During the years 1933 to 1939, a pro-Nazi movement developed in Canada. With the support of the German National Socialist Party, Canadian pro-Nazi institutions were formed: clubs, rallies, schools, and newspapers. The movement ended in failure. The author analyzes the reasons for the formation and decline of the National Socialist Party in Canada, describing in the process the general characteristics of the German community in Canada, the extent of Nazi activity in this country, and the influence of the Canadian environment on the movement. The book, well researched and carefully documented, is an original contribution to Canadian history of the 1930s.

How Silent Were the Churches?

Canadian Protestantism and the Jewish Plight during the Nazi Era

Winner of the 1997 Jewish Book Committee award for scholarship on a Canadian Jewish subject. Ever since Abella and Troper (None Is too Many, 1982) exposed the anti-Semitism behind Canada’s refusal to allow Jewish escapees from the Third Reich to immigrate, the Canadian churches have been under a shadow. Were the churches silent or largely silent, as alleged, or did they speak? In How Silent Were the Churches? a Jew and a Christian examine the Protestant record. Old letters, sermons and other church documents yield a profile of contemporary Protestant attitudes. Countless questions are raised — How much anti-Semitism lurked in Canadian Protestantism? How much pro-German feeling? How accurately did the churches of Canada read the signs of the times? Or did they bury their heads in the sand? Davies and Nefsky discover some surprising answers. The theologies and the historical and ethnic configurations of Protestant Canada, encompassing religious communities from the United Church to the Quakers, are brought into relief against the background of the Great Depression, the rise of fascism in Europe and the resurgence of nativism in Canadian society. The authors conclude their study with an evaluation of the limits to Protestant influence in Canada and the dilemmas faced by religious communities and persons of conscience when confronted by the realities of power.

On the morning of November 29, 1801, a wooden wagon, lumbered through the streets of Cork and moved slowly in the direction of the port of Cobh. Absorbing the bumps in the springless cart was a young sworn United Irishman named Murtagh Ahern and his two brothers. They had been sentenced to suffer death for rebellious outrages and the brutal murders of a Tithe-Proctor?s family at Croom in County Limerick. Their death sentences commuted to life saw them chained below the deck of the ?Death ship? Atlas and spend 220 agonising days amongst sick, hungry and disease ridden inmates. It would be the worst voyage in the history of Irish convict transportation. At 2 o?clock on July 6, 1802 Murtagh arrived in Port Jackson, his neck and ankles locked in heavy irons and chains, with only a tattered shirt and trousers to protect him from the extreme elements. Penniless, sick, hungry and treated as a beast of burden, he was classed as an inferior being, one on the scrap heap of humanity. He would suffer, but survive, the most turbulent times in the history of Australia. Murtagh married English convict Mary Abbey and produced seventeen children. He worked for Lieutenant Edward Lord and Lieutenant-Governor David Collins in Van Diemen?s Land, received a pardon from Governor Lachlan Macquarie, became a constable, a hotelier and a farmer. This book gives a sweep of Irish history from Murtagh?s ancestor Brian Boru the High King of Ireland, the dark days of Oliver Cromwell, the horrors and privations of the 1798 Irish rebellion to the discovery and founding of Australia. It details the struggles of succeeding Governors and the characters who made Australia what it is today. The second volume also covers the early Irish family records of Murtagh and Mary's family in Mileham.

James the Brother of Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls

The Damascus Code, the Tent of David, the New Covenant, and the Blood of Christ

In this concluding volume of James the Brother of Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls II: The Damascus Code, the Tent of David, the New Covenant, and the Blood of Christ, renowned biblical scholar Robert Eisenman compresses in a more reader-friendly format the results of previous work, creating a more comprehensive picture of Jesus’ brother James as “the pivotal Opposition Leader” of the time leading up to the War against Rome (66-70 CE). Is there an interconnecting code between the New Testament and the Dead Sea Scrolls? Eisenman – who broke the Scrolls monopoly and was the first to identify the so-called “James Ossuary” as fraudulent – shows that there is. Moreover, in this newly-revised volume, he ‘decodes’ many beloved and famous sayings of the Gospels, such as “Every plant which My Heavenly Father has not planted shall be uprooted,”“A man shall not be known by what goes into his mouth but by what comes out of it,”“Do not throw Holy Things to dogs”, etc. including chapters like “The Dogs who Licked Poor Lazarus’ Sores” or “Rabbi Eliezer’s Bad Breath and Lazarus’ Stinking Body”. In identifying the Scrolls as the literature of “the Messianic Movement in Palestine”; he not only connects “James the Brother of Jesus” to the Leadership of ‘Early Christianity’ in Palestine, but also to "the Righteous Teacher” in the Scrolls. Offering a point-by-point analysis of James' relationship to the Habakkuk Commentary, The Damascus Document, The War Scroll, etc., he also illumines the subjects "the Pella Flight and raising the Fallen Tent of David”, “Paul as an Herodian,”“the Wilderness Camps,” and “Peter”’s role as “a prototypical Essene” but in Acts as a mouthpiece for anti-Semitism. In doing so he, not only clarifies the true history of Palestine in the First Century, but deciphers the way ‘the picture’ of “Jesus” was put together in the Gospels and, as a consequence, what can be known about the real “Jesus”. He also covers subjects like “the New Covenant in the Land of Damascus” and Paul’s attack on James on the Temple steps, extending it to the competition between Paul and “the Party of James” over “Circumcision” in Antioch and the conversion of Queen Helen Adiabene and her sons in Northern Syria, who led the “famine relief” effort ascribed to Paul in Acts. Moreover, he will show the figure of James to have been so influential and highly-regarded in the Jerusalem of his day that his death was the capstone event leading up to the Jewish Revolt against Rome. In making these arguments and exposing actual ‘overwrites’, a crucial new point that emerges is his identification of the Qumran document called by scholars “MMT” as a ‘Jamesian’ Letter to “the Great King of the Peoples beyond the Euphrates.” At the same time, he unravels the real “code” behind the pivotal New Testament allusion: “This is the Cup of the New Covenant in My Blood,” connecting it to “the New Covenant in the Land of Damascus” and “giving the Cup of the Right Hand of the Lord ( "the Cup of Divine Wrath”) to drink” in both the Damascus Document and Habakkuk Pesher in the Scrolls. Did Paul know the meaning of the famous Damascus Document (discovered in Cairo in the Nineteenth Century) “to set the Holy Things up according to their precise specifications”– or the reverse of it, as Peter is presented as being made to understand by “a Voice out of Heaven” and “a Tablecloth” descending out of it –“to make no distinctions between Holy and profane”– on a rooftop in Gaza? In this series, Eisenman’s revelations will extend far beyond these examples. James the Brother of Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls, both I and II, will complete the task of rescuing James from the oblivion into which he was cast, either intentionally or via benign neglect. His conclusion will, therefore, definitively bear on the problem of “the Historical Jesus”: “Who and whatever James was, so was Jesus.” Eisenman’s many readers will not be disappointed.

Life is like a river, changing course when least expected. Slowly drifting down the Euphrates River on a reed raft, a young Babylonian man named Gil has escaped an indentured servitude and is on a quest to find his father. His father had failed to return from a trading voyage with goods promised to the Babylonian merchants who financed his trip. According to Babylonian law, Gil was placed to labor in a brickyard and his family was now in jeopardy. Pursued by the henchmen of the merchants, Gil reaches the sea and finds himself caught by the raging waters of a sudden storm and pushed into the expanse of the Persian Gulf. Nearly losing his life, he awakens on an outpost island of the ancient trading center of Dilmun where he meets a merchant seaman from the Mesopotamian city of Ur. With the help of the seaman Gil arrives in Dilmun only to learn that pirates have captured his father. With no resources, Gil cannot continue the search. A seaman named Ea-Nazer takes pity on Gil and decides to help him find his father. An old navigator from Dilmun named Abd Manaf who knows the waters that they will be sailing offers to aid in the search and joins the crew. Sailing through the Straits of Hormuz they enter into the expanse of the Arabian Sea and cross to the coast of ancient Sindh. Gil and his new companions are drawn into an adventure that will lead them to encounters with pirates, the people of Sindh, India, Ancient Sri Lanka and stormy seas. As the story develops, it weaves a rich tapestry of adventure and of life in the 6th century BC. Gil successfully finds his father, only to lose him to the ravages of fever. Now he knows he can never return to Babylon. He is a wanted man. He will never again be able to hold his true love Amata in his arms. In order to create a new life for himself using the lessons learned by his father’s side, he begins trading goods along the coast of Sindh. With success his life again has meaning. Although he still occasionally worries about those he left behind in Babylon, he is content. After many years of coastal trading, he is approached by a young Sindhi woman who is the cousin of a crewman that he dismissed for dishonesty. She asks him to help locate her father on the island of Sri Lanka and retrieve a treasure that her father has found. The beautiful and feisty Aditi assures Gil that her cousin Ashoka regrets his actions and has recommended Gil for his seamanship and honesty. Gil is hesitant but is intrigued with Aditi and her story. After consulting his crew he agrees to the trip and sets sail toward the tip of the Indian subcontinent and the mysterious island country of Sri Lanka. This is a tale of friendships gained and lost, of love and new beginnings. Gil’s old world crumbles and his new world develops into a life that fulfills him.

The Application Commentary of the Gospel of Matthew is a verse by verse examination of the Gospel of Matthew and should be seriously considered for application in personal/family devotions, group Bible studies and Sunday school classes. It is designed to build up and equip the Christian (new believer or lifelong) in understanding and living out God's Word.
