Converting California: Indians and Franciscans in the Missions Free ShippingFrom $64.18
This book is a compelling and balanced history of the California missions and their impact on the Indians they tried to convert. Focusing primarily on the religious conflict between the two groups, it sheds new light on the tensions, accomplishments, and limitations of the California mission experience. James A. Sandos, an eminent authority on the American West, traces the history of the Franciscan missions from the creation of the first one in 1769 until they were turned over to the public in 1836. Addressing such topics as the singular theology of the missions, the role of music in bonding Indians to Franciscan enterprises, the diseases caused by contact with the missions, and the Indian resistance to missionary activity, Sandos not only describes what happened in the California missions but offers a persuasive explanation for why it happened.

Laughter at the Foot of the Cross Free ShippingFrom $41.43
"Christian laughter is a maze: you could easily get snarled up within it." So says Michael A. Screech in his note to readers preceding this collection of fifty-three elegant and pithy essays. As Screech reveals, the question of whether laughter is acceptable to the god of the Old and New Testaments is a dangerous one. But we are fortunate in our guide: drawing on his immense knowledge of the classics and of humanists like Erasmus and Rabelais - who used Plato and Aristotle to interpret the Gospels - and incorporating the thoughts of Aesop, Calvin, Lucian of Samosata, Luther, Socrates, and others, Screech shows that Renaissance thinkers revived ancient ideas about what inspires laughter and whether it could ever truly be innocent. As Screech argues, in the minds of Renaissance scholars, laughter was to be taken very seriously. Indeed, in an era obsessed with heresy and reform, this most human of abilities was no laughing matter.
The Chosen Few Free ShippingFrom $38.48
In 70 CE, the Jews were an agrarian and illiterate people living mostly in the Land of Israel and Mesopotamia. By 1492 the Jewish people had become a small group of literate urbanites specializing in crafts, trade, moneylending, and medicine in hundreds of places across the Old World, from Seville to Mangalore. What caused this radical change? The Chosen Few presents a new answer to this question by applying the lens of economic analysis to the key facts of fifteen formative centuries of Jewish history. Maristella Botticini and Zvi Eckstein offer a powerful new explanation of one of the most significant transformations in Jewish history while also providing fresh insights into the growing debate about the social and economic impact of religion.

The End of Suffering and the Discovery of Happiness Free ShippingFrom $19.6
'A remarkable and rare overview of the key aspects of Tibetan Buddhism provided by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, 'The End of Suffering and the Discovery of Happiness' presents a clear and straightforward road map for how we might end our experience of suffering and discover happiness, drawn by the most celebrated spiritual master of Buddhism - His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. In this insightful volume, he not only describes what religion can contribute to mankind, but also accentuates the significance of truly practicing religion and understanding what it is that mankind really needs. His Holiness explains the three turnings of the wheel of Dharma; the purpose and the means of generating the mind of enlightenment; and the twelve links of dependent arising, as well as other preliminary concepts. Tsongkhapa's 'The Three Principal Aspects of the Path' and 'The Stages of the Path to Enlightenment' have also been beautifully described in great detail. In 'The End of Suffering and the Discovery of Happiness,' His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, renowned for his warm-heartedness and his message of love, compassion, and peace offers an illuminating glimpse into the core of Tibetan Buddhism.
Eager to Love Free ShippingFrom $34.33
Francis of Assisi is one of the most beloved of all saints. Both traditional and entirely revolutionary, he was a paradox. He was at once down to earth and reaching toward heaven, grounded in the rich history of the Church while moving toward a new understanding of the world beyond. Richard Rohr, himself a Franciscan friar, draws on Scripture, insights from psychology, and literary and artistic references, to weave together an understanding of the tradition as first practiced by St Francis. Rohr shows how his own innovative theology is firmly grounded in the life and teaching of this great saint and provides a perspective on how his alternative path to the divine can deepen and enrich our spiritual lives.
Blood Kin of Jesus: James and the Lost Jewish Church Free ShippingFrom $36.51
Bringing together recent archeological discoveries and the best contemporary scholarship, Kenneth Hanson, Ph.D. tells a fascinating story that goes mostly untold in the New Testament about the ultimate fate of Jesus mother, brothers, sisters, and closest followers. The story of the Jerusalem Church led by Jesus brother James is dropped as the scriptural spotlight follows the ministry of Paul. Now, using the latest discoveries, including some of his own original research, Professor Hanson picks up the story where the Bible leaves off, answering a question that many Christians have long asked: Whatever happened to Jesus family and this original Christian movement based in Jerusalem?
