    A Sign of Mystery, 1st Edition

    By Dustin Resch

    The doctrine of the virgin birth is intricately woven within the texture of the liturgy, theology and piety of all branches of the Christian Church.

    Asceticism, the Body and the Spiritual in the Late Antique Era, 1st Edition

    Hunt examines the apparent paradox that Jesus' earthly existence and post resurrection appearances are experienced through consummately physical actions and attributes yet some ascetics within the Christian tradition appear to seek to deny the value of the human body, to find it deadening of…

    Africa in Western Spirituality, Philosophy, and Literary Theory, 1st Edition

    By A. Lassissi Odjo

    Africa’s history has been misrepresented by the outside world, especially by the Judeo-Christian West.
