About seventy years after the death of Jesus, John of Patmos sent visionary messages to Christians in seven cities of western Asia Minor. These messages would eventually become part of the New Testament canon, as The Book of Revelation. What was John's message? What was its literary form? Did he write to a persecuted minority or to Christians enjoying the social and material benefits of the Roman Empire? In search of answers to these penetrating questions, Thompson critically examines the language, literature, history, and social setting of the Book of the Apocalypse. Following a discussion of the importance of the genre apocalypse, he closely analyzes the form and structure of the Revelation, its narrative and metaphoric unity, the world created through John's visions, and the social conditions of the empire in which John wrote. He offers an unprecedented interpretation of the role of boundaries in Revelation, a reassessment of the reign of the Emperor Domitian, and a view of tribulation that integrates the literary vision of Revelation with the reality of the lives of ordinary people in a Roman province. Throughout his study, Thompson argues that the language of Revelation joins the ordinary to the extra-ordinary, earth to heaven, and local conditions to supra-human processes.

Topics in the Book of Revelation by William R. Horsley What is the Book of Revelation? Is it a prophecy foretelling the end of the world? Is it a vision of the apocalypse? If Hollywood and a certain subset of preachers are to be believed, John’s final message to Christians is one only of doom and destruction. But what if the real message was one of hope? What if Revelation was less foresight and more history? How would you look at the final book of the Bible if you could read it and feel overjoyed rather than frightened? In Topics in the Book of Revelation, William R. Horsley presents definitive arguments for a reinterpretation of John’s writings. Rather than a warning meant to resound throughout history, Horsley shows that John was writing primarily to the early church and its people using language and symbols that would have been familiar to them. Revelation carries a message of hope to all Christians. Horsley sees lessons to Christians to be encouraged, faithful and victorious to the end. The way is right, and worthy is the Lamb!

“If I may be allowed a personal purpose, it is that through this Revelation, we may feel the presence of God.” —Herb Fitch, San Francisco 1968 Condensed Wisdom of Herb Fitch, Volume 3: Letters to Faithful Witnesses presents an enlightening version of Herb Fitch’s interpretation of the Revelation of St. John. Authors Stephen and Lynn Jay began it in 1991 with Herb’s blessing and his delight as it progressed. Their purpose was to hone the manuscript of more than one thousand pages they had transcribed for Herb in 1988, making its length more palatable for publishers without compromising the integrity or quality of Herb’s original work. The intent was to complete the twenty-five tapes of the series, but the project was delayed when Herb called Steve into the work as an Infinite Way teacher at his 1993 Easter Seminar, ushering in a tidal wave of spiritual activity. At that time, the first nine tapes of Herb’s Revelation series had been condensed into an introduction, as well as the seven letters to the churches. It was a challenging and rewarding undertaking, one worth revisiting today and presented complete as is, powerfully packed to enlighten and inspire. This collection, the third of three volumes, offers a message of Spirit to those who, through the desire to be faithful witnesses, open their faculties of Soul to receive deeply and pour forth lovingly

Cross Tradition Engagement in Philosophy

This book presents a systematic unifying-pluralist account—a "constructive-engagement" account—of how cross-tradition engagement in philosophy is possible. The goal of this "constructive-engagement" account is, by way of reflective criticism, argumentation, and methodological guiding principles, to inquire into how distinct approaches from different philosophical traditions can talk to and learn from each other for the sake of making joint contributions to the contemporary development of philosophy. In Part I of the book, Bo Mou explores a range of fundamental theoretic and methodological issues in cross-tradition philosophical engagement and philosophical interpretation. In Part II, he analyzes several representative case studies that demonstrate how relevant resources in the Western and Chinese philosophical traditions can constructively engage with each other. These studies cover issues in philosophical methodology, metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of language and logic, and ethics. The book’s theoretical and practical approaches expand the vision, coverage, and agenda of doing philosophy comparatively, and promote worldwide joint efforts of cross-tradition philosophical inquiries. Cross-Tradition Engagement in Philosophy will be of interest to graduate students and scholars interested in comparative philosophy and the intersection of Chinese and Western philosophy. It will also appeal to those who are interested in the ways in which cross-tradition philosophical engagement can enhance contemporary philosophical debates in metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of language and logic, and ethics.

The book of Revelation is one of the most intriguing books ever written. It contains many strange imageries. Unfortunately, most writers have given a literal interpretation to these imageries, causing much confusion. Instead of making the book more understandable, for multitudes of people writers have made the book more frightening. Consequently, the overwhelming majority of people don't believe we will ever understand the original intended message of the book of Revelation. This is unfortunate because God WANTS us to understand His message. That is why it exists. Revelation 1:1 says 'God sent and signified'. The greek word for signified (semaino) literally means 'to cause to be specific and clear'. God has something to say to us and He WANTS His message to be specific and clear. This book will accomplish that for you.We use imageries every day, expressions like 'thrown under the bus', 'step up to the plate', or 'smoking gun'. Imagine the confusion that would result if we tried to literalize these expressions in our conversations. The context of our conversation helps us to rightly apply these expressions. That is why this book will help you to understand the book of Revelation. This book begins by scripturally identifying the context of the book, then progresses forward to scripturally unravel the metaphoric meanings of the symbolic imageries. The result is a practical, understandable, relevant message from God pertaining to our day.This book deals specifically with the book sealed with seven seals. It will help you to understand what the seven-sealed book is and what God has to say to us through each seal, again both 'specifically and clearly', more specific and clear than you ever imagined. This book is going to help you to understand more of the book of Revelation than you ever thought possible. I guarantee it!
