The apocalypse is a motif that lies behind many religious beliefs and practices. 'War in Heaven/Heaven on Earth' theorizes the apocalyptic as it has arisen in a variety of religious traditions, from Native American religion to Islam in Northern Nigeria and new terrorist movements. Millennial theory and history are explored from the perspective of social psychology, sociology and post-modern philosophy. The volume is unique in applying an analysis of millennial themes to a comparative study of religion.

Millennialists through the ages have looked forward to the apocalyptic moment that will radically transform society into heaven on earth. They have delivered withering critiques of their own civilizations and promised both the impending annihilation of the forces of evil and the advent of a perfect society. And all their promises have invariably failed. We tend, therefore, to dismiss these prophets of doom and salvation as crackpots and madmen, and not surprisingly historians of our secular era have tended to underestimate their impact on our modern world. Now, Richard Landes offers a lucid and ground-breaking analysis of this widely misunderstood phenomenon. This long-awaited study shows that many events typically regarded as secular--including the French Revolution, Marxism, Bolshevism, Nazism--not only contain key millennialist elements, but follow the apocalyptic curve of enthusiastic launch, disappointment and (often catastrophic) re-entry into "normal time." Indeed, as Landes examines the explicit millennialism behind such recent events as the emergence of Global Jihad since 1979, he challenges the common notion that modern history is largely driven by secular interests. By focusing on ten widely different case studies, none of which come from Judaism or Christianity, he shows that millennialism is not only a cultural universal, but also an extremely adaptive social phenomenon that persists across the modern and post-modern divides. At the same time, he also offers valuable insight into the social and psychological factors that drive such beliefs. Ranging from ancient Egypt to modern-day UFO cults and global Jihad, Heaven on Earth both delivers an eye-opening revisionist argument for the significance of millennialism throughout history and alerts the reader to the alarming spread of these ideologies in our world today.

Much of the literature on the book of Revelation paints a frightening apocalyptic vision of the end times. Michael Battle offers an alternative look at Revelation in this new work, seeing it instead as a hopeful call to bring heaven on earth. Battle explores the problematic imagery found in Revelation before showing how similar problems play out in our contemporary world. Battle sees Revelation as a guide that shows us that we can live out God's call for heaven on earth by living in community with one another, as exhibited through the writings of Martin Luther King Jr., Desmond Tutu, Rowan Williams, and Ubuntu theology. He writes, "I seek to imagine in my particular Christian context how a view of heaven need not lead to culture wars and further excuses for oppressing others. Heaven, as envisioned by John of Patmos, has much greater purpose."

In retrospect, stories learned as children were entertaining but failed as life mentors. We, as well as our children, have failed to retain their principles and in consequence have lost a portion of background history necessary to understanding God’s messages. For instance, why did God give the Law of Moses? Of what purpose were the kings and judges, the flood of Noah’s time? What do the Covenants mean, and why didn’t first-century Jews accept the promised Messiah? Why is Revelation a part of His message, since it is in apocalyptic language, and does it have any meaning for us? These questions are important, as they grant knowledge that provides additional sources of honor from which we are able to praise Him more effectively. They are also the background for the New Covenant under which we live. Without them, we would not have reconciliation or salvation.

Could the Holy Shroud of Turin, the list of previous Catholic Church Popes, history, mathematics, natural scientific phenomena, and our most recent Pope to pass away, His Holiness Pope John Paul II, be tied together to show us a roadmap and landscape of a raging spiritual warfare and possibly the conclusion of this war with the return of the victorious Jesus Christ? They just might. A commentary on the unseen spiritual warfare around us. This narrative is entirely new and unique in that it takes historical events and scientific information and links them together in a way never done before. In fact, it pieces together events that could not have been done until now due to significant linking events occurring in only the last couple of years. This book does not seek to "set dates" for the end of the world, but it does seem likely we are at the threshold of the end of time as we know it. You will not be bored when the big picture comes into view. And Donate to a Good Cause Too Thank you for purchasing There Is Yet Time; War In Heaven, War On Earth.

Ephesians 2:8-10; For by Grace you are saved through faith: and that not of yourselves, for it is a gift of God. Not of works, that no man glory. For we are HIS workmanship, created in Christ Jesus in good works, which God hath prepared that we should walk in them. (Works do not gain us salvation, but as followers of Christ we are expected to take up His work, being good stewards and representatives.) Have a Look at a Few of our Critiques "There Is Yet Time: War in Heaven, War on Earth," written by Cris Cannon, is an intriguing submission which provides the reader with the author´s perspectives and views pertaining to the fate of mankind relative to the basic teachings of Christianity. In alternately instructive and passionate prose, Mr. Cannon conveys with enormous conviction his staunch belief that each day ´ the sun is setting for each and every one of us´ while stressing the vital nature of embracing and adhering to the word of God by accepting Jesus Christ as our savior. Effectively supporting his theories by citing myriad biblical scriptures, the author demonstrates an ability to connect with those who may share his devout faith regarding the issues discussed. For readers who accept the notion of the actual existence of Satan and the evil engendered by this being, the author´s views should strongly resonate. For those who possess a more skeptical or pragmatic philosophy towards Christianity, the work could prove thought provoking and may inspire spirited discussion. Often submissions of this nature portend the imminent end of the world on a specific date through an epic return of Jesus Christ. This work instead takes a much more intellectual approach in terms of reviewing the history and behavior of mankind and what the consequences of the paths most choose for their lives will ultimately deliver in eternity. Presented strictly as a narrative, the text flows at a brisk tempo that should maintain the reader´s interest throughout. Although works of this genre generally are not effective in converting those of a different religious view, this work could be regarded as inte

'Gender and Apocalyptic Desire' exposes the often-hidden links between the struggles of women and the conflict of good versus evil. The essays examine the collisions between feminist and apocalyptic thought, the ways in which apocalyptic belief functions as bodily discipline and cultural practice, and how some currents of apocalyptic desire can enable women's equality. A wide range of issues are examined, from anti-abortion terrorism to the stigmata of Christ and visions of Mary.
