From swastika to Jim Crow( Visual )

Before and during World War II Jewish scholars who escaped Nazi Germany and immigrated to the U.S. were confronted with anti-Semitism at major universities and a public distrust of foreigners. A surprising number secured teaching positions at historically African American colleges in the South. In many cases they formed lasting relationships with their students and had an important impact on the communities in which they lived. This is a story of two cultures, each sharing a burden of oppression, brought together by the tragic circumstances of war
Jesus & Buddha : practicing across traditions( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maybe we don't need to enter a monastery or go to the desert, but some form of discipline may be necessary if we are to move beyond the self as the center of identity and into the liberating vastness of the 'Buddha-field' or the nourishing wholeness of the 'Christ-reality.' Robert Kennedy, Chung Hyun Kyung and Paul Knitter lead us on an adventure through the spiritually rich terrain where Buddhist and Christian paths meet. As they share their experiences, we realize that the questions and struggles that motivate them are our own. And their reflections throw the light back on us. We can see better the prison of our ceaseless preoccupations, our obsessions, our animosities. Perhaps our own notions of the spiritual path have been limited by our need for answers and our desire for comfort? In the end it becomes clear from these witnesses that this is not a journey that depends on concepts and abstractions; rather, this journey is experiential, guided by meditation practice, and the growing insight that arises from it. We see that for these travelers, the path they are pointing us to is infinitely spacious and ultimately fulfilling -- it can hold all of our contradictions and questions as it leads us further and deeper into the 'incomprehensible mystery' that is this life"--Publisher
