In this authoritative and passionately argued book, Robert Beckford explores the future of Black British Pentecostalism in a society where the notion of White supremacy--even in faith--is all too evident. Drawing on Black, womanist, and post-colonial theologies of liberation, he urges the Black Church to regain its traditional prophetic role as part of its ministry. He suggests that the Caribbean's first liberation theology, Rastafari, has much to offer all Christians concerned with speaking prophetically into social and political life in Britain. Reflecting on aspects of Rastafari, Black Pentecostalism and the meaning of Jesus in the world today, he develops a new model for a Black political faith--a Dread Pentecostal theology.

“Brilliant, funny . . . the best math teacher you never had.”—San Francisco Chronicle Once considered tedious, the field of statistics is rapidly evolving into a discipline Hal Varian, chief economist at Google, has actually called “sexy.” From batting averages and political polls to game shows and medical research, the real-world application of statistics continues to grow by leaps and bounds. How can we catch schools that cheat on standardized tests? How does Netflix know which movies you’ll like? What is causing the rising incidence of autism? As best-selling author Charles Wheelan shows us in Naked Statistics, the right data and a few well-chosen statistical tools can help us answer these questions and more. For those who slept through Stats 101, this book is a lifesaver. Wheelan strips away the arcane and technical details and focuses on the underlying intuition that drives statistical analysis. He clarifies key concepts such as inference, correlation, and regression analysis, reveals how biased or careless parties can manipulate or misrepresent data, and shows us how brilliant and creative researchers are exploiting the valuable data from natural experiments to tackle thorny questions. And in Wheelan’s trademark style, there’s not a dull page in sight. You’ll encounter clever Schlitz Beer marketers leveraging basic probability, an International Sausage Festival illuminating the tenets of the central limit theorem, and a head-scratching choice from the famous game show Let’s Make a Deal—and you’ll come away with insights each time. With the wit, accessibility, and sheer fun that turned Naked Economics into a bestseller, Wheelan defies the odds yet again by bringing another essential, formerly unglamorous discipline to life.

I know God loves me but I want to experience His love. There are moments in every Christian's life when we hit a "spiritual glass ceiling." In those frustrating moments, we wonder, why do others experience love and intimacy with God but not me? The remedy is not a checklist of actions but a personal, powerful call to come home, to come out of the cold, to forsake the false self--our old identity--driven by pursuit of security, esteem, and power. Transformed into Fire explores the profound spiritual depths found within the routine of daily life through the discovery of our true selves in Christ. You are invited to journey toward the warm embrace of the Father where being and doing, prayer and action--all of life--become a fiery response to His intimate love. "In our fast-paced and hectic world, we can often miss what it really means to love God. [Transformed into Fire is] a treasure of a book, thoughtful and . . . meaty." --Nancie Carmichael author and founding co-publisher Virtue Magazine Judith Hougen (M.F.A. Creative Writing, University of Montana) lives in St. Paul where she is a professor of English. She is an award-winning writer who has published a collection of poetry and has had work featured in numerous literary anthologies, journals, and popular magazines.
