♥ Book Title : A History of Medieval Christianity
☯ Full Synopsis : "This volume, a general history of the church in the Middle Ages, pays close attention to the spiritual, intellectual, and institutional aspects of medieval Christianity. From its beginnings, the church has existed in a state of tension between two forces: the spirit of order and the spirit of prophecy. The spirit of order attempts to reform humanity and human institutions; the spirit of prophecy attempts to transform them into the world of God. This tension created a balance within the church that kept it from forgetting the nature of basic religious experience while continuing to remain sensitive to the needs of society."Article| Jeffrey Burton Russell| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Prophecy in Order
☯ Full Synopsis : "The world is changing and what does it mean? Does the Bible tell us what will happen next? Is there any truth to what the Bible says? As a Christian, should I be concerned with things to come? Pastor Page's goal is to give a Biblical, chronological understanding of prophecy, the ability to apply it to our everyday life so that we can share the Truth with lost sinners around us. If it is your desire to learn what has happened, what is happening and what will be, there is no better way than to put "Prophecy in Order." Dr. John Page grew up in a pastor's home, got married, spent eight years in the U.S. Army, then God called him to full time ministry. He was Youth Director of Elm Grove Baptist Church, Bonner Springs, KS for four years; Pastored First Baptist Church, Hayden, CO four years; and in March 2002 God led him to Cheyenne, WY. He completed his Bachelors and Masters degrees with Patrioit University. May of 2008 he completed his Doctorate of Philosophy in Bible and Theology from Louisiansa Baptist University. This book is a result of over five years of studying, research, and preaching of God's Word. Dr. Page is Pastor of Cheyenne Baptist Temple, Cheyenne, Wyoming where he and his wife, Tina, preside and have three children."Article| John E. Page| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Prophecy
☯ Full Synopsis : "More than any other topic, prophecy represents the point at which the Divine meets the human, the Absolute meets the relative. How can a human being attain the Word of God? In what manner does God, when conceived as eternal and transcendent, address corporeal, transitory creatures? What happens to God's divine Truth when it is beheld by minds limited in their power to apprehend, and influenced by the intellectual currents of their time and place? How were these issues viewed by the great Jewish philosophers of the past, who took the divine communication and all it entails seriously, while at the same time desired to understand it as much as humanly possible in the course of dealing with a myriad of other issues that occupied their attention? This book offers an in-depth study of prophecy in the thought of seven of the leading medieval Jewish philosophers: R. Saadiah Gaon, R. Judah Halevi, Maimonides, Gersonides, R. Hasdai Crescas, R. Joseph Albo and Baruch Spinoza. It attempts to capture the `original voice' of these thinkers by looking at the intellectual milieus in which they developed their philosophies, and by carefully analyzing their views in their textual contexts. It also deals with the relation between the earlier approaches and the later ones. Overall, this book presents a significant model for narrating the history of an idea."Article| Howard Kreisel| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Devil, Heresy and Witchcraft in the Middle Ages
☯ Full Synopsis : "The study of heresy and heterodoxy and of belief in magic, witchcraft and the devil has in the past 25 years made significant advances in our understanding of art and iconography, ideas, mentality and belief, and ordinary life and popular imagination in the patristic and medieval periods. At the forefront of research into this aspect of medieval intellectual history has been Jeffrey B. Russell, whose numerous books and articles have opened important new paths in the field. To mark his retirement 17 established and emerging scholars from Europe and North America - historians of art, the church, religions, and ideas - have contributed papers on the many areas which Russell has influenced. Topics dealt with include elves, the Christians apocrypha, mysticism, sexuality, heresies and heresiologies, apocalyptic tracts, astrology, hell, and other Christian encounters with non-believers. These essays are offered as tribute to the deep impact that Russel has had on medieval studies. Contributors include: Alan Bernstein, Richard Emmerson, Alberto Ferreiro, Neil Forsyth, Abraham Friessen, Karen Jolly, Henry Ansgar Kelly, Richard Kieckhefer, Beverly M. Kienzle, Garry Macy, Bernard McGinn, Edward Peters, Cheryl Rigs, Larry J. Simon, Laura Smoller, Catherine B. Tkacz, and John Tolan."Article| Alberto Ferreiro| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Piecing Together Bible Prophecy
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Rubiks Cube of Bible Prophecy is the first volume in a series entitled Piecing Together Bible Prophecy. The series is intended to ultimately provide the reader with a fairly thorough panorama of Bible prophecy that will serve as a scripturally sound summary of this most intriguing and important topic. Although the subject is unavoidably sensational, this series will attempt to steer clear of over-sensationalizing the subject. It will also attempt to present the reader with a different take on Bible prophecy than the traditional and popular theories of our day. This first volume lays the foundation for all that will follow by familiarizing the reader with the fundamentals of Bible prophecy. It asks and answers such important questions as: (1) Why should we study Bible prophecy? (2) How should we interpret Bible prophecy? (3) How did we end up with so many convoluted and contradictory schools of thought? and (4) How should we define the prominent terms employed today in the study of this most pertinent topic?"Article| Don Walton| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Dreamers and voyagers, the boy and girl in this little story are on a journey from where they are to where they can be. In this ageless quest, they are beckoned by the glimmer of their dreams as they behold the light that surrounds and suffuses all that is. They are tempted to lose heart, though, because of the darkness that can steal quietly into their lives, but which can never completely overpower the enduring and triumphant light."Article| Thomas C.

♥ Book Title : Prophecy and People in Renaissance Italy
☯ Full Synopsis : "In the midst of the religious ferment, foreign invasions, and internal political strife that beset Italy before the full effects of the Counter-Reformation, the powerful and humble alike turned to popular prophecy for guidance and solace. Ottavia Niccoli examines here the forms of these prophecies--including interpretations of natural disasters, abnormal births, floods, and planetary conjunctions--and gives examples of how they were transmitted from the lower classes to the elite through street singers, apocalyptic preachers, astrologers, and printers. By tracing the ongoing revision of the prophecies, Niccoli reveals them as an indication of how various levels of society viewed events of the time, as a form of propaganda for such causes as anti-Lutheranism, and as a reflection of the interaction between "high" and "low" culture. Based on popular leaflets, diaries, civic chronicles, and iconographic sources, this book explores the expression of a culture in which nature, religion, and politics formed a unified system with a uniform code of interpretation. It connects the decline of prophecy in Italy with the end of the Italian wars and the beginning of the Counter-Reformation, when popular preaching was banned and charismatic religion discouraged."Article| Ottavia Niccoli| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "This text is designed to serve as a primary source reader. It addresses medieval Christendom in the context of world history. It combines the traditional approach (the medieval Christian tradition found in the church hierarchy and theological development) with the newer approach to cultural diversity - diversity within European Christianity (women mystics, heretics, and popular religion), and diversity without, in a world context (non-European Christianity and relations with Islam, Judaism, and Buddhism)."Article| Karen Louise Jolly| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Heinrich Bullinger on Prophecy and the Prophetic Office (1523–1538)
☯ Full Synopsis : "It has often been noted that the Protestant Reformation of the early sixteenth century witnessed a revived interest in the scriptural notions of prophets and prophecy. Drawing from both late medieval apocalyptic expectations of the immanent end of the world and from a humanist revival of biblical studies, the prophet appeared to many as a suitable role model for the Protestant preacher. A prominent proponent of this prophetic model was the Swiss theologian and church leader Heinrich Bullinger (1504–1575). This study by Daniël Timmerman presents the first in-depth investigation of Bullinger’s concept of prophecy and his understanding of the prophetic office. It also engages with the history of the Zurich institute for the study of the Scriptures, which has become widely known as the »Prophezei«."Article| Daniël Timmerman| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Christ In Type and Prophecy: Volumes 1 & 2
☯ Full Synopsis : "When St. Luke tells us (Acts 11:26) that “at Antioch the disciples were first named Christians,” he implies that they were Christians before they bore the name. If Christian means a believer in Christ, all that have ever believed in the Messias—the Hebrew equivalent for Christ—have been Christians. And since “there is no other name under heaven given to men whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12), all that have been saved from Adam to Noe, from Noe to Abraham, from Abraham to Moses, from Moses to Jesus Christ, and from Jesus Christ to our own day, have been Christians, or believers in the Messias.
