            The Bible is full of ancient texts long predating the assembly of Judaism's and Christianity's sacred books. Why these texts, and how were they transformed on the journey from folk tale to holy writ? Konrad Schmid and Jens Schroeter unearth the history, in the process overturning... assumptions about the relationship between the Old and New Testaments.

            The Best Catholics in the World: The Irish, the Church and the End of a Special Relationship

            When Berlin-based journalist Derek Scally goes to the Christmas Vigil Mass on a visit home to Dublin, the once-packed suburban church where he was altar boy is quiet and ageing like its congregants. The dwindling power of the Church in Ireland is undeniable. Scally sees that the ...Irish are dealing with just as great a shock to their sense of collective identity as the East Germans after the fall of Communism. The Best Catholics in the World is Scally's response - an empathetic and engaging voyage into the story of Irish Catholicism: why the Church had a unique hold on the Irish; what went wrong; and how the Irish are facing - or not facing - a relationship that was dysfunctional in many respects. Researched over two years, and including dozens of interviews conducted in Ireland and further afield, The Best Catholics in the World is a lively, original, moving and thought-provoking account of a country grappling with its troubling past and confusing present.

            Where the Light Fell: A Memoir
             

            Where the Light Fell: A Memoir (Hardback)

            For the first time, bestselling author Philip Yancey tells the story of his coming of age in the fundamentalist South--a family drama in the tradition of Educated and Hillbilly Elegy that explores the dark side of extremist Christian faith and chronicles the journey of one of the... most influential religious writers of our time. Raised by an impoverished widow who earned room and board as a Bible teacher in 1950s Atlanta, Philip Yancey and his brother, Marshall, found ways to venture out beyond the confines of their eight-foot-wide trailer. But when Yancey was in college, he uncovered a shocking secret about his father's death--a secret that began to illuminate the motivations that drove his mother to extreme, often hostile religious convictions and a belief that her sons had been ordained for a divine cause. Searching for answers, Yancey dives into his family origins, taking us on an evocative journey from the backwoods of the Bible Belt to the bustling streets of Philadelphia; from trailer parks to church sanctuaries; from family oddballs to fire-and-brimstone preachers and childhood awakenings through nature, music, and literature. In time, the weight of religious and family pressure sent both sons on opposite journeys--one toward healing from the impact of what he calls a toxic faith; the other into a self-destructive spiral. Where the Light Fell is a gripping family narrative set against a turbulent time in post-World War II America, shaped by the collision of Southern fundamentalism and the mounting pressures of the civil rights movement and sixties-era forces of social change. In piecing together his fragmented personal history and his journey to redemption, Yancey gives testament to the enduring power of our search for truth and the possibility of faith rooted in grace instead of fear. I truly believe this is the one book I was put on earth to write, says Yancey. So many of the strands from my childhood--racial hostility, political division, culture wars--have

            He was a lanky, handsome, girl-crazed dairyman's son from North Carolina who wanted to become a major league baseball player. Nothing more than that. Yet he ended up becoming history's best-known evangelist and one of the most powerful religious figures of all time. Billy Graham ...was a country preacher who became an American institution for almost six decades--counseling presidents, world leaders, Hollywood stars, the queen of England, gangsters, soldiers, and the common man alike. He was a modern-day prophet who helped heal America in the most trying times--including desegregation, Watergate, Vietnam, the Oklahoma City bombing, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and Hurricane Katrina. This humble man of God preached to more than eighty million people in person and two billion on live broadcasts at more than four hundred Crusades and global conferences. He reached countless billions more through television, newspapers, radio, books, and film. Billy Graham: The Man I Knew is a detailed recounting of Graham's extraordinary life through the eyes of fellow evangelist Greg Laurie. This book offers to readers how Graham grew up, his desires as a young man, and his reluctant transformation into an obedient and humble voice of the Lord and shepherd to needy people. Here is his vision for humanity and how he achieved so much in his ninety-nine years on this earth. Pastor, evangelist, and author Greg Laurie, who was a close friend to Graham for more than a quarter-century, presents a warm yet historically accurate portrait of the man, offering candid, keen, one-of-a-kind insights into America's Preacher and the most important minister of the twentieth century. Billy Graham was known for his relentless Gospel preaching that stands apart in history. He's celebrated as the greatest of all evangelists. Believing that Christ belongs to all people, Graham spoke to all religions, races, and nationalities, believing that lost people everywhere hunger for God's Word and personal salvation.
