The feast of fools; a theological essay on festivity and fantasy by Harvey Cox( Book )

75 editions published between 1969 and 1977 in 5 languages and held by 1,953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author defines festivity as the capacity for genuine revelry and joyous celebration and fantasy as the faculty for envisioning radically alternative life situations.

Fire from heaven : the rise of pentecostal spirituality and the reshaping of religion in the twenty-first century by Harvey Cox( Book )

32 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unlike traditional Protestant and Catholic churches, whose memberships are dwindling, pentecostalism, the most experiential branch of Christianity, has become the fastest-growing form of worship on Earth, and, if present trends continue, could surpass even Catholicism by the turn of the century. From its obscure beginnings a hundred years ago in a tiny black church on Azusa Street in Los Angeles it has grown, especially in the past two decades, to over 410 million people worldwide, becoming the dominant expression of Christian worship in mega-cities throughout the world, from New York and Mexico City to Seoul, Korea. In an effort to understand its extraordinary appeal Harvey Cox has traveled the world to speak and worship with pentecostal congregations on four continents, and he has come to the conclusion that this explosion of spirituality represents a tidal change in what religion itself is and what it means to people."--Jacket

How to read the Bible by Harvey Cox( Book )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and Chinese and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renowned religion expert and Harvard Divinity School professor Harvey Cox deepens our experience of the Bible, revealing the three primary ways we read it, why each is important, and how we can integrate these approaches for a richer understanding and appreciation of key texts throughout the Old and New Testaments. The Bible is the heart of devotional practice, a source of guidance and inspiration rich with insightful life lessons. On the other side of the spectrum, academics have studied the Bible using scientific analysis to examine its historical significance and meaning. The gap between these readings has resulted in a schism with far-reaching implications: Without historical context, ordinary people are left to interpret the Bible literally, while academic readings overlook the deeply personal connections established in church pews, choir benches, and backyard study groups. In How To Read the Bible, Cox explores three different lenses commonly used to bring the Bible into focus: Literary--as narrative stories of family conflict, stirring heroism, and moral dilemmas; History--as classic texts with academic and theological applications; Activism--as a source of dialogue and engagement to be shared and applied to our lives. By bringing these together, Cox shows the Bible in all its rich diversity and meaning and offers us a contemporary activist version that wrestles with issues of feminism, war, homosexuality, and race. The result is a living resource that is perpetually evolving as our understanding changes and deepens from generation to generation."--Publisher information

Common prayers : faith, family, and a Christian's journey through the Jewish year by Harvey Cox( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Harvey Cox, the distinguished Christian theologian and scholar of religion, has a Jewish wife and son. From the Passover meal to the weekly Sabbath candles, from the marriage chuppah to the walls of old Jerusalem, he has shared in the joys and responsibilities of the Jewish faith. Celebrating the Jewish holidays, he has had the opportunity to reflect on the essence of Judaism and its complex relationship to Christianity, an experience that continues to deepen his understanding of his own faith. In Common Prayers, Cox takes readers on an intimate journey through the Jewish year. He illuminates the meanings of Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah and the "December madness" of Chanukah and Christmas, as well as those of less well known holidays such as Sukkot and Simchat Torah and of events such as death and marriage. Describing in accessible language the holidays' personal, historical, and spiritual significance and the lessons they offer us, Cox brings a unique perspective to this encounter with a faith not his own. As seen through his eyes, the Jewish holidays become a wellspring of discovery and reflection."--Jacket

The market as god by Harvey Cox( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Market has deified itself, according to Harvey Cox's brilliant exegesis. And all of the world's problems--widening inequality, a rapidly warming planet, the injustices of global poverty--are consequently harder to solve. Only by tracing how the Market reached its divine status can we hope to restore it to its proper place as servant of humanity.--

Lamentations and the Song of songs by Harvey Cox( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Lamentations, well-known theologian Harvey Cox draws on a wide array of sources including poetry, novels, films, paintings, and photography to offer a contemporary theological reading of Lamentations which is provocative and sure to stir numerous theological reflections and responses. The biblical book of Song of Songs has historically been seen as a book pointing to Christ's love for the church and has been interpreted in allegorical ways. Author Stephanie Paulsell suggests that the Song can still have profound meaning for us, teaching us "to love not only what we can see shining on the surface but also those depths of the other which are out of our reach."--Publisher's description
The persistence of religion : comparative perspectives on modern spirituality by Harvey Cox( Book )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the nineteenth century, Nietzsche famously announced that God was dead. In the twentieth century, an increasing reliance on science and technology led to a widespread rejection of belief on the grounds of its irrationality. Yet for all the skepticism directed towards it, religion has not died. In fact, the opposite has occurred: it has persisted and proliferated." "In this wide-ranging dialogue, two leading commentators on religion address - from their different but complementary traditions of Christianity and Buddhism - the continuing appeal of spirituality to people eager to explore fundamental questions of meaning and identity. The authors indicate that science, for all the benefits it has conferred, has limits of explanation. It may be able to show how, but not necessarily why."--Jacket
