Euphony In Paul: Sound Matters In Romans 1:18–2:29, Keith L. Yoder 2015 University of Massachusetts

Euphony In Paul: Sound Matters In Romans 1:18–2:29, Keith L. Yoder

Keith L. Yoder

This is an annotated oral reading of the Romans 1:18–2:29, using the phonemic Koine pronunciation promoted by Randall Buth. The oral reading is supplemented by a detailed aural mapping of the text, laid out and formatted somewhat following "Sound Mapping the New Testament" by Lee and Scott. The features discovered here demonstrate that this text is a unified piece, with definite beginning and ending, exhibiting a style distinct from the rest of Romans. The author uses a variety of sound structures, from character level, to syllables, words, and phrases, even sorting a long list by sound. As ...


Orphic Powers In J.R.R. Tolkien's Legend Of Beren And Lúthien, Jane Beal PhD 2015 University of California, Davis

Orphic Powers In J.R.R. Tolkien's Legend Of Beren And Lúthien, Jane Beal Phd

Journal of Tolkien Research

In “Orphic Powers in Tolkien’s Legend of Beren and Lúthien,” I consider three interrelated strands that influenced the development of Tolkien’s most precious story: Tolkien’s own life experience, sources from classical mythology and medieval literature, and the hope inherent to the Christian faith, especially for resurrection and eternal life, as symbolized in the Parable of the Pearl of Great Price. This study suggests that Tolkien’s relationship to his wife, Edith, inspires the legend and renders it a psychological allegory. Three Ovidian tales from classical mythology that were later re-told in medieval literature also influence it: the ...


Were The Terror Attacks In Paris Motivated By Radical Islam?, Donald Roth 2015 Dordt College

Were The Terror Attacks In Paris Motivated By Radical Islam?, Donald Roth

Faculty Work

"Were the terror attacks in Paris motivated by radical Islam? In an interview published on January 13 by the Weekly Standard, White House press secretary Josh Earnest explained why the Obama Administration is intentionally distancing itself from French Prime Minister Manuel Valls’ statement that France is “at war against terrorism and radical Islam.” This logic used by Mr. Earnest to support this rhetorical decision is deeply problematic."

Moving From Fad To Fundamentals: The Future Of The Evangelical Christian Adoption And Orphan Care Movement, David M. Smolin 2015 Cumberland Law School, Samford University

Moving From Fad To Fundamentals: The Future Of The Evangelical Christian Adoption And Orphan Care Movement, David M. Smolin

David M. Smolin

Although the current evangelical Christian adoption and orphan care movement is less than ten years old, it has already attracted severe criticism. As an evangelical Christian and adoptive parent, I have been among the “inside critics” of the movement. The inside critique of the movement is distinctive in embracing the Christian presuppositions of the movement, while still offering objections to the theology, rhetoric, and practices associated with it.

Given the intensity and scope of my critiques, it may have been easy to misunderstand the intention as purely negative. To the contrary, however, my intention is ultimately constructive because I am ...

A Reinvestigation Of "The Creation Of Woman" From A Hebraic Viewpoint, Barry D. Fike 2015 Pepperdine University

A Reinvestigation Of "The Creation Of Woman" From A Hebraic Viewpoint, Barry D. Fike

Barry D. Fike

This paper look at the role of women in society and the church while investigating the original creation story in Hebrew without the sociological intervention and gross misinterpretation of the text by modern man so often used to show the "superiority" of men because of the "after thought" in the creation of woman. Because of the misinterpretation of ideas and words, such as submissive and helpmeet used in the Biblical text, many men claim "superiority" over women in a spiritual sense when nothing is further from the truth.

The Christian Farmers Federation Of Ontario: Integrating Christian Principles With The Practicality Of Farming, Suzanne M. Armstrong 2015 Wilfrid Laurier University

The Christian Farmers Federation Of Ontario: Integrating Christian Principles With The Practicality Of Farming, Suzanne M. Armstrong

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

This thesis examines the Christian identity and characteristics of the Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario (CFFO), a general farm organization active in the diverse agricultural sector of Ontario, Canada. It highlights the intersection of religion and farming that emerged from interviews and participant observation within this group. The thesis probes what it means for them to be responsible Christian farmers in contemporary agriculture. Christian and secular scholars from three key areas of scholarship—Dutch immigration to Canada, agriculture of the middle or family farming, and Christian stewardship—help to contextualize their responses.

The CFFO was founded as a Dutch neo-Calvinist ...


A Mixed-Methods Study Of The Variables That Influence Southern Baptists’ Affirmation Of The Inerrancy Of The Bible, David A. McGee 2014 Liberty University

A Mixed-Methods Study Of The Variables That Influence Southern Baptists’ Affirmation Of The Inerrancy Of The Bible, David A. Mcgee

Christian Perspectives in Education

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) had discovered by the late 1970s that belief in the inerrancy of the Bible was not consistently affirmed by their leadership. After a twenty year battle, the SBC attempted to clarify the doctrine of inerrancy through the Baptist Faith and Message 2000. A mixed-method analysis was conducted by surveying 502 Florida Southern Baptist (FSB) church members with a 68-question survey instrument to determine the degree to which they affirmed the doctrine of inerrancy. The study revealed that a large percentage of FSB church members affirmed the doctrine, but the underlining beliefs were not always consistently ...
