Nancy Love’s concise yet complete volume aims to inform students of their choices among political values. By exploring the assumptions of various ideologies and comparing their positions, students begin to understand political alternatives to be able to choose among them—in essence, they learn to think democratically. Offering historical and analytic context for the selections in her companion reader, Dogmas and Dreams, Love challenges students to consider the various ways ideological frameworks shape political actions. Reframing her approach in this second edition, Love examines how traditional left/right ideologies—liberalism and conservatism, socialism and fascism—are shifting to adapt to new political realities in an ever turbulent, post-9/11 world. She also discusses why alternative ideologies—feminism, environmentalism, fundamentalism, and globalization—may better convey our global political future. While pushing the boundaries of the left/right political spectrum, she looks at how grassroots social movements offer alternative ways to view ideological differences, from cluster-concepts to micro-discourses, and even a planetary galaxy. Expanded coverage includes: a new chapter on nationalism and globalization, which examines the work of Samuel Huntington, Kenichi Ohmae, Benjamin Barber, and many more, to explore fundamentalism in Islamic politics increased coverage of global environmental politics, including Shiva’s Stolen Harvest and Kelly’s Thinking Green, examining the relationships between developed and developing countries fresh material on socialist politics post-1989 and the rise of neo-fascist movements in the United States and Europe, including analysis of Hayden and Flacks’ “The Port Huron Statement at 40” and Bob Moser’s “The Age of Rage” an updated feminism chapter that considers the impact of third-wave, post-colonial, and so-called “power” feminists and incorporates new analysis of Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Woman and Mohanty’s Under Western Eyes Revisited A thinking person’s package… Nancy Love wrote Understanding Dogmas and Dreams with her edited collection in mind—the two work together as a seamless package and give students great value for their money.

Privilege the Text! spans the conceptual gap between biblical text and life application by providing a rigorous theological hermeneutic for preaching. Kuruvilla describes the theological entity that is the intermediary between ancient text and modern audience, and defines its crucial function in determining valid application. Based on this hermeneutic, he submits a new mode of reading Scripture for preaching: a Christiconic interpretation of the biblical text, a hermeneutically robust way to understand the depiction of the Second Person of the Trinity in Scripture. In addition, Kuruvilla’s work provides a substantive theology of spiritual formation through preaching: what it means to obey God, the Christian’s responsibility to undertake “faith-full” obedience to divine demand, and the incentives for such obedience—all integral to understanding the sermonic movement from text to application. Privilege the Text! promises to be useful not only for preachers, and students and teachers of homiletics, but for all who are interested in the exposition of Scripture that culminates in application for the glory of God.

Understanding Dreams: The Gateway to Dreams Without Dream Interpretation is an enlightening, accessible text that helps the lay person examine and understand his or her dreams without any formal training or psychological experience. Inspired by dream research pioneer Montague Ullman's dream group approach, this book breaks down the steps of this process for readers to fully understand dreams and apply their meanings to daily life. Translated from the original Finnish, Understanding Dreams makes it easy to access dreams with a fearless, hands-on approach that anyone can learn and master. Ideal for dreamers in all cultures, for readers put off by traditional dream psychology and dream interpretation, and even professional therapists, this book avoids clich d terms and approaches, focusing instead on the dreamer and how dreams can help break down the thoughts and feelings we are normally too busy to analyze. Inside, you will find commonly asked questions about dream interpretation, the history of dream psychology and its researchers, the dream group approach, and dreams in relation to the universe and our world. "Siivola writes journalistically lucid and easily readable text, divided into short chapters.[...] Understanding Dreams is an interesting book not only because of dreams, but also because of its life philosophy, art and poetry." -Jonimatti Joutsij rvi, Parnassus Literary Magazine "The most interesting chapter in the book is the last one; Dreams and the Universe, which rises up to lyrical heights, examining from the dream viewpoint, among other topics, creativity, art, and visions born in scientific domains." -Pia Ronkainen, Oulu University Student Magazine MARKKU SIIVOLA is a doctor of psychiatry who practiced liaison and rehabilitation psychiatry in Finland and Sweden before becoming an approved dream group leader.
