What is it like to be a preacher or rabbi who no longer believes in God? In this expanded and updated edition of their groundbreaking study, Daniel C. Dennett and Linda LaScola comprehensively and sensitively expose an inconvenient truth that religious institutions face in the new transparency of the information age - the phenomenon of clergy who no longer believe what they publicly preach. In confidential interviews, clergy from across the ministerial spectrum - from liberal to literal - reveal how their lives of religious service and study have led them to a truth inimical to their professed beliefs and profession. Although their personal stories are as varied as the denominations they once represented, or continue to represent - whether Catholic, Baptist, Episcopalian, Methodist, Mormon, Pentecostal, or any of numerous others - they give voice not only to their own struggles but also to those who similarly suffer in tender and lonely silence. As this study poignantly and vividly reveals, their common journey has far-reaching implications not only for their families, their congregations, and their communities - but also for the very future of religion. 1.

Brash, brilliant, handsome Nicholas Deketomis has built a highly successful career as a lawyer, protecting the rights of the innocent while winning multibillion-dollar lawsuits from the powers that be. "Deke" may have come from the wrong side of the tracks, but he's built a wonderful life for his close-knit family. His wife and two children live in a beautiful house in a seaside community along the Florida Panhandle. But their comfortable life is endangered. In the midst of a highly contentious lawsuit against a powerful pharmaceutical company, as well as publicly advocating for a liberal Florida State Senate candidate, this time Deke may have riled the wrong powerbrokers. Scheming against him are a local Bible-thumping preacher, an ambitious district attorney, and two malicious brothers running one of the country's biggest oil corporations. A vile conspiracy is hatched to bring down Deketomis; setting him up and attempting to convict him on a bogus murder charge would solve many of their problems. Deke is in the trial of his life, which quickly becomes a media circus. But this good man will not go down without a bruising fight - especially when he finds his family threatened. And just as it seems that his enemies may have him cornered, he finds help from the unlikeliest source. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeffrey Kafer.

Three misfits come together to avenge the rape of a fellow classmate and in the process trigger a change in the misogynist culture at their high school, transforming the lives of everyone around them in this searing and timely story. Who are the Nowhere Girls? They're everygirl. But they start with just three: Grace Salter is the new girl in town whose family was run out of their former community after her Southern Baptist preacher mom turned into a radical liberal after falling off a horse and bumping her head. Rosina Suarez is the queer punk girl in a conservative Mexican immigrant family who dreams of a life playing music instead of babysitting her gaggle of cousins and waitressing at her uncle's restaurant. Erin Delillo is obsessed with two things: marine biology and Star Trek: The Next Generation, but they aren't enough to distract her from her suspicion that she may in fact be an android. When Grace learns that Lucy Moynihan, the former occupant of her new home, was run out of town for having accused the popular guys at school of gang rape, she's incensed that Lucy never had justice. For their own personal reasons, Rosina and Erin feel equally deeply about Lucy's tragedy, so they form an anonymous group of girls at Prescott High to resist the sexist culture at their school, which includes boycotting sex of any kind with the male students. Told in alternating perspectives, this groundbreaking novel is an indictment of rape culture and explores with bold honesty the deepest questions about teen girls and sexuality. 1. Language: English.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Richard Price (23 February 1723 19 April 1791) was a British moral philosopher and preacher in the tradition of English Dissenters, and a political pamphleteer, active in radical, republican, and liberal causes such as the American Revolution. He fostered connections between a large number of people, including writers of the Constitution of the United States. He spent most of his adult life as minister of Newington Green Unitarian Church, where possibly the congregant he most influenced was early feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, who extended his ideas on the egalitarianism inherent in the spirit of the French Revolution to encompass women's rights as well. In addition to his work as a moral and political philosopher, he also wrote on issues of statistics and finance, and was inducted into the Royal Society for these contributions.

David Martyn Lloyd-Jones (20 December 1899 1 March 1981) was a Welsh Protestant minister and preacher who was influential in the Reformed wing of the British evangelical movement in the 20th century. For almost 30 years, he was the minister of Westminster Chapel in London. Lloyd-Jones was strongly opposed to the liberal theology that had become a part of many Christian denominations, regarding it as aberrant. He disagreed with the broad church approach and encouraged evangelical Christians (particularly Anglicans) to leave their existing denominations, taking the view that true Christian fellowship was only possible amongst those who shared common convictions regarding the nature of the faith.
Der Berner Albert Bitzius (1797&#8211;1854), bekannt als Jeremias Gotthelf, hat als Pfarrvikar und Pfarrer ebenso wie als Schriftsteller den liberalen Aufbruch 1830/31 mitgetragen und kritisch verfolgt. Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht die Frage, wie Gotthelf die Rollen des Pfarrers und Schriftstellers sowie jene der vorstaatlichen Institutionen wie der Familie im liberalen Staatswesen bestimmte. Dabei wird ein besonderes Augenmerk auf den Zentralbegriff der Mündigkeit des Bürgers gerichtet und auf die anthropologischen und christlichen Grundlagen, vor deren Hintergrund er sein Konzept der Mündigkeit entwickelt. Bereits in seiner frühen Predigertätigkeit setzt sich Gotthelf mit denselben anthropologischen und politischen Fragestellungen auseinander, die er später in seinen literarischen Texten bis hin zum Selbstzitat wieder aufgreift. Im Zentrum der Analyse stehen die 'Bilder und Sagen aus der Schweiz', die auch in einem grösseren Kontext, namentlich zum Gesamtwerk und im zeitgenössischen Diskurs um die Erziehung des Individuums zu sittlicher und politischer Mündigkeit, verortet werden.****************The Bernese Albert Bitzius (1797-1854), better known as Jeremias Gotthelf, contributed to and followed with a critical eye the liberal rising of 1830-31 as a curate and parish priest and also as a writer. This study investigates how Gotthelf defined the roles of priest and writer, and those of pre-state institutions such as the family in a liberal state system. Particular attention is given to the central concept of the autonomy of the citizen and to the anthropological and Christian foundations on the basis of which he developed his idea of autonomy. From his very earliest days as a preacher, Gotthelf deals with the same anthropological and political questions which he would later take up in his literary texts to the extent of self-quotation. The analysis focuses on 'Bilder und Sagen aus der Schweiz', which are also set in the wider context of Gotthelf&#8217;s complete works and of the contemporary discourse about the education of the individual to moral and political maturity.
