The author has used a secular term usually used in anthropology, to refer to the way some Christians can fall into devastating evil. In the book, he proposes using 'taboo' as a way of describing a Christian's fall into depravity. It is an attempt to use the word as a description. Most believers don't understand how any Christian can fall so dramatically - but, some do anyway! The author was prompted to write the book during teaching the Book of Job to fellow believers in the church. The book itself does not use Job references. 'Breaking God's Taboos' is an introduction to this new concept, possibly as a foundational work leading to a more detailed book later. The book avoids technical and academic higher concepts so that the reader can simply read it as one would a novel. Two major current problem areas are shown - homosexuality and jihad. Other topics are also mentioned. The aim is to show how a person progresses from indulging in a random sin, though to habitually indulging, to 'breaking the taboo gate'. This is when the sinner's identity is his sin.

At the end of the day, Taboo Tabernacle isnt just about taboo topics like sex, drugs, rock n roll, religion, politics, faith, witchcraft, and cannabis. It isnt even about science, math, history, medicine, justice or apologetics; although, there is much of that in it. Its about connecting people to Christ in a way that can not only surprise them, but can electrify them. From the depths of space to the lowest sub-atomic particle in the human body, the sustainers fingerprint is everywhere. I want to help people get so excited about Gods amazing love that they cant stop talking about it. From the balanced believer to the super secularist, I believe that all people suffer from false presuppositions about life and the way things are at one point or another. Whether its from the way we were raised, something traumatic that happened to us growing up, or perhaps it is simply the default consensus opinion of the culture we are currently in; we all have presuppositions, some true and some false. I would like all of us to start breaking down the man made walls of false presupposition that separate us today, and replace them with bridges of truth and understanding from a biblical worldview that makes sense in both the physical world and spiritual realm. Get ready to look at life through a whole new lens.

Change is the most significant factor of contemporary society and humanity s past. This book represents the first substantial attempt since the 1970s to synthesize and critique sociocultural change theories in anthropology and relate them to trends in the social and physical sciences. It emphasizes the most recent contributions especially complexity and emergence theory, social movements, network analysis, and globalization. Ervin presents a rich legacy of theories and case studies accessible to both the established scholar and the beginning student. He considers how theories and insights can inform policy as humanity faces crises of globalization.Key Features of the Text Designed for scholars and students seeking a comprehensive analysis of the relation between anthropological theory and practice. Assesses big questions facing the social sciences: Do cultures and societies change or is it really individuals, families, and social networks? Are there prime movers of change environment, technology, economics, ideas, powerful leaders, or cultural contacts? Are there structures embedded within changes and changes built into structures? Original contribution of the book is the integration of sociological and anthropological theories, including networks, social movements, complexity, world systems, etc. Online appendices include resources for students on applied and practice anthropology."

Together, and for the first time in any language, the 24 essays gathered in these volumes provide a composite picture of the history of religion in ancient China from the emergence of writing ca. 1250 BC to the collapse of the first major imperial dynasty in 220 AD. It is a multi-faceted tale of changing gods and rituals that includes the emergence of a form of “secular humanism” that doubts the existence of the gods and the efficacy of ritual and of an imperial orthodoxy that founds its legitimacy on a distinction between licit and illicit sacrifices. Written by specialists in a variety of disciplines, the essays cover such subjects as divination and cosmology, exorcism and medicine, ethics and self-cultivation, mythology, taboos, sacrifice, shamanism, burial practices, iconography, and political philosophy. Produced under the aegis of the Centre de recherche sur les civilisations chinoise, japonaise et tibétaine (UMR 8155) and the École Pratique des Hautes Études (Paris).

This collection of essays covers the related areas of aesthetics and politics, both in the field of theatre and in everyday life. Each contributor seeks to illustrate how drama subverts the foundations of the accepted models of perception and how it mediates on its own conventions.

This book argues that the breaking and re-making of frames of analysis underlie the history of theorizing in anthropology. Pamela J. Stewart and Andrew J. Strathern note that this mode of analysis risks fabricating over-essentialized dichotomies between viewpoints. The authors advocate a mindful, nuanced, people-centered approach to all theorizing-one that avoids total system approaches (-isms) and suggest that theory should relate cogently to ethnography. Mindful anthropology, as this book envisages it, is not a specific theory but a philosophical aspiration for the discipline as a whole.
