First published in 1966, Events and their Afterlife has had a lasting influence in its field. This book is concerned with Christian typology and its meanings and implications for our understanding of history, of the Bible, and of Dante's Divine Comedy.
The religious world of the past forty years has been characterized by profound changes. Western and Eastern religions, both traditional and new, have rapidly developed into interactive, socio-political forces that cannot be ignored if we are to understand contemporary social forces. Until now, there has been no single scholarly work that deals with virtually all of the important postwar religious movements and issues in world religions. This unprecedented collection offers critical insights into diverse political, religious, and ideological traditions and their interaction in different regions of the world today.
A collection of essays - two of them previously unpublished - by Professor Adams, who has been a leader in renewing philosophical respect for the idea that moral obligation may be founded on the command of God.
The context was a building program for an urban congregation. The beginning bore no omens of controversy. But before long, both the pastor (the author) and the congregation found themselves in a storm that threatened the church's very existence and the pastor's future in ministry. It is common in this kind of storm that neither the preacher nor his flock will expect to hear from God. But the arresting message of this book is that it is often through the preaching itself that God speaks to the issues of conflict. It is through preaching that the issues are resolved, and neither the pastor nor the people are left unchanged. By example and by precept this book shows how to weather a storm in the only successful way--by preaching through it under the guiding hand of a compassionate God who knows our human anguish. This is a book you cannot afford to ignore. For, as one preacher puts it, you're either coming out of a storm, in a storm, or heading for a storm.
