  • Tear Down this Wall of SilenceTear Down this Wall of Silence : Dealing with Sexual Abuse in Our Churches

    Ingraham. Dale.

    "It was my father." Those words that Dale Ingraham's soon-to-be fiance Faith spoke to him about incest at the hand of her pastor father rocked his world. But it was a world of silence at their Christian college--silence, at least, when it came to sexual abuse. Years later the silence was finally broken when that same abuser molested a girl in the church Dale himself pastored. Now Dale is determined to do his part to Tear Down This Wall of Silence, and to help readers understand the dynamics that so often keep the wall of silence in place. Riveting first-person statements and perspectives from other abuse survivors also help to tear down the wall so that those who need to understand can do so. Tear Down This Wall of Silence explores the character of the abuser, the true meaning of repentance and forgiveness, and how urgent it is for the church to open their eyes to the wounded and oppressed in their midst.

  • On the IncarnationOn the Incarnation

    Athanasius.

    This work was composed partly to explain Athanasius's thoughts on Jesus Christ and the nature of the Holy Spirit, and partly to refute the views of Arius, a rival deacon within the Egyptian church. According to Athanasius, God arrived on Earth as Christ to show humans a pure example of divinity - through this illustration, humans may themselves aspire to immortality. Written sometime prior to 319 A.D., this text by Athanasius is cited as one of the most influential of early Christianity. As the Pope of the Coptic Christians of Egypt, Athanasius was both renowned by his fellow early Christians and reviled by the ruling Roman Empire who sought to exile him numerous times. His church considered these writings valuable, preserving and passing on the teachings for future Christian generations. This translation in this edition was accomplished by Sister Penelope Lawson, a nun who spent her entire life in study of various ancient Christian texts. Since originally appearing in 1944, Lawson's translation has been applauded as an authentic presentation of Athanasius's thoughts in English.

  • Why are all the black kids sitting together in the cafeteria?Why are all the black kids sitting together in the cafeteria? : and other conversations about race

    Tatum, Beverly Daniel, http://id.loc.gov/authoriti

    "The classic, bestselling book on the psychology of racism-now fully revised and updated. Walk into any racially mixed high school and you will see Black, White, and Latino youth clustered in their own groups. Is this self-segregation a problem to address or a coping strategy? Beverly Daniel Tatum, a renowned authority on the psychology of racism, argues that straight talk about our racial identities is essential if we are serious about enabling communication across racial and ethnic divides. These topics have only become more urgent as the national conversation about race is increasingly acrimonious. This fully revised edition is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of race in America. "An unusually sensitive work about the racial barriers that still divide us in so many areas of life."--Jonathan Kozol"--

    Denhollander, Rachael, 1984-, author.

    "Recipient of Sports Illustrated's Inspiration of the Year Award and one of Time's 100 Most Influential People (2018) "Who is going to tell these little girls that what was done to them matters? That they are seen and valued, that they are not alone and they are not unprotected?" Rachael Denhollander's voice was heard around the world when she spoke out to end the most shocking scandal in US gymnastics history. The first victim to publicly accuse Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics team doctor who abused hundreds of young athletes, Rachael now reveals her full story for the first time. How did Nassar get away with it for so long? How did Rachael and the other survivors finally stop him and bring him to justice? And how can we protect the vulnerable in our own families, churches, and communities? What Is a Girl Worth? is the inspiring true story of Rachael's journey from an idealistic young gymnast to a strong and determined woman who found the courage to raise her voice against evil, even when she thought the world might not listen. This deeply personal and compelling narrative shines a spotlight on the physical and emotional impact of abuse, why so many survivors are reluctant to speak out, what it means to be believed, the extraordinary power of faith and forgiveness, and how we can learn to do what's right in the moments that matter most"--
