Civil war, the completion of transcontinental railroads, rapid urbanization and industrialization, the rise of managerial capitalism, and new entanglements abroad rent the fabric of life in nineteenth-century America. Through all the turmoil, the American Bible Society thrived. This engaging book tells how a modest antebellum reform agency responded to cataclysmic social change and grew to be a nonprofit corporate bureaucracy that managed, among other projects, what was one of the largest publishing houses in the United States. Peter J. Wosh weaves a richly detailed narrative that places the Society's transformation within the cultural, racial, and religious landscape of its times. In the process, he offers keen insight into the processes of institutionalization, bureaucratization, professionalization, and community-building. Spreading the Word is also the story of people - from patrician New Yorkers who sat on the ABS governing board to shrewd young men-on-the-rise who served as Bible agents, from wealthy Quaker philanthropist Thomas Eddy, who conceived the ABS as part of a larger network of savings banks, penitentiaries, and other urban reforms, to poverty-stricken New Englander Simeon Calhoun, who discovered his mission in life selling Bibles and preaching salvation throughout Turkey and Lebanon. As Wosh journeys through venues as diverse as a clapboard Primitive Baptist meetinghouse in Kentucky and the spectacular five-story Bible House in New York City, he overturns traditional views of benevolence and reform. Drawing on the Society's previously unexplored archives and on other contemporary accounts, Wosh conveys the flavor - and the ironies - of organizational life. He illustrates how the ABS adapted its fund-raising strategies, financial structure, corporate organization, and technological infrastructure to meet rapidly changing national conditions, and he raises important questions about the nature of religion and reform in a market-oriented society.

A free open access ebook is available upon publication. Learn more at www.luminosoa.org. There is a vast body of imaginal literature in Bengali that introduces fictional Sufi saints into the complex mythological world of Hindu gods and goddesses. Dating to the sixteenth century, the stories—pīr katha—are still widely read and performed today. The events that play out rival the fabulations of the Arabian Nights, which has led them to be dismissed as simplistic folktales, yet the work of these stories is profound: they provide fascinating insight into how Islam habituated itself into the cultural life of the Bangla-speaking world. In Witness to Marvels, Tony K. Stewart unearths the dazzling tales of Sufi saints to signal a bold new perspective on the subtle ways Islam assumed its distinctive form in Bengal.

With illuminating case studies based on extensive field research, Exporting the American Gospel demonstrates how Christian fundamentalism has taken hold in many nations in Africa, Latin America and Asia.

I am the treasurer of Saint Anne and all Saints, Vauxhall, and have qualified for The Diocesan Certificate in Biblical and Theological Studies. My intention here is to outline what the words of Jesus evoke in me as an ordinary Christian. Having prayed before the task that was in front of me I hope I have some inspiring comments to make that will be instructive to fellow Christians and even unbelievers. The following verse of a favourite hymn, popular with many, hopefully may be applicable during the process of reading this book as Jesus is very much alive and present in my life generally. I heard the voice of Jesus say: 'Come unto me and rest; Lay down, Thou weary one, lay down Thy head upon my breast.' I came to Jesus as I was, Weary and worn and sad, I found in Him a resting-place, And He has made me glad. I hope my comments will result in a closer relationship of the reader with Jesus, and that the end result will be peace and hope for the future as Christians.

The Oxford History of Byzantium is the only history to provide in concise form detailed coverage of Byzantium from its Roman beginnings to the fall of Constantinople and assimilation into the Turkish Empire. Lively essays and beautiful illustrations portray the emergence and development of a distinctive civilization, covering the period from the fourth century to the mid-fifteenth century. The authors - all working at the cutting edge of their particular fields - outline the political history of the Byzantine state and bring to life the evolution of a colourful culture. In AD 324, the Emperor Constantine the Great chose Byzantion, an ancient Greek colony at the mouth of the Thracian Bosphorous, as his imperial residence. He renamed the place 'Constaninopolis nova Roma', 'Constantinople, the new Rome' and the city (modern Istanbul) became the Eastern capital of the later Roman empire. The new Rome outlived the old and Constantine's successors continued to regard themselves as the legitimate emperors of Rome, just as their subjects called themselves Romaioi, or Romans long after they had forgotten the Latin language. In the sixteenth century, Western humanists gave this eastern Roman empire ruled from Constantinople the epithet 'Byzantine'. Against a backdrop of stories of emperors, intrigues, battles, and bishops, this Oxford History uncovers the hidden mechanisms - economic, social, and demographic - that underlay the history of events. The authors explore everyday life in cities and villages, manufacture and trade, machinery of government, the church as an instrument of state, minorities, education, literary activity, beliefs and superstitions, monasticism, iconoclasm, the rise of Islam, and the fusion with Western, or Latin, culture. Byzantium linked the ancient and modern worlds, shaping traditions and handing down to both Eastern and Western civilization a vibrant legacy.

This is a practical guide written by two professionals with real-world experience establishing a library student advisory board. Penn State University’s Schuylkill campus library has such a board, operating beautifully. Different from traditional student advisory boards, the club at Penn State Schuylkill resembles a public library’s “friends” group. The activities of the club benefit not only the library and campus but the club members themselves. Just how much time, effort, and know-how is required to form a library student advisory board? Here is the answer. Useful advice is offered on how to get a club started, how to recruit new members and keep them active, the duties of the club advisor, basic “do’s and don’ts” of fundraising, and how to build a successful relationship between the club, the library director, and the library staff.

This volume brings together analyses of key domestic, foreign and security policy issues during the Putin and Medvedev administrations. Indeed, the chapters demonstrate the extent to which domestic and foreign policy issues are inextricably linked, in particular in the domain of security, whether 'hard' or 'soft'. Internal debates regarding Russia's trajectory, including issues of national identity; economic modernisation, human rights and democracy, continue to be at the forefront of concern. Moreover, these debates are intimately connected to Russia's self-image and the image therefore, that it wishes to project in the wider world. The debates focus on Russia as 'energy superpower'; as one of the 'BRICS'; as an Eurasian landbridge, or a window on the Asia-Pacific. Such debates are a constant reminder of the uncertainty surrounding Russia's future path. This book expresses these uncertainties which range from the role of nuclear weapons and energy to critiques of Russia's approach to concepts such as sovereignty and self-determination; the fight against terrorism, insurgency, and the role of Islam within and without. Russia may have left the 'chaos' of the Yeltsin years behind but, as we move into 'Putin 3.0', the concerns of these chapters will remain critical both to Russia itself, and to Russia's relations with the wider world. This book was published as a special issue of Europe-Asia Studies.

What do today's headlines have to do with yesterday's Bible Prophecies? Could the prophets of old really foretell events that cover our news today? If you find yourself intrigued with events that surround us daily and wonder if there is a greater purpose then this book will give you the insight you need to understand today and prepare for tomorrow with great hope! Bible prophecy was not written centuries ago to scare or frighten us. Rather it was written to give us clues for understanding the world in which we live. Unfortunately Bible prophecy has gotten a bum rap. Too many times people have gotten wrapped up in the judgements of Revelations and failed to see that there is much more to discover in prophecy that doom. The prophetic scriptures, though understood individually, fit together like a puzzle. Focussing on one book or event in prophecy and refusing to piece it together with others limits understanding and clear insight. You don't have to be a Bible scholar to gain knowledge about the signs of our times. With Bible prophecy being fulfilled at such an incredible speed and all eyes on Israel and the Middle East now, more than ever, it is time to live life intentionally with our eyes on Jesus. Ezekiel predicted that Russia would be a major player during the last days. This generation has seen Russia Rise and Time Magazine even name Putin Man of the Year for 2007! Prophets of old wrote that there would be an increase in violence, marriage would come under attack, deception would be prevelant and moral decay would be evident. Even though it looks like things are falling a part you can be certain that things are simply falling into place...just as the scriptures said!

Beyond Revenge is a compelling, complex story of a young woman betrayed by the man she loved. Its a riveting tale with its genesis in a quiet Amerindian village in Guyanas interior. Then it snakes its way to a stunningly dramatic conclusion, in the process embracing several genressuspense, romance, science fiction, and drama. In his fast-paced debut novel, Godfrey Wray captures the essence of storytelling and glues readers to their seats with the intriguing twists and turns that remind one of the more accomplished authors. Its a tale without the obligatory violence and mayhem that many writers in these times use to nauseating effect. A well-trained female officer in the Guyana Defence Force is sent on an international mission to New York. She is forced to abandon mission headquarters after learning of a plot to tamper with her brain cells. However, before she leaves the Big Apple, she is raped in a Brooklyn park by three men. Ruth Elizabeth Ferreira, a super athlete and scholar nurtured by a Catholic priest, exacts revenge on the three miscreants before returning to her South American homeland to deal with her duplicitous lover, who had engineered the conspiracy with his CIA counterparts. In this first book, the author displays a remarkable insight into the fiction world, skillfully embodying moving sequences based on human emotions. His racy style and refreshing narrative power immediately position him above the fray. This gale force is one the Caribbean and the wider world will be sure to welcome.
