By Rufus Spain, Samuel S. Hill
First released in 1967, Rufus Spain’s thorough research into Southern Baptist attitudes set the level for study on faith within the American South. In At Ease in Zion, Spain questions the titular “ease” with society that Southern Baptists looked as if it would continue following the Civil battle. His research of denominational newspapers, in addition to studies from the Southern Baptist conference and nation conventions, paint a compelling photograph of the themes’ complacency with their social lifestyles, at the same time they criticized own and leisure ethics.
whereas the South confronted major social, fiscal, and political adjustments after the Civil battle, faith remained the first ethical effect. because the Southern Baptist denomination made up an important majority of the inhabitants at the moment, its leaders and attitudes had a transparent and indisputable impression on social norms. Rufus Spain was once one of many first writers to actively display the connection among Southern faith and Southern society, and his paintings screens meticulous recognition to the ways that we're stricken by complacency. He asserts that Southern Baptists considered the yankee South as a model of God’s perfect society; any matters they wanted to handle have been attributable to members (such as those that didn't comply with societal norms) or exterior attitudes (such as these in differing religions or regions).
At Ease in Zion is a severe a part of the scholarly dialogue on faith in society. Spain’s study deals a daring research of the yankee South and its electorate in the course of some of the most tumultuous occasions in its background whereas supplying a foundation for arguments on “social Christianity” and its ever-shifting position within the world.

The evolution of the Arab empire is likely one of the ideal narratives of historical background, a narrative dazzlingly wealthy in drama, personality, and success. during this intriguing and sweeping history-the 3rd in his trilogy of books at the old world-Tom Holland describes how the Arabs emerged to carve out a stupefyingly tremendous dominion in a question of a long time, overcoming probably insuperable odds to create an imperial civilization.
Die religiöse Vielfalt Osteuropas übertrifft die des Westens bei weitem. Das Neben- und Miteinander von Schamanen, Muslimen, Christen und Juden prägte schon das Mittelalter. Im 17. Jahrhundert kamen Buddhisten hinzu.
An der Grenze zwischen Ost- und Westkirche entstanden zudem neue Glaubensrichtungen: Die Unierte Kirche hielt an der byzantinischen Liturgie fest, erkannte aber den Papst an. Und der Chassidismus widmete sich vor allem den ekstatischen und magischen Aspekten der jüdischen culture. Sie alle versuchte der sowjetische Atheismus zu beseitigen, bis er am – auch durch die faith getragenen – Widerstand Polens zerbrach.

47 Two weeks later the same editor, in obvious dejection, commented: Our friends all know, we presume, by this time, how the Congressional Commission has fixed up matters relative to the Presidential question. We have neither the time nor heart to comment upon it. Let us trust God and fear not what man can do unto US. 48 The people of South Carolina in 1877 were less concerned with the presidential election than with their own state elections. To all local observers, it was apparent that Wade Hampton and a Democratic slate had been elected by an overwhelming majority; yet the Republicans, with the aid of federal troops, refused to surrender the state house.
