📒Eight Women Philosophers ✍ Jane Duran
📝Eight Women Philosophers Book Synopsis : Spanning over nine hundred years, Eight Women Philosophers is the first singly-authored work to trace the themes of standard philosophical theorizing and feminist thought across women philosophers in the Western tradition. Jane Duran has crafted a comprehensive overview of eight women philosophers--Hildegard of Bingen, Anne Conway, Mary Astell, Mary Wollstonecraft, Harriet Taylor Mill, Edith Stein, Simone Weil, and Simone de Beauvoir--that underscores the profound and continuing significance of these thinkers for contemporary scholars. Duran devotes one chapter to each philosopher and provides a sustained critical analysis of her work, utilizing aspects of Continental theory, poststructuralist theory, and literary theory. She situates each philosopher within her respective era and in relation to her intellectual contemporaries, and specifically addresses the contributions each has made to major areas such as metaphysics/epistemology, theory of value, and feminist theory. She affirms the viability and importance of recovering these women's overlooked work and provides a powerful answer to the question of why the rubric "women philosophers" remains so valuable.

📒Catholic Theology Of Marriage In The Era Of Hiv And Aids ✍ Emily Reimer-Barry
📝Catholic Theology of Marriage in the Era of HIV and AIDS Book Synopsis : Marriage for Life begins by listening to the lived experiences of Catholic, married, HIV-positive women, in order to better understand their struggles. The eight women interviewed in Chicago, Illinois, USA, shared their stories of marriage, of family life, of church involvement, and of living with HIV. Their candid reflections offer a fresh and grounded perspective on the challenges of living with HIV in a US context. After listening to and learning from these women’s experiences, Reimer-Barry constructs a theology of Christian marriage that is life-giving in a world with AIDS. While Catholic teachings have developed and now affirm the equal dignity of women and men, troubling legacies of women’s subordination remain embedded in liturgical practices and theological texts. Arguing that self-care is an indispensable component of a healthy marriage, Reimer-Barry constructs a life-affirming theology of marriage that is sensitive to the struggles of her collaborators. She argues that marriage for life must promote the full flourishing of both partners, respect wives as equal partners with their husbands, and offer a coherent and empowering sexual ethic. Building on the wisdom of her collaborators’ lived experiences, Reimer-Barry examines the need for a more adequate Catholic response to HIV and AIDS, arguing that church communities should promote comprehensive sexual education, affirm both abstinence and condom use for HIV prevention, and actively work to reduce stigmatizing behaviors within church communities. She also unpacks the implications of marriage for life for Catholic liturgical practice, marriage preparation programs, sexual education programs, and family ministries. Modeling her method on what Pope Francis calls the “art of accompaniment,” Reimer-Barry argues that Catholic theology of marriage must be renewed and updated so that all can plainly understand that marriage is for life.
📒Women Saints Lives In Old English Prose ✍ Leslie A. Donovan
📝Women Saints Lives in Old English Prose Book Synopsis : Devout, virtuous and independent, the heroines of Old English saints' lives (one of the most popular literary genres of the middle ages) provided exemplars of personal and public inspiration for medieval Christians. The eight lives translated here are the earliest known vernacular accounts of the biographies of Æthelthryth, Agatha, Agnes, Cecilia, Eugenia, Euphrosyne, Lucy, and Mary of Egypt. They depict women escaping unwanted marriages, communicating with male relatives, acquiring an education, living autonomously as hermits, and achieving positions of leadership; such lives document not only the importance of spiritual faith to early Christian women, but also testify to how these women (and their audience) employed faith as a tool for empowerment. Each life is preceded by a brief description of the saint's cult from its early Christian origins to its presence in Anglo-Saxon culture. The translation is accompanied by an introduction establishing the general background for the genre, the conventions of women saints' lives, and women's religious culture in Anglo-Saxon England; and an interpretive essay exploring the relationships between explicit presentations of the female body and the strength of spiritual authority as exhibited in these texts completes the volume. LESLIE A. DONOVAN is Associate Professor at the University of New Mexico.
📒Scarlet Threads ✍ Perry Stone
📝Scarlet Threads Book Synopsis : The undeniable power of praying women In the Bible God cannot resist the prayer of a godly woman, and a godly woman cannot resist communicating with God. Women's prayers have tremendous power to touch the heart of God, move the hand of God, change the mind of God, and attract the favor of God. Perry Stone takes you on a tour of the prayer life of several women of the Bible to show you how to effectively pray for your family. Focusing on the story of Rahab, whose covenant with God was symbolized by a scarlet thread hanging from her window, he provides specific, practical prayers and examples that will help you access your spiritual authority to keep your family safe. You will discover: · Four spiritual tools every mother can use · Five prayers for when your family is in trouble · How to prepare your children for their destinies · How to pray your lost sons and daughters back home · How to break Satan’s stronghold over your bloodline, and more! Your scarlet thread is your faith that holds on to a promise when the town is shaking and walls are falling all around you. Your scarlet thread is your prayer that will protect your family from outside battles. Your scarlet thread is what you tie around your loved ones, holding the rope, sticking to your prayers and confessions, until you can lift them from the pits of despair and destruction. From one act of faith—a scarlet thread in a window—a family legacy was forged. It is time to do the same with yours.

📒 ✍ Джон Беньян
📝 Book Synopsis : «Когда я странствовал по дикой пустыне этого мира, я наткнулся на одно место, где находился вертеп. Там я лёг отдохнуть и вскоре заснул. И вот приснился мне сон:Вижу человека, одетого в грязные рубища, который стоял неподвижно на дороге, спиной к своему жилищу. В руках его была книга, а на спине тяжелое бремя. Гляжу он открывает книгу и читает, но почему-то вдруг залился слезами и задрожал. Потом, как бы не в силах превозмочь тревожного чувства, он воскликнул отчаянным голосом: «Что мне делать?”..»
📒Christian Sisterhood Race Relations And The Ywca 1906 46 ✍ Nancy Marie Robertson
📝Christian Sisterhood Race Relations and the YWCA 1906 46 Book Synopsis : As the major national biracial women's organization, the Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA) provided a unique venue for women to respond to American race relations during the first half of the twentieth century. In Christian Sisterhood, Race Relations, and the YWCA, 1906-46, Nancy Marie Robertson shows how women of both races employed different understandings of "Christian sisterhood" in their responses. Although the YWCA was segregated at the local level, African American women were able to effectively challenge white women over YWCA racial policies and practices. Robertson argues that from 1906 through 1946, many white women in the association went from seeing segregation as compatible with Christianity and democracy to regarding it as a contradiction of those values. These struggles laid the groundwork for the subsequent civil rights movement. Her analysis relies not only on a large body of records documenting YWCA women at the national and local levels, but also on autobiographical accounts and personal papers from women associated with the YWCA, including Dorothy Height, Lugenia Burns Hope, Alice Dunbar-Nelson, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, and Lillian Smith. A volume in the series Women in American History, edited by Anne Firor Scott, Susan Armitage, Susan K. Cahn, and Deborah Gray White
📒Women In The Medieval English Countryside ✍ Judith M. Bennett
📝Women in the Medieval English Countryside Book Synopsis : Unlike most histories of European women, which have typically focused on the 19th and 20th century elite, this study reconstructs the public lives of peasant women and men during the six decades before the Black Death of 1348-49. Drawing on the extensive records of the forest manor of Brigstock, Judith Bennett challenges the myth of a "golden age" of equality for medieval men and women. Instead, she ably shows that women faced profound political, legal, economic, and social disadvantages in their dealings with men. These disadvantages stemmed more from women's household status as dependents of their husbands than from any notion of female inferiority; consequently, adolescents and widows participated much more actively than wives in the public life of Brigstock. Women in the Medieval English Countryside demonstrates not only how enduring the subordination of women has been throughout English history, but also how firmly that subordination has been rooted in the conjugal household.
📒 ✍ Конфуций
📝 Book Synopsis : Во всей истории мировой философии найдется не много мыслителей, которых можно было бы поставить рядом с Конфуцием (VI-V вв. до н. э.). Легендарный великий Учитель, непререкаемый авторитет для китайской философской традиции, он давно уже перешагнул ее совсем не тесные рамки. Наследие Конфуция, если отбросить массу сомнительных и откровенно приписываемых ему текстов, выглядит очень лаконично. Книга изречений «Луньюй», записанных учениками Конфуция, относится к числу наиболее бесспорных книг знаменитого философа.До недавнего времени о Конфуции больше слышали, чем читали, поэтому в нашем издании «Луньюй» дополнен трудами учеников Конфуция, а также обширными комментариями и биографическими пояснениями, накопившимися за последние две тысячи лет.
