Book Summary:

Appealing to Monster Theory and the ancient Near Eastern motif of "Chaoskampf," Safwat Marzouk argues that the paradoxical character of the category of the monster is what prompts the portrayal of Egypt as a monster in the book of Ezekiel. While on the surface the monster seems to embody utter difference, underlying its otherness there is a disturbing sameness. Though the monster may be defeated and its body dismembered, it is never completely annihilated. Egypt is portrayed as a monster in the book of Ezekiel because Egypt represents the threat of religious assimilation. Although initially the monstrosity of Egypt is constructed because of the shared elements of identity between Egypt and Israel, the prophet flips this imagery of monster in order to embody Egypt as a monstrous Other. In a combat myth, YHWH defeats the monster and dismembers its body. Despite its near annihilation, Egypt, in Ezekiel's rhetoric, is not entirely obliterated. Rather, it is kept at bay, hovering at the periphery, questioning Israel's identity.

Book Summary:

Safwat Marzouk offers a biblical vision for what it means to be an intercultural church, one that fosters just diversity, integrates different cultural articulations of faith and worship, and embodies an alternative to the politics of assimilation and segregation. A church that fosters intercultural identity learns how to embrace and celebrate difference, which in turn enriches its worship and ministry. While the church in North America might see migration as an opportunity to serve God's kingdom by showing hospitality to the migrant and the alien, migration offers the church an opportunity to renew itself by rediscovering the biblical vision of the church as a diverse community. This biblical vision views cultural, linguistic, racial, and ethnic differences as gifts from God that can enrich the church's worship, deepen the sense of fellowship in the church, and broaden the church's witness to God's reconciling mission in the world. Today's church faces the challenge of what it means to be church in the light of the ever-growing diversity of the population. This may entail advocacy work on behalf of the undocumented, asylum seekers, and refugees, but the church also faces the question of how to welcome the stranger, the migrant, and the refugee into the heart of the worshipping community. This may mean changing worship, leadership, or ministry styles to embrace diverse communities in the church's neighborhood. Marzouk surveys numerous biblical texts from the early ancestor stories of Israel to the Prophets, to the Gospels and Acts, the letters of Paul, and Revelation. The stories introduce themes of welcoming strangers, living as aliens, playing host to outsiders, discovering true worship, and seeking common language for expressing faith. Discussion questions are provided to encourage conversation on this complex and important topic.

Book Summary:

Ezekiel 25-32 contains some of the most virulent speeches directed against the neighboring nations of Judah. Assuming the opposing statuses between the nations and Judah, some emphasize that the destruction of the nations in chapters 25-32 means the upcoming salvation of God's people. Presupposing the nations as judged according to a separate standard of morality, others render the judgment executed upon the nations irrelevant to that upon Judah. Are these then the only two readings of Ezekiel's oracles against the nations? In this study, Lydia Lee postulates a third way to perceive the rhetorical roles of the nations in Ezek 25-32. Unravelling the intricate connections between the oracles against the nations and those against Judah, Lee argues that Ezek 25-32 contains a daring message directed not only against the foreign nations, but also against Judah's land, temple, and nation. In the end, Lee places Ezek 25-32 in a broader context, considering how samples of its early reception within the prophetic book affirm or transform the bleak message about the oblique judgment for the house of Judah.

Students of mediation are usually surprised to discover that a Jewish mediation tradition exists and that it was an authentic and integral part of mainstream Judaism until the eighteenth century. Jewish Meditation is a step-by-step introduction to meditation and the Jewish practice of meditation in particular. This practical guide covers such topics as mantra meditation, contemplation, and visualization within a Jewish context. It shows us how to use meditative techniques to enhance prayer using the traditional liturgy—the Amidah and the Shema.

Book Summary:

Have you ever had a thought that there maybe life in other planets? Don't forget that our earth is only 4.7 billion years and much younger than this universe that is inching towards 14 billion years. Do you think that there may be another universe? Do you believe in aliens? What about spaceships and UFO? Perhaps, the UFOs and aliens have been visiting our planet and we don't know about it. Perhaps, some of us knows about the aliens and UFOs but are keeping it to ourselves because we don't want to be laughed at. It could be naïve on our part to think that we are the only life in the universe. Reports of UFO sightings occur from time to time though some sightings science cannot explain. No book has explained more about aliens and UFOs than the holy books. The holy books explained spaceships. The Prophet Ezekiel also told us about these airships. Did you miss the biblical mentions of the spaceships too? The Gods/aliens were not hiding themselves from our forefathers who likened these aliens to God and Satan, good and bad angels, and in some instances as monsters. The book of Enoch explained it all. The book even told us the names of the aliens and explained his flight in the spaceships. Prophet Enoch was not the only one who took a spin in the spaceships. A spaceships was described in a holy book to fly around the earth in one minute. All the above were science and technology. Not Faith. If the aliens moved by means of spaceships/airships,would that make them omnipresent or omniscience? Science and technology- yes but omnipresence--quality of being everywhere at the same instant--is not one of their characteristics. We as humans assigned those characteristics to the "Gods." Some people know that the Earth is 4.6 billion years by evidence through science. Some, also believe the earth is 6000 years by faith. One of the reasons for this work is to help channel some Bible readers and readers of books of other religious doctrines in the direction of logic and reason. The truth is that most readers have no idea how and what to believe, so they believe by faith. These ancient texts were produced by royal scribes and religious leaders in powerful economic and political positions and settings.They wrote to advocate and make legitimate, political or religious ideas and reforms so as to yield desired doctrines and ideologies. There is several illogical thinking when it comes to religion. We know according to religious books that: This/These God(s) created everything. Evil is a subsetof everything. Therefore, God created evil. When it becomes impossible to logically explain any given event, the bible believers resort to various methods to explain away illogical texts. Can religious dogma and its inherent confusion survive in the face of science and logic or is it doomed to the surfacing evidence revealing the workings of nature set in time by the Almighty Universal Creator who is sometimes referred to as Consciousness? Reading through the Bible and critically analyzing and connecting the dots, you too could come to have better understandings for the Bible's seemingly shocking inconsistencies and contradictions. These, among others, helped shape the viewpoint expressed in this book.
