Since the early 1990s, interest in psychotherapy for religious clients has increased. The number of books,
chapters, and journal articles that have included the topics psychotherapy and religion, religious belief,
religiosity, or religious membership in their titles and abstracts has gone from 86 published in the 1950s and
84 published in the 1960s, to 99 published in the 1970s, 145 published in the 1980s, and 330 published in the
cores of constitutions drawn up since the end of World
War II have proclaimed religious freedom as one of the
most fundamental rights known to humanity. Simi-
larly, international covenants of human rights have
exalted the right to religious liberty as a privilege that is so
foundational and precious that it should be guaranteed by in-

The purpose of this book is to deal with Browning, not simply as a poet, but rather as the exponent of a
system of ideas on moral and religious subjects, which may fairly be called a philosophy. I am conscious that
it is a wrong to a poet to neglect, or even to subordinate, the artistic aspect of his work. At least, it would be a
wrong, if our final judgment on his poetry were to be determined on such a method. But there is a place for
everything; and, even in the case of a great poet, there is sometimes an advantage in...

An intact two-parent family and regular church attendance are each
associated with fewer problem behaviors, more positive social development, and
fewer parental concerns about the child’s learning and achievement. Taken
together, the two home-environment factors have an additive relationship with
child well-being. That is, children who live in an intact family and attend religious
services regularly generally come out best on child development measures, while
children who do neither come out worst.
After the establishment of Major Studholme’s garrison at Fort Howe, in the fall of 1777, the settlers on the river found adequate protection. The Indians occasionally assumed a hostile attitude it is true, especially when they were stirred up by Allan’s emissaries from Machias, but they were rather overawed by the proximity of the fort and were for the most part peacefully disposed. The privateers continued their depredations on the coast, but kept clear of Fort Howe. The condition of the settlers on the river had gradually improved and they were now able to live within themselves.
Our knowledge of affairs on the River Saint John down to the period of English occupation is largely derived from the correspondence of the Jesuit missionaries, the last of whom was Charles Germain. After his retirement the Acadians and Indians remained for several years without any spiritual guide, a circumstance that did not please them and was also a matter of concern to the Governor of Nova Scotia, who in December, 1764, informed the Secretary of State that a promise had been made the Indians of the River St. John to send them a priest, which the Lords of...
While the South African government is tackling poverty amongst its citizenry as a national priority and has developed various pro-poor initiatives, how generously do ordinary South Africans give of their own time and money to assist with the alleviation of poverty, and why?Who in the corporate sector is giving, how much, to what causes, and what do they hope to achieve as a result? How effective are religious institutions in mobilising and distributing individual and public resources? What do foreign donors provide and what is the effect of their contributions?For the first time in South Af...
The following monograph is the outgrowth of three earlier and shorter essays. The first, "Church and State in
Connecticut to 1818," was presented to Yale University as a doctor's thesis. The second, a briefer and more popularly written article, won the Straus prize offered in 1896 through Brown University by the Hon. Oscar S.
Straus. The third, a paper containing additional matter, was so far approved by the American Historical
Association as to receive honorable mention in the Justin Winsor prize competition of 1901....
Consider the word shit. Simply being asked to do this may have shocked you. Even if it
did not, most speakers of British English would agree that this is a word to be used with
caution. Because of prevailing attitudes amongst speakers of the English language, using
the word may lead any hearer to make a number of inferences about you. They may infer
something about your emotional state, your social class or your religious beliefs, for
example. They may even infer something about your educational achievements. All of
these inferences flow from a fairly innocuous four-letter word....
Dreaming has fascinated humankind since the dawn of
recorded history. As dreaming is so vivid, so complex,
and so emotional , it has inspired religious movements ,
artistic representations, and introspective scientific theories. All
of these pre-modern expressions have been based on the idea
that dreams contain messages that cannot be delivered in any
Thus, i t was thought by the early Judaeo-Christians that God

The ﬁrst high-level programming languages were designed during the 1950s. Ever
since then, programming languages have been a fascinating and productive area
of study. Programmers endlessly debate the relative merits of their favorite pro-
gramming languages, sometimes with almost religious zeal. On a more academic
level, computer scientists search for ways to design programming languages that
combine expressive power with simplicity and efﬁciency.
Law concerns the relations of individuals with one
another as such relations affect the social and economic
order. It is both the product of civilization
and the means by which civilization is maintained. As such,
law reflects the social, economic, political, religious, and
moral philosophy of society. The laws of the United States
influence the lives of every U.S. citizen. At the same time,
the laws of each State influence the lives of its citizens and
the lives of many noncitizens as well.
The average American consumes an estimated
50 tons of food in a lifetime. This staggering
amount of food represents the sum of daily
choices each of us makes regarding the type,
quality, and quantity of foods. These critical
choices in turn reflect a complex interplay of
many factors, including family upbringing, religious
or philosophical beliefs, as well as practical
matters, such as the cost and availability of foods
and beverages. Importantly, Americans are
increasingly selecting food for health reasons.
Herbs and traditional medicines are being extensively used for healthcare in
almost all the countries since times immemorial. Ancient religious texts are replete
with references on the use of natural products with medicinal properties. Because of
local beliefs and practices and also from cost considerations herbal medicines remain
a popular mode of treatment in the developing countries. Even in the industrialised
society the rising cost of prescription drugs and ensuing side effects of the treatment
make it highly attractive to use the traditional medicine particularly for minor ailments....
Amway Corporation marked its 50th anniversary in May 2009
with a glitzy celebration at the MGM Grand on the Las Vegas
Strip. Spotlights swept across the crowd of well-dressed people
who had come from all over the world for the event. A movie theater–
sized screen splashed the Amway logo against a cobalt blue background.
Cameras fl ashed and music pulsated. The upbeat mood and excitement
inside the auditorium felt similar to the energetic vibe at a national
political convention or a religious rally....
The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come is a Christian allegory written by John Bunyan and published in February, 1678. It is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious English literature, has been translated into more than 200 languages, and has never been out of print. Bunyan began his work while in the Bedfordshire county gaol for violations of the Conventicle Act, which prohibited the holding of religious services outside the auspices of the established Church of England....
