Joel (ITC)

Christopher R. Seitz

The concept of the "Day of the LORD" which runs throughout the Minor Prophets as a whole reaches its zenith in Joel and its co-mingling of ecological and military metaphors advances Hosea on the former and antici... read more

Michele Guinness was brought up to observe all the traditions and ritual of her Jewish culture. But in her teens she found something lacking. When she encountered a Christian it raised questions in her own mind, and she turned to the Bible for answers.

Why There Is No Poststructuralism in France

Johannes Angermuller

However in France, where their work originated, such a category has never gained currency; this group of theorists were never perceived as a coherent intellectual group or movement. Outlining the institutional contexts, affinities, and rivalries of, among others, Alth... read more
