Description : This English translation of Michel Serres' 1982 book Gense captures in lucid prose the startling breadth and depth of his thinking, as he probes the relations between order, disorder, knowledge, anxiety, and violence. Written in a unique blend of scientific discourse and lyrical outburst, classical philosophical idiom and conversational intimacy, by turns angry, playful, refined or discordant, Genesis is an attempt to think outside of metaphysical categories of unity or rational order and to make us hear--through both its content and form--the "noise," the "sound and the fury," that are the background of life and thought. Serres draws on a vast knowledge of such diverse disciplines as anthropology, classical history, music, theology, art history, information theory, physics, biology, dance and athletics, and Western metaphysics, and a range of cultural material that includes the writings of Plato, Kant, August Comte, Balzac, and Shakespeare, to name a few. He argues that although philosophy has been instrumental in the past in establishing laws of logic and rationality that have been crucial to our understanding of ourselves and our universe, one of the most pressing tasks of thought today is to recognize that such pockets of unity are islands of order in a sea of multiplicity--a sea which cannot really be conceived, but which perhaps can still be sensed, felt, and heard raging in chaos beneath the momentary crests of order imposed by human civilization. Philosophy of science or prose poetry, a classical meditation on metaphysics or a stream-of-consciousness polemic and veiled invective, Serres mounts a quirky, at times rhapsodical, but above all a "noisy" critique of traditional and current models in social theory, historiography, and aesthetics. The result is a work that is at once provocative, poetic, deeply personal, and ultimately religious--an apocalyptic call for the rebirth of philosophy as the art of thinking the unthinkable. About the Book: "An intensely beautiful and rigourous meditation on the birth of forms amid chaos and multiplicity from a major philosopher who is also an exquisite craftsman of the written word." --William Paulson, University of Michigan "Serres exhibits a rare, raw tendentiousness refreshing in its vitriol . . . it's the sort of light-hearted, perverse, and basically liberal tirade one hears too infrequently of late." --Word

It is a story that spans 30 years and 30 albums selling a staggering 212 million copies worldwide. It embraces world tours that have played to 25 million people and it covers the high-profile departure over the years of one vocalist, (Peter Gabriel), one highly influential guitarist (Steve Hackett) and their best-known drummer and vocalist (Phil Collins). Key fellow members of the band, management, road crew and entourage have also been interviewed, including Jonathan King (their first manager, who got Genesis signed to Decca in 1967), long-time cohort and road manager Richard MacPhail, Anthony Phillips (guitarist, founder member to 1970), Tony Smith (manager since 1973), drummers Bill Bruford, Chris Stewart and John Silver, and Ray Wilson, the Genesis vocalist after Phil Collins.

Description : From schoolboy band to sold out stadium tours and worldwide album sales of over 100 million, Genesis were one of the defining progressive rock bands of the seventies, playing a huge part in shaping the genre. Over a career spanning forty years from formation to the world reunion tour of 2007, they developed and adapted through many personnel changes, some of which polarised their existing fans but drew countless new ones. While Foxtrot and The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway helped define progressive rock, it was the three-piece line up of Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins that became the real hit-makers, with albums like Invisible Touch and We Can't Dance and massive hit singles like 'Turn It On Again' and 'Land of Confusion'. Fifteen studio and six live albums later, including six consecutive UK number one albums, fans still live in hope of yet another reunion tour which so far hasn't been ruled out. This book will take you on a journey through their entire catalogue, taking each album in turn and examining every track. It is an anthology from the viewpoint of a lifelong fan and it is hoped that this stirs many old memories as it has done for the author and provides an insight for newer fans of the band.

Description : Most of us are vitally interested in answers to the big questions of life. Where did we come from? Why are we here? What is the nature of man? How did we get here? What is our future? We consider any literature that deals with these questions relevant and timely. Preeminent among literature about the big questions of life is the book of Genesis. Genesis is known as the book of beginnings, the book of firsts. It tells of the beginning of the world by creation, the beginning of mankind, the beginning of sin in the race, the beginning of salvation. Dr. Vos examines those and other beginnings in the book of Genesis. He explores the stories in this book, offering insightful and helpful comments and explanations that will aid you in comprehending the message and scope of Genesis. As a book of beginnings, Genesis is the seed plot and springboard for the concepts and history of the rest of the Old Testament. Through this commentary you will have a basis for understanding history as it unfolds in the other Bible books.

Description : In the mid-3rd century BC, King Ptolemy II Philadelphus of Egypt ordered a translation of the ancient Hebrew scriptures for the Library of Alexandria, which resulted in the creation of the Septuagint. The original version, published circa 250 BC, only included the Torah, or in Greek terms, the Pentateuch. The Torah is the five books traditionally credited to Moses, circa 1500 BC: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. According to Jewish tradition, the original Torah was lost when the Babylonians destroyed the Temple of Solomon and was then rewritten by Ezra the Scribe from memory during the Second Temple period. It is generally accepted that there were several versions written in Hebrew or Samaritan before the translation of the Septuagint. Fragments of the Torah have been found in four languages among the dead sea scrolls, generally dated to between 200 BC and 600 AD. During this time land of Judea passed from the rule of the Ptolemys in Egypt to the rule of the Seleucids in Syria around 200 BC. The Seleucids attempted to Hellenize the Judeans, erecting a statue of Zeus in the Second Temple in Jerusalem, and effectively banning traditional Judaism. This Hellenizing activity was partially successful, creating the Sadducee faction of Judaism, however also led the Maccabean Revolt in 165 BC, which itself created the independent Hasmonean Kingdom of Judea. This kingdom was violently xenophobic and led by a priestly monarchy that combined both the powers of the state and the church. The Hasmoneans blamed the Greeks for all of Judea's problems, and attempted to forge an alliance with the Roman republic. The Hasmoneans appear to have promoted Yahweh Sabaoth partially in order to forge closer ties with the Romans, as Yahweh (Iaw or Iah) was pronounced very similar to Jupiter (Iove). While the Hasmoneans ruled Judea, they converted the national script from the old Canaanite script, today called Paleo-Hebrew, to the Assyrian 'block script,' today called Hebrew. As a result, almost all surviving texts found from the Hasmonean era and later are written in the Assyrian script, and it is unclear how much the Hasmoneans redacted the scriptures when they transcribed them. The scriptures the Hasmoneans left the world were later used as the basis of the Masoretic Texts, which are used today by Rabbinical Jews, as well as by Catholic and Protestant Christians. The differences between the Masoretic Texts and the Septuagint are both minor and startling, as the two sets of scriptures contain the same stories, but different Gods. The Masoretic Texts are mostly about the actions of Yahweh, Yahweh Elohim, Yahweh Sabaoth, or Elohim, while the Septuagint contains the Greek translations of various god’s names that appear to have been redacted by the Hasmoneans. The God of the book of Genesis in the Septuagint is called Lord God, or simplified to Lord or God. These terms are mirrored in the Masoretic Texts by Yahweh Elohim, Yahweh, and Elohim, respectively. One explanation for the difference between the texts is the Christian redaction of the 3rd-century AD, when the name Yahweh was removed from the Septuagint, replaced by Lord. Fragments of older Septuagint manuscripts still exist that contain the name Yahweh, transliterated into Greek as Iaw, however, none of the fragments of the Book of Genesis include the name. The name Yahweh is also not found in any of fragments of Genesis found among the Dead Sea Scrolls, which supports the Septuagint’s translation from circa 250 BC being the unredacted version.

Description : The Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture series is an ecumenical project, promoting a vital link of communication between the varied Christian traditions of today and their common ancient ancestors in the faith. On this shared ground we listen as leading pastoral theologians of six centuries gather around the text of Scripture and offer their best theological, spiritual and pastoral insights. With the aid of computer technology, the vast array of writings from the church fathers-- including much that is available only in the ancient languages-- have been searched for their comment on Scripture, then hand-selected by scholars who then shaped and annotated the materials to introduce it to today's readers. Each portion of commentary has been chosen for its salient insight, its rhetorical power and its faithful representation of the consensual exegesis of the early church.--Book jackets and publisher's website.

This, Volume 1, examines the archaeological evidence for the Flood and the rise of the first literate cultures in the wake of the catastrophe and traces the story of the great migration which led groups of early Mesopotamians westward toward Egypt. A few generations later Imhotep is shown to be the same person as Joseph, son of Jacob.

Description : Readers come away with a better understanding of the six-day creation argument! The framework hypothesis or literary framework view has grown in acceptance as more readers of Scripture place “science” as the authority over the interpretation of God’s Word. By re-interpreting Genesis, this view encourages Christians to disregard the plainly shared timeline of creation and instead consider it as merely figurative or poetic rather than historical and accurate. Kenneth Gentry carefully defines the framework hypothesis, while tracing its historical origins and purpose. This provides a helpful introduction both for those who know the framework hypothesis as well as any hearing the term for the first time. This important study: Presents strong exegetical arguments for the six-day creation approach to GenesisIllustrates the traditional interpretation of Genesis, a survey of exegetical arguments, and responses to alleged problemsDemonstrates the flaws in the framework argument. This book presents in a simple but clear presentation the basic argument for a six-day literal interpretation of Genesis 1. It also explains and rebuts the framework hypothesis, which is a leading view in evangelical academic circles. This book is aimed at intelligent laymen, though with the academic reader in mind, with definitions of technical terms where they are necessary and Greek and Hebrew words transliterated.

Description : Quintessentially British, Genesis spearheaded progressive rock in the 1970s, evolving into a chart-topping success through the end of the millennium. Influencing rock groups such as Radiohead, Phish, Rush, Marillion and Elbow, the experimental format of Genesis' songs inspired new avenues for music to explore. From the 23-minute masterpiece "Supper's Ready," via the sublime beauty of "Ripples" and the bold experimentation of "Mama", to hits such as "Invisible Touch" and "I Can't Dance," their material was inventive and unique. This book is the chronological history of the band's music, with critical analysis and key details of each of the 204 songs Genesis recorded and released.

Description : This introduction to the interpretation of Genesis encourages in-depth study of the text, and genuine grappling with the theological and historical questions raised, by providing a critical assessment of key interpreters and interpretative debates. It draws on a range of methodological approaches (author-, text- and reader-centred), as complementary rather than mutually exclusive ways of understanding the text. It also reflects the growing scholarly attention to the reception history of biblical texts, increasingly viewed as a vital aspect of interpretation rather than an optional extra.
