Ted Conkaffey, Ex-Cop und unschuldig unter Verdacht, eine 13-Jährige entführt zu haben, kann seine Vergangenheit nicht loswerden. Dale Bingley, der Vater seines vermeintlichen Opfers, taucht in Teds nordaustralischem Refugium Crimson Lake auf. Er will das Verbrechen an seiner Tochter auf eigene Faust aufklären und rächen. Auch der mächtige Gangster Khaled hat ein Interesse daran, den wahren Täter zu finden und final aus dem Verkehr zu ziehen – eine Lösung, die Ted, der seine Unschuld beweisen will, nicht wirklich helfen würde. Also muss er den Psychopathen zuerst finden, koste es, was es wolle. Währenddessen ist seine Privatdetektiv-Partnerin, die exzentrische, einst wegen Mordes verurteilte Amanda Pharrell, mit einem anderen Fall beschäftigt: dem Doppelmord an zwei Mitarbeitern einer üblen Kneipe, der zunächst wie ein simpler Raubmord aussieht. Amanda tut sich mit Detective Inspector Pip Sweeney zusammen, die ihr erstes Tötungsdelikt zu bearbeiten hat und Amandas Genie dringend braucht. Bald stehen für Amanda und Ted ihr Leben und ihre Existenz auf dem Spiel.

Sin, Redemption and Sacrifice. A Biblical and Patristic Study

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.

Understanding Soteriology Through Art and Literature

Author: Patrick Sherry

Publisher: A&C Black

ISBN: 9780567088918

Category: Religion

Page: 213

View: 3625

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

An Exegetical-theological Study of Galatians 3, 10-14 and Romans 7, 1-6

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.

The Rhetoric of Redemption

Kenneth Burke's Redemption Drama and Martin Luther King, Jr. 's 'I Have a Dream' Speech

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.

From Repentance to Redemption

Jeremiah's Thought in Transition

Author: Jeremiah Unterman

Publisher: A&C Black

ISBN: 9781850751090

Category: Religion

Page: 223

View: 6375

The relationship of repentance to redemption in Jeremiah is a problem compounded of authenticity and redaction. From an intensive analysis of the relevant texts and a review of the secondary literature, Unterman argues that the dominant trend of scholarship is methodologically flawed and biased. The Jeremianic texts dealt with in this study represent concepts and vocabulary which influence or logically precede Ezekiel and II Isaiah, fit the historical background of the late 7th and 6th centuries BCE, and relate to, but are essentially different from, the literature known as Deuteronomistic. Jeremiah's thought on the relationship of repentance to redemption is to be understood from the historical and ideological background of the prophet himself. This thought progressed through three stages: in Jeremiah's early prophecies on redemption human repentance and divine mercy are equal factors; between 597 and 587 repentance plays a secondary role to YHWH's mercy; during the period of the destruction of Jerusalem the prophet's despair at the people's inability to repent results in the elimination of the demand for repentance, so that redemption would now depend solely on God's mercy. Included in this study are excursuses on the prophets Amos, Hosea, Ezekiel and II Isaiah, which help to place Jeremiah's thought in historical perspective.

The wet earth smells of mushroom and loam. I race through the trees. Branches reach for my eyes and tangle my hair. My kirtle rips, but I still run, faster through the woodland, escaping the murderous men who chase behind me with vicious, barking dogs. The men are my enemies and the woodland is my friend. I climb a tree to its tip, to where the branches thin, and I see the dead bird there. Only its mouth is open and it is singing with the voice of my father. I touch the bird, and it flies away. "I saw a bird dead once. I picture my father this way." Twelve-year-old Lily has not seen her father for more than eight months. He was taken from her and her mother one night by the baron's men, forced against his will to leave England and to be part of a colony in the New World. And now Lily and her mother are in danger -- for the baron's men say they no longer have any right to their land. They also face persecution for being followers of Frere Lanther, a man who has been excommunicated by the church for wanting to purge it of its corrupt practices. Their one chance for safety and freedom is to take passage on the next ship out to the New World. Afraid her father is dead, hopeful that he might yet live, Lily and Frere Lanther persuade her mother to flee. The harrowing voyage reveals painful secrets that strip Lily of her innocence. But Lily also makes a friend -- a boy named Ethan, son to none other than the baron himself, who is also onboard. Together Ethan and Lily navigate their way through betrayals and treachery in a strange new land. Separated from the group, lost in the wilderness, and captured by an Indian tribe, Lily must reach deep inside herself and tap into strength she never knew she had if she is to survive. Richly imagined and beautifully written, Redemption is an epic adventure of family, growth, and love from a major new talent.
