Download PDF Saints and Sinners by Lawrence Wright and published by Vintage. This book was released on 2011-05-04 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this fascinating book about religion in America, one of this country's most probing yet sympathetic journalists puts forth stories not only of real grace but of despair, sexual scandal, and attempted murder. Lawrence Wright's Saints and Sinners are Jimmy Swaggart, who preached a hellfire gospel with rock 'n' roll abandon before he was caught with a, prostitute in a seedy motel; Anton LaVey, the kitsch-loving, gleefully fraudulent founder of the First Church of Satan; Madalyn Murray O'Hair, whose litigious atheism sometimes resembled a brand of faith; Matthew Fox, the Dominican priest who has aroused the fury of the Vatican for dismissing the doctrine of original sin and denouncing the church as a dysfunctional family; Walker Railey, the rising star of Dallas's Methodist church, who, at the pinnacle of his success, was suspected of attempting to murder his wife; and Will Campbell, the eccentric liberal Southern Baptist preacher whose challenges to established ways of thinking have made him a legend in his own time. By letting us listen to their voices and see the individuals in all their complexities, Lawrence Wright has written a richly fascinating book about the passions, triumphs, and failures of the life of faith.

Download PDF Saints & Sinners by Antti P. Balk and published by Thelema Publications. This book was released on 2008 with total page 798 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It is said that history is written by the victors. Does that make them even partly right? Or, more to the point, even a little interesting? Of course not. This unique look at history begins with an alternative Genesis as it were, elaborately recounting the birth of human civilization through the vehicle of ancient Egyptian deities, albeit in light of the most recent knowledge on arch?ology, anthropology, linguistics, sociology, comparative religion, political science, and general history. It moves quickly but seamlessly to Greece via Crete, revealing the relatively young age of Continental European (and thus all Western) culture, science, art, and religion, and their highly derivative nature?a point subtly repeated throughout this astonishingly wide-ranging work. As the title suggests, this is a book of contrasts, constantly comparing not only the Saints and the Sinners, but the East and the West, be the issues dealt with political or religious; in most cases, the one cannot be separated from the other. The phrase ?I come not to bring peace, but to bring a sword? certainly summarizes the history of mainline Christianity. But did Jesus even exist? And if he did, was he just re-enacting ancient myths and repeating old sayings? And what of Mohammed? Was he a false prophet, the Last Prophet, or just our for profit? The author does not presume to pass such judgement, only to relate the events as they happened, the facts as they stand, even if many of them are little known ones, conspicuous by their absence in standard school history books. He purports to offer a self-critique of Western culture by a cultured Westerner, a task made all the more challenging by the current, precarious world political situation. Factual without being dry, educational without being condescending, the Saints & Sinners debunks myths without destroying the mystery.

Download PDF "Saints, Sinners, and Sisters " by JaneL. Carroll and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-07-05 with total page 298 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A collection of original essays, Saints, Sinners, and Sisters showcases the diverse questions currently being asked by gender scholars dealing with French, Netherlandish and German art from the medieval and early modern periods. Moving beyond the reclamation of personalities and oeuvres of 'lost' female artists, the contributors pose questions about gender and sex within specific historical contexts, addressing such issues as intended audience, use of the object, and patronage. These avenues of inquiry intersect with larger cultural questions concerning societal control of women. The book's three sections, 'Saints,' 'Sinners,' and 'Sisters, Wives, Poets' are each preceded by a concise introductory essay, detailing themes and offering reflective comparisons of theses and information. In 'Saints,' contributors look at women who were positive exemplar used by society to uphold standards. In the second section, the essays focus on the power of women's sexuality. The third section expands beyond the customary dichotomous division of the first two to examine women in diverse roles not widely studied as positions of women in those times. This final section expands our definitions of women's responsibilities and realigns them historically; it argues that women, and thus gender, need to be understood within a much broader historical context and beyond simplistic approaches sometimes superimposed by present-day readers on past times. This volume answers an acute need for research on the art of Northern Europe prior to the 20th century, and highlights the possibilities of new directions in the field. The effect of the new scholarship presented here is to broaden the discursive field, allowing fluidity of disciplinary boundaries, resulting in a volume that is illuminating to historians of more than art alone.
