            This new book by Dr Ian Guthridge, historian and former Jesuit priest, presents a fresh, frank and no-holds-barred debate about Religion. Is it Faith, or Fact, or Fantasy? Indeed, do we need Religion any more - or is it simply past its use-by date, and something we would be well ...rid of. Timely and relevant, these questions often underpin headlines in the Media. For example, increasing revelations of child abuse by clerics, with Church authorities sweeping these under the carpet; controversies over Gay Maniage, the ordination of women priests, and the use of taxpayer money to fund religious schools; conflicts between Religion and Science over Creation and Evolution; the rival claims of Jews and Muslims to the Holy Land and, here at home, growing concerns about increasing numbers of Muslim migrants from countries hostile to the West; questions about whether Islam is an essentially peaceful religion or a peaceful religion hi-jacked by extremists ; and the challenge presented by Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchens that God is a Delusion and Religion has been a source of endless divisions and conflicts, and should therefore be got rid of altogether; so has Religion really passed its use-by date - or are we in danger of throwing out the baby with the bath-water? In this book, Guthridge approaches Religion from an unusually wide perspective. For having been a believer throughout the first half of his life - with a Doctorate in Theology from the Gregorian University in Rome - he knows what Religion looks like and feels like from the inside; but, having abandoned Established Christianity throughout the second half of his life, he knows what Religion looks like and feels like from the outside. And, given this double perspective from both sides of the equation, the book launches a strong and uninhibited presentation of both the Case for the Prosecution of Religion, and the Case for its Defence - examining each of these on the basis of evidence, rather than on wil

            With the unexpected death of Russian President Aleksandr Luganov, and Iran's efforts to acquire fully operational nuclear warheads successfully thwarted, American President Andrew Clarke decides the moment has come to unveil his comprehensive proposal to achieve peace between Isr...ael and the Palestinians. However, when a series of senior American officials involved in the peace process are assassinated, Clarke orders Marcus Ryker and a team of CIA operatives to hunt down those responsible and bring the killing spree to an end. What Ryker uncovers is a chilling plot to kill the American president himself, but at first, it's unclear who is the driving force behind the plot. Is it the Russians, seeking payback for the assassination of Luganov? Is it the Iranians, in retaliation for the American operation to keep Tehran from acquiring nukes? Or is it another conspirator altogether, someone plotting to strike a blow against American hegemony in the Middle East and seize the leadership of the entire Sunni Muslim world? By the time Ryker and his team fully understand the plot and who's behind it, they find they have less than 96 hours to disrupt a terrible evil that has been set in motion.

            In the summer of 1942, twenty-two year-old Franci Rabinek Epstein arrived at Terezin, a concentration camp and ghetto forty miles north of her home in Prague. It would be the beginning of her six-year journey through several camps during the Second World War, from Terezin to Ausc...hwitz-Birkenau, to forced labor in Hamburg and finally Bergen-Belsen. After the camp's liberation by the British in April 1945, she returned to Prague, a survivor. Franci was known in her group as the Prague seamstress. Hers is a story of ingenuity and endurance- she pretended to be an electrican to escape the Auschwitz selection, secretly fighting for the survival of her fellow inmates. Franci also gives voice to the darker side of women in war - rape and prostitiution - offering an insight into the resilience of people in an unknowable situation.

            Living Religion, fifth edition, explores the expression and practice of the world's various belief systems that have arisen as people have sought answers to the ultimate questions of human existence. Religion, however one defines it, is complex. It can be a cohesive force in soci...ety and, at the same time, a source of division. But the investigation of these different aspects is exciting. This new edition is the complete solution for New South Wales Studies of Religion. It retains all the features that has made it a leading title for SOR I and II but has been updated to include recent statistical information and images, recent developments in the major traditions and a fully revised chapter on Religion and Peace. It also features a suite of teacher and student resources to support extension learning, preparation for HSC exams and teacher planning. Living Religion maintains the authors' commitment to exploring the lived expressions of religion in Australia and the need to recognise the place and significance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders beliefs and spiritualities. As a result, this book incorporates current statistical information, images and photographs, weblinks and recent developments in the major traditions as they respond to the changing nature of society in Australia and beyond. *Complimentary access to NelsonNet is available to teachers who use the accompanying student book as a core resource in their classroom. Contact your education consultant for access codes and conditions.
