RELIGION: A MOSAIC By Louis Hammann
Hardcover: $25.00
Ships in 6-8 business days.
Can we say of Religion what the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy said of Economics: It is not one homogeneous enterprise? If so, then what is religion as a plural phenomenon? Should we... More > understand religious traditions as carriers of revealed truth in the current age of empirical science? Or should we appreciate the power of the human imagination to satisfy our curiosity? Can human ingenuity reconcile the psychological and historical biases of religious traditions? Can we see them as both individual and communal realities? I propose to understand religious traditions under the rubric of a metaphor. They are mosaics, subtle designs of human experiences—designs that have emerged from the human struggle of coping with the constant impulse to make sense of life. Human ingenuity is capable of creating counter-cultural communities that persist as chains of memory. Their historical function is celebrating relationships that define our destiny and who we are.< Less

Tithing By A. W. Pink
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Download immediately.
In his book Tithing, A.W. Pink uses the Bible as a guide to Christian giving. In Leviticus, the Mosaic Law was given to God's people, and the obligation to tithe was clearly stated within it. But... More > Pink shows us that even long before the Law was handed down at Sinai, God's people tithed in the form of sacrifices. Pink notes several passages in the Old and New Testament where God shows his disappointment with those who fail to give back to him. In the New Testament, we see that God places today's Christians under an even stronger obligation to tithe. Pink speaks directly to those who, as a result of their ignorance, laziness, financial distress, or pride believe that the call to tithe does not apply to them. Pink gives these readers practical advice which helps make tithing meaningful and manageable. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
