In this book contemporary Judaism is presented in all its rich diversity, including both traditional and modern theologies as well as secular forms of Jewish identity. While the focus of the book is on developments that have taken place in the past two hundred years, they are set against a historical background, going back to the Bible. Beginning with a description of the Jewish people as it exists in today's world, it studies the unique concept of Jewish peoplehood and its survival over the centuries in the face of many challenges. An account of the key texts is followed by studies of the different interpretations of the religion, and the ways that life is lived out both in the home and in the community. Jewish theology is described both historically and in terms of contemporary issues. An important and distinctive section considers the goals of Jewish life and faith.

Love your Muslim neighbors.

Motivated by a deep-rooted conviction that the North American church needs to be equipped for this important task, Micah Fries and Keith Whitfield have gathered a group of experts who are deeply invested in successful outreach to their Muslim neighbors. Unlike many resources that explore the topic of Islam as a dominant religion in the Middle East, Islam and North America focuses on the presence of Islam here in North America. Answering questions about the commonalities between Christians and Muslims, freedom of worship, the Quran, and Sharia law, this book will equip North American Christians to think about Islam theologically and missionally, engage their Muslim neighbors hospitably, and encourage readers to find new opportunities for missional engagement in their own backyards.

Moishe Rosen's career as a missionary to the Jewish people and mentor to many has been characterized as cutting edge, creative, controversial, and consequential . . . . His vision for Jewish missions has always been larger than just the organization he founded. Moishe Rosen is an innovator of methods and strategies in Jewish evangelism and an appreciator and empowerer whose gifts have been used to lift the Lord high. -From the Tribute by Susan Perlman In tribute to this influential leader, Jews and the Gospel at the End of History combines the insights of world-class theologians, exegetes, and historians to address Jewish, Messianic Jewish, and Christian issues, from evangelism to ethics to eschatology. Part 1 begins with a study of the biblical emphasis on Jewish evangelism in the Bible, looking at God's concern and love for his people. Part 2 illuminates the historical, philosophical and scriptural interplay between ethics, missions, and biblical law. Part 3 unfolds the plan of God, the end times, and the Second Advent. The trajectory of this book moves from instruction to hope-both enlightening and inspiring those in ministry to Jewish people and serving as a fitting tribute to Moishe Rosen, founder of Jews for Jesus.

OXFORD DICT OF ISLAM

The dictionary focuses primarily on the 19th and 20th centuries, stressing topics of most interest to Westerners. What emerges is a highly informative look at the religious, political, and social spheres of the modern Islamic world. Naturally, readers will find many entries on topics of intense current interest, such as terrorism and the Taliban, Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida, the PLO and HAMAS. But the coverage goes well beyond recent headlines. There are biographical profiles, ranging from Naguib Mahfouz (the Nobel Prize winner from Egypt) to Malcolm X, including political leaders, influential thinkers, poets, scientists, and writers. Other entries cover major political movements, militant groups, and religious sects as well as terms from Islamic law, culture, and religion, key historical events, and important landmarks (such as Mecca and Medina). A series of entries looks at Islam in individual nations, such as Afghanistan, the West Bank and Gaza, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and the United States, and the

    One of the Best Books of the Year: The Economist, The Christian Science Monitor

    China is in the midst of one of the world's great spiritual awakenings: some 300 million Chinese currently practice a faith, while tens of millions more follow personal gurus, populist masters and New Age sages. This astonishing revival began in 1982 when the Communist Party pledged to allow what it thought would be a small-scale practice of religion under government supervision. But the faithful have expanded far beyond the Party's expectations: Today, China's cities and villages are filled with new temples, churches, and mosques as well as cults, sects and politicians trying to harness religion for their own ends. Fueling this resurgence is a popular desire to rediscover a moral compass in a society driven by naked capitalism.

    For six years, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Ian Johnson lived for extended periods with three religious communities: the underground Early Rain Protestant congregation in Chengdu, the Ni family's Buddhist pilgrimage association in Beijing, and yinyang Daoist priests in rural Shanxi. Johnson distills these experiences into a cycle of festivals, births, deaths, detentions, and struggle that reveals the hearts and minds of the Chinese people--a great awakening of faith that is shaping the soul of the world's newest superpower.
