This is a study on Reformed theological debates during the ´´Long Eighteenth Century´´ in Britain and New England. By ´´Long´´ a period that goes beyond 1700-1799 is in view. This examination begins just before the eighteenth century by looking at the Neonomian-Antinomian debate in the 1690s. This is followed by the Marrow Controversy in Scotland in the eighteenth century. After that, the authors address the ecclesiological debates between George Whitefield and the Erskines. The doctrine of free choice concerning Edwards and his departure from classical Reformed orthodoxy is highlighted next, followed by reflections on the Edwardseans and the atonement. Returning to Britain again, the volume provides a study on hyper-Calvinism, and on eschatological differences among key figures in the eighteenth century . More specific debates in particular Baptist circles are noted, including the battle over Sandemandianism and the Trinitarian battles fought by Andrew Fuller and others. Returning to ecclesiology, a discussion on the subscription controversy in Philadelphia in the early eighteenth century and an analysis of the debate about the nature of ´´revival´´ in New England close this volume.
Two interviews with Yale Professors about the New Pope Francis.In a phone conversation with Sister Janet Ruffing, Professor at Yale University along with an exchange of emails, she commented on the New Pope Francis. As a Roman Catholic Sister, she says, ´´The Sisters, our whole lives, were affected by Vatican II and we are very hopeful...[that the Pope will be] someone who will focus on the Gospel.´´This book draws on case material from her (and another scholar´s) experience with directees and students for many years as well as postmodern understandings of the narrative creating self. 1.

The Divinity School Address was delivered by Emerson to the graduating class of Harvard Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on July 15, 1838. At the time, the Harvard community was strongly Unitarian, and Emerson´s argument for a more transcendental view of God and faith was seen as radical, and touched off a great controversy. Prompted by his life experience, Emerson questioned the miracles of Jesus, argued for moral intuition over religious doctrine, and discussed the failures of historical Christianity. Although Harvard and the Unitarian church rejected his assertions, Emerson is viewed as a leader of the Transcendental movement, and his other literary contributions have had a notable impact on American thought. 1.

The world of Densun has become so corrupt that Heaven has chosen an atheist criminal to protect it. Alex Talos believes in little he cannot see, a view reinforced by the abuse that filled all 16 years of his life. But when he is given a chance at personal redemption - one that he hopes will offset his fugitive status - he takes it, despite not believing in the forces responsible for the offer. Alex views his new title, the Holy Protector of Densun, as nothing more than a gateway to better meals and warmer beds, though new companions attempt to teach him a sense of responsibility. Alex stubbornly clings to his views until a threat emerges that challenges everything he knows about reality. Cover art by John Adkins. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jon Michael.
