              Paganism is back and its loud. Widely regarded as rationalized out of the West, paganism is rapidly becoming a religious, creative, and political force internationally. It has found its most public expression in popular music, where it now influences singers and musicians across ...rock, folk, techno, goth, metal, Celtic, world, and pop music. With essays ranging widely across the US, UK, continental Europe, Australia and Asia, Pop Pagans examines the histories, genres, performances, and communities of pagan popular music. Pagan music has a history, one often connected with specific sites or places. Over time, it became associated with the counter culture, satanic and gothic culture, rave and festival culture, ecological consciousness and spirituality, and new ageism. Paganism has used music to become a powerful and transgressive force in everyday life. Pop Pagans examines the many artists and movements which have contributed to this growing phenomenon.

              Why is the set of human beliefs and behaviours that we call 'religion' such a widespread feature of all known human societies, past and present, and why are there so many forms of religiosity found throughout history and culture? Mental Culture brings together an international ra...nge of scholars from Anthropology, History, Psychology, Philosophy, and Religious Studies to answer these questions. Connecting classical theories and approaches with the newly established field of the Cognitive Science of Religion, the aim of Mental Culture is to provide scholars and students of religion with an overview of contemporary scientific approaches to religion while tracing their intellectual development to some of the great thinkers of the past.

              Phenomenal Amble Magnetism
               

              Phenomenal Amble Magnetism (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Preston, Desmond M.

              Phenomenal Amble Magnetism is the first book of poems by writer, poet, and film maker Desmond Preston. In it, he explores the magnetism between those of us that stand out, and those of us that blend in. He amplifies this contrast by challenging the conventions of not only poetry,... but the poets themselves. Desmond believes that the only box that people fit in is the one they place themselves into; he attempts to set a foundation for this belief by being the example. Within this collection, you will find an assortment of styles, techniques, and poems of varying subject matter: all given an equal amount of attention to detail, and all written with the intent of examining and furthering the understanding of the magnetism between the phenomenal and the amble.

              Writing the Bible: Scribes, Scribalism and Script (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              For many years it has been recognized that the key to explaining the production of the Bible lies in understanding the profession, the practice and the mentality of scribes in the ancient Near East, classical Greece and the Greco-Roman world. In many ways, however, the production... of the Jewish literary canon, while reflecting wider practice, constitutes an exception because of its religious function as the written word of God, leading in turn to the veneration of scrolls as sacred and even cultic objects in themselves. Writing the Bible brings together the wide-ranging study of all major aspects of ancient writing and writers. The essays cover the dissemination of texts, book and canon formation, and the social and political effects of writing and of textual knowledge. Central issues discussed include the status of the scribe, the nature of authorship, the relationship between copying and redacting, and the relative status of oral and written knowledge. The writers examined include Ilimilku of Ugarit, the scribes of ancient Greece, Ben Sira, Galen, Origen and the author of Pseudo-Clement.
