Summary Book and excerpt Beyond Abuse in the Christian Home :
Download or Read book Beyond Abuse in the Christian Home written by Catherine Clark Kroeger and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2008-08-15 with total page 254 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: In January 2004 a newly founded evangelical organization called PASCH was formed. The word denotes the Passover or time of new beginnings--when God kept people safe in their own homes before leading them into freedom from abuse and oppression. Yet the word PASCH also stands for Peace and Safety in the Christian Home. PASCH began as a small group of therapists, sociologists, domestic-violence experts, clergy, biblical scholars, survivors--and dedicated Christians. In essence, PASCH was born out of the cries, confusion, and frustration of the people of God. As we encountered many horrifying situations of domestic abuse in Christian homes, those of us who seek to address various aspects of the issue concluded that we needed a fellowship of concerted study, prayer, and action. It was the dream of Catherine Clark Kroeger that an edited book might emerge from the 2005 and 2006 PASCH conferences in order that the papers, presentations, and discussions might be widely available. We found that to make that happen, we needed to work together: that each of us possessed one piece of the puzzle, and that by God's grace we could collectively begin to put the pieces together. The topic of abuse is ugly, which is why so many Christians shy away from discussing it. But in this volume we have tried to present an accurate, faith-based analysis of abuse in the Christian family context. We hope that various chapters stimulate discussion--sometimes debate--and in so doing prompt pastor and people to action. We call on you the reader to consider the various ideas and perspectives offered throughout the book. Hopefully each chapter will prompt you to consider afresh how you conceptualize violence among families of faith. Like you, the reader, the contributors to our collection come from various faith traditions, work in different contexts, and see the issue in part based on their own narrative and training. Yet, despite our differences--and our ongoing debates--we are unanimous that violence has no place in the home. Every home should be a safe place; every home a shelter. When abuse occurs in families of faith, it is the responsibility of the church to offer compassion and support to victims and to call those who act abusively to accountability and justice. Our edited collection includes · Dan Allender speaking from the heart about the impact of the fall on relationships between men and women; · Al Miles reflecting on his pastoral experience of the difficulties and opportunities of speaking out against violence in Christian families; · Bruce and Karen McAndless-Davis offering one couple's story of the long journey toward accountability and dramatic change; · Julie Owens retelling her own dramatic story of abuse, the life imprisonment of her ex-partner and what she wished every pastor knew about domestic violence.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: This book came about during a time of despairity. I had lost my job and had been out of work for over two years. I then decided to look within to try to help my family stay affloat in our new world of so many uncertainties. I wrote this book out of my pain, insecurities, struggles, and many adversities. This book was written from one victim to another to help them realize that "we" can take all that we ́ve been through and become empowered by it rather than to blame others or sulk. This book was designed to help bring the winner out of people that has once felt like a failure, it ́s also to free people that has victimized others and encourage them to come to true repentance & completely change their way of thinking as well as their way of life. This book was written by a tender flower that throughout the process of writting this book has since grown into a cement rose. I ́m much stronger then I used to be but even with all that has transpired in my life, I still dare to truly love others and genuinely care about them. Thank you for reading my books, God bless!

Download or Read book Meter as Rhythm written by Christopher Hasty and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2020-04-01 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Drawing on insights from the modern "process" philosophy of Bergson, William James, and A. N. Whitehead, Christopher Hasty's Meter as Rhythm releases meter from its mechanistic connotations and recognizes it as a concrete, visceral agent of musical expression. Hasty reinterprets oppositions of law and freedom, structure and process, determinacy and indeterminacy to form a theory that engages diverse repertories and aesthetic issues. The revised 20th anniversary edition facilitates the work's current contexts of application, from new subfields in ethnomusicology and music cognition to non-music fields like literary studies, physics, and biology.
