A mysterious child with uncanny abilities.A deadly threat to dominant religions. A prey to merciless secret organizations. An unimaginable origin that unfolds within the bowels of Hell. Theon E. Rex is no ordinary boy. Discovered as an infant in a symbol-riddled well near Manor Clos Luc, Leonardo Da Vinci's former residence, he soon manifests extraordinary powers ranging from the stunning to the devastating, attracting the attention of the Vatican and other powerful organizations bent on exploiting or destroying him. Terrified the secret behind his mysterious origins would reduce biblical doctrine to ashes and crush his empire, the Pope himself orders his death.Even Satan has designs on Theon. Hell's fury descends upon him as the Dragon Lord whisks the boy-prodigy to his infernal realm, determined to weaponize him and bring destruction and desolation to the Kingdom of Heaven...and to Earth. Of all the Echoes--restored human souls--roaming Heaven and Hell, Leonardo Da Vinci comes to Theon's aid, helped by Satan's crossbred daughter and other unlikely allies. A frantic race ensues across Hell and into Heaven, in hopes of finding a cure to Theon's explosive curse. But a misguided God swears the boy will not cross Heaven's borders. What they discover about his origins, no one--neither Da Vinci nor even God himself--could have imagined.Main Cast of Characters:* Theon E. Rex, hero and boy prodigy* FBI agent Cameron Rex and wife Sarah, Theon's adoptive parents* Leonardo Da Vinci, famed painter and inventor* Akara, Satan's young estranged daughter* Tholen of the Kalidrone, a race deformed beyond belief, alienated from God* Amadeo Da Verdi, ex-Templar Knight and agent of the Vatican* NASA Director Bill Adams, Mars Exploration program* Cardinal Pierre Nadeau, double agent* Doctor George Lapierre and Maurice Lefoux, members of the Priory of Sion* U.S. President Karl Armstrong* Pope Benvenuto, born Carsten Maximilian Reiniger* Young Nostradamus* King Deus, Lord God* Maitraya, God's Holy Spirit* Jesus Christ* Maria Magdalena* Mary, mother of Jesus* Satan, Dragon Lord* Archangels Michael and Gabriel* Adolph Hitler, former leader of the Third Reich and mass murderer

Salvation on the Small Screen?

24 Hours of Christian Television

Author: Nadia Bolz-Weber

Publisher: CPG

ISBN: 1596271949

Category: Religion

Page: 176

View: 4052

From a seminarian and stand-up comic—an “enlightening and entertaining” look at celebrity televangelists, cash, and couch-potato redemption (AJ Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically). On an average day, the largest religious broadcast channel is a “divine” presence in more than 50 million households. Holding court on the political issues of the day are such figures as Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Pat Robertson, Benny Hinn, and Jesse Duplantis. Yet many people have little concept of what kind of faith happens there—apart from performing miracles and selling books. A casual viewer flipping past the channel is likely to think, “I haven’t the faintest clue what’s going on,” or “That church doesn’t seem like my church at all,” or even, “Wow, so that’s what happened to Kirk Cameron.” To better understand the message of religious television, Lutheran seminarian Nadia Bolz-Weber spent 24 hours immersing herself in the phenomenon with guest viewers including a rabbi, a Unitarian minister, and her eight-year-old daughter. Augmented by a running count of all of the biblical verses used and total cost of various donations solicited and products shilled through the day, the author chronicles this hugely influential part of America’s religious landscape that is unfamiliar to many. And she never changed channels once. The result is “laugh-out-loud, hysterically funny, and also extraordinarily poignant—we need more theology done like this.” (Dr. Douglas Gay, Lecturer in Practical Theology, University of Glasgow, Scotland). “Turn off your TV and read this book. It's enlightening and entertaining and it doesn't emit any radiation whatsoever.” —AJ Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically

The Rescue and Achievement of Refugee Scholars

The Story of Displaced Scholars and Scientists 1933–1952

Author: N. Bentwich

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 9401177481

Category: History

Page: 107

View: 353

This little book has been written at the suggestion of the Society for the Protection of Science and Learning. That body was the successor of the Academic Assistance Council which was formed in 1933 by heads of British Universities and learned Societies to assist scholars and scientists and investigators "who, on grounds of religion, political opinion or race, were unable to carryon their work in their own country". They were, at the time of the formation of the Society, particularly, but not exclusively, refugees from Nazi oppression, and deprived of their academic posts on one of these grounds. But they soon embraced refugees from other tyrannies. The British example was followed by similar efforts in many countries. The National and International effort, initiated in 1933 on behalf of academic freedom, is still far from completed. For the persecution of free thought and research has become an endemic ill of our time, and calls for a continuous activity of the free Universities. The major task, however, of saving for science and scholar ship the victims of Nazi persecution has been accomplished, and most of the academic societies which were formed in the Thirties to take up the challenge have been dissolved. It seems opportune then to place on record this effort of cultural soli darity for the displaced scholars, and the contribution which has been made to the world's intellectual life by those who were rescued.

Flannery O'Connor's Dark Comedies

The Limits of Inference

Author: Carol Shloss

Publisher: LSU Press

ISBN: 0807142476

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 176

View: 5798

In Flannery O'Connor's Dark Comedies, Carol Shloss moves from biographical, thematic, and theological approaches and instead focuses her criticism on the successes and failures of O'Connor as a rhetorician. This valuable study of O'Connor's style uses reader-response theory to dissect the author's use of hyperbole, distortion, allusion, analogy, the dramatization of extreme religious experience, the manipulation of judgment through narrative voice, and direct address to the reader. Schloss aims to return Flannery O'Connor to her readers on fathomable terms, to offer a rhetorical, rather than theological, perspective from which to understand the country preachers, square-jawed farm wives, wise rubes, foolish intellectuals, huckster Bible salesmen, killers, and other "good country people" who populate O'Connor's fiction.

Passing by the Dragon

The Biblical Tales of Flannery O'Connor

Author: J. Ramsey Michaels

Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers

ISBN: 1621895599

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 224

View: 9053

This book attempts a close reading of the fiction of Flannery O'Connor, story by story, with one eye on her use of the Bible, and her view of the Bible in relation to her own work. After introductory chapters on O'Connor's markings in her own Roman Catholic Bible, her book reviews in diocesan newspapers, and her impatience with her wayward readers, Michaels looks first at her two novels, Wise Blood and The Violent Bear It Away, and then at seventeen of her short stories from her two collections, A Good Man Is Hard to Find and Everything That Rises Must Converge. Michaels takes notice of O'Connor's explicit references to the Bible (or Bibles) in her stories, and looks more particularly to the ways in which the stories are driven at least in part by specific biblical texts. Among the themes that emerge are alienation or displacement, what it means to be "good," the relation between body and spirit and between the Old Testament and the New, issues of race and gender, and above all what O'Connor once called "the action of grace in territory held largely by the devil."
