Welcome to the bully pulpit where opinions fly but common sense rules. Here's where you'll find straight talk about the most pressing issues of the day, all delivered in the trademark commonsense style of one of America's most popular and admired television news anchors. Always resisting the political label that attempts to place people in one ideological camp or another, Greta Van Susteren speaks from the mind and the heart, not as a liberal or a conservative, but as a right-thinking, sensible citizen. "Our country is at a critical juncture," she writes, and "too many of us are caught up in old definitions of left and right that no longer apply. If I favor the death penalty in some cases, does that make me right-wing? If I think hate crimes legislation is stupid, does that make me a conservative? If I happen to like and enjoy Ozzy Osbourne and have him on my show, does that make me a liberal? And if I believe that corporations should be held accountable if their products harm citizens and they should be subject to the rulings of a jury - ditto for doctors who commit medical malpractice - does that make me a lefty trial lawyer?" Here's more of Greta in her own words:On the military: Liberty isn't free. As a nation, we must provide for the men and women who put their lives on the line for us. That means good pay, adequate funding for defense, and our heartfelt support.Vietnam was a very long time ago. We Baby Boomers have to wake up and realize that today’s military is a different military from the one we grew up with, and we are fighting a very different war. Patriotism is not a conservative or a liberal thing. Patriotism, as far as I am concerned, is the duty and obligation of every American.On the Supreme Court: There should be a litmus test for Supreme Court and federal court judges, and that test should be their opinion about allowing public access to court proceedings. Let cameras inside the courthouse, or at least allow an 1. Language: English. Narrator: Greta Van Susteren. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/000311/bk_rand_000311_sample.mp3.

Of all the teachings of Christianity, the doctrine of hell is easily the most troubling, so much so that in recent years the church has been quietly tucking it away. Rarely mentioned anymore in the pulpit, it has faded through disuse among evangelicals and been attacked by liberal theologians. Hell is no longer only the target of those outside the church. Today, a disturbing number of professing Christians question it as well. Perhaps more than at any other time in history, hell is under fire. The implications of the historic view of hell make the popular alternatives, annihilationism and universalism, seem extremely appealing. But the bottom line is still God's Word. What does the Old Testament reveal about hell? What does Paul the apostle have to say, or the book of Revelation? Most important, what does Jesus, the ultimate expression of God's love, teach us about God's wrath? Upholding the authority of Scripture, the different authors in Hell Under Fire explore a complex topic from various angles. R. Albert Mohler Jr. provides a historical, theological, and cultural overview of 'The Disappearance of Hell.' Christopher Morgan draws on the New Testament to offer three pictures of hell as punishment, destruction, and banishment. J. I. Packer compares universalism with the traditional understanding of hell, Morgan does the same with annihilationism, and Sinclair Ferguson considers how the reality of hell ought to influence preaching. These examples offer some idea of this volume's scope and thoroughness.Hell may be under fire, but its own flames cannot be quenched by popular opinion. This book helps us gain a biblical perspective on what hell is and why we cannot afford to ignore it. And it offers us a better understanding of the One who longs for all people to escape judgment and obtain eternal life through Jesus Christ. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Parks.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Second Constitutional Era of the Ottoman Empire began shortly after Sultan Abdülhamid II restored the constitutional monarchy after the 1908 Young Turk Revolution. The period established many political groups. A series of elections during this period resulted in the gradual ascendance of the Committee of Union and Progress's ("CUP") domination in politics. The second biggest party Liberal Union (Ottoman Empire) ("LU") (tr:Hürriyet ve ?tilâf) was in fact a coalition of parties led by Prince Sabahaddin. The constitutional era ended after World War I with the occupation of Istanbul. The last meeting on March 18 declared a letter of protest to the Allies with a black cloth covered the pulpit of the Parliament as reminder of its absent members.
The post liberal, cultural-linguistic theology of the Yale School has been one of the most important theological developments in the United States during the latter twentieth century. In this unique book, which combines theological analysis and homiletical reflection,Charles Campbell examines post liberal theology as it is embodied in the work of Hans Frei and develops the implications of this theological position for the theory and practice of preaching. Arguing that the trouble with homiletics today is fundamentally theological, Campbell offers Frei's theological position as a means for enriching the Christian pulpit and renewing the church. Charles Campbell has given us a helpful book on preaching and the best study available of Hans Frei's theology. This is a book that anyone interested in Frei's thought needs to read, and it will lead many preachers who begin it with no interest in Frei to discover how much his way thinking about theology can help them in their task. --William C. Placher, Wabash College This book maps out an important intersection between the theology of the so-called Yale School and the life of mainstream Protestant churches. Campbell's book offers both an accessible guide to Hans Frei's theology and an approach to narrative preaching that has promise in addressing the challenge of building Christian community in contemporary Protestantism. --Amy Plantinga Pauw, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary Finally! A book that moves us beyond 'storytelling' in preaching. In Preaching Jesus Campbell takes the church's story seriously and discloses the revolutionary potential of preaching in a post liberal age. This is the most honest and helpful appraisal of narrative preaching that I know of. We have been waiting for this book and Campbell's exciting new proposals for many years. --Richard Lischer, Duke Divinity School In a crowded supermarket of junk food and homiletic 'lite' fare, Charles Campbell has brought us a nourishing gift--the solid meat of profound theological reflection on the task of preaching. . . . A rare and welcome book. --Thomas G. Long, Brandy Professor of Preaching at Candler School of Theology Charles L. Campbell is Peter Marshall Professor of Homiletics, Columbia Theological Seminary.
Surprisingly little has been written about the origins of Liberal Judaism in England but this book examines why the movement was founded and how it developed. Kessler has selected the key writings of the four founders to demonstrate their understanding of modern Judaism. By bringing their writings together in one work, the reader is able to read about the scholarly contributions of Abrahams, the astute leadership of Montefiore, the organizational abilities of Montagu and the pastoral dynamism of Mattuck. Israel Abrahams was the foremost scholar of his time and with Claude Montefiore established the Jewish Quarterly Review, which was the first English speaking academic Jewish journal. Montefiore's influence is also illustrated by Lily Montagu's contribution to the establishment of Liberal Judaism. Montagu provided the catalyst for creation of Liberal Judaism. Israel Mattuck left a comfortable pulpit in New York and took the reins at the first Liberal synagogue in England in 1912.
New York Times Book Review (David Gergen): 'Would Barack Obama have been elected president without David Axelrod? That question is less far-fetched than it may seem... what emerges is important: a portrait of political campaigning that is more like what we hope than what we fear, that rises above the machinations and muck... a stout defense--indeed, the best I have read--of the Obama years... Judging from his first book, Obama has the talent to write the best presidential memoir in modern tunes. It is worth waiting for. But for now, David Axelrod has written a highly readable, uplifting account of the candidate he loves--and, reassuringly, has shown politics can still be a calling, not a business.' The Los Angeles Times: 'Axelrod, liberated from the constraints of messaging, is warm and wry, loyal to Obama without being uncritical, and occasionally acid in his appraisals of others &#8212; now-Secretary of State John Kerry, political consultant Mark Penn and former Sen. John Edwards will not be among this book's biggest fans. It helps that Axelrod can write. A journalist before he was a political consultant, his book is revealing... but best of all, it is well told &#8212; the work of a capable, professional storyteller.' The Economist ' Mr Axelrod has uncommon insights to offer.' New York Times 'The three dominant characters in this political memoir by David Axelrod, one of the Democratic Party&#8217;s best-known strategists, are Mr. Axelrod, his once-in-a-lifetime client Barack Obama and belief... Believer is a well-written and often moving account of how a committed liberal measures his principles against the bruising imperatives of high-stakes politics. And, it should be noted, there is ample juice in Mr. Axelrod&#8217;s literary steak.' Chicago Tribune: &#8220;For sure, political junkies will have trouble putting the book down. And much of Washington will be yanking 'Believer' off the shelf and turning to the index to see how they were treated&#8230;if you're interested in how the sausage is made, you'll want to read this book.&#8221; DORIS KEARNS GOODWIN, author of The Bully Pulpit and Team of Rivals &#8220;Beautifully written with warmth, humor, and remarkable self-awareness, Believer is one of the finest political memoirs I have ever read. Through one memorable anecdote after another, Axelrod tells a revealing and moving story of his long and honorable career in public life. This is a thoroughly terrific book.&#8221; DEVAL PATRICK, governor of Massachusetts &#8220;In telling the vivid tales of his own forty years behind the curtain of modern politics, Axelrod reminds us that elections matter to those who don&#8217;t engage as well as those who do, effectively challenging us all to get involved.&#8221; MIKE MURPHY, Republican strategist &#8220;David Axelrod has written a remarkable book, a deeply honest and unflinching memoir of his journey from cub journalist to political adviser to the President of the United States. From the boisterous wards of Chicago politics to the Oval Office, Believer takes you inside the political warrior&#8217;s life, with its larger-than-life personalities, exhilarating victories, and gut-wrenching defeats. For Axelrod, the goal is victory, but the enemy is cynicism. Anybody, Democrat or Republican, who loves politics should read this book.&#8221; GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS, chief anchor of ABC News &#8220;David Axelrod was present at the creation of President Obama&#8217;s political career. He reflects on their improbable journey with the faithfulness of a reporter, the ferocity of a political operative, and the passion of a true believer. A riveting read.&#8221;
One of the year's Top Ten Books on Religion and Spirituality (Booklist), Being Alive and Having to Die is the story of the remarkable public and private journey of Reverend Forrest Church, the scholar, activist, and preacher whose death became a way to celebrate life. Through his pulpit at the prestigious Unitarian Church of All Souls in New York, Reverend Forrest Church became a champion of liberal religion and a leading opponent of the religious right. An inspired preacher, a thoughtful theologian and an eloquent public intellectual, Church built a congregation committed to social service for people in need, while writing twenty five books, hosting a cable television program, and being featured in People, Esquire, New York Magazine, and on numerous national television and radio appearances. Being Alive and Having to Die works on two levels, as an examination of liberal religion during the past 30 years of conservative ascendancy, and as a fascinating personal story. Church grew up the son of Senator Frank Church of Idaho, famous for combating the Vietnam War in the 1960s and the CIA in the 1970s. Like many sons of powerful fathers, he rebelled and took a different path in life, which led him to his own prominence. Then, in 1991, at the height of his fame, he fell in love with a married parishioner and nearly lost his pulpit. Eventually, he regained his stature, overcame a long-secret alcoholism, wrote his best books-and found himself diagnosed with terminal cancer. His three year public journey toward death brought into focus the preciousness of life, not only for himself, but for his ministry. Based on extraordinary access to Church and over 200 interviews with family, friends, and colleagues, Dan Cryer bears witness to a full, fascinating, at time controversial life. Being Alive and Having to Die is an honest look at an imperfect man and his lasting influence on modern faith.
