Summary : Religion—both personal faith and institutional tradition—plays a central role in the lives of the 12.5 million Asians in the United States. It provides comfort and meaning, shapes ethical and political beliefs, and influences culture and arts. Faithful Generations details the significance of religion in the construction of Asian American identity. As an institutional base for the movement toward Asian American panethnicity, churches provide a space for theological and political reflection and ethnic reinvention. With rich description and insightful interviews, Russell Jeung uncovers why and how Chinese and Japanese American Christians are building new, pan-Asian organizations. Detailed surveys of over fifty Chinese and Japanese American congregations in the San Francisco Bay area show how symbolic racial identities structure Asian American congregations. Evangelical ministers differ from mainline Christian ministers in their construction of Asian American identity. Mobilizing around these distinct identities, evangelicals and mainline Christians have developed unique pan-Asian styles of worship, ministries, and church activities. Portraits of two churches further illustrate how symbolic racial identities affect congregational life and ministries. The book concludes with a look at Asian American–led multiethnic churches. This engaging study of the shifting relationship between religion and ethnicity is an ideal text for classes in ethnicity, religion, and Asian American studies.

Summary : Faithful Generations provides a hopeful and helpful guide to the different adult generations alive today, discussing the events that formed them and the issues important to them. Most importantly, it describes their spiritual distinctions—the particular needs, gifts and concerns that drive these different generations. With a basic understanding of how other generations think and what drives them spiritually, ministers and congregations can not only avoid conflict, but also put those distinctions to work in order to minister more effectively and create harmony in our religious communities.

Summary : • Experiential activities for celebrating the saints • For use in churches, schools, camps, and home settings Many of our experiences in life happen when several generations are together – at church, at home, in our communities. Often we only celebrate the saints on All Saints Sunday or when a particular saint is commemorated in a secular way. This volume in the Faithful Celebration series focuses on some well-known and some not-so-well-known saints, many who are not all officially "sainted" but certainly having lived a life of faith under difficult circumstances. Each event recalling a particular saint includes key ideas, a cluster of activities to experience the key ideas, materials needed, full instructions for implementation, background history and information, music, art, recipes, and prayer resources to use in a small, intimate or large multi-generational group. For children, youth, adults, or any combination of ages any of these activities can take place in any setting.

Summary : "A fine primer on the four gospels by a deacon and former professor of New Testament. Her spring-board is the prayer many of learned as children: 'Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John/Guard the bed I lie upon...' showing the evangelists as true guardian angels or messengers of good news." -- The Living Church The words of the child's prayer, "One to watch, one to pray, and two to keep me till the day," reminds us of the special message of each gospel. This book sketches the shape of the Gospels, the four stories of Jesus. It reveals their similarities and differences and how they relate to one another. All the evangelists have distinctive roles as messengers of the good news and guardian angels of our faith. With Mark we watch; he alerts us to the urgency of the good news. With John we pray, and from him we learn the signs of God at work in the world about us. Matthew is the teacher, who leads us forward to teach others, while Luke reveals Jesus the healer, who brings reconciliation and justice to all creation. Clear, concise, and free of technical language, this introduction to gospel "basics" includes the spiritual and devotional aspects of each gospel as well as critical study tools. It can be used for inquirer's classes, adult study groups, and prayer groups who wish the evangelists to illuminate their faith journey.

Summary : "The publication of the Classics of Western Spirituality(TM) represents a cultural event of the greatest importance. It transcends all sectarian boundaries and brings to the spiritually sensitive reader the choicest creations of the human spirit when it is touched by the encounter with God." Rabbi Ben Zion Bokser Isaiah Horowitz: The Generations of Adam translated, edited and with an introduction by Miles Krassen preface by Elliot R. Wolfson "In the Name of God. This is the book, Generations of Adam. Blessed is god who helped me until this point. Many words were produced, concerning great matters. As a result, human action has been explained, regarding both a person's [divine] image and the likeness of his soul and body. Just as his Torah has been explained, so has his formation, which involves the garments of light that became garments of skin. Yet in the future his eye will be opened to great light, the light that is concealed. [We have also explained] the true light, God's light that is concealed for the future, according to the secret of 'on that day YeHYeH YHVH will be One.' This is entirely dependent on the spiritual arousal of human beings, who through their freedom of will have been granted the power to arouse the supernal. [We have also explained] how everything is foreseen, yet permission is granted. Thus is the ultimate purpose of the creation of human beings. Also, the meaning of the 'world to come' and its eternity [has been explained]. For the cloud will perish along with the contamination of the serpent, which Adam drew down through his sin. Evil will be transformed to good and then there will be a world that is completely good. "These themes have been explained in this precious introduction, which is called The Generations of Adam, because all of the causes and events of human life and its purpose have been mentioned within it." -from the beginning of "The Great House" Rabbi Isaiah ben Abraham Horowitz (1570?-1626) In this introduction to the magnum opus of Isaiah Horowitz-a book-length work in itself-he brought together his views concerning many of the most important issues addressed by kabbalists since the late twelfth century. These include basic theological questions concerning how God can be known, the true nature of the Torah, the divine origins of the human soul, the meaning and purpose of life in this world, the nature of the precepts and the power of divine intervention with regard to them, and the ultimate reward of the Messianic Age and the World to Come.

Summary : When we struggle isn’t it nice to know that someone understands? God has given us a cloud of witnesses who understand. Biblical characters struggled with their faith; demanding bosses; unfairness; loss of jobs, family, and friends; and even loss of life, but they also found God faithful. Forty Years Later: God’s Faithfulness Across Generations looks at the stories of biblical characters and, more importantly, at their wilderness journeys as they struggled and grew in faith. God has a plan for His children. God is committed to building faith in His children. God uses struggles in the wilderness to train His children. The Israeli nation refused to enter the Promised Land the first time. Forty years later in the wilderness, they were ready to trust God. Joseph spent years as a slave and prisoner and saved his family from famine. Moses, one of the greatest leaders in history, suggested that God use someone other than himself to lead the nation out of Egypt. God leads, guides, provides, wins the battles, and is ever present with His chosen ones. In the struggles in the wilderness, we learn to know God as our leader, provider, and protector. When everyone else fails us, God remains faithful. God also teaches us, as His chosen, to help others on the journey He has for them. God chose us. God uses us. Forty Years Later will inspire you to see God in your struggles and find hope that He who is faithful has a plan.

Summary : This volume brings together contributions on the study of sexual affairs in committed personal relationships. The editors enlisted colleagues with varied theoretical and methodological perspectives from Britain, the United States, and other countries. Together, their contributions provide a broad, cross-national perspective on affairs. Grounded in theoretical discussion, the chapters in this book introduce data collected by a broad range of methods, including attitude surveys, large statistical cohort studies, case studies, depth interviews, and group discussions. A number of contributors locate the theoretical discussion of affairs within the broader contemporary ordering of committed relationships, contrasting the liberating and empowering aspects of affairs with the damage they may inflict on society as a whole and on the lives of individuals and families. The themes of passion, transgression, secrecy, lies, betrayal, and gossip are common to a range of chapters throughout. The volume provides broad literature reviews and theoretical discussions concerning particular aspects of affairs, such as communication and jealousy. In addition, case studies are used for the more detailed exploration of heterosexual affairs and contemporary developments in gay male and lesbian relationships. The State of Affairs will be of interest to researchers, scholars, and students in social psychology; communication; sociology; family, social, and clinical psychology; and for practitioners in couple counseling.

Summary : In arguing for biblical infant baptism, it is not sufficient for us to say that infant baptism is merely consistent with the Scriptures, or that a biblical case can be made for it. In order for us to be satisfied that we are being biblical Christians, we must be content with nothing less than a clear biblical case requiring infant baptism. In a doctrinal matter of this importance, the standards of evidence are high.
