Bounded Choice: True Believers and Charismatic Cults
Janja Lalich
0520240189
September 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Heaven's Gate, a secretive group of celibate "monks" awaiting pickup by a UFO, captured intense public attention in 1997 when its members committed collective suicide. As a way of understanding such perplexing events, many have seen those who join cults as needy, lost souls, unable to think for themselves. This book, a compelling look at the cult phenomenon written for a wide audience, dispels such simple formulations by explaining how normal, intelligent people can give up years of their lives--and sometimes their very lives--to groups and beliefs that appear bizarre and irrational. Looking closely at Heaven's Gate and at the Democratic Workers Party, a radical political group of the 1970s and 1980s, Janja Lalich gives us a rare insider's look at these two cults and advances a new theoretical framework that will...


A Generous Orthodoxy
Brian D. McLaren

Sept 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
A confession and manifesto from a senior leader in the emerging church movement—A Generous Orthodoxy calls for a radical, Christ-centered orthodoxy of faith and practice in a missional, generous spirit. Brian McLaren argues for a post-liberal, post-conservative, post-protestant convergence, which will stimulate lively interest and global conversation among thoughtful Christians from all traditions.

In a sweeping exploration of belief, author Brian McLaren takes us across the landscape of faith, envisioning an orthodoxy that aims for Jesus, is driven by love, and is defined by missional intent. A Generous Orthodoxy rediscovers the mysterious and compelling ways that Jesus can be embraced across the entire Christian horizon. Rather than establishing what is and is not "orthodox," McLaren walks through...


Charismatic Chaos
John F. MacArthur
0310575729
July 1993
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The charismatic movement of the past quarter-century has made an impact on the church unparalleled in history. But one legacy of the movement is confusion and mushy thinking. In Charismatic Chaos, John F. MacArthur calls for biblical evaluation and analyzes the doctrinal differences between charismatics and non-charismatics in the light of Scripture. "My principal concern," writes John MacArthur, "is to call the church to a firm commitment to the purity and authority of the Scriptures, and thereby to strengthen the unity of the true church." To tough questions that seem to divide, Charismatic Chaos provides tougher answers that strive to unite. This book tackles such questions as - Is experience a valid test of truth? - Does God still give revelation? - Prophets, fanatics, or heretics? - Does God still heal? - What...

Jim W. Goll
0768422329
July 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The prophetic movements in church history and in contemporary life are fed by two mighty streams: the prophet, whose revelation is primarily verbal, and the seer, whose revelation is more visionary in nature. While the role of the prophet is familiar, less is known about the seer dimension. To many people, these visionary prophets remain mysterious, otherworldly, and even strange. Knowledge dispels misunderstanding. Join author Jim W. Goll on an exciting and insightful journey into this lesser-known dimension—the visionary world of the seer. You will discover the prophetic power of dreams, visions, and life under the open heavens. How does visionary revelation "happen?" Can it be trusted? Where does it fit into the life of the church today? Can any believer become a seer, or is this a prophetic dimension...

Book Description
Renewal Theology deals with the full range of Christian truth from within the charismatic tradition. Previously published as three separate volumes, Renewal Theology represents the first exhaustive, balanced articulation of charismatic theology.

The Charismatic Theology of St. Luke
Roger Stronstad

July 1984
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
"I am quite frankly excited at the appearance of Roger Stronstad's book The Charismatic Theology of St. Luke. Until now people have had to recognize Pentecostalism as a powerful force in the areas of spirituality, church growth, and world mission, but they have not felt it had much to offer for biblical, theological, and intellectual foundations. But this is fast changing, and with the appearance of this book we may be seeing the first motions of a wave of intellectually convincing Pentecostal theology which will sweep in upon us in the next decades."—From the Foreword by Clark H. PinnockIn recent years, considerable scholarly discussion has occurred regarding the meaning of the Holy Spirit's activity in Luke-Acts. The Charismatic Theology of St. Luke represents a new and fresh approach to this important...

June 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Drawn from his own experience, Michael W. Foss presents a strong case for transforming congregations from a membership model to a discipleship model of church affiliation. Beginning with a careful analysis of recent patterns in church membership/demographics that argue for this paradigm shift, subsequent chapters detail the unique leadership and organizational needs of a discipleship model, explore the building and maintaining of fundamental trust—in God and in God's people—as the cornerstone of the model, and provide practical help for assessing the present and developing strategies for moving into the future. Addressed to professional and non-professional church leaders interested in transforming their churches into centers for discipleship and mission, it proposes a grace-centered rather than legalistic...

Charismatic Capitalism: Direct Selling Organizations in America
Nicole Woolsey Biggart
0226047865
March 1990
Textbook Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Mary Kay, Tupperware, and other direct selling organizations offer an alternative work approach, and have grown despite their apparent defiance of organizational and workplace trends. This, Biggart proposes, has implications for traditional firms. Instead of bureaucratized environments, these organizations offer autonomy, an ideology espousing family values, recognition readily achieved, upward mobility linked to success in recruiting additional dealers, and charismatic leaders who give the preponderantly female dealers a sense of community. This eminently readable book will interest and challenge specialists in organization, work, and women's studies, as well as those whose curiosity has been piqued by the almost cult-like enthusiasm of direct sellers.- Frieda Shoenberg Rozen, Pennsylvania State Univ. , University...

“A timely, well-written contribution to our understanding of a number of important phenomena in the contemporary world, this is also a contribution to debates over concepts and methods in anthropological and related scholarship” —Erika Bourguignon, Ohio State University

“Csordas is so familiar with the {Roman Catholic Charismatic} movement ... that he is to a large extent able to overcome the typical problem of the ethnographer—the assertion that his or her research may not be generalizable beyond the local situation.” —Peter Stromberg, University of Tulsa

“This study of the Catholic charismatic renewal succeeds in the difficult feat of speaking both to specialists in a cluster of scholarly disciplines and to the general reader.” —R. W. Rousseau,...
