Most revolutions do not begin with people seeking God on their knees. But that is the kind of revolution that the world needs today--an army of people on their knees. An army of believers not seeking their own agendas for their lives, but an army seeking God’s agenda for a lost world. We invite you to join this growing revolution. Join the army that wants to see churches on fire, a fresh groundswell of new churches planted, new missionaries sent, new business owners who want their businesses to bless the world and the Kingdom of God, and the Great Commission completed. Join the thousands and hundreds of thousands who want to pray focused prayers that seek the kingdom of God. Revolution on Our Knees is a simple, but powerful, 30-day prayer devotional guide that provides scriptural thoughts and prayer points that focus on God’s purposes to grow His kingdom. Designed to mobilize entire churches of praying people, Revolution on Our Knees can also be used by individuals and small groups. Let this biblical prayer agenda revolutionize the way you and your church prays.

How the Infosphere is Reshaping Human Reality

Who are we, and how do we relate to each other? Luciano Floridi, one of the leading figures in contemporary philosophy, argues that the explosive developments in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) is changing the answer to these fundamental human questions. As the boundaries between life online and offline break down, and we become seamlessly connected to each other and surrounded by smart, responsive objects, we are all becoming integrated into an "infosphere". Personas we adopt in social media, for example, feed into our 'real' lives so that we begin to live, as Floridi puts in, "onlife". Following those led by Copernicus, Darwin, and Freud, this metaphysical shift represents nothing less than a fourth revolution. "Onlife" defines more and more of our daily activity - the way we shop, work, learn, care for our health, entertain ourselves, conduct our relationships; the way we interact with the worlds of law, finance, and politics; even the way we conduct war. In every department of life, ICTs have become environmental forces which are creating and transforming our realities. How can we ensure that we shall reap their benefits? What are the implicit risks? Are our technologies going to enable and empower us, or constrain us? Floridi argues that we must expand our ecological and ethical approach to cover both natural and man-made realities, putting the 'e' in an environmentalism that can deal successfully with the new challenges posed by our digital technologies and information society.

Sirens of the Western Shore

The Westernesque Femme Fatale, Translation, and Vernacular Style in Modern Japanese Literature

Indra Levy introduces a new archetype in the study of modern Japanese literature: the "Westernesque femme fatale," an alluring figure who is ethnically Japanese but evokes the West in her physical appearance, lifestyle, behavior, and, most important, her use of language. She played conspicuous roles in landmark works of modern Japanese fiction and theater. Levy traces the lineage of the Westernesque femme fatale from her first appearance in the vernacularist fiction of the late 1880s to her development in Naturalist fiction of the mid-1900s and, finally, to her spectacular embodiment by the modern Japanese actress in the early 1910s with the advent of Naturalist theater. In all cases the Westernesque femme fatale both attracts and confounds the self-consciously modern male intellectual through a convention-defying use of language. What does this sirenlike figure reveal about the central concerns of modern Japanese literature? Levy proposes that the Westernesque femme fatale be viewed as the hallmark of an intertextual exoticism that prizes the strange beauty of modern Western writing. By illuminating the exoticist impulses that gave rise to this archetype, Levy offers a new understanding of the relationships between vernacular style and translation, original and imitation, and writing and performance within a cross-cultural context. A seamless blend of narrative, performance, translation, and gender studies, this work will have a profound impact on the critical discourse on this formative period of modern Japanese literature.
