Book Excerpt :

The sun is strange, and the lights in the sky have shut down the world. Roger was on a work trip to Texas when it all happened. Trapped between chaos and the rise of a mysterious, fanatical rancher known as the White Texan, Roger seeks to find his way north, and home to his wife. Except it's even harder than it seems. And he doesn't even know if she's alive. Letters from the Apocalypse is the story of two people separated by the end of the world, and the letters that could bring them together again.

Book Short Summary:

Alberta is well known for its fossil treasures, and author John Acorn is as keen on the long-dead creatures of Alberta as he is on the living. Here, John features 80 of the most noteworthy fossils, fossil locations, and fossil hunters from this most palaeontological of provinces. There's more to the story of "deep Alberta" than dinosaurs, but dinosaur fans will find all their favourite beasts here as well -- from Edmontosaurus to Tyrannosaurus rex, and everything in-between. Then there are the surprises, such as the world's oldest pike, the discovery of a venomous mammal, and the fossils found in such unlikely places as Edmonton and Calgary. Prepared with the collaboration of palaeontologists around Alberta, and the world-renowned Royal Tyrrell Museum, this is a book that is long overdue, and that deserves a place on everyone's bookshelf.

Book Short Summary:

Rather than reading the Catholic Epistles in isolation from each other--understanding their individual historical situations as the single, determinative context for their interpretation--this study argues that a proper understanding of these seven letters must equally attend to their collection and placement within the New Testament canon. Resisting the judgment of much of historical-critical analysis of the New Testament, namely, that the concept of canon actually obscures the meaning of these texts, it is the canonical process by which the texts were composed, redacted, collected, arranged, and fixed in a final canonical form that constitutes a necessary interpretive context for these seven letters. This study argues that through reception history and paratextual and compositional evidence one can discern a collection consciousness within the Catholic Epistles such that they should be read and interpreted as an intentional, discrete canonical sub-collection set within the New Testament. Furthermore, the work argues that such collection consciousness, though not necessarily in the preview of the original authors (being perhaps unforeseen, yet not unintended), is neither anachronistic to the meaning of the letters nor antagonistic to their composition.

Book Short Summary:

For those searching for a way to demystify the often puzzling book of Revelation or for those seeking a splendid pathway into the Apocalypse, this commentary is an extraordinary aid to grasping the central visions-and to being grasped by them. Albrecht Durer's woodcuts are incorporated together with an introduction that describes both the Seer of Patmos and the artist of Nuremberg and gives a very brief overview of various ways of reading these texts (fundamentalist, mainline, liberation). It is followed by a commentary on the book of Revelation accompanied by and keyed to the woodcuts.

Book Short Summary:

No book of the Bible evokes as much controversy as the book of Revelation. Its images conjure fear and dread for most readers, states Laurin Wenig. In this thought-provoking book he offers readers an informed, accurate and pastoral background for understanding the book of Revelation, whether one approaches it solo or in a group.So often, passages and images from the Book of Revelation inspire fear and dread in most readers. To counter this the author uses contemporary Catholic exegesis to help us understand the worldview of early believers and places the message of the Book of Revelation in the context in which it was written: for the edification of readers, not to frighten them. Modern readers will discover the Book of Revelation in the context of faith and hope, not destruction.Points of interest:--for personal reading and reflection.--for parish study groups. --contains charts, maps and reflection questions.

Book Short Summary:

A new cookbook/survival guide/love letter to Montreal for these apocalyptic times, from the James Beard Award–nominated culinary adventurists and proprietors of the beloved restaurant, Joe Beef. “The first Joe Beef cookbook changed forever what a cookbook could be. Anything that came after had to take it into account. Now, with this latest and even more magnificent beast, the rogue princes of Canadian cuisine and hospitality show us the way out of the numbing, post-apocalyptic restaurant Hell of pretentiousness and mediocrity that threatens to engulf us all. It makes us believe that the future is shiny, bright, beautiful, delicious—and probably Québécois. This book will change your life.” —Anthony Bourdain It’s the end of the world as we know it. Or not. Either way, you want Joe Beef: Surviving the Apocalypse in your bunker and/or kitchen. In their much-loved first cookbook, Frédéric Morin, David McMillan, and Meredith Erickson introduced readers to the art of living the Joe Beef way. Now, they’re back with another deeply personal, refreshingly unpretentious collection of more than 150 new recipes, some taken directly from the menus of Fred and Dave’s acclaimed Montreal restaurants, others from summers spent on Laurentian lakes and Sunday dinners at home. Think Watercress Soup with Trout Quenelles, Artichokes Bravas, and seasonal variations on Pot-au-Feu—alongside Smoked Meat Croquettes, a Tater Tot Galette, and Squash Sticky Buns. Also included are instructions for making your own soap and cough drops, not to mention an epic 16-page fold-out gatefold with recipes and guidance for stocking a cellar with apocalyptic essentials (Canned Bread, Pickled Pork Butt, and Smoked Apple Cider Vinegar) for throwing the most sought-after in-bunker dinner party Filled with recipes, reflections, and ramblings, in this book you’ll find chapters devoted to the Québécois tradition of celebrating Christmas in July, the magic of public television, and Fred and Dave’s unique take on barbecue (Burnt-End Bourguignon, Cassoulet Rapide), as well as ruminations on natural wine and gluten-free cooking, and advice on how children should behave at dinner. Whether you’re holing up for a zombie holocaust or just cooking at home, Joe Beef is a book about doing it yourself, about making it on your own, and about living—or at least surviving—in style.

Book Short Summary:

The Revelation to John by Stephen Smalley is a magisterial interpretation of John's Apocalypse as a grand drama, which can only be properly understood in light of John's Gospel and letters and in the context of the Johannine community.

Working directly from the Greek text, Smalley offers a masterful analysis of the critical and literary dimensions of the Apocalypse for students and scholars alike. Contents include an in-depth, critical analysis of the Greek text of Revelation a wealth of scholarly interaction with other commentaries and interpretations of Revelation a canonical assessment of Revelation in light of other Johannine texts a historical understanding of Revelation in the context of the Johannine community an interpretation of Revelation as cosmic drama Here is a fresh contribution to the scholarly study of this captivating but often perplexing book of the Bible. Smalley demonstrates that the Apocalypse speaks directly to any situation in any age and offers a portrait of God's loving justice that is relevant to our own society.

Book Short Summary:

Many say Tess is the fifth horseman of the apocalypse. The weapons she uses does not leave the pain of a bullet, bow, or sword; it leaves pain of a different kind. She leaves misery in the lives of her prey. In her arsenal she carries strife, discord, conflict, confusion, slander, and insults. She feasts on the chaos and disorder she causes. She thrives on the misfortune of others. How do you know Tess is about to do something wretched and wicked? It's when she gets "that" smile across her face like a big cat with a mouse under each paw. A man in her neighborhood made the statement, "Ole Tess is so bold slinging gossip you would think she received a paycheck from Satan himself!" Tess is a hunter of any information to condemn another. It's hard to believe she's in church every Sunday. She'll fight in the church parking lot. Her friends will fight over a $3 chicken. Have you ever seen chicken bone wind chimes made by a witch? Tess has. Have you ever read a letter from Lucifer? Tess has. Have you ever been to a yard sale in hell? Tess has. Tess stays busy. She might be screaming at the preacher or spreading rumors about a deacon of the church. She spends hours on the phone repeating gossip and lies like a satanic secretary. Being Tess is hard work! Being Tess is exhausting!

Book Short Summary:

The Apocalypse! A code book of future events awaiting deciphering? Or a picture book of current events? Is there a global tyrant who will be known as the Antichrist? Who, or what, is the Beast? The False Prophet? Who are the 144,000? What is Babylon and who is the Prostitute who seduces the world? Understanding the Book of Revelation need not be daunting. You don't have to be theological scholar to understand it. After all, John wrote it for the common man. Yet, the key to understanding lies in the Old Testament foreshadowing and types preceding it. Nowhere is the phrase "The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed, and the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed" more true. And, once you understand it, and take a look at the world today, the more you might recognize that the Apocalypse is now!

Book Short Summary:

In this book James Kallas analyzes the four most popular ways in which Christians have dealt with the book of Revelation. He agrees in part with those who espouse the “end of history” view, conceding that the epistle is futuristic in its confession of the hope of Christ’s return, but denying that it is only a discussion of the last days of the world. He repudiates as unscriptural and blasphemous the “all of history” view which uses the book to calculate specific timetables of human events. Underscoring the timeless character of God’s promises to his suffering people, a premise of the “above history” view, Kallas emphasizes that the Word is addressed to all men of all times. He fully confirms the “in that history” view which stressed that Revelation must first be understood in terms of its original readers—the Christians of Asia Minor—and its historical background. Documenting his conclusions with biblical and historical examples, Kallas reviews the origins and style of apocalyptic writing. He explains that the theme of such literature, the conflict between God and Satan on a massive scale, was produced by the despair of God’s people in troubled times. He discusses the immediate purpose of Revelation, describing its symbolic language as a camouflaged message of hope from an imprisoned apostle to Christians suffering severe persecution at the hands of Rome. Only then does he carefully evaluate John’s message for Christians today.

Book Short Summary:

The book of Revelation continues to baffle and confound present-day readers. Its strange imagery and the bewildering number of interpretations of the book have left most readers paralyzed with fear. What is needed is a book that introduces the reader to the most important keys to keep in mind when interpreting the last book of the Bible. This book provides just that: it offers, explains, and illustrates five of the most crucial keys for unlocking the message of the Apocalypse. These keys grow directly out of the kind of book Revelation is and reads it as the word of God for the church. It leads the reader to take Revelation seriously as a message first addressed to seven historical churches in the first century, before reading it as the word of God for today. These five keys can instill greater confidence in understanding the book that has always been out of the reach of most readers.

Book Short Summary:

Christ’s letters to the seven churches still resonate today. Like those ancient churches, most churches today lie somewhere on the continuum between flourishing and withering, between faithfulness and faithlessness, between comfort and persecution. Using seven key themes, John Stott illustrates the timeless relevance of Christ’s exhortations and warnings to the universal church, while pointing to Christ, the Lamb turned Shepherd, who knows the unique opportunities and challenges that face each church. This is a helpful guide for preachers looking to feed their flock with this often visited passage from John’s vision of the apocalypse.

Book Short Summary:

A letter, from Pope Urban, is sent to Anne Mercer, Sicari Ductus of the Templar Nuns, prophesying the second coming, but before this great event, Armageddon must occur. Anne is also told that the Lord has unleashed his Mighty Hunter to cleanse the earth in preparation. The Hunter will be born as man and will precede Christ’s return. The task is placed upon her and her Templar Nuns to find and guide the Hunter before anyone else does. She sends out her assassins to search the world for signs. She finds him and names him Mark Baal. She and her order are forced to do unspeakable acts to protect him and the rest of humanity. Saint Michael, the archangel and the Lord’s commander, has also sent his messengers to find the Hunter, but his purposes clash with the Templars. He wishes to use the Hunter in the greater battle between heaven and hell regardless of the damage it does to humanity. Anne is forced into hiding with the child, but she knows it will only be a matter of time before they are found. Saint Michael finds them on Baal’s 30th birthday and the Archangel attempts to undo Anne’s training, searching for ways to release the Hunter’s burning fire from within and begin Apocalypse. Saint Michael and the Templars are each consumed by their own agendas and fail to realize that Baal has his own vision. The nuclear rapture signals the beginning of the Apocalypse, and few understand that this is all part of the Baal divine plan. Baal is forced into a deadly strategy as he attempts to outwit the Templars and Saint Michael in the war against Lucifer. None fully understand his abilities and they soon realize that he is beyond their control. The Templars have one last hope: Lucia, a nun chosen from birth to fall in love with Baal. Will her love be enough to stay his hand from destroying the world and to free humanity from the shadow of Lucifer?

Book Short Summary:

In late medieval and early modern Europe, textual and visual records of disaster and mass death allow us to encounter the intense emotions generated through the religious, providential and apocalyptic frameworks that provided these events with meaning. This collection brings together historians, art historians, and literary specialists in a cross-disciplinary collection shaped by new developments in the history of emotions. It offers a rich range of analytical frameworks and case studies, from the emotional language of divine providence to individual and communal experiences of disaster. Geographically wide-ranging, the collection also analyses many different sorts of media: from letters and diaries to broadsheets and paintings. Through these and other historical records, the contributors examine how communities and individuals experienced, responded to, recorded and managed the emotional dynamics and trauma created by dramatic events like massacres, floods, fires, earthquakes and plagues.

Book Short Summary:

The Book of Revelation presents the reader with a frightening narrative world in which the people of God are tormented, threatened, and sometimes killed by various agents of Satan. Scholars have traditionally thought that it was written in order to encourage believers to stand fast in the face of the Roman persecution of the early Church. More recently, however, it has been argued that no such crisis existed at the time the book was written. Here Paul Duff offers a different viewpoint on the origin of the Book of Revelation, resulting in a work which substantially advances the implication of the current consensus and sheds new light on this influential yet enigmatic text.

Book Short Summary:

The attack on the World Trade Center in 2001, followed by similarly dreadful acts of terror, prompted a new interest in the field of the apocalyptic. There is a steady output of literature on the subject (also referred to as “the End Times.) This book analyzes this continuously published literature and opens up a new perspective on these views of the apocalypse. The thirteen essays in this volume focus on the dimensions, consequences and transformations of Apocalypticism. The authors explore the everyday relevance of the apocalyptic in contemporary society, culture, and politics, side by side with the various histories of apocalyptic ideas and movements. In particular, they seek to better understand the ways in which perceptions of the apocalypse diverge in the American, European, and Arab worlds. Leading experts in the field re-evaluate some of the traditional views on the apocalypse in light of recent political and cultural events, and, go beyond empirical facts to reconsider the potential of the apocalyptic. This last point is the focal point of the book.

Book Short Summary:

Stephen Pattemore examines passages within Revelation 4:1–22:21 that depict the people of God as actors in the apocalyptic drama and infers what impact these passages would have had on the self-understanding and behaviour of the original audience of the work. He uses Relevance Theory, a development in the linguistic field of pragmatics, to help understand the text against the background of allusion to other texts. Three important images are traced. The picture of the souls under the altar (6:9–11) is found to govern much of the direction of the text with its call to faithful witness and willingness for martyrdom. Even the militant image of a messianic army (7:1–8, 14:1–5) urges the audience in precisely the same direction. Both images combine in the final image of the bride, the culmination of challenge and hope traced briefly in the New Jerusalem visions.

After saving the world and stopping the apocalypse, Callie and Luke are looking forward to a quiet, romantic weekend together. When you’re human and dating the Prince of Hell, quiet moments are hard to come by.

If they can prove it’s possible to redeem a soul, Lucifer will allow the two of them to make some changes in Hell. But this wayward soul, Sean, doesn’t have any interest in being redeemed. Instead, now that he’s back on Earth, he’s decided to take a leaf out of Callie and Luke’s book and wants to find the Holy Grail. Now Callie, Luke, and their friends—and enemies—must race Sean around the globe on a Grail quest and bring peace between Heaven and Hell before they can finally (maybe) get around to that date.

Book Short Summary:

In early Christianity, many people were inspired to write gospels, treatises, letters, and stories celebrating the new faith, but not all of these writings are found in the New Testament. One such story from an unknown author is the Coptic, gnostic Apocalypse of Paul, a tale of the apostle Paul’s ascent to the heavens that was lost for millennia and rediscovered at Nag Hammadi in 1945. In Flora Tells a Story, Michael Kaler discusses the Apocalypse of Paul and how it was shaped by its literary environment. The book takes a behind the scenes look at early Christian literary production, analyzing the ways in which various literary traditions—such as apocalyptic writings, gnostic thought, and understandings of Paul—influenced the author of the Apocalypse of Paul and helped to shape the text. It also includes a new annotated English translation of the Apocalypse of Paul and a fictional account of how it might have come to be written. This work is the most in-depth study of the Apocalypse of Paul to date and the only full-length discussion of it in English. It provides a detailed but accessible account of the literary environment in which its author worked and integrates this little-known work into the broader stream of early Christian writings. This book will be of interest to specialists in Nag Hammadi and gnostic studies and early Christian literature, but will also appeal to the general reader interested in Christianity, mysticism, and gnosticism.

Book Short Summary:

The essays in this book challenge prevailing views on the way in which apocalyptic concerns contributed to larger processes of social change at the first millennium. Several basic questions unify the essays: What chronological and theological assumptions underlay apocalyptic and millennial speculations around the Year 1000? How broadly disseminated were those speculations? Can we speak of a mentality of apocalyptic hopes and anxieties on the eve of the millennium? If so, how did authorities respond to or even contribute to the formation of this mentality? What were the social ramifications of apocalyptic hopes and anxieties, and of any efforts to suppress or redirect the more radical impulses that bred them? How did contemporaries conceptualize and then historicize the passing of the millennial date of 1000? Including the work of British, French, German, Dutch, and American scholars, this book will be the definitive resource on this fascinating topic, and should at the same time provoke new interest in and debate on the nature and causes of social change in early medieval Europe.

Book Short Summary:

How did ancient scribes interpret their own reality by means of scriptural exegesis? The essays in this volume explore this question from various perspectives by examining the earliest known exegetical texts of Jewish origin, namely, the exegetical texts from the Qumran library. Scholars have debated the precise nature of the exegetical techniques used in the Qumran texts. To bring clarity to the discussion, this book analyzes the phenomenon of reading the present in the Qumran library and asks how far comparable phenomena can be observed in authoritative literature in ancient Israel and Judah, in the textual tradition of the Hebrew and Greek Bible, in ancient Judaism, and in early Christian literature. --From publisher's description.

Book Short Summary:

Jacques B. Doukhan, an Adventist scholar of Jewish heritage, mines the Old Testament to uncover new meaning in the battle of Armageddon and the millennium. He ties the symbolism of the book to the sanctuary service of ancient Israel, showing how the seven sections of the book correspond to the seven feasts of Judaism. He argues that the prophecies of Revelation foretell the eventual discrediting of secularism (Egypt), the resurgence of conservative religion (Babylon), and a final coalition of the two movements in the climactic events before the second coming of Christ to defeat sin and save His people.

Book Short Summary:

This three-part study covers the history of interpretation, theological foundations, and exegesis. Copious illustrations from the author's worldwide travels enhance discussion of Rome's emperors, empire, and ideology as the premier horizon for understanding John's immediate context and meaning. Distinctive contributions include Stevens's effort to re-canonize Revelation by insisting on gospel concord, methodically interpreting all of Revelation through the lens of the seven churches and showing how Revelation's imagery consistently relates more to the incarnation than the Parousia. Stevens bypasses traditional millennial options to argue that Revelation is passion-millennial--the passion of Jesus predicates the passion of the church. Under Stevens's hands, Revelation becomes eminently sensible to the original audience and powerfully pertinent for today's church.
