Description : Amid so much twenty-first-century talk of a "Christian-Muslim divide"--and the attendant controversy in some Western countries over policies toward minority Muslim communities--a historical fact has gone unnoticed: for more than four hundred years beginning in the mid-seventh century, some 50 percent of the world's Christians lived and worshipped under Muslim rule. Just who were the Christians in the Arabic-speaking milieu of Mohammed and the Qur'an? The Church in the Shadow of the Mosque is the first book-length discussion in English of the cultural and intellectual life of such Christians indigenous to the Islamic world. Sidney Griffith offers an engaging overview of their initial reactions to the religious challenges they faced, the development of a new mode of presenting Christian doctrine as liturgical texts in their own languages gave way to Arabic, the Christian role in the philosophical life of early Baghdad, and the maturing of distinctive Oriental Christian denominations in this context. Offering a fuller understanding of the rise of Islam in its early years from the perspective of contemporary non-Muslims, this book reminds us that there is much to learn from the works of people who seriously engaged Muslims in their own world so long ago.

Description : The Shadow of the Hakenkreuz is a biographical journal of the first half of German history in the Twentieth Century as observed by a German family. Coming out of the first world war, Germans tried to understand their lives apart from a ruling imperial family, adjusting to democracy under the Weimar Republic. Before they understood this new society, they found themselves ensnared by a totally new political system. Freedom for Germany and Europe came at a ghastly price of death and destruction, when the rest of the world helped to throw off the yoke of the Hakenkreuz.

Description : Art is a spiritual ministry that must be studied, nurtured, and influenced by the church. Christian artists need to understand the weighty responsibilities of their calling, and the church must understand the importance of art as a divinely appointed ministry. In The Shadow of Beauty, S. Talmond Brown urges artists and church leaders to realize the need for a mission to reestablish the church's cultural authority and recognize art as a God-honored career. Brown includes works by such renowned artists as Leonardo da Vinci and William Blake, presenting biblical proof that all art forms—including paintings, sculptures, music, and literature—are an important means by which artists and non-artists alike can spread God's Word and should be developed to the fullest. Covering such subjects as biblical enigmas, the potential benefits and dangers of art, and the role of art in redeeming our culture, Brown poignantly recounts the church's aesthetic history, revealing the keys to discovering the truth hiding behind The Shadow of Beauty. Stephen Talmond Brown has published the most systematic approach to a truly Reformed Christian theory and practice of art attempted in decades. Equal parts devotional, aesthetic theory, church history, and reformed apologetics, The Shadow of Beauty rolls along with a spiritual rigor and elegance rare for our age. —Tony Norman, Columnist/Associate Editor, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Description : The contrast between battlefield and home front, soldier and civilian was the basis for memory and collective gratitude. Postwar commemoration, however, also grew directly out of the long and agonized search for the remains of hundreds of thousands of missing soldiers, and the sometimes contentious debates over where to bury them. For this reason, the local monument, with its inscribed list of names and its functional resemblance to tombstones, emerged as the focal point of commemorative practice. Sherman traces every step in the process of monument building as he analyzes commemoration's competing goals--to pay tribute to the dead, to console the bereaved, and to incorporate mourners' individual memories into a larger political discourse."--Pub. description.
