Rosemary Pennington, Hilary E. Kahn, “On Islam: Muslims and the Media”

2018 | ISBN-10: 0253032555, 0253029341 | 180 pages | PDF | 1 MB

In the constant deluge of media coverage on Islam, Muslims are often portrayed as terrorists, refugees, radicals, or victims, depictions that erode human responses of concern, connection, or even a willingness to learn about Muslims. On Islam helps break this cycle with information and strategies to understand and report the modern Muslim experience.
Journalists, activists, bloggers, and scholars offer insights into how Muslims are represented in the media today and offer tips for those covering Islam in the future. Interviews provide personal and often moving firsthand accounts of people confronting the challenges of modern life while maintaining their Muslim faith, and brief overviews provide a crash course on Muslim beliefs and practices. A concise and frank discussion of the Muslim experience, On Islam provides facts and perspective at a time when truth in journalism is more vital than ever.

The idea of people possessed by evil spirits against their will is as old as the hills. Often there is thought to be a special way a person has become possessed. It might be the result of a curse cast on them by a sorcerer, or some unfortunate mishap such as stepping over a dead body.
Or the demons can have been invited, in a Satanic ritual. More often, at least in recent Christian tradition, there is no initiating moment that can be identified – they just find their way in, like disease. From Pearl Curran, a housewife living in St Louis, Missouri, who soared to fame in the second decade of the 20th century as the amanuensis of ‘Patience Worth’, a writer who had died in the 17th century, to victims of Dissociative Personality Disorder (thought to have inspired Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde), this book examines demonic possession from every angle.

Uniquely in the kingdoms of western Christendom, the Scottish bishops obtained authority, in 1225, to hold inter-diocesan meetings without a supervisory archbishop, and continued to meet in this way for nearly 250 years. Donald Watt provides an authoritative study of these church councils from the Latin and English records based on original sources.In addition to creating an original work of considerable historical interest, Professor Watt brings discussion of the councils and their significance into the broader context of Scotland’s political, legal, ecclesiastical and social situation over a long period.An important contribution to Scottish church history and to its influence on contemporary affairs.

From Hot Mess to Blessed: Hope to Propel Your Soul and the Promises That Change Everything by Julie Gillies

Every woman struggles to believe she is who God says she is and to believe the stunning promises He whispers to her heart. But when you’re a hot mess (and we all are to one degree or another), it’s hard to imagine things can be different—that you can be different.
Author Julie Gillies has experienced broken dreams, trauma, and plenty of drama, but she has also encountered the holy hope and promises of God. She longs to help you…
• understand your identity in Christ instead of believing “I’ll always be this way”
• embrace your true significance instead of feeling less-than
• hold on to peace instead of freaking out when hard things keep happening
• grasp your God-given destiny and begin walking in it
It’s not that God doesn’t bless hot messes. (If that were the case, where would any of us be?) But you don’t have to remain a hot mess. It’s time to receive and experience God’s hope and promises in a fresh way!
Includes questions for group study or personal reflection.
