The Ark of Yahweh in Redemptive History is an exegetical and theological study of the Ark of Yahweh throughout the Old Testament. The ark, which appears as the centerpiece of Israelite existence in Old Testament times, is widely understood as the unique symbol of God's special presence. Yet, this monograph is to underline that the ark functioned as a revelatory tool of Divine attributes, although many proposals on the function of the ark in the Old Testament have been presented: fetish-chest, bearer of God's image, a miniature temple, God's throne, footstool, a simple receptacle, a war-palladium, and spatial center of amphictyony. In particular, The Ark of Yahweh in Redemptive History shows that Yahweh led his people to faith using the sacred object in history and that the ark was, in the long run, a disposable object for the people of older covenant in the process of redemptive history.

Jesus made claims about redemptive community throughout his ministry when he called people to extravagant grace. Even in the midst of the oppression of his day, Jesus preached and taught that redemptive community was possible if his followers would simply stop hoarding, hiding, and excluding. What a prophetic word for today in the midst of modern day oppression and fears of scarcity! In this edited volume, in honor of religious education scholars Jack Seymour and Margaret Ann Crain, eight of their PhD advisees--each scholars in their own right--join Seymour and Crain to lay out their vision of redemptive community. Rooted in their own scholarship, each contributor proposes ways in which Jesus' vision of redemptive community can become reality in churches and congregations, and in our larger world. In addition to essays by Jack Seymour and Margaret Ann Crain, scholars contributing to this volume include Dori Grinenko Baker, Reginald Blount, Evelyn L. Parker, Mai-Anh Le Tran, Leah Gunning Francis, Carmichael Crutchfield, Debora B.A. Junker, and Denise Janssen. The foreword by Mary Elizabeth Moore and afterword by Seymour and Crain set the volume in the larger context of the church and academy.

This special and remarkablebook, The Seventh-day Sabbath and its Redemptive Function in God's Everlasting Covenant of Grace by A.M. Simataa addresses topical issues in the Bible quite pertinent to the 21st Century Christianity. The author takes a defensive approach of the gospel and brings to the surface some of the least understood teachings of the Bible. Although written from a Seventh-day Adventist's perspective, people of differing religious background and persuasions will fi nd this book very instructive. If you have been looking for a book that pains takingly discusses the Gospel seriously and biblically this is the book you have been searching for. Some of the topics featured in the book include: The Truth about the Bible Sabbath The Judgment of the Living Heavenly New Jerusalem; The Marriage Supper of the Lamband the Rapture The Remnant Church in the Parables Mr A.M. Simataa teaches at a High School in Windhoek, Namibia. He likes sharing the Gospel with others and spends some of his spare time witnessing to others. The central role of the Seventh-day Sabbath in the Redemption of our race is the least understood topic in the Bible today. Most believers have even dismissed its relevance to today's Christianity. However, the truth is that the Sabbath is at the heart of Christ's work to save human beings in accordance with God's plan. The Sabbath is so central to the work of atonement that Christ is referred to in the Bible as "the Lord of the Sabbath." The issue of the Sabbath will become pertinent as we near the End, and every human being will be required to take a stand in the confl ict involving the Sabbath question. This book will plant your feet on a solid foundation.

Forr And Redemptive Regionalism From The Brazilian Northeast

For the many poor and working-class Northeastern Brazilians who have been displaced from their home region for economic reasons, the music of forró is a redemptive attempt at establishing an immanent relationship to history and community in the diaspora. The redemption explored in this book is multifaceted, including a desire to return home as part of a larger workforce in a sustainable economy, the desire to see the region’s rich culture celebrated throughout Brazil, and to ensure that its traditional legacies are both preserved and further enriched through respectful innovation. The acute perceptiveness of forró musicians in portraying the diasporic experience of Northeastern Brazilians is elaborated in various chapters, including: one chapter focused on lyrical, musical, and collective representations or manifestations of diasporic nostalgia (saudade), another chapter analyzing the lyrico-musical representation of rural workers’ alienation from – and resistance to – life in the urban centers, and a third chapter which contextualizes forró’s descriptions of the experiences of Brazil’s internal migrants, utilizing an array of testimonials and academic studies on the subject of interregional migration to reveal both the wisdom of forró lyricists and some of their blind spots. The study also includes a historical analysis of this Northeastern genre’s transformation from a rhythm called baião that symbolically represented the Northeast as a simple, coherent entity, to forró, a more allegorical representation with a greater appreciation for the class, gender, racial, and generational complexity of the region. The development of the genre, as well as the circulation of theory related to cultural production and identity, are contextualized in a global economy.

Passover is among the most widely observed holidays for American Jews. During this festival of redemption, Jewish families retell the biblical story of Exodus using a ritual book known as a haggadah, often weaving modern tales of oppression through the biblical narrative. References to the Holocaust are some of the most common additions to contemporary haggadot. However, the parallel between ancient and modern oppression, which seems obvious to some, raises troubling questions for many others. Is it possible to find any redemptive meaning in the Nazi genocide? Are we adding value to this unforgivable moment in history? Liora Gubkin critiques commemorations that violate memory by erasing the value of everyday life that was lost and collapse the diversity of responses both during the Shoah and afterward. She recounts oral testimonies from Holocaust survivors, cites references to the holiday in popular American culture, and analyzes examples of actual haggadot. Ultimately, Gubkin concludes that it is possible and important to make a space for Holocaust commemoration, all the time recognizing that haggadot must be constantly revisited and “performed.”

Dancing With God is an exploration of the divine gifts of courage and grace in the face of evil. Moreover, it is a doctrine of God as the source of that courage. Baker-Fletcher presents an understanding of the work of the Trinity with regard to the problem of crucifixion, a metaphor she uses for unnecessary violence. She develops a process of relational, womanist theology that considers the empathetic omnipresence of God in the midst of unnecessary suffering and the healing power of God in movement of the Holy Spirit. She engages the contributions of a diversity of theologians like Paul Tillich, Karl Barth, Gordon Kaufman, John Cobb, Jr., Majorie Suchocki, Charles Hartshorne, Andrew Sung Park, and Katie Cannon in her discussion of the dance of the Trinity in creation, and the problem of sin, evil, and suffering. Through creative works like that of Alice Walker's The Color Purple and journalist Joyce King's account of the James Byrd, Jr. murder in Jasper County, Texas, Baker-Fletcher reveals the healing, encouraging power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of survivors of unnecessary violence.
