Women with 2020 Vision
American Theologians on the Voice, Vote, and Vision of Women
Women haven't always had the right to vote. From such diverse voices as John Stuart Mill and Cokie Roberts, the absolute right of both women and men to vote has been affirmed. In this exciting volume, thirteen theologians and religious leaders in America look back at the historic victory in 1920 when women in the United States won the right to vote. They then assess the current situation, and speak into the future.
Why Do All Our Friends Look Just Like Us?
Tribe explores the issues of reciprocity in cross-race and cross-class relationships using stories, narrative, and sociological insights and perspectives derived from urban fieldwork and the author's own life. The volume examines the social and structural barriers to the formation of these kinds of relationships, as well as the transformations that can take place as these barriers are overcome.
The Hermeneia Translation
The book of Jubilees (2nd century BCE) retraces the book of Genesis and parts of Exodus and is one of the earliest sustained commentaries on the narratives presented in those texts. The translation is drawn from the author's monumental two-volume Hermeneia commentary and takes into account all of the textual data now available. The translation is accompanied by carefully selected notes that illuminate the text and is ideal for classroom use.
