3 Eyes For The Journey
Studies of African-derived religious traditions have generally focused on their retention of easily traceable African elements. This emphasis, says Dianne Stewart, slights the ways in which communities in the African diaspora have created and formed religious meaning. In this fieldwork-based study Stewart shows that African people have been agents of their own religious, ritual, and theological formation. Looking at the African-derived and African-centered traditions in historical and contemporary Jamaica (Myal, Obeah, Native Baptist, Revival/Zion, Kumina, and Rastafari), Stewart develops three central themes. First, she contends that anti-African and Afrophobic sentiments adversely affected African-derived religious cultures in early Jamaica. Second, she argues that African-derived religions in Jamaica are systematic traditions worthy of theological exploration and interrogation in their own right. Third, she shows that these religions have in common an African-derived emphasis on healing, well-being, and the integration and affirmation of purposeful life experience. In conclusion, Stewart draws on these rich but often despised traditions in order to forge a new womanist liberation theology for the Caribbean.

God I Never Knew$16.00Add to cart
Who is the Holy Spirit, and exactly what does He do?
Many people find the Holy Spirit mysterious, confounding-even controversial. Why is the third person in the Godhead-the one Jesus said would be the believer’s ultimate source of truth and comfort-the source of such confusion?
In The God I Never Knew, Robert Morris clearly explains that the Holy Spirit’s chief desire is for relationship–to offer us the encouragement and guidance of a trusted friend. This insightful and biblically-based book moves beyond theological jargon, religious tradition, and cultural misconceptions to clarify what the Holy Spirit promises to do in your life:
* Dwell within you
* Be your helper
* Guide you into all truth
* Comfort you
* Pray for you
* Show you things to come
* Never leave you
It’s time to experience the Holy Spirit in a fresh, new way-to meet the God you may have never known.
