Sandro Botticelli created at least five bust-length images of idealized young women that are traditionally identified as Simonetta Vespucci (1453-1476), a Florentine beauty and the platonic love of Giuliano de' Medici. In this thesis I analyze one of those images, the Allegorical Portrait of a Lady (c. 1480), which is today in the Friedrich Kisters collection in Switzerland. I argue that, while the painting may have begun life as an idealized image of a Florentine beauty, the Kisters Botticelli should be most accurately read as a depiction of the Egyptian goddess Isis. My identification of the subject matter is grounded in references to recent technical analyses of the work, a critical re-assessment of the iconography, and consideration of the social and historical context in which the painting was produced. A 2009 technical analysis of the Kisters painting revealed significant modifications to the image that took place in Botticelli's workshop. The changes included the incorporation of an elaborate background, the inclusion of a scarf around the neck of the figure, and the exposure of a single, lactating breast. These, I suggest, were completed to shift the identity of the woman from an unknown, idealized woman, or perhaps even Simonetta Vespucci, to the Egyptian goddess Isis. I argue that the iconographic alterations in Botticelli's painting align the image with ancient texts discussing Isis, such as Plutarch's De Iside et Osiride (120 C.E.), Apuleius's Metamorphoses (c. 160-170 C.E.), and the dialogues of Hermes Trismegistus. Finally, I reconstruct possible contexts for the imagery in reference to Renaissance collecting of Egyptian antiquities, Florentine Neoplatonic interest in connections between Isis and the Virgin Mary, and the literary genre of illustrious women. Recognition of the figure as Isis identifies this as one of the earliest known representations of the goddess in the Italian Renaissance and may broaden our understanding of Botticelli's interest in mythology as well as stimulate new research in field of unidentified, idealized beauties; the Italian Renaissance interest in Egypt; and Botticelli's workshop.

Despite astute critiques and available resources for alternative modes of thinking and practicing, individualism continues to be a dominating and constraining ideology in the field of pastoral psychotherapy and counseling. Philip Rieff was one of the first to highlight the negative implications of individualism in psychotherapeutic theories and practices. As heirs and often enthusiasts of the Freudian tradition of which Rieff and others are critical, pastoral theologians have felt the sting of his charge, and yet the empirical research that McClure presents shows that pastoral-counseling practitioners resist change. Their attempts to overcome an individualistic perspective have been limited and ineffective because individualism is embedded in the field's dominant theological and theoretical resources, practices, and organizational arrangements. Only a radical reappraisal of these will make possible pastoral counseling practices in a post-individualistic mode. McClure proposes several critical transformations: broadening and deepening the operative theologies used to guide the healing practice, expanding the role of the pastoral counselor, reimagining the operative anthropology, reclaiming sin and judgment, nuancing the particular against the individual, rethinking the ideal outcome of the practices, and reimagining the organizational structures that support the practices. Only this level of revisioning will enable this ministry of the church to move beyond its individualistic limitations and offer healing in more complex, effective, and socially adequate ways.

The story of the civil rights movement is well-known, popularized by both the media and the academy. Yet the version of the story recounted time and again by both history books and PBS documentaries is a simplified one, reduced to an inspirational but ultimately facile narrative framed around Dr. King, the Kennedys, and the redemptive days of Montgomery and Memphis, in which black individuals become the rescued survivors. This story renders the mass of black people invisible, refusing to take seriously everyday people whose years of persistent struggle often made the big events possible. Time Longer than Rope unearths the ordinary roots of extraordinary change, demonstrating the depth and breadth of black oppositional spirit and activity that preceded the civil rights movement. The diversity of activism covered by this collection extends from tenant farmers' labor reform campaign in the 1919 Elaine, Arkansas massacre to Harry T. Moore’s leadership of a movement that registered 100,000 black Floridians years before Montgomery, and from women's participation in the Garvey movement to the changing meaning of the Lincoln Memorial. Concentrating on activist efforts in the South, key themes emerge, including the under appreciated importance of historical memory and community building, the divisive impact of class and sexism, and the shifting interplay between individual initiative and structural constraints. More than simply illuminating a hitherto marginalized fragment of American history, Time Longer than Rope provides a crucial pre-history of the modern civil rights movement. In the process, it alters our entire understanding of African American activism and the very meaning of “civil rights.”

Character development for communities of faith Mark Olson believes that trying to meet unrealistic expectations for church growth, along with expectations that pastors be all things to all people, has resulted in low morale, even burnout, among clergy and dissension within congregations.Olson's book argues that church-growth models exemplify and exacerbate the tendencies of the modern age and Constantinian Christianity, holding the church hostage to technique and marketing. These assumptions set up pastors and churches for disappointment and failure. But they also, in his opinion, miss an opportunity to envision a faithful alternative to the consumeristic church.Olson's valuable book calls church leaders to faithful, bold, and courageous rethinking of congregational life and witness in substance, purpose, and style. His own 20 years of ministry in rural, suburban, and urban congregations inform an alternative rooted deeply in the past and anchored in strong leadership and worship, but also profoundly compassionate and engaged in the surrounding community. In this model, pastors' primary responsibilities are not to fix everything and everybody but to enable people to be present to each other and to provide hope.
