Essential Approaches to Christian Religious Education: Learning and Teaching in Uganda (2018)

Christopher Byaruhanga

ISBN 978-2-88931-235-1

Teaching Christian religious education at the lower secondary school level is complex. It involves the interweaving of content knowledge, pedagogical skills, a knowledge and appreciation of the multifaceted nature of students and finally the evaluation skills that help the teacher to arrive at the conclusion that the intended key learning outcomes have been achieved. Personal characteristics too are integral in the overall portrait of a professional Christian religious education teacher, especially for those people who believe that today there is the paradigm shift between providing instruction and producing learning between imparting knowledge and facilitating learning. An examination of the available literature reveals that many books have been written about how religion should be taught in schools. This book is not about any particular religion; it addresses the deficiency of materials related directly to the essential approaches that should be employed when teaching Christian religious education at the lower secondary school level in Uganda.

John of Damascus and Heresy. A Basis for Understanding Modern Heresy (2017)

Timothee B. Mushagalusa
ISBN 978-2-88931-205-4

This study investigates the understanding of heresy and the heretic according to Saint John of Damascus. For him, a heretic was any Christian who, by wilful choice, departs from the one orthodox tradition by adopting a personal opinion on the common faith which he intends to institute as sole truth. Our research is divided into two parts and aims to apply John of Damascus' understanding of the recurring identity of the Christian heretic and his behaviour. By using historical-theological, interdisciplinary and diachronical approaches, the author demonstrates through two case studies, namely, the Dutch Reformed Churches and Apartheid, and Kimbanguism, that this Church Father, who is the ‘seal of the patristic era,' remains a relevant authority for our comprehension of heresy and the heretic.

Struggles for Women-Inclusive Leadership in Toraja Church in Indonesia and the Evangelical Church of Vietnam (2017)

Le Ngoc Bich Ly
ISBN 978-2-88931-210-8

Traditionally, women in Vietnam have been seen as the sole nurturer and care-taker of the family. Similarly, recent reports show that both men and women in Vietnam expect women to behave in a socially constrained way. Women's struggle for leadership in religious organizations in Southeast Asia has been particularly characterized with various levels of accomplishment. This study takes the Toraja Church in Indonesia and the Evangelical Church of Vietnam as two cross-cultural case studies. As the main causes of change in the churches, the author discusses (1) the degree of destabilizing forces from external context and institutional structure; (2) the degree of support and identification with the struggle by male leaders; and (3) the dominant existence of women's feminist projects and their success in turning their feminist projects into collective effort.

ISBN 978-2-88931-149-1

Women's Status and Gender Relations in Post-Genocide Rwanda (2017)

Josephine Mukabera
ISBN 978-2-88931-193-4

After the 1994 genocide against Tutsi in Rwanda, the Government introduced gender equality programs in its development priorities to reduce gender-based inequalities and poverty. Currently, Rwanda tops the list as the country with the highest proportion of women in parliament worldwide, with nearly 64 percent of seats held by women. However, some people remain biased against the concept of women in position of power. Institutional gender sensitive norms, equally benefiting women and men, and correcting gender biased practices in leadership opportunities and rights provision are needed. This work assesses changes related to women's status and gender relations at the local level of Rwanda, exploring the responsibilities allocated to women in the local government, religious institutions and the family decisions.

Ética y economía: la relación dañada (2017)

Cristina Calvo / Humberto Shikiya / Deivit Montealegre (Eds.)
ISBN 978-2-88931-199-6

Aportes camino al G-20 2018 en el marco de la agenda 2030. "Dialogo de alto nivel sobre arquitectura financiera internacional: ética y economía". Ecoeconomía y economía del bien común global, desigualdades estructurales y protección del trabajo, financiamiento del crimen y corrupción pública y privada, responsabilidad social empresaria y financiamiento para el desarrollo de países y personas. Cada uno de estos puntos tiene una fuerte incidencia en la vida de las naciones y de las personas. La ética suele ser la gran ausente en muchas de las actividades que se desarrollan en el mundo y también en nuestras propias políticas públicas. Cualquier análisis que se haga sobre el sistema financiero internacional y su preponderancia sobre los sectores productivos, sobre la implementación de modelos económicos alejados de los reales intereses de sus destinatarios, como también las políticas que no alcanzan a cubrir necesidades y pobreza por falta de recursos, pone en evidencia la ausencia de elementos de justicia, de ética, que permitan lograr los recursos necesarios para encontrar las soluciones equitativas indispensables. Este debate multidisciplinario quiere ser un aporte a este proceso.

Reichtum der Welt - für Alle (2017)

Florian Josef Hoffmann
ISBN 978-2-88931-188-0

Der Titel des Buches verspricht "Reichtum für Alle". Natürlich kann das nicht Superluxus für alle sein. Nein, das wäre unendliche Verschwendung, die in niemandes Interesse sein kann. Gemeint ist etwas Realistisches, nämlich eine halbwegs gerechte Teilhabe aller Menschen am unendlichen und unbeschreiblichen Reichtum dieser unserer gottgegebenen Welt. Alle, wirklich alle, können als Menschen in die Lage versetzt werden, ein selbstbestimmtes, menschenwürdiges Leben zu führen, können "durch Wohlstand zur Freiheit" gelangen. Die Grundvorstellung ist simpel: je mehr Menschen es gibt, umso mehr sind in der Lage, sich sinnvoll in ein sinnvolles Ganzes einzubringen. Sonnenenergie, Technologie und motivierte menschliche Arbeitskraft stehen in gigantischem Ausmaß zur Verfügung.

Search for Non-Violent and People-Centric Development (2017)

John M. Itty
ISBN 978-2-88931-185-9

Market-centric development is not only unjust, inequitable, unsustainable, but also violent. The end of development-aggressive consumption, and the means—aggressive production, trade and accumulation—make development anti-people. The more marketable wealth is produced, the more ill-fare is brought instead of welfare. Financialisation of the economy and neglect of the ecology bring financial and ecological crises. Neglect of non-marketable wealth, like love, caring, sharing, concern for others and social/cultural capital, are the reasons for this malady. Only people-centric development that fosters production of non-marketable wealth along with marketable wealth can promote welfare. In this book, the author, highlights the importance for reducing production of wealth with negative utility, the need to foster spirituality of development, and suggests a few non-market programmes to promote people-centric development.
