The Encyclopedia of Christianity in the United States outlines the myriad roles Christianity has played and continues to play. This masterful multi-volume reference includes biographies of major figures in the Christian church in the United States, documents and Supreme Court decisions, and information on theology and theologians, denominations, faith-based organizations, immigration, art—from decorative arts and film to music and literature—evangelism and crusades, women’s issues, racial issues, civil religion, and more.

In the Days of Caesar is a constructive political theology formulated in sustained dialogue with the Pentecostal and charismatic renewal one of the most vibrant religious movements at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Amos Yong here argues that the many tongues, practices, and gifts of renewal Christianity offer up new resources for thinking about how Christian community can engage and transform the social, political, and economic structures of the world. Yong has three goals here. First he seeks to correct stereotypes of Pentecostalism, both political and theological. Secondly he aims to provoke Pentecostals to reflect theologically from out of the depths of their own Pentecostalism rather than merely to adopt some framework for theological or political self-understanding. Finally Yong shows that a distinctively Pentecostal form of theological reflection is not a parochial activity but has constructive potential to illuminate Christian belief and practice. This book s engagement with political theology from a Pentecostal perspective is the first of its kind.

»Ein Roman von geradezu hypnotischer Stärke – zutiefst erschütternd und großartig erzählt.« The New York Times In Marshall, einem abgeschiedenen Ort in den Bergen North Carolinas, geschieht an einem heißen Sommertag das Unfassbare. Der dreizehnjährige Christopher Hall kommt während der Abendmesse ums Leben. Der Junge hat noch nie ein Wort gesprochen. Deshalb sollte er an diesem Sonntag in der Kirche »geheilt« werden. Niemand aus der Gemeinde will sich zum Tod des Jungen äußern. Auch der charismatische Prediger Carson Chambliss, der selbsternannte Erlöser im Ort, schweigt zu dem Vorfall. Was jedoch keiner in Marshall ahnt: Christophers jüngerer Bruder Jess hat das Geschehen in der Kirche an dem Tag, als sein Bruder starb, von außen beobachtet. Und Jess weiß, was er gesehen hat. Er weiß auch, was Christopher und er nur wenige Tage zuvor in ihrem Elternhaus gesehen haben. Als Jess sein Wissen teilt, spitzt sich die Situation zu, und es kommt zur Katastrophe. New York Times Bestseller Von Kirkus Reviews und Library Journal zum besten Roman 2012 gewählt Ausgezeichnet mit dem Dagger Award für den besten Debütroman
