Ask the Beasts: Darwin and the God of Love
Elizabeth A. Johnson

What value does the natural world have within the framework of religious belief? The crisis of biodiversity in our ...

When Life and Beliefs Collide
Carolyn Custis James

The Civil War as a Theological Crisis
University Press Audiobooks, 2010
The Civil War was a major turning point in American religious thought, argues Mark A. Noll.

Furthermore, most Americans continued to believe that God ruled over the affairs of people and nations, but they were radically ...

Biblical Framework Press
