Across the United States, Jews come together every week to sing and pray in a wide variety of worship communities. Through this music, made by and for ordinary folk, these worshippers define and re-define their relationship to the continuity of Jewish tradition and the realities of American life. Combining oral history with an analysis of recordings, The Lord's Song in a Strange Land examines this tradition incontemporary Jewish worship and explores the diverse links between the music and both spiritual and cultural identities. Alive with detail, the book focuses on metropolitan Boston and covers the full range of Jewish communities there, from Hasidim to Jewish college students in a transdenominational setting. It documents a remarkably fluid musical tradition, where melodies are often shared, where sources can be as diverse as Sufi chant, Christmas carols, rock and roll, and Israeli popular music, and where the meaning of a song can change from one block to the next.

Taking The Long View, this book represents the life and witness of Rev. Dr. Joseph E. Lowery. In the annals of the church, there are few leaders who are greater or who have spoken with a clearer voice. Born during the height of the Jim Crow era in Huntsville, Alabama, Dr. Lowery has been singing the Lord's song in a strange land his whole life. Life, he says, is a strange land, not as orderly as we might like, but even so we must do God's will, even in and under difficult circumstances.

There his capture, torture, conversion, and eventual ministry among the prisoners end in an unexpected amnesty by the King.

Through the help of a Palestinian, he begins work in the palace of a Prince. Later, in a Baptist hospital in the mountains of Ajlun, he ministers to Palestinian commandoes, telling them of his new-found faith. Fareeds long-sought passport is issued through intervention of the Jordanian Queen. Thus begins his adventure in America as an eigth-grade dropout entering college.

When Jackie Mittoo and Leroy Sibbles migrated from Jamaica to Toronto in the early 1970s, the musicians brought reggae with them, sparking the flames of one of Canada’s most vibrant music scenes. Professional reggae musician and scholar Jason Wilson tells the story of how reggae brought black and white youth together, opening up a cultural dialogue between Jamaican migrants and Canadians along the city’s ethnic frontlines. This underground subculture rebelled against the status quo, broke through the bonds of race, eased the acculturation process, and made bands such as Messenjah and the Sattalites household names for a brief but important time.

The latest scholarship on the role of hymns in American evangelicalism. Music and song are important parts of worship, and hymns have long played a central role in Protestant cultural history. This book explores the ways in which Protestants have used and continue to use hymns to clarify their identity and define their relationship with America and to Christianity. Representing seven groups--Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Mennonites, Holiness, Hispanics, and Evangelicals--the nine essays reveal how hymns have helped immigrants to establish new identities, contributed to the body of worship resources, and sustained ethnic identity. Individual essays address the music of the Old-Fashioned Revival Hour, America's longest running and most successful independent radio program; singing among Swedish evangelicals in America; the German hymn tradition as transformed by Mennonite immigrants; the ways hymnody reinforces themes of the Wesleyan holiness movement; the history of Mercer's Cluster (1810), a southern hymnal that gave voice to slaves, women, and native Americans; and the Presbyterian hymnal tradition in Canada formed by Scottish immigrants. "This anthology is most original in reaching beyond . . . familiar lines of analysis to approach hymnody from various oblique angles rooted in religious history, sociology, theology, and evangelical studies." --Mel Piehl, Dean, Christ College, and Professor of Humanities and History, Valparaiso University Edith L. Blumhofer is Director of the Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals, Professor of History at Wheaton College, and author of Aimee Semple McPherson: Everybody's Sister. Mark A. Noll is McManis Chair of Christian Thought at Wheaton College. Stephen Marini is Elisabeth Luce Moore Professor of Christian Studies at Wellesley College.

The whole world is passing through a huge paradigm shift the likes of which have not been seen for generations. What is the Holy Spirit saying to the Church in Britain and to the Methodist Church in particular? The author contends that Britain is a modern Babylon where mammon reigns. The Church has unconsciously absorbed the values of Babylon into its structure and strategies with the result that is has ceased to be prophetic. It has become a public utility offering cheap grace to a consumer public looking for peace and security in troubled times. Only after a radical repentance , all levels of its life, can the Church recover its integrity and grow.

Singing the Lord's Song in a Strange Land? explores the experiences and insights of three congregations living on a large deprived housing estate in Ely, Cardiff, UK where the author is a minister. From their experiences of decline and loss, discovery and hope the author has developed a thesis rooted in the Old Testament paradigm of exile and offers a challenging critique of the Church's self-centred nature and formulates the beginnings of a missiology in and for a «post-Church» society. A missiology that questions if the Church truly has a fixed and pre-eminent role in the mission of God.
