The Word according to Eve : women and the Bible in ancient times and our own by Cullen Murphy ( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 1,489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the world that created the Bible, there were no female scholars and theologians; yet since World War II, owing to such stunning discoveries as the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi texts and to advances in historical understanding, a new generation of scholars has found new ways of reading the Scriptures - including querying the role that male divines have traditionally assigned to women, both those who populate the Bible and those living in the modern world. Surveying the new scholarship and the personalities of those who have created it, The Word According to Eve not only explores afresh the history of our religions but offers exciting new challenges to our sense of worship
Are we Rome? : the fall of an empire and the fate of America by Cullen Murphy ( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The rise and fall of ancient Rome has been on American minds from the beginning of our Republic. Depending on who's doing the talking, the history of Rome serves either as a triumphal call to action, or a dire warning of imminent collapse. Esteemed editor and author Murphy ventures past the pundits' rhetoric to draw nuanced lessons about how we might avoid Rome's demise. Working on a canvas that extends far beyond the issue of an overstretched military, Murphy reveals a wide array of similarities between the two empires: the blinding, insular culture of our capitals; the debilitating effect of corruption; the paradoxical issue of borders; and the weakening of the body politic through various forms of "privatization." Most pressingly, he argues that we most resemble Rome in the burgeoning corruption of our government and in our arrogant ignorance of the world outside--two things that are in our power to change.--From publisher description

Program #822: "Title: Are We Rome? Comparisons between the Roman Empire and the American Republic have been fashionable since colonial days. The current fascination is with the decline of the Roman Empire and the fate of America as a "single superpower" in the 21st century. while there are useful contrasts to be drawn, it is just as important to recognize major differences. America in the 21st century has a dynamic inclusiveness as its core that many love preserve American influence if the country allows it to flourish. This is a central argument of Cullen Murphy's new book, Are We Rome?"--Track sheet
