In this book, which itself is the outcome of an Award winning research work, Fr chigbo utilized the resources in Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel’s Meta-psychology of the Meaning of Human Life to study the Phenomena of the proliferation of prayer and healing ministries in Igboland. He states: The religious and spiritual world-outlooks of Ndi Igbo predisposed them to seek for meaning of life in a religious-spiritual setting. The double assaults of the invasive colonialism and Christian Missionary exploits, as well as, these catastrophes: slavery and slave trade, the Nigerian-Biafran war, Neo-Colonialism, the exploitation, marginalization, and oppression of the Igbo people motivated them to raise questions about the fundamental quality of ‘being human’ – who am I and what is the meaning of my life? The economic hardship, political instability and the attack on fundamental Igbo cultural heritage also joined forces with the other factors mentioned above to cause existential frustration and existential vacuum within the Igbo population. The author developed and explored what he calls “Heschelian Diagnostic Tool”, as well as, the ten psycho-pastoral phases in the search for the meaning in Human life. He proposed a new vision for prayer and healing ministry which is centered on the empowerment of each individual person to respond responsibly to the demand-quality of life – to engage in actions that are responses to the questions life poses before each unique individual. This is an invaluable resource for all those involved or interested in the diverse field of pastoral care.

Repeatedly Shakespeare dramatizes one who prays when no one is listening, interested, or even there. This study reads the scenario parallel to early modern anxieties surrounding prayer itself, suggesting a vision of religious syncretism Shakespeare imagines for his world.
what should be there, at the one who should be listening, the centre that would be recognised by those who look on, those who instead recognise the unheard prayer's call for justice. as such, the unheard prayer is a display designed to ...

The publication of Martha B. Helfer’s The Word Unheard: Legacies of Anti-Semitism in German Literature and Culture marks a stunningly original new direction in the interpretation of canonical works of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century German literature. Between 1749 and 1850—the formative years of the so-called Jewish Question in Germany—the emancipation debates over granting full civil and political rights to Jews provided the topical background against which all representations of Jewish characters and concerns in literary texts were read. Helfer focuses sharply on these debates and demonstrates through close readings of works by Gotthold Lessing, Friedrich Schiller, Achim von Arnim, Annette von Droste- Hülshoff, Adalbert Stifter, and Franz Grillparzer how disciplinary practices within the field of German studies have led to systematic blind spots in the scholarship on anti-Semitism to date. While all the authors discussed are well known and justly celebrated, the particular works addressed represent an effective mix of enduring classics and less recognized, indeed often scandalously overlooked, texts whose consideration leads to a reevaluation of the author’s more mainstream oeuvre. Although some of the works and authors chosen have previously been noted for their anti-Semitic proclivities, the majority have not, and some have even been marked by German scholarship as philo-Semitic—a view that The Word Unheard undertakes not so much to refute as to complicate, and in the process to question not only these texts but also the deafness of the German scholarly tradition. With implications that reach into many disciplines, The Word Unheard will be a foundational study for all scholars of modern Germany.
Unheard. “The Jew” is not, and cannot be, just another “other” in German discourse: the very fact of the Holocaust makes “the Jew” a privileged signifier, and lends urgency to the study of the genealogy of anti-Semitism in German ...
