Apocalyptic Good News

Remarkable studies in the New Testament have recovered the fact that the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ, was apocalyptic good news--God´s redemptive action within history. Today, for more and more people, the sheer scope of an evolutionary universe renders life on Earth as utterly insignificant, religion as nothing more than superstition. And now, in the Anthropocene, we on the pale blue dot live in an apocalyptic age in which cataclysmic issue after cataclysmic issue threaten the future of the planet. The faith of the early church was in an apocalyptic cosmic Christ unleashing within history God´s good news of a new creation. Set within the world as we now know it, this gives meaning to the cosmos and life wherever it is found around any star. Screened from view for over a millennium during mission to non-apocalyptic cultures, now is the time for a new paradigm for church, the ´´´´apocalyptic church´´´´ for an apocalyptic age to replace the denominational church. What a difference this makes to faith, worship, and the role of the church in an apocalyptic future. ´´´´It´s time! Dean Drayton argues that it is time to recognize that the Christian faith must express itself through a recovery of an apocalyptic gospel. It is time to come to terms with our place in an ever-expanding universe and the threats posed by the Anthropocene. It is no longer sufficient to fall back on understandings of an Enlightenment-derived self and a denominational Christ.´´´´ --Clive Pearson, United Theological College ´´´´Dean Drayton has written a monumental, extraordinary work. Dean is a geologist, a pastor, a theologian, a leader, a deep thinker, and a good friend. He has written a remarkable book that stands among the best of books. You will discover helpful, hopeful wisdom and insights, compassion and scholarship, common sense and new thought. The book will bless you, your friends and family, and the whole of humanity.´´´´ --Kennon L. Callahan, Theologian, Author, Pastor Dean Drayton is an adjunct research professor of the Public and Contextual Theology Research Unit (PaCT) of Charles Sturt University, Canberra. He is the author of Pilgrim in the Cosmos (1995) and Which Gospel? (2005). He was national president of the Uniting Church in Australia (2003-06). A geophysicist ordained in the ´´´´Death of God´´´´ era, he has been actively involved as a minister of the Uniting Church in the practice and teaching of mission and evangelism.

´´We don’t like bad news, but we need it. We need to know about it in case it’s coming our way.”This delicious, contemptuous, and poignant micro-story is the first in the acclaimed collection, Moral Disorder, from towering author and number one New York Times best seller Margaret Atwood.The bad news arrives in the form of a paper, which Tig carries up the stairs to Nell who is wallowing in bed. A year from now, they won’t remember the details, but for now, the bad news sits between the aging couple as they prepare their breakfast together, and Nell imagines them in Southern France as the barbarians invade Rome on what is a beautiful day, safe and quiet, for now, from the bad news coming their way.A Vintage Shorts Selection. 1.

Ironically, as telecommunications technology-the embodiment of modernity-advances, bringing people in different nations into more direct contact during conflict situations, traditional cultural factors become increasingly important as differing ways of thinking and acting collide. The mass media can be seen as a factor in the creation of international conflict; they also, claim many scholars, are the key to control and resolution of those problems. Whichever side of the coin one chooses to look at-mass communication as cause or cure of conflict-there is no doubt that the news media are no longer peripheral players on the global scene; they are important participants whose organizational patterns of behavior, values, and motivations must be taken into account in understanding national and international conflict. In this volume, a distinguished group of authors explores the variety of ways the news media-newspapers, radio, and television-are involved in conflict situations. Conflicts between the United States and Iran, India and Pakistan, and the United States and China are examined, and national-level studies in Sri Lanka, Iran, Hong Kong, and the United States provide varied contexts in which the authors look at the complex interrelationships among government, news media, and the public in conflict situations.

In a debut that is sure to attract enormous attention, the first novel of The Vault of Heaven takes us to a world of wonders and terrors, where an ancient evil threatens to break out of the bounds that have contained it for generations. When the gods created the world, one created monstrous creatures so powerful that he was doomed to live for eternity in the proscribed Bourne where his most odious creations were to be held, kept from the rest of the world by a magical veil that they could not breach. Millennia passed, and the veil weakened. The people who inhabit the world know little of the terrible danger that lurks in the Bourne. When creatures begin to escape and prey upon isolated villages, news of their predations is treated as mere rumor. But those who stand against evil have seen the signs of the weakening of the veil and know that only drastic measures will prevent a devastating invasion. Tahn Junell is a hunter blissfully unaware of the dark forces that imperil in the world. Then two strangers - an imperious man who wears the sigil of the feared Order of Sheason and a beautiful woman of the legendary Far - come to the Hollows, urging Tahn, his sister, and his two best friends to leave. They will not say why, but the journey upon which they embark will change Tahn´s life...and the world...forever. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Ganim.

This book tells the saga of the Bible without elaboration or interpretation. What readers have said: ´´The whole Bible in under one hundred pages! The whole Bible, including all the major characters and events, both human and divine. . .And those wonderful characters and events follow one upon another, the good, the bad, the ugly, in chronological sequence; or more correctly, flow from one to another so that the story is one continuous whole, never disjointed or broken. The language is exquisite, simple, unpretentious and direct, always a vehicle for capturing the essence of the biblical content. No theological or political axes are ground. 1. Language: English.
