Book Summary:

A collection of essays by several scholars, this book is an important study of the origins of post- and pre-millennialism in English theology. Initially, it is shown how the early Lutherans or reformers of the sixteenth century adopted the traditional Augustinian eschatology, a doctrine concerned with the end of the world or of humankind. It analyses how Luther paved the way for the interpretation of revelation not as heralding an apocalypse, but as an important historical and political event. For many Puritans this meant the collapse of the Papacy, the restoration of the Jews, and the dawn of a period of glory for the Church. This book traces the hopes and fears of Christians presented with the prophesised apocalypse, which was at this time felt to be imminent. It discusses the manner in which dogma was adapted to suit the interpretations of each religious sect, and the impact which historical events such as the thirty years war, exerted on these theologians. This is a clear discussion on the important elements of millennialism, and is particularly interesting set in the context of comparing these deeply religious views with our own modern thoughts upon entering a new millennium.

Because it is a greatly debated issue within the Christian realm, the author desires to persuade the reader of the Bible's consistent unifying theme involving the nation of Israel and the land of Palestine. It focuses greatly on the biblical validition of Jewish people today, and explores events throughout the Bible, especially apocalyptic events, which revolve around the Jewish nation.

Book Summary:

This study demonstrates that with The Holy War, John Bunyan created a literary masterpiece in the tradition of Psychomania by Prudentius and set the standard by which to judge battle allegories. This analysis reveals the roots of Bunyan's genius in both his theological and literary sensibilities, shaped by Luther and Foxe, and his comprehensive understanding of the biblical plot or master story. This work details biblical foundations and literary devices employed by Bunyan which have remained unnoticed in previous studies, while also engaging themes or motifs of importance to him as a writer and thinker.

Book Summary:

Refutes accusations made against Christianity and the Church that they have always been a source of antisemitism. States that hostility toward Jews existed in the ancient world long before Christianity, and its cause was Jewish religious and civic separatism. Contends that the New Testament contains no more recriminations against the Jews than the Bible; the former denies the chosenness of Jews, but it does not depict them as excessive sinners. The enmity toward Jews in the writings of early Christians (e.g. Chrysostom) is accounted for by their endeavors to separate Christianity from Judaism. In the medieval period, antisemitism was expressed by some clerics, but the Church never officially supported it. Luther may be blamed for antisemitism, but Protestantism did not advocate it. The Enlightenment was more hostile toward the Jews than was the Church. Antisemitism in 19th-20th-century Germany was mainly anti-Christian, and Hitler was as much anti-Christian as anti-Jewish. On the other hand, the Muslim roots of antisemitism (beside anti-Zionism) in the contemporary Arab world must not be ignored. Suggests that Christians must regard Jews as no different from other peoples, i.e. they are not immune to criticism. The Church has the right to try to evangelize the Jews, and these efforts must not be dismissed as antisemitism.

Book Summary:

With this volume, Steven T. Katz initiates the provocative argument that the Holocaust is a singular event in human history. Unlike any previous work on the subject, The Holocaust in Historical Context maintains that the Holocaust is the only example of true genocide--a systematic attempt to kill all the members of a group--in history. In a richly documented, subtly argued, and amazingly wide-ranging comparative historical and phenomenological analysis, Katz explores the philosophical and historiographical implications of the uniqueness of the Holocaust. After he establishes the nature of genocide, Katz examines other occasions of mass death to which the Holocaust is regularly compared from slavery in the ancient world to the medieval persecution of heretics, from the depopulation of the New World to the Armenian massacres during World War I, and from the Gulag to Cambodia. In the first of three volumes, Katz, after setting the groundwork for his analysis with four chapters dealing with essential methodological issues, begins his comparative case studies with slavery in the ancient Greek and Roman world, and continues with such subjects as medieval antisemitism, the European witch craze, the medieval wars of religion, the medieval persecution of homosexuals, and the French campaign against Huguenots. Throughout this investigation of pre-modern Jewish and non-Jewish history, Katz looks at the ways in which the Holocaust has precedents and parallels, and in what way it stands alone as a singular, highly distinctive historical event.

Book Summary:

The poems of Henry Vaughan (1622-95), particularly Silex Scintillans, published during the Commonwealth period, are probably the most biblical in English. Philip West's study relates these great works to the wider biblical culture of the 'Godly nation' of the mid-seventeenth century, and reveals the political and devotional styles which underpinned Vaughan's literary achievements.

Book Summary:

No part of the Bible is more controversial than the book of Revelation, or, as it is often called, the Apocalypse. For eighteen hundred years it has given rise to conflicting interpretations, and in the late twentieth century it is as controversial as ever. The Apocalypse has appealed to people from diverse backgrounds. It has attracted the oppressed and the powerful, the poor and the rich. Visionaries, prophetic movements, and social activists have made frequent use of it. Its powerful visions of the millennium, the beasts, Armageddon, the four horsemen, and the New Jerusalem continue to capture people's imagination. In Mysterious Apocalypse, Arthur W. Wainwright surveys the interpretation of the book of Revelation from the second century until the present day. He does not attempt to provide an exhaustive treatment of the subject but gives an account of representative interpretations in both popular religion and academic scholarship. He examines the use of the Apocalypse in political and religious controversy, in art and literature, and in Christian worship. The information he provides demonstrates the nature and extent of the Apocalypse's impact on church and society.
