Cinderella, having lost her magical powers after she defeated Napoleon, is now asked to do the unimaginable—free him from his exile on the island of Elba. When she resists the call to help, Jeremiah, her husband and former witch hunter, convinces her that the fate of the world rests on Napoleon’s escaping, and she grudgingly goes along. Yet unknown to Cinderella, Phoebe, her teenage daughter, has been flung far into the future and is at the center of a conspiracy that will lead to the destruction of the world. Torn between her grief of losing her magical powers and anger at what she has lost, Cinderella embarks on a desperate journey that takes her through the darkest and hardest challenge she has yet faced. Without her magic, can Cinderella find a way to save the world, or will the evil forces from the future be too much and overcome her?
The present study is made up of three parts. The first one, entitled the notion of sin by Stanislas Lyonnet, starts from the observation that redemption is essentially the destruction of sin. For this reason the treatise on redemption in the New Testament is preceded by an inquiry into the notion of sin, as it derives from the Old Testament, especially from the account of Genesis 3. The second part, also from Stanislas Lyonnet, is devoted to the terminology of redemption in the N.T. The third part, by Leopold Sabourin, is about sacrifice and redemption in the history of St. Paul's formula Christ made sin (2 Cor 5,21). The author examines the most representative testimonies of the ancient and Medieval Greek and Latin writers, and exposes his interpretation of 2 Cor 5, 21, in which the notion of sacrifice for sin appears as a key concept in this formulation.
After discussing the "arts of redemption" and their rivals, and introducing soteriology, the theology of salvation, Patrick Sherry argues that the Christian "Drama of Redemption" has three Acts. The next five chapters discuss the three Acts, namely salvation history, our present human life, and the life to come. In each case, Sherry explains how art and literature can lead to an understanding of what is at stake here. His main concern is with the present life: hence three of those chapters deal with that phase of redemption, one of them specifically with "novels of redemption." The last substantial chapter of the book takes up the general issue of how art and literature contribute to religious understanding: Sherry argues that they may be primary expressions of religious belief, as well as "illustrations," and that as such they may criticise or complement theology, or in turn be open to criticism themselves from that quarter. Finally, he summarises the main theme and briefly discusses some of the particular problems of assessing the arts of redemption.The book's most distinctive feature is the way in which it uses art and literature as a means of religious and theological understanding. It is not a survey of the arts of redemption, though it uses a wide variety of examples, including ancient Greek drama, Flemish and Italian painting, religious music, and 19th -20th century novels. These examples are used as a tool for understanding what is one of the most difficult areas of theology.
The Star of Redemption is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding religion and philosophy in the twentieth century. Fusing philosophy and theology, the book assigns both Judaism and Christianity distinct but equally important roles in the spiritual structure of the world. Franz Rosenzweig finds in both biblical religions approaches to a comprehension of reality. The major themes and motifs of The Star—the birth, life, death, and the immortality of the soul; Eastern philosophies and Jewish mysticism; the relationship between God, world and humanity over time; and revelation as the real biblical miracle of faith and path to redemption—resonate meaningfully.
The law, redemption and freedom in Christ examines Paul's view of the law and the redemption accomplished in Christ, especially with regard to how the latter affects the former, what the latter has for Christians vis-a-vis the former. It studies these from the point of view of two Pauline passages: Gal 3,10-14 and Rom 7,1-6. The thesis has seven chapters: I and VI consider the historical and literary context with theological reflections, chapter VII offers a synthesis and general conclusion. Peter Chidolue Onwuka, 1966, defended his doctoral thesis at Pontifical Gregorian University.
Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 'I Have a Dream' speech has become an icon of American public culture, its imagery and words profoundly influencing the civil rights debate. In The Rhetoric of Redemption Bobbitt applies Kenneth Burke's theory of guilt-purification-redemption in a close, critical analysis of the speech, developing and examining the implications of Burke's redemption drama in contemporary public discourse. He studies the impact of the speech over time, arguing that, while King's speech contains an inspirational vision of national redemption, it does so by omitting the real difficulties of overcoming America's racial divisions.
The papers deal with scientific, mathematical, theological, and philosophical questions, including discussions of such topics as the proper foundation of metaphysics, the form of inference, the nature of love and marriage, and the role of the university in the modern world.
Strong-willed Fannie Hochstetler wants to become a midwife, but the doctor who will be showing her the ropes is Daniel Kauffman, who previously left the community. She reluctantly follows so she can learn enough to go out on her own. Although Daniel doesn't follow his faith, Fannie knows she should use the time with him to be an example of her faith, but that turns out to be much harder than she thought it would be. Each question, snide remark, or scoff pushes her a little further away from him, but when asking for peace and understanding she becomes calm. To her surprise, what God tells Fannie is more than she thought she had to offer. Independent Daniel Kauffman is not thrilled with Fannie either, as they had words in the past about how things should be done and how far things should go without pushing too far against the Amish ways. Their way of leaving all things to God doesn't sit right with Daniel. He was doing just fine without any bishop or deacon standing in his way. If only they could understand that his battle is within. If God has given him the gift to heal, why can't he be in both places without issue? But the guilt he feels for leaving pushes him to spend time in both the hospital and in the community. The push he feels from God and his commitment to the people he was born into create a great division between them which forces Daniel to make a choice.
