In Jesus of Arabia, the Reverend 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 Arabia, 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. Thompson draws on his experience as a priest in the Anglican Church and his many years living in the Middle East to analyze the often conflicting roles and loyalties concerning family, culture, and God. A timely and incisive work, Jesus of Arabia invites us to consider contemporary views of the Middle East and how a figure like Jesus might be received today.

This title brings new light and life to our understanding of one of the most beloved and central images of the Christian faith. The Lord is my shepherd. Thus begins the most beloved of all Psalms - and thus begins a thousand-year journey through the Bible. Prophets, apostles and Jesus himself took up his image from David, reshaping it, developing it, and applying their own situations and needs. Kenneth Bailey uses his celebrated insights into Middle Eastern culture and especially his familiarity with Middle Easter shepherding customs to bring new light and life to our understanding of this central image of Christian faith.

The result of over thirty years of research and lecturing, Paul Through Mediterranean Eyes is a ground-breaking study of Paul's first epistle to the Corinthians. Bailey examines this canonical letter through the lenses of Paul's Jewish socio-cultural and rhetorical background and the Mediterranean context of the Corinthian recipients. In a set of connected essays, he draws the reader's attention to the letter's rootedness in the Hebrew prophetic tradition, the intentional theological structure of Paul's epistolary organization and the Near Eastern cultural practices that inflect Paul's rhetorical performance. All of this is brought to bear in teasing out the nature of Paul's response to the critical situations facing the Corinthian community: racial, ethnic and theological divisions, sexual misconduct, intimate interaction with pagan practices and disputes about church practices.

Did you know that... King John of England offered to convert to Islam and hand over fealty of his kingdom in return for help from the Moors? Goethe was much influenced by the Persian poet Hafiz, known to his 14th-century contemporaries as "sugarlips"? The world's oldest university was founded in Cairo - long before those in the West? Georgian architecture was anticipated in at least one Persian building of the 6th century B.C.? Freudian theories of dreams were propounded by Hakim Sanai of Ghazna centuries before Freud's birth? The idea of evolution appeared in the works of Rumi, who died in 1273? This book is packed with tidbits of new information, enchanting stories, anecdotes, and travelers' tales. The advice offered in the section "Eastern Customs - Western Travelers" is invaluable for the business traveler. The Middle East Bedside Book brings the full color and spirit of this region to life through the eyes of past and present writers, observers, poets, and travelers. Dress, medicine, backgammon, psychology, politics, chess, attitudes about women, honor, music - even toothpicks and tourists - are covered. Like every good bedside book, each entry entertains, absorbs, moves to laughter, amazement, and even tears. A timely look at common threads linking Western culture with the Middle East.
