Interactive Explorations titles include:
Revealing® World History to 1500 presents digestible segments of information in a format that improves understanding and retention of the material. The courseware provides a balanced approach to world history rather than focusing on western civilization with nods to other parts of the world.
In a self-paced and responsive format, Revealing® Philosophy is infused with material that provides a more comprehensive approach to philosophy in the Western tradition than most contemporary textbooks, including feminist, indigenous, American, and non-Western philosophies
Revealing® Religion offers students a compelling look at the nature of religion, drawing on examples from a great variety of religious traditions. Topics of current interest are explored, including religion and violence, religion and gender, religion and environmentalism, neuroscientific accounts of religion, and atheism.
Revealing® World Religions includes twelve modules that explore the religions most often taught in introductory courses—Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Daoism, Confucianism, Shinto, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—along with modules on the academic study of religion, indigenous religions, and religious pluralism in the 21st century.
Revealing® Western Religions guides students on their academic study of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, looking at the history, practices, and beliefs of each religion. Images, sounds, excerpts from scripture, and first-hand accounts of contemporary practitioners enliven students’ exploration.
Blending emphases on story and scholarship, Revealing® the Hebrew Bible addresses the fundamental questions necessary for navigating the Hebrew Bible and for historical understanding of its rich contents. The text provides not only frequent references to primary sources, but also the primary sources themselves, especially the NRSV Hebrew Bibl
Revealing® the New Testament is designed to equip students for responsible engagement by bringing the New Testament to life as a historically situated, theologically diverse, and ethically fraught text—or, rather, an anthology of early Christian texts, each with its own distinctive voice. This lively introduction engages each of the narratives and letters that make up the New Testament on its own terms.
Revealing® Paul equips students to engage appreciatively, knowledgeably, and critically with Paul, his letters, and his complex legacy. Students will acquire a sophisticated understanding of ancient pseudonymity, “the new perspective on Paul,” and the theological content of the Pauline letters in relation to their circumstances of production.
Revealing® the New Testament Narratives is a timely and unique critical introduction to the six full-length narratives in the New Testament—the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John; the Acts of the Apostles; and the Book of Revelation. Students learn the main critical methods used to study the narratives; who wrote them, why, and in what circumstances; their theologies and christologies; how they work as plotted narratives; how gender is represented and constructed; how Judaism is represented and embodied; and how politics infuses them, especially issues of social justice and relations to empire.
Aiming to be the most accessible introduction to these ancient, often obscure letters available, Revealing® the New Testament Letters guides students to engage appreciatively, knowledgeably, and critically with each letter, understanding its original purpose, its theological message, and its ethical prescriptions, as well as any ethical conundrums it throws up for contemporary readers.
