If you caught a glimpse of heaven, would you choose to come back to life? Investigative journalist Judy Bachrach has collected accounts of those who died and then returned to life with lucid, vivid memories of what occurred while they were dead, and the conclusions are astonishing. Clinical death—the moment when the heart stops beating and brain stem activity ceases—is not necessarily the end of consciousness, as a number of doctors are now beginning to concede. Hundreds of thousands of fascinating post-death experiences have been documented, and for many who have died and returned, life is forever changed. These days, an increasing number of scientific researchers are turning their studies to people who have experienced what the author calls death travels -- putting stock and credence in the sights, encounters, and exciting experiences reported by those who return from the dead. Through interviews with scores of these “death travelers,” and with physicians, nurses, and scientists unraveling the mysteries of the afterlife, Bachrach redefines the meaning of both life and death. Glimpsing Heaven reveals both the uncertainty and the surprising joys of life after death. From the Hardcover edition.

In recent years Christian scholars have become increasingly aware of their responsibility to recognize and respond to the challenges posed by ethnic and racial diversity. Similarly, historically white Christian colleges, universities, seminaries and congregations are struggling to transform themselves into communities that are welcoming to minorities and sensitive to their needs. This collection of all-new essays is meant to enable those who are engaged in these initiatives to understand the historical linkage of race, ethnicity and Christianity and to explore the ways in which constructive change can be achieved. The volume is the product of a long-term study funded by the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology. In the course of this study it emerged that many Christian institutions now offer courses on race and ethnicity, but that there is very little relevant literature written from the standpoint of rigorous Christian scholarship. This book is intended to fill that gap. The authors address such questions as: What has been the history of Christian churches and leaders in relation to slavery, segregation, and apartheid? Which biblical texts and doctrines have historically been employed on behalf of racial projects, and which are relevant to the racial and ethnic crises of our day? How have religious leaders constructively engaged such crises? How do congregations shape the values, civic commitments, understandings and sensitivities of their membership? How can local congregations be sites for racial reconciliation and justice initiatives? Are there positive models for how churches and other religious institutions have helped to bring healing to racial and ethnic tensions and divides? How might Christians in the professions work to bring justice to business, education, government, and other areas of society? When good intentions fail to accomplish desired ends, how do we analyze what went wrong? Written by an interracial and interethnic team of scholars representing diverse disciplines, this book will meet a pressing need and set a new standard for the discussion of race and ethnicity in the Christian context.

Fresh out of seminary school, Ben Montague had expectations of serving God when he became associate pastor of First Covenant Chapel. The tiny country church was just the place to get his career off on the right foot. That was until he started working with the Reverend Bob Buck. Five years away from retirement and on a personal mission to show his worth to others from his past, Buck's motives start to become increasingly apparent to Ben. It starts with something as small as omitting hymnal songs from the services, but when Buck suggests an $8.5 million loan for a new sanctuary, Ben knows he has boarded a sinking ship. Buck's true character gradually begins to reveal itself through greed and egotism--all the while insisting his actions are motivated by an effort to express God's love. A realistic and, at times, shocking glimpse into the ugly side of organized religion, "On This Side of Heaven" is a page-turner that teaches an important lesson: God is in the Church, but the Church is not God.

This Side of Heaven is a powerful book of inspirational and cutting-edge reality based poetry, prayer, prose and what the author calls “spiritual writings,” or essays of faith, that help us to look at the issues of life, examine the doubts and pains of living, and still look to a brighter tomorrow as we celebrate the very real power and presence of God. Designed with Reflection and Application Study pages at the end of each chapter, Robinson helps us to chart our feelings, dreams, and fears, and challenges us to embrace the power of God within, and affirm not just ourselves, but others. Upon reading this book your life will be enhanced and ideas made to come alive as you realize that she touches a very real place within your heart, and helps you to see the unlimited possibilities of a God-centered lifestyle. Sheila V. Baldwin, Columbia College Chicago English professor and Co-Chair of the English Department says: [In the beginning of this new millennium], the African-American community still lives within the shadows of post-traumatic stress resulting from slavery. Samira E. Robinson’s collection of poetic writings, This Side of Heaven, provides a source of solace and optimism. [For] Before Iyanla Vanzant became a pop icon, before Oprah Winfrey fashioned a moment of spirituality into her television show, and long before urban, top-forty radio stations across the country began to include gospel music on their play list, collectively the African-American community appeared to say: Lord, I need help. Samira E. Robinson’s writings remind us that we need only to follow and surrender all to God, and to be quiet and listen to our still small voice, the voice of God within who constantly advises us to expect the best. Bishop Arthur M. Brazier, pastor of the Apostolic Church of God in Chicago, Illinois states: Samira E. Robinson is a woman of faith who has dedicated her life to God through helping others. Her book, This Side of Heaven, is an insightful approach on how to enjoy life to its fullest potential. And finally, Melody Spann-Cooper, President & General Manager of WVON Radio (The Talk of Chicago) had this to say: This Side of Heaven - what a joy to read! The passion of her gift shows in every line.

"There is hardly any book equal to Ways of Thinking of Eastern Peoples in terms of its thorough and systematic presentation of the intricate thought patterns of Asian peoples. The book not only is an essential reference for the student of Asian culture, but also for students of philosophy, religion, anthropology, and art, as it is an excellent source for aiding the student in gaining a deeper understanding of each facet of Oriental thought." --Isshi Yamada, Northwestern University "The clearest discussion and analysis of these complex subjects that I have found. My advanced undergraduate students find this work to be 'stimulating', 'challenging' and comprehensible.' The organization of the text enhances the usefulness of this volume, but it is the high quality of the scholarship that makes Ways of Thinking a most valuable addition to Asian studies and to the academic training of upper division students." --Ann B. Radwan, University of North Florida "I find Ways of thinking a most provocative source for exploring with my students certain basic themes in Eastern religion and culture. Used carefully, it is a most stimulating and effective source for tapping Eastern 'ways' at a fundamental level of inquiry." --Wilbur M. Fridell, University of California, Santa Barbara
