Christiansa form a significant proportion of the Arab minority living within Israel, and many Christian Palestinians have occupied important economic and political positions.a This book explores the complicated position of Christian Palestinians within Israel.a It shows how analyses which characterise the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a Jewish-Muslim conflict fail to take account of the full picuture, as do analyses which argue that Christian Palestinians' primary identity lies with a wider transnational Christian community.a It outlines how the Christian Palestinian community has developed, and where it is concentrated, examines conflicts between Christian and Muslim Palestinians and between Christian Palestinians and Druzes, discusses church-state relations, showing how the church's influence has declined, and assesses how far the Israeli state favours Christians over other Palestinians, thereby revealing a great dal about state-minority realtions within Israel and the extent to which Israel is a Jewish ethnocratic state.
A Devotional based on the Ten Commandments that will help lead discussions on the possibility of Christians living today's society while following Gods' Laws. A wonderful Devotional for youth groups; young adults; and new Christians. Also a great study guide for mature believers looking for a new look at a part of Christianity they have taken for granted.
There's a Quiet Revolution in Christianity... Has it always seemed strange to you that the church is divided into denominations that argue with and judge one another rather than embodying the love of God? Are you uncomfortable around Christians who seem more interested in being right than in showing compassion to others? Are you frequently preoccupied with how to help heal the societal divisions of race, gender, and culture that cause pain in our world? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you're already moving toward the powerful yet almost imperceptible movement that continues to grow and claim followers. You're becoming a Type J Christian...a Christian who exalts the commandments of Jesus. Type J Christians are guided by love-love of God, self, and neighbor. They believe that each person should share and benefit from the bounty of God. Type J Christians know that as spiritual beings in Christ, we are all of the same spiritual blood-we have "Type J" blood, which is the blood of Jesus cleansing, anointing, and uniting us. If you're ready to walk away from the hard-hearted, the mean-spirited, and the unforgiving, then Type J Christianity is calling to you. We are one in spirit in the Kingdom of God, beyond denominations, doctrines, and creeds. Type J Christians: A New Breed of Christian is your manual to follow God, with LOVE to guide your life.
