The Oxford Illustrated History of Christianity

Spanning two thousand years of stirring religious, cultural and political events, this lavishly illustrated volume provides the most authoritative and accessible history of Christianity ever published for the general reader. The impact of Christianity on world civilization is almost incalculable, and in exploring this rich heritage, nineteen leading scholars range from the earliest origins to the present day to examine virtually every aspect of the faith. They discuss the apostle Peter and Roman Emperor Constantine, describe the role of Charlemagne in the expansion of the religion, and assess medieval scholasticism and the influence of Thomas Aquinas. The profound changes that occurred during both the Reformation and the Enlightenment are fully treated in chapters that offer revealing portraits of such key figures as Erasmus, Luther, Calvin, Wesley, and Rousseau. Fully one third of the book covers Christianity since 1800--with special studies of the faith as practiced in Britain and Europe, North and South America, Africa, India, and the Far East--offering a compelling continuous narrative filled with insight into the enormously diverse Christian world. In the final chapters, the authors consider questions of contemporary Christian theology, conscience and belief, and explore new concepts of Christian community. Over 350 beautiful illustrations--including 32 full color plates--grace the text, ranging from mosaics, paintings and sculptures, to architecture and modern art. There are also ten maps, a chronology of important events, and an annotated guide to further reading. Throughout, the book reflects the changing world in which Christians have found themselves, and the many ways in which, individually and through the institutions of the church, they in turn have influenced history. Comprehensive, vividly narrated, and exquisitely produced, this magnificent book captures the richness and vitality of Christian thought and culture throughout the ages.

ReGeneration 2: Tomorrows Photographers Today

Following the success of 2005's groundbreaking book and exhibition "reGeneration: 50 Photographers of Tomorrow 2005-2025," "reGeneration 2: Tomorrow's Photographers Today" turns the spotlight yet again on the next generation of photography's potential stars. Through over 200 images, this remarkable survey--the only anthology of its kind--showcases the inspiring creativity and ingenuity of 80 up-and-coming photographic artists. For the second incarnation of this international photography competition, curators at the world-renowned Musee de l'Elysee in Lausanne, Switzerland, selected the winning candidates from hundreds of entries submitted by some 120 of the world's top photography schools. The selection was made with one key question in mind: is the photographer likely to be known in 20 years' time? The variety of subjects and techniques on view reflects the astonishing diversity of worldwide talent that has recently emerged, as contemporary photography reinvents itself and its audience expands accordingly. Useful reference materials include biographical details of each of the 80 photographers included and updates on the winning photographers from the first edition, many of whom have gone on to forge impressive international careers. "reGeneration 2: Tomorrow's Photographers Today" proves that the art of photography is alive and well, and that practitioners of extraordinary talent are well on their way to making their mark.

Centering Prayer and the Healing of the Unconscious

Fr. O Madagain illustrates how, by bringing the insights of contemporary psychology to bear on this ancient method of prayer, Fr. Keating has not only revitalized the contemplative tradition, but also has enabled it to become a powerful tool for people of faith to gain insight into themselves and God, whom Keating calls the "divine healer." Fr. O Madagain also unpacks the processes at work in centering prayer and clears up some of the common misunderstandings that surround it.
