The Garments of Torah – Essays in Biblical Hermeneutics
" A Biblical view of Defilement" depicts the author's exegetical skills by which he vividly presents first century Jewish perception and practise of defilement that replicates itself in the twenty-first century in a Kenyan village. If you want to see how tribalism in Kenya portrays the predicament of human kind as a result of seeking selfish motivated righteousness much in the same way as the first century Jews regarded the Gentiles as unclean people and therefore unacceptable to God and society, then see for yourself how the author of this book brings out this compelling reality from page to page.
"I Wish Someone Were Waiting for Me Somewhere" explores how a life can be changed irrevocably in just one fateful moment. A pregnant mother's plans for the future unravel at the hospital; a travelling salesman learns the consequences of an almost-missed exit on the motorway in the newspaper the next morning; while a perfect date is spoilt by a single act of thoughtlessness. In those crucial moments Cavalda demonstrates her almost magical skill in conveying love, lust, longing and loneliness.
Not in Heaven – Cohrence & Complexity in Biblical Narrative
For decades the Magistrate has run the affairs of a tiny frontier settlement, ignoring the impending war between the barbarians and the Empire, whose servant he is. But when the interrogation experts arrive, he is jolted into sympathy with the victims and into a quixotic act of rebellion which lands him in prison, branded as an enemy of the state. Waiting for the Barbarians is an allegory of oppressor and oppressed. Not just a man living through a crisis of conscience in an obscure place in remote times, the Magistrate is an analogue of all men living in complicity with regimes that ignore justice and decency.

Revision with unchanged content. The archeologist Maria Gimbutas left us the gift of symbols and images she found in ancient burial sites of the goddess. From a Jungian perspective this symbolism is related to archetypes which are built into the design of every human being. Feminist theory shows the need for new models solely related women’s experience. This book is a guided tour of young women’s responses to ancient symbols as seen in archetypal images of six dark goddesses. The work unveils their longing for a set of myths, icons and symbols that are particularly female and empowering. Along that way hidden fears and pains can be revealed and the power they hold can be released. This book introduces a new vision of the archetypal feminine seen through the eyes of young women. Psychologists, sociologists, archeologists and theologians as well as anyone who has struggled with love and loss will benefit from this work.
A global and pioneering leader of progressive Christianity and the bestselling author of Why Christianity Must Change or Die and Eternal Life explains why a literal reading of the Gospels is actually heretical, and how this mistaken notion only entered the church once Gentiles had pushed out all the Jewish followers of Jesus. A man who has consciously and deliberately walked the path of Christ, John Shelby Spong has lived his entire life inside the Christian Church. In this profound and considered work, he offers a radical new way to look at the gospels today as he shows just how deeply Jewish the Christian Gospels are and how much they reflect the Jewish scriptures, history, and patterns of worship. Pulling back the layers of a long-standing Gentile ignorance, he reveals how the church’s literal reading of the Bible is so far removed from these original Jewish authors’ intent that it is an act of heresy. Using the Gospel of Matthew as a guide, Spong explores the Bible’s literary and liturgical roots—its grounding in Jewish culture, symbols, icons, and storytelling tradition—to explain how the events of Jesus’ life, including the virgin birth, the miracles, the details of the passion story, and the resurrection and ascension, would have been understood by both the Jewish authors of the various gospels and by the Jewish audiences for which they were originally written. Spong makes clear that it was only after the church became fully Gentile that readers of the Gospels took these stories to be factual, distorting their original meaning. In Biblical Literalism: A Gentile Heresy, Spong illuminates the gospels as never before and provides a better blueprint for the future than where the church’s leaden and heretical reading of the story of Jesus has led us—one that allows the faithful to live inside the Christian story in the modern world.

Кугел Д. В доме Потифара. Библейский текст и его перевоплощение / In Potiphar`s house. The Interpretive Life of Biblical Texts
Castle Waiting is the story of an isolated, abandoned castle, and the eccentric inhabitants who bring it back to life. A fable for modern times, it is a fairy tale that?s not about rescuing the princess, saving the kingdom, or fighting the ultimate war between Good and Evil ? but about being a hero in your own home. The opening chapter tells the origin of the castle itself, which is abandoned by its princess in a comic twist on ?Sleeping Beauty? when she rides off into the sunset with her Prince Charming. The castle becomes a refuge for misfits, outcasts, and others seeking sanctuary, playing host to a lively and colorful cast of characters that inhabits the subsequent stories, including a talking anthropomorphic horse, a mysteriously pregnant Lady on the run, and a bearded nun.
