The question of male headship has remained a vexing and often divisive issue in contemporary Christian thought.

Robert Godfrey, Don Browning, and Mary Gallagher, the essays provide thoughtful commentary and critique, substantively engaging other opinions and contrasting views in a charitable manner

"In 2002, sixty prominent American intellectuals released an open letter defending the use of military force against al-Qa'ida.

"A valuable resource for the specialist and non-specialist alike, The Islam/West Debate chronicles this discussion and includes contributions from both sides of the political spectrum in America and the Middle East, and even al-Qa'ida itself."--BOOK JACKET
Franklin's thrift : the lost history of an American virtue by David Blankenhorn( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Americans today often think of thrift as a negative value & mdash;a miserly hoarding of resources and a denial of pleasure. Even more telling, many Americans don't even think of thrift at all anymore. Franklin & rsquo;s Thrift challenges this state of mind by recovering the rich history of thrift as a quintessentially American virtue. The contributors to this volume trace how, from the eighteenth century on, the idea and practice of thrift has been a robust part of the American vision of economic freedom and social abundance. For Benjamin Franklin, who personified and promoted the idea, thrift mean

In today's consumer-driven society, extolling the virtues of thrift might seem like a quaint relic of a bygone era.

In David Blankenhorn's new compendium, Thrift: A Cyclopedia, he reminds readers of a time when thrift was one of America's most cherished cultural values

Thrift : a cyclopedia by David Blankenhorn( Book )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

<DIV>In today's consumer-driven society, extolling the virtues of thrift might seem like a quaint relic of a bygone era. Americans have embraced the ideas of easy credit, instant gratification, and spending as a tool to combat everything from recessions to the effects of natural disasters and terrorist attacks. In David Blankenhorn's new compendium, Thrift: A Cyclopedia, he reminds readers of a time when thrift was one of America's most cherished cultural values.</DIV><DIV>Gathering hundreds of quotes, sayings, proverbs, and photographs of Blankenhorn's vast personal collection of thrift memorabilia, this handsome book is a treasure trove of wisdom from around the world and throughout the ages. Readers will find insights from such varied sources as the Bible, the Qur'an, William Shakespeare, Karl Marx, Oscar Wilde, J.C. Penney, and Warren Buffett. Entries are serious, inspiring, occasionally humorous, and they will go a great way toward expanding the narrow perception of thrift as simple penny pinching; replacing that myopic view with one of a broader thrift-one that, as William H. Kniffen puts it, "earns largely and spends wisely" and leads to a life of independence and comfort well into old age.</DIV><DIV>Educators and parents will find ample wisdom to pass on to the next generation about the value of hard work, saving for the future, and generosity. Historians will delight in the glimpses into the U.S. thrift movement of the 1920s. Those seeking encouragement and inspiration will find much material here for reflection on the ideals of good stewardship, diligence, and sound financial planning. As our society ails from wastefulness, growing economic inequality, indebtedness, and runaway consumerism, there could be no stronger cure than this powerful little word, "thrift", which finds its root meaning in the word "thrive."</DIV>
