Book Summary:

Fortalitium fidei is one of the central texts in the controversy surrounding the religious and social status of conversos in fifteenth-century Castile. This monograph provides a close analysis of the text itself and contextualizes this study through comparison with pro-converso texts and with reference to Alonso de Espina's career as an Observant Franciscan. After an outline of the development of the converso problem, it offers a biography of Espina and a discussion of the context of production of Fortalitium fidei. There is then a discussion of three works of theology in defence of conversos: Alonso de Cartagena's Defensorium unitatis christianae, Juan de Torquemada's Tractatus contra madianitas et ismaelitas, and Alonso de Oropesa's Lumen ad revelationem gentium. The rest of the work is detailed reading of Fortalitium fidei, with chapters on the image of the fortress, the treatment of Jews and Judaism, and of conversos. This volume addresses the extent and nature of the debate about conversos, the development of models of genealogical exclusion, and the role of Espina and his text in the ending of religious plurality in Spain.

On the one hand, this book will introduce us, who are living in the last-days (of the world), to important personalities whose existence and qualities we need to be aware of, as well as to important books that will be our guides to the truth; on the other hand, it will be a companion and very powerful means of service for us, that will hold our hand and take us to an unprecedented spiritual world, which is called "Risale-i Nur Classroom (Dersane)" and which lets us taste the moral pleasures of Heaven in this world.

This book, with its rich and original content, will show you, in an imaginary fashion, an utterly different world. You will read the astonishing and extraordinary story of a genius who is admired with his life, in the light of information that is brought together from different sources and can’t be found everywhere. You will make acquaintance to the magnificent activities of a spiritual school that has never physically come to existence, Spiritual Medresetüzzehra", which has the capacity of making serious contribution to the mental transformation that we need as a society. You will witness how Risale-i Nur has taken the people from every walk of society under its irresistible astonishing influence with an unprecedented educational campaign despite unfavourable conditions and you will learn how it has taken its place in the arena of science and knowledge as an unprecedented social reality a guide of truth and as a book which rebuilds (the characteristics of) its readers, having them read itself for a lifetime, and you will be trilled and lost in amazement. Furthermore, in this extended version, you will find a very rich content where Bediüzzaman's ideas on politics and government actions and his opinions on M. Kemal are discussed with a very different approach and an intellectual point of view. The epilogue entitled "Your Journey Has Just Begun" of our book, "A Journey for the Discovery of an Extraordinary Treasure: Risale-i Nur Training Program" is included in this work as it contains sensitive, striking and impressive findings, sincerely coming from the depths of the heart, about reading Risale-i Nur and participating in classes of Risale-i Nur. We would like you to accompany us in this imaginary and mental journey of discovery. There is only one fixed price for a ticket of the Journey: A strong sense of wonder in the search for truth.

Book Summary:

This book proposes that the idea of the Jews in European cultures has little to do with actual Jews, but rather is derived from the conception of Jews as Christianity's paradigmatic Other, eternally reenacting their morally ambiguous New Testament role as the Christ-bearing and -killing chosen people of God. Through new readings of canonical Russian literary texts by Gogol, Turgenev, Chekhov, Babel, and others, the author argues that these European writers—Christian, secular, and Jewish—based their representation of Jews on the Christian exegetical tradition of anti-Judaism. Indeed, Livak disputes the classification of some Jewish writers as belonging to "Jewish literature," arguing that such an approach obscures these writers' debt to European literary traditions and their ambivalence about their Jewishness. This work seeks to move the study of Russian literature, and Russian-Jewish literature in particular, down a new path. It will stir up controversy around Christian-Jewish cultural interaction; the representation of otherness in European arts and folklore; modern Jewish experience; and Russian literature and culture.

Book Summary:

In The Truth Is the Way, Christopher Ben Simpson presents Kierkegaard's work as a theologia viatorum, a theology to guide one on life's way. This truth that is the way is at once existential, metaphysical, and theological - the highest truth is a living in accord with reality that is revealed to us and enabled in us by Jesus Christ. This picture of Kierkegaard's thought, drawing on the whole of his published corpus, presents his perspectives (by way of prolegomena) on the nature of truth, of communication and of faith and (more substantially) his guiding vision of the world, God, humanity, and Christ, culminating in Kierkegaard's understanding of the manner of life lived in light of this vision - of a journey walked in the virtues of patience, faith, hope, and love toward a life of joy in the midst of suffering, of communion with oneself, with God, with others.

Book Summary:

If you’re interested in Church-related events on the American Samoan islands during the early twenty-first century, then you need this book. Following up on his first book on the history of the Assemblies of God Church in American Samoa, author Fuimaono Fini Aitaoto delves deeper into church life on these South Pacific islands. Geared for Bible college students, pastors, and researchers, he answers questions such as: • What role has Christianity played in the lives of most Samoans? • What notable changes have recently occurred within American Samoa’s churches? • What is the financial condition of various churches? • What role does politics play in church life? While there is ample literature on the history and developments of churches in American Samoa and the Pacific from the late 1800s to the 1980s, there are not nearly as many resources updating the world on new church developments. This book fills that void.

Book Summary:

A believer is a devoted individual who has submitted his soul to its true owner. Faith is the greatest reality in the universe. It is a light that enters the heart through the guidance of God and transforms its fortunate bearer into a person of responsibility. This noble responsibility manifests itself as sincere efforts exerted on the sanctified path of God and venerable behavior propelled by good manners. Faith is a covenant made between God and His servants. All believers are obligated to keep their promise to God and behave in a manner of being aware of their responsibilities. A believer's path is the path of the righteous, his aim is to uphold the truth, and his objective is to seek the pleasure of God with every blink of an eye. This is the wisdom of having freewill and being human necessitates this sacred philanthropy and altruism. This book is based on various essays and narrative stories that illustrate the profundity of faith and the unique qualities of a devoted soul who has dedicated himself to serving God.
