10747 The Gospel According to Dr. Seuss
James W. Kemp
Judson Press
ISBN 0-8170-1457-8
TH - Theology / THK / Book
The stories of one of the world's most beloved children's authors are both imaginative and entertaining. But a closer look at Dr. Seuss's stories reveals that many are inspirational as well as instructive. James Kemp has identified as his favorite theologian not Barth or Pannenberg, but the inimitable Dr. Seuss. In this readily accessible resource, Kemp finds parallels between the actions of cats in hats, Grinches, Snitches, Sneetches, and other Creachas and lessons found in Scripture. Thus, as the author shares his enthusiasm for the creativity and wisdom of Dr. Seuss, both the meaning and the relevance of many Bible passages come to life.

Each chapter will help readers gain not only a deeper understanding of the popular Lewis series, but a deeper understanding of God himself.
10745 The Gospel According to The Beatles
Steve Turner
Westminster John Knox Press
ISBN 978-0-664-22983-2
TH - Theology / THT / Book
Renowned British music journalist and author Steve Turner surveys the religious and spiritual influence of the Beatles, the band that changed the history of music forever. With new interviews, never-before-published material, and fresh insights, Turner helps the reader understand the religious and spiritual ideas and ideals that influenced the music and lives of the Beatles and helps us see how the Fab Four influenced our own lives and culture.

Topics discussed include the religious upbringing of John, Paul, George, and Ringo; the backlash in the United States after John Lennon's "The Beatles are more popular than Jesus" comment; the dabbling in Eastern religion; the use of drugs to attempt to enter a higher level of consciousness; and the overall legacy that the Beatles and their music have left. While there is no religious system that permanently anchored the Beatles or their music, they did leave a gospel, Turner concludes: one of love, peace, personal freedom, and the search for transcendence.

10740 A New Handbook of Christian Theologians
Donald W. Musser
0-687-27803-1
ISBN 0-687-27803-1
TH - Theology / THM / Book
In recent years, the flow of Christian theology has been channeled in diverse streams represented by such trends and movements as black theology, liberation theology, feminist theology, and womanist theology. To survey this abundance and diversity of current Christian theology, this book examines the theologies of representative theologians. Particularly to help students navigate the sea of information, the editors have identified various routes for reading, and have traced several threads or issues common to many of the essays, thus demarcating such recurrent concerns as the ways in which the theologians consider the sources and goals for theology, their variant assumptions and conclusions about the nature of God, their divergent approaches to understanding the person and purpose of the Christ, and their distinct expectations for the destiny of history and faith.

TH - Theology / THJ / Book
In this new edition Robert Jastrow discusses the scientific discoveries that bring science into agreement or conflict with religion and examines the latest evidence for, as well as against the Big Bang theory, which argues that the Universe exploded into being. He explains the evidence for the mysterious Anthropic Principle, which asserts that the Universe was designed for mankind to live in and examines the case for and against Darwin's theory of evolution. This edition examines these issues from the Catholic, Protestant and Jewish viewpoints. Robert Jastrow is also the author of "Red Giants and White Dwarfs" and "Until the Sun Dies".
