Africa, The New African Diaspora, And Religious Transnationalism In A Global World, James V. Spickard, Afe Adogame 2010 University of Redlands

Africa, The New African Diaspora, And Religious Transnationalism In A Global World, James V. Spickard, Afe Adogame

Our House Book Chapters and Sections

This introductory chapter accomplishes two tasks. First, it identifies seven different approaches to the study of religion and immigration, outlining the ways that each of these both reveals and limits transnational religious dynamics in the current era. Second, it summarizes each of the chapters of this book, identifying their major themes and how they, together, reveal multiple aspects of African-based transnational religious phenomena.


Disposing Ofnon-Disposable Texts, James Watts 2010 Syracuse University

Disposing Ofnon-Disposable Texts, James Watts

Religion

These concluding reflections on the essays in The Death of Sacred Texts consider evidence that the disposal of secular books also evokes serious concern. There is an inherent tension in most literate cultures between the idea of a book or enduring text on the one hand and the possibility of its disposal or destruction on the other. Disposing of books transgresses inhibitions reinforced by family, school, media, and government. The concern for book preservation involves respect for culture(s), veneration of traditions, and, at its root, the preservation of cultural values. Factors other than information preservation are at work here ...


Job Satisfaction Of Naia Head Coaches At Small Faith-Based Colleges: The Teacher-Coach Model, Craig L. Stiemsma 2010 Dordt College

Job Satisfaction Of Naia Head Coaches At Small Faith-Based Colleges: The Teacher-Coach Model, Craig L. Stiemsma

Faculty Work Comprehensive List

The head coaches at smaller colleges usually have other job responsibilities that include teaching, along with the responsibilities of coaching, recruiting, scheduling, and other coaching-related jobs. There is often a dual role involved for these coaches who try to juggle two different jobs that sometimes require different skill sets and involve different responsibilities that may lead to role conflict. The primary purpose of this study was to determine the level of job satisfaction of coaches in the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC). This study also sought to determine if there were differences in coaches' levels of job satisfaction based on ...

Environmental Degradation, Social Sin, And The Common Good, Jame Schaefer 2010 Marquette University

Environmental Degradation, Social Sin, And The Common Good, Jame Schaefer

Theology Faculty Research and Publications

WHILE REPORTS OF ENDANGERED SPECIES, pollutants and toxins in the environment, problematic nuclear and other hazardous wastes, and threats to the biosphere have been highlighted occasionally by the media for many years, recent attention has focused on changes that humans are forcing on the global climate. Indicators of these changes and dire predictions of adverse future effects have been identified periodically by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a collaborative effort of more than a thousand scholars amassed by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environment Programme to assess the latest scientific, technical, and socioeconomic studies so ...

Scripture In The Pastoral Letters Of The Provincial Councils Of Baltimore, Eric Vanden Eykel 2010 Graduate Student Marquette University

Scripture In The Pastoral Letters Of The Provincial Councils Of Baltimore, Eric Vanden Eykel

Theology Faculty Research and Publications

In the pastoral letters of the provincial councils of Baltimore (1829-1849), a dramatic shift occurs in the way Scripture is employed as a source of authority; in the earlier letters, the role of Scripture is commanding and evident, while in the later, it is almost invisible. This article addresses each letter in turn, outlining the ways in which Scripture is employed to illustrate and reinforce the decrees of the provincial councils. The analysis suggests that Scripture's role in the 1829-1840 letters corresponds to the turbulent environment of the Catholic Church in America, especially in relation to Protestant nativist groups ...


Unlocking Catholic Social Doctrine: Narrative Is Key, William J. Wagner 2010 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Unlocking Catholic Social Doctrine: Narrative Is Key, William J. Wagner

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

The argument of the present essay is that the pragmatic pressures of contemporary circumstances that lead to Catholic social doctrine – as set out in the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church, for example, – to being strongly emphasized in Catholic law schools should not be permitted to create a doctrinal hegemony severing doctrine from the contextualization from which it draws its meaning. Catholic social doctrine depends, for its coherence and truth, as do all of the doctrinal formulations within Catholicism, on its relation to both philosophical and theological understanding and, for the purposes of my present inquiry, to ...

The Role Of The Imagination In The Religious Conversion Of Adolescents Attending Catholic Secondary Schools, Richard Patrick Branson 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

The Role Of The Imagination In The Religious Conversion Of Adolescents Attending Catholic Secondary Schools, Richard Patrick Branson

Theses

The mission of the Catholic Church is evangelisation, the purpose of which is conversion. At a diocesan level, the mission is carried out through the agencies of family, parish and school. Every Catholic school is mandated to carry out its part in the Church’s mission through its curriculum that incorporates both Religious Education and planned catechetical experiences. This study was devised to find out some students’ perceptions of their faith, the influences that they perceive on changes to their faith, and to describe how the imagination assisted their faith development and religious conversion. Fifteen Catholic secondary school students from ...

Joseph Smith And The First Principles Of The Gospel, 1820-29, Richard Bennett 2010 Individual

Joseph Smith And The First Principles Of The Gospel, 1820-29, Richard Bennett

All Faculty Publications

So much of a biographical nature has been written lately on the life of the Prophet Joseph Smith that one may well wonder if there is anything new or important left to say about him. Dan Vogel and Richard Bushman, in their dramatically counterpoint interpretations of the Prophet--the former contending he was a "pious fraud" and the latter asserting he was a legitimate American prophet--have forced us to reconsider the earlier arguments and interpretations of Donna and Marvin Hill, Fawn Brodie, John Henry Evans, and George Q. Cannon. Yet the contrasting contributions of these latest two scholars, and the fervent ...
