A noble death : suicide and martyrdom among Christians and Jews in antiquity by Arthur J Droge( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The right to die with dignity has emerged as a crucial issue in the 1990s. As reports of family- or doctor-assisted suicides increase, the issue of voluntary death is occupying an increasingly prominent place in our national consciousness. From theologians, medical ethicists, and talk-show hosts to people facing the issue in their own lives, all are participants in the debate, each seeking to influence and control the discourse on suicide and euthanasia. Now, this
The Qurʼān : a new annotated translation by Arthur J Droge( Book )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new, annotated translation of the Qur'ān is specifically designed to meet the needs of students of religion, and provides them with a one-volume resource comparable to what is available for the Jewish and Christian scriptures. The meticulously crafted translation affords readers not only a better sense of what the Qur'ān says, but how it says it, in a rendition that strives to remain faithful to the way it was originally expressed. Accompanying the translation is an extensive set of annotations. These are keyed to the text for ready reference, and divided according to their boldface topical headings at the bottom of each page. The annotations offer a wealth of linguistic and historical detail to enhance the understanding and appreciation of the text. They also contain abundant references to parallel passages within the Qur'ān, as well as comparatively among the 'scriptures' of Judaism and Christianity. With an introduction, map, timeline, guide to further reading, and comprehensive index, this is the edition of the Qur'ān all students of religion - beginning as well as advanced - will want to possess for their exploration of Islam's central text."--Publisher's website

A noble death : suicide and martyrdom among Jews and Christians in antiquity by Arthur J Droge( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The right to die with dignity has emerged as a crucial issue in the 1990s. As reports of family- or doctor-assisted suicides increase, the issue of voluntary death is occupying an increasingly prominent place in our national consciousness. From theologians, medical ethicists, and talk-show hosts to people facing the issue in their own lives, all are participants in the debate, each seeking to influence and control the discourse on suicide and euthanasia. Now, this pathbreaking study provides a stunning reappraisal of the early history of this controversial human freedom."--BOOK JACKET. "A Noble Death challenges the often unquestioning attitudes we have toward suicide and traces the evolution of these attitudes from the time of Socrates to the present day. Droge and Tabor reveal the extraordinary fact that early Christians and Jews did not absolutely condemn suicide, but instead focused on whether or not it was committed for noble reasons. In fascinating detail, the texts and traditions presented here--from Greek and Roman philosophy, to Judaism, Christianity, and the Bible itself--make clear that the decision to take one's life, or allow it to be taken, was not considered a sin but a noble choice, provided there was sufficient justification for the act."--BOOK JACKET. ""The Bible nowhere proscribes suicide," the authors write. "In fact, there are at least seven individuals in the Bible who take their own lives, and none of them is condemned for the act.... Many [have] a vague notion that the so-called Judeo-Christian tradition speaks decisively against the act of suicide, but just what that objection is, when it developed, and what came before it, are mostly not known.""--BOOK JACKET. "From Socrates' insistence on the requirement of a divine sign to Seneca's emphasis on the unqualified freedom of the individual to Augustine's attempt to restrict that freedom, A Noble Death illustrates how strongly we share these early attitudes toward voluntary death. But the very attempt to find a consensus indicates how the decision to die could--and can--be a conscientious one. Intensely relevant to the contemporary debate, A Noble Death takes the reader on a challenging and instructive journey to the surprising origins of Western culture's thoughts on voluntary death."--BOOK JACKET
Ghostlier demarcations: the »gospels« of Augustus and Mark by Arthur J Droge( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zusammenfassung: Dieser Aufsatz untersucht strukturelle und rhetorische Parallelen zwischen den »Evangelien« von Augustus und Markus: die Konzeption von Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft, die Beschreibung eines »ewigen Königreiches« und insbesondere den von Menschen gemachten Gott, das imperiale Zentrum. Letztlich erscheint die markinische Konstruktion eines Mythos - unabhängig davon, ob dieser eine Art »Gegenentwurf« darstellte - als genauso imperialistisch wie der Mythos, den sie erfolglos zu unterlaufen versuchte

Playful learning lab for kids : whole-body sensory adventures to enhance focus, engagement, and curiosity by Claire Heffron( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Recent research has shown that children learn and develop new skills more quickly when they engage in playful, whole body activities. Movement allows them to refocus their attention, improves brain function, reduces stress, and improves circulation. Not only that, but the more senses that are used for learning, the more likely information is to be stored and retrieved. The activities in Playful Learning Lab for Kids explore concepts in reading, language, math, art, music, science, geography, and social studies, all while engaging children with movements, touch, sound, and sight. Most distinguishing of all, the activities and lessons here include suggestions for tailoring the experience to different levels, making it a book children can grow with. The skills range from visual perceptual skills and spatial awareness, to early geometry concepts, visual motor integration, and fine motor skills."--Amazon.com
