    Jewish Roots - " The Synagogue's Controversy With Paul "

    in Spirituality

    "The Synagogue's Controversy with Paul"

    St. Paul, A.K.A. Saul of Tarsus wrote a great portion of the New Testament. Most Christians understand that. But what's NOT typically understood is why he was so hated in his day by the religious authorities. Yet it was that animosity that soured church-synagogue relations for over 1500 years. Today the Jewish community is perfectly happy that Christians read Paul and desire to be good Christians, as long as they don't try to convert them. But in Bible times Paul was accused of subverting the civil order, of poisoning the faith of the faithful, of causing riots in the major cities of the Empire. There was a murder contract on his life similar to what the ayatollahs of Iran did with author Salmon Rushdie, when they issued their "fatwa" against him. The Synagogue considered Paul to be one of the most dangerous men in the world because of what he taught: that both Jew and gentile escape the wrath of God based on no good deeds that either does, but entirely on the "good deeds" of Another. And 2000 years ago, those were "fighting words". This Thursday we ask "why". Tune in and take notes! Your host, Rev. Rick Anderson, on "Jewish Roots", each Thursday 9:30-10:30 pm EST. Listen LIVE through Twitter, LinkedIn, GooglePlus and Facebook/com/fougcrew.

    American Blood And Treasure "Obamas World Order"

    in Politics Conservative

    It's three years since the Cairo speech. Look around. The Islamic world is convulsed with an explosion of anti-Americanism. From Tunisia to Lebanon, American schools, businesses and diplomatic facilities set ablaze. A U.S. ambassador and three others murdered in Benghazi. The black flag of Salafism, of which al-Qaida is a prominent element, raised over our embassies in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Sudan.The administration, staggered and confused, blames it all on a 14-minute trailer for a film no one has seen and may not even exist. What else can it say? Admit that its doctrinal premises were supremely naive and its policies deeply corrosive to American influence? Religious provocations are endless. (Ask Salman Rushdie.) Resentment about the five-century decline of the Islamic world is a constant. What's new — the crucial variable — is the unmistakable sound of a superpower in retreat. Ever since Henry Kissinger flipped Egypt from the Soviet to the American camp in the early 1970s, the U.S. had dominated the region. No longer."It's time," declared Obama to wild applause of his convention, "to do some nation-building right here at home." He'd already announced a strategic pivot from the Middle East to the Pacific. Made possible because "the tide of war is receding."Nonsense. From the massacres in Nigeria to the charnel house that is Syria, violence has, if anything, increased. What is receding is Obama's America.

    Signe Pike, author of Faery Tale

    in Books

    A memoir of enchantment, beauty, and self-discovery.
    In search of something to believe in once more, Signe Pike left behind a career in Manhattan to undertake a magical journey - literally. In a sweeping tour of Mexico, England, Ireland, Scotland and beyond, she takes readers to dark glens and abandoned forests, ancient sacred sites and local pubs, seeking the people who might still believe in the elusive beings we call faeries. As Pike attempts to connect with the spirit world - and reconnect with her own sense of wonder - she comes to view both herself and the world around her in a profoundly new light. Captivating, full of heart and unabashedly whimsical, Faery Tale is more than a memoir - it's the story of rekindling that spark of belief that makes even the most skeptical among us feel like a child again.
    Signe Pike worked for Random House and Penguin before leaving New York City to write Faery Tale. The memoir earned a "Best of 2010" nod from Kirkus Reviews in addition to receiving glowing reviews from Harper's Bazaar, Women's Adventure Magazine, and renowned spiritual leader Marianne Williamson. Pike has been featured on National Public Radio's “To the Best of Our Knowledge” along with Salman Rushdie, Neil Gaiman, and A.S. Byatt. She currently works as a freelance editor and writes full time in Charleston, where she is at work on her next exploration into things unseen.

    Joy Keys chats with Author Abdulrazak Gurnah

    in Books

    Novelist Abdulrazak Gurnah was born in 1948 on the island of Zanzibar off the coast of East Africa. He came to Britain as a student in 1968 and now teaches literature at the University of Kent. He is associate editor of the journal Wasafiri.
    His first three novels, Memory of Departure (1987), Pilgrims Way (1988) and Dottie (1990), document the immigrant experience in contemporary Britain from different perspectives. His fourth novel, Paradise (1994), is set in colonial East Africa during the First World War and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize for Fiction. Admiring Silence (1996) tells the story of a young man who leaves Zanzibar and emigrates to England where he marries and becomes a teacher. A return visit to his native country 20 years later profoundly affects his attitude towards both himself and his marriage. By the Sea (2001), is narrated by Saleh Omar, an elderly asylum-seeker living in an English seaside town. In 2007 he edited The Cambridge Companion to Salman Rushdie. His novel Desertion (2005)was shortlisted for a 2006 Commonwealth Writers Prize. His latest novel is The Last Gift (2011).
     
    The Last Gift: One day, long before the troubles, he slipped away without saying a word to anyone and never went back. And then another day, forty three years later, he collapsed just inside the front door of his house in a small English town. It was late in the day when it happened, on his way home after work, but it was also late in the day altogether. He had left things for too long and there was no one to blame for it but himself.
