New Religious Movements and Rapid Social Change by Professor James A. Beckford

Book Description

The twentieth century has seen a considerable and unexpected proliferation of new religious movements in many parts of the world, often associated with periods of rapid social change. This volume - now available in paper - explains the development and characteristics of these movements comparatively and analyzes their outstanding features. The contributors shows how rapid social change gives rise to novel religious interpretations and how new religious movements, in turn, try to influence the process of change.

Kryptic Model of the Incarnation by Professor James A. Beckford Kryptic Model of the Incarnation, Hardback (December 2014)

Being divine seems to entail being omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent, but the New Testament portrays Jesus as having human properties. It seems logically impossible that any single individual could possess such mutually exclusive sets of properties.

Speaking of God in Thomas Aquinas and Meister Eckhart by Professor James A. Beckford Speaking of God in Thomas Aquinas and Meister Eckhart, Hardback (July 2014)

Going beyond ordinary readings of Aquinas and building a foundation for further insights into the works of both theologians, this book draws out the implications of the thought of Eckhart and Aquinas for contemporary issues, including ecumenical and inter-religious dialogue, liturgy and prayer, and religious inclusivity.
