For many conservative Christian Americans and Israelis, this was tantamount to the United States agreeing to Jewish control over Jerusalem. As it stands now, the U.S. has a consulate in Jerusalem, yet no country houses their embassy in Jerusalem due to the conflicting claims of the Israelis and Palestinians. The political issue is just one more reminder of how important Jerusalem is as both a secular and religious flashpoint.<br /><br />One of the oldest cities in the world, Jerusalem is a holy and special city to the three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Throughout its more than 6,000 year history, Jerusalem has been a center of contention, from conflicting clans to warring states. In addition to its religious significance, Jerusalem’s strategic location has also made the city desirable throughout history. <br /><br />While people in the West are more familiar with Jerusalem’s importance to Jews and Christians, Jerusalem’s particular importance to the religion of Islam is without question one of the major sticking points in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Prior to Israeli control, Jerusalem had been predominantly controlled by Muslim rulers since the 7th century and had been used as a type of political currency, legitimizing the ruling dynasty’s claim over the city. This right of control by Muslims was viewed no more differently than control over Mecca and Medina in the Arabian Peninsula. For the world’s Muslim population, Jerusalem is a holy site because Muslims believe the Prophet Muhammad visited Jerusalem where he ascended to heaven during the famous “Night Journey.” There was also a period of time during the Prophet’s life when Muslims prayed in the direction of Jerusalem, as opposed to Mecca. Just as in Judaism and Christianity, Jerusalem plays a central role in End of Days prophecies in Islamic theology. <br /><br />As a result, Jerusalem has been an important symbol for Muslims for nearly 1,300 years, and it has played a crucial political role throughout the history of Islamic civilization as this important city has passed from ruler to ruler and dynasty to dynasty. Now that the city is again controlled by a Jewish state, Jerusalem has even further implications for various religious groups, and it will certainly affect the conflict-wrought region.<br /> <br />Jerusalem and Islam: The History and Legacy of the Holy City’s Importance to Muslims examines the tumultuous history of Jerusalem and its relationship to the Islamic world. Along with pictures depicting important people, places, and events, you will learn about Jerusalem and Islam like never before.

Dans l'Alexandrie des Ptolémées, du III<sup>e au I</sup>er siècle avant notre ère, comment les Juifs de la diaspora, loin de la Palestine et loin du Temple, ont-ils vécu et transmis leur tradition ? En la traduisant en grec, langue véhiculaire de la Méditerranée et de la Septante, ils ont donné naissance à un corpus nouveau, véritable relais entre la Bible d'Israël et la théologie de l'Église. De Démétrius au Pseudo-Phocylide, en passant par Artapan, Aristobule, Aristée l'Historien, Eupolème ou le Pseudo-Eupolème, ce recueil présente les textes sauvegardés et significatifs d'un chaînon essentiel de la pensée et de la littérature antiques, combinant les méthodes hébraïques de lecture et les techniques helléniques d'écriture. Ce recueil inédit sera précieux à qui s'intéresse au judaïsme ancien, au christianisme primitif et à la critique exégétique. Un monument.

<h2>“Simply nothing has escaped his eagle eye; even the most hidden remarks on a problem have been detected by him and entered in his book.” Carl Clemen, <em>The Biblical World</em></h2><br /><br />Emil Schürer’s work is the authoritative study of Jewish history during classical times.<br /><br />This work does not just cover the lifetime of Jesus, but instead it takes the reader from 175 B.C. through to the end of the rebellion under Hadrian in 135 A. D.<br /><br />Schürer, in the first two volumes of his work, uncovers the political leaders of the Jewish people during this period as they struggled for freedom under the threat and oppression of the Roman Empire.<br /><br />Through volumes three and four Schürer exposes the cultural and religious underpinnings of the Jewish people over these centuries: how the temple of Jerusalem functioned, how they related to the Hellenistic world that surrounded them, how their leaders created laws and ruled while remaining under Roman jurisdiction, as well as theological debates that were being made at this time.<br /><br />Schürer also examines not just the Jewish society centred around Jerusalem, but also those spread further afield across Asia and the Mediterranean.<br /><br />“Dr. Schürer has produced a work which has no parallel … a perfect and indispensable work.” Dr. Adolf Harnack<br /><br />Emil Schürer was a German theologian, made famous for his study of the Jewish people during the time of Jesus Christ. He studied in Erlangen, Berlin and Heidelberg, and took his doctorate in Leipzig. <em> A History of the Jewish People in the Time of Jesus Christ</em> was first published in 1891 and Schürer died in 1910.

<b>In this book, Clarence Larkin explains the various elements of the spiritual world of Christianity; including demons; the underworld; resurrection; and man's relationship to the spirits.</b> <br /><br /><br /> <br />Unafraid to tackle topics often ignored or relegated to the barest mention by other theologians, in <i>The Spirit World</i> Clarence Larkin delves deeply into the topics such as hell, Satan and demonic manifestations. His accessible style is made further comprehensible by the myriad drawings and charts, which visually portray concepts which first appeared in the Bible. <br /><br /><br /> <br />For decades in his role as a preacher and theologian, Larkin immersed himself in the depths of Biblical lore. The studies he undertook ranged from explaining the obscurer or more cryptic books of the Bible, to clarifying the manifestations of spirits good and evil, and how these corporeal beings interact with one another and with humans. The machinations behind phenomena such as resurrection, fallen angels and the journey of the soul to the afterlife are topics which Larkin explains insightfully. <br /><br /><br /> <br />This edition of <i>The Spirit World</i> contains all of the original illustrations and charts which Larkin used to better clarify his points. Perfect for Bible students or enthusiasts of Christian lore, Larkin's books remain authoritative, relevant and useful to this day. <br /><br /><br /> <br />Readers new to Larkin's works should be mindful that some of his larger charts contain text in very small print. These can however be read and fully discerned with the help of a magnifying glass.

De Jean-Paul II, consacré par les médias comme l'« athlète de Dieu », pape de la mondialisation, on croyait tout savoir. Il nous manquait cependant tout de l'intimité quotidienne du spirituel et du mystique qu'il aura aussi et d'abord été. Seul Stanislaw Dziwisz, son secrétaire particulier pendant plus de quarante ans, pouvait nous la communiquer. C'est chose faite avec ce livre d'entretiens menés par le vaticanologue Gian Franco Svidercoschi. Au cours de ce dialogue à la fois grave, joyeux et direct, nourri de portraits, d'anecdotes et de révélations, Stanislaw Dziwisz revient sur tous les moments forts dont il a été témoin où, dans le tourbillon de l'histoire, se sont manifestés des éclairs de sainteté émanant de cette vie intérieure dont Jean-Paul II gardait le secret. Aussi est-ce à travers ses yeux et son coeur que nous revivons les épisodes clés du pontificat, qui prennent tout leur sens à cette autre lumière. Un témoignage d'exception, un livre bouleversant.
