This title explores how Al-Huda is fostering a new generation of educated, urban, middle-class women to become veiled conservatives.

In the face of apparently rampant individualism, there has been a steady call for a return to community and tradition, particularly in religious communities and in recent Christian theology and ethics. The form of contemporary life upheld by modern ideals like freedom and universalism, the story goes, turns out to divide people from each other and from the communal sources of our traditionally moral values. But the call to community too often confuses individualism with individuality, assuming that any appeal to individuality as a value or ideal is a rejection of communal goods, rather than a mode of promoting those goods. What's necessary now is a recovery of the individual that understands individuality to serve community, even in resistance to it. In Transforming Faith, Joshua Daniel offers a fresh reading of H. Richard Niebuhr's theological ethics that provides an account of individuality and individual creativity as both the fruits and reformers of community. What is theologically at stake in Daniel's reconstructive interpretation is the human's existentially resonant relation with God and the christological revitalization of our symbolic and virtuous activity.

The Golden Rule of “do unto others” has often been called the essence of religion. But Fred Howard's own spiritual journey takes a decidedly less traveled path when he faces a situation where the Golden Rule simply isn't adequate. Embarking on a deep spiritual quest away from literal Christianity and into the New Thought movements of the 1980s and 1990s, Howard eventually comes full circle to reclaim his Christian identity. Armed with a fresh perspective on his old life, he now sees the doctrines and tenets with new eyes. In Transforming Faith: Stories of Change from a Lifelong Spiritual Seeker, Howard explores this fresh insight through the five areas of imagination, faith, compassion, God, and Christianity. Using the time-tested tradition of conveying wisdom through story, Howard encourages you to develop a transforming faith—one that not only leads to changes in your life, but also one that grows into new understandings of the reality of God's presence. Following in the footsteps of M. Scott Peck's The Road Less Traveled, this book offers a fresh and sometimes unconventional guide to understanding your spirituality.

Transforming Faith Communities argues for a model of being church that combines congregationalism with a constructive approach to church-state relationships. Congregationalism within a vision for a renewed Christendom is commended here as a viable option for Christian mission in the twenty-first-century world. In making this case, two movements are explored--those inspired by sixteenth-century Anabaptism and late twentieth-century Latin American liberation theology. Each movement is held up as a mirror to the other. A continuing vision for the transformation of church and society emerges from this book as a number of contemporary resonances begin to sound. These include an outline of some likely common features in the development of radical religious communities, an examination of some of the factors that create world-affirming Christian faith communities, and many examples of effective and constructive engagement with church and society across the centuries.

This book examines the persistence of religious belief in an America that has become increasingly secular. A series of essays addresses specific aspects of the interaction between the sacred and the secular in modern U.S. history and offers a unique perspective on how the two have transformed each other as well as the nature of American religious culture. The essays cover such diverse topics as religion and popular culture, ethnicity and race, religion and women, religion and medicine, and the endurance of evangelical traditions, while also placing American religion in a larger, historical framework.

For decades the accepted wisdom has been that America's mainline Protestant churches are in decline, eclipsed by evangelical mega-churches. Church and religion expert Diana Butler Bass wondered if this was true, and this book is the result of her extensive, three-year study of centrist and progressive churches across the country. Her surprising findings reveal just the opposite—that many of the churches are flourishing, and they are doing so without resorting to mimicking the mega-church, evangelical style. Christianity for the Rest of Us describes this phenomenon and offers a how-to approach for Protestants eager to remain faithful to their tradition while becoming a vital spiritual community. As Butler Bass delved into the rich spiritual life of various Episcopal, United Methodist, Disciples of Christ, Presbyterian, United Church of Christ, and Lutheran churches, certain consistent practices—such as hospitality, contemplation, diversity, justice, discernment, and worship—emerged as core expressions of congregations seeking to rediscover authentic Christian faith and witness today. This hopeful book, which includes a study guide for groups and individuals, reveals the practical steps that leaders and laypeople alike are taking to proclaim an alternative message about an emerging Christianity that strives for greater spiritual depth and proactively engages the needs of the world.

From the beginning, the Abrahamic faiths--Judaism, Christianity, and Islam--have stressed the importance of transmitting religious identity from one generation to the next. Today, that sustaining mission has never been more challenged. Will young people have a faith to guide them? How can faith traditions anchor religious attachments in this secular, skeptical culture?The fruit of a historic gathering of scholars and religious leaders across three faiths and many disciplines, this important book reports on the religious lives of young people in today's world. It's also a unique inventory of creative and thoughtful responses from churches, synagogues, and mosques working to keep religion a significant force in those lives.The essays are grouped thematically. Opening the book, Melchor Sanchez de Toca and Nancy Ammerman explore fundamental issues that have an impact on religion--from the cultural effects of global consumerism and personal technology to pluralism and individualism. In Part Two, leading investigators present three leading studies of religiosity among young people and college students in the United States, illuminating the gap between personal values and organized religion--and the emergence of new, different forms of spirituality and faith. How religious institutions deal with these challenges forms the heart of the book--in portraits of "best practices" developed to revitalize traditional institutions, from a synagogue in New York City and a Muslim youth camp in California to the famed French Catholic community of the late Brother John of Taizé. Finally, Jack Miles and Diane Winston weave the findings into a broader perspective of the future of religious belief, practice, and feeling in a changing world.Filled with real-world wisdom, Passing the Faith will be an essential resource for anyone seeking to understand what religions must, and can, do to inspire a vigorous faith in the next generation.

Through a contextual comparison of the theological ethics of H. Richard Niebuhr and the educational theory of Paulo Freire, I argue that socialization, while an essential task of moral education, is an insufficient aim. The proper aim of moral education is individual development. The intention of my argument is address tendencies towards conservative authoritarianism discernible in recent enthusiasm for the task of socialization by recovering individuality as a crucial agent of communal development. Communities tend to contract the scope of their moral care and concern until self-defense becomes their posture towards other communities, a tendency that an emphasis on socialization abets. However, individuals within communities can transcend their socialization and so resist such contraction; insofar as such individuals gain a following, their moral communities can expand and become vulnerable to transformation, both within and without. This account of individuality and communal development is funded by a Christian theological account of divine-human relations whereby individuals are understood to have a direct relation to God that is irreducible to their social relations with each other in their various communities, particularly to social relations between Christians within the church. This direct relation to God enables individuals to transcend their socialization into various communities and so creatively enact communal transformations. In fact, it is a direct relation to God that has been distorted that is understood to motivate the contraction of one's moral communities and so the emphasis on socialization. Thus, individual development must be recovered as the aim of moral education.

Groundbreaking author Brian McLaren, voice of the Christian emergent movement and author of the 'New Kind of Christian' series, poses ten controversial questions that could lead to a radical redefinition of the Christian faith. What is the overarching storyline of the Bible? What is the Gospel? Why is sexuality such a divisive issue among Christians? How should followers of Jesus relate to people of other religions? McLaren gives his own responses to these questions, inviting the reader to a new and generous way of thinking about Christianity.

Everyone experiences pain. Illness, aging, and emotional distress touch all of our lives. Each of us has a soul, or Higher self, that has come into human form to have life experiences. These experiences are designed to provide us opportunities to learn the lessons we need for our spiritual growth. It’s from pain that we grow. Rather than being afraid or overwhelmed by life’s challenges, we can learn how to connect with our Higher self, using our intuitive mind. Making the leap of faith to use our sixth sense to bypass our rational mind and receive inner guidance promotes improved health, greater happiness, and peace of mind. Using case histories accumulated over forty years of practicing family medicine, Dr. Millman discusses many different illnesses and emotional issues and the specifi c lessons each one presents. He uses his holistic and spiritual approach to healing to make sense of the death of our physical body and the transition of our spirit to the other side.
