    The Liturgy of Creation

    Understanding Calendars in Old Testament Context

    by Michael LeFebvre
    Foreword by C. John Collins

Michael LeFebvre considers the calendars of the Pentateuch, arguing that dates were added to Old Testament narratives not as journalistic details but to teach sacred rhythms of labor and worship. LeFebvre then applies this insight to the creation week, finding that the days of creation also serve a liturgical purpose.

    Bloody, Brutal, and Barbaric?

    Wrestling with Troubling War Texts

    by William J. Webb and Gordon K. Oeste

    Christians cannot ignore the intersection of religion and violence. In our own Scriptures, war texts that appear to approve of genocidal killings and war rape raise hard questions about biblical ethics and the character of God. Have we missed something in our traditional readings? Identifying a spectrum of views on biblical war texts, Webb and Oeste pursue a middle path using a hermeneutic of incremental, redemptive-movement ethics.
