Russian Society and the Orthodox Church: Religion in Russia after Communism

Russian Society and the Orthodox Church: Religion in Russia after Communism (BASEES/Routledge Series on Russian and East European Studies) by Zoe Knox
English | Nov. 4, 2004 | ISBN: 0415320534 | 270 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Russian Society and the Orthodox Church examines the Russian Orthodox Church's social and political role and its relationship to civil society in post-Communist Russia. It shows how Orthodox prelates, clergy and laity have shaped Russians' attitudes towards religious and ideological pluralism, which in turn have influenced the ways in which Russians understand civil society, including those of its features - pluralism and freedom of conscience - that are essential for a functioning democracy.

Saving Souls, Serving Society: Understanding the Faith Factor in Church-Based Social Ministry

Saving Souls, Serving Society: Understanding the Faith Factor in Church-Based Social Ministry
English | Oxford University Press, USA | 2005-10-06 | ISBN-10 : 0195161556 | 356 pages | PDF | 885KB

Product Description:
Recent years have seen unprecedented attention to faith-based institutions as agents of social change, spurred in part by cuts in public funding for social services and accompanied by controversy about the separation of church and state. The debate over faith-based initiatives has highlighted a small but growing segment of churches committed to both saving souls and serving society. What distinguishes faith-based from secular activism? How do religious organizations express their religious identity in the context of social services? How do faith-based service providers interpret the connection between spiritual methodologies and socioeconomic outcomes? How does faith motivate and give meaning to social ministry? Drawing on case studies of fifteen Philadelphia-area Protestant churches with active outreach, Saving Souls, Serving Society seeks to answer these and other pressing questions surrounding the religious dynamics of social ministry. While church-based programs often look similar to secular ones in terms of goods or services rendered, they may show significant differences in terms of motivations, desired outcomes, and interpretations of meaning. Church-based programs also differ from one another in terms of how they relate evangelism to their social outreach agenda. Heidi Rolland Unruh and Ronald J. Sider explore how churches navigate the tension between their spiritual mission and the constraints on evangelism in the context of social services. The authors examine the potential contribution of religious dynamics to social outcomes as well as the relationship between mission orientations and social capital. Unruh and Sider introduce a new vocabulary for describing the religious components and spiritual meanings embedded in social action, and provide a typology of faith-based organizations and programs. Their analysis yields a framework for Protestant mission orientations that makes room for the diverse ways that churches interrelate spiritual witness and social compassion. Based on their observations, the authors offer a constructive approach to church-state partnerships and provide a far more objective understanding of faith-based social services than previously available.

Predatory Priests, Silenced Victims: The Sexual Abuse Crisis and the Catholic Church

Predatory Priests, Silenced Victims: The Sexual Abuse Crisis and the Catholic Church by Mary Gail Frawley-O'Dea
English | May 30, 2007 | ISBN: 0881634247 | 279 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

The sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church captured headlines and mobilized public outrage in January 2002. But much of the commentary that immediately followed was reductionistic, focusing on single "causes" of clerical abuse such as mandatory celibacy, homosexuality, sexual repressiveness or sexual permissiveness, anti-Catholicism, and a decadent secular culture.
