Summary Book Review The millennial Kingdom of Christ (Rev 20,1-10) :
Download or read book in PDF The millennial Kingdom of Christ (Rev 20,1-10) written by Onyema Eke Wilfred and published by Gregorian Biblical BookShop. This book was released on 2013-03-20 with total page 320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Of all the themes in the book of Revelation none has proved to be more controversial than the Millennial Kingdom of Christ. Notwithstanding the very vast bibliography on the theme, there is not yet a critical history which systematically measures the adequacy of the interpretations of Rev. 20,1-10 made by different interpreters. The first part of this book sets our to fill this lacuna by making available in one place the standard exegetical responses, of the past and present, to the enigmas of Rev 20,1-10. The second part, in dialogue with scholarly opinions, offers a carefully thought out exegesis of the text containing original perspectives that help to overcome the noticeable weak points in the contributions of critical biblical scholarship on this subject. It also attempts to penetrate into the theological message hidden in the suggestive words and images in the text. After that, it goes ahead to determine an interpretative paradigm that is profitable for the pastoral and spiritual application of the theological message. The exegete and the theologian will find in this study helpful data for their research. This work can also help anyone bewildered by the millenarian prophecies often associated with Rev 20,1-10 to discern the aberrations in the text’s interpretation that are not the correct statements of it’s message and meaning.

Download or read book in PDF Cycles of Hatred and Rage written by Katherine C. Donahue and published by Springer. This book was released on 2019-05-07 with total page 221 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This edited collection addresses a growing concern in Europe and the United States about the future of the European Union, democratic institutions, and democracy itself. The current success of right-wing parties—marked by the adoption of extremist nationalistic rhetoric aimed to incite fear of the “other” and the use of authoritarian policies when attaining the majority—is putting pressure on basic human rights and the rule of law. Eight sociocultural anthropologists, working in England, Northern Ireland, Italy, France, Poland, Germany, Hungary and the United States use varying methodological and theoretical approaches to inspect a number of such parties and their supporters, while assessing the underpinnings of current right-wing successes in what has heretofore been a recurring post-war cycle. The research collected in Cycles of Hatred and Rage supports the validity of the above concerns, and it ultimately suggests that in the current battle between democratic globalists and authoritarian nationalists, the outcome is far from clear.
Download or read book in PDF Revelation written by William C. Weinrich and published by InterVarsity Press. This book was released on 2005-12-09 with total page 487 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Revelation to John—with its vivid images and portraits of conflict leading up to the formation of a new heaven and a new earth—was widely read, even as it was variously interpreted in the early church. Drawing heavily on both Eastern and Western ancient commentators, much appearing in English for the first time, this ACCS volume is a treasure trove of early interpretation.
Download or read book in PDF Revelation written by G. K. Beale and published by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing. This book was released on 2015-01-02 with total page 576 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: G. K. Beale s monumental New International Greek Testament Commentary volume on Revelation has been highly praised since its publication in 1999. This shorter commentary distills the superb grammatical analysis and exegesis from that tome (over 1,300 pages) into a book more accessible and pertinent to preachers, students, and general Christian readers. As in the original commentary, Beale views Revelation as an integrated whole, as a conscious continuation of the Old Testament prophetic books, and shows that recognizing Revelation s nearly constant use of Old Testament allusions is key to unlocking its meaning. Interspersed throughout the volume are more than sixty sets of Suggestions for Reflection to help readers better grasp the relevance of Revelation to their lives and our world today.
Summary Book Review The Lord of the Sabbath Opens His Book of Revelation :
Download or read book in PDF The Lord of the Sabbath Opens His Book of Revelation written by Christopher Fung and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2017-09-11 with total page 258 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Intuitive logical thinking would suggest that Revelation should be: One biblically coherent and complete narration, That uses only natural and biblical symbols, To retell God's consistent work from beginning to end; That reveals Jesus and his resurrection as the focus; To call for decisive response from every person, For the creation which God loves and will glorify; To close God's written oracle to humankind. But almost no one has been able to demonstrate these. Through the lens of God bringing his created order from the beginning to his final Sabbath in Jesus Christ, and noticing an overlooked peculiarity of Revelation (chapter 20 is glaringly different to the rest of the chapters), the "mysteries" of Revelation are shown to be plainly manifested truths already in the Bible rather than esoteric and hidden teachings still to be deciphered. Centering Jesus in all things, Revelation filters out inconsequential and errant teachings and highlights the essential core of Judeo-Christianity to prompt a response from every person made in God's image. Poignantly, it shines a light on the current global crises--environmental, political, religious, and economic. This book's common-sense, context-first exegesis sets it apart from most other Revelation commentaries on the market.
Download or read book in PDF Degenerative Realism written by Christy Wampole and published by Columbia University Press. This book was released on 2020-06-23 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A new strain of realism has emerged in France. The novels that embody it represent diverse fears—immigration and demographic change, radical Islam, feminism, new technologies, globalization, American capitalism, and the European Union—but these books, often best-sellers, share crucial affinities. In their dystopian visions, the collapse of France, Europe, and Western civilization is portrayed as all but certain and the literary mode of realism begins to break down. Above all, they depict a degenerative force whose effects on the nation and on reality itself can be felt. Examining key novels by Michel Houellebecq, Frédéric Beigbeder, Aurélien Bellanger, Yann Moix, and other French writers, Christy Wampole identifies and critiques this emergent tendency toward “degenerative realism.” She considers the ways these writers draw on social science, the New Journalism of the 1960s, political pamphlets, reportage, and social media to construct an atmosphere of disintegration and decline. Wampole maps how degenerative realist novels explore a world contaminated by conspiracy theories, mysticism, and misinformation, responding to the internet age’s confusion between fact and fiction with a lament for the loss of the real and an unrelenting emphasis on the role of the media in crafting reality. In a time of widespread populist anxieties over the perceived decline of the French nation, this book diagnoses the literary symptoms of today’s reactionary revival.

Download or read book in PDF Translation and Circulation of Migration Literature written by Stephanie Schwerter and published by Frank & Timme GmbH. This book was released on 2022-07-22 with total page 309 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the field of Translation Studies no book-length work in English has yet been dedicated to the translation and circulation of migration literature. The authors of this volume seek to contribute to filling this gap through a detailed study of texts belonging to a variety of literary genres and engaging with the phenomenon of migration in different parts of the world. Not only will the challenges met by translators be discussed, but the different ways in which the translated texts travel from one cultural sphere to another will also be explored. The focus lies on the themes “migration and politics”, “migration and society”, as well as “the experience of migration in words, music and images”.

Summary Book Review Biblical Eschatology, Second Edition :
Download or read book in PDF Biblical Eschatology, Second Edition written by Jonathan Menn and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2018-03-07 with total page 622 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Biblical Eschatology provides what is not found in any other single volume on eschatology: it analyzes all the major eschatological passages (including the Olivet Discourse and the book of Revelation), issues (including the second coming of Christ, the millennium, the rapture, and Antichrist), and positions (including all the major views of the millennium) in a clear, but not superficial, way. The book concludes with a chapter showing how eschatology is relevant for our lives. Biblical Eschatology makes understanding eschatology easier by including chapters on how to interpret prophecy and apocalyptic literature, by showing the history of eschatological thought, and by placing eschatology in the context of the Bible’s overall story line and structure. Clarity and understanding are enhanced by the use of comparative tables and appendices. Subject and Scripture indexes are included. The book interacts with the best of Evangelical and Reformed scholarship, and the extensive bibliography (which includes the web addresses of many online resources) provides an excellent source for the reader’s further study. This is a perfect resource for intelligent Christians, including pastors, students, and teachers, who desire to understand eschatology and to see how it fits together with the rest of the Bible.
