It is often thought that the French Reformer John Calvin (1509-1564) had a negative attitude towards the arts, particularly visual art. However, in Calvinism and the Arts: A Re-assessment, Dr. Joby argues that in Calvin's writings and in the development of the Reformed tradition more generally, it is possible to discern a more positive attitude than has hitherto been recognized. He makes a start by examining exactly what type of visual art Calvin rejected and what type he affirmed. He goes on to consider how Calvin's epistemology and eschatology can be used to argue for the placing of certain types of art, notably histories and landscape paintings, within Reformed churches and then devotes separate chapters to reflecting on how music, architecture and church decoration within the Reformed tradition provide further arguments for the use of these works of art. In the final section, he looks at specific histories and landscapes from the Dutch Golden Age and considers how the form and content of both of these types of art provide us with further ontological and epistemological arguments which inevitably lead to the conclusion that their continued exclusion from Reformed churches is no longer tenable.

A History of Early A.A.'s Spiritual Roots and Successes
Author: Dick B.
Publisher: Good Book Publishing Company
Dick B. is today regarded as the leading A.A. historian. He is a writer, Bible student, retired attorney, and active recovered member of the A.A. fellowship. He has brought to the history table: (1) His strong belief in the Creator, Christianity, and the Bible as the main source book for truth. (2) His long and fervent work with newcomers in helping them to overcome their alcoholism with the power of God. (3) His talents in writing and research that emerged from his work at the University of California where he received a Phi Beta Kappa key, his editorship of the Stanford Law Review, and his vigorous practice in writing and presenting legal briefs before many many courts. This mid-point treatise had been followed by and added up to 33 A.A. history titles so far. This book is foundational.
In seinem Buch »Der Ursprung des Christentums« entwickelt der marxistische Theoretiker und Historiker Karl Kautsky (1854-1938) ein detailreiches Bild von Staat und Gesellschaft des frühen römischen Kaiserreichs, das mit der Gründungszeit des Christentums zusammenfällt. Großen Wert legt Kautsky dabei auf die Darstellung der religiösen und vor allem wirtschaftlichen Situation der unteren Gesellschaftsschichten, die sich durch die christliche Heilsbotschaft besonders angesprochen fühlten. Nachdruck der 1908 in Stuttgart erschienenen Originalausgabe.
