Black Jack: The Dawning of the New Great Age of Satan

As a very long time fan of Bain this latest reveal did not disappoint. He does the hard work and lets us ride along for a show stopping tour of the initiated into the dark and menacing world of our less than beneficent rulers. This isn't a work for the faint of heart or the ignorant. It requires a reading of 911, the most dangerous as a primer to understand how SK's brain works. But once you get it, you get it. And what a ride! My on...

Deification in the Latin Patristic Tradition

"A significant work, as it surveys how the motif of deification is handled by major Latin thinkers. Considerable scholarship has focused on theosis in Greek theology, but scant attention has been given to parallel discussions in Latin Patristic theology. Deification in the Latin Patristic Tradition offers a valuable contribution to the field of Patristic studies."―Gerald McLarney. author of St. Augustine's Interpretation of the Psalm...

"This work is one of the most meticulous studies of any aspect of Islamic thought and practice ever to have been produced...One wishes that a greater number of serious academic studies showed this work's combination of amazing erudition, clarity of expression, trenchant observation, and lightness of touch...Introductions to Islamic law and theology are fairly numerous now, but none is as engaging to read as this."

The Jews of Medieval Western Christendom, 1000-1500

A great introduction to 500 years of Jewish life in Medieval Christian Europe. The book changed my view of Jewish history.

The great Jewish historian Salo Baron critized the prevelant ''lachrymose conception of Jewish history,'' which depicts Jews primarily as victims. Chazan is an excellent example of what Baron hoped for: he writes Jewish...
