When Souls Had Wings: Pre-Mortal Existence In Western Thought, Terryl Givens 2010 University of Richmond

When Souls Had Wings: Pre-Mortal Existence In Western Thought, Terryl Givens

Bookshelf

The idea of the pre-existence of the soul has been extremely important, widespread, and persistent throughout Western history--from even before the philosophy of Plato to the poetry of Robert Frost. When Souls Had Wings offers the first systematic history of this little explored feature of Western culture.

Terryl Givens describes the tradition of pre-existence as "pre-heaven"--the place where unborn souls wait until they descend to earth to be born. And typically it is seen as a descent--a falling away from a happier and untroubled state into the turbulent and sinful world we know. The title of the book refers ...


The Engagement Of Newcomers In Church Attendance, Ian Hussey 2010 Australian Catholic University

The Engagement Of Newcomers In Church Attendance, Ian Hussey

Theses

Christian church attendance in Australia is static or declining. Contrary to this trend Some churches have been identified as attracting increased numbers of attenders. Within this group of new attenders there is a category of attendees joining churches for the first time, or rejoining after a substantial absence of years. These can be called “Newcomers.” The research problem focuses on exploring this atypical population. Hence, the purpose of this research is to explore the engagement of Newcomers in church attendance. The focus of the research is local churches which have high percentages of Newcomers.


The Metaphysical Realism Of E.L. Mascall And Anglican Doctrine, Robert Ireland 2010 Australian Catholic University

The Metaphysical Realism Of E.L. Mascall And Anglican Doctrine, Robert Ireland

Theses

The twentieth century Anglican theologian, E. L. Mascall, made an important contribution to Anglican theology by incorporating into it the philosophical doctrine of metaphysical realism, developed by Thomas Aquinas. The Thesis asks about the relationship of Mascall's theology to Anglicanism and how it may be of benefit to Anglican theology, particularly since he represented an increasingly marginalized party within the Church, that is, Anglo-Catholicism, and also since his writings seem somewhat neglected today.

Positive Account Of Protention And Its Implications For Internal Time-Consciousness, Neal DeRoo 2010 Dordt College

Positive Account Of Protention And Its Implications For Internal Time-Consciousness, Neal Deroo

Faculty Work Comprehensive List

One of fifteen original essays by an international team of expert contributors that together represent a cross-section of Husserl Studies today. The collection manifests the extent to which single themes in Husserl's corpus cannot be isolated, but must be considered in relation to their overlap with each other. Many of the accepted views of Husserl's philosophy are currently in a state of flux, with positions that once seemed incontestable now finding themselves relegated to the status of one particular school of thought.

In this chapter, DeRoo sheds light upon one area of phenomenology, which is Edmund Husserl's ...

This study also sought to determine if there were differences in coaches' levels of job satisfaction based on ...

Viewpoint: What I See: Little Indias, Caste, And The Church In The West, Rachel Fell Mcdermott

Journal of Hindu-Christian Studies

Recently a New York Times article, "From Untouchable to Businesswoman" (July 22, 2010), carried the story of Kakuben Lalabhai Parmar, an illiterate Scheduled Caste woman from Gujarat who was selling her patchwork embroideries at New York's posh Asia Society. Thanks to intervention in India twenty years ago from SEWA, the Self-Employed Women's Association, she came out of seclusion in her house to participate in society, while helping to preserve the traditional handicrafts of her village. The result is a globe-trotting artisan-businesswoman who exchanges hugs with her clients, buys shampoos at CVS for her daughters back home in the ...

The Interpretation Of The Lord's Prayer, Q 11:2b-4, In The Formative Stratum Of Q According To The Literary And Cultural Perspectives Afforded By The Affixed Aphorisms, Q 11:9-10, 11-13, Richard Wendel 2010 Loyola University Chicago

The Interpretation Of The Lord's Prayer, Q 11:2b-4, In The Formative Stratum Of Q According To The Literary And Cultural Perspectives Afforded By The Affixed Aphorisms, Q 11:9-10, 11-13, Richard Wendel

Dissertations

The Lord's Prayer is one of the most discussed texts within the Christian scriptures (Matt 6:9-13/Luke 11:2b-4). Most commentators have focused on the Matthean version of the prayer and have overlooked the source from which it comes: Q and its context. Both canonical versions of the prayer alter it and place it in different literary settings. This re-contextualizing of the original prayer has produced interpretations that either obscure or reinterpret the message from Q. These efforts have been overly influenced by extraneous source material, often subject to certain interpretative tendencies involving Jewish prophetic, Jewish intertestamental apocalyptic ...
