What has hermeneutics to do with ecology? What texts, if any, come to mind when you consider what the scriptures might say about environmental ethics? To help readers think critically and clearly about the Bibles relation to modern environmental issues, this volume expands the horizons of biblical interpretation to introduce ecological hermeneutics, moving beyond a simple discussion about Earth and its constituents as topics to a reading of the text from the perspective of Earth. In these groundbreaking essays, sixteen scholars seek ways to identify with Earth as they read and retrieve the role or voice of Earth, a voice previously unnoticed or suppressed within the biblical text and its interpretation. This study enriches eco-theology with eco-exegesis, a radical and timely dialogue between ecology and hermeneutics. The contributors are Vicky Balabanski, Laurie Braaten , Norman Habel, Theodore Hiebert, Cameron Howard, Melissa Tubbs Loya, Hilary Marlow, Susan Miller, Raymond Person, Alice Sinnott, Kristin Swenson, Sigve Tonstad, Peter Trudinger, Marie Turner, Elaine Wainwright, and Arthur Walker-Jones.

This is the third in a series of books exposing the truth behind Mormonism. In this volume, we review doctrines that have been discarded. To early Mormons, Adam was God and blood atonement was a stark reality. These were accepted doctrines which survived for several decades throughout the leadership of several successive prophets. Today, the Church denies they even existed. The origin of the Mormon temple ceremony is established and explained. An analysis of changes over the years shows that the rites now enacted bear no resemblance to the original ceremonies Joseph Smith lifted from late eighteenth century Masonic ritual, claiming they were restored from the time of Solomon. The psychology of a Mormon testimony is explored and explained. Sections of the Doctrine and Covenants are exposed as completely unfulfilled nonsense that Mormons simply cannot see through as long as blind faith precludes rational thinking.

The topic of the millennial kingdom of Christ, though not as crucial as some Bible doctrines, is nevertheless an important teaching that affects many Scripture passages. Nowmillennial Dispensationalism (a new term coined by the author) takes a fresh look at, and gives clear answers to, the millennial controversy that has many students of Bible prophecy confused and/or divided today. This work is the result of much discussion, Bible study, and careful comparison of the various millennial views, with an objective evaluation of each side. In the end, the reader will be left to choose between only two possible views--Premillennialism and Nowmillennialism.

Lost in Translation The Book of Revelation: Two Brides, Two Destinies is a worthy follow-up to its predecessors, Rediscovering the Hebrew Roots of Our Faith and The Book of Revelation through Hebrew Eyes. This is the final in a three-volume series that covers the entire book of Revelation in awe-inspiring detail, expounding and expanding on familiar verses in God s Word that have been misunderstood and misconstrued for many years. Or, in some cases, linking together verses and concepts that have been repeatedly overlooked. In this volume the authors explore the second half of Revelation from the perspective they established so clearly in Volumes 1 and 2 that of a Hebrew God speaking through a Hebrew believer to an audience that was intimately familiar with the Hebrew language, culture, customs, and concepts that form both the literal and the metaphorical foundation for vast portions of Revelation. In the process they answer a multitude of important questions, including the following: Whose Bride are you? Can you change sides or are you stuck forever in a relationship you really don t want? What is the ancient framework by which you can identify most of the players? Who or what is the False Messiah? Who or what is the False Prophet? What is the Second Death? Who will experience it? How does it differ from any other death? These are just some of the questions to which you ll find plausible, sensible, biblically sound answers in this volume. Please join us, right now, for another voyage of discovery unlike anything you ve embarked on before, even if you've already read the first two volumes! About the Authors: Collectively, John Klein and Adam Spears have studied the Scriptures for more than sixty years. Together they have also taught countless hours of biblical courses, on Hebrew foundations, that bring alive the Holy Scriptures. Their motto, If you don't know covenant you can't know Scripture! identifies one of the primary concepts that these two long-term scholars believe underlies the entire Bible, from the first verse in Genesis to the last verse of Revelation. Both authors spend their time studying, writing, teaching, and counseling on full-time schedules. In addition, John is associate leader for House of Covenant, a Messianic congregation in Bend, Oregon, while Adam serves as the congregational leader. Michael Christopher is a writer/editor and a long-term veteran of the publishing industry. He has worked with dozens of authors, both famous and unknown, to produce religious and secular books of many different kinds. But he has never enjoyed any book project as much as this three-volume series, nor has he ever learned as much in the process.

The book of Revelation presents a daunting picture of the destruction of the world, complete with clashing gods, a multiheaded beast, armies of heaven, and the final judgment of mankind. The bizarre conclusion to the New Testament is routinely cited as an example of the early Christian renunciation of the might and values of Rome. But Christopher A. Frilingos contends that Revelation's relationship to its ancient environment was a rather more complex one. In Spectacles of Empire he argues that the public displays of the Roman Empire—the games of the arena, the execution of criminals, the civic veneration of the emperor—offer a plausible context for reading Revelation. Like the spectacles that attracted audiences from one end of the Mediterranean Sea to the other, Revelation shares a preoccupation with matters of spectatorship, domination, and masculinity. Scholars have long noted that in promising a complete reversal of fortune to an oppressed minority, Revelation has provided inspiration to Christians of all kinds, from liberation theologians protesting globalization to the medieval Apostolic Brethren facing death at the stake. But Frilingos approaches the Apocalypse from a different angle, arguing that Revelation was not merely a rejection of the Roman world in favor of a Christian one; rather, its visions of monsters and martyrs were the product of an empire whose subjects were trained to dominate the threatening "other." By comparing images in Revelation to those in other Roman-era literature, such as Greek romances and martyr accounts, Frilingos reveals a society preoccupied with seeing and being seen. At the same time, he shows how Revelation calls attention to both the risk and the allure of taking in a show in a society which emphasized the careful scrutiny of one's friends, enemies, and self. Ancient spectators, Frilingos notes, whether seated in an arena or standing at a distance as Babylon burned, frequently discovered that they themselves had become part of the performance.

There is a scarlet thread woven in the fabric of world history. This thread represents the various forms of the sacrificial traditions carried out and remembered in nearly every culture. One by one, these ubiquitous ceremonies suddenly came to an end. That the concept is barbaric and cruel is not the complete answer for its demise. One revelation in particular will be identified that completely fulfills the traditional and moral necessity of sacrifice. Many scriptural clarifications and additional promises were proclaimed in connection with that momentous sacrifice. The ramifications are monumental for the present and future course of history on Planet Earth. Portions of several religious texts will be referenced and compared. The meaning of Handywork: handiwork is skillful work that is personally done. The Old English spelling, "handywork," comes from one place in the Authorized Version of the Bible. "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handywork" (Psalm 19:1). This term has come to represent the unique creative work that only the one true God can plan, fulfill, and reveal!
