  • Neighboring Faiths Third Edition

    $65.00

    World religions are not merely abstract sets of doctrinal beliefs. They are embodied worldviews and practices lived out by real people around us. Encounters with these neighboring faiths often challenge our own beliefs and traditions, making us think more deeply about our faith commitments.

    For all who want to understand the religious faiths of their neighbors, Winfried Corduan offers an introduction to the religions of the world. This classic text covers major as well as lesser known religions, including Judaism, Islam, Zoroastrianism, African traditional religions, Native American religion, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Baha’i, Chinese popular religion, and Shinto and Japanese religions.

    Neighboring Faiths emphasizes not just formal religious teachings but also how each religion is practiced in daily life. Dozens of photographs, charts, and maps help illustrate how the faiths have developed and how they’re lived out today. Corduan offers specific insights into what to expect from encounters with adherents of each religion and suggestions for how Christians can engage them in constructive dialogue. Each chapter offers lists of key points, ideas for term papers, and recommended resources to help students, instructors, and small groups go deeper.

    This third edition has been updated and revised throughout. The chapter on militant Islam is significantly revised to address more recent events and issues, and questions for reflection and discussion have been added to each chapter.

    Neighboring Faiths is an indispensable guide for Christians seeking an informed, empathetic perspective on different religions and the people who practice them.

  • Religions On Trial

    $18.00

    People today encounter a dizzying array of religious options.

    We might consider mystical faiths like Buddhism and Hinduism, historical religions like Islam and Mormonism, or more nebulous modern expressions of being spiritual but not religious or religious but not spiritual. How do we know what is true? Is one faith just as good as another?

    Trial lawyer Mark Lanier presents the claims made by the world’s great religions, discusses their histories, and cross-examines their witnesses (their scriptures and traditions) to determine whether their claims are worthy of belief. With his keen legal mind and methodical style, he provides a careful comparative study, highlighting key truths he finds in each religion even as he offers critiques. Treating each perspective on its own terms and weighing the worldviews for consistency and livability, Lanier assesses evidence for and against belief systems with criteria for what constitutes sufficient proof.

    Believers and unbelievers alike will find here perceptive insights into how we can make sense of competing religious claims and what difference it makes for our own lives.

  • Human Rights In Islam The Uprisings In North Africa

    $10.00

    A National Library Of South Africa Title

    The uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya resulted from decades of oppressive, subservient and destructive iron fist rule. From colonialism to homogeneous rulers, the majority of Muslim population countries witnessed no relief of suffering under these rulers.The Muslim dictators grossly defamed the comprehensive model Islam offers for all aspects of life until the dissenting voice braved the military rule and confronted the dictators’ status quo.The book chronicles the history and events that finally led to the departure of Ben Ali, Mubarak, and Qaddafi. The book also offers a discussion on the discourse on the various factors that contributed to the final moments of the dictator’s departure.Islamic Human Rights documents, with the Qur’an as the point of departure not only look to the individual but also provide guidelines and caution to rulers. It is a religion that provides guidelines to a complete way of life, incorporating all social stratification of a population. Reform strategies lie in Islamic academia and intelligentsia. Continuous research will enable Muslim populations to integrate and challenge modernity in an all- embracing productive and effective partnership agreement.Human Rights in Islam – the Uprisings in North Africa, provides a relevant reference to both students and the general public interested in the protection of human dignity and the violations of Human Rights in Islam.

  • From Cairo To Christ

    $16.00

    16 Chapters

    Additional Info
    If I were to become a Christian, it would mean not only changing my religion but changing my whole identity, and bringing shame upon my family. My whole family is Muslim, and my society and culture were Muslim. . . . Changing from Islam to Christianity would mess up my life forever. So writes Abu Atallah, who grew up in Cairo as an ordinary Egyptian Muslim. He was deeply embedded in his family, religion, and country. For a time he was part of the Muslim Brotherhood. But as he came of age, he began to encounter people who followed a different way, who called themselves Christians. And a radically new life became possible-at great cost and risk, yet with great joy. From Cairo to Christ is the remarkable story of how one Muslim man was drawn to the Christian faith, and how he later became an ambassador for Christ with a ministry in the Muslim world. Atallah has personally helped hundreds of Muslims come to Christ. This narrative sheds light on Islamic cultural dynamics and what Westerners should know about Muslim contexts. Despite the challenges facing believers from Muslim backgrounds, God is bringing surprising numbers of Muslims to Christ. Discover how the good news of Jesus transforms lives in Muslim communities around the world.

  • Chosen : Reading The Bible Amid The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

    $18.00

    “The conflict is only ‘seemingly’ beyond solution, because all historical-political problems have solutions, if there is enough courage, honesty, and steadfastness.”

    In Chosen?, Walter Brueggemann explores the situation in modern-day Israel that raises questions for many Christians who are easily confused when reading biblical accounts of God’s saving actions with the Israelites. Are modern Israeli citizens the descendants of the Israelites in the Bible whom God called chosen? Was the promise of land to Moses permanent and irrevocable? What about others living in the promised land? How should we read the Bible in light of the modern situation? Who are the Zionists, and what do they say?

    In four chapters, Brueggemann addresses the main questions people have with regards to what the Bible has to say about this ongoing issue. A question-and-answer section with Walter Brueggemann, a glossary of terms, study guide, and guidelines for respectful dialogue are also included. The reader will get answers to their key questions about how to understand God’s promises to the biblical people often called Israel and the conflict between Israel and Palestine today.

  • Islam And Terrorism Revised And Updated Edition (Revised)

    $14.99

    Gabriel says that terrorists are practicing Islam just as Muhammad intended. As a child, Gabriel grew up in a Muslim family in Egypt and was heavily indoctrinated. By the age of twelve he had memorized the entire Qur’an. He went on to become a top student at the most prestigious Islamic university in the world, Al-Azhar in Cairo, Egypt. As a student and professor of Islamic history, he rubbed shoulders with those who are at the forefront of propagating the tenets of Islamic terrorism. He actually took classes with Sheik Umar Abd al-Rahman, who was convicted of masterminding the 1993 World Trade Center bomb attack and is now in prison. In this eye-opening book Gabriel explains:
    *How Islam was influenced by the warlike Arabian culture of the 7th century
    *Atrocities committed by Muhammad in the name of Allah
    *The story of the Egyptian student who came to study education in America and went on to write the first handbook of terrorism in the twentieth century
    *The prominence of jihad (war against infidels) in Islamic theology
    *How Egyptian fundamentalists murdered and robbed Christians to raise funds for terrorism
    *The difference between a moderate Muslim and a fundamentalist Muslim

    For the readers of this book, the motive behind Islamic world activity will no longer be a mystery. Each action is rooted in the philosophy of Islam. Now both the Christian and the political world must decide how to react to Muhammad’s revelation.

  • Freemasonry Invisible Cult

    $16.99

    Jack Harris, a former “Worshipful Master” of a Masonic lodge, authoritatively speaks about one of the most deceptive cults in the United States today. Freemasonry is a false religion, teaching that men can approach God not through the finished work of Jesus Christ but through their own abilities. This secret organization has entangled ministers, elders, deacons, trustees, Sunday school teachers, and people all over the world in a web of lies and satanic rituals–all of which are veiled with the language of the Bible! Discover how you can share the light of Christ with those living in the darkness of Freemasonry and how they can be set free from its deception.

    But after reading and studying various Masonic authors, he realized that Freemasonry considers Jesus Christ to be no greater than Moses, Elijah, Mohammed, or Buddha. Needless to say, his faith and trust in the teachings of Masonry were shaken.

    He began to converse with pastors, read the Bible, pray, and debate with other Masons about who Jesus Christ is and where absolute truth is to be found. This went on for two years, until one night he decided to watch a Billy Graham crusade on TV.

    As he listened to Reverend Graham preach, he finally saw himself as God saw him, a sinner without hope and on his way to hell. That night he got on his knees and asked Jesus Christ to forgive him for his sins, come into his life, save him, and be the Lord of his life. At that moment, he accepted the God of the Universe, Jesus Christ, and rejected the god of Freemasonry. He was set free by the One who is the Truth, Jesus Christ. The shackles of Masonic lies were broken.

  • What Every Christian Needs To Know About Passover

    $19.99

    Understand the Last Supper Jesus shared with his disciples and its ancient roots in the Jewish Passover, and discover what it can mean to a Christian celebration of Communion and Easter today.

    The Passover was celebrated by Jesus and the disciples the last time they were together. Now popular speaker and writer Rabbi Evan Moffic brings an understanding to the Last Supper that will forever change how Christians celebrate Communion and prepare for Easter. Beginning with the Hebrew Bible and Jewish history, Rabbi Moffic shows how these inform the roots of Christianity as he weaves together history, theology, Jewish practice and observances. Then he provides the background and resources for Christians seeking to experience an authentic Jewish Passover Seder and integrate it into their own preparation for Easter. Rabbi Moffic brings an informed and ancient perspective, explaining and bringing to life the source of so many of our modern Christian practices.

    By exploring and explaining the ritual and story surrounding the Jewish Passover, Rabbi Moffic shares with Christians the wisdom and inspiration of the Hebrew Bible-what Christians call the Old Testament-in a way that increases appreciation and understanding of the culture in which Jesus lived and taught. For contemporary Christians desiring to enrich their understanding of the faith they practice today, this book offers deeper understanding of their spiritual heritage shared with Judaism.

  • Cross And The Cow Belt Of India

    $17.95

    The “Cow Belt” of India, so called because the majority of the people living in this region consider the cow to be sacred, stretches across the central plains of India. This land, the birthplace of Hinduism, is one rich in history but long ruled by superstition, false idols, the caste system, and the pursuit of nirvana. Through the arrivals of St. Thomas at the coast of Kerala in A.D. 52, Vasco da Gama on the west coast of India in 1498, and William Carey, the father of the modern missionary movement, in Bengal in 1793, God opened the door for Christianity to enter into the country, but yet even today, many in India’s heartland still worship a myriad of other gods and goddesses. Given Christianity’s past inroads, why has it not been able to successfully penetrate this region? And now that the Indian government has closed the country to foreign missionaries, how can native Christians fulfill Christ’s commission to preach the gospel to all people-including those in the Cow Belt? In “The Cross and the Cow Belt of India,” author Paul Pathickal, who lived in the region for fifteen years, seeks to answer these questions by surveying India’s unique history, religious system, and cultural distinctions-factors that make the Cow Belt one of the most challenging but ripe mission fields in the world today. In particular, he explores:
    * The origins of orthodox Hinduism
    * The Hindu scriptures
    * The many gods in Hindu worship
    * The doctrine of karma and rebirth
    * The caste system and politics in India

    The people of the Cow Belt can be reached for Christ, and in this book you will discover proven and practical strategies for how this can be accomplished. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in Indian missions!

  • Paul Within Judaism

    $44.00

    In these chapters, a group of renowned international scholars seek to describe Paul and his work from “within Judaism,” rather than on the assumption, still current after thirty years of the “New Perspective,” that in practice Paul left behind aspects of Jewish living after his discovery of Jesus as Christ (Messiah). After an introduction that surveys recent study of Paul and highlights the centrality of questions about Paul’s Judaism, chapters explore the implications of reading Paul’s instructions as aimed at Christ-following non-Jews, teaching them how to live in ways consistent with Judaism while remaining non-Jews. The contributors take different methodological points of departure: historical, ideological-critical, gender-critical, and empire-critical, and examine issues of terminology and of interfaith relations. Surprising common ground among the contributors presents a coherent alternative to the “New Perspective.” The volume concludes with a critical evaluation of the Paul within Judaism perspective by Terence L. Donaldson, a well-known voice representative of the best insights of the New Perspective.

    Additional Info
    All religions and worldviews seek to answer the fundamental questions of human existence: Why am I here? What does it mean to be human? Why is there evil in the world and how do we deal with it? But not every worldview places equal emphasis on each issue. The main worldviews each tend to stress a different central question. Secular humanism focuses on: What is the inherent value of human beings? Pantheism emphasizes: How do we escape suffering? Islam’s main concern is: How is God great? Abdu Murray digs deeply into these three representatives of major worldviews of our day: atheism, pantheism and theism. This lawyer and former Muslim brings compassion, understanding and clarity to his analysis, comparing the answers of each view to the central message of Christianity.

  • Comprehensive Approach Yet One Message

    $16.99

    Dr. Berhanu Arsse presents thorough research and careful consideration on proven methods of effective Christian evangelism to Muslims in the United States. This is a rich resource for any Christian who has not been able to find the right techniques for reaching those that come from or are in a religion and culture so distinct from their own. This book feels as though it is the forerunner of a new class of thought that will reshape the current of the Gospel from how it is currently spread. Interesting and unique subject matter – the researched topic is far from ubiquitous in bookstores, which well set it apart from other religious non-fiction. It is also intriguing to consider that so much thought and purposefulness has been dedicated to evangelizing amongst Muslims when many probably (and some perhaps without realizing it) feel that the religion and culture are so strong it cannot be penetrated. Due to its genesis from research, the book is extremely well organized and meticulously documented. The value of paying for this book will be completely obvious to any person who would be interested to learn the information contained within. It is of a very high caliber and will be regarded as such due to the author’s diligence and hard work in presenting this book. It is excellent that the author explains how evangelism and social transformation became separated and why they belong together. This is central to Christians fully emulating the Christ they claim and is not nearly discussed as much as should be. Dr. Berhanu Arsse is a founder and Executive Director of Caris International. A certified teacher, he holds undergraduate degree from Ethiopia, M.A. in cross cultural Ministry from Dallas Theological Seminary in Dallas, TX, and earned Ph.D. in Missiology from Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN. Dr. Arsse speaks in Universities, mission seminars and conferences. He is now a pastor, and coordinates multi-nation evangelistic outreach. Dr. Arsse, his wife Ayantu, and their son Kayo live in Columbus, OH.

  • Historical Dictionary Of The Friends Quakers

    $155.00

    The modern reputation of Friends in the United States and Europe is grounded in the relief work they have conducted in the presence and aftermath of war. Friends (also known as Quakers) have coordinated the feeding and evacuation of children from war zones around the world. They have helped displaced persons without regard to politics. They have engaged in the relief of suffering in places as far-flung as Ireland, France, Germany, Ethiopia, Egypt, China, and India. Their work was acknowledged with the award of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1947 to the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and the Friends Service Council of Great Britain. More often, however, Quakers live, worship, and work quietly, without seeking public attention for themselves. Now, the Friends are a truly worldwide body and are recognized by their Christ-centered message of integrity and simplicity, as well as their nonviolent stance and affirmation of the belief that all people-women as well as men-may be called to the ministry.

    The expanded second edition of the Historical Dictionary of the Friends (Quakers) relates the history of the Friends through a chronology, an introductory essay, an extensive bibliography, and over 700 cross-referenced dictionary entries on concepts, significant figures, places, activities, and periods. This book is an excellent access point for scholars and students, who will find the overviews and sources for further research provided by this book to be enormously helpful.

  • Stories That Feed Your Soul

    $21.00

    Bestselling author and modern-day prophet Tony Campolo believes that one of the best ways to tell the grand story of the gospel is to tell stories of everyday life where God is at work…just as Jesus did during his earthly ministry. This collection of stories from Tony’s lifelong friendships and international travels allow readers to “overhear” the gospel at work around the world. Set around Romans 8, the stories center on eight gospel themes: freedom of condemnation, new life in Christ, intimacy with God, the call to rescue creation, living with hope, praying in the Spirit, God’s plans for us, and the assurance we need. Whether humorous or poignant, each one is an unforgettable echo of God at work around us and within us.

  • Tactics Of Islam

    $13.49

    In the past, the Ottoman Empire could not defeat the West by the sword, so now Fethullah Gulen’s community systematically employs very different tactics to bring the West under Islamic rule. For profoundly anti-democratic goals they use America’s democratic values-freedom of speech, political correctness, tolerance, and multiculturalism-as tools for disseminating Gulen’s ideology.

    “You move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence until you reach all the power centers…until the conditions are ripe… If you do something prematurely, the world will crush our heads. The time is not yet right. You must wait until such time as you have gotten all the state power, until you have brought to your side all the power of the constitutional institutions in Turkey… The work to be done is in confronting the world. Now, I have expressed my feelings and thoughts to you all-in confidence…trusting your loyalty and secrecy.”

    All too often, those who attend church or synagogue find themselves bored or baffled by the service. Their predominant thought is how slowly the time ticks by-and that the service never seems to end.
    Written for laypeople and clergy of any denomination, The Art of Public Prayer examines how and why religious ritual works-and why it often doesn’t work.
    The Art of Public Prayer uses psychology, social science, theology and common sense to explain the key roles played by ritual, symbolism, liturgy and song in services. Each chapter features “conversation points” designed to get you and your faith community thinking and talking about your own worship patterns-where they succeed, and where they need improvement.
    The Art of Public Prayer can help you and your fellow congregants revitalize your worship service by allowing you to organize and direct your own worship, making it a meaningful and fulfilling part of your life.

  • Early Judaism : Texts And Documents On Faith And Piety

    $34.00

    Jewish writings from the period of Second Temple present a rich and potentially overwhelming variety of first-hand materials. George W. E. Nickelsburg and Michael E. Stone, experts on this formative period, have updated their classic sourcebook on Jewish beliefs and practices to take into account current thinking about the sources and to include new documents, including texts from Qumran not available in the first edition, in a brilliantly organized synthesis.

    Included are chapters on Jewish sects and parties, the Temple and worship in it, ideals of piety and conduct, expectations concerning deliverance, judgment, and vindication, different conceptions of the agents of God’s activity, and the figure of Lady Wisdom in relationship to Israel.

  • Abused God : Religious Addiction Mobilizing A Congregational Response

    $16.49

    This is an incredible book! The reader will understand the subject of spiritual abuse among Brazilian religious leaders, around the greater Boston area and how to respond to it in appropriate ways. There are powerful facts behind this book. It projects a powerful voice of passion and conviction. This book offers critical evidence that a significant number of Brazilian leaders have become dysfunctional and abusive. In this context, Rev. Dr. Pinto-Moura reports that the World Revival Church (hereafter WRC) is an example of a dysfunctional culture producing codependence. They seem to continually strive with combined elements of unbalanced and unorthodox doctrines, controversial government, disciplinary problems, irresponsible leadership – which result in explosive turmoil, division, wounded and confused sheep, and a derogatory reputation in their community. There are scores of people who have been deeply wounded by their experience with WRC. Religious addiction is identified and attacked as a part of this problem. It has been enormously traumatic. This book exposes this complex issue balancing facts with compassion. Developing a healing approach is needed. This supportive data is the result of scholarly studies and truths from the Bible. It substantiates a biblical response to the challenge to bring spiritual health to the Brazilian churches in the U.S. This book addresses healing strategies and explores possible solutions to the demoralizing problem of spiritual abuse. This book is revolutionary, prophetic and apostolic! The healing guidelines can be applied to any ministry and person experiencing the pain of leadership abuse.

  • Discovering God : The Origins Of The Great Religions And The Evolution Of B

    $17.99

    Charting the rise of religion from Stone Age spirituality to the recent spread of Christianity in Africa, Asia, and South America, Discovering God asks the age-old question, if god was present from the beginning of time, why did god wait to reveal god’s self to humans until (according to their respective traditions) Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, the Buddha, etc., came along? Stark asks, why a variety of world religions all sprang up at about the same time (referred to as the Axial Age). And Stark asks, why do many religions seem to share similar features? As the title suggests, Stark’s thesis will be that god was here all along, and humans “discovered” (not invented) god in keeping with their own intellectual and spiritual evolution.

  • Secrets Of The Koran (Reprinted)

    $20.00

    Forget all those evening news sound bites or diplomatically correct half-truths about the Koran and the religion of Islam. If you want to know what the Koran is really about, you have to know what it really says. Don Richardson gives you a nitty-gritty inside look at the Koran, helping to separate fact from fiction. These hard-hitting observations are not the author’s opinion based on what he thinks the Koran seems to imply. Muslim boys are indoctrinated in military camps. Madrasa schools force memorization and repetition of the Koran, particularly those verses that promise heavenly rewards for martyrdom. It took courage to write this serious, documented, and well-sourced book. But the price of truth is courage, regardless of one’s religion.

  • What Every American Needs To Know About The Quran

    $20.00

    Fascinating, fast-paced, objective history of the world from a perspective never imagined. Current events will come into focus in the back drop of 1,400 years of inconceivable yet true events and conflicts. Thousands of books, documents and articles have been researched over several years in preparation for this book. In 2006, Keith Ellison became the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress. He swore in on a Qur’an. Most Americans know little about the Qur’an, who wrote it and how it spread. Mohoammed, who had 15 wives, fought in scores of raids and battles, even cutting off the heads of 700 Jews. Within one hundred years of his death, his followers conquered North Africa, the Holy Land, Persia, Spain – from the Indian Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. Read how Sultan Mehmet II conquered the 1000 year old Byzantine capital of Constantinople – How Jefferson sent Marines to capture the Muslim Barbary pirate port of Tripoli – How Woodrow Wilson tried to save millions of Armenian Christians killed in a jihad in Turkey. You will not be the same after you have learned what every American needs to know about the Qur’an.

  • Look Behind The Facade

    $35.99

    Islam has hidden behind a faAade of goodness for too long. Too many people are falling for the sanitized and false version and continually suggest that Islam is a religion of peace and goodwill. Perhaps due to the fear of terror or familiarity, we seem only able to question the veracity of Christianity but shy away from asking the hard questions of Islam. The time has come to look behind that faAade and view the malignity at the core of Islam. If the free world hobnobs with a repressive system, it will itself become repressive. Make no mistake about it, if upholding freedom in free societies continues to be confused with permissiveness where everything is allowed to flourish, and the distinction between right and wrong continues to be blurred, then like a toad sitting in a warm pan that will boil, the free world will be cooked – using its own fire. Orthodox Islam is the force driving terrorism and unless it is discredited intellectually, the fire of hate and death that it has unleashed will not go away. The terrorists are not abusing Islam; they are the true Muslims who are overwhelmingly supported by the Quran and the examples of their Prophet, Muhammad. Other Muslims are in a state of denial. If Islam is good and true and if reasonable people can find it to be so, why does it entrap converts with the threat of death for apostasy? Why do Muslims claim that the Bible has been changed when the Quran says that no one can change the words of God? Why must we regard the Quran as truthful when it is full of plagiarism, anachronism, false information and hate? Why should we regard Islam as peaceful when it advocates the killing of Jews and infidels in cold blood? How can we trust its ethics when it allows Muslims to lie in its defence? Why must we not fight against it when it denies those in its domain the freedom of speech and the right to follow the dictates of their conscience? Why must God be labelled as unfaithful, inconsistent and a deceiver so that Muhammad can pass as divine messenger?
