Meditations of an Exile
TOM REIDY, Dec 3, 2012 - 144 pages
Meditations of an Exile is a collection of essays on a wide variety of unique religious topics, some of which have rarely been covered anywhere else. These include: why the Roman Empire and slavery are not condemned in Scripture; seeming conflict between the two natures of Christ; intriguing parallels between the history of Biblical Israel that reflect in reverse the past, present, and possible future of Christianity; why the modern state of Israel is not the Israel foretold in Biblical prophecy; the Eternal Design; why the Church tolerates and even supports pro-abortion politicians; why evangelization will not work in the West; who were the "giants" so often referred to in the Old Testament; is it evident from Scripture that intelligent life does not exist beyond earth? Meditations concludes with a commentary on the passion and death of Jesus that analyzes why the Jewish authorities arrested Jesus in the way they did and why the Romans never considered Jesus a political threat even after Palm Sunday.
