The election of Barack Obama gave political currency to the (white) idea that Americans now live in a post-racial society. But the persistence of racial profiling, economic inequality between blacks and whites, disproportionate numbers of black prisoners, and disparities in health and access to healthcare suggest there is more to the story. David H. Ikard addresses these issues in an effort to give voice to the challenges faced by most African Americans and to make legible the shifting discourse of white supremacist ideology—including post-racialism and colorblind politics—that frustrates black self-determination, agency, and empowerment in the 21st century. Ikard tackles these concerns from various perspectives, chief among them black feminism. He argues that all oppressions (of race, gender, class, sexual orientation) intersect and must be confronted to upset the status quo.

Blinded by the Light

His holiness is foreign to humanity. He can ... He is therefore different from that
which he created, including mankind. ... The many scriptural depictions of God as
holy and man as sinful provide additional evidence that humans are not divine.

Blinded by the Light sounds an alarm for all who are confused by various reports of Near Death Experiences (NDEs). Lawrence discusses the characteristics of NDEs, including the dark tunnel, the out-of-body experience, the Being of Light, and theological claims such as reincarnation, universal salvation, and the divinity of humanity.

Serving Humanity

Those who are not ready for the coming events will be blinded by the emerging

Service can be briefly described as the spontaneous effect of soul contact. This contact is so definite and fixed that the life of the soul can pour through into the instrument – the personality – which the soul must perforce use upon the physical plane. This book contains a comprehensive collection of quotations to stimulate thought and increase our understanding of service and its vital importance at the present time.

Sixty years since the end of World War II is two generations. And two generations is long enough to measure whether there has been a substantial change in direction in how mankind orders its affairs. It is clear that it has. Not just in matters of war and peace- there has not been a Third World War- but in its attitude to poverty, economic progress, human rights, its habitat and its relationship to the other sex and its offspring. In all there have been great strides forward that at the time of the ending of the war seemed barely conceivable. "Conundrums of Humanity" poses eleven questions for our future progress, ranging from "Can we diminish War?" to "How far and fast can we push forward the frontiers of Human Rights?" to "Will China dominate the century?." The answers to these questions, the author believes, growing out of his long experience as a foreign correspondent and columnist for the International Herald Tribune, are largely positive ones, despite the hurdles yet to be overcome. They all depend for fruition, partly on building on the important work already accomplished, partly on creating a more benign and positive atmosphere in the world order and partly on demonstrating how the world can be even better in the future and thus giving the world's peoples a sense of forward momentum.

New Testament Theology

in exchange for humanity's, in order to appease God's own holiness, which was

New Testament theology ought to be both descriptive and constructive-this is the argument of New Testament Theology: Extending the Table. According to Isaak, New Testament theology is descriptive in that it deals with the accounts that people narrate of their experience with Yahweh, the God of Israel, in the light of Easter. It is constructive in that it joins the diverse testimonies of the New Testament writers into a textured and thick space within which contemporary followers of Jesus continue to be shaped by the ancient yet living Spirit of God. Isaak's approach is historical, thematic, and theological in orientation. It explores the conversation taking place "around the table," where the writers of the NT share their guiding vision of God's saving work among them, and their passion for the Christian church engaged in God's mission. The differing perspectives of the New Testament authors are held together without reduction, forming a deep and rich space within which ongoing community reflection and praxis can take place.

Abingdon Pillars of Theology is a series for the college and seminary classroom designed to help students grasp the basic and necessary facts, influence, and significance of major theologians. Written by noted scholars, these books outline the context, methodology, organizing principles, primary contributions, and key writings of people who have shaped theology as we know it today. John Calvin (1509-1564) continues to be read and discussed because he illumines our human experience. Although inseparable from his context, Calvin's theology speaks for itself, thus identifying ways Calvin remains a living voice for those who struggle with the meaning of Christian faith.

A passage between the stars, the moon and the thoughts caught within all of us. The different emotions we hide sometimes when left staring at the sun feeling the moon within your mind. For all the people and chances that have gone before. Of all the times we felt so much alive and the regrets we hold like the dark side of the moon. Knowing the journey will lead us within the sun; changing our views. Feeling a step within life is just a change within our minds. Now feel the journey within one mind; take the time to ponder all the thoughts and feelings felt within one sun and the mood of this life and how it can lift you higher and take you down when you lose the focus of the road that lies ahead and people who move like ghosts within your trail. Knowing one day you will unite the Sun and the Moon and find a distant peace within your heart. This may take time and Journey will have many falls. But the road is just a reflection within the memories of our minds.

Fable and Lore: A Collection of Mythology came into being during a six week mythology unit which emphasized classical literature, formal and creative writing. This anthology is not entirely based on classical mythology, as it includes several modern explanations for natural phenomena.
