Private Salvation in Contemporary Israel

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)

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)
