Book Description: Christian Fiction... or Biblical Fact? Today, the hope that all believers on earth will be "caught up" to heaven is being challenged in new waves of criticism. Is the rapture really taught in the Bible? Can we really expect Jesus to gather up His followers before the Antichrist is revealed? In this well-reasoned and thorough defense, prophecy authors Mark Hitchcock and Ed Hindson examine the concept, context, and consequences of the important and long-expected event known as the rapture. Discover the answers to such questions as... What is the rapture—and is there any historical precedent for it? Why do some believers object to the idea of a rapture? Does the timing of the rapture really make a difference? As you explore what Scripture says about the end times, you'll get a grander glimpse of your glorious future and the deepest hope of every follower of Jesus.

Book Description: Когда в октябре 1517 года Мартин Лютер прикрепил свои 95 тезисов к двери церкви Всех Святых в Виттенберге, он потряс основы западного христианства. Под сомнение были поставлены все догмы, традиции и приоритеты… Идеи Лютера о реформировании религиозных доктрин и практик и последовавшие протесты против продажи индульгенций раскололи Церковь. Но Реформация в итоге вышла за пределы богословской сферы, приведя к тому, что изменения коснулись отношений между духовной и светской властью, восприятия сверхъестественного, толкования прошлого, понимания роли женщин в обществе и Церкви, а также клерикального взгляда на брак и секс. Опираясь на обширнейший пласт современной историографии, автор этой книги помещает протестантскую Реформацию в культурный, социальный и политический контексты, исследуя ее воздействие на смену тенденций в искусстве и архитектуре, на трансформацию представлений о власти и понимания силы Священного Писания и теологической традиции. Снабженная черно-белыми иллюстрациями, несколькими картами и временной шкалой, книга будет полезна студентам высших учебных заведений и их преподавателям, а также всем, кому интересна история Реформации и в целом развитие религиозных и общественно-политических движений в Европе раннего Нового времени.

This collection represents the best current research in this area. It stands alone as the only work to bring together the best current work on these topics. Its primary audience is specialised scholars of the thought of Newton and Spinoza as well as historians of the philosophical ideas of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.

Book Description: The age of Elizabeth I continues to exercise a fascination unmatched by other periods of English history. Yet while the leading figures may seem familiar, many Elizabethan figures, including the queen herself, remain enigmatic. In Elizabethans Patrick Collinson examines the religious beliefs both of Elizabeth and of Shakespeare, as well as redrawing the main features of the political and religious structure of the reign. He understands the characters of the period as individuals but is also sensitive to the attitudes and beliefs of the day.
