              By Jenkins, Philip

Readers of Bart Ehrman's God's Problem,John Selby Spong's The Sins of Scripture, andJenkins's own The Jesus Wars, as well as every Christian eager to squarethe recurrent violence of the Scripture with Christianity's enduring message ofpeace, will find these difficult questions explored in full in Laying Downthe Sword.

              This work gives an account of cults and anti-cult scares in American history. Contrary to popular belief, cults were by no means an invention of the 1960s. Most of the images and stereotypes surrounding religious fringe movements can be traced to the 19th century.

              This text disputes the myth that Jesus was a subversive mystic whose true ideas were suppressed by early Church authorities. It offers as evidence the fact that supporting texts for this idea are younger than the gospels and resists its revolutionary claims as an alternative Chri...stianity.

The New Faces of Christianity provocative and incisive-and indispensable.

              Images of Terror: What We Can and Can't Know about Terrorism

              Images of Terror: What We Can and Can't Know about Terrorism (Hardback)

              As in the study of any social problem, to understand terrorism we must understand how certain interest groups and bureaucratic agencies present their particular views of terrorist phenomena, and how they strive and try to establish these as the ones that come to be accepted as ob...viously correct. We also need to consider their audiences. Why do the media accept or reject certain views of terrorism? Why does the public accept one kind of rhetorical presentation rather than another? How aYe popular attitudes shaped and reshaped by the images and stereotypes offered in the mass media, and in popular culture? When we appreciate the processes involved in making news about terrorism, we are better able to sift critically the claims that are made, and to evaluate policies. Images of Terror provides a critical guide to the images of terrorism that we see daily in the mass media. All too often, scholars and journalists accept uncritically the interpretations of terrorism they receive from governments and official agencies. Our perceptions of terrorism are formed by the interaction of bureaucratic agencies, academics and private experts, and the mass media. Yet the images and stereotypes offered do not necessarily reflect objective reality. Jenkins argues that terrorism, like most other problems, is socially constructed. He does not suggest that terrorism is not a real problem, an authentic menace, or that society should not respond promptly and effectively to terrorist threats. But rather than being something understood in the same way by people in different societies and different eras, the concept of terrorism is shaped by social and political processes, by bureaucratic needs and media structures. This process of construction applies both to the overall concept, and to specific movements, to groups and their actions. For the foreseeable future, terrorism is likely to remain a dominant issue in the political life of the United States, and indeed of much of the world. This bo
