When Jesus became God : the epic fight over Christ's divinity in the last days of Rome by Richard E Rubenstein( Book )

"Three hundred years after Jesus' crucifixion, the Roman Empire witnessed the first major turning point in the history of Christianity. The violent debate, now known as the Arian Controversy, lasted more than sixty years, dividing the Roman Empire and forever changing the face of the Christian Church. Was Jesus of Nazareth God Himself, walking the earth in human form? Or was he a uniquely holy man adopted by God as His Son and raised to divine rank?" "Richard E. Rubenstein, an expert on religious conflict, transports us to an empire fraught with contradiction and turmoil." "The protagonists were Arius, a learned and eloquent priest, and Athanasius, a brilliant and dedicated, yet violent, bishop. Arius argued that Jesus was less than God and that his true role was to serve as a model of virtue for all humanity. Athanasius thought this was heresy and an assault on Jesus himself. Between these formidable adversaries stood Constantine the Great, Rome's first Christian emperor." "Rubenstein brings us into the debates of religious leaders and politicians and the struggles of commoners as we witness the battle over the true identity of Jesus Christ and the meaning of his mission on earth."--Jacket

Europe was in the long slumber of the Dark Ages, the Roman Empire was in tatters, and the Greek language was all but forgotten, until a group of Arab, Jewish, and Christian scholars rediscovered and translated the works of Aristotle.

Thus saith the Lord : the revolutionary moral vision of Isaiah and Jeremiah by Richard E Rubenstein( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In ancient Judea, Jeremiah and Isaiah advised kings and priests and watched the great armies of the ancient Near East sweep across the desert, threatening and overtaking their tiny country with its burgeoning faith. Across centuries a new view emerged based on their words: Might does not make right; we are all the children of one God. Both the beautiful words of Isaiah and the frightening words of Jeremiah helped form our contemporary ideas of justice, ethics, and faith. Richard Rubenstein shows us the evolution of our own moral codes and how they transformed the god of the Israelites from a local deity into Adonai, the universal sovereign who requires ethical behavior and demands the pursuit of justice for all people.--From publisher description."--From source other than the Library of Congress

Resolving structural conflicts : how violent systems can be transformed by Richard E Rubenstein( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyses structural or system-generated conflicts and poses the fundamental question: 'If there are systems generating this conflict, how can they be changed?' It begins by showing how systems established to maintain a peaceful social order sometimes end by generating serious violence. After analyzing conflicts between socioeconomic classes, religious communities, domestic political groupings, and imperial forces and insurgents, the book discusses how to envision and implement new methods of transforming violence-prone systems. This discussion invites readers to think beyond the conventional categories often used to analyze social conflicts and challenges those interested in peace to recognize the need for a new, dynamic field of study and practice devoted to eliminating or mitigating system-generated violence. One of the most challenging and controversial questions today is how to resolve structural conflicts - serious clashes generated by the normal operations of certain social, cultural, and political systems

İsa nasıl tanrı oldu? by Richard E Rubenstein( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and Turkish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of Jesus is well known, as is the story of Christian persecutions during the Roman Empire. The history of fervent debate, civil strife, and bloody riots within the Christian community as it was coming into being, however, is a side of ancient history rarely described. Richard E. Rubenstein takes the reader to the streets of the Roman Empire during the fourth century, when a fateful debate over the divinity of Jesus Christ is being fought. Ruled by a Christian emperor, followers of Jesus no longer fear for the survival of their monotheistic faith but break into two camps regarding the direction of their worship. Is Jesus the son of God and therefore not the same as God' Or is Jesus precisely God on earth and therefore equal to Him' The vicious debate is led by two charismatic priests. Arius, an Alexandrian priest and poet, preaches that Jesus, though holy, is less than God. Athanasius, a brilliant and violent bishop, sees any diminution of Jesus' godhead as the work of the devil. Between them stands Alexander, the powerful Bishop of Alexandria, who must find a resolution that will keep the empire united and the Christian faith alive. With thorough historical, religious, and social research, Rubenstein vividly recreates one of the most critical moments in the history of religion
