"This book introduces one of the worlds religions in today's United States of America. Most, though not all, Americans say they are religious, and the world's religions flourish in today's America. And God most of us Americans really do trust. But each does so in their own special way, and that is what makes religion in America interesting. Religion is a native category for Americans, as the First Amendment makes explicit; and to understand America, we have to understand religion. What is at stake in the study of it any particular religion in this country is their understanding of what happens to religion in America, and what we learned about America from how we practice our various religions here.. and to understand America, we have to understand religion. What is at stake in the study of any particular religion in this country is the understanding of what happens to religion in America, and what we learn about America from how we practice our various religions here...." - Introduction from Fortress Introduction to American Judaism: What the Books Say, What the People Do

The Books And The Parchments

By F. F. Bruce, M.A.

This book is in good condition. There is significant wear on the front, back, spine and edges of the cover boards. The corners are also bumped. The gilding on the spine is rubbed and faded. The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board and his seal is stamped on the first end page and the first title page. The pages are yellowed and tanned. There are some markings on the pages, but it still is definitely a good read. "This volume gathers together a number of articles written and papers read at various times on the transmission of the Bible. It is intended for non-specialists like those who have read them or heard them in their earlier forms, and who have frequently expressed a desire to have them in this form...." - Preface from The Books And The Parchments: Some Chapters On The Transmission Of The Bible

The Temple

By Reverend Dr. Edersheim

This book is in good condition. The cover is worn as well as the corners and the edges. The previous owners name is written on the first page.Im not sure of the age of this book, because it was not listed. However, if circa 1900, is correct, that would make this boo an antique. Jerusalem's temple represented not only the glory of Israel's past but the splendor of its future, when the Messiah would come and reign over God's people. To recapture the essence of the temple's significance, both in the life of Israel and in the life and theology of the early Christians, readers are fortunate indeed to have as a tour guide that eminent scholar of Judaism and the New Testament, Alfred Edersheim. Readers who want to experience the grandeur of Herod's temple - the temple that Jesus "cleansed" - or the anguish of a temple trodden by Roman soldiers will appreciate Edersheim's knowledge of and passion for the temple of Scripture. Readers will also welcome this newly typeset, highly readable edition with illustrations and marginal references from Scripture, Philo, Josephus, and the Mishnah.
