On the Relationship between Catholicism and Marxism By Kieran James & Jenny Kwai-Sim Leung
Paperback: $3.34
Prints in 3-5 business days
This short book contains a previously unpublished article of personal reflections on the relationship between Catholicism and Marxism. The book includes a critique of the Social Teaching encyclicals... More > written by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and Pope John Paul II in the 1980s. Our conclusion is that it is completely possible, although at times existentially challenging, to be a Roman Catholic-Marxist. We will see how John Paul II subtly incorporated some of the key ideas of the liberation theologians into the official body of Roman Catholic Social Teaching after 1986. This book should help younger researchers who might be interested in but are struggling with Catholic Social Teaching and/or Marxism in either theoretical and/or practical realms.< Less
Money Doctrines – Traditional versus Word of Faith Teaching By Kieran James & Christopher Tolliday
Paperback: $3.86
Prints in 3-5 business days
There has been a significant volume of scholarly work conducted recently within the accounting literature on the role of money, investment and accounting within religious organizations. However,... More > scant attention has been paid to modern Pentecostal understandings of money, investment and accounting. In this book we study the major money-related doctrines of American husband-and-wife televangelist Faith Teachers Kenneth and Gloria Copeland. We find the unique Copeland interpretation of “Treasures in Heaven” (Matthew 6:20) to be a complete inversion of the traditional or Anglican theological interpretation. While the traditional interpretation is that this verse refers to future rewards available after death, the Copelands argue that it refers to rewards existing now in the heavenly places in what they refer to as the believer’s “heavenly bank account”. The Copelands also believe in a literal “hundredfold return” on monetary and other gifts made “for the gospel’s sake” (Mark 10:29-30).< Less

Metallica By Kieran James & Christopher Tolliday
Paperback: $4.47
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book was written mostly in calendar year 2008 either before the Death Magnetic album had been released or after it was released but before we had heard it. It reflects the anger and betrayal... More > many fans of our generation, who had supported Metallica since Ride the Lightning days or even earlier, felt because of the Napster incident of 2000-2001 and the abysmal St. Anger album of 2003. We don’t have this level of anger towards the band anymore. Maybe writing the article (as it was then) was a cathartic process. We admit that it was somewhat enjoyable bashing Lars Ulrich over the head with a weighty copy of Karl Marx’s 1,100 page opus Capital Volume 1. Like Marx’s Capital, our book was a product of its time. Please enjoy this book because it reflects the real anger towards Metallica which many older fans of the band were feeling in that time between the releases of St. Anger in 2003 and Death Magnetic in 2008.< Less
KISS and the Ideology of the American Dream By Kieran James et al.
Hardcover: $18.78

This book is a collective effort on the authors’ part to remember KISS, one of the most important hard-rock bands of the 1970s and 1980s. Influenced by the glam-rock movement which preceded its... More > rise, arguably KISS was the first major act in rock music history to present rock music as Entertainment Product firstly and music only secondarily. We discuss the original, democratic concept of the Fab Four - Gene, Paul, Ace, and Peter - as well as Gene Simmons’ and Paul Stanley’s subsequent American Dream ideology. We go on to analyse the current version of the band in the light of the original line-up and appearance. We find that the KISS fan base is divided with some fans accepting Simmons’ current view that the four personas can be utilized by anyone chosen by the band’s leadership; a second group which tries to correct the alleged historical injustices committed against Frehley and Criss; and a third group which is cynical about the current version of KISS but finds it fruitless to rehash old debates.< Less
