Saint Augustine of Hippo: Selections from Confessions and Other Essential Writings—Annotated & Explained, 18 Aug 2010 [cached]
Annotation by Joseph T. Kelley, PhD
With fresh translations drawn from Augustine's voluminous writings and probing facing-page commentary, Augustinian scholar Joseph T. Kelley, PhD, provides insight into the mind and heart of this foundational Christian figure. Kelley illustrates how Augustine's keen intellect, rhetorical skill and passionate faith reshaped the theological language and dogmatic debates of early Christianity. He explores the stormy religious arguments and political upheavals of the fifth century, Augustine's controversial teachings on predestination, sexuality and marriage, and the deep undercurrents of Augustine's spiritual quest that still inspire Christians today.
One can only hope that this book is the first of many on Saint Augustine to flow from Dr. Kelley's pen."
-Donald X. Burt, OSA, professor emeritus, Villanova University
"Becoming acquainted with Christianity necessarily entails encountering Saint Augustine. Joseph Kelley's illuminating anthology is a compelling introduction to the ancient church's most profound thinker."

Dr. Joseph Kelley, Vice President for Mission at Merrimack College and Director of the Center for Augustinian Study and Legacy, has been contacted to present on "Sexual Shame, Spiritual Exile, and Deuteronomy 32:10-13."Because his teaching responsibilities at Merrimack College present a conflict on Wednesday nights, we are considering holding a meeting on a Tuesday or Thursday evening to hear his presentation.

Dr. Joseph Kelley, associate professor of religious and theological studies at Merrimack College, called upon the thinking of Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung to explain the phenomenon. Jung believed external religious images such as statues, icons, and sacraments receive their power from the deeper spiritual realities in the souls of people who revere the images, Kelley said.
"A person sees the image of Jesus somewhere because the inner presence of Christ is active in their spiritual life and is projected out into the external world. So a person's conviction about the outer image is rooted in her or his inner spiritual life," said Kelley.

Gun control led to Holocaust: Jews, others ‘unable to defend themselves,’ says Joe the Plumber
According to Joe the Plumber, gun control is to blame for the Holocaust.
"Joe is a student of history…there's nothing offensive about it, it's just historical fact," Christofanelli told Politicker, "It's a historical fact that Hitler implemented gun control before the Holocaust and that's just a fact that was pointed out in the video."

"It's the charter that we use in the work we do and guides us in the center," said Joseph Kelley, director of the Center for Christian-Jewish-Muslim Relations at Merrimack College. The center's goal is to educate students and area citizens and to increase mutual understanding and prevent prejudices against peoples of different beliefs.
"It was religiously and politically controversial and many Arab countries were against it," Kelley said. The topic was discussed and debated with several drafts written over two years. The final draft was presented in 1964 and approved in 1965.
During that time, Kelley said Pope John XXIII began to change the language of the church which was derogatory to Jews and even led to persecutions.
"During World War II, Pope John XXIII was active in protecting Jews and wanted to strengthen the relationship and asked for a wider discussion in the church with Jewish people," said Kelley, dean of experimental learning at Merrimack.
"The main issue in interfaith dialogue is that if you enter into a real sustained dialogue with someone of a different faith, you begin to understand your own in a new and deeper way," he said.
During his papacy John Paul II made great strides in strengthening the relationship with Jews, Kelley said, because he grew up in Poland and was close to the Jewish community there.
Kelley said the dialogue between Christians and Muslims has not been the same since Sept. 11, 2001.
