Are you interested in preserving the constitutional principle of church-state separation? Do you think a secular system is the only way to ensure freedom of religion and conscience for all? Do you want creationism out of classrooms, religious dogma out of health care, sectarian prayers out of government meetings, and taxpayer funding out of faith-based initiatives and programs that promote religious indoctrination? Think there s not much you can do about it? If so, as secular writer and activist Dan Arel demonstrates in word and deed, think again. Drawing on his experience fighting to keep $18 million in taxpayer money out of the construction of the Noah s Ark theme park in Kentucky, Arel makes clear that the only way to stop the Religious Right s assault on the wall separating church and state is for each of us to be active and vocal. He offers pragmatic lessons and guidance for protecting secularism, whether by raising awareness on social media, protesting in the public square, or knocking on doors in government corridors. Sharing not only his story but also the stories of other secular activists, he offers an inspirational and forceful call to action. For those who are waiting for others to stand up against antisecular forces, he reminds that each of us can make an individual difference and that ultimately we must be the wall separating church and state."

Following the Arab Spring, the Muslim Brotherhood achieved a level of influence previously unimaginable. Yet the implications of the Brotherhood's rise and dramatic fall for the future of democratic governance, peace, and stability in the region are disputed and remain open to debate. Drawing on more than one hundred in-depth interviews as well as Arabic-language sources never before accessed by Western researchers, Carrie Rosefsky Wickham traces the evolution of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt from its founding in 1928 to the fall of Hosni Mubarak and the watershed elections of 2011-2012. Highlighting elements of movement continuity and change, Wickham demonstrates that shifts in Islamist worldviews, goals, and strategies are not the result of a single strand of cause and effect, and provides a systematic, fine-grained account of Islamist group evolution in Egypt and the wider Arab world. In a new afterword, Wickham discusses what has happened in Egypt since Muhammad Morsi was ousted and the Muslim Brotherhood fell from power.

Global struggles over women's roles, rights, and dress increasingly cast the secular and the religious in tense if not violent opposition. When advocates for equality speak in terms of rights and modern progress, or reactionaries ground their authority in religious and scriptural appeals, both tend to presume women's emancipation is ineluctably tied to secularization. Religion, the Secular, and the Politics of Sexual Difference upsets this certainty by drawing on diverse voices and traditions in studies that historicize, question, and test the implicit links between secularism and expanded freedoms for women. Rather than position secularism as the answer to conflicts over gender and sexuality, this volume shows both religion and the secular collaborate in creating the conditions that generate them.

How can Christians today truly live like Jesus and be more faithful disciples? Ronald J. Sider takes a fervent look at these and other foundational questions, many of which have been the passion of his life. As founder and president of Evangelicals for Social Action, Sider for more than three decades has worked toward a meeting of the minds between two "branches" of the church vine. In the essays in this book, Sider calls on those in the evangelical stream to become more aware and concerned about poverty, injustice, and peacemaking, while he urges socially active Christians to embrace the great commission and to be more committed to Christ than to political agendas. In I Am Not a Social Activist Sider urges all Christians to "make the Incarnate One the center of all we think and do." "'I'm not a social activist, ' claims Ron Sider in his latest book, a collection of his essays just out from Herald Press.

Ron Sider is one of those clear-minded, balanced evangelicals who combines evangelistic passion and social concern with theological reflection and pas-toral pragmatism. This adds up to a voice worth listening to, and I Am Not a Social Activist, as an introduction to Sider's work, may leave you wanting to pursue the issues further by reading another of Sider's more detailed volumes." --Lee Beach McMaster Divinity College, McMaster Journal of Theology and Ministry
