To live upon hope : Mohicans and missionaries in the eighteenth-century Northeast by Rachel M Wheeler( )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 1,746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two Northeast Indian communities with similar histories of colonization accepted Congregational and Moravian missionaries, respectively, within five years of one another: the Mohicans of Stockbridge, Massachusetts (1735), and Shekomeko, in Dutchess County, New York (1740). In To Live upon Hope, Rachel Wheeler explores the question of what "missionary Christianity" became in the hands of these two native communities." "Through extensive research, especially in the Moravian records of day-to-day life, Wheeler offers an understanding of the lived experience of Mohican communities under colonialism. She complicates the understanding of eighteenth-century American Christianity by demonstrating that mission programs were not always driven by the destruction of indigenous culture and the advancement of imperial projects. In To Live upon Hope, Wheeler challenges the prevailing view of accommodation or resistance as the two poles of Indian responses to European colonization; colonialism placed severe strains on native peoples, yet Indians also exercised a level of agency and creativity that aided in their survival."--Jacket
Holy feigning : a study in the spirituality of the Apophthegmata Patrum by Rachel M Wheeler( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Apophthegmata Patrum (polularly known as The Sayings of the Desert Fathers [and Mothers]) contains stories of both diabolical deception and holy feigning. Stories of diabolical deception depict demonic forces attempting to persuade Christians living in the late antique Egyptian desert to abandon their commitment to a particular way of life characterized by ascetic and contemplative practices. Stories of holy feigning, on the other hand, show how desert Christians themselves might use deception to persuade either themselves or another person to remain committed to a way of life characterized by ascetic and contemplative practices. Though the motivations behind these two forms of deception contrast with each other, both forms reveal attempts to persuade. As the desert Christians' reasons for feigning were explicitly yoked to an attempt to assist someone to remain committed to a particular expression of Christian spiritual life, a valuation of holiness emerges from these stories, alerting readers to how some early Christian communities valued commitment. Read for transformation, the Apophthegmata Patrum is an important resource for contemporary readers desiring strategies for remaining committed to their own spiritual growth
