Running the Road to Galilee - Marie Elizabeth Randall Chandler Preview:

“With too much joy to stand still,” this avid runner’s path is now the place she has been called to do the Lord’s work. “I write Your words with jubilant joy, overflowing with eager enthusiasm, Your Spirit covers each word, bringing forth my steadfast heart, found always in You.” Presenting the last book of the series, Running the Road to Galilee, the author once again brings words impassioned, stirred with a “never-ending zeal.” Thoughts profound and messages memorable, enthusiastic expressions for modern age, with words knowledgeable and wisdom enlightened, as the author’s energetic, rhapsodic devotion to God is set ablaze on each page. The author reflects of a life shining in the abundant glory of God, “living out loud with the Lord’s great joy.” With a likable voice, the author’s strong faith and passion resonates soundly with absolute sincerity and depth of feeling as she affirms the importance of choosing the right road and living a life worthy of the Lord, pursuing His way always. “The joy of the Lord exudes my every fiber, found running with passion burning, praise fixed always on these lips of mine, as I run free, no longer bound to the ways of the world.”.

Operation Peace for Galilee - Richard A. Gabriel Preview:

The first book about the 1982 war in Lebanon, Operation Peace for Galilee is based on hundreds of interviews with the soldiers of both sides, the guerrillas who fought in it, and the civilians caught in the middle. Much of the detail is drawn from in-depth conversations with the major Israeli commanders who planned and fought the battles. The author traveled every major route of advance taken by the Israeli army, and visited the sites of important battles, including Tyre, Sidon, the Beirut-Damascus highway, the Bekaa Valley, and Beirut. Materials, notes, and articles dealing with matters of national security are routinely submitted to Israeli censors, but Gabriel was able to circumvent this process. His is therefore the only analysis which considers the Israeli Defense Force's successes and failures in the war in Lebanon and the problems resulting from the major expansion of the IDF since the 1973 war..

In this book, Harris Lenowitz explores the fascinating history of Jewish messianic movements. Looking in detail at all of the Jewish messiahs about whom anything is known, he introduces each of these figures in turn, and offers extensive excerpts of the original texts that tell their stories. The messiahs whom we meet in these pages range from the inspiring to the tragic and bizarre. By examining the messianic idea in the tradition which gave birth to it, Lenowitz both sheds new light on this engrossing aspect of Jewish history and provides a firmer basis for understanding contemporary messianic groups..

The geography of Lower Galilee--of no small significance in the biblical record--has not received scholarly attention within the modern era.

Gal provides not only the raw data from the field survey, but also analyzes the geography, occupancy, and history of the region, including chapters on pottery, the settlement of the tribes, and the period of the monarchy..

Galilee - D. L. Tracey Preview:

Galilee is an American psychological thriller horror novel written by D.L. Tracey. It was first published by iUniverse publishers in December 2009, and then was re-published in 2021 by AuthorHouse publishers. The novel’s narrative is based on the relationship of its four main characters – the newly ordained young priest, Father Hickey, fresh out of seven very long years of seminary school. Young, overachieving, and ambitious priest is sent to a backwater parish--and to make matters even worse, the priest he will replace dies just before he gets there, throwing him into a strange situation with no guidance. The small parish The Church of Saint Peter at the edge of a fishing village was not what he hoped for as his first assignment. The young priest meets Michael McDonough, owner of The Crow’s Nest bar, while administering last rites to a fisherman on the docks of Galilee on his first day at the parish, and a friendship mentorship begins without the priest’s knowledge. A young waitress at the Crow’s Nest by the name of Janie befriends the young priest and allows him into her troubled past. The fourth person is Father Gilday, the priest who died a few days before the young priest’s arrival. Galilee is a story about the horror that can befall a fishing village when no one is piecing together the signs!.

Crossing Galilee - Marianne Sawicki Preview:

Recent books about Jesus and early Christianity can be divided into two kinds: those that examine the life and work of the historical Jesus prior to his death and those that reconstruct events between Jesus' death and the writings of the first Gospels. Sawicki's provocative book challenges the results of both kinds of research by using both archaeology and anthropology to situate Jesus clearly in his Galilean cultural context. Sawicki contests recent portraits of Jesus as a Mediterranean peasant, a Cynic sage, or the convener of a fellowship of equals. In addition, she calls into question readings of ancient Galilee that emphasize it as a society marked simply by economic stratification or by an "honor-shame" sociology. Rather, she discovers the Galilean Jesus' indigenous cultural idiom in its material structures for the negotiation of kinship, the management of labor, the distribution of commodities, and the construction of gender. Sawicki's book is the first to balance classical urban archaeology against the more recent archaeology of villages and of local and regional commerce. It frames current issues in Jesus research in terms that can guide both ongoing village excavations in Israel and responsible exegesis of the Gospels in church and academy. Marianne Sawicki is the author of Seeing the Lord: Resurrection and Early Christian Practices. For: Seminarians; graduate students; biblical archaeologists.

In this compelling story of love and loss, victory and defeat, loyalty and betrayal, award-winning poet and novelist Ibrahim Nasrallah, author of the Arabic Booker shortlisted Time of White Horses, once again brings Palestinian history alive with a set of characters and events both real and imagined to capture the essence of a rich and dramatic epoch in the turbulent annals of a land that has been fought over for millennia..

How Jesus Became God - Bart D. Ehrman Preview:

New York Times bestselling author and Bible expert Bart Ehrman reveals how Jesus’s divinity became dogma in the first few centuries of the early church. The claim at the heart of the Christian faith is that Jesus of Nazareth was, and is, God. But this is not what the original disciples believed during Jesus’s lifetime—and it is not what Jesus claimed about himself. How Jesus Became God tells the story of an idea that shaped Christianity, and of the evolution of a belief that looked very different in the fourth century than it did in the first. A master explainer of Christian history, texts, and traditions, Ehrman reveals how an apocalyptic prophet from the backwaters of rural Galilee crucified for crimes against the state came to be thought of as equal with the one God Almighty, Creator of all things. But how did he move from being a Jewish prophet to being God? In a book that took eight years to research and write, Ehrman sketches Jesus’s transformation from a human prophet to the Son of God exalted to divine status at his resurrection. Only when some of Jesus’s followers had visions of him after his death—alive again—did anyone come to think that he, the prophet from Galilee, had become God. And what they meant by that was not at all what people mean today. Written for secular historians of religion and believers alike, How Jesus Became God will engage anyone interested in the historical developments that led to the affirmation at the heart of Christianity: Jesus was, and is, God..

Jesus, a Jewish Galilean - Sean Freyne Preview:

In his latest book, Sean Freyne draws on his detailed knowledge of Galilean society in the Roman period, based on both literary and archaeological sources, to give a fresh and provocative reading of the Jesus-story within its Galilean setting. Jesus, a Jewish Galilean focuses on the religious as well as the social and political environment and examines the ways in which the Jewish religious experience had expressed itself in Galilee. It examines the ways in which the Jewish tradition in both the Pentateuch and the Prophets had constructed notions of an ideal Galilee. These provided the raw material for Jesus' own response to the issues of the day, from which he fashioned his own distinctive views of Israel's restoration and his own role in that project. Although Freyne is in touch with all recent scholarship about the historical Jesus, he brings his own distinctive take on the issues both with regard to Galilean society and Jesus' grounding in his own religious tradition. His Jesus is both Jewish and yet distinctive in his concerns and the ways in which he responds to the ecological, social and religious issues of his own time and place. Freyne seeks to retrieve the theological importance of Jesus' own message, something that has been lost sight of in the trend to present him primarily as a social reformer, while acknowledging the dangers of modernising Jesus..
