Imagined Communities: Reflections on the Origin and Spread of Nationalism (New Edition)
A short-lived idea?
The thesis: "Nations" are imagined communities. They don't exist per se, as we will never know the overwhelming majority of our fellow compatriots. Nations don't respect ethnicity, religion, or preferences. They are not entities formed out of voluntary association. They are not optional at birth. They are political concoctions, perceived as limited and sovereign. Independently of the existing ...

Nathaniel Philbrick is one of the best historical authors that I have read. He is a top notch researcher, one of best when it comes to describing historical events. The ideas he writes are clear and logical.

Theology for the Community of God
Stanley J. Grenz
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company
An excellent theological work for this generation.
Every generation needs theologians willing to wrestle with the challenging task of communicating the timeless theological truths of the Bible in the cultural and linguistic setting of the day. Such work is difficult because it requires the theologian to "draw lines" between rigid doctrinalism and syncretism. Stanley Grenz's work provides an excellent example of such a task well done. Theology for ...

But this is not so. Organic Community helps you to chill out with master planning and begin identifying what God has given you so that a unique church model can naturally arise. Great, great read. Don't ...

It really is a "how to think about this issue" and "how to make it happen successfully" manual. Highly recommend it.
