    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 119.95

In this reading of the female role in divine revelation in the Islamic text, Georgina Jardim returns to the scriptures of the Judeo-Christian counterpart of the Abrahamic faiths, to investigate whether the Bible... more...

  • Orthodox Identities in Western Europeby Maria Hämmerli; Jean-François Mayer

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 124.95

    The Orthodox migration in the West matters, despite its unobtrusive presence. It matters in a way that has not yet been explored in social and religious studies: in terms of size, geographical scope, theological input and social impact. This book explores the adjustment of Orthodox migrants and their churches to Western social and religious contexts... more...

    This book examines the experiences of veiled Muslim women as victims of Islamophobia, and the impact of this victimisation upon women, their families and wider Muslim communities.

    Our world is fraught with horrific expressions of violence and injustice, which are often justified by religious rhetoric.

    Springer 2014; US$ 6.99

    ?Der Diskurs uber Zuwanderer in Deutschland ist haufig verzerrt; Selbst- und Fremdwahrnehmungen klaffen hier meistens weit auseinander.

Deutlicher wird diese Diskrepanz, wenn es... more...
