The Crucifixion of the Jews: The Failure of Christians to Understand the Jewish Experience
By author: Frank H. Littell
Product Code: P031
ISBN: 9780865542273
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
“Prophetic in the sense that it warns of the consequences of the failure to acknowledge, repent of, and make restitution for sin, Littell’s book confronts Christendom with its massive betrayal of the Jewish people when the Holocaust came upon them and of its continuing unwillingness to admit betrayal. The multifarious anti-Semitism that led both to the Holocaust and to the churches’ response to it is traced to an ancient but persistent error in Christian thought: the flight from history—the tendency to speculate, ‘spiritualize,’ and systematize rather than to remember, recapitulate, reenact, and receive grace and truth from a real tradition of historical events….The healing and restorative potentialities of this book make it deserving of the widest possible circulation.” --Library Journal

The Invisible Hand in the Wilderness: Economics, Ecology, and God
Product Code: P489
ISBN: 9780881464870
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $30.00
Most environmental theologians focus their efforts on inspiring a love for the natural world. They seek out metaphors and images from the world’s scriptures to create an ethical revolution so that people will begin to passionately care for the earth. The problem with this approach is that most people already appreciate nature. However, the values that direct their lives at work and as consumers are more important to them. They are more likely to derive their sense of meaning and articulate their goals using the symbols and methodologies of economics. This book brings together insights from three fields: economics, ecology, and theology in order to construct a more healthy and productive picture of human wellbeing. Economic ideas have a theological history that needs to be addressed if we are to begin healing the world.
