Corporeal Resurrection: The Pure Doctrine Restored Through The Prophet Joseph Smith, J. Peter Hansen

Theses and Dissertations

During Jesus' earthly ministry He taught the pure doctrine of corporeal resurrection to His disciples.

Those teachings became the orthodoxy of the early Christian church and were handed down to modern Christianity. The pure doctrine of corporeal resurrection was weakened, and in some sects, was lost.

The Lord restored the gospel through Joseph Smith. Part of the Restoration qualified him as a special witness of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Through him ...

The publication of this book completes the second edition of Helmut Koester’s important two-volume introduction to early Christian literature and history, published originally in 1982.

Fade To Black: The Failure Of Sacrifice In Faulkner's Light In August, Peter J. Goodwin Dec 2001

Fade To Black: The Failure Of Sacrifice In Faulkner's Light In August, Peter J. Goodwin

Peter J Goodwin

Faulkner's Light in August examines the vexed and volatile relationship between religion, justice, and personal and national violence. Drawing on the work of Girard, Bataille, and Mauss, I unearth the symbolic and cultural roots of sacrifice in the novel, concluding that Faulkner was deeply critical of any admixture of church and state. Faulkner depicts racial lynching as the sin of a society thirsty for vengeance, recklessly appropriating scraps of both religious sacrifice and secular justice, and hence unable to realize the peace-restoring aims of either tradition.
