Exile: Portraits of the Jewish Diaspora Audiobook

Exile: Portraits of the Jewish Diaspora

Author: Annika Hernroth-Rothstein Narrator: Rebecca Gibel Release Date: July 2020

An innovative and poignant exploration of diverse Jewish communities throughout the diaspora. It's been two thousand years after most Jews were exiled from Jerusalem and the rest of the Holy Land, and two generations since the Holocaust led to the founding of modern Israel. Still, small yet resilient Jewish communities continue to endure and thrive around the world-sometimes in the most unlikely places, and often in the face of extreme persecution. Journalist Annika Hernroth-Rothstein has spent two years of her life uncovering the hidden beauty of these largely forgotten Jewish enclaves. Drawing from her personal experience of growing up as a Jew in a tiny village in Sweden, Annika brings brilliant life to the history, culture, and most importantly, the fascinating people she's met on her journey. Part sociology, part history lesson, and always a love letter to the Jewish people, Exile is an indispensable guide to rediscovering forgotten pieces of a rich Jewish history.

The Book of Enoch the Prophet Audiobook

The Book of Enoch the Prophet

Author: R.H. Charles Narrator: Roger Clark Release Date: May 2020

Now available in audio, the bestselling edition of the most important non-canonical apocalyptic text. This superlative translation by noted scholar and theologian R. H. Charles is one of the best and most complete available. The introduction by esoteric bookseller and antiquarian bookseller R. A. Gilbert helps place The Book of Enoch in historical context and dispels many of the dubious interpretations previously attributed to it. The Book of Enoch's vision of the Apocalypse takes a very different view than that of western Christians, although it is part of the biblical canon for Ethiopian and Eritrean Christians. According to Enoch, the wicked shall be cast out and the good will realize a literal heaven on Earth. The prophecies also contain the lost 'Book of Noah,' early references to a messiah as 'Christ,' and an accounting of the angels and subsequent creation of demons.

What Every Christian Needs to Know About Passover: What It Means and Why It Matters Audiobook

What Every Christian Needs to Know About Passover: What It Means and Why It Matters

Author: Evan Moffic Narrator: Barry Abrams Release Date: April 2020

For millennia, the Passover celebration has held so much meaning for the Jews, but other faiths are just beginning to grasp the depth of its significance. For modern-day Christians, who may be celebrating at home or at church, it is the Last Supper Jesus had with his disciples before giving his life for humanity. Nevertheless, some fundamental questions about the celebration still trouble Christians. They include: Why should such an ancient custom matter to us? What is the proper way of observing this day? How can Jews and Christians work together to honor this occasion? Popular speaker and religious writer Rabbi Evan Moffic now seeks to answer these and other essential questions about the Passover in his book What Every Christian Needs To Know About Passover. A frequent speaker at churches large and small across the world, Rabbi Moffic brings a unique voice to Christian listeners. Indeed, the depth of understating regarding the Last Supper that he brings to this work will completely alter how Christians prepare for Easter and mark Communion. If you are a modern Christian who seeks to deepen your understanding of the faith you practice, this book has it all.

The Abrahamic Religions: A Very Short Introduction Audiobook

The Abrahamic Religions: A Very Short Introduction

Author: Charles L. Cohen Narrator: Jim Denison Release Date: April 2020

In the book of Genesis, God bestows a new name upon Abram-Abraham, a father of many nations. With this name and his Covenant, Abraham would become the patriarch of three of the world's major religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Connected by their mutual-if differentiated-veneration of the One God proclaimed by Abraham, these traditions share much beyond their origins in the ancient Israel of the Old Testament. This Very Short Introduction explores the intertwined histories of these monotheistic religions, from the emergence of Christianity and Islam to the violence of the Crusades and the cultural exchanges of al-Andalus. Each religion continues to be shaped by this history but has also reacted to the forces of modernity and politics. Movements such as the Reformation and that led by seventh-century Kharijites have emerged, intentioned to reform or restore traditional religious practice but quite different in their goals and effects. Relationships with states, among them Israel and Saudi Arabia, have also figured importantly in their development. The Abrahamic Religions: A Very Short Introduction brings these traditions together into a common narrative, lending much needed context to the story of Abraham and his descendants.

The Passover Haggadah: A Biography Audiobook

The Passover Haggadah: A Biography

Author: Vanessa L. Ochs Narrator: Suzanne Toren Release Date: March 2020

The life and times of a treasured book read by generations of Jewish families at the seder table Every year at Passover, Jews around the world gather for the seder, a festive meal where family and friends come together to sing, pray, and enjoy traditional food while retelling the biblical story of the Exodus. The Passover Haggadah provides the script for the meal and is a religious text unlike any other. It is the only sacred book available in so many varietiesfrom the Maxwell House edition of the 1930s to the countercultural Freedom Sederand it is the rare liturgical work that allows people with limited knowledge to conduct a complex religious service. The Haggadah is also the only religious book given away for free at grocery stores as a promotion. Vanessa Ochs tells the story of this beloved book, from its emergence in antiquity as an oral practice to its vibrant proliferation today. Ochs provides a lively and incisive account of how the foundational Jewish narrative of liberation is remembered in the Haggadah. She discusses the books origins in biblical and rabbinical literature, its flourishing in illuminated manuscripts in the medieval period, and its mass production with the advent of the printing press. She looks at Haggadot created on the kibbutz, those reflecting the Holocaust, feminist and LGBTQ-themed Haggadot, and even one featuring a popular television show, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Ochs shows how this enduring work of liturgy that once served to transmit Jewish identity in Jewish settings continues to be reinterpreted and reimagined to share the message of freedom for all.
