BOOK EXCERPT:

Who is Jesus? This is the fundamental question for christology. The earliest Christians used various titles, most of them drawn from the Old Testament or Hebrew Scriptures, to express their faith in Jesus. They called him prophet, teacher, Messiah, Son of David, Son of Man, Lord, Son of God, Word of God, and occasionally even God. In Who Is Jesus? Thomas Rausch, S.J., focuses on the New Testament's rich variety of christologies. Who Is Jesus? covers the three quests for the historical Jesus, the methods for retrieving the historical Jesus, the Jewish background, the Jesus movement, his preaching and ministry, death and resurrection, the various New Testament christologies, and the development of christological doctrine from the New Testament period to the Council of Chalcedon. Chapters are "The Three Quests for the Historical Jesus," "Methodological Considerations," "The Jewish Background," "Jesus and His Movement," " The Preaching and Ministry of Jesus," "The Death of Jesus," "God Raised Him from the Dead," "New Testament Christologies," "From the New Testament to Chalcedon," "Sin and Salvation," and "A Contemporary Approach to Soteriology." Thomas P. Rausch, SJ, PhD, is the T. Marie Chilton Professor of Catholic Theology at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. A specialist in ecclesiology, ecumenism, and the theology of the priesthood, he has published eight books including the award-winning Catholicism at the Dawn of the Third Millennium, The College Student's Introduction to Theology, and Reconciling Faith and Reason: Apologists, Evangelists, and Theologians in a Divided Church, published by Liturgical Press.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Popular authors like 'Carter Brown' and 'Nino Culotta', who have sold millions of copies of books, have had their identities created and then called into question through the exigencies of the publishing industry, while writers like Peter Carey and Joseph Furphy have thematised imposture and hoaxing in their fiction. Who's Who? brings together for the first time essays that consider a range of high-profile cases of literary hoaxing, identity crisis or imposture in Australian literature. Critics explore the history of hoaxing and imposture, and consider the cultural and political issues at stake. Read together, these essays offer a map of identity crises in Australian literary culture, allowing us to see the complexities of, and the many differences between, individual cases. Contributors- Bill Ashcroft, Alice Brittan, David Carter, Maureen Clark, Carrie Dawson, Susanna Egan, Cath Ellis, Terry Goldie, Toni Johnson-Woods, Sonia Mycak, Marguerite Nolan and Gillian Whitlock.

BOOK EXCERPT:

From the ashes of World War II, a group of Japanese elite rose to power, making their nation an industrial giant and economic superpower for decades to come. Now, the spirit of sacrifice and patriotism that originally drove this group has been replaced by the corruption of the present day corporate elite. The course they are charting, predict authors Kerbo and McKinstry, will send Japan spiraling toward self-destruction. This bold work takes readers into the complex political network of Japan today. It is a world filled with corporate intrigue, arranged marriages, interlocking families, and growing civic unrest. This book illustrates that Japan has reached a decisive crossroads in its history. Today's leaders must confront a moral and philosophical conflict between preserving their own power or relinquishing their privilege for the prosperity of their country. General readers and scholars with a desire to understand the forces influencing our new world order need to ask, Who Rules Japan?

BOOK EXCERPT:

More than just a biography or discography, this work is a thoroughly detailed guide to the recorded works of the legendary British rock and roll group The Who. From their early hits of the 1960s ("I Can't Explain" and "My Generation") through the ambitious concept works (Tommy, Lifehouse, Quadrophenia) to their later successes, this work encompasses the entire range of The Who's music. The chronological narrative stretches from their beginnings in West London in the early 1960s to their international superstar status through the 1970s and 1980s. Each phase of the band's recording career is given detailed coverage, along with historical background notes and a critical analysis of every known Who recording. Many previously uncovered facts are incorporated into the text, and the author has been able to glean exclusive information from The Who's archives. Unrealized Who projects such as the Lifehouse film, as well as many unreleased performances, are discussed and analyzed for the first time in print. Finally, the work contains a definitive discography of currently available CDs and an exhaustive appendix of every known Who song with relevant recording information.
