Heaven: The Logic of Eternal Joy by Jerry L. Walls
Requirements: .ePUB, .PDF reader, 1 Mb
Overview: The Christian doctrine of heaven has been a moral source of enormous power in western culture. It has provided a
striking account of the ultimate good in life and has for two millennia animated the hope that our lives can be fully meaningful. Recently, however, the doctrine of heaven has lost much of its grip on the western imagination and has
become a vague and largely ignored part of the Christian creed. Not only have our hopes been redefined as a result,
but our very identity as human beings has been altered.

In this book, Jerry L. Walls argues that the doctrine of heaven is ripe for serious reconsideration. He contends not
only that the orthodox view of heaven can be defended from objections commonly raised against it, but also that heaven is a powerful resource for addressing persistent philosophical problems, not the least of which concern the
ground of morality and the meaning of life. Walls shows how heaven is integrally related to central Christian doctrines, particularly those concerning salvation, and tackles the difficult problem of why faith in Christ is necessary to save us from our sins. In addition, heaven is shown to illumine thorny problems of personal identity and to be an
essential component of a satisfactory theodicy. Walls goes on to examine data from near-death experiences from the standpoint of some important recent work in epistemology and argues that they offer positive evidence for heaven. He concludes that we profoundly need to recover the hope of heaven in order to recover our very humanity.

The Soul of the Stranger by Joy Ladin

The Soul of the Stranger: Reading God and Torah from a Transgender Perspective (HBI Series on Jewish Women) by Joy Ladin
Requirements: .PDF reader, 877 KB
Overview: Reading some of the best-known Torah stories through the lens of transgender experience, Joy Ladin explores fundamental questions about how religious texts, traditions, and the understanding of God can be enriched by transgender perspectives, and how the Torah and trans lives can illuminate one another. Drawing on her own experience and lifelong reading practice, Ladin shows how the Torah, a collection of ancient texts that assume human beings are either male or female, speaks both to practical transgender concerns, such as marginalization, and to the challenges of living without a body or social role that renders one intelligible to others―challenges that can help us understand a God who defies all human categories. These creative, evocative readings transform our understanding of the Torah’s portrayals of God, humanity, and relationships between them.
