The oracle at Delphi once guided the paths of kings and commoners alike, from the Temple of Apollo high on Mount Parnassus. At one time, it was considered to be the centre of the world, but in the tiny and peaceful Greek village of Ano Hora, hidden deep in its shadow, life has revolved around herding and harvesting for countless generations, following the patterns of the seasons―interrupted only by the vagaries of the human heart, which time and again had led brave Greeks away from home to fight for causes they believed in. But when those battles start to hit closer to home, things can’t help but change forever. With the onset of WWII, Greece is invaded by German and Italian forces, pitting neighbour against neighbour and brother against brother. Inevitably, WWII gives birth to the Greek Civil War and the Paidomazoma, wherein 28,000 Greek children are abducted by Greek communist rebels, and transported behind the Iron Curtain, in order to “save them” from the royalist, capitalist agenda. This is a story of courage and determination, qualities for which the Greek people are famous, having never surrendered or bowed down to any outside force ... but what do they do when their own ideologies start to tear them apart from the inside? Focusing on a single family from Ano Hora, Appointment in Delphi beautifully showcases the physical and emotional cost of war and the nobility and self-sacrifice of people willing to lose everything they have in order to protect the ones they love.

There are several divisive issues that separate Christian from Christian in the current century. One issue is the church’s management of clergy sexual abuses of children, teens and adults. A second is the issue of sexual gender orientation and church membership. Contemporary Christian denominations often intermingle the divisive issue of clergy and religious leader sexual abusiveness with the equally divisive issue of sexual gender orientation. In this book Professors Krall and Schirch disentangle and discuss these two issues. They discuss their personal and their professional opinions about ways in which religious and spiritual teaching communities can avoid the institutional perils of abusive clericalism and divisive denominational management practices. Throughout the book, they apply Anabaptist-Mennonite principles of peace-making in situations of sexual violation. Case studies are provided. A feminist hermeneutic is applied. Each letter-essay is auto-ethnographic in style: the professional and the personal are deliberately blurred inside a framework of narrative and story. Each essay is deeply rooted in its author’s academic interests and in her personal life history. This book can be a text in graduate and undergraduate classrooms. It can also be used in denominational self-study programs.
