The Problem Of Vanity In Ecclesiastes, George Thomas May 1946

The Problem Of Vanity In Ecclesiastes, George Thomas

Master of Sacred Theology Thesis

In this weary and distracted world, burdened down with sin and sorrow, we naturally asks β€œIs there anything worth seeking, worth having? anything that will still the cravings of the restless spirit within us, and bring peace and satisfaction to the troubled heart? What should be the chief object of man's desire and pursuit? To what end should life be devoted? Where does man finally go, i.e., what happens to him at death? Are all things really vanity?"

That is the problem which Solomon undertook to solve in Ecclesiastes - he resolves all the foregoing questions under the category ...


Frederich Conrad Dieterich Wyneken 1810-1876, Edward Saleska May 1946

Frederich Conrad Dieterich Wyneken 1810-1876, Edward Saleska

Master of Sacred Theology Thesis

We believe that Wyneken may rightly be called "the nineteenth century patriarch of the American Lutheran Church” in the same measure in which Muehlenberg is recognized as such in the preceding century. It is the life, work and influence of this man of God which speaks to us from the pages of the past in this brief history, speaking as one of the organizers and founders, to his first love, a Church, which, by God's grace, celebrates its first centennial.

An Analysis Of Twelve Speeches Of Parley Parker Pratt, Mormon Orator, Morris M. Clinger

Theses and Dissertations

The chief purpose of this investigation is to determine the elements of speech style, the motive appeals, and the use of the elements of interest which play the most characteristic roles in twelve of Parley P. Pratt's sermons. While all the speeches that Pratt delivered have not been studied, since there are likely hundreds of them of which we have no record, it is thought that this study is sufficiently broad to warrant the conclusions that the writer has drawn.

A brief biography is included as a part of this study that a better understanding of the man might ...


A Historical Study Of The Exploration Of Utah Valley And The Story Of Fort Utah, Ray C. Colton Jan 1946

A Historical Study Of The Exploration Of Utah Valley And The Story Of Fort Utah, Ray C. Colton

Theses and Dissertations

The exploration of Utah Valley and the history of Fort Utah is the story of the conquest and colonization of the American frontier. Discovered in the days of Western expansion, the Valley was identified with the principal factors in the development of the Intermountain West. It heard the chant of the gray robed Franciscan priests, became a favorite haunt of the trail blazing fur trapper and trader, was the site of the ancient rendezvous of the Indian, saw the gold seekers trudge wearily on to California, and with the founding of Fort Utah served as the springboard of Southern Utah ...
