How does the experience of being an immigrant, an ethnic minority person on the margins of society, affect one's way of doing theology? In Journeys at the Margin prominent Asian-American theologians reflect on how being an Asian and a North American has shaped the way they understand the Christian story. Asian Americans, having roots in Asia, do not fully belong either to America or Asia. They find themselves straddling two different world cultures, sharing something of both but belonging entirely to neither. Thus, their marginality can best be understood in terms of their experience of living "in-between" two cultures, that of the immigrant and that of the dominant group, and being "in-both" of these cultures—and, ultimately, being "in-beyond" the two cultures altogether. Coming from different parts of the Far East and nourished by diverse Christian traditions, the contributors to Journeys at the Margin bring to their work richly divergent perspectives, resources, and methods. More than an anthology of personal stories, this collection of essays develops the emerging theological themes (including the contributors' visions of a new America) out of their experience. What binds these highly varied essays is their authors' common journeys at the margin. As the United States becomes increasingly multiethnic and multicultural at the threshold of a new millennium, Journeys at the Margin offers useful suggestions on how to meet the challenge of cultural diversity in both Church and society. Articles and their contributors are "An Asian-American Theology: Believing and Thinking at the Boundaries," by Peter C. Phan; “Five Stages Toward Christian Theology in the Multicultural World,” by Choan-Seng Song; “A Life In-Between: A Korean-American Journey,” by Jung Young Lee; “The House of Self,” by Julia Ching; “A Japanese-American Pilgrimage: Theological Reflections,” by Paul M. Nagano; “A Path of Concentric Circles: Toward an Autobiographical Theology of Community,” by David Ng; “‘But Who Do You Say That I Am?’ (Matt 16:15): A Churched Korean American Woman’s Autobiographical Inquiry,” by Jung Ha Kim; “Betwixt and Between: Doing Theology with Memory and Imagination,” by Peter C. Phan; “From Autobiography to Fellowship of Others: Reflections on Doing Ethnic Theology Today,” by Anselm Kyongsuk Min; and “Church and Theology: My Theological Journey,” by Andrew Sung Park.

THE LOTUS PATH, a text-book for Truth seekers, brings a message of unmeasured worth that will appeal to all minds. It opens a path; it reveals a hope; it shows a way; and when practically applied will set divine law in action for the attainment of Illumination, God-consciousness and Freedom Divine. Beautiful in concept, practical in its purpose, it is of untold and eternal value to the searcher after Truth, regardless of church, sect, creed or cult, whether one be Christian, Jew, Roman, Metaphysician, New Thoughtist or Materialist, for conflicting doctrines and prevailing materialism are but honest outgrowths of erroneous views and limited conceptions.

The Karma of Jesus follows the tradition of bold Christian communicators who dare to borrow pop=culture-friendly language to communicate sacred truth. It explains the relevance of Christ's life using the idea of karma, which maintains an exacting payback for one's actions. Using personal vignettes, as well as stories from history, popular culture, and the Bible, pastor Mark Herringshaw walks the reader through a progression of thought. Rather than didactic formulas, he presents questions and conjectures that sensitively reveal how Jesus has reaped the ultimate consequences of our actions.

"This is quintessential Merton."—The Catholic Review. "The moment of takeoff was We left the ground—I with Christian mantras and a great sense of destiny, of being at last on my true way after years of waiting and wondering..." With these words, dated October 15. 1968, the late Father Thomas Merton recorded the beginning of his fateful journey to the Orient. His travels led him from Bangkok, through India to Ceylon, and back again to Bangkok for his scheduled talk at a conference of Asian monastic orders. There he unequivocally reaffirmed his Christian vocation. His last journal entry was made on December 8, 1968, two days before his untimely, accidental death. Amply illustrated with photographs he himself took along the way and fully indexed, the book also contains a glossary of Asian religious terms, a preface by the Indian scholar Amiya Chakravarty, a foreword and postscript by Brother Patrick Hart of the Abbey of Gethsemani, as well as several appendices, among them the text of Merton's final address.

A ministry resource for motivating all Christians to become thoughtful apologists of their faith Although apologetics is as crucial today as it has ever been, the classical model for defending the faith often seems irrelevant to the 21st century where people listen with their eyes and think with their emotions. Is Your Church Ready? Presents a team of highly qualified Christian thinkers—including Ravi Zacharias, John Guest, Jay Budziszewski, Judy Salisbury, Dean Halverson, and Peter Grant—who build a case for the place of apologetics in the local church, home, and school. Using personal examples and illustrations they address: • How to answer objections to Christianity • How to equip children in the home and prepare youth to remain committed to Christ after they leave for college • How to reach international students and the foreign-born Included are discussion questions and a “Church Leaders Resource Guide” to the best books, articles, organizations, and websites on the subject.

Two important contributions to Greek pottery studies. Aftermath, by D. A. Amyx, is a catalogue of material supplementing his work in Corinth VII.2 but found after the cutoff of 1969 or omitted for some other reason. This article and Corinth VII.2 together stand as a full compilation of painters at present represented in the collection of the Corinth Excavations. The Chimaera Group at Corinth and Dodwellians in the Potters' Quarter are both by Patricia Lawrence. The first is a thoughtful analysis of this group of painters, based on a close examination of material found in the excavations at Corinth but including attributed pieces from other sites. The second studies 15 new fragments and reexamines material previously published in Corinth XV.3, demonstrating that the Geladakis Painter, as well as several Dodwellians, are represented there.
