This book provides a new rationale for “religious criticism” in American society. First, Dean shows why today’s academic intellectuals are relatively indifferent to questions of meaning in America, pointing to the loss of American “exceptionalism,” the professionalization of the academy, and the rise of post-structural criticism. He then shows how intellectuals may reclaim a prophetic role by offering a new theory of the nature of religious thought. Tracing this theory to a twentieth-century emphasis on conventions, Dean provides a way to understand how imaginative social constructions can become active historical conventions, with real historical force. He suggests that the sacred itself begins as an imaginative construct and becomes a convention, thus working as an active, “living” force in history. Finally, Dean argues that religious critics must now reclaim a responsibility for shaping their society’s sacred conventions.

'The Spirit and the Bride say, Come ' is a warning to the Church to prepare for the imminent return of Jesus Christ. The author exhorts the Church to wake up from its apathy and compromise with the world and to grow in holiness and maturity; to rise up in the power of the Holy Spirit to pray in the End Time harvest and to fulfil the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations. The special place of Israel in Bible prophecy, the relationship between the Jewish and Gentile Church are explored and the need for them to come together as 'one new man.' The book takes the form of a study guide, with questions at the end of each chapter for individual and group activities.

DESIGNED FOR MORE calls every Christian to consider how, through collective movement, they can bring about Christ's daring vision for unity in the Church to impact the world like never before. Our world is divided and fragmented. Even among followers of Christ, God's great story of reconciliation has been crippled because the messengers of that story are unreconciled. But God designed us for so much more. Thankfully, He has hidden incredible lessons in nature to help solve complex human problems. DESIGNED FOR MORE draws groundbreaking implications for how to achieve unity and collective movement through new research on a jaw-dropping phenomenon of flocking starlings known as a murmuration. This marvel is one of nature's most spectacular sights: Imagine hundreds of thousands of birds in motion, caressing the sky like a brush on canvas. It is a beautiful madness that is completely ordered. Join authors Lucas Ramirez and Mike DeVito as they unveil the power of the murmuration principles in order to inspire unity in individuals and the Church as a whole. Birds first taught us to fly, and now they will teach us to unify!
