Does accepting the doctrine of biblical inspiration necessitate belief in biblical inerrancy? The Bible has always functioned authoritatively in the life of the church, but what exactly should that mean? Must it mean the Bible is without error in all historical details and ethical teachings? What should thoughtful Christians do with texts that propose God is pleased by human sacrifice or that God commanded Israel to commit acts of genocide? What about texts that contain historical errors or predictions that have gone unfulfilled long beyond their expiration dates? In The Human Faces of God, Thom Stark moves beyond notions of inerrancy in order to confront such problematic texts and open up a conversation about new ways they can be used in service of the church and its moral witness today. Readers looking for an academically informed yet accessible discussion of the Bible's thorniest texts will find a thought-provoking and indispensible resource in The Human Faces of God.

The Hebrew bible stole with both hands from Canaanite myth (proof was dug up in Syria in 1928). Biblical scholars agreed to reinter the evidence to maintain the "literal" truth of the Scripture - be it as certain revelation or as dubious historical data. But the Bible is as full of Pagan mythology as a snake's egg is of snake. Here you'll find it cite din full" the sky-gods, world-mountains, war-goddesses, and chaos-dragons -- the hydra-head faces of God.

Ovid's Metamorphoses and the Politics of Fiction

This book offers a novel interpretation of politics and identity in Ovid's epic poem of transformations, the Metamorphoses. Reexamining the emphatically fictional character of the poem, Playing Gods argues that Ovid uses the problem of fiction in the text to redefine the power of poetry in Augustan Rome. The book also provides the fullest account yet of how the poem relates to the range of cultural phenomena that defined and projected Augustan authority, including spectacle, theater, and the visual arts. Andrew Feldherr argues that a key to the political as well as literary power of the Metamorphoses is the way it manipulates its readers' awareness that its stories cannot possibly be true. By continually juxtaposing the imaginary and the real, Ovid shows how a poem made up of fictions can and cannot acquire the authority and presence of other discursive forms. One important way that the poem does this is through narratives that create a "double vision" by casting characters as both mythical figures and enduring presences in the physical landscapes of its readers. This narrative device creates the kind of tensions between identification and distance that Augustan Romans would have felt when experiencing imperial spectacle and other contemporary cultural forms. Full of original interpretations, Playing Gods constructs a model for political readings of fiction that will be useful not only to classicists but to literary theorists and cultural historians in other fields.

In an honest attempt to seek the answers to life's deepest questions, the author probes into how life began. It then progresses to investigate the nature of religions and writes that, because we refuse to accept our mortality, we delude ourselves and we coerce others, with the tyranny of our own beliefs.

FOR NEARLY 150 years, the Review and Herald has been the official church paper of the Seventh-day Adventist people. A paper, The Present Truth, was first printed in August 1849. In 1851 the name was changed to Second Advent Review and Sabbath Herald. Over the decades the church paper has carried a number of names, and as of 2012 it is simply Adventist Review. Our “church paper”actually preceded, by fourteen years, the official organization of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in 1863. From its inception, throughout her life, the messenger of the Lord, Ellen G. White, used the Review and Herald as one of the main avenues of communicating God’s counsels to His remnant people. During that sixty-six year span nearly 2,000 messages by God of direction, reproof, and inspiration were published in the Review and Herald. This present edition has all of her articles, published through 1915, unabridged in four volumes.

The recent rediscovery of the doctrine of the Trinity has left great impact on the thought and life of the Christian Church. With this reinstatement, the Trinity, which was left out for long as an esoteric mystery, has captured the imagination of theologians and elicited remarkable trinitarian formulations from across theological traditions. This contemporary development has forced the church to review its dogma, spirituality, and Christian practices through the lens of this central doctrine of the Christian faith. One of the important and essential upshots of the doctrine has been the reclamation of a theocentric and trinitarian understanding of mission as the missio Dei. In view of the modern renewal of the Trinity and the global expansion of Christianity, this book explores insights and perspectives from the trinitarian thoughts of St. Augustine and the Indian theologian Brahmabandhab Upadhyay that can inform missio Dei theology relevant for the Indian context.

Sooner or later, we all face the questions explored in With or Without God, Life's Mysteries Continue, questions about the purpose of life, human mortality, spirituality, God, and life beyond the grave. The title conveys the author's tentativeness, perhaps humility. There are no postulates here, no truths to be revealed. These are ruminations. What makes these ruminations notable is that they are those of a man who, in his own words, has traversed centuries of human experience in 66 years and, in the process, acquired a unique perspective on life and nature. Mhlaba grew up in Zimbabwe, in what he calls a pre-modern age. He has lived in fear of spooks and ghosts, worshipping ancestral spirits, and was subject to the tyranny of witches and the machinations of unseen forces. He could have easily remained in that life as his forebears had done before him. Fortunately, his parents understood that he and his siblings would live much of their lives in a changed world, and prepared them through education. The book ends with a fascinating look into the future of humankind, taking the reader through uncharted territory and a new sense of awe about the meaning of life and what may lie beyond. Mhlaba went on to earn a Ph.D. and taught physics and mathematics at university level. He now lives in Newton, Massachusetts, with his wife, Nancy. They have four grown children. Mhlaba is currently writing a book on global governance.
