  • Recovering the Female Voice in Islamic Scriptureby Georgina L. Jardim

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 119.95

    This book finds that far from silencing women, the Qur`an affirms the female voice as protester for justice and as questioner of Theology. 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...

  • Testing Fresh Expressionsby John Walker

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 104.95

    Testing Fresh Expressions investigates whether fresh expressions of church really do what is claimed for them by the fresh expressions movement and, in particular, whether their unique approach helps to reverse trends of decline experienced by traditional churches. The book examines those claims and untangles their sociological and theological assumptions.... 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...

  • Theological Reflections on "Gangnam Style"by Joseph Cheah; Grace Ji-Sun Kim

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 45.00

    As we listen to Psy's music are we laughing at him or with him? This book responds to this question from historical and theological perspectives and tackles the pressing issues concerning racial stereotypes, imposed masculinity, and imitating another in order to ridicule him/her. more...

  • Islamophobia, Victimisation and the Veilby Irene Zempi; Neil Chakraborti

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 45.00

    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. It proposes a more effective approach to engaging with these victims; one which recognises their multiple vulnerabilities and their distinct cultural and religious needs.... more...

  • Policy Transfer in Criminal Justiceby Mary Anne McFarlane; Rob Canton

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 105.00

  • Ökumene in Deutschlandby Karl Heinz Voigt

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2014; US$ 42.42

    Kirchlich ist das 20. Jahrhundert das Jahrhundert der Ökumene. Es hat alle Kirchen verändert. Die vorliegende Studie nimmt diesen Prozess auf. Sie fragt nach den Voraussetzungen der Ökumene: Wie verhielten sich die früheren Staats- und späteren Landeskirchen, die seit Jahrhunderten in territorialen Grenzen gelebt hatten, zu den weltweiten Entwicklungen?... more...

  • The Rushdie Fatwa and Afterby Brian Winston

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 80.00

    This resounding defence of the principles of free expression revisits the Satanic Verses uproar of 1989, as well as subsequent incidents such as the Danish cartoons controversy, to argue that the human right of free speech is by no means so secure that it can be taken for granted. more...

  • Making the British Muslimby Nicole Falkenhayner

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 105.00

    Tracing representations of the Rushdie affair from 1989 to 2009, this study establishes a genealogy of how British Muslims appeared on the public scene and how an imaginary and politics of this subject position developed. more...

  • Islam, Peace and Social Justiceby A. Christian Van Gorder

    James Clarke & Co 2014; US$ 32.26

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