Secularisation, Pentecostalism and Violence

Secularisation, Pentecostalism and Violence

Author: David Martin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 12/12/2019

In this book David Martin brings together a coherent summary of his many years of ground-breaking academic work on the sociology of religion. Covering key and contentious areas from the last half-century such as secularisation, religion and violence, and the global rise of Pentecostalism, it presents a critical recuperation of these themes, some of them first initiated by the author, and a review of their reception history. It then reviews that reception history in a way that discusses not only the subjects themselves, but also the academic practices that have surrounded them. As such, this collection is vital reading for all academics with an interest in David Martin's work, as well as those involved with the sociology of religion and the study of secularisation more generally.

And where was the radio station located that heralded his appearance in Yugoslavia?3. What decision was reached at Teheran with respect to Tito and Mihailovich?4. How was the ALLIED military intelligence about Yugoslavia falsified?5. Why did Churchill say of Yugoslavia, "e;I was deceived and badly informed."e;David Martin was born in Ontario, Canada, in 1914. Before World War II, he wrote on Canadian affairs for Current History, The Nation, The New Republic, the New Leader, and other journals. He joined the Canadian Air Force in October 1942, became a pilot, and flew on the Burmese frontier. He was honorably discharged in 1946.With a Foreword by Dame Rebecca West, one of Mihailovich's most avid supporters."e;Solid reading"e;-Kirkus Review

Author: David Martin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/08/2018

The world today claims that your identity is entirely defined by you. As parents raising children in this world, how do we teach children the gospel and explain how it impacts gender identity? This book of letters written to the author's children follows the overarching story line of the Bible, making it clear that transgenderism is a symptom of a far deeper problem that only Jesus can heal. Written with biblical clarity, sensitivity, and an awareness that people affected by these issues are people who need Jesus, just like everyone else, this book will help parents who are looking for guidance on how to explain gender issues to their children.
