From the author's Introduction: As this book's subtitle has it, it's a ""potpourri."" That expression can be defined as ""a mixture of dried petals and spices placed in a bowl to perfume a room."" But, having just published--at New Reformation Press--a little culinary masterpiece (A Gastronomic Vade-Mecum), I am thinking in terms of the secondary definition: ""an unusual or interesting mixture of ingredients."" Either way, you will surely enjoy this collection of essays. They are unusual and interesting--and they will perfume your thinking as to ultimate issues. A sampling of essays in the present collection: - Resurrection and Legal Evidence - Did Jesus Physically Rise from the Dead? - Chronological Contradictions in the Gospels? - A More Consistent Application of Literary ""Higher Criticism"" - A Short and Easie Method with Postmodernists - Law & Morality: Friends or Foes? - Demon Possession: A Brief Commentary - Transhumanism? - Muslims As Two-Faced - The Stereotypic Clergyman - On Innovative Theologians - Racism in American Lutheranism - Do Christian Children lose Contact with Reality? - Those Who Have Not Heard the Gospel: A Construct - Terrorism and Revolution: Are They Ever Justified?
