Doyle With Catherine Wessinger and Matthew D. Wittmer

De-radicalising the Muslim and Racism in Post-racial Societies Radical Skin, Moderate Masks explores a voice trapped by the War on Terror. How can a Muslim speak about politics? And, in what tone can they argue? In today’s climate can they “talk back” without being defined as a moderate or radical? And, what do the conditions put on their political choices reveal about liberalism and its deep and historical relationship with racism? This timely work looks at ongoing debates and how they call for Muslims to engage in a “deradicalisation” of their voice and identities. The author takes his lessons from Fanon and uses them to make sense of his many readings of Said’s Orientalism. He reflects on the personal and scholarly difficulty of writing this very book. A messy autoethnography follows. It shows (rather than tells of) the felt demand to use a pleasing “Apollonian” liberalism. This approved language, however, erases a Muslim’s ability to talk about the “Dionysian” more Asiatic parts of their faith and politics. Yassir Morsi lectures in politics and philosophy at La Trobe University, Australia. He is a regular contributor to The Guardian.

A Journey to Waco presents what the Branch Davidians believed and introduces readers to the community’s members, including David Koresh. Clive Doyle is one of nine survivors of the Mount Carmel fire near Waco, Texas, which killed 76 Branch Davidians of all ages.

This book tells the story of Brandon Davies’s dismissal from Brigham Young University’s NCAA playoff basketball team to illustrate the thorny intersection of religion, race, and sport at BYU and beyond. The author analyzes the athletes dismissed through BYU’s honor code violations and suggests that they are disproportionately African American, which has troubling implications.

Rewriting the Ten Commandments for the Twenty-first Century

Black Athletes at BYU and Beyond

Tyler Perry is the most successful African-American filmmaker of his generation, garnering both accolades and controversies with each new film. In Tyler Perry’s America, Shayne Lee digs into eleven of Perry’s highest-grossing films to explore key themes of race, gender, class, and religion, and, ultimately, to discuss what Perry’s films reveal about contemporary African-American life.

When Race, Religion, and Sport Collide

“Lee is a sociologist, and his approach to the sociology—or is it economics?—in Tyler Perry’s films is 100 percent admirable: he writes that he ‘watched each movie no less than ten times, carefully coding and cataloguing themes, plots, and character development regarding their relation to pertinent socio-cultural themes.’ This is the first book-length study of Perry, and Lee is brilliant at perceiving clearly, not sentimentally, the role of religion. . . . Written in clear prose, this is a surprisingly important book, especially for those interested in the sociology of film. . . . Highly recommended. All readers.” —CHOICE

By Lex Bayer and John Figdor

“I was drawn to this book by its subtitle . . . This book functions best as a manual for chiseling out a summary of your own core beliefs. . . . Atheist Mind, Humanist Heart is sure to get people thinking and talking about ethics and why they believe what they believe.”—The Freethinker Atheist Mind, Humanist Heart asks an essential question for the 45 million Americans who self-identify as nonreligious: “So, you don’t believe in God; now what?” This question is increasingly important, as one-third of young adults under the age of thirty consider themselves nonreligious. With a scientific eye and an empathetic heart, the authors turn conventional perceptions about atheism on their head. They show that atheism need not be reactionary (against religion and God), but rather that it can offer a clear set of constructive principles to live by, which establish atheism as a positive worldview. Following a philosophical approach grounded in logic and evidence, Bayer and Figdor take readers on an inspiring journey to discover how to live a reasonable, ethical, and happy life without God. The readers are engaged at every step, encouraged to self-reflect and ultimately uncover their own set of personal beliefs.

Atheists in America

By David A. Williamson and George Yancey “A solid empirical study that will be the best basis for future research. Summing Up: Recommended. All academic levels/libraries.” —CHOICE “This study puts into context the historical conditions and the sociopolitical realities that have set the stage for the evolution of one of the most understudied and yet revealing minority groups in the contemporary United States. For an introduction and sociological picture of some of the most critical issues surrounding American atheists, begin here.” —Jesse M. Smith, University of Colorado at Boulder “David A. Williamson and George Yancey ably integrate the sociology of religion with political sociology in an insightful analysis of contemporary atheist Americans, a largely unknown and under-researched minority.” —Barry A. Kosmin, Institute for the Study of Secularism in Society & Culture, Trinity College In There is No God, the authors begin with a brief history of atheism to set the stage for a better understanding of contemporary American atheism. They then explore how the relationship between religious and atheistic ideologies has each attempted to discredit the other in different ways at different times and under very different social and political circumstances. Although atheists are a relatively small minority, atheists appear to be growing in number and in their willingness to be identified as atheists and to voice their non-belief. As those voices of atheism increase it is essential that we understand how and why those who are defined by such a simple term as “nonbelievers in the existence of God” should have such social and political influence. The authors successfully answer the broader question of the apparent polarization of the religious and non-religious dimensions of American society.

Beyond Physicalism

The Man Who Could Fly

NEW IN PAPERBACK

Edited by Edward F. Kelly, Adam Crabtree, and Paul Marshall

By Michael Grosso

A Practical and Spiritual Guide

Toward Reconciliation of Science and Spirituality

Most contemporary scientists and philosophers believe that reality is at bottom purely physical, and that human beings are nothing more than extremely complicated biological machines. On such views our everyday experiences of conscious decision-making, free will, and the self are illusory by-products of the grinding of our neural machinery. It follows that mind and personality are necessarily extinguished at death, and that there exists no deeper transpersonal or spiritual reality of any sort. Edward F. Kelly is a research professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia. Adam Crabtree is a psychotherapist in private practice and on the faculty of the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy in Toronto. Paul Marshall is an independent researcher with interests in mysticism, philosophy and psychology of religion, science-religion relations, and consciousness studies. 2015 • 634 pages 978-1-4422-3238-9 • $63.00 / £42.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-3240-2 • $59.50 / £39.95 • eBook

St. Joseph of Copertino began having mystical visions at the age of seven, but it was not until he began practicing his faith as a Franciscan priest that he realized the full potential of his mind’s power over his body—he was able to levitate. Throughout his priesthood St. Joseph became famous for frequent levitations that were observed on hundreds of occasions and by thousands of witnesses, including many skeptics. Michael Grosso delves into the biography of the saint to explore the many strange phenomena that surrounded his life and develops potential physical explanations for some of the most astounding manifestations of his religious ecstasy. Grosso draws upon contemporary explorations into cognition, the relationship between the human mind and body, and the scientifically recorded effects of meditation and other transcendent practices to reveal the implications of St. Joseph’s experiences and abilities. Michael Grosso has taught humanities and philosophy at Marymount Manhattan College, City University of New York, and New Jersey City University. 2016 • 264 pages 978-1-4422-5672-9 • $38.00 / £24.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-5673-6 • $36.00 / £24.95 • eBook

Developing Ecological Consciousness The End of Separation

Infinite Awareness

Second Edition By Christopher Uhl

Infinite Awareness pairs Woollacott’s research as a neuroscientist with her self-revelations about the mind’s spiritual power. Between the scientific and spiritual worlds, she breaks open the definition of human consciousness to investigate the existence of a non-physical and infinitely powerful mind. Marjorie Hines Woollacott has been a neuroscience professor at the University of Oregon for more than three decades and a meditator for almost four.

Developing Ecological Consciousness is a marked departure from those standard environmental studies texts strongly focused on actions that humans need to take to fix the environment. Christopher Uhl explores the path to living in harmony with Earth and believes it begins not with fixing the environment but with fixing ourselves—specifically our perceptions about Earth.

She covers everything from the realization that one’s illness is incurable to the memorial service and presents positive suggestions for disclosing the imminent death to loved ones and how to prepare spiritually (not necessarily espousing religion) for the end. . . .

Beyond the Threshold

Afterlife Beliefs and Experiences in World Religions Second Edition By Christopher M. Moreman

“This is a revised and expanded edition of Christopher Moreman’s book on afterlife beliefs. It is based on wide-ranging research into a topic of key importance to the religions of the world. It is both accessible and scholarly. Moreman’s discussion of controversial issues is fair, balanced, and well informed. The book makes a major contribution to academic understanding and establishes Moreman as a leading authority in this area.” —Paul Badham, emeritus, University of Wales

The Myth of an Afterlife

The Case against Life After Death By Michael Martin and Keith Augustine

“This is a hugely needed book. It addresses profound questions that are too seldom answered from a naturalistic point of view and answers them authoritatively yet surprisingly accessibly. In view of its scope and comprehensiveness—and especially because critical books on the afterlife have been so rare—the release of The Myth of an Afterlife is a noteworthy publishing event.” —Free Inquiry

“Beyond the Threshold is the one textbook I know of that not only introduces beliefs about the afterlife, but also examines reported experiences of the afterlife. Students love the chapters on ghosts, séances, and near-death experiences. But they benefit from the engaging discussions of the major religious views as well. The updates and new glossaries make a great book even better.” —Rebecca Moore, emerita, San Diego State University Christopher M. Moreman offers an introduction to afterlife beliefs in ancient cultures, which are essential to understanding the roots of many modern ideas about death. He examines the folklore and doctrines of major world religions, including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Chinese religions, and several African traditions. He also discusses psychic phenomena across traditions, such as mediums, near-death and out-of-body experiences, and pastlife memories. While ultimately the afterlife remains unknowable, the second edition of this unique, in-depth exploration of both beliefs and experiences can help readers reach their own understanding of the afterlife and how to live.

Nealon and Searls Giroux describe key concepts and illuminate each with an engaging inquiry that asks students to consider deeper and deeper questions. Written in students’ own idiom, and drawing its examples from the social world, literature, popular culture, and advertising, The Theory Toolbox offers students the language and opportunity to theorize rather than positioning them to respond to theory as a reified history of various schools of thought. Clear and engaging, it avoids facile description, inviting students to struggle with ideas and the world by virtue of the book’s relentless challenge to common assumptions and its appeal to common sense. Updated throughout, the second edition of The Theory Toolbox includes a discussion of new media, as well as two new chapters on life and nature. Jeffrey T.

Encyclopedia of Martin Luther and the Reformation

Edited by Mark A. Lamport Introduction by Philip Jenkins Foreword by Katalina Tahaafe-Williams Afterwords by Justin Welby, Dana L. Robert, David Maxwell, Paul Freston, Fenggang Yang, and Graham Kings

The rapid growth of Christianity in the global south is not just a demographic shift—it is also transforming the faith itself. The Encyclopedia of Christianity in the Global South traces both the history and the contemporary themes of Christianity in more than 150 countries and regions. Compiled by a global team of authors and editors, this 2-volume reference work includes maps, images, and a detailed timeline of key events. Mark Lamport is a graduate professor at theological schools in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Virginia, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Portugal. He is editor of the Encyclopedia of Martin Luther and the Reformation (2 volumes), the Encyclopedia of Christianity in the United States (5 volumes), and the Encyclopedia of Christian Education (3 volumes).

Edited by Mark A. Lamport Foreword by Bruce Gordon Introduction by Martin E. Marty

“There is nothing quite like this volume. Besides the A-list contributors, it explores aspects of Luther and the Reformation that are sometimes left out, and it especially displays the relevance of Luther for a world in which his spiritual heirs are predominantly in the Global South. While an encyclopedia, this work is also a pageturner for anyone interested in knowing more about why the Reformation happened, what its emphases are, and what it means for us today as we celebrate its five hundredth anniversary.” —Michael S. Horton, Westminster Seminary California “Martin Luther ranks with Augustine as a man whose legacy in the Christian world is both vast and enduring. Adored by many and reviled by some, Luther leaves no one indifferent, and his ideas continue to bear fruit in the church today. An encyclopedia is just what is needed to guide us through this dense forest of tall trees and thick undergrowth, and this volume fits the bill admirably. It will be a standard reference work for years to come and help the next generation shape its own approach to a man whose life and work changed the course of history.” —Gerald Bray, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University The Encyclopedia of Martin Luther and the Reformation is a comprehensive global study of the life and work of Martin Luther and the movements that followed him— in history and through today. Organized by a stellar advisory board of Luther and Reformation scholars, the encyclopedia features nearly five hundred entries that examine Luther’s life and impact worldwide. The two-volume set provides overviews of basics such as the 95 Theses as well as more complex topics such as reformational distinctions.

Encyclopedia of Christianity in the United States Edited by George Thomas Kurian and Mark A. Lamport Foreword by Martin E. Marty

“A superb set that will appeal to both researchers and general readers interested in religion or history. Suitable for both academic and public libraries. ” —Library Journal, Starred Review “A marvelous new five-volume reference work... containing contributions from nearly 500 scholars, provides us with an ‘Abbey to Zwemer’ resource on people, denominations, and movements. This 2800-page publication...will serve ministers and students well for a decade or more.” —Christianity Today From the Founding Fathers through the present, Christianity has exercised powerful influence in the United States—from its role in shaping politics and social institutions to its hand in inspiring art and culture. The Encyclopedia of Christianity in the United States outlines the myriad roles Christianity has played and continues to play. This masterful five-volume reference work includes biographies of major figures in the Christian church in the United States, influential religious documents and Supreme Court decisions, and information on theology and theologians, denominations, faith-based organizations, immigration, art—from decorative arts and film to music and literature—evangelism and crusades, the significant role of women, racial issues, civil religion, and more.

The World Almanac of Islamism 2017 By American Foreign Policy Council

Patristic and Medieval Atonement Theory A Guide to Research By Junius Johnson

Now in its third edition, The World Almanac of Islamism is the first comprehensive reference work to detail the current activities of radical Islamist movements worldwide. The contributions, written by subject experts, provide up-to-date assessments on the contemporary Islamist threat in all countries and regions where it exists. Each country study will include valuable metrics for gauging the advance or decline of Islamism. In places where Islamists are not in power, these include year-on-year comparisons of the number of terrorist attacks that have taken place, the level of popular support being received by radical religious organizations and political parties, and applicable government responses to these trends, if any. In places where they are in power, metrics encompass relevant changes to domestic human rights practices and social conditions, foreign policy rhetoric and action, and the overall stability of the state. For over 25 years, the American Foreign Policy Council (AFPC) has played an essential role in U.S. foreign policy debate. AFPC is widely recognized as a source of timely, insightful analysis and serves as a valuable resource to officials in the highest levels of government.

“Johnson’s project is ambitious, and his methodology commendable. . . . I expect that anybody with an interest in Christian theology will be enthusiastic about his promising new title, especially those who consider the patristic and medieval periods as the essential starting place for understanding the development of the Christian doctrine of atonement.” —Reading Religion Series: Illuminations: Guides to Research in Religion 2016 • 222 pages 978-0-8108-8434-2 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-0-8108-8435-9 • $90.00 / £60.00 • eBook

By Tim Shapiro “A distinguished scholar of musical instruments, Montagu combines, in his inimitable way, minutely researched scholarship with personal anecdotes and humor. Only he could have written this volume on the shofar, the ancient instrument used in Jewish religious practices. . . . This little book will become ‘the’ book on the shofar.

“If you are looking for a way to engage your congregation in living its mission and addressing everincreasing demands, then How Your Congregation Learns is the resource you need. Tim Shapiro provides a unique and much-needed understanding of how to transform the congregation into a learning community ready to take on new initiatives. How Your Congregation Learns provides a practical process—with lots of congregational examples—that will give you the knowledge and confidence to facilitate change and create innovation.” —John Roberto, president, LifelongFaith Associates “In many congregations, the best ideas die on the vine or fizzle after the first try, because they exceed current capacity. But what if the daunting goal is to actually generate new capacity for effective mission, today and tomorrow? ‘Learning to learn’ is the key to unlocking new strengths in congregations—even the smallest ones—and this book reveals how this powerful and sacred process actually works.” —Alice Mann, Congregational Consulting Group Congregations face many kinds of challenges. Some are mundane: the roof leaks; the parking lot needs repaving; the microphones don’t work well. Some tests are transcendent: How should lives be honored? What is God calling the congregation to do and be? How can generosity be taught? Throughout life people face challenges for which they are not prepared—the death of a parent, a new job offer, making a decision about where to live. So it goes that congregational leaders face challenges that are just beyond the grasp of their abilities. This book addresses the just-beyond-the-grasp challenges and shows how real congregations can learn from them. Tim Shapiro is president of the Indianapolis Center for Congregations. He is a Presbyterian Church (USA) minister who has served congregations in Indiana and Ohio. He is the co-author of Holy Places.

How People of Faith Must Work for Change By Jim Antal Foreword by Bill McKibben

Climate Church, Climate World argues that climate change is the greatest moral challenge humanity has ever faced. Hunger, refugees, poverty, inequality, deadly viruses, war—climate change multiplies all forms of global social injustice. Environmental leader Reverend Jim Antal presents a compelling case that it’s time for the church to meet this moral challenge, just as the church addressed previous moral challenges. Antal calls for the church to embrace a new vocation so that future generations might live in harmony with God’s creation. After describing how we have created the dangers our planet now faces, Antal urges the church to embrace a new vocation, one focused on collective salvation and an expanded understanding of the Golden Rule (Golden Rule 2.0). He suggests ways people of faith can reorient what they prize through new approaches to worship, preaching, witnessing, and other spiritual practices that honor creation and cultivate hope. Jim Antal is the national spokesperson on climate change for the United Church of Christ. The founder of New England Regional Environmental Ministries, he speaks nationally about the importance of addressing climate change and how people of faith can take action.

“Thomas Kirkpatrick’s book could not be more timely. The book is targeted for communication in the church but is relevant in many other settings. I was immediately engaged because the descriptions of poor communication were so accurate and the prescriptions for healthy communication were so helpful. The chapters immediately invite readers in and are profound and practical. It is a book that should be required reading in nearly every congregation.” —Rev.

Governance and Ministry

Memories, Hopes, and Conversations

Rethinking Board Leadership

Second Edition By Mark Lau Branson

“For years, I have been recommending to congregational leaders that they read Dan Hotchkiss’ outstanding book Governance and Ministry. . . . Having read the second edition of this classic book, I am convinced that it will have a similar level of success in helping pastors and church members alike understand their roles as well as the difference between governing and doing ministry.”—The Presbyterian Outlook Governance and Ministry has proven to be an indispensable guide for leaders and clergy on how to work together to lead congregations. In this second edition, veteran congregational consultant and minister Dan Hotchkiss updates the book to reflect today’s church and synagogue landscape and shares practical insights based on his work with readers of the first edition. Dan Hotchkiss writes, consults, and speaks widely for congregations and other nonprofits.

If there’s one thing upon which contemporary pastors and their congregations can agree, it’s that the practice of ministry in our rapidly changing, increasingly diverse context is a complicated business. Varieties of Gifts highlights the stories of ministers who thrive in this environment, offering inspiration to readers—ministers, seminary students, and people who care for them—on engaging their own multiplicity to build healthy, sustainable ministry. Cynthia G. Lindner is director of ministry studies and clinical faculty for preaching and pastoral care at the University of Chicago Divinity School. She is also a pastoral psychotherapist at the Center for Religion and Psychotherapy.

By Hayim Herring and Terri Martinson Elton “Drawing on their wide reading on and qualitative analysis of interview and social media data gathered from fifteen carefully chosen Jewish and Lutheran organizations, the authors identify wise practices and provide accessible tools for communities seeking to flourish during this time of change. . . . This book will be most valuable to pastors, priests, rabbis, religious non-profit executives, and the leadership teams with which they work. It provides theologically sensitive and socially savvy insight into the ancient and modern roles of religious leaders and communities.” —Anglican Theological Review This book shares emerging practices for leading and organizing congregations and nonprofits in our increasingly networked lives. Drawing on studies of congregations across denominations, and nonprofits with historic ties to faith communities, Hayim Herring and Terri Elton share practical, research-based guidance for how these organizations can more deeply engage with their communities and advance their impact in a socially connected world. Hayim Herring is CEO of HayimHerring.com. He has served as executive director of a national congregational leadership foundation, senior rabbi of a prominent congregation, and assistant director of a Jewish federation.

“We need Cynthia Lindner’s study of 21stcentury pastors, which demonstrates the value of pastors drawing from multiple internal energy sources in order to exercise their gifts in multiple forms. . . . Her storytellers—female and male, gay and straight, old and young, African American and Caucasian—talk straightforwardly about the challenges of contemporary ministry and the need for multiple strategies. . . .These thousand eyes represent the multiplicity that is necessary to the pastoral life. They also remind us that in ministry we are never alone. . . .Varieties of Gifts testifies that God is not done with the church.” —The Christian Century

Becoming a Blessed Church

Forming a Church of Spiritual Purpose, Presence, and Power “Many churches today are struggling to discern a hopeful future. The process of Appreciative Inquiry invites a community to identify what is most lifegiving in its past and carry it forward. There is no better book on this topic than Mark Lau Branson’s Memories, Hopes, and Conversations. This expanded edition is full of concrete stories of actual churches, biblical and theological insights, and even agendas and scripts to make the process easy and accessible. This is one of the most helpful books I know of for church leadership today.” —Dwight Zscheile, Luther Seminary

Memories, Hopes, and Conversations is a powerful resource that introduces readers to Appreciative Inquiry—a transformational organizational change process that focuses on the strengths of a group. The second edition has been revised and expanded throughout, featuring important new materials on leadership and missional frameworks, as well as five chapters from pastors describing the transformational experiences of their churches and neighbors using Appreciative Inquiry. The book offers a dynamic overview of the Appreciative Inquiry process, real stories of change in action, and a wealth of practical resources for churches to pursue this journey of appreciation, imagination, and change.

Second Edition By N. Graham Standish Foreword by E. Stanley Ott

Spiritual Discovery

A Method for Discernment in Small Groups and Congregations “I am deeply grateful to Graham Standish for his thoughtful, practical, and inspiring masterpiece, Becoming a Blessed Church. Now, if anyone asks me to recommend one book that a church’s leaders could read together to help them envision a better, more vibrant future, this is where I’ll point them. He presents a vision that is accessible to and legitimate for churches across the spectrum because it gets beyond old polarities—evangelical, mainline, traditional, contemporary, etc.—and leads to a better, richer, more fruitful path.” —Brian McLaren, speaker, pastor, and author of The Road We Make by Walking

Pastor and author N. Graham Standish shares the story of Calvin Presbyterian Church in Zelienople, Pennsylvania, and its journey to become a spiritually deep congregation, one that is inwardly and outwardly healthy: spiritually, psychologically, physically, and relationally. This second edition includes three new practical chapters that answer the questions the author is most frequently asked: how to effectively run a group discernment practice, how to create an effective small group program, and how to set a church vision in a new direction that actually works. N. Graham Standish is pastor of Calvin Presbyterian Church in Zelienople, Pennsylvania.

By Rev. Catherine C. Tran and Rev. Sandra Hughes Boyd Foreword by Jane E. Vennard

“Tran and Boyd have translated the spiritual direction work of Jane Vennard into a powerful model for group discernment and individual transformation.

Catherine C. Tran is Episcopal co-pastor at Grace Church in Buena Vista, Colorado. She also has a spiritual direction practice and leads Spiritual Discovery Groups in the Denver area.

“Doing the Math of Mission is not for the faint of heart but the message is clear. The numbers show North American protestant denominations declining. For any pastor or leader, this is a painful but necessary book that can guide our churches toward a better future.” —The Farmville Herald

“This outstanding resource explores appropriate boundaries in ministry, boundaries that ‘promote and contribute to health . . . and excellence in ministry,’ that is, the health and well-being of both the minister and his family as well as that of the community. The authors contend that ‘successful boundaries are a team effort,’ involving both the clergy and the community of faith. This book is an important read for priests, presvyteres and leaders in our parishes.” —Clergy Couple Care

Imagine an educator in this cynical age who talks about God, heroism, and self-sacrifice. Vance Wilson is a voice crying in the wilderness of an age in which young people are starved for meaning and thirsty for purpose. This is a book every parent and teacher should read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest.” —F. Washington Jarvis, Roxbury Latin School and Yale Divinity School In vibrant prose, Z. Vance Wilson offers insight to anyone, whether parent or teacher, responsible for guiding children on the joyous, difficult, and ever-unpredictable path to becoming their best selves intellectually, socially, morally, and spiritually. With judiciousness, good will, and humor (all sharpened as head of a leading boys’ school in Washington, D.C.), Wilson puts forth a clear set of principles, both practical and idealistic, for adults directing children toward wisdom and joy. An award-winning novelist, Wilson draws on colorful tales from his childhood in the American south, rousing episodes in history, and a remarkable assortment of poems, novels, and biblical readings, to illustrate the challenges children face and to illuminate the ways adults may best reach and teach them. Z. Vance Wilson has served as headmaster of St. Albans School in Washington, D.C. since 1999. 2017 • 176 pages 978-1-4758-2776-7 • $25.00 / £15.95 • Hardback 978-1-4758-2777-4 • $24.99 / £15.95 • eBook

“For mothers of black sons, the basic concerns of motherhood are compounded by worry about whether their sons will even survive to manhood. This collection gives voice to that concern as women (mostly, though not all black) from a range of ages, religions, and nationalities write of their hopes and fears for their black sons. . . . This collection offers powerful and thoughtful reflections on the impact of racism on black males and the women who witness and offer as much love and protection as they can.” —Booklist, Starred Review Our Black Sons Matter is a powerful collection of original essays, letters, and poems that addresses both the deep joys and the very real challenges of raising black boys today. From Trayvon Martin to Tamir Rice, the list of young black men who have suffered racial violence continues to grow. Young black people also deal with profound stereotypes and structural barriers. And yet, young black men are often paradoxically revered as icons of cultural cool. Our Black Sons Matter features contributions from women across the racial spectrum who are raising or have raised black sons—whether biologically their sons or not. 2017 • 240 pages 978-1-4422-6911-8 • $34.00 / £23.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-6912-5 • $32.00 / £22.95 • eBook

2016 Sue DeWine Distinguished Award for a Scholarly Book from the Applied Communication Division of NCA

“Foot’s honest and critical attention throughout her book to the visible and the not-so-visible challenges to cross-sector collaboration against human trafficking is a refreshingly clever approach to partnership-building within this growing field. . . . Foot makes a strong case for an achievable and worthwhile way forward in the anti-trafficking arena in the United States and beyond.” —Slavery Today: A Multidisciplinary Journal of Human Trafficking Solutions In the fight against human trafficking, cross-sector collaboration is vital—but often, systemic tensions undermine the effectiveness of these alliances. Kirsten Foot explores the most potent sources of such difficulties, offering insights and tools that leaders in every sector can use to re-think the power dynamics of partnering. Kirsten Foot is professor of communication at the University of Washington. 2016 • 230 pages 978-1-4422-4693-5 • $38.00 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-4692-8 • $75.00 / £49.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-4694-2 • $36.00 / £24.95 • eBook
