            The Apple of His Eye: Converts from Islam in the Reign of Louis IX
             

            The Apple of His Eye: Converts from Islam in the Reign of Louis IX (EPUB ebook)

            By Jordan, William Chester

            The thirteenth century brought new urgency to Catholic efforts to convert non-Christians, and no Catholic ruler was more dedicated to this undertaking than King Louis IX of France. His military expeditions against Islam are well documented, but there was also a peaceful side to h...is encounter with the Muslim world, one that has received little attention until now. This splendid book shines new light on the king's program to induce Muslims-the "apple of his eye"-to voluntarily convert to Christianity and resettle in France. It recovers a forgotten but important episode in the history of the Crusades while providing a rare window into the fraught experiences of the converts themselves.William Chester Jordan transforms our understanding of medieval Christian-Muslim relations by telling the stories of the Muslims who came to France to live as Christians. Under what circumstances did they willingly convert? How successfully did they assimilate into French society? What forms of resistance did they employ? In examining questions like these, Jordan weaves a richly detailed portrait of a dazzling yet violent age whose lessons still resonate today.Until now, scholars have dismissed historical accounts of the king's peaceful conversion of Muslims as hagiographical and therefore untrustworthy. Jordan takes these narratives seriously-and uncovers archival evidence to back them up. He brings his findings marvelously to life in this succinct and compelling book, setting them in the context of the Seventh Crusade and the universalizing Catholic impulse to convert the world.

            As a collection of short stories, the emotional impact of The Valley Between is resounding. This is a story of obedience and purpose, sacrifice, faith and doubt. Every chapter of this journey speaks to a new summit in classic storytelling wisdom. Throughout his recollection, Nath...an brings new light to the weakness and power, sensitivity and potential of Godly masculinity. Is obedience as simple as a yes ? In this open-heart exploration of Christian submission and missionary work, Nathan points to places in the human spirit that touch us all. Every man and woman is a human in need. We all hike through sprawling gorges on our way from summit to summit, looking up at the towering peaks above us. God calls us from mountain to mountain through the valley trails on which our stories are written. As we strive from one summit to the next, we grow and mature on the trails of the valley between.

            The author, T. Lindsey-Billingsley, has compiled a no-nonsense philosophical study guide exploring racial origins, the African origins of humanity, and prehistoric Kemetic influence throughout the world. The main focus of these studies is on the anthropological and physiological ...makeup of racial groups, with indepth research into both the 'Out of Africa' theories and divine creationism myths. Billingsley supplies concrete evidence to support her conclusions on the true human experience, in lieu of, popular speculation and theory devoid of logic and sound proof. In this, and subsequent volumes, the author will establish a new perspective of thinking that will tempt you to challenge the validity of theological creationism and evolution, whilst substantiating a strong position on intelligent design and extraterrestrial intervention.

            Lent is not a time for excess, either of food, or of religion. It is a time to rid ourselves of what the poet George Herbert calls 'passion', which is not a burning desire to do good or the emotional dimension of life in general, but what we today would call the sort of suffering... caused by stress, tension or anxiety. Lent should be welcomed as a considered, slow and deep time, designed to generate a sense of spaciousness, and facilitate a deeper engagement with things that really matter. Jesus's sojourn in the wilderness was a time of fasting and restraint that led to a challenge which in turn led to clarity of purpose, resolution and focus. The point was not in the negativity of the experience, or the deprivations, but in the energy and the reorientation that resulted. Lent is a season when we can follow Jesus by pressing the 'pause' button, taking some time out, dealing with whatever then arises and praying for a new and deeper sense of clarity and purpose for our lives. The way to do this is not by adding to our tasks, complexifying our thinking or making an especially heroic effort, but by clearing our diaries and our minds, calming our hearts and our nerves, and simplifying all the practices of our faith - especially our prayer. This Lent book is intended to be a help and encouragement with prayer. It is not an expert's guide to techniques of prayer, nor is it a scholar's survey of prayer through the ages. Rather it is an invitation to deepen your relationship with the most well-known of all Christian prayers, the prayer that Jesus taught his disciples: the 'Lord's Prayer'.

            This book draws on a study of the Sunday Assembly- a godless congregation - to reflect on how the Church might better deal with suffering, lament and theodicy. Against a backdrop of a shifting attitudes towards religion, humans are now better connected than ever before. It is no ...exaggeration to suggest that we carry the suffering of the world in our pockets. In the midst of these intersecting issues, the Sunday Assembly provides insight into how meaning-making in times of trauma and crisis is changing. Drawing on practical theology and using ethnographic tools of investigation, this book includes findings from interviews and observation with the Sunday Assembly in London and Edinburgh. It explores the Sunday Assembly's philosophy of celebrating life, and what this means in practice. At times, this emphasis on celebration can result in situations where suffering is passed over, or only briefly acknowledged. In response, this book considers a similar tendency within white Protestant churches to avoid explicit discussion of difficult issues. This book challenges churches to consider how they might resist the avoidance of suffering through the practice of lament.The insights provided by this book will be of particular interest to scholars of Religious Studies, Practical Theology, Secularism and Atheism/Non-religion.

            Many have wondered if veganism is compatible with Christianity. Others have asserted that animals were put here for humans to use and eat. The Scripture plainly reveals God's eternal will for humans and animals, what He originally intended them to eat, and how He wanted them to i...nteract with one another. This book lays out a plain case for the compassion, love, and mercy that is the foundation of the Christian faith and how that applies to our dealings with animals. If you are a Christian who ever wondered about veganism this is the book for you!
