Heterosexism
Heterosexism (December 1993)
An Ethical Challenge
Patricia Beattie Jung - Author
Ralph F. Smith - Author

In this ground-breaking book the authors show that the prevailing sexual ethic is no longer useful. It presumes as ideal, a uniform morality based on a limited understanding of human sexuality. Heterosexism is revealed to be a system of prejudice that both grows out of and supports this ethic. It produces various forms of discrimination, particularly those against gay and lesbian people, that cannot be justified.

The authors investigate scr...(Read More)
 
 
Gender and Work
Gender and Work (September 1993)
The Case of the Clergy
Edward C. Lehman Jr. - Author

"This is a very careful and scholarly study of the differences in leadership styles of women clergy and men clergy."
-- Ruth Wallace, George Washington University

"This book is a refreshing change in gender research. Theory and data gathering around gendered concerns have often only examined women. This text samples both women and men; therefore, it not only compares them but says something significant about both. What is significant h...(Read More)
 
 
The Political Dimensions of Religion
The Political Dimensions of Religion (August 1993)
Saïd Amir Arjomand - Editor

"The only other book that deals with Jewish, Christian, and Muslim fundamentalism is the book by Bruce Lawrence. It does not have the range of Arjomand's book." -- Hamid Algar, University of California, Berkeley

"In this book, Said Amir Arjomand has brought together a number of brilliant essays, each addressing a particular aspect of that beguiling force of attraction that relentlessly keeps religion and politics in close proximity--i...(Read More)
 
 
The Ethical Challenge of Auschwitz and Hiroshima
The Ethical Challenge of Auschwitz and Hiroshima (July 1993)
Apocalypse or Utopia?
Darrell J. Fasching - Author

This book addresses the problem of religion, ethics, and public policy in a global technological civilization. It attempts to do what narrative ethicists have said cannot be done--to construct a cross-cultural ethic of human dignity, human rights, and human liberation which respects the diversity of narrative traditions. It seeks to do this without succumbing to either ethical relativism or ethical absolutism.

The author confronts directly ...(Read More)
 
 
Living Banaras
Living Banaras (April 1993)
Hindu Religion in Cultural Context
Bradley R. Hertel - Editor
Cynthia Ann Humes - Editor

By focusing on contemporary popular religious traditions, the book represents a substantial contribution to the study of modern religious practices in Banaras, holy city of India. This book offers in-depth, ethnographic views of many contemporary popular religious practices that have, for the most part, received little attention by scholars. Topics covered include the Ramlila celebrations, devotion to Hanuman, and goddess worship, and the way that...(Read More)
 
 
The Protestant Presence in Twentieth-Century America
The Protestant Presence in Twentieth-Century America (November 1992)
Religion and Political Culture
Phillip E. Hammond - Author

Protestantism has undergone a shift in its relationship with American culture and politics. This book analyzes and evaluates that shift. The author shows how Protestantism began in America as a vibrant civil religion and how it developed so that, by the 1970s, its relationship with American culture and politics had changed radically. He shows how Evangelical Protestantism came into being and remains resilient.

Hammond also discusses religi...(Read More)
 
 
Despair and Deliverance
Despair and Deliverance (July 1992)
Private Salvation in Contemporary Israel
Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi - Author

"It addresses an issue of great importance for many different kinds of people today. It is clear, scholarly, thoughtful and without jargon. This is a study, not just of several minor religious movements, but also an analysis of the social, psychological and moral 'deep-structures' of life in Israel today, with some highly pertinent comparisons to the United States." -- Peter Homans, The Divinity School, The University of Chicago

"Beit-Halla...(Read More)
 
 
Discourse and Practice
Discourse and Practice (May 1992)
Frank E. Reynolds - Editor
David Tracy - Editor

"I believe that Discourse and Practice is a work of considerable significance which opens the way to a vital and progressive view of philosophy of religion reconsidered. It provides a much needed antidote to traditional (and sometimes sterile) treatments of philosophy of religion from purely Western approaches. It shows how 'others' may be seen to have theoretical awareness and interpretive structures of their own, rather than just being the...(Read More)
 
 
Japanese Religion and Society
Japanese Religion and Society (February 1992)
Paradigms of Structure and Change
Winston Davis - Author

"It provides in one place and under one cover useful studies featuring the important interrelationship between religion and society, or -- to put it more correctly-- Japanese religio-social reality." -- Richard B. Pilgrim, Syracuse University

"This is a solid piece of work, and the topic is significant, in fact, timely, in several regards. First, there is much attention today on Japan and the secret of its cultural and social makeup. Second...(Read More)
 
 
They Call Her Pastor
They Call Her Pastor (February 1992)
A New Role for Catholic Women
Ruth A. Wallace - Author

"The book portrays a clear and detailed picture of the life and work of Catholic women pastors. The anecdotes and quotes make the people come alive. (It also) gives us the first look at an important religious phenomenon. It deals with the Church's struggle to come to grips with social changes in twentieth-century American society. These shifts include the women's movement, secularization, and desacralization of church structures. These p...(Read More)
