Revelation's Hymns examines the hymnic pericopes in Revelation in light of the cosmic conflict theme. It considers this theme as integral to the development of Revelation's plot. Recognizing that critical studies give interpretative primacy to the political realities that existed at the time of Revelation's composition, Grabiner responds to the need for an examination of the storyline from the perspective of issues that are of narrative importance. Grabiner argues that the cosmic conflict is at the centre of the book's concerns, and attempts to determine the function of the hymns with respect to this. Previous examinations of the hymns have considered them as a response and/or parody to Roman liturgy, examples of God's unquestioned sovereignty, or expressions of thematic overtones found throughout the book. While these approaches make a contribution to a greater understanding of the hymns, the relation to the ever-present conflict theme has not been explored. This study allows the hymnic sections to engage with the larger narrative issue as to who is truly the rightful sovereign of the universe.

Following his acclaimed Guide Through Balthasar's Aesthetics, Aidan Nichols summarizes and illuminates the five volume series Theo-Drama, which develops the heart of Balthasar's theological theory - his exploration of the Good and of the dramatic interplay of finite and infinite freedom. Theo-Drama builds upon the earlier achievement of The Glory of the Lord and transcends it, opening up new horizons for theological and cultural reflection in the twenty-first century. Aidan Nichols' succinct commentary enables the reader to grasp the main themes of one of the most important theological works in several generations. Introduction>

Celia Jackson began her search for the truth in July of 1987. Her journey challenged her significantly while ultimately leading her to the world of supernatural phenomenon. In her book, Revelations, Ms Jackson unmasks the spiritual theocracy of the gods, sickness, disease, lies, oppression, crime, addictions, and deception. Her discovery is supported by scripture from the Holy Bible with interpretation through the use of Websters dictionary. Ms. Jacksons studies point empirically to the true and living GOD through Christ Jesus, under the leadership and guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Revelation 23 {the play} brings the words of Jesus from the past to the present with a twist of science, superstition, and interpretation, which culminates in unsuspected consequences. Jesus Christ is brought back through genetics, tested, tried, and judged in our way in the present. It is very interesting to feel and replay such a historic time in the 21st century. This play throws caution to words subjected to interpretation, as all words most surely are. It also points out that interpretation is a very personal thing and can have dangerous consequences when injected with a dose of the heard mentality. It travels a fictitious path of the what if, through the corridors of subjective interpretation and finally arrives in the theatre of unintended destruction. It is almost fictitious enough to be believable. Hopefully, not quite! "
